Computer trouble - mini dump included

  1. Hi all,

    had some trouble recently. First, my computer wouldn't start (would get to the screen with the scrolling blue bar and freeze). This happened about 6 times in a row, then seemed to be working fine.

    However, I've just gotten a blue screen (for the first time in a long while). I'm using my computer for a very large project just now so it's important I get it as stable as possible.

    I've attatched a mini-dump, if there is any more info I can give, just let me know.

    Thanks

    Your minidump is corrupt and unreadable. This is often a sign of faulty ram.

    Test your ram as per these instructions.

    If that doesn`t help, read this thread HERE.

    Post 5 or 6 of your latest minidumps.

    Regards Howard :)

    Thanks for getting back to me, and sorry about the delay.

    Memory has tested ok with seven passes, I've ran check disk and created a new page file - but I've just had another blue screen of the type "page fault in non-paged area". I've attatched a mini-dump, but from the looks of it it's corrupted like the last one. When this dump occurred, I was running azeurus, and clicked on firefox to open it. It didn't open, just the blue screen.

    I download a lot, though not excessively, and have got norton security suite (I know it's a but of a hog but it's kept me fairly clean - I say fairly because I did get a virus recently but it was quickly detected and removed with spyware doctor, which I also scan with occasionally).

    Any more advice you can offer would be appreciated.

    Regards,

    gubar

    Your latest minidump carshes at anti_rkt.sys. I believe this is the driver for the AVG Antirootkit porgramme.

    I suggest you uninstall AVG Antirootkit.

    Regards Howard :)
