I did as you recommended, and was unable to copy the text in order to paste it, but since it was on my laptop, right after i failed at being able to copy it with the ctrl+c, it happened again, so i left the screen up and here is what it said (typed on my desktop), word for word from top to bottom:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to be sure you have adequate disk space (I have ~50% freespace on the troubled laptop). If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacture for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.
Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. 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 Options, and then select safe mode.
*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005, 0xF96DE795, 0xF9D38A68, 0xF9D38764)

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete.
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance (i don't have a system administrator in my pocket so that's out of the question...!)
Just a note, the above after the big gap is me staring at my blue screen of death and typing it out word for word in my desktop. that is exactly as stated and only because of your genius info letting me know how to stop it from automatically restarting so thanks a bunch for helping me to figure out how to help you help me!
