Windows 7: All of my games crash with c0000005

12 Oct 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
All of my games crash with c0000005

I am about to do a fresh install of Windows 7 to try and fix this but I thought that I would at least look for other options first, for learning of course. Also I don't honestly believe it will help.

So this is the full situation:
- Every game I run crashes with c0000005, on rare occasion with 40000015
- Steam will not download anything for more than 5 to 10 seconds without dropping the downloading to "Update Required (Not Queued)"
- I have never been able to install NVIDIA drivers using any methods other than fully manually

Odd things:
- Unigine Heaven/Valley can run forever on maxed settings
- Wasteland 2 runs forever without issue (the only game that works)
- Guild Wars 2 "crashes" almost immediately, but never actually stops running and continues to tell me in the background that it has crashed again about every 2 to 5 minutes, also c0000005
- I have never had a BSOD (unless I did it purposefully, and none were useful)
- Both the Steam download issue and the NVIDIA driver issue remained after removing Windows 8 and installing Windows 7

What I have done so far:
- I updated my BIOS
- I have clean removed my video drivers
- I have used the 3 most recent NVIDIA drivers and the ASUS provided NVIDIA driver (always a brutal, manual install)
- I have updated all other drivers on the machine
- I used a clean boot
- I ran Driver Verifier which only identified an Avast issue (Avast has since been removed to no effect)
- I tested my Memory with memtest86 and Windows Memory Diagnostic
- I swapped out all my RAM to check each stick
- I error checked my HDDs
- I ran SFC and the log is massive (700KB) and I have no idea what to do about the millions of entries
- I have run Prime95 with no issue
- I have run 3dMark Benchmark and gotten an appropriate score for this machine without crashes

So that is all that I can think of at the moment. I mentioned the Steam download issue and the NVIDIA driver issue because maybe they are related. I have further information on both of those issues if needed. If anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them. One last detail: ASUS recommended I take the laptop in for servicing, but I am nowhere near any servicing and cannot easily send it in.

My laptop (unmodified other than Windows 7 and 2nd HDD):
Intel i7-4700HQ

Can you post your BSOD logs into this thread using Option One of Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

I believe the dump file was deleted by windows or some other program so Option One failed to grab one. I have a copy lying around but it don't think it will be useful. Either way here is Option One and a dmp file that I saved.

Edit: I guess I could have just put the dump file copy into the minidump folder before I started option one... oh well.

Well since there were no ideas, I reformatted and reinstalled Windows 7.

No success. Still crashes with a c000005.

No ideas? I've been very busy and haven't had the spare time to check your files. Before I do go any further, where did you get your Windows media from for the clean install? Is it still a vanilla install or have you added any programs/drivers?

Not that his is relevant now as I have no idea what you have installed on your system any more, but Avast was being blamed:

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.
