BSODs

  1. Hi guys!
    Hope you can help me. I´m frequently getting BSOD:s in various windows apps. The funny thing is that the system is stable when I´m gaming and pushing the limits of the hardware. At first I thought it was a memory issue but memtest x86 showed that there was no problem. Now I am suspecting the DDR3 of the videocard. Could someone please look at my minidumps and try to figure out whats wrong...

    Alright where do I begin? SPBBCDrv.sys a corrupt driver for Symantec.

    LMouFlt2.Sys= a corrupt Logitech mouse driver

    kmixer.sys= is kernel audio mixer of Microsoft Windows

    SYMTDI.SYS= The process Norton Internet Security Filter or Network Dispatch Driver belongs to the software Symantec Security Drivers by Symantec Corporation

    SYMEVENT.SYS= Check here seems like another Symantec related driver issue.

    win32k.sys= points to faulty ram, if you have more than one module remove one at a time and see if the crashes still occur but do this after you uninstall any Norton products you hace on your computer. They are causing the majority of the issues. Also reinstall (if you have one) your Logitech mouse drivers, or remove them if you no longer use that device. A few more minidumps pointed to memory corruption. Sometimes faulty ram can pass some of those memory testing programs.

    DOes it have to be the system RAM that is broken? Couldn´t it be the RAM of the videocard? How can I test this?

    I´ve uninstalled Norton and reinstalled the mousedrivers. I´ve also removed kmixer.sys

    The BurnIn test shows that the memory is fine. The system has been stabile since I removed norton. Hopefully it will stay that way. Thanks for the interpretation of the minidumps. BTW which program do you use to parser the .dmp files?

    Glad it's working.. I use WinDbg... You have to add this symbol file path to make the program check the latest crash data from Microsoft

    SRV*c:\symbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols


    Assuming you were unsure??
