    Help! I recently installed XP Home Ed. On HP Pavilion 7940.

    I keep getting Blue screen crash when on Inerntet.

    Always references file ltdmnt.sys, my modem driver....

    ErrorS: "DRIVER IRQL_NOT_LESS-OR-EQUAL"

    Also, just recently had another crash: "An attempt was made to write to read-only memory."


    I have a Lucent Win Modem, went to Agere Systmes site an downloaded 8.22 driver, seemed to reduce the frequency of crashes somewhat. But it's still crashing....

    Also, I have updated to the most recent Phoenix BIOS...

    Any suggestions, before I go out and buy a now modem???

    I'm using a lucent win modem too & the only driver I have ever used is the one that comes with xp. Maybe that error you get might be pointing to some bad ram. Maybe.

    ps welcome to the forums. :D

    Looks like you might be right, Hipster, You gave me something to go on. I ran a "burn in test", and guess what? Error verifying data in RAM.

    I'm on my way out to buy a DIMM...


    tx..!

    think I got it

    RAM didn't do it. Finally, after a lot of research, went to BIOS and disabled Plug and Play option. Haven't had a problem since in 2 days.
