...it restarts fine and works until the next time.....

Hey There,

Not sure what is triggering this or what's going on. I use adaware and spybot regularly. I have Symnatec antivirus and nothing seems to be going on according to it. I had a problem with my computer where it just shut off and would not restart, I took it in to the PC guy in town and he "fixed it" This was months ago (5 or 6). Now this blue screen thing taking over my PC randomly is new, happedn twice in the last two days, and I think 2 more times in the last 2 or 3 months. Not sure what causes it, please help if you can. I will try and write down the exact msg when it happens again. Should I post a Hijack this log? Also, I tried scanning my PC with housecall.trendmicro and it won't let me, nothing happens when I try to load it up.

Have you check the Event Viewer in the Administrative Tools for error messages?
Try running Memtest86.com Memory Diagnostic to see if you may have a bad memory module.

Hey Guys,

This is what the blue screen says:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.


If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen apprears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware of software manufacturer for any windows updates you may need. If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as Caching or Shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced start up options, and then select safe mode.

Technical Information:

***STOP:0x000000077 (0x000009C, 0xc000009C, 0x00000000, 0x06358000)

Begin dump of physical memory.

This is what pops up when I restart it:

The system has recovered from a serious error.


BCCode : 77 BCP1 : C000009C BCP2 : C000009C BCP3 : 00000000
BCP4 : 04355000 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 256_1

What does this mean and what should I do? I did not install any new hard or software. I did plug in a PDA once into a USB port and it didn't work. I dunno if that would have caused anything though.

THANK YOU :thumbsup:

Here's a brief explanation of the error message: http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php#0x77

As one of the possible causes is a virus infection, it's important to first scan the system for malware even though you already have an anitvirus installed. This is "in case" a virus has "hijacked" your antivirus protection. I'd suggest this free, online scan: http://safety.live.com/

Once you're sure that the system is clean, then you can proceed with some more tests.

Run the Memtest that Acklan suggested. Let it run for 2 or 3 passes (but overnight is better).

Remake your pagefile following these instructions (in case of pagefile corruption): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic71367.html#

Run chkdsk /f /r from the Run dialog. It'll tell you that it can't run right now and will ask you if you want to run it on the next reboot. Select Yes and then reboot.

Runa diagnostic utility (available for free from the manufacturer of your hard drive0 to see if the disk is OK.
