We need a bit more info......

what OS?
what CD?
what the error message says?

and anything else you might think will be helpful.

AAAAHHHH, the good old BSOD. :x

Havn't had one since I left 98 behind and went to 2K. :P

try doing a search in the micrsoft knowledge base for any similar problems they have encountered in their support lines.

My guess would be that is your cd drive. Swap it out with another one and see if the same thing happens.
If not, then take back the drive and get it replaced.
If it does happen again, I'd say it's got something to do with your OS.

sounds like it maybe the problem.

can you try it in another system to see if it works?
if it doesn't work there, then that is definitely the reason for you BSOD.
