Windows 7: BSOD every 10 minutes.

BSOD every 10 minutes.

I've had like 30 BSOD's over the past 2 days. I've checked on things and it's mainly when I start uTorrent. After a few minutes, it BSOD's. It's mainly .sys that is listed in the memory dumps. Had one .exe listed. They were nwifi.sys, nvlddmkm.sys, tcpip.sys, athrxusb.sys, ntkrnlmp.exe, pacer.sys, and memory_corruption. Any ideas? Let me know if you need more information.

I've attached a text file of the memory dumps to be more precise for you all. Sorry if I was rambling there.. xD

Hi Takara welcome to the forum. It looks like you have driver issues. As a start I would suggest you remove any non native Win 7 drivers. Download the latest Win 7 GPU drivers from Nvidia and install those and the ones for your chipset as well. Report back once you have done this.

I presume from this you mean that you have installed the chipset and gpu drivers? What devices do you have showing in device manager either with a problem or as unknown?

I don't have any showing as unknown or as having a problem. Then again, I didn't have any that showed it before either.

Is the pc still blue screening? If not keep an eye on it for a while. Btw did you do an upgrade or a clean install?

It was a clean install and yeah, it still blue screens a few minutes after starting uTorrent.

What version of Win 7 are you running? If you don't run utorrent does it still bluescreen? What wireless card are you using?

It doesn't blue screen if I don't use uTorrent, but it's the only way I can get what I need. I'm using a Belkin Wireless G USB adapter. I'm running build 7100, the official RC.

Ok it's obvious that utorrent is causing the issue. I would suggest you uninstall utorrent, reboot the pc, run windows update and then download utorrent again and install it.

If you are still getting blue screens check for any malware/viruses. Also check to see if there is another driver available from Belkin for your wireless card. I don't use any torrent software so I can't confirm/deny if utorrent works on Win 7.
