Windows 7: BSOD various error codes occuring

BSOD various error codes occurring

Hi there. Starting since about a week ago my system has been constantly getting BSODs ranging from codes (driver)IRQL not less or equal, page fault in non paged area, to KMODE exception not handled, among a couple of others.

I would really appreciate it if I can get help and finally be able to fix these. I've sifted through a lot of suggestions through other sites such as scanning the system through cmd and using different diagnostic tools that I've read in other forums, but they oddly come out negative (hardware/memory). I'm at my wit's end troubleshooting, and would gladly accept advice after finally deciding to join this forum.

My system specs are:
Windows 7 Home Premium
x64-based PC

My system is about less than 2 years old, a Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q887.

Attached are my dump & system file collection and performance report as per the BSOD posting guideline sticky.

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.

1. I note you have AVG.
AVG can be a contributing cause of BSOD'S .
Please remove and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

Download tools and utilities | AVG Worldwide

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

2. Please remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp, called sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure - Downloads

when you're done you can use this Freeware:

MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM (MagicDisc) in its place

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

There are far to many probable causes to be certain ATM. The most recent ones have uptimes of around 15 mins and from that I would think a driver rather than hardware.

I would run several tests to be certain.

Lets start with a system file check.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

If it passes that we can run driver verifier to check what driver is misbehaving.

Wish I could've replied sooner. Had work all day.


I will try and do that, though AVG has been my antivirus software for a while now and I'd be really surprised if it turns out to be one of the reasons for my BSOD.

And to do as much as even giving a replacement Virtual CD/DVD-ROM! I'm grateful for the tip, thanks.

*Daemon tool removed


Just did the scan as you suggested. Got "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity

Also, I've already tried Driver Verifier before, if that counts. I saw it in one of the other forums, checked all non-Windows related drivers, then restarted the system. But then I ended up with a stop code 0x000000C9, saying "The IO manager has detected a violation by a driver that is being verified." Had a bit of trouble getting the system to reboot properly, then resetting the Verifier settings after successfully doing so.

Also, I ran a Disk Check and the scan found no errors whatsoever. Just wanted to add this in case it helps.

[EDIT] I was able to use my system smoothly for a good hours straight. I turned it off and turned it on again after a few hours, and got a BSOD in the middle of an online match, stating another IRQL not or less equal error caused by ntoskrnl.exe (26ee0). Hope this helps.

I would recommend removing Norton PC Checkup. I do not see the benefit of the software, and it may cause conflicts on the system.

None of the above raise red flags, but if there are any updates available through the Toshiba support site, I would recommend downloading and installing them.

In addition to the above, I see a number of memory_corruption crashes. Also, there were a couple network related crashes that may have been related to AVG...

Start with the possible memory problems:
  • Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

    If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Another concern is all the corrupted .dmp files. This could indicate hard drive problems. Since the Windows hard disk check came up clean, I would recommend a more intensive check with the Drive Fitness Test

Removed/Deleted the Norton PC Check-up (it was not appearing in the installed programs list, so I deleted the folders.) And will update the drivers you mentioned.

For the Memtest, I will run it later tonight before going to sleep, I really appreciate the detailed information you gave, thanks. Will get back to you once I'm done with the testing.

[EDIT] Apparently that Norton PC Check-up was the Toshiba Laptop Checkup, only under that name. Successfully uninstalled.
