We've had 6 laptops crash today for no apparent reason, leaving a .dmp (which I can't understand even using WinDbg.exe).
These laptops are crashing at different times( no pattern ) and the our NAV Defs are todays.#
Event log details: The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.  The bugcheck was: 0x00000050 (0xe27df000, 0x00000000, 0xbe6f9077, 0x00000001). Microsoft Windows 2000 [v15.2195]. A dump was saved in: C:\WINNT\Minidump\Mini073002-01.dmp.

Any ideas?

I know this is way far out in left field, but could it be a problem with the virus defs? Did you update them right before the computer crashed? I have seen that happen before because virus defs were corrupted on download. Just thought I'd ask.

Actually Norton have in the past admitted to releasing corrupt DEFS, our DEFS are updated everyday. When this problem began we immediatley updated the DEFS in case of a virus.

If you still have any concern of it possibly being a virus I would try running the free virus scanner from here: http://housecall.antivirus.com

Well, in the end I discovered it was a Xerox printer driver which was causing the crashes can you believe.

Hi Blogg,

I can't see why you accepted my answer if it did not help you. If you would like, post a 0 pt question in the topic area Community Support asking that the question be deleted and points refunded. I think that can be done. Glad you got the problem fixed. :0)
