    Looks like this is caused by an Nvidia driver

    i tried to run a memtest and it keeps getting an error while scanning, awhile ago i also had a BSOD which is PFN_LIST_CORRUPT x04E and some of my programs got corrupt especially on the programs on the taskbar so i tried to system restore it. Any recommendations sir?

    Any errors using memtest86 are not good. Try replacing that memory

    Replace the memory first... If the Nvidia driver BSOD still shows, after the memory replacement, we'll take care of it then. Make sure you have the proper memory for the motherboard. How old is this PC?

    about 6 years and I just replaced the motherboard last december since it is so hard to find ddr2 compatible motherboard and this motherboard can only support up to 800mhz of memory.

    The video card may be failing. You might want to pull it out and clean the dust out of it...

    Yes, that is your Nvidia video card driver. If it won't update, the card may still be bad

    No, that shouldn't be necessary...

    Hi there sir, its been 2 days since the reinstallation of my graphics card driver and no sign of BSOD at the moment, I will report soon as I encounter a BOSD. Hopefully this performance would continue.

    Okay, hopefully it will continue to be BSOD free :)
