  1. Hi,

    I'm having BSOD problems and get the event 1003 logged. I have gone through the "Before posting your minidumps, please read this" post and done everything mentioned there, but I still get a event 1003 log. Strange thing is that the error code varies from each time. This is the last one I got:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: System Error

    I have attached a minidump.

    Grateful for any help!

    As we have said so, so many times... One minidump is not enough to accurately diagnose any computer program. Your single minidump points to Win32K.sys...

    Try lowering your RAM timings or test the memory. Try one stick at a time if you are running 2 or more memory sticks

    Sorry about that, I have attached another minidump. How many minidumps will be needed to get a good idea of what is causing the problem?

    The RAM is scrupulously tested without any errors. You mention lowering my RAM timings, is this done in the BIOS?

    ntoskrnl.sys is this minidump. You can supply another 5 or 6 minidumps and we may not get any further. Can we have your system specs? Have you downloaded or changed anything that may have caused these errors? ... and yes the memory timings are in the bios

    My PC is getting old, but the specs are:
    Mobo: Abit KT 7
    CPU: AMD Athlon 1,3Ghz
    RAM: 1 Gb SDRAM
    Graphics: Sapphire Radeon 9600XT
    Sound card: Creative Audigy2
    HD: Seagate 70GB

    The only thing that I have downloaded are MS updates and graphic card updates. Presuming it was the graphic card drivers that were the problem I sent a ticket to ATI and it seems that after doing all thing they asked me to do and still the problem persisted they meant it must be something else. No hardware changes have been made prior to the problem. I have run through the Seagate DOStools without any errors found.

    I have turned down the memory timings in the bios and will continue testing.

    You are running XP? You could try rolling back to the older ATI driver...

    Yes, I'm running XP Pro SP2. I'll try rolling back to the 7.1 drivers, never got the chance to test them so I don't know if they work any better.
