XP rebooting

Recommended Posts

My friend has a machine which reboots itself many times a day. Each time it comes up with a BSD and a different error code. That makes it very very hard to see a pattern on what causing the reboots. If it was the same error code or error codes linked to a commom item that would give some direction to the repair, but error codes going all different directions......... makes life not good... Anyone out there run into something like this??

Can you get the BSOD codes and the files referenced? What would also help is if you can get the crash dump logs. :jump:

I am getting the machine today. Can get the error codes but not sure how to get athe crash dump log.

Are you talking about the event viewer / Application?

I thank you for your time in this matter and await your reply

I had the machine here for a week running 24/7 and no problem. Her first maching starting rebooting then I build her a different machine and it started doing the same thing. So I loaned her a 3rd machine and it did the same thing while the one I build her ran for that week no problem. So I told her to have a elect

check her house power. Still waiting for the anwser.

A UPS with voltage regulation/filtering may also help if the problem is caused by the power.

She had a UPS on but no telling how good the battery was. Still waiting to hear after the Elect checks.

Will keep you posted.

I say she has an ex boyfriend or ex-friend who is nuking her IM program and rebooting her to p*** her off.

2nd guess, change the power cord only, it's probably he only thing in common with all 3 computers. besides the electric outlets.

Are you running her IM's during the week are you. Did you check for rootkits and keyloggers? ask her if she loses it during IM sessions?

She does not use IM and it was a clean XP install. But you might have something on the power cord. Easy thing to check and like you said commom to all machines.

Thanks for the ideal.

I like Caveman!

He have good ideas and theories. I like his theories. I agree with him.

She have an ex-boyfriend who nukes her IM program, oh and he also posts nude pics of her on the Lunarstorm forum.

Thanks Eldmannen for the compliment, I looked for the pics you mentioned but only saw you in a tutu, didn't know you took ballet.

Having updated my WinXP SP3 with the latest hotfixes using wibdows update (about 16 hf), I found my computer unexpectedly reboot on several occasions. Sometimes it goes to the the black screen of booting options. On restart I get the following error message:

The system has recovered from a serious error.

Looking at the subsequent relevant error message manifests I found them to contain "talismans" like this:

BCCode=1000008e&BCP1=C0000005&BCP2=BF805ADD&BCP3=B18815F8&BCP4=00000000&OSVer=5_1_2600&SP=3_0&Product=256_1

BCCode=1000000a&BCP1=00000003&BCP2=00000002&BCP3=00000000&BCP4=808468EE&OSVer=5_1_2600&SP=3_0&Product=256_1

BCCode=10000050&BCP1=E98ECAF0&BCP2=00000000&BCP3=BF87D8C5&BCP4=00000002&OSVer=5_1_2600&SP=3_0&Product=256_1

BCCode=4e&BCP1=00000099&BCP2=0003F1B8&BCP3=00000001&BCP4=00000000&OSVer=5_1_2600&SP=3_0&Product=256_1

BCCode=1000008e&BCP1=C0000005&BCP2=8087A9EB&BCP3=B20EBB50&BCP4=00000000&OSVer=5_1_2600&SP=3_0&Product=256_1

...ets

I believe this could be imputed to one of the hotfixes applied, but which one is the "culprit"?? I dont know.

Worth noting. my Kaspersky Anti-Virus shows no virus in my system - desktop computer.

I'd be very grateful if someone can help me how to resolve this annoying issue.

Thanks in advance.
