Two problems I'm afraid one more serious than the other.
My machine crashed with the stop error KERNAL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR when I tried re-booting, it reported "a disk error has occured press CTRL ALT DEL to restart, of course it did n't and I repeatedly got the same message. Prior to this I have had a number of instances where my machine has just switched off for no apparent reason preceeded by excessive noise from the fan. I'm 99% convinced it is not caused by malware because of my religious attention to internet security and the up to date anti-malware proggies I am running (AVG anti-virus and spyware, spyware blaster, windows defender, spybot S&D, Ad aware, CCleaner, A squared, spyware guard, sygate firewall). Overheating I suspect, is there a fix for this?
I proceeded to recover my system using the recovery CD I received when I purchased my machine but then remembered it does n't work. Device manager reports it working correctly and enabled. Ok, so that leaves the floppy drive, that is working. I used a friends computer to downloded to floppys 6 boot disk form Microsofts' website and got my machine started. It immediately went into checkdisk of it's own volition and then booted normally, I used it for a while but it has "blue screened" a few times reporting the following stop errors: MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION and KERNAL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR
The current state is that it has crashed and reporting "Unable to find an operating system".
Any help appreciated, thanks in advance.
