Windows 7: BSOD 0x109 ntsokrnl Win 7 x64 at random times

BSOD 0x109 ntsokrnl Win 7 x64 at random times

For the past few months I have been getting this exact bug check code. I reinstalled Windows 7 last month hoping it would remedy the problem, but it hasn't.

It happens at random times, sometimes when gaming, and sometimes I will be laying in bed going to sleep and I will hear the BIOS post across the room.

I have already run MemTest on my ram for 12 hours/8 passes with no errors.

I am not sure what to do, nor how to delve deeper into the minidumps other than look at them with WinDbg. Is there anything anyone here can glean from them and help with my problem?

I'm thinking it's a driver or program despite reinstalling Windows and having the problem persist. Maybe that's just wishful thinking.

All minidumps since the reinstall of Windows are located here:

If any other information is needed, let me know. I will have this bookmarked and will check it diligently.

Before we can even begin to find the underlying cause (and it may be the problem in itself) you need to update your asacpi.sys. Yours is from 2005

Asacpi.sys

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

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 before).

I have uploaded the dumps since then into a folder called "After asacpi.sys" in the original link. I seem to be Blue Screening more often now.

Asacpi.sys is now 2009 good job.

The 4 in that folder were the same. A driver is corrupting a critical process.


If you havent. run driver verifier to find which one.



These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (Cx05) probably a driver.
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.


* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have a Raid update its Driver.





Driver Verifier

Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition.
Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is.
But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver.
Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows.
If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff 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"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like.
From my limited experimentation it makes the BSOD's come faster.
- 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.

If you are using win 8 add these

- Concurrency Stress Test
- DDI compliance checking

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.
Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.


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.

Thanks to JGriff2 & Usasma.

I couldn't boot my system at all. As soon as the animated Windows logo went away when booting, it immediately blue screened too fast to see what it said and restarted the PC. I booted into safe mode fine and deleted the settings on the driver verifier.

There are no dump files for this event.
