Bug Check 0xF3: DISORDERLY_SHUTDOWN

The DISORDERLY_SHUTDOWN bug check has a value of 0x000000F3. This indicates that Windows was unable to shut down due to lack of memory.

Important Info If You Have Received a STOP Code

bsod

If you received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss.

For information about how to recover from this error, see Resolving Blue Screen errors in Windows.

DISORDERLY_SHUTDOWN Parameters

The following parameters are displayed on the blue screen.

ParameterDescription

1

The total number of dirty pages

2

The number of dirty pages destined for the page file

3

Windows Server 2003 only: The size of the nonpaged pool available at the time of the bug check (in pages)

Windows Vista and later: Reserved

4

Windows Server 2003 only: The current shut down stage

Windows Vista and later: The most recent modified write error status

 

Cause

Windows attempted to shut down, but there were no free pages available to continue operations.

Because applications were not terminated and drivers were not unloaded, they continued to access pages even after the modified writer had terminated. This causes the system to run out of pages, since the page files could be used.
