  1. HELP!

    More frequent BSODs on Vista 64bit system

    ntfs.sys - Address FFFFFA6001AC5E56 base at FFFFFA6001A08000, Datestamp 49e022ca

    Stop: 0x00000024 (0x00000000001904AA, 0xFFFFFA6010995918, 0xFFFFFA60109952F0, 0xFFFFFA6001AC5E56)

    Is there anyplace to decipher all these obscure numbers and code? I think I may have other driver issues (Nvidia) causing blue screen problems too. What is the best manner for tracking down and fixing the culprits?

    Thanks for anyones response!

    This is the description of the error you have received.

    A problem occurred within NTFS.SYS, the driver file that allows the system to read and write to NTFS file system drives. There may be a physical problem with the disk, or an Interrupt Request Packet (IRP) may be corrupted. Other common causes include heavy hard drive fragmentation, heavy file I/O, problems with some types of drive-mirroring software, or some antivirus software. I suggest running ChkDsk or ScanDisk as a first step; then disable all file system filters such as virus scanners, firewall software, or backup utilities. Check the file properties of NTFS.SYS to ensure it matches the current OS or SP version. Update all disk, tape backup, CD-ROM, or removable device drivers to the most current versions.
