Welcome wintersun <_<

C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\mini 032304-01.dmp
C:\DOCUME1\John\LOCALS1\Temp\WER1.tmp.dir00\sysdata.xml

Sorry, but this just shows the location of the error file. No information about the actual error is provided.

This type of hard system crash can be difficult to diagnose. Video encoding is very demanding on your system, and any weaknesses are going to be exposed. You may want to test your memory using memtest86: http://www.memtest86.com. Also check for overheating and make sure all your fans are operating.

It could also be a software bug, be sure you have the latest versions of these programs installed on your system.

Installation
===============
Memtest86 is a stand alone program that cannot be executed under windows and must
be loaded from a floppy disk.

To install Memtest86:
- Extract the files from the zip archive
- Open the directory where the files were extracted and click on "install.bat".
- The install program will prompt you for the floppy drive and also prompt you to
  insert a blank floppy.
- To run Memtest86 leave the floppy in the drive and reboot.

NOTE: After the boot floppy has been created you will not be able to read the floppy
from windows.  This is normal.
