    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    1 Minidump crashes at portcls.sys. This is the Windows Port Class (Class Driver for Port/Miniport Devices). It also references nvapu.sys. This is part of the Nforce wdm drivers. The owning process is dndclient.exe, Dungeons & dragons. It has a bugcheck of D1.

    1 minidump crashes at ati2mtag.sys. This is part of your video card drivers. The owning process is Dungeon & dragons. It has a bugcheck of 4E.

    0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

    0x0000004E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT

    This indicates that the memory management Page File Number list is corrupted. Can be caused by corrupt physical RAM, or by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists.

    Update your video card drivers and your mobo drivers.

    It may be caused by faulty ram or a damaged page file.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions for testing your ram/hdd/pagefile etc.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    thanks a lot for the quick reply.
    Ive recently formated the hdd because of the problem, nothing changed.
    I checked the hdd for errors, none found.
    The thing is different sys files crash each time...
    My nforce and ATI drivers are the most recent, nothing more I can do about that.
    The mobo I own has many memory controller settings, Ive tried A LOT of things and nothing has changed.
    The one thing I should have tried but I couldnt face is 1 RAM stick, but I recently RMAed my RAM, I cant believe Im so unlucky to have 2 faulty sets of RAM :(

    I also get crashes to desktop, getting these msgs in event viewer:

    It seems Dungeons & Dragons is the leading culprit. Have you tried uninstalling it to see if it helps?

    DDO is not the problem. I got crashes in other games too... Only games of course, in windows environment everything works fine.
    Its driving me crazy.

    If you`re not willing to do the ram tests, there`s not a lot I can do really.

    Regards Howard :)
