- Blue Screen????

I usually leave it running 24/7... today I went to use the computer and I
had the windows black screen you get when Windows wasn't shut down properly
(I didn't shut windows down) with the option to start in safe mode. I select
to start windows using the last known settings. As it was starting to go to
windows a blue screen flashed (too fast to see what it said) than went back
to the Windows black screen with the safe mode options. I can get into
Windows in safe mode but I don't have a clue what to look for as my problem.
I suspect that the blue screen that flashes up when I don't go into safe
mode (I don't see the blue screen when I select safe mode) gives some clue
as to what is wrong but it comes and goes too fast to read anything. How do
I troubleshoot in safe mode? What are some logical culprits? Memory? Drives?
I am a novice at this. I have just done basic things with my systems but
don't know where to start to troubleshoot this. BTW I did try system restore
but still have the problem. Any ideas?? Thanks!!!!!!
Re: Blue Screen???? OKAY I got it now, now what?
"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent
If this is the 1st time you've seen this stop error message restart your
computer"......(it goes on)
Than it say "Check new hardware or software installation is properly
It then had these codes at the bottom
**STOP: 0x000000C2 (0x00000007, 0x00000CD4, 0xE1E3D008, 0xE1C5E168
I have not installed any new hardware or softeware in ages on my machine. I
have full McAfee firewall and virus scan.
AND by the way now that I diabled the Autorestart for getting into safe mode
how do I now get into safe mode?
