  1. Recently I had some random crashing resulting in a bsod and having a dump of phisical memory. it happens all the time, here is the error stuff I get when i turn back on.
    im not sure if that means anything. i brought it back into bestbuy where i got it and they said something about my visual drive, and for some reason my cd burning was disabled or something. it was a while ago so i don't remember exactly.

    i just got rid of deamon tools (visual drive), and i'll report back if im still crashing. ill also report back if it stops.

    and i don't think this'll matter, but this computer was crashing a while ago, so i increased the paging file, didn't stop anything, but its now at 2 gb i think, would it matter if i decreased it.

    i got rid of deamon tools, and it crashed around 20 minutes later, then on a restart it crashed again. i tried one last time, and it asked me what i wanted to do, start in safe mode, start normally, system restore, i chose normal start and it worked. and here i am

    i removed a program called pulse by project dolphin, im hoping that'll do something

    i decided that if it does it again ill see if i have any additional ram (im using a laptop) and take that out.

    attached all my recent minidumps

    just so everybody knows, i went "start", "run..." and did "chkdsk". I haven't had a crash since. I'll report back if i do though.

    when i did the chkdsk it deleted a bunch of files, like "cookies.txt" and some other stuff, around 10 files. I'd also like somebody to tell me what my minidumps are and the problems, just to make sure that I actually did the right thing.

    nope, still crashing. i think it may be due to overheating. i left it alone to do a system defrag for about 2 hours and it was fine, but as soon as i started using the internet, and other programs, it started crashing. Also, i can't boot right up after a crash, i have to wait for a while. if i try to start it up, then i just get the blue screen again. i need those minidumps asap, that way the people at best buy can try to help me out.

    oh, this is nice. ill try it out and see if i find anything. but it would still be nice for people to tell me what my minidumps are, just to make sure i find everything before i take it into bestbuy to get it fixed.

    ok, i brought it into best buy. last time this was happening they couldn't find anything, so im going to assume that they won't find anything this time. so i still need my minidumps checked.

    Hardware problem


    It is hardware problem. From the stack trace of the minidump, probably it is AMD CPU L2 cache memory,r overheat or inadeuate power supply.

    thanks a lot. i just got it from bestbuy recently (30 mins ago) and they said that it was my HD, the was something wrong with one of my segments or something (it started with an 's'), so they fixed the hard drive without having to replace it.

    Well, thanks a lot anyways.
