  1. Constantly having BSOD - hardware.sys

    From what I can see this case here is identical to my problem:

    Back to my case, shorter version:

    Last weeks I have had regular BSOD, where one ended in not being able to reboot so I had to reinstall Windows 10 to make it work again. It's really getting to bug me and cost me alot of hours trying to find the error.

    Lately the BSOD are all MEMORY_MANAGEMENT but before I removed a faulty disk drive two weeks ago, the message/problem varied from BSOD to BSOD. To me it looked random.

    I have probably had some 30+ BSOD now so roughly eash second lately. I need to fix this.

    I have installed and done disk checks for all drives looking for problems or corrupted sectors, I had one disk with some corruption on it this has been physically removed. I have done all the RAM checks I can find, and every one tells me there is nothing wrong with the ram. I have also done extensive testing of RAM from some benchmarking suites I downloaded, also under stress the RAM will not fail. Same for disks, have tested and done ekstra read and write tests suits to find errors - but all disks are 100% top shape every software tool tells me. So why does the system crash?

    When I reboot it all works great again, nothing lost. The only pattern I find for the crashes are using lots of RAM, I usually have a lot of Google Chrome browser tabs open - this is the only thing I can guess takes any resources.

    I installed WhoCrashed, so hoperfully this can help. Also crashes are back on a fresh installed Windows 10 system aswell strangely enough.

    Are there some tools I can use to test, do you require any other info than the dump below?

    Thanks in advance.

    Crash Dump Analysis

    Crash dumps are enabled on your computer.

    Crash dump directories:

    On Tue 15.10.2019 13.48.00 your computer crashed or a problem was reported
    crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP
    This was probably caused by the following module: hardware.sys (hardware)
    Bugcheck code: 0x1A (0x41792, 0xFFFF923FFDE9D660, 0x10000000000, 0x0)
    Bug check description: This indicates that a severe memory management error occurred. A corrupted PTE has been detected.
    This might be a case of memory corruption. This may be because of a hardware issue such as faulty RAM, overheating (thermal issue) or because of a buggy driver. This problem might also be caused because of overheating (thermal issue).
    A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: hardware.sys .
    Google query: hardware.sys MEMORY_MANAGEMENT


    One crash dump has been found and analyzed. A third party driver has been identified to be causing system crashes on your computer. It is strongly suggested that you check for updates for these drivers on their company websites. Click on the links below to search with Google for updates for these drivers:


    If no updates for these drivers are available, try searching with Google on the names of these drivers in combination with the errors that have been reported for these drivers. Include the brand and model name of your computer as well in the query. This often yields interesting results from discussions on the web by users who have been experiencing similar problems.

    Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

    Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

  2. wdf01000.sys and ntoskrnl.exe BSOD

    I'm on Windows 10, 64bit

    Basically, whenever I try to update my LPC controller through Device Manager, BSOD with WDF_VIOLATION occurs (culprit being wdf01000.sys)

    So I try to use the driver verifier to see which driver is causing the BSOD, but then it causes BSOD (cultprit being ntoskrnl.exe)

    Have no idea which driver is causing them

    Please help!

    Here are my list of drivers and system info: Documents

  3. BSOD - driver_irql_not_less_or_equal (l1c63x64.sys)

    Hi Seung,

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused by BSOD - driver_irql_not_less_or_equal (l1c63x64.sys).

    Please let us know the make/model of your computer.

    The L1C63x64.sys is the Atheros LAN driver and I would suggest to uninstall and reinstall the Atheros LAN driver but install the latest Atheros LAN driver by visiting the manufacture's website and avoid using any LAN driver available though Windows Update.

    However the problem could also be with any VPN software and other software so make sure you have the latest version of each of these software.

    If the errors continue uninstall the VPN software and check if the issue persist.

    Hope this helps. Get back to us for further queries for BSOD - driver_irql_not_less_or_equal (l1c63x64.sys). We are happy to help!

    BSOD Constantly with different errors and .sys files

    I checked the BSOD but it was not one triggered by driver verifier - it was an IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a) and the analysis points to possible hardware failure.

    Your RAM seemed to check out OK, please test your GPU and also your hard disk.

    It may take some time, but please take the time you need to perform it properly.
    When above is done please make screenshots of the following
