I get this error about once every couple of days, noramally when playing games. It's a blue secreen error message that says:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to protect your computer.
I've read a few articles & it seems this may well be down to a driver. One comment said "Compare the forth parameter with the base addresses of the drivers in the driver table, to find out which driver is causing the problem."
If this sounds correct, how do I do what it suggests, being of limited inteligence.
Ok, what was the last piece of hardware or software you installed, try un-installing that and so on until you find it. Some clues may be found in system manager in event viewer and also task manager can indicate where a lot of recources are going.
It seems to me that a software is trying to access the memory at places that it should not. Sometimes this happens when the software is badly coded. Are you running dubious software? I.e. non commercial software.
In ancient times they had no statistics so they had to fall back on lies
The main piece of sofware that causes the problems is Battlefield 1942, though Counter-Strike also causes errors sometimes.
The last bits of hardware I installed were an Audigy DE soundcard & a Plextor CDR.
If I had to guess when all this started happening, it was more likely to be after installing service pack 1 for XP home. I only haven't uninstalled this as it says I will need to install everything installed after the service pack again, after removing the service pack, did anyone understand that last sentence?
