This can potentially help you avoid hours of troubleshooting headaches associated with SYS errors. Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall Windows. Therefore as you have noted there are indeed likely to be a lot of HP users encountering this particular error depending on how many systems were setup as was apparently mine BTW, what other devices are installed?

On my machine this problem is causing even KB918005 hotfix only. Please start a New Thread if you're having a similar issue.View our Welcome Guide to learn how to use this site. Strange that they would have the motherboard chipset though.

DriverDoc updates all of your PC device drivers, not just those associated with your SYS blue screen error. After doing some googling, I found that there was a KB and a fix available on Microsoft's website. The confusing thing is the school I do IT for has several pc's of the same hardware & software, some worked first time and some needed the files copying across.   I made my virtual memorystatic, and still BSOD's.

However, it has been occurring much more frequently these past few weeks. the only devices installed are the intel 865 chipset and the nvidia drivers for the fx5200 (176.19 i think?). More specifically, these portcls.sys errors can be caused by: Incorrectly configured, old, or corrupted Internet Explorer Versions device drivers. (very common) Corruption in Windows registry from a recent portcls.sys-related software change news Note: CIS benchmarks require that Critical and Important severity security hotfixes must be installed.
