    Both location have the same exact setup, ie video monitors ram and so on...I have installed every update there is including updating the BIO. Any ideas or suggestions would help thanks.

  • It should be "impossible" to cause a blue screen through managed VB.NET code.  Something else (probably a driver) is at fault.  That is not to say that something in your VB.NET code might be provoking a bug elsewhere.  Look for some pattern regarding the crash.

    This is error code 0x40, TARGET_MDL_TOO_SMALL.  Documented here:

    Cause

    This is a driver bug.

    There are ways to examine the crash dump to get a stack trace.  This probably can be used to identify the driver.  This is outside my area of knowledge.

  • All the systems have XP, they are all dell Vostro they all use a dual video card with 2 monitors on each computer. I think its the 3.0 framework. Honestly I am sure it has to do with this visual studio .net application without it running the blue screen doesnt show but when ever the software is in use it will randomly do this either on terminal 1 or terminal 2 at either location a or b. Both locations are setup independatly of each other with there own sql server express.

    The application runs a dual monitor the customer has a display to show totals and the user has the input monitor. We use touch screen ELO monitors "USB"


    I have also read online about this being a driver bug, but everything is updated, deleted all old video drivers, and installed new ones, upgraded bios, install every single microsoft update there is and still getting same thing. Honestly the applicaation i have is pretty much strait foward simple user input screen with a dual monitor for customer to see what they are being charged for...using sql server express...  also can you please elaborate on exactly what pattern? thanks much
