youll need a console report... look at the stickied threads - youll find one that describes how to obtain one...
did you clear your BC folder before you reinstalled
yes thats the first thing i did before i reinstalled

If you have Vista you actually didn't. In the BC directory look for "compatability files" at the top. That takes you to the hidden virtualstore folder. Delete the BC folder there and go back into the normal BC directory and delete that folder. To avoid this again install ALL games to the games folder.
what is vista and where can i find it, because this BSOD or black screen of death is really starting to get on my nerves.
Vista is the latest version of the windows operating system. So all you have right now is the stock game?
yeah i have the stock game but iv added ships and mods to it like the KM1.0 full mod, and GUI MOD.
I didn't make it!
What OS do you have? XP? Have you tried running the game in compatibility mode for Windows 98 / Windows ME? I had some problems with BC and that solved them.
i have windows XP os system. i dont have ME or 98. i will post my console report here so you can see it and may tell me what the problem.
