Dell Latitude d600
Pentium M 1.6mhz
WinXP sp2 (fully updated)
Symantec Antivirus (corporate edition)
...I keep everything up to date.
So, I am getting the blessed BSOD on that machine. I have tried booting it with each combination of my two RAM chips in each DIMM, same result. Here's what it gives me:
0x000000ED (0x83Bc9900, 0x0000009c, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
I've also received these variations:
0x000000ED (0x82F96900, 0x0000009c, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) (I got this one twice)
0x000000ED (0x8279AC30, 0x0000009c, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
I have tried booting in Safe Mode twice and both times it hangs at:
This happened after Windows froze. I was trying to open Remote Desktop, it crashed, it asked me to send an error report, I chose to do so, and then Windows froze. So, I powered down and when I powered back up, the BSOD started coming. It comes when I get the windows screen and the little blue status bar ticks away...perhaps it's the agp440.sys file, who knows.
It may help you to know that I was running the laptop yesterday without any hitches, Remote Desktop and all. I have noticed lately that the RAM compartment runs very hot after a little while, but that observation may be due to the fact that I have been setting the laptop on my lap more often. I've tried to give you all information that I thought could possibly be pertinent...I also try to blow out the fan compartment with compressed air to get the dust out so that it doesn't heat. I opened the RAM compartment earlier today and blew air into it as well, though I don't know if that means anything.
I appreciate any and all help, thanks!
P.S. I loaded up recovery mode from a Windows XP cd, and I am running "chkdsk c: /r" as I type, I will keep this post updated.
