Windows 7: BSOD playing games and randomly at idle error 0x000000d1 mostly

BSOD playing games and randomly at idle error 0x000000d1 mostly

I built this computer for a friend of mine (the one under my specs) and he's having trouble with BSOD's. I reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Still problems, so I thought the RAM was going bad. We ran memtest86+ and found an error so I replaced the RAM with the one currently in my profile. He ran memtest again and found 0 errors. He is still having BSOD's mostly IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL on ntoskrnl.sys, tcpip.sys, afd,sys, ks, sys, etc. We reinstalled manufacturer drivers from Asrock and installed the latest catalyst from ATI for the HD 5770. We've done some other troubleshooting: CHKDSK found nothing, hard drive SMART wasn't tripped, had no reallocated sectors. I've disabled everything in BIOS that could cause troubles, Cool n quiet, advanced core calibration, etc. I had him run the BSOD posting tool.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated,

MetalSlugXT, try updating the display driver to the latest WHQL.

You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.


During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

Also update the network driver from http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...&GetDown=false.

Also update your wireless USB card's driver. Search for it in http://www.mediatek.com/_en/07_downloads/01_windows.php . In my best guess, it is the cause of most of the crashes.

Let us know the results.

Hey Arc,

Thanks for all the driver suggestions. We were able to update the drivers and everything seems to working now. Thanks for your help, and if something else comes up, I'll be sure to open a new thread. Have a great day.


Best,
