    I have been receiving seemingly random BSOD crashes. I get:

    STOP: 0x00000050 (0xE62B8BFC, 0x00000000, 0x8045F843, 0x00000002)
    PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED _AREA
    *** Address 8045F843 base at 80400000, DateStamp 41773335 ntoskrnl.exe
    Beginning dump of physical memory
    Physical memory complete. Contact your system administrator or technical support group

    I have removed any software/hardware that was added around the time the crashes started.
    I've defragged- hard drives and pagefiles. I've run spyware and adaware removers. I've done memory tests. I've set my pagefiles to zero, restarted, then set them to the recommended values...
    I've dusted the computer, and moved my one piece of RAM to the other slot.
    The crash does not occur when the computer is idle- only when I am using it. The crash does not seem to be linked to any specific programs I run, for I have ran different combos of programs, as well as no programs at all when the crash occurs.
    My startup programs are:
    atwtusb.exe beta
    s3apphk.exe
    mobsync.exe
    vptray.exe
    adobe gamme loader.exe
    ultramon.exe

    I am running win2k SP4 on a Compaq Presario 7360.
    To install 2k I had to install 98SE first and then add 2k. I don't know why the 2k boot disks do not work, but that's a whole different issue.
    I have no little excalmation point icons in my device manager.
    I really don't know what could be causing the crash... any help in determining what the culprit is is greatly appreciated.

    If I missed any info please tell me and I'll gladly add it if I can.
