  1. ok so heres what it says when the blue screen appears! come on guys work your magic!!

    A problem has been detedcted and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. The problem seems to be caused by the following file : win32k.sys

    Page_fault_in_nonpage_aread

    Blah blah (stuff about contacting your system admin)

    Check software – contact manufacturer
    Remove or disable any newly installed software (heaps of random crap about deleting or reinstalling software)

    Technical info

    ***stop: 0x00000050 _0xf51ec790, 0x00000000, 0xbf82dd4b, 0x00000000)

    ther could be a thousand causes. how about you look into your computer's history (focusing on recent changes)?

    Dekade,

    Failing at win32k.sys is very common and it maybe bad ram. When Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 and a minidump to the folder \windows\minidump. Check system event 1001 and it has the content of the blue screen

    Event ID: 1001
    Source: Save Dump
    Description:
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.The bugcheck was : 0xc000000a (0xe1270188, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804032100).
    Microsoft Windows..... A dump was saved in: .......

    Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001. Copy the content and paste it back here

    Zip 5 to 6 minidumps and attach the zip files here. I will study the dump and find out the culprit.
