I am having serious problem with my Laptop,following is the configuration:
CPU : 1.60Ghz,
RAM : 512MB
OS: WinXP with SP2
I bought this used laptop couple of days back and just yesterday,I started to have
problem with it, When I boot this laptop,few minutes after, I get a blue death screen,
giving the following error messege:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.The problem seems to be caused by the following file :Win32K.sys.
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.Use Windows update
to update the hardware or software installed.
*** STOP:0x00000050 (0xD88F6B20,0x00000001,0XBFBAEc57,0X0000000)
***Win32k.sys-Address BF8AEC57 base at BF800000,DataStamp 41107f7a
Its an eleborate messege but I just quoted what I think was important.
I have booted my computer in safe mode to check if it is a hardware issue or not,and
I have checked the hardware driver status in device manager of system properties but couldnot
find any driver problem their. Please note that after I bought this laptop, I updated
IE(Internet Explorer),installed adobe acrobate,flash player and winrar applications on it.
I reinstalled the RAM in my laptop but this problem persists,
After updating my IE,I didnot use windows update to update the Malacious software removal tool
and other features of IE 8, so am I geting this error because of this problem?
Or is this a paging file issue?
Please can anyone help me,this is urgent.
