No, but often a file is listed at the bottom of the BSOD...

and often something (page fault blahblahblah or some such) is listed at the stop next to the error.

I haven't had any luck at all searching the original numbers posted, with the exception of a lot of other complaints about that error on other boards and responses with suggestions that might or might not work.

I wanted to try to find out, particularly from MS what that code signifies. Probably mostly for my own curiosity, as I am not the worlds greatest troubleshooter.

Stop codes are more known for their total lack of info, as far as "something caused something" goes.

Actually, I'd say you are a pretty good troubleshooter.

I did not know that about stop codes.

But I can't recall having ever seen one on my own screens... So thanks for that bit of info. I think I will have to scrounge for some stop code BSOD images to examine.

Thanks for the compliment, also. I'd risk my standard 'You are a ....', but it seems inane somehow.

Practice makes perfect in all things.

So the more that you accept compliments or fix Windows problems the better you'll get at it. ;\

Of course that falls to pieces with me as I don't know what I'm doing ever. :^0

BF you realize that you are a really silly girl don't you?

But as you seem to like obscure M$ Error Messages go back to the Dos Days and find out what this one means

Device 6 Missing

That one nearly drove me totally insane quite a few years ago now and then when M$ rang back with what it was supposed to mean I wanted to punch out the guy on the phone. Mainly because what he was saying was not only stupid but he admitted that it was wrong. I never did find out what that means or if what M$ said was correct it couldn't be displayed.

silly girl...

Good of you to notice! I have spent much time in the search for inner silliness.

Ok, I googled Device 6 missing a little bit and found nothing. While you have now got my curiosity up I've no time for it at the moment.
Putting it on the burner until semester break...

Well after you get committed BF

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to silly girl...

Have someone contact me and I'll tell them what M$ said to me about that Error Message.

It will not help one little bit but at least the Shrink will have a name to call your condition.

Bellevue? Is that a franchise operation now?

by seanferd In reply to Well after you get commit ...

Do they have them everywhere?

I'd come to visit. I used to work in a lovely institution in PA. Complete with a network of underground tunnels, including former cells, now disused, but must have made for a fantastic visit back in the day.

Bad News BF No I will not Visit you in any place like that

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Well after you get commit ...

Mainly because I would never get out ever again. I know that they are just waiting for me to pay them a visit so they can get their dirty little hands on me to cure me of the obsession of working with computers.

And I don't even know why I'm working with them or how it started.
