Periodic BSOD (0x10000050)
I've been getting Blue Screens lately, once or twice per day. I tried searching for the codes but that didn't help much. The machine reboots when it occurs and I can't read the stop code directly, but,

From event viewer:

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x10000050 (0xb09fc5a4, 0x00000000, 0xb1765616, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini030511-03.dmp.

I've attatched one of the dumps (there are a few, but on the event viewer the codes are all the same).

It seems to happen around events with uTorrent (soon after starting/closing), but that's a retrospective analysis which could be completely wrong. Also, a few months back, this machine suffered a BSOD from which it couldn't recover till I reformatted the HDD and fresh installed (it wouldn't boot). I'm using the same primary HDD from then, but it has been working fine since the reinstall, until now.

Any idea what the problem is? Thanks.

Incomplete dump file. Check your RAM first then run chkdsk /r on the drive and see if the results show any bad clusters.

MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
Roadkil's RAM Test
Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)

If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

If you are running Vista, tap F8 on boot and choose the memory diagnostic, or if you can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:


Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.
