Windows 7: BSOD (Again)

11 Dec 2010   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

This crash occurred after only 25 seconds of uptime. This means it is most likely either a hard issue or a driver issue. Can you boot in the Safe mode without a BSOD? If you can, that points to a likely driver issue. If you get a BSOD in the Safe mode, it is likely a hardware issue. I see this BSOD occurred during a cold boot. A failing power supply can cause this.

Your dump blames wininit.exe for the crash. This file is a Windows system startup file. There are some viruses that disguise themselves as wininit.exe. I suggest you download and install Malwarebytes. Update it and then run a scan to make sure you don't have a nasty lurking about on your system.

I find two outdated drivers loaded on your system. The rest of your drivers look good. Update these two drivers and see if they make a difference.

Let me know if you can cold boot in the Safe mode without a BSOD. That will tell us what we should try next. If you can boot in the Safe mode, enable Driver Verifier. Driver Verifier will cause a BSOD if it encounters a problem driver. Upload any and all Driver Verifier enabled dumps. Follow the instructions in this tutorial precisely: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable. If you get a BSOD in the Safe mode, run Memtest again from a cold boot after your computer has been off for a while. RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Hi Carl. I only seem to get BSOD (most of the time) when I boot from a real cold start, i.e. after several hours of PC downtime so the safe mode test you suggest probably won't be too useful. I did however have a problem with driver verifier. I ran it and got a BSOD on restart resulting from RTKVHD64.sys which gave a stop error code 0.0000005.

I've uploaded the dumps here too. Note that the last 2 dumps from today (12/10/2010) are the ones relevant to the driver verifier (I missed the safe mode option once so got another BSOD before I turned off driver verifier).

I did not have any malware and have updated the logitech drivers also.

So I had left my PC alone for a couple of hours and when I tried to reboot this time I had 'disk read error' press ctrl+alt+del to restart. I did and it restarted fine. Thought I'd mention it though. I've also reduced my RAM timings and voltage to 9-9-9-25 and 1.65V on the recommendation of someone I was talking to about RAM settings.

I see that you successfully updated the Logitech drivers. Very good. Your RTKVHD64.sys driver is up to date. The 0.0000005 error code means memory corruption. One of the two Driver Verifier enabled dumps contained no data; it is corrupt. Make sure Driver Verifier is turned off for now.

Run Memtest again from a cold boot after your computer has been off for at least two hours. RAM - Test with Memtest86+. I want to be as certain as we can be (Memtest is not perfect) that RAM is not causing the problem. Post your results.

Hi Carl. I'll do a memtest86+ run on each stick again, I guess I'll have the results by tomorrow afternoon maybe? I'll post as soon as I get them. Today and yesterday the system has only crashed from initial startup i.e. the first time it is turned on or if it left off for few hours before power up. Weird huh?

Yes it is weird and it really sounds like a power supply problem.

Odd thing is, that wasn't how it happened before! It would BSOD in the middle of running Firefox or watching a movie!

*Sorry, ignore this. I actually had a bad RAM stick when I first had errors (it's being RMA's at the moment).

As per usual, BSOD on first start up this morning. I'm running Memtest86+ now so I'll post the results when available. My error this time was BAD POOL HEADER Stop code 0x00000019. It also went into startup repair next boot and couldn't fix anything, thought it was a driver problem though. Do you want the dump file for this one too?

I read this post (see link below) about someone with a similar issue and they seemed to come to the conclusion it might be a hard disk issue? I only mention it because it's the same type of problem and I had that 'disk read error' yesterday. Any thoughts? I also did read another post where it was software related and clean install fixed all however...

It's all fun & games isn't it.

Run Check Disk
Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as adminstrator) Command Prompt. Please do this for each hard drive on your system.
When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter. Then reboot and let the test run. It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors. See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.

Elevated Command Prompt:
Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"

Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application log file entry.
Double click on the Source column header.
Scroll down the list until you find the Chkdsk entry (wininit for Windows 7).

Copy/paste the results into your next post.

I also suggest that your run an SFC (System File Checker) scan. SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker.

I tried to run a chkdsk on my secondary drive yesterday from in Windows (it's only got my work and pictures on it - no system files) and it got to the end of the scan and simply started again. I selected both the options to scan for and fix any errors. Is this usual? I also couldn't view the results of this in the event viewer. Should I have let in run through again?

I'm still on the memtest at the moment, stick 1 looks ok. I'll try stick 2 in a second then go onto the disk checking. I can also get copies of the Samsung and WD hard drive checkers for my respective drives. Should I use those too?
