I'm getting a BSOD 0xA, here are 3 of them I have used MCATS available from AMD's website to attempt to decipher the event log but haven't been able to figure it out, their readme and /help is completely useless to someone who hasn't done it before.

things that have been elimated
  • video card /*switched my nvidia out to an ATI and isntalled new driver, no effect*/
  • SFC scan
  • repair install
  • chkdsk
  • all caps on MOBO are good
  • I attempted opening the event log in notepad and there where a couple places where "AMD" was listed so I reinstalled AMD driver along with dual core optimizer.


Error code 0000000a, parameter1 0000ba33, parameter2 00000002, parameter3 00000001, parameter4 806e6a8e.
Error code 1000000a, parameter1 0000bab3, parameter2 00000002, parameter3 00000001, parameter4 806e6a8e.
Error code 1000000a, parameter1 0000ffdf, parameter2 00000002, parameter3 00000001, parameter4 806e6a8e.

if I'm not mistaken parameter 4 is the address of the instruction within the driver causing the error.
source: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314063

If someone could help me to find out what driver that is that would be fantastic.
no files are listed in the BSoD

I also get random freezing on the same machine /*no event log is generated*/, I suspect it's being cause by the same issue

XP pro SP3 w/ all of the most recent updates
athlon X2 3800+
2 1 gig sticks in dual channel mode and 2 512 sticks in dual channel also
GeForce 8400 GS

This was likely caused by the following module: ntkrnlpa.exe

looks like bad kernel files, I would have thought SFC would fix that but I guess not. I had disk controller issues when windows was first installed on this machine so I'm assuming that's what caused this? would I be right? anything I can do besides format, since I've tried repair install and many other things? chkdsk has also been ran a number of times already

I'd start with first 2 errors, since they're pretty fresh ones.

*** 1st error, in many cases would indicate RAM problem, or overheating.
1. Run Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool: http://www.geekstogo...ol-t177564.html
2. Download, and install SpeedFan: http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php
Post your computer temperatures:

Provide processor info (hold Windows key, and hit Pause/Break key to find out).

*** 2nd error - afd.sys is a part of the TCP/IP stack in Windows
1. Go Start>Run (Start search in Vista), type in:
cmd
Click OK (in Vista, while holding CTRL, and SHIFT, press Enter).

At Command Prompt, type in:
netsh int ip reset reset.log
Hit Enter.
Type in:
netsh winsock reset catalog
Hit Enter.

Restart computer.

2. Download, install, and run WinSockFix: http://www.softpedia...inSockFix.shtml
Restart computer, and check again.

I've had speed fan installed for some time. under normal load (about all this machine sees is large amounts of files moving from one drive to another)all temps are at or below 55C, there are 2 that are at 127C but that's only because there are headers on the mobo for thermometers that aren't being used. (that's the max temp they will read) I'll run memtest 86 overnight and see what that gives me. although I'm fairly certain RAM has been switched out already

all temps are at or below 55C

What do you mean by normal load? Idle?
The above temps look little bit high for desktop.
My AMD doesn't cross 30C, unless I'm using some heavy program like video burning program (20 degrees up).

Which model of athlon X2 3800+ is it?

athlon X2 3800+ (Manchester) Socket 939 max. temp. is listed at 65° C
athlon X2 3800+ (Windsor) (Windsor) Socket AM2 max. temp. is listed at 78° C

by idle or normal load I mean someone maybe surfing the net. I've never tested temp when I'm moving files but all my problems occur when the machine is either completely idle (like being left over night) or getting very light use

it's the 939 version, I had the same identicle setup running as an exchange server at one time (I just needed a server for a couple days so I just used spare parts) and it ended up with the same temps when it wasn't being used.

Can you post SpeedFan screenshot, or simply type down the results?
