Here is a Microsoft KB article that covers this issue. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946084
The only thing they don't tell you is that it's hard to install the HOTFIX when you can't boot to Windows. The onlt correct way to really repair this is to perform a system recovery. I have seen others try several methods to repair this and still received the BSOD afterwards.

I have tried several times doing the recommended procedures to do a system recovery, as stated below, but it wont even do a recovery just goes right into the BSOD ??? where do u get recovery disk? is that the only option i now have ???
- Turn off the computer if it is not already off.
- Disconnect all connected devices and cables such as the Personal Media Drive, USB drives, printer, and fax. Remove media from drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord .
- Turn on the computer and immediately press the F11 key repeatedly , about once every second, until Recovery Manager opens.Figure 1: Recovery Manager: Welcome to the Recovery Manager

There's a program on the computer that allows you to make the recovery discs. If you did not make the recovery discs when you first purchased the computer then you will have to order some from HP.
Try removing the memory and cmos battery. Wait a few minutes and reinstall them and try booting up.
