I am having some nasty problems with this computer. I am constantly getting blue screens with all kinds of STOP errors….that is, when I’m actually lucky enough to boot to the desktop.

Here are several STOP errors I have gotten:

1. IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
STOP: 0x0000000A

2. STOP: 0x0000008E (I get these a lot)

3. PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
STOP: 0x00000050

4. CONFIG_INITIALIZATION_FAILED
STOP: 0x00000067

I have run “MEMTEST86”, and there were 2 or 3 ram modules that are supposedly faulty. So, I removed them and kept the good ram stick installed. There is still no difference in the errors…I have formatted and installed Windows XP 3 times and still no difference…I have even run a compatibility test (from the XP Pro SP2 installation disc) and there are no incompatibilities.

Here are the computer specs:
Windows XP Pro SP2
AMD ATHLON 950 MHz
ASUS K7V Motherboard
PC133 256MB RAM (used to be 576MB)
ATI 9200 SE video card
40 GB Samsung Hard Drive

rushin1nd Thanks for those links. I reseated the processor and now I don't get those errors anymore. The only problem now is the computer will freeze sometimes and the monitor will turn off. I have run memtest and supposedly all 3 of my RAM modules are faulty... not too sure how all 3 of them could all the sudden become faulty?

0x00000050

have you tried to run your antivirus program in safe mode

does your monitor go off in safe mode

The tower stays on, only the monitor shuts off like it's going to standby.

I haven't run antivirus in safe mode... I'll do that.

I have only been in safe mode once with this problem, and the monitor did stay on.

Ran antivirus in safe mode.... everything was normal. While in safe mode, I tested the machine for about 15 mins and no problems appeared, but who knows. I also made sure that the power options were all set to never. I am begining to think it's the motherboard and/or ram.
