I'm currently not having major issues, there's one thing but I have a hunch that it's unrelated. Computer is virus/adware/etc. there's nothing that I don't want running and I'm a fairly savvy user. Now here's the two issues: Sometimes the internet just kinda dies but today it acted strangely, I tried to open up a new site in either firefox or IE and it was as if the computer knew it was not going to happen and that firefox didn't even try it seemed. You'd hit enter on the tab and it would remain the way it was, no error page...IE went directly to the page could not load. Mind you I'm still connected to IM and IRC, so I logoff IRC and attempt to reconnect and receive "no buffer space available" error. Having looked this up, I couldn't really get a reliable reason as to how to fix my specific issue...I have already altered the number of tcp/ip connections to allegedly prevent dumb stuff like that. I released and renewed my connections and restarted the router...worked temporarily but then ultimately rebooted once the error appeared again. Event log didn't really show anything useful, no errors or strange networking occurances. I did check netstat -e -n and there were a lot of bytes, more than my RAM received. The other issue is when I reboot and check event log after strange things like that which occasionally happen, I find a "computer has rebooted from a bugcheck" message. After rebooting I saw this save dump event: The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000050 (0xbad0b158, 0x00000000, 0x8056ea22, 0x00000000). A full dump was not saved. EDIT: out of curiosity I wanted to see system failure options and although I was very certain automatic restart was turned off, apparently it is not, but a full memory dump is enabled so any errors that it attempts to write the dump it displays the blue screen. This occurs after the computer is booting up and as far as I can tell there isn't a reboot on top of the restart I ordered. My best guess is something didn't close properly on shutdown. As said, I'm not experiencing random crashes, strange failures, "real" bluescreens. I'm not really alarmed but just can't figure out myself why that bugcheck is happening and 0x050 is paging memory in a nonpaged area but that's the STOP error which I technically have had once but it probably had more to do with running some of the old games I own with fairly leaky programming imo. Just to note, the one random reboot that I haven't been able to recreate lately but has happened in the past is the handful of racing games I own would randomly reboot in the middle of play (sound jams together, frozen screen, then bluescreen) with the most useless STOP error IIRC regarding IRQ NOT LESS OR EQUAL. I can pull it up but you're probably familiar with me referring to it as the one that could be anything from RAM, driver conflicts. Recently I have been playing these games again and have yet to reproduce these errors running these games (rfactor, gtr2, gtr) but I am running them without my racing wheel and without fullscreen mode. I right now tend to blame either of those for causing the reboot. Hopefully someone can give me some ideas, thanks.
