Windows Error Message



Some specific and detailed advice requested. ...

Windows crashed. Hard drive stopped (hard drive light remained ON) and an error message appeared on monitor.

Messaged read: kernel_stack_inpage_error
Explanation read: Physical Dump Of Memory.

Generically, windows operating system (O/S) crashed. Better known as the BLUE screen of DEATH. Happened before but does not happen often.

Nor do I get highly over concerned about it when it does happen either. So it crashes. Big Deal. IMO Windows is like a TIMEX watch. Takes a LICKING and keeps on TICKING..... Always has and guess it always will.

Details:
Computer is an older year model 2003 H/P, Pentium 4 chip. memory is a single chip. All windows and all micro soft O/S running XP, explorer version 8 browser.

Nothing new component wise added, removed and or changed. No new software added via disk, downloaded or removed either.

Memory and cache cleared when computer is shut down each usage ending and turned back on each usage start up as normally done.

Anyone know exactly what that error message means?
(kernel_stack_inpage_error)

Any suggestions what corrections are possible, can or should be made? Advise.

Here is a link to Microsoft on the subject. Hope it helps.

Troubleshooting "Stop 0x00000077" or "KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR"

Hi and Thanks Woody.

Exactly and specifically info needed and what should be of help...

I'll give those directions a try once I am back on that computer contraption...

This computer I do not refer to as a contraption. This one is much newer...
This one Operates and Runs flawlessly each & every time. Thus far.

As mentioned before and I firmly believe so:
Windows is like a TIMEX watch. Takes a LICKING and keeps on TICKING..... Always has...
Thanks
Tom

I'd check the motherboard for blown capacitors. One gets all kind of weird problems when the caps are going, and that era is particularly prone to it.

T-W-X

Caps? You mean capacitors correct?... I suspect I already know the answer to that question. However, abbreviations may not always be clearly understood by everyone. IMO best to avoid any and all of such.

Question:
Then if evidence of a >blown< or already >blown< capacitor isn't easily visible, how can someone know or tell if a capacitor is GOING bad or already is BAD????

A GOING bad capacitor looks different then one that isn't????

A capacitor already BLOWN looks HOW?

Visual appearance the method to determine good, bad or going bad capacitor????

Details and specifics clearly explained in specifically would be appreciated... Benefits all readers of this thread and/or any others in the forum topic whom are not service or repair techs.

caps == capacitors

Much of the time, when small capacitors fail, they swell and bulge, sometimes they burst and leak.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague

Basically just about all capacitors in small electronics are cylinder-shaped. They tend to burst at either the top, which is intentionally weakened with an imprinted pattern so that they fail-safe, though sometimes they burst out the bottom, down on to the motherboard. Sometimes one can find caps that have started bulging but have not yet burst, they would probably not test out with a cap tester.

It's also possible for capacitors to fail without presenting any visual evidence of such a failure, but it's been my experience that most caps look fine and work well enough, or are swollen or blown and are obviously bad.

Hey thanks T-W-X

Much better understood with the well explained determination what a cap looks like (visual) appearance and to see if evidence of failure is present or potential failure may occur...

Often the power supply causes this problem. It's about the cheapest component to replace. Download and run Speedfan. Watch for voltage fluctuations. There is a 12volt, 5 volt and 3.3 volt feed from the power supply. If these are running low or moving a lot, replace the PSU.

Remember what happened before the Blue Screen of Death.
Did you just install a new program or a piece of hardware, update a driver, install an update, etc.?
You should Apply all available Windows service packs and other updates,update drivers to your hardware,or check the system activation logs in event viewer.A lot of things may cause this problem,I found a link how to fix BSOD's:

Causes of BSOD and how to fix it | Techyv.com

I hope it will help
Cheers!

As mentioned in initial post:

Nothing new component wise added, removed and or changed. No new software added via disk, downloaded or removed either.
Memory and cache cleared when computer is shut down each usage ending and turned back on each usage start up as normally done.
All the above apply. Read initial post. #1

Remember what happened before the Blue Screen of Death.
Answer: NO. When it happens I do not PANICK nor get SCARDED. Simply do a force shut down. Wait several minutes....:smoke:....return. Boot up. Wait till everything fully loads....:smoke: and continue.

Makes no difference what I am doing. Just happens... Most commonly online tending to this site or surfing other sites... Never when working with any software like word doc etc.

Just like S..T. Happens.... No Big deal. Just force shut down then turn back on.

Windows is like a TIMEX watch. Takes a LICKING and keeps on TICKING!

And has been since 2003! Amazing.
