Windows 7: Blue screen/memory dump

Blue screen/memory dump

Hi,
I have recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and I am having the same problem over and over. It started about 24 hours after initial installation. I closed my laptop, which was set to sleep and obtain a password on opening. When I did open it some odd hours later I got a blue screen with a fair amount of writing that I didn't have to read all of...but the top title said "IRQL not less or equal" then there was some random 0's and numbers then a memory dump at the bottom before the laptop rebooted. Upon reboot it gave me some info which I shall post shortly. I have tried system restores, manually installing windows updates one at a time, closing the laptop, opening the laptop, etc, i even took the obtain password off so that when it was opened it would wake up straight into windows. This seemed to work for a while, I then changed my update settings to asking me before installing anything and the next thing I know it's installing things all by itself, and this happened several times.
So, last night, no problems with the blue screen. Switched on this morning, shut the laptop, opened it.....blue screen with the same info. When I finally booted into Windows I opened the info on the problems and this was what it said.....

Now I attempted to look for the second file mentioned, i clicked C drive, clicked Users, clicked Lindz....and then could not see "AppData" anywhere?!
Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated as the laptop is close to bein dismantled with force!!!!!!

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

Right, I did have to alter my settings in sysdm.cpl and then I rebooted.
Hopefully Ive zipped up the minidump file correctly and its attached....

for the .dmp files you uploaded I can see three different reasons so I suggest burn to CD (using an ISO burner) & run from boot memtest86+ for at least 5 passes, please move the sticks singly and together between slots to verify motherboard ram slots work as well as the ram sticks.

also temporarily remove AVG as this has been known to casue bluescreen crashes and replace with MSE for now ?

also unninstall your LSI SoftModem Driver from device manager, then reboot and disable in your bios ?

your ati driver is old
Code:
atikmdag.sys	atikmdag.sys+12d9c	fffff880`03e2e000	fffff880`04350000	0x00522000	0x49f199cd	24/04/2009 10:51:57
please update it from AMD's website ?

can you also please fill out your system specs on this forum to help with debugging your crashes

If you get any more bluescreens please upload the .dmp files and let us know how the memory checking goes

I have had a few more blue screens since, the latest one mentioned "driver irql not less or equal" as opposed to just irql. I have attached the updated mini dump files but I havent done anything mentioned above yet as Ive just got in from a meeting after work so I will probably have a bash at some of that tomorrow....

Thanks in advance though!!

All of your recent memory dumps are actually blaming a driver, sdbus.sys, for causing a page fault at an Interrupt ReQuest Level (IRQL) of DPC_DISPATCH (2):

Sdbus.sys in this dump currently has a timer registered (it must be registered to do something at intervals, although I'd have to research specifically what - otherwise, I assume it's polling an SD card reader for insertion of a card), and the kernel is saying the timer for that object has expired and is calling back into sdbus.sys to handle the timer expiry. However, for whatever reason, sdbus.sys is no longer loaded - thus any calls into it will cause a paging fault at IRQL 2. The reason this causes a crash is because Windows absolutely positively ***!!!cannot!!!*** page fault at a IRQL higher than 1, because only devices that run at higher IRQL can interrupt a lower IRQL, as Windows is designed. A page fault would cause the NT memory manager to need to make a request for data from disk to put into memory, but that request would come from IRQL 1, or APC_LEVEL. You'll note (if you visited the link above) that APC_LEVEL is IRQL 1, which is lower than 2 - thus, the system would irrevocably hang at this point if that page fault request was to be queued. Thus, instead of hanging the system forever, Windows instead bugchecks with either a bugcheck code 0xA or 0xD1 - they both ultimately mean the same thing, and that is what happened above.

Sdbus.sys is a Windows 7 driver, but it should only load if there's an SD card reader (or a SD card reader driver from a 3rd party) loaded/installed. Thus, this would indicate that you have 3rd party SD card drivers installed, potentially a 3rd party filter driver (like antivirus or hardware disk/filter drivers), or the SD card reader itself attached to the system that could be the likely culprits for this behavior. I would start by making sure all of your drivers are up to the latest version by the manufacturer, and that you also install Windows 7 SP1. Also, you are not using the HP BIOS version that actually has support for Windows 7 (F.38, November 2009) on that particular machine, which is available for download here.

Wow...well all that was like speakin another language to me lol. Sorry to sound dense. So basically if I update all my drivers that should work?
Before I installed Windows 7 I used something called Double Driver to back up all the drivers I had on the laptop when it was running Vista Home edition, had no blue screens with that. Would that help if I re-installed all the drivers from that program?
Also as an added note my laptop does have a built in SD card reader, but why does the blue screen only appear when I close the laptop lid and it goes into sleep mode? Whats the connection? It doesnt happen any other time *touch wood*!!
