After a little research I can explain it, we can check the hardware, but if its not the hardware you can do two things: send the computer off (if still under warranty to be repair) or you can reload your operating system and see if that does it.
The Blue Screen of Death happens when your computer has run into a critical error so it shuts itself down with the BSOD to protect itself from damage. In order to check your hardware go to the Device Manager and look down the list of devices and see if you have any yellow, black or red symbols with the ! after them. If so let me know and we can fix it from that point. If not then it is your operating system. As I stated you can reinstall or send for repairs... let me know how it turns out.

I have a dell opticplex gx620. It was working perfectly until the windows crashed. I have been trying to reload windows xp but once i press f8 to accept it will show blue screen.


You need an actual Dell windows disk to reload to a new hard drive as it will flash the associated drivers and boot sequence to the RAM. Nothing else works with DELL!

I would recommend updating the BIOS, it does not list any compatibilty for Nvidia Video cards but it could fix the issue.

If this does not fix the issue can you please provide the following information:

1. What versoin of windows are you using? (XP, Vista or Windows 7)
2. Did you disable the on board video?
3. The blue screen error message

1 Turn on the computer.
During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top of the screen.
2 Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.
If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish starting, and then restart the
computer again.
NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot in the following step.
3 On the next screen that appears, click Restore.
4 On the next screen, click Confirm.
The restore process takes approximately 6–10 minutes to complete.
5 When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer.
NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer completely reboot.
6 When prompted, click Yes.
The computer restarts. Because the computer is restored to its original operating state, the screens that
appear, such as the End User License Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the
computer was turned on.
7 Click Next.
The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.
8 After the computer restarts, click OK.

Put your Vista CD back in the machine and hit any key to boot off the cd. After windows loads it's files it will ask you what you want to do. Choose repair, it will search for windows installations and list them, there should be only one listed. Highlight it and choose repair. Windows will search the installation for problems and attempt to repair them. This make take a minute or an hour depending on the problem. Once it is finished it will tell you to reboot. Take the disc out and reboot the machine. It may be wide when it reboots to try to get it to boot to safe mode first to see if it actually will fire Vista up, if it does great, reboot again and let it go normally.

Desktop PC crashing all at least once every session


This problem I had multiple times. The way I solved this was by reinstalling the O.S on my computer. Yes, you will have to lose everything, but if you want to use that computer again that's what should be done. However, there is a way to retain all your files. if you go out and buy a Hard Drive Case, and extract your internal Hard Drive from your Computer, You can hook up that hard Drive to your case and upload all your files onto another computer. A Case for your hard drive costs roughly 15-120$, depending on how fancy of a case you want.

Windows XP Home Edition on HP Pavilion a367c


Are you able to successfully enter Safe Mode? Are you getting a brief blue screen before the computer restarts?

A possible solution (if you can't get into Safe Mode to further diagnose the issue) is to repair the Windows installation with a Windows XP Home CD. If you know someone with such a disk you can use that with the product key that should be on a sticker on the back of your computer. Otherwise, HP should be able to send you an XP CD since you have an authorized copy of Windows on your computer.
