Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.3 Locale ID: 1033 Additional information about the problem: BCCode: 1000008e BCP1: C0000005 BCP2: 8E9D79DB BCP3: 8D009C50 BCP4: 00000000 OS Version: 6_0_6002 Service Pack: 2_0 Product: 768_1 Files that help describe the problem: C:\Windows\Minidump\Mini072010-01.dmp C:\Users\Phil\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-62765-0.sysdata.xml C:\Users\Phil\AppData\Local\Temp\WER24E8.tmp.version.txt This was the most recent one and is more common. There is one other that involves a STOP message and video file nvlddmkm.sys. I installed Vista some months ago, but I had funky hardware issues on XP also, often the monitor would just go black and blink like it was hibernating, but the computer would not respond. This could happen in an hour or a week. These errors happen at random times, sometimes upon restarting, sometimes while gaming, and other times while I am out of the house. Another possibly related issue is that I cannot "restart" my computer, I have to shut it down and turn it on. Whether its the restart button on the front after a crash or the restart option in Windows, it will cause the computer to beep multiple times and fail to start, then retry over and over.
