hi, ive recently been having a lot of blue screens, first off i was told it was my keyboard driver so i changed that and it looked as if it had stopped, but then i started to get them again and i thought it was my dvd writer, so i have disconnected that, and now i have reformatted and when i go to run norton system scan i keep getting blue screens,

my two favourite ones are

Driver IRQL not less or equal

i8042prt.sys address f86853a3 base at f8685000 date stamp 3d6de41d

and the other

Stop 0x000000BE (0x00460020, 0x16613025, 0xA9D7B420, 0x0000000A)

please can someone help as its been dragging on for months now, and ive come to the point where the next time it does it its going out the window

cheers

Hi mhaysom123,

0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

What microsoft has to say about it:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/winxppro/reskit/prmd_stp_ottj.asp

The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

Error Message with RAM Problems or Damaged Virtual Memory Manager

Could be caused by bad memmory, check it with a tool like Memtest86:

0x000000BE: ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_READONLY_MEMORY
http://www.aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php#0xbe

What Microsoft has to say about it:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/winxppro/reskit/prmd_stp_ovrp.asp

A driver attempted to write to read-only memory. Commonly occurs after installing a faulty device driver, system service, or firmware. If a driver file is named in the error message, try to correct the problem by disabling, removing, or rolling back the driver.

So in both cases, it could be a bad driver, I suggest you to take a good look at your printerdriver as i8042prt.sys points that one out.

Greetings,
