    - lg dvd +-rw -drive
    - AMD Sempron 2600+
    - Power 350 W Atx
    - OS Windows XP home with all the latest updates

    Especially, when surfing on the net, I get blue screen -errors.

    Here is some info from event viewer

    Error code 100000d1, parameter 1 00000000, parameter 2 00000002, parameter 3 00000001, parameter 4 ffdff167

    Error code 1000008e, parameter 1 c0000005, parameter 2 805c36d9, parameter 3 b1cf7b80, parameter 4 00000000

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    1 of your minidumps crashes at Fastfat.SYS. Fast FAT File System Driver. It has a bugcheck of 23.

    0x00000023: FAT_FILE_SYSTEM

    A problem occurred within a read or write to a FAT16 or FAT32 file system drive. There may be a physical problem with the disk, or an Interrupt Request Packet (IRP) may be corrupted. Other common causes include heavy hard drive fragmentation, heavy file I/O, problems with some types of drive-mirroring software, or some antivirus software. I suggest running ChkDsk or ScanDisk as a first step; then disable all file system filters such as virus scanners, firewall software, or backup utilities. Check the file properties of FASTFAT.SYS to ensure it matches the current OS or SP version. Update all disk, tape backup, CD-ROM, or removable device drivers to the most current versions.

    I didn`t find a minidump with a bugcheck of EA. However, here is the meaning of the EA bugcheck.

    (Click to consult the online Win XP Resource Kit article.)
    A device driver problem has caused the system to pause indefinitely (hang). Typically, this is caused by a display driver waiting for the video hardware to enter an idle state. This might indicate a hardware problem with the video adapter, or a faulty video driver.

    The rest of your minidumps are crashing with bugchecks of 0A/D1/8E

    0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    Typically due to a bad driver, or faulty or incompatible hardware or software. Technically, this error condition means that a kernel-mode process or driver tried to access a memory location to which it did not have permission, or at a kernel Interrupt ReQuest Level (IRQL) that was too high. (A kernel-mode process can access only other processes that have an IRQL lower than, or equal to, its own.)


    The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.


    A kernel mode program generated an exception which the error handler didn’t catch. These are nearly always hardware compatibility issues (which sometimes means a driver issue or a need for a BIOS upgrade).

    Go HERE and follow the instructions for testing your ram/hard drive/page file.
