This happens SEVERAL times aday, I am right in the middle of something and my computer just reboots. It might do it 4 or 5 times in a row and then it will work ok. It seems to be getting worse. I receive the message below when I report to Microsoft. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :flowers: :thumbsup:


Problem caused by Device Driver

You received this message because a device driver installed on your computer caused the Windows operating system to stop unexpectedly. This type of error is referred to as a "stop error." A stop error requires you to restart your computer.

Step One: Follow the instructions in Disable Auto Reboot On System Crash - http://www.theeldergeek.com/auto_reboot_on_system_crash.htm

Step Two: Read info at What is the Event Viewer, and Should I Care - Ask Leo! - http://ask-leo.com/what_is_the_event_viewe...uld_i_care.html

Step Three: Take a look in your Event Viewer. You are looking for errors, particularly those which occur at about the same time as your reboot problems. If you see none, make a note to check EV the next time your system reboots and advise us of the corresponding error message.

Have you added any hardware/functions lately?

One thing to remember: Drivers also occur in some applications (firewall, music/video programs, AV and others), so it's not just hardware that could be creating the problem.

Also check Device Manager expand all of the +'s and look for any yellow exclamation points or red X's. That's an indication of the faulty device

Looks like I was having problems with Adobe Photoshop so I uninstalled it. I turned off the auto reboot. The computer rebooted twice now with the blue screen with the following message:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to be sure you have adeqate space. If the driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for the driver updates. Try changing video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanaced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical information:

***STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005,0x805020B5,0xBADC747C,0x00000000)

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for futher assistatance.

WHAT SHOULD I DO? THANKS :flowers: :thumbsup:

Also checked Device Manager and expanded all and saw NO +'s and NO yellow exclamation points or red X's.

Under the event viewer there are red x's by Service Control Manger and DCOM at the times I had the blue screen.

the inside of the computer is clean? and it's not overheating?

these are some of the easiest things to check and fix

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Are you running ZoneAlarm?
