BSOD after Windows 7 install, plus display driver fault

Q: BSOD after Windows 7 install, plus display driver fault


I just uploaded Windows 7 professional yesterday (clean install, using windows xp previously). Everything went smoothly as far as I could tell and Windows 7 is now running on my laptop.

However every 10 minutes or so the screen freezes, goes black for a second and than returns to normal and a message appears in the bottom right hand corner of the screen saying 'Display driver Intel graphics accelerator for windows vista(R) has stopped responding and successfully recovered'

One time after this happened I got the a blue screen with a warning message (it was too fast to copy anything down) and than my laptop restarted itself. I have added a zip file to this message taken from \windows\minidump as I saw someone suggested to do this on another thread... I hope it helps with the diagnosis.

I'm not sure if the BSOD came as a result of the display driver fault as mentioned above. I'm not very savvy when it comes to computers.

One more piece of info - after installing windows 7, I installed all the recommended and critical updates for windows, but none of the optional ones. I can provide a screen dump of these if needed.

Hope I've given enough information and would really appreciate any help.

I've been having frequent BSODs for a while now. They happen intermittently, usually when I'm doing something graphical such as using skype, or streaming a video. I've tried a number of different versions of ATI's graphics drivers, to no avail. I've tried reinstalling them several times.

I ran driver verifier, but I couldn't get past the Windows bootup screen with it on. On a possibly related note, every time I start the computer, this screen freezes for a second, flickers once, and then continues.

I made this build about 8 months ago. I've got an ATI Radeon HD 5770 and I'm currently using driver version 8.850.0.0. Any help is very much appreciated


A:BSOD - maybe display driver's fault?

edit - look at whole post please added more down below

What the minidump is pointing to is a windows core file that controls your network driver.
Though I can see how you thought it was graphics related as it's call ndis.sys ...looks like something display related but it's not.

First make sure the windows file is okay and not corrupt somehow by running this
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
(it's quick and easy even if it doesn't change anything)

It would seem you have norton internet security installed. Make sure it's not accidentally blocking any system level processes (this can happen sometime and would explain your problem) ndis needs to be allowed.

A:BSOD during display driver install...

On the Lenovo site, I find this video driver for Windows 10 X64.

Intel HD Graphics Driver

Have you tried that one yet?

Looking at the two most recent dumps, sgfxk64 is in the stack just prior to the bugcheck.
All I can find on it is this:

Product: SMSC Graphics Adapter WDDM Software
Company: SMSC
Description: SMSC Graphics Adapter WDDM Kernel Mode Driver
This appears to apply to the Intel onboard graphics adapter so maybe the driver I pointed to will fix this?

Really hoping someone might have an idea of what I can do.... I'm stumped!

I was getting a number of BSOD's on my build last week (page faults, wink32.sys, etc.) that seemed to come up after new AMD catalyst drivers were installed (old vid card was a Radeon HD 5770) and decided the best approach would be to replace a bunch of components, wipe my SSD and go for a clean install of windows. So I picked up a brand new motherboard and vid card and now I can't even complete an installation of Windows 7 without getting a Page Fault in Non Paged Area BSOD. This often happens when I am going through the installation process, or if I manage to complete the install I get the black screen with a blinking cursor on boot and when I try to use the installation disc to repair I get hit with the same BSOD.

After researching online I noticed many people were able to correct the error with new RAM, so after trying each of my old sticks independently without success I picked up 2 brand new sticks from Micro-center and despite any configurations I try in the 4 slots I still get the same error. I also checked the timing settings in the BIOS and they are correct (and correctly identified) regardless of which RAM I try.

Literally the only components that aren't brand new are the CPU, the PSU, and the SSD (which is only about 3 months old and I picked it up after my old HDD started having some issues), and yet I'm still having these BSOD's. Any idea of what I can do? Thanks!

Hi, I'm trying to install the "Air Display" software which requires a reboot, and when it reaches the part where it reboots, my laptop takes forever while on the "Shutting down" screen and after a long time, goes to a BSOD with "DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE".

When I boot it back up afterwards, the software doesn't resume installing, so I'm not sure what kind of failures are occurring, or if the software install is triggering all of this somehow. If I just restart my computer normally, I don't get the BSOD, only when I am trying to perform this install.

Can anyone help with diagnosing via the attached minidump file? I have no idea how to view it.

The bugcheck indicates that a power IRP has failed to synchronize with the PnP Manager within the specified timeout controlled by a timer and a counter incremented by a Watchdog.

Power IRPs have to synchronize with the PnP Manager generally to avoid unexpected behavior which could lead to crashes. For example, a PnP Device Removal Request being sent when the device isn't powered down yet.

Hi, I've recently been using drivermax to update my drivers. After my updates, I've been randomly getting BSODs then and now. I looked into the minidump with bluescreenviewer but cannot find a fix to the problem. I've uploaded the minidump. Please help! I'm using a shared a computer so I don't know if the origin of the problem is caused by someone else.

Hi all,
Ever since I purchased my Asus W3J (T7200, ATI Mobility X1600), I've been plagued by BSOD casued by no particular action and at completely random times and intervals. Suspecting the RAM, I replaced it (despite making it through many passes of memtest) but no dice, the problem persisted. The Windows Error Reporter tells me I have a driver problem and running my minidumps through Windb tells me the same thing but they rarely get more specific than that. I occasionally am told that my video driver is at fault but I've upgraded it every time a new one is available and have tried the Omega Drivers as well to avail. I've tried updating virtually every other driver as well since I can't be sure it's the video driver. Writing this very post somehow caused a BSOD so I've been forced to switch to my faithful Linux backup computer for the time being. Since the T7200 can support it, I think I may try to install Vista 64-bit and hope that a new set of drivers will resolve the problem. Is this likely? The three most recent Minidumps will be attached as soon as I can get the other computer running long enough to edit this post.

~ Brett

A:BSOD likely from Driver Fault, but which one? What to do?

When you have done Windb do you continue on to the kd> space at the bottom for further analysis by typing !analyze -v and then press enter to get detailed bugging information?

I have found that zeros me right to the driver causing the issue.

Edited Update: I read your minidumps and the two from 3/11 and 3/24 point to the ntkrpamp.exe and the one on 3/26 is due to win32k.sys. From what I have been reading, some from the archives of Tech Spot itself, 80% of it points to faulty RAM. Do a MemTest86+ for at least 10 passes to see if you have any memory errors.

Others here have greater knowledge than I, but if you have bad memory that can cause all kinds of headaches.

I apologize for the long post but I'm trying to provide as much information as possible.

Up until last month my Win7 PC has operated almost flawlessly. The comp is about 2 years old - i500 series, 4GB of RAM, 1 TB harddrive. The comp is primarily used for gaming, code writing, and photoshop/animations. For whatever reason, it is now dreadfully slow when booting up. Once the computer boots up (a good 20 minutes later - no exaggeration), it will work fine for an hour or so and then the game being played will hang for about a minute or two, resume working properly and then hang again an hour or so later. The issue appears to be tied to the internet connection somehow. Other programs running in the background seem to be working. At this point in time, there is no discretion between which program hangs and which ones dont. Whatever program is active is the one that hangs. This pattern seems to repeat itself every hour or so.

To me this sounds like a malware or virus issue. However what do more experienced people think?

The first time the game hung, I simply rebooted the computer. It hadnt been rebooted in a while and I figured it just needed a rebooting. That reboot took forever and has not recovered since then. At that time, Windows rejected my onboard ethernet port (which had been working prior to reboot) and would not install the drivers for it. I even went so far as to completely remove the device and let Windows work through it - all to no avail.

I've done a memtest86 ran it for 8 passes no errors.

I have quite a few minidump files and a dxdiag attached.

These BSOD basically happen when I am using a lot of USB devices it seems or anything that uses internet. I use a Hawking hi-gain USB dish hwu8dd rev. b and my mouse and keyboard are USB.

Could it be a possible failing hard drive? I've made sure all of my cables were secured correctly.

I've also made sure I am virus free and malware free I use avast anti-virus.

My system is stable if I am not doing a lot of things at once. But if I am running a browser or two, a game and an email client I will get a blue screen shortly after. I've noticed this problem while watching youtube videos or hulu I am guaranteed a blue screen.

I've done a SFC /SCANNOW in safe mode as well as a chkdsk /f nothing seems to resolve the issue.

I've gotten blue screens in the past and it seems to only have gotten worse now I can't do much of anything. I've recently added a webcam which is USB but removed it to see if it was causing the issue and still the same problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

I've just gotten a BSOD saying my display driver timed out while I was in windows. The monitors lost their image, and began searching the various ports for a connection, then the BSOD showed up. This is the first time I've actually seen it happen, but I believe it has happened before since I have come back to see my computer has rebooted/shutdown.

This OS is a Full Retail fresh install as of about two weeks ago. The system is brand new as of about 2 weeks ago. The only pieces I've retained from my former computer (which was about 3 years old) are the power supply, some hard drives, and the keyboard. Any other information should be listed in my system specs.

I'm planning on overclocking, but I want to get this BSOD sorted out before I do.

Thank you.

A:BSOD in Windows Display Driver Timeout

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

Tell us when you get these BSODs, i.e., randomly or are you doing something specific at the time.

You have errors 0x3B and two 0xA but they only cite Windows OS drivers and these are usually too general to be of much diagnostic help.

By the way, I noticed your system hardware (nice set-up; love to hear your feed back on that 635 processor) and you are running 6 gigs of RAM. Try running with just 4 gigs. Do you gain stability?

I installed the lan driver from my board manufacture and it still happened, again claiming that it is a vista driver fault.

I have all 4 minidumps and i need help analyzing this, because it is getting ridiculous.

I have just built a Windows 7 machine and am having lots of problems

I can't run windows update which outputs error messages - have followed all the fixes for this to no success

I get BSOD constantly whenever I try to do anything

The system is all new apart from the GPX card (full spec below)

AMD Bulldozer FX-4 Quad Core
Asus M5A99x motherboard
8 GB (2x4) Kingston HyperX Genesis Grey DDR3
Sapphire Radeon HD4870 1GB PCIe (moved over from old PC)
1 x OCZ Vertex II Bigfoot 120GB SSD (OS and program drive)
1 x Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD (file storage only)
Rane TTM57SL USB soundcard

The system is a fresh build yesterday with NOTHING installed on any of the drives apart from:

Motherboard drivers
Windows OS - 7 x64 Ultimate SP1
Windows updates (up to a point - 8 of them can't install)
Serato Scratch Live software and drivers for the TTM57SL
AVG Antivirus Free

I have attached a zip of dump file and report

Any help would be massively appreciated

Best advice that I've seen about this error (from here: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tml#post356791 )

What you're looking for will be in one of the following categories:

a) BIOS bug
b) a driver whose activity is causing the target processor to lock up
c) a hardware defect (temperature, voltage, dust, RFI, outright borkedness...)

Check the drivers
Check the inside of the case (temperature, voltage, dust, etc).
Run Furmark, and Prime95 below.

Good day all I have installed Windows 10 Pro 64-bit on an old Lenovo G550. It used to work well on Windows 7, but now I cannot install or update the display drivers in order to connect an external display (LG 49" TV) at 1920 x 1080. Windows installed its own useless drivers that obtains at least 1366 x 768 on both the laptop and the TV when displays are duplicated. Then the highest I can go is 1366 x 768. When I select "Show only on 2" (which is essentially what I want to do), it goes down to an even worse display resolution, but this also disables the Resolution drop-down.  I have downloaded every version of drivers know to God and man from Lenovo's and other sites, but all of them tells me: "This computer does not meet the minimum requirement for installing software." I have deleted the driver and reinstalled via "Scan for hardward changes" as well. I have done a Windows update as well. I have no idea what to do next. How do I fix this stupid problem? Please help me. Thank you in advance.Kind regardsRenier

Lately I've been having all the games on my computer crash within about 2-3 minutes of starting them, and sometimes I get a Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal BSOD in place of a crash. I had two of these BSOD's last week, and all of them seem to be followed by a Page Fault in Non-Paged Area BSOD. I've ran Memtest 86+ to make sure there's no fault with my ram, and they cleared 3 passes, and chkdsk shows no errors either. BlueScreenView reports that the Driver IRQL error is associated with a USBPORT.sys driver, and the Page Fault BSOD is associated with a msahci.sys driver.

Hi Barman42.

As you are having multiple bugchecks with multiple probable causes, the first thing that you should do is to test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Hello, Yesterday I updated the driver for my AMD Radeon HD6310 equipped Gateway laptop . After it was installed WM player and VLC player stopped working so I rolled back the driver but it did not fix the issue. I noticed that after the "driver" installation, some programs were added and some windows processes were altered.

I went to System Restore and picked a restore point before the driver update. However after initializing, the system crashed and I got a BSOD. I tried several other restore points but they all crashed and led to the BSOD.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey guys, this is my first time posting here, but I am in need of your help. I am an IT engineer at a software company, and we are running HP 840 G3's for many of our users. We have been finding many BSOD errors for various reasons lately, and would like to see if you can point me in the right direction for a solution. This specific error happens randomly, and is one of 3 different erros we have been seeing. I will post my minidump files, and the debugger analysis, but I cannot use the program your site has suggested on my work pc unfortunately. We have tried to change the RAM, update the BIOS, update video card drivers, and rolled video card drivers back as well. Please advise! Also note, I am limited to what I can run on my machine, as these are secure work computers.

Brand new newbie to the forum - found it through googling "page fault in non pagefault error" so you guys made a good name for yourselves solving that particular problem

Anyway on to my woes...

I've got a 3 year old Medion Deskbrick that has been giving me heartache. The specs are:

P4 2.66 on a generic brand mobo
256 mb ram
250 PSU (more details to follow regarding this PSU)
160 GB HDD
NEC 3520A Burner

Thats the basic gist of the system. There used to be a video card, there used to be a sound card, there used to be a WinTV card but I removed all of those to try troubleshooting the problem.

Now onto the details:
1) Since there's no video card in, the integrated video card kicked in and is currently taking 32mb out of my 256 ram so my ram is detailed at 224 MBs during memtest.
2) Memtest seems to think my ram is ok after 7 or so passes but based on what I've ready in these here forums, memtest LIES frequently.
3) Originally I had a 250 PSU that was giving about 8A to the 12 rail....yea...you read right, 8A...needless to say, after trying to verify the ampage coming out with a voltmeter, the PSU quickly died and now I'm using a 250 backup PSU with a 18A 12 rail so everything should be fine in regards to the PSU for the barebone ness of my system.
4) The harddrive used to have things in it...but in my desperation, I did what anyone who panics would do: I formatted both my C: and D: partitions.

I will post the dump files, but I cannot post the system specs with the program in the "how to post BSOD post" or whatever that thread is, because the program crashes my computer and I believe it is when it gets to something about system display....

Hello all,

I just got a new PC but have been suffering from what appear to be totally random BSoD occurrences. It has occurred when a wide variety of programs are being run and I cannot find any commonalty between the events. Based on the error codes (driver irql_less_or_not_equal is the most common) I suspect it is a driver fault but I am not savvy enough to identify what one(s) is/are at fault. I've updated every driver I know of to what appears to be the latest verison and done a clean reinstall on graphics drivers to 353.30. I've unplugged all peripherals barring my mouse, keyboard and monitor and had the same result. Sometimes it will go hours without failing and sometimes it will occur multiple times during startup. I've also ran SFC /scannow as an admin with no faults found in 5 attempts. Malwarebytes has turned up no threats.

My current specs are:

Mobo - Asus Gryphon Z97 Armor Edition
CPU - Intel i7- 4790K
RAM - TeamGroup Vulcan Gold 16GB @ 2133MHz
GPU - EVGA GTX 980 Ti Superclocked ACX 2.0+
SSD - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB
HDD - Seagate Barracuda 3TB
OS - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've attached every minidump I have received but if you need more information please just say.

The problem is a mix of BSOD's and freezes. I only noticed the error message on the BSOD a couple of times, which was "page fault in non-paged area" with a reference to the file win32k.sys. It then started a memory dump and rebooted on completion. Attached is the minidump file and a txt document with the error codes.

The machine is new (I built it last September - specs below), with Vista 64-bit SP1. It had been running absolutely fine since a week ago when I swapped my old Seagate hard drive out and put in the 2 current drives, and installed them in RAID 0. Initially I thought that it was the RAID config or drivers, and have since done several reinstalls. However same probs kept occurring. I was also worried that my system might be underpowered and that the 2nd hd was just slightly too much: I've consequently also reinstalled everything on one of the 2 hard drives and disconnected the other, as it is now, but still the same problems. I can't help feeling that it's hardware-related, and am on the verge of buying a higher-powered PSU.

I've run Memtest86 a couple of times to 300% + coverage, no errors. Have Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 installed, fully updated and nothing detected just now after a full scan.

Hope you can help! Am desperately trying to do my work on this machine!

I haven't been able to update my nVidia drivers for over a year now. It's starting to cause troubles: games started to crash. Now when I shutdown my PC it does the automatic Windows updates and when I turn it back on, I get the same BSOD. I have a feeling it's the video drivers that cause issues, so today I tried uninstalling them and installing the newest ones (306.97), but it didn't work so I had to do a system restore. BTW, my current driver version: 285.62.
P.S. I'm shutting down my PC by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del and then Shutdown, so it doesn't install the updates.

A:Cannot install any driver or windows updates, getting BSOD 0x0000007E

Welcome aboard, madbuddha.

Your basic problem is the dispaly driver, as the latest version is somehow unstable in cases. I would recommend you roll it back to an earlier one, a known good stable version, which I suggest usually, and in most of the cases it works.
Download and install Driver Fusion.
Reboot the computer in Advanced Boot Options, safe mode. Search Driver Fusion in your start menu, and remove all components of your nVidia display driver.
Boot normally now. Go to Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers, Drivers > Beta and Legacy; search there with your cards particulars for GeForce 306.23 Driver, dated 13.9.2012 and install it.
A few problems are there with the storage driver, as I am seeing. A search revealed that you are using nForce as the chipset driver, and that includes nvstor.sys as the storage controller driver. You need to try to update nForce, as it contains not only the storage controller, but also network controller and a lot of other vital drivers.

Go to Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers, search for nForce, as per your motherboard's chipset specifications.

What is most important that you have SPTD.sys installed. Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall the program at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :

I've just reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and was trying to install drivers from the motherboard manufacturer website. I have no sound and when I try to install the latest VIA Audio Driver, I get a BSOD right after, then I have to do a system restore.

This is what I see when I go to the playback devices, I have my pc speakers plugged into the audio jack.

My speakers dont show up. How can I get around this so I can have sound again?

Heres the link to the website: Motherboards - M4N68T-M V2 - ASUS

A:Reinstalled Windows 7 > No sound > BSOD after audio driver install

It sounds like the Sound was disabled in the BIOS. Check the BIOS to see if it was inadvertently disabled. If the VIA is Windows 7 compatible, Windows would have installed the generic High Definition Audio Codec and that apparently was not installed.

With only the High Definition Audio Device, that says you did not install the AMD Radeon HD5450 drivers or you would see AMD HDMI listed instead of the generic Windows installed High Definition Audio Device.

On an unrelated note, I see you have Windows 7 64 bit installed. With only 4GB of RAM the 64 bit OS does nothing for you. In fact the 64 bit uses more basic memory than a 32 bit so you have less memory available for programs.

I'm having trouble with my display driver. Several times, while on a video skype call, my screen drops to minimum resolution, and a box pops up telling me the ialmrnt5 display driver is not working properly. My display adapter is an Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family. So I went to the Intel site and downloaded the supposedly current driver package (as a .zip file) and saved in where I can find it.

My question is, how do I now go about installing the new drivers. It seems to me that as long as the computer is running, the old drivers will be in use, and maybe can't be removed to be replaced by the new ones. I'd appreciate if someone could tell me how to proceed, without really messing things up.

Thanks in advance to all who may help.

A:How do I re-install a display driver?

Re-download that ".zip" file to your desktop.

Right-click it and click "Extract All." (You'll want to extract the files to the desktop for convenience)

Then double-click the new folder on your desktop and look for an .exe.

Click launch the .exe and an installation wizard should guide you through the rest of the process.

Just upgraded my system from Win XP Home to XP Pro.

Everything went well except for the display adaptor driver.

I have been using the ATI Radeon 9200 128 Mb DDR for several months before the upgrade. When the board was not recognized upon completion of the XP Pro install, I ran the ATI installation disk that came with the board.

"Severe" error resulted with the message:

"Setup was unable to complete the installation. Try to setup your display adapter with a standard VGA driver before running setup."

Unfortunately, Win XP will not allow me to setup the adapter as a standard VGA. In fact the display adapter is not even listed in Device Manager!

Yes, I got another driver for the Radeon on line -- same result. Other drivers just result in a code 5 failure.

Something is choking the driver installation. What could it be?

I am getting a display 800x600 w/ 32 bit color quality (driver unknown),but I need to get a higher resolution and avail myself of the other features of this board.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Oh and by the way it sometimes goes blackscreen with these lines coming down while the game plays in the background and I have to manually turn off my computer.

A:[SOLVED] BSOD Driver IQRL not less or Equal Page Fault Non Page Area

Smells like video card puttering out.

Are you referring to a permission denial by attempting to attach the dumps directly? You'll need to zip them first before sending them over, as only certain file types are permitted. Plus there's a 5 MB limit (doubt that's the cause though).

I'm running:

Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit, OEM, never reinstalled
HP model #p6654y, approx. 1 year old, no major problems until now

I've attached the BSOD Dump and System File Collection, but Windows refuses to produce a System Health Report because I have to run in safe mode. If you have an alternative method, I'll be glad to try it, but normal mode seems to be producing crashes more and more quickly.

First BSOD was 12/25, then 12/29, then 12/31. There have been more than 3 crashes, but not every crash has produced a minidump; several times, the crash has been a sudden black screen. One time, display froze with a bunch of horizontal lines/distortion and stuck like that until I hard restarted. I have had to hard restart every time (except for 2 occasions during which hard restart would not work, and I had to pull the power cord).

System Restore had me up and running for a whole day yesterday, and then it crashed again today. I was playing Zynga Poker on Facebook during at least 2 crashes, but crashes have happened without it open as well.

Running 2 passes of the memory checker did not detect any memory issues. From my experience, it doesn't seem like a hardware problem, but I could be wrong.

Please help.

A:BSOD & Non-BSOD Crashes, Display Driver Issue?

Really easy. Your AVG.

I notice your AVG which is often at least a contributing cause of BSOD'S . Please remove and replace your AVG with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

experiencing so many BSOD's over the last couple days.

w7 64 bit
full install

fairly new comp
i5 2400
16gb ram

Reformatted yesterday

I think it is an issue with my ati drivers.
- atikmdag.sys
- ntoskrnl.exe

versions of CCC I've tried

testing 11.1 now
used driver cleaner to ensure the previous driver was totally removed.

Occured when playing silkroad x8 clients
Occured again when browsing with I.E and Chrome - no clients

- have since installed my keyboard drivers due to the last BSOD
- occured with drivers before reformat

- before reformat additional bsods
-only 8gb ram was running 89% or so for a while - could it be damaged? i purchased 8gb more in case
