    LEGO Star Wars caused BSOD after it crashed

    I decided to install LEGO Star Wars on my vista and try to fix the problem with it crashing when I try to start it up. But this time, I got something so unexpected, and something utterly terrifying (Yes, I value my computer so much).

    I tried to change the screen resolution on the game to the highest possible (1660xsomething) and the game minimized and the "LEGO Star Wars has stopped working" message came up. Since I couldn't see my cursor, I hit the spacebar to click "Close Program".

    After that, the BSOD flashed on and told me I got a "bad header" or something, I can't excactly remember. It was there for like 2 seconds and then the computer restarted itself. It didn't boot, so I flicked off the power switch and turned it back on and now everything is back to normal.

    I tried running the program again and this time it just crashed when the menu appeared. Nothing happened after that. This has always happened whenever I tried to start the game.

    I also tried going through the Program Compatibility Wizard and ran it in XP Service Pack 2, but for some reason the computer restarted itself again.

    EDIT: BSOD report and health check are attatched.

    Is Vista . . .
    - x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? 32-bit
    - the original installed OS on the system? Yes.
    - an OEM or full retail version? OEM.
    - What is the age of system (hardware)? About 5 years.
    - What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) About 5 years too, and no.

    Right, I looked in C/Windows and found the Minidump folder but it's empty?
