A user I support is experiencing frequent system reboots each night. When he comes in in the morning, he receives a message stating that a 'Serious Error' has occurred. There's a long string of info below, so I'll say thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer on the issue. Lordhowe Below are the details from his event log: Event Type: Error Event Source: System Error Event Category: (102) Event ID: 1003 Date: 6/6/2009 Time: 8:40:42 AM User: N/A Computer: DLIEBSTERWK2 Description: Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c0000047, parameter2 80521b10, parameter3 a561336c, parameter4 00000000.

Usually the exception address pinpoints the driver/function that caused the problem. Always note this address as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address. Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003. This means a hard coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted /NODEBUG. This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ... If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the system is booted /DEBUG. This will let us see why this breakpoint is happening.

    When this problem started? Any new application/hardware being installed? Any Windows Updates? Check RAM...Free Windows Memory Diagnostic can download from... Check inside the case, is CPU fan too dirty? overheat CPU cos all kind of strange error message too.

    Check for hardware problems. Run a RAM test and motherboard diagnostics.

    This sounds like a hardware or malware problem. Try changing the memory chips out and make sure it's free of malware. Check out this malware removal handbook I wrote that can help you on this path. Best of luck!

    To test RAM i recommend to use memtest:

    Although the symptoms do seem very hardware related, I would take a closer look at the dump you got and you will notice that the faulting process is something to do with BiZ talk server. That being the case, I assume the user has a connection to that server at some time or other. I would be looking in that direction. As for hardware, I would be suspicious of the power supply. I have had this type of issue before and new power supply resolved it. These answers came from a quick Google on the process name shown in the dump. PROCESS_NAME: BTSNTSvc.exe. From the dump it looks like a command or something passed from the server was not understandable to the pc.

    Thanks for the replies. So far, I've run some detailed hardware and memory stress tests. All passed without an issue, so it's not hardware related. It's definitelty not malware. ITguySFI, your answer seems to be most relevant so far.
