0x50 errors are typically due to faulty memory.

Click this for a guide to using Memtest



Click this to download Memtest

Run it overnight if possible

You could also run the Microsoft Memory http://oca.microsoft.../en/windiag.asp

ok running one of the memory tests now. can you save a copy of a report or do a print screen of the end of the test? so i can show the guys who put this hunk of junk together. And also show you?

The Test already says:

Tst Pass Failing Address Good Bad ErrBits Count Clean
2 0 000dfeee668-3582MB 0000000 0000001 0000001 145

1 1 000dfeee668-3582MB dfeee668 dfeee669 0000001 56


Does this indicate my RAM is faulty?

Short answer is yes. Here is an explanation of the results.

With Memtest86 the Report is accumulated on-screen while the test is scanning with various patterns.
A Pass % (percentage of Test completed) keeps a progress tally of any single test Run.
Each portion of a Test Run is called a "Pass". The term "Pass" is misleading, in that people could think it means "pass" as in a passing score.
But it actually means a "pass" like the full swing of a digital photo copy scanner swinging across the page.

Then below that Pass percentage is the progress of the specific pattern test
Below that is Testing: which shows the amount of RAM being Tested
Below that is a description of the Test Pattern being "passed" during that portion of the test.
For instance moving "inversions" "1" and "0", Then 8 bit pattern inversions, then on and on....
In pattern fefefefefe , or 45a2d44d, fffffffed, 00000020, etc

Below that information is the Results Report
Time, - Cached(RAM) - RsvdMem - MemMap - Cache on/off - ECC - Test Pass - - Errors - Ecc Errs

The critical indicator is the (green) Errors item
(on the actual test screen it is not highlighted in green and I am just using the highlight to point you at the correct item)

We won't often see any results in the ECC Errs section since this is for ECC RAM which is most often used in Servers requiring Error Correction Chip RAM. (ECC RAM stick look the same as non-ecc, but have an additional small chip for error correction) non-ecc = 8x64, ECC = 8x64 plus one small additional chip
___________________________________________________

"Any" number other than Zero under Errors constitutes a FAILURE

Ordinarily the number will be a quite LARGE number, but a smaller number (constituting a Random Sequence Error) can be just as deadly to the accurate performance of a machine as a steady failure.
_____________________________________________________

The above information is "just how I have come to understand" MemTest86 results and does not constitute any sort of authoritative wisdom.

MemTest86 has quite a good Readme.txt that comes with the zipped download and as I recall also provides additional research links. It would be well to read it.
_____________________________________________________

At the very Bottom of the MemTest86 screen is the Navigation Bar

(ESC)exit ( C ) configuration (sp) scroll_lock (cr)scroll_unlock

To EXIT memtest86 - press - ESC
(No need to turn off the machine, it will simply proceed to attempt to boot into Windows)

To configure other information for viewing - press - C

To get out-of the "other information" popup, just hit "space bar"

Hope this helps.

I had the same exact problem and determined it was one of my sticks of RAM. I have to use identical RAM for slots 1+3, and 2+4. I had one mismatched and everything but Crysis liked it. I guess if someone had a bad stick they would have the same issue.
