Thanks for the replies! I think I may have it narrowed down to the Linksys wireless USB adapter. My mobo can only accommodate a PCI-E card and I couldn't find one, so I just picked up this USB one, and I had a helluva time getting the drivers
installed. Took some manipulation but finally got it going, and had been BSOD'ing ever since. Yesterday I removed the USB adapter and hard-wired it to the router, and all my problems went away (so far). This isn't ideal, because I've now got an ugly cable running across my livingroom, but until I can find a PCI-E card, it's workable.

Right click on the minidump folder, select properties, select the security tab, click edit and then add, enter your username and click ok. Select your username and then set the required permissions and then click ok twice. You should now be able to access the minidump folder to upload the files.
I don't know where I'm going wrong with this part. I'm an administrator, and my username has 'full control' in the security section, but it's still locked, and trying to open a dump file tells me Access Denied. Very strange. I'd still like to figure it out in case my problem isn't solved and I need to refer to it.

LOL, sorry.. no. IE tells me the page can't be displayed, or I typed the URL in wrong or something (which I didn't). In my world, that equates to 'you suck'

I've only had the PC about a week so I haven't had time to contaminate it too much, but so far I've got;
Apple crap for my iPhone
MS Office XP
Firefox / Thunderbird
And some proprietary interface for my on-board nVidia card

I can do that, but I can't unlock it. I actually tried copying the whole folder to my desktop, and then I was able to open one of the dump files, but it looked all encrypted. I'm not sure if that's what you need....
While you're waiting, I'd suggest uninstalling your video driver
. Then download the latest version available from the manufacturer of your video chipset (ATI, nVidia, Intel, etc) and install that.
Funny you mention that. When I first got 7 installed, the video wan't right, and I couldn't get the right resolution. I don't think the drivers were even installed. I went to nVidia and my vid card wasn't listed (I think it's one made exclusively for HP as it's on-board). I had the option to let it detect the best drivers for me, and it found one for me one to download. I did that, and my display became perfect. I didn't give it anymore thought. If it turns out the wireless adapter wasn't the culprit, I'll troubleshoot the vid driver for sure.
I did change the behavior of my bluescreen options to not re-boot right away, so if it does happen again I can at least catch what's on the screen before it reboots.
Thanks a bunch for all your help! Not sure if I'm 'fixed' for good yet or not, but will let you know!
