Windows 7: Various BlueScreen's when playing Minecraft or Intensive computing

Various BlueScreen's when playing Minecraft or Intensive computing

Hi,

First off I dont know where to post this as I have Windows Server 2008 R2 which is similar to windows 7 but If I were to go to Microsoft forums they would just tell me to call them which im not really looking to do. Also this seems to be a very active and knowledgeable forum so it seems like my best shot :P

Onto my issue:
I have a Windows Server that I host a variety of websites and other applications on. Lately I have been getting lots of BlueScreens with various error messages (See included dump files). After a few days of research I hear it could have to do with my RAM or ATI Radeon 4250.

I re-installed Windows Server and haven't had anymore BSOD's outside of more intensive computing (such as Minecraft (I run a server :P)). Anyway I dont think its the RAM now. As for the graphics I have updated the driver lots of times and tried all kinds of versions of it. I will not that I have added a "custom resolution" to the card using regedit for my new Acer LED monitor (S201HL). Im not sure if that could be the result of my problems.

As for my hardware... I custom build this computer.

Motherboard: M4A88TD-V EVO USB3
RAM: 16GB at 1.6volts
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4
GPU: Integrated ATI Radeon HD 2450 clocked at 700mhz

My keyboard and mouse are connected via a USB HUB on an USB Extender about 20 feet away from the computer. The monitor is also connected via a long VGA cable.

Heres a link to my Minidump files: Minidump.zip

Thanks for any help or advice!

Thanks, I did that and it seems to help. Not as many crashes. Now I believe im getting network related crashes. When I start my minecraft server or do stuff online I get bluescreens complaining about tcp and net files.

Heres more dumps: MoarDumps.zip

Thanks for your help!!

Turns out something is wrong with my RAM, it was a cheapo brand. Lucky I had my old 4x 2gb sticks. I put them in and no more crashing. So instead of 16gb I have 8. Im going to the store tommorow to exchange it. Hopefully the new ram will work.

Thanks!

It's possible. Even likely this will fix it.

Thank you Mitch!
