Random reboots! Need serious help
 
Well first of i got a new 300gb maxtor 1 month ago. After the first install i thought the drive was bad but ran the maxtor diagnostic tools and rewrote the mbrand all was great. Well once in a while, maybe once before and twice today, the computer will reboot and when i log back in it will say Windows as recovered from a critical or serious error blah blah blah.

Running xp pro with sp2


Now Last night i was ripping a movie to my e:Movie partition on the 300gb, as well dling 2 2+gig files to the same partition. Could this be my problem?

I get this when playing games as well after a certain time at random.

The error signature is
BCCode : 100000d1 BCP1 : 00008694 BCP2 : 00000007 BCP3 : 00000000
BCP4 : F78451D0 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 256_1

following will be added in error report

error code in event viewer
Error code 100000d1

2 files are also listed. sysdata or something like that and a minidump file

what messages do you have in Event logs? (control panel/administrative tools/event viewer) The System logs should tell you more info(the errors should be the ones of some interrest to you). If you see any device error, reinstall the device's driver and see if it's the same.

I turned off reboot so i can get the BSOD

It says a problem lied within Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

ok that driver_not_less_or_equal is telling you that your Firewire driver is crashing the system. CHeck your event logs as hoinar suggested, then uninstall and reinstall any firewire port drivers you have on the system. Better yet, if you aren't using firewire disable it altogether. Hopefully this will help and I have guessed correctly on this one :).

Ive been reading and it says some places its a memory problem. Any truth to this or are you 80-100% sure its the firewall driver?

What should i look for in my event log. Should it crash my system however when playing games or running a bunch of programs. As stated im using winxp pro with sp2 integrated

Where would i look and what files should i unistall and put back on?

I see no application errors but a system error every time the computer had rebooted

Dolanen said about firewire driver, not firewall! (firewire = a connector much like an USB one for use with Firewire devices: racks, video cameras..etc, it also uses a driver that can be installed/rolled back/disabled if it has problems...)
To find some info about firewire please check type define:firewire on Google search.

System errors.

Control panel/administrative tools/computer management/device manager/* It's possible to find the driver (if you have the connectors :)) under Network adapters node under the name: IEEE 1394. You can there uninstall/rollback/disable the driver.

What does that error message say?


Good luck!
