    Blue Screen issues in XP (ntfs.sys).

    Hey guys, my CarPC has been in my Acura TL since Sept 2007 and I haven't had a single issue with it until recently it started freezing (audio would have a cd "skipping" effect). Sometimes it would come out of it and resume sound like normal, and a lot of the times I get a blue screen. I'm assuming since I haven't changed anything with drivers/config lately, it's going to be hardware related?

    I have ran a full chkdsk and it came up with no issues.. I'm not really sure how to diagnose what is causing it. Sometimes when the PC freezes, I hear kind of a chirping sound coming from the PC. I can't tell if its from the hard drive, or motherboard though. Of course I pulled the PC and ran it for a couple days in the house and it never froze, the day after I put it back in, its freezing again.

    hopefully you still have your OS install CD (Im assuming XP), as you will have to recover that file from the recovery console. google ntfs.sys blue screen and you will find out how to fix it.

    Right click "my computer" and go to manage, then click on event viewer and check system. You should see an error and you can figure out what it is from there(a lot of times with XP it's a driver that you can just dl a new one, with the blue screen a lot of times it's the storage driver)

    I'm with you on the hardware thing Slayer.
    You mention that it did not freeze when you brought it into the house but did once it was back in the car.
    What are you using for power in the house is it the same startup controller as you have in the car or a different supply ? Do you have all the same devices plugged in ?
    Maybe there is something wrong with a connection in the car 12V and once XP starts up a few devices the power drain is too much.
    I had a similar issue with a dvd drive during an install as the usb power was not enough to restart the disc spinning if it momentarily stopped. Powering the drive from a different source fixed that problem.

    I had the exact same problem, it turned out to be an issue with RoadRunner and iGuidance both trying to access the GPS receiver on the same port at the same time. Once I ran xPort3 to split the port into 2 virtual COM ports and then assigned each program its own port, bingo bango, things were perfect.

    The majority of the time it is an xp driver. If you have an incorrect driver installed. Happened to me all the time with my wireless internet driver.

    Typically when I see this issue in the shop, it's due to a failing hard drive or a corrupt windows install. I would try to run hard drive diagnostics on the drive (let me know if you need help with this), and see what it says.
