Windows 7: Sony Vaio BSOD Screens and query on checking external drives

Sony Vaio BSOD Screens and query on checking external drives

I had posted this on another thread concerning a blue screen in a Sony Vaio but was advised to remove it and start a new thread which I’m doing here. I have a two year old Sony Vaio 64 bit with Windows 7 Home Premium, Service pack 1. I had no problem with it until I put on Norton 360 when blue screens started generating. I posted on here a week ago and uploaded a zip file and followed the advice given after analysis.
I got onto Norton Community as advised and uploaded the contents of the BSOD screen which only occurred when I started the computer. They gave me a link to a Microsoft Knowledge base article at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/979444 which in turn led me to the following hotfix :- http://hotfixv4.microsoft.com/Windows%207/WindowsServer%202008%20R2/sp1/Fix302249/7600/free/404162_intl_x64_zip.exe
I downloaded this Hotfix and got no BSOD for a week when I got another one. The contents of the BSOD screen I got after one week were as follows:-
A problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
APC_INDEX_MISMATCH

If problems continue disable or remove any newly installed hardwear or softwear. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer press F8 to select advanced start-up options and then select safe mode.

Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.

After this happened I removed Norton finally using the Norton Remover tool and I installed Microsoft Security Essentials, did a virus check which was clear but when I shut down the computer I got another BSOD screen the contents of which were as follows:-
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
If problems continue disable or remove any newly installed hardwear or softwear. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer press F8 to select advanced start-up options and then select safe mode.

This BSOD kept hanging so I had to turn off the computer eventually without generating a dump file.
I then did a hard drive check on my ‘c’ drive which has no errors. I am trying to do one now on my external ‘e’ and ‘d’ drives but when I typed in “chkdsk e” into the command prompt, it said ‘Access Denied as you do not have sufficient privileges, you have to invoke this utility running in elevated mode’. Could someone please tell me how I get around this so that I can check these external drives? I’m not a computer expert and the computer was in a repair shop for 3 days and they could not fix it other than to tell me to remove Norton which hasn’t worked.
I should also mention that while I was downloading the file from Windows Seven Forums to upload a zip file for a bug check, I got another BSOD file which said:-
The IO Manager has detected a violation by a driver that is being verified.

+++HIDCLASS.SYS – Address FFFFF880031E8710 base at FFFFF880031E6000, datestamp 4ce7a665
From some of the BSOD screens I’ve been getting, I’m wondering if it could be a driver problem. I checked my device drivers on windows and they are updated automatically and are apparently in working order.

I was advised to a system repaid scan which I did and the contents are as follows:-
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
C:\Windows\system32>sfc /scannow
Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.
Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

I have uploaded an updated dump file for analysis.

Code:
VERIFIER_ENABLED_VISTA_MINIDUMP
You need to disable driver verifier as it may create false BSOD-s.

Please disable verifier according to its tutorial below and let us know if you are still getting BSOD-s.

Ok, I will try doing that. Can I ask why does the code for the bug check show VERIFIER_ENABLED_VISTA_MINIDUMP when I have Windows 7 installed not Vista?
Also I want to check my external drives 'e' and 'd' but when I tried this by typing 'chkdsk e' into the command prompt the message it sent back was 'Access denied as you do not have sufficient privileges. You have to invoke this utility running in elevated mode? Any idea how I would go about this?

I'm not sure why it showed Vista instead of Windows 7 cause even I'm using the 7 version of the debugger tool.

It might be cause you're windows 7 installation may be corrupt but I'm calling for more help.

CHKDSK commands always require elevated privileges - because it effectively takes the disk out of use, and can break running programs.
run the command from an elevated command prompt -
To open an Elevated Command Prompt Window (the ECP window), click on Start, All Programs, Accessories – then right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt.

Hi,
I followed your instructions to run the elevated command prompt but I still can't open the 'e' drive.
I have posted the result here. Does the drive need to be use in order to check it - should I attach a USB stick? :-

Please open diskmgmt.msc
take a screenshot of it and post the shot.

I tried copying and pasting the screenshot of diskmgmt.msc here but it didn't seem to paste so I have attached it as a file. I think I have narrowed down the problem to an 'e' disk. I wanted to check the external drives before dis-enabling the driver verifier. I have a Sony mp3 player - I attached it and as soon as I disconnected it I got another BSOD that I have uploaded as a zipped file

There is no E: drive on the system.
Where are you finding this drive letter?
The only time you are likely to see such a letter (unless external drives are plugged in - which they weren't when you did the diskmgmt screenshot) is when in the Repair Environment - when it may be the main Windows partition.

If you only see this letter when external drives are plugged in, then please lug them back in and post a new diskmgmt screenshot.

Why haven't you still disabled Driver Verifier?
