Hello everyone! The computer I am currently using recently has been bluescreening randomly. Could this have anything to do with:
a. The hard drive is from a laptop put into a desktop, and keeps claiming that our "copy of Windows is not genuine"
b. I am using this computer to access help for a problem on another computer and switch the monitor cable with the computers on. It seems like it bluescreens right or soon after I switch sometimes.
Would appreciate help here! In brief, if possible.

The computer shows no other symptoms of failure.

<<The hard drive is from a laptop put into a desktop, and keeps claiming that our "copy of Windows is not genuine">>

The hard drive from any laptop...since all laptops are OEM...contains the settings/drivers, etc. for a specific system.

Moving that hard drive to a different system...as a boot drive...is a violation of the Microsoft EULA, since the license data relates to a system which is not the one you installed the hard drive into.

The only situations in which this would not apply would be if you are using the laptop hard drive merely as atorage, secondary hard drive...or (possibly) if you move the hard drive into a system which has the exact same hardware and is made by the same manufacturer.

The Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 5 time(s).

(my logs are littered these same events)

Faulting application wmpnetwk.exe, version 11.0.6001.7000, time stamp 0x47919370, faulting module Indiv01.key, version 11.0.6000.7000, time stamp 0x474eb2de, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x000ae89b, process id 0x11b4, application start time 0x01cc8f8fef33ebb3
this happened about the time of the BSOD as near as I can tell.

Ok now I'm really sure it's somehow caused by the monitor switching, because I just switched monitors and it bluescreened again. :angry:
Does that make sense? The graphics card also seems loose, it's a crappy tool-free PCI slot thing.
