Random restart stop code needs decyphered

  1. I have been getting rasndom restarts in Windows XP. I have disabled the auto-restart to get the stop code and here it is:

    Stop: Ox00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xF3918648, 0xF3918344, 0xF9D42928) NtFS.sys-address F9D42928 base at F9D40000, datestamp 41107eea

    Knowledge base tells me this 0x24 code is related to the NTFS sys file, but what does that really mean?

    Things it is not:
    Overheating - checked
    Drivers - one new one since this started happening, now removed hardware but still happening.

    Could this be faulty RAM?

    I would appreciate anyone who could help with this.

    Run chkdsk /r. If BSOD still occurs, most probably it is faulty RAM. Reseat the memory to another memory slot or downclock the the RAM.

    Pretty much what I thought

    Yep, that's what I was going to do. Just wondered if anyone could decypher the four paramaters in the stop code to tell if there was an offending program or memory address?

    oh i love memory errors...yeah, try turning the clocking down. I've done my pc3200 at 400mhz before...that it's RATED at...and my mobo just freaked out on it, beeped like all hell, had to reset the CMOS.
