My computer crashes with a PFN-List-Corrupt error message.
The PFN List Corrupt error usually means that the memory management Page File Number list is corrupted. This can be caused by faulty RAM or even by drivers. You can test this by taking out some of the RAM assuming you have more than one chip and try running it to see if you get the same blue screen error. You can also try just taking the RAM out and re-seating it in the slots. One trick is to run an eraser along the connector on the RAM to make sure there is no buildup of dirt causing a bad connection. There are memory testing programs available such as memtest that will run diagnostics on your memory as well.
