Multiple Blue Screens

I have an HP Pavillion 534w, Win XP SP2. I have worked alot on this system to remove a ton of viruses and trojan horses (thanks to my daughter). Now, after the clean up, I often receive the following Stop Messages:

0xD1, 0x7F, 0x24, 0x50, 0x8E, 0x0A or the following errors:

Driver_ not less than equal, IRQL_ not less than equal, win32k.sys, ndis.sys, ltmdmnt.sys.

How can I get my system back to normal, do I need to reinstall XP? I called my local Tech support center and they want to charge $229.00 for OS Service. Is this my only alternative. Please advise....

Unfortunately, those shown errors are too many and are related with different error codes and files. In the real world, the cure involves:

1. Saving the data.

2. Performing a windows XP clean installation, installing the SP2, etc, restoring the data.

3 However, if the clean installation process fails or it gives some blue errors, could be more than this. For example, some hardware components damages such as: faulty memory, dying motherboard, etc.

Now, how can you accomplish the new functional PC depends of your skills. If you can't do it, you should find someone knowledgeable. How much does it cost ? Something around 3 - 5 hours for #1 + #2 (you should ask their fee per hour).


Good Luck,

New clues are provided in another forum. My bet is heat.

Yup, could be the heat. From my experience, such a variety of stop errors in various sys files is memory related. I can tell a case when memtest86 passed a complete iteration (as I recall one iteration was about 15 minutes) and failed during second iteration. The cause ? A lazy CPU fan.
