Windows 7: BSOD Event 41, Kernel Power

Hi Anak

You still have some drivers that are seriously outdated: hberger drivers.xlsx.zip I would first concentrate on the ones from the Intel at 2005 to 2008 then the ones in 2009, if you don't need them get rid of them.

Have updated all I can with Intel download utility. Where can I find iirsp from 2005 to get rid of it?

The main reason You can't find it:

Driver iirsp.sys

iirsp.sys
is filename of the driver running on Microsoft Windows operating system. This driver belongs in most cases to product Intel/ICP Raid Storport Driver and is developed by Intel Corp./ICP vortex GmbH company. File version information describes this process as Intel/ICP Raid Storport Driver. Process is loaded from directory C:\Windows\System32\DRIVERS.

This file belongs to the driver category. Drivers are designed to operate in cooperation with system hardware resources and can address the hardware inputs and outputs. An operating system can use drivers for multiple devices : printers, graphics cards, keyboards, pointing devices, memory, hard drives and many others. Drivers can also provide functionality for third-party applications, can be provided as a system drivers designed by Microsoft or be designed by the hardware vendor. Drivers can communicate with the underlying hardware based on settled inputs and outputs.

So, iirsp.sys is a Windows system file that Intel created for the Windows OS, it can be found at several different sites if you look hard enough, but, even with the proper MD5: SHA1: and SHA2: hashes it is dicey at best to try and use them. System files should come already packed into the OS as delivered on disk.

If you don't have a server board, an Intel RAID Controller or a ICP Vortex RAID Controller installed I really don't see the point in having the iirsp file installed. There aren't any dependencies: INF-iirsp (Standard 8 Module Reference), but that's not to say it isn't needed somehow.


Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers and see what your iirsp file says, mine is from 07-13-2009 and is 44KB in size. Also check, C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepositor\iirsp.inf_amd64_neutral_

Are they both from 2005, or is one newer?

There may be a way you can go, but I want to wait until you reply with your findings.

Hi Anak

As you can see, I have removed all drivers older than 2008 (except for secdrv and lmimirr which seem to be the latest version of each) and so far the system is stable

Now if only this solves my Event 41, Kernel Power crashes...

Will report back

secdrv:
Can be malicious, It poses a potential security risk because it grants kernel access to the programs it works with.
If you click on the Troj/Pushu-Gen link here: SystemLookup - Global Search | secdrv Sophos has no results, click here: ThreatExpert Report: Trojan.Pandex, Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Mutant.a, Troj/Pushu-Gen, Mal/Behav-116, and: secdrv.sys Windows process - What is it? to find out more.


lmimirr
:
Seems legitimate, have you or have you ever had LogMeIn installed on your machine? SystemLookup - Global Search | lmimirr


Keep a copy of the Drivers list in case we have to go back and restore some of them, there is a way even if they are obsolete.

Hi Anak and Arc
Thank you so much for all of your help at the end of last year
I gave up, got a new motherboard+CPU and things have been rock solid stable since
Pretty sure it was the ASUS motherboard
Hope you are both doing well

Hi Husaberger,

Your welcome, it's great to hear that you have your problem sorted out, and you explained how. Give it a while and you can come back and mark your thread solved.

Looking back over your thread, it seems obvious now that the problem centered on your motherboard.
  • The situation with the BIOS overclocking by itself.
  • The USB, JMicron, and Marvell Controllers that run in conjunction with the CPU.
  • The daily freezes, but rare BSOD's.
Were you able to RMA those parts?

I don't know 'bout Arc, but the wife and I are doing okay, can't wait till Spring gets here.

May you and yours have a rewarding new year!

Steve

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code...

About that: but this system was booted /NODEBUG Do you have your machine set to debug? Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD


Unless Arc has something I would try the highlighted #2 resolution bullet below.

Resolution

If you are not equipped to debug this problem, you should use some basic troubleshooting techniques.
  • Make sure you have enough disk space.
  • If a driver is identified in the bug check message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates.
  • Try changing video adapters.
  • Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates.
  • Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.

Thank you Anak
1. I have machine set to create small memory dump per tutorial. Is that the correct?
2. As far as you can tell there is no driver causing problems, is that correct?
3. With all the recent news about the government injecting malware into machines... what do you think the chances are that I picked up something that is causing this issue by downloading torrents?
