Windows 7: Completely random BSODS

Completely random BSODS

Ok so, my computer has been doing some really random BSODs. I want to post my minidump files but for some reason the folder has a lock on it and I can't even compress them into a zip, let alone look at them in MSDbg. Whenever I try to open them I get an 'access denied' error.

Any tips on this? I can't seem to find any way around this when I google it and I really want to find out what's causing these.

C:\Windows\Minidump

Compress to .rar the latest few crash dumps, upload to Rapidshare and post a link here.

Winrar should do it. If not

takeown /f command on the folder and/or file(s), with elevated command prompt.

takeown /?
if you need help with that.

Did that. It still won't let me open the individual files. I can see myself having permissions for the folder itself as a user, but the files within the folder do not list me as being able to access them under their individual security tabs.

Nevermind. I just copied them to the desktop and was then able to access them. The 2 files with 102809 are obviously the most recent.

It's your usbaudio.sys triggering these errors. Update your chipset drivers from motherboard manufacturer and also update the driver for any usb devices that create sound in any form...

i.e. usb audio "sound card" or usb audio interface you may be using.

nvlddmkm.sys is also problematic to your system. Update your NVidia card driver from NVidia.com to latest.

After doing those things, run a Windows Update.

Ok I updated the chipset for the motherboard. The USB audio device I'm using is my headset. It also has analog options so I can try plugging it into my soundcard with just those instead of plugging it into a USB port. I have the latest nVidia drivers already installed. The most recent ones that are Windows 7 x64 compatible were on October 5th. I'll keep checking for a newer release.

Very well. If you remember, let us know how your system is behaving after some time.

Forgot to mention that the USB headset was a driverless device on its own. Is there, perhaps an updated USBAudio.sys out there? Should I also attempt to use the USB version of it since I've upgraded the chipset drivers?

USBAudio.sys might be a generic Win 7 driver. Dunno.

If your system isn't running a cracked activation, you can run this command:

sfc /scannow from elevated command prompt. It will check on all your system files to see if they are corrupt in any way and fix it if they are.

If system is running crack, it won't be any longer after that command. If you have custom themes where you have replaced files, it will revert back to default files. Just a heads up in case.

Upgrading chipset driver was good. Use your system in whatever way you like. That's why you have it. Gotta fix it if it's still broken, heh heh.
