Hi ArmenMM.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
  • Double click to open it.
  • Click this button only:
  • If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus and the keyboard driver.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
Let us know the results.

Lol, questions are always welcome :)
  • There is nothing very useful in the crash dump, that is ... the code. Before going to our next stages, we are trying to take the environment into shape, and these two steps you have followed are th very initial of that attempt.
  • No, dont check anything back. They need not to auto start at all. If you want to use them, call them from Start> All programs.
You say you still face the problem, even after cleaning startup?

How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.
If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

How many hours will take Memtest and is there any way it can damage my computer in any way?
The test will launch in the morning anyways

I believe that your RAM is not enough for running 64 bit Ultimate. With 2 GB you should run 32 bit home premium; or 32 bit home basic; and nothing higher. And that may be the cause for the cold boot BSOD, apparently.

Still I am asking for some expert opinion here.

Usually memtest needs to run for at least 7-8 passes. An overnight run will be enough for your RAM volume.

And Memtest will not anyhow harm/damage your computer.

The expert opinions will come shortly. You run memtest in between.

The OP ram is set at 1.8v (as per Speccy). I can't verify if that is correct because I can't find the specs for ram that old. My old Kingston ram voltage specs is 1.8v.
The OP only has one stick of ram but there is 2 ram slots.
With that motherboard the OP is running Single channel on a motherboard that can use Dual channel. To use Dual channel one must use both memory slot on the motherboard.
Now to get down to a little honesty. Their isn't much one can do with that system because of it's age.
If it was mine and I was trying to get it alive all I would do is install 2 matching sticks of ram that are designed for that motherboard and pray. Max. ram for this board is 4 gigs. Old ram sometimes comes with a premium price.
Hope this helps Arc.

My 2 cents Arc the OP should or could try Tradesman at the G Skill forum he is a whizz with memory not that we do not have our own people but that is just about all he does.
