Hi there Shintaro,

I have removed CCC a few days ago, as you've already told me to do so. Nevertheless, I did the procedure again, removing an entrance in Control Panel called "ATI Catalyst Install Manager", which didn't find any CCC inside (!) to remove/uninstall.

Nonetheless, I went to Device Manager and tried to update the graphics driver, choosing and pointing to the folder I've unzipped it. It said "Windows already has the most recent blablabla". So, I did the process again but now choosing the "Let me choose from a list bla bla bla" option. And it did installed another driver (FYI: Ati Radeon 9600/9550/X1050 Series). Let's see how it goes from here now.

And no, the power supply was not the problem. Since I've switched it, I keep getting BSOD's / freeze's / crash's all the time :(

Also, let me say this to you, the "MEMORY.DMP" file that I've uploaded yesterday has the 16th November 2012 date. Shouldn't this be updated with a more recent date?

I'll attach the last minidump file, but I think this is just like the others (ntoskrnl.exe).

Thanks again.

Cheers

I don't get it, I have it removed since you've asked me from the first time. I've "ctrl+shift+esc" to watch the task manager and CCC.exe it is not in the process list. Does this mean that Catalyst is not in my machine anymore? May it has appeared in the Full Memory dump because of it's date? Like I've said, this file (memory.dmp) is dated 16November2012.

And no, I haven't switched power supply again, it is still working with 2nd (the old that I have it here) not the one that originally came with the computer. I really don't get it...

In the meantime, another freeze / BSOD (see the attachment).
As this always happens only when I'm working in the computer (I mean, in front of it opening webpages, moving the mouse, etc. - as I've said before, computer stays on the whole night and the next day is still up as I left it) I have now removed my usb mouse and connected my old ps2 mouse, just to check it too. I've read something about mouse drivers may cause BSOD (?).

Thank you. Again.

Cheers

So I chased up information from Intel regarding the faulty Internal timer (Proc 0 Bank 0).

It appears that it is the CPU that is indeed faulty.

Things that I considered:

  • You changed the Power supply and the fault remained.
  • Fault is always the same WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124)
  • We fixed the problematic software causing other crashes.
  • You have the latest BIOS for that old board.
The only other thing that you *might* try is reset the BIOS to default.


On the plus side, I would imagine that a Pentuim 4 CPU would be cheap as they are very old now.


Sorry but that is all I can help you with now.

Hi there Shintaro,

Well, I took a look to the dates which dumps occured and I've noticed that they got more frequent since the 2nd of November (before that, I had only three: two on the 22nd of August and another one in the 1st of September).

So, I've decided to uninstall some of the programs that I've installed since the beginning of November (Flac for Windows, Adobe Audition, iWisoft Free Video Downloader).

Also, I went to MSConfig and stopped some services at startup: CTXFIHLP.exe (creative), Google Update, Groove Monitor, Nero AG Check and Adobe Gamma Loader.

Let's see how it behaves from now on. So far, so good, no BSOD or freeze since last night. But, honestly, I'm always expecting the mouse pointer not to move anymore and have to push reset button again... If so, I'll reset BIOS to default values then.

Thank you.

Cheers

Hello Shintaro,

So, my last attempts to solve the problem didn't produced any good results, I kept getting the same BSOD after uninstall/stop of programs and services at startup.

But I've discovered where the problem is/was. It's the Graphics Card (ATI Radeon 9600 - 256Mb).
I discovered a "blistered condenser" (not sure if this is the right way of naming it in english, but here's a picture of the "thing": http://img33.imageshack.us/img33/5995/aaaazxa.jpg) in it.
So, I've had it removed and switched it with a new one.
In the meanwhile, I've used an old, very old, Graphics Card (32Mb) with my system, which has no drivers for Windows 7, using the Windows Pattern Adapter driver then. And no BSOD's for 3 or 4 days in a row.

I've then installed my usual and renewed Graphics Card and had no BSOD's for 2 days. But when I was thinking my problem was solved, it happened again :(
I then discovered that if I use the Windows Pattern Adapter driver with it, I have no BSOD's with this card too, as I hadn't with that old one.

And here I am now. Using my ATI Radeon 9600 - 256Mb with no drivers, which means no 3D acceleration. I mean, I don't play games (a long time ago! lol) but this is somewhat annoying, when I try to see a video from youtube or so.
But then again, better than nothing, right?

If anyone knows of an alternative driver for this (other than the one provided in the AMD official, which is for the Vista OS) please let me know lol :)

Again, thank you very much, for your tips and for your patience with my problem. I don't know how this works now, shall I mark the thread as Solved?

Cheers
