Hi, I am going to post this then edit, so I dont loose a wall of text from a BSOD in the middle of typing. sorry if this is long winded. My computer has been giving me a lot of grief. I was getting a lot of crc failures on rar extraction so I tested my memory with memtest and found tons of errors so I went and picked up a few more sticks(upgrading from 2x2gb to 4x2gb but it is a slower speed). things went fine for about a week and I installed visual studio 10 ultimate which I couldnt get running right so I did a system restore, but I didnt have one far enough back so I just did the oldest one. after uninstalling reinstalling repairing and updating everything I finally got it to run my programs(im just a student so they arent complicated). at this point I thought I was good but when I came home from work I found a PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA BSOD.
