Windows 7: BSOD on wake up from "sleep"

23 Sep 2013   #1

BSOD on wake up from "sleep"


This probably will be my last attempt at getting win 7 64 to run properly on my dual boot machine.

The partition only has Win 7 64 on it with:

Norton Security Suite
Blue Screen View
Acronis 2013 v6514 ( installed AFTER the BSOD )

I am trying to install only one program at a time and then use the machine for a week and install another program and so on.

Today I had the machine on standby, not hibernation, and when I woke it up I got the BSOD.

Blue Screen View seemed to indicate the error was caused by DirectX.

What do you guys think?

Thank you,

It appears you have a Beta Version installed 320.49, please uninstall and
install version 314.22, which is a stable driver:

1. Download and install Driver Fusion.
2. Reboot the computer in Advanced Boot Options, safe mode.
3. Search Driver Fusion in your start menu, and remove all components of your nVidia display driver.
4. If it says the free version of Driver Fusion cannot remove all the elements, stop there and follow:
Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling
5. Boot normally now. Then install the 314.22 driver. Reboot.

Then disable the Nvidia updater:

1. Press "Win key + R" combination to open the Run search box.
2. Type msconfig and click OK.
3. The System Configuration window will open
4. Select Start up Tab and uncheck any Nvidia update programs present, click Apply.
5. Select the Services Tab, and check the "Hide all Microsoft Services"
6. Uncheck any Nvidia Corporation boxes, click Apply then OK, reboot.

If your BSOD's continue after this, then follow this guide for STOP 0x116 errors:

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes:

Run these tests overnight

Also please ensure you have all the latest Windows updates installed.
