Hi Jordon

These were caused by a memory double fault exception (probably caused by a driver)

I would run memtest to test the ram and driver verifier to find which driver it is


1- Memtest

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86.com - Memory Diagnostic

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.


2-driver verifier

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Hey Zigzag, ive done the driver verifier just now and it done a bsod on start, then restarted couldnt even see what it said really something about driver taking up to much memory? then on restart it all ran fine and has been now for 2 hours.. and ive been putting it under pressure on starcraft 2, im sure i will get a bsod sooner or later though, anything else you would suggest? are my drivers not updated enough?

Thanks, Jordon.

This one was driver verified and was caused by your video driver.

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

If you removed the past driver like this

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.


And installed the newest driver for the video card (ATI Radeon HD 4290) from them and you are still getting the directX BSOD's you may have a card problem, heat, power, etc.


I would run system file check to verify and repair you OS

Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.



Might also want to re-install direct X

Hey Zigzag,

i have done the SFC /SCANNOW, and used driver sweeper to uninstall the old drivers and put the new drivers on with no change, i havnt tried to uninstall Direct X and update it yet but this is defiantly something i will do, also the SFC /SCANNOW showed no errors and all was well.

Thanks, Jordon.
