    BSOD when coming out of sleep / sometimes other random tim


    Okay, I've fought and fought on my own, and I can't solve this one.

    The BSODs are all random, some of them are the same, but most of the time they are different.
    The BSODs happen mostly when I come out of sleep mode, but not always. Also it will come out of sleep mode just fine 10 times, and then crash once.



    Hardware:
    G1.Sniper Z97
    i7 --4770K 3.5
    MSI N660 TF 2GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support ...
    2 - G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX
    2 - Intel 335 Series Jay Crest SSDSC2CT240A4K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Running striped)

    Hi,
    Use following links to download drivers, because *some* of your drivers do not match latest version numbers, some of your drivers are never than that currently offered by official download page.

    So I'm just assuming you either use some driver download program or you gathered them by other means.

    Gigabyte related drivers and BIOS update for Intel socket 1150
    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - G1.Sniper Z97 (rev. 1.x)

    Nvidia display driver has been *probably* caught few times corrupting memory:
    NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce Game Ready Driver for Grand Theft Auto V WHQL

    Eset antivirus driver has been caught several times right before the crash reading from invalid memory addresses, therefore it deserves to be removed from system, at least while we track this issue down.

    SonicWall VPN causes troubles if other drivers such as Windows built in VPN driver is present, therefore you can consider removing it temporary.

    Note: Some driver setup files might not work if newer driver version is present, therefore present version needs to be removed first by using device manager.


    Apply all of the above carefully, and share results or new dumps in case of new BSOD's.

    You're awesome, thanks for the help.

    Update:
    ESET - Removed
    BIOS Updated
    nvidia driver updated
    Sonicwall VPN software removed.
    I also removed OpenVPN software just in case.

    Had a terrible time getting the BIOS driver installed. Everytime I opened qflash I would get a BSOD with gdrv.sys and verifier crashing the system. I had to use a different method to update BIOS - I have all of these applied, we'll see what happens.

    Hi,
    There are no dump files generated for BSOD's you mentioned above. ( latest is 4/18/2015 )
    I don't know in which time zone you are so I'm assuming your event log matches the time of your post/description above:

    there is a lot of events from 5/1/2015:
    Detected unrecognized USB driver (\DRIVER\VERIFIER_FILTER).

    Most probably VmWare virtual machine.


    I'm not able to figure out what process runs gdrv.sys really:
    The gdrv.sys file is a driver file associated with Gigabyte motherboard and graphics cards. The file executes a process known as Gigabyte Tools. The file appears to cause BSOD and crashes the system...
    Source
    The best way to make sure that this driver is causing troubles is to run driver verifier against him by following these steps:

    Right click on start button and click on Command prompt (Admin)
    type verifier and hit enter
    choose "Standard Settings" and click next
    choose "Select driver names from the list" and click next
    find gdrv.sys in the list and enable check button for that driver.
    click finish and reboot PC

    If this driver indeed does something bad it will be caught.

    Perform these steps and report any new findings
