BSOD caused by driver dxgkrnl.sys when i'am sleeping

I everyone,

Hi KmE,

Welcome to the 7forums.

Daemon tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause for BSOD's.
Please remove Daemon Tools and run the SPTD pass through remover.
  1. Uninstall Daemon Tools
  2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
    • Double click the executable to open it
    • Click on the button shown below



If the button is grayed out, like in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can close the window

I recommend to uninstall the ASUS software, it is known for causing BSOD's as it is poorly coded.

As the crashes are 0x116(VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE) the problem is specified to the graphics.
Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia

Let me know how it goes :)

Ok thx axe0 !

I will uninstall the Asus software and my video driver and i will do a clean installation. I have uninstall Daemon tool and there is no more SPTD on my system. But I really need that kind of software, specially now as i am starting a formation in networking. I will need to mouth a lot of iso while i am working with vmware. Is there a better way to do it ? I let you know if the problem persist. Thx again

The SPTD driver is with Daemon tools not the only driver causing BSOD's.
SPTD is a driver developed by another company and used with some programs, but the company that has created Daemon tools has developed a few other drivers that are also causing BSOD's.

You could with .iso files right click these files and extract them, you'll only have to find the right executable file in the extracted folder to do the exact same thing as when you mount it.
Only difference is that with mounting you don't have to search for the right executable.
