Hi there, I am new to this forum and was referred to here by a freind.
My problem is recently I have been getting a blue screen with the following message
" A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated.
If this is the first time youv've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.If this is a new installation,ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updats.
If problems continue, disable or remove any new hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced startup option, and then select safe mode.

Beginning dump of physical memory.
I know this is longwinded but I am lost on what this means. After this screen there is a black screen that says
Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device
I wanted to includ a screen capture of this but didn't know how.
If anyone can decipher this it would be greatly appreciated. The only thing I have done is restored the system to just before this started but to no avail.
