  1. Hi everyone !

    3 days ago my pc begun to display he BSOD a few minutes after startup.
    I have tried memtest, I even repaired XP but the BSOD is still after me like a curse.
    I have just found this forum and you are my last hope !

    you can download my dmp at : www[DOT]box.net[SLASH]shared[SLASH]7bxvnbvkdi

    As you will see the analyse of the .dmp tell almost nothing about what caused the stop....

    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: f347980e, The address that the exception occurred at
    Arg3: b8231a20, Trap Frame
    Arg4: 00000000
    Debugging Details:
    EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 - L'instruction   "0x%08lx" emploie l'adresse m moire "0x%08lx". La m moire ne peut pas  tre "%s".
    f347980e ??              ???

    does anyone know how to find what's causing it ??

    0x8E errors are almost always caused by hardware and are especially a strong indicator of corrupted memory. How many Passes did you allow Memtest to run?

    Also, please give us your system specs along with the security software you are running.

    At this point no onthe video memory. Memtest needs to run a minimum of 7 Passes and if you run it for more so much the better.

    To run memtest, do I need to burn it to a CD or put it in a floppy disc?

    Ok I ran memtest all night, which makes 14 passes, and no errors were detected.

    I also checked for viruses and malware in safe mode, there were some but the BSOD kept coming at each startup.

    As I told you I repaired XP and it seemed that it's when windows does some auto-updates that the BSOD comes.
    I set back to a restauration point and disabled auto-updates. Now the BSOD is gone. But I have SP2 without any update, and the problems is some programs don't run very well :/
    Also i thinks it's a bad thing for my computer's safety isn't it ?

    Here is the question that needs to be answered: Are you fully free of infection? Certain viruses, et.al. will often attempt to prevent updating of any kind or they will attempt to abort any security software from carrying out their tasks.

    I suggest going to the Virus and Removal forum, read the Updated 8 Step sticky, follow the steps -- do them all. And then post there with the three required logs attached.

    Then update to SP 3.
