Random reboots on XP Sp2

Posted on 2006-04-23
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
This just started a few days ago... ill be sitting working on something or my PC will be idle then bam BSoD system halted.

I reboot everything is fine till later. Ive ran virus scans.. all my hardware seems to check out fine. below are links to my minidump files. i cannot figure out what the deal is.

This is the error that windows shows after the reboot:

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.  The bugcheck was: 0x1000000a (0x00000005, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804f8c19). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini042306-02.dmp.

If you need to know anything else about my system let me know. Everything is up to date software wise.

    Well have you tried system recovery to an earlier date before the problem started? Sometime it helps and is very simple before you take some serious measures into consideration.

    could you check the event viewer to see if it can tell what process is causing the mess.

    did you install any programs before this happened? any new hardware?

    try running:
    start -> run -> "sfc /scannow"

    also try reinstalling windows using the REPAIR option (this will keep your data, and just overwrite windows system core files) using your windows XP cd. Usually this takes an hour so only use this as a last resort

    the error code provided says 0x00000005 this is an  Invalid process attach attempt.  so find the process and theres your answer and you say it happens when it idls so my thought would be power management or hibernation mode is causeing the issue try disabling both of these features and see what happens.

    After it happend the first time... i formated the PC installed fresh windows.. all new upated drivers... no hardware has been added to this box it atleast a few months. it happends when at random times... idles or running any programs.

    the only thing i see in the event viewer is

    Error code 1000000a, parameter1 00000005, parameter2 00000002, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 804f8c19.

    The server {F3A614DC-ABE0-11D2-A441-00C04F795683} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

    Probably it is caused by faulty memory or Norton AV. The Norton AV may be conflict with the device driver.

    1. De-install Norton AV and Install AVG
    2. Run memtest to stress test the ram.
    3. Run 3DMark 2005 to test your video card

    It is unlikely it is the software error at SiWinAcc as I don't find similar hit at goggle,

    This guy had similar problems and after a lot of work concluded that it was bad RAM.

    Download memtest and run to check if it's faulty RAM..
    Don't forget to use a bootable floppy disc..
