The subject STOP messages are related to the inability of Windows NT to load a pagefile record into memory due to either a software or hardware failure. They possible causes are:
- A bad block.
- Improper termination on a SCSI device.
- Bad cabling from the controller to the disk.
- A disk controller error.
- Exhausting the non-paged pool resources.
The value of the second hexadecimal paramater may help you pinpoint the actual cause of the error:
|Value||M e a n i n g|
|0xC000009A||STATUS_INSUFFICIENT_RESOURCES, caused by lack of non-paged pool.|
|0xC000009C||STATUS_DEVICE_DATA_ERROR, generally due to bad block on the drive.|
|0xC000009D||STATUS_DEVICE_NOT_CONNECTED, bad or loose cabling, termination, or controller not seeing drive.|
|0xC000016A||STATUS_DISK_OPERATION_FAILED, also caused by bad block on the drive.|
|0xC0000185||STATUS_IO_DEVICE_ERROR, caused by improper termination or bad cabling on SCSI devices.|
If you know someone who has the MSDN DDK, the NTSTATUS.H file has additional status codes.
