  1. I am having problems with my pc which i recently built.
    When carrying out tasks or playing games for a couple of hours my system will shut down the application/game that i am using and and say "Unexpected error occured" but mostly i get the blue screen of death saying

    BCCode: f4 BCP1: 00000003 BCP2: 89439020 BCP3: 89439194
    BCP4: 80606586 OSVer: 5_1_2600 SP: 2_0 Product : 768_1

    i click on error report and it shows :

    C: DOCUME~1/MidlandsFarmer/LOCALS~1/WERaf15.dir00/mini020210-02.dmp
    C: DOCUME~1/MidlandsFarmer/LOCALS~1/WERaf15.dir00/sysdata.xml

    my PC specs are :

    Asrock G31M-S motherboard
    Intel Celeron D E3200 2.4Ghz
    512mb nVidia GeForce 8400 GS
    Maxtor DiamondMax 80gb 2mb Hrd Drive

    please offer advice on what the problem could be

    Many thanks

    You can post those minidumps here. Or you can simply go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Event Viewer, and see what error has been logged and give their Event ID number and details here, so we can help.

    Event ID 1003 carries so many possibilities; if would be difficult to comprehend what may be the actual issue unless you provide bit more detail; try reading what the logs are saying; e.g. The task associated with resource '<filename here>' couldn't be deleted.

    It may even be telling you what file/service is causing it.

    Faultrep.dll is part of Microsoft Windows. It's used amongst other things for windows memory dump.

    If you are getting BSODs can you please post minidumps here?

    sorry to ask but how do you get the mini dumps to appear on this forum? and do you need to open them with any programs?

    Go to C:\Windows\minidump

    See if there are any dump files available. If you have them, to post them here, click on Go Advanced button, and then click that tiny clip icon (along side the smiley). Select the files needed to be attached from your computer and click attach, once done, just click close at the bottom of that window; and post your reply. Regards

    First and thrid minidumps points towards memory corruption issues with 0x1a error code, usually this almost always mean something is up with the RAM. IMHO you should run memtest for atleast 12+ passes, and see whether it catches any errors (also here is a guide for memtest). You'll need to be patient with it though, because this test will take some time to complete, its best to set it run at night.

    Second, says there are issues with NTFS (file system) on your hard disk. Download Partition Wizard and install it. Once installed, run it (you need administrative privileges to run), right click on your hard disk partitions (one by one to check all) and click on Check File System, an dialog box will appear which will give you option just to Check only, or Check/and fix detected errors. To be on safe side, just select Check only and click on Start.

    Please post your results from both of the above suggestions for further advice. Regards
