PSU causing the problem?
Everytime I play a game, my computer gets stuck or BSODs. Usually the bsods are page_fault_in_nonpaged_ar ea (memory issue?) & irql_not_less_or_equal. My Video card is a Palit Nvidia Geforce FX 5500 (AGP8X).. I just had my pc cleaned so I think overheating is not the problem.. (I think...)
According to Everest, these are my psu voltages:
CPU Core- 1.25V @ 2.66GHZ (Pentium D)
+3.3v- 2.80v (isn't it too low?)
By the way, my motherboard is an ECS 848P-A7.
Video card driver is Xtreme-G 175.63. Running XP SP2. Have 2 case fans. Gonna upgrade my pc someday.... :)
Yeah, you could try increasing the size of your pagefile:
Right click My Computer, Properties, Advanced (Tab), Performance (Settings), Advanced (Tab), Virtual Memory (Change)
I got 1GB RAM, and my pagefile is 1536MB, should I increase it to 2000MB? (the pagefile)
You could try, but I doubt it is the problem if you have 2GB of RAM and a pagefile of that size already.
So how about the power supply issue? Is it the problem?

Try this to find out if it's your memory.
If it was the PSU then your PC would simple turn off, it wouldn't blue screen.
Doesn't the +3.3v need to be at least 3.2v? or my video card runs at 0.8v which it can handle? Anyways, I'll try memtest.

Ok, thanks! :D by the way my psu is a tornado 350w..
