    My son's IBM Thinkpad has XP pro. Each time it boots up, XP puts a message that says "The system has recovered from a serious error." I can't figure out what the error is (I certainly haven't noticed a problem). It also asks if I want to report the message to Microsoft. The error signature is:
    BCCode: 50 BCP1: FF799010 BCP2: 00000000 BCp3:F980095C BCP4:00000000 OSVer:5_1_2600 SP:0_0 Product:256_1

    It also tells me there will be two files included in the report: a file with an extension .dmp which I cannot open and an XML file which I cannot find.
    It also asks if I want to report the message.
    The bottom line is that this is more annoying than anything else. How can I fix or get rid of this? Thanks,
    Craig

    And have you allowed XP to report the problem? Once you do so you'll be able to go to this site: http://oca.microsoft.com/welcome.asp
    and possible find the solution to the problem.

    Mark,
    No, I haven't. I didn't know about it. I followed your link and have submitted the report. Thanks very much. That was relatively painless. (I don't know what will happen with "passport").

    I'll post their solution.

    Thanks,

    Craig

    Just check back with them in a few days, I've had some take over a week before a response was posted. And sometimes they have even offered a solution.
