Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

My PC has XP Home and I am getting repeated Blue Screen Of Death when working in Adobe CS3 Browser with lots of files. There are a variety of STOP codes beginning with: 0x0000000A or 0x0000004E or 0x0000000A or 0x00000043, etc and usually either the PFN_LIST_CORRUPT or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL message. The problems appear to coincide with the installation of XP Service Pack 3. The problem is common to my networked Freecom Classic external hard drive and Freecom Classic USB Drive. My PC has a new Dual Core ASUS M2N-MX SE Plus motherboard. All drivers and firmware for the motherboard, BIOS, Netgear Router and Hard Drives are up to date. XP is fully up to date and CS3 is fully up to date. Do you have any suggestions about how to cure my problems please or is it an ASdobe problem ? Regards

    Thanks Latoof ~ My PC has PANDA Antivirus ( I wouldn't let Norton loose on any computer ! )

  • Dingle2Shoes Jul 01, 2008

    Thanks Ipstar.



    I was coming to the same conclusion about SP3 but decided to do some further watching and waiting with careful observations of what might be giving problems. I have switched to using the Adobe Photoshop CS2 Browser / Bridge to do what was giving a problem in CS3. So far, with the CS2 Browser / Bridge, I have not had any Blue Screen Of Death episodes in 24 hours despite giving it some real hammering.



    I am beginning to think that the problem might be in the Adobe CS3 Browser / Bridge rather than the XP Service Pack 3. Thanks for your efforts. Please keep thinking.

TO BE HONEST, I WOULD TRY TO ROLL BACK YOUR SYSTEM TO BEFORE YOU INSTALLED SP3, IF ALL WAS WORKING THEN, WHY BOTHER WITH SP3. I PERSONALLY DO NOT ACCEPT ANY UPDATES FROM MICROSOFT AS THEY ALWAYS CORRUPT SOMETHING AND MANY PROGRAMS DO NOT WORK. I'VE GOT SP2 AND I'VE NO INTENTIONS OF INSTALLING SP3 (IF IT AINT BROKE, DONT FIX IT)

I have Photoshop CS3 on two PCs, abandoning one and wish to install PS CS3 on a Mac, replacing 2d pc. Can I do this and keep PS3 also on the PC? Same question for Lightroom and the Bridge. Can I share...


No you cannot, because it is not supported when you uninstall it. If you visit Adobe.com. What you might want to do is just download another version on it. Copy it onto a flash drive or CD. And then just place into the other PC.

Also you can share digital files between the PC and your Mac, but not programs, because programs are Server-Side installed. So the only way to share a program is to copy the files(Install Files) from one PC to the Mac, and it should work.

Blue Screen of Death


The stop error screen or bug check screen commonly called the blue screen of death (also known as a BSoD, bluescreen, or "blue screen of doom.

slasher_x_22.jpg
In reality, the most common cause of blue screen errors is a device driver problem. Outdated, incorrect or corrupt drivers can cause the system to encounter a STOP error, resulting in the BSOD.
Often, if you're lucky, the problem will resolve itself with a simple reboot and you may never have to worry about it again. More typically though, the BSOD is a harbinger of trouble and you may find yourself faced with another and another until you throw up your hands in frustration... but all is not lost.

So the easiest way to try and fix a blue screen error is to reinstall and update your system's device drivers. This is if you are able to boot into safe mode (Press and hold the F8 key during boot up). This will ensure that all driver bugs are fixed and that all hardware has the correct driver. If you know which device caused the error, you can update or reinstall that driver first. The file name in the blue screen of death can help identify the driver. Look for a file with the .SYS extension and search for that file name. There is a neat program on the net that can fix this problem, it's called DriverFinder, you can get it here.

If this doesn't work or you can't think or find the corrupt driver you could use System Restore (If it is enabled) to go back to a time where you didn't get the error. To use the system restore utility, go to 'start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore.

slasher_x_24.jpg
Sometimes though the blue Screen of death can be caused by faulty or loose rame cards. Check that your RAM modules are inserted correctly and arn't clogged with dust.

slasher_x_23.jpg

After using the computer for a few months or years, the hard disk gets fragmented with temporary files, or fragmented files. This will result in slowness of the hard disk and may even result in a computer crash eventually. You can maintain your harddisk by defragmenting your hard disk and deleting unwanted files frequently.

If you see Fatal OE exceptions and VXD errors then it is due to the video card. To solve this reduce the video display resolution. You can do so by going to the control panel and display settings. Choose the correct screen resolution to match your monitor.

Blue screen sometimes after a few hours and sometimes direct


First, try to get a look at the stop code as in the example shown HERE

If you identify the stop code, you can look it up, and it can sometimes tell you what the problem is. Hopefully it's not a hardware problem. This article has a list of Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) stop codes : http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/43519-windows-xp-blue-screen-of-death-stop-codes/

A typical cause of BSOD that I have seen in the past, is video drivers. It never hurts to uninstall and reinstall the video drivers if you can get into the machine.

I have some instructions on doing this in a previous response:

BLUE SCREEN ERROR STOP 0x0000007E(0xC0000005,0x80688B8E,0xBACC357C,0xBACC3278)


This error may happen due to following reasons,
1) OS file corrupted
2) RAM
First you need to re install the operating system and mostly this will resolve the problem. For this all you need is an OS installation CD.

If the problem persist again then you need to change the RAM to check this error.

Note: Please don't use two RAM on this situation. Different RAM frequency may cause this error, remove one RAM if you had two.

Blue Screen windows 7 PC closes with a Blue Screen and Restarts


There are a lot of possible causes for blue screen errors, but most of them relate to the computer hardware. The cause of a BSOD error can be a temperature problem, a timing error, a resource conflict, hardware failure, a corrupt registry, a virus or simply a device incompatibility or driver error.
How to analyze blue screen errors The first thing to do to analyze a blue screen error is to check the meaning of the STOP error code. You need to stop Windows from rebooting when a STOP error is encountered. Once the blue screen of death is shown, you can check the meaning of the STOP error code. Together with the filename of the driver or module, this will give an indication of the error cause.
Another option to analyze the cause of the blue screen error is to look at the Windows system event log or to debug the memory dump (minidump) that Windows created when the error occurred. The event log can be viewed using the event viewer. Right-click Computer in the Start menu, and then select Manage. In the Computer Management window select Event Viewer. The information in the event log can be of great help to isolate the cause of the blue screen error.
Reading the minidump requires a bit more technical knowledge, but Microsoft has tools to read the minidump.
The most common cause of blue screen errors In reality, the most common cause of blue screen errors is a device driver problem. Outdated, incorrect or corrupt drivers can cause the system to encounter a STOP error, resulting in the BSOD.
So the easiest way to try and fix a blue screen error is to reinstall and update your system's device drivers. This will ensure that all driver bugs are fixed and that all hardware has the correct driver.
If you know which device caused the error, you can update or reinstall that driver first. The file name in the blue screen of death can help identify the driver. Look for a file with the .SYS extension and search for that file name.
If you do not have the drivers for all devices, or are not comfortable updating your PC's drivers manually, you can use a driver update tool to find, download and update all device drivers for you. Such tools will accurately identify your computer hardware, including any device causing an error, and automatically install the latest drivers for it.
In most cases updating or reinstalling drivers will solve your blue screen errors.
Other causes of blue screen errors However, if updating device drivers does not fix the blue screen error, there are a number of additional things to try:
  • Load the default BIOS values - resource conflicts and timing issues can be caused by incorrect BIOS settings.
  • Update the BIOS - especially after adding new hardware or installing a Windows service pack this can help fix issues.
  • Update Windows - missing updates, including service packs can be a source of stop errors.
  • Check your system - run a virus scan and spyware scan after updating your definition files.
  • Driver rollback - if you have recently updated a driver, you can use the driver rollback to revert back to the previous driver version.
List of STOP Errors Causing BSOD:
  • Stop 0×00000003 UNSYNCHRONIZED_ACCESS
  • Stop 0x0000000A IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
  • Stop 0x0000001E KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
  • Stop 0×00000023 FAT_FILE_SYSTEM
  • Stop 0×00000024 NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM
  • Stop 0x0000002E DATA_BUS_ERROR
  • Stop 0x0000003F NO_MORE_SYSTEM_PTES
  • Stop 0×00000044 MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS


Here are 2 solutions:
Solution #1 Scan your registry for errors.
A Registry Cleaner scans your computer for errors in your PC's registry. Your computer's registry contains information about your Windows XP operating system, including driver, printer, software information. Over time, your computer's registry may start to contain obsolete data. A corrupt registry will easily slow down the speed of your computer because applications and drivers are loaded even though they're not in use. Fixing your registry of errors will not only prevent the Windows XP Blue Screen Of Death, it'll allow your computer to boot faster, open up multiple folders quicker. A listing of registry cleaners can be found here.
Solution #2 Process of Elimination
When the CPU calls certain functions from the RAM, or Random Access Memory, and the data rests in a faulty section of the RAM, this will cause the blue screen to appear. I recall a time whenever my computer booted up and started loading the Norton Anti Virus program, the blue screen error message would appear. This happens because the CPU is accessing data from faulty locations within the RAM when loading the anti virus software.
This method involves having 2 sticks of RAM. Remove 1 stick of RAM and wait to see if the blue screen surfaces, do the same for the other.
Through process of elimination, you'll find the cause of the Windows XP blue screen of death error.
Because getting into the hardware can be a little techy for computer hardware "adverse" readers, a simple 2 step plan is to first clear your PC of any registry errors. Then if the blue screen of death goes away, we would have saved ourselves the trouble of having to open up the PC casing and touching the hardware components

My Dell Inspiron E1405 is getting the blue screen of death before starting up windows xp. It has the stop codes 0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xF8C7E4D4, 0x0F8C7E1D0, 0x83622816) it tells me to uninstall any...


STOP 0x00000024, 0X0000024, 0X24 or NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM = this stop error means that your NTFS file system is corrupt and this is practically impossible to fix - absolutely everything on your hard disk is trashed. The only reliable way to fix that is to reinstall Windows.

Blue screen of death. unable to download drivers. can not get to safe mode. cannot reload orperating system disks.


First off, note down all relevant information when you see a BSOD flash across the screen. This includes the error number and friendly name from the 'bugcheck' section of the stop error (see above), and any file names specified in the 'driver information' section.
If the BSOD comes up on the screen for a split-second before the PC restarts and wipes all the useful information away, we need to change some settings within WinXP. In most cases, it should be possible to stop your PC from automatically restarting when it develops a major error, allowing you enough time to jot down the BSOD error message. If you are using WindowsXP, right click on my computer > Properties > Select the 'Advanced' tab > and under 'startup and recovery' click the 'settings' button. This will open a new window, and under the 'System Failure' heading, uncheck 'Automatically restart.' Continuing on, attempt to restart the computer normally into Windows. If the BSOD occurred while booting Windows, you may be taken to a troubleshooting menu and will have to select 'attempt to start Windows normally.' If your computer starts correctly, continue using it and store the error information for later reference. If the BSOD reoccurs at random or irregular periods, see Section D below on troubleshooting intermittent stop errors.
If your system does not start correctly or the stop message happens again, reboot the system. When the POST (memory checking) screen comes up, press F8 repeatedly. This will bring you to the Windows advanced options menu.
In the Windows advanced options menu choose 'safe mode' to attempt to boot into Windows Safe mode. Safe mode loads Windows XP with a minimal set of drivers and no automatically loaded software. If faulty software or drivers are causing your BSOD problem, safe mode should load correctly. If safe mode loads correctly, refer to Section A below on 'troubleshooting software stop messages.'
If safe mode does not load correctly, and/or you get the same stop message upon attempting safe mode, it's time to try the 'restore last known good configuration' option in the advanced options menu.
Restart your computer, pressing 'F8' again to load the advanced options menu and select 'last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked).' This uses Windows XP's built in system restore utility to restore the most recent save point, which should be the last time you installed any drivers or other software. If your system boots normally after this operation, hopefully your problem has been fixed.
If you are still receiving a Blue Screen Of Death after the above procedures, or if system restore was disabled on your system, note down any new information on the error and start thinking. Did you install any new hardware or software just before this problem occurred? The driver information section of the BSOD may help with this.
If you did install new hardware or software, and you think you know what it might be that is causing the problem, this gives you a big boost in resolving the situation.
Otherwise, proceed to the advanced troubleshooting sections below. Chances are your error is hardware or system file based and will require more effort to repair.
Specific Repair Instructions
If you have a reoccurring Blue Screen Of Death or crashing problem, and can't use Windows effectively because of it, it's time to look at more specific methods of troubleshooting your problem. Depending on the results of the basic troubleshooting steps above, you should have a good idea of whether the problem that is causing the stop messages is related to software or drivers you have installed, or is a hardware or system file issue.
Essentially, if you can't boot into Windows XP safe mode because of crashes or Blue Screens Of Death, you likely either have a hardware error or one or more essential system files is corrupted or missing. If you can boot into Windows XP safe mode, but get constant or frequent BSOD's when running XP normally, you have a software or device driver problem.

Make sure that if you added any RAM to your computer which is a common cause for BSOD that you added the correct RAM for your computer and that it is equally distributed in the ports meaning each port for the RAM has the equal amount of RAM on each side (eg, one stick 1GB, and the other has 1GB, etc).
