Hello, the past few days (and once early last month) my computer has had a few BSODs. I don't remember what I was doing when the first one occurred, but the next two happened while playing World of Warcraft and the last two while watching Starcraft 2 streams. WhoCrashed is saying the following for all crashes:
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\060511-5304-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe
Bugcheck code: 0xD1 (0xFA5F, 0xD, 0x8, 0xFA5F)
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that a kernel-mode driver
attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time. From looking around
, the crashes seem to either be RAM or driver related. Running "perfmon /report," I found that there were no USB controller drivers
so I installed them (could that have been the problem?). My computer hasn't had a BSOD since installing the driver, but the crashes seemed pretty random/inconsistent.
I've not yet run Memtest86+ for more than ~30 minutes and plan on doing so tonight, but the brief initial test found no errors. Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? x64
- the original installed OS on the system? Yes
- an OEM or full retail version? I think retail. (Got it from MSDNAA)
- What is the age of system (hardware)? About 1.5 years
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) About 6 months, and I have not tried reinstalling yet.
Anybody have any ideas of what is causing the crashes?
Thanks for the help.
