Windows 7: Win32k.sys BSOD

17 Feb 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Win32k.sys BSOD

I just had a very random BSOD while just using the computer for browsing the web. It was related to win32k.sys. I have attached the dump files to this post. Any help would be much appreciated.

EDIT: I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit with SP1 and have an i5 760 processor and a GT240 graphics card.

Possible causes are Memory problems... Corrupted hard disk file system... Corrupted System Files... Graphics Driver... Drivers...

I note the following problem devices:
Microsoft ISATAP Adapter		ROOT\*ISATAP\0000	This device cannot start.
Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface	ROOT\*TEREDO\0000	This device cannot start.

Thanks to Dave76 for help understanding possible causes.

Start with the most likely problems (in bold) listed above.
  • If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

  • Look into your problem devices and try to determine why they cannot start. Start with a Google search if you are not familiar with the devices. If you still need help, post back and we can look into it for you, as well.

  • Run Disk Check with both boxes checked for all HDDs and with Automatically fix file system errors checked for all SSDs. Post back your logs for the checks after finding them using Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

  • Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations.
