Kernel Fault Check

  girliebob 19:17 13 Nov 2005


Quite often when I am using my PC laptop to play Football Manager 2006 the screen goes blue and the message 'Data Error' or 'Kernel Fault check' appears and then I have to restart. This is unbelieveably annoying. Does anyone know what I can do to stop this happening?

Any help would be much appreciated. :-)

Try running SFC /SCANNOW with XP disc in comp

Why? What will that do? Does that disable the BIOS memory options such as shadowing and caching?

System File Checker For corrupt files

The following is taken from this link:

Windows Error Reporting Dump Reporting Tool. Found on Windows XP/2003. It shows as a startup item whose execution line usually reads as "KernelFaultCheck" %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 –k. DUMPREP creates memory dump reports that you can send to Microsoft if you answer "Yes" when prompted to send such reports. In our experience this entry only shows up for the first time after your PC has experienced a Windows XP "dump" crash, or an Office XP or Internet Explorer 6 crash where you were prompted about sending the crash results to Microsoft.

Recommendation :
It is our experience that having Error Reporting set to ON only causes more crashes. The mind boggles at this : in both Netscape and Internet Explorer our experience shows that if you turn error reporting ON, you will crash often in either browser, if not sometimes always !! You’ve guessed it, avoid Error Reporting like the plague. In both Windows XP and Windows 2003 turn it OFF by opening the SYSTEM icon in the Control Panel, choosing the ADVANCED tab, and then clicking on Error Reporting.

I have been experiencing a similar problem with my aged PC but have been unable to run sfc /scannow as the process seems to be unhappy about some installed WinXP files being more up-to-date than the equivalent on the original disc. This is a consequent of installing SP2!

I've followed the advice given in Audeal's posting and await developments looking forward to no more problems.

If you persist with SFC it will complete

I think I might be overclocking my memory, how do I modify this?

In BIOS I cannot tell you where to look but that's where the settings are.
