Dump of Physical Memory... wtf! Analysis anyone?

  1. Okay, so I've been getting the blue screen which says, among other things: "Beginning dump of your physical memory." This does not seem good. I read that to pinpoint the problem causing the crash someone needs to analyze the .dmp files. I posted 5 of the 6 minidump files in C:\WINDOWS\Minidump . If anyone has time to look them over and offer an opinion it'd be much appreciated.

    Also, I'm running on an Asus G1 Laptop with Windows XP.

    Inside the 5 MiniDumps:

    BugCheck 10000050, {b4a42d68, 0, bac9975a, 0}
    Could not read faulting driver name
    Probably caused by : win32k.sys

    Strangely I don't know what cnxchv.sys is (there is no information on Google)
    Possible you may know. Do a search for this file, right click on it and check properties.
    Let me know

    In regards to the others:

    Looks as though you will need to update your audio card drivers
    And you may need to run Memtest on your drive

    Its a .sys file too. Probably corrupted.

    This makes me think you may need to go to Start->all programs->accesories->command prompt->type SFC /SCANNOW

    Make sure you are logged in as an administrator, for vista right click the command prompt icon and select run as administrator.

    cnxchv.sys did not show up when I searched all files and folders.
    i'm going to run the memtest and check audio drivers tonight--will post an update on whether or not the problem recurs.
