    Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable in Windows 10

    Driver Verifier is a diagnostic tool built into Windows 10, it is designed to verify both native Microsoft drivers and third party drivers. Driver Verifier's verification process involves putting heavy stress on drivers with the intention of making bad, outdated, incompatible or misbehaving drivers fail. The required result is a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) which will generate a crash dump for debugging purposes.

    For more details about Driver Verifier, see:

    Note Machines exposed to Driver Verifier will run very sluggishly due to the stress being applied to the drivers.

    Warning It is not advised to run Driver Verifier for more than 48 hours at a time. Disable Driver Verifier after 48 hours or after receiving a BSOD, whichever happens soonest.

    Always create a Restore Point prior to enabling Driver Verifier.

    Driver Related BSOD - Driver Verifier


    I enabled driver verifier because no dumps were being generated and I expected a driver was the issue. I need a password from IT to uninstall Symantec though, I'll have to see if I can get the password.

    The Ultimate Realtek HD Audio Driver Mod for Windows 10

    Hey Dj Urko, I am trying to install the realtek driver and I get the error 0x0001. I have disabled secure boot and Driver signature. I have the latest win 10 build. What am I doing wrong? Can u post the complete list of steps that I have to take? I have an asus z170 with alc1150.
    Thanks in advance
     
  6. The Ultimate Realtek HD Audio Driver Mod for Windows 10

    For those who just need to enable Dolby Digital Live 5.1 for your realtek sound card here is complete manual. Works for me in Win 10 Creators update (1703). Easy installation if you do not need these Dolby things just allow DDL 5.1

    Here is the post #27
    https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/...by-digital-live-dts-interactive.228612/page-2
    and here is the link for Realtek R2.80 driver doownload (can not be found on Realtek official site)
    MEGA

    You also need to enable Test mode before installation of the driver.

    Enable Test mode:

    Step 1. Open the Windows command promt as "Run as Administrator".

    Step 2. Run "bcdedit -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS" (without the "").

    Step 3. To finalize the process run "bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON" (without the "").

    Step 4. Reboot and you're done.

    To disable it do step 1 and run these commands on step 2 and 3:

    Step 2. "bcdedit -set loadoptions ENABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS" (without the "")

    Step 3. "bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING OFF" (without the "")

    Then do step 4 and you're done.


    Then you can continue to installation of the driver.

    I hope I helped you, if any questions, ask here I'll try to answer you if I'll be able.
