Something went wrong with my Windows XP system overnight. Since today morning my system is just unable to boot up, every time it ends with a Blue Screen. It keeps on restarting and ending up on BSOD. As per troubleshooting I tried booting into Safe Mode, no success. Even tried booting with ?Last Good know configuration? from boot options, yet the same result. Every time it leads back to the physical memory dump and the restart. As I have several important data stored on my PC I don?t want to reformat it. So I wanted to if this problem can be fixed by repairing using the installation Disk? Please help.

Hello Darpad,

I think you should try out the following Microsoft KB articles describing the same problem with several solutions. Hope it helps you to get rid of the problem without loosing your data:
