Could it be causing serious damage to the computer

Hi everyone. Bought a new webcam yesterday and it's been playing up on my new computer since. I turned off the "Automatic Reboot" as advised and took a photo of the blue screen before rebooting the computer.

And when it comes back I log on to my account it says the computer just recovered from a serious error.

I don't understand how a new (web) camera (XP compatible) with drivers provided both by XP and the manufacturer could cause problems like this.

And everytime the blue screen comes up with the reboot DOES IT ACTUALLY DO PHYSCIAL DAMAGE TO MY NEW COMPUTER?


Thank you guys

PS - the new camera it's causing reboots everytime I start a video conferencing application and start sending video... last night when I checked under Device Manager there was this corrupted sign but now there's nothing, not even a driver for the camera but it's still causing the problem.
