Hello,

For the past month or so I've been getting totally random BSODs. Some have been IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. Last week I thought I fixed the problem because I found out one of my 1 GB memory sticks went bad. So, I RMA'd the stick and got a new one. I'm using the new stick but just today I got another BSOD, I forgot what the error was.

I will test the new memory later tonight to make sure that isn't bad.

I hope it is just software and not hardware. I think I really should reinstall Windows because I downloaded a lot of programs over the past eight months since my last reinstall. I know I've foolishly downloaded some pretty crappy software a few times. I've included my latest minidump. If anyone can find out more with my minidump I would appreciate it. Thank you.

EDIT:
I also included my DxDiag.txt if that is any help. And I also added another ZIP with all my minidumps.

I'll be checking out your minidump file when I get home, unless anybody else beats me to it.

Thank you. I also want to say that I ran memtest this morning for 11 hours which was 16 passes with no errors. I've backed up most of my files and plan to do a reformat sometime soon.


Also want to say that these BSODs seemed to have started about a month ago when I swapped out my DVD-RW drive with an older CD-ROM drive because I wanted to copy a music CD that my DVD drive wouldn't copy. After I copied the CD I put DVD-RW drive back and removed the CD-ROM drive. I don't know if that is the cause of my problem but it was weird that right after I did that I started getting random BSODs.


Thanks again for any help you can give.
