Windows 7: Win 7 crash from uTorrent I think...

01 Oct 2009   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) Build 7600
 
 

Ok, after doing a little testing using different configurations here is what I have found...

Test 1
------
No AV, Normal Windows, with music playing and while watching uTorrent to see what happends. It freezes after about a minute into a download. Everything simply stops and the sound gets stuck so the only option left is to reboot. I repeated this test and got the same result but noted something. The green tick in the bottem bar of uTorrent that shows the connection status changes to a red cross showing no connection right before the PC hangs.

Test 2
------
No AV, Safe Mode with Networking, no music playing as audio does not work and watching uTorrent. It freezes after about a minute into a download. Only option is to reboot. I also ran this test twice to see what happens and the PC froze after about 3-5 minutes into a download. The green tick at the bottem of uTorrent did not change to a red cross in both repetitions of this test so im sure that doesnt mean anything.

Windows Reliability monitor doesn't list todays tests for some strange reason and nothing odd pops up in event viewer. Can anyone help. I will try use a differnet torrent client and see if the problem continues.

Did you find a solution to this? I'm having the same issues!

(Running Utorrent in XP mode seems like a good temporary fix)

I can confirm from earlier posts, for some people utorrent doesn't go well with W7 in combination with particular network cards.

For others it works fine.

Good luck

Sorry for the late reply, I did manage to solve the problem and it was the wireless card drivers. I used older drivers and they worked without a problem, the older drivers were from 2005 I think. Try installing older drivers instead of newer ones. I think that is the solution. It has worked for me for 2 weeks now no problems .

G'day Sapper123.

I'm having the same problem you had and I've been looking for an older version (2005) of the DWA-510 driver software.

However, I can't seem to find it .

So if you or anyone else for that matter could please provide me with a link to a 2005 version of the DWA-510 driver, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Knew it all along, this same exact problem has been coming up since Jan. This has been by far the biggest problem that users have dealt with when upgrading to Windows 7. Utorrent just reveals the problem but it certainly is not the cause. The only fix seems to be going back to Vista or XP drivers or wait longer for new drivers that work correctly.

I had same problem with uTorrent. For me helps when I changed power settings to "do not turn off anything" on AC. I didn't test yet which option cause BSOD but I think it was turnig off HDD.

Ok for some reason the drivers that came with the Dlink cd caused the problem with uTorrent but older drivers that i found online from 2005 worked, thats old news, but using these drivers for a few months I have seen that since they are so old they give problems like random timeouts and high latency when I ping'ed my router. So I went searching the net to find some better drivers and I stumbled on to this page --> D-Link | Technical Support | Downloads

These are the latest drivers released for all Dlink network cards straight from Taiwan. Needless to say I was very happy when I saw a driver released somewhere in October of this year which fully supports Windows 7 x86 and x64 versions Go here and try it out yourself, look for the driver version 1.40, thats the latest I think. Using this driver my uTorrent problems didn't reappear and my timeout and high latency problems also disappeared I think these drivers are perfect at the moment, I haven't had any problems with them, try them out and see if it solves your problems.

utorrent and spotify freeze my pc

I'm having this same problem. I'm using Windows 7 64 bit, and whenever I open utorrent or spotify, after about 10 minutes the whole PC freezes and I have to take the power out. I'm not using a wireless card, just the ethernet port on my motherboard.

These are my specs:

Intel CPU Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz
Asus Motherboard P5K SE LGA775
6GB of RAM
Asus Extreme 8600GT 256MB DDR3
Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Series


All my drivers are up to date.

Is this the only way to fix it? In another thread there was a guy with the same problem which went away when he started using wireless. Am I going to have to make some change like that?


Thank you!
