Windows 7: Getting BlueScreen from ntoskrnl.exe

Getting BlueScreen from ntoskrnl.exe

Hey guys I'm new here

So yesterday, I got BlueScreen, and I've been trying to fix it ever since. I got it at least 50 time since then. I download Nirsofts BlueScreenView and it's telling me it's because of ntoskrnl.exe. I tried reinstalling my BIOS and graphics card drivers, but that didn't help. And I've attached 4 minidumps for you guys to look at.

Thanks

Hi, and welcome to the forums

Quote:
First enable low resolution mode and check if the issue is with graphic card driver.
Refer this link for information on how to enable low resolution mode:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Change-your-screen-resolution
If you are still facing the issue, then boot into safe mode and check again.
Start your computer in safe mode: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Start-your-computer-in-safe-mode
I also suggest you to update all the drivers.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Update-a-driver-for-hardware-that-isnt-working-properly
You can also download updated drivers from the manufacturer’s website and install on your computer.
Check with the hardware vendor for any updated hardware drivers or BIOS updates, or both.
NOTE : Modifying BIOS settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly.
Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of BIOS settings can e solved. Modifications of the
settings are at your own risk.

Hope it helps

Its not ntoskrnl.exe, it usually isnt.

Yours are caused by two things.


1-Sptd.sy (used by daemon tools/alcohol)


Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads
[/quote]
You can use MagicDisc as an alternative.

2- ASACPI.sys is from 2005 almost always causes BSOD's


ASACPI.sys Sun Mar 27 22:30:36 2005
[quote]
The 2005 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt
Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit " (it's about the 8th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).
