    I have a recurring BSOD concerning the file C:\WINDOWS\system32\win32k.sys
    this only seems to happen on the one account on the computer and has only happened very recently. Attached (I think) is a small picture of the BSOD screen.

    Between December 17 and January 18 (your first and last posts) you hadn't posted anything.

    I'm wondering, the weather in Los Angeles has gotten warmer the last 2 days. Could be a cooling problem?

    I had a round of seeing the error with the same driver file-- turned out to be a hardware problem with capacitors on my motherboard. Nothing else could be done. It was just one cap going bad, near the processor, the computer would start up, run for "X" amount of time, and restart with blue screen.

    Try booting into Safe Mode by using the F8 key at startup.

    When you are in Safe Mode run System Restore to a time before this problem started.

    Report back your progress or any problems you have in doing this.

    When I looked up the win32k.sys error, most of the results pointed to video adapter, chipset being VIA, and so on........

    But, it was definitely not the cause on my computer. There are many causes for this blue screen error, it does look good for it
    to be that using the keyboard one, but only trying the fix will tell. Good luck!
