Windows 7: BSOD on start-up before desktop

17 Dec 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Wow... I really do appreciate the help. I'm just noticing that the file you're pointing me towards (the Intel one) isn't for my operating system. I would just like confirmation that you want me to try that file.

I've done the other two checks you suggested... I got the latest ASMedia driver installed, and confirmed that my OCZ SSD is running the latest firmware.

If I can get any further assistance. New crash dumps from this evening. Had computer turned off while at work. Come home and turn on... BSOD is back. Occurred twice. In safe mode... collected logs. Rebooted system back to normal mode, and it appears fine for now.

I looked further in to the driver you were suggesting, and within the read me it does mention Windows 7 (where the Intel site didn't mention Windows 7, and caused my concern). The driver has been installed now (after the logs were created) and can be seen in the screenshot.

Guessing it'll work fine while I play games for the night... and will report back tomorrow if BSOD is back.

Can you enable Driver verifier?

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Wow, that's a really cool feature. Crashed pretty quickly... looks like some ASUS driver (asupio.sys).

Not my first run-in with software issues from them... had their Network iControl software (from their AI Suite II) cause major (45-60 second) delays with my NIC grabbing a connection (even a static IP) before. Fixed later with an update... but this is more major then that.

Your suggestion for my next step?

Thanks again.

A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught.  This is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.

Had I been there in your place, I would not have used ASUS hardware monitoring software.

Better you Uninstall it:

Totally done with the extra ASUS software. Uninstalled.

File is still found in c:\windows\syswow64\drivers\... is that of any concern since the software it is uninstalled?

Should I run verifier to stress test again... or just give it regular time to see if it reoccurs?

Delete that one manually ... also search in system32\drivers ...

Disable DV now. Run it normally. If it crashes again, enable DV again. But it may not, as both the DV enabled crashes indicated the exactly same thing.

Ok. Thanks again. I'll be back in a day or so... or upon the next BSOD if that occurs sooner.

Sad to say, it's back this morning. First crash I noticed 'srv2.sys' mentioned. Not sure what to do about that. Second crash was random. Back to safe mode and collected the first set of logs.

Back in normal mode. Enabled Driver Verifier (all non-MS drivers). After first reboot, minute or so after desktop has loaded we get another crash... didn't catch the exact driver. After another reboot... no crash at all (with Driver Verifier still enabled). Disabled verifier... rebooted.. re-enabled verifier... still no crash. Now disabled once again. Second set of logs collected.

Still search if any updates are available, in Intel Download Center. BTW, what antivirus do you use?

Scan the system for possible virus infection.
Do some disc checks, too.

  1. Update your SSD's Firmware (Skip it, if it is not a ssd)
  2. Re-seat the sata and power.
  3. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  4. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Let us know the results.
