Blue Screen Of Death


Well-Known Member
I get a BSOD almost every session. The computer (Windows 10 Home Creators - not Fall) re-boots almost instantly but I just catch the message "Page fault in non-paged area. stdriverx64.sys
Is there an easy fix that does not involve editing the registry.

Probably caused by : stdriverx64.sys ( stdriverx64+4f23 )

Looks like it's this Sound Tap driver. I would either remove it and the software or get it updated. The driver is from 2014.

stdriverx64.sys appears in C:\windows\system32\drivers and also in C:\program files(x86)\NCH Software\Sound Tap - both 33.7 KB. Do I delete the Sound Tap one?

Thanks. I found the program sound tap, which I do not need, and uninstalled it. This automatically removed the driver so hopefully problem solved
