Hello Ffrench, and Emko... To find help, usually it is best to start your own threads, since it is likely it will be assumed that your note is simply a reply to the original post /thread... I just stumbled upon your posts because I noticed some activity on this thread... and I am interested in helping folks with BSOD issues... Read this excellent tutorial for help getting started... http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic33297.html So... when you start your own thread... Provide your system specs... (motherboard, processor, ram, version and service pack of windows, etc) Provide as much detail about what your problem was as you can. Provide information regarding any steps you have already taken. If you have minidumps, attach the three or four most recent. Someone here will notice the new thread, and will get to you as quickly as they can. I hope this helps.
