    Every now and then, (perhaps once a week) my computer freezes and I can do nothing but shut it down. Ironically, it still continues in whatever it was doing, say, if I was downloading something at the time, it continues to do so, but eventually, I have to shut it down. I can call up the task manager and even shut down programs, but nothing else until after a restart. Sometimes, this message pops up afterward.

    Error Code
    BCCode : 7f BCP1 : 00000000 BCP2 : 00000000 BCP3 : 00000000
    BCP4 : 00000000 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 0_0 Product : 256_1


    Technical info about error

    C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini012805-01.dmp
    C:\DOCUME~1\DARREN~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER3.tmp.dir00\sysdata.xml

    I'm running Win XP Pro (no service packs yet; I haven't gotten around to it)
    HDD 200gb Maxtor
    ASUS motherboard
    1 gb kingston RAM
    128mb NVidia
    Soundblaster Audigy 2/Gamer

    Thanks!
