I just installed the motherboard drivers form the sofware that came with it, it told me to restart so I did & the i got a blue screen saying:

A problem has been detected & windows has shutdown to prevent damage to computer.

Restarting does not solve the problem.

(I'm using Windows XP professional btw)

Any help?

Hi ganna,

Researching you problem has turned up a number of possible causes. You may have a bad video card or driver, failing memory, or an adapter that isn't seated properly. So... try reseating you adapters first.

Also, there maybe more information following this error. If you have that, please post it here.

Try to boot your computer in Safe Mode

Look at the Event Viewer. Click Start => Run ==>type in EventVwr.msc
There are three folders - Application / Security / System. Look for any error messages (note the ones with the ! symbol) for any error messages at the time of shutdown, and note the details.

Good luck,
