  1. Hello everybody...

    Please I need really your help as i'm desperate with this proplem.
    I'm getting 4-5 times a day a blue screen on my laptop.
    I have checked my rams and there was no errors comming up on memmtest+.
    i have checked the harddick again no problems .
    what else should i do?
    On the blue screen it says PFN_LIST_CORRUPT
    As i understand this has to do with memmory.
    this also happens a lot when i shutdown windows .

    My computer is:
    Pentium dual core @1.86
    2Gb Ram kingstone
    HDD 80Gb
    Nvidia Geforce Go 7600

    Pls any help is welcome
    thank you very much in advance

    thanks again

    Your first two minidumps state the cause of your crashs is due to Memory Corruption. I know you ran MemTest but for how long? The minimum recommendation is 7 passes but I hold to a minimum of 10 passes as do many others.

    MemTest is a great tool but it is not perfect. I strongly suggest running MemTest on each stick of RAM individually.

    Your third minidump points to PavProc.sys which is a driver for Panda security. However, I would start first with more memory testing.

    thanks alot for your answers..I did find something that could have helped .
    I looked and changed my vga drivers as thy were not from nvidia but from microsoft and since yesterday evening i didn't had any crash while the computer was running all night. Hope this is going to solve my problem.
    Thanks anyway for your help
