windows will freeze and/or reboot for seemingly no reason at random. this problem has been going on for a while (6+ months) and no matter what i do with the software (reformat, virus scan etc) nothing seems to be helping. i cant afford new hardware so maybe im missing something completely. when windows starts back up after a reboot i get this error msg

BCCode : 100000d1 BCP1 : 000000C0 BCP2 : 00000002 BCP3 : 00000000
BCP4 : F454636B OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 768_1




can anyone translate?

You may have a heat issue. When was the lst time the inside of your computer was cleaned? Especially the fans and the processor heatsink?

Did you ever attempt to overclock your computer? If you're overclocking your processor may be overheating.

There could be a number of issues at hand here.

1) Do you have anything connected via USB? If so dsconnect and retry
2) Please check your harddisk with manufacteres utilities. If you are not sure please post make and serial and we can find the right utilities for you

I have a feeling that this is a faulty hardware issue.

you guys are beautiful.

i'm going to try cleaning the computer first, its been a while since ive done that and it does rest on carpet.

acklan, props for the link.

monty, i turned off the auto restart and i'll post a report first thing on next crash. im also gonna check my comps HDD manufacturer, i forget who it is but i'll find out when i clean it.

as for the USB ports yes, i have my wireless adapter plugged in. what is the issue with that? just curious how could a usb device make my computer reboot.

ive never attempted to overclock my computer.

thanks again guys for being quick and responsive.

computer is still hard locking, even after cleanup.

i tried checking windows event viewer, but nothing is recorded upon crashing. the system simply locks up.

The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.


You can rule out the RAM by using this free tool to test it: http://www.memtest86.com/

You can reset your pagefile by following this link: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic71367.html#

And if that doesn't fix it, then you've gotta start looking for more info on the crashes in order to figure out what driver is causing it:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...tml#entry409491

Finally, if you can't get a clue as to what driver's doing it, then you'll have to remove all non-essential devices from the system (and uninstall them also) - then update the drivers for what's left.

Most common driver errors are caused by (in no particular order):
Motherboard/chipset drivers
Video Drivers
Sound Drivers
Network Drivers
