Windows 7: Random BSODs, only thing in common - from browser

Random BSODs, only thing in common - from browser

Hello everyone!

I've been having a problem recently with BSOD. I could not determine the pattern, only thing in common - they seem to happen when I'm using a browser, most likely from pages with Adobe Flash (tho it's just a guess). Tried switching from Chrome to FF, didn't help. Neither did turning of the Flash Player hardware acceleration.

Among other things tried - Memtest overnight (OK), Seatools from boot up (OK). GPU driver wiped with DDU from safe mode, installed fresh, didn't help.

I ran driver verifier and BSODed on login, but my knowledge on the subject is insufficient to determine the cause.

I'd assume it's a hardware fault since it's quite old, if there was not for this particular 'always from the browser' moment, and the system being quite stable otherwise.

P.S. Hopefully I'm posting this according to the instructions

One thing that might help to know is exactly how old the hardware is. Also have you tried to update to the latest version of flash? It sounds to me like something possibly corrupted some files somewhere. Also I just looked at some of the files that you uploaded and i noticed that it appears windows was logging plenty of memory dump errors; probably most likely from the hardware itself as you said it probably was. Especially if its really old. If a device is really old; and you have the latest operating system; chances are it may not be 100% compatible with windows 7.

Welcome to SF bsodeath .

The main culprit is the nVidia driver / hardware, but updating the Ethernet driver won't hurt as well.

Code:
lmvm rt64win7
Browse full module list
start             end                 module name
fffff880`03f54000 fffff880`03f86000   Rt64win7   (deferred)             
    Image path: \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\Rt64win7.sys
    Image name: Rt64win7.sys

Please follow this detailed quote and roll-back the driver to a known stable release.

Unfortunately your motherboard doesn't have onboard graphics, do you have a different
GPU you can test with?

Thank you all for the replies, it is highly appreciated


@matts6887 I'm not really sure how old is the hardware but I'd say over 3-4 years old. I updated to the latest Flash version just in case.


@YoYo155 I followed your instructions, installed network adapter driver and did the clean nVidia driver install. Only problem is in between uninstalling the old driver and installing 314.22 Windows installed it's own driver (WDDM 1.1 if I'm not mistaking). Hopefully it won't influence the outcome negatively.

Once again, than you all for helping!

if you have updated to the latest version of flash and you are still having the issue; i would agree with yoyo155 Even if windows inst alled the old driver; you should still be able to update it again after it installs the old driver.

Well, I'm back. After few days without problems, my PC crashed again, and again every crash was from a browser.

Right now I don't have an access to another GPU, it'll take me some time to replace it and see if it solves my problem.

Just in case, latest "Grab all" attached.

Once again, thank you all

Hi again , sorry for the late reply.

Again the main issue appears to be with nVidia, but other bugchecks indicate a possible
DISK corruption / infection.

Please scan for possible infection and file corruption.

warning   Warning
The Following Method Should NOT Be Performed On An SSD!


Testing the HDD:

  1. Perform a Disk Check | Disk Check- Scroll down to OPTION TWO of the tutorial and use the /R switch in the CHKDSK command | chkdsk C: /R.
  2. Then Post the Disk Check results following | This Tutorial.
  3. Once back in Windows, download Crystal Disk Info and post a screenshot (multiple shots if you have more than one drive).
  4. Download SeaTools for DOS if you don't want to use a CD to test the HDD you can use YUMI Multiboot USB Creator to create a bootable USB (instructions are found at the bottom of both pages).
  5. If SeaTools for DOS is unable to recognize your HDD:
  6. Visit HDDdiag and follow the instructions | Or follow the instructions below.
If SeaTools For DOS does not recognize the drive;
Boot into the BIOS using the *Fx key.
Look for an entry called SATA Mode (or something similar), it should be set to IDE / AHCI.
It's probably set to AHCI which is why SeaTools doesn't recognize them in the DOS environment.
Set it to IDE then save and exit usually by pressing the F10 key.
Now boot into SeaTools and it should detect the drives.
Start the Long Test and let it run.
Upon completion don't try to boot into Windows as it will only result in a BSOD, go back into the BIOS
and change the SATA setting back to what it was in the first place.

I ran [most of] the tests. I'll attach the screenshots of sfc/scannow and Crystal Disk, as well as the results of anti-virus runs and 'chkdsk'.

Kaspersky found some kind of ad-aware among the Format factory files, and deleted them. In the meantime there was another BSoD, yet again - from the browser, but this one was something new: "DRIVER_OVERRAN_STACK_BUFFER"

Did another "Grab all"

Will post the Seatools test results ASAP.

Once again, thank you all for help!
