  1. Hello folks,

    I am new to the site and compared to most of you prolly a noob when it comes to computer stuff. My pc has been locking up and its driving me insane as I keep on loosing work....

    It keeps on dumping physical memory with the following message:
    0x4000008 (0x8995ADO, 0x892B2E68, 0x805567E8, 0x00000001)

    I have attached a copy of the latest Minidump for reference.

    Any insight information and solution suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance

    Rich

    Hey Rick,
    the minidump points to Rtenicxp.sys as the problem. This translates to a RealTek Network Interface Card driver. Do you have a RealTeck NIC installed? If so, either try updating the driver or install another card

    Thank you for your help. I have reinstalled the driver... I hope it fixes it.

    Thank you again

    So far so good, the computer used to crash 3-5 times a day- so far it hasn't crashed once.

    Thanks
