I have been recieving this for a while so i decided to try to combat it. I first bought a new hdd for backup and 512 more of ram. I then updated my bios. I then formatted and reinstalled, i then clear dust from my ram slots. I thought i had solved the problem as before i did all this i was failing in a memory test - memtest86. If passed so i thought.... sorted. Now a few nights later it has done it again. Wot can i do. I have an ASUSa7v333, 1024 ddrrampc2700 333mhz, athlon xp2100+, 350 watt psu, geforce 4 ti4600. Please help me.

- boot up in safe mode
- delete the folder "WER1.tmp.dir00" of all the user on your computer
- delete all in c:\windows\minidump- go to the DOS prompt and write "chkdsk /f" it will probably ask for doing the scan on the next bootup, select "yes"
- then reboot
it solve the problem for me (for now...)

So then you have a GF4 Ti-4600, a gig of DDR and an XP 2100+ running on a 350W PSU? is it a generic PSU cos if it is it will be more likely be less than a 200W PSU, nearly all PSUs are rated at there maximum unstainable ratings (a bit like Alba getting 300W per channel out of a 60 quid stereo)

It may well not be your problem but it doesnt hurt to look in to it.

XP has a dump (so to speak LOL) whenever it recieves a stop error.
