    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your minidump crashes at ntkrnlmp.exe. This is a Windows nt kernel file. It has a bug check of C5.


    An attempt occurred to touch invalid memory at a process IRQL that is too high. This is almost always caused by drivers that have corrupted the system pool. If you’ve recently installed any new software, check to see if it’s properly installed; and check for updated drivers on the manufacturer’s web site.

    Update all your drivers. Particularly your mobo drivers.

    Please note. It is very difficult to be sure what your problem is from just 1 minidump. We normally require 5 or 6 minidumps. Therefore the above may, or may not be your actual culprit.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Thx. i know i only attached one dmp file, sorry but just reinst soo there where no other.

    about the drivers, since i´am running media center i havnt installed chipset drivers because i thought that the windows drivers where good enough. only installed ati and sound driver. But could that be the problem. isnt the microsoft drivers good enough.

    You should deffinitely install you mobo drivers. Get the latest drivers from your mobo manufacturers website.

    It shouldn`t matter that you`re using Windows media centre.

    If you want to read minidumps. Take a look at this short tutorial HERE

    In the bugcheck code. It does say to check any new software. Since you installed WOW. It might have something to do with that. Check the games manufacturers website, and see if there are any patches available.
