Windows 7: Multiple_IRP_Complete_requests BSoD

Multiple_IRP_Complete_requests BSoD

Hi everyone,

My dial-up Creatix V.90 HAM modem causes this BSoD Multiple_IRP_Complete_requests when shutting down Windows 7. I've used this modem for years with other versions of Windows without any problems.

There are no drivers for Windows 7, but it installs, is recognized with its full name, the General box says "This device is working properly" and operates without problem with this OS. Before shutting down, I have to disable the modem in Device Manager to avoid the BSoD (sometimes this very disabling causes the computer to hang and nothing less than a reset will do).

Is there something I can do -a change somewhere in the properties dialog in Device Manager for instance- to resolve this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi zpluug. What is the dates of drivers? If there are no Win 7 drivers, it is time to upgrade your modem to one certified compatible with Win 7.

Hi CarlTR6,

Thanks for the response, but If I was going to change the modem I wouldn't have posted

In fact the modem's OK. The latest drivers are for XP and as I said, no problem is detected by Windows 7. I was thinking of whether there's something I could change in the ports, hardware, resources, etc. settings of which you guys might know that would stop the BSoD when shutting down in Windows 7.

To be honest, I'll stick with XP SP2 for a while, not just because of my modem. By the way I have another Rockwell modem which only works with the same Creatix drivers in Windows XP and XP will not install this modem with any Rockwell driver!!!

I'm not that positive about Windows 7 because while there are useful improvements (I don't have a touch screen) there are quite a few inexplicable changes that make life for someone who prefers using the keyboard to the mouse, impossible.

Regarding stability, I've had incurable freezes and hangs in the short couple of months testing of Windows 7 that I have never had using Windows XP in the last almost 10 years.

Hardware and software designed for XP and not updated for Win 7 will not run smoothly with Win 7 except in the XP mode. Win 7 is not an evolution from XP; it is an entirely new OS. Trying to run XP hardware and software on Win 7 (except in the XP mode) is akin to trying to use '60's VW Beetle suspension on a new Porsche 911. Win 7 was designed to use and take advantage of the new technologies. You will have instability on Win 7 with XP drivers loading. You can install XP stuff in Win 7's XP mode; it is a virtual mode.

Dear CarlTR6,

I know all this and I explained that for the time being I am satisfied with Windows XP. No, I have serious problems working with Windows 7's Windows Explorer, an application that's always open (sometimes more than one instance of it) no matter what kind of work I am doing.

All my hardware is from Windows XP era, I have quite a few pieces of hardware, some semi-professional, that are valuable and don't need to be changed since their companies have developed drivers for Windows 7. The only piece was the modem (my both modems) which since I have returned to using Windows XP will continue to serve until Microsoft brings back the features in Windows Explorer they have suppressed I don't know why.

Thanks again for the response though.

My wife still runs XP; it is perfectly adequate for her needs. Many businesses and government entities still run XP due to the cost of upgrading and unique software that has not been upgraded for Win 7. I had to upgrade my desktop for Win 7. I'm glad I did; I really like Win 7. I did have a learning curve to face, though.

It's not about the learning curve, it's about the inexplicable changes in Windows 7 that make living with it simply impossible especially for someone who uses the keyboard at least as much as the mouse. Here some of my nags:

1. The horizontal scrollbar under tree view (navigation pane) in Windows Explorer is gone

2. When you launch Windows Explorer, the items pane gets the focus instead of the tree view (navigation pane). The focus on the right pane simply puts the existence of the tree view under question. Each time you have to set the focus on the tree view with the mouse before being able to use the tree view.

3. As you go up and down in tree view using the arrows, the folder you select does not open in items pane, yet another mouse click is needed

4. Disk free space, item count and total file size in the status bar in Windows Explorer are gone

5. The Up button to easily go to the upper folder is gone and when you are in a deep multiple folder in folder structure it's hard not to be confused to click the button with the name of the immediate folder up

6. The old (Win 98, XP) Control Panel with the icons was much more intuitive to use. I'll spare the trouble you go through to reach certain pages like the Device Manager, Computer Management, monitor resolution page, etc., etc., etc.

7. The two monitor icons in the task bar showing network activity (whether data is sent or received) are badly missed

8. The cumbersome three click stage to get to the network activity status dialog instead of one click on that icon is totally incomprehensible

9. A Ctrl+Alt+Delete plus T (for instance) would launch the Task Manager in no time, now you have to reach for the mouse (again) to click the relevant button...

10. In XP, once an instance of Windows Explorer was maximized, this setting would be retained until a next format and Windows install. In Windows 7, every now and then it will open in a smaller window (bug?)
I usually refrain from using smilies on forums, here I make an exception which shows how serious I am with this issue, and I'll stick with XP just like your wife and many businesses as you said do until the day no software will function under XP!

Regards

Z
