    Ah the blue screen of death, lovely to look at right?
    first off have you changed components lately? because if you have then you need to do a windows repair.
    you don't need to format and reload just to fix that, put the disc in the drive and like you would normally install windows, go though the steps until it tells you to install or repair.

    Gah! You took my line! "Blue Screen of Death". MY first question is, What operating system do you have. This is important because I've seen this countless times with Windows Vista. If you have XP, it could be a slightly different problem.

    I didn't really steal your line. all people in the IT business refers to it as such.
    but your advise is correct most screens of death happen with vista.
    but like I said in my previous post, do a windows repair.

    Blue screen huh....ok I will offer my help:

    1) What is your operating system?

    2) Go to start and choose run and paste this then hit enter; this will take you to the system's event viewer:

    %SystemRoot%\system32\eventvwr.msc /s

    Look in the different areas for an event that took place moments before the crash, see what is causing it.

    Post the "exact" message you are getting from the crash (note the error will have a red icon but be sure to look at the one with the time closest to your crash as there could be multiple errors in there).

    The fact is it could be bad sectors on your hard drive, a memory over-buffer caused by a virus, Video card issue, I/O sharing violation, Memory sharing violation, etc...

    And thus that message will play an important role in fixing the issue without you having to reformat (potentially).

    I wouldn't necessarily say that most BSOD happen with Vista. Its true that Vista, being relatively new, is experiencing newbie OS growing pains, but BSOD can happen with XP, WIN98, WIN95, WIN-ME, & 3.1. Considering that the majority of users are still using XP, I would have to assume that most BSOD errors happen with XP. XP is more refined that Vista--no argument there, but BSOD errors can be caused by third party drivers, programs, or hardware issues. That means BSOD errors are relative to the quality and refinement of drivers and compatible hardware per OS as apposed to the OS itself. I would go as far as to say that any stock PC that ships with Vista is stable enough to not experience BSOD until the user adds content and changes hardware (assuming you buy a decent brand). But where's the fun in that?

    "Its true that Vista, being relatively new, is experiencing newbie OS growing pains..."

    That, my friend, is putting it lightly.
