Acedrv09.sys random BSOD help

  1. Ok, first off here is my message I get everytime:

    Stop: 0X00000050 (0XFFFFF8800D473000,0X00000000000000,0XFFFFFA600A100C02,0X0000000000000000)
    acedrv09.sys-address FFFFFA600100C02 base at FFFFFA600A0FC000, Date stamp 45cc7c68

    not sure on the caps where they go but that is the last message I got. This is a completely RANDOM occurance. So nothing in paticular is causing it. It also doesnt happen everyday... but it does happen a lot. I have tried virus scanners... did a hijackthis log and it was good. I have done pretty much everything I can think of as far as scanning my comp goes. Here is my system specs too:

    AMD Athlon64X2 6000 dual core
    4gb pc6400 ram
    geforce 260 card
    creative hifi xgamer
    Vista Ultimate 64bit

    Thanks for any help you can give!

    Also... not sure if it is related... but basically my WMP11 will not function correctly anymore either. For instance.. it will not play ANY .wmv extension files anymore. And when it does play videos it will randomly crash and I have to restart WMP11 (doesnt crash windows though) Related issue??

    Hey Skeeb,

    I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone. I believe that I am having exactly the same error as you. It likewise occurs completely randomly, and usually about once per day. The info I receive from the BSOD is:


    STOP 0x0000000000000050 (0xFFFFF8800CE6D000, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFFA6002F99C02, 0x0000000000000000)

    Caused by acedrv09.sys
    Address: FFFFFA6002F99C02
    Base: FFFFFA6002F9500
    DateStamp: 45cc7c68

    My system specs are comparable (my system is an Acer Aspire 6920G):
    Intel Core2 Duo T5750 @ 2.00GHz
    4 GB RAM
    Vista x64 Home Premium
    Mobile Intel 965 Express chipset onboard video

    The good news is that I'm pretty sure the whole .wmv issue is unrelated. I can play .wmv files just fine, although I never use Windows Media Player (I use Media Player Classic instead).

    Best of luck!

    A device driver is a program that let windows to control your hardware(printer,sound card,monitor,cdrom,modem,mouse,etc.). Each hardware component in your computer requires a driver, otherwise it cannot be used by windows 98/2000/xp/vista.Update drivers of your PC will improve system performance and stability

    Description: Filter Driver ProtectDisc
    Manufacturer: Protect Software GmbH

    Update your drivers by going to the manufacturer's website, find the software and see if they have any updates.
