Ok so my computer was retarded for a few weeks.. I formatted and it died down for awhile.. then toiday all of sudden it came back seemed to be right after i got realplayer on .. although not sure if this had anything to do with it. It started out with a BAD_Pool or something and I restarted and it BSODed me again and this time I recorded the BSOD.. it was Code: Technical information: Stop x0000008e C0xc0000005, 0xBF82O1AB, OXBF8201AB, OXB254BFB7c OX00000000 win32k.sys addresss BF8201AB base at BF80000 Base Stamp 43446958 I've also been getting multiple BSOD with another mesage somethinga bout PAGE_ERROR_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_ERROR.. any ideas? before I reformatted I got the error such as: Code: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Technical information: kmixer.sys address b17b5a97 base at B17B400 date stamp 4c8448fcd31 as well as Code: win32ksys-address BF80F865 base at BF82000, date stamp 43446a58 And one last thing.. I've gotten a black screen saying windows/system32/ntfs.sys is missing and to insert Windows XP CD to try and fix it.. I got this problem last time before I re-formatted and it occured after I got the bSOD.. and the BSOD messge i got now was similiar to the old problem I think.. I haven't ran the memory test yet as I can't due to me not being able to enter windows without it crashign on me.
