blue error screen !!

  amoeba 16:12 02 Oct 06


Last night I switched on my pc and I noticed a blue screen filled with words from top to bottom. I couldn't remember everything on the screen but it mentioned something about "video driver failed to initiate" then it tried to restart itself and after trying to restart 2 to 3 times it completely shuts down.
I gave it 10 minutes and switched the pc on again and everything is fine but I'm afraid of shutting down my pc again so its been on since 23.50 last night.
I had a new dvd writer and a usb2 pci card put in about 6 weeks ago. This is the first I've ever come across this blue screen so can anybody help.
I don't have the window disc and I'm not a techy.

Appreciate the help !!

Check the Device Manger for any exclamation marks. To do this go to Start/My Computer and right click My Computer then select Manage then Device Manager.

If there are any exclamation marks, post back, and somebody will help you further.

thank you for your quick response.
I checked every line and clicked on every +, no exclamation marks.
