Hi. When i boot this laptop (running on vista) i get the Blue Screen of Death. When i try boot into safe mode, it stalls on the line "windows\system32\drivers\crcdisk.sys" for a few mins then reboots itself. Then, nothing....no picture, no windows.
Ive found out since that this notebook took a fall. Could this be a Hard disk problem ?

You boot files could be damaged. Try booting up in Safe mode. To boot in to Safe Mode. Press the F8 key while booting up and you will get a list of booting options. Choose the Safe mode. If you are able to boot up in Safe mode, then the next normal boot should solve the issue.
What is happening when you press the power Button? Do you see any ligths, Any HDD moves? IF DOES.
TURN OFF by pressing and holding your finger on power button.
wait 60 sec. turn on and repeatedly press several times at F8 button.
If page opens on black and white, Use SAFE MODE.
wait til all line down. Then you will see windows opening in safe mode.
WHat ever you install last, remove, scan your computer for virus,spyware. when its finished, check your computer if need defragmentation. by Accessories>System Tools> Defragment.
If message comes such as windows will do this at schedule time or so.
Just turn off your computer using shotdown option (NOT BROWN BUTTON ON START) go to next arrow.
then turn on again see if windows comes back.
Try removing one memory module then boot again and see if the same thing happens. If it does swap it out with the other one and reboot again. If this solves your problem one of your ram modules is bad and requires replacement.
the key to getting into safe mode....tapping F8 (only that key) super fast, not stopping until you hear a beep...and see the option to boot into safe mode. The most common reason that it will not work is that it is not pressed fast enough or early enough. You will know that you missed your chance if you see the windows loading screen......start pressing it right away when you restart your computer and don't stop pressing F8 until you see the black screen with the white letters giving you the option to boot into safe mode.
