    Can we please have some system specs and a little more detail on when this error appears? What are you doing when it appears?

    Have you installed the motherboard's chipset drivers?

    Try running with just one stick of RAM at a time. You've got some timer routines on the stack, and this is usually a sign of a RAM problem.

    The error points to USBPORT.sys. Are you using a USB modem?

    Spyware, malware infected?

    Can you reinstall or update the motherboards chipset drivers?

    It really does no good just to be able to "Read" minidumps, you have to learn to interpret the results...

    Automatically choosing to check memory, hard drives and system drivers, give much faster results in finding the cause of the error in the first place

    actually after that bsod i installed the new drivers for my video card (didnt know they had some new ones on friday) and i changed my virtual memory to be managed by the system .. and so far ... ( i dont want to jinx it ) but no bsod ..

    That's good news keithg. It is good to let Windows manage virtual memory. If you had set it manually, maybe your hard drive space is getting low, even with 2 large drives. 2GB of RAM should be plenty though

    The same USBPORT.sys... So you have no special USB devices other than maybe a mouse or keyboard? Does the system crash and restart on it's own?

    it used to flash blue screen then restart but i disabled that so i can see the error ..

    here is what i just did .. i have reinstalled windows - unplugged my usb keyboard and mouse so iam using ps2 now .. and i am just updating windows and my motherboard and video card drivers - iam going to start with Nothing installed again ..
