    From time to time my system resets itself for no appearent reason. I get a MS Windows srceen that pops up and says (The system has recovered from a serious error). I can then veiw the error log signature, which reads-

    BCCode: 100000050 BCP1:FE915BD9 BCP2:00000000 BCP3:FE915BD9BCP4:00000000 OSVer:5_1_2600 SP:1_0 Product:256_1

    Then I can veiw technical information in the Error Report Contents which reads the following files will be included in this error report.

    C:\Windows\Minidump\Mini032003-01.dmp
    C:\DOCUME~1\SUPERC~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER1.temp.dir00 \sysdata.xml


    This is a new system I just put together and I'm running Win XP PRO. Does anyone know what could be causing this reset?

    First you need to get the error that is behind these restarts.
    Go to Control Panel --> System
    in the window that pops up click on Advanced Tab. Under start up and recovery click on settings and in the next window that pops up look for system failure.
    Uncheck all the check boxes under this section. Click ok and then ok again. This time whenever the system experiences and error you will most probably get a blue or black screen mentioning the error. Note down that error and then post it here.

    You will have to manually restart to get back to windows as you have just disabled "Automatic Restart" from unchecking all those check boxes! I hope you got it!

    Good reply asklepios

    Most likely an app problem.

    as well try these.

    1) Go to Start/run then enter eventvwr.msc
    click "application"
    the big red x's are the nasty event logs
    right click on an red x event and select properties(if you have lots of red x's, find one close to the last date and time a crash occured)
    let us know what it says or (if you prefer to do it yourself) find out the name of the offending modules are then find out who owns them by searching the disk, and using windows explorer, right click on the program, select properties and the company's name who wrote the program and uninstall their application or complain to them if you wish to keep it.


    and...

    Run anti virus
    Run trojan cleaner
    Run spyware program

    Go to here:
    http://www.perthpcug.org.au/~rshort/...ds/PCUtil.html
    and download regclean41.zip. It is a microsoft product and safe. unzip into a new folder and double click regclean. run it and click fix errors.

    go to start/run and enter msconfig
    click the start tab
    unclick all the items

    reboot and run your comp.
    if it still crashes, let us know about it.
    if your comp runs well then in msconfig startup, click the apps you want to run on startup (ie anti virus, firewall , etc) the rest are usually junk and i dont recommend turning them back on.

    It would seem to me to be a hardware issue in both cases. I would check your ram and cpu for errors. go to www.tucows.com and download one of the mem tests to test your ram, then do a burn in test to test the cpu. I would remove the CPU and check for chipping on the die if u are running an athlon, and make sure the heatsink is getting proper contact with the die.

    Go to Control Panel/Admin Tools/Event Viewer and under both software and system look for any red flags and let us know what is being recorded with them.

    ok heres what it says
    Error code 00000071 parameter1 c03dd920, parameter 2 c000000e, parameter3 f764fb2, parametter4 0cb75860

    The device, \Device\harddisk0\D, has a bad block


    %2: ACPI BIOS is attempting to read from an illegal IO port address (%3), which lies in the %4 protected address range. This could lead to system instability. Please contact your system vendor for technical assistance.

    lol even more **** that keeps adding up everyday grrr :shoot3:

    First of all go to the manufacturer's website of ya hard drive and download their diagnosic tools and if ya system is overclocked set it back to standard before runnin' the diag software and let us know what happens.

    I'm back with better results, but still the same. It doesn't reboot as often now. I started running a memtest one day, but didn't get to finish, though no errors came up. I stopped the auto reboot and wrote down what the error message was. Take a look:

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    So this must be some sort of software/hardware problem. Obviously a driver isn't working correctly. Could it be my video card? What programs can I run to make sure stuff I deleted, be it drivers and all were completely deleted. Because I know I've installed drivers and had to take them out, rollback and that kind of thing.
