A friend of mine is having problems with his machine. He gets one or two BSOD's every day. I had him send me the minidumps that were available and looked through them, but was unable to really determine anything. When I look at the crashes using WinDBG it seems like the failures are occurring in different instructions and I can not really find a pattern. I read the sticky about common problems, and my friend says his machine is clean, that he reseated the memory sticks, and that he has a 500M power supply. The error seems to be mostly centered around some sort of internet usage, but at least once it happened while the machine was idle at the desktop. If anyone would be interested in trying to help me out with this, I would appreciate it. I have the minidumps and could upload them if you want. I am sure that you would want the system specs, but I am not certain exactly what they are at this point. If there is a utility you would like run that would list the hardware components, I can get my friend to do that and post the results. Thanks in advance. Russ.
