I would remove WinDDK and the old drivers which are still loading even in the newest crash

All the crashes involve the old drivers BTW.

Code:

Alpham264.sys    3/20/2007 4:51:03 AM            fffff880`06b12000    fffff880`06b17500    0x00005500    0x45ffae87                    
Alpham164.sys    7/23/2007 2:57:03 AM            fffff880`06b05000    fffff880`06b11f00    0x0000cf00    0x46a45f4f                    
Mo3Fltr.sys    9/17/2008 9:50:37 PM            fffff880`0a093000    fffff880`0a096200    0x00003200    0x48d1c1fd
Alpham164.sys and Alpham264.sys are drivers that are associated with a gaming keyboard. The manufacturers website (SteelSeries) states that the lastest drivers were posted 2011-02-22 and I installed these drivers yesterday. Should I uninstall them anyway?

Mo3Fltr.sys is a driver associated with a gaming mouse that I no longer own. I even uninstalled the software from my PC. I have no idea where these drivers are hiding. this is very frustrating to say the least.

I have no idea what WinDDK is or where to find it on my system. I tried searching for it using windows search tool. I don't even see WinDDK on the Driver Reference Table.
With all these mysterious drivers it might be faster (and easier) to do a clen install. Do you have the win 7 dvd?
I sure do but I also have 47 games alone installed on my PC as well as programs and I am so not in the mood to have to reinstall all of that unless I absolutely have to. there has to be a way around finding a couple of drivers. I would hate to have to reinstall just because of a issue cause by a few drivers.

What are the chances of this blue screen problem going away if I were to reinstall windows? If there is a slim chance then reinstalling would be futile.

Question: Could I just reimage windows if the reinstall doesn't take care of the blue screen issue?
I made a image of windows plus a repair disc as well.

If it is software and you dont re-install the same additional apps you have now it should help.


I am always in favor of clean installs.

If I do in fact re-install windows and my PC continues to blue screen, can I restore my back-up? I don't have a lot experience with backing up and restoring so this is a serious question. If it doesn't work then I want to be confident that I can in fact restore my PC back to what it is now.

I have 4 drives in my PC. I have one that I install only games on and one that I install only programs on and I have a SSD that is for my OS only. The final drive is for media.
Should I format the drives that I use for my games and programs when I re-install windows?

I'm very frustrated that I can't find and delete theses drivers on my PC. I hate the idea of having to re-install 47 games...

Sorry, a bit confused here. If y ou have a backup you can restore from it more than once, but if there is a problem with it the first time there will be on subsequent ones. The SSD drive with the OS is the one you are interested in formatting, but you will still need to re-install the games to register them with your registry.

Is that what you are asking?

The only drive that needs formatting is the OS partition. Look in the tutorial section here on SF for lots of information tutorials

Well since I have to re-install all my games and programs then I may as well format the drives that I will be installing them on. Unless merely deleting the games and programs is sufficient.
Do I really need to format the SSD? Can't I just re-install a clean installation of windows over the previous version?

Still having the BSOD issue. This is the most annoying thing ever. I have tried everything I can think of besides formatting and reinstalling windows. I haven't done so yet because I have a feeling that reinstalling windows will still not fix the issue. Can anyone out there shed some light on my situation? Here is the latest dump.
