I know that my BSOD's are related to memory leaks somehow, but I just can't put my finger on it. For some odd reason, the BSOD's only pop-up if 'The SIMS 2' doesn't shut down properly. There is occasionally a file in the 'processes' tab that is 100% needed for S2 to run, but it almost never has been shutting down recently. I know that S2 is not related to anything within the Windows family, but here is why I posted here:

KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR

STOP: 0x0000007A (0xC03DDB84, 0xC000000, 0xF76E13C5, 0x2E3B9860)

Ntfs.sys - Address F76E13C5 base at F767E000, Datestamp 41107eea

I am really getting frustrated by some programs not shutting down by themselves and causing BSOD's. If I can atleast find out what caused this recent one, then I can maybe prevent it from happeneing by instructing my sisters and my mom to shut down that last process.

Thanx again guys,

Have you installed SP2 yet?

Although it primarilly addressed security exploits it also contained fixes for many compatability issues and may address the problem you are experiencing.

Yes, I do have SP2. What I can't seem to realize is that I updated my motherboard BIOS via Dell. Do I need to update any controllers, drivers, or firmware? Because I know for a fact that everything is compatible (How does the computer work then?). It'll be a pain to update anything for the memory, because they aren't Corsair or anything like that. My memory is a generic brand.

Generic memory doesn't necessarily mean its bad.

First thing to do is look in the device manager and see if there are any yellow or red flags on any device in there. If so, you may have hardware or driver problems and it would be good to update whichever drivers show problems if any.

Then run one of the memory testers:
like this:
Windows Memory Diagnostic

I basically have to boot from my CD image that I just downloaded? Well, that's gonna have to wait until after school, because I'm actually running out of time to catch the bus. :thumbsup:
