Ok i downloaded the BIOS download from a differnet computer and strted it on my VISTA. and then my computer BSOD. I think everything is fine right now but what happens if my computer happens to BSOD in the middle of the BIOS update?
Hi, as loda advised, running a BIOS update when you're in the middle of BSOD hardships is not recommended because if you happen to unfortunately BSOD during a BIOS update, you run the risk of bricking your BIOS, and then we'd be in even deeper water than we are now.
I checked the directions for the BIOS update, and it seems there are only directions for updating the BIOS through Windows itself, and not the BIOS... so we're going to cross out a BIOS update for now.
I've checked your dumps, all of which are 124 hardware bugchecks... but I'm having pshed!_WHEA_ERROR_RECORD_HEADER symbol errors, so I cannot get much info :banghead:
However, what I can see is that there's two different process crashes going on here, and it's happening too much to not be a coincidence, at least we can hope.
For example.. one dump, the process crash was - avgidsagent.exe
in the next - AAWService.exe (This is the main Ad-Aware service that runs in the background, and is considered the "central hub" of the program. It runs the Real-time Protection (RP) engine, as well as maintaining the Definitions, Whitelists and Blacklists.)
in the next - AAWService.exe
and then - avgidsagent.exe (AVG Identity Protection Service)
My theory is that both of these programs / services are clashing. I would for temporary troubleshooting purposes recommend the removal of both of these programs. At this point, it would help us know whether or not your issue is software of hardware (given we're dealing with 124 hardware bugchecks).
