everytime im in the middle of working on something abig blue screen comes up and asks me to speak to my system administrator and possible solution would be to disable my bios memory options which i dont know how to do. when i restart my computer it tells me that it has recovered from a serious error.also when i start up my pc the monitor does not start with it can anyone explain why?

Type "Eventvwr" into run and double click the system file. Post the red "X" reports.

Assuming you are using 2K or XP.

Hi Leighton Trading,
Re the monitor, if it is powered from the PC it ought to start in unison. If not you may have to switch it on separately each time the PC starts, in that a relay in the monitor opens on shut-down and has to be manually re-closed by pressing the monitor's on switch when the PC re-starts.

Re the blue screen and message. Go into the bios on start-up by pressing F1 or 'delete', and navigate through the resulting menu (it's self-explanatory) until you reach the section on setting defaults. Click on them. Press Y and enter. Press F10 to save to cmos and exit. Press Y and enter. It might clear the problem. If it doesn't take a lump hammer to it. Good luck.

ive solved my problem and it was the service pack 2 for xp and ruined my whole c drive which had to be replaced through restarts after crashes! i hope this helps someone!
