    Check the C:\Windows\Minidump directory for .dmp files and attach them in the next post.

    Test your RAM with Memtest86.

    :) Okay, good work, you've found them, but you'll have to attach them to your post for us to download them. Attach the following .dmp files:

    mini031308-01
    mini032308-01
    mini032308-02
    mini032408-01
