    I asked you to go HERE and follow the instructions.

    You need to run the memtest86+ programme to test you ram.

    You still haven`t posted your minidumps.

    If you`re are finding things difficult to understand, don`t worry. Not everyone is good with computers.

    It might be a good idea for you to take your computer to a good pc repair shop, as was suggested earlier.

    Regards Howard :)

    first off man you have to realize that these guys talk like they would if i was listnening and not a noobie as you put it... first off the catalyst is just name for the catalyst control center so when you see Ati ccc that is what that is so if you don't see that in the add/remove programs from your control panel don't worry about it.. just find anything in there that says ati and get rid of it then go to the ati website that they had stated from before and download the new drivers.. make sure to follow the instruction carfully from the other threads.. step by step.. these guys know what they are talking about just ask them to simply the answers so that you can understand better then you can learn the slang and lingo and so on... also when you get a BSOD or blue screen of death look down at the bottom left hand corner and if you have enough time the should be a code that starts with a 0x000 and so on write that down and then go to Http://www.support.microsoft.com and run that code in the search bar that will give a better idea of what the cause is.. and not all BSOD's with a memory dump are caused by faulty memory just ask any DELL user...

    hey man just breath... gamebuster or punkbuster is just a program that does not allow you to run cheats in a game or on a hosted server where the game is being played.. first off vga is the blue port on the back side of the video card in the agp (accelerated graphics port) vga ( video graphics array) pci (Peripheral Component Interconnect) and the bios you may see at the beginning of the system turning on it will have BIOS at the top then list major components and such it stands for ( Basic Input Output System).. did you get those drivere ununstalled and the new ones installed dude?? also a realy good place to go for definitions on computer components and the history behind them is http://www.webopedia.com... let us know man and we will help you but you need to listen tell yourself that you can do this.. there is no need to go and pay and arm and a leg at a ma and pa shop when you have all these people that can help you

    You are absolutley correct.

    However, a lot of BSOD`s(over 50%) are caused by faulty/mismatched ram. Hence the need to run memory diagnostics in order to rule out faulty ram.

    absolutley yeah man i was not trying to mislead him to think that you were wrong... i understand what you are saying about the memory dump and the memory but lets think about that fact that he is relativley new with systems and has not changed or bought new memory for his box so it's not mismatche d.. i would think.. the memtest is good...to determine system memory and proc errors..hopefully that is the issue and we can get him back up and gaming soon :grinthumb

    No problem mate.

    If we could just get scyap to run memtest, and post his minidumps, it might help us to get to the bottom of this.

    Regards Howard :)

    Yes there are some females on the forums. Not enough in my opinion. It would be nice to see more of them.

    Unfortunately, it does seem that the world of pc`s is very much male dominated at the moment.

    Anyway, I think we have hijacked scyap`s thread enough for today lol.

    I`m glad you seem to have got rid of your blue screen problem.

    The cli.exe error in your screen shot isn`t really a problem.

    You can either reinstall the ATI software, or you can safely disable the cli.exe from running.

    cli.exe is installed alongside ATI's range of graphics cards with the Catalyst hardware driver range. Installs an easy-to-access taskbar icon for access to diagnostics features. This is a non-essential process. Disabling or enabling this is down to user preference.

    To disable cli.exe click start/run, and type msconfig into the run box, and press the enter key.

    When the windows appears. Click on the startup tab, and look for the enties cli.exe. Untick the checkbox next to it`s entry, and click apply/ok.

    You will be prompted to restart your system.

    After you have rebooted, you will see a window that says "you have used msconfig to make changes" etc. Tick the box that says "not to run msconfig the next time you start your system", and click ok.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards Howard :)
