    I built my PC myself, and since starting to use Windows XP Home I keep getting 0x0000000A and 0x00000050 stop errors, sometimes when doing something, sometimes when doing nothing. I never get 'em when using Windows 98, which I've had to use to write this post, since for some reason the stop errors have this time been occurring within minutes of loading XP. So it doesn't seem like it could be bad memory cards. Here are three stop errors I've written down:

    STOP 0x0000000A (0xC0C0FF80, 0x00000001, 0x00000000, 0x804EDB3D)
    STOP 0x00000050 (0xE287A000, 0x00000000, 0x80505D1F, 0x00000001)
    STOP 0x00000050 (0xE27B4000, 0x00000000, 0x80505D1F, 0x00000001)

    Also, quite a few times when I've loaded XP the resolution has been set to Low. It seems the video driver gets messed up, 'cause after uninstalling it and restarting, the resolution is back to its usual setting.

    Well, a little while ago after getting the 0x50 error listed second above, something happened that hasn't happened before. When I loaded up XP, the resolution was set to Low. (Usually the stop errors and the resolution problem occur separately.) Then after restarting, I got an AVG error: Driver (CORE) not found winerr=2.

    It could be that the video and AVG drivers are incompatible. Or not. Either way, anyone able to decipher the above stop errors and help me fix this problem? In the mean time, I would disable memory cache and shadowing in BIOS, but I can't. My recent version Phoenix BIOS doesn't have those settings.

    All my hardware are XP compatible:
    Motherboard: Asus A7A266
    CPU: AMD ATHLON K7 1.2GHZ
    Memory: 2 NANYA 256MB PC2100 DDR 266MHZ (512MB Total)
    Video Card: Elsa GLADIAC 511
    Sound Card: Philips AcousticEdge PSC706
    Hard Drive 1: Fujitsu 20GB MPF3204AT
    Hard Drive 2: Seagate 40GB ST340016A
    CD-ROM: Pioneer 32x DR-A32X
    Burner: LITE-ON 52x LTR-52327S

    Thanks. I've already read them, but they weren't much help. A couple months ago I had to reinstall my printer driver, but for some reason couldn't find the digitally signed driver on the XP CD, so I installed an unsigned one. Well I found a signed one yesterday and installed it and so far I'm not getting anymore stop errors, but that doesn't mean much, 'cause they sometimes occur after running fine for quite a while. So we'll see. If that didn't fix it, I'll be back for more help.
