I believe it to be driver related. I just can’t pin point it. BSODS in the past: STOP: 0X0000008E STOP: 0X000000E3 PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA STOP: 0X00000050 DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL STOP: 0X00000050 NTFS.SYS Reformatted and reinstalled OS: Now I get these BSODs: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL STOP: 0X000000D1 INTELPPM.SYS C000021A STOP: 0XC0000005 FATAL SYSTEM ERROR Windows Subsystem process terminated unexpectedly DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL STOP: 0X000000D1 I’m running WinXP Pro SP2 all Microsoft updates have been applied and Direct X 9c. I’ve installed windows 3x in the last two weeks. Installed newest chipset drivers from Intels website, and even gone back in chipset revisions to see if the system would stabilize, but it didn’t help. I’m running the up to date BIOS form the ABIT site. I also when back three BIOS revisions to see if the system would stabilize, but it didn’t help either. I’m running the most current drivers for Nvidia Geforce FX 5600 and Audigy 2 ZS Gamer. I’ve gone back in revision for Nvidia drivers and Audigy but nothing seems to help the random crashing. I’ve replaced the motherboard, PSU, and Audigy 2 ZS Gamer. I purchased a new Geforce AGP video card to test it the computer would crash. It did. So I took it back and put my old card back in. I also moved my Audigy 2 ZS to every PCI slot on my mobo to check for IRQ conflicts. This didn’t change anything the crashing still happens. I’ve replaced all the wires in the case. At one point I though maybe heat was an issue, so I replaced the CPU fan with an over clocker one. My current temp for the CPU is 38C I’ve seen it at 52C when pushed. The case has two fans in front one in back, one on the CPU of coarse =P , one on the chipset, and two in the PSU. Don’t think heat is an issue. Plus I run the computer with the side off of it anyway. I’ve tested the memory with Memtest86 for 8hrs. No errors found in memory. I’ve tested the HDs with diagnostic software and they check out fine. The Diagnostic on the Audigy 2 ZS checks out fine as well. I’ve run the diagnostic on the Direct X and everything check out fine. I’ve done windows repair sfc /scannow to replace any damaged system files the crash still troubles me. I’ve tried using the system without the keyboard and mouse drivers for the Logitech hardware. I used the Microsoft generic versions and still the computer crashes. I reinstalled the Logitech drivers and the patch for the mouse aswell. I have on ongoing post with Corsair regarding the RAM. The told me to increase my voltage to see if my computer stabilized this didn’t help. http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36064 I’m also working with Creative for the Audigy 2 ZS card. I’ve followed all their instructions on doing a clean install this didn’t help. I’ve installed all the software updates. I even took out the card and uninstalled the drivers and ran onboard sound to test. Computer still crashes. Sometimes while playing games I will here random high pitched sounds coming from the Logitech speakers. (not the internal computer speakers) Only things not replaced in the system are the CPU and the CD-R CD-RW drive. The computer has been running fine for over a year. I’ve attached some of the mini dump files see attached. Please any help with this would be great. *on hands and knees* ~Slifer~ PS: There is nothing in event manager that suggests a problem anywhere. Device manager shows everything being ok as well.
