    Is Windows XP suppose to be stable? I mean i just got the blue screen of death from surfing forums. WTF? I think I'm gonna go back to Windows 2000, but uhh the thought of reinstalling all the programs
    Ohh noo!!! I make dribbles!!!

    Windows XP is in fact very stable compared to other version I've seen. 2000 is just as stable if not more so in my experience. The only thing I've seen cause a BSOD on an XP machine is a driver problem or the machine gets too hot (faulty hardware) in which case it shuts down.

    Well, it might help to prvent it if you knew what it said, but drivers aren&#39;t always stated. Right-click on my computer can select manage, then go to device manager and see if there are any yellow exclamaion icons or anything wrong.

    Did you recently install windows XP or any new hardware? Updated any driver? Well, if nothing works, you can try to check the heatsink for heat transmitting grease. You know, if the temperature monitor was wrong and you have new hardware or something.

    did you do a clean install of windows xp , as in format your harddrive ect

    or just install it over win 2000

    usualy when you upgrade to xp from 2000 is where the problems occour , with drivers that aint compatable with xp

    The advice given is sound.
    Intel or Athlon?...If you have an Athlon machine check your power supply.

    Try a Full Kernal Dump.

    Peace brotherdoobie

    Just because a "proffessional" did it, doesn&#39;t mean it was done right. A lot of times, they are lazy and don&#39;t give a crap about what they are doing. Try opening the case and see if everything is connected correctly and that. Also check your drivers because are one of the main reasons for failure. You might wanna see if your power supply has enough voltage. If you don&#39;t have enough juice, it can cause problems.

    I&#39;ve been using Windows XP since it came out. I&#39;ve only gotten a BSOD a few times and that was because of bad drivers or me doing stupid stuff
