These crashes are all over the place and I'm quite confident that your machine is suffering from underlying hardware issues.

As a suggestion, make sure that nothing is over-clocked or under-cooled, update your BIOS, and run some memory diagnostics.

There is no point going into in-depth software troubleshooting while the hardware is questionable.

I see.

Nothing is OC'ed and since I had these crashes I bought a Zalman cooler for my P4 (Jeez... a good one)

I also replaced the memory to a new one (2GB). Where can I find a good memory test program?

Thank you.

Even if the problem is not heat-related, a good cooler is never a waste

Windows has a built-in utility memory diagnostics utility - MDSCHED. There are many 3rd-party ones, including the very popular MEMTEST. You should probably give both a go. Bad or mismatched RAM is the most likely cause.

No problem at all. I know it can be very frustrating to be faced with this sort of issue. Unfortunately, minidumps are not a good way to pinpoint the exact nature of any underlying hardware defect. They only suggest that there is a problem, but not which component is the cause.

Good luck with it!

Hi again,

Just finished the windows memory test. Guess what... IT IS THE MEMORY.
I am going back to the store where I bought these memories and going to mess their place. So thank you very much and goodbye.
