Windows XP random reboots

  1. Hi everyone,
    Recently I'm having frequent windows random reboots while playing wow (world of warcraft).
    I looked through some posts in this forum and managed to grab the minidump files from my pc directory and posted.
    Wonder anyone could help me take a look?
    There are 3 different types of failures:
    the computer has rebooted from a bugcheck the bugcheck was: 0x1000008e
    the computer has rebooted from a bugcheck the bugcheck was: 0x10000041
    the computer has rebooted from a bugcheck the bugcheck was: 0x10000050
    and I attached one dump for each failure.

    Thanks a lot if anyone could give a an answer!!

    The -06 file shows Ventrilo.exe as the at-fault caller.

    The -04 file notes specifically memory corruption-1 bit while wow.exe runs.

    The -03 file notes no driver fault could be identified BUT sees 'IP_misaligned' which is known to indicate hardware problems.


    So:

    Test your ram throughly including cycling stick at-a-time.

    Fixed? No!

    Uninstall Ventrilo and WoW and re-install JUST WoW and run for a few days and see.

    btw, could the -06 file due to ventrilo be a memory problem as well? Since there have been millions of people using ventrilo and wow together and so far no conflict issues have been raised..
    Thanks~
