Ive been getting these at random times lately it doesnt happen often but it happens about once a day...

I have no idea what could be causing the problem it started happening a while after i last formatted xp.

After looking it up online it led me to believe i was having hardware issues most likely ram or a power supply...but how do i know?

I am running Windows Xp Professional on an a475c HP Desktop Computer

3.2 GHZ Pentium 4

256mb cl=3 pc3200 ddr/sd RAM (stock)
127mb cl=2.5 pc2800 ddr/sd RAM (not stock)

Sound Blaster Live! Sound Card (not stock)
Onboard Realtek sound (stock)

Radeon 9200 SE 128mb (Stock)

Whatever else you need to know I can tell you but please try to help me I appreciate any ideas thank You!

STOPs!
by Cursorcowboy / September 12, 2007 9:54 PM PDT

The article [Q32449] describes how to interpret or read Stop 0xC2 error messages in Microsoft Windows XP. The Stop 0xC2 error message indicates that a kernel-mode process or driver incorrectly tried to perform a memory operation. Typically, faulty device drivers or device software cause this error message and to determine the cause of the 0xC2 Stop error, examine the Stop error parameters. Parameter 1 indicates the type of error -- that is the culprit supposedly, and the other parameters provide address or header information.

Without first posting the entire STOP error I don't think anyone can really help.

Good luck.

Sorry to see that Cursorcowboy's link above was incorrect. You should have mentioned that, in stead of just repeating your question.

Quite a lot of info on your problem in
http://www.google.com/search?q=0xc2+xp+site%3Asupport.microsoft.com
One of them the article Cursorcowboy meant (but referred to incorrectly). I've got no reason to doubt his statement about it being related to a driver (or possibly a hardware) problem.

It's up to you do delve into the problem, given this information from Microsoft on how to do it.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
