Windows 7: BSOD when dropbox syncs files

07 Jul 2014   #1

Windows 7 64 bits
BSOD when dropbox syncs files, dmp incl [ntoskrnl, hal.dll, nwifi.sys]

Hi all,

I have a Sony VAIO VGN-FW41E. I'm running windows 7 64 bits. Whenever I upload files to dropbox, my laptop often bluescreens. It doesn't always happen, but then again sometimes happens 10 times in a row.

Here is a scenario:

- I'm copy pasting 20 photos into my dropbox.
- First photos syncs correct, bluescreen on second photo sync
- Computer reboots and automatically continues syncing the rest of the photo's
- Photo 3 and photo 4 sync correctly
- Then on photo 5 bluescreens again

The problem here is, you can't really stop the synching, so when the computer reboots it often blue screens straight again after logging in because the syncing then continues.

What have I done?

I have done memtest, no memory errors were found.
Computer is completely spyware free (used malwarebytes)
Used CCleaner
Reinstalled dropbox

I have included 3 minidumps of the last 3 crashes at this link:

They all happened within a 20 min timeframe. I really really really hope someone can help me out!!! Dropbox is a very important tool for me. I am not 100% sure the reason is dropbox but it only happens when using dropbox, so I guess its dropbox...

Thanks in advance.

Hi jacovg91.

Only crash dumps are not enough. Click on the button below ....

It will download the DM log collector. Right click on the application and run as administrator. It will generate a .zip file on your desktop. Upload the .zip.

Can files in Dropbox be indexed (for Search)?
I could swear that I've done this (i.e. indexed files in my Dropbox) but I just did a search and got zero results which I know is wrong. And when I went to the dialog to add locations to be indexed there doesn't seem to be a way to add anything other than an ENTIRE harddrive. Is there any...

After aquiring a cooler master hyper 212 plus, I found that even it was too big to fit along with corsair vengeance high profile ram. This leads me to have to mount it so that the fan, which is trying to suck in air is facing the exhaust fan at the back rather than the intake fans at the front. If...
