Well, That’s Progress

My computer is begging to be replaced.  It knows its replacement is 98% ready to rock, across the house in the garage.  Lately, it has been throwing out random bluescreens of death, with a code that translates to English as “something told the CPU to shut off the computer” with no hints at all.

Then today I installed some Windows Updates and I noticed it called out a driver was ready to update.  The voices started saying something but I ignored them and told it to install anyhow.  It said it needed to reboot, and then at boot time it gave a bluescreen immediately, before getting into Windows.

Every.Single.Time.  The stop code calls out a funky driver.  I think I remember why I had left off installing that particular driver.

The computer did, happily, still boot into Safe Mode.  Well, thanks to Jesus and Microsoft for the System Restore function, and we’re back to last weekend on the system files, and it boots into normal Windows again.  Wheeeeeee!
