  1. Hello everyone.

    Im having tremendous issues with my Wifes computer.

    She loves to play games like Guild Wars, Shadowbane, Empire Earth 2 , The Sims 2. A little problem is holding her back tho, the computer crashes constantly 24/7 when she plays. Sometimes it goes down sometimes it doesnt but it allways ends up hanged up and crashed.

    When i say crash i mean the terrible BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!@!!@!@.

    Yep says' Physical Memory Error" I took it back to the place i bought it at, i know its a hardware issues not software but the geeks at the shop insisted on updating software, installing Windows again and so on.

    Before i go back and talk to the bastards who supposedly fixed the computer can anyone point me in the right direction of this issue. Maybe is something i can fix myself perhaps. Main Issue

    " Computer Crashes to Blue Screen saying ( Physical Memory Error) while shes playing computer games like Guildwars and Empire Earth"

    System Specs:
    AMD 64 3000+ 1.9ghz
    1gig Ram
    180gig Hard Drv SATA
    6600GT Nvidia PCIe.

    Thank you so much for your support.


    Zeroos.

    Made me laugh. Probably not your intention, but you did!

    First let's test your ram.

    Run this program on it. www.memtest86.com and see if any errors come up.

    Maybe bad RAM or software error of Firewall utility. When Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 or 1003 and a minidump to the folder \windows\minidump. Check system event 1001 and 1003 and it has the content of the blue screen

    Event ID: 1001
    Source: Save Dump
    Description:
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.The bugcheck was : 0xc000000a (0xe1270188, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804032100).
    Microsoft Windows..... A dump was saved in: .......

    Event Source: System Error
    Event Category: (102)
    Event ID: 1003
    Description:
    Error code 1000007f, parameter1 0000000d, parameter2 00000000, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000

    Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001/1003. Copy the content and paste it back here

    Zip 5 to 6 minidumps a zip file and attach the it here. Techspot has a upper limit of 100K per attachment. I will study the dump and find out the culprit.
