Computer keeps crashing with no warning (minidumps attached)

  1. The last time I had hardware errors I had to replace my power supply. I purchased a very cheap power supply for starters just to see if it was a power supply issue and that appeared to have fixed the problem. I figured it was the power supply this time so I purchased a very expensive name brand power supply but the computer keeps crashing after being on for a few hours. I attached my minidumps to see if anyone can help with this issue.


    Windows XP SP2


    Amd 2500+ Barton 333 Mhz Bus
    Shuttle AN35N Ultra-400 Motherboard
    1 – 256MB Ram 333Mhz FSB (Kingston)
    1 – 256MB Ram 333Mhz FSB (Patriot)
    Nvidia FX5200 Video Card 128MB Ram
    1 – Hitachi 80GB 7200rpm Drive
    1 – Hitachi 90GB 7200 rpm Drive
    8X DVD/RW
    Hauppauge PVR-150 Video Capture Card
    400 Watt Power Supply

    1 minidump is not enough to be able to make a diagnosis.

    For reference only. Your minidump crashes with memory corruption and a bugcheck of 77.


    A page of kernel data requested from the pagefile could not be found or read into memory. This message also can indicate disk hardware failure, disk data corruption, or possible virus infection.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    If that doesn `t help zip 5 or 6 of your latest minidumps together and attach them here.

    Regards Howard :)
