kzvip, does the problem give you the error code 0xC0000005~ ?
windbg -y srv*c:\windows\symbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols -i c:\windows\i386 -z c:\windows\minidump\<minidump file name>
It will (try to) record what was going on when your computer crashed and save it to a text file. By studying the file you'll at least get a list of likely suspects as to what caused the crash.
The file created should appear in the root of the drive where Windows is installed. As for being "easy to read and understand", it may be, but it might just look like gibberish unless you know what you're looking for. You can attach a copy of the dump file here and we'll have a look.
You could also try right-clicking My Computer, then go to Properties>>Advanced>>Startup and Recovery Settings, then uncheck Automatically Restart.
It will produce a BSOD with an error code. Let us know what it is and we'll try and help.
I have this problem and have followed your advice. I have some dump files from when I get the STOP: 0x0000008E error. However they are .dmp files and are complete gibberish in notepad & wordpad. I'd really like to post my dump file to see if you guys see anything in there but I don't know how at this point. Please help. These errors are killing me & its a new computer!
