Yes, exactly that bios and exactly according to the instructions of the PDF which was part of the downloaded ZIP.

Didn't get a chance because directly after updating the BIOS my computer crashed (afer the first restart which I did immediately!).

I apreciate his assitance, for sure. Unfortunately, something went wrong for whatever reason.

I just tried it again: no result.

Would this be a workable plan?

1. Make a boot disk with some linuxdistro, Pinguy is the most reliable one (works on most systems) according to the Linuxcommunity.
2. Copy all relevant files from harddisk to an external hard disk on that Linuxdistro. I would somehow have to access those "download" folders, my documents folders etc.
3. Download Windows factory OEM (of course the home premium version which I have right now) from here with my laptop: Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life
4. install Windows on my desktop with the register key which is on the case of my desktop which corresponds with the OEM.

If that would make the desktop start up again I can take other measures based upon your advice to detect any possible other problem.

Have you tried a Startup Repair from the DVD yet? If not, do so; the repair on the DVD is not the same as the one that gets booted into when Windows fails to start. If you need, you can create a CD with just the repair files on it (not the installation files). See here: Startup Repair

No, I haven't tried that yet. I'll try it out and let you know the result.

Petrov,

This tutorial covers much more than the title indicates and will provide you with a clean system:

Thanks. Right now I am running the repair disk. Curious if it will work.

No result. It finished after aproximately 5 minutes. I don't know if this information says anything so I will post the "problem details" and the diagnosis log.

Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 21200427
Problem Signature 05: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 06: 2
Problem Signature 07: NoRootCause

Number of root cause = 1

System disk test
Result: completed successfully, Error code = 0x0

Disk failure diagnosis
Result: completed successfully, Error code = 0x0
Time taken = 390 ms

Disk metadata test
Same as the two above
Time taken = 15 ms

Target OS test
same
Time taken = 141 ms

etc. for the remainder of the tests, always this sentence: Result: completed successfully, Error code = 0x0

Root cause found: Unspecified changes to system configuration might have caused the problem



So I guess I'll need a clean install.
What's the best way to copy all files from my internal hard disk to an external hard disk? Someone adviced me to use Hiren BootCD restored edition.
Yes, I should already have done that before I got this problem but you don't expect to get such a problem so soon after a fresh installation because the previous internal hard disk got hardware failure. I waited until the prices of the external hard disk dropped again (flood in Taiwan). Anyway, for now I could use advise on how to copy all the files from my internal disk to an external disk. Which program and how?

I just tried the Hirens Boot CD, it works excellent. I can easily access all my files via a miniversion of Windows XP and copy them to an external hard drive. Hopefully a fresh install of Windows will do the trick. Do I assume correctly that a fresh install will work unless there is some problem with some hardware?

BSOD Screen freezes with red/blue/yellow horizontal lines then BSOD
This normally happens when I first start using the computer for the day. Sometimes when it happens there is a sound to it when it freezes but not always. Once the computer is going good for around 15-20mins then it no longer happens until the next reboot.
