BSOD Again

Hi All,

I've been getting 'the blue screen' recently for no apparent reason. 90% of the errors are whilst surfing the internet (mostly playing on Pogo), and again, most errors say IRQL Not Less or Equal. Various files are referred to in the stop message, and nearly all are nVidia driver files.

System Spec:

Dell XPS 600
nVidia 6800 Graphics
nVidia nForce 4
250GB HD
1GB Ram
McAfee Security Centre with all features enabled


I've tried updating the graphics drivers and supporting software to latest versions. I've also tried rolling back nForce 4 drivers to 5.0.4.0 from 5.0.9.0, but without sucess. I've even turned DEP off in the system BIOS on the advice of another solutions site.

Can anyone help me with this? I can't trace this problem back to a particular install of software, and the XPS box has never even been opened.

I've got huge amount of free HD space, and the core temperatures of my CPU and nVidia 6800 seem fine.

I'd rather exhaust all possible software solutions before trying things like "remove the RAM chips one by one" etc.  !!

Ta

Jell

I would try the RAM tests that you can download, and burn to an .iso format.

Related, I don't think so, but it is a curious item.

I would download the latest NVidia driver set from their web-site.  If you cannot stay online long enough to download the drivers w/o blue-screening, then get a copy of MaximumPC (no plug intended), their companion "MaximumCD" always includes the latest NVidia/ATI drivers.

It is not unheard of for McAfee security center itself to cause a blue screen.

also Test memory, check the CPU temperature. make sure everything inside is seated properly.

if the memory test fails you could try setting it to slower timings sometimes that will help on borderline memory.

if its not the memory it could be the power supply or even one of the power supply connectors is just loose or corroded.

If blue screen occurs during surfing at internnet, the crash may be caused by firewall, AV, spyware or network card device driver error. The system event log and the minidump has the most useful diagnostic information. When Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 or 1003 and a minidump to the folder \windows\minidump. Check system event 1001 and 1003 and it has the detail of the blue screen.

Event ID: 1001
Source: Save Dump
Description:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.The bugcheck was : 0xc000000a (0xe1270188, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804032100).
Microsoft Windows..... A dump was saved in: .......

Event Source: System Error
Event Category: (102)
Event ID: 1003
Description:
Error code 1000007f, parameter1 0000000d, parameter2 00000000, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000

Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001/1003. Copy the content and paste it back here

Zip 5 to 6 minidumps to a zip file and attach it at any webspace. I will study the dump and find out the culprit. If you can't provide the minidumps, run memtest to stress test the ram. Make sure that your windows is not infected with spyware, adware adn chkdsk /r.

Get public webspace
Use a free service like rapidshare to attach the minidumps and post the url of the mimidumps at this thread.

Hi,

Your windows is crashed with various bugcheck code and they are the symptoms of faulty ram. If you zip all the minidumps at webspace, I can confirm whether is ram or device driver problem.

Hi,

Your windows crashed at different device driver. According to my record, your version of device driverof the follwowing device driver has known software problem. Upgrade the following device driver

Mcafee Personnel Firewall
nVidia network resource manager <-- One problem was reported at this forum at this week
Mcafee Anti Virus

Some minidumps are crashed due to memory corruption. Run memtest to stress test the ram.

Hi,

The first minidump is crashed at tcpip and it is the symptom of faulty ram.  Your windows have hardware and device driver problem.

Memtest showed no errors after 6 passes.

I've updated every single major device driver on my system and everything has now been fine for a few hours.

...until next time....!

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.
