Here's the minidump.  For a long time the culprit was sbp2port.sys - I never solved that one either.  Now it seems to be disk.sys.  Can't find enough information.  I get a BSOD at lease once a day.  I'm using Vista Ultimate.  Thank you.


Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

BugCheck 9F, {3, 88e57ab8, 88e5fad8, 877d0b98}

Probably caused by : disk.sys

Hi there, it seems to be either a faulty hard disk drive or faulty RAM.  Log onto this website and run the test program to check if your RAM is faulty: http://www.memtest86.com/
If it is faulty, then try replacing the RAM first as this is one of the most common causes of BSOD's. If this doesn't resolve the problem, then you more than likely have a faulty hard disk drive. Replace the hard disk drive and reinstall Windows (a long winded process I know but it may be your last resort!)

Hope this helps!
