Have a Dell 1600SC 3 GB RAM, 2- 70 GB SCSI drives. Works fine. when bringing up GeoVision software system goes blue screen and crashes. PFN_LIST corrupt. works fine with Oracle and SQL. Have stopped all processes, but, GeoVision GV-650 card software crashes system. Any one got any ideas short of wiping and only putting on Windows 2003 Server and that application

See event logs.
Did it ever work correctly?

It may be a bad install or bad application too.

Run a clean install of Vista in a Virtual Machine, don't have to register it just run a VM and see if it works. The 1600SC will not fully support VM's unless you had the last batches of 2.8+ xeon'sI think.

Might have to install and run in compatibility mode.

If you do try memtest, you need to change some bios setting otherwise it fails. I think it is like disable legacy usb support in bios. It reserves some area of memory until the OS takes over usb keyboard and mouse.Then memtest fails. Cost dell a lot.
