OH ok, I do have a wireless adapter in there for use with the internet at home. I believe that was updated when I installed it but I will check for grins.


Thanks much for your help. So for now, it's safe to say that there SHOULD NOT (but always could be) anything wrong with hardware? I just have to update everything?

okay cool well tonight I've been cleaning my room and practing taking vitals. Tomorrow I have to get up in the morning for the last bit of my ER time for my EMT-B class, so I will do my driver updating later this weekend. I will be sure to report back though.

Well I updated the wireless adapter and the video card. So far no BSOD, but it has been surprising in the past. I now had a problem with GTA4. The game played but then would not load any cars in the game. I tried rebooting computer and game, and the game has an issue on start up. I am consulting a GTA4 forum at the moment for help on that.

But now sometimes when I turn my computer on, the "windows loading" screen comes on very "dim" and freezes. So I have to hard reboot. Sometimes it will freeze after the windows loading screen completes. Confused!!!

Thought I had it momentarily licked.... but I left to go to church and the computer was on screen saver/idle. Came home to a BSOD! But thanks to some advice here I turned off the auto-reboot feature.

I tried hard rebooting several times to just more BSOD. I will give descriptions of all them as best I can and any help is appreciated very much!


Upon return to home, I found this BSOD:

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

***STOP: 0x0000000A, (0X00000000, 0X00000002, 0X00000000, 0X8051B44A)
BEGIN DUMP OF PHYSICAL MEMORY
PHYSICAL MEMORY DUMP COMPLETE


Then I did a hard reboot (which I think means using the button on the front)

After windows load screen, I received this BSOD:

(No description up top)

***STOP: 0X0000008E (0XC0000005, 0X8063757C, 0XBA4C2D58, 0X00000000)



I then did a hard reboot, and got this BSOD:

Driver overrun stack.......based buffer.

***STOP: 0X000000F7 (0X8A754D64, 0X0000BB40, OXFFFF44BT, 0X00000000)


I did one more hard reboot, and it ran the windows check disc sequence, and self rebooted, and I got this BSOD:

No description

***STOP: 0X0000007E (OXC0000005, 0X80608B7D, 0XBA503BB0, 0XBA5038AC)



And then I hard shut down. I don't want to keep rebooting for these BSOD screens. I am a mechanic and when a car has a "service engine soon" light, I use special scanners to access data in the car to tell me why the light is on. I would like to think these BSOD screens are a computer's version of the same type of information. Any help with deciphering these would be greatly appreciated, as I have no idea what the codes mean. THANKS!

Bug Check 0x8E: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
Bug Check 0xF7: DRIVER_OVERRAN_STACK_BUFFER
Bug Check 0x7E: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

There is most definately a driver issue somewhere. As for which driver it is i can not tell. But something is not liking your setup. Since you are running XP maybe a Repair install might be your best option.

well if I have to repair install windows, I will have to re update the service packs, correct? If that's the case then it will take ridiculously long to get back to where I was because I have a terrible slow internet to download.

And also, this will be the third time I have to reinstall the computer. HMM... bad hard drive?

Have you tried to run chkdsk /r /f at all? If not try that.
