The Blue Screen of Death!

So last night I was plugging away and after nearly about 5 – 6 years with my old computer… I finally came across the Blue Screen of Death!

Blue Screen of Death (Not the message I had)

The Blue Screen (also known as BSoD or bluescreen), known officially as a Stop Error [1] or a bug check, is the error screen displayed by the Microsoft Windows family of operating systems upon encountering a critical error, of a non-recoverable nature, that causes the system to “crash.” The term is named after the color of the screen generated by the error. In UNIX-based operating systems, a similar term is kernel panic.

Stop errors are usually hardware or driver related, causing the computer to stop responding in order to prevent damage to the hardware, whereupon, in the latest versions of Windows, the screen presents information for diagnostic purposes that was collected as the operating system performed a bug check.

So instead of trying to locate all my drivers and basically rebuild my entire computer over again… I figured it was time to get a new one.  So this is my new toy.  It’s basic… does what  I need to do and I kept the price under $700.00.

Now I have to figure out how to use it as well as regain many of the old programs that I was using on my old beast.  This may take me a few days to get caught up on things.
