Verify for any unsigned drivers and eliminate it. 1. Click Start, click Run, type, sigverif and then click OK. 2. Click Advanced. 3. Click Look for other files that are not digitally signed. 4. In the Look in this folder box, type x:\Windows\system32\drivers, where x is the letter of the drive where Windows XP is installed. 5. On the Logging tab, make sure the Save the file signature verification results to a log file 6.check box is selected, and then click OK. 7. Click Start. NOTE: The log file is named Sigverif.txt, and it is saved in the Windows folder. Third-party drivers that are unsigned are displayed as "Not signed." Use the drivers in this list as your troubleshooting starting point.

(you may have to click "Show hidden devices on the View menu" and then disable the device under the Non-Plug and Play Drivers branch). b. Uninstall the software that installed the third-party driver by using the Add/Remove Programs tool in Control Panel. c. Rename the driver in the Windows\System32\Drivers folder. click here;en-us;308514 First if the error is intermitent, (is there is a moment or action you can identify) or (You cant see a pattern). Consider that the numbers you give correspond to hardware failure,examples could be a CDRW using rewritable disks that are incompatible with the drive. Another example could be a faulty RAM module. Other example could be Modems, Sound Cards, Video cards, processors, or even the mother board, (temperature is a great enemy) Try to track down any similarity between errors, lets say temperature, task that you are performing, programs in use, combination of opened programs... everyting.
