XP startup failure recovery
I've been working on an XPpro system and everything looks OK in terms of viruses, Adware, etc. however *every* time it starts it reports the error "The system has recovered from a serious error" and offers to send the report to Microsoft.
Examining the report shows the following (to me, less than helpful) information:
BCCode : 100000ea BCP1 : 80DF3020 BCP2 : 80D8F008 BCP3 : 80E519D0
BCP4 : 00000001 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 0_0 Product : 256_1
It does create a dump file and an XML listing of drivers but neither is likely to be helpful.
Looking at the event log there is a system error which says...
Error code 100000ea, parameter1 80df3020, parameter2 80d8f008, parameter3 80e519d0, parameter4 00000001.
For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.
and getting info from the help centre reveals...
Details Product: Windows Operating System ID: 1003 Source: System Error Version: 5.2 Symbolic Name: ER_KRNLCRASH_LOG Message: Error code %1, parameter1 %2, parameter2 %3, parameter3 %4, parameter4 %5. Explanation
A blue screen (Stop error) was reported. The message contains details about the error. A matching event with Event ID 1001 might also appear in the event log. This matching event displays information about the specific error that occurred.
No user action is required.
Anyone got any ideas? It seems that some sort of error occurred but it sorted it out, though it doesn't seem prepared to tell me (in simple terms) what the error was. I'd rather fix the cause that have it tell me not to worry myself about it!!
