Repetitive BSOD while running P2P apps

Recommended Posts

I always having a BSOD when running P2P apps like limewire.

error message:

tcpip.sys - address fa6c1448 base at fa6be000

I have already tried the ff:

1) reinstalling the network card driver

2) check RAM (found no error / damage)

Most of P2P software use a lot connexions a the same time and since SP2 XP has a limited number of thesse connexions. It can by modified by editing a reg key but i don't remember which one. Look on the MS website.

you could also solve your issue by not running them. reduces the chances of getting a virus too. not to mention the chances of getting caught. i don't know many people who can afford $2000 a song. i sure as heck cant. i don't use any p2p software. if i want it, i buy it. if i don't have the money for it, i find a friend who has it. much safer. like im borrowing one of my teachers spools of CDs, that'll give me plenty of music :lol:

If anything, that'd only make things worse. The limitation on the number of connections is on half-open connections - or connections that haven't been closed. I haven't patched my system, and I'm still able to make plenty of connections when using BitTorrent (plenty > 500).

Check the drive for errors using chkdsk and then run System File Checker. What anti-virus program and firewall are you using? Poor ones might improperly hook into the network stack and cause problems.

Don't you know that is part of a new Windows fix??? :P:blink::blushing::w00t:

This is my guess too... firewalls especially don't like handling hundreds of connections at once.

I'm using avg anti-virus (no firewall included) and no firewall (not even window's), and I'm using this app before and I'm only getting this problem now.

I think theres a fix program in Hirens BootCD which can be downloaded here.

REMOVED - No links to warez.

its called XP-TCPIP-Winsock-Repair.bat, if you try that maybe it would solve your problem? It rewrites the registry keys to make it look as though the TCP/IP protocol has been reinstalled. Just a suggestion.

Sounds like a rare hardware/driver incompatibility with the software. For future reference, this is an excellent resource for troubleshooting all kinds of Windows STOP/BSOD messages. No reference of 'tcpip.sys' is mentioned there.

I'd suggest using another known-good NIC card.

No I jokingly meant a windows fix caused the problem.
