    I built a new system over the weekend and install Vista Ultimate and was
    running fine for a day until I came back home from work the next day to find
    the machine was turn off. So I turn it back on but it keep rebooting
    everytime when it reaches the desktop with the following error:

    Here is the message on the screen before it reboot:

    A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage
    to your computer.


    Technical information:
    *** STOP: 0x0000001A (0x00041790,0xc0801648,0x0000FFFF,0x00000000)

    and here is the dump after reboot to safe mode:

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.0.6000.
    Locale ID: 4105

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode: 1a
    BCP1: 00041790
    BCP2: C0801648
    BCP3: 0000FFFF
    BCP4: 00000000
    OS Version: 6_0_6000
    Service Pack 0_0
    Product: 256_1

    I am not able to attach the 3 dump file here but if anyone need it to
    analyse, I can certainly email them.

    System configuration:
    MB: EVGA e-7100/630i.
    CPU : E2180
    Memory : 2x1GB OCZ PC-6400
    Hard Disk : Maxtor 250GB SATA II

    Any kind of help will be very much appreciated.

    A couple of things to check. Make sure you have updated video drivers for
    your system. Also it is possible that it might be a memory issue. Update
    your drivers first and see if that fixes it. If not, you just might want to
    run some memory tests. Swap memory if you can.

    That is a good place to start.

    I run memtest against the memory and found 1 faulty memory. replace it and
    now is up and running with no reboot. Hopefully, that's it.
