Windows 7: BSOD Randomly happens, flash for a second, and then turns off PC.

BSOD Randomly happens, flash for a second, and then turns off PC.

I've had a shuttle sk22g2 v2 system that I leave on and sometimes find turned off and occasionally see a BSOD when using. The BSOD happens randomly, flashes on the screen for about 1 sec, and then turns off the PC. I've had this issue since doing a fresh install of Windows 7 ultimate 64 from window XP 64.

I don't know if it is related, but I also had an issue where my on board NIC would stop working. I tried fixes from installing different driver versions, restarting services, and restarting the NIC. The only thing that would recover would its functionality be restarting windows. I added a NIC card and that has allowed me to keep network access.

Thanks in advance for your help,
John

Welcome aboard.

► First of all, your BIOS is very old, if possible, update it.
Code:
BIOS Version/Date    Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG, 11/3/2006
Update the following drivers:
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I updated my LOM to the latest drivers from the VIA site.
New LOM driver version is 1.15.0.1.

The current video driver for the ATI Radeon HD 4600 on the system is from 4/5/2012. ATI version 12.4 driver version 8.961.0.0. There is a later driver, but it is a beta version which was released 6/28/2012. 12.7 Beta. I prefer not to use a beta driver, but if you think this is the issue I will try it.

The bios needs to be flashed from DOS boot disk. I have a few of these, but they are at work, so I will try this tomorrow.

Does it make sense to run the driver verifier before upgrading the BIOS or wait until it is updated?

The BIOS update is not mandatory, but desirable. You may do it any time.

But Driver verifier is must.

Drop updating ATI, enable driver verifier and let us know the result.

After turining on verify and rebooting I got a blue screen. The blue screen came pretty quickly (it seemed like 1 -2 minutes of logging in). This happened 2 more times before I went to safe mode to disable verify.

I'm attaching the 3 dump files. They were created about 4 minutes apart, so that give you an idea of how often I was getting them.

I removed the program that was causing the issue and restarted driver verifier last night. I have a new dmp file from last night.

So, this BSOD happend yesterday after opening my vmware view client while running verifier. It happened again today when I opened the vmware client and runinng the verifier. I wasn't sure that it was this application at first, as I use it frequently to do remote work and have never had a blue screen while using it. How should I proceed, I need this application for work?
