Sysdata.xml BsoD

  1. Can anyone tell me what the sysdata.xml and minixxxxxx-xx.dmp files are all about?

    I have a Sony Vaio that is a couple of years old that is crashing, particularly when loading a internet browser (dosent seem to mater what type Firefox/IE). I've turned off auto reboot and the BsoD sows a "multiple_irp_complete_requests" error.

    I used memtest with no errors and updated the drivers, clean XP pro install, etc. with no luck

    Any help in figuring out what's going on would be appreciated.

    Ok, the sysdata.xml is a file that holds information about your computer when it has just recently crashed and the dmp files contain more informative (although unrecognisable) information on the technical problem that has been caused.

    Normally this is a hardware issue, but its always good to check the system logs by typing EventVwr.msc in a run box, and just select system.

    The random crashes can be related to a number of hardware issues. But this may be a good way to have a little more information on the situation that others can help you on. :)

    Sorry it's not much but it's a start.
