These types of errors are usually driver related or a hardware issue such as a bad RAM module. Read through the following articles. The last one is for using driver verification tool included in XP.

Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

Hi, i had the same problem i though it was my ram still think it was, so i ran my Mem DIagnostics cd, downoadble as a ISO to put onto a cd/dvd to boot from, more on this later..

I formatted my pc after other problems i was getting, not so much BSOD but slow, spammed and completely utterly knackerd.

I think that your problem could
a) Faulty ram module (remove them then place 1 in slot 1, then try other in slot 1, check motherboard manuals for proper ram placement, sometimes it might be 1, 3, 2, 4. read your manual to find out!)

:thumbsup: Bad Driver, when does it happen? shut down? could be a graphics problem, opening a webcam / scanner / printer could be your drivers for them.. or even motherboard drivers, graphics card drivers maybe the wrong one but still works with higher risk of BSOD, try it all.

c) when does it happen? safe mode? during games? during browsing? could it be a recently installed Modem / Router?

Check, www.computerhope.com for more info.

The name of the memtest was Memtest64 (i think!) its a site where you download, place onto a disk, then boot from that, it is a scary screen since it is blue but let it do its magic and try moving ram around, or just try one ram stick at a time in each of the ports, can take a while!

Good luck Janolapin,

~ Chris

hi again

first of all, thanks for all your answers

- douglas, i think that the first and last link you provide can help me and i will try to work on that

- eastonch, yes maybe it's ram, i don't know yet. to answer your questions, crashes happen without notice and can go 5 minutes or some hours later i've started my computer and happen as well when i'm surfing on net as i'm playing online games (especially yahoo) : so i don't have a reliable clue for the moment and as well, i don't change my modem since a long time ago

and i don't remind i have a motherboard manuel for RAM (maybe i misunderstand what i mean and by the way, i'm not a very good informatician! lol) and yes, my WINDOWS is genuine!

- usasma, thanks for your link : i will try it, hoping that my computer doesn't crash during using it!

so, thanks again and i hope don't to see you again! lol! (i mean i hope my problem will be soon fixed :thumbsup: )

You may try doing a system restore.

Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System restore.

When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.

Just give it a try and restore your system to a "Working" date (if you remember one)

Good luck.
