Take a look here - WINDOWS XP SHUTDOWN & RESTART TROUBLESHOOTING
Thanks for the link.
I have looked through the information contained in the link, however I need some help understanding the probelms identified.
Whilst reading the link above, my pc gave a blue screen error. The error reported is as follows:
STOP:0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xEC5DB2C0, 0xF7A8F75C, 0xF7A8F458)
I have found out that:
0x0000007E = Bug Check 0x7E: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
0xC0000005 = STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION
0xEC5DB2C0 = Bug Check 0xEC: SESSION_HAS_VALID_SPECIAL_POOL_ON_EXIT
0xF7A8F75C = Bug Check 0xF7: DRIVER_OVERRAN_STACK_BUFFER
0xF7A8F458 = Bug Check 0xF7: DRIVER_OVERRAN_STACK_BUFFER
The last 2 (0xF7) show the cause could be:
A driver overran a stack-based buffer (or local variable) in a way that would have overwritten the function's return address and jumped back to an arbitrary address when the function returned.
This is the classic "buffer overrun" hacking attack
. The system has been brought down to prevent a malicious user from gaining complete control of it.
How do I take the above information and correct the issue. I do not know how to debug.... which is something a few of the issue's mentioned doing to resolve.
Any further help is appreciated.
