Still no problems except that Internet exlorer 7 shuts down when I am trying to open a new tab. Now I started patching the game and whenever it reaches 90%, BSOD again ! I tried it 3 times including a fresh install of the game but BSOD on each occasion. My patch is NOT corrupt. I will test another game tomorrow. I dont have anti virus installed and only just installed Whocrashed to see the report. It says, SYSTEM_EXCEPTION_THREAD or something like that. Here is my only dump file .

P.S Thank you for helping me so far
You are going to have to start from scratch in the diagnostics. Btw, who crashed and Blue screen view often mis-diagnosing the problem (IMHO) by choosing an OS file if they cant find the underlying cause

Most recent crash is inconclusive.

So, should I do a RAM test using memtest then ?

Oh, I got BSOD again while surfing the net but I think its caused by IE7.

Here is that minidump.

Not IE.

Btw you dont have vista SP's installed and you should do that first.

Sorry but I dont have Vista SP 1 or 2 or anything else. None of my friends or relatives have that and I dont have money either. I will test Need for Speed Hot Pursuit tonight to see if I get any BSOD. At the moment, it seems that BC2 updater might have problems.

"You are going to have to start from scratch in the diagnostics", what do you mean by that ?

Should I run memtest to test my two RAMs individually for 12 hours ?

Settle the software first. If you are going to stay on vista you really, really need the SP updates.

All right, I was playing Hot Pursuit and after about 15 minutes, BSOD yet again. That confirms that there are no problems with BC2 but it also confirms that there arent any issues with my graphics card or hard disk. However, I think that RAM is most likely to be the reason for all this chaos. I am suspecting the kingston RAM to be the issue but I will test both my RAMs using memtest. Any suggestions ?

Here is my latest dump file

The most recent crash was related to rasacd.sys. In order to fix it you are going to need to update to SP-1.

This time, I removed my Kingston RAM and kept the iBall RAM going. I started Hot Pursuit. I played the game for about 20 minutes and again BSOD, this time relating to directx graphics. Here is the minidump.

I think I should become a computer detective now after my recent findings . Well, I removed my iBall RAM and put my old kingston RAM. My system started fine. I started Hot Pursuit and played for 45 minutes at a stretch with only a few frame drops. I quit the game and still everything is fine. I installed IE8 after installing required updates and now my IE is no longer crashing. So, is my iBall RAM the problem ? I will find it out tomorrow when I run the memtest. Even Bad Company 2 ran well and most importantly, I did not get BSOD while patching it. Zigzag sir, what are your thoughts ? (I am calling you sir because judging by your profile remarks, you should be aged above 30 and I am only 17)

AGAIN, You need to update to SP-2.

When you have finished that I will be happy to continue to help you. If you cant update you would be better off in win 7 at least there you dont need to update.

Short of that you are going to keep having problems in you headlong rush to play games.
