I have tried what i know so now im looking for some professional help.

Im been Getting What some call The Blue Screen Of Death

The Error is : ***STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x81746020,0x81746194,0x805F9F88)

I have no idea what this means. But i saw the words Dumping and then Memory so i new it was not good. So i opened up my computer to look at my RAM because last week i just bought a new stick of RAM and i thought that would be the case but everything is ok. Thats where i didnt know what to do next :) . It goes to this " Blue Screen Of Death " Everytime i leave my computer alone for more than like 15-20 minutes. Please if you know of this and how to fix i could really use help :). Thankyou Very Much

PS: Im sorry that the odds are youve gotten people with this problem many times before .. Also i found this and thought it would be appropriate for this problem.. hehe :tazz: :) :)

actually, that one is pretty rare...which leads me to think hardware

I'd do two things, run a memory tester
www.memtest.org

and run a hardware diagnostic test from your harddrive maker

I think your drive is dying, but it could be memory....

James, please do not PM people to ask for help on open issues. Ask in forum so people with similar problems can benefit

Go to
www.memtest.org

download either the ISO image and make a CD or download the Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win), extract it, put a floppy in the drive and click the install.bat

This will create a bootable floppy.

Leave floppy in the PC and reboot, then windows will start from the floppy and run the test. Let it run at least three passes. Report errors
