[SOLVED] BSOD 0x0A During Boot Tags: Blue Screen Boot Windows XP Last response: June 3, 2011 7:39 PM in Windows XP Share Obsidian_ShadowHawk May 31, 2011 5:14:28 PM I'm running WinXp Home 32-bit. (Specs at the bottom). I'm getting the following bluescreen during boot (while at the black Windows XP splash screen): IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL *** STOP: 0x0000000A (0x00000038, 0x0000001C, 0x00000000, 0x804FAF71) I have my OS configured to do a full memory dump and kernel dump on every BSOD, but it does not do that with this one. I guess it's not far enough in the boot process to be able to do a dump. Also, there is one bulging capacitor below the RAM slots on the motherboard that I'm planning on replacing, if it has any bearing on this error. Is there any way to boot this disk in a Virtual Machine on another system and scan the memory to see what is at those addresses in the error? Anybody have any other suggestions? Thanks, everybody!
