My computer has been showing the "blue screen of death", it will quit windows and then it will say:

A problem has been detected and windows has 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 appears again:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is
properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask
your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows
updates you need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly
installed hardware of software. Disable BIOS memory
options 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,
then select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:

*****STOP: 0x000000FE(0x000000FE).....

The screen has come up multiple times. I have installed my new ipods drivers, so i am not sure if this is the problem or not. Then sometimes the computer will just shutdown for no reason. Any help with this would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Has this only been happening since installing the ipod?

Are you using Windows XP

Can you get into Windows at all? or does it BSOD as soon as Windows Starts?

yes, it never happened before the ipod. yes, windows xp, service pack 2. i can get into windows. it runs for limited periods of time. or untill i plug in my ipod (i think) thanks

If you havent added any new programs since the ipod try downloading the latest software fron the apple wed site click here then go Start then All Programs then Accessories then System Tools and choose system Restore, choose a date just before you installed the ipod software. Try using the pc for a while to see if the problem reoccures, if it doesnt try installing the software you downloaded earlier to connect your ipod. If the BSOB reoccures post back.

Had exact BSOD message a week after installing a new grphics card. Checked the card was seated properly,rebooted and now ok.Must have been a poor connection.

Only suggestions I can come up with are, uninstall the iPod software and run without it, see if that stops it. If not try reinstalling your motherboard USB drivers in case they are corrupted. I have seen this bugcode thing before but it was a long time ago and I can't remember what it was or how I got rid of it.
