You're missing a lot of needed information here. What is the brand/type of PC, or processor and amount of RAM? What operating system are you using? Post more information on the BSOD. What is the Stop code in the top left of the screen? Is there a Phrase_separated_by_underscores? In the first few lines does it mention a file name that ends with .exe, .drv or .sys?

For a few years now, I've been getting the BSOD that says something about MinSP's, spare stacks and the like. A few months ago, someone told me to add the line "MinSPs=4" to the [386Enh] section of the System.ini file and if that didn't do the trick keep adding to the number in increments of 4. At first, I did just that and everytime I got the BSOD again as soon as I was done so I went up in multiples of 4 instead. 18, 32, 64, 72 and just tonight I changed it again. At the moment the line now reads "MinSPs=144". I'm still getting the same message in BSOD's (at least I was with it up to 72, but we'll see how long 144 lasts). What do I have to do to stop this already? After I changed it to 144 and restarted the puter, a row of short green vertical lines appeared across the top of the screen and it froze on me before I even got the chance to do ANYTHING I turned it on to do. I had to manually shut it off again and restart it. I'm also getting Kernel32.dll errors in AOLDial as well as tons of other places and usually right after I "told" the computer to shut off. Can someone give me clue as to what's going on with this beast? One person tells me it's to do with the BIOS another tells me it's because I don't have enough memory and then tells me that increasing it won't help at all.
