Help! Computer randomly restarts and/or powers off UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP_M

By skilletrx
Mar 25, 2006

    Hey guys, I need help w/ my BSOD, I never get the blue screen, my computer just randomly reboots/andor/ powers off when it wants to... so I had to run the debugger to get the BSOD information. I have pasted the debug info below. This is on a new fresh xp install, no drivers are updated. Used several RAM modules, and the funny thing is, no matter what I DDR module I test... the computer will always just power off in the middle of the RAM test (I used MS, not memtest86's prog). I've thought about updating the BIOS but on my motherboards site, the version that is posted is lower than the current one I have. My mobo is the MSI 661FM2-V. I have all the windows updates, thanks in advance for your help this has baffled me for a few weeks now, thought I'd get the world on this matter ;)

    This means a trap occurred in kernel mode, and it's a trap of a kind
    that the kernel isn't allowed to have/catch (bound trap) or that
    is always instant death (double fault). The first number in the
    bugcheck params is the number of the trap (8 = double fault, etc)
    Consult an Intel x86 family manual to learn more about what these
    traps are. Here is a *portion* of those codes:
    If kv shows a taskGate
    use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv.
    Else if kv shows a trapframe
    use .trap on that value
    .trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken
    (on x86, this will be the ebp that goes with the procedure KiTrap)
    kb will then show the corrected stack.

    try testing one ram module first, with the other one removed, and then test the other one in the same way. try also using memtest, it runs in dos mode it should work better. that way you can find out which of the ram is faulty, or eliminate the ram modules as the problem.
