    Hi everyone. I am having troubles with Windows vista Home Premium 64 bit. Every now and then it will have crash. It did it 4 times within 10 min 2 nights ago. It happens sometimes when I plug my phone in or I start my computer or just run a program. Does anyone know what is causing this?

    My hardware

    ASUS M3N-HT Deluxe/HDMI
    AMD Athlon 64 x2 4850e
    EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX+ video card
    3Gb AMPO Wintec memory
    LG DVD burner/drive
    250Gb Seagate HDD
    500watt psu

    I dont think it is a problem with the hardware though.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Common BSOD under Vista/Win7 is usually related to a faulty hardware (like RAM), or a driver issue that can't be restarted/killed by the OS kernel.

    Of course, it all depends on the error message that you get on the BSOD. With that message, we can help you figure out the problem.

    Well when it happens a blue screen comes up and it says it does a physical memory dumb. All the drivers are up to date. I also check the error messages and all it says is "Blue Screen".

    c:\temp\WER-159640-0.sysdata.xml

    There's a good chance it's a bad memory stick. I had exactly the same problem a while back with my Crucial Ballistix Tracer memory. I had 4x1Gbs, not good. One or more kept resulting in BSOD. They looked good tho'. Ended up with Corsair in the end.
    Try populating different DIMMs, or, by process of elimination, remove some of the memory and hit restart.

    yeah ballistix had a bad batch one year I remember.. their quality control went to hell or something- alot of people ended up with dead sticks.. they would work fine for awhile then predictably go =\

    Well I ran a couple passes of the Windows Vista Memory Test and found no errors. A little more on the BSOD... it says PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA acedrv.sys and the rest is just saying if its the first time seeing the page and all that and the physical memory dump.

    Well I dont think its a problem with the ram since ive ran tests on it and no problems were found. Also ive been looking into the acedrv08.sys problem and apparently there is a known problem with it producing errors. Also the card reader I have isn't an Ace card reader. Its a Dynex and it didnt come with any drivers. Plus the problem was happening way before I purchaced my card reader.

    I was just talking to Microsoft and they said that the file that caused the error was from the video card and had me disable the drivers for it to see if its the culprit. My computer is pretty much useless now since I can't play any games or anything. If anyone else has an idea of what I can do I would appreciate it.
