For about 2 weeks now my new computer has been crashing usually once a day with stop errors:
0x00000050 (0xd8e4ce38, 0x00000000, 0xf76fcf2a, 0x00000000)

0x1000008e (0xc0000005, 0xbf876bed, 0xa9e9a1b0, 0x00000000)

0x00000024 (0x001902f8, 0xaa15a5d8, 0xaa15a2d8, 0xf7706922)

0x1000008e (0xc0000005, 0x805368a0, 0xf7a4e7d0, 0x00000000)

0x1000008e (0xc0000005, 0x804ed3e0, 0xf7f11b04, 0x00000000)

0x0000000a (0x00000000, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x804eaa70)

0x0000000a (0x00000004, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x804dca98)

They are just a few of them. I was advised that the problem may be RAM. I have 2 512MB sticks of DDR3200 RAM installed and have tried removing each stick to try and identify the defective one but I still get the stop errors with either stick and I know that its unlikely that both sticks are faulty.

The errors began about a week after I bought it so i don't think its device drivers that are causing the problem because I haven't updated or changed any driver or added any new hardware for that matter.

Thanks in advance.

Good grief Charlie Brown
Two of those numbers get mentioned here but it is discussing XP setup. Seems to be pointing to bad ram. It could be an incompatability problem.

Try a memory tester from here. Look around for the free one.
Try running with 1 stick of RAM then try using the other.
This way you should be able to pinpoint the bad stick of RAM.

(provided they aren't both shot :eek: )
Does the density of your RAM match what the motherboard manufacturer specifies? Some newer motherboards don't play well with high-density RAM.


Thx for all the replies guys. I think the problem was the pagefile. I may have been corrupt. I tired disabling it yesterday and i haven't had a single crash.

Thx again.
This used to work for NT 2K etc. Not tried it on XP tho...

Prevent Windows from paging the executive portions of the
operating system to the pagefile on the hard disk. Open Regedit and enter the following>>

HKey Local Machine>System>Current Control Set>Control>Session Manager>Memory Management

Value= DisablePagingExecutive

Data Type= REG_DWORD

Data = 1

Then Reboot

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
