One of my computers all of a sudden blacked out and showed that terminal 'BLUE SCREEN'. Its telling me CONFIG_LIST_FAILED, and the technical information states: STOP: x00000073 (0x00000001, 0xc000017D, 0x00000001, 0xF6D8ABB8). Upon restarting the computer goes into some "Dell MediaDirect" black and white splash logo then straight to that blue screen again.
I attempted to start the PC into safe mode, w/ and w/out networking and it skips that "Dell MediaDirect" screen but goes into another blue screen stating: STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF7C4C524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).
I searched the CONFIG_LIST_FAILED error on google and the common answer seems to be that my HDD is out of memory, which is not the case here. I also read another cause, which seems more appropriate, would be a boot-sector virus.
Any help received would be greatly appreciated, and a thank you in advance goes out anyone sharing their time with me on this issue.
