  1. I just recently formatted my harddrive and installed windows xp pro on it
    (it is a valid copy) and I've been updating and trying to get my computer back to its former state

    but I've been having a lot of problems with the bsod

    the most common 2 are

    0x000000F4 (0x00000003,0x865E5DA0,0x865E5F14,0x805F9F88)


    0x0000007A (0xC03DDED8,0xC000000E,0xF77B6D9C,0x24D02860)
    [this was also on this error page but im not sure if its of any use]
    address - F77B6D9C
    base - F77B0000
    datestamp - 3B7D8419

    Ive looked up the two errors and both of them say its either a virus or a ram problem
    ive checked for viruses with avg and avast and found nothing..
    i ran drwatson, hijackthis,chkdisk.. nothing..
    and i ran across a topic on here that said to download Memtest86+
    and allow it to run for 7 passes at least

    I downloaded that and its running right now its still on its first pass though

    I was just wondering if it does pull up errors how will I know what ram is bad
    and if not are there any other steps I can take to get my system operational??

    Thanks for your help in advance,

    to find out wich ram is bad you need to test each one at a time also if you can get in to windows up load a minidump forgot to put that on last post

    Some malware camouflage themselves as ftdisk.sys, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the ftdisk.sys process on your pc whether it is pest.
