Drivers Causing Multiple Bsod


In addition to this issue, i also get "windows explorer" (explorer.exe) and sometimes " internet explorer" (iexplorer.exe) "has stop working errors" and whenever i watch tv (be it clear qam, ota or analog cable) it goes bsod after about 3 minutes. All my devices/latest drivers are recognized by 7 rtm (ultimate) based from the device manager window and their properties and i have all the updates including the latest installed. I am running out of ideas and is getting ready to go back to xp unless someone here can help me figure this out. By the way, playing mp3's also crashes my system.

Multiple Bsod With Ati Radeon Hd 5870 10.4 Drivers

I am currently running windows 7 professional 64-bit and i updated my ati card last week with he current 10-4 drivers. Ever since then, i have been getting bsod's left and right. My minidump folder is filled with crash reports. I have reinstalled windows 7 8 times now formatting both my hard drives and have tried to revert back to the previous drivers only for it to bsod again. Have
Done a memtest and all memory is intact, testing one stick at a time.

Cleaned out ram bay, unplugged everything and replugged, making sure everything is squared away and not loose. The crashes have been completely random and have applied the memory leak hotfix as well to no effect. I tried to attached my crash dumps to this post but it may not work, so if i could get some insight, i would greatly appreciate it.

Usb Devices - Flash / Hard Drive Causing Bsod

I am completely stumped as to why my flash drive (verbatim 16 gb) and my external hard drive both seem to be causing windows 7 to crash. At first, it only seemed to happen when i tried to save a word file to the flash drive (so i thought it was an issue with that device) - but when i tried to transfer files to my external hard drive, i got another bsod. Oddly, i have no trouble opening and saving to a onenote notebook file on the flash drive - but i don't know what that means.

Multiple Bsod

So as of today i have been getting multiple bsods i have no clue why, it happens when i am doing basic every day things such as browsing the internet, i have not gone anywhere suspicious of malware or anything like that so i do not think that is the case but it may be. Any suggestions? Log below. Additionally the bsod does not look how it should, it has solid black on the sides, i am assuming that is just a change of resolution because the bsod wont go as big as my screen but i could be wrong. If you need any more information please ask.

Ati Radeon X300 Graphics Drivers Causing Laggy Flash Video Playback

Ati radeon x300 graphics drivers causing laggy flash video playback in all web browsers, under new windows 7 x64 install. I am having a problem with an ati radeon x300 driver and just wondered if you might be able to help?

I basically did a clean install of windows 7 on my pentium 3. 0ghz with 3gb ram and everything worked great. However, i installed an updated video driver for my ati radeon x300 and installed photoshop cs4 and also a reg entry which adobe offer to force enable hardware acceleration when the option is not available in your display adaptor properties.

Anyway since i installed cs4 and ran the new drivers and reg entry flash video playback within all my browsers has suffered. It is ok when small, but when full screen it drops frames and is slow and laggy. Another thing i noticed is 720p youtube playback is very laggy and before it used to play fine.

Anyway i booted in xp (i have a dual boot system) and tried to run flash videos and they did the same. However in my xp config i can lower the hardware acceleration which i did (by 1 notch) and it fixed the issue.

However in windows 7 & i have this new driver installed which doesn't seem to support the changing of hardware acceleration. I am pretty sure if i lower it it will be fine but i can't get to the setting. I tried uninstalling the card and installing the older drivers in safe mode but it wouldn't let me. Does anyone know how i can lower hardware acceleration so i can get these videos playing back properly?

Using Multiple Video Drivers

I have a dell studio slim with integrated video into my motherboard. I currently have two monitors hooked up using my hdmi output and my vga output, but i recently bought a third monitor and a low profile video card (geforce 8400 gs) so i can expand my desktop to the new monitor. I tried following the instructions and i got the new monitor to work but then the other two monitors don't work at all! I really hope that i can get all of my monitors to work simultaneously. Can anyone please help me?

Bsod When Installing Nvidia Card Drivers

Important info:
Graphics card: geforce 7950 gx2
Ram: 2 gigabytes
Hdd: 400 gigabyte sata drive
Processor: amd athlon 64 fx-62 (dual core, 2. 8 ghz)

I have a shuttle pc, and am running the latest bios, not sure the version number, but i just flashed it several days ago when still on xp.

Okay, here goes. I just installed a clean copy of windows 7 x64 pro over windows xp. It was a major pain, i kept getting a blue screen error when setup was 'completing'. It was a stop error for file nvlddmkm.sys, which after some research, i believe it to be a nvidia file. I could not get win7 to install.

Finally, after hours of research, i finally got it to work by deleting the nvlddmkm.sys files during the 'expanding windows files' step. This was done via command prompt (shift f10). I believe i found the steps for this process here.

Continuing, i'm finally booted into windows, and i'm assuming that i am running the basic windows vga drivers. I ran windows update and attempted to install the drivers for my 7950 gx2, reboot, 'windows is starting', bsod. Boot into safe mode, uninstall drivers, install drivers from nvidia, reboot, bsod.

It seems that no matter what set of drivers i install, after i reboot, the computer will say 'starting windows' and then will get the bsod. The code is 116, and the associated file is nvlddmkm.sys.

I know that during the install process that i deleted the nvlddmkm.sys file from two locations. I believe one was in the system32 folder, can't remember the other location. Currently, this file is not located in the drivers folder (c:windowssystem32drivers).

Can you guys please help me in getting my graphics card drivers installed?  No matter what i do, i get a bsod after a reboot and before windows loads. I have tried several versions of the driver but to no avail. I believe i might need to copy the nvlddmkm.sys file to somewhere. I do have a nvlddmkm. Sy_ file that is packaged with all the drivers, but i believe it needs to be expanded?

Random Bsod, All Updated Drivers, Firmware And Bios

Before thursday and the release of windows 7 x64 i was running xp pro x64, i did a clean install of win 7 home premium x64 and was faced with random bsod every hour or so. I updated all of my drivers, bios, hardware, everything i could think of and it still continued to happen. I gave up on win7 x64 figuring it was a driver issue, so now i am back on xp pro x64 and i am still having the random bsod pretty frequently.

Update Causing Several Problem

I updated my windows 7 rc build 7100 yesterday for the first time since mid-november. The reason i waited so long for this was because last time i updated windows, i had the same problems as i am experiencing now. The downloading and installing of the updates goes fine, but when i restart the computer, it takes 5+ minutes to take me to the desktop after entering my user information. When the computer finally starts up, aero is disabled.

During my first log-in after the update, all the programs i had pinned to the taskbar disappeared, and i had desktop icons on my screen which hadn't been there in a few months at least. When starting up any web browser, all my favorites are gone, as well as any customization. I can't start up windows messenger because i get error code 84cc0020. Restarting the computer restored the icons to the taskbar, but the lack of aero persisted. After using system restore to go to a point before the update, all that changes is that i no longer have the updates installed, while all the other problems remain.

Updates Causing Screen Cutoffs

Recently i installed 17 updates and after the computer rebooted (and updated some registry files) my screen had been resized to not display ~2 inches from both sides. It shows everything but just doesn't use the whole monitor. I tried changing the resolution but many resolutions were out of range (when they weren't before).

Some of my system specs:nvidia 9800 gt graphics card asus m3n78-vm motherboard amd athon ii x2 245 processor via high definition audio card westinghouse lcm 22w3 monitor (22") i have installed nvidia driver version 258. 96 from either 197. 45 or 15. 49 (not sure which), with the only noticeable change being that now i can change my resolution to 1600x900 on the nvidia control panel and it changes the resolution but chops off the same amount of area (therefore not letting me see the left or right-hand 2 inches of the screen, including the start button or time). Changing the resolution through the windows screen resolution window still gives me "out of range. "I have checked for bios drivers and mine are up to date.

Flash Causing Internet Browsers To Hang

This has been an ongoing issue and i am so sick of it. Flash content is constantly causing any internet browser i use to hang. My main browser is firefox. It mostly happens with flash video like on youtube. Sometimes it works fine for a while and then all of a sudden when i go to play a new video the browser will hang. When the browser hangs i will no longer be able to watch videos unless the computer is restarted. When the browser hangs it also affects windows too.

I can't even play videos on wmp, it would hang too. It only happens if the browser was hanged. I always get the hang errors when it happens in firefox but i have no idea how to use them. I have made dump files too when it happens but i do not have a clue how to use them. (Something about signature files or something)

Urlmon.dll Causing Programs To Crash

Since installing cumulative security update for internet explorer 8 for windows 7 for x64-based systems (kb978207) about a week ago (or shortly after then) i started having problems with lots of programs crashing or refusing to start all all. All of the ones that give a meaningful crash report pinpoint urlmon.dll as the source of the problem. This only seems to be affecting the 32-bit version of urlmon.dll (in the syswow64 folder), since i can run ie 64-bit just fine. I can only assume that the file somehow got corrupted during the process of installing the update.

How can i revert the installed update? It's not showing up in the view installed updates window. Failing that, (or if it turns out that's not the cause of the problem) how can i get a clean copy of the file from my install cds? I tried booting up the cd and getting a recovery console, but using the 64-bit cd the syswow64 folder was pretty much empty (stands to reason), and using the 32-bit cd it wouldn't give me a console at all (on account of this being a 64-bit install).

If anyone has any ideas, that'd be grand. I tried sfc /scannow, and that confirmed that there is a problem in urlmon.dll, but it said it was unable to repair the file. I'd rather not have to do a full reinstall over a single file, especially since this is a relatively new install anyway.
I've included the crash log from internet explorer (32-bit), but other programs are giving similar results.

Security Patch Is Causing Pc To Crash And Not Boot Up

I have windows updates set to the recommended automatic so i didn't really anticipate a nightmare when instead of clicking the shut down option like normal, i pressed the power down option that allowed the latest windows update including the new security patch to be installed. When i tried to power up my laptop again it would only boot for a second before abruptly switching off. It did this several times with the switch off so abrupt that i initially thought it was a power issue, but when windows repair came on, it held power fine ruling my first thought out.

The first attempt to repair did not fix the issue as on restart the laptop again randomly cut off during booting up. After more attempts to switch on, windows repair came on again but in this case after ten minutes of "attempting to repair" it came back with a result that it could not. I did however get to the option to do a system restore which thankfully appears to have worked. I am however faced with the problem of windows once again wanting me to update my system. After what happened earlier i am not keen to do so. Is there any way around this so that this update and patch will not install or that can be installed without the nightmare of it causing the laptop to repeatedly crash after. Operating software is vista.

Flash Player Causing Blue Screen Error

I have recently bought a new system. Everything runs perfectly except for one critical problem; i can't view flash videos or anything played in a web browser by flash player. Animated flash advertisements will load to the first couple of frames, i will hear a bit of noise and then a brief 1-2 second system hang and straight in to a blue screen. Same goes for youtube etc, might see a frame, if that, a brief noise and hang/blue-screen. This has occurred since i have purchased the pc.

I have attempted to fix the problem by updating my graphics drivers to the latest, updating flash player to the latest, updating sound drivers to the latest.

System:amd i5 750 ati radeon 5870 realtek audio i am just viewing the blue-screen dump file, there is no bug check string, however it seems to indicate an amd/graphics driver causing the conflict.

Idt High Definition Audio Codec Driver Causing Problem

Idt high defintion audio codec driver causing problems with windows 7 after upgrade. Driver upgrade is not working, due to "digital signature". At some point after upgrading to windows 7 my sound driver began giving me problems. It would lock up any program that attempted to use sound, even simple sounds such as the "ding" sound in windows explorer.

I attempted to upgrade my driver to it's most recent version through the hp website, but after installing the driver, it says that my "digital signature" cannot be verified. (Code 52). Hp offered no support, neither did the manufacturer of the driver, idt.

One Pc With Multiple Users

I have one pc with multiple users (with text-based passwords) oneguest account turned on (with a blank-password).

I want to share some files, some folders, and some libraries between different users but exclude guest users. I have not been able to do it with any of the share schemes that seem to always address computers on a network and not multiple users on a single pc.

What tools do i as the administrator use to share selected files, or selected folders, or selected libraries between selected user accounts on the same pc? Everything i tried in the "share" tools seem to fail for some reason that i cannot fathom. The entire set of files was copied over from a failed xp pc to a new windows 7 pc with specific files copied to non-public folders for specific users.

I know how to use the public libraries that all users can see, to include guest.

Multiple Taskbars

This isn't a question, but rather a suggestion for a possible improvement in one of the upcoming sps. It would be fantastic if windows 7 had multiple task bars. I, and many others, use multiple displays. It would be nice to be able to minimize and restore windows in the display they're currently resting in. Not to mention, the window shake thing is nice, but it would also be nice to just clear off the desktop of the active display instead of all the displays.

You know what i mean, windows team?  Make the displays more modular. I'm not complaining, just requesting a minor (to the end user) enhancement to the way the desktop(s) work.

Multiple Monitor Support

I really love windows 7's feature of being able to drag a window to the left or right top half and then the window resizing to that half side. However, with a dual monitor setup, this is impossible to do on the inside halfs of the monitors . I have 2 monitors 1 and 2. On the right half of 1 and left half of 2, i cannot drag and resize to those areas. I can on the left half of 1 and the right half of 2. The above is copied from another post that i could not reply too!  I am curious if there is a planned fix for this?

Problem In Multiple Monitor

I got a really strange problem. I tried few days ago to connect a multimedia projector to my laptop that was working on windows 7 but it showed the display on only the projector and not on my laptop. All attempts to detect external monitor or projector filed. Then i boot the pc again with the projector being plugged out and first tried to detect the projector/external monitor. But it resulted in a very strange thing. Now i cant see on my laptop if i run win 7 normally but under safe mode (and win xp) it shows display.

I can see win 7 display only (not on my laptop) if some external monitor or projector is connected. I tried to select the multiple display option but for me it results in nothing. Help me please and tell what exactly to do i really like this win 7 miss to use it on my laptop.

Multiple Instances Of A Printer

When i converted from vista to 7 a hp5l printer attached to lpt1 showed up as attach to lpt3. I have tried to do an add printer specifying lpt1 but it add an additional instance of the printer attached to lpt3. On a second attempt to ad  the printer it again creates an instance connected to lpt3.

From devices & printers only the 3rd instance appears as  hp5l (copy 2). I can delete the one labeled copy2 but the other two do not show. How can  i delete them and start  over. I know there ar still twom instance since adding an additional one always creates copy 2 and if i run belac advisor it shown two instances of hp5l connected to lpt3.

Support Multiple Monitor

One wonders if the lack of adequate multiple monitor support on vista will be rectified in windows 7? Additionally if the audio issues with recording aspects for professional musicians will mean we will still either have to keep xp on a separate computer or in dual boot mode? Any information from microsoft will be appreciated.

For example - i can play a dvd on xp and stretch it across 3 monitors, i can use cubase 2, 3, 4 and 5 on xp and have individual mixers, edits and vst's in separate windows. On vista the only version that does not crash at some point is cubase 5 studio. With games, on xp i can get them to stretch over 3 monitors. Vista hardly plays any game older than 18 months and won't stretch jack - xp's compatibility mode works much better. Will windows 7 enable this or do i have to use virtual pc xp? The only way i have managed to get wallpapers to stretch is with ultramon.

Yes i have a quad processor with 8 gb ram, 2 tb hdd space, 1gb nvidia graphics card and no issues with anything except the operating environment. And last microsoft - while it's only aesthetics, will the dreamscapes etc - aero - etc if desired by end users to have installed, be available as extra downloads for the non ram conservative users?

Multiple Printer Configurations

My hp laserjet p3005d (usb) had several different configurations in win xp. All were numbered such as "1 hp 3005 tray2 duplex" so that they could be called up with macros (winbatch) and also so that i didn't have to be reconfiguring the printer numerous times a day. In windows 7 i have not been able to install additional printers using the p3005 driver. I've tried downloading different drivers but win 7 eventually eliminates one of the configurations.

Multiple File Selection

I upgraded to win 7 and have had no problems with it until recently. I used to be able to select multiple files using.

Shift click
Control click
Check boxes
Drag window

In the usual manner. Unfortunately this is no longer working. It tries for a second or so and then de-selects the files itself !I have tried sfc /scan in an elevated command prompt with no errors returned. I have tried running a script called single-file-select which fixed this problem in vista (as posted on another forum). I have tried resetting the folder options to default. Unfortunately none of this has worked and i an tearing my hair out.

Multiple Audio Devices

Like many people, i have a television connected to my pc as a secondary monitor (extended desktop). My television is connected through the hdmi port on my video card, which includes high-def audio. I also have a pair of desktop speakers next to my primary monitor, which are connected via the analog line-out jack. I'm having trouble finding a satisfactory way to specify audio output to the correct pair of speakers for the display i'm using. I've set-up the volume control options to display both available devices, and they are both enabled.

Ideally, what i'd like is for any window placed on the extended desktop (tv) to automatically send audio to the television speakers, and for application windows on the primary monitor to send audio to the line out (desktop speakers). If it can't be done automatically, can i specify which audio device each window uses individually? Or, is it possible to have both devices playing simultaneously, with the option of muting one device or the other?

What i'd like to be able to do, for example, is watch a movie on my tv with sound through the television speakers, while my wife plays a game or surfs the web using the desktop monitor with her audio routed through the desktop speakers. If this cannot be done through windows 7, is it likely that audio or video drivers would have this feature? Is there third-party software or hardware that can do this?

System info:

Pc - dell inspiron 580
Os - windows 7 home premium
Video  - nvidia geforce gt 220
Audio -    realtek high definition audio

Multiple Os Install For An Application

I have & need multiple installations (xp/vista/win7, etc). I often have a program/package (e.g office 1993/office 2007) which needs to be installed on multiple oses. I know that i can use virtual pc to install everything in a virtual installation, but is it possible to use another drive (for example an external drive visible to all oses) to install the program just once (one installation instead of one per os, thus saving space). Obviously the registry would be held locally for each os installation, but does the physical installation need to be too? How is this affected by the program data folder in vista/win7?

Multiple User Profiles

I have a new toshiba laptop with win7 home premium. I have set up an admin account and my user account, with the guest account turned off.

There are multiple user profiles under the user file on the hard drive: administrator, public, steve, steve_2 and steve_2. Steve_laptop.

There is nothing in the pictures, documents and video files under steve.

There are music and documents, but no pictures under steve_2.

There are music, pictures and documents under steve_2. Steve_laptop.

There are also two listings under homegroup - both listed as: steve (steve_laptop).

Not sure what i did for this to happen, but i'd appreciate any help to clean up this apparent mess.

Renaming Multiple Files

I have a couple hundred pictures from my web cam that i was trying to upload onto a website but i want to upload them by order of date and the way they are named when they were created doesn't go alphabetically. So instead of uploading picture1, picture2, picture3, etc it uploads as picture1, picture 10, picture 100, etc. The batch rename on windows 7 renames them in the same 1, 2, 3 fashion. I would like to rename them as 001, 002, 003, etc. Is there any way i can do this all at once or even manually without having to right click each file and selecting rename?

Installation In Multiple Systems

I have a total of 4 computers (2 desktops and 2 laptops) in my home belonging to myself and my brother. I want to purchase windows 7 ultimate and what i want to know is whether i can install it in all of my 4 computers, that is can i install it in more than one computer. Please understand that i am not talking about multiple users but multiple systems. Of course it will be used for only domestic purposes and not any commercial or business purpose. Would i face any problems if i try to install windows 7 ultimate in more than one system?
