Windows 7: BSOD Sims3 or maybe WinUpdate

05 Nov 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD Sims3 or maybe WinUpdate

I have had problems with BSOD on this computer before, but this was solved by replacing the SSD. (You can see my other thread)

I havent had any problems since then, but suddenly last week I got one new BSOD and i decided to use system reatore in case it was just a glitch. Then I got one more today.

Can anyone help me? I am really not that good at analysing dump-files myself..

AMD Overdrive; also in EasyTune6 for Gigabyte motherboard [br] Known BSOD issues in Win7
Driver Reference Table - AODDriver2.sys

AMD OverDrive Removal - Step 1:
AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems.
Please uninstall all AMD/ATI video stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program
Then, download (but DO NOT install) a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from (in the upper right corner of the page)
Use this procedure to install the DRIVER ONLY: ATI video cards - DRIVER ONLY installation procedure - Sysnative Forums

If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Uninstall". Reboot for changes to take affect.
Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.

If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.
