    General BSOD Question not related to an issue


    To any BSOD analyzer out there I was curious how you interpret the errors from your dump file and figure out what drivers cause a problem? I'm trying to learn and understand how you come up with the answers you do on the BSOD forum.

    Awesome information Nuccii. Thank you for this, it has shed some light on my situation some more. But the problem I have seems to be a little deeper in the software. I hate digging around like this, I was wondering if there are any more advance troubleshooting tools for BSOD issues? I have used the even viewer, WinDbg 64, WhoCrashed, and I have run BlueScreenViewer. Please any and all information is appreciated as I like to learn, plus i want to solve my issue on my own if possible. Thanks for your time everyone.

    I'm afraid all that is left that I may give you is this: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...(v=vs.85).aspx

    Perhaps some other member here could offer you more.

    Okay thanks for you help. It is greatly appriciated I will have a look at it and read up. I do have a thread up with my problem and waiting on someone to review it. But I've narrowed it to somewhere dealing with this....

    The Open Procedure for service "BITS" in DLL "C:\Windows\System32\bitsperf.dll" failed. Performance data for this service will not be available. The first four bytes (DWORD) of the Data section contains the error code.

    If you've ever seen that problem before please let me know. Ive googled it and it lead me into the regedit which I'm not a fan of as I know you can turn a computer into a paper weight real fasting messing around in there.

    Thanks Again.

    When playing with the Registry, always create a back up (Export) before doing any changes. If there is a problem you can Import the version before you made changes.
