    BSOD probably caused by ntoskrnl.exe


    Hi folks - having some trouble troubleshooting a BSOD on a Lenovo Yoga 13.

    BSOD screen had dpc_watchdog_violation listed, but when running the minidump through Windbg I got to this:

    Code:
    Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe ( nt+14dca0 )
    Wasn't quite sure where to go from here seeing as that ntoskrnl seems to be a core part of the OS. Have attached the package from SF Diagnostic Tool in the hopes that someone can help!

    Thanks - any help/tips appreciated.

    Thanks - out of interest, what clues pointed to Hamachi?

    I had problems with hamdrv.sys back in January (BSOD with MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS) so had uninstalled.

    Since then Hamachi drivers were updated/fixed according to Logmein but perhaps it wasn't as fixed as they thought... just interested in what gave it away!

    FYI and for others having Hamachi BSOD trouble, here's where they claimed to have fixed it:

    Hamachi version 2.2.0.114 - LogMeIn Community

    They have had issues for years and years and years. I also notice the admin trying to deflect blame from their products and he even says minidumps can not help. Stay far, far away from this product.

    I suppose he is attempting damage control, but there is only one way to successfully do that: hire a software engineer that knows how to create drivers that do not crash whole entire systems.
