the main numbers that are needed would be the 0x... numbers. They would be a huge help.

It could be a device or driver problem. Have you checked the Device Manager for conflicts?

Sounds like a device driver problem, since it doesn't give you much time to do anything before it crashes, I'd post the number it gives you and someone can help you out. Did this just start happening? If, so was it shortly after installing/upgrading/rolling back/ etc.. a device/drivers or any programs at all? Or did it just start doing it one day out of the blue without (or at least from what you remember) installing anything?

Another option could be a Hardware clean boot Here are the steps for that

Unplug all the external Devices.
Start the System in Safe mode.
Go to Device manger (start---rightclick my computer---manage) Device manager will be on the left click on that and it will bring up a list on the right

The devices that can be disabled are
1. Video Cards
2. Sound Card
3. Network Card
4. USB Devices and controller (Please donít do this if the customer user USB
keyboard or Mouse or Wireless Keyboard or mouse
5. CD and DVD
6. Modems
7. Ports (serial and parallel)

After doing this restart in normal mode and see if there is positive results. If so then try to enable the device
one by one and check out which device is causing the issue. Once found try the latest driver for the device

GoodLuck
