    Hi anad welcome to the TechSpot Forum

    Thanks for the dump files, if you post any more can you put them all in one Zip file rather than 1 in each.

    Ok heres your analysis.

    Number 1 crashes with a bugcheck of 0x8E this is the advice from the help section
    "Faulty device driver or system service. In addition, a faulty device driver or system service might be responsible for this error. Hardware issues, such as BIOS incompatibilities, memory conflicts, and IRQ conflicts can also generate this error.

    Number 2 crashes with a bugcheck 0x77_0 this is indicative of faulty or failing memory and we advise downloading Memtest86 from here, let is run overnight for at least 7 passes.

    Number 3 has a bugcheck of 0x1a this again is a memory issue.

    Number 4 and 5 both have a bugcheck of 0xA once again this points to a memory issue


    So on the whole I would say that your memory may be the culprit, however failing PSU's can also cause similar problems, you can use this free calcualtor to check.

    Let us know how you go on.

    Regards

    Now as ididmyc600 pointed out, it is most likely a memory issue. It may however, also be your IDE cable. Check it out to be sure, cant hurt.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for your replys so far guys,much appreciated.
    I spent the afternoon running the memory test,gave it 8 passes but nothing showed up.The only differnece now is that now my DVDROM is now also not reading disks and crashing when I do so.
    With regards to my PSU its rated at 375Watts but not sure how to check if its faulty or not.
    Also,dont have another IDE cable to check if its dodgy.
    Heres asome info on my latest crash if its any use.

    Never thought of that one..

    Here's an idea you can try, swap the IDE cable between the Harddrive and the DVD drive, see how you go.

    In fact swap the Harddrive over on to the IDE channel the DVD is on, you might need to change the boot order.

    It might be a bad cable or IDE socket, in which case replace the cable or you Motherboard may be faulty,

    I'll take a look at your latest dumps shortly.


    Ok I looked at the dumps and again they all point to the memory being an issue, bear in mind when we say memory it can be the L2 cache on the CPU as well as main and video memory, you could really do with swapping out the sticks for new and seeing if this cures the issue , or if you have 2 sticks remove 1 at a time and see what happens.
