Windows 7: BSoD during gaming, 0xd1

27 Apr 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64
BSoD during gaming, 0xd1


I bought a PC about a month ago and I have Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64bit) on it. I had some 0x1a errors at first, but that got fixed by doing a Windows Update. So I was 'bluescreenless' for weeks.

Unfortunately 3 days ago it started giving me blue screens again. It happens daily, during gaming.
I ran memtest with both rams installed and and another 2 sessions with them separately. I did not get any errors.

I'd really appreciate if someone could help me out. Thanks in advance.

First off, thank you for your fast reply. I really appreciate your help.

The first time I got the BSoD I was using the 314.22 WHQL driver, now I am using the latest beta driver.
Will go back to 314.22 now, following your instructions.

In the meantime, I got another BSoD:

So I included the dump for that one and the msinfo32.

Thanks again.

EDIT: MSINFO is probably in my native language. If that causes any problem I will download the English language files and upload it again.

Probably caused by : intelppm.sys ( intelppm+2c61 )

Basically it indicates to a hardware error, but in the memory stack I am getting a lot of tcpip and Netio errors. Like these ...
fffff880`02f1a070  fffff880`0176e9a0 tcpip!Ipv4Global
fffff880`02f1a078  fffff880`01661bd7 tcpip!IpNlpFastSendDatagram+0xb77
fffff880`02f1a008  fffff880`01550e0e NETIO!FsbAllocate+0x8e
So it is something blocking the network perhaps. It may be any virus, or an antivirus, or a failing network adapter driver or any other network settings.

In a search, I got it.

Név [00000012] TAP-Win32 Adapter V9

It is either OpenVPN or Comodo. As a test, you may uninstall it.

Scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.
Update the Atheros AR8161/8165 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20) driver, from ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows (Atheros?????)

A hall.dll error is usually suspected as a hardware error. so perform those hardware tests.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

Stress test the CPU.

Funny thing is that I get these when I am playing indie games. Playing CPU/GPU intensive games do not yield any errors whatsoever.

I had my CPU OC'd recently so I was running Prime95 for 12 hours succesfully. And when I first got the 0xd1 I ran memtest and checkdisk. Those have not given me any errors. But I will run them again in the following nights.

Anyways, thanks for the help. I will post again if I get another BSoD, but hopefully the OVPN uninstall and the VGA driver re-install solved it.
