Hello all, I have recently come across this BSOD and it is quite a pain. I have tried putting the memory into another slot and also put in a different memory chip inside and the BSOD still comes up. My BSOD is as follows: a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. a process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated. if this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. if this screen appears again, follow these steps: check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. if this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need. if problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. if you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode. Technical information: *** STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0xFFA19020, 0xFFA19194, 0x805FA19A) Beginning dump of physcial memory physcial memory dump complete. contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance. After reading previous threads, I believe I can get help by posting MiniDumps. So hopefully I attach it correctly. Any help is greatly appreciated. Almost forgot, here are my system specs: Dell Dimension 2400 Pentium 4 2.20 GHz 256 MB Ram Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP1 I think that is all. Thanks in advance.
