disconnect all xtra hardware (floppy, cdrom, soundcard, scanners, printers, etc). I dont think thats the issue, since it happens going into safe mode, but its a start.

That's incorrect ...G..whatever your name is... (Interesting name for a handle by the way... really thought hard about that one eh? LOL).

BSODs can be cause by either software/hardware issues.
