  1. When i first installed my NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS graphic card (second hand) to my 2gb RAM computer,it worked fine. After I installed new RAMs(2 RAM;1gb each)
    i received several BSOD error messages:
    - Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area
    - system service exception

    I attached minidump files with this post.

    Any ideas on what's wrong?

    Thank You

    If the types of RAM sticks are from different manufacturer / or timings it can cause lots of BSODs. What happen if you take out the newer sticks?

    Ah its about same thing happened to me few months back; I had all kingston ddr2 sticks in my rig; however, suddenly i started to have mysterious BSOD's out of the blue. Upon investigation I found out that one of the ram sticks has gone bad so chucked it out and everything returned to normal; reason I have 6gb ram now ;)
