I just got the blue screen of death. And it said this:
PFN_LIST_CORRUPT

*STOP: 0x0000004E (0x0000008F, 0x000334BF, 0xFFFFFFFF, 0x00000000)

I believe it said it could be from a bad device driver. What do you think?

It also said something about the cache. I'm not sure now I'll definately put more information up later if it happens again.

If it said something about a bad driver look in your device manager and see if there are any yellow or red warning icons in any of the devices.

Let us know.

doesn't seem as if anything is wrong with the drivers. I recently put in a new driver for my videocard a couple days ago. B/C i was having problems with it before. So I downloaded a driver for it disabled the previous driver and installed a new one. I have an EVGA E-Geforce 6600 GT PCI-E.

This sure looks like she did.

So I downloaded a driver for it disabled the previous driver and installed a new one


Perhaps the system is still looking for the old driver because it hasn't been uninstalled, just disabled?

i have seen a CHKDSK /r from recovery console fix this issue a few times. If you have never been in the recovery console you will either need the XP cd or the 6 boot disks from the microsoft web site. once you boot to the cd or use the 6 boot floppies then on the first screen press R for recovery console. once in there press 1 then enter and if it asks for administrator password if there is none then just press enter. at the c:\windows> type in chkdsk /r and make sure that there is a space between the k and the \.

good luck

P>S> also been known to happen with the video card not having the most up to date driver but if you already have that then try to roll back the driver aswell.

So if it's been uninstalled ...

If none of the other suggestions work, you might try these:

System File Checker

Windows XP comes with a utility that will scan Windows system files on your computer and replace them if they seem to have modified or deleted. This is an important tool as there are many viruses and malware that will intentionally delete certain Windows system files. The System File Checker uses different arguments to change its behavior and are described below:

/SCANNOW - You would use this argument to make the SFC tool immediately check your computer for missing or changed system files.

/SCANONCE - You would use this argument to make the SFC tool check your computer for missing or changed system files on the next reboot.

/SCANBOOT - You would use this argument to make the SFC tool check your computer for missing or changed system files every time it boots up.

For most situations, you can just type: sfc /scannow to immediately have it run and check for the altered/deleted files.

From the Windows XP Recovery Features

i'm a him :thumbsup:


Sorry about that: I have been hanging around folks from Korea, China, and Taiwan so long that sometimes I make their kinds of errors. They have ONE pronoun that covers both he and she - wish I could say the same for English: it would solve a lot of writing and speaking issues...
