  1. hi
    im having random bsod's,sometimes not for days then 3-4 in an hour.
    its a gateway laptop running xp 32 but service pack 3.
    radeon x700 gfx 2gb memory.
    it can do it when playing games or just browsing the net.

    can anyone advise me with the mini dumps?

    many thanks
    dave

    All errors are 0xA and these are caused by either hardware or faulty drivers attempting to address an IRQ Level address higher than they are desugned for.

    Basically your dumps only cited Windows OS drivers which are too general to be of muct help.

    However one driver that did stand out is b57xp32.sys is a Broadcom NetXtreme Ethernet NIC driver.

    Go to Gatway's website, find your exact model and update the drivers from there.

    ok well touch wood no bsod yet..ive disabled my wireless with the little button on the laptop.

    checked in device manager in network adaptors i have 3 things:
    1394 net adapter
    broadcom netxtreme gigabit ethernet
    intel(r) pro/wireless 2200bg network connection
