Windows 7: BSOD playing The Witcher 3, error 0x000000f4

BSOD playing The Witcher 3, error 0x000000f4

Hey all,

Been trying to get help about this but I think I've come as far as I can on my own.

I used this post to try and figure out if the problem was driver related (most recent crash). Anyway, other then the last, the crashes from January in my .zip are related to playing The Witcher 3 on Steam. My gut tells me it could be PSU related but I'm also very hungry.

Please let me know if you need any other information, and thanks in advanced for any help you can provide me!

John

Hello lemonjon and welcome to Sevenforums!

Your latest BSOD tells us that you have Driver Verifier enabled, may I ask why? And the failing module, ScpvBus.sys is Scarlet.Crush Productions Scp Dual Shock 3 Virtual Bus Driver.

Also go here and update drivers:

And post back if you get more BSODs.

Cheers! /Boris

Hey Boris, thanks for checking it out. The last crash I was trying to follow the instructions here to check possible driver issues: Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers

That's why Driver Verifier WAS on!

Thanks I'll try the driver updates and see if that works. I appreciate it!

Hi lemonjon,

Welcome to the 7forums

I see besides from 1 0xC9(DRIVER_VERIFIER_IOMANAGER_VIOLATION) only 0xF4 and 0x7A which indicate a failing/faulty hard drive.
Please try running following tests to determine if a faulty/failing hard drive truly is the case.

Hey axe0, thanks for the reply!

I ran the SeaTools diagnostic tests last night short drive self test, short generic and long generic (this one ran all night) all ran and passed. I'll run chkdsk and HDTune tonight when I get home from work.

Once again, I appreciate the help!
