  1. so ive been having problems with this PC i have been trying to repair. It has been freshly reformatted. While 2 sticks of RAM are promptly reboots when i load a few programs.

    With 1 stick hasn't rebooted on me at all, BUT the user said it shutdown on him even with just the 1 stick in..but that was after a day of use.

    i am posting my minidump files here if someone would help me read these, i downloaded the debugger and all but i can't seem to figure out how to read it, even after reading a walkthrough CPC gave another user.

    thanks for the help

    edit: btw.... event id 1003
    error code 1000008e
    read up on that...usually faulty drivers/cards/ram/hardware etc

    i tried stick #2 solo..and the machine wouldnt boot up past bios

    i suppose its bad and the system reboot during use of stick 1 was a fluke, i found nothign of importance in event viewer, if you want to read my minidumps go ahead, if not, that's fine.
