    Hi,

    One minidump is insufficient to determine the culprit. Attach more minidumps here. Windbg cannot access your minidump and this is the symptom of faulty ram. Run memtest to stress test the ram.

    Hi,

    System restart without blue screen and this is the symptom of faulty RAM or PSU. If it is software problem, windows recovery routine takes a dump and reboot.

    Hi CPC2004

    Thanks for your reply.
    i have downloaded the memtest for the Memtest86.org. i also created the memtest boot floopy and tried to boot from the floppy for testing the ram but it doesn't boot from the floopy. how can i test the PSU(power supply unit).

    Hi,

    Change the BIOS setting to boot the system from floppy disk then hard disk. Prime 95 executes at windows environment and it can stress test your CPU and memory.

    Hi,

    All of your minidumps are inaccessible and it is the symptom of hardware error.
