    then it said it did a memory dump

    can any of you decrypt what the hell that is supposed to mean?

    thanx for any help you can give me.

    normally that particular error msg... I believe it's "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" will be followed by the name of the device driver that caused the crash dump. It's not immediately below that string of text... I think it's halfway down the blue screen and it's easy to miss, especially if you have it set to reboot after BSOD. There's a KB article on it on MS's support site. Could have been a complete fluke, for all we know... does it do it regularly or is that the first time it's happened? Did you change anything prior to it happening? (new soundcard/video card/mobo drivers?)Here's the link to the KB article in question. Basically it's just windows blowing up when a driver tries to touch an area of memory that it's not allowed to touch.

    thanx for your help, no, there never was a device listing... however... i noticed, having the case apart and eventually watching it... that there was a resistor that started to glow after a few minutes of being on. As soon as that happened, the whole system started going hay wire... so i have since bought a new motherboard and harddrive so that i could raid the system... mmmm
    but thanks again.

    glowing = hot... hot = bad. :p I'd say a new mobo wasn't a bad idea in that case. Out of curiosity, what did you end up buying?
