    Good to hear, that's definitely good news. As far as Windows updates and drivers are concerned it can be relatively hit and miss and sometimes not provide very satisfactory results. I always prefer getting the actual device drivers from the computer manufacturer or the actual device manufacturer to make sure Windows hasn't installed something generic with limited functionality. Anyway thanks for posting back and I hope your problem is gone for good.

    this one is a 0x101 error which invariably involves the CPU or other hardware like mobo, This happens when the processor is either dead (unlikely) or it is deadlocked - by resource contention. This is usually caused by a driver having an exclusive hold on an object when another needs it and waits.... then times out :(

    windows debugger didn't name a driver and did fail to load the symbol
    also unfortauntely none of the drivers listed in the crash recorded a time stamp :confused:

    debugger is no help at this time on this crash as it was like everything else involved in the crash completely stalled and unresponsive :eek:

    I suggest you unninstall AVG completely and use MSE instead for debugging purposes :)

    make sure you have all critical data backed up and maybe let's force the driver that's causing the 101 and hope we can catch it in a bluescreen dump file ?

    good luck and keep us posted :razz:

    I thought I had uninstalled avg..I ran the utility trouble suggested to completely remove it.

    Ok, how safe/unsafe is this Driver Verifier?

    safe enough to identify the driver causing your crashes / unsafe enough to lock you out of your system and mean only recovery option is a reinstall ?

    google it :confused:

    if you make sure you have access to another PC you can always come back and ask here if your stuck :razz:

    well I tried it, restarted my computer, and it wouldnt boot. Turned it off then on again and tried to go into safe mode, but it came up with a startup recovery screen instead.
    edit: I just tried it again and it booted this time. Now I guess I just wait for the crash. Would it be brought on by any specific software? I usually run windows live sync, but it just got updated, so I can't run the version I was running before. (it won't let you run an outdated version)

    hopefully yes we will get repeated bluescreen crashes that create .dmp files identifying the faulting driver ?

    well this is another clock timeout 101 error so something is hanging up your processor ?

    no module was loaded so the driver wasn't named :frown:

    is driver verifier still running ?

    can you please unninstall Utorrent and if you need a replacement use Bittorent :)

    what antivirus and or third party firewall are you running ?

    I have ms security essentials for anti virus. Yes driver verified should be running still. I figured I would leave it on in case that dmp didn't help. I can uninstall utorrent if u think it will help.

    Win7 64 system is also having multiple BSODs

    Home built system about 2 months old with Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3LR motherboard, intel q9550 cpu, Corsair XMS3 TW3X4G1333C9AG 4GB Dual Channel DDR3 RAM - - PC10666, 1333MHz, EVGA Geforce 7100gs 256mb ddr2 pcie, Western Digital SATA 250 drive, Win7 home premium 64 bit oem.

    I get a BSOD at different times during startup. Sometimes before it makes it to windows, sometimes after I log in. The last 2 times was only the first startup of the day. It even happened once while logged in safe mode. I've reinstalled windows on 3 different drives, ran memtest86+ & windows mem diagnostic with no errors, removed and reinstalled memory, vid card & hard drive to ensure proper seating. The system & cpu only run about 39 degrees celcius.

    I don't want to just start buying more parts ie. vid card or memory. I've attached a zipped folder containing .dmp files from the past 4 days since reinstalling windows.

    I could really use some help.

    Boborinko, can you goto realtek and update your network drivers to the latest and see if that stops the bsod. Don't use the ones on windows update as they have caused many problems.

    I am happy to help and run an analysis on your .dmp files if you start your own thread for individual attention or it just gets confusing ;)

    well my computer has "shutdown unexpectantly" twice since the 18th, but no dmp files since then yet. sigh. no other options than just waiting and hoping it catches it?

    I am haveing contenuas crashes of My I7 as well reading this I am thinking it mite be my video card. this is a brand new sestem which I built and have never had this kind of problem. it seems to be nither hardware or software and both at the same time. after several crashes on it I installed linux Mint 7 64 bit and had no crashes which indicates software but then I tried installing windows 7 on it again and cant even get through windows 7 without crashing it. I then striped all of my ram down to 2 gigs of ddr 3 and tested them one at a time but it crashed on all 3 single sims which makes my ram being defective unlikly. I then thought mabie I got a bad windows 7 disk pulled one of my hard drives from my I7 and installed in in my AMD k4 which I also built and the disk installed without insadent. which tells me that it is eather motherboard or cpu or video card. I am seriosly considering pulling out my Nvidea from my amd K4 and testing on the I-7 but I hate robbing parts from one machine and trying it on another machine if I dont have to. I have read issues with the Power ports for the video card I will check that as well bye the way I am also running an OCZ 500 watt power supply.

    500 Watt PSU is a little on the low side for the set up you have. Do you have another one you can test the system with.
