    Welcome to TechSpot Forums

    What devices do you have? Usually this kind of errors happen because of soundcard or graphics card drivers, although it can, of course, be other devices too.

    If you'd get a blue screen from this error (Blue Screen of Death), it should tell the driver's file name, unless you've set the computer to boot automatically so that you don't have time to read it.

    More details might also be available in Event Viewer.

    Error be = ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_READONLY_MEMORY, as far as I know.

    Welcome to techspot;
    It is always best to fill out your profile and give some specifics when you post more of the guys will help.
    Am I correct in assuming you are running Xp? If so that error message says your O/S has no service Packs.If that is true I would update at Micrososft .That may in fact solve your driver issue.

    Dear Liquid Len

    I apologise for not filling in my profile. My error just happens quite to often and the system just restarts itself. No blue screen or whatsoever.

    After the restart I recieve the error message.

    I am running Windows XP HE. I had to re-install after the same problem. no internet connection and nothing was working. Everytime I go to Log on screen it just restarted again and again.

    After a clean installation the same is happening all over again.

    In regirtry set HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl\AutoReboot to 0. No more automatic reboots. The BSOD kindly tells you what driver it crashed in.

    I was just too busy trying to keep my system teh way I wanted.

    I have downloaded and installed SP1. I have change the registry by setting HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl
    \AutoReboot to 0.

    The problem back even after installing WIN XP SP1

    The problem is back.

    This time I have recived a "Blue Screen of Death".

    Here is what it said:

    The problem seems to be caused by the following file:


    Technical information:

    STOP: 0x000000BE (0x80502648, 0x0052121, 0xee268BA4,

    iesprt.sys - Adress FA344443 base at FA344000 DATESTAMP 408eb71a

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    How do I find out what program this file belongs to?

    I have done a search on the net and came up with nothing.
    Please help someone.

    sounds like a driver file. I did a search on my machines and its not present on any of them, so I don't know what driver for certain. Check the Driver details of your hardware in device manager to find out what it belongs to. Then try removing and reinstalling the drivers for that device, or even using a different version.

    Dear StormBringer

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    I am using Windows XP.

    But how can I use Device Manager to work out what driver the file
    iesprt.sys belongs to?

    I know how to access device manager but just confused about how to connect the file to specific driver.

    Open Device Manager, then view the properties of a piece of hardware and click "driver details". Check for a listing of that file. Repeat for each device until you locate it.

    Dear Stormbringer

    I have been through every device driver twice but can't find that file.

    I have noticed that my printyer is not listed on the Device Driver. I own a Samsung ML4500 Printer. But when I go to Control panel and under Printers it is listed.

    When I switch the printer on I get a bubble saying found new hardware Samsung ML4500.

    How do I work out if the file is linked to this device?

    Dear StormBringer

    I have the original Driver disk from Samsung that came with the printer. I have removed and re-installed but it still is not listed on the device manager.

    Open System Information. Go to software enviroment->System drivers and look at th file column for all drivers installed.

    Also, find that file in your system, right click and choose properties. Look at the version tab.

    I did a quick google web search for that driver(iesprt.sys) .It took me to 4 sites 1 Russian and 3 Spanish .My Spanish is very crusty ,but It looks like it relates to Messenger.I wonder if you have the latest updates for Internet Explorer. I was reading these last updates fix a number of issues with Security and including restarts(Rare)
    You said you were loading applications by chance did you download any ? Maybe bad downloads Or did you load some app with Messenger running?

    Dear LiquidLen

    I have downloaded SP1 for WIndows XP. I was still having this problem before I downloaded it.

    I have windows Messenger which is disabled. I did download when Messenger said that I needed to upgrade to newer version MSN Messenger 6.2 which is on my system right now.
    MSN Messenger seems to be working fine and no errors.

    This is a virus

    This is a little stinker of a virus. A friend of mine kept getting the same exact error message concerning the iesprt.sys (datestamp) with the 0x000000BE BSOD. After doing some investigating it was a virus. Unfortunately, it was found in June of 2004, while you got this error message in May.

    driver device errors

    I am having all sorts of problems with windows xp service pack 2, blue screens etc. I am aware that some of my drivers are working in conflict and I have run several of the free trial software packages to establish which drivers need updating. I don't mind paying for the software but am not sure which one is the best to buy. Any ideas as I am pulling my hair out!
