minidump error

November 8, 2005 at 00:25:14
Specs: winxp pro, p4 3.0/ 1024 ddr

Everytime I log on I get an system message saying
"the system has recovered from a serious error"

the error signiature is
BCCode:1000008e BCP1:C0000005 BCP2:BF9C3BC2 BCP3:F7314B58
BCP4:00000000 OSVer:5_1_2600 SP:0_0 Product:256_1

the errror report contents are

C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini101105-03.dmp
C:DOCUME~1\Jason\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER2tmp.dir00\sysdata.xml

the numbers in "Mini101105-03.dmp" change everytime. and some of the numbers in he error signature change too.

While doing a search i have read that it might be an overheating problem so i opened my case and pointed an 8" fan directly at my motherboard so I can poretty much rule that out.. Also nothing is overclocked. This is a new system and its had this problem from day one. At first it said the bios needed updating so i did that. Seems when i fix one thing something else goes wrong.

does anyone have a clue what is going on? or how i can find out what is going on?

Thanks so much in advance for any help or ideas.

Jason, since it's a new system, WARRANTY comes to mind. Maybe you need to let them worry about fixing it?

A google search, points mainly to memory.

Check if you have bad RAM sticks. If you have two or more RAM sticks, take out one at a time. If only one stick, swap it with known good RAM.

Could have been a little foreign matter in the slot, preventing a good connection.
If you have any further problem, I use a vacuum with a tapered plastic end to clean out the slots.

I find these worth doing Jason. Clearing virtual memory, does slow shutdown.

Clear virtual memory on shutdown.
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/567.mspx
Windows does not normally clear or recreate the page file. On a heavily used system this can be both a security threat and performance drop. Enabling this setting will cause Windows to clear the page file whenever the system is shutdown.
Note: Please note on systems with large amounts of memory, and therefore large swap-file, this tweak could cause a delay at shutdown due to the additional time taken to clear the data from the file.
Go into Administration Tools [under "Performance and Maintenance" in Control Panel], then Local Security Policy, Security Settings,Local Policies, Security Options. Scroll down to "Shutdown:
Clear Virtual Memory Pagefile". Right click and select properties then click "Enabled".

=====================================

39. How to improve on shutdown time?

Close apps automatically & quickly at shutdown.
Open Registry by going to START-RUN and typing REGEDIT. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP and look for AutoEndTasks. Default value is 0. Change it to 1.
