Windows 7: Ntoskrnl.exe BSOD after new Windows 7 install

17 Jan 2015   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

If it is still the same I/O NTFS error, what should I do?

Also, could the GPU error become an issue?

Like I said before, until we find out the cause, everything could be an issue. The graphics driver could be a cause or it could be a victim. Lets try 2 things. Please go to the Motherboard's web site and install any updated drivers, espevcially chipset and sata drivers. Next run check disk Disk Check.

I checked all my drivers- they were up to date.

I had already ran chkdsk about a week or two ago and it said it had no problems

I also ran windbg and checked one of the dmp files

Here is what came up

I made a tally of sorts of which errors come up under BUGCHECK_STR to see if I could find a

It's a Windows core process and will not cause a BSOD, unless it has been altered, corrupted or in some way changed. Unless I am mistaken it is the process that starts many of the Windows background processes that run in the background with Windows, among other things.
Stop code F4 in my experience is usually a hard drive, although there are several other things that can cause it, like Anti Virus, bad drivers and some software, even ram. Yours has been fairly consistent a code F4.
Microsoft Security essentials has never been know to cause a BSOD that I have ever seen.

If you would like to try and see if there is an obvious driver that is causing it. Create a manual restore point before doing anything else. It may be your only way back. The link of how to do it is below. Make sure you have the installation disk, just in case. When setting it up, sort the drivers by provider, and enable all drivers not provided by Microsoft. Don't enable any drivers from Microsoft.

information   Information

What is Driver Verifier:
It puts stress on the drivers, and tries to make the faulty driver crash the computer. It is designed this way, to attempt to trap the offending driver.

What you will notice:
It will tend to make the computer rather slow and sluggish because the drivers are being stressed.

Before enabling DV, make sure you have created a system restore point before enabling Driver Verifier. make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

I started running driver verifier at around 9:30 last night.

So, if it is a driver causing the issue, a crash should happen in the next 24 hours?

Should I turn if off if it has been 24 hours without a crash?

Fingers crossed.

You can, but I prefer you leaving it on for 24 hours of actual use, not just idling.

So I did end up getting a BSOD - I didn't see it crash, I just came back to my PC after leaving it for
~15 Min and it said Windows did not shut down correctly.

The dmp file is attached, as well as a picture.

It said it was caused by ISCTD64.sys.


Also, am I good to turn driver verifier off?
