Related to nvmf6264.sys MCP Networking Function Driver. from NVIDIA Corporation

Ok we can keep doing these crashes one at a time till we finally find the problem. I think a better idea whose time is approaching fast is a clean install. There may be hardware issues but everyone of the previous crashes was from software of some kind.

A clean install will get you going faster.

I'd like to try and troubleshoot this a bit more before going with the clean install.

What would be your next suggestion with the blue screen being related to nvmf6264.sys? I recall seeing the MCP Networking Function during the install process of my nForce driver update. Would uninstalling the network adapter driver software from the device manager install a generic driver after reboot (like with the display adapter/gfx card)? Or would that not really accomplish anything in this situation?

Disregard the last post, I'm going to go ahead and clean install. Hopefully that fixes the issue; I'll post again if it does not.

Smart move. Good luck and let us know if you need help

If this was an absolutely Clean install (just tho OS, no updates, nothing but the OS) and it still BSOD's it probably is hardware.

I would start with Memory.

I went through the instructions from Clean Install Windows 7, let windows take care of its updates and loaded in the drivers from the CD that came with my mobo. Since the BSOD's 99% of the time only occur during games I updated my gfx card driver as well so I could test it with BF3.

I'll run memtest again overnight but I've already done so twice within the last month and no errors have come up.

The dmp files in this and my last post are both from testing for BSOD's in BF3 earlier tonight after the clean install.

Seven passes with memtest and no errors. What should I try next?

Its still a memory exception caused by BF3. Next step is to run Driver verifier to try to trap the actual driver



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.

Ran driver verifier and got this BSOD. I think this was the first time I've seen the BSOD message point specifically to a driver; it looked like an nvidia one, but my computer rebooted too quickly to get a good look at it.
