    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    2 minidumps crash with memory corruption and a bugcheck of 4E.

    2 minidumps crash at ntoskrnl.exe. windows bootup kernel. They have bugchecks of 0A.

    2 minidumps crash at w29n51.sys. Wireless network card. They have bugchecks of D1 and 8E.

    1 minidump crashes at Ntfs.sys. Windows file system driver. It has a bugcheck of 50.

    Update your wireless card drivers.

    Also, go HERE and follow the instructions.

    You can find the meaning of your bugcheck codes HERE.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Your latest batch of minidumps crash with the following.

    2 with win32k.sys and bugchecks of 8E and 0A. Multi-User Win32 Driver


    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).

    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.)

    1 with ntoskrnl.exe and a bugcheck of 51. Windows bootup kernel.

    0x00000051: REGISTRY_ERROR

    This indicates a Registry or Configuration Manager problem. An I/O error may have occurred while the Registry was trying to read one of its files (caused by hardware or file system problems). This message might also appear due to a memory management error (more common in earlier versions of Windows NT).

    1 aswMon2.SYS and a bugcheck of 50. Avast File System Filter Driver for Windows XP.


    Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card).

    If you`re sure that your ram is ok, maybe you should check to see if your psu is putting out enough power for your system. Also, check your mobo`s capacitors for bulging or leaking. See HERE for further info.

    Regards Howard :)

    Just make sure all your drivers are upto date. If that doesn`t help, I suspect some kind of hardware problem or overheating. In which case it might be a good idea to have your laptop looked at.

    Regards Howard :)
