Re: bsod when i tried to install win2k

This Stop message occurs when requested data is not found in memory. The system generates a fault, which normally indicates that the system looks for data in the paging file. In this circumstance, however, the missing data is identified as being located within an area of memory that cannot be paged out to disk. The system faults, but cannot find, the data and is unable to recover. Faulty hardware, a buggy system service, antivirus software, and a corrupted NTFS volume can all generate this type of error.
User Action:
This Stop message usually occurs after the installation of faulty hardware or in the event of failure of installed hardware (usually related to defective RAM, either main memory, L2 RAM cache, or video RAM). If hardware has been added to the system recently, remove it to see if the error recurs. If existing hardware has failed, remove or replace the faulty component. Run hardware diagnostics supplied by the system manufacturer. For details on these procedures, see the owners manual for your computer. Another cause of this Stop message is the installation of a buggy system service. Disable the service and determine if this resolves the error. If so, contact the manufacturer of the system service about a possible update. If the error occurs during system startup, restart your computer, and press F8 at the character-mode menu that displays the operating system choices. At the resulting Windows 2000 Advanced Options menu, choose the Last Known Good Configuration option. This option is most effective when only one driver or service is added at a time. Antivirus software can also trigger this Stop message. Disable the program and determine if this resolves the error. If it does, contact the manufacturer of the program about a possible update. A corrupted NTFS volume can also generate this Stop message. Run Chkdsk /f /r to detect and repair disk errors. Restart the system before the disk scan begins on a system partition. If the hard disk is SCSI, check for problems between the SCSI controller and the disk. Finally, check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help pinpoint the device or driver causing the error. Disabling memory caching of the BIOS might also resolve it. For more troubleshooting information about this Stop message, refer to the Microsoft Knowledge Base at

Ntvdm cpu encountered illegal operation Hi all! I just installed Maya 2010 from a torrent file and since then I got this famous error message. It's just appeears as three command prompts appearing at the...

If I am reading this right your issue is not the application but where you obtained the application. Maya 2010 is a modern design application and comes in 32 & 64 bit versions. It is not a 16 bit application.

When Windows encounters a legacy application it calls the NTVDM for the legacy application to run in.

The fact that the application is calling the NTVDM is highly suspicious. NTVDM is the NT Virtual Dos Machine, a way for legacy applications to run in NT environments.

NT environments are Windows NT 3.5, NT 4.0, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP (Home, Pro & Media Center Ed), Vista (all versions) and Windows 7.

Old (legacy) applications written for 16 bit date back to Windows 3.1 and include Windows 95, 98 and Millennium Edition.

I would obtain a copy of Maya 2010 from a reputable outlet instead of Bit Torrent as "warez" frequently contain malicious items that will infect and ruin your machine.

Upgrade to SP4 for Win2k take too long.

Your system specifications are very low for service pack 4.
How ever, a solution would be to reinstall your Operating System (OS), then install Service pack 4 before installing any other programs.

Remember to back up all your data before you reinstall your OS

Try rebooting the computer. If that doesn't help, Reinstall Macromedia Projector and then reboot the computer. It should almost definitely work after that.
