    What you are experiencing is a BSOD...blue screen of death.
    It usually happens due to some bad driver install, or some other conflict thats not allowing windows to access the resources pretty well.
    What is the latest Hardware change, driver change or software install/unisntall that you did?
    Go to Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Event Viewer
    Look for entries with "Red" cross against them in right pane when you click on "System" and "Application" in left pane.
    Double click on all the latest entries and see the description of the error that it provides. Post the errors out here, that you think might be doing it. The ones under "System" are much more important.
    Go to Device Manager, Control Panel --> System. Click on Hardware tab and then click on device manager. Look for any device with a yellow coloured quetion mark against it. If you find one, its a device with driver problems. Try reinstalling it drivers.

    Cheers asklepios

    I dont thibnk there are any IRQ problems I have been having those yellow alerts in the device manager but have settled them, however.....in the event log,

    Yeah from memory (mine!) the last ones have been mentioning that Hard Drive2 is not ready for digital audio, this is confusing as the two hd's in the ,mobo are numdered 0 and 1 (?) I think, but the e drive is the audio drive in the 2nd slot (c-system/d-vision drives are partions, so ....

    There is also another event message that comes up but I cant remeber right now what it is...

    I have just reformated using xp and the last hardware device was The M-Audio delta 410, I have the 27's as the drivers , have tried the 29's and the latest Beta but the 27's are the stable ones.

    I have also got the Nividia Ti 4200 and have settled on the 41.07 drivers as these are most stable.

    But.... I have just installed the NI B4/ Louinge Lizard vst plugs and a load of others, I dont know if this could make a difference?

    What you reckon?

    Go to your system properties again...
    then Advanced Tab...in the "Start up and Recovery" click on "Settings".
    Under "System Failure" uncheck the boxes that say "Write an event to the system log", "Send an administrative alert" and "Automatically Restart" and under "Write debugging information" chose "none". Click ok and come out of the system properties.
    Now whenever you will get the blue screen you will get enough time to note the error down. Check the error and post it. Another thing is that post the errors that are being logged in your "event viewer". Check your "event viewer" as explained earlier.
    Do tell us since how long have you been facing this probs!

    I have not found much help for you but you can do two things...firstly scan your memory (RAM) for any errors. You can use MemTest86 to do it.
    Its a nice command line tool and you will need to make a bootable floppy with the help of this tool. Check your memory for any errors cos the scan done by windows is not very thorough.
    The feeling that I am getting by reading those error messages is that something is wrong with your HD...:(
    Visit your HD maker's site and download its relevant diagnostic utility to check that the health of your HD is fine. If you get the blue screen again, note down the error this time and it might be of a bit more help.

    Well asklepios are digipathic?


    you must have read the BScreen cause after making your tweaks last night I was editing audio and using media rack as player, the player crashed three times , the evnt log stating that the IPSEC services service was terminated, then it blue screened with the message that I should use ythe system diagnostic utilities to run a memory check, and indicated the possibilty of faulty/mismatched memory

    Stop: 0x0000007f (0x00000008, ox80042000, ox00000000, ox00000000)

    Digging about Ive founf that there is a difference between eu and non-eu memory and the Motherboard p4s8x/lan/1394/sata/gold may need non-ue memory...?

    I shall get the utility you reckon, run it and post results tomorrow

    cheers for your help, this could be a major breakthrough......:thumb: :thumb:

    Well you might be getting that IPSEC service error cos IPSEC service is stopped. You won't be needing this service untill you are on a domain or in other words on a network and these restarts you are getting are certainly not cos of that service. For an average user with a stand-alone PC, that error doesn't mean much so you can simply ignore it.

    The error you are getting up there is known as STOP error.
    Your specific type is know as Double Fault.

    STOP errors happen when: =
    Either you have a hardware or software problem
    or
    A badly over-clocked system.

    Most common causes are: =
    Corrupt Memory (RAM)
    Mismatched memory modules
    A malfunctioning mobo

    Double Faults are related to: =
    Bad CPU, RAM, bus on hardware front, and
    Faulty drivers on kernel level.

    You can read more from this M$ article.
    As diagnosed by the "System Diagnostic Utility", most probable reason for this problem in your case seems to be bad memory or RAM in other words. As you agree that you've got mis-matched memory modules...then that can be a major reason for all this happening. See what you get from memory test.
    I would advice that just keep one type of RAM on your PC and work on it for sometime and see whether you get the same problem again. If you don't get any more problems then you will have to change your memory to same type of modules.
    Another thing you can do is try going to device manager again and check for any signs in front of the devices mentioned. You did mention that there were some yellow marks and you settled them. I would like you to check them once again. You never know when a driver starts acting funny.

    Just as a note...wat did you mean by..."Well asklepios are digipathic?" :?:

    :cheers:
