STOP 0xc0000221 Bad image file checksum
Posted on 1998-05-06
I installed Windows NT 4.0 workstation on my PC (486 DX4 mother-board SA486P AIO-II, Phoenix Bios V4.03, NCR SDMS PCI SCSI BIOS V3.04.00, NCR 53C810 PCI SCSI controller on board, disk id 0 is Fujitsu M2684S-512, disk id 1 is Fujitsu M2684S-512, disk id 2 is Ibm DCAS-34330, disk id 3 is CDROM CDU-55S) and randomly the stop error 0xc0000221 occurs on boot. The files that seams to be corrupted are the oleaut32.dll and sometimes the shell32.dll file. I installed the miniport driver symc8xx.sys (version FLINT-4.05.00) downloaded from Symbios Logic site).
No viruses have been found on the computer, so I don't know how these files can be corrupted on boot and I take care to turn off the system when all hard-disk activities are terminated. I believe that there is a problem with the miniport driver, but unfortunately it is random!
Is there anyone that could help me to solve this enigma?
Any suggestion would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
