RoadHog ERROR

I received this error when on the road in the middle of Utah for a show. After picking the thing up and dropping it about a foot (a trick that the tech support at Leprecon gave me for one of their consoles a few years ago), it worked fine for the show.

Now I am home and getting this message again. Can anyone tell me what it is?

It is a blue screen after the welcome.

It says: "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down...."

"IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"

"STOP: 0x0000000A (0x00000000, 0x0000001c, 0x00000001, 0x804E6BF8)

    Well from my windows experiance a STOP error, very similar to one I have had before, is a driver issue... Not sure whether it is the same on a console though...

    Please tell me you're kidding?

    On a few specific consoles (and computers) in the 1980s, this was a way to re-seat socketed DIP chips that had worked loose in transit. It was a bad idea then and it's an even worse idea now. In the 80's, you were about as likely to knock another chip out of it's socket as you were to get the loose one to make contact.

    Today, almost nothing is socketed, so you risk cracking circuit boards, displays, or worse.

    And if deliberately dropping it does fix something, it means you have a loose connection. The drop won't really fix anything, it will just delay the problem until a more inconvenient time (like in the middle of your show).

    If you have a hardware problem, find it and fix it, abusing the console won't help.

    I am joking (not about the leprecon support telling me to drop a 624).

    Any idea what the error is? It is a new console.

    That's probably a hardware problem. You can try opening it up and checking all the connections. If you're comfortable with servicing computer hardware, re-install the RAM and video card also.

    If you're still having issues, give support a call and they'll coordinate getting your console serviced.

    I had blue screen issues with my new RoadHog when I received it last year. Zach was very helpful and recommended opening the case and pressing on all the connections; graphics card, memory chips etc.

    I discovered one of the memory cards was slightly loose and it clicked when I pressed on it. Obviously moving the console around or in shipping, the memory card became unseated.
