Hi everyone,

I have a user that experienced a BSOD. I didn't actually see the error but I was able to copy the mini dump file. I have attached it for your review and greatly appreciate any help in the matter.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Revcall, welcome to SF!
Though dmp's tell us a lot, the info we need is described here: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html Please post the rest of this info?

In this dump there a two possible suspects, failing the rest of the info, it is a guess as to what to check first.

Your bugcheck has these possible causes, generally: Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility

First thing I'd check is Norton. Those files could not be referenced correctly in the dump and sometimes, that's a sign. As a test de-install and IMMEDIATELY download and install new or other ( free examples are MSE or Avast!)

Please see these links for uninstalling your AV:
Uninstallers (removal tools) for common antivirus software - ESET Knowledgebase
or here

Ultimate Collection of Uninstallers / Removal Tools for All Popular Anti-Virus Software - Tweaking with Vishal

Then reboot.
Sometimes these uninstallers do not remove all they should out of Registry:
Run CCleaner, both regular and registry.

Next install your preferred AV immediately.
Next the faulty driver in the dump has to do with graphics drivers and direct X.
I am unsure of this friends system details but I'd download latest graphical devices drivers from manufacturer. Make sure you really de-install the old first:
Quote:
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Driver Sweeper

Driver Sweeper is a fast tool to remove driver leftovers from your system. It's very important to remove your drivers on a proper way, because driver leftovers can cause problems like stability and startup problems. You can use it if you want to update/remove drivers from your system.

How to use ?

There are two methods to use Driver Sweeper.
Both methods achieve the same results. This method is always able to clean all files.

This method will delete remaining files upon reboot (if deleting failed). You can clean your drivers this way:

- Use the official uninstaller(s) of the driver(s) you want to uninstall.
- Reboot your PC in Safe Mode.
- Run Driver Sweeper and select what to clean.
- Analyse lists all the entries possible to remove, cleaning removes the entries selected.
- More drivers can be selected for the same cleaning process.

What can it be used for ?
The current supported drivers are NVIDIA (Display and Chipset), ATI (Display), Creative (Sound) Realtek (Sound), Ageia (PhysX) and Microsoft (Mouse).

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy, from the manufacturers' site if possible.
