Got this message twice already after booting up from a reset were it appears it actually loses power which i know it doesn't),

"The System has recovered from a serious error, a log of this error has been created."

The log is as follows. BCCode : a BCP1 : E16E1D40 BCP2 : 00000002 BCP3 : 00000000
BCP4 : 80578945 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 0_0 Product : 256_1


What does it mean?
Is my O.S corrupted and should reinstall it again?


All of this occured after a few days I bought a new memory for my pc. Does it have something to do with it?

Hi Chinita
The 1st step I woud do is take out the Ram
If you want to check it download the memory tester in my signature
and run it. Even if it passes still take it out and see if all is ok.
It might even be mismatched ram

Thanks so much peterm. so it means that there's no need in reinstalling the XP?

btw, how would i know that its a mismatched?
im sure that what i bought is 256mb SDRAM PC 133

is it a manufacturer's defect?

Hi Chinta
1st step run the memory tester
2nd step remove the new ram and see what happens.
3rd step is we look at both ram chips to make sure they are the same.
If you can't read the info on the chips then we will get the info from the system
Cheers

Ok thanks. I'm using the old ram now & things are stable now. The latest ram has some problems with it. Gonna return it from the store and exchange it for something new. Thanks for the help! :whistling:
