Windows 7: Bsod

I've got a Samsung printer myself. You will still have the driver installed even if it's a network printer. Just leave it uninstalled for a couple of days while we troubleshoot this - then you can reinstall it without worrying.

Do you have the viewing of hidden and system files enabled in Explorer.exe? (Tools...Folder Options...View...Advanced settings) FYI - I don't have the directory either (in my copy of Win7), but mine is a clean install - not an upgrade from Vista.

Turning off power management will fix quite a few of these sort of errors - but that limits what you can do with your system. FYI - I had an Asus mobo that wouldn't go into sleep and wasn't able to fix it for almost a year. Finally I got a new motherboard and I can now use sleep and hibernation. Wow!!! Did I miss being able to use those features!

I do have the hidden and system files shown but that entire directory is not there. I will uninstall that printer now and let you know if I run into anything else.

Is there a way that i can search for that winring. I have used all the search functions i know of and none showed it even when searching all of c:

Let's not worry about it now. If it continues to show up in the error reports, then we'll deal with it then.
Does it show up in Device Manager?

No i have checked everything in device manager and it is not listed in the driver details for any device there.

When i run perfmon /report this is what it says-
Symptom: [IMG]res://wdc.dll/error.gif[/IMG]
Device is not present, not working properly, or does not have all of its drivers installed.

another bsod

I just had another bsod that was identical to the first image i posted. This problem with this one is that it froze up during the memory dump.

I have uploaded the dmp files but the last one was from this morning. It seems that this last one was never generated.

The good news is that WinRing isn't loaded in this dump file.
The bad news is that it still doesn't tell us anything about the cause of this error.

I would suggest checking this link for suggestions: Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Then I would check ALL of your hardware and software against this compatibility list: Windows 7 Compatibility: Software Programs & Hardware Devices: Find Updates, Drivers, & Downloads

And if that doesn't isolate it, then try stripping the system down to see what causes the issue. Here's a generic sequence that I posted a while back: Hardware Troubleshooting Via System Stripdown

Windows 7 Ultimate

Ok so i have done everything under the sun that i can conjure up to fix this issue. I installed a new 750w powersupply, new cooling for the cpu and the case, as well as the new graphics driver. I also removed all the drivers that were mentioned and still getting the same bluescreen.

I have reinstalled the drivers as well as tune up utilities because they were needed and obviously not the issue.

I truly believe that the issue is the winring0 that is the problem but i am still unable to find the file. i deleted all the temp files and other references to any cpu monitors but could not find a trace of the intel core series gadget. I also cleaned the registry to see if there were any references there for it and none showed up.

Any other ideas?

I have a new asus rampage 3 motherboard coming in a day or two. Will see if that helps.

Ok so i got the winring error to go away by reinstalling the sidebar gadget intelcoreseries 2.4 . Now my system does not report any errors. Will wait to see if that solved the problem. If so i will just leave it installed and contact the developer to let him know.
