So recently bought a new PSU, Motherboard and 8GB of more RAM. I thought the BSOD's in the past were caused by a crap PSU however I bought an 80+ Corsair one and upgraded to a Z77 MPOWER motherboard. please can someone point me in the right direction have 4 crash dumps and only turned it on yesterday!

You must rid of this old WinPcap driver file. While helping others, I was informed that is part of Intel Smart Connect, so go ahead and uninstall that. Reboot. See if the driver is then gone.

Code:
0: kd> lmvm WPRO_41_2001
start             end                 module name
fffff800`03a97000 fffff800`03aa3000   WPRO_41_2001 T (no symbols)

Should update these to newest, if available.

Sorry about the slow reply, didn't think I'd be out that long!

I've been trying to remove WPRO_41_2001.sys, I've had a look online and seen that a method is to install the latest version however that has failed to work. So i was thinking is there a way to do it manually?

****JUST REMOVED THE WPRO_41_2001.sys FILE*****


Also updated the athurx.sys driver but cant find a newer one for athwnx.sys.

Had another BSOD as well on startup, want me to upload the minidump? Seems to affect me almost definitely on a cold boot!

Yes, you can remove it manually - but - if you do not uninstall the Intel software that owns it, it will keep re-installing itself at each boot.

So, you can delete the driver, delete the reg key for it, then place a dummy file in its place.

Here's how:

Delete this file -

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\WPRO_41_2001.sys

Then open Regedit and locate its key (might take a little effort, depending on if it is named similarly, as WinPcap, or something else even) - delete the key.

Here is the location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services


Then, make a .txt file with Notepad and save it as WPRO_41_2001.txt. Change the .txt to .sys after saving. Move it to the driver folder location C:\Windows\System32\drivers, then set the Security on it to not allow write access to any account.


Reboot and see if that file is still 0 kb or not. If it is, great then.

Test the machine like this, and if it bsods (probably not) - then you can upload new crash dump(s).

Good luck.

So another day, another BSOD! I have uploaded the latest minidump for you guys to have a look at and see if you can shine some light on this very annoying problem. Like I said previously after one BSOD after a cold boot things are usually fine!

Uninstall Realtek HD Audio normally from the programs list. Delete the driver with Device Manager if still there. Reboot.

If this file still exists, delete it: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\MBfilt64.sys then delete the corresponding subkey in Regedit here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services

Install latest HD Audio codec driver.

Uninstall whatever CD/DVD drive related software you have that owns this driver:

Code:
0: kd> lmvm pxhlpa64
start             end                 module name
fffff800`007e7000 fffff800`007f31a0   PxHlpa64   (deferred)             
    Image path: \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\PxHlpa64.sys

    Translations:     0000.04b0 0000.04e4 0409.04b0 0409.04e4
If you don't know which it is, delete the file manually then delete the subkey in Regedit for it, like before. (Your DVD/CD drive will stop working but that is easy to fix and we will do that next, if you did this method.)

Update wireless driver from here:

Code:
0: kd> lmvm athurx
start             end                 module name
fffff800`038fe000 fffff800`03ac6000   athurx     (deferred)

Drivers for Atheros AR9271 and Windows 7


If you still have any crashes at all after these things, then check your RAM settings with CPU-Z to make sure that the memory is set well. Compare SPD tab to Memory tab.

I will do the above the only problem I have is a BSOD will only happen on a cold boot so will have to turn the computer off for a while before it will happen again. Does this give you any ideas what it might be?

CPU-Z looks good.

Athurx.sys has not been updated yet. Use Device Manager. Right click the Atheros wireless. Choose Update driver software. Browse my computer. Let me pick. Have disk. Browse.

Now navigate to where you extracted the new driver and double click on the .inf file. Click ok and continue until done.

After that is complete - if a bsod still happens - it is down to two things.

1) A stick of memory is defective (or motherboard defective) - If this is the scenario, memory is much much more likely. Suggest Memtest86+ to be ran overnight to see what it shows.

2) Some faulty hard drive. The crashes seem to be 0x24 a lot. Suggest some disk diagnostic utility to check on it/them.

If you have removable storage, then remove until issue sorted.

For Atheros, it might be easier for you to install as I said above, by using my attachment instead.

So I ran Memtest and on a cold boot i got loads of errors, however after that I had none. This has lead me to the conclusion I most likely have a corrupt stick of RAM. Can this be fixed or will it have to be returned. I read once you can up the voltage of the RAM and this can sometimes fix this issue?

***UPDATE***

I also updated that driver! thank you!

Contact Crucial and asked them to replace your RAM with a matched set and they will do well for ya.

You're welcome and when you get new RAM, enjoy.

(Upping voltage on RAM is really for overclocking. If you are receiving errors at stock speeds and voltage, that's something that needs to be replaced.)
