    Carputer keeps FREEZING!!!

    I recently installed my Carputer yesterday. Every once in a while it would just freeze and keep skipping the music on the last beat it was on. I am currently running FrodoPlayer. My setup consists of:

    old Compaq p3 1ghz
    192mb sdram
    dynamix 7" touchscreen
    itps and ps200

    O yeah, sometimes a blue screen would pop up and say something about memory? Maybe I need more memory? but I am only running Frodoplayer and nothing else. Only Frodoplayer is running. could it also be that my HDD is old?

    Well if you have that warning why don't you check the memory stick to see if is bad.
    Search for "memory testers" you will find some soft to run the test.
    It doesn't matter if you just running FP or windows or anything else if the module is bad is time to get a new one (the prices of memory are down BTW)

    Memory sticks are still good.

    Now my windows will not even boot up. Right when the Windows loading screen appears the blue error screen comes on saying:

    "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damge to your computer.

    UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

    If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

    Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

    If problem coninues, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press f8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select safe mode.

    Technical information:

    *** STOP: 0x000000ED (0x80EAFA60, 0xC0000032, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)"

    Someone help! im going crazy!

    ---UPDATE---
    If this happens to anyone else, the boot file was corrupted and all you have to do is place the XP disc into the cd rom and repair the boot files.

    I think what caused this in the first place is the ITPS not properly shutting down the computer. How can I avoid this in the future??

    Glad you fixed it. Just to give you a heads up, I have found that windows' fixboot can be a little quirky. For instance, windows comes back minus some system files that it needs for certain apps. A couple of times after fixing boot I had to do a fresh reinstall to get everything back. Well, actually I prolly could have fixed it, but I was too damn lazy.
    Its not the cards you're dealt, its how you play the hand!

    I just took my car for a spin today and it still keeps freezing. I don't know how to solve this one. Anyone have any ideas? The computer is in the trunk with a sub. Could that be it?

    either you have bad memory, or a bad hard drive, or a bad motherboard... probably in this order...

    I would remove one memory stick, then another, if you have more than one, or try switching the slot it is on... I dont really trust mem testers since they can sometimes give you a fake OK...

    Then check with anohter HD, or try a scandisk and a defragmenting the hd... alternatively try re-formating (full format not quick!) the HD or another drive...

    if all that fails it might be a mobo to blame...

    Of course, before doing all of this, remove any peripherals, any usb devices, etc, leave it at a minimum since it might be freezing due to some peripheral being fuctup or bad driver or something
