Ok so I was playing a video game (falcon 4.0), and i randomly got a blue screen of death. I do not recall the error message of that specific incident.
Anyways, I rebooted, and after I selected to boot windows XP pro, I got a blue screen that said IRQL not less or equal (something of that sort).
So I tried to fiddle with the hardware, while doing so I think I unplugged the harddrive because when I tried booting again it did not detect the harddrive/windows installation and I guess it tried to boot from a floppy (which I don't have). The screen said something like "Please find a suitable boot media and reboot".
So I fiddled with the hardware again, unplugging and replugging the harddrive stuff and it took us back to square one with the blue screen.
So my hypothesis is something hardware related. At first I thought it was the video card (it might still be), but then I thought it could be the harddrive because of the boot menu problem I had. So honeslty, I'm really lost right now. I thought maybe you guys could pinpoint the problem based on the BSOD error message.
