Had 2 BSOD's in the last month and a half. ( unfortunately threw out the paper on which i had written the first one on )
I had one just tonight, 15 minutes ago.
STOP Error 0x00000050 (0xFF3B1000,0x00000000,0x80598FCE,0x00000000)
Both BSOD's were related to having new hardware installed recently. However I can't see what that might be.
The two errors happened at totally different cases... The first one I was doing 8 things at once, buisness as usual, and it crashed when i tried to fiddle with my windows theme.
This time was trying to open an encrypted file using a program called Jetico Best Crypt.
The only new hardware installed recently was my LAN card. However, I used it without any problems over the christmas period. And I'm not sure if the first BSOD was after I installed the LAN card..
Besides, I installed the LAN card with the driver CD, had zero problems, not a peep from it.
The only other new piece of hardware that was added to this machine scince I purchased it is my second video card, a 10 year old ATI Mach 64 GX PCI (2MB Memory lol yes i know)
What I dont understand however, is that I've been using this second card for my dual-monitor setup for months now, scince early october, and my BSOD started only a month and a half ago.
The BSOD also say it might be because of faulty RAM. Can RAM sticks suddenly go bad, and start malfunctionning?
I'm a bit concerned... I dont like it when my comptuer starts crashing on me, I treat it with the highest respect..
I had dismissed the first BSOD, but now with a second one, questions are being raised.
Can it be the Graphics card, the LAN card, my ram going bad?
