This could be due to a number of reasons. Please see the following link (assuming system is XP):

The BSOD error he has is pretty generic but I've solved it before many times with my answer.  There really weren't enough detail to form an exact conclusion.  He never made another comment so I guess it would be the administrator/moderator's recommendation for an answer.
