Windows 7: BSOD at different times, cant pinpoint the cause (Kernal Power 41)

BSOD at different times, cant pinpoint the cause (Kernal Power 41)

Hi i have been getting a weird BSOD and there is no distinct line during the blue screen that i can give you as it seems to be a little different to many BSOD's

Here is some of the information i can give you

At the time of the particular Blue screen which was 10:18 PM i got the following errors in Event Viewer under System Tab, there where no errors at the time under Application tab

Critical 6/23/2014 10:18:15 PM Kernel-Power 41 (63)
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Error 6/23/2014 10:18:19 PM BugCheck 1001 None

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000007e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff8800f2dcdbb, 0xfffff880054aa228, 0xfffff880054a9a80). A dump was saved in:

Error 6/23/2014 10:18:19 PM EventLog 6008 None
The previous system shutdown at 10:17:16 PM on ‎6/‎23/‎2014 was unexpected.

I also have a minidump file of it in my Minidump folder but i cannot attach it here because i apparently dont have permission to do so even though i went through the properties to allow full access

EDIT: ive uploaded the minidump now

Welcome to the forum scocuzza,

Please upload your MSINFO32 file.
  • Please go to Start and type in "msinfo32.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
  • Save the report as an .nfo file, then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
  • Also, save a copy as a .txt file and include it also (it's much more difficult to read, but we have greater success in getting the info from it).

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff8800f2dcdbb, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: fffff880054aa228, Exception Record Address
Arg4: fffff880054a9a80, Context Record Address

Your BSODs were caused by the latest ATI Drivers, you may consider reverting to an older version of the driver to see if that helps.

To perform a clean install of a driver, follow this tutorial:Run the System File Checker that scans the of all protected Windows 7 system files and replaces incorrect corrupted, changed/modified, or damaged versions with the correct versions if possible:Scan with Kaspersky TDSSKiller:ESET online scanner: Run Disk Check on your hard disk for file system errors and bad sectors on it:

Hi thanks for your reply, after posting my BSOD problem here i updated my amd driver to a different version (the newest beta 14.6) and have yet to get the blue screen *fingers crossed* because i had a feeling it had something to do with that driver so hopefully i pinpointed the cause

im having trouble uploading the msinfo files because i the text file i save ends up being 1.42 MB which is to large to upload so i uploaded a txt file of dxdiag if thats of any use
