I have recently started getting some blue screen errors on my Windows 2003 server. The relevant details of the blue screen are as follows:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
***STOP: 0x0000007A (0xC03859D8, 0xC000009A, 0xE167E64, 0x659A880)
Dumping physical memory to disk 35
I was wondering whether anybody had any ideas where I might start looking to solve this problem. According to Microsoft, they say that:
"STOP Messages 0x00000077 and 0x0000007A are related kernel traps that are caused when the operating system tries to load a page into memory from the paging file on the hard disk, but cannot access the page because of either a software or hardware failure.
If you experience this issue more than one time, contact your computer or hard disk vendor. "
and, more specifically:
"0xC000009C STATUS_DEVICE_DATA_ERROR, generally due to bad block on the drive."
I am running two 250gb SATA disks in a RAID1 format, with 50gb allocated to the C: (system) partition and the rest for our data.
- Should I run disk diagnostics over this to see if it can find the bad block? If so, what utility do you recommend?
- Is there a problem with my Pagefile or RAM?
Thanks in advance!
