  1. Hello Guys,

    I'm having random BSOD's with this mainly these 2 error codes, sometimes is the ending in "A", and sometimes ending with 8e, I run memtest86 and I dont detect a problem with my RAM.
    My video card is Nvidia FX-5500 si I also run 2 tests on this card:
    1.-Video Card stability tests
    2.-Checkit (Graphics and Video) tests

    I also run chkdsk /r and sfc but with no luck

    I'm attaching my minidumps to see if one of you can PLEASE help me interpretating so i can see whats the problem.
    I also follow a post that i found describing a possible error with "pe386"
    I run Norton and Avira but nothing too

    Please help :)

    Download Prime95. Select Options > Torture Test > Small FFTs > ok. Monitor the CPU temp at the same time and post back what it reaches. Also, do you have one or two sticks of RAM?

    more info & new BSOD error code 0X0000007E

    I forgot to answer about the memory, i have 2 identical sticks of memory (Kingston) and I bought them at the same time in Kingston to be sure they were identical, also I dont read any error while i run memtest86 on them.
    thanks in advance for your time and help.
    My Video card is Nvidia FX-5500, CPU 3.4 Pent D, runing on WinXP Pro, with all the available patches
    I received a new error code as 0x0000007E

    Looks like you have a CPU problem. Drop the frequency of the CPU by changing the multiplier (in the BIOS) down a notch, e.g. 10x to 9x. Run Prime95 again and see how far it gets. If you get an error then drop the multiplier down another notch. If it becomes stable at some point then you'll know the problem is most likely with the CPU.

    I'll try your suggestion Petervida

    Ok and thanks a lot !!, you think that the processor could be deffective ?

    I'll do what you just told me and see whats happens, I'm planning to leave the PC working for a few days to be sure about the stability and I'll come back with my feedback and comments?
