BSOD help!

By neeljpatel

  1. Hi, I have not had to deal with the infamous bsod before so i'm not very experienced at diagnosing this problem. anyway, i have a dell inspiron 1420, dual boot (Ubuntu/XP) and XP won't start up in normal or safe mode (while Ubuntu is working perfectly fine-Also, both OS's have been working fine since I installed them for about 2.5 months). Both cases get the BSOD that says "plug-and-play device....faulty driver", i'd like to avoid reinstalling windows so any help would be appreciated.
