Windows 7 Enterprise x86
clean install,
HW +-1.5 yr in my possesion bought new
OS installation: 01/02/2010

CPU Name Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9550 @ 2.83GHz
Nvidea GeForce GTS 250
Asus P5QC
Zalmann 800watt


Since a couple of weeks I've been experiencing a lot of dificulties with my system.
BSODS with all different reasons (or so it seems), not able to boot because of, bad patch, bios reset itself :)s), just not getting through the boot sequence..when I get through it usually works fine untill the next bsod.

Thought it could be the ram so i took out 2 of the 4 gig, still bsod, put in the other 2 gb, still bsod..ran ram scans, checkdisks, all nothing..

so i hope you guys can help me, I would be very gratefull

If I forgot any info, please let me know.
Thx in advance

Re: blue screens and trouble booting

Hi,

One driver that looks out of place here is DRHARD.sys - related to this program which you should uninstall ASAP as it does not appear to be compatible with Windows 7.

Also uninstall Avira as it is a possible cause.
Avira Uninstallation instructions (follow these exactly): http://www.avira.com/en/support/kbdetails.php?id=135

Install MS Security Essentials --> http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

Then reset the Windows Firewall to its default settings -
START -> type cmd.exe -> right-click -> run as administrator -> type netsh advfirewall reset press enter
If the above fails to fix the problem then run Driver Verifier -> http://www.techsupportforum.com/f217/driver-verifier-windows-7-and-vista-bsod-related-473665.html

Regards,
Reventon

Re: blue screens and trouble booting

Hello, doing all the suggestions, don't know if it works though, I'll let u know.

Question, does my windows firewall need to be on?My router's firewall is very strictly configured so that i don't have to use the windows one, I did it 5 or 6 yrs with my xp and never any problems.

I don't want to be obnoxious but I prefer to ask if it's really nesc. to use 2 firewalls?But if you say it's a must..so be it.

Let me know please, and thanks in advance for helping me out :)

Personally, I use both Windows and my Router's firewall. It is your call in this case - you know how secure your Router's firewall is.

Re: blue screens and trouble booting

Hi,

This one is blaming disk.sys - a Microsoft OS driver. So, ignoring the unlikely possibilty of a corrupt OS I think we are looking at a hardware problem here.

Code:
[font=lucida console]wdcsam.sys   Wed Apr 16 20:27:02 2008 (4805B856)[/font]
That driver is part of a piece of Western Digital software - remove it as it is a) Disk related b) Too old for my liking.

Definitely sounds like a hardware problem to me. Try updating the BIOS again.

If the BIOS update fails to fix it - this looks like a Hard Drive controller problem, and therefore to fix it you may have to replace the entire motherboard.

Re: blue screens and trouble booting

The Western Digital 2008 device driver pre-dates Windows 7 RTM and will continue to cause problems for you.

Usually, 3rd party drivers for external PnP USB drives are for backup utilities and are not necessary for drive utilization.

Regards. . .

Uninstall those drivers and don't use the external drive for a while. Then see if you still get BSODs.

Re: blue screens and trouble booting

ok..didn't uninstall driver but disconnected ext HDD and also performed the bios update (which improved things also) and no more BSOD's...

came to the conclusion i can still use my hdd but only for short periods of time, then i don't have bsods (i know its dirty, but hey i need that drive)

But thanks a lot for solving my issue folks, i owe you a debt of gratitude, and i learned a couple of things on minidumps so ty, this topic can be closed :)

Re: blue screens and trouble booting

I would not put any data that you want to keep safe on that external drive if I were you.

Glad to hear that the problem is solved.
