    How to find and post your Minidump Files:

    My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

    It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip; if you only have one or two you don’t need to zip them, just attach as is. Please do us a favor and don’t Zip each one individually.

    With your dump codes there is a very strong possibility your issue is with bad RAM. Thus you'll need to run Memtest on your memory.

    See the link below and follow the instructions. There is a newer version than what is listed; use the newer. If you need to see what the Memtest screen looks like go to reply #21. The third screen is the Memtest screen.

    Step1 - Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes; the more Passes after 7 so much the better. The only exception is if you start getting errors before 7 Passes then you can skip to Step 2.

    There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

    If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

    Step 2 – Because of errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don’t need to run the test any further on that stick.


    * Get back to us with the results.

    We can't tell really help until diagnostic steps such as Memtest are run by you. You may or may not have corrupted memory but you need to run memtest as instructed in order to confirm whether or not this is the issue.

    If it is then the problem is easily remedied; if not we'll try something else.

    If you have more dump files other than what you posted then yes by all means attach them in your next post. If you have only one or twwo files please don't zip them; just attach as is. If you have 3 to 5 then go ahead and zip and attach.
