  1. Hi,

    I have BSoD's for month's now when starting a game or browsing (when browsing, BSoD occurs after 1-2 hours and when starting a game it just crashes automatically)

    this is my BSoD's (from minidumps)

    It would have been more prudent if you zipped & posted your minidumps for analysis. Anyway, 0xD1 and 0x1a can also be caused by hardware issues.

    But before going any further, have you updated anything in the period preceding the BSODs (e.g. drivers update or some new hardware addition etc.)? If so please restore your system to to such previous restore point where these changes are not present.

    When was the last time you cleaned out your system (i.e. gotten rid of any dust etc.)?

    If that is not the case, first, run memtest (for atleast 8 passes, more are better), to see if it is causing these issues. Regards

    from xp, we have BSoD's like i posted then, we switched to Win7, it still occurs, then we switched back to xp its still occuring. we can't get rid off it.

    we cleaned the computer last thursday so theres no help if i clean it again.

    and we if we run memtest, it hangs or BSoD.

    we don't know what we will gonna do to our computer, so we just browsing for 3 months. because we can't fix it.

    I agree with Archean about running memtest and the fact if it hangs at Memtest I believe you are looking at corrupted memory at this point.

    The error PFN_LIST_CORRUPT is probably the strongest indicator of bad RAM. Take out all memory sticks but one and run your system. If it doesn't crash or if it does then switch out sticks and run.

    I agree with Route's valuable input and your quote above suggest that you have bad ram.

    there's one thing i've noticed,
    here in the philippines it so hot right now.. last week it rained for almost 6 hours
    and exactly the same time when we cleaned the computer, so i tested it, i played call of duty 4 almost the whole day. no BSoDs or hangs, after that, i wake up in the morning to play again, after 15 minutes it hangs then BSoD.

    so it can be overheating or bad RAM? or bad RAM and overheating?

    Perhaps a mix of both; as a bad RAM stick is more susceptible to fail under duress. Whereas, a good hardware device would fail much later, that too most likely if you are pushing the envelope beyond its design limits.

    Can you please tell what are the operating temperatures?

    These doesn't seem too alarming in any way.

    I am more inclined than before to say that it seems to be hardware related issue IMHO.

    so if its an hardware issue, the video card is the problem?

    Most likely issue is your RAM, and Route very rightly suggested you to RUN memtest; I suggest you try to run it on individual RAM modules to see whether one of them is causing the issues.

    another PFN_LIST_CORRUPT again, i can't run memtest.

    I must have missed it, but why can't you run memtest? Does the system shut-down when you tried to run it? What order did you place your CD/DVD drive in the BIOS?

    i ran memtest then BSoD, PFN_LIST_CORRUPT

    I am inclined to say that it is an RAM issue. Did you run memtest on individual modules?
