    I also have the same Blue Screen Problem.
    Rolling Dog, (or other helper) if you dont mind, could you please tell me what wrongs with my computer? I've fed up with it for long! This blue screen have been kept happening since I purchased the new motherboard and CPU, but using the old RAM (which the DDR is matched). Before I go ahead to buy a new RAM, could you help me out?

    It keeps occuring when I am playing video game, or not even doing anything! It restarted and showed the message of recovered from a serious error.
    Thanks!

    I've attached the zip file following your instruction.

    >>> It's a bit of a difficult calll. The majority of these errors are in a High Speeed (enhanced) USB driver. Are you using a USB modem by any chance?

    One was in your display driver

    And one just indicated Unknown_Image (Windows couldn't tell what it was seeing)

    I've only looked at the ones for March.

    Could be corruption on the disk drive, and unstable or overheated processor, or bad ram.
    Considering the history of the computer I would definitely replace the ram.

    You can try rotating one module out at a time, if you have enough to run Windows -- and you can also try software testers.

    When these faults occur can be a clue.

    I'm splitting your posts off to a separate thread.

    Thanks so much for your help! I am trying to find your other thread regard on this problem.

    - Yes, I am using the USB wireless adapter. You think that is one of the them causing the blue screen? It is the one from comcast. should I update the driver or replace it?

    - for the image error, is it caused by my video card or monitor? do I just have to update the video card or monitor driver? or other way can solve this problem?

    - I will order a new RAM.

    I'm not quite sure what to make of the "image error". It suggests Windows sees a "module driver" there but cannot identify it by name. It could mean corruption of the "image" in memory or on the disk.

    But I think your first step should be to test the ram -- don't take the leap of buying without testing first, since this is just one of several things that could be the cause. If you need help with following the instructions on creating a test CD or Floppy, let me know -- or just remove the ram and take it to a major computer store -- they should be able to test it for you.

    By the way, if there is any way you could switch to an ethernet connection that would be good for testing.

    The monitor is not an issue at all.

    System instability due to heat or bad memory or perhaps corruption on the disk drive could be.

    You should run chkdsk on the drive:

    Thanks!
    - I have placed order for RAM anyway because it is about time to get it replaced.
    - the image error, would it be possible due to the vidoe game I am playing with using "Alcohol 52%" to mount images so that I dont have to insert disc to play video game?
    - I aml running the chkdsk now.

    Ah, that could be. I've seen that program in a lot of threads involving mysterious blue screens -- and I'm just not sure what it is doing. It is probably using a lot of ram resources one way or another.
