    Can any one help with this problem?

    I booted up as normal, it got passed the windows XP black screen but instead of booting any further it just went to a black screen and then a blue screen with

    c0000415 unknown hard error

    I haven't updated any drivers or tweaked or anything for a few weeks now.

    I could boot into safe mode with no problems. I had to do a repair install and this has corrected the problem but I wondered if there was an easier way to rectify the problem if it happens again and what it the cause of it in the first place.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I also have an ATI card. Does this mean I'm going to have to fork out for another???
