Hello, first time poster and I'm having some trouble with my computer. It's a Compaq Presario 5003 500 Series. Inten Pentium 3 processor 80 gig hardrive and the like. 128 MB of Ram 930 MHz.
I first got it from my aunt for college, 3 years ago. She bought it brand-new but never used it, but once and it was sitting in her garage ever since. She gave it to me and it took a while, but I was able to update it to Windows XP Pro. But it was a burned copy, so I can't download service pack 2. So, a friend put Zone Alarm Pro on it to make up for that. Well, I recently was able to move and brought my comp with me and now I started having trouble with Zone Alarm. TrueVector shut down and I couldnt get it to restart at all. It kept giving me the blue screen of death, so I booted in safe mode and I uninstalled it and it caused it wouldnt uninstall; said taht there were other programs still using it. So, I stupidly began to stop all the programs taht were running and shut down one that told me that something in windows had been shut down prematurely and was closing down in 60 seconds. In that time, Zone Alarm was uninstalling and then I got the same message from it about the other programs and then finally it restarted and everything went back to normal. Once in my account, everything was starting up and then it went to restart on itself; did this several times. So a friend said to uncheck the automatic restart to find out what the problem was. I did this and restarted the computer. Once my account was logged into, it didnt restart but gave me the bluescreen with this message:
0x0000007E * 0xC0000005 * 0xF6BC44D0 * 0xFC9646E8 * 0xFC9643E8
vsdatant.sys * Adress F6BC44D0 base at F6BB20000 Datestamp 43798224
I get the same thing, even in Safe Mode.
Can anyone help me out? Please! I needs it!
