    My dumps...

    Can someone please look at my dumps too? I started having BSODs once or twice every day about 2 weeks ago. No hardware changes or driver updates have been done. I've attached 4 minidumps - I'll be happy to add more if needed.

    Two of your minidumps are inaccessible and this are the symptom of faulty RAM. One minidump crashed at tcpip. As you know tcpip is a stable module. It crashes only if hardware error.

    1. Reseat your memory to another memory slot
    2. Downclock the RAM
    3. Take one memory stick if you have two. If no more BSOD occurs, the removed RAM is faulty.

    blue screen with Stuck Key 2

    Blue screen again, when restarting, it says an error: Stuck Key 2, then starting again its ok.

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000004e (0x00000099, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: %1. A dump was saved in: %2.

    I have put the Mini082105-01.dmp in the attachment. Please check. Also want to know how to see what is in the dump file.

    Really thanks.

    Hi William,

    Do you mean that after you update Norton AV and de-install tdiupdate, your windows crashed with bugcheck 4E with only one occurence?

    Hi William,

    From your latest minidump, I find out your Norton AV is upgraded to 2005. If you don't tell me the truth, I can't help you. Maybe some experts can help you.

    error report

    Dear Expert,

    I just have a full scan with the Norton, what is Norton AV?

    Also this morning when starting it has an error report, the program is rfibug.exe, location is c:/windows/system2, and the error occurs everytime after entering XP, wonder how to find the detail about the report. Its not convenient to see it just in the dialbox.

    a blue screen, dmp file attched.

    Also in the msconfig startup, there are some strange program. like yvvxsme.exe r, what does r mean here? also in system2

    Many thanks,

    You does not provide accurate information. Garbage in and garbage out. Base upon your last minidump, fauty RAM is the culprit.

    This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints
    the driver/function that caused the problem. Always note this address
    as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
    Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003. This means a hard
    coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
    /NODEBUG. This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
    hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
    If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
    system is booted /DEBUG. This will let us see why this breakpoint is
    Arg1: c0000005, The exception code that was not handled
    Arg2: 8054ae34, The address that the exception occurred at
    Arg3: f10e3aa0, Trap Frame
    Arg4: 00000000

    Debugging Details:

    EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 - The instruction at "0x%08lx" referenced memory at "0x%08lx". The memory could not be "%s".

    physical memory dump error message

    Hello all!

    After reading some of these posts, I was hoping that someone could tell me what was going on with this machine. I have attached the files from the event viewer. The machine is up and running now, but I hope to keep it that way, so I would really appreciate if someone could tell me why I got the error message.

    Thanks in advance.

    Your minidumps are corrupted and it is the symptom of bad ram.

    OK, thanks.

    So I assume replacing the RAM will fix this???

    thanks again.

    Memory Dump and keep rebooting

    Hi folks, I am a newbie and I am very desperate for help. I switch on my system today and suddenly there wasa blue screen and said something about memory dump, it then rebooted and from morning till now, it is still the same. I tried booting into the safe mode and it appears that my hard disk did not crash.

    Could it be my RAM? or my mother board. My system is very new. Running on Intel P4 3.4GHZ, 2 GB DDR2 533 RAM (2 slots) and a 120GB hard disk with additional 2 removal IDE racks.

    Appreciate if all the masters and experts could help me on how to resolve the problem. Thanks ppl! :D

    Begin Physical Dump

    I have read through the problems on this forum and some things seem to coinside with my problem, but others don't.

    so here we go.

    not too long ago, my computer began to restart on me out of the blue. pretty much at random times. it restarts and comes up with the blue screen that has the begin physical dump of memory. now here is the odd twist that my situation has. my RAM, i use 2 sticks. and i have it in slots 3 & 4. when i have both of them in, the computer restarts everytime, i cant even start windows at all. BUT when i have only one stick of the RAM in slot 3 it works. to use the RAM for any of my gaming needs, i do need to have both in....or else i would just deal with the one. is there any reason that my computer would start with just one stick of the RAM in slot 3, but not both sticks in slot 3 & 4??

    any help on this would be wonderous, cause i have been lookin at it all week long!

    Hi Viper,

    Obviously, this is the faulty RAM. Two bits were lost can cause bugcheck code 4E.

    Typically caused by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists (ie: calling
    MmUnlockPages twice with the same list, etc). If a kernel debugger is
    available get the stack trace.
    Arg1: 0000008f, The free or zeroed page listhead is corrupt
    Arg2: c001bbd1, new page
    Arg3: 0001bbd1, old page <--- (the high order byte shoud be c and it is 0. Two bits were lost and it is two bits corruption)
    Arg4: 00000000, 0

    Debugging Details:

    what is fault ram

    Dear expert,

    What is fault ram, does it mean my memory went wrong?

  24. cpc2004

    cpc2004 TS Evangelist Posts: 1,994

    Hi William,

    RAM means that Random Access Memory. AV is the abbreviation of antivirus. Search google and find out the question such as RAM, Norton AV. There have a lot of posts within this forum how to handle faulty ram. Do some reading b4 you ask question. You had better take your PC to hardware shop. You don't have the basic hardware knowledge. I am afraid that you will screw up your computer.
