    Inside the 5 MiniDumps:
    Please try this:

    Manual steps to run Chkdsk from My Computer or Windows Explorer
    • Open My Computer, and then right-click the hard disk that you want to check.
    • Click Properties, and then click Tools.
    • Under Error-checking, click Check Now. A dialog box that shows the Check disk options is displayed
    Use one of the following procedures:
    • • To run Chkdsk in read-only mode, click Start.
    • • To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, select the Automatically fix file system errors check box, and then click Start. (tick)
    • • To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box.

    Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message:
    Click Yes to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

    Wait until Chkdsk finishes Checking / Repairing any faults
    Windows will then either restart your computer or continue loading Normally.

    I think it's a Memory Corruption issue !
    Even though it may have passed, consider replacing the Ram (note: this is a test!)

    I have two new sticks in. One 512 and one 256. ......im lost like a baby.. Does memory corruption include the Hard drive?

    kimsland Ex-TechSpotter Posts: 18,353

    Yes

    Ram (No.1 and likely cause for you)
    HardDrive
    PageFile
    Video Card Ram (hardware card that is)
    CMOS settings Video memory allocation (use 64Meg, Windows will re-adjust correctly)

    edit:

    Forgot Virtual Drive (in actual fact Ram)

    So you want me to go into my cmos settings and use 64meg..
  9. kimsland

    kimsland Ex-TechSpotter Posts: 18,353

    Well I did want you to change the Ram to brand new 512 and 512

    But yes, for the CMOS

    Also you can delete all the present dmp files in c:\windows\minidump (to avoid confusion)

    When I go into my CMOS options. The only place I notice anything about Video and 64meg is in

    Advanced Chipset -> OnChip AGP Control -> VGA Share Memory Size

    Its that what you speak of?

    The AGP Aperture Size is already 64mb

    Ok it's not that :(

    I haven't checked the dump file, cause I already know what it'll say

    Best option is to replace the ram for new 512Meg X 2 (or 1Gig X 2)

    Actually howmany Ram slots are on the board (4 ?)

    If 4 slots, put the 512 in the first Ram slot, and the other card in the 3rd ram slot

    Only 2 slots
