Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
I'm not sure what model my Dell is (its a desktop), all i know is that it is about 7 years old. But I had to put something legit in the Product description!
Here is what my (blue) screen says on my computer:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
The problem seems to be caused by the following file: smccs.sys. An attempt was made to write to read-only memory.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.
If problems continue disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.
***Stop: 0x000000BE (0x804e295c, ox004e2161, 0xF93F0BA4, 0x0000000B)
*** smccs.sys - Address F9973342 base at F9973000, Datestamp 4771299a
