Default Wga

I get a blue screen every once in awhile and I can restart with no problems so it's not life or death, but the error sited is machine_check_validation. Searching on the topic I always get something about WGA, the check emosoft uses to see if you bought your windows. Now I should have a legit copy, but I'll admit I did not buy this copy of windows. It was a friend's, long story but she doesn't need it anymore so I did her a favor and she let me keep this.

Any Knowledge on the topic???

You have to call Microsoft. Then your friend will have to format the OS off her hard drive.

Ok, I actually bothered with sending an error report and it gave me this:http://oca.microsoft.com/en/response...c1e590&SID=134

if thats right I'll start with it another day. I'm going to overlook my PSU for now, because I would have other problems it that was it. My gut says my motherboard.
