    I installed synergy, razer nostromo's drivers, and Mirror's Edge today on my HP slimline running windows vista. I then rebooted my computer to finish the Nostromo install. When I booted back in, my computer hit a BSOD within 30 seconds of login. The reason given sited "tcpip.sys" as failing. I would post my minidumps but whenever I log in it BSOD's in seconds.

    I proceeded to restore to a restore point from this morning. I logged in and still got the same message.

    EDIT: Had a windows x64 recovery disk lying around and I ran startup repair. Boot succeeds and login is fine but explorer never shows up. I get a black screen and a cursor. control-alt-delete works but the task manager never responds and closes with the message "failure - security options" with title: "logon process has failed to create the security options dialog."

    EDIT 2: Found some info online that said that the black screen issue may also be related to tcpip.sys. Seems too much to be a coincidence. Running repair disk again.

    EDIT 3: Second run of the repair disk turned up nothing. Still blackscreening... IN EDIT EDIT: As I type, the windows start bar appears at the bottom of the screen... problem solved? Update in 15 minutes.

    EDIT 4: Finally, the computer booted! I'm attatching my latest dump files, maybe you could help me learn what went wrong? I hope it wasn't incompatibility or something between razer and synergy...

    Any help would be amazing!
