Unlike the rest of these phonies I read the problem if you can't boot, try hitting F8 after the bios flash screen and just before the harddrive starts booting the OS (the windows label comes up) You should now have a list of options select safe mode and enter. From safe mode you will be able to back up all your files (photos, docs, music and don't forget email if your using thunderbird or outlook.) to CD/DVD or a network drive. I would do this before you start trying to rectify the problem because in the end a full reload will always fix the problem. Do you have the recovery discs that came with your PC? If not you can attempt system restore. Did you try to install the SP2 or just download it? If you are sure this caused the problem get rid of it too. Where did you get it? If it was from a torrent site (not microsoft) it could have been packed with malware.... Keep me posted on your progress.

Hmm... Well a Bluescreen is when your computer crashes, and (as you have found out) preforms a physical memory dump. This can be caused by multiple things. Such as bad drivers, PFN(page frame number) or problems with your memory. When a bluescreen event occurs, the is a technical information which has an error code that can be used to help find the problem. In order to fix this problem, you may have to remove any software, or hardware that you have recently installed. To uninstall software, you may need to boot in safe mode, which is where your computer starts up using the minimal amount of drivers needed, in order to try to prevent the computer from crashing. Here are some useful websites (sorry, my hyperlink icon isn't working):
You might have bad memory, a corrupted registry file, corrupted system files. Try starting up in Safe mode then backup your data. Goto My Computer and right click on the hard drive and select properties. Goto Tools tab and select error checking of hard disk on startup. Might need to reinstall Windows
There are essentially two major causes of the physical memory dump screen: Running way to many programs at once, errors in the Windows registry.The first cause can be fixed rather easily. Simply run fewer programs or purchase additional RAM or processor upgrades. Your computer is running past its specified limits. But keep in mind the blue screen of death should happen very infrequently. If you see the physical memory dump blue screen more often then the problem is errors in the Windows registry.This is a more abit of a harder problem to deal with. The registry is the most important component of your computer. The registry contains settings and information to run all software and hardware on the computers. When there are errors in the registry it disrupts the computers ability to communicate. When the system cannot compute, it freezes up and displays the Windows blue screen. I found a registry cleaner that is free and works rather well. It is named cCleaner, has been around for some time and did I mention FREE...Download it from thelink below run it should clean up your registry...where good men fear to tread.
This is a tough one to troubleshoot since there are several issues which can result in this error. Let me start by listing known causes.
Corrupt pagefile.sys file
Corrupt or wrong drivers for system devices. printer, camera, ect.
Corrupt program drivers, adobe elements, capture card software.
Bad System Ram Modules.
You didn't specify if you installed anything new, hardware or software but to trouble shoot this issue begin by download Memtest86. This will test your system boards memory for errors.
If your ram passes the test you might try removing other devices such as printers and its software. Testing the issue after each uninstall.
Last you can try replacing system files or performing a system repair using your operating system cd. If you need to run the repair option and need help just post back here.
