When i start my pc up sometimes it gets to boot from disk then just shows a blackscreen, or just shows a black screen from when i turn it on, once i got loads of white lines across the screen and today when i tryed turning it on i got a blue screen saying something about windows having an error, the computer shut itself down too fast for me to read it. If i manage to get to boot windows it says "windows had to shut down" or something then gives me the option to boot in safe mode, if i chose start windows normallyi just get a black screen, if i chose safe mode it loads up fine. Then if i restart from safe mode windows boots up normally fine. Yesterday the pc shut itself down while i was playing music too, it has only shut itself down from windows once while playing music. I've ran a memory check useing the vista disk and my RAM has no errors. Is it possible my motherboard or graphics card is broken? The last things i installed where GeForce PhysX drivers, fraps and PC Probe II. My mobo is a P5Q Deluxe and my graphics card is a 512mb 8800GT. When i started in safemode it gave me some info about what happened, here it is: Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.0.6001.2.1.0.768.3 Locale ID: 2057 Additional information about the problem: BCCode: 1000008e BCP1: C000001D BCP2: 81C92ABF BCP3: 8B56B268 BCP4: 00000000 OS Version: 6_0_6001 Service Pack: 1_0 Product: 768_1 Files that help describe the problem: C:\Windows\Minidump\Mini082608-01.dmp C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-62806-0.sysdata.xml C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Local\Temp\WERDD63.tmp.version.txt I've had this PC about 2 weeks (built it myself) and ive had no problems till now, so im rather confused has started happening. Ive been defragging the hard drive every week too and as i said earlier i have checked my RAM (4gb corsair TwinX). I'll upload a minidump (had to zip it as it was 30kb over the boards limit), and i will be grateful for any light you can shed on my problems.
