    This is a everest report of my pc.
    The problem i'm having is my pc keeps crashing for no apparent reason and has been driving me mad for the last 2 years. The pc has random crashes & there is no specific pattern. Sometimes it can be fine for weeks without a problem. Then other times it just crashes & reboots. Other times it will just lockup. Games don't seem to be a problem. It will just crash doing something as basic as just closing or opening a window. The error message on reboot reads:

    BCCode : 10000050 BCP1 : E43A4000 BCP2 : 00000001 BCP3 : BF95D8B4
    BCP4 : 00000001 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 256_1

    I'm at my wits end with this & this is my last go at trying to fix problem before i ditch pc and cough for a new one.
    Havn't really got that kind of money & is a shame as the pc is very good when working properly. I use pc very often & have these programes installed on it.

    Download and run Memtest86... which is free... for four hours or 7 passes, which every is longer. Run again in Safe mode.
    I don't see AVG AntiSpyware, but would like to see spyware, spybot and awaware tests.
    What CPU fan do you use, and is the heat sink clean?
    You might want to upgrade your memory, as you have a lot of demands on that 768 already installed.
