original system using any of the "repair tools" included w/ SAS program?
In SAS, click "preferences">tools tab. Includes fix for safe mode, task mgr., ISP , desktop & many more. Hope this helps.
I would appreciate any ideas on the following:
The system was originally HP Pavillion A1230n with XP Media Center edition. MOBO died a couple of months ago so replaced with ASUS M3N78-VM and 2Gb memory. System has been running great since repair until last week. Began to show signs of IE7 search engine hijack, but all scans show negative (Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Avira, etc. Google Chrome worked okay, so problem was specific to IE. Tried to get to Safe Mode to run scans and got BSOD. System would boot "normally", but BSOD with page fault error whenever I tried to boot to Safe Mode. Replaced memory with same results. System now BSOD's on all attempted startups. Have tried last known good, safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, and normal, all with same BSOD results.
Ran Spinrite against drive with negative findings. Created new XP install on another drive and system boots fine. Cloned original boot drive to new 500Gb drive using Clonezilla and get same BSOD results with cloned drive as I did with original drive.
Tried repair install to original drive but system does not recognize new MOBO BIOS as the originator of the Restore disks (which it is not due to MOBO failure).
I have checked/replaced everything that I can think of that could cause this problem, and it seems to me that the problem is related to the image/configuration of the original boot drive since it also manifests itself on the cloned version.
I know I can do a clean install, but I have a lot of programs there that I would rather "recover" than "reinstall".
TIA for any assistance and/or ideas.
