Dear Reader! I own a AMD 3000+ 1 gig dual channel (2*512 Twinmos) ram geforce 6800GT with Windows XP installed. The drivers are up to date, the system is clean and protected. Yesterday i installed a new PC game and played a game with it (worms 4 mayhem). The very moment i hit the 'quit' button the screen went blue and i got a STOP error that requires me to restart the system: Error message in the lower part of the blue screen: *STOP: 0x0000007F (0x00000008, 0x80042000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) I let him save the dump and reboot. This seems not te be related to the new software. Just 5 minutes later, after restarting the system, i open a browser (opera) to look what i find on the problem. I close the browser 5 minutes later, and i get the very same error, same error code. Once again when closing a program. I fear that i do have a damaged system component. Can you help me? What can i do to find the component? How can i find out, if it is related to faulty software? The system seems to work at the moment, but i did not close a program within the last hour. EDIT: I just closed my opera browser. This leads again to the same error: Bluescreen. It looks like i can not close certain programs without crashing the system. I can close winrar, internet explorer, explorers. I cant close Worms, Opera. This does point to a software error, no?
