I've got plenty of BSODs and BSODs plenty for me!

  1. Hardware specs: Abit AL8 mobo
    intel P4 D 830
    GeIL DDR2 PC4200 1gb x 4
    first attempt video: ATI All-In-Wonder X600 Pro
    2nd attempt video: NVidia/PNY GeForce 7300 GS
    ATI Remote Wonder
    Samsung SyncMaster 204T
    Unotron SpillSeal CS5100K
    Wacom Intos3 9x12 graphics tablet w/mouse & pen
    HDD: 2x300gb Maxtor SATA
    DVD/CD: 2xSony DRU-720A
    FDD/memory card: Ultra 3.5" floppy with 6-in-one reader
    all wrapped up in an Antec Titan 550

    Software: Windows XP Pro SP2 all updates applied (autoupdate enabled)
    Firefox 2.0
    Office 2007 Beta
    IE 7 Beta

    ISP: Comcast (fwiw)

    Symptoms: radom BSODs - were PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA mostly.

    I followed the advice on the forum of blowing the dust out of the machine, including the memory sockets, cleaned the memory connections, ran Memtest for 12 cycles, swapped the memory around, was inconclusive. I flashed my BIOS to the latest revision, updated all drivers. It seemed to settle down for a while so I put my original video card back in and reinstalled the drivers for it and the old nemisis error 0x0000008E was back which was what prompted me to try a different video card in the first place. I really *have* to get this whole setup to work or I will never hear the end of it from my wife, who was not happy with the fact that I spent as much money on the thing as I did and it doesn't work reliably. The last two mini-dumps are included in zip format.

    Try update your video card drivers to its latest available.

    The sam_ati2dvag.dll is at a different date to the rest of the drivers. I've never seen this driver before and couldn't find any info on it.
