BSOD when reaching windows screen after attempted driver installation

Q: BSOD when reaching windows screen after attempted driver installation

Ok so I was installing my drivers from the cd for my new motherboard and all was going well but then my mouse+keyboard cut out and the system crashed and now when ever I try to boot it and it gets right about to the windows screen this happens.
Any help would be nice

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Quick note I can get into the system if I boot in safemode if that helps at all.

My friends PC had a few BSODs for some time now. She never bothered to try and resolve the issue, relying on her laptop instead. I though it was her security software (Norton) so i removed that and that BSOD went away. A few weeks later (first week in August, i think) it returned, but the PC wouldn't boot into normal mode without BSOD, only safe mode. I tried to update the bios in safe mode and when it got to the end of the update it just sat there without fully completing. I tried to close the update and suddenly...BSOD. Afterwards, I got a BSOD everytime i tried to boot into normal mode, and a BSOD everytime i tried to access the internet (using Chrome everytime) in Safe Mode. however, if i didn't try to get online and used the PC, it was just fine. I attempted a system restor, which was successful and as of today, my PC will boot into normal mode for about 5 minutes then BSOD; it will boot into Safe Mode and BSOD when I try to use Chrome but not when I use IE. That's all the info i can remember.

Just by the behavior of my PC only BSOD-ing in safe mode when i try to access chrome but not when i use IE, i think it's Chrome, but i wanted some expert help, just to be sure.

Hey everyone,

For ages, I've been having these issues of my laptop constantly freezing, crashing, programs not responding, etc. Well, I've finally decided to do something about it.

Device: HP Pavilion m6
Windows 7 x64
AMD A10-4600M Processor APU with Radeon 2.29GHz
Available space on the C: drive: 330GB

The current problem: Windows will not start in normal mode. Upon entering the login screen, it will crash and enter a BDOS screen reading, "A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught." I have been having problems with perpetual freezing for months now, but it has never gotten this bad before.
NOTE: Windows will run smoothly in safe mode, which is why I have narrowed the most probable cause to be a driver issue

Steps I have already taken:

-Ran CCleaner with no issues
-Defragged the disk with no issues
-Scanned for viruses with multiple antivirus programs (Vipre security, Malware bytes, and RogueKiller)
-Have gone into MSconfig and have disabled all startup programs and all startup services EXCEPT FOR MICROSOFT services
-I have attempted to do a system scan several times, but it would always get stuck at 64% of verification scan, even in safe mode
-I have checked the Event Viewer. The errors that appear at the time of the two most recent crashes are:
1. The DHCP Client service depends on the Ancillary Function Driver for Winsock service which failed to start because of the following error:

I have encounter this problem twice. I install Warframe just now and everything was fine and I shutdown my PC and went for lunch. After that, when I boot up my computer , it was unable to boot to desktop and the blackscreen kept flicker. I did a system restore which I made in few months back. Any solution rather than system restore if it happen again? Thanks

Hi there,

For the record I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit in the event that helps.

So I booted up my computer today and I was greeted with the following desktop problem when I clicked the Start button: (The start button icon is modified)

No other editing programs are running, I do use Rainmeter but that was the first thing I ruled out.
I have already made sure that the start menu is not set to show previously opened documents or folders.

If anyone has an idea of how to fix this, your assistance would be greatly appreciated, I have simply never quite run into this problem before.

Hi, so I woke up this morning and turned on my pc and it turned on then went to a screen that said, turn on pc in: safe mode, safe mode with networking, start windows normally, etc.

So I clicked on all of them and the result was the same, It took me to the windows XP loading screen were the blue bar at the bottom would begin to load and then it would just restart, it has been doing this all day.

I have been googling this issue all day but I do not know what to do.

Originally I presumed my power supply might be at fault since it seemed to be making lots of noises the past 4 months.
I have read that faulty RAM could also be the issue, I am currently running memtest86.
I have heard of people reformatting and the problem persisted.

I just need some advice.

btw, this is posted from my other pc

Had my computer for around two or three years now, decided to restart it after being on for a couple days. Windows wanted to install updates, so of course I end up pressing shut down instead so it can. When I go to turn it on again, it gets to the point where it is loading Windows, sits there for about 15-20 seconds, and throws a BSOD at me. I restart and get the same result every time with the same exact error, whether I try to boot normally, the last good config, or in safe mode:


A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.


If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

My laptop is is an HP ENVY m6 Notebook PC, serial code: CND3010HN6

Hello, the past couple of days whenever I have tried to login to my laptop I am presented with a blank gray screen. Here's how it typically goes down:

Turn on laptop using power button (after hard shut down)
Boot screen with HP logo on top and spinning dots on bottom happens
HP logo screen disapears and I am greeted with gray screen for about a minute
Gray screen is replaced by lock screen
Lift lock screen and login to account using password
I now have a gray screen that does not turn into the desktop
Here are some things that happen on the gray screen after login:

I can move my mouse and the cursor pops up and sometimes has the blue loading circle next to it
I can open the task menu by using CTRL + ALT + DELETE but cannot open task manager.
I cannot use any windows key commands (opening the metro screen, popping up the search bar on the side)
Before this happened I was installing a driver for a bluetooth adapter (my laptop does not have bluetooth built in) and had accidentally triggered a restart while it was installing. On the login screen there is an option to login using the bluetooth security tag (I don't know how to use this so I don't know if it will help.) it may also be worth noting that e laptop also has a fingerprint scanner but I don't know if that changes anything (I use that to log in most of the time.)

I was having some BSOD errors on windows 7 while gaming and after messing about with drivers and checking all hardware I came to the conclusion that a clean install of windows would be my best bet. So that's what I did, and after my clean install I have nothing on my PC other than a few drivers (the correct ones) and a handful of programs. I just experienced another BSOD which was System_Service_Exception and I am now at a loss as to what could be the problem. Would appreciate any help, thanks.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read this.
I am having trouble with my computer. I am currently running Windows Vista 64-bit, service pack 2.
My computer was running fine last night and was even working normally when I turned it on this morning. The problem started when I started watching videos on YouTube; halfway through one of them my screen blacked out. It would intermittently pulse gray for a split second, then return to black. Ultimately, the computer blue-screened and I had to reset it. Upon booting back up, the computer seemed to be working normally again, so I gave it a few minutes and then started playing a video game (Mount & Blade: Warband, if knowing which is important). A couple minutes into the game my framerate crashed, giving me a new frame every 5 to 10 seconds. Several minuted after this started, my computer blue-screened again, forcing another reset.
This time the motherboard splash screen that first pops up upon startup was filled with graphical glitches/artifacts, and the boot information feed that comes up after that poured out a seemingly random sequence of numbers, letters, and other characters in place of the actual boot information. The computer got to the Windows loading screen before the monitor blacked out and the computer blue-screened again.
At this point the computer will start up fine in safe mode, but I will always blue-screen when attempting to boot in normal mode. I'm at a loss as to what the prob... Read more

Hi, I'm having trouble with the screen on my Toshiba Satellite L775-S7352 when it reaches the Welcome screen on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. This happens while reaching the Windows Welcome screen & sometimes it will reach the desktop before going fuzzy. It boots fine into Safe Mode.


I've already checked the HDD and the Memory - they are fine... I've done a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit from the manufacturer's recovery disks - the screen and everything else worked fine even through the first round of Windows Update (193 files) the machine rebooted after the updates and I checked for more updates. As soon as the installation of the second round of updates began the screen went buggy.

So I formatted the HDD and tried another reinstall - I successfully reinstalled the system and this time the screen went buggy trying to search for the first update for this reinstall...

Is this an issue with the screen or the GPU? any ideas?

A few days ago my computer blue screened with some sort of memory error. When I attempted to start it back up, it began installing windows updates that I had been putting off. After it looked like it had mostly finished, it got to a screen that said "preparing to configure windows. Do not restart your computer". After sitting on that screen for about thirty seconds the computer rebooted, and then went back to that screen. After about 20 minutes of this, I decided that it probably wasn't going to fix itself.

Things I've tried:
Booting into safe mode (when I attempt to boot into safe mode I end up in the same loop)
There's a tutorial on this site about repair the registry hives, I followed it but It had no effect
I found a tutorial on another site that suggested using the dism took to revert pending installations. This also had no effect
I used a windows 7 install disk and a repair disk and have had no luck with them.

Hello Sk8kidamh,

That issue certainly doesn't sound good.

Can you just clarify that you cannot log into your computer, but you can get into options, such as system restore, command prompt, start-up repair?

If so, please open System Recovery Options (What are the system recovery options in Windows? - Windows Help) and select Command Prompt. When in Command Prompt, please type sfc /scannow and select enter.

Hopefully we can resolve this issue.

Thank you,

Alright, today I hibernated my computer (I usually hibernate) left it for an hour and attempted to turn it back on, now it loads fine but once it gets to the point where it should display the vista logo and then the log in screen the screen goes blank. The hard disk light is blinking fast so fast it's almost just staying on and the wireless does its blinking patterns as if it's redying the wireless connection but the screen remains black. I've tried safe mode, same result. Two screens, same result. I booted Ubuntu and it was fine so I'm using that now.

First of all, any insight into how I should go about fixing this?
If not, I have extremely important files on the hard drive is there any way you could recommend getting them back?

Thanks for any help, I'd hate to have to take it in and risk the guys at the store deciding it's easier just to wipe the hard drive or something.

Are you using a Ubuntu Live CD, or are you dual booting?
If you're dual booting, you can access your ntfs partition from Ubuntu using steps listed on many many web sites: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...earch&aq=f&oq=
Some are easier than others.

As for fixing your Vista. I have reservations because in some of my steps Vista has this nasty habit of overwriting the master boot record with its own without warning you (making you unable to boot into ubuntu if you dual boot), so research some more, and proceed with caution. If you boot into the Vista DVD, I think you can click repair, and you have a bunch of options and it looks like this:
I haven't tried them in a while so I can't really recall what each does.
You can try going back using a restore point. Be VERY cautious with "Startup Repair". I think that's the one that rewrites the master boot record. (if you really need to try it, research how you can backup the master boot record in ubuntu, then restore it if needed - usually a flash drive, a floppy, or a bootable CD may be needed - you most likely would be able to do it from the live cd if you know the steps though).
And if all else fails, do a repair install. Can't recall how it's done, but there are many sites dedicated to that topic. You can also ask around the forum about it.

Hey folks,

Recently I picked back up some of my old favorite PC games. One thing I noticed is that some games would take up nearly half of the allotted memory I gave to them. For example, I allowed Minecraft 2048MB of memory to use, and sometimes it ranged upwards of 70% or so in usage. To alleviate this issue, I went to the store and picked up 16 GB of RAM, hoping it'd run things faster and allowing me to store more on my desktop.

I swapped out the sticks of RAM I had in before and replaced them with the new sticks, but when I tried to turn back on my computer, it wouldn't turn on. So here's a list of things I tried or things I noticed:

- Checked the PSU, unplugged and replugged, checked to see if running on a wall outlet or extension cord mattered. Nothing really changed, computer wouldn't turn on.

- The first few times I tried turning it on, the power light would flick on, as well as the fans, but they'd sputter out within a second or two.

- Tried to reinstall the old RAM sticks, tried mixing-and-matching them in different ports in case one was faulty (I had 6 GB of RAM installed initially, only 4 was present on my desktop, so one port must be faulty, right?).

- Motherboard light was still on, not sure exactly what that means.

- Not only does my case's power button not turn on the computer, but the button that allows me to toggle the fan's red backlight is also not working. Does this mean there's a power issue related to the c... Read more

Hi, all.

A:Driver IRQL Blue Screen - BSOD [moved from Vista/ Windows 7]

Hi -

The particular version of Windows 7 would not be an issue. One problem I see is XP device drivers - you need Windows 7 device drivers even with x86.

Your USB wifi driver, Arcavir system protection and Trend Micro Internet Security are among the probable causes of the BSODs.

Ok so my old vid card crapped out and I had to replace it. Np or so I thought. I bought the XFX Radeon HD 4650 (on the box it also says "AGP 8x" and "1GB DDR2").

I get the thing home, remove the old video card and it's drivers, then install the new one, and as soon as I install the drivers for the new card my computer won't start. It takes about 8-15 reboots in order to get past the black screen. I have uninstalled the drivers, cleaned them in safe mode, restarted again for good measure and then reinstalled the drivers from the disk. I have tried this same procedure several times, I have tried using the drivers from the XFX website, but according to them the card is too new and therefore the most recent drivers are not yet compatible with it.

I have a 450watt Mushkin PS, motherboard is an ASUS A7N8X2.0, Processor AMD Athlon XP 2800+ MMX 3D Now ~2.1GHz, 2048MB Ram, and I'm running Win XP Pro.

The place I bought the card from has replaced the card itself once, so I know that is not the problem. There is a message when you install the drivers from the disk that basically says it was never tested with windows and they don't know if it's all that stable...I have contacted XFX, they say the drivers are fine with windows.

So now here I sit, I have tried everything you can think of. When I bought this video card I made sure it was compatible with the motherboard because I know that my computer is a few years old (my ... Read more

A:Driver installation & Black screen?

Look on the motherboard manufacturer website to assure that you have the latest Chipset drivers... there are sometimes two for some Asus boards.
Describe how your old video card crapped out? Perhaps your motherboard is going to the happy hunting ground?
But I suspect the problem will be found in the motherboard manual at the ASUS site.
The big mystery: What did the place where you bought the card say when the second card didn't work either?: Did they not offer to give your money back?

Hi, all. I've loaded a driver into my Windows 7 Pro x64 installation, but it's giving me the message "Installing an unsigned 64-bit device driver is not supported and might result in an unstable Windows installation".

This is the driver I'm trying to install: Lenovo Support - Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver Windows 7 (64-bit), Vista (64-bit) and XP (64-bit) - ThinkPad

How do I force unsigned driver installation (without rebuilding my Windows 7 image in RT Seven Lite)?

A:Unsigned Driver Installation During Windows 7 Installation

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You could try booting into Safe Mode (F8 on startup) where you can choose to force unsigned driver installs in Windows 64-bit.

I think you can also do it by changing Group Policy parameters: Disable Driver Signing in Windows 7

I am currently building an image for work with all the drivers required to support all of our models. So far, i am able to properly inject all of the drivers and distribute the image without an issue, all except one driver.
Intel USB 3.0 EXtensible Host Controller driver. For some of the models, when installing the drivers automatic before windows loads, it stops with a BSOD.

I would like to have the driver installed automatic, but only if needed. As if the PC does a "Scan for Hardware Changes", notices it needs the drivers, then installs them from where i put them. Is this possible?

I can put the drivers on a desktop of the admin, and install them manually of course. It only takes a few seconds. However with the model in question, it requires these drivers to be installed before any of the usb ports work at all. I am forced to use PS2 keyboard and mouse , which is a problem with our KVM.

I would appreciate any advice at all, as i cannot find the answer to this particular issue in the forums.
Thank you!

Anyway, here's what I have so far. Been at it about two hours today, not getting anywhere. This desktop has been sitting in a corner for months, I recently reformatted it so I could use it again. Got just about everything updated, just this sound driver is killing me! I try to install my sound driver via the device manager, and it will crash just before the installation is complete. I've tried searching a bit, but i've run into dead links. That and leads to drivers that don't seem to match my sound card. I'm stumped. The PC is a dell optiplex 620, I've attached a link with the system service tag for more information. http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-support/servicetag/7hws1c1/drivers?DCP=DndTag&s=BSD

My HP Pavilion notebook has an NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 graphics card. I have not found a Windows 8 driver for this card, but at least two older Vista drivers that I have tried will run the card.

But after installing the display driver the boot sequence proceeds normally up to the lock screen (where password information is entered) which then appears blank. There is not a way to get past the blank lock screen, and the only way out is to uninstall the display driver. After uninstalling, the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter takes over again, the lock screen appears, and is not a problem once more.

I don't think the driver is directly responsible for this, as it seems to function normally. But something causes a hang at that screen. Possibly this is where the installed driver should have started but it is late in starting, so nothing is displayed?

Hi everyone,

This is such a great forum by the way - I haven't used it before but I've read a few posts and everyone seems so helpful! I'll try to make my situation as understandable as possible.

Firstly, the required specs:


? Windows 7 (Ultimate I think)
? 64 bit
? Brand new computer. I installed XP. Then reformatted to install Win7.
? Full retail version
? ~3-4 years
? ~1-2 years
? Q6600 2.4Ghz overclocked to ~3.2Ghz
? nVidia 8800GTS 320mb
? Asus P5E x48 (I think) - with Rampage Formula drivers
? Antec TruPower (not sure) ~500W

Have always used my Razer Lachesis mouse (used to be on old XP firmware/driers)
And then I installed Windows 7 (and I probably updated to the latest Windows 7 drivers)
I recently decided to upgrade to the newest firmware/drivers from the official Razer Lachesis page.
The firmware installs fine.
Upon installation of the driver, I got a BSOD.
Upon restart, it said I had a corrupt file of a 3 letter (.sys file) which I forgot. Something like 'cng.sys' maybe. It booted up fine though using the recovered option.
The Razer Configurator software didn't install and there was no more Razer folder in Program Files (but there used to be).
So I believe the drivers didn't install.
I try again, and I keep getting BSOD with some dump where the number counts upwards.
So I'm pretty sure it's because of the new mouse driver I'm trying to install for my mouse. Not sure what's the conflict though. Any help muc... Read more

A:Razer Lachesis mouse driver installation causes BSOD

Yah, from the past two crashdumps (both dated April 5), it's definitely the mouse drivers (Lachesis.sys reported for both), and it's performing the same exact thing. I can't tell without a kernel dump what's actually going on, but whatever it did, it looks like it's corrupted the crashdumps as well (lots of information is zeroed).

Are you installing the correct drivers for it? You are installing the Windows 7 64-bit drivers, yes? I've noticed as well researching this that many other people are experiencing awful compatibility issues with 64-bit version of Vista and their Lachesis, and I'm feeling that this incompatibility has transferred over to Windows 7 as well.

Further inspection has me eyeballing a particular driver that kept unloading itself, thrice in each crashdump, that being LVUSBS64.sys. I know from research it's related to a USB Logitech device, most likely a webcam or speakers, but not entirely sure on that. You should determine this based on your own personal PC setup. Whatever Logitech item you have, you may wanna go into Device Manager and right click the device then click "Disable". Restart the PC. Then install the Lachesis drivers and restart as usual. If it still crashes, just simply consider the Lachesis as being incompatible to Windows 7 environment. Otherwise, it may very well be the Logitech device doing something funky and the Lachesis drivers have been left with the bag.

A BSOD occurs during the installation for any AMD display driver, as well as any other display driver for the intel HD Graphics.

Using DDU to remove previous drivers and attempting an installation from there did not help. The GPU was working fine before the Win10 installation, but now those BSOD have prevented the use of the GPU for anything.

AMD posted in their release notes for their latest Drivers that a BSOD will occur for AMD GPU/Intel CPU setups, and to try Windows Update for drivers. Windows Update will not complete the upgrade.

Hopefully someone can help me identify the problem. Can't rollback to Win7 either so I'm stuck with win10 for now XD

BSOD is a result of serious software issue or hardware malfunction.
You said this BSOD appears after installation of graphic card driver.

First of all; did you install the right graphic driver?
Secondly; did you install the Win XP patches?

The Toshiba driver page provides some Win XP drivers for this notebook model?
The drivers are placed in Archive area because this notebook is an oldie?
Should check it?

If the BSOD will still appear after Windows XP update and after right driver installation then a hardware issue could be the reason for this issue?
By hardware malfunction I mean the graphic chip issue or memory module issue?.

I recently did a clean install of Windows 10 'home' (64bit) on my machine.

1. Since this update, my PCI USB card no longer works.
In the Device Manager, I see "via rev 5 or later usb" with a yellow triangle and exclamation mark. When I try to update the driver I am told its is the latest.

How do I solve this - anyone else experienced similar and know where I can get the latest driver?
(I have tried the obvious things like uninstalling the hardware, unplugging the PC for 1 minute but nothing helps)

2. How do I manually override the Windows driver - for example, Windows seems to have issues with the USB speakers on the generic driver. When I try to update to a later Realtek driver, I point to this and get a message saying my driver is the latest.
I want the manufacture specific driver for some things and this may also help with my issue above if its caused by a redundant driver.

Hi gang....

Sorry if this has been answered before.... but I didn't see a solution for my setup.

I have a new Gateway DX4720-03 PC with Vista x64 Home Premium and a SATA Optiarc DVD AD-7203S SCSI Cdrom Device.

I have a legal copy of Vista Ultimate x86, which runs my external hardware Ok. But this hardware does not have a x64 driver for my x64 Vista I already have.

I love the x64 Vista, but I need to dual boot to get my external hardware working in the x86 Vista.

When I boot up from my Ultimate DVD, to setup Dual boot and install the x86 Vista... things go ok until I get to a screen that says I need to install a missing device driver for my DVD drive....

OK... I've tried all the tricks I've read except the one about switching the DVD to being on the Slave.... except, being SATA, how do you do that? Is there a jumper on the back of the SATA DVD to switch it????

Any ideas? SATA drives are new to me... Thanks a bunch!!

This has been a known problem with the x64 installs and SATA drivers - I have seen a couple of options on the net, one being (of course) get an IDE drive - but one that *seems* to have worked for some folks is to change the SATA option in BIOS from Native to Legacy (if such an option is available) to get it to work.

Failing that, you could post a list of some of the options that *are* available in your BIOS and we can mull them over to see if changing one (or more than one) will work or not....

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.
