    When Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 or 1003 (ie Source : Save Dump) and a minidump to the folder \windows\minidump
    Check system event 1001 or 1003 and it has the content of the blue screen

    Event ID: 1001
    Source: Save Dump
    Description:
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.The bugcheck was : 0xc000000a (0xe1270188, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804032100).
    Microsoft Windows..... A dump was saved in: .......

    Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001 or 1003. Copy the content and paste it back here

    Zip 5 to 6 minidumps and attach the zip files here.

    You must define the pagefile at C:and windows only writes minidump to pagefile at drive C: when windows crashes with BSOD.

    aite it crashed again 2day. the mssge was DRVR IRQ_lessthanorequal to

    further down it said Stop:0x000000D1 (0x00000003, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF786F907) ok then then it identified this file Mvstdi5x.sys

    I searched the file later and find out it was a driver for my antivirus firewall.. however i dont use a firewall with my anti virus.. can i jus delete it or what.. i will attach the minidump here

    It is software error at mvstdi5x.sys (Anti-Virus Mini-Firewall Driver)

    BugCheck 100000D1, {3, 2, 0, f786f907}
    Probably caused by : mvstdi5x.sys ( mvstdi5x+2907 )

    well thanx for the help.. i uninstalled virusscan.. its free from my college but i guess i'll have to use another Virusscanner b/c this one is causing probs.. i dloaded mcafee online just wondering if mayb i should just go with AVG or another free virusscanner than mcafee b/c possibley they would have less strain on the system resources. but i dk if they are reliable enof. anyway if u have any advice i;d appreciate it and hopefully the BSOD is gone for good.. however it comes once every couple days and it hasnt happend yet so we'll see.. thnx again

    If you're still getting BSOD, I'd bet any amount of money that it's your ram. The best way to test if it's the ram, imo, is to replace it for a week.

    I've been getting these BSODs now for months and still no definite solution!! Grr... changed from XP sp2 to sp1 and now back again.. no change... updated drivers, no change... ran various virus and bug checkers, which will all find stuff wrong with my comp, so i get rid of them, and the problems continue!!
    I'm sure some hardware like my graphics card needs replacing or i've got faulty ram but how do i make sure of this and how do i go about fixing it!! Any help greatly appreciated!

    Here's some of the bsods minidumps i've been getting:

    Just buy new ram from crucial.com...it only cost you a couple of bucks. Put the new stuff in and see if it fixes the problem.
