    My fileserver is :(

    The salient feature of that dump is the line "Bugcheck 109". Error code 0x109 is CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION; not too helpful on its own. Try testing your memory with memtest86+ and updating all drivers.

    Need some computers....

    Check with any local colleges or universities--many of them operate their own internal recycling program. You might be able to snag an old system that way.

    Thought I would post an update since I've changed a few things. New speakers (Madisound Cygnet Mk. II kit), got a sub (AV123 X-sub, in front left corner of room), and trimmed down my equipment rack by getting rid of a few items.
