    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your minidumps are crashing with memory corruption. This is a symptom of faulty ram.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Thanks Howard,

    latest crash is booting to Windows xp desktop, i can sign into mc afee privacy service, then the mouse moves, but i cant do anything, nothing works, icons, start button, nothing, if i hit a couple keys, mouse freezes and the system cpu beeps every couple of seconds...

    by the way, im testing the ram straight after i send this in.

    Morning lads,

    I think that it was one of the RAM sticks... im down to 256Mb ram but at least it works. I noticed with the bad ram, i wouldnt see the ATI icon in the system tray and after about half a minute the system froze up completely as in my last post about the desktop.

    Cheers for all the help, ill be sure to come back here with any probs in future.

    Go raibh mile mhaith agat Howard.
    (irish for a thousand thankyou's!)
