Title: BSOD
Post by: peereli on January 01, 2012, 12:18:59 AM
HI
Got the BSOD and I`m  attaching the dumpfile and the Blue screen view/Nirsoft text report, it was a random BSOD, no problems to access Windows, I did CHKDSK= no errors, no windows error reports prior to crash. Any help regarding the cause and the fix, will be appreciated.Thanks.

About the third time during the last two months, not sure if the error code was 1001 as this one.

Not happening often enough to show any real problems.

How is the temp of the CPU?

I`m attaching temperatures report. May be some other symptoms: 1.Yesterday, I got Win error:1 regarding the sys restore: "System restore filter encountered the
unexpected error 0 when processing file XC0000043
"Harddisk Volume 1". It has stopped monitoring the volume". [It happened 3-4 hours after the BSOD]

2. Hard disk sounds extra working to me, your program reads:Drive write: 15kb/s-4MB/s when only FF three tabs opened and no special tasks going on.

"Harddisk Volume 1"

And the minidump said it was a file system error.

SO far 2 errors both leading to the hard drive. You might have a hard drive going out.

First thing is first, do a backup.

Next lets do a chkdsk but also have it check for bad sectors.

Open a command window and put in
chkdsk /r

It will ask if you want to do it at next reboot hit yes and reboot. This will take some time to complete.

Once done you can find the report in the event viewer :wink:

Hi Shane
Is the drive write speed: 15kb/s-4MB/s OK?
About 2 weeks ago I made the HD manufacturer deep check and it came out OK, so should I still go with the bad sectors search? could it be a drivers update issue or OS?

Drivers can cause it as well. So can bad memory and bad sectors. :wink:

Yes do a sector check.

Also see how fast your drive is going :wink:

Hi Shane
1.Did a sector check it looks like it is ok, I did not see any report in the event viewer.
2.Regarding the CHKDSK I got  the attached  report.
3.Sys restore failed again[ prior to CHKDSK and bad sector check], same report as previously attached.

Looks like chkdsk did fix some file system errors. But thankfully no bad sectors.

System restore could be messed up and you need to do a repair install of windoes to get it working again. But lets test the rest of the hardware. :wink:

Use this memory tester
http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp

Let it run for a while and see how it goes :-)

Thank you Shane I`ll do the test and see what happens.

Hi Shane
Did the test for about 30-40 min with no findings. Meanwhile added 2 GB RAM to the existing 1 GB, wonder if it is going to change anything in the puzzle.

So far hardware is looking good. Might be driver related. :wink:

Are you doing anything when the blue screen happens?

Did not have it again since the last time I reported, but if I`m correct, the last time it happened while the machine was moving a file. How often do you recommend I should do a CHKDSK procedure?

Run chkdsk any time you feel something isn't right.

The errors where file system related and chkdsk did fix some errors. So perhaps you got this one nailed :wink:

Only time will tell. Let me know how it goes after some more time passes and how the system behaves.

Thank you Shane I`ll let you in. Do you think that my adding 2GIGS of RAM will make any difference?
Title: Re: BSOD

It shouldn't. But the more memory for the system the better, 1gb wasn't much. :wink:

Hi Shane
I do not know if it is related  but know, if I press a link icon in my desk, or any other link icon in any folder, instead of getting me to the address, it gets the windows print window instead. Any ideas?

Sorry for bothering you, but meanwhile I found a fix here: http://www.dougknox.com/xp/file_assoc.htm
may be it is a good idea to add such a list in your site as well. :wink:

Yeah I might be adding those to my windows repair tool after I finish this new program.

Each version of windows is different but shouldn't be a problem :wink:
