Default Continuous "Serious System ERror" BSOD, Reboots

xp home sp2, gigabyte ep45, q9300, 4mb RAM

As I was typing here a second ago I got a flash of BSOD and the PC restarted.

Ran MemTest (3 instances), they were finished when I returned, not sure where the log file is.
Can't read teh .dmp file that MS "Send Error Report" created (its not where they said it was either :rolleyes: )

Only have ONE piece of hardware loaded and on : Presonus VFire music interface to Roland products. Only works when I disable the onboard sound (not how I want it)

Loaded new Azalia drivers, chipset drivers, updated BIOS all from gigabtye.

No idea where to start finding the culprit...any ideas?

For starters go into Startup and Recovery and disable the automatic restart so you can catch the BSOD.

Default Need error message

This was posted yesterday in another Troubleshooting thread and will likely be of help to resolving the issue.

This will halt your system and give you a chance to get an error message to help troubleshoot. Let us know what error you are receiving.

if you can boot into safe mode go into the administrative tools and look at the system event log it should also tell you whats going on
