I'm sorry if this problem has been posted before. I've searched a ton of sites and found similar problems but no solutions.

Ok, here we go. I updated to Vista in June and have yet to encounter any serious problems. About a week ago I got cable installed in my house. About an hour after getting my computer online (hooked directly to the cable modem, now connected wirelessly) my computer suddenly went to BSOD while using slsk and then restarted. For a few days it would do that sporadically, always when i had itunes, slsk or some media player running. Then it would die during firefox sessions when I had nothing else running. After a while when i would try to reboot after the crash, it would keep crashing during startup while windows is loading. It rarely ever boots into windows now and if it does, it goes to the BSOD and once again reboots. However when I use safemode, the problems are non-existant. any help would be greatly appreciated. here is one of my many error reports;

I believe this is caused by your new cable set up and a device driver.
