Hello members
I have a strange BSOD, STOP: OxOOOOOOOA (0x00000016,OxOOOOOOlC,0x00000000,0x8G4FA276)that comes up again and again, irregular and lately a bit more often. I have been told that it is more of a hardware problem and not a VM issue.
Please, would someone be able to give me an idea where I could find the cause of this?

edit: the post titel was mis spelled

Hi JohnW
Thanks for your link.
I had a brief read through the MS article" Stop 0x0000000A" error message in Windows XP".
The possibilities of any fault are so vast that it might be the best to try another fresh install.
I guess I could check, Ram and the HDD and what else could I check?
Is there any third party software the may would help me?

Hi JohnW
Just as an update.
It is the WHS I had build for testing that created the BSOD as I found out.
No problems at all without the WHS.

You can get the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error from many causes, but sometimes it can be just because the ram module contacts are not getting a good connection - the following worked for me when I got that error:

A common thing that can happen with ram, even ram that worked fine previously, is the ram has, or has developed, a poor connection in it's slot(s).
This usually happens a long time after the ram was installed, but it can happen with new ram, or after moving the computer case from one place to another, and I've had even new modules that needed to have their contacts cleaned.

See response 2 in this - try cleaning the contacts on the ram modules, and making sure the modules are properly seated:

For a laptop, you must remove both its main battery and AC adapter before you do that.

Thanks for that suggestion.
More exactly the BSOD happen when the WHS was connected with/through the console and tray icon. It did not happen at all otherwise.
It is also a VM (guest OS) working environment.
So for now WHS has been removed from the system and instead a NAS will be setup.
Thankls a lot!
