Windows 7: BSOD using Verifier.exe...

06 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
BSOD using Verifier.exe...

Attempted to track down a suspected faulty driver using verifier.exe resulted in multiple BSOD, although only one mini-dump file was successfully written, of the Nvidia system driver nvlddmkm.sys. However, repeated use of verifier.exe isolating this driver did not result in additional BSOD's which I found was odd. Attached is the mini-dump file of this event; any comments or suggestions would be helpful.

Background information:
Computer background info:
-OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, OEM version, purchased from Fry's Electronics.
-Motherboard: Gigabyte P55A-UD3
-Chipset: Intel i5-760
-RAM: 8gig Corsair XMS3 1600, matched latency
-HD: Seagate Barracuda 1 Tb 7200 rpm 32 Mb cache
-Video Card: NVidia GTX 460 768 MB

Have also run Memtest for 7 days trying different combination of RAM in different slots, omitting RAM, and using new RAM. There is no anti-virus loaded on this machine at this time to eliminate its possibility of causing errors as well.

Thank you in advance

Hi CycloneJoe67 and Welcome.

Usual causes:
Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility.

Your latest dump file blames Pool_corruption which usually indicates bad drivers. Although your drivers look good.

You could update your graphics driver to the latest version. nVidia Graphics Driver.
Download and install Driver Sweeper.
Boot to Safe Mode
Uninstall current Graphics Drivers set up.
Run Driver Sweeper to clean up any left overs.
Reboot to Normal Mode.
Install your new Graphics Drivers.

Set Driver Verifier to check all drivers except system drivers.

GoTo Start and in the Search or Run... Window type verifier.exe and press Enter
Select Create custom settings (for code developers) and click "Next"
Select Select individual settings from a full list and click "Next"
Select every option EXCEPT for Low Resource Simulation and click "Next"
Select Select driver names from a list and click "Next"
Select all drivers listed that are NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
Select "Finish" on the next page.

As a Priority:

Run an up to date scan with Malwarebytes' Free.

Download and install BSOD friendly Microsoft Security Essentials.

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.

Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
