Frequent Crashes/BSOD/Problems

By Simulation
Apr 19, 2007
  1. For the first year or two the computer I built was running perfectly, but lately it has been having problems. I'll be playing Counter-Strike:Source and it will either randomly crash giving me an error about "datacache.dll" or I'll get a blank bluescreen, or my computer will just restart. It usually crashes more often when playing a game, but sometimes it also crashes doing normal activities.

    I attached some of my minidumps below, if you need more just ask, I have alot of them...

    If you need any other information just tell me and I'll try my best to get it.

    Thanks,
    -Sim

    EDIT :: Also here's a windows recovery error thing--

    There has been a rash of reports of this and similar datacache.dll errors. You can do a Google search for them, and perhaps find similarities between your system and what others are reporting.

    Already looked it up, no solution. I want to fix the crashing/BSOD first, though. That's more important to me.

    One of the dumps is citing memory corruption as the probable cause. What's your RAM setup? Any overclocking? Run Memtest. Also, post any new minidumps.
