I apolagize for not seeing the stickied thread about this issue. I read the topic before, but wasn't thinking that this was the saem (stupid me). I am very very sorry.

Posted Image

This happens randomly whenever I use my computer (it seems even more likely to occur when there's heavy memory usage, but happens even when I'm just using Internet Explorer).

It happens at least once a day, and I fear it's really damaging my computer. The whole computer flickers black for half a second (you can hear the harddrive shutting down) and this message appears.

Before, the message would appear for 1 second before the computer restarts, but I turned off the restart feature in the BIOS (because when the computer starts again, the mouse and keyboard don't work).

I have no idea what this problem is, and all help is appreciated!

WHEW, Viper...that was hard to read as it was SO BIG that we have to keep scrolling back and forth.

That was a good idea, though, to take a picture of the screen with the error message.
Could you also copy and paste it so you can print and read it?

What I am wondering is, did you follow the instructions given, EXACTLY,
step by step?

If there is a step that you don't understand how to do, the smart GEEKS
here will let you know...all you have to do is ask. :tazz:

Sincerely, Janie :)
P.S. If you noticed, I didn't give you a solution....my computer has never
crashed YET so I have not studied that problem....hope I never need to! ;)

You are a genious :) I will update immediatley! Thanks a lot for the help!

Flowergirl: I couldn't copy+paste it because the computer had shutdown (with the exception of displaying that message :tazz:). You must have a low resoultion, because the image fits horizontally for me ;)

Hmmm, I only get half of your screen.
I wonder if others reading this are getting the entire screen message?

Could you tell me how to get a 'higher' resolution so it will fit?
Thanks in advance for letting ne know how to change it.

And you are sure right, there are LOTS of GEEK Genious's here.
It is amazing to me all the difficult computer problems that people
have, that someone has the difficult solution to fixing it! :tazz:
