Ok, not sure if this is even the right topic to have put this in, but only one i could think of.

Is there a program that can track exactly what is causing a BSOD in XP, and maybe what caused that to cause an error? Can't figure this thing out. I only ever get blue screens when downloading with BitTorrent. If i'm downloading with BitTorrent, but playing a game full-screen game at the same time, i don't get a blue screen (as far as i know. downloaded a relatively small 6 MB file, and didn't get it while i had Worms 3D running). If i'm not using BitTorrent, my PC runs perfectly fine.

most of the time it winds up mentioning a system file, i think from Norton or NVidia (think the name of what was mentioned was ndis.sys). rarely i get one that mentions tcpip.sys. I have also gotten one that mentioned ks.sys, but the only way to get the patch for it is by contacting microsoft. Which to me is pretty stupid, since it's like "ok, so you have experienced this problem? well, we're not satisfied. contact us so we can verify that you actually did have this problem"

sorry bout double post.

This is the first time i've ever had this system file mentioned. Not sure why this one came up, unless XP hates my modem that much when i'm using BT. wonder what that ndis.sys is for though. :confused:

seems like the file thats giving you problems is USBPORT.SYS. what devices do you have attatched to the USB ports? one of them is probably having driver issues.

In XP I have had 3 blue screens of death, all three nvidia faults.

Maybe I think like in win98 you could create a log file that could be created on desktop from windows, which would tell you what and which had caused bsod :eek:

I suspect your graphics card/drivers

Right - I used to get exactly the same BSODs when I had the Geforce fx5200 card in - now I have upgraded to an ATI 9700 pro and I no longer get them :cool: SOOoooo IMHO you could suspect your graphics card (although I agree the USBport file indicates there may be issues there too).

what NIC do you have and have you check to make sure not IRQ conflicts w/ video card?

-edit- what BT client (version) are you using?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
