Blue screen with white text?



About two to three times a week my computer will just have a blue screen with
white DOS looking letters. The only thing I can do is turn teh power off to
the CPU and it shuts down right a way. But anyway this is the message that it

"A Problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent
damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you’ve seen this stop error screen, restart your
computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps.

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. Id a driver is identified in
the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacture for driver
updates. Try changing video adapters.

Check with you hardware vender for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory
option such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove
or disable components, restart your computer , Press F8 to select Advanced
Startup options, and then select Safe Mode.
