Hiyah, after 2-3 months of having Windows Vista Ultimate, I have started to get BSODS, which flash to a blank blue screen then I have to restart my computer to get back normal functionality.

Im not sure of what is causing them, as they seem to be random.

Anything to help me iron out the little bugger would be a great help, as it is getting 2-3 times a day thing now.

Thank you.

Hi ecnalav...

Boot to the Vista installation cd and choose the option to "Repair the Operating System". The Vista repair operation seems better than the one offered in XP. This procedure will not damage or remove your data.

Usually when a BSOD occurs, it stays for a second before the PC immediately restarts. This way we are unable to read what is written. To get around it, one has to disable the auto pc-restart option from the StartUp & System Recovery settings. knowing the error code, can help identify the problem/solution.
You can download The Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) Primer from http://www.sun.com/d...sunpci/bsod.pdf It opens as a pdf file in ur browser. Click on 'save a copy' to save it.

Incidentally Aumha is a very good resource, which gives solutions to most BSOD's.
You can also get your BSOD auto-analysed at the Microsoft® Online Crash Analysis. If you experience a Blue Screen crash event, or Stop error, while using Microsoft Windows, you can upload the error report to this site for analysis.
