Blue Screen - Continues after system restore RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an HP MediaSmart EX495 Windows Home Server (v1).  For a long time I've been putting up with random system crashes and finally decided it was time to reinstall the OS.  I reinstalled everything which went fine and got the system fully patched.  Much to my chagrin it continues to crash periodically (on average it's about once a day).  The report I get back indicates it's caused by the ever helpful unknown device driver but the only hardware in the system that isn't factory installed by HP is a couple of Samsung drives that have been fully chkdisked.  I don't have any other software installed at this point so I can't imagine what could be causing this other than a bad CPU, memory, or system disk.

    I've tried analyzing the memory.dmp file but don't know where to go with it.  It doesn't point at a specific driver as far as I can tell and I'm not sure how to use a kernel debugger to get a stack trace as it suggests (let alone what to do with that stack trace).  Any thoughts?

    PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (4e)
    Typically caused by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists (ie: calling
    MmUnlockPages twice with the same list, etc).  If a kernel debugger is
    available get the stack trace.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: 00000007, A driver has unlocked a page more times than it locked it
    Arg2: 0002987e, page frame number

  • A STOP 0x0000004E is likely to be a problem with the memory installed in the server.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Try running Memtest86+

  • Hey guys, sorry for the delayed response--just got sidetracked.

    Not exactly sure how to run Memtest86+ on a system that has no video card.  DDR2 is pretty pricey these days so I hate to go out and buy some in the hopes that it will solve my problem.
