XP Pro Random Reboot, Not RAM, Possibly HD Controller?

  1. Hi,

    For the past 4 days i have been trying to resolve the issue of my custom built system rebooting at random intervals. I have had one too many minidumps and when i looked at them i was not sure what the issue is.

    Before all of this my system was running fine since December of 2005.

    Here are my specs below:

    Win XP Pro SP2
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Manchester 2.0GHz Socket 939
    CORSAIR XMS 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)
    GIGABYTE GA-K8N Pro-SLI Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard with 1394b
    2 POWERCOLOR R43CA-GD3D Radeon X800GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Cards

    An extra PCI ATA adapter (total of 4 HD drives connected)

    -Initially I scoured through this forum, was able to read my minidumps. Ran Memtest86+ overnight (13 hours), no errors.

    -Reinstalled XP Pro Sp2 on a seperate drive, now it hangs at Bootup.

    I have attached my minidumps BEFORE i reinstalled XP Pro sp2.

    Hi,

    Your windows is crashed with different bugcheck and it is symptom of faulty hardware. Probably the RAM is bad. Run memtest to stress test the ram.

    Mini011307-07.dmp BugCheck 1000000A, {bb33c860, 2, 0, 80508713}
    Probably caused by : SYMTDI.SYS ( SYMTDI+13e46 )

    Mini011307-08.dmp BugCheck 1000000A, {b1ce2110, 2, 0, 80505809}
    Probably caused by : PCANDIS5.SYS ( PCANDIS5+1def )

    Mini011307-09.dmp BugCheck 4E, {7, 9534, 1, 0}
    Probably caused by : win32k.sys ( win32k!ldevLoadImage+1b5 )

    Mini011307-10.dmp BugCheck C2, {7, cd4, 2100007, 882ab300}
    Probably caused by : ntkrpamp.exe ( nt!ExFreePoolWithTag+2a3 )

    Mini011307-11.dmp BugCheck 1000000A, {c086fa5c, 2, 0, 80508382}
    Probably caused by : TDI.SYS ( TDI!CTEpEventHandler+32 )

    You have two memory module. Take out one memory module and start windows as usual. If your windows does not crash, the remove memory module is faulty.
