A very special situation!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey OC long time no see,

I got a very interesting little puzzle for some of you guys out there, here at my place of employment we have a game called Beatmania IIDX that basically runs out of a Windows XP based box, take in note that the game has run fine for 2 years with no software problems (just the occasional stuck token). Just recently buring the boot screen into the windows xp loader it BSODs something awful. It currently throws :

a problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

CONFIG_LIST_FAILED If this is the first time you have seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced start-up options, and then select safe mode.

Technical information:

***Stop: 0x00000073 (0x00000001,0xC000017D,0x00000004,0xBAF82BB8)

---------------------------------------------

Now I have done some research into the issue and many people have had successes with adding ram and clearing hard drive space, some even suggest that the error throws when there isn't enough hard drive or RAM space. This is where things get interesting, how is it an out of space error flags when nothing should have changed in 2 years? I have thought of a dead RAM board but wouldn't that flag errors other than this one?


TLR : config_list_failed bluescreen, unchanged machine. ***x!

Can you access recovery console? I would recommend running chkdsk and attempting to pull the SMART data to check for a bad hard drive. If that yields nothing then you may want to consider running a full surface scan.

Recovery console via Windows XP disk? or is there another way?

I haven't used XP in forever, but I think if you select advanced boot options or something like that It'll bring up the option. Usually you have to hit like f8 or something on start-up.
You may also want to check out the Ultimate Boot CD as it has many helpful tools and utilities on it that may aide you in your diagnosis.
