Bought a new computer, built it myself, it had worked perfectly for 2 and a half weeks then suddenly starting up today gave me this blue screen error. I have not installed any new hardware, the only programs I have installed before the problem occurred was Limewire and Adobe Photo shop. I have installed all new video card , motherboard,chip set drivers when I built the new computer. I have tried re switching and checking the jumpers and making sure all the hard drives and cords are plugged in correctly. I am using 2 IDE hard drives 1 Master and 1 Slave.CD-Rom drive in SATA slot 4, The CPU is Intel Core 2 duo E8400, LGA775 and the mother board is a ASUS P5N73-AM and the vid card is an EVGA Gforce 9800 GTX plus. I have also ran Windows Vista Ultimate 32 Repair diognotsitc and it had a bug check f4 error but it had said its been resolved. As well it had used system restore and I had used it 4 times and still I am unsuccessful. I cannot even start my computer in safe mode. I urgently need this resolved.

The hdd are old western digitals, 40g master with vista installed and 100g slave. they only have ide hook ups.
and the dvd writer is brand new and is only sata hook up. hopefully that helps.
btww the ram is ddr2 crosair 2x 1gig sticks dual channel

If anyone could please help resolve this problem it would be greatly appreciated..
Thank you in advance..

By chance, is this a fresh install of Vista or was the hard drive and the OS from another computer?

There may be a way to figure out what is happening, check this out: HOW TO: Debug Memory Dumps (Figure out what is causing a BSOD) . It's for XP but the steps remain the same.
BTW, the minidump files are located in a protected directory, you should copy them to your desktop prior to opening. You could also try running Memtest to rule that out.
