Windows 7: BSOD 0x24 Doesn't get through Startup

BSOD 0x24 Doesn't get through Startup

I hope you guys can help me fix this or start again.
I would be posting according to the instructions but I am not able to get the computer even through the startup screens without the BSOD. So it all started with Fallout3 Game of Year Ed freezing so I would have to do a Ctrl Alt Del to close the game. I looked into this and no one has a definite fix so I took it as it was. The a couple days ago while playing it, I crash to a blue screen and the computer tells me it is dumping the physical mem, then it resets. Everything seems to be fine at this point and I turn the computer off. I go to play it the next day and it blue screen/mem dump crashes again, the computer resets. Only this time it never gets through the windows startup screen and it crashes again giving me the error code

STOP: 0X00000024 (0X00000000001904FB, 0XFFFFF8800279FFC0, 0XFFFFF880027A0060, 0XFFFFF8000C0EB7F8)

After trying different things the last line that I can see that loads is windows32\DRIVERS\disk.sys before it crashes. I just can't remember which way I was loading it to see the sequence of drivers loading.

Since then I have tried booting in: all forms of safe mode, the repair mode, the Windows 7 upgrade disk (both 64bit & 32 bit), my Toshiba laptop's restore disk, and the restore partition that came built in and is the only thing that came with the computer (which now seems pretty silly since it looks like my harddrive is corrupt). And I do not have access to a second desktop to try the harddrive on.
14 mnth old GATEWAY 4300-03
OEM Windows Vista Home Premium, Upgraded to Windows 7 64bit
AMD Phenom Quadcore
1TB Harddrive
ATI Radeon HD 4650

I really don't want to wipe the hard drive, but if that is all that's left for me I'm more than willing to do such I just don't know how at this point. I remember long ago that all you had to do was to get to a DOS prompt and you could run things like CHKDSK and FORMAT/C: and start again. I guess this is just not happening anymore.
Any help would be appriciated.

Hey CarlTR6,
I'm sorry that I am unable to post without attaching the ZIP files but as I said in the post I am currently unable to make it through the Windows loading screen without the system BSOD. If you can tell me how to work around this problem like by a DOS prompt or something to retrieve the files from the system.

Again, I'm sorry but I'm stuck on this one.

I guess you may want to see if it's a hardware failure, or a software failure first. Do you have access to another hard-drive with an already installed Windows that you can attach to your computer, boot from, and then check if the problem is hardware related?

Can you boot in the Safe mode? Do you have a Windows 7 CD?

As to the first suggestion, the only thing I have available to me is a laptop and a external hard drive.
As for the CarlTR6, have tried numerous times to load in safe mode, all ending in BSOD. I do have my Windows 7 upgrade disk, and I have put it into the cd drive, change the boot options to boot from cd first, then hit a botton when prompted to boot from CD. It then tries to load off the cd but BSOD and reports the same error. So I would then assume a hardware problem??, since it won't even load off the CD?
Thanks guys for try to help me.

So the word from the computer professionals is: the hard drive is dying. They hooked up to three computers and none of them recognized it. Then they looked at it with "Ubunto" and could recover some of the data.

Word of wisdom: open the case and listen while it trys to load. If it's making "bad" noises then it's probably your hard drive.
