Blue screen of death!

  noobtype 11:44 05 Jul 2009


Recently my PC has been shutting itself down and going to the blue screen, with this message:

0x0000a 0x0000c 0x00001b 0x000000 0x8223cbc2

Then it does a memory dump and restarts. I just updated the graphics card driver and it still happens (nvidia 8800gt)

Is it from over heating as the case feels pretty hot even though i have the side panel off.

Any ideas?

Possibly, you may need an extra fan there, but also you may have overloaded the kernel.

But it's only started recently and i havent changed anything. It also says IRQL less or not equal.

ok now when it crashes it says: dxgkrnl.sys - Page fault in non paged area.

i dont know what that means but it can't be good

Could be faulty ram. Get someone to download the memtest iso file and burn to disc. Run a teast on your PC. click here

I meat test not 'teast'!

Also if the case feels 'hot' make sure all the fans are spinning and clean out any dust build up carefully.
