    System crashed at i8042prt and it is the symptom of faulty. Some faulty ram can pass memtest.

    1. Downclock the ram
    2. Take memory module one by one. Re-boot windows, if no more blue screen, the unused memory module is bad.
    3. Attach more minidumps here.

    Im actually new at this kinda stuff, the 1st one i should do it in Cmos or Bios right.Actually whts the proper clock speed must i set ? Or leave it as Default Or Auto select ? And the 2nd, you want me to test the ram 1 by 1 ? Taking out 1ram out testing the other 1 ? If its that the way, yes the system is running with 1ram now, only 256.Ever since there been no Bsod. Another problem i was having was is ScreenFreeze, does it got to do with the same ram problem ?Because if this ram(which is running now) gonna cause no problem, then im gonna test the other ram also.Should i run memtest now ? Because i read somewhere the minimum capasity should be like 1gig in order to run memtest.Guide me.Thank You for you help untill now.
