Corrupted error reports are rare....arghhhh

  1. right, i had some problems with my comp a while ago, but have been away travelling - forgot about problems but since comming back i have started to get annoyed again!

    everything pointed to RAM so i got some new ram (all compatible) using now and i dont seem to have crashes due to ram (after sending error report) i am now encountering device driver crashes.

    this all seem related to video/graphics card to me but i cannot ressolve. i have downloaded latest drivers and reinstalled graphics card but to no avail - except i get a totally new error message entitled 'Corrupted error report'

    an anyone help me on this? is it likely i have a duff graphics card?! if so man that is unlucky RAM and graphics?! almost unbelievable......

    could the problem be a corrupt installation of windows?!

    thanks guys

    Hi Dudeman,

    Your minidump is inaccessible which is the symptom of faulty ram or PSU. Attach the more minidumps here.

    One of your minidumps has 3 bytes memory corruption. What do you think?

    BugCheck 1000000A, {9090ffff, 1c, 1, 804e781a}
    Probably caused by : memory_corruption

    Followup: memory_corruption
    An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
    interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
    caused by drivers using improper addresses.
    If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
    Arg1: 9090ffff, memory referenced
    Arg2: 0000001c, IRQL
    Arg3: 00000001, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    Arg4: 804e781a, address which referenced memory

    Debugging Details:
    WRITE_ADDRESS: 9090ffff

    804e781a a3ffff9090 mov [9090ffff],eax


    LAST_CONTROL_TRANSFER: from 804e1c1e to 804e781a
