We have an application deployed on Windows 2008 R2 and Tomcat 5 and and JAVA 1.5.11
When we start the application service from the Windows services manager it can not be restarted and it gives EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION error in tomcat logs.
The log is as follows:

# An unexpected error has been detected by HotSpot Virtual Machine:
# EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x6d641e63, pid=2944, tid=3968
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (1.5.0_11-b03 mixed mode)
# Problematic frame:
# V [jvm.dll+0x1e63]

We tried to increase java ots setting and also PermGen size to 256 but the Problem still persists.
The tomcat restart happens after frequent trials but it does not start as such.

While going through JVM dump logs, what we found out that "eden space" (i.e., new Garbage collector) in cases of this specific scenario running service as system service, it is not able to inflate the assigned memory to start garbage collection.
