    when does this occur? any particular window or application that this happens in? has it got into an operating system when this error happens, or is it still on the black (DOS) screen with white text before Windows starts?

Ah ok.

so i think what we need to do at this point is upgrade to SP 2 first.
can you try accessing the following site and install SP 2,
then get Service Pack 3 from the same link.

[Quoted from MS site link above]

In order to install the latest Windows XP Service Pack successfully, follow the steps to check the status of your PC.

  1. Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) can only be applied on 32-bit version Windows operation sytem. To check whether your system is 32-bit or 64-bit, click How to determine whether a computer is running a 32-bit version or 64-bit version of the Windows operating system
  2. Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Windows XP Service Pack 1a (SP1a) must be preinstalled before you install Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3). To check which service pack is currently installed on your computer, click "To check which service pack is currently installed". To install previous Windows XP service packs, use one of the following options:
    • Click here to download Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)
    • Click here to download Windows XP Service Pack 1a (SP1a)
  3. To install Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3)

    Internet Explorer is part of Windows. To fix it you can either reinstall it or , better, reinstall Windows. BTW IE gets corrupted when you have a virus, scan your pc thoroughly using another antivirus than you have now.

  • Azrael SRL Jul 15, 2010

    What the hell ? Are you still running SP1? How did you managed that, have you disabled all updates? No wonder you are infected and even basic stuff like IE is corrupted. Reinstall immediately and fully update, beyond SP3.

"Stack overflow at line 0"

b> A stack is a section of memory where a program stores its variables, calculations, option states and program parameters. When started, a program is allocated some memory to use for the stack; a stack overflow happens when a program exceeds its allocation. The offending program may attempt to write into adjacent memory sections, causing conflicts with other programs. Stack overflows are common with Java, C++, Perl and other runtime environments, which assist in running programs. A stack overflow at line 0 indicates that the offending program tripped up from the start; however, stack overflows can occur on any line number.

Click "Start," "Control Panel, then "Internet Options." Click on the "Advanced" tab. Check "Disable Script Debugging (IE)" and "Disable Script Debugging (Other)" under the "Browsing" options. Uncheck "Display a notification about every script error." Check "Enable Automatic Crash recovery." Click "OK." Download and install a Java update from the Java website. Download and install a Windows update. Hope this helps.

If the cylinder is showing an external leak, it was overloaded at the fork tips, and a seal or the stack ruptured. The valve and lines should also be flushed.

I have Wharfdale 4000 Xarus speakers connected to my Pioneer VSX 817, the last 6 months it keeps saying overload when i have the volume further than 40db. Never use to do it... and i have re wired the...

Testing your amp at max with the speakers disconnected will not play a factor because there is no power being drawn so the amp is not being used. Those speakers are rated 90db and really pound but also draw a ton of amps. The key thing here is to keep it cool, cool, cool. Put a fan on it and keep your receiver on a hard surface with nothing stacked on top or anywhere within a foot of it. Keeping it cool will help prevent overloads or (protection mode). Back it down every now and them and give the system a rest for a few minutes. Double check the negative and positive connection on the speakers to the receiver. We all have hooked them up backwards sometime and this will have the effect you are expressing. What is the phase set at on your receiver? Set it down to "0" and go up to where it sounds best without distortion. One more very important thing. What is the Ohm switch on your receiver set at? Put the switch on 8 Ohm even though your running 6 Ohm speakers. That switch only steps down your voltage feed to the power selections which will hamper the overall dynamics and fidelity of your receiver. This switch is really not even necessary. Putting that switch at 8 Ohms will give you more headway and aid in keeping your amp cool.

IE: stack overflow at line: 0 Today, I noticed the following issue (IE only, of course). Running a page that does some comet (via “XHR GET” for long-polling), I got the following warning: “stack overflow at line: 0′ and the application stopped working…
I did some google-searches and found some “hints” that said I should disable my third-party tools for IE etc. That sounds strange…
In fact the problem was the odd cache behavior of the IE. The XML (from the “long-polling servlet”) was cached and its JS was executed; also the application itself started the polling too, so I (no IE) ran into this odd issue…
Changing the server-side code – that is responsible to render the XML – to have no cache rules (e.g.”Cache-Control”:”no-cache”) did the trick. It worked again. Of course, on your “comet output” you potentially don’t want cache to be present…
So fixing the cache solved the issue. There was no need to disable Norton or any other third-party tool… icon_smile.gif

Stack overload at line 48

You hav run out of stack space. This means you have gone into too many levels of subroutines for example and have insufficient storage allocated for the return vectors and variables.

You will have to increase memory available for the stack, or have less levels of subroutines.

You may also hava a re-entrant subroutine that keeps calling itself until the return stack overflows.
