How does Memtest work? I did what you said, and ran it.. A bunch or errors came up, to be more precise; Around 35000 errors, but it did pass.. Could you please explain?

Memtest stores specific data in each memory address and reads it back. if what it reads isnt what it wrote it is an error. If you have 35 errors your memory is bad. with 35,000 there is a real problem

Im back again-.o

Cant seem to get the DB3G.sys removed even after uninstalling the Razer Diamondback 3G Drivers. Even though i download and install the latest drivers, this file stays dated: Mon Nov 01.33.11 2005
Any safe way to remove this?

Any suggestions/help appreciated!


Also another question; Can a defect RAM unit interfere with/corrupt files during program installations?

Read trough a few other threads which suggested renaming files from .sys to .bak and i tried renaming the DB3G.sys files to DB3G.bak. There was a total of 4 files, but i was only able to two of them. The other two required a permission from SYSTEM.

So i need somekinda confirmation from someone who know how to remove/disable these files as they where ponted out to be a possible cause of the BSOD's i've been having.

Sorry for asking too much xD

Which files are you have trouble renaming? You don't want to rename a Microsoft system driver.

The driver im trying to rename "DB3G.sys" is as far as i know a Razer Diamondback 3G Mouse Driver. Atleast it is listed as one at: http://www.carrona.org/dvrref.html#DB3G.sys

*Edit* The files i were unable to rename was located in "C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\db3g.inf_amd64_neutral_c6f2258eaa1b0efb" and "C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\Temp\{27bc47d4-8c9c-4306-1175-7138d6f2c234}"

Follow Ttran's suggestion to take ownership of that file. Alternately, you might be able to rename it from the safe mode.

Alright, i'll try that.

*Edit* Neither taking ownership or trying to rename in safe mode would let me rename the files. However, i found out that these files are included with the latest drivers available for this mouse, so i suppose they cause no harm. --

Could any of you answer this for me aswell? That is if you know of course.

Once again, I really appreciate all the help!
