  1. Hi guys,

    I have purchased a comp 2 months back with the configuration listed below. In the beginning whenever I start Acrobat the comp used to restart. Later when ever I used to play nfsug it restarted. Recently, if I start any download from any site, it is restarting with an error notice that accounts the problem to some hardware or software installation problem. I am running windows mediaceter edition on my comp.


    Mother board: ASUS K8SMX
    Processor : AMD Athlon 64 bit processor
    RAM : 512MB Hynix RAM
    Hard disk : Seagate

    Can anyone help me regarding this problem please?

    When Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 and a minidump to the folder \windows\minidump
    Check system event 1001 and it has the content of the blue screen

    Event ID: 1001
    Source: Save Dump
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.The bugcheck was : 0xc000000a (0xe1270188, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804032100).
    Microsoft Windows..... A dump was saved in: .......

    Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001. Copy the content and paste it back here

    Zip 5 to 6 minidumps and attach the zip files here. I will study the dump and find out the culprit.

    Thanks a lot for giving me some hope of solving my problem.This is the information i was able to find in the event viewer with id 1001.

    One thing I forgot to mention previously was that my motherboard chipset is
    sis. Same problem is faced by my friend with this chipset. But guys with via chipset motherboards do not find any problem with their comps. Could the problem be due to this??

    Description:The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x40000080 (0x84fa5ad0, 0x84ca6120, 0x80548d8c, 0x00000001). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP.

    This is only one of the error messages displayed. There are lot of events with code 1001.

    I am also attatching the dump files with this.

    Thanks a lot for the information but I am very sorry to say you that I was not able to understand the problem. Could u restate the problem in simple terms please.

    But when I gave the path \system32\drivers\SiSGbeXP.sys ; it said that the application cannot be run in win 32 mode but not "Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\SiSGbeXP.sys....."

    XP has thousands of device drivers. I can only diagnostic your problem but I don't know how to resolve your problem. I've searched google and no similar hit. Maybe you are first person in the world enounter this problem. You had better contact the vendor of your motherboard and ask for help.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Please start a new thread in the Windows OS forum.

    The reason for this is. We used to get minidump threads that were many pages long, and they became very confusing, and hard to read.

    I will then check your minidumps for you. Thanks.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
