Default blue screen of death, in XP???

hey. i wake up each morning to find the blue screen of death on my computer. this is what it said this morning:

the windows logon process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x00000103 (0x00000000 0x00000000)

Possibly overheating? Your BIOS seeing that it's overheating. Was it shut down when you got up? More details would allow me to help you further.

Also, you really should try google, it's something very easy, yet no one does it on these forums.

[Edit]After googling, I got this:

Does that help?[/Edit]

yeah. i left my computer on all night and when i went to use it, the screen was on my monitor, so it shut down over night. i recently upgraded the memory to 768mb, though things have been fine until the past week.

Hello,

Try removing the newly added RAM, and trial run your computer.

Blue screens of death are commonly caused by cheap, unstable ram.
It's another way of your memory taking a dump on you.. literally.
