...can be related to a number of things..drivers, bad RAM, hardware conflicts. It would help if we knew when the BSOD was occurring.. Maybe when you shut down the computer?

When did this start happening? After a program installation? After a driver or Windows Update? Is your computer completely up to date with the Windows Udpates?

Is this occuring on your XP Media Center computer?

Have you recently updated your video drivers? If not, try updating your video drivers to the most recent WHQL certified ones if you can.

Hope this helps and let us know how it goes.

I can tell you is that it started happening after I got my Zune which was at christmas. But I haven't had any problems with it so I kinda ruled that one out. From what I have seen it happens after I unplug my laptop from the power cord. I am pretty sure I have all the updates and my drivers are up to date and I am running Windows Media Center.

If you're not completely sure, then please visit the Windows Update site and download any critical updates required.. Then as previously, state, please update the various drivers I indicated.

If the computer is throwing BSODs only when unplugged or because of Zune, then you might check the computer manufacturer's website and check for updated motherboard drivers.

Hope this helps.

installed all the updates and I reinstalled all the drivers you said including the motherboard. And about the cause of the error it happened again last night even though it had been plugged in for about a hour.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
