    Need a little help

    Hello, Windows XP user with a problem. I have received the blue screen a few times and was hoping for some help or information. The first few times I have not recorded the info. but the last two times I have and here it is: *** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xE11C45F4, 0x00000001, 0x80537347, 0x00000001) and the other: *** STOP: 0x0000001A (0x00041284,0xC131A000, 0x00004913, 0xC0C00000) and that one said at the top of the blue screen: MEMORY-MANAGEMENT If anyone could give me some help that would be great, I'm not the best with computers but also not completely in the dark. John

    Re: Need a little help

    Whew, I'm stumped. Tell me about the computer - is it new, an OEM brand that is still under warranty? If so you should be contacting someone right away. Otherwise, the first thing that comes to mind is a possibly bad RAM stick. Are you OK with taking off the covers and doing a little trial-and-error with the memory? If the machine has two or more RAM sticks, you could take out all but one to see what happens. Then, swap the sticks out to see if the errors persist. There's always the possibility of a corrupt XP installation but I wouldn't want to resort to an OS re-install until checking hardware was done first.

    Re: Need a little help

    You seem to have got several of the most frequent STOP errors found in NT, and this seems a bit surprising for XP. Have a look at what might laughably be described as their "meaning" by looking them up here.

    As Big Al says, the easiest thing to check is the memory sticks, that they haven't somehow worked themselves loose. When you've powered off the system unit AND removed the power cord, open up the case and check that the memory is not loose. While you're at it, check that all other plugs are tight in their sockets, particularly for the disk drive.

    Some information about the computer manufacturer might help, as well as whether you have Done Anything recently to it, particularly added or changed hardware. Is the disk drive making unusual noises, perhaps?

    Re: Need a little help

    Thank you much for your reply Bigal and John. The computer is an emachines that I bought used. When I received it, it was restored to the condition like it was just purchased new ( nothing on harddrive but preinstalled winXP off the emachines setup disc). The guy did tell me it had a problem but if I knew a little bit about computers it could be easily fixed. I at first thing did but a stick of 64Mb RAM in it and started it up. It ran for a long time ( 2hrs) then did the blue screen. It has been doing it alot but I took your advise and played around with the RAM sticks. First I took out the 64Mb that I installed and I was bombarded with blue screens upon start up, next I took out the 128Mb that the computer came with and installed two 64Mb sticks. So far so good have not had a blue screen since installing the two sticks. I hope that solves the problem and I plan on purchasing 512Mb or maybe even 1Gig of RAM very soon. Thanks for your help and you will be hearing from me again if the problem is not solved. John

    And, in addition to Doc's comments, if you go to Crucial.Com(Memory upgrades at Crucial.com) and put in your EMachines info, their site should help you identify what RAM you need.

    Make sure that you get the correct type of RAM for your system. Incorrect or mismatched RAM (two sticks of different types of RAM) can cause the type of problems you were describing. You might do well to read up on RAM before investing in some. There are helpful tutorials here and here.
