Hello,
I've received a blue screen the past few days. It says, windows has detected an error and must shutdown immediately to prevent damage to your PC.

Error code:
0x0000003b (0x00000000c0000005,0xfffff80002ea0664,0xfffff8800801)

I'm guessing this is a hardware related problem, considering i just restored my computer 3 weeks back, when I wasn't having any problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Bluescreens generally indicate a Memory of a PSU issue. Memtest will test the memory. A multimeter will let you test your PSU.

It can be that you have a corrupt driver for a piece of hardware and therefore not functioning correctly. Try reinstalling your drivers.

Alright, I'm reinstalling my graphics driver right now. ATI Radeon 4850 is my card. I do recall downloading windows 7 updates right before this screen started coming up. Maybe the updates are causing the video drivers to screw up somehow.
