The instruction at 0x674def80 referenced memory at 0xff74e801.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello there, I've got a problem with a persistent error message:



It occurs pretty much every time I shut down my computer after gaming (or in the middle of a game).

There also seems to be a problem when I watch videos online using shockwave flash player. The plugin will crash with the error message above (which is the same as the shutdown error message).

I've noticed that shockwave flash has some GPU usage so I thought this may be related.



[PC Specs are in the signature]
All drivers are up to date (including NB / chipset drivers) except the bios.

If anyone can let me know what this error message is actually telling me I would be very grateful. Unfortunately I cannot read the part at the top and google has proved useless at searching for that error code.

Thanks in advance

Off the top of my head, I would say this is either due to the following:

- Faulty Memory module (RAM)
- Bad Sector on Hard Drive

Does this happen randomly?

First of all, you want to rule out HDD or RAM before you start to get too involved with the troubleshooting.

1. Check HDD for bad sectors

Run this Samsung HDD Diagnostic Tool

Burn it to a CD-ROM and boot your computer from it. Follow the instructions and run a full test.

2. Check RAM with Memtest x86

Download this ISO. Burn it to a CD-ROM and boot from it. Let the memory test run through fully a few times. If you find errors, do it again with only one stick of RAM at a time until you find the faulty one.

Once you've ruled out both of these, then you can proceed with further diagnostics
