Hi team,
I am hoping that someone could give me some advice as to what to do now with my laptop. Hope this is the correct bit on the "board" to post it.

Since the 5th April while collecting Farmville gifts off my Facebook page my laptop has randomly BSOD & rebooted. I followed recommendations to do virus scans which came up empty with Avast (free) Bootscans also showed nothing. According to the control panel the only recent updates had been adobe reader as far as I could see so I removed them, there has been no hardware or software upgrades done. Windows updates are done up to date, I even downloaded AVG free & ran that, it did come up with some cookies but nothing too exciting, in the rootscan that I ran it did find something out of place so I told it to remove that (sorry I didn't get its name)
It was only today that I discovered that you could stop the computer from re-booting automatically so I was able to get the following message/codes IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL & *** STOP 0x0000000A (0xFFFFFFF0, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804E2284)

It doesn't happen all the time, just totally randomally, I can be doing the same things over & over again (collecting Farmville gifts off the wall) & nothing then the next time bam! BSOD! It doesn't happen at any other time & it can go a day or so without doing it then off it goes again

I didn't know if it was something in my laptop's hardware that was dying so I was going to download a RAM stress tester to see if anything was on the way out & that that's what the problem was.

After the problems started I did back-up my information, I would have just done a system re-boot but that setting had been turned off.

I still have my original XP discs & was wondering whether to just do a clean install & see what happened but if it was caused by an update then it would just happen again. My other thought was to upgrade to Windows 7, after running the update advisor it says that my system can handle it.

Thanks in advance for your help, I'm not extremely computer savvy but I'll do my best to follow your instructions.

Cheers,
Jodie :)

0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
(Click to consult the online MSDN article.)
Typically due to a bad driver, or faulty or incompatible hardware or software. Use the General Troubleshooting of STOP Messages checklist above. Technically, this error condition means that a kernel-mode process or driver tried to access a memory location to which it did not have permission, or at a kernel Interrupt ReQuest Level (IRQL) that was too high. (A kernel-mode process can access only other processes that have an IRQL lower than, or equal to, its own.)



Go to

Start and then to Run
Type in Chkdsk /r Note the space between k and /
Click Enter ...It will probably ask if you want to do this on the next reboot...click Y
If the window doesn't shutdown on its own then reboot the system manually. On reboot the system will start the chkdsk operation
This one will take longer then chkdsk /f

Note... there are 5 stages...
It may appear to hang at a certain percent for a hour or more or even back up and go over the same area...this is normal...
DO NOT SHUT YOUR COMPUTER DOWN WHILE CHKDSK IS RUNNING OR YOU CAN HAVE SEVERE PROBLEMS
This can take several hours to complete.
When completed it will boot the system back into windows.

Reboot after your done running chkdsk /r...
then Go to Start...Run and type: eventvwr.msc press Enter
When Event Viewer opens, click on Applications... then scroll down to [b]Winlogon]/b] and double-click on it. This is the log created after running Checkdisk...copy and paste the log back here


We will advise after studying the log.

Go Start and then to Run ("Start Search" in Vista),
Type in: sfc /scannow
Click OK (Enter in Vista).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy.
If System File Checker (sfc) finds any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD.
If sfc does not find any errors in Windows XP, it will simply quit, without any message.
In Vista you will receive the following message: "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations".

For Vista users ONLY: Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder. You'll see CBS.log file.
Usually, it's pretty big file, so upload it to Flyupload, and post download link.


If you don't have Windows CD....
This applies mostly to Windows XP, since Vista rarely requires use of its DVD while running "sfc"
Note This method will not necessarily work as well, as when using Windows CD, because not always ALL system files are backed up on your hard drive. Also, backed up files may be corrupted as well.

Go Start and then Run
type in regedit and click OK


Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

You will see various entries Values on the right hand side.

The one we want is called: SourcePath

It probably has an entry pointing to your CD-ROM drive, usually D and that is why it is asking for the XP CD.
All we need to do is change it to: C:
Now, double click the SourcePatch setting and a new box will pop up.
Change the drive letter from your CD drive to your root drive, usually C:
Close Registry Editor.

Now restart your computer and try sfc /scannow again!


Thanks to Broni for the instructions



Revised and Simplified:


Do you have a valid XP CD?

If so, place it in your CD ROM drive and follow the instructions below:
  • Click on Start and select Run... type sfc /scannow (note the space) (Let this run undisturbed until the window with the blue progress bar goes away)

SFC
- Which stands for System File Checker,
retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.
If you want to see what was replaced, right-click My Computer and click on Manage. In the new window that appears, expand the Event Viewer (by clicking on the + symbol next to it) and then click on System.

I don't actually have the XP CD that is currently installed on this computer (my Mum's partner bought it & the code/key home from work & took all the CD's when he moved out)
I do have another XP CD that was from my other laptop, would that be of any use or would it just confuse things not being the same CD that was installed on this laptop?

Ok, so I went through the registry & found the source path & changed it to C:/ rather then D:/ & then restarted my laptop as per Broni instructions.

When it restarted I ran sfc /scannow

It came up with a box stating
Files that are required for Windows to run properly must be copied to the DLL cache.
Insert your Windows XP Professional CD-ROM now.

Did I miss something?

Nope you didn't miss anything. It happens when something it needs cannot be found. Click enter or retry and see if it keeps going.
If not then you will have to borrow a XP cd. The one for your laptop will not work.

What would be the difference with borrowing an XP cd to using the other one that I've got? It's the original Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Includes Service Pack 1 disc that I have, I just didn't use it when I installed XP on this laptop as it was already in use on another laptop which has since "passed on".
If it's a matter of the codes/key not matching then the same would hold true with a borrowed cd wouldn't it?
Sorry to seem vague.

I will keep trying the sfc /scannow & if it says to skip the file yes or no I could just try yes & see what happens instead of cancelling it?

The one you mentioned is from a laptop and usually does not work with these steps.
Is the laptop one a full version or is it a recovery disk for the laptop?

it's a full version, I just looked for a recovery disc & no luck.
So the only disc that I have is a full version of Windows XP that isn't the same disc that was used on this laptop's install. It isn't in use currently (the full version on the other disc) as the laptop that it was on originally has since died & been buried.

If the disc is full version then it should work. You are not reinstalling but only checking the System Files with this step.

So I'll stick that disc in & then run the sfc /scannow?
Should I do a backup or something first? It's not going to automatically reinstall XP is it?
Sorry to seem paranoid.

** well I tried to run it & put the cd in when it asked & it told me
The CD you provided is the wrong CD.
Please insert the Windows XP Professional CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive

So I can't get any further either with or without it :)

Nope no reinstall as you found out. :)
Now you need to borrow a XP Pro cd to do the step.

Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

12 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. 8 third party drivers have been identified to be causing system crashes on your computer. It is strongly suggested that you check for updates for these drivers on their company websites. Click on the links below to search with Google for updates for these drivers:

aswsp.sys (avast! self protection module, AVAST Software)

nv4_disp.dll (NVIDIA Compatible Windows 2000 Display driver, Version 174.82 , NVIDIA Corporation)

If no updates for these drivers are available, try searching with Google on the names of these drivers in combination the errors that have been reported for these drivers and include the brand and model name of your computer as well in the query. This often yields interesting results from discussions from users who have been experiencing similar problems.


Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is actually responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.
