The Stop 0x000000D1 usually indicates a faulty driver.

Could be video, motherboard chipset or any other drivers installed.

Its simplest to just update all drivers.

Did a CD with drivers come with the PC?

Do you know the name and make/model of the PC?

If you know the make and modl of the PC (particulartly the motherboard) then you simply go to the support area of the makers website and follow the menus to download the free drivers needed, then run the downloaded programs to install the drivers.

As you have given no indication of what the hardware actually is, we can't give any detailed help.

This could be the result of a corrupted swap file.

I had the same message and cleared it up by resetting the page file size in Control Panel - System - Advanced - Performance - Advanced - Virtual Memory (CHANGE) Button.

When you get to the Virtual Memory menu, change the size of the paging file to a custom size (maybe, initial size of 500mb and maximum size of 1000 mb).

Choose OK and back all the way out of the System Properties panels.

Go back in again if you want to change to the System Managed option.

Worth a try
