Windows 7: Desktop Window Manager and BSOD's

19 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium

Ok, I must be an idiot. I cannot seem to get memtest to burn to a CD that will boot. I downloaded the version that will work for a machine with 4 gigs of memroy, I then unzip that into a folder on my desktop, and then burn those files to the CD.

That CD will not boot. I have tried this 3 times, so what am I doing wrong?

memtest shows errors

I ran memtest86 last night for about 10 hours, and it eventually seemed to get stuck on test #6 with many errors. In fact, the program would not stop when I hit the escape key and I had to hard boot the machine.

How do I tell you the results of the memtest? The spot that shows Errors per memory slot said 0 for all slots, but under Test Errors it said 32,767 errors on the Test 6 line.

Also, I have attached the latest dmp files.

Thanks for any help.

Shameless Bump

Anyone who can look at my dumps? I also could use some help understanding what the memtest86 screen said.

Desktop Window Manager is disabled
I updated the driver for my PCI-e video card and it worked good, but got a message that said my "Desktop Window Manager is disabled". What does that mean and should I have it enabled? Thanks.
