my system has started crashing incessantly now and i am sick of it
one thing is it only happens when i am either playing online or surfing
the web so theres probably something wrong with my connection
generally what happens is it either hangs up and i have to reboot
or a blue screen appears for a second(on which some stuff is written) and the computer restarts automatically
and after restarting shows the message "windows has just recovered from a serious error".
I would really appreciate some help
i have a Broadband connection (256kbps)

Can you check device manager to see if the drivers for your modem are correctly installed?
Also, i would check the internet if there aren't any more recent drivers.

Is it possible to check what kind of error you get when the blue screen appears?

In safe mode:

Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCED, choose the SETTINGS button in the Startup And RECOVERY section, and uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART

Now reboot. This will result in the BSOD error...report the STOP ERROR and any parameters.
