Windows 7: Blue Screens and Random Reboots

You are right; the same ASACPI.sys problem. I am going to ask for help with this to see if there is something I have overlooked. Keep watching this thread and we will get additional input.

Yes, you leave your computer running while Prime95 runs. That is something you might want to do overnight.

Hey guys.

Looking at the latest dump points out something interesting. It was still caused by ASACPI.sys, but with the process AiNap.exe. This is an ASUS motherboard utility, and is possibly conflicting with ASACPI. Try removing the AI Nap utility (if installed).

Additionally, here are some out of date drivers that might be causing problems:

DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION (c4)
A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught.  This  is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by  the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this  driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and  0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.
Arguments:
Arg1: 00000000000000f6, Referencing user handle as KernelMode.
Arg2: 0000000000000184, Handle value being referenced.
Arg3: fffffa800804cb30, Address of the current process.

In addition to what Lordbob suggested, and his advice is spot on, Captain Jack Sparrow suggested that you rename ASACPI.sys to ASACPI.old because it just a Motherboard Utility and to uninstall all the Asus utilities as well. And that concurs with what Lordbob is suggesting.

This is the great thing about this forum. There are so many knowledgeable folks here that if one of us can't come up with a solution, someone else can.

Don't worry about the secdrive.sys driver. Yes it is old; but it is a a Windows system driver and there is not an update for it. You can safely ignore it.

After you try these, please post back and let us know.

I really do appreciate all the help, and time spent to assist me

I uninstalled AI Suite which are all the Asus utilities that I had, I then rebooted in driver verifier mode and I didn't get a blue screen on startup (currently on verifier mode as I type this)

I was going to rename the file afterwards but I'm going to trail my computer like this for a while and post back

However, one thing that is bugging me is that shouldn't all the clean installs I have done eliminated any driver problems? Because in all my previous installs I've never had AI Suite installed, it was just recently that I decided to install it because my computer fans were getting loud (I'm still not sure why). Could all these clean installs lead it to being a hardware error? The thing is, I have changed my PSU, Graphics Card and Hard drive since I first got the PC, and the RAM got through many passes on memtest too.

So basically, I had blue screens before AI Suite was installed, so I'm not sure if this is the main problem if you see what I'm saying. But I'll run the PC like this for a while and check if I get BSoD

I'm thinking about running Prime95 overnight.

Oh no!
I've still got driver verifier running, and my PC just rebooted itself without leaving a blue screen!

Edit: Ok, just received a blue screen after writing that message

It seems that firefox caused the problem but I'm not quite sure what to do about it :/

Firefox may or may not have caused it. FF may just be the victim. It is another 101 error - hardware, or drivers, or both. I do see that ASACPI.sys is still there.

Recommend you rename ASACPI.sys ASAP and see what how things go from there.

Just received a blue screen, the ASACPI.sys had been renamed too

Edit: I just received another blue screen!

However, this one was due to driver verifier it seems! Hope we are getting closer
