  1. Could someone pls help my desktop keeps crashing when im downloading torrents using azureus, I first though it could be ram so I ran memtest and found one of the sticks was faulty, it has since been replaced. I reinstalled windows hoping that any spyware like program drivers could be the culprit, but my pc still keeps rebooting. I checked my memory dumps using xp support tools dumpchk, I think it might be a onboard sound thing so i disabled it in BIOS and uninstalled the drivers. Could someone take a look and see if they can make any sense of it.
    Ive only got 2 there (because i just reinstalled xp) im pretty sure there the same.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Both minidumps crash at Mrv8000c.sys. This is your wireless lan card driver.

    Try updating the driver. If that doesn`t help, maybe try a different card.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    It could just be a software conflict.

    Instead of using Azureus, try a different torrent programme and see if you still have problems.

    Regards Howard :)
