Windows 7: BSOD playing WoW or unplugging soundcard

BSOD playing WoW or unplugging soundcard

I recently started playing WoW again after almost a year, and now my computer has suddenly started getting bluescreens when I play. It has also sometimes got bluescreens when I unplug my Line 6 UX2 soundcard, which has been going on for a while. I have never got bluescreens when I play WoW until now. So I would like to get some help analyzing what's wrong. My computer has also since I installed this version of Windows 7 occasionally shut down or rebooted randomly without even giving me a bluescreen. I don't know if this can be fixed, but if you can help me with that too, it would be great.

I've got Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit. It's not the original OS installed on my computer, I used Windows XP Professional 32-bit as my first OS and then the Windows 7 Beta before upgrading to this version. It's an OEM-version, I got it installed with my current HDD when I bought it. The age of my hardware is almost exactly three years, and I've used this OS and my current HDD for about one and a half years.

Would be very grateful if you could help me! Thanks!

JanneRoos hi and welcome


Several problems here



1-ASACPI.SYS

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause. Yours 2004


Please visit this link: ASUS teK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE

Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.SYS file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).



2-Memory corruption probably caused by a driver. please run these two tests


A-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+



B-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/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.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
