Sadly when I was recieing the BSOD and an error notice simular to yours "stop error" I finally had to reformat and reinstall the O/S :-(. As long as you are not losing any important data its only time you will lose.You will have to reinstall all of your programs and updates also ! Microsoft will supply you with step bty step install instructions or you can find them online with access to another PC ! Good Luck
thanks for replays but when i shutdown my windows XP pro sp3 always BSOD appears, dr.watson notices nothing and problem remains and as far as i can tell it seems is doing no harm to my computer but has become so annoyance as I must turn off the plug to shut it down. does anyone know how to fix it?
any time anyone pulls the plug out of a running PC they run the risk of damaging the motherboard. The safest way is to just press in and hold the button on the tower untill the PC safely shuts down. A new lesson learned.
I would just add that after pressing in and holding the button on the tower untill the PC safely shuts down, you might then want to unplug the psu(or turn off the switch). It is possible that your computer is set to hibernate when pressing and holding the power button.
