i have a feeling the problem is w/ the c drive and the irq it's on, but not sure...

long story short i had to reinstall windows. no matter what i change the power management settings to it will restart the computer if it's inactive for 20 or so min...i tried using windows scan disk on rebooting but it gives me a IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error (or something close to that, i can redo it and tell you exactly if needed.)

i downloaded system mechanic and tried scanning the computer w/ that but whenever i try to scan the c drive windows restarts.

and lastly a 'the system has recovered from a serious error' window keeps popping up over and over and over again

the error signature is:
BCCode : a BCP1 : 00000166 BCP2 : 00000002 BCP3 : 00000000
BCP4 : 804ECF8E OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 0_0 Product : 768_1

and the contents are:
C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini052706-20.dmp
C:\DOCUME~1\Nobody\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER10.tmp.dir00\sysdata.xml

so i was thinking maybe the hard drive got put somewhere that is conflicting or something? does anyone have any idea?

thanks

When the computer automatically reboots it usually gives you a blue screen with some information on it. If you are not seeing this blue screen go to:

Start > right click on My Computer > Properties > Advanced tab > Startup and Recovery Settings

Uncheck Automatically Restart

Click Apply and then OK

Now when your computer wants to reboot you will receive a blue screen, and the computer will pause on it and you will have to reboot manually.

The 'Blue Screen of Death' (or BSOD) is refered to by Microsoft as a Stop Message. They can occur for many reasons. In order to diagnose it's cause we need as much info as you can give about the stop message. Please write it down and post it back here the next time it happens. In particular, it helps to have the somewhat cryptic series of numbers about half way down the blue screen that have this sort of format:

0x0000008E (Followed by four other sets of numbers in parenthesis.)

For now the first set of numbers (before the parenthesis) are the important thing.

Have you installed any other hardware? Especially USB. Unplug all USB devices, if you have any.

i unchecked the Automatically Restart option and now it will go to a windows screen saver then freeze instead of rebooting or it will be stuck with the power light on but the monitor is black and flashing.

but i did get the error from check disk

now that acklan mentions it it started acting this way when i installed the software for my digital camera which connects via usb. but it happens when the cable's not even plugged in.

Unistall the software. Have you tried booting into Safe Mode and using "Last known Good configuration"?

You are receiving a 0x0A stop message.

0x0A stop message info can be found HERE. Scroll down the page to: A Stop 0x0A error after Windows XP is already installed

This just confirms that the other capable responders in this thread are on the right track!

Good luck!

ok, i tried a few things and still get the error.

looking in the hardware profile there is a problem w/ the ethernet controller. the adaptor is installed fine but the controller has a '?' w/ an '!' kinda in it. it says it is not installed properly and no driver assigned.

when i view it by connection it says the ethernet adaptor and USB host controller are on the same in the irq section. the ehternet controller isn't sharing anything

**edit, i tried using the last known good settings but i still get the same error

If you know exactly when the problem began Windows System Restore would be the easiest fix.


If that is not possible or doesn't cure the problem, go to the device manager and delete any devices that have a yellow or red warning icon - one at a time with a reboot and then a reboot after Windows reinstalls the device.

yeah, i've tried that, the wizard won't finish installing it b/c it can't find any software for it. i've tried a few files but none are the right one

When updating the drivers Windows should give you a choice of using Windows Updates to obtain the drivers.

If Windows Updates doesn't have what you need, download the updated drivers from the manufacturer's websites and save them to where you can find them easily. Then use the wizard to install them.

If you do not know exactly what hardware is installed that you need the drivers for, download Everest Home Edition v1.51 (the last full featured freeware version of Everest) from oldversion.com. It will be in the utilities section.

Install it and run it. It will show you all hardware (and software) installed in your computer and may even have links for updating the drivers.
