    My PC shows BSODs every 3-4 hours and the cause is coming from tcpip.sys... I suspect the network card but i have only 2 months that i bought that. I attach the minidumps. Please i can use some help here...

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    2 minidumps crash at Rtlnicxp.sys. Your Realtek lan driver. They have a bugcheck of 0A.

    3 minidumps crash at nltdi.sys. Netlimiter??? They have a bugcheck of 7E.

    Try updating your lan drivers.

    Uninstall/update netlimiter.

    There is is similar problem with netlimiter HERE

    0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    Typically due to a bad driver, or faulty or incompatible hardware or software. Use the General Troubleshooting of STOP Messages checklist above. Technically, this error condition means that a kernel-mode process or driver tried to access a memory location to which it did not have permission, or at a kernel Interrupt ReQuest Level (IRQL) that was too high. (A kernel-mode process can access only other processes that have an IRQL lower than, or equal to, its own.)


    A system thread generated an exception which the error handler did not catch. There are numerous individual causes for this problem, including hardware incompatibility, a faulty device driver or system service, or some software issues. Check Event Viewer (EventVwr.msc) for additional information.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    2 minidumps crash at nltdi.sys. Netlimiter. They have bugchecks of 0A, and 7E respectively.

    1 minidump crashes at viaudios.sys. VIA AC'97 Enhanced Audio WDM Driver. It has a bugcheck of 7E.

    1 minidump crashes at ptserial.sys. HSP Modem Serial Device Driver for NT 5.0. It has a bugcheck of D1.

    1 minidump crashes at fetnd5.sys. VIA Technologies, Inc. NDIS 5.0 miniport driver. It has a bugcheck of D1.

    Tell your friend to update/uninstall netlimiter.

    Update his modem drivers.

    Update his onboard sound drivers, and chipset drivers.

    He should also go HERE and follow the instructions for testing his ram/hard drive/pagefile etc.


    The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

    The meaning of the other bugchecks are as in my first reply to you.

    Regards Howard :)
