    I'm running Windows XP SP3 Pro 5.01
    Pentium 4 Processor 3.6 GHz
    2GB RAM DDR2
    Abit I-N73V Mainboard
    Chipset: nVidia GeForce 7050
    Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 7050/NVIDIA nForce 610i
    Drive: 250 GB Western Digital
    Memory: DDR2-SDRAM PC2-5300 (333 MHz) - [DDR2-666]



    I have been getting repeated blue screens and would like some help diagnosing the problem

    After reading the forums I have done the following:

    Ran Memcheck86 several hours and passed
    Reninstalled windows (fresh install)
    Updated drivers for both of my usb soundcards

    The BSODs happen at random and various times; at startup, during video, audio playback,etc.

    For example, today when I started the computer it kept shutting off and wouldnt stay on longer

    than 2 seconds. Then eventually it stayed on, but has crashed several more times since then.

    Some other things:
    -Recently my Dvd drive has been disapearing off and on lately (it's showing at the moment,
    though).
    -Also my windows updates have been failing lately as well. Even though the BSODs were occuring way before that, it's still odd.

    I've attached the mini dump files as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Hi thank you for the reply, it just happened again right now actually, here's the technical information:

    Stop 0x0000008E (0XC0000005, 0xBD20B33C, 0XB3423448, 0X00000000)

    ** Nv4_disp.dll Address BD20B33C

    Base at BD0l2000
    Datestamp 4B4C08C5


    I just googled it and it looks like it could be a ram issue? I've had different things come up on the blue screen before too. I think an error saying "Usbport.sys" or something like that comes up sometimes too. Thanks in advance

    All those minidumps you posted are Probably caused by : nv4_disp.dll

    Does this PC have a Make and Model or was it built?

    The computer had a fresh copy of SP3 already installed on it when I brought it...
    The XP that I installed on the pc when I reformatted it is SP3 as well...Is it possible to remove SP3 when that was original version installed?

    Any help is appreciated...
