Blue Screen of Death Daily, Please Help

  1. Okay, my computer is totally messed up. It has been kinda messed up for a while, but lately it has been getting worse. I have been getting Blue screens of death occasionally for the past few months, on about a weekly basis, didn't really bother me much. But now I'm getting like 3 a day and it is really bugging me. So I reformatted my hard drive and installed the drivers, but I think I got the wrong ones installed :O. I'm kinda computer illiterate, so if somebody could help walking me through the information you need to help diagnosis whats wrong that would be great. The BSOD messages i'm getting are Stop 0x000000008E and 0x000000050. They usually say Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area or something like that. I also got one involving a file called ipnat.sys today. They happen at random times, but I'm also getting other random problems too, like the computer slowing down when I start up I-tunes and alot of video games are crashing. I know the motherboard drivers are causing some of the problems. I have the system specs below. I googled that motherboard + drivers, and a webpage with that model came up and so I installed those drivers. "American Megatrends." I started getting weird messages then, so I tried to install the one that came with the disk for my mother board (I lost that one earlier but then found it after I had issues with this driver), but it gives me an error when I install them. I also installed SATA drivers and K8 CPU drivers. God I dont know what any of this means and this is a computer nightmare. PLEASE SOMEBODY HELP ME.

    Faulty M/B

    Your windows is crashed because of hardware problem. The first minidump has the bucket id CPU_CALL_ERROR and it is usally related to faulty motherboard. Check your motherboard and look for any bulgy capacitor. The 2nd minidump has over 3000 memory corruption and this is symptom of bad paging spacing. Run chkdsk /r and re-allocate the paging space.

    You had better to run memtest to stress test the ram as well.

    Crap. Ok, thanks. So is my motherboard a piece of crap? Should I get a new one? I did Memtest like 4 times and nothing game up. Also, how do I reset my page file or whatever?

    Hey, no worries mate, I was only having a laugh.

    In order to put someones name in quotes, you simple do the following. {Quote=Morgus]Message text{\quote} Obviously, you`d use square brackets instead of the curly ones I`ve used as an example.

    Regards Howard :)
