Ahh, I'm so annoyed with these constant BSOD, They are the most annoying things you could have, I recently bought a new GFX Card (7600) and 2GB of Ram hoping this would fix the problem(bought it about 4 months ago) It obviously didn't and they became worse, I can't even play a game knowing I'm going to get a BSOD sometime in the next 20 minutes. I play COD4 and i get the IRQL not less or equal BSOD, Sometimes I'm just surfing the web and i get special_pool_detected_memory_corruption or Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area

I've tried the following things :
1) Reinstall NVIDIA Drivers
2) Take out GFX Card, RAM and Sound Card and gave them a clean and placed them back
3) Tried Resetting BIOS Settings

None of these worked and I'm still getting BSOD

If anybody could please give me a helping hand i would be so grateful

STOP 0xC1 (special_pool_detected_memory_corruption): http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0xc1
STOP 0x50 (Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area): http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0x50
STOP 0x0a (IRQL not less or equal): http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0x0a

As you've already figured, these are probably driver errors. Since you've already replaced the graphics drivers (that's the most likely cause) then it becomes a hunt for the driver that's causing it.

The easiest way to figure this out is by searching your hard drive for files ending in .dmp (usually in C:\Windows\Minidump). If you're able to locate them, then try this link to perform an analysis of them: http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35246
Then post the results here for us to have a look at.

The other way to do this is to remove and reinstall all of your hardware drivers, starting at the lowest level (mobo/chipset) and working your way up until they're all reinstalled - a genuine PITA if you ask me!

Well, you've got a pile of errors - your video (nvidia), your audio (xfire), a couple of mobo drivers (hidusb.sys and usbport.sys), along with some Windows stuff thrown in just to confuse things.

As most of the error point to drivers being the cause - I'd start with reinstalling your motherboard and chipset drivers (usually available from the system manufacturer - or from the mobo manufacturer if it's a custom build).

As for the video drivers - in the past you needed a special tool to get rid of them. Now, just go to Control Panel...Add/Remove Programs (Programs and Features in Vista) and uninstall them there (don't forget to reboot). Download the latest, WHQL certified drivers from nVidia and then install them.

I'd do the same thing for your audio drivers - but I suspect that the mobo/chipset drivers should fix the problem.

There's also a chance that there's a corruption ion COD4 (iw3sp.exe) - so, if all the above doesn't work, try uninstalling that (to include losing your saved games) and reinstalling another copy (in case your currect copy is corrupted).

Thought this was going to be bad, Well my PC was made by Dell and i have a resource CD so i'm hoping there on that, otherwise It's gonna be a long search.

EDIT : Ok it has the chipset drivers which i installed a few days ago, Maybe i'll get updated ones from the website

Ok, I bought Driver Detective because I'm too lazy to go hunting for drivers, quite a lot of my drivers were out of date or corrupt, I've installed most of them but I seem to be getting some Screen Lag eg my mouse is jolting and i can't play games because of the lag. I hope it's not a virus, a quick check on HJT and it looks "ok" I'm not too sure, I will do a Defrag and a Virus Scan and see what happens and post back.

In my opinion you are attacking the problem from the wrong direction, start at the ground and work your way up. You added ram, well that's a can of worms in itself. Make sure your bios is updated and the ram is running properly, then
assuming your OS was not damaged from adding the ram, you make sure your mobo chipset drivers are in order. If they are fine then worry about video drivers.
Each of these steps lays a foundation for a stable fast computer.

Many a time I have seen people have to start over from scratch to get a load right.

I have got some serious problems with my PC, CPU is constantly 100% but In Hijackthis i can't see anything suspicious, I checked this guide
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/87058/slow-computerbrowser-check-here-first;-it-may-not-be-malware/
and have done everything there but I'm still getting CPU 100%, When i go into processes all the processes except for System Idle Process is under 5 or on 0

I hope i can fix this or I'm going to have to reformat

Don't use Driver Detective anymore. You can get all the drivers that you need from the Dell Support website (located here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/...;l=en&s=gen ) by entering your Service Tag number.

You can get even more updated drivers by going to the website of the manufacturer of the device (in most cases).

Have you updated your chipset, video, and audio drivers as I suggested? Have you uninstalled COD4 as I suggested?

What problems are you having now? With the installation of drivers, the BSOD's could change (as could other things).

Have you checked the Memory in Task Manager? Also, try going to the View menu (when on the Processes tab) and "Select Columns". Then put a check mark in the PID and in the IO Reads boxes. The PID will help if the issue is in one of the multiple instances of svchost.exe - while the IO Reads will see if something is excessively accessing your hard drive.

your motherboard chipset drivers and audio/lan etc should be fine to just upgrade but the video drivers should be uninstalled seperately after rebooting

first use add/remove or device manager

then after rebooting and telling windows no, load the new drivers

sometimes you have to even run a driver cleaner to get a good load


we really need to see an everest overclock report showing the specs on your memory, unless you sort that out, the drivers may not help

I've installed the Chipset Drivers, Straight after that i got the Memory_Corruption stop error and WinDbg points to win32k.sys which is my graphics drivers, I searched google for the best stable nvidia drivers and installing them as we speak. Will let you know if i get anymore BSOD after the installation, I also removed my old 512mbx2 RAM because I think they are corrupt, I left my new inside.

the old ram could be fine, but your dell bios might not be able to properly run the new and old ram at the same time if they are too different
