    The exact text and/or error codes would help.

    You can usually look them up on google to find a fix.

    You can always try using the Windows Recovery Console on your Windows install disc to replace NTFS.SYS; could be there's a bit missing somewhere in the file that's causing a crash whenever that part of the file gets used. In fact, that's almost certainly the problem; I doubt NTFS.SYS has any code errors in it, at this point.

    im going to try this, hopefully it works. The computer is only a couple months old. I did add a a DVD RW drive and a a hard drive, maybe one of these are causing the problem?

    btw i got the BSOD again, the code was 0x00000050 (0xc67e7d48,0x00000000,0x805babc5,0x00000000)

    i'm trying to look up the code, but i'm not having trouble finding anything on it

    Do you know how to do this, or do you need a walkthrough?

    EDIT:

    The first number is a line number in the file, and the 2nd-5th numbers are the contents of that line. Unfortunately, it doesn't mean much to us humans when it gets transcoded into something we can read.
