Windows 7: BSOD 000003b System Service Exception

BSOD 000003b System Service Exception

I'm not a computer techie but I can usually follow instructions when troubleshooting. But I can't seem to find out how to fix this BSOD.

About three weeks ago I had my first SSE and received the "Technical Information" number of: ***STOP: 0x0000003B (0x000000001D, 0xFFFFF8800000000, 0xFFFFF88003EBD150, 0x000000000000000).

The BSOD's have occured in regular mode and in Safe Mode. There was also a period of two weeks where there were no errors at all. There have been zero hardware changes in the past 6 months. I did upgrade from Vista to W7 and I increased my HDD from 320 to 500GB.

I am using an HP dv5 that I have had for around 3 years. It's a Core Two Duo and I have had it to near capacity recently and the moved a bunch of music, photo's, video's to an external HD.

The most recent software installations was about three months ago. I was using some audio editing software (Adobe Audition 1.5 and then later installed Cubase LE5). Both of these have worked fine but now they both hang up if I'm trying to use one or the other.

Yesterday I was able to use the Adobe program for more than an hour. When I finished my mix I shut it down, only it wouldn't shut down. I used all the tricks (okay, Task Manager, right-click and close) to close it but to no avail. I powered down and then a couple of minutes later I restarted it. Boom... BSOD. About ten minutes ago I attempted to open Cubase. It would not get past the "initiating BAIOS" phase and is doing the same as Audition yesterday by not being able to shut it down.

Now, an additional new change is my battery. As I stated above, the laptop is around 3 years old. Same battery. In my system icon tray there has recently been an "x" over the battery. It will tell me it's full but tells me to consider replacing it. I will do that when I return to the US in about two more weeks. Could this have anything to do with the BSOD?

I have noticed that programs have recently begun taking longer to shut down. I have done a Windows Memory Check and a scannow and all came back okay.

I have run the Dump program and will upload it here. I could not get the Health Check to produce anything for me. It ran and ran but I received nothing from it.

Any help, any guidance, any instruction will be most graciously appreciated. I've got another two weeks to go in Nigeria and I need my laptop for when I'm not at my desk computer.

Cheers all,

Rod

I have checked for the drivers and found most of them, however the first one I was going to enter showed that I already had the most current driver for it (rt64win7); the one with the date you show here is older than what I found.

The next one that I checked already had the most current driver (same date as shown above) as well. Will continue to check the others but so far I haven't been able to make any improvements on the drivers.

The good thing is that I left my laptop on overnight and when I returned to it this morning it not had a BSOD episode...yet.

Went to HP's website and did some Google searching and found most of the drivers but so far none have been newer than what was installed.

So, I ran Auslogics Defrag. It had been running about an hour and a half (very defragmented (20%) due to my moving a lot of data to my external HD about three weeks ago) when I decided to plug my iPhone in to charge. I knew that it could possibly have a negative effect, and it did. Immediate BSOD with the same System error that I've been getting.

I left the phone plugged in, shut down the laptop, then restarted in regular mode. So far have been able to watch my iPhone sync with iTunes and am now running Defrag again.

When I plugged the phone in was there some sort of spike in energy use? Could this go back to something related to my battery being in poor condition?

Just trying to update as things happen. Thanks much.

Completed the defrag (Auslogics) yesterday. Nearly 500 fragmented files. Was able to use Adobe Audition when it finished and when done I shut down the computer. Turned it back on today and a BSOD occured within about two minutes while it was starting up.

A correction to my initial statement about software; I did download and install Google Chrome. Somewhere along the line McAfee was added also. Not sure if that was part of the Google Chrome install or not. I have Norton already so it was not intentional. I have since uninstalled McAfee.

Other recent updates/installations (between September 3 and now; the first BSOD was Sept 25) are:

Quick Time (version 7.70.80.34) Sept 3
iTunes (10.4.1.10) Sept 3
Google Chrome (as mentioned) Sept 4
Mozilla Firefox 6.0.2 (x86 en-US) Sept 14
Malwarebytes 1.51.2.1300 Sept 14
Compatibility Pack for the 2007 Office System Sept 14
Microsoft Office File Validation Add-In Sept 14
Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer 2007 (english) Sept 14
Adobe Flash Player 10 Plugin Sept 27
Mozilla Firefox 7.0 (x86 en-US) Oct 6


I am getting different codes (the #'s in parenthesis) from the BSOD; what relevence, if any, does that have? For instance, the 3rd set of numbers in the past two BSOD's were 0xFFFFF880087C0150 and the next was ....880087AC8150.

New dump files attached. I really do appreciate you taking the time to help me on this.

After I ejected my flash stick to move from my laptop back to my work desktop I clicked the balloon that said it was safe to remove the flash stick from the laptop, and got another BSOD. This is in Safe Mode. The code (3rd number) was different again.

Considerations I am thinking are to uninstall Chrome and iTunes (for the time being....need the Tunes but maybe an older version since the one I have now seems to have issues. Another thing about that version of iTunes is that sometimes when it is opened and I go to minimize it the page actually enlarges and the top part of the page seems to disappear. I knew when it first did that that something was wrong but I just now remembered it. I'll back up my current iTunes library, uninstall and then see if I can find an older version (maybe 2 or 3 versions back) to reinstall.

Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
You may need to run it 2-3 times to "fix" everything.

Then run RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Leave it to run overnight if possible.
