    I am getting a BSOD. THe screen says

    ( many zeros then 7F, many zeros then D, many zeros, many zeros, many zeros)

    Can anyone help please?

    Thanks

    Bugcheck 7F, {D, 0, 0, 0} is usually related to faulty hardware. Test your RAM with Memtest.

    My machine has four drives and each one has Win2000 installed. The rest are working fine. Only C drive is giving the BSOD, can it still be a hardware problem?


    I have attached a txt file for the dump check analysis.

    That dump's blaming arcm_x86.sys, which looks to be an Areca SATA PCI RAID Card Driver. See if there's an update available.

    Still BSOD

    Hi,
    I replaced that drive (with great difficulty because the comp. was restarting every 5 min even in Safe Mode). The BSOD is still there and now the dmp file is different. I have attached it.

    Thanks
