Every BSOD is unique to its own rules, problems, and cuases. Please give more details. Often, BSOD's are caused my hardware and or system file failures.

Before taking active action, make sure to see if the BSOD on the workstation repeats. Reboot and then see. Most of the time it will not repeat. If this is the case, boost up the virtual memory of the workstation to about 254mb. This is a common problem when running NT 4.0 and once the virtual memory is kicked up, that BSOD should never happen again. If the workstation does repeat the BSOD check out Microsoft Knowledge base. Usually running the ERD may help. Be careful, if you try to correct a non-problem, you might totally crash the system.
