Question about PC Desktops
Ah, another "blue screen of death"
Your reg does sound as if it's damaged..
Have you tried a safe boot option?
If not, once the PC has booted, but before Windows starts loading, press F8 until you get the save boot menu.
Select the safe boot option (Without Network) and see if you can get in. If so then restore the old reg from your reg fix program.
If no backup, run the reg fix again.
If the safe boot option doesn't work, try pressing the "space bar" instead of F8, this should give the "Last good config" option to boot. Again try and restore the reg or run the reg fix.

Check whether the hard drive is detected in the BIOS or not.
Remove the hard drive & wait for 3 minutes and reseat the hard drive.
Check whether all the cables are connected properly.
Try doing flea power & the power cycle.
1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer, scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.
And press & hold the power button for 1 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.
Restart the system & check.
2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing & start the system.
Restart the system.
In this case you can make use of the system restore.
For XP :
Boot in to safe made by pressing F8 key(function key 8) can be found on the top row of the keyboard.
login to your account & start the system restore from start-all programs-accessories-system tools-system restore.
select the date on which it is working fine.
After completion the system will restart automatically.
Now you can boot normally.
For Vista :
Open this link to know how to do that :
If the system restore doesnt help reinstall the whole OS.
If the hard drive is detected then you can now install the OS by changing the boot priority device to the cd.
Live, Love, Laugh.
