Hi all, hoping that someone will be able to help me here, i have a problem with a machine i built and i cant figure out what it is. Im not sure if you will need the spec of the machine but i will leave it at the bottom of my question. Basicly after running the pc fine for over 1 week solid (using as a game server) i keep getting crashes evry 24 hours. At 1st this used to crash the entire system (blue screen) but after changing a few settings it now just crashes certain applications, to be exact counterstrike source and deltaforce black hawk down. These are the only applications that crash and it doesnt matter if they are both being ran at the same time or not. I have analized the dump file amd am able to find the address that the error occurs but i am not able determin what is running at that address. I have searched google about it but im never able to get understand andy of the pages that i find. Here is the information from the dump file:

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: c0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: bf80912c, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: f5b6eba8, Trap Frame
Arg4: 00000000

Debugging Details:

If i am doing this correctly i belevie that the error has something to do with this part of the stack? (if thats the right word)

f5b6ec20 bf8140fc 00a5d1c8 00004e20 f5b6ec98 win32k!FHungApp+0x17

particularly at this address: bf80912c

Now maby im going to sound like a complete newb here but im thinking that this win32k!FHungApp+0x17 is the cause of my problem. However if i am correct about that i have no idea what it is or even how to find out what it is (appart from asking the experts here).

I would be eternaly geatfull if anyone could shed some light on this matter for me as its got to the point i think im about to actualy cry, real boo hoo style :)

As prommised here is the spec of the machine

P4 3.06ghz Prescott
1gb ddr400
80 GB SATA (maxtor)
PCCHIPS m955g Motherboard

Hrm... this is a toughie since it doesn't list anything other than Windows files that might have caused it.
I would lean on looking at memory.  First I would try running some memory diagnostics www.memtest86.com and then maybe setting up some performance counters to track how much memory is in use to see if a mem leak is causing it.

Finally, you might try running a System File Checker
Start>Run>sfc /scannow
and make sure you have your XP CD handy as it will check Windows files against what you have install.

Spyware checks are also good.

Great, thanks for the quick reply, im currently running some performance counters to see if i can find any memory leaks (hoping its going to be obvious if there is as i dont know what im looking for), as for the mem test its not possible for me to run it as the pc is at a data centre for hosting and its something i cant do remotely, as far as im aware. I did however run the windows memory diognostic for over 24 hours before i shiped it for hosting and there was no problems showing up there. Again the system file checker is going to be a hard one to run remotely so i guess im gonna have to ftp up the i386 directory overnight and run it tomorrow sometime.

Spyware is next on my list, but im not sure its going to bring anything up. I never used the server on the internet before shipping and havent used it online since shipping for anything other than hosting the servers. Not sure if this matters in regards to being infrected by spyware though, but it is something i will most definatly check out.
