Hi everyone,

A while ago I started getting BSODs which became more and more frequent and now I cannot even log on sometimes before it crashes. I have tried every possible method to resolve this, but to no avail. Before I reformat, I thought I would see if anyone here could figure it out.

I think this all started around the time I got a Windows update, but I can't say conclusively. I had not made any changes at all recently, so it was a bit of a surprise that this started happening. The BSODs are usually of the "driver less than or equal" type and will happen even in safe mode.

Let me know if more details are needed.

I've attached the minidumps. Thanks in advance for the help.

Jeff

The majority of these were Related to atapi.sys IDE/ATAPI Port Driver from Micorsoft. It is part of the OS. You also have some really old drivers from as far back as 2002.

I would do two things. Run the update readiness tool and update to SP-1 and update the older drivers.



Ensure you install the correct 64 or 32bit option for your system)

Download the System Update Readiness Tool (64bit)
Download the System Update Readiness Tool (32bit)

How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference http://www.carrona.org/dvrref.html
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: http://www.carrona.org/drvrdown.html
