Windows 7: CompositeBus.sys BSOD

Well the first driver I updated was nVidia SATA and networking, but upon restart:

1. Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection no longer detects if Firewall is enabled, which it is,
2. I get the 80244024c error trying to get to Windows Update (even clicking Check online for updates doesn't work).
3 Internet Explorer won't connect to the Internet, even though obviously I'm connected with firefox.
4. Also, Outlook no longer connects to my mail servers!

Any thoughts?

OK, nevermind. It was a " netsh winsock reset" issue, which resolved connectivity upon restart. Continuing with the other drivers.

Cheers,

Hi,

Still updating drivers but had a crash today that, according to BlueScreenView, was caused by mssmbios.sys+def52f (crash dump attached).

According to Dell support, I have the latest WiFi driver (1510 mini card with Broadcom chip, version 5.30.21.0), but not finding anything newer on the Broadcom site.

It seems most of these crashes occur when I'm not even doing anything. This a.m. I stepped away from the laptop for a minute and returned to the blue screen. Not sure if that helps you.

Thanks,
George

I checked Blue screen view and it does say mssmbios.sys wich is an OS file and not likely, but in case it is you should run a system file check

Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.

Also you still have old drivers.

How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

Let us know if you need further assistance

George, it is crucial to update those drivers. Do you need help with this?

Hi, I could not find downloads of:

OA001Ufd.sys
OA001Vid.sys
itecir.sys
spldr.sys


And from Dell support I download their latest Ricoh card reader drivers:

rimspx64.sys
rixdpx64.sys
rimmpx64.sys

..but they are from 2009, and I had no luck searching the Ricoh support site for more recent versions.

OA001Ufd.sys and OA001Vid.sys - Upper Filter Drivers are driver files from Creative Technology Ltd. These must be for your web cam. If you cannot update these drivers, the hardware is obsolete and not compatible with Win 7. Check here: Windows 7 Compatibility: Software Programs & Hardware Devices: Find Updates, Drivers, & Downloads If there is no update, I recommend that you install this hardware and up grade to a camera compatible with Win 7.

itecir.sys - Integrated Technologies Express Ltdhttp://www.liutilities.com/device-driver/ite-cir-driver/ This is an input driver and, according to the link, it is not compatible with Win 7. Uninstall the program associated with this driver. If you do not know which program it is, nanvigate to C;\Windows\System32\Drivers. Find the file and rename it it from itecir.sys to itecir.bak. Reboot. This will most likely break the program associated with this driver.

spldr.sys - ignore this one. This is a Windows system driver and it is fine despite the old date.

What are the dates of the Ricoh drivers you downloaded? The "magic" date for Win 7 is July 13, 2009 or later. It may be that the card reader is obsolete hardware and you may need to upgrade to a card reader that is Win 7 compatible. You can check it out at Windows 7 Compatibility: Software Programs & Hardware Devices: Find Updates, Drivers, & Downloads

The Ricoh drivers are from June 25, 2009, and are the "latest" available from Dell's support site for my laptop (Studio XPS m1340).

I renamed the itecir.sys driver to .bak. Not sure what it was associated with.

I just opened a support ticket with Dell regarding updated versions of the Ricoh and Creative drivers.

Anything else I can do on my end?

Thanks!

Good job, George. Maybe those drivers will work for the card reader. They are late Vista drivers. You could always try to run the card reader in the compatibility mode. Your only other option will be to upgrade the card reader to one that is Win 7 compatible. But lets try it first.

You will know what that itecir.sys goes to when you try to run a a program or device and it won't work.

For now, run your system and let's see what happens. Upload any new BSOD's and we will go from there. Hopefully, you won't have any.

Hi,

I've had 2 more BSODs (see attached dumps), and according to BlueScreenView both were caused by bcmwl664.sys, which is Dell's 1510 WiFi card driver. Over the months I've repeatedly uninstalled and reinstalled the WiFi card drivers. Current version available from Dell is 5.30.21.0.

Do the minidumps suggest anything else at fault?

Earlier today I installed Ricoh drivers provided from Dell tech support. Still waiting for them to provide the integrated web cam drivers.

Thanks!
George
