Please help - frequent BSOD

By Todd Lawrence

  1. Hi, my name is Todd Lawrence and I have been experiencing frequent BSODs over the past year. Hopefully someone can help make sense of why this is happening. The most frequent crashes have stated driver error with NVIDIA file, Realtek Audio file, system files such as win32k.sys and memory errors (various such as trying to write to read-only, etc).

    My operating system info is:
    Windows XP SP2
    AMD Athlon XP2600+
    1.92 GHz, 512 Mb Ram
    NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440 with AGP8x
    The motherboard has an onboard video card (S3?) which I believe is disabled.

    I have included several minidump files to hopefully help.

    Thank-you in advance for any help!

    Most likely a RAM problem. One of the dumps has six memory errors and another crashed at a routine that is a sign of a RAM problem.

    Clean out any dust that's accumulated inside which might be causing overheating. Make sure that the RAM slots are free of dust. You can also try the RAM in another slot.

    BugCheck 1000000A, {4, 2, 0, 804e6617}
    Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiRemovePageByColor+6a ) <-- sign of faulty RAM.

    BugCheck 1000008E, {c000001d, bf8097ba, f3b49574, 0}
    Probably caused by : memory_corruption
    FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: MEMORY_CORRUPTION_STRIDE. 6 errors : !win32k (bf809780-bf8097b8)
