Windows 7: BSOD Bug Check String keeps changing

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate: x64 (SP1)
 
 

Hello Andreas, good to see you.

Notable driver(s)

Code:
AsIO.sys Tue Aug 24 03:53:02 2010 (4C7325FE)
Code:
0: kd> lmvm AsIO
start             end                 module name
fffff880`02fc2000 fffff880`02fc8000   AsIO       (deferred)             
    Image path: AsIO.sys
    Image name: AsIO.sys
    Timestamp:        Tue Aug 24 03:53:02 2010 (4C7325FE)
    CheckSum:         0000C2D9

    Translations:     0000.04b0 0000.04e4 0409.04b0 0409.04e4
ASUS Probe Utility can generate BSODs on some systems.

Code:
sptd.sys Sat Mar 3 17:45:52 2012 (4F524AC0)
Sptd.sys is still there. Did the tool give you any errors? Let's safely remove the Driver.

Safely Remove Drivers:
To remove this safely, please do the following:
- ensure that you have a bootable DVD to use to get into Startup Repair (the Win8 installation DVD will do). If you don't have one, then use this procedure to create a System Repair disk: System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8
- set a System Restore point (to use with the System Repair disk if you can't get back into Windows).

- download this free program: Autoruns for Windows Use it to disable any entries that has the name, Sptd, or in general Daemon Tools (by removing the checkmark in the far left column)
- check for any services related to this driver and/or program (use services.msc) and disable them
- check in Device Manager (use devmgmt.msc) for any devices related to this driver and/or program. Make sure to enable the viewing of hidden devices. Uninstall any that you find. DO NOT rescan or reboot yet!
- search your system for the sptd.sys driver and rename it to sptd.BAD

Then reboot and see if it's removed.

Best Regards,
Frederik.

Ok, I managed to remove the driver, it doesn't appear in my device manager anymore and I renamed the file extension to BAD.
I'm not sure if the asus probe is causing problems, because I was getting BSOD's before I installed it, and the frequency of my BSOD's hasn't increased since then.
If I remove it, must I remove the driver the same way that I removed SPTD.sys?

Thanks for the help;
Andreas

As long as you remember to uninstall it first, and if there's no uninstallers available.

Ok cool thanks; Right, I uninstalled the asus probe and the Asus AI tool as well. I still have verifier running and so far no BSOD. I've got speccy to moniter my system, and sptd.sys is definitely gone.

I'm going to leave my pc on over night to see how things go. I just have one question that I've always wondered: is it better to sleep my PC or shut down everyday? Does it make a difference?

Thanks for all the effort Frederik.

Andreas

Ah, I wouldn't let the computer sleep for something like 8-9 hours indeed. Also shut it down over-night.

You're welcome.

Best Regards,

Hi Frederik;
My PC just crashed, I switched it on and had just started media player when it crashed. Speccy showed my temp up to 46 degrees C, and it was driver verifier that caused the bsod.

I've attached the latest dumpfile.

Hello Andreas.

I'm quite embarrassed about this one, a few days ago I recommended you to use MagicISO instead of Daemon Tools. Now Magic-ISO is given signs.

Uninstall it!

Code:
Unable to load image mcdbus.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for mcdbus.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for mcdbus.sys
Probably caused by : mcdbus.sys ( mcdbus+36823 )
I'm sorry,
Frederik.

Hi Frederik;
Not a problem, I've uninstalled MagicISO, I hope this solves the problem.

Hi Fredrik;
I turned off driver verifier because I've been working on a project recently, but this morning I got a bsod before windows could load. I switched on the pc and as soon as the windows started to load it crashed. IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL was the problem.

I obviously and unfortunately don't have a dump file for this most recent crash, but have you got any ideas? How does ntoskrnl fit in to the system? I see it pops up in most of the recent dump files, but I see it's a core component and I'm not sure I want to fiddle with it.

Regards;
Andreas

Hello Andreas

The BSOD will always crash on the kernel. If the crash dump can't determine what has crashed the kernel, it'll blame the kernel (ntoskrnl.exe). Boot to Safe Mode, how does your computer act?

Frederik.
