  1. Hi all,

    I was playing a game last night when it randomly crashed. I tried opening it again, but it just constantly crashes. I thought it was just the game but Firefox and other applications started crashing too. I gave it a rest and went to bed. I didn't bother opening the game today but Firefox still crashes etc.. I tried scanning for a virus but the antivirus crashed in the middle of a scan. I noticed one or two applications in my desktop won't open as well. Later on, I got a BSOD (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA). I couldn't view the minidump because it won't let me install (installer crashes too).

    I've attached the minidump so you guys can check it for me.

    First thing you need to do is update to Service Pack 3, SP2 is no longer supported by Microsoft leaving your PC wide open to attack.

    Then follow this guide to test your memory. Report back with the results.
