    check to make sure you have adequate disk space. if a driver is identified in the stop message diable the driver or cheack with the manufacturer for driver updates.try changing video adapters.

    check with your hardware vendor for any bios updates disable bios memory options such as caching or shadowing if you need to use safe mode to remove or disable compnents restart your pc. press f8 to select advance startup options and then select safe mode.

    IDE 1 (motherboard) - HDD (Slave) - HDD (Master)
    IDE 2 (motherboard) - DVD/CD (Slave) - DVD/CD (Master)

    The Blue end of the IDE ribbons connects to the motherboard. The middle connection is for the slave drive and the other end is for the master drive.
    The drives have jumpers to set them as MASTER. SLAVE or CABLE SELECT
