There you go.

Enable Driver Verifier. Enabling this should hopefully crash your system and then point to the faulty driver that is causing problems. However before you do, it is advised that you create a system restore point and backup first.

Ok well all was going good but before i ran driver verifier i did update some drivers for motherboard from official MB site thinking it might be that then i enabled driver verifier and restarted. while i was on second life and installing sims 3 i got the BSOD and this time it was a different file name but still linked to a same name to a previous BSOD crash. here is what it said from this BSOD event viewer i downloaded before.

Caused by Driver: win32k.sys
Caused by Address: win32k.sys+101925

Crash Address: ntoskrnl.exe+7cc40 this is the same file that was related to different BSOD in others, but here is the uploaded DMP for u guys to read from app that is said to use for uploading it.

Run an sfc/scannow command in an elevated command prompt. If errors are found, run it twice more with each scan followed by a reboot.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Make sure all Windows updates are installed including the latest Service Pack.

By the way, what happened to Memtest86+? Did you get 6-8 passes?

Ran SFC /SCANNOW and it said it found no intergrity errors. The mem test i let run for 5 passes but when i go to bed here in a min ima start it up again cuz just to get to 5 passes it took like almost 6hrs and ill be up before 6hrs so gonna do that here in few mins. i wanna wait to see if u have any other suggestions to what is causing these BSODs, they just seem random and the file errors in the DMP dont make sense to me to what its related too.

If im asleep when u post other suggestions ill post back in the morning when im up and run them, i still have driver verifier running also by the way, ty again so far, hope to track this down soon :/

Oh and all windows updates are installed except the language packs of course.

ok well mem test ran all night and was on pass 7 and nothing so what would be the next step in seeing whats causing the bsod? driver verify is still on too also by the way


Has anyone looked at my dump files cuz its now showing none have been downloading and i thought thats what gives the most useful info to whats causing a BSOD, ive done all the steps so far suggested and curious what the dmp files and all point too cuz idk how to interpet those.

That's where I'm getting this information from. Different readings from dump files call for different fixes such as Memtest86+ and the sfc/scan I suggested.

You will need to update the following drivers:

Quote:
mcdbus.sys Tue Feb 24 21:34:07 2009
spldr.sys Tue May 12 02:56:27 2009
As well as all other drivers including graphics, chipset, audio etc.

Thanks for the reply, um i cant update none of those cuz i updated them already before i sent the latest dmp, or is that from the health reading thing? Cuz the ones i know for sure were updated from start is chipset, graphics, and audio are all up to date from manufactors site, audio was the last one i did so now that worries me its the MB thats going wonky on me eh?

And if the drivers mcdbus.sys and spldr.sys arent related to those drivers u said, how do i find out what there related to to update them?

EDIT: k i found out that mcdbus.sys is for magicdisk program which i uninstalled cuz i googled before and found out that causing a BSOD but even after uninstall i still got a BSOD.

Hi.


Do you overclock anything? if yes stop and set everything back to defaults settings.


Did you had make any changes with RivaTuner? If yes set everything back to default setting then remove riva from your system.


Download and install the Driver Sweeper.

Download the most recent software\driver for your
NVIDIA .

Uninstall
nvidia software\driver,restart in safe mode,run driver sweeper,choose only NVIDIA-Display and clean,restart in normal mode.

Install the new nvidia software\driver,restart.

Update
DirectX .


Run
the
nvidia-video-card-test post here the results.
