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

Hi,

P.S. This is a lower priority problem than what is being discussed here:

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 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

Hi Bill,

For this issue, we recommend to contact the firewire adapter support. In the meantime, we'll try to fix your network connection problem.

Hi Sandy,

The only odd thing is, the entire system was working fine, for years, until I installed the Intel Ethernet card.

I will eventually continue with the firewire driver research, but for now, I have to turn the PC over to someone else for a few months and they won't be using the Intel Ethernet card.

This item can be closed.

Thanks,

Bill

Hi Bill,

System changes during installation may have affected the card. Should you find anything, feel free to contact us.
