Windows 7: Multiple BSODs

I don't think you need that gdrv.sys. I googled it and I even got a balance equation "gdrv.sys=BSODs" lol...
I even heard that some people got it by Easytune6, however, I doubt it though coz I tried to install it on my computer and I dont get gdrv.sys at all. So easy fix should be reaname the file gdrv.sys-->gdrv.bak for example

Try to see if it works

Regard,

While downloading a game through steam and browsing the news on steam browser i got another BSOD.

Just out of curiosity, if i have bad memory, will that cause random crashes? I don't know how memory works but since games runs for hours but my browser barely work does diffrent apps use diffrent part of the memory?

Very well done. That should eliminate obsolete drivers as a potential source of conflicts.

Bad memory can cause random BSOD's; but other things can also corrupt memory when the RAM itself is not bad - for example obsolete drivers, poorly written software, third party ant-malware programs, etc. That is why we have to check things individually and do our best to eliminate all potential conflicts. Most dump analyses are not cut and dried with the dump pointing to the an exact cause. Thus, a lot of try this and try that is involved.

I will look at the latest BSOD.

This dump is another stop error code A. It does not tell us much. It blames win32k.sys.Win32k.sys is a Windows system core file and is very unlikely to be the cause. It just gets blamed when the dump doesn't pinpoint an exact cause.
Quote:
STOP 0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Usual causes: Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility
I notice this stop error occurred after you updated your mouse drivers. However, the outdated gdrv.sys driver was still on your system as was ESet.

Just a matter of thought. What is your cpu temperature after the crash? To check this after the crash the system will restart enter bios and check the cpu temperature. As you said.. the system can run games for hours.. that's because they rely heavily on the GPU and not the CPU.. Now Steam is a CPU hog.. so if your CPU temperature is relatively low then I would have to say move onto your ram temperature.

Additional Notes:
Turn off Hardware Acceleration when viewing youtube videos. The quickest method is to right click the video and uncheck Enable hardware acceleration. This way we can see if it is the graphics card getting "hung-up" where windows can not recover and forcing a BSOD. Also, make sure your flash is up-to-date.

David has a valid point. Excessive heat can cause BSOD's. You can download Speedfan and check your temperatures during heavy usage.

Never seen my CPU temps go above 40C. Downloaded speedfan and it shows even lower temps.

Ive tested my memory one at the time. Slot 1 and 3 doesnt seem to work at all, they are the spots for the third and fourth stick so maybe thats why.

Memory one gives 1 error in slot 2 and no errors in slot 4.
Memory two gives no error in slot 2.

Anyway, since im stupid and paid for eset its a pain to remove it.
Basically i switched place of my 2 memory sticks. If i get another BSOD i remove it with the tool. Im in such regret paying for ESET. I barely can install games while its active. Files missing...

Gdrv.sys has been renamed to Gdrv.bak.'

I hope i see no more BSODs, i rather have bad memory than a bad motherboard

Thanks for the update.

It looks to me like you have two bad memory slots and possibly one bad memory stick. Good to see you renamed Gdrv.sys.

Let us know how your system runs and post if you get another BSOD.

Going to get back to you guys on this matter in a couple of days. So far i can watch videos on youtube and browse the net without BSOD.

I dont understand how switching position on my memory can make things more stable? I mean its the same memory sticks. And why would i get a memory error with one of them and not the other in the same slot?

Thanks a bunch for the superspeedy support!!!! Would be hilarious if this was fixed Before I even get responce from the guys at the store ^^,
