Hey G2G, been a while, been very busy, but i'm back.

*NOTE* I HAVE RUN THE RECOVERY CONSOLE WITH CHKDSK /R AND IT DID NOT FIX THIS*
I posted a long time ago ere, a problem i had with a BSOD and the stop 0x0000007E error, it happened rarely but it did happen, recently (two days ago) it started happening very frequently, to the point were windows will not boot normally, it WILL boot into safe mode and i am currently in safe mode with networking. Microsoft suggests the following to address the issue:

- Not enough space (no it)
- Soundblaster card malfunction (i don't own one so, no.)
- Faulty RAM (I've had issues but i doubt it, i'll run a memtest)
- System Driver (Most probable)

Now, my event viewer has an error under the "system" category which reads as follows:

The following drivers did not load correctly:
-Fips
-intelppm
-sp_rsdrv2


Before it read more but i got rid of them, it had read ElbyCDIO and some other one i got rid of with drivercleaner.net

I know the above drivers are not faulty but one that is required for those to work, problem is, which one? Is there any way for me to know in which order windows loads it's drivers?

P.S. Event Viewer show an excessive amount of DCOM errors, most of them related to: The service DCOM could not start in safe mode and........


Any ideas/suggestions? any help would be extremely appreciated.

I would run the memtest, let it go through a couple times, then run a hard drive test. Those stop errors almost always can go back to hardware. Just have to test through everything one by one.

Blue screen error messages are one of the most misunderstood error messages out there in regards to windows.According to Microsoft, only 5-20% of these errors are actually caused by the OS. Only 10% are hardware related. The other 70% are the result of faulty drivers or software incompatibility. Based on those numbers, less than 15% of blue screen errors can be permanently resolved with an OS reinstall.

So we can correctly solve this issue we need to get the minidumps.

To get the Minidumps do the following

1 > Create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like.
2 > Navigate to %systemroot%\minidump You can paste that address in address bar to get there. Then copy the last few minidump files to that folder.%systemroot% is normally c:\windows. They are numbered by date.
3 > Close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder. Please do NOT compress them in .rar
4 > Use the "add reply" option upload that zip file here as an attachment.

Will do, btw, i repaired WinXP with the XP CD, had some issues along the way including a COM+ error and the CD drive letter changing (i had to use my other drive) but besides that Windows seems to work ok, even faster boot time, i wouldn't be surprised if i got a BSOD again though.

Here are the minidumps, there only 88kb each. Thanks for your help, it's not hardware, I'm almost positive of it.

P.S I'm rebooting, and if i run into a problem i'll boot into safe mode with networking, until i/you/someone helps me fix this stubborn issue once and for all....

Do you have any software from Comando if so what?
A repair install probably will not fix this issue.
Are you still getting a blue screen error message?
Is the Comando Software still running at startup after the repair install.

COMODO is in my signature, they offer free antispyware/antivirus/firewall. I just use the firewall, great product by the way. During the repair, my CD Drive letter changed so had to use my DVD drive and i received a COM+ error.

As for the video, there integrated graphics. Intel Extreme graphics, full specs are on my profile.

I am not getting any error messages anymore and COMODO Firewall is running. I wouldn't doubt if i did recieve an error, but what would you suggest to make sure i don't get one?

P.S. Right now I'm dealing with some spyware that pops up an errorsafe.com popup, it's really bothering me now..... I'll head over to the malware section as i have run a spyware scan and antivirus....

It has high possibility of being malware. Often times the Windows debugger says a security software is the cause when in fact it is malware causing issues with the security software.

I see that this has been inactive for a while but I am having the same problems.

I have COMODO as well and i suspect that somehow it is interfering with some other drivers.

I have been having random Blue screens, the last one had cavasm.sys as the faulty file.

help please.
