Strange crashes

Hey all,

I've been running my rig for 3 months or so now with no problems. Anyway, recently, when I've switched the machine off for a long period of time (18 hours+) when I switch it on it'll BSOD once, then reset, then it'll BSOD again....(after letting me use it for a few minutes). Then, third time..It's fine! runs perfectly well for games etc etc.

I've got a crash log here from a program called who crashed, which is attached...It says Memory error, though I've run a few tests on the RAM (admittedly only through Prime95) and it seems fine. The program suggests it's more likely a driver error...PErfectly reasonably given I've got a HOTAS joystick, TrackIR, old webcam etc plugged in...Anyway, if anybody can shed some light on this problem I'll be very appreciative.

Thanks all,

Con


Here are the logs:

On Fri 25/03/2011 18:54:43 GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntkrnlmp.exe (nt!KeBugCheckEx+0x0)
Bugcheck code: 0x1A (0x41790, 0xFFFFFA8000463FE0, 0xFFFF, 0x0)
Error: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
Bug check description: This indicates that a severe memory management error occurred.
This might be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

Yp, can confirm now that its been on for a while it has absolutely no issues...I have an old HDD, though I doubt that's the issue...Perhaps a component is having power/contact issues prior to warming up? Very odd...May just leave my pc on permanently in standbye mode
