Hey, I am not too familiar with windows and it's error messages, but most likely it's a video card that hasn't been recognized. You might need to get a video driver or a new video card. I work with unix based os's and have had that happen when installing linux mandrake. It couldn't find the x server. That happened because I didn't choose the right driver during the install. My system kept rebooting. You might either want to get another video card, or reinstall windows, it might fix everything, but of course you will lose all your info on your hd.
