BSOD cause??

  1. i had a go at running these minidumps through the windows debugger myself but couldn't make much sense of them

    AMD Athlon 2600+
    VIA mother board with onboard sound and ethernet
    512 MB ram (forget the speed)
    ATI Raedon 9250 AGP video card...

    those are the limited specs i remember, as it is a friends computer (sorry)...

    yeah i already updated the video card drivers as i thought they might have been the cause and Memtest86+ was ran for half-an-hour (i was only able to run for a bit while i was there)

    your help would be greatly appreciated

    4 minidumps are crashed at kmixer and they are signs of faulty ram. Your windows are also crashed with various bugcheck code (50, 7E, 8E and D1). Various bugcheck codes imply the crash occur random and it is also the sgin of faulty ram. Run memtest to stress test the ram
