Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
Hi, I don't know what happened but suddenly the blue screen of death appear on my XP professional. I didn't even realize it still does that. I had it when I had windows 95 and 98 but since then I never saw it. Can anyone give me some advice what do to do?
A stop error occurs when Windows XP Professional stops responding. Stop error messages can be caused by hardware or software malfunctions. The error messages appear on a blue or black background. The following steps, which also appear on the stop error screen, help you find out the cause of a stop error and how to fix the problem. To troubleshoot General Stop Errors: 1. Restart your PC. Unplug each new hardware device, one at a time, to see if this resolves the error. Try to run any hardware diagnostic software supplied by your computer manufacturer. 2. If this is a new installation of hardware or software, contact the manufacturer for any Windows XP Professional updates or drivers you might need. Click Get support, or find information in Windows XP newsgroups (under "Ask for assistance") and then click Get help from Microsoft in the left-hand column. 3. Check the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) to verify that all your hardware and drivers are compatible with Windows XP Professional. 4. If you can start Windows XP Professional, check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help identify the device or driver causing the problem. 5. If you cant start Windows XP Professional, try to start your computer in safe mode, and then remove or disable any newly added programs or drivers. 6. Search the Microsoft Knowledge Base for "Windows XP Professional" and the number associated with the stop error you received. Specific Stop Errors Some stop errors display descriptive messages such as "DATA_BUS_ERROR" that can help you determine the exact solution for the error. This section discusses how to troubleshoot specific stop errors, based on the type of error you receive.

The screen normally gives a clue as to the problem with a description and code, but it could be anything from a driver to memory error, if you are able to get into windows, as you should, go to start>control panel>administrative tools> and click on the event viewer icon, then in the left pane of the window go through all the catagories and see if there are any red crosses, if so right click on the line and select properties and it will send you to microsoft for a fault description or a solution.
