Description

Hi,
I have a problem with SQL Server Express, and have no solution. Mybe you can help:
Description of the problem:

I'm a developer so the computer is my work.
I bought a DELL (Inspiron 6400 Core Due 2, 2.0Mhz, 2GB 667 RAM) notebook.
The laptop is crushing, and I'm getting blue screen with the above error message:

 *** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xc0000005,0xbf8E270C,0A8E11868,0x00000000)

 *** win32k.sys - Address BF8E270C base at BF800000, DateStamp 43446058...


It happen when opening tables using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express 9.00.2047.00. A few seconds after opening a table, it appears that the entire form refreshes and the table's grid lines will double for a split second. While my computer does not crash every time this happens, when my computer does crash, it does so
just when the grid lines double. This does not appear to happen on any table in particular and can happen on the very first table I open or,
 arbitrarily, the tenth. This happens on databases that other computers can access with no problem.

DELL replaced the memory, the motherboard, the HD and finally the laptop itself, but without success.
I had to give back the laptop and get back the money, and
I bought a new TOSHIBA A100-786 (Core Due2 1.83 Mhz, 2GB 667 RAM) and surprise. The problem and the blue screens are the same!!!

So, You nobody can say it's hardware problem, because it's NOT.

I have new clean installation of XP Pro with SQL Server Express 2005.

Please help !!!

Best Regards,
Miron Abramson

Dear customer,
This is no more an issue in the SQL Server 2008 SSMS express version. Please let us know if you see this issue again.

Thanks

Hi Mironabramson,

With the next release of SQL Express, the open table operation will be restrictive with a fixed no. of rows. This issue has been around based on so many hardware issues as well. We are closing this at this point. If you find the problem still persisting, feel free to reopen this issue.

Regards
Vinod

Hello Miron Abramson,

Have you looked at the Eventvwr logs for any anomalies post the Blue Screen?

The STOP error message you have posted :

*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xc0000005,0xbf8E270C,0A8E11868,0x00000000)

suggests that the problem at the hardware level.

SQL Server or SSMS bein user level processes can never cause a Blue Screen.

Thanks,
Karthik

Intel Releases Core 2 BIOS Chip Fix:
http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/06/27/intel_core2_duo_bios_fix/

Causes system instability - blue screens etc.
Prehaps its a Hardware issue after all, somebody to test and report back ?

Hi,

I got the same problem here: Dell Precision M65 Notebook with 2GB RAM, Core Duo 2, Windows XP

After a random amount of time working with SQL Server Management Studio Express I get the BSOD with

*** STOP: 0x0000008E ( .... )
*** win32k.sys - Address ....

It does not depend on which table I open ... I already upgraded my video driver to the newest version - problem still exists.

Will there be a solution/patch soon?

Hi,

I also have the same problem on a Sony VAIO VGN-BX670P. All of the instances of this that I have found have been with Intel dual core systems - possibly all Core 2 duo. A temporary workaround that appears to work for me is to go into the advanced display settings and turn off hardware acceleration. My video card is an ATI Mobility Radeon X1600, and it has the most recent drivers available.

As far as reproducing this problem, it happens nearly every time I leave hardware accelleration at full (I havn't tried settings in between). It generally happens when selecting a field to edit, or editing a value, but the timing seem rather random. Some times it will happen the first time I try to edit something, other times I'll be working for 15-20 minutes before it happens.

I'm not using Microsoft IntelliMouse Driver.
The only common pattern I found for all that having the problem is :
Processor Core Due 2 with 2G of RAM.
Until MS will provide a solution, I left the Management Studio for Aqua Data Studio 4.7

Are you using Microsoft IntelliMouse Driver? I found in https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=262721 solution that removing of new 6.x version of Intellimouse Driver resolves our common problem.

I have Acer, not Dell.
Problems are from January, I've been installed new MSDN, SP1 for SQL and security patches from MS and from next day BSOD are fired.
Posted by AaronBertrand on 3/21/2007 at 12:55 PM
Is it possibly a video driver related bug, or something Dell specific? I don't use Open Table but I have a Dell machine with core 2 duo processors and a high-end video card, and I get blue screens all the time on that machine (but none seem related to Management Studio at all). I have a few other Dell machines (two desktops and a laptop), both desktops have dual core, and none of these three machines has ever had a blue screen. So it can't be Management Studio in isolation, else I would be seeing this on all Dells (or all Dells with multi core processors, or all Dells with nvidia video cards, etc). The symptom definitely sounds video driver related to me.

I have same problems and I found on google that other people too. Common sign is using on notebooks with multi core processor. I have for example Acer notebook and problems I have from end of January. Before that I have no problems. I've been tried SP1 and SP2 of SQL 2005, Developer and Express versions and BSOD's are the same. It not depends on table's properties. It can be small table with two int columns like I tried yesterday. When I want add new row BSOD is thrown, for example. I have no problems with SQL 2000 Enterprise Manager, so I using it now again.

Hi,
the size of the table is not meter. it's happen on empty or full table.
also, it can happen almost with every table. the table witch is most commonly happen include the data type:
int, datetime, bigint, varchar(128), varchar(MAX), varchar(255), varchar(MAX).
I remind you again that it's not happen every time I open that table.
I happen maybe one to ten times I open it.
I also attached that table.

Hi MironBramson,

We shall target this issue in our next release. Also we want to reproduce this problem at our end so that we can find a solution. Please let us know what is the table size and what are the data types in it when it happens.

Thanks,
Alok

Yes, I'm connecting DB that on my local machine.
I downloaded the ssms express in the last month (version: 9.00.2047.00).
The DB I'm connecting to is my DB. I created it.
Need Some more info ?
I know I'm not the only one who have this problem. a fast checking over the net found
some others that having the problem, but none of them found the solution.
Waiting for fast solution...

Hi MironBramson,

Thanks for reporting this bug. I would like to know more input on this bug. Are you connecting to a db on your machine itself or to a remote machine? When you download ssms express, which DB are you making the connection with? Could you please update us with this info. Feel free to contact us and probably we can have a call as well.
