I was doing some internet surfing, and got an 'unexpected shutdown' ........blue screen and message I've never seen before.
Event name : Blue Screen
OS version : 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
Locale ID - 1033
BC Code : a
BCP1 : FFFFF6FB41EFBFAO
Service Pack :1_0
for the record the screen broke up into lines, then went to black. I tried to start in safe mode, then restore from an earlier point............after several tries and several other blue screens and error messages. The restoration was deemed successful, but the problem kept happening.
I'd get the following message off and on, depending on whether or not the machine would get to the startup..........."windows has recovered from an unexpected shut down".
then back to the blue screen and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_eQUAL
this launched a startup repair > attempting repairs> repairing disk errors > and it restarted but the same thing kept happening.
Other messages were like:
"Windows did not shut down successfully" and "page fault in non-paged area"
I restored to a point about 2 weeks ago, and even though the restore was completed successfully the unexpected shutdown occured again.......with the screen broken up into lines.....
NOTE: THIS FOLLOWED A DOWNLOAD OF A 'CRITICAL MICROSOFT UPDATE'.
Any idea what I need to do?
