Hey thving ere -
Thanks for taking the time to read this...my computer all of a sudden has been having random glitches and the screen will black out for a moment and then come back on. Eventually I will get the dreaded blue screen of death...I've written down the last few stop messages that have popped up:
1)PFN_List_Corrupt stop: 0X0000004E
2)IRQL_Not_Less_or_equal stop: 0X0000000A
3)special_pool_detected_memory_corruption stop: 0X000000C1

based on what I've been reading, everyone says its generally either a RAM problem or a driver problem or possibly something like a fan problem...is this correct? Not really sure what to do about it...trying to avoid erasing everything on my HD and trying to reinstall everything...please help

THANKS!!

The answer with blue screens is it Depends.

Have you installed or removed any software recently?
What do you tippicly use your computer for?
Have you added or removed any hardware recently?
Have you hurd any odd noises comming from your computer?
Has your computer become slow?
How often do you get the Blue screens?

The only thing I have really added was a printer and some windows updates, and actually about a month ago, a wireless networking card. I even tried to uninstall the printer and the driver, but that didn't help. I use my computer for multiple things, but mainly word processing and playing music. I havent really noticed any unusual noises coming from the cpu and the bsods just started about 3 or 4 days ago. Basically when my computer is on it will start glitching and will randomly black out and come back on...it will do this over and over again and eventually turn into a bsod. The thing is the computer works fine with no problems in safe mode (not sure if that is normal). any ideas?

We want to run the offline crash diagnostics to get a quick snapshot at what could possibly be the problem with you getting Blue screen error messages.

First we want to download the offline crash diagnostic. You can obtain that here
Now we want to Run the Offline Crash Diagnostic tool
After you save the WindowsXP-KB923800-ENU.exe file, follow these steps:

1. Double-click the WindowsXP-KB923800-ENU.exe file to install the Offline Crash Diagnostic tool.
The installer adds the Offline Crash Diagnostic tool files to the %Windir%\Pchealth\Helpctr\Binaries folder.
2. Click Start, click Run, type ocadiagnostic.exe ,and then click OK to run the Offline Crash Diagnostic tool.
3. Agree to let the tool send information to Microsoft. Then, click Next.
The tool performs the following tasks:

• The tool determines the number of dump files on the computer.
• The tool finds any dump files that are located in the %Windir%\Minidump folder. You can choose to send all the dump files, or you can choose to send individual dump files.
Note The last 10 dump files to be created are collected. Dump files are not collected if they are more than one year old.
• The tool automatically sends the dump files to the Office Crash Diagnostic Microsoft database Web site for analysis.
• The tool downloads the response URLs.
• The tool displays the response IDs. The tool also provides hyperlinks to the Office Crash Diagnostic Web site.

Go ahead and report back the Responce IDS with your next post.
