Yeah. Write down the error code next time. If it just flashes the blue screen and then restarts, go into your BIOS and disable "restart on errors" or something like that. Can't remember what it says exactly.

Also, you should run a memtest. If you only have one stick of RAM, you're going to have to (since you can't rule out another stick as faulty).

there should be more than that after the numbers, right?

EDIT: it seems to be software related. Boot into safe mode if it will let you.

That looks like a typical BSOD to me? What do you mean, foothead? It never really tells you specifics.

Can you boot into safe mode? Hit F8 at startup to boot into safe mode and see.

no, there is some more stuff in the middle though.

My boot sequence:
bios stuff
windows spash (the black one)
boot selection (black with boot normally, last known good config, and safe mode, safe mode w/ cmd prompt, safe mode w/ networking0

Any choice leads to bsod

It usually says something like 'SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED'

according to M$ its driver related though so you should be able to get into safe mode.

Okay, so that pretty much rules out a driver corruption (unless it was a very basic driver).

So we're pretty much down to bad RAM or a hard drive error. Run a memtest. If you don't know how, I'm sure we can walk you through it.

Oops. You are right. My bad. I completely forgot about that. It will usually tell you the file that it has trouble with, as well. Could be a .dll or .sys file, right? It's been a while for a BSOD on my end...

And yes, about the driver thing. That's correct.

Were you very low on HD space? That could also cause this error.
