So, i've had this error for months where my PC crashed when playing games. It has only recently started giving minidumps. Now that i have one, can you guys help me fix this?
Here's the analysis from windbg
Invalid system memory was referenced. This cannot be protected by try-except,
it must be protected by a Probe. Typically the address is just plain bad or it
is pointing at freed memory.
Arg1: ff73500a, memory referenced.
Arg2: 00000001, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.
Arg3: b86714e9, If non-zero, the instruction address which referenced the bad memory
Arg4: 00000000, (reserved)
I use avast version 7 and I don't have a rdummy.sys file. Are you sure it's an avast file and not some malware? Also, does it give the same error every time? The error reads like an access violation, which is due to bad programming, not the system it self.
It could also be a memory problem. Try running a few passes of memtest86+ and see what turns up.
I have lots more dumps if these help, sorry i haven't been on. I've put them in a .rar archive, there's 9 of them, i'll upload more if i get the problem (which i probably will) again. here's the link http://www.4shared.com/get/dKquVXLh/minidumps.html
