Windows 7: Frequent BSOD ataport.sys

05 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Frequent BSOD ataport.sys


I have had this HP G61 laptop since Jan 2010, and it came with Windows 7 64bit installed.

I have had fairly frequent (several times a day) and apparently random BSODs for the last month or so. I have had four different error messages - most often IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL, but in the last couple of days also DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, which names ataport.sys as being possibly to blame. The BSODs often happen within a few minutes of turning the computer on, but also at random other times later, with no noticeable correlation to what I'm doing. Also, whenever I try to run an Avast scan, it will get about 10 seconds in and then BSOD. When I was at home without internet access for a couple of weeks in the middle of this period, I did not experience any BSODs, but I don't know whether that's related. I'm not aware of having installed anything new or changed anything before this started.

I've attached the dump files and system health report.

I'd be really grateful for any help you can provide :)

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

This laptop was obviously upgraded from a previous OS. The crashes were primarily related to your Avast but a hug additional problem is about half the OS drivers are old and need to be updated.

How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
