Help with BSODs


IndyLux

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I'm still getting occasional BSODs on my HTPC. I'm looking in my event viewer and there are several events that seem interesting, but I don't know how to interpret the codes or debug.

 

I downloaded the microsoft debugger, but I've never used it and don't know how to proceed.

 

Can any of you fine gentlemen help?

 

Thanks,

Chris

Is there an nVidia Graphics card in this equation? If not I would start running chkdsk on all the drives to start eliminating HDD issues.

All I've ever done with those codes is search for them using google or Bing. Sometimes that helps; sometimes not.

Do you guys know of any software to check for driver updates beyond windows update? I've updated everything I know to update.

There are a number of so-called driver update sites on the web, but I don't trust them as far as I can throw them. To me they're pretty much snake-oil salesmen, trying to give you malware in the back door while promising great service through the front.

The Intel driver update utility was something I tried last night. I think it found a few things to update. As for the snakeoil products, I did try one (maybe two) just to see what they said and they both flagged EVERY Intel driver I had installed then pointed me to things that wouldn't install or were older than what I had. They also pointed to the Realtek HD Audio drivers that I do not use (I use Intel HD Audio) as well as some kind of Intel SSD rapid architecture thing that it wanted me to install 'prior' to the OS. Too late for that NOW. We'll see if the stuff I updated makes a difference. BTW Checkdisk scans were all 100% normal as was a MemTest so that's good!

Here's what I do. Run Belarc Advisor to get an accurate inventory of your system. The report will show every piece of hardware and the current driver version. Research each one at the manufacturer's site and see what is available. I do no trust that update utilities.
