  1. I have been getting a BSOD lately. Almost every day when i use my pc, it crashes 1-2 times. BSOD's happens when i'm using basic programs like firefox, mIRC, ABC and Winamp at the same time.

    specs:
    AMD Athlon XP 1900+@1200 MHz (it's underclocked)
    memory: 2x256 MB
    Abit KT7A
    Elsa gladiac 511
    LG GSA-4163B CD/DVD burner
    Creative Sound Blaster PCI 128

    OS: Windows XP SP2

    Please, help me with this problem.

    Hi,

    The culprit may be faulty ram because your windows crashes with bugcheck code 1A and two minidumps are crashed with IRQL x'ff'. They are the symptom of faulty memory.

    Suggestion
    1. Run memtest. If memtest does not find any errror, de-install ZoneAlarm.
    2. If it still crashes, re-install windows
