  1. Hey Rt 44 im back. So he has barely been using his PC ever since he started BSODing all the time. Recently it wont even start up at all. It just blu screens and restarts. He can't even boot safe mode. Here is a SS of the BSOD now. Before you thought it was a RAM issue and here is a link to our previous thread..

    Okay, the error as per your jpg. is 0xD4: SYSTEM_SCAN_AT_RAISED_IRQL_CAUGHT_IMPROPER_DRIVER_UNLOAD bug This indicates that a driver did not cancel pending operations before unloading.

    The driver cited is the Windows OS driver pacer.sys. Now the thing with OS drivers is that they are usually too general to be of much diagnostic help. They more so point out that there is a problem rather than being the problem itself.

    Does he have his Windows Disk?

    Sure does man, system repair? Or full format and re-install?

    So if I read you correctly then the Windows Repair now allows his system to fully load, correct?

    If he gets BSOD's after this repair attach the minidumps to your next post

    Yeah that fixed the issue of it BSODing before windows login. Now as we had before, an issue that we have been trying to resolve for quite some time now. He will randomally blue screen. You had previously thought it was RAM as to everything pointed towards that. Next time he does I will attach a mini dump for you.
