The only windows disk i have is the one that came with my PC.
I cant think of anyone I can borrow it from.
Drivers disk did not work. MSG said "this is the wrong disc, please insert win xp pro cd2" :)


well, thanks for all the help but I guess there is not much you can do for me then. sorry to waste your time.

Try booting into safe mode and let me know if the issue happens then.
It seems the most common cause of this is the nvidia video driver. Booting into safe mode will not allow the nvidia driver to load.

The only problem with going into safe mode is the blue screen itself does not happen often at all. I would say it only happens like once a week. Its very random and happens when I am doing completely different things.

Lets see what you have in your startup

Please click on
Start and then to Run
Type in msconfig and press Enter
Now click on Startups
Then uncheck everything and restart.
IMPORTANT! In case of laptop, make sure, you do NOT disable any keyboard, or touchpad entries.
If system boots correctly and is running smoothly and faster then we have a startup problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.
Post back with the results

Are you still having problems with your issue?
It has been 17 days since your last response and I was wondering if the issue has been resolved?
If so can you explain how it was resolved so others may be able to fix it if they have the same issue.
If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.
