    From what I've read that is probably a device driver. You might try Last known good. Press F8 when you see windows loading, then pick last know good. If that does not work try going into safe mode, F8 again will give you that option.

    Oh and you could try the vga mode if you think it could be your video drivers.

    0X0000000A, indicates a device driver problem. Have you recently added say a video card, modem, network card...anything?

    I suggested vga mode to perhaps get past a bad video driver.

    I did not have time, yet, to fully investigate the other strings of numbers, but I think this is followed by irq_less than_ or not equal to...

    I'll try and dig some on that. If you press the Pause/Break key while the blue screen is up you may be able to capture the entire message.

    Here's some reading from M$ which will probably not mean much but substantiates my theory.

    I'm still digging...
