I have been getting a few blue screens so I am running WinDbg...which reads the dump file but i dont understand it!! I could paste it here if anyone knows what it means.
Yep I have loaded the symbol file for this machine and it is the mini dump.Lost_but_Happy said:Have you loaded the proper symbol file for your machine (either downloaded it or run it off the MS server)?
Also, are you getting the full dump, mini dump or the one in between?
Beyond that, the last one that I had was pretty clear at one point where it pointed directly at the problem .sys file (said something like, "likely problem is whatever.sys).
Thanks AJ for your help .. I was thinking of updating my bios I still have the one that came with my MB.Lost_but_Happy said:Last suggestion before I hand it over to someone more qualified..
This site mentions an except from a MS page that states either problems with the BIOS or one of the processors is a possible problem.
Unfortunately, the guy with the post doesn't show an answer for it yet. However, it could help you rule things out. ??
Hi Hal...thanks for the advice. Yes I have overclocked the cpu but not the video card. Its been fine running at this speed for a long period. It is a 64 bit OS and I am running 2 sticks of Memory that total 4 gigs not sure if that make a diff instead of 4 sticks. My temps are in the mid 40c. and cpu is watercooled. I will try and see if upgrading the bios might fix this problem before i look deeper.LodiHal said:Nelson,
NTKRNLMP.EXE is a version of the Windows NT kernel that allows you to use more than one processor, including your quad core. It is installed during the original Windows setup process. (NTOSKRNL.EXE will get loaded instead of NTKRNLMP.EXE, if a single processor will be used.) Like Lost asked, have you installed any new software lately?
Upgrading your BIOS won't hurt anything, and occasionally it will correct this problem. (Microcode error in the BIOS)
Are you overclocking either the CPU or video card? That will do this.
Overheating issue in the CPU or motherboard? That too will cause this error.
Is this a 64 bit OS? Try taking out one stick of memory and test. Trust me on this... 4 gigs sometimes conflict with video cards on a 64 bit system.
Let us know...
