this does me no good. i cant tell where the error is from this. without the BSOD (which didnt apper) i have no way of knowing the error code.

Hello

There is a way to find details of your BSOD, have you looked in the event viewer for the error report?

Hope this helps

I would also go ahead and update your video driver. I have seen a ton of issues caused by old video drivers and newer programs - updates. You should also consider updating audio and lan drivers.

From the error report from Microsoft - this is a driver issue. Here's a link on how to find BSOD error message info: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...tml#entry409491

As rigel says, video drivers are the most common cause of this. Other major causes are:
- viruses
- network drivers
- motherboard/chipset drivers
- CD/DVD ripping programs

There were no logs in the event veiwer. Well there was one involving chdisk from this morning something about Windows thinking the D Drive (where the OS is stored) being corrupt but it checked out fine. All drivers are up to date with windows certified drivers.

Heres the issue Ive been having since my failed Ubuntu Install as promised

Heres what happened Last night i bought a brand new Hard drive and installed it in my computer. This afternoon i installed Ubuntu on it. Install seemed to go ok no errors or anything of that nature. I rebooted and got past the Post and into the Boot check. Thats when it happened I got this

Same thing happened when I tried to boot from either Hard Drive. So I broke out my restore CDs and am currently booting into windows via them (Booting from the First CD and then selecting quit seems to override my problem)

Any help is greatly appricated.
