Start with the third page with the nforce memory controller and get everything on that page first then do all the rest after. Let me know once you are done with the 3rd page if anything gets better.

Installed 5 drivers from page 3 starting with nforce memory controller.
Rebooted and retested (Tetris test) after each of the 5 installs.
No change.

Not every install tells me to reboot, but I do anyway.

So that makes 2 plus 5 = 7 installs so far.

I assume I just continue doing all the rest in any order?

And let me ask this.. is it ok to install more than one at a time whether or not some require rebooting?
I ask because it would be a whole lot simpler to install them all so we can move onto more treatment(s).

But I can continue doing them one by one and booting after each - that way we can know which one makes the test - which would be nice to know.

You can install them as many at a time as you want. I agree when you have each installed or a set of them installed you should reboot to make sure. At least that way you will have a ideal which set hopefully resolves the issue for you. :thumbsup:

Refer to driverList01-04 as p01 - p04 and #1 - #5 on each page

1. installed/booted/tested p01 #1 - no change

2. installed/booted/tested p01 #2 - no change

3. installed p01 #5
installed p02 #1
installed p02 #2
installed p02 #3
installed p02 #4
booted and..
4. got Windows msg "System has recovered from a serious error. A log has been created. Please tell MS about this problem. We have created an error report" Then a prompt to Send or Cancel. I cancelled. I can send report/log.
5. Tried to connect to internet - got a 'server down' msg (709? not sure). Power cycled modem. No help.
6. Rebooted and again got "System has recovered etc.." msg and couldn't get rid of it.
7. And couldn't connect to internet
8. Figured maybe driver p02 #3, NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator, caused problems
9. Mounted driver CD that came with system, selected nForce chipset driver, sub-selected Ethernet driver (but not SM Bus nor Storage drivers)
10. Driver install begins then halts with a Stop Error crash..
11. Reboot.
12. And it came up without any error msgs
13. Tested Tetris - no change
14. Connect to internet and here we are.

Should I go ahead with the rest of the new driver installs starting with p2 #5, skip p3, p4 #1 - #5?
I'll wait to hear from you for awhile in case you have some suggestions.. let me know.
I figure if I install all the updates I can, then I can rerun the scan to see if there's anything still to update.

What do you think?

Yep get everything updated and that way we narrow down the variables as to what is causing the errors.
Just to check also can you do the following.

Download WhoCrashed from the link in my signature below
This program checks for any drivers which may have been causing your computer to crash....

Click on the file you just downloaded and run it.

Put a tick in Accept then click on Next
Put a tick in the Don't create a start menu folder then click Next
Put a tick in Create a Desktop Icon then click on Install and make sure there is a tick in Launch Whocrashed before clicking Finish
Click Analyze
It will want to download the Debugger and install it Say Yes
WhoCrashed will create report but you have to scroll down to see it
Copy and paste it into your next reply

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

49 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. Only 15 are included in this report. 2 third party drivers have been identified to be causing system crashes on your computer. It is strongly suggested that you check for updates for these drivers on their company websites. Click on the links below to search with Google for updates for these drivers:

nvsnpu.sys (NVIDIA Networking Soft-NPU Driver., NVIDIA Corporation)

nvnrm.sys (NVIDIA Network Resource Manager., NVIDIA Corporation)

If no updates for these drivers are available, try searching with Google on the names of these drivers in combination the errors that have been reported for these drivers and include the brand and model name of your computer as well in the query. This often yields interesting results from discussions from users who have been experiencing similar problems.


Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is actually responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

Strange they almost all indicate a video driver issue.
Tell you what run this again and see what comes up.

Go to

Start and then to Run
Type in Chkdsk /r Note the space between k and /
Click Enter ...It will probably ask if you want to do this on the next reboot...click Y
If the window doesn't shutdown on its own then reboot the system manually. On reboot the system will start the chkdsk operation
This one will take longer then chkdsk /f

Note... there are 5 stages...
It may appear to hang at a certain percent for a hour or more or even back up and go over the same area...this is normal...
DO NOT SHUT YOUR COMPUTER DOWN WHILE CHKDSK IS RUNNING OR YOU CAN HAVE SEVERE PROBLEMS
This can take several hours to complete.
When completed it will boot the system back into windows.

Reboot after your done running chkdsk /r...
then Go to Start...Run and type: eventvwr.msc press Enter
When Event Viewer opens, click on Applications... then scroll down to Winlogon and double-click on it. This is the log created after running Checkdisk...copy and paste the log back here


We will advise after studying the log.

Well it's not a hard drive issue.

If you have more than one RAM module installed, try starting computer with one RAM stick at a time.

NOTE Keep in mind, the manual check listed above is always superior to the software check, listed below. DO NOT proceed with memtest, if you can go with option A

B. If you have only one RAM stick installed...
...run memtest...


1. Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip). If you prefer to use the USB version then use this link USB KEY
2. Unzip downloaded /memtest86+-4.20.iso.zip file.
3. Inside, you'll find /memtest86+-4.20.iso file.
4. Download, and install ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/
5. Insert blank CD into your CD drive.
6. Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc
7. Click on Browse for a file... icon:

Posted Image

8. Locate memtest86+-4.20.iso file, and click Open button.
9. Click on ImgBurn green arrow to start burning bootable memtest86 CD:

Posted Image

10. Once the CD is created, boot from it, and memtest will automatically start to run. You may have to change the boot sequence in your BIOS to make it work right.

To change Boot Sequence in your BIOS

Reboot the system and at the first post screen (where it is counting up memory) start tapping the DEL button
This will enter you into the Bios\Cmos area.
Find the Advanced area and click Enter
Look for Boot Sequence or Boot Options and highlight that click Enter
Now highlight the first drive and follow the directions on the bottom of the screen on how to modify it and change it to CDrom.
Change the second drive to the C or Main Drive
Once that is done then click F10 to Save and Exit
You will prompted to enter Y to verify Save and Exit. Click Y and the system will now reboot with the new settings.


The running program will look something like this depending on the size and number of ram modules installed:


Posted Image

It's recommended to run 5-6 passes. Each pass contains very same 8 tests.

This will show the progress of the test. It can take a while. Be patient, or leave it running overnight.

Posted Image

The following image is the test results area:

The most important item here is the “errors” line. If you see ANY errors, even one, most likely, you have bad RAM.

I've got 4 sticks of 512KB for a total of 1.93GB

You wrote:

I'm a little confused - is "option A" = "try starting computer with one RAM stick at a time"?
I think that's what you mean.. but I don't see 'option A' anywhere.

Do you want me to boot with one stick at a time?
And what am I looking/testing for? Bad ram?
Please advise.

I'll be away from the machine for awhile..

Yes that is what it means exactly. I know it is a long process and may be counter productive since less memory will slow the OS down even more. I would suggest skipping the manual test and go straight to running memtest86 instead. If any of the memory is bad it will show in the test.

OK.. thanks, for clarifying.
For now I'll sleep on it and undertake Plan B tomorrow when I'm more alert
and less likely to blunder.

Thanks for staying with me on this.. much appreciated.

I need to tell you what's happening this morning..
1. on a boot but before windows has settled down I get the 'Windows Recovered from Serious Error' msg (WRSE)
2. then crash - Stop error.
3. while down, I notice my modem has TX on steady, so I power cycle it to normal lights, ie no RX and no TX, rest all ON.
4. reboot - and again WRSE, and crash, at about the same place as before, and I notice TX went on steady
5. I power off the modem and reboot.
6. Again WRSE but no crash. I leave WRSE on display, play Freecell once, the select Don't Send on WRSE
7. It stays up, so I power on the modem, and it comes up to normal lights
8. I connect (I use a PPPOE dialer to connect) and sign into GTG, and here I am.

If the modem is on when WRSE happens then it crashes, but when modem is off and WRSE happens it doesn't crash.

I'm worried that at some point I will not be able to connect to the internet and so be unable to reach you. Can I suggest that if you don't hear from me for an hour or two today that you give me a call,

If you've got any comment on this, please let me know.
I'll now try to prepare for the memory test.
