    I just finished upgrading my system and reinstalling the XP Pro and have started to get the dreaded BSOD at random times. Doesn't happen too frequently, maybe once every 2 hours at completely random times (no similar actions or programs running).

    Here's the error message I caught:

    STOP: 0x000000FA (0x00000001, 0x84AC4EA9, 0xA70350F0, 0x00000160)

    HTTP.SYS - ADDRESS A70350F0 BASE AT A702C000, DATESTAMP 41672744

    I tried googling it but didnt really come up with much useful. I found some blurb that indicated that 0x000000FA usually indicated a hardware problem most likely caused by drivers, but not absolutely so.

    Anyone have any idea what the cause of my problem could be?

    I've run MemTest for 3 passes and no errors come up and my CPU temps are at 25C. I'm at a loss for ideas and am ready to try reinstalling again.

    Here's my system:

    Athlon64 3000+
    Zalman CNPS7000AlCu
    512x2 Geil pc3200 RAM
    Chaintech VNf4 ultra (newest bios)
    Seagate 120gb SATA 7200.7
    Radeon x800xl pcie
    asus 56x cdrom
    liteon 52x cdrw
    generic firewire PCI card
    Enermax 420w ATX2.01 PSU

    Running XP pro sp2

    does it happen when you boot into safe mode?
  3. try doing memtest, might be when the system is trying to access that block of memory it's failling

    Well the error code gives you a lead as to it being driver related (HTTP.SYS). Are you running IIS? If not did you install a fresh non-SP2 XP Pro while not behind a router? You could have some sort of nasty if you did. ;)
