Keeps crashing

Hi All,
I have a system with AMD 2800xp cpu, 512 mb ram, 80gig hard drive running
windows xp pro and just recently it's started crashing and/or freezing
without any warning screens or messages.

It seems to do it mostly when playing games such as the bowling one with XP
plus, but can also do it when doing a virus scan. Apart from this it seems
to run ok.

Any ideas??

Cheers

James Forbes

Go to Control Panel / System / Advanced tab.
Under 'Startup and Recovery' press 'Settings'.
Under 'System Failure' uncheck 'Automatically restart'.
No, in the event of a failure, your system will
not automatically reboot, and you should get
an error message; you can also check your
Event Viewer log ( Start / Run / eventvwr.msc )

If this doesn't help, then check for overheating
and/or bad RAM.

Hi Mike,
Tried your suggestion and the error message was as follows (as is probably
no help at all!):

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_ AREA
***STOP: 0X00000050 (OXF44F2FEC, 0X00000000,) these are repeated twice.

Does this mean anything to you ??

Jim

google > memtest86

download and do a full scan, then post the results here

also, are you using any non-certified drivers?

This is most likely a driver or system service fault.
See:

Stop 0x00000050 or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
