What is causing this problem??///


Hi Jasinox,

Welcome to Microsoft Vista answers Forum!

I have few steps here that might fix the issue.

If you have windows installation disc for Windows Vista, I would suggest you to perform startup repair.

Startup Repair is a Windows Vista recovery tool that can fix certain problems, such as missing or damaged system files that might prevent Windows from starting correctly. When you run Startup Repair, it scans your computer for the problem and then tries to fix it so your computer can start correctly.

Startup Repair is located on the System Recovery Options menu, which is on the Windows Vista installation disc. If your computer manufacturer has preinstalled recovery options, Startup Repair might also be installed on your hard disk. If your computer does not include Startup Repair, your computer manufacturer might have customized or replaced the tool. Check the information that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website. Click on the link below to perform Startup Repair on the computer:

If the issue still persists then I would suggest you to run the System File Checker {SFC} scan on the computer which would replace the corrupted system files.

Follow the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.

I would suggest you to empty the temp folder and later follow the steps below:

i.                    Click Start>>type %temp% in the search box>>press enter>>delete everything present in the temp folder.

1.      Click StartCollapse this imageExpand this ima, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.

2.      Right-click cmd in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator. Collapse this imageExpand this image

If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue

3.      At the command prompt, the following line, and then press ENTER: sfc /scannow

When the scan is complete, test to see whether the issue that you are experiencing is resolved.

Hope this information is helpful.
Let me know if this worked.
All the best!

To add to Swathi's excellent advice.

BCC a is :


This bug check is issued if paged memory (or invalid memory) is accessed when the IRQL is too high.

The error that generates this bug check usually occurs after the installation of a faulty device driver,
system service, or BIOS.

If you encounter bug check 0xA while upgrading to a later version of Windows, this error might be caused
by a device driver, a system service, a virus scanner, or a backup tool that is incompatible with the new

Resolving the Problem

If a kernel debugger is available, obtain a stack trace.

To resolve an error caused by a faulty device driver, system service, or BIOS

1.Restart your computer.

2.Press F8 at the character-based menu that displays the operating system choices.

3.Select the Last Known Good Configuration option from the Windows Advanced Options menu. This option
is most effective when only one driver or service is added at a time.

To resolve an error caused by an incompatible device driver, system service, virus scanner, or backup tool

1.Check the System Log in Event Viewer for error messages that might identify the device or driver that
caused the error.

2.Try disabling memory caching of the BIOS.

3.Run the hardware diagnostics supplied by the system manufacturer, especially the memory scanner. For
details on these procedures, see the owner's manual for your computer.

4.Make sure the latest Service Pack is installed.

5.If your system has small computer system interface (SCSI) adapters, contact the adapter manufacturer to
obtain updated Windows drivers. Try disabling sync negotiation in the SCSI BIOS, checking the cabling and
the SCSI IDs of each device, and confirming proper termination.

6.For integrated device electronics (IDE) devices, define the onboard IDE port as Primary only. Also, check
each IDE device for the proper master/subordinate/stand-alone setting. Try removing all IDE devices except
for hard disks.


Here are some methods to possibly fix the blue screen issue. 

BlueScreenView scans all your minidump files created during 'blue screen of death' crashes, and displays the
information about all crashes in one table - Free

Many BlueScreens are caused by old or corrupted drivers, especially video drivers however there are other causes.

You can do these in Safe Mode if needed or from Command Prompt from Vista DVD or Recovery Options if your
system has that installed by the maker.

This tells you how to access the System Recovery Options and/or from a Vista DVD

You can try a System Restore back to a point before the problem started if there is one.

The log might give you the answer if there was a corrupted driver. (Does not tell all the possible driver issues).

Also run CheckDisk so we can rule out corruption as much as possible.

Often updating drivers will help, usually Video, Sound, Network Card  (NIC), WiFi, 3rd party keyboard and
mouse, as well as other major device drivers.

Manually look at manufacturer's sites for drivers - and Device Maker's sites.
