  1. Hey guys. I am getting sick of this problem that I have put up with for quite some time.

    I keep getting the same two errors, "sisgb6.sys" and "dxgmms1.sys"

    If anyone could tell me what it is/how to fix it, I would greatfully appreciate it.

    Thanks alot, Soldan.

    P.S I have attached the minidumps from today, so far, 5.

    Three errors are 0xD1 and these are usually caused by faulty drivers.

    In all three the NDIS 6.0 Miniport Driver SiSGB6.sys for SiS191/SiS190 Ethernet Device was cited as the cause of your crashes.

    If this is a prebuilt system go to the manufacture's website, find your exact PC model and update your ethernet/wireless/NIC drivers.

    If this is built by you, a friend, or a third party vendor like a local PC shop then find the make of your motherboard and the model. Go to the manufacture's website and look up your motherboard. Update your ethernet/wireless/NIC drivers.

    Aha! Thank you very much. It is a premade computer, Acer Aspire SA90 (Yes, I know :/) and it came with Windows Vista. I put Windows 7 on it. But, it seems that the drivers are for Vista and I am not sure if I should install them on the Windows 7?

    When I installed Windows 7, I didn't have to install any drivers (resolution was fine, audio working, internet, etc). But I did install my Nvidia drivers anyway.

    Any ideas?

    EDIT - It also turns out that the version on the Acer website is "2.0.1039.1610", and the one I have (I looked at it with BlueScreen Viewer) is "2.0.1039.1680 Built by: WinDDK"

    Install the Acer driver. You will probably have to uninstall the other one. It seems when you updated to 7 it automatically loaded it's own.

    We see this alot going from either XP or Vista to 7.
