  1. Hi There
    I had a problem with BSOD on Windows XP Pro SP2 which I thought I'd cured buy re-installing Windows, but I was wrong!
    I'm still getting BSOD, it happened yesterday while trying to use windows search Here is the message:

    STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000000, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x000000000)

    I did some research on the web and everything I found points to bad memory. Then 10 minutes later another BSOD with this message:

    STOP: 0x0000000A (0x9BCBBF10, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x804E8617)

    Everything I read about this message seemed a bit vague as to what it was, it could be memory, software or drivers???

    My system is brand new and consists of:

    Pentium D945
    ASrock 4CoreDual-VSTA motherboard
    1 GB 400mhz ram
    3Dlabs Wildcat VP880 Pro
    400 watt PSU

    If I post my latest minidumps would somebody please be kind enough to read them and point me in the right direction. I'll keep looking on the net and trying to sort the problem myself as much as I can but if some kind person could give me a clus I would be very greatful.

    Kindest Regards

    help reading minidumps

    Hi Howard
    Thank you for replying.
    I yes I read that the first time just after I built the PC and it started giving BSOD. I've run memtest for about 3 hours, Microsfts memory tester for the same length of time and the windows version of memtest. I also tried Prime95 which gave 1 error, but I've ran several times since and have had no errors.
    I'm trying my best to find the solution but I'm hitting a brick wall so far, my only thoughts are it's either memory or my 3Dlabs graphics card as windows says that the drivers are not signed??
    That's why I've posted again to see if somebody would read some of my minidumps to try and steer me in the right direction.......HELP!

    Kindest Regards

    Your minidumps are crashing with various culprits. Therefore I think your problem may be hardware related. I`d guess it`s either your video card drivers or the video card itself that`s the problem. There`s also a chance it could be a ram or failing psu problem.

    Regards Howard :)

    Hi Howard

    Many thanks for that. I'll order some more ram, then I'll try another graphics card.
    I have a Nvidia Quadro card, the drivers for that are signed for XP so maybe it will work beter.
    It's a brand new PSU but I have a spare just in case so if all else fails I'll try that.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Kindest Regards
