    Your minidumps is inaccessible by windbg and this is the symptom of bad ram. If you have more than one memory module, take out one of memory module. If your windows does not crash, the removed RAM is faulty.

    I have the same problem

    My computer restarts also, here is the last dump from my last blue screen


    this error happened
    TCPIP.SYS - Blue screen

    Event Log:

    Error code 10000050, parameter1 d4d98a8b, parameter2 00000000, parameter3 f4a051cb, parameter4 00000000.


    How do i solve it?

    This also was in the blue screen PAGE_FAULT_NONPAGE_AREA
    TCPIP.SYS



    also there is a warning in the event log saying

    TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts.


    what is that mean?


    see attached minidump... Help me out

    Hi Shark M,

    Faulty RAM is the culprit.

    By experience, I've studied over 500 minidumps. Your BSOD crashed at tcpip which is a stable routine. It crashes only if hardware error. You must understand that minidump is a snapshot when windows crashes. Usually we requires to 8 to 10 minidumps to confirm the root causes. Some problem may have multiple culprits such as video display driver fault and faulty RAM.

    Install microsoft windbg and it is the tool to analyse the minidump.
