Windows 7: BSOD problems help needed

14 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

So, i have a problem with my computer. The bsod appears when i listen to music oftenly, that's what i've noticed. But i think i'm wrong i don't know what to say, sometimes it does not trouble me for like an hour depending on what i am doing, and sometimes when i power up my computer the bsod appears in about 5 minutes.

I have Windows 7 32bit an OEM version.
The PC i have it's kinda new. fresh windows 7 on him updated from xp
Intel Core 2 Duo @2.4Ghz
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS

USBPORT.SYS does that ring a bell?

Hello Boskoete, welcome to SF! Sorry it took some time, Crashes and Debugging has been very busy here...

There are a couple of things to clear up that might cause these crashes:

1. Try to make sure Windows Update finishes. It has had problems and maybe was interrupted.
Please go to your Maintenance Center and check the Windows Update status. Make sure you are up to date, do them one by one manually if needed.
For help or reset see: Windows Update - Reset
2. Your latest dumps shows problems with your nVidia (Graphics drivers).
You need to go here Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

And download latest for your graphical card. Sometimes just updating is not sufficient because the manufacturers are not very good at de-installing older drivers before installing new. If problems remain after update: follow the quote below to make very sure the old is deleted before you install new.

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Driver Sweeper

Driver Sweeper is a fast tool to remove driver leftovers from your system. It's very important to remove your drivers on a proper way, because driver leftovers can cause problems like stability and startup problems. You can use it if you want to update/remove drivers from your system.

How to use ?

There are two methods to use Driver Sweeper.
Both methods achieve the same results. This method is always able to clean all files.

This method will delete remaining files upon reboot (if deleting failed). You can clean your drivers this way:

- Use the official uninstaller(s) of the driver(s) you want to uninstall.
- Reboot your PC in Safe Mode.
- Run Driver Sweeper and select what to clean.
- Analyse lists all the entries possible to remove, cleaning removes the entries selected.
- More drivers can be selected for the same cleaning process.

What can it be used for ?
The current supported drivers are NVIDIA (Display and Chipset), ATI (Display), Creative (Sound) Realtek (Sound), Ageia (PhysX) and Microsoft (Mouse). - Driver Sweeper
When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy, from the manufacturers' site if possible.
3. ASACPI.sys. This driver is way too old and has known problems in W7...
ASACPI.sys Fri Aug 13 04:52:52 2004 (411C2D04)
1-ASACPI.SYS a major cause of BSOD's in the 2005 rev.

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

The 2005 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).
Lets test after these steps and if you still get dumps, please post back and upload those. we'll follow-up.

Also, check your logical disks. F: has 0 free space. That is bound to cause trouble.
