my pc started going to blue screen a lot a couple of days ago ... (no new softeware or hardware has been installed) and a friend said try reinstalling windows XP sp2 ..... so i said ok i might as well upgrade from home edition to pro edition while i re install .... now it keeps going to blue screen and saying

A problem has been detected and windows has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer

An attempt was made to execute Non-Executable memory

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed
If this is a new installation ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any new updates you might need

If problems continue disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software, Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.

Technical Information

STOP: 0x00000FC (0XBACFFB80,0X0B59C963,0XBACFFAE8,0X0000001)

A search of the MS Knowledge based returned nothing about that error.

The cause could be one of the following.
- Faulty memory, test with memtest86
- Faulty hdd, test with a testing tool from the manufacturer
- Flakey Windows install, you are updating XP so this option could be pretty much ruled out.

You can find the necessary tools on the Ultimate Boot CD

If the RAM and HDD tests come back fine then you may need to start swapping out other hardware.

GIVE THIS A TRY

This problem occurs if all the following conditions are true:• The system includes a legacy hardware DVD decoder that requires the Mpegport.sys driver.
• You installed the 32-bit version of Windows XP SP2 on a computer that supports hardware-enforced data execution prevention (DEP).
When you restart your computer, the Mpegport.sys driver tries to run from a memory location that is monitored by DEP. You receive a Stop error that is similar to the following:
0x000000FC (ATTEMPTED_EXECUTE_OF_NOEXECUTE_MEMORY)

Your computer may restart immediately if it is configured to automatically restart when a system failure occurs.

WORKAROUND
To work around this problem, disable the Mpegport.sys driver in Device Manager by using Safe Mode. To do this, follow these steps:1. Restart your computer.
2. Press the F8 key. On a computer that is configured to start multiple operating systems, press F8 when the Startup menu appears.
3. Use the arrow keys to select a Safe Mode option, and then press ENTER.
4. Click Start, click Run, type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
5. In the View menu, click Show hidden devices.
6. Expand Non-Plug and Play Drivers.
7. Right-click the Mpegport.sys driver, and then click Properties.
8. On the Driver tab, change the Startup Type to Disabled, and then click OK.
9. Restart your computer.
If you require the Mpegport.sys driver, you can also turn off DEP. To turn off DEP, follow these steps: 1. Restart your computer.
2. Press the F8 key. On a computer that is configured to start multiple operating systems, press F8 when the Startup menu appears.
3. Use the arrow keys to select a Safe Mode option, and then press ENTER.
4. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
5. At the command prompt, type the following, and then press ENTER:
bootcfg /raw “/noexecute=alwaysoff /fastdetect” /id 1
If you have multiple start entries or start options, you may have to manually modify the Boot.ini file for your computer. To disable DEP by modifying the Boot.ini file, change the /noexecute policy level to alwaysoff.

Begining dump of physical memory

you have to let that take place before you try other options

you have to be consistent because i dont know how frequent your blue screens are

you shouldnt have used burned xp cd
====================================================
UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER

HOLD POWER BUTTON 30 SECONDS

REMOVE SIDE PANEL

DO YOU HAVE 2 RAMS (MEMORY STICKS)

IF YOU DO YOU HAVE PHYSICALLY REMOVE THEM

SWITCH THEM AROUND THE ONE IN THE FRONT TO THE BACK

AFTER YOUR DONE THIS PLUG IT BACK IN

UNPLUG EVERYTHING BUT YOUR KEYBOARD AND MOUSE

TRY POWERING UP >>>>>>>>>>>>>MIGHT WORK MIGHT NOT
