Original Problem Posted by: zack on 11/07/2002
here's my problem
see, my computer worked just fine, up until 5 days ago, where sudden blue screens of gibbrishing errors started to appear quite randomly... sometimes when i was playing a game, another time when i was watching movies, and so on, and so on.
the errors were, as i soon came to know from this forum, pretty common(an exception 0E has occured at 0028:C0014E88 in VXD ---, for instance, ive seen the exact same problem, with a slightly diffrent ending, or for example, A fatal exception 0E has occured at 017F:BFF9E0FB)
so i started to rule out the hard causing options, wasnt my dlls, the video card driver, or any of my settings... then, i took a RAM checker program called docmemory, and it found out the problem: bad memory.
my question is, does this mean that i need to take the computer to a computer repair guy, or, can i tell the computer somehow to ignore the bad memory area? there seems to be only one error in the ext memory, and, while i dont know how much impact it will have on the computer, it could save me some time, and money, if i could just disable that sector... so, is it possible? or is it time to throw another 100$ bill or replacing chips?
