    Windows 8


    Yesterday I updated my computer via windows update. After updating, a few hours or so, I played some GTA, when I closed the game I received this error. I again opened the game to replicate the issue but it did not reoccur. Although that's unsurprising bsods rarely adhere to pattens.

    Just as a note I've not had a bsod in a few years, so I'm fairly sure the update has had an argument with something.

    Any help greatly appreciated, thank-you.

    Hi Russs & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    I have analysed your dump files and below has been provided an analysis of the same for informative purposes :-

    Arg1: 0000000000000000, Object type of the object whose reference count is being lowered
    Arg2: fffffa800a684ec0, Object whose reference count is being lowered
    Arg3: 0000000000000002, Reserved
    Arg4: ffffffffffffffff, Reserved
    The reference count of an object is illegal for the current state of the object. Each time a driver uses a pointer to an object the driver calls a kernel routine to increment the reference count of the object. When the driver is done with the pointer the driver calls another kernel routine to decrement the reference count. Drivers must match calls to the increment and decrement routines. This bugcheck can occur because an object's reference count goes to zero while there are still open handles to the object, in which case the fourth parameter indicates the number of opened handles. It may also occur when the object’s reference count drops below zero whether or not there are open handles to the object, and in that case the fourth parameter contains the actual value of the pointer references count.

    Below is a list of 3rd party drivers present on your system -

    Kindly follow the below points -

    1. Please rename the driver "ASIO.sys" by doing a system wide search and then renaming it. If you have any ASUS Bloatware installed, kindly remove it as well since it is known to cause problems.
    2. If you have not installed lots of updates yesterday, you could try uninstalling the recent ones and see if the problem is still there or not.
    3. In case you still face the problem, kindly turn on Driver Verifier according to this **GUIDE** and then let it crash your system for a few times. Once you have seen some crashes, disable it and re-run the Diagnostic Utility and upload the freshly generated ZIP File.

    Although that's unsurprising bsods rarely adhere to pattens.

    That is not true. There are lots of patterns out there. Even if you are getting a very random bug check code, that is a very good indicator of a lower level/hardware problem

    Let me know how it goes ^_^
