Windows 7: BSOD at random, usually upon closing laptop

30 Jun 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

That's strange. I took a look at the driver again; it is indeed 5.0.9. It must have reverted after I used the HP Update tool. It's strange that I can't trust HP's own software to provide the right driver.

I've installed DriverMax and used it to find the latest version of the Ralink driver (as well as a bunch of other ones). According to DriverMax, the latest supported update is 5.0.5. This is different than the version you suggested, but this seems to have stopped the bluescreens from occurring again. Is it possible that the version you suggested ( was just what came with the computer? All of the drivers in your link are from 2011.

I'm not sure why the more recent BSOD's don't come up in the file. Perhaps the computer didn't bluescreen those times but improperly shut down in some other way? In any case, I'll run the utility one more time and attach the results. Maybe that will do it

Please stop using drivermax to update your drivers !!!! You are calling for more trouble than getting the latest

You may use it for backing up the drivers but never to update it. !!

There is a reason why each manufacturer has their own set of drivers.. they update them based on the feedback they get from customers and internal testing.. even if the version is dated in 2011 !!..

There are certain drivers like Graphics card that can be update from the respective chip manufacturer (Nvidia or ATI) even if they come from different partners.

If what i say is not enough.... look at the dump file date 30/6/2013.... look at the drivers marked in red

Got it. I'll uninstall drivermax. Will installing the Ralink driver version solve this once and for all then? Was this what caused all of the BSOD's?

I'm still getting the BSOD. I've confirmed that my Ralink driver is indeed version

This time, from what I can gather, using windows debugger, the crash points to a file called "RT2860." The only information I can find on this is that it refers to a wireless adaptor by Ralink... that I don't have. Is this anything close to right? What should I do about it?

I've attached the latest SF log:

Upon further snooping in the device manager, it seems that RT2860.sys is the location of the version driver for the Ralink adapter. Does this mean that my newly-installed driver doesn't work either?

The RT2860 is your Ralink Wifi driver.... Its correct.

All right next in line is the Firewall.. Please uninstall Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 and use MSE and the windows firewall for most of your needs. The NDIS drivers of these are known to cause issue

Then uninstall Demon tool Pro..

Restart your system and let me know when it crashes

Alright, I'll get on that. I'll mark this as solved for now and create a new thread if more problems arise
