Specs: Windows XP
Hi, i have recently re installed windows onto my laptop. After installing the drivers from the acer website, supposedly for this model, my computer now blue screens, but only occasionally. After trying to read as much as i can from the blue screen i think its a driver issue but i have tried (as far as i can tell) every driver.

If anyone has had a simillar problem i would be really greatfull for help

The only useful way to troubleshoot BSOD STOP errors is to
analyze the memory dump files with WinDbg (Windows

Otherwise, you're just guessing at what the problem is.

If your PC has crashed with a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death), it creates minidump files (if Small memory dump setting is checked, otherwise, complete memory dumps will be created and they are much larger) that are named "MiniDateof dump.dmp". Example: Mini072508-01.dmp is a crash dump file created on July 25th, 2008. These files are located in the C:\WINDOWS\Minidump directory.

You could try posting the Stop error code too:

If your PC is auto restarting though, you'll need to turn off that feature to get the STOP error displayed on the screen by either going into Safe Mode and disabling it or by disabling it in an F8 startup menu by selecting “Disable Automatic Restart” option. If those two methods don't work, you may need a utility to turn that off:

Just another stupid saying...
