    Your Pc specs show that you are using Xp - is that the case?

    Post the latest minidump files
    Look in c:\windows\minidump
    ZIP them and attach them to your next post.

    Win Vista file - linked to the network driver

    Caused By Driver : ntkrnlpa.exe
    A part of Win Vista - a driver conflict maybe - have you installed any new hardware - software recently?

    Caused By Driver : nvlddmkm.sys
    Update you NVidia graphic driver - from their website - let it scan your Pc for the right one.

    Check Device Manager - for yellow exclamation marks.
    Start button>Control Panel>System and Maintenance.
    Administrative Tools>Double-Click Computer Management>Device Manager

    Not the best thing to have done - yellow exclamation marks mean that a driver may be faulty but needed.
    Always best to download new drivers to the desktop - then uninstall the faulty one - install the new.

    Do you remember what they were?

    Not good news - see if you can get online and report back any other problems that you may have.

    Edit.
    Are you now using the same Pc with the problem?

    Device manager>network adapters.
    Click on the + to expand
    Rght click on the device>properties>details tab>from the drop down list
    Choose hardware id and post the information.

    Have you check the Pc - that it is all a Ok and that you can get online etc?

    If no - you cannot get online etc..

    What is the make and model number of the Pc.
    What is the Service Tag number - it should be on the Pc case?
