Well, I'm not sure what most of this means... I would greatly appreciate it if you can explain it a little clearer in 'laymans' terms. I also copied exactly what the screen says:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again. follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you may need. If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching and shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press f8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.
*** stop: 0x000000ed (0x84f4f030,0xc0000032,0x00000000,0x00000000)

Well, everyone....I fixed the problem. Somehow a registry became corrupted, and i needed to run my windows cd and repair. The reason windows was not booting up so I could run the repair was because it was a usb cd player. It was a fair amount of work to connect another cd drive, due to my installation, but I got it. Everything seems fine now, except of course for that damn 'your system has recovered from a serious error' messege that appears every time I start the computer......any other suggestions for that one? This messege appears even if I shut down the computer correctly through windows.
Guess what...I found this excellent tool called Google, and after investing approx. 14 seconds, I found the solution to my serious error messege. I suggest that everyone tries this site www.google.com -It is extremely helpful!
