    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    1 minidump is not enough to be able to diagnose your problem.

    For reference only.

    Your minidump crashes at ntoskrnl.exe. This is the Windows boot up kernel file. it has a bugcheck of D1.


    The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    If that doesn`t help. Zip 5 or 6 of your latest minidumps together and attach them here.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    hi again

    i downloaded and created an image of memtest86 Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (not memphis sorry). i unzip it and burn in to a cd. but it does nothing. i made my cdrom as first boot. im testing it in my other pc working well and im trying to test its memory. Did i miss anything.

    Once you`ve downloaded Memtest86+ extract it once only, burn the resulting file as an image. Read the instructions of whatever burning software you use, on how to burn an iso image.

    Your minidumps crash with the following errors.

    1 crashes at Ntfs.sys. This is the Windows file system driver. It has a bugcheck or 24.

    2 crash at SYMEVENT.SYS. This is your symantec/Norton security product. They have bugchecks of C5 and 0A.

    1 crashes at fetnd5bv.sys This the NDIS 5.0 miniport fast ethernet driver. It has a bugcheck of D1.

    1 crashes with memory corruption(MEMORY_CORRUPTION_LARGE) Faulty ram??. It has a bugcheck of 8E.

    1 crashes at ntoskrnl.exe. Windows bootup kernel. It has a bugcheck of D1.

    Update all the your drivers, including your chipset drivers. Test your ram/hard driver/page file.

    Check that your psu is putting out enough power for your system.

    Look HERE for the meaning of your bugcheckl codes.

    Regards Howard :)

    Your minidump crashes with memory corruption. It also references Firefox.exe as the owning process. It has a bugcheck of 4E.

    0x0000004E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT

    This indicates that the memory management Page File Number list is corrupted. Can be caused by corrupt physical RAM, or by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists.

    Check for any updates for Firefox. Test your ram with the memtest86+ programme.

    Regards Howard :)
