My computer has recently been restarting by itself, without any signs or notice, thats it's going to happen. It seems to restart just fine, but when windows loads up I encounter a windows error that reads

BCCode : 100000d1 BCP1 : 00000008 BCP2 : 00000002 BCP3 : 00000000
BCP4 : BA61EBEF OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 256_1

When I ask for more info on the error i get these two paths

C:\DOCUME~1\Julian\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERabdc.dir00\Mini112106-01.dmp
C:\DOCUME~1\Julian\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERabdc.dir00\sysdata.xml...

I am currently running Windows XP Pro SP2, as well as Vista on a 2nd HD, with 2.40 GHz Core Duo Intel Processor, 2Gigs Ram, NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS (256MB) Vedio Adapter, And a TEW-623PI Wireless N Draft PCI Adapter.

If anyone has any idea as to whats going on I'd really appriciate some extra help...

Most likely a bad device driver - but can also be caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

What have you done to the system lately (either when this started happening or just before it)? The littlest thing can help us to figure it out.

After that, I'd start with testing the RAM and recreating the pagefile (because it's easier than searching for the driver). If that didn't turn up anything, then we'd start looking for a suspect driver.

With your system specs, I'd suspect that you're doing a bit of tweaking or overclocking. If so, you'll have to shut it all off and return everything to default values for the troubleshooting (to include any BIOS tweaks, custom drivers, etc).

Well, the RAM is brand new... As are all of the parts of the computer. I just put it together about a month ago. It may be a driver, but if that is the case i would have no idea which driver it could be since I have assembled the computer so recently. So, where would I start in order to test the RAM and recreate a pagefile?

vinc - please start your own thread for your problem. On that thread, please list your detailed system specs.

Jay8604 -

Here's a link to a free memory tester: http://www.memtest86.com/ Please read the instructions thoroughly and let the test run for a minimum of 2 hours (overnight is better). If you start getting errors, then the RAM may be the culprit (so you can stop the test). If you've got multiple sticks of RAM - try testing them one at a time (and in different slots) in order to rule out the different sticks and slots as being the problem.

Here's some directions on how to recreate your pagefile: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...st&p=389845
