Random restarts...

  1. Well, for some reason, a few days ago my computer started randomly restarting. There seemed to be no rhyme or reason to why it did it, it happened when programs were running, when it was just sitting there, anything.

    Anyway, at first I thought it was a virus but after using various programs to detect viruses, it seems it most likely isn't...So I turned off the automatic shut down and let myself see the blue screen of death and THIS is what came up.

    ***Stop: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x8054B339, 0xB6595BA4, 0x00000000)

    If you need my system specs, just tell me.

    Welcome to Techspot!
    BSOD's don't always tell much .Check in System/Application event viewer see if you have some Error messages. You can also check/start Dr Watson.log's

    Yes, there are error messages in the System log...how should I convey them?

    Just post the Red ones and just a few as close to the time as the BSOD as you can.

    8054B339 is the instruction address and it is ntoskrnel (ie windows kernel). The root cause maybe faulty ram or faulty device driver. I have to examine the stack trace of your minidump in order to find out the culprit. When Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 or 1003 and a minidump to the folder \windows\minidump. Check system event 1001 and 1003 and it has the content of the blue screen.

    Event ID: 1001
    Source: Save Dump
    Description:
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.The bugcheck was : 0xc000000a (0xe1270188, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804032100).
    Microsoft Windows..... A dump was saved in: .......


    Event Source: System Error
    Event Category: (102)
    Event ID: 1003
    Description:
    Error code 1000007f, parameter1 0000000d, parameter2 00000000, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000

    Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001/1003. Copy the content and paste it back here

    Zip 5 to 6 minidumps to one zip file and attach it here. Techspot has a upper limit of 100K per attachment. I will study the dump and find out the culprit.

    You rock so hard The most recent one is listed first, although there are a total of 6 that are event 1001s. I didn't see any 1003. I also included the requested zip with 3 of the minidumps, the most recent 3. I could only, unfortunatly, fit 3.

    Your problems have multiple culprit.

    1) outdated nVidia Display card driver
    nv4_disp.dll Tue Oct 07 08:03:41 2003 (3F8202DD)
    Suggestion
    1) install nVidia Display card version 61.77
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_61.77.html
    2) If BSOD still occurs, reseat memory module to another memory slot
