Sounds like you have a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death). This is only in Windows machines. If you want to post what it says I'll try to help you. However, in return, you have to heed Acid's advice. Otherwise someone else will NOT be nice enough to help you. Another note, this is a LINUX forum. Not Windows. So, this could possibly be deleted by another moderator.
PS: That gobbledegook is not gobbledegook. It's useful troubleshooting information.
