various BSOD - please help

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

I've been getting BSODs lately and I'm not able to figure out what is causing
the problem. Here's some error messages I got:

#1 (in descending order of appearance):
Error code 100000be, parameter1 f33341bf, parameter2 088dd121, parameter3
b8590830, parameter4 0000000a.
I remember it said on BSOD "an attempt was made to write to read-only
memory" and had a filename attached at the end of the code: psched.sys

#2:
Error code 10000050, parameter1 befb7650, parameter2 00000001, parameter3
f6fa3dd9, parameter4 00000002.
"PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" and filename Alcxsens.sys

#3:
Error code 000000d1, parameter1 00000082, parameter2 00000002, parameter3
00000001, parameter4 baf8ff0a.
"DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and filename tcpip.sys (add. BAF8FF0A base
at BAF8D000 datestamp 4294d4d3

#4:
Error code 0000007f, parameter1 0000000d, parameter2 00000000, parameter3
00000000, parameter4 00000000.

#5:
Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c000001d, parameter2 f3d47328, parameter3
f797eb70, parameter4 00000000.

This should be it. I've been getting more BSODs, but I thought it was the
WinXP fault and so I reinstalled the OS. But I kept receiving these errors
and so I upgraded BIOS (on my new Epox motherboard) and installed the latest
version of motherboard drivers (incl. networking drivers).
Is this a network problem as I see psched.sys and tcpip.sys are typical
network drivers? Hardware or software? Maybe something else?
I've got a few minidump files, if they're of any extra help at all..

Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated!

    Jane,
    It looks to me like a hardware problem. I was having similar problems
    and eventually had to replace my motherboard.

    The first has to do with your network adapter (or Windows)
    The next has to do with your sound card (on-board I believe)
    The 3rd is also with your network adapter (or Windows)
    The 4th is most commonly hardware based, but can be software related
    The 5th is nearly always hardware compatibility issues (which sometimes
    means a driver issue or a need for a BIOS upgrade).

    So, here's what I suggest:
    1) Flash your BIOS to the latest version (you said this is done, but check
    to be sure)
    2) Visit Windows Update and ensure that you've got all the latest updates.
    3) Disable your sound card (in Device Manager) until this problem is fixed
    (I had a similar problem a while back, which I blamed on the sound card -
    which wasn't at fault).
    4) Remove any other devices which arent' absolutely necessary (my problem
    turned out to be a TV card that took a lightning strike through the coax
    cable - I replaced almost all of the system componenets before I figured it
    out!) The goal is to only have memory, video, hard drive, mouse, and
    keyboard installed.
    5) Update your motherboard drivers (you said this is done, but check to be
    sure)
    6) Update your Network adapter driver (you said this is done, but check to
    be sure)
    7) Run MemTest86 from here (it's free): http://www.memtest86.com/ Any
    errors at all means a problem with your memory - Let it run for at least 2
    hours, if it encounters any errors you can close it down. Error = bad RAM.
    8) Add the pieces from steps 3 and 4, one at a time. Checking to see which
    one causes the problem. Once you've isolated the problem, you can
    troubleshoot the device here, or you can just get a new one.

    Hi Jane,

    Can you send me your minidumps and I'll look at them? You might want to
    follow these instructions and send any dumps you get after enabling Driver
    Verifier.

    To determine what driver is causing the problem I need you to enable driver
    verifier.
    Steps:
    1) Windows Key + R
    2) Type in 'verifier' and hit enter
    3) Make sure 'Create Standard Setting' is selected and hit next
    4) Click on 'Select all drivers installed on this computer' and hit Finish
    5) Reboot

    There is a possibility that your computer will crash on reboot. If this
    occurs hit F8 when rebooting just before the windows logo screen and select
    the safe mode boot option. Follow the same steps above but on step 4 choose
    'Select driver names from a list'; hit next; check the box next to any
    driver where the provider is not Microsoft; hit Finish; reboot.

    This will slow the performance of you computer a little while enabled but
    will hopefully catch the driver causing corruption. Next time you crash
    the blue screen will hopefully say something like
    "DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION". If this occurs please send the
    corresponding minidump (by default it is at c:\windows\Minidump ) my way.
    If you have any questions or I didn't explain something well enough don't
    hesitate to e-mail me (remove "online") back. Good Luck,

    This may not be the appropriate advice, but checking that your RAM and
    graphics card are seated properly can cure a multitude of BSOD's.
    Probably the best thing is to swap them out with know good working
    alternatives. Also make sure you safely clear any accumultaions of dust
    around critical components like your ram and cpu heatsink etc.

    Great. I do suspect that my motherboad is the one to blame for my BSODs. I
    recently got a new one and those BSODs started appearing.. And the most
    suspicious part is the network adapter. I bought a new one just in case...

    your solutions:
    1) I got the last version of BIOS for my motherboard. Check.
    2) Windows is updated (ok, I refuse to download SP - security issues..,
    other updates are installed)
    3+4) this may take a while.. my computer works fine for a few days and then
    suddenly..BSOD. I'll try this a bit later. 1st step: disabling onboard LAN
    5+6) all motherboard's drivers updated to latest version
    7) MemTest86 shows no errors

    Hi.

    I'll send you my minidumps asap. I got a new one following your advice.
    My computer didn't crash at reboot so I thought it was a good sign. Windows
    turned on, slowly. It really slowed the performance of my computer down.
    And after a while windows turned off the monitor (power save option) and
    when I got back, it didn't want to turn on. So I figured I got another blue
    screen.
    Thanks.. I'll contact you via e-mail.

    Hi Jane,

    Your system will be sluggish when the verifier is on. The reason is that
    it has to check the "gueard pages" in memory after every driver call to see
    if something went wrong and call for a system halt for investigation if it
    did. We will turn it off once we get your issue sorted out. :)

    Hey,

    I've replaced my network adapter with a new one and I believe I have (one
    of) my problems fixed. I didn't recieve any more BSODs since then. I'm still
    a bit cautious about the onboard sound card.. I hope I don't get any more of
    these BSODs.
    Thank you all for helping me out!

    Best Regards,
    Jane
