Windows 7: Random BSOD's seeming to point to netio.sys

Random BSOD's seeming to point to netio.sys

I'm having random BSOD's on my wife's new Compaq CQ5210F with Windows 7 64-bit. Almost all dump files seem to point to netio.sys
There seems to be no particular pattern to the crashes...5 one day, none for a week, etc., not tied to any particular activity.
I've tested the memory overnight using recommended tools and the memory is fine. I've checked HP's site for updated networking drivers as the dumpfile seems to suggest a networking issue, but there are none newer than what it shipped with.
Thanks for your help!
Zipped minidump files attached.

Hey and welcome

Well it seems like you have two distinct types. Power State, and Kernal Mode Trap.
Power state is usually device like a drive, or usb device. Kernal mode trap is usually a driver.

Since you have tested the memory, and no signs of networking issues are epressed in the dmps You are going to have to start looking at them.
Start with a chkdsk/f for the HD
you can go here for more info. http://www.carrona.org/hddiag.html

let us know the results

UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP (7f)
This means a trap occurred in kernel mode, and it's a trap of a kind
that the kernel isn't allowed to have/catch (bound trap) or that
is always instant death (double fault).  The first number in the
bugcheck params is the number of the trap (8 = double fault, etc)
Consult an Intel x86 family manual to learn more about what these
traps are. Here is a *portion* of those codes:
If kv shows a taskGate
        use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv.
Else if kv shows a trapframe
        use .trap on that value
Else
        .trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken
        (on x86, this will be the ebp that goes with the procedure KiTrap)
Endif
kb will then show the corrected stack.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000008, EXCEPTION_DOUBLE_FAULT
Arg2: 000000008005f031

Thanks again for looking at the crash files!

I ran Hitachi's disk diagnostics (advanced scan) and everything, as expected, came back clean.

If this is pointing to a driver problem, are there any clues from the dump files as to what driver(s) might be the culprit?

The dump files appear to point to networking (NETIO.SYS) - so I'd suspect either your networking drivers, or problems with your networking device(s). Several of the dumps point to nvmf6264.sys (dated Thu Jul 30 19:48:18 2009) - a component of your nVidia nForce networking drivers.

The point here is to replace the drivers. That's because we suspect the currently installed drivers to be corrupted. So first you uninstall them (to hopefully remove the corruption), then install a fresh copy of the latest available drivers.

Please download the latest version of the nVidia nForce drivers from here: NVIDIA DRIVERS 15.49 WHQL
Then uninstall the current nForce drivers from your system.
You'll notice that the drivers that you downloaded are Vista drivers - so please install them using this procedure:
Quote:
Compatibilty Mode Driver Installation:
1 - Download the latest driver from the manufacturer's website.
2 - Uninstall the current drivers using the Control Panel...Programs and features...Uninstall a program applet. Then verify that the driver/device has been removed in Device Manager
3 - Right click on freshly downloaded driver installation file and select "Properties"
4 - Select the Compatibility tab - and do the following:
- Click on the "Change settings for all users" button
- Click on the box to select "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and then select Windows Vista Service Pack 1
- Click on the box to select "Run as administrator"
- Click on OK to exit all the dialogs
5 - Right click on the driver installation file and select "Run as administrator"
6 - Let it install and see if that stops the BSOD's.
Also, please update this driver: USBAVCap.sys Thu May 10 03:33:49 2007
It's a component of your AVerMedia USB Video Capture Driver (http://www.avermedia.com/avertv/Support/Download.aspx?Type=Software)

Here's a summary of the BSOD's:

USASMA, thanks so much for analyzing my BSoD problem!

I've uninstalled and replaced the nvidia drivers as well as updated the Avermedia drivers as you recommended. So far, so good, (no BSoD's yet), but with the randomness of the crashes, it will be several days before I can say for sure that the problem is solved.

I will post back here in several days if everything is stable. Thanks again!

Problem fixed!

Replacing the nVidia drivers seemed to do the trick. Updating the Avermedia drivers caused additional problems. Going back to the older Avermedia drivers resolved the new problems.

I even ran verifier for 3 days on the new drivers and was not able to cause any crashes.

Thanks again for diagnosing the problem. You guys are great!

I have been having this problem since i upgraded my dell studio 1737 from vista. I downloaded the Windows debugger pack & followed the techrepublic.com dojo videos instructions of how to use it & all of my bsod's pointed to the netio.sys file. I went out on a limb & searched the hard disk for the file & moved to recycle bin in frustration & so far so good. I've went to the microsoft site & looked for hot fixes w/ no avail the did windows update. Fingers crossed...I'll report if the symptoms reoccur.

You need to start your own thread, and we need the actual DMP file created during the crash. use these to find it. http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...d-problem.html
