Blue Screen Crashes, Win XP

  1. Hi, sorry to bother you guys, I'm sure someone answered this but I can't find that thread, I'm getting random Blue screen crashes, regardless of what my computer is doing (I.e. sitting idle, virus scanning, web browsing, gaming), I've searched the Event viewer and found a system error. I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to computers, and I don't know where to find the dump file. I've been getting this error for the past 7 months, unfortunately all my attempt to find out what is wrong is not working.
    I've tired re-checking my connections, chkdsk, defragged, memory test, cpu test, antivirus/rootkits/spyware, updated my drivers and I'm constantly checking my temperture of my cpu & gpu. My computer is still under warrently, so if someone can help me narrow it down to which hardware needs to go back, I'd greatly apprecate it.. P.S. sorry for the long message

    Thank you

    Hi,

    What memory test did you run? And for how long also.

    Have you run any hard drive scans at all?

    I ran the memory test from Everest Ultimate, for about 10- 15min and CHKDSK from the command prompt, as well as scan disk on the windows system tools

    You really need to test your memory for a much longer time. Use Memtest. See this link and follow directions: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic62524.html

    Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes (but I like to test longer). There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

    If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

    Also, with errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don’t need to run the test any further on that stick.

    Also, to add to what snowchick said, find the make of your harddrive, go to the manufacturer's website and download their free harddrive diagnostic utility. Do more than just the S.M.A.R.T. test.

    * Do Memtest first and get back to us with the results.

    Problem Solved

    My father and I solved my crash problems, we ended up updating my bios drivers, and formatting my computer deleting my C: partition to remove the old mDr file. then reinstalling and repartitioning everything. It's been a couple days with only 1 crash due to a faulty progam. My eventviewer shows no system errors re: that one crash. There were a few possible causes:

    1. My Bios and Windows were in conflict over who controlled the Plug and play
    2. I reused my old HD from my old computer when I built this, and didn't do a full format (erased the partition), therefore my old mDr file from the old comp was corrupted
    3. Possibly due to the orginal crashes re: plug and play conflict, over time some drivers got corrupted and caused the crashes

    regardless the problem is solved thanks Route44 and Snowchick7669 for assisting me with the problem

    good to see that you got your problem fixed. i am having a similar problem with the irql_not_less_than_equal thing on my new to me laptop. problem is i can't get in the bios or hard drive to fix those problems.
