BSOD with system error 1003 in Windows XP SP1

By Nazca
Jan 10, 2006
  1. Hi all,
    please could someone help me identifying the origin of the BSOD in my PC?

    The computer is a DELL Latitude D600 with Windows XP professional SP1.
    And during the the last month I am getting a Blue Screen with System Error 1003 every some days.

    Looking into the eventviewer I see the following:
    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: System Error
    Event Category: (102)
    Event ID: 1003
    Date: 1/10/2006
    Time: 5:00:25 PM
    User: N/A
    Computer: RODRIGUEZJC1
    Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c0000005, parameter2 bf833d5c, parameter3 f1a34c94, parameter4 00000000.

    And I am also attaching the minidump files created with the BSOD.

    Please could someone help trying to identify the source of the problem?

    I ran a memory test, but all seems to be Ok in that part, not errors were found. And I have not added new hardware to the computer in the last months, so I suspect that the cause can be a driver or software.
    Any help is welcomed.

    Thanks in advance !!!

    1 minidump crashes at TEC2PS.DLL. I can`t find any info for this DLL file. It has a bugcheck of 8E.

    3 minidumps crash with a bugcheck of 218.

    0xC0000218: UNKNOWN_HARD_ERROR

    A necessary Registry hive file couldn’t be loaded. The file may be corrupt or missing (requiring either an Emergency Repair Disk or a Windows reinstallation). The Registry files may have been corrupted because of hard disk corruption or some other hardware problem. A driver may have corrupted the Registry data while loading into memory, or the memory where the Registry is loading may have a parity error (turn off the external cache and check the physical RAM).


    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).

    See HERE for more info about your stop errors. Particularly the 218 error.

    Regards Howard :)
