Looks like no luck... Ran well for a little while, but I just BSOD'd with the 'MEMORY_MANAGEMENT' error, then as soon as I logged into the computer again it BSOD'd with 'PFN_LIST_CORRUPT'

Hi Slash12a,

One of my colleagues much wiser than I thinks that the symptoms of your machine suggest strongly that your RAM is going bad.

Way to find out would be to try removing one stick of RAM at a time to see if the problem keeps happening.

That's kind of what I'm thinking at this point as well. My only other thought is that when I found out I had to update my BIOS in order to use all my ram it somehow didn't play nice with everything else... I can try rotating out sticks of ram though.

It will allow us to discount RAM failure if it doesn't show up anything. :)

I started swapping them out, before I realized that it'd take forever waiting a day or two for each BSOD. So I started swapping out RAM and running memory checks until it came up as a pass instead of failing with a Memory Compare Error. I got it to pass eventually with one stick out. I'm just curious if the slot could be the problem of if it's just the RAM, because I kept all the positions the same (It's triple channel RAM). I'm currently running on two sticks and seeing if anything happens.

I will be interested to see if things improve with it out.

I think this one does need to be taken to the tech section. Well outside my expertise. :P

I think here would be the place to open a new topic about the memory and what effect slots might or might not have. Also the fact that it's triple channel RAM... might have chipset implications.

I've been running on 2 sticks of RAM for a couple days now and haven't had a game crash or blue screen. The only problem is that my NonPaged pool is still getting really high for no reason, so I'm going to make a post asking about it in the forum you suggested now. I still have to test the slots, but it looks like either that stick of ram or the slot is what was causing all the BSODs at least.

I'd say that proves my colleague right about the RAM but as you say... other things going on.

I will follow your progress with interest.

Meantime I will leave this topic open for a day or two and then close.

Best of luck. :)

Looks like I spoke too soon... Computer just BSOD'd again with an error that's happened before when running with a stick on that slot, but on the other hand the memtest with this memory passed just fine. I now have no idea if it's my motherboard. I think I'll have to swap the stick I took out and put it in the previous 'Non-BSOD' position and see how that works to find out... I already ordered new RAM though, so hopefully it's not the motherboard...

Hello Slash12a,

Let's see what this turns up:

Please download Event Viewer by Vino Rosso and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click VEW.exe
  • Under 'Select log to query', Check the System box
  • Under 'Select type to list', Check Error & Warning boxes
  • Under Number or date of Events > 'Number of events' Type 20 in the 1 to 20 box
  • Click the Run button.
Notepad will open with a log. Please post the log back here.

Hello Slash12a,

As you know this is really outside my area of expertise but I do see this in this.

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Launch permission for the COM Server application


Seems there may be an adjustment to permission settings required.

I have found this link which tells you how to access the Component Services administrative tool.

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/snap_comp_exp.mspx?mfr=true


Maybe that will be of some help.

Interesting. I'm not entirely sure what that is, but it looks like it might be related to the blue screens. After a bit of online research I found a tutorial related to my specific error found here: http://www.itexperie...8-a06ad6d8b4d1/

I added permission for my system from that tutorial. Maybe that'll help things.

New RAM came today, I'll see how it runs. I've also done some research and found out that the nonpaged memory leak might be a conflict with McAfee and Windows that McAfee is apparently ignoring. So if the new RAM doesn't make a change I'll uninstall McAfee and see what happens.
