I love the smell of a hardware crash in the morning! :inlove: Ahhhh!

Seriously, theres a bit more that we can do. First I'll get on with the lecture :thumbsup:.......

A BSOD occurs when Windows has to shut down the system to prevent damage to the hardware. There are many causes for this, but here's the top 3:
:cool: malfunctioning drivers
:trumpet: malfunctioning hardware
:flowers: Malware (this one is fast becoming a major problem!)

Luckily, Windows will (most times) generate a memory dump that details the reasons for this problem. So, I'd suggest that you search your hard drive for files ending in .dmp and .mdmp. Choose the one most closely related to the time of the crash, then follow these instructions ( http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35246 ) to analyze the dump file.

Copy and paste the results of the analysis to your next post and we'll be on the way to determining what's causing the crashes.

Andy McKenn - please start your own thread for this issue. Also, please let us know if you can boot into Safe Mode (by pressing F8 as the Windows loading screen first appears).
