System Crashes

  cleggy621 13:18 07 Apr 2006

Suffering frequent system crashes, when running games or video related apps.

My system is asus AZN 266-VM motherboard, with on board graphics.

768Mb ram (512/256)

Athlon 2000 processor (1666mhz i think)

They are generally while running links 2003 mod1.06 (golf sim)

Sometimes it just resets back to windows, sometimes it reboots and sometimes i get the blue screen of death.

It can happen after 2 mins or 60 mins.

I think its a driver problem but i'm no expert.

Example BSD message

***STOP 0x0000000A (0xC35E0080, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x803A3B9C)

***ADDRESS 803A3B9C base at 803A1000 DATESTAMP 3e7a7338 - hal.dll

others end, ntoskrnl.exe, svchost.exe error, nv4mini.sys.

Ive updated my graphics drivers with no change.

I'm thinking, upgraded graphics card !

Any help appreciated.

Maybe reinstall your chipset driver and visit AMD site. Also see if you can increase the shared ram for graphics in bios.

Thanks for the response.

michelle c - ive reinstalled the original chipset drivers from the mobo disk, no luck.
My ram is at maximum shared in bios.

Should there be nvidia and amd chipset drivers?

recap - thanks but i can't decipher which driver seems to be causing the problems form the codes.

Is there a list anywhere ?

thanks again

hal's: Like APIs, HALs allow applications to be device-independent because they abstract information from such systems as caches, I/O buses and interrupts and use this data to give the software a way to interact with the specific requirements of the hardware on which it is running.

ntoskrnl.exe is a critical process in the boot-up cycle of your computer although should never appear in WinTasks whilst under normal circumstances

Svchost.exe is a generic host process name for services that are run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs). The Svchost.exe file is located in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder. At startup, Svchost.exe checks the services portion of the registry to construct a list of services that it needs to load. There can be multiple instances of Svchost.exe running at the same time.

nv4mini.sys, is usually related to a memoty problem.

Looking at all these errors I htink it may only be related to the game you are playing.
