Windows 7 Home Premium after Windows XP crashing
« on: February 20, 2012, 04:54:27 PM »
So I go back in time to 2 years running an HP with Windows XP. Sometime ago, my HD crashed and I replaced it with a new one. Convinced by HP and BB, I also purchases a Windows 7 Home Premium CD (since I never had back up software).

So after a successful installation of the CD, the following errors occurred every day

On Wed 7/20/2011 9:20:52 PM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\072011-17425-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x7FD00)
Bugcheck code: 0xF4 (0x3, 0xFFFFFA8004908B30, 0xFFFFFA8004908E10, 0xFFFFF80002BD9F40)
Error: CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that a process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time

In talking to both HP and MS, both cannot fix the issue and recommend that I purchase a new PC or send that out for repair.

Any ideas ?

First thing is to check the memory.

Have you ran any memory test on it yet?

Next thing to do is a bad sector test on the hard drive with the windows chkdsk.

Also we need to make sure you have the current drivers for everything.

How often does this bluescreen happen?

Thanks for the post ... I did a chkdsk and reported no errors on that ... Earlier on I started the computer in safe mode with networking, and it seems to work .... to early to tell though .. as to the other question as to how often it crashes .... it crashed every day without fail ...

I do not know how to update all drivers at one go, when I checked the drivers they all (just the ones I randomly checked) stated they were working fine ...

Do windows update and see if it offers any drivers.

IS there a point when it crashes? Such as sleep mode? Drivers can cause a lot of crashes.

So check for video, chipset and sound drivers.

In safe mode it does not crash. Seems it crashes in sleep mode when booted normally. Checked all drivers chipset audio and video. All show driver is up to date.

Safe mode runs with the minimum need to run windows including the minimum drivers.

So in deducing that a driver is what's the issue. The million dollar question is identifying that driver. Is there a way to scan em all in one go and update change or bypass the missing driver ?

Not easily. I normally just go and manually hunt them all down. Video chipset and sounds are the most common.

The chipset is the driver for the hard drive and such. So hunt those down.

Also did windows update list any driver updates?

Windows update did list a couple of drivers didn't really read them. But checked video and hard drive drivers and tried to do an update on them. Said driver was updated ... Since I've done the windows auto update let me wait till morning to see if it still crashes and revert
