    My roommate's girlfriend's computer is BSODing on boot, even in safe mode.

    Only changes that were made were configuring the LAN to connect using DHCP instead of a manually configured IP address. I'm guessing since we're on a university network that a worm/virus could be the issue now that she was able to connect to the internet.

    I'm planning on burning a recovery CD and scanning with that, but is there anything else that I should do or look out for with these symptoms?

    Never mind, problem solved itself, the system was probably overheating.
