The Blue Screen Of Death pops up at every start-up...any ideas why this might be happening? Sometimes it pops up when I plug in the eathernet cable. It's not a big deal, but some help would be great. :tazz:

Most likely faulty hardware or malware. Or both.

Pop to the Malware forum and post a HiJack This log just to check, it wouldn't hurt.

bsod's are very often associated with corrupt driver files. Like murray said, the stop code that is displayed by the bsod is essential to proper diagnosis. right now I'm thinking its a tcp/ip problem, since it seems to be related to plugging in the ethernet card sometimes.

I posted this same problem a couple of months ago, but never really had time to fix the problem. I'm having four different problems with my computer:

1) The Blue Screen Of Death pops up twice at every start-up.
2) When I shutdown my computer, it restarts.
3) On MSN Messenger, my computer freezes when I try to send someone a file or receive a file.
4) After I hooked up my new power supply, I hear a squeeky sound (I don't know if that's much of a problem).

I thought maybe the power supply would have to do with something, but I hooked up the new power supply last night and I have the same problems.

Yes, I know Windows Millennium is a big part of the problem and if I absolutely have to, I'll install Windows XP, but is there anything I can do to fix these problems? Thank you.
