Upgrade to 5.05 = BSoD in W2K

OK, I gave in to the constant messages from my old, perfectly working version of Winamp to upgrade and now I am regretting it. I use it to play MP3s on my hard drive...that is it....no challenge....two speakers and a couple of MP3's in shuffle mode. After it plays a couple it causes the blue screen of death to appear. A screen that I haven't seen in years....what gives?

I am running a VA-10MB and Windows 2000 with the latest SP. The sound card is on the MB and is a VIA VT1616 6-Channel AC 97.

Recently I tried to exit it and it gave me this error (attached .bmp). Maybe it is a clue.

Keep in mind this is a very stable machine that hasn't ever crashed except with this new version of Winamp....

What version of Winamp were you running before?
Winamp 2.x / 5.x or Winamp3 ?

Were there any 3rd-party plugins installed on the older version? If so, which?

Tried a clean install of 5.05?

What's the details of the BSoD error message?

Info from BSOD

I believe that I was running Winamp version 3??? I didn't install any plugins: to my knowledge just using it to listen to MP3s.

What I am sure about is that I have only gotten the crash while Winamp is running...possibly at the same time as Winword.

I have not tried a clean install. I will do that next. The BSOD message that I am getting is that there is a Page_fault_in_non_paged_Area

Adress A015FE8B Base at A00000000 Date Stamp 4118453d - win32k.sys

Any help would be appricaited. Currently, I can not listen to any music with winamp whil I work...

So, this means that you're logged on a limited user account, yes?
ie. you're not logged on as an administrator.

Try a clean install (see link above in my first reply) and install Winamp 5.06 to your user folder (eg. "c:\documents and settings\(username)\winamp") instead of the default "c:\program files\winamp" dir.

Further info/help/tips here (also from the "Troubleshooters > Common Issues" sticky):

http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=188497 [new Multiuser plugin]
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=185365 (tutorial)

Also please note that was no Winamp version 3.
There is Winamp (v0.x, 1.x, 2.x, 5.x) and there was Winamp3 v1.0.
Winamp3 was a complete rewrite, and a totally separate program. Winamp3 died 2 years ago.
Winamp 5.x is the continuation of the Winamp 2.x line.
You can install Winamp 5.x in the same folder as Winamp 2.x (ie. upgrade), but you cannot install Winamp 5.x in the same folder as Winamp3, because they are two entirely different products.

Did you install Winamp 5.x in the same folder where Winamp3 was installed?
If so, then this would also cause problems, especially with a limited user account under Win2k, where non-driver related BSoD's are more common than under WinXP...

I am logged in as the administrator on a personal machine

I wiped out the earlier version and did a clean install of Winamp 5.06. I thought that that fixed the problem until a minute ago when I clicked on the shortcut and immediately caused a BSOD.

Address 80434870 base at 804000000 Datestamp 40d1d183 - ntoskrnl.exe

I am going to down load and use a memory checker, but I am only having crashes with Winamp.....

Thanks for any help ,

Still Crashing

Still getting a BSOD when I am using Word and Winamp 5.0. I have run a memory checker and it reports no memory problems. I no longer get an error message when I try and exit Winamp. It just crashes while I am working in Word and playing MP3s from the hard drive....

I am stumped....

Hmm, ok, let's see a HijackThis log please.

Are you using Norton AV by any chance?
If so, go into Norton options and uncheck "enable office plugin"

Other than that...

Make sure you're running DirectX v9.0c

I have used Hijak this is the past to clean up my machine. No Norton AV. I have posted the log file below.

Although my symtoms weren't the same as others, I decided to try and uninstall any IDE drivers that may have gotten installed on my VIA MB system. I didn't install them conciously, but I figured that I would go through the steps to uninstall them. After that I ran both WinAmp and Word for sometime without a crash. Hopefully that is it...

Send a message via AIM to Rovastar
I had a big reply set up but it got lost in the ether that is the net.

I need the exact STOP error message to narrow down what is happening

e.g. 0x00000050 (0xa0c50000, 0x00000000, 0x8045b8c7, 0x00000000)

Lots of the errors with 0x50 and win32k.sys relate to corrupted fonts and the like and this does tie in with your Word problem also.

Is the ntoskrnl.exe Stop error the same?

It appears to be more than a winamp issue here.

I would look at re-insatlling your fonts and running Office Update.

Just to confirm that your HJT log is clean, although there is a newer version of HJT (v1.99.1 c/o my above link) which does show a few more things.


Did you install the Enhanced VIA IDE Accelerator Driver?

If so, then uninstalling that and reinstalling the standard IDE driver (c/o Hyperion 4-in-1 package) should've fixed all problems.

I have gone through the uninstall procedure for the VIA IDE accelerator drivers...not sure that it did anything because I am not sure they were installed.

Hopefully the above fixed the problem. After doing the above, I was working in Word while running Winamp. Without any problems. It is hard to be certain though, because it does not crash right away, but takes some time.

I will record any BSOD messages that I get.

I will try a font re-install and an Office update.
