We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

Then after a reboot I got a blue screen. I rebooted and everything appeared ok. I only had SP1 and IE9 to install. They are big so I started with SP1. I now have a blue screen which will not resolve itself with a restart.
I figure I need some help before I restart in Safe Mode. I had a brief look in the forum, but quickly realised that I was way out of my depth. I see log files being posted but I am not sure where to find them.
Thanks in advance.

On blue screen now appears:
*** STOP: 0x0000003B (0x00000000C0000005,0xFFFFF8800FBD17B3,0xFFFFF88007DD4E40,0X0000000000000000)

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.
