    I keep getting the blue screen of death. the screen gives me a few clues, as to the video driver, then re-boots. I can't figure out what is going on.

    Do you have the most recent video driver?

    Might help if we knew what the message said.
    I know that on a lot of our Dell GX755's we get occasional BSOD's that point to an ATI driver but no amount of driver updating seems to get rid of the BSOD's.

    1) Press WIN+Pause/Break key to open up system properties (WIN = the key with the Windows logo). Or, you could right-click on "My Computer" and select "Properties"
    2) Click "Advanced System Settings" (Vista/Win7), or the "Advanced" tab (WinXP)
    3) Click the "Settings" button under "Startup & Recovery"
    4) Uncheck "Automatically restart"
    5) Click "OK"

    That will allow you to see what the BSOD actually says, and hopefully give a clue as to which driver is causing the issue. Feel free to let us know which driver is listed, and we may be able to help troubleshoot further.
