Help randomly my VT3 computer is crashing hard and I'm getting the Blue Screen of Death, each time a diffent code pops up. Now, I can not even booth up my system right after the welcome screen I now get the Blue Screen. I can boot into safe mode, and I have uninstalled VT3 and am running a defrag.

This all started after I upgraded to Win XP Pro, granted Win XP ran fine for about 2 weeks prior to any problems.

Any ideas??

Hi,

Sounds like a service or a driver is causing the crash on bootup. While booting in safe mode (or even command line mode) note which services are booting up before the bluescreen occurs. This will tell you which service/driver is causing the issue. Then delete the questionable driver or disable the service. It may be an incompatible version of the driver.

Best

My machine (no VT3) started flaking out like that a few weeks ago and it was the Motherboard. It seems that when Hyperthreading was enabled in the BIOS, the machine just flipped out, but with it disabled, it was fine.

It might be something to try.
