Windows 7: random BSOD when flying MSFX

random BSOD when flying MSFX


I've recently started getting BSODs when flying Microsoft FlightSimulator X. They appear to happen at random. I didn't use to have a problem but I 'upgraded' my Maxtor Storage Manager from V8.9 which was giving me dropouts on my RAID 1 volumes to V10.6 as recommended by intels driver check app. I have rolled back to the original version using system restore and re-applying the 8.9 driver from the asus motherboard site for my model.

My system is:
computer name: PCS-SSD
windows version: Windows 7 Service Pack 1, 6.1, build: 7601
windows dir: C:\Windows
CPU: GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU X 990 @ 3.47GHz Intel586, level: 6
12 logical processors, active mask: 4095
RAM: 17170518016 total
VM: 2147352576, free: 1954590720

Dump file attached. Any help appreciated. This is a geat annoyance and I want to avoid a system re-build!

Hello Tony, welcome to SF!

Quite a setup you've got there, looks good!

If this setup has been working fine for a longer period of time, we would suspect a change of some sort to have occurred for you to get these problems. However, looking at the dump, there is something wrong somewhere and for now it points to hardware...

HTML Code:
An exception happened while executing a system service routine.
Arg1: 00000000c000001d, Exception code that caused the bugcheck
Arg2: fffff88001002562, Address of the instruction which caused the bugcheck
Arg3: fffff8800d9f8a70, Address of the context record for the exception that caused the bugcheck
Arg4: 0000000000000000, zero.

Debugging Details:

A 3B is usually caused by System service, Device driver, graphics driver, ?memory... difficult to tell at his point so we'll also look for other telltale signs.

1 of those is a warning on the LogMeIn software that you appear to be using.
LogMeIn Kernel Information Provider ROOT\LEGACY_LMIINFO\0000 This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.
LogMeIn Mirror Driver ROOT\DISPLAY\0000 39
There is something wrong there... I would de-install (for testing). If you really need this kind of software, maybe Teamviewer would help. I've seen no probs with W7 on that.

Assuming the logmein issue is not, by itself, causing BSOD's when playing the game... we normally go for HW tests in order of the likeliness of faults appearring on heavy usage.

The first would be memory testing:
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Please post back any results...

Thanks for the reply. I have now used SF Diagnostic tool to find and remove drivers I am no longer using. LogMein was installed and removed but it left all that stuff around. I have run memtest86+ overnight and it passes with no errors. I have now been running FSX for a number of hours with no problems so fingers crossed the offending file has gone. Unfortunately I can't point to what exactly it was but I shan't be installing any drivers without a full system image first!
