Bsod

Computer (Dell 4550) started this morning....opened Chrome....clicked on Yahoo....BSOD.


Restarted and it has been working fine all day. Any idea what these numbers mean:





The more I search the internet the more confused I get.

Thanks

Quick search of the stop code looks like it is likely memory related. Try re-seating the RAM chips or maybe replacing them. If this is Windows 7 it comes with a memory diagnostic tool that may help.

Sorry, it's XP Pro SP 3

Most of what I've read the last few hours mention memory.

Thanks

It may not be a hardware issue. A page fault could be a data overflow from an app into a protected area of memory that Windows needs. Windows detected this problem and stopped. The reboot returned the data to where it belongs and everything is fine.

If it happens regularly, then I would suspect a hardware problem with the RAM.

Been two days now with no more problems, you may be right. I'll keep my fingers crossed.


Thanks

Spikester I wasn't aware of a memory checker in Windows 7 could you tell me how to access that please. I think my memory is fine but it never hurts to check things out. Thank you!

Thanks Spikester I will keep that information and forward it off to a friend who fairly recently bought a laptop with Windows 7.

Definitely useful. Nice to have native diagnostic utilities.
