Windows 7: Multiple BSODs pointing to many diferent drivers

Multiple BSODs pointing to many diferent drivers

Hi, this post is about the same machine described in Translating memory adresses in windbg output , but I started a new thread since the title doesn't reflect my actual concerte, please forgive me. Until now, many diferent BSODs appeared at my windows 7 home premium pc. I've already tested the memory (memtest86+) and disk (WD utility and chkdisk), and also performed a clean install using updated drivers for the nvidia chipset, as suggested by a forum member. I'd like to pinpoint wich sort of activity is triggering this BSODs since they appear randomly, so I can, by changing hardware components, determinate which one is causing them. Thank you very much

Asus PCProbe Utility
Driver Reference Table - AsIO.sys

ASACPI.sys Thu May 14 07:25:17 2009 (4A0B72FD)
Asus ATK0110 ACPI Utility (a known BSOD maker in Win7 and Win8). Also a part of many Asus utilities (Win8 versions available from Windows Update as an Optional Update - but check Asus first!)
Driver Reference Table - ASACPI.sys

Sometimes drivers remain, not completely uninstalled. Follow this tutorial for complete removal of drivers of the particular program: How to Clean Left Over Driver Files with Driver SweeperUse Revo Uninstaller to uninstall stubborn software. Opt for Advance Mode while uninstalling which allows you to remove leftover registry:-Make scans with the following:

Kaspersky TDSSKillerESET online scanner: Run Disk Check on your Hard Drive for file system errors and bad sectors on it:Upload a screenshot of your hard disk using Crystal Disk Info:Make a hard drive test from the hard drive manufacturers website:Test your Hard Drive with SeaTools:Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Memtest should be done overnight.
