Hi Bummed :wave:
I am not a mod, but
Welcome to :grinthumb
When I arrived, one of the Mods welcomed me with these helpful hints.
After you have read them, they will have equipped you to make a good post in the right area to find the help you need.
Post your information in the BSOD section and Route44, Raybay, TMagic, will likely be your best bets for help right now. (If I have overlooked someone, it was not intentional... those were just the names that came to mind first).
So, here are the hints...
You should read how to post a new thread in this Guide.
Before posting you should read all the Posting Guidelines.
To access technical support you may go to the Forums.
Many users like to post system specs in their Profile.
System Specs are always helpful when you seek support, (see the first two suggestions).
And helpers may ask that you post some of your specs in your thread.
You can access many other online TechSpot guides Here.
Enjoy your Stay
I have not seen a repost in the BSOD area. Are you still here?
I am over my head even using this open board.. dont know how navigate or find where to ask questions.. had to reset computer to factory defaults. lost everything. Did not know if anyone got the message. thanks anyway
Very likely you have a corrupted device driver and at that, it's an essential device.
The best step at this point is to a Windows Repair. For this you need the Windows installation CDs (2) for Windows XP Media Center. If you have them and need help initiating the repair, repost.
