Error code 0000007a

  1. I have been having this problem for quite some time now. After reading other posts, I ran memtest and found that one of my modules were bad, so I removed it. I still get the error. I also ran anti spyware/virus and updated display drivers.

    I am lost and need help please. I am running an HP pavilion a767c w/ XP Pro SP2. The complete error that I receive in event viewer is:

    Error code 0000007a, parameter1 c03dd950, parameter2 c000009a, parameter3 f765432c, parameter4 35790860.

    I have 2 minidumps from the past couple of days attached. Any and all help would be great.

    Your first Minidump points to vsdatant.sys which is of Zone Alarm.

    The second one reads memory corruption. Faulty RAM can cause all kinds of problems. You need to run a MemTest86+ for 10 full passes on all RAM to see if you have any errors.

    I ran memtest for 6 hours and it found no errors. In order to resolve the zone alarm issue, do I have to uninstall it completely or can uninstall and reinstall?

    I would uninstall completely, reboot and then reinstall. Sometime that is all it takes.

    As for MemTest, did you have at least 10 passes?

    I am seeing the same problem and I'm hoping for some help.

    My PC is a custom built P4 with 1GB RAM running on a MSI PM8PM-V (all latest drivers and BIOS/firmware), ATI Radeon 9600 Pro with XP SP2 (all critical updates applied)

    Error code 0000007a, parameter1 c03ddb70, parameter2 c000000e, parameter3 f76dcbb6, parameter4 20b3a860.

    The error has occurred twice - once tonight and the last time exactly two weeks ago. This makes me think it might be some activity that occurs at this time but I don't know what.

    I followed the suggestions posted in the forum before posting: no memory errors, clean PC, defrag has been run, etc.

    Paging space I/O error

    Your PC has I/O at reading the paging space. Probably it is hardware problem of the hard disk or cable. Run chkdsk /r. Check disk cable and re-allocate paging space.

    BTW your windows also install an unstable version of Norton AV which also causes blue screen. You had better upgrade Norton AV as well.

    And to add to what cpc2004 said, your first minidump points to a) Sptd.sys which is a daemon tool issue (I have seen a number of people have issues with this software) and b) atapi.sys with Disk Hardware Error: There was an error with disk hardware.

    Route44 and cpc2004, were both your responses to me?

    Should I open a new thread?

    "Route44 I would uninstall completely, reboot and then reinstall. Sometime that is all it takes.

    As for MemTest, did you have at least 10 passes?"

    I ran MemTest for 10 passes and no errors were found.

    I uninstalled zone alarm and reinstalled. Now the machine is restarting on its own at night usually and it isn't giving me any new mindump files. I also don't see the same error in event viewer but I do see event ID 57 ft disk The system failed to flush data to the transaction log. Corruption may occur.
    and event ID 50 which is a warning : {Delayed Write Failed} Windows was unable to save all the data for the file . The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere.

    Any ideas?
