    Oh this is a standard crash report as far as Windows goes. First  I would try updating your video driver. This sometimes fixes it. According to microsoft that error number means this:

    If this issue occurs after the first restart during Windows Setup, or after Setup is finished, the computer may not have sufficient hard disk space to run Windows.
    "      If this issue occurs after the first restart during Windows Setup, or after Setup is complete, the computer BIOS may be incompatible with Windows.
    "      Incompatible video adapter drivers.
    "      Damaged RAM.
    "      A damaged device driver or system service.
    "      If the issue is associated with the Win32k.sys file, it may be caused by a third-party remote control program.

    It may be your video driver just needs updating.
