    Intel EXPI9301CT, Firewire, BSOD Target_mdl_too_small, Stop: 0x00000040 (0,0,0,0)

    Bill.

      Hi,

       

      P.S. This is a lower priority problem than what is being discussed here: "Unplugged" message immediately followed by "Now Connected"

       

      When I play music from WAV files on my PC through a LaCie Firewire 800 PCI adapter and am connected to the internet the PC periodically dies with:

       

          BSOD

          Target_mdl_too_small

          Stop: 0x00000040 (0,0,0,0)

       

      While staring at the blue screen there is warbling coming out of the speakers.

       

      I recovered by powering off/on and not playing music while connected to the internet.

       

      I did a little research:

       

      search: https://www.google.com/search?q=bsod+Target_mdl_too_small

       

          TARGET_MDL_TOO_SMALL blue screen errors can be caused by a variety of

          hardware, firmware, driver, or software issues.

              "This is a driver bug. A driver has called the IoBuildPartialMdl

              function and passed it an MDL to map part of a source MDL,

              but the target MDL is not large enough to map the entire range

              of addresses requested."

       

      My PC is :

       

      7.5 year Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R motherboard

      Windows XP service page 3

       

      Intel EXPI9301CT 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express Desktop Adapter Gigabit CT,

      which is being used instead of the integrated "Realtek RTL8168/8111 PCIe Gigabit Ethernet NIC" connected to Verizon FiOS.

       

      Question: is there any debugging I can do to figure out why this is happening.?

       

      Thanks,

      Bill
