Windows 7: Frequent random BSOD Netio.sys

31 Dec 2012   #1

Win 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 64 bit
Frequent random BSOD Netio.sys


I have a Thinkpad T410 and have been getting frequent random BSOD for a long time. I finally got it to create a mini dump by editing the registry directly as it would not save the setting under control panel.

The bluescreen view utility shows the problem is netio.sys and shows driver IRQL not less or equal.

I have downloaded and ran the SF Diagnostic Tools and hope the results are included here.

Thanks for any assistance.
All the best in 2013

This software is a known cause of BSOD's. The windows 7 operating system does not require these registry cleaning software. They often tune-down rather than tune-up and can wreck the OS beyond repair. Microsoft have improved Windows 7 significantly and it is much better at organising and optimising itself than its predecessors. Check this, this and this thread for evidence.

If you feel the need to use a registry cleaning or optimisation software, most of us recommend the use of CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download but make sure you back up the registry before making letting ccleaner delete anything.

Go to this link: Intel® Driver Update Utility Check for latest updates, download and install all latest updates one by one.

Let us know the results.

Happy new year!
