    I just recently added a 512 SDRAM chip (PC 133) to my custom built computer(900 MHZ AMD Athlon Thunderbird System, PC Chips M810 ATX Motherboard), and now I'm experiencing erratic behavior from my computer. My computer sometimes restarts automatically after I've logged on. Then, sometimes, after I shutdown and boot my computer, I'm asked whether if I would like to start my computer in safe mode or use previous configurations. After selecting to use previous configurations, my computer is now getting stop error messages. The following is one of the latest stop error messages that I've received:

    A problem has been detected and Windows has been shutdown to prevent further damage to your computer.

    If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

    Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.

    Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup options, and then select Safe Mode.

    Technical Information:

    *** STOP: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0XF89ADB3C, 0XF8CD962C, 0XF8CD932C)

    I have well enough disk space (19GB) and my BIOS & drivers are updated. I've checked my memory options in my BIOS. I disabled my L1 & L2 cache and System BIOS Cacheable. If helpful, I have an AMIBIOS version

    As I close, I would appreciate it, if you could help me resolve my problem.

    Here's a couple M$ articles that may help!




    The odds are that you're running a Logitec USB keyboard and/or mouse.

    Boot into safe mode and try removing the Logitec mouse, then reboot and see what happens. If you still get the error, then try dumping the keyboard drivers.

    Logitec drivers are infamous for causing problems with WinXP!

    Good Luck!
