    Hi Makieddie

    After further investigation of your minidump, I believe that it is faulty ram. Reseat the memory stick to another memory slot. Clean the dust within the computer case. Make sure that the CPU does not overheat. If the problem still occurs, diagnostic which ram stick is malfunction.

    Thanx very, very much I will do those things. I already investigated whether its overheating, the errors can occur immediately after turning on. Its not near a radiator either, and that temp thing in the bios never says its over heating. How do I diagnostic the ram stick? I feel like I'm burdening you with my problem....but this may be light at the end of the tunnel!!

    Thanx once again...

    Overclocking problems!

    Hi cpc2004,

    After your affirmation, I tested both of my 512Mb DDR 333 RAM with MemTest86 and they passed the tests (many passes). I had first tried to test the RAM individually, but it would still crash.

    So, I went in the BIOS and decreased the clocking to Manual instead of 2.4GHz. Since then it didn't crash. It is just weird cause it always been runnin fine at 2.4GHz when I had 768Mb of DDR 333. Now that I have 1024Mb it won't work.

    Thanks tho, it gave me a better idea where the problem was originating from. And btw, the hidden ads and links create slow loading and browsing in the forums.

    Sounds like I'm having the same problem...

    Hi !

    After reading this thread, it seems I might finally get rid of the problem that's been bothering me for a while now.

    At first I encountered frequent reboots which I thought might come from an overheating problem. It happens generally during hot days and when I let the computer open things seem to improve...

    But recently I've been getting a blue screen with the famous "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal" quite frequently.
    My log says :
    The system event of COM+ has detected a bad return code while its internal processing. HRESULT is C0000005 from line 44 of d:\qxp_slp\com\com1x\src\events\tier1\eventsystemobj.cpp. Contact Microsoft tech support to report the error.

    If anyone could help me decrypt my minidumps that would help greatly !! I could at least make some progress in troubleshooting this.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    Struck by the BSOD

    My Acer 1522 Wlmi laptop has fallen in the clutches of the BSOD. I would be very grateful for any help you are willing to provide. The eventviewer gave me the following info:

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x100000d1 (0xfdac5000, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xf7fe8b7b). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini091805-01.dmp.

    Error code 100000d1, parameter1 fa6f3000, parameter2 00000002, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 f7f66b7b.

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi lilimali,

    Faulty ram is the culprit and aslo you have to check the CPU to make sure that it is overheat

    An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
    interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
    caused by drivers using improper addresses.
    If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
    Arg1: 9dc0287a, memory referenced
    Arg2: 00000002, IRQL
    Arg3: 00000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    Arg4: 804edb18, address which referenced memory

    Attach 5 to 6 minidumps here. Maybe I can find out which hardware component is malfunction.

    Help me!

    Hello, I found this thread while reading up on my latest plague.
    I think I've figured out how you want the dumps uploaded but scream if you want it some other way.
    Here they are and thanks beforehand.

    Hi Hubu,

    Your WIndows' crash is weired. Definitely it is hardware problem. Most probably it is faulty M/B as most of the crashes are related to instruction misaligned. But I cannot eliminate the possibility of faulty ram.

    BTW your windows patch level SP1 at 2002 which is three years behind. You had better upgrade the your windows to patch level to at least 2004 or latest patch level.

    Thanks for the help man, it might help a tad with a story behind it all:
    See, thing is, I bought this computer from a friend whom was moving out and had to sell it(It's about 1 year old now) and while he had it, he had no hardware-problems at all. Only thing I did since the crashes started was adding a floppy-drive to re-format(S-ATA HDD). These random crashes have been occuring ever since. I switched the motherboard, added a new fan to the graphicscard(old was bad, had to use a table-fan to keep it from not shutting down PC while gaming), new CPU-fan, new chassi. The only thing which wasn't replaced was the RAM. And they weren't failing when my friend had it.
    I've been trying to use windows update but the computer decides to crash in the middle of it, so puke: , I'll try to update my SP and sorts and give you new minidumps.

    Oh and yeah, I don't know if you can tell from the dumps but I also get random program crashes, some just shut down some get's the "Windows has encountered an error.." or whatever.

    On a side-note: I left it on while out with some friend for about 6 hours, 2 crashes during this time and no activity. How come?

    Thanks again!
