Blue Screen of Death too frequently
Hello. Recently I started experiencing system restarts for no known reason. I have had the same hardware in my system for a least six months, and all I have done software wise is to do a fresh install of Win XP and install the latest drivers of my hardware. The restarts happen seemingly randomly, and not just during any specific application. Sometimes I can use my computer for a whole day without a restart, and other times it will happen frequently. I have even had it happen within seconds after my computer booting.
I changed the restart automatically option the other day, so that I would get the BSOD and could write down the error messages listed there. So far I have only written down one of these messages. It basically said that the error was "caused by the following file: dxg.sys..." "page fault in non paged area..." "dxg.sys - Address BFF83AF1 base at BFF80000...Date Stamp 3d6fa2a..."
This sounds to me like possibly a hard drive that is going bad, or memory modules that have suddenly started to fail...of course, I don't know what I am talking about either.
Could this be a result of the last time that I updated my video card or motherboard drivers? The BSOD does not happen systematically enough for me to be able to narrow down the problem. And, since I do a fresh install of windows each time I update my drivers, I cannot exactly just roll back to a previously working version of Windows. Like some commercial said, I don't even know enough to know that I don't know. Can someone please tell me something specific that I can try to diagnose this problem. And, I don't know how to edit my registry, or do a lot of things that people might be inclined to suggest. So, if anyone is kind enough to offer me help, would you please give me very detailed instructions, or point me somewhere that will give me specific instructions? Thank you for your understanding.
Also, I have recently added PC Cillin 2004, although I did not necessarily notice that the problem started right after that or anything, as the crashes are normally so infrequent, that I didn't even really take note of them at first.
