Parameter 2 – An IRQL that was required to access the memory.
Parameter 3 – The type of access, where 0 is a read operation and 1 is a write operation.
Parameter 4 – The address of the instruction that referenced memory in parameter 1.
kernel mode to touch pageable memory at too high a process internal request

address. Other possible causes of this error are an incompatible device driver,
a general hardware problem, and incompatible software.’
Your 0x0000000A will mostly be due to hardware, or a piece of hardware that Windows XP
does not like to play with.
Microsoft says to use the Windows Error Reporting Tool, but that is not so good if this hashappened and keeps happening during an installation. What the tool does if you do get the chance touse it, it sends an error report back to Microsoft, then the tool will report back if there is a fix or aworkaround solution.
When you are prompted to send the error report, click Send Error Report.
The Error Reporting Tool starts automatically.
If a fix or a workaround is available, click More Information after you send the error report to
Microsoft. This helps you obtain the fix or information about how to work around the issue.
Most problems at this stage will be Hardware related problems. The best advice is minimize the
amount of hardware that needs to be installed before a Windows XP installation.
What I mean is just use for the time being what is built onto the motherboard. Typically your
motherboard will already be stamped ‘Windows XP Compatible’. It is only when you start to add extra
stuff that you want, like the super duper Graphics card that runs faster than a Bugatii Veyron, or the
latest and fastest Wireless card. These can start to cause trouble for Windows XP.
Leave these dedicated pieces of hardware off your system until you have a fully working and
streamlined Windows XP installation.
If you are just using a motherboard without adding hardware onto any of the motherboard slots, then
usually it will be a memory module that is the culprit. Again, don’t pack the motherboard with as many
memory modules as you can or fit as much memory as you can. All we want is a working system, so if
If you have a working system and you get the BSoD (Blue Screen of Death) we need to look at the
I hope that helps resolve 0x0000000A Error once and for good!
