BSOD/Stop error after login in XPPro on Domain
Posted on 2004-10-18
I'm getting four different BSOD/Stop errors after login on my XPPro SP2 (and all current hotfixes) system. They appear to come up in a random order and after 3-6 reboots I am able to log in successfully. These errors only happen under my domain account. They never happen when logging on as the local admin account.
Here's what I'm getting:
The most common one is: 0x1000008e (0xc0000005, 0x80606859, 0xef59ebf0, 0x00000000) no further parameters
The second most common one: 0x00000024 (0x001902fe, 0xf896b904, 0xf896b600, 0x8057a65e) no further parameters. About half the time it appears after an application error which references a random 6 character exe name, e.g. YM15FA.EXE. The exe is never found on my system once I successfully get logged in.
Third most common: 0x10000050 (0xffffffe8, 0x00000001, 0x804d917e, 0x00000000) Page_Fault_In_Nonpaged_Area. Like the Stop 24 it sometimes is preceeded by a random named 6 character exe.
A handful of times I've also seen: 0x00000019 (0x00000020, 0xe29435e8, 0xe2943758, 0x0c2e0079) Bad_Pool_Header
In every case the BSOD happens after login during the applying computer settings dialog appears. It usually gets far enough for my desktop wallpaper (but not my desktop icons) to appear. It always happens before my login sound plays.
I'm running a:
Dell Optiplex GX270
1/2 gig of ram
Intel 82865G video card (driver 18.104.22.16862)
SoundMax integrated audio (driver 22.214.171.12400)
Intel Pro/1000 MT NIC (driver 126.96.36.199)
As a member of a domain
I did a clean build of the system about a week ago and installed drivers from Dell for my chipset and the hardware listed above. 3 of my coworkers also did clean build's on identical GX270's a week ago. 2 are error free, the third is experiencing the same symptoms as I am. All of us are on A03 bios (A06 is available).
I've found two differences in comparing this to my coworker's systems.
1. Two of my coworkers are running SoundMax 188.8.131.5255. One is error free, the other is experiencing the same problems as I am.
2. I have customized (no third party utilities) my desktop to make XP resemble W2K. No one else has (including the coworker who is experiencing the same problems as I am).
I do not believe the customization or the different SoundMax driver versions are relevant, but mention them for sake of thoroughness.
I have tried (in order):
1. Updated drivers for everything listed above
2. Reapplied SP2 after driver installation
3. Rolled back to previous driver versions for everything listed above
4. Reapplied SP2
5. Updated back to the newest drivers
6. Reapplied SP2
I was able to log in successfully after completing #2 above, however the next morning my system went back to BSOD's on login. I then did steps 3 and 4 and was able to log in successfully. As before, the next time I rebooted I got BSOD's again. Finally I tried 5 and 6 and was unsuccessful after 5+ reboots so I logged on as my local admin account, deleted my domain profile and was successful.
The other coworker having this problem also tried deleting his domain profile and was successful for a few reboots but then experienced the same series of BSOD's again.
Today after 5 reboots I was successful with no BSOD. My coworker was successful after 3 BSOD's.
In retrospect, I do not believe any of my steps 1-6 or deleting the domain profile were effective.
After successfully logging in today I've defraged my hd (it was minimally fragmented). Run chkdsk /f, and spent a lot of time not finding too many useful KB Articles.
If anyone has any ideas I'd sure appreciate the help!
PS: Yes, I know, udpate the bios, but we're all on the same bios rev and half of us are working so I don't think it's the bios either.
