  1. Hi everyone,

    Having an issue with one of our clients 2003 servers where blue screens several times a month. I have downloaded the debug tools and relevant symbols but am not experienced in reading the dump file. I think it may be a meory fault but really not sure. If anyone can have a quick look at the attached dump file and advise, that would be much appreciated.

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

    Looks like you have a memory error or a driver error, or both. Change out memory to test.
    Something is quitting or being stopped.
    Can you figger out what Port _688 is?
    Run MemTest86 on each module, for four hours or 7 passes, whichever is longer... to find or rule out memory issued.
    What do you see in Device Manager? Any red or yellow flags? That can be a clue to driver issues.

    Bugcheck 0x8E errors are almost always Hardware errors. You are right in thinking its a Memory error if you haven't already download one of these and run a memory test on the computer.
    Memtest86 - http://www.memtest.org/
    Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool - http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp
    Then if the RAM passes this test move onto testing the HDD with the Manufacturers Test and running Check Disk (ChkDsk) as well.

    Edit - Just seen post above now.

    Try using Driver Verifier ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/244617 ) and enable it for unsigned drivers first (to prevent a drastic slowdown of the system). It should generate a BSOD with the driver identified - this can happen immediately after the reboot, or it may take some time for another BSOD to show up.

    If it's an immediate BSOD, the chances are good that it'll ID the faulty driver. If not, then the chances decrease - but at least it's a trail to follow. :)

    Good luck!

    Interesting if true. Interesting if not true.
