  1. Please help me. I've tested the RAM as suggested in the FAQ and nothing is revealed.

    My computer reboots approx 1 time per day

    This is an ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe with Athlon XP 2400. 1M of RAM. 120G HDD.

    The computer ran very well for about a year or two before the rebooting happened. New devices that have been installed is a USB bluetooth device and a Linksys CIT2000 (skype phone).

    thank very much!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your minidumps are quite old, the latest being from 4/9/05.

    Have you got any more recent minidumps?

    Interestingly 2 of your old minidumps crash with a hardware error.

    This could be any type of hardware, and can be difficult to diagnose.

    What is the computer doing when it crashes?

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Blue Screen / Minidumps

    Howard, thanks for replying. Literally every time except once, the computer has shut down and rebooted while I was not in front of it.

    I've checked the Device Manager and I don't see any "cautions" and the only devices with red "x" in them are 3Com fast ethernet and MAC bridge miniport, which I believe are 'x'd because I killed that feature purposely.

    Here are more recent minidumps.

    One of your minidumps crashes with a hardware error.

    Another one crashes with memory corruption. Faulty ram.

    Is your 1gig of ram in a single stick, or 2 512meg sticks?

    If it`s in 2 sticks try removing one stick and testing your system, if your system then becomes stable, the ram you took out is bad. If this doesn`t work try running with the other stick of ram. Please note. Some faulty ram can pass Memtest.

    Regards Howard :)
