  1. XP BSOD plz help me [have minidumps]

    Hey all great forum you have here :) Hopefully I can get my problem fixed :)

    Computer Specs
    Asus A8n-Sli Deluxe
    2x Geforce 6800U in SLI
    amd athlon 64 fx-55
    SB Audigy 2 ZS
    2x DiamondMax 10 200GB
    OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 Platinum Revision 2
    OCZ Powerstream 600w

    I've gotten different errors now such as:

    but not sure which is which. I first started getting the error because daemon tools had a leftover file/driver which stopped me from having windows start up at all. Now that It starts sometimes I get random errors and sometimes its right at startup. I noticed it happens more when I have my ethernet card in.. maybe it has something to do with the internet? Sometimes on startup checkdisk starts running and it said I had 0 bad sectors if that helps any. I've also gotten errors in umpnpmgr.dll on startup but haven't seen that error message since I fixed the problem with daemon tools. I saw a thread in another forum where left over Roxio files caused the problem with daemon tools.. I recently uninstalled Nero 7 Premium because it was loaded with a bunch of stuff that I didn't need.. maybe there are leftover files? Please take a look at my minidumps I included 6 of them so hopefully thats enough :( Thanks guys

    here are the 6minidumps

    is this worth formatting or is this fixable?

    I removed 1 of the ram chips which stopped me from getting BSOD alot sooner but now I'm getting alot more errors :(
    I'm getting some like
    Windows Explorer errors when I play videos
    Kaspersky Anti Virus Error
    (The anti-virus service is not running or an error occurred in its operation. You are advised to contact your system administrator if the anti-virus functionality is not recovered soon)
    Random Program crashing

    Is this an easy fix? I have alot of important information that I'm worried about so I'm hoping its not a hard drive error or something that would take a while to fix.. thx

    One cause of the crashes csrss.exe is the main executable for the Microsoft Client/Server Runtime Server Subsystem. This process manages most graphical commands in Windows. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

    Note: csrss.exe could also be a process which is registered as a trojan. This Trojan allows attackers to access your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. It could also be a registered security risk and should be removed immediately.

    Determining whether this process is a virus or a legitimate Windows process depends on the directory location it executes or runs from in WinTasks.

    Another crash is caused by Kmixer.sys try this fix here

    Another cause is your anti-virus program read this this and apply the patch.

    Another cause NTKRNLPA.EXE is a part of Microsoft Windows Kernel. According to everything I read some of the problems with the corruption of these fils could be caused by Spyware/Malware. HAve you checked your system with HijackThis or AdAware? If replacing or patching those files does not work then once any and all spyware is removed a Windows repair or Clean install would be the best thing to do to solve the problems.

    both of those fixes for the kmixer and antivirus say its for win2000... should i still do it or would an xp reinstall work?

    If it's a software specific driver crash then a Windows repair won't fix it. I would try the patches and see if they work.

    Just backup what you need onto dvd's if you have a burner that's the easiest way unless you have another hard drive.

    can you please loko at my recent minidumps.. seems like its starting back again and i am just wondeirng if its safe to reinstall windows now without errors?
    it found spyware in a shell replacement that i use which is blackbox so i let it quarantine the file and thats when i was able to get on normally but that doesnt seem right since ive been using it for about a year now without this problem..

    I would suggest reinstalling Windows. The crashes are from different sources, memory corruption, vsdatant.sys which is a Zone Alarm driver and ntkrnlpa.exe a windows file. Try a reinstall of Windows and if the crashes continue change out your memory modules. Have you tried to runthe system file checker? Start, Run type sfc.exe /scannow

    i wasnt able to run memtest earlier since i couldnt get a working floppy but I just got 1 and when i started scanning both my chips i immediately saw thousands and thousands of errors.. it went as high as 30,000 errors so i scanned each 1 and the chip that was giving me the errors has a dark spot on 1 of the gold edges so im guessing it fried.. how do i stop this from happening to my other chip? and would this be the cause to all those other problems? i havent been on long since i just started my computer but i will see how it goes.. if this wa the problem and i've taken the chip out u think its safe to do a clean install now?

    another question :bounce: once i format my drive how do i partition the my main hard drive so windows xp is on its own partition and the rest of the files on everything else? if its possible.. could i have
    Windows XP on one partition
    photoshop/illustrator/dreamweaver/etc.. programs on one partition
    music on one partition
    is this possible? Will this effect the performance of my hard drive any or will it just make it easier for me to format next time i have a problem?
