  1. Hi all I have a problem on one of my PC's its BSOD's every now and then!

    I have tried reading the minidump file with some success and I have got a probably caused by quote:

    Probably caused by : win32k.sys ( win32k!HeavyAllocPool+3b

    I have attached the file in case you need to have a look, I would also like some help on being able to make it easier to read these files.

    best regards Lee

    Found the reason for the BSOD - Memory timings!

    I messed around with the timings and then I dropped the cas latency to 3.0 from 2.5 and no more BSOD. I initially did some memory tests but wasn't convinced it was bad.

    Plus I have sorted out the debugging thing, messed around with some posts changed the syntax a bit because almost all the posts had syntax errors, so just made a text file with the correct settings and easy peasy lemon squeezy lol!

    Best regards Lee
