    WinDbg can do it. When it works that is ... :-( Simply break into the
    machine and look at the call stack. Then treat it like a post-mortem debug.

    Hi all,

    I am facing a problem where i am running into this scenario.

    Machine NT4
    I load the Machine with my software and then start running it.(It includes
    Hardware and software)

    what i see is after running for a while(5 minutes), the machine hangs.
    and when i saw the stack it shows the following


    fffffffff3480bdc ffffffff80141c8a NT!RtlpBreakWithStatusInstruction
    fffffffff3480bdc ffffffff8011b7ca NT!KeUpdateSystemTime+0x13e
    fffffffff3480c60 ffffffff8011b980 NT!KiRestoreInterrupts+0xe
    fffffffff3480c68 ffffffff801b74b9 NT!KeThawExecution+0xe
    fffffffff3480c70 ffffffff801b8c53 NT!KdExitDebugger+0x1d
    fffffffff3480cc0 ffffffff801193ba NT!KdpTrap+0xeb
    fffffffff3480e94 ffffffff8013f0f1 NT!KiDispatchException+0x184


    and the mouse stops working....i can use only Keyboard from there on
    wards...

    and if press GO in the debugger everything starts fine but the Mouse still
    doesn't work...


    Could somebody throw light on this...



    thanks in advance,
