Windows 7: First BSOD in years

First BSOD in years

Hi folks

Awesome forum to have, glad I found this.

I just got a BSOD before Windows loaded, it mentioned uxpatcher. I didn't write down the other figures, sorry, but I've attached the reports.

Some notes:

As per title, first BSOD in years, and so far it's only happened once. But as they say, where there's smoke, there's fire...
I use avast! for AV, but it's not recognised by the security center.
UAC is off.
I used a program that disables digital driver signature enforcement before startup so I can use my PS3 controller as a game pad.

I'd appreciate any help you can give me!

Cheers

Hi -

Please check c:\windows\minidump for dump files. If any found, copy to Documents, zip them up and attach to next post.

WERCON reports many appcrashes related to PCA2 (compatibility), BEX (buffer overflow; security) and dozens of 0x116 Live Kernel Events related to video, but no BSODs.

Regards. . .

I see; However I wasn't able to find any dump files in that folder.

Does that mean things are in relative good working order and treat it as a one off glitch?

Thanks for the quick reply.

If you actually saw a Blue Screen of Death and no dump was produced, it could mean a catastrophic hardware event took place, meaning that the system came down so fast Windows 7 did what it needed to to save itself and there was not time to produce the dump file.

I checked your page file and it has an allocated base size of 4091 MB - perfect for a 4 GB RAM system. I also checked the system crash settings; all appear OK - same with the WERCON system service - it is set to "manual"; which is fine. All seems to be in order to produce a BSOD kernel memory dump.

You can run the Driver Verifier which checks out 3rd party drivers if you like -

Driver Verifier - jcgriff2.com

If the Driver Verifier flags a 3rd party driver, it will BSOD your system.
