A7V133, 1.33GHz Athlon. G450 Matrox AGP.

I have managed to install Win2k.

BIOS upgraded to 1004, G450 BNIOS upgraded to latest.
Current Matrox video drivers.
IBM DTLA307030 7200rpm 2mb HDD.

While windows is running, I occasionally keep getting these errors. What do they mean?This is one message I keep getting
***STOP: 0X0000001E (0XC0000005,0X803A4E9F,0X00000000,0X00000001)
address 803a4e9f base at 803a4000, datestamp 381f8c6e - hal.dll

Here's another one:
***STOP: 0X0000001a (0XC0000000,00000002,0X00000001,0X803a8ce1)
address 803A8CE1 base at 803a4000, datestamp 381f8c6e - hal.dll

I would like to know whatis causing this so I can fix it!

I used to get these messages while installing Win2k....

hal stands for Hardware Abstraction Layer, and is a low level interface to your hardware (for want of a better word). I would have said that maybe your board needs a custom HAL, but the A7V is quite common, and I'm sure you would have already heard about that. My guess is it's some kind of hardware acting up. Probably should start removing stuff as a first pass.

Good luck.
