Windows 7: BSOD when exiting applications

15 Dec 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional, 32bit

ok, i'm attaching the content from the minidump folder. it's only from my win 7 32bit, i have no files left from my win 7 64bit installation (prior to july).
i find the issues quite similar to alexseven's description, i've seen BSODs more often when exiting Counter-Strike (maybe because it's my most played game). About 1 of 10 times when pressing quit in the game, would result in a BSOD - saying something about cdd.dll, sometimes win32k.sys, sometimes no file was specified. While the BSOD was on my screen, a buzzing noise could be heared from my speakers (I've disabled the automatic restart, so i can get to read the messages in the BSOD - i even took pictures of them).
I got BSODs not only in games, but also when exiting Steam, and sometimes Yahoo messenger (v 10).
I don't know if it matters, but i use iTunes quite often so it was running most of the time on my computer.

I was suspecting the video card to be faulty (which i purchased just before i've migrated to windows 7 - thanks to MS Academic Alliance for the free license, btw ). Unfortunately, the video card seems to be working properly, since i'm running windows XP again for about two weeks now, and there's no sign of any BSOD on windows XP (and i'm spending more time in games - mainly Counter-strike - than i was spending in the last weeks or so, on windows 7).

forgot to mention: during the months spent running windows 7 (either 32 or 64bit version) i've tried several versions of display driver, some from the asus site, others directly from amd/ati site. got BSODs on all, don't remember if there was a differrence in the frequency of BSODs between each driver version.
i was thinking of trying older audio driver versions, but can't seem to find other version available than the last one (from gigabyte site). On windows XP i'm using now an older audio driver (i've got an older version from the CD) - so i don't really know if the audio driver version is the reason for the BSOD.
