    yo again, mates...!!!

    my old machine...running XP Pro...that I sold to my friend...got a 'blue screen of death stop error' message...but the stop #'s read differently from other errors of the same type I searched out on the web.

    his reads: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. STOP...0x488422ecd (bear in mind...it goes to a blank screen after the blue screen really quick...there's 4 or 5 stop # sequences in the chain, I think...but I only had time to scribble down one.

    when I searched this sequence at the knowledge base...microsoft hadn't even heard of it.

    (&...nothin' comes up for that stop # on google, either)

    they (microsoft) say that it reads (on an XP-based computer): DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000000, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)...

    & have a fix package #'d: 916595...which I downloaded...transfered to a thumb drive...& will attempt to install on his machine in safe mode tommorrow.

    but I'm pretty certain I got that stop number copied down correctly.

    this is weird...it bothers me that the stop chain reads differently on his box.

    any thoughts or ideas...???

    thanks,

    This error is usually a bad driver or bad RAM.

    I've had this error before and it usually means a piece of hardware has gone.

    Its unlikely to be the HDD (the machine partially booted after all). Try disconnecting the cd drive

    ok...

    thanks all...

    UPDATE:

    The utility BlueScreenView showed me the following:

    STOP: 0x100000d1 (0x48422ecd, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x86203c88)
    NDIS.sys -Address 0xf7698b6c base at 0xf7692000

    In the main view, where it highlights problem drivers, it highlighted the following:

    NDIS.sys
    ntoskrnl.exe

    any ideas...??? (& I'm also searching myself)

    thanks again,

    NDIS.SYS is a related to your NIC (network interface card). You can try updating the NIC drivers or replacing the NIC.

    joe...

    thanks.

    there is no card...it's integrated onto the mobo.

    so...I grabbed the broadcom diagnostic utility AND the latest driver from Dell.

    thanks again,
