It is rare for these error numbers to be of much help except to those knowledgeable in the inner workings of Windows. What is generally more helpful is to identify what is leading to the error, such as what software or new driver has been recently installed or what program is running when the error occurs. Quite often it is something that loads at startup without the user knowing. To check this out click on Start - Run. Type in "msconfig" and click OK. In the System Configuration Utility, click on the Startup tab, and untick any suspicious startup items and OK out of the System Configuration Utility then see if the computer runs without error. If it does, then retick the items and reboot one item at a time until the error comes back. You have then identified the problem.
