Can anyone figure this out???
Brand new Seagate HDD, partitioned with Seagate installation utility. Installed with full 2000 ed. incl. serv. pk. 2.
After several days, pc started rebooting itself occasionally. Then, when I rebooted it, it would reboot itself 3,4 times before it would stay up.
2 days later, "Blue Screen"
"Stop: 0x000000D1 (0x00000015, 0x0000002,0x0000000, 0xEB6B2B46)
ADDRESS EB6B2B46 base AT EB6B0000 Date Stamp 3cc7ab4A
Beginning Dump of Physical Memory "
Then, it locks up. At least nothing happens after a couple of minutes.
After a couple of hours of fruitless effort with bios etc., I couldn't even boot it in safe mode.
I tried a fresh install; couldn't format the drive.
Re partitioned the HDD with same utility and started the install. Now, the install begins and stops on the setup screen.
I just built this pig!

Do not go about installing windows 98. http://www.tweakxp.com
follow some of there guidelines to making XP run fatser...i ahd the same problem but all ahs disapppeared...
Another way to stop this fromhappening is to add more ram...even 64 will stop this from happening..i added 128 just a few days ago..veryhting is faster and safer.
i have the same asus board and had the same problems.i had an irq conflict and i dont think my nic card was seeded right.i swapped my sound card and nic to different slots set the bios to non plug and play os and have been fine since.drove me crazy for about a week
i use an HP all in one printer; and i have not installed it yet..so I can't agree that HP drivers would be the problem....I have an Asus P4G8X Deluxe and ATI All In Wonder 8500DV video card and as much as I have searched and see postings; well, i must say that it has to be the drivers dealing with the video card.
i haven't found the answer for mine yet, but hopefully it will be soon, and when i do, i will post what resolved mine.
Hiya John C.
Just wanted to let you know (and anyone else interested) that I uninstalled the HP software and upon reinstallation it seemed to work fine. Some odd quirk/bug. Haven't seen a reoccuring problem with it yet.
Although I have my qualms about the HP D145. It says it supports windows 2000, but doesn't mention that this exludes the server version of 2000. Then it wouldn't install on my desktop w2k pro machine so finally I had to put it on the notebook. DUh?!
neway I guess it works but I would rather have it on a stationary system, oh and this was with the 2nd one I got to repace the first that didn't even work on any of my boxes. How lovely...
I have this problem. I have Win2000 professional. It just happened today.
It showed the following message on BLUE SCREEN:
STOP: 0x000000D1(0xE358B040,0x000000f1,ox0000001,oxB99AB0F0) Driver_IRAL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I am still having the same problem. There are so many suggestions out here on the net; claiming what might be the problem. I have tried so many different suggestions. And still have not solved mine.
Although, from what I have found out about my motherboard; the lan adapter on it just might be my problem. Still not sure yet.
Here's several examples of what people claim might be the problem:
*Drivers.....Ndis.sys - "NIC's driver" and Mrxsmb.sys - "Microsoft
Windows Redirector". Microsoft has had problems with these; making
a system crash. Check out Mircrosoft for Win 2000 sp3 hotfixes.
Some times; some people get lucky and that fixes their problem.
*Memory - Check and make sure your memory chip isn't bad.
*Make sure you have all your drivers for your system updated. Also
for your motherboard, video card and sound card.
My computer indeed states about these two drivers: Ndis.sys - "NIC's driver" and Mrxsmb.sys - "Microsoft Windows Redirector".
I did install things different on this system, which could be a problem. I will format, and install all microsoft updates first, then my motherboard dirvers, then finally my video card drivers. I installed different this time setting this one up. As for setting up other computers, I installed as I stated above, which I will do it like that from now on. I have found many people stating it can indeed be a problem, not installing MS Updates, then Mobo Updates, then the Video Card Updates in that order.
Just wanted to follow up to Sherry. Sherry if you notice my message about the HP D145 was about a blue screen attributed to: UHCD.sys
since your bsod (blue screen of death) is different it is probably not related... unless you have installed the HP software. I've found numerous complaints on the net about the HP all-in-one line of printers. Others have no problems. Indeed mine installs fine on a notebook... but not where I *need* it on my main workstation. If you have the hp software installed I would advise uninstalling it and seeing if you still get the bsod. Otherwise... your plan of formating/intalling sounds like a good one. I might also reccomend tracing what peripherials use the Ndis.sys - "NIC's driver" and Mrxsmb.sys and taking them out of your system and/or not installing them if that is the message your bsod is giving you. From your post you didn't mention what driver message, if any, the bsod was giving you. Good luck I know its frustrating been in windows/hp hell for the last few days.
To Sophia you didn't mention if your system is patched with the latest service pack and critical updates. Do that first and if you have already then search for problems about what driver message you are getting on your bsod. I recently found that critical update Q329170 causes an error in event viewer so I uninstalled it see this page for more or search google: http://forums.zonelabs.com/zonelabs/board/message?board.id=win...age.id=419
The rest of the error message posted above:
Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL: Address BFEC54A8 @ BFEC5000, Datestamp3cdaec06-ndis.sys
I do have an HP - All-In-One Printer. I have never had problems with mine at all. I have not set it up on this computer; due to my "insanely" probable cause; from this pathectic problem of crashing.
Since I have not installed my HP Printer drivers and software on here; it indeed is not my problem.
"Ndis.sys driver is NDIS 3.0 wrapper driver" that goes to my Broadcom 5702 Lan Card and it's conflicting with the "Mrxsmb.sys driver that is Windows NT SMB Minirdriver. I'm not sure what the mrxsmb.sys driver is for and if I could get rid of it. If it is possible to rid of, I am all for it. I have updated out of this world on this problem, so therefore, it's not anything that would need to be updated.
I found out that, Asustek is having problems with the P4G8X Deluxe motherboard "Lan Adapters". Another words..."faulty adapters"....creating chaos for us. I do like my mobo, although right now...well....i'll just leave it at that; until I get this solved; or I'll just do as some others and send in a request for RMA. Then Newegg.com will ship me another one. "Dread it so much though"!!!!....
I did uninstall the critical update Q329170 that you had suggested; although no luck for me. I am still having the problems and I am cannot even stay connected to the net with my computer long at all. It just disconnects on it's own.
I just did a google search and came up with these pages.
At the top the guy tried removing and reinstalling his lan drivers, want to try that? Or have you already? Do you have an onboard lan or a pci card? Perhaps trying switching the lan card if you have a different model or even just switching pci ports. I just had the weirdest problem with a sound blaster live card that stopped working. I thought for sure it was dead, tech said try another computer before so I did and it worked?!! So I installed it back in the target system on a different slot and it works, go figure. Anyway here are the links.
Other than that testing components/drivers that may be the problem I would myself not know what to do. I suppose I should learn more about the internal workings of windows, buy why would I corrupt my mind like that?
Good Luck, keep posting maybe someone smart will come along and help!
Unless someone who knows about debugging windows comes around it looks like you have to use the process of elimination to narrow down the problem. Also if you format and it is, say the lan card, then you will still get the problem.
Sherry can you give me your system specs.? This will help a great deal .Then if you don`t mind give me a link where I can find the manual for your mobo? I can read about your system and see what you have in bios,then maybe help you out .It looks like you are running some aggressive settings in bios as of now.If you will do this I will try to help you out.It will be something simple !! When I was setting mine up it done that a few times,and it was in my bios memory timings ,they were too aggressive.
