    you"ll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. if you dont have any installation media (like a disc or USB device) contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer.

    Press enter to try again
    press f8 for startup settings"

    Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

    You can order recovery media from the manufacturer. Here's information for most of the manufacturer's that supply PC's in the US: Order Recovery Discs (USA)

    Contact iBuyPower and see what they have to say. I'm not familiar with them, but most system manufacturer's have a 1 year warranty on the hardware - and this might be a failed hard drive.

    To test the hard drive, try one of these tests: Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

    Also, it's usually cheaper to get a set of recovery disks from the PC manufacturer than it is to buy a new copy of the OS from Microsoft. And the PC Manufacturer usually includes the needed drivers and some free software - where Microsoft does not.
