Windows 7: Constant BSOD involving ntoskrnl.exe and win32k.sys

30 Sep 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Ah lame, I had already started uninstalling old drivers, but adding the devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices helped too. I took a screenshot of what was left so far. I had two more HID-compliant mouse displays in addition to the two in the screenshot and I had two other Sidewinder keyboards and a Standard P/S Keyboard. Some of the multiple copies were solid, after adding the variable, there were the grey ghosted ones that were visible. I'm very hesitant to test it out with Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and just in general, but I have to. Maybe the .dmp files will provide some different information now that I've been getting rid of old drivers and such. Or maybe my problems are solved, which would be fantastic. Thanks again for all the help so far

I have a thought and need some additional opinions: My Steam application and all the games are installed on a separate internal HDD (E: ) while the OS, etc, is on the primary HDD (C: ). Could there be an issue due to some update with some drivers, specifically Nvidia video drivers, that could cause a BSOD when trying to play said Steam games?

It is worth mentioning that I recently installed Sins of a Solar Empire on the primary drive and played for hours and hours this past night with no BSOD or hiccups at all. Thoughts?
