    I'm trying to find out if one of my drivers is causing a problem on my Windows XP computer. I looked for a "bootlog.txt" file but couldn't find it. As you can tell, my knowledge of troubleshooting is a little rusty. :) There's gotta be a debugging log somewhere. Can anyone help?

    I thought you needed to turn it on when you boot with f8

    Take a look in your event log to see if there are any errors. It’s located in the control panel under administrative tools.
