Computer crashes every time i burn/rip

I’m not sure if your situation is similar to these two but they may be of help to you :

im getting a new message now, instead of 8E on the end i get 50. Is this a different problem?

Go to the m$ support sites and use SEARCH.

theres nothing on the microsoft site that relates to this. when i send error report ms tells me that its an unknown driver problem

There is, all possible errorcodes are explained with solutions on their sites.

i think this may be it

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q315335

although why would this happen when i rip/burn?

CAUSE
This behavior may occur if one of the following conditions is true: • One or more of the random access memory (RAM) modules that are installed on your computer are faulty.
• The RAM configuration is incompatible with Windows XP.

:rolleyes:

ok so im guessing its the RAM then… i was thinking of getting some new RAM anyway…

im not a very techy person (as you may have guessed :)), so would this ram spec:

Description:

(Synchronous DRAM) DDR266 memory module.Works with all DDR-Motherboards and will work in Dual Channel. The components on this module include sixteen 64M x 8-bit (16M x 8-bit x 4 Bank / 133MHz, 7.5ns, CL2 Components) SDRAM in TSOP packages. This 184-pin DIMM uses gold contact fingers and requires +2.5V.

The electrical and mechanical specifications are as follows:

Advanced Features:

· Hynix 128M x 64-bit (Made with 64 X 8 JEDEC), CAS Latency 2 SDRAM

· True 266 Mhz CL 2.0 (Not under clock)

· VDD : 2.5V ± 0.2V, VDDQ : 2.5V ± 0.2V for DDR266

· Double-data-rate architecture; two data transfers per clock cycle

· Bidirectional data strobe [DQ] (x4,x8) & [L(U)DQS] (x16)

· Differential clock inputs(CK and CK)

· DLL aligns DQ and DQS transition with CK transition

· Programmable Read latency : DDR266/333(2.0 Clock), DDR400(3 Clock)

· Programmable Burst length (2, 4, 8)

· Programmable Burst type (sequential & interleave)

· Edge aligned data output, center aligned data input

· Auto & Self refresh, 7.8us refresh interval(8K/64ms refresh)

· Serial presence detect with EEPROM

· PCB : Height 1,250 (mil) & single (256, 512MB), double (1GB) sided

· SSTL_2 Interface

· 66pin TSOP II Pb-Free package

be supported on this motherboard:

http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pro_mbd_detail.php?UID=101

You’d need:

Main Memory

• Supports four two 168-pin unbuffered DIMM using four memory banks.
• Supports a maximum memory size of 1GB (32M x 8).
• Supports 3.3v SDRAM DIMM.

Maybe you could use a small ram check tool to see if it is the RAM surely first.

i have used memtest before and that didnt show any RAM problems, any other tools i could try?

is this a laptop? how old is the computer?

its a desktop, about 5 years old

do you have a usb2 card running the external drive?

what’s the OS

how much ram?
what cpu?

yup, a usb2 card

win XP home

512 RAM

AMD Athlon 1700+

do you want a summary from EVEREST?

How many times did you let memtest86 run through? I’ve had occasions where it detects nothing wrong during the first cycle but shows up with errors on the second onwards. I generally run 2 to 3 cycles with memtest86.

i left it on overnight so would have been about 8 hours.

it ran 15 tests, so how many cycles is that?

That should be more than enough. Strange.

Your specs are fairly similar to mine. What DVD writer are you using (funny, we asked everything except that one ;))? Also, a short summary of your system specs by some system information tool like Nero Infotool might help.

LG 4167B, just bought it because my old one screwed up (kept opening on its own)

this is the summary from EVEREST:

Monitor         GSM4326: Plug and Play Monitor [NoDB]

I would try moving some usb devices around and even pulling the old modem,
maybe switching the slot the usb2 card is in.

usb is a very cpu intensive interface

would that help stop the crashing when i use the drive?
