I am getting a BSOD with

STOP 0x0000007F (0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

and no further information.

So I got gParted out and gave that a whizz, says that theres no HDD

So I tried using Kubuntu to give the memory a check and look at the drive, it says memory is OK and that the HDD has no errors

I tried Ohplive and it says that no partitions detecteded and leasve me at the BASH line.

Anyone got any ideas on what this error is as M$ support isn't much help and trying to resolve this myself is coming up with spurious errors or not as the case may be.

I should say that the drive shows up under BIOS.
