BSOD problems, please help

Hi all,

Firstly thank you to all contributors for this great forum. Not sure what a lot of us would do without the help.

I have been getting random BSODs, the most recent was while listening to an mp3 with winamp (wow people still use winamp? apparently so)

my system specs are as follows:

Board: ASUS P8P67 Pro REV3.0
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K (Overclocked to 4.5GHz)
Graphics: MSI GeForce GTX 570 OC
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL (x2)
SSD: Intel 510 Series 120GB
SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 240GB 2.5IN
HD: Hitachi Deskstar 5K3000 2TB SATA3 (x2)
Blu-Ray: Pioneer BDR-203BKS
CPU Fan: Noctua NH-D14
PSU: Corsair TX750 V2 750W

I have attached the minidump file in a zip. Thanks a bunch for any help you may offer.

Memory corruption probably caused by a driver in this case probably sptd.sys). please run these two tests and remove sptd.sys.

Also of note please update your ESET (2+ years old)




1-Memtest.


*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

*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.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

2-Driver verifier


Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data 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/Win7 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.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable


Please remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp, called sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure - Downloads DuplexSecure
q

when you're done you can use this Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) in its place.

thank you for taking the time to look at my system and provide me with sound advice.

i uninstalled alcohol 120 and installed magic iso in it's place. i also ran memtest for a few hours and it came up with no errors.

i also updated my realtek audio driver.

i have not had any bsod since uninstalling alcohol 120 but lets see how it goes.

thanks again

=== I did have those random (and more and more frequent BSOD), until i disconnected my Pionner BDR-205BKS from the system... Interesting to see you have a similar model...
