  1. I followed all the steps for checking for dust/memory/hard drive. Ran memtest with no problems and yet i'm still getting this blue screen right windows almost finishes loading. I am boot into Safe Mode with no problem, but still can't manage to get into windows.

    Facts about the Error:
    1) The error occured at random and I had not installed any new hardware/software.
    2) I used an Image I had of my C: from August 2006 and i am still getting the error.
    3) Tried Different Hard Drives/Memory Sticks, but error still remains.

    System I am Running
    Athlon 64 X2 4400+
    2 Gigs of Ram
    2 320 Gig Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM
    2 300 Gig Western Digital 7200 RPM
    Asus A8N-SLI Premium
    XFX 7800 GT
    Creative Audigy 2 ZS

    My conclusion is that the problem is hardware oriented, but i cannot determine which component it is. the Address Calls are

    Stop: 0x00000050 (0xFFFFFFE8, 0x00000001, 0x805255B4, 0x00000000)

    Unfortunately I do not have anyone else I know who uses AMD or has a PCIe slot I can test my components are.

    Included is my latest Core Dump. Thanks for anyone who helps! :)

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your minidump crashes at ScanDrv.SYS. I believe this is the driver for your scanner.

    Try uninstalling and reinstalling your scanner and it`s drivers, also check for any updated drivers.. See if that helps.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    In that case, locate the ScanDrv.SYS file and temporarily move it to another location. See if that solves your problem.

    Let me know the filepath to the file.

    Regards Howard :)

    That`s good news.

    Keep hold of that file for a week or two, if you have no further problems, delete it.

    Regards Howard :)
