Windows NT computers, and those built on Windows NT technology, may stop responding with one or more of the following STOP error messages.
Errors may be caused by one or more of the following:
1. Hardware failure (memory, processor, or motherboard).
2. Anti-virus software that is running on your computer.
3. Drivers installed by third-party software.
To resolve these behaviors, perform one or more of the following:
1. Replace the faulty hardware. You may be able to determine the faulty hardware by running diagnostics provided by the manufacturer. Or Try disconnecting all of the new hardware that you connected and check if it was because of a hardware the computer stops responding.
2. Disable any anti-virus software that is running on your computer. If the STOP errors no longer occur, contact the anti-virus software manufacturer about a possible upgrade.
3. Disable any third-party drivers that may be running. If the STOP errors no longer occurs, contact the third-party manufacturer about a possible upgrade.
