Hi. I've been recently having problems with watching .avi's using windows media player v7.01. The problem usually occurs with full length movies. After playing for say.. 30min + it would crash, or if I slide the slider bar around to skip some scenes a lot, it would crash. Now when it does crash.. it just freezes if I'm not playing it in full screen mode. When in full screen mode, it gives me a blue screen with this text at the top..

---------

*** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0xFFBFF000, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x001315E9)

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Beginning dump of physical memory

---------

Anyone have any idea what's causing this... or what I can do to fix it ? Thanks mucho.

Hey thanks. It sure sounds like a solution to me... except I don't where the old file is located, to replace it with this new one. I tried a search on my system.. but the only one I found was the gpibpci.sys that I downloaded. Should I just stick it in a system folder somewhere?

Hi again, hope everyone had a nifty holiday.

That post seems to point at using verifier.exe to fix the problem.. but I have no idea what any of the controls in the program is. It says to disable a lot of things, my computer already has everything disabled... at least in the Settings tab > Verification status. It's still crashing lots...

Could it be a bad memory stick? Or are all these addresses and memory that they're talking about, hard drive memory?

Anywho, thanks so far for looking up those pages, appreciate it.

I had a very merry Christmas, thank you.

I re-read the MS article and I found another article that should help you on the Driver Verifier, here's the Link: http://www.winntmag.com/Articles/Index.cfm?ArticleID=7206&Key=Internals

It appears to the problem is related to memory paging and IRQLs.

The link give all the details. It states, you use the Verifier GUI (\%systemroot%\system32\verifier.exe) to configure the Verifier and view statistics about operations that the Verifier code executing in the kernel makes.

But I think your problem may caused by your paging file, which is corrupted and/or fragmented badly. The problem may be fix by formatting the drive partition and re-installing Windows 2000 and all your applications. Anothe option is run Disk Cleanup, disabling page caching (which will release the space), and run Scandisk, and Defrag from MS-DOS mode (which will clean things up). Then enable paging.

Good luck and Happy New Year.
