Hi FourQ,FourQ said:I'm getting BSOD constantly, sometimes when my is idle, but most of them when i'm playing games, even old ones, like SimCopter.
I got PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGE AREA and DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL.
I've attached my 8 latest minidumps.

it looks like you're the guy around here, so if you wouldn't mind, i'm having many of the same symptoms as everyone else - BSOD with either ntfs.sys errors or irql_not_less_or_equal errors - and i think i'm narrowing it down to faulty ram, but i thought i'd leave that up to you. i've attached my minidump zips.

memtest passed my ram 9 times with no errors. i tried the XP repair install... and right after i got to the desktop, we had our good friend BSOD!!! yarrhhh!! interesting thing is, TWICE after it crashed, windows online crash analysis asked for me to send a kernel dump for more information... hmmm...
i've seen posts in other forums where the power supply might have been the problem... not in this case. (har har... case... never mind.) i DID have a generic 600w (which came with my 40 dollar e-bay case) so it probably was not that high class, but i've got an antec 500w supply in there and i can't tell the difference... it's a little quieter, maybe.
i posted this earlier, but i'll post it again so you all can see what i've got, and see if there's any conflicts...
-Athlon XP 2800+ (i'm assuming barton core) w/ included heatsink
-ABIT KV7-V motherboard (via kt600 chipset)
-1 GB Corsair Valueselect DDR Dual-Channel (2x512 MB)
-120 GB Samsung HDD/80 GB Seagate HDD (both SATA, not running a RAID currently; had it on RAID 1 on first XP install)
-Visiontek ATI Radeon 9250 AGP (128 MB)
-M-Audio Delta 24/96 PCI soundcard (currently not installed, was installed during original XP install)
-Dynex 52X CD-ROM

not working... this is sucky... i'm attaching more minidumps...
