  1. Hi,

    My computer keeps auto reboot, I have tried all the methods posted by Techspot.

    My computer’s specs
    CPU:AMD Athlon 4200+
    MB:M2A-VM
    RAM:DDR2, 1G
    OS: XP SP2
    PSU: Antec Sonata 3 550W

    Message from the Event view,
    Error code 10000050, parameter1 ba7d6000, parameter2 00000001, parameter3 82f00012, parameter4 00000000.

    I have Cleared the "Automatically restart" check box, but still can not see BSOD, it will reboot anyway.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Emita

    Inside the MiniDumps:
    ------------------------------------------
    BugCheck 10000050, {d7a9eaa4, 0, 84b59fd7, 0}
    Could not read faulting driver name
    Probably caused by : ntkrpamp.exe ( nt!KiFastCallEntry+fc )

    BugCheck 10000050, {ba7d6000, 1, 82f00012, 0}
    Could not read faulting driver name
    Probably caused by : ntkrpamp.exe ( nt!KiFastCallEntry+fc )
    Followup: MachineOwner
    ------------------------------------------
    Both refer to ntkrpamp.exe: Windows NT & kernel system file
    and
    BugCheck 10000050

    Most likely cause is faulty/mismatched Ram, please run Memtest to confirm

    Can also be your system drivers are Not up to date, please update all drivers

    Can also be Page File not set correctly:
    1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
    2. Double-click System.
    3. Click the Advanced tab.
    4. Click Performance Options.
    5. Click Change.
    6. Click the drive on which you want to modify the paging file.
    7. Click System Managed Size.
    8. Click OK, click OK, and then click OK.

    Please reply back after adjustments and test of Ram

    Thanks for help

    I already did Memtest and it has 6 passed .

    I have updated the BIOS and Display Driver to new latest.

    I just did the pagefile set by following your instructions.

    I will run it for while to see if it will crash or not and will post the results.

    Thanks again.

    That's nice :)

    Also I'd also recommend downloading and running CCleaner you'd be amazed how all this junk accumulates, and causes system slow downs.

    On that note, you may also want to defrag

    Here's another handy tool. Startup Control Panel, to remove non-needed system startups.

    Doing all this optimizing will surely help your computer, whatever the case
    And is also a good running test

    Do a full Memtest (Run memtest at least 7 times for a thorough test.)

    thanks

    I have run the Memtest for 6 hours, no errors found.
    Also I reset the Pagefile again.

    Will run it to see how long to see another reboot.

    Hi,

    I run sigverif at command line and found the one simillar file are not sighned .

    ntkrnlpa.exe 8/3/2004 5.1.2600.2180 Not Signed N/A

    Could this be the cause?

    No it doesn't matter it's not signed although it should be, being a Windows file in the first place (I'm debating with myself)

    Anyway, one last option would be to run a repair on Windows

    Don't bother replacing it, someone else did, and it didn't work. But repair did

    OK, I will try to repair it to see what happens.

    The Repair Installation works great so far. (No more not signed system files)

    I think If nothing wrong with the hardware it should fix the Reboot problems.

    thank you very much for the help.

    Great news - So Far

    Please supply updates as you go along.

    By the way, the only issue under Repair
    Is that you will need to do all Windows Security Updates again
    And you will need your product key

    Maybe I should've mentioned that! But the real issue is fixing the fault.

    The computer works very well for quit a few days since the Repair installations.

    Now it got a new problem, while doing normal work, word, Internet etc, the monitor went black with no responding to the keyboard, the monitor's signal LED’s still green, it happened 2 times since then.

    The only way is to manual restarting the computer.

    Checked Event log, no errors and warnings in there.

    Don’t know it normal or not.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    You could try to test your ram with Memtest, located HERE

    It sounds like a hardware fault, I'd also unplug any not required external device

    Please also do this:

    Manual steps to run Chkdsk from My Computer or Windows Explorer
    • Open My Computer, and then right-click the hard disk that you want to check.
    • Click Properties, and then click Tools.
    • Under Error-checking, click Check Now. A dialog box that shows the Check disk options is displayed
    Use one of the following procedures:
    • • To run Chkdsk in read-only mode, click Start.
    • • To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, select the Automatically fix file system errors check box, and then click Start. (tick)
    • • To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box.

    Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message:
    Click Yes to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

    Wait until Chkdsk finishes Checking / Repairing any faults
    Windows will then either restart your computer or continue loading Normally.

    I did the Hard drive Check and it restarted normally. Did not see the test results if it has bad sectors or something.

    Will let it run for a while.

    Thanks
