    750gb +128g ssd(super raid)
    ram 32gb
    os: windows 8
    ...

    and i got BSOD like 5 times until now while playing league of legends and each time with different error msg (like IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP)

    and i want to upload the Dump File but i dont know what type of write debugging information i should use (is it the Kernel memory dump or the small memory dump) anyway i upload the default one which is automatic memory dump

    Hello m4d,

    Let's start with a little bit of maintenance. Please remove Android Bluestacks from the system.

    Next, run Windows Update & install any updates available.

    Hi m4d,

    I bought the same laptop myself about 3 weeks ago. Mine was the same processor and came with a 1TB data drive and a 384MB RAID 0 across three 128MB micro SSD drives. Nice computer, but it's been nothing but problems since day 1 - all driver related BSODs.

    The two major device driver issues I had revolved around the Killer Network e2200/Killer-N 1202 drivers as well as the Intel 4600 graphics chip drivers. The Killer network drivers tended to be all of the place with the BSOD codes, but happened most often when putting a lot of load on the NIC or WLAN. Installing various games over an internet connection (especially through Steam) would result in repeated BSODs. The BSODs caused by the Intel 4600 were often pointing to the GDI or Aero functions in the stack trace.

    This is what I did to resolve my issues (hopefully, I'm still anticipating an anoying BSOD).

    Installing the latest Intel driver from Intel's website (or Microsoft's site) seemed to correct BSODs related to the Intel graphics chip. The MSI drivers pre-installed on the laptop and the ones currently on their website are not the latest and will cause problems at random times. The good thing was these were infrequent.

    I have tried various driver packages from Qualcomm to correct the Killer Network driver issues. Not a single one works. The issues seem to revolve around the filters that tie into the Network Manager. The Network Manager is the custom service and application that throttles the available network throughput by tying into the TCP driver (tcpip.sys). It causes too many headaches and becomes rather unstable under high loads. So, some of the people over at the MSI forums have creates a custom driver package (slightly old by a few months) that does not include any of the custom Killer Network Manager software.

    You can find it at https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=174228.0

    You need to uninstall the Killer Network software first. Basically, uninstall the two Qualcomm installations in the add/remove programs. Restart the laptop. Locate the devices (now no longer working) in Device Manager. Manually update the drivers using the package found at the MSI forums. Restart again and connect to your wireless network at this point (unless you use LAN). The bluetooth driver is also bundled into the Killer Network software. When you uninstall the Qualcomm software, your bluetooth will be replaced with the Microsoft generic adapter which seems to work.

    The windows update site does give you an optional update to update the Microsoft generic bluetooth adapter with the latest Qualcomm driver without the network manager. However, I don't want to jinx anything just yet and I want to leave the laptop like this for now until I know that these drivers are stable.


    Another note - DO NOT upgrade the laptop to Windows 8.1. The system will repeatedly BSOD randomly even with the latest BIOS and EC firmware updates. Several of us have tried and pretty much the consensuses is that we had to restore the laptop and stick to Windows 8 until the Intel and Qualcomm drivers become more stable.

    The most recent crash points to your wireless card. Open Device Manager and disable the wireless. Use a wired connection to test if this stops the system from crashing.

    Attachment 34639

    As you can see from the picture, the driver is attempting to use IRQ 4294967289. Most computers only use IRQs up to 15. There is clearly something wrong with the driver.

    Test the system with only a wired connection and post any details you find.

    Hi m4d,

    It sounds like one of the filters from the network manager is still active. Download the 64-bit version of the killer cleaner found at Driver Downloads | Qualcomm Atheros, Inc. and the latest drivers for e2200/wireless-N 1102 (64-bit).
    Manually uninstall the drivers I had you install. Reboot.

    Run the killer cleaner. Reboot.

    Install the latest drivers. Reboot.

    Uninstall the latest drivers from the Uninstall Programs in your control panel. Reboot.

    Run the kill cleaner again. Reboot.

    Install the drivers I had you manually install.

    I realize that it's a pain, but wireless-N driver is causing the crash. This is usually because one of the filters installed by Killer Network Manager is still left behind.

    I still haven't had any crashes for a while now. However, I will never say never.

    ectech - FFFFFFF9 is the standard IRQ to be used for the Qualcomm Atheros Wireless-N 1102. I'm pretty sure it's a virtual device that is sharing the same hardware along with the Qualcomm Atheros e2200. Which is why, both wired or wireless will cause the same issues when put under high load.

    My personal opinion is that it is a design flaw either in the driver or the device itself. To make it worse, Bigfoot (the original design manufacturer) was acquired by Qualcomm and has since shut down the website as of the 1/1/2014. This is why killergaming.com has been down for the past week. Hopefully, Qualcomm provides a fix.

    What I have noticed is that the driver wants to manage the Windows TCP/IP stack for all applications. So programs that have their own process management for network activity seem to be at higher risk in causing a problem with the drivers. A perfect example of this is either chrome.exe or steam.exe. Both of which use an internal task management and memory system that split the multiple downloads into separate tasks (in the case of chrome) or threads (in the case of steam). Which would explain a lot of the wacky BSODs I used to get (KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL) all of which would point to either the killer drivers themselves or the tcpip.sys.

    It's actually a common theme with various MSI laptops once you start putting them through their paces. You can try RMA'ing the laptop, but since it's intermittent and usually happens only when the NIC or WLAN is put under heavy load - I think you will get the laptop or replacement in the same condition.

    Because this laptop cost me $2600 - if it happens again to myself, I will be removing (or disabling) the onboard LAN/WLAN and installing my own. I really don't want to be reduced down to a USB wireless network adapter.
