Hello there,

Occasionally, Windows XP SP3 will blue screen. There doesn't seem to be any cause of it, as it will happen while I play games or let it sit idle. Usually it only happens fairly rarely, but today it's happened 4 times now. I'm not too sure what could be wrong. When Windows started up again, it gave me a suggestion to use a memory scanning utility to see if there's anything wrong with my memory. Everything seems fine there, so that led me to a dead end. Attached are the 4 minidump files created when Windows crashed earlier today.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks. ^^

Download BlueScreenView (in Zip file)
No installation required.
Unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

It seemed kind of long, so I just attached it, because it ended up giving a report on all of them since 2008 or so. :thumbsup:

Okay, I tried upgrading my sound drivers.

So far so good.

As for games, I don't think it really matters, because it was several games and it occurred while not playing. But if you really wanted to know, they were just some MMORPGs such as MapleStory, Nostale, and Dragonica. Maybe there were some others, but I can't remember too well.
