XP Pro crash error message - Page 2

post #11 of 26
run memtest and make sure your memory is stable...
if you OCed anything recently, try reversing it...

from personal experience, the only time I received that specific error was when my RAM was messed up/not enough

Not to be a stickler.. but did you update all drivers after running virus and maleware scans?

Driver Detective is not a good program to use. Best say to check drivers is first use windows, then check manu websites. Look at the device manager and check to see what driver version is being used and then make sure you are up to date.

But I will say that Demon has a good point, mem issues can easily cause BSD.

I did and it ran and closed... Nothing came up with errors that I could tell except when it stated it says "F parameter not specified"

How do I know if it comes up with errors? It runs and then closes auto.

Thanks!

Can you tell me now to update all the drivers? Do I have to manually check each and everyone manually? Can you walk me through what to do? Thanks TB!

Ok, grrrrrrr. Im getting really frustrated. I just tried to play COD again and the comp crashed after playing it for only about 4 minutes. I noticed the temp was 45c when I started and was 52C when it crashed?

The problem has got to be the video card, dont ya think? That is the only thing I can think of. Everything esle in my system is new, but this Saphirre GTO2 is a used card.

Any ideas? Thanks folks!

BSOD = Blue Screen of Death

When Win XP is in the middle of scheduling an execution thread, it puts the processor at an interrup request level, or IRQL.....this blocks other software from iterrupting the processor until the process is complete..........this means that even DRIVERS cannot interrupt the current process (physical memory) while the IRQL is in play.........if something breaks the rule, then you get the BSOD.......what you have to do is find out what driver is breaking the rule.....

Does this only happen when you are playing graphically intensive games? If so, definitely start with the video driver. Otherwise, I would start Windows in SAFE mode, uninstall all of the "usual" drivers, and then resinstall fresh drivers, especially with your video card, sound card, USP controller....things like this.

This worked for me when I had that same error.

Did this just start happening?

Try taking out one of your sticks of RAM, playing for a while, and then replace it.

I would set everything back to default settings one click at a time until the problem is resolved. If not, you may consider backing up your system and doing a fresh intall (or repair) of windows XP.

Well, I upped my Saphirre fan speed to 100% and ran COD2 and it played fine for quite some time... no crash. Hmmmmm, what do you think? It doesnt just do it on games, but locks up when surfing the internet too. But the game didnt crash this time....

Well if it didn't crash then I guess thats a good thing..........................If I were you I would still boot windows in safe mode and uninstall/clean/reinstall all of the main drivers.....

I have had a similar problem in the past, it just sorta "went away" which is even more frustrating. I believe your video card is the culprit
