BSOD whether trying to boot normally or into safe mode.  Have memory tests running right now - 3/4 of the way through and everything is passing.  No added cards (adapters) installed.  Running Windows XP, SP3 on a Dell Vostro 200.  Almost 5 pm here, I'll check back in the morning.

If it turns out it's not the memory then you might try to:
1) Check the NTFS volume with chkdsk
Startup with a Windows 7 install CD and open a command prompt (shift-F10).
Verify that drive C is the correct volume.
dir c:
chkdsk c:
If the output indicates that there are errors then a repair can be performed via:
chkdsk c: /f /r

2) Select the "Last Known Good Configuration" by pressing F8 at startup.

I'm also unable to get to a command prompt via shift-F10 (after booting to a Windows XP CD) or to take the repair option when booting from CD - both bring up the BSOD.  The last 2 lines on the BSOD are:  STOP:  0x00000050 (0xFFFF0014, 0x00000001, 0xF6F3BF81, 0x00000000)  -- and  -- ntfs.sys - address F6F3BF81 base at F6EEC000, DareStamp 41107eea.

I neglected to mention, but I had also tried "Last known good configuration" - still got BSOD.

I think it's looking like I'll have to reformat and reload.

Unfortunately Shift-F10 does indeed not work with a Windows XP CD. I actually mentioned to use a Windows 7 install CD. You can download an evaluation version of Windows 7 Enterprise here.

Thanks Zalazar.  I did get chkdsk to run, and though it took awhile, it fixed the problem.  No more BSOD with the page fault error!  Thanks again.

You're most welcome and very good to hear that the chkdsk solved it.
Thanks for the grade.
