another 0x00000050 error - with a twist...

  1. Hi everyone...
    My time has come and my beloved computer is getting 0x00000050 errors after a power failure.
    It is very consistent, and a repair to the system has not solved the problem (but a clean install has, which makes me believe it's a software issue and not hardware related).

    The most annoying thing however is that a minidump is not written to the minidump directory. Since I can't get into windows I cannot be sure if the option is set or not. I was able to edit the registery using the "load hive" option from my fresh installation and setting (what i think are) the relevant keys, but to no avail. I am not sure if I did it correctly however, so if someone knows how it should be done let me know.

    Also, removing the memory/other hardware did nothing at all.
    Please, if anyone can help on this I would really apreciate it, since installing a new system would take days.
