Windows 7: Random BSODs caused by ntoskrnl.

20 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Random BSODs caused by ntoskrnl.

I have been receiving random BSODs for a while now. WhoCrashed has given multiple causes including possibly my audio card driver. However i have tried changing this many time to different versions to no avail. I have 4 BSOD logs from recently and i was wondering if you could look at them and suggest what you think it may be. Im running 64bit windows 7.

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If kernel debugger is available get stack backtrace.

Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
Arg4: fffff880053d463a, address which referenced memory

Is is your Audio driver. Update it from the link provided in Driver Reference Table - cmudaxp.sys.

Uninstall Avast using Avast Uninstall Utility. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Download and install those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

You are using a beta of display driver.

I would suggest you to use a stable version, as it is alos a failing driver here.
  • Download and install Driver Fusion.
  • Reboot the computer in Advanced Boot Options, safe mode. Search Driver Fusion in your start menu, and remove all components of your AMD/ATI display driver.
  • Boot normally now. Install the appropriate ATI/AMD display driver.
    You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.

    During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.
Let us know the results.

** IF there are subsequent crashes after following these instructions, post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions. We need some more information in case.

Randomly happens, sometimes in a game, sometimes when browsing, sometimes when RDP'ed in, sometimes when unattended. No repro steps yet, just be patient and it will happen. Sometimes when it blue screens, it takes the whole network down spamming the switches and router with packets.
