What's new

blue screen of death



New Member
I uninstalled the software for the two modems, shut down and restarted. After a while the blue screen showed again at around 8:06 or 8:07. Windows log showed no errors for Application, but the Systems folder shows the following for around that time:

8:07:39 The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000ef (0xffffe001878637c0, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: ce7057ae-b04c-4579-8724-8b39cd16e6e4.

8:07:31The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

8:07:36The previous system shutdown at 7:56:49 AM on ‎2/‎24/‎2016 was unexpected.

8:10:44 The server {784E29F4-5EBE-4279-9948-1E8FE941646D} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

A DCOM registration error is very difficult to track down. If what you are seeing continues you may want to consider a factory reset.
