Windows 7: BSODs and Random Reboots plague my pc

14 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 7 64


sorry for digging out this thread, but i have a very similar problem. New PC since last week (hardware in my profile), it runs great for a good week till yesterday, first bsod. Happened 3 times till today.
Iam also running Firefox and Zonealarm and analyzed the minidumps, but i have no idea, maybe you can help.
Looks NetIO.sys is the guilty one. Because i installed the original mainboard drivers a few days before the first bsod, i reinstalled the original realtek network-drivers, hoping they overwrite the mainboard drivers (cant deinstall them?) but still bsod.

I also scanned for Maleware, nothing found. I did
"sfc /scannow", it said damaged files found, but could not repair everything. I dont now how to handle the cbs.logfile, its 7 MB in Size 0.o.

Hopefully you can read more out of the minidumps!

Thanks in advance and sorry for my poor school english ;]

Try a repair install for those damaged files. That might fix the problem.

Windows 7 64

Edit a few days later:

I was wrong. Today, again same BSOD. That makes me cry. Now i killed zonealarm. Lets see if it works.
Edit again:
Ok, i fixed it. The reason was Zonealarm, so deinstall it and no BSOD anymore *dance*

Ok thank you, looks like i fixed it :)

The "motherboard_driver_lan_realtek_8111_w7" driver was responsible, maybe he does not work probably with windows 7 64 (and Zonealarm?).

So if anybody else recieves this error while using the above driver with a gigabyte board (maybe in combination with zonealarm), deinstalling the realtek driver and using the standard windows network driver should work.

Thank you and have a nice, bsod-free day
