I've been getting video card crashes at least once a day. These pass 2 days I've gotten no crash but then again I didn't go onto games like I usually do. I want to know, how to find out if the problem is fixed.

What is the make and model of the graphics card, and what is the make and model of the PSU.

If the PSU isn't powerful enough to support the graphics card it can cause this type of problem.

I never had this problem first time around.

this is the link to the errors I got
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/156915/random-resets-and-crashes/

video card: NVIDIA Geforce MX 440 with AGP8X
I think its 300W, I'm not sure. I think is FPS group. . .I can't see the whole name of it.

But as I said I only had this problem twice. First time I fixed and I have no clue how I did it.

I ran a windows test and it seems that LRand fails the most coming in second is Stride6. The only thing is, its random. Sometimes it passes, sometimes it fails. The first time I ran this scan a long time ago, the same thing happened. The same 2 2 failed.

Look in the Event Viewer and see what errors are showing up at the time that this is happening. Each error will have its own date and time shown.

Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.

On the right side of the page you will see the options Applications, Security, and Systems, double click on Systems. There are eight columns on this page, the three that you will want are Type, Date, Time, and Event.

The errors will appear in the Type column, they are red dots with a white X inside of them.

Warnings will appear as a yellow trinangle with an exclamation mark inside.

When you see an error, double click on it and see what the description is.

Please post the error code/s found in the Event column and the descriptions back in this topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Try running chkdsk.


Go to Start and click on My Computer.

Right click on the drive in which you want chkdsk to run. The C: drive is usually contains your operating system.

Click on Properties and click the Tools tab. In the Error-checking box, click the Check Now button.

Set up the Check Disk options by checking one or both check boxes displayed.

To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, select the Automatically fix file system errors, and then click Start.

To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors, and then click Start.

Check both boxes.

This could take as long as an hour to run depending you your computer, please allow it to run to completion.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Another Bluee screen crash but this time it didn't give me a file.

Stop: 0x00000085 (0xc0000005, 0xE7401FC0, 0XB9034A58, 0X00000000)

No file was given. I googled the first 2 sectors and I found mainly a RAM issue. I want to confirm this.

I was on warcraft 3 when this happened. This usually happens when I play Warcraft 3. Only once during Maplestory and once during starcraft. Usually it gives me a file. Last thing I did to my system was, uninstalled my video card and reinstalled it with the newest driver update.

You have a confirmed memory problem on Test #8, per the data you posted.

What more confirmation do you want?

The memory test should also have indicated what module the error occurred occurred in, assuming that you ran two modules together.

You may want to verify that the timings for the two modules are the same...and you may want to take a look in your BIOS and reduce your memory speed...to bring it inline with what your motherboard supports (if there is a difference).

How do I do that? Go to the BIO menu and then go to. . .

Let's go back to the Memtest results first.

How many modules did you run for the errors that you posted?

Did you switch placement of the modules...after you received the errors...and run another series of tests?

I think they were both sticks 256MB each I believe. Total is 512 MB. I tested them individually and both pass in slot one. In slot two, I tested one and both pass. when I tested both at the same time in slots one and two I got errors. I switch them around, now its slots one and three and got no errors, this I tested 2 times. I am going to test it again just to be sure.

I guess that I don't understand...if you see errors on the 8th pass...why would you stop testing on the 3d pass of a different combination.

3 passes of the test probably amounts to less that 5% of the time a full run takes. I think I'd rather run considerably longer and be more sure of the quality/status of the RAM.

But that's a personal idiosyncrasy, forget about it.

It was 3 test each when I tested them individually. I tested one of the sticks 3 times as well in slot 2. When i tried both slot one and two, I got errors in the first test. I just now tested slot one and three and it pass with no errors. I am completely confused about this computer.

Could it be that the Ram is too close together and gets over heated? The Ram I have is kinda Fat and barly touches each other.
