Hi, my computer has been crashing for the past couple of weeks (i'm running windows XP). Usually I'll be surfing the internet or doing something online and after about an hour of being online (sometimes more frequent) it will come up with the blue screen of death and crash (i'm running firefox). The error I get is stop:0x00000050 (0xFe8EA000, 0x00000000, 0xF4D01DA0, 0x00000000) Page fault in nonpaged area, tcpip.sys address F4D01DAO base at F4CB7000, Datastamp 485b99ad. I'm good with computers but I don't know much about error messages, registrys and the more advanced stuff so if you guys could walk me through it I'd really appreciate it. Thank you so much this error is super annoying.

Crashing and shutdown problems can be symptomatic of a variety of things to include hardware or overheating problems caused by a failed processor fan, bad memory (RAM), failing or underpowered power supply, CPU overheating, motherboard, video card, faulty drivers, CMOS battery going bad, BIOS and firmware problems, dirty hardware components, and even malware. If the computer is overheating, it usually begins to shutdown/restart on a more regular basis. Start here first:

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down...STOP: 0x00000050
STOP: 0x00000050 Page_Fault_In_Non-Paged_Area Error

i'm running windows XP

Why have you not updated to SP2 or SP3?

I went on the microsoft site you provided and followed the directions to remove the malware but none of those files were found on my computer so I guess we can rule that one out. It will do this even when it is on battery power so its unlikely its the power supply. There are times it will do the bsod then I will restart it and a few minutes after restarting i'll get the bsod again. Just before it began doing this a month ago I had installed a program for my wireless router but I have since uninstalled that and it is still giving me problems, I figured since it says its an issue with tcpip.sys could it be possible whatever changes the drivers made might have affected that file. I looked into it though and that file has not been modified. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Oh and I have windows xp sp 3, sorry for not specifying earlier. Thanks.
