If Windows put something in C:\Windows\minidump that is the file that Windows made when it crashed. It contains information such as memory addresses, drivers, and other things going on at the time of the crash. This is sometimes helpful in narrowing the cause of the crash.
Oh. Open up Notepad and then open the file inside of notepad. Copy all the text and come back here and hit Ctrl-V to paste it then submit your post.
The easy way to open the file instead of going through Notepad and going to File and Open is to locate the file on your drive, you can also go to Start > Run and type in C:\Windows\Minidump and press OK. Once you see the file there, drag it into Notepad and it will open up.
Oh yea, when do you get this Blue screen of Death? Is it something you can recreate easily, like are there steps you can do to make it happen?
Here is one other thing you might try. The System File Checker. Go to Start > Run type in SFC /SCANNOW and press enter. The Windows File Protection will come up and scan your files and make sure they are intact and their original versions. It may ask for your Windows XP CD to recover some files. This might take a while and since it may replace some files with older or original versions some other programs may not work.
