  1. I know many people have had this problem in the past but I can't fix this one. Here is the Windbg dump record, all of them are the same.

    Im having the same problem, I've changed HD, RAM, Graphics card, Mobo, updated drivers and BIOS, checked for malware, ran a CPU checker, memtest - the whole lot and it still crashes.

    From day one I've been convinced its the processor (AMD Athlon 3000+) but Im yet to change this, spent enough already - might as well as just bought a new PC

    Also Windows Explorer / Internet Explorer crashes alot too - dont know if this is the same with you or its a related problem?
