    Windows 8 Consumer Preview


    Hello, people.

    When I boot up my laptop running W8 Consumer Preview, I keep getting this BSoD before the lock screen appears. The computer restarts and then I can log in as usual.
    I think it may be my Antivirus, but I am not sure.
    My logs are here: link
    I hope this issue gets solved soon and my thanks in advance.

    Best regards

    No, it's not the antivirus.

    It's your SIS driver. Update it if at all possible:

    0: kd> lmvm sisgrkmd
    start    end        module name
    9283a000 928b2000   SISGRKMD T (no symbols)           
        Loaded symbol image file: SISGRKMD.sys
        Image path: \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\SISGRKMD.sys
        Image name: SISGRKMD.sys

    Since this may not be able to be updated since it may be the latest, a good motherboard bios update is recommended in addition here. Set Optimized Defaults in it then save too, after.

    I made a new post because it is separate from the above:

    1) Update Realtek HD Audio driver from Realtek's site:

    RTKVHDA  RTKVHDA.sys  Mon Jul 20 07:15:20 2009 (4A6451C8)
    2) Update Realtek lan driver from Realtek's site:

    RTL8187B RTL8187B.sys Tue Mar 24 03:03:18 2009 (49C885B6)
    (Type in 8187b in the download search, after clicking on Downloads link on the main page. Then look to software link.)

    3) Update for sure if possible also:

    SiSGB6 SiSGB6.sys Thu Feb 26 04:41:41 2009 (49A663D5)
    SISAGPX SISAGPX.sys Wed Jan 24 02:01:26 2007 (45B70446)

    4) Update Synaptics (there is update):

    92893000 928c9380 SynTP SynTP.sys Thu Aug 27 21:59:32 2009 (4A973A04)

Morning all, every time I start my PC from power off I get the DPC_WATCHDOG_VILOATION BSOD, but only then, I never get it during normal use or during a warm start. Could you nice folks have a look at the zip for me and analyse what driver is at fault? Thank in advance
