Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

My HP Pavillion desktop had given me a "serious error" screen and then a "blue screen" and stopped working. It would not reboot. I had to use my recovery disc to get it to boot up. It worked for a while and then repeated the same problem. I repeated the recovery disc and updated windows and microsoft while it was working. Everything seemed to be fine.

\015\012make a note of the stop error code you get on the screen.. it's way to fast for you to see it.. you may be able to see what the stop error code is by going into the event viewer (as long as you have checked to have this events reported to event viewer in system properties> advance tab and start up and recovery area.).. look inthe event viewer (start>right click my computer>manage>event viewer) and look for system events.. you should see a white x inside a a red circle.. look for those error events and look for the error code.. it should give you something like 0x????????? post that error here.. or google it, it may give you an idea of what may be wrong. at this stage it could be software related or hardware related?

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background.
