I have been having recurring blue screens of death for the past couple of months. I have debugged the minidump files created by the bsods. There have been 15 blue screens since october 18th, and the most recent one occurred yesterday.

On october 17th, I installed the Chinese language pack for my computer that can be found here:


I installed it so that I would be able to see my chinese friend's facebook messages in chinese characters and be able to copy/paste them into a translator, rather than having just the blank rectangles for each character. The following day, I got the first blue screen. After several weeks of blue screens, I searched how to debug the minidump logs. Based on my amateur analysis of the minidump log files, I have figured out the problem is with Google chrome, my default internet browser, crashing due to its fonts. Therefore, I uninstalled the chinese language pack from add/remove programs, but when I rebooted and went on my friend's facebook, the chinese characters were still supported. This is strange since the language pack no longer shows up in add/remove programs, and I have since had several more blue screens.

I have attached a txt file which contains all the debugged minidumps. The two listed probable causes from the debugging are:

Probably caused by : win32k.sys ( win32k!GreGetGlyphIndicesW+af )
Probably caused by : win32k.sys ( win32k!RFONTOBJ::vXlatGlyphArray+5a )

I am running Windows XP SP3, and I am wondering how to resolve this problem.

Thanks for your help.
