    computer specs :
    P4 3.2
    Ati x1650 graphic card
    1gb ram
    180g HD
    OS : Windows XP professional SP 2

    i've posted the latest dump i got of bug check 0x1000000a (0x0000001c, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x80540545).

    I would appreciate some help because i dont know what to do.
    Thanks :).

    0xA error usually relates to hardware/memory related issues, sometimes however, it can be drivers as well.

    In your case, as you only provided one minidump for analysis (it would be helpful if you have more), it points to windows process of WoW (i.e. windows on windows) you were probably running some 16bit app while that crash/memory corruption instance happened.

    Anyway, for now I'll advise you to run memtest, let it run for the whole night (e.g. 10-12 passes) so it has good chance of finding any errors.
