Ok, so for a while I have been getting blue screens which turned out to be caused by a faulty ram module. I removed the ram module, so now I only have 256mb ram in my laptop. So, now there's no blue screens of that type. But now I get another kind of blue screen. I had had this blue screen before I took out the faulty ram too. It usually happens right when I start playing mostly any game, if not, shortly after. Well, not at the menus, but once the game actually starts.
So, the computer bluescreens, saying "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA" and also saying it seems that "igxpdx32.dll" has caused the problem.
I understand igxpdx32.dll has to do with my graphics card driver. It's a Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS, 910GML. I have already tried downloading the newest drivers, and no luck. I have windows XP pro.
After googling, it seems there are lots of people with this error, but there don't seem to be many useful responses. Does anybody have a clue what the problem could be? I pray it's not hardware related... Please help!
Hmm maybe you should reduce the size of memory that's allocated to video, since I guess it takes some from main memory, and as you reduced it ... Perhaps also look at the values for virtual memory (pagefile).
That actually sounds like a VRAM error. You have an on-board/integrated GPU, which means it shares memory with your RAM. There usually is a bios setting for adjusting that ammount. You most likely have too little RAM to play the game.
It's just a conjecture, but you may want to get some more RAM. Well, despite the fact that the game won't run, you need more then 256mb to run XP smoothly.
I have found on average XP alone can take up close to 200MB of RAM. Then your video sharing RAM is likely at least another 32MB. That's only 18MB left and obviously not enough for gaming. Common sense dictates if you know one RAM module is faulty on such a sytem, which is barely enough to game with in the first place, you replce it with a new one.

Yeah, you're pretty much boned without more RAM.
Yeah that. ^ l
Alright everyone, thanks. We were going to buy 1gb anyway, so hopefully that will work out. We'll see!!!
