i guess i'm never really sure. I know I installed the correct chipset drivers because they were from my Motherboards disc, I know I got the correct graphic drivers, I know I installed the right CPU driver.. i don't have a sound card.. I can't think of what else I need.
I'll do what setishock said first.
are there any other drivers that come to mind that i should have?
EDIT--- and i tried doing what you said, A True Folder, the "how to read the small memory dump files that windows creates for debugging"... But there is a corruption in the debugging files that i have to download from the Microsoft website. It won't go through the installation so i can't read the dump files.
hi, I figured out that there was a corruption because i had nvidia firewall on and that causes things to not download properly. I finished debugging my small memory dump file and the error in it was just a driver problem. (whew) ... from researching further it seems that it's an nvidia driver problem. So i'm going to roll back my drivers just a bit and see if that does the trick
