BSOD Windows XP SP2

  1. Hi..

    Had a problem with my PC on Monday. PSU did some thing fruity and died a death. Whatever happened seemed to effect my m/board as well because when i replaced the PSU nothing worked (No keyboard / Mouse etc, USB so suspect some surge etc)

    Replaced the motherboard and had to reinstall XP. Since then i've been having blue screen of death with Driver_IRQL_NOT_Less_OR_EQUAL, Win32k.sys BSOD and Page_Fault_IN_NONPAGED_Area

    Personally i'm thinking the CPU could be up the nile. I've run the mem tests and they all come back A-OK.... But I know the mem test aint always 100% spot on.

    I've attached the dump files (Some of them from a few days ago some from today) and it seems to be crashing for different reasons today!! Let me know what you guys think!!

    Ho Robh001,

    It is memory problem. Maybe your motherboard is incompatible with the ram.

    Suggestion
    1. Check the temperature of the CPU and make sure that it is not overheat (ie temperature < 60C)
    2. Reseat the memory stick to another memory slot
    3. Downclock the ram
    4. Clean the dust inside the computer case
    5. Make sure that the ram is compatible to the motherboard
    If it still crashes, diagnostic which memory stick is faulty
    Take out one memory stick. If windows does not crash, the removed memory stick is faulty.
