Windows 7: BSOD On Brand New Dell Laptop.

BSOD On Brand New Dell Laptop.

Good afternoon,
A user received a BSOD while shutting down their PC. It is a Dell Lattitude E6520. It is running Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit. 4 GB RAM, 2.5 Ghz i5 Processor. I am including the zipped "Grab All" folder which contains the dmp file from the BSOD event. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Glad to provide more info if needed.

This is a business laptop and no new hardware has been added to it recently. It connects via a docking station connected to a 22 in Dell monitor. The user closed out all of his programs and began shutting down the PC when the BSOD occured.

Thank you for your help.

Welcome aboard, talag1ga.

In the crash dump you supplied, there is a lot of Ntfs.sys and fltmgr.sys error. That means, somehow the storage devices are failing to function properly. Due to a various reason this problem may occur, but one of the most common cause is the ambitious storage protection/filtering mechanism of an antivirus program.

A deeper search finds it out.

It is Symantec Real Time Storage Protection, which is repetitively failing, with a varying degree of failure. When the failure is large, it is causing a BSOD.

My suggestion for you is, uninstall Norton and all Symentec products using Norton Removal tool. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Free up the startup.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus. MSC, after making the aforesaid change.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept the restart.
Let us know the results.
