Windows stop error

Hi,first of all,i need to say this about my computer: Semp Toshiba Lince Station,Intel Celeron Processor 1.00 GHz,120MB RAM,Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2.I've been obtaining a stop error where it goes to a blue screen then restarts the computer.Sometimes,it doesn't even show the screen and not even reboot properly,with the cabinet making a strange noise so i have to wait for a while to reboot the system.I sent an error report to Microsoft,but it only says it's caused by an unknown device driver.I checked event logs and error reports,but i couldn't figure out what's causing the problem as of yet.I can't make any back-ups of my files,nor do i have any,so i'm hesitating about reformatting and repairing Windows XP (it came buit-in in my comp,i don't have a install CD).Could someone please me find the origin of this stop error? I'm not that brilliant with computers,so i'm unable to find which driver is causing the system to shut down that way.I beg you: please help me! I'm running out of options now.Below i'll list some of the error logs from when it 1st occurred and the most recent ones (directly from the event logs):

Sorry for the long post,but i also felt the urge to add this,it's a message i received when one of the stop errors occurred:

Award Boot Block BIOS v1.0 (c)2000 Award Software,Inc.

BIOS checksum error
Detecting floopy drive A media...
INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER



Also,it appeared on a blue screen,when my computer shut down past week:

STOP: 0x00000050 (0xEF5AD268,0x00000000,0xFBF34A50,0x00000000)

portcls.sys - Address FBF34A50 base at FBF24000,Date Stamp 41107f13



And there's it too,it appeared on a blue screen when my computer firstly ever shut down:

IRQL_NOT_OR_LESS_EQUAL


I hope those infos are enough for someone to help me out fix this problem,i'm really desperate here.If only i knew how to read that all that data,but i only know that portcls.sys is a Class Driver for Miniport Devices...please,i beg you all: Help me! I don't want my computer to shut down unexpectedly everytime i use it.Help me,guys!

Welcome to CTH

If in fact your are running 120MB Memory (which tells me you have on-board video using 8MB memory) that is one of your problems. Yes XP will run on 120MB memory, but increasing the memory to at least 256MB will stop many errors.

cabinet making a strange noise , really concerns me, is this a whinning noise or a clicking noise? Did this noise start about the same time as the errors? If so could be the hard drive going south.

portcls.sys is a system driver for PCI and ISA/DMA audio devices

Do not recognize the language Portuguese????

BIOS checksum error can be caused by faulty memory or the CMOS battery is getting weak.

Have you tried booting into SAFE MODE and if so does it do it then????

Oooops,sorry guys,i forgot to translate some of text there.I'm using the Windows XP Home Edition Brazilian version,that's why the Portuguese up there.Murf,don't worry about the noise anymore,it's just the computer rebooting.Errr,could you explain me what's a portcls.sys and what does it do in my computer? Like,do i have the need to use it? I tried to delete this file once,and it appeared again in the drivers folder.How can i disable it permanently?
Also,by faulty memory you mean i'm using too much of the HD space? I only have 857MB left from 18,6GB of usable space (i don't have the means to do any back-up!).And if the CMOS battery is getting weak,how can i fix it?
Wolflmg,i just finishing reading the text in that page and that IRQL_NOT_OR_LESS_EQUAL message still bugs me? Any ideas in how to find the device driver causing the system error? I already uninstalled all the recent drivers i had installed lately,but i don't think it worked yet.
Murf,Wolflmg,thank you,thank you so much for helping me! I really appreciate it.Just for you to know,I didn't had any System Error like that as of now since 05:31:35 of 2/27/2006.By the way,i didn't run any applications or programs that requires memory yet...

As Murf has mentioned, running XP with 120mb of RAM is going to cause lots of unecessary problems and odd results. From your last post your HDD is virtually full as well, so the Windows swap file will be having difficulties too.

Before you spend too much time doing anything, try to free up some Hard Drive space and heed Murf's advice and get at lest 256mb of RAM in there, if not 512mb.

You will probably find that many of your errors will magically disappear if you do this

I'm glad to report it's March 1st and i still haven't had any stop errors since Feb.27! I already ran many programs that require memory,and nothing happened at all.I cleaned a bit of space (but not much,i can't burn anything,unfortunately) in my HD,but...Hmm,i have been using Windows XP in this computer since 2002 and i didn't have any weird issues with it,at least until now.Is it that important to upgrade the RAM,'cause i'm in no condition of affording the funds for an upgrade in my computer,not now.It'll have to wait.Oh yeah,yesterday i installed the latest version of Adaptec's ASPI driver.It came with a version checker,and mine was an older one.I hope it helps...

OK,i just found this piece of information when i was browsing my computer.I was wrong about the date when the errors first occurred.Oh well,in January 6th,Microsoft released a security update (KB912919),which is in this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/brasil/secu.../ms06-001.mspx

At exactly 03:00 AM of that day,my Windows Update downloaded and installed KB912919.Then,on the first hours (morning) of January 6th,2006,i got the first Blue Screen of Death ever and my computer crashed.Today i realize every program i used that got me the infamous BSoD,or just a plain black screen anyways,with the comp still on was a program that uses GDI to process graphics and images.My computer doesn't crash when i use Windows Media Player,Internet Explorer or something.It always happens when i use one of that programs with GDI as an option for video settings,usually ending up in a Black Screen of Death now.The crashes happen about 20 minutes after the program was started.Windows runs normally when i do not use that programs.
All of this is happening since the 1st day i got that security update from WU.Could someone point me if that KB912919 thing may cause crashes or strange issues with programs that use GDI to process images? I'm about to consider the uninstall of that security patch as a solution.Those programs were doing fine until that day.

Xp will run smoothly with 512mb ram.
So buy a used ram on Ebay, or stop some unnecessary service on your windows system.
