So, my HP Mini just crashed and before I tried to restart this thing an error message popped-up. It said "The instruction at 0x5b7522c0 referenced memory at 0x00000000. The memory could not be written. Click on OK to terminate program". It took a lot of time to restart and in the middle of it there was a blue-screen error. Once I could see the desktop I dragged the mouse to ascertain it was working fine already. Then when I tried to delete videos from my files to make up space in the memory this glitching sound seem to occur while the windows media player opened by itself. Then at the lower right of the screen, at the taskbar, a green arrow icon appeared and when I pointed at the icon it said DirectVobSub. Could anyone help me with this? Is this a hardware problem of some sort? Or a virus?

I'm currently running a scan to check if there's any virus. I'm using Avast apparently. My computer's OS is Windows 7 starter.

Thank you in advance.

Hello yemilee and welcome to TSF,

Do you know if your HP mini uses a HDD (hard drive) or an SSD (Solid State Drive)?

Also, could you provide us with some more info...

Full model number of your netbook (found on a label affixed to the underside of the PC)

The label I found inside the laptop was: Model HP Mini 210-1103 TU

This uses a hard disk drive.

It's a 32-bit OS.

Let me know if you need more information.

  1. Download UBCD (Ultimate Boot CD - Download the UBCD)
    • Scroll down to the bottom of the page and choose a mirror site.
  2. Create a CD from the image file (.iso)
  3. Boot the computer to the CD.
  4. From the menu... Select HDD > Diagnosis > Drive Fitness Test.
  5. When prompted, select ATA only.
  6. Run the quick test and note the result and code.
  7. Run the extended test and note the result and code.
  8. Post the results in your next reply.

Since your mini doesn't have an optical drive, you will need to put UBCD on a USB drive.

This can easily be accomplished by downloading the linked program and following the instructions on the linked page.

Easily Boot Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD) from a USB flash drive | USB Pen Drive Linux

Hello kind sir, I have downloaded the UBCD but can't figure out how to boot it using a USB.. I've read a couple of tutorials (also seen videos) but they don't seem to be working.. I'm still trying out the one that requires RMPrepUSB..

My apologies kind sir and thank you for helping me out with the instructions. I was confused. Anyways, here are the results of the Drive Fitness Test.

(Quick Test)

Disposition Code = 0x00

(Advanced Test)

Disposition Code = 0x00

You mentioned an Extended test and I could find a button or option that said Extended test so I clicked on Advanced Test. I hope I did it right.

I am sorry... The Advanced test is what I meant.

Boot again to UBCD and select RAM from the main menu.
Select Memtest86+.
The test will start automatically. Let it run for a minimum of 2 hours.
Memory errors will show as red on the bottom half of the screen.

Okay... I need you to do two things.

First, run driver verifier. Detailed instructions can be found here...
http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ed-473665.html

Then, follow these instructions and post the requested files in your next reply.

I can't seem to attach the zipped files because they exceed the limit of 5.00MB by just 0.13MB. :( Also, I don't know how to save the reports of perfmon to html.

Split the files and zip them in two separate files.

As for the Perfmon report... Click on "File" then "Save As".

In the "Save as type:" pull down menu, "Report Files (*.html)" should be pre-selected.

I will go through the information provided... I have asked the BSOD specialists to take a look at your memory dumps. Please be patient.

The last 6 minidumps, from March 12 - 24, are the same 0x9F, normally meaning that there's a bad device driver. I ran the latest dump and it blames the RealTek network driver, Rt86win7.sys. See the link and update it: Realtek

Given the large amount of dumps in the zips, there may well be system, program or user files damaged that are adding to the current problems.

Just keep using/testing the computer and note down any oddities/errors and what you were doing around that time that you saw them.

If, or when, you hit another BSOD, upload the memory dump along with any comments and notes you made and we'll investigate further.

Back with reports.
To summarize, I'll present you with this timeline:

04-20-2012 - I updated my VLC player.

04-21-2012 - I used my VLC player and also opened Chrome (used Facebook, 9gag and a Facebook game called Galaxy Life). Minutes later the laptop restarted or re-booted on its own. I didn't see a blue screen error. I ran Drive fitness test and these were the results: Quick test - Disposition Code = 0x00; Advanced test - Disposition Code = 0x00. I also ran the Memtest86+, there were no errors found.

04-22-2012 - I was using Chrome and again it re-booted.

04-23-2012 - I was using Chrome (with only facebook open) and Adobe reader, again it re-booted. I then ran Driver Verifier and encountered BSOD. I went to Safe Mode and restored the system to Restore Point 1. I've attached the results of the Driver verifier and Perfmon.
