Blue Screen o' Death 0x00000024, ccaused by Java Virtual Machine message?

Last night I got the Java Virtual Machine Launcher Program not found, Program will exit for the first time ever on my computer.  Surprise.  Today I got the Blue screen of 0x00000024 along with NTFS.sys message.  I've looked high and low.  It appears it may be related to hard drive or memory.  Is there a way to test memory without removing it from PC? Cannot run chkdsk.  Have run defrag and scandisk.  Doesn't cmos allow you to check and see if memory is healthy?  Could the Java message be causing this?  I'm in a p-a-n-i-c.

Thanks.  Libbi

Hello there,

Can you get into the OS at all? Or does it give you a blue screen upon startup? You could also try booting into safemode and running a memory test with memtester. If all else fails try doing "Last Known Good Configuation" see if that helps.

Here is where you can get the free memory tester.


Keep updating with information if nothing is working for you.
if the mems ok try reinstalling the JAVA Runtime environment
I doubt that this is being cause by the JVM, at least not directly.  The JVM is user-mode code only.  Since it has no kernel-mode code, it CANNOT cause a BSOD.

If the error in from NTFS.SYS, then chances are good that you have a DISK problem or a corrupted filesystem.  Could also be a memory problem but that is less likely in my opinion.

Did you check the Event Viewer for any further details?  Often there will be reports about any disk problems.
