Bsod stop 50

I'm getting a BSOD stop 50 error when i play Empire total war... always seems to happen when there is an epic battle going on.

the question is, does anybody actually know what these are refering to?

*** STOP: 0X00000050 (0XFFFFFF7, 0X00000000, 0X805701F8, 0X000000)

RAM: Corsair 1024 mb x 4
MOBO: p5ld2
CPU: Intel Pentium 805 D 2.66 @ 3.66
PSU: 650w
3 SATAs, 2 old hds
2 dvd drives
3 120mm fans

Windows XP pro. 32 bit

I keep hearing its about ram. in total i would have 4, but i do realize that 32bit windows can only recognize like 3.something.

Can anyone help me?

  1. run memtest
    If you get ANY errors, even 1, then the problem is in your ram. I would run it for atleast 8 hours or more.

    If you get an error, then try memtest with 1 stick of ram at a time.

    source from

    Stop 0x00000050 or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

    The Stop 0x50 message indicates that requested data was not in memory. The system generates an exception error when using a reference to an invalid system memory address. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause Stop 0x50 messages.

    Possible Resolutions:

    • If you added new hardware recently, remove and replace the hardware to determine if it is causing or contributing to the problem. Run diagnostics software supplied by the hardware manufacturer to determine if the component has failed.

    • Stop 0x50 messages can also occur after installing faulty drivers or system services. If the file name is listed, you need to disable, remove, or roll back that driver. If not, disable the recently installed service or application to determine if this resolves the error. If this does not resolve the problem, contact the hardware manufacturer for updates. Using updated drivers and software is especially important for network interface cards, video adapters, backup programs, multimedia applications, antivirus scanners, and CD mastering tools. If an updated driver is not available, attempt to use a driver from a similar device in the same family. For example, if printing to a Model 1100C printer causes Stop 0x50 errors, using a printer driver meant for a Model 1100A or Model 1000 might temporarily resolve the problem.

    1) what your antivirus
    2)did you change any hardware
  3. I did a windows 7 memory test. everything was fine.

    Turns out, my registry was all messed up and corrrupt after 4 years of overlapping and reinstalling crap.

    Did a registry clean, hasnt happened so far.........
