  1. Hi There,

    This forum was very helpful to me a few months ago, when dealing with a different problem. I hope you guys will be able to help me with this one.

    My friend has been experiencing various BSOD's, and gave me a bunch of his dumps to look at. I'm attaching those, and I hope someone will be able to point me in the right direction.

    The system is ECS KM400-M2 M/B with AMD Sempron 2200+ CPU, 768MB RAM with 80GB WD Hard drive and pretty recent load of Windows XP Home SP2.

    Thanks in advance,

    You've got lots of memory corruption. Run Memtest.

    You've also got some spyware - DSSAGENT.EXE.

    Thanks so much for the response, I knew this was the place to come! :)

    I came across that DSSAGENT, but the funny thing is that this computer isn't connected to the 'net.
    I will look into your suggestions, and I appreciate your time.

    MemTest Returned Nothing

    Hello again,

    I followed peterdiva's advice and ran MemTest. I ran the first 256MB DIMM for about 14 passes and then 512MB for 33 passes. Neither returned any errors, so I am running them together.

    Prior to running the MemTest I sprayed both the memory and the slots with some air, hoping to clean out any dust that might have been present.

    I am attaching some additional dumps from previous errors, dating back earlier than the ones that I had originally attached.

    I'd appreciate any further advice.

    Many Thanks,
