BSOD just won't die after reinstall. WinXP
Posted on 2006-11-27
Every BSOD error is different. One of them that I still have written down is:
STOP: 0x0000009C (0x8054D370;0xC4104000;0x00000136
Now don't let this fool you, though, because this is one of about seven different STOP messages that come up with the thing. I had it in for viruses, but the machine was so bad that I had no choice but to just reinstall everything, and then go in manually and kill any virus leftovers. I'm positive I haven't missed anything.
Her AntiVirus was expired, so I put AVG on it for her. When the BSODs kept coming, I took it off and told her to get something else for AV protection. I just got a call today that it is still happening. (I had thought taking AVG off had fixed it.) It's been a couple weeks and I dont' have all of the other error messages written down any more. After about a week or so I tend to shred stuff.
The computer is an E-Machine, which in my opinion isn't working any better for them now than it was when they brought it in. :-(
I remember that one other error message was IRQ_Not_Less_OR_Equal. I updated to SP2, put IE7 on it, updated all available service packs, got all the updated drivers from Gateway, checked for leftover virus bits & pieces, checked the fans, etc. I am totally at a loss right now. None of these error messages were coming up before I had it in. (The original symptoms were shutting off all the time.)
(I have no idea how to rank this question. I'm going to go 350. If it's high enough, somone please tell me, as I'm still learning etiquette around here.)
