  1. Okay, so my machine is a peice of junk, but I dont know if I'm keen or just stupid. I picked this up looking through Event Viewer and I realized an absolutely undeniable cause of my BSODs: a Windows Product Activation error.
    Looking under Application I see that:
    ---
    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Windows Product Activation
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 1000
    Date: 2/27/2005
    Time: 1:47:32 AM
    Description:
    An error occurred while the wizard was checking the current Windows product license. Error Code: 4 0x80004005

    Followed DIRECTLY(and I mean directly, the next second) in System:

    ---
    Event Type: Information
    Event Source: Save Dump
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 1001
    Date: 2/27/2005
    Time: 1:47:32 AM
    Description:
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x100000ea (0x85da1da8, 0x864cf510, 0x867491b8, 0x00000001). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini022705-07.dmp.

    am I uber-observant, or uber-retarded because it follows that a Event ID 1000 is followed by a 1001, bsod. *sigh*
    if i am keen though, what did i catch and what does it mean, what do i do to fix it?

    help!
    thanks!
