Stop Error 0x000000E3

Hi,

Windows Vista Ultimate. I've put this under Games because that's how the
error effects me the most. Basically, I'll put my game's DVD in the drive
and attempt to run that game (Medival II Total War, C&C3) but usually I will
get a BSoD with the above first error. I've recorded a few full errors so
you can see them below:

"A thread tried to release resources it did not own." With various
combinations of the below:

stop: 0x000000E3 (0x86D6C5E0, 0x8608AD78, 0x00000000, 0x00000002)
Stop: 0x000000E3 (0x86AC6390, 0x881E3580, 0x8684D5A0, 0x00000003)
Stop: 0x000000E3 (0x866E93E0, 0x8608AD78, 0x00000000, 0x00000002)

I've got a feeling it's a wider problem than games as whenever I try to
interact with these 'problem' DVD's Windows also Bluescreens (i.e., trying to
explore the DVD, trying to Virus Scan the DVD).

The error seems to have been resolved in W2k but nothing for Vista yet.
Just wondered if anyone had any ideas how to fix it or would it be a case of
waiting for a SP?

Some of the Dxdiag below:

Hi Will, I had the exact symptoms that you are describing. After wrestling with it all day uninstalling apps and switching hardware I finally found what was causing my Bsod. I tracked mine down to the WinDVD application that came with the Asus motherboard. After I removed that everything is working perfectly now. I hope this applies to your situation or can help someone.

Thank you, Tyler

Seeing as how you failed to quote the OP, we have no idea what problem
this is supposed to solve, thus your post is useless, as most from
eggheadcafe seem to be.

Damn, what's to understand, he was getting a BSoD, he uninstalled WinDVD,
and the problem went away.

Seems like a pretty productive day to me? I'm sure "Will" wherever he is
will be happy to see this (there's bound to be a couple Will's out there
with this problem).

Not totally useless, no need to get so hostile.

Why install WinDVD to Vista when WMP11 already plays DVD's?

Hi Pooh-Man, good point. I used WinDVD on XP and installed it on Vista
without thinking about. I will try WMP.

Thank you, Tyler


OK, Vista plays DVD's and burns DVD's, unlike XP. Another good and free
solution is to get VLC. It's plays just about all video and audio files,
including DVD's.

I don't know exactly what that error means but I do know it is a hardware
error and not a software error. Perhaps your DVD/CD drive can't read the cd.
Try cleaning the cd with mild soapy water or get a replacement cd.

I have tried this and it still doesn't work any other suggestions

You have another PC you can try to install it to? That will rule out if it
is a bad disk or not. Ask a friend if you can install it to their PC for
testing purposes.

I had this problem and it drove me nuts! I would get this error if I tried
to watch a DVD movie or play certain DVD games.

The problem was traced to the Intervideo DVD suite which was bundled with my
Asus motherboard. If you've got this installed, it's probably the culprit.
If not, well, it was worth a try.

Uninstalling the Intervideo suite caused its own problems - after the
wretched programs had been removed, Vista would no longer recognise the
DVD/CD drive. I recognised the drivers were present and up to date, but in
device manager it stubbornly remained broken. As my system was barely a
week old I re-installed vista, but if this is too drastic perhaps system
restore would work? I'm new to Vista, and haven't played with system
restore.

I hope this helps.

Joe

Have you been able to get your DVD-rom to work yet, I need to know because I am having the same problem.
