Memory dump help would be much appreciated

By drjon
Jan 13, 2006
  1. I've just upgraded to CommView 5.1 (as 5.0 used to cause BSODs and they assured me there are completely new drivers in 5.1 that will fix that).However I just had a crash while it was running, so I'd be very keen to find out if it was related to CommView or not. If someone could please spare a few minutes to look at the dump I would appreciate it.
    Details are:
    "The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000c5
    (0xe56570d4, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x8046a992). Microsoft Windows 2000
    [v15.2195]. A dump was saved in: C:\WINNT\MEMORY.DMP."

    (Not attaching the Memory Dump as 400MB :)
    Minidump attached.
    Thanks again
    Jon

    Well does your pc startup after this or does it just hang.
    just go into your BIOS set first startup device to cd-rom
    and than enter your windows installation cd into your drive
    it wil than starup from your cd after that just do a repair maybe it'l help

    Runs fine - I'm just keen to find out why it died so I can work around it to stop it happening again (e.g. update a driver, remove an offending app). It's usually very reliable which is why I'd like to chase this down, especially if it's a Commview issue as that could affect a lot of people.
    Regards

    Of course having said that, on another computer, I just noticed it has rebooted again (someone else had been playing on it and logged it on again, so I hadn't realised).
    I'll include that minidump too. If someone can help with where it's dying I'd be grateful.

    Hi,

    Your windows is w2k sp4 and microsoft does not have the symbolic map for this version. I can't format your minidumps properly. However the full memory dump has the symbolic map. Install mircosoft kd and format the full memory at your windows. The first crash is bugcheck C2 and the second crash is bugcheck 0A. Probably it is caused by faulty ram. Run memtest to stress test the ram.

    Mini011306-01.dmp BugCheck C5, {e56570d4, 2, 1, 8046a992}
    Mini011306-02.dmp BugCheck A, {1c618f2, 2, 1, 80458f9c}


    http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/05/07/Debugging/

    Install Windows Debugging Tools
    1) Create folder c:\symbols
    2) Download and install the http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtools/debugging/installx86.mspx
    3) Locate your latest memory.dmp file- C:\WINNT\memory.dmp
    4) open a CMD prompt and cd\program files\debugging tools for windows\
    5) type the following stuff:

    Code:
    c:\program files\debugging tools>kd -z C:\WINNT\memory.dmp
    kd> .logopen c:\debuglog.txt
    kd> .sympath srv*c:\symbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols
    kd> .reload;!analyze -v;r;kv;lmnt;.logclose;q

    You now have a debuglog.txt in c:\, open it in notepad and post the content to this thread.

    Thanks, that was excellent help and well written. I'm enclosing the file. While I'm at it I don't suppose you could also post a similar instant guide to turning minidumps into human readable form - I always thought that would be useful to know. Also a bonus question - would the same kd commands be the correct ones to use if my XP system had died?
    Thanks again
    Jon.

    Hi,

    KD can analysis minidump at XP, W2k and W2K. From the stack trace of your debug report, the culprit is faulty memory.

    I would like to ask why do you think it is faulty memory? I still think it's the Commview 5.1 drivers (The problems started when I installed it, I have uninstalled it and it's been stable ever since, but I'd really like to use it so would be nice to be sure).
    Regards

    Hi,

    From the stack trace, I can't find footprint of commview and it is reason why I think it is faulty ram. If commview corrupt the memory, who knows. You can try "last known good config" to restore windows, if it is device driver problem.

    Here is a dump file

    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
    An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
    caused by drivers using improper addresses.
    If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: 817ffff6, memory referenced
    Arg2: 00000002, IRQL
    Arg3: 00000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation

    I had this same problem, then I updated my video card drivers and it went away.

    The problem here turned out to be ts_lb.sys, which is the part of CommView that identifies which process is sending network traffic.

    I've been chasing them over it and after a couple of even more dud versions their latest effort seems good so far.

    I've also worked out how to read memory dumps, which will be handy (though hopefully not too handy).

    Hi Drjon,

    From the stack trace we cannot find the footprint of ts_lb.sys. If ts_lb.sys corrupt the windows storage, we cannot find out the culprit unless we install a storage alternation trap to catch the culprit on the spot. For example, some version of ZoneAlarm caused blue screen problem, but most users with the same version do not encounter blue screen problem. Probably ZoneAlarm and some device driver use same piece of common system storage. ZA thinks it is owner of the storage and other device driver such as eMule also thinks it is owner of the storage. When emule is active and corrupt the storage of ZA. Consequently ZA accesses the corrupted storage and windows crashes.

    I'm glad to know that your problem is resolved and thanks for your information.
