Hello, i am constantly experiencing BSODs ...
Always, it is "tcpip.sys" mentioned on the screen.
And the laster analysis of the minidump talks about TDI.SYS Sandra Light says the following about my system:
Windows XP Home, 32 Bit
GigaByte EP43-DS3L Motherboard
Chipset A89P
2 * 2 GB RAM (Team Group, Team-Elite-800)
NVIDEA GeForce GTS 250
Onboard Giga_Byte RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) PCIe Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
With "ipconfig.exe", i can see "Ethernetadaper LAN" and a second LAN connection, that but has nothing configured.
I installed Win XP fresh about 1 or 2 years ago, after running Windows 2000 for a long time.
The crashes mostly occur, when i do "something" with a network connections (using VLC, using firefox, ...)
Sometime, i have 3 or 4 on a day. And when i do not use anything remote (just locally working on images, for example), no crashes occur.
I already ran different memory checks and disks, but to no avail.
I am badly frustrated and have no idea left, what to do.

The analysis of the minidump file:

You can try and replace the active TDI.sys - https://support.microsoft.com/kb/888017

Click Start, RUN and type msconfig - press enter.
Under the General tab, click on 'Expand File'
Type tdi.sys in the 'File to Restore' box
Type C:\WINDOWS\I386 in the 'Restore From' box
Type C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers in 'Save file in' box
Click Expand button

Reboot.


edit: check that your i386 is there - it may be elsewhere.

Hi

The last module on the stack was TCP/IP and the BSOD is blaming TDI.SYS.
These both point to your networking. Therefore:

1. You can update your network card drivers. If they are already updated then uninstall your network card/drivers and reinstall. Make sure you write down all your network settings before uninstalling (Eg IP address/Gateway/DNS etc - If you are not using DHCP)
Direct Link to Gigabyte driver site: https://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...47&dl=1#driver

2. Uninstall any antivirus programs you have. You want to especially uninstall any firewalls you may have. Firewalls interrupt networking traffic to analyze the packets of data, therefore you firewall could be causing the BSOD. Some antivirus programs come with firewalls. If you want you can install Micrsoft Security Essentials in the iterim while you are testing: https://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

3. Do you have any 3rd party remote control software installed (VNC, PCanywhere, TeamViewer etc)? If so try uninstalling it to see if that is causing your problems.

Hello, CCT
i could not find such a directory on my system ...

But i have two instances of tdi.sys:

But checksums say, they are equal:
3956913333 19072 ./system32/dllcache/tdi.sys
3956913333 19072 ./system32/drivers/tdi.sys

I have Agnitum Outpost Firewall 1.0 installed - now removed it!
My Windows Firewall is disabled.

I could find TightVNC and UltraVNC on my computer - removed both!

Also, i found a Proxy server, "Proxomitron" - which i removed


And, i found something name "System Requirements Lab" installed, which i cannot interprete ... Google hints to something from NVIDIA, so i did not remove it directly

I found "REALTEK GBE & FE Ethernet PCI-E NIC Driver" installed and am going to seek an update for that now - thank you for the link!

One more thing: i found VMware Server installed - which also created this second LAN interface. I am going to remove that too if i can find a way (it is not listed as installed software)!

So, now i am going to reboot - maybe this helped already :)

After that, i will download new network drivers, if they are new compared to the installed one.
Will report back then!

Thank you very, very much, already!

Put your Install cd in the drive and check where the i386 is.

Then do the same routine BUT refer to that as the source.

OK, i reinstalled all downloads from GigaByte - but the network drivers were the same! (Still uninstall and reinstalled)
I also removed a RealTek network diagnostics utility.
Now i am going to check your tip, CCT!

Thank you - wil report back with my experience (and hopefully lack of BSOD)!
:)

You'll need the XP CD to do this, but if you launch SFC /SCANNOW from the Run prompt, Windows will automagically replace the bad files. Cheers.

AFAIK that doesn't mean they are the same, just have equal amount of data.

Replacing the one in system32/drivers with the one from /dllcache at least proves the original driver was ok (if nothing happens).

Thank you, CCT! Just for the record, "cksum" does make a hash key comparision between the files, which should make sufficiently clear, that those files are the same! So, far i did not experience another BSOD!!! But let´s wait some days more :)
