Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

I've been getting this bluescreen error intermittently for the past few months. The computer crashes while it is in sleep mode.

I have run driver verifier, and Driver Booster. I've checked and updated all of my drivers, yet I'm still getting crashes when I put my computer to sleep. I'm sure this is a driver issue, but I cannot pinpoint what is causing the crashes.

Thanks for your help

Hi anthonym94,

Welcome to the 7forums.

There are no recent dump files in the attached zip file.
If you are using a program like Ccleaner please stop using it while troubleshooting.
This because programs like Ccleaner remove dump files that are needed to troubleshoot.

Or configure Ccleaner to not remove dump files:

Please remove items from the startup
How to remove items from startup - Windows 7 Help Forums
These programs could interfere with the boot process giving you trouble.

Please remove any installed driver from Driver Booster 2 and remove Driver Booster 2.
Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.

Please check {windows partition}\windows\minidump and check if there are any recent dump files saved.
Please make sure your pc is configured for small dump files How to configure minidump | Windows 7 tutorial

Please try the following:
  • Open an admin command prompt
  • Copy/paste "sfc/scannow" (without quotes) and press enter
  • When it finished reboot your system
  • Open again an admin command prompt
  • Enter sfc/scannow again
If sfc/scannow does NOT say "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation", please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.

Thank you for your reply.

I did a system restore to undo any driver changes.

sfc/scannow did not bring up any errors.

Attached are two dump files from C\Windows\minidump

The dumps you find in the Minidump folder are the same as in the previous uploaded zip file and I cannot read them.

Please remove any program you don't know and / or don't use.
Personally, I would remove Advanced SystemCare 8 and the Gigabyte software.
Both are known for causing BSOD's.

For now it is waiting for new crashes
