    First time I ever had this problem so I wanted to run it by some other computer techs out there.

    Ok, it's a Dell Dimension DIM4700
    w/ an Intel P4 3.0GHz Processor,
    1GB of RAM (4 256MB Sticks),
    ATI Radeon X1300 Series (PCI),
    and a Seagate 40GB (8GB Free) HDD (SATA)

    Problems that are easy to see
    PSU damaged near plug-in
    HDD Fragmented all to hell
    HDD getting full FAST
    Has TONS of Flight Simulators (System Hogs)
    McAfee Antivirus (System Hog)


    I came up with the cause of problems

    CPU Fan Inadequate for performance
    RAM either too slow or messed up
    Drivers outdated for Hardware
    Dell PC
    Game Requirements to high for system
    HDD Fragmented
    HDD Getting Full
    Damaged PSU

    The Client also printed out BSOD screen errors and they include

    0x50 (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA) - Seems to happen while running M$ Flight Sim 2004

    0x1A (MEMORY_MANAGMENT) - Happened while running M$ Flight Sim 2004 and Rhapsody

    Now, it seems to me that it's his RAM but I just wanna double check like I said.

    Thanks for the help,
    CFultz

    Yes, that sounds like a RAM issue. Update the RAM, and if the PSU looks damaged replace that too. Only replace it with a high quality unit however (so no Rosewill garbage)

    Yeah that's the exact error a friend of mine had with his laptop. It essentially means there's a hardware fault with the RAM. He had his RAM replaced and the problem was cured.
