Hello all,

For awhile now my computer has been much slower than it used to be, and I've tried almost everything I can think of: I've run Mcafee Stinger, Spybot, Mcafee virusscan, I've defragged, run a registry cleanup, run chkdsk, and run the windows components check.

I've tried to just live with the problem, but I am also getting stop messages every once in a while:

"Device driver was caught trying to corrupt the system" 0x00000c4

And others that all have to do with drivers somehow or another.

Here are my specs:

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 Laptop w/:

Taken directly from DirectX Diagnostic. Does anyone have any idea how to locate the driver that could be causing this problem? I've tried using driver verifier, but I don't really know how to use it. Anyway, any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Have a look in the Event Viewer for any errors at the time of the freezes.

To open the Event Viewer go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer. Alternately, go to Start > Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Check in all three categories (Application, Security, and System).

If you find an error that occurred at the time of the stop error right-click on it and select properties. Copy the information in the window and post it back here. This will help us diagnose your problem.

Hey, thanks helping me out with this.

I got this error when I got the stop message:

System Error
Error code 000000c4, parameter1 00001001, parameter2 89d25038, parameter3 8a44d208, parameter4 00000000.

Does this help? Anything else you need, just let me know.

Thanks

0x000000C4: DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION
This is the general bug check code for fatal errors that the Driver Verifier finds. The accompanying parameters are the parameters that are passed to KeBugCheckEx and displayed on a blue screen.

Here are two Microsoft articles related to the error message.
