The reading on the speedfan was 36C. The processor is a Pentium 4 2.8 GHz. I looked at the usb posts and did not see anything. I am using the same things I always have with the usb ports: iPod, mouse, and wireless adapter.

Does the error happen, when you're doing something in particular?

Did you try to run computer on one RAM stick?

Disconnect iPod for a day, or so.

No it has been happening during random times when i'm not even on the computer. The last one happened yesterday at like 2:30 am. I think I only have one stick of ram but it's what i've always had.

You know, RAM goes bad. I'd get another stick of RAM. It's gonna benefit your computer, and it's also good for testing purposes.
IMHO, I don't think, you're dealing with software issues here.
You may want to....

Go Start>Run ("Start Search" in Vista), type in:
sfc /scannow
Click OK (hit Enter in Vista).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy.
If System File Checker (sfc) will find any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD.
If sfc won't find any errors in Windows XP, it'll simply quit, without any message.
In Vista you will receive the following message: "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations".

For Vista users ONLY: Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder. You'll see CBS.log file.
Usually, it's pretty big file, so upload it here: http://www.filedropper.com/, and post download link.


If you don't have Windows CD....
(this applies mostly to Windows XP, since Vista rarely requires use of its DVD while running "sfc")
Note This method will not necessarily work as well, as when using Windows CD, because not always ALL system files are backed up on your hard drive. Also, backed up files may be corrupted as well.

Go Start>Run, type in:
regedit
Click OK.

Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

You will see various entries (Values) on the right hand side.

The one we want is called: SourcePath

It probably has an entry pointing to your CD-ROM drive,(usually D:) and that is why it is asking for the XP CD. All we need to do is change it to: C:
Now, double click the SourcePatch setting and a new box will pop up.
Change the drive letter from your CD drive to your root drive, usually C:
Close Registry Editor.

Now restart your computer and try sfc /scannow again!

It may help if you ran Everest to provide us with some info about your computer. Follow the instructions labeled "Everest Instructions" in my sig.
Also post the model and make of your computer.

Try uninstalling the usb drivers in device manager, and then reboot and see if the problem happens again.
Follow Broni's advice and disconnect your ipod, and try with only 1 stick of RAM at a time. From your specs you have (2 X 256mb) RAM modules.

SFC asked for the CD's, but I'm not sure where they are. So I should uninstall all the usb connections in device manager?

This means one or more system files are missing or corrupted, and this might be the cause of your BSOD.

Go Start>Run, type in:
regedit
Click OK.

Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

You will see various entries (Values) on the right hand side.

The one we want is called: SourcePath

It probably has an entry pointing to your CD-ROM drive,(usually D:) and that is why it is asking for the XP CD. All we need to do is change it to: C:
Now, double click the SourcePatch setting and a new box will pop up.
Change the drive letter from your CD drive to your root drive, usually C:

Now restart your computer and try sfc /scannow again!


This didn't work? See if you can borrow a retail XP CD from a friend.

Do you have a folder called i386 in the root of your main drive?
