Windows 7: BSOD while playing Skyrim SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

12 Feb 2012   #11

Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium

Could you please tell me how to uninstall AODDriver2.sys as what I've done obviously didn't work.

How I uninstalled:

Device manager > View: Show hidden devices > Right click on AODDdriver > Uninstall > restarted PC. I then went back to device manager to make sure it wasn't listed there and it wasn't and still isn't.

The method of "If it's in the AMD VISION Engine Control Center, you can uninstall it using the AMD uninstall tool" Doesn't work as AMD install manager (Which is what I am assuming the uninstall tool is as I can't find a dedicated AMD uninstall tool from my google searches) doesn't list AODDriver or any sort of overdrive tool as installed.

What is the best thing to do?

I did update my realtek drivers, but i'll do it again as something obviously didn't work the first time. FYI I downloaded and installed "Win7 and WinServer 2008 R2 Auto Installation Program (SID:1483418)" From the link you provided.

Make sure it is removed from Program and Features. If it isn't there then run MSCONFIG and disable it from starting.

AODDriver2.sys was located in C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Fuel\amd64 so I disabled AMD FUEL Service in MSCONFIG under services as that was the only thing I could find related to AODDriver2.sys in MSCONFIG. I have also deleted AODDriver2.sys off my hard drive, I don't know if that was stupid of me but after a couple of restarts and some gaming I haven't run into any problems.

The only AMD program that was/is in my Programs and Features is AMD Catalyst Install Manager.

I re downloaded the realtek drivers and ran a repair.

I have also run another jcgriff and system report:

Attachment 198082

I'll run the hardware tests over the next couple of days and report back here with my results when they're done.

Again I thank you for helping me with this as I can't find a solution anywhere else.

I ran memtest for 7 passes and got 0 errors.

In Prime95 I ran Small FFTs for 4 hours, 0 errors and 0 warnings on all 4 cores.
Large FFTs 4 hours, 0 errors and 0 warnings on all 4 cores.
Blend for 14 hours, 0 errors and 0 warnings on all 4 cores.
Max temperature on all 4 cores was 59C (132F).

However after removing/deleting AODDriver2.sys my PC hasn't crashed at all! I have run multiple games for a few hours and Skyrim past the point it would usually crash several times. So for the moment I think AODDriver2.sys was the cause of the problem!

Thanks for all your help and I'll now mark this thread as solved. Let's hope it stays like that
