Can someone analyze this dmp file?

I have a user with a HP nc8230 laptop. Worked fine until today when he closed Windows Media Player and system rebooted. He had MS Word open and after the reboot he could not maximize the file from the tray. He was also working from an addtional monitor so I got him to change a few settings and then the word file was ok and he was able to view normally.

I checked the event viewer and there was a system error. Ran the debugger tool and got the following. Any idea of what the problem is?

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: c0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: 806d0753, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: f6bc5c28, Exception Record Address
Arg4: f6bc5924, Context Record Address

I officially have no idea about this stuff:  So why am I posting?  I found someone else with your problem and they narrowed it down to a memory problem.  Replacing the machines ram seemed to fix it.  Worth a try?  Got a similar system you can just swap memory with?  

I doubt it...but hope it helps.

IMAGE_NAME:  ntkrnlpa.exe

That is what failed.  That is your Kernel for Windows.  I also seen a few Memory Errors as well.

The instruction at "0x%08lx" referenced memory at "0x%08lx". The memory could not be "%s".

My first suggestion is to run MemTest86.


Download the LiveCD burn it and run it for at least 4 hours to see if you get any errors.  If not then the RAM is fine.  

After that you will have to do a repair install of Windows XP with the CD to reapir the Kernel issue.

authen-tech, I do have other systems of the same model that I could swap RAM with so that may be an option.

Makaveli213, I think I will try that MemTest86 tonight and see what happens.

Does anyone know what ntkrnlpa.exe is?

I stated in teh beginning of my last response.  It is the Kernel for Windows.

ntkrnlpa.exe - ntkrnlpa process information
Process name: NT Kernel & System


It is a mandatory file.  Even more so than explorer.exe which is the user interface.  Without the Kernel Windows can not even load, like you see.  The Kernel is the heart of the Operating System.

Ran the Memtest without any errors.

Then i would suggest trying to do a repair install.  I gave a link to specific instructions in my first response.

Don't know if the repair worked or not. No crash since.
