If the Stop message mentions the file Win32k.sys, the source of the error might be a third-party "remote control" program. If such software is installed, you might be able to disable it by starting the system in safe mode. If not, use Recovery Console to manually delete the system service file that is causing the problem.

I got the same and other messages with the blue screen. After trying numerous things a friend suggested that one of my memory cards was defective. Guess what, he was right. If you have more than one RAM card, take one out in turn and see if that cures the problem

HI Rabies

Thanks for your suggestion i will have a look at the memory simms to see if the problem lies there.

I had that problem, disable your level 2 cache in your bios, that should fix it

Hi Folks

Thanks to all of you for your help with my problem, which seam to be with one of the memory simms not connected properly.

Thanks Again
