Windows 7: The following system start driver(s) failed to load: mbmiodrvr

The following system start driver(s) failed to load: mbmiodrvr

Hi all.

My pc has been hanging randomly and I have to use the power button to shut down/restart.

I've checked in events and there is this error which seems to be causing the problem as the time matches with the hang time.

I posted another topic with another bsod issue in the bsod section, and I was told to run some tests.

A day or so ago, I tried and changed Driver Verifier settings as were instructed in one of the threads here which also mentions that it is an iffy thing to do.

Anyway, I lost windows and could not start again, luckily I had a backup made, and after formatting my HD, loaded it on to it. This error seems to be a driver issue (Screenshot).

Should I go down the Driver Verifier route again ? To be honest I don't want to. If I lose windows again it would be very frustrating.

I've run the following tests so far here

I have no driver issues showing up in Device Manager, so that looks ok.

Please advise. Thank you.

I looked around and found a reference to Mother Board Monitor which at least sounds like it might be the culprit.

Do you have that application installed, or some other temperature / fan speed monitoring sw?

Alex Van Kaam, the author of Mother Board Monitor, stopped development in 2004 citing his frustration getting technical information from mfgrs.

Anyway, if you have Mother Board Monitor installed, remove it. If you have other monitoring sw, post what you have and someone might know more about that sw (MBM source used?)

If you haven't tried a Clean Boot, here's a tutorial you can follow:

Thanks Slartybart.

Ok, wow I didn't know I had it installed but yes 'Motherboard monitor 5' is showing up in programs. I guess it's been sitting there very long & I maybe only hardly ever used it. I just did a Total Uninstall of it.

Other than that I have SpeedFan and HWiNFO64 installed both of which monitor temp/speed.

I think I'll run and test for a while after removing and will get back and report.

Thanks again.

I think speed fan and HWinfo are stable applications. I have used them without issue.

I hope that MBM was causing the issue and removing it solves it. If not, you know members on sevenforums will try to help

If you're machine is running well please do post an update and mark this thread as solved
if you think it worthy of thier effort, tip the scales on posts by members who provided assistance on this and your other thread
