Error 0x00000101

Heres are the dumps. I couldn't get it to start up in Win7 normal mode anymore and when it tried to repair itself this time the repiar tool bluescreened as well. It may be an actuall processor error. I don't know i"m at a loss.

Error 0x101 keeps popping up but the cause of the error is usually a random ntoskernal or some other item. I recorded about 6 different files that caused it via the Bluescreenviewer application before the system became really unstable.

All of your .dmp files were inconclusive in their analysis... 0x101 .. We need to enable driver verifier to further pinpoint the reason for your crashes...

- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

You definitely have a hardware problem. Three of the dumps were error code 101. Please read these threads on Stop error 101. Post back with any questions that you have.

Edited to add: Tews and I were posting at the same time.

Thats the tricky part. The system is so unstable with the win7 updates that I can no longer repair. I'll need to do another fresh install and start from square 1 again. I'll get something for you guys as soon as I can. what I do know is before 43 microsoft updates it will stay up 24hours + without any crashes(once I get all my drivers set) I hadn't tried to install any download intensive games or memory intensive games yet though (IE LoL or WoW) Once I install those 43 Microsoft updates (some critical some important) the system will become increasingly unstable until What just occurred happened where when it tries to repair the startup it blue screens.

The only drivers that are affected in the updates after I looked at each one is actually a Fix for a 4gig usb error with Nvidia chipsets that modifies the Windows USB drivers,

There IS a USB controller that Windows does not recognize in my device manager. I have it disabled currently in windows though with the updates it doesn't seem to matter. Also Windows will state that it was unable to install drivers for a generic drive though I have only my RAZOR imperator ( made for win 7) and logitech G110 plugged in.

Very Very Interesting

Well after this install of Win 7 I haven't recieved one bluescreen yet. I've updated the windows updates I was willing too, But i also replaced my Processor fan heatsync with a 3rd party vendor one instead of the AMD that came with it. Either I finally had a good setup, or the fan/heatsync was going out and I needed to replace causing overheating in the Processor itself. Going to try out what you have posted to see if I can get it to bluescreen.

The Bluescreen.

here it is, updated after a fresh install, after the verifier stress it bluescreened before windows even had a chance to start up causing the system repair to kick in.

This is a Driver Verifier enabled dump. The error code is A, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. The dump blames dxgkrnl.sys which is a Direct X driver. This is very likely not the actual cause. The system crashed early and that indicates a hardware problem

I find an out of date driver on your system. Windows & does not like older drivers. I cannot say this driver contributed to the crash; but try to update it to eliminate it as a problem. Update it from the NVidia website.

nvsmu.sys Mon Jun 29 03:36:37 2009 - nVidia nForce System Management Controller (nVidia nForce chipset driver) Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

Since you are getting the BSOD so quickly and it is pointing to Microsoft files, turn Driver Verifier off. Did you go through any of the troubleshooting procedures in these links?

If not, please do so and report back with what you did and what you found. We will go from there.
