My computer keeps crashing after turning it on. It usually happens once then it works after switching it back on.
It's rare to get a BSoD screen, but I got one this time and a error report after switching the computer back on.

I've looked around the web for the bbc code and it sounds like it may be a driver problem? Anyhow I can't read the minidump file and Windows SDK with the symbols just plain sucks, doesn't install because of some unknown error and a text book for a log entry on why it sucks....

Can I just attach a dump file? I don't much of anything on computers and think it would be better for someone else to read it >.>

I'm sure you have seen from your web searches, there are many different occurences with this same BCCODE. Most of the time the cause is a corrupted driver. Suggest easiest solution is to Windows restore, if you have a date when the error was not occuring. Lacking that, you need the Windows CD to repair-install the OS.
