Windows 7: BSOD Crash with desktop artifacts

BSOD Crash with desktop artifacts

I'm almost sure it's the Nvidia driver. For some reason this friend's Acer attracts the 9200 driver from WUD when it only has Nvidia 8200. So in the past I've just rolled back to 8200, but it creeps back in on Updates unnoticed by owner.

Can someone confirm this and make any other suggestions needed. Thanks !

Hi Greg, the crash dump included in the zip indicates to wusb54gscv2.ntx86,sys, Compact Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with SpeedBooster Service (c:\windows\system32\drivers\wusb54gscv2_x86.sys).
Code:
BugCheck 7C, {14, 2, 0, 0}

The version of display driver installed is a known bad one. For GeForce 9200 (or even for 8200), it is better to use NVIDIA DRIVERS 314.22WHQL. But before installing this one, better you sweep the leftovers of the earlier one. That one is very problematic.

This is a problem too, Archie. Windows Updates keeps delivering Nvidia 9200 driver even though the Aspire x1300 desktop has 8200. I was able to stabilize it previously from BSOD's by installing the 8200 WDDM driver.

Linksys only shows v.1 and v.3 drivers for that model. It says v.2 on it. I'll try v.3. I also have a newer N USB adapter to try.

Changing back to 8200 WDDM v 1.1 driver 8.15.11.8593 there are strange artifacts on desktop including badly rendered icons which won't delete or drag. I have the same thing on my desktop after recent Updates. Have you heard anything?

Greg, the display driver that is installed here is 311.06 WHQL, released during last February.
Code:

This one, and its previous one are the worst ever display drivers. Almost everybody using it had problems with these two. These two kept me very busy those days They caused serious issues including stack overflow.

But 314.22 is the last most stable release. It never fails by itself only. If there is display crash despite of using 314.22, you may be sure that the issue is with the GPU.

About the latest version, I faced problems myself. So switched back to 314.22. The users report issues with the latest one, I suggest them to do the same

There is a newer Display driver queued in optional Updates: nVidia - Graphics Adapter WDDM1.1, Graphics Adapter WDDM1.2, Graphics Adapter WDDM1.3, Other hardware - NVIDIA GeForce 9200

What's confusing is Windows Update has only ever pushed through Nvidia 9200 for two Aspire x1300's here that show in specs to have Nvidia 8200. Should this be happening? There are BSOD's on both of them with the 9200 driver from Feb, so should we try the latest above even though it's labeled for 9200 and not 8200?

But the latest 8200 driver archived in Dev Mgr is from 2009 so maybe it's intended to use 9200 drivers for this Nvidia 8200 GPU?

Well, that is something I have never experienced. From the uploaded data, all I see that it is GeForce 9200.

DxDiag says ....
Code:
---------------
Display Devices
---------------
          Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 9200  
       Manufacturer: NVIDIA
          Chip type: GeForce 9200
           DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC
         Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_084B&SUBSYS_01531025&REV_A2
MSINFO32.nfo says ....
Code:
Name    NVIDIA GeForce 9200
PNP Device ID    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_084B&SUBSYS_01531025&REV_A2\4&E1B5C44&0&0058
Adapter Type    GeForce 9200, NVIDIA compatible
Adapter Description    NVIDIA GeForce 9200
Adapter RAM    256.00 MB (268,435,456 bytes)
If it is actually a 8200, that that is a strange and unforeseen situation

Whatever, I think you may opt to not update this particular driver via windows update and use the recommended one from the nvidia's site. If still the artifacts are there, stress test the GPU?

The newer v.3 Linksys adapter driver won't install for v.2 so it is stuck with the old driver. What confidence do you have that this driver caused the BSOD's and not the 9200 display driver that had snuck in somehow?

Installing the newer 10/31 Updates 9200 driver now to try it.

Thanks.

That Windows Update 9200 driver from 10/31 seems to stabliize it.

The artifact seems connected to his slideshow gadget. He has also had his Weather gadget go buggy, but in the same way mine has after the latest Windows Updates - so it may not be related to the crash but just a buggy Update.

Here is how both of our Weather gadgets is rendering now:

The BSOD was a proper combination of network and display drivers .... both of them were failing there. In that situation you need to see the situation without that weather gadget. May be it is that thing which is causing both the drivers fail there.

OK, stable now but if it crashes again will disable Weather gadget. (Edit: Weather gadget issue appears to be related to IE11 and is resolved here: IE11 Appears not to support gadgets. What are the alternatives ? - Page 2 - Windows 7 Help Forums )

Thanks Archie. It's amazing to watch you work. You are truly one of the best at this.
