Newbie needs help guessing at cause of BCCode 9C

By jra7591

  1. Hi, I am newbie to the board. I am getting a BCCode error of 9C occasionally from my AMD xP 2600 ASUS A7V880 system with Win xP SP2. Has been running fine for 10 months.

    BCCode :9C BCP1 : 0000000 BCP2 : 8054D370 BCP3 " C4014000
    BCP4 : 00000136 OsVer : 5_1_2600 SP: 2_0 Product : 256_1

    From what I am reading it is a hardware error
    and hard to figure out. I was hoping the attached dmp file might provide clues to the trained eye.
    Listed below is my system info. From reading other stuff on the net, it seemed to me that my cPU idle temp is
    at least borderline high at 49C or 50C.

    I ran Prime95 torture test and it only took about 10-15 minutes for my pc rebooted. I also had ASUS probe up on the
    screen and the last temp I saw was 61C. Now I ran it just for a fews minutes tonight and temp got up to 63C then dropped to 61C(ASUS probe readdings).

    Played the 3DMark05 demo just fine but CPU temp rose to 55C. Earlier today ran 3DMark05 and it appeared okay but I got a 9C escaping out of it.
    The dump I attached is an example of what I have been getting when my pc is stressed beyond normal surfing and reading emails.

    Anyway any help would be greatly appreciated as well as advice on whether I need a better Heatsink/CPU fan and maybe another case fan.
