as a test..

turn off the machine..unplug it...ground yourself...open up the case..take out the CMOS battery (the only battery on the board...looks like a nickel)...hold in the power button for afew seconds (let's say 10) put the battery back in..close the case..plug it in...try to start up

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. if a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or ceck with the manufacturer for driver updates. try changeing video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS upates. Disable Bios memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to be use Safe Mode to Remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and the select Safe Mode.

the code itself didn't actually change...just the fault addresses...the first two numbers are the only ones that make a difference

do you have onboard video or an expansion video card (agp, Pci, Pcie) or both?
