STOP: 0x0000000A (0xF8A262C0, 0x...2, 0x...1, 0x804D9B68)

XP Home, SP3

NB Been advised by m0le to come here after days at malware forum will no fix... Posted as 'all started with KB977165' lots of log and report files there.

Followed numerous fixes (including http://support.microsoft.com/kb/979682) see posts in pervious forum... but same BSOD still there.... sometimes when I boot - sometimes it is good for an hour?

Dazed and confused and would welcome any help to try and sort it out before I set fire to the damm thing :thumbsup:

Thank You

Den

PS Sorry but I have not found a way to move form one forum to another yet.

EDIT: Removed malware removal logs attached, no bearing on current problem...not allowed in XP forum ~ Hamluis.

Download/install BlueScreenView - http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html.

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.

When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items. Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

FWIW: The error you cited is a very general one. See OA in left column at http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.htm.

BSOD.txt is too big for an attachment (over 500K) but the the two entries in the previous reply are just duplicated lots of times...

Interesting... as the Intel onborad wireless chip was updated with some new drivers for WPA2 (i think) at some stage and I did (attempt) to uninstall a external USB wiFi when the problem began (after the KB 977165 problem started) and I was looking for reasons.

and I have sepnt all that time and effort hunting virus :thumbsup:

What is you analysis?

We will focus on the two most recent BSODs.

Looking at the errors, it looks like your wireless lan driver is in trouble. I suggest uninstalling the drivers (via Device Manager) and then reinstalling same. A common reason for drivers suddenly proving troublesome...they have become damaged (files become damaged all the time in Windows). Uninstall it first...then reinstall it.

You can use the drivers which are on the CD for the system...or you can go to the appropriate website and download new ones. I tend to stick with older ones which are known to work, rather than update and take chances of failure.

The error you posted going back 2 years...is not worthy of attention. What went wrong 2 years ago won't hurt you today...and, if it does, it will produce a more recent BSOD and error message.

System manufacturer and model?

I don't have the CD and not 100% certain how to get the correct driver given if I get it wrong I loose access to the net etc... I assume I should get the driver before I uninstall etc....

How would you suggest I go about it without screwing up? :thumbsup:

System manufacturer and model -
Intel® PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI adaptor
Driver 1.2.1.4 13/10/2003

NB the Intel automatic update site did not recognise my current driver - bit of a worry!

Thanks for your help and understanding

Drivers, Fujitsu Lifebook Series S, 6120

The last XP driver is the one that you need to install...after removing the current one installed.

Guys

It is looking good only one BSOD (page fault?) since I installed new WiFi driver - fantastic.

Will give the PC a hard time over next couple of days and confirm it is fixed.

Thank You for your help so far.

Den

PS Just thinking given that this came form nowhere... is there any easy way that I can check all my drivers / system files are up-to-date / 100%?

A fairly common opinion among experienced users...is that a system only needs drivers updated...when a given function is not working properly.

I know that various entities have fostered the concept that users need to continuously update all drivers...all the time...ad infinitum...but I don't agree with this perspective.

I don't replace hardware system components which are working well...why should I replace the drivers for such when they are working as intended?

I take the same view regarding "driver updating" as I do regarding "BIOS updating"...if it ain't broke, don't break it :thumbsup:.

Driver updates should not be treated in the same manner that XP critical updates should be treated (continuous, timely updating).

Others may have differing opinions, particularly those who are marketing or otherwise proactive in behalf of needless programs like Driver Detective...and those who don't understand the relationship between drivers, hardware components, and XP.

I always keep my drivers updated regardless if my previous drivers are running just fine. Driver updates also add functionality and boost performance, and the same goes for BIOS updates. I am constantly checking to make sure my BIOS is the absolute latest, and my computer runs 100% stable and is 100% reliable with anything I throw at it.

I perform updates on all my computers from software to hardware related drivers, and not one single issue with any of the computers. They run beautifully.

The if it aint broke theory shouldn't apply to computing. It distracts the users from properly maintaining their computers and keeping up with the latest patches. Would you highly advise someone to hook a pre-SP1 XP Machine to the internet? After all if it aint broke dont fix it right?
