    Frequent BSOD


    I believe the problem is with Qualcomm Atheros AR5BWB222 Wireless internet adapter. I've uninstalled/updated and downdated the driver but no go. BSOD seems to happen at periods of inactivity, when I might step away for a couple minutes. I recently switched to Kernel Dump but have been unable to get the proper symbols into WinDbg (Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.wrong.symbols.exe) I'm currently working on understanding how to use WinDbg but would appreciate anything you might be able to gather from the minidumps.

    EDIT:
    ************* Symbol Loading Error Summary **************
    Module name Error
    ntkrnlmp - This error is unknown: 0x400. Please contact the debugger team to report this error. (Mail: L: windbgfb@microsoft.com)

    Continuously receiving different Blue Screen of Death

    Frequent and different BSODs is something frequently caused by faulty RAM memory.

    Frequent BSOD?

    The minidump file points to the SynTP.sys :

    BugCheck D1, {ffffc78d240de004, 2, 0, fffff80dfdcf5174}

    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for SynTP.sys

    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for SynTP.sys

    Probably caused by : SynTP.sys ( SynTP+95174 )

    The SynTP.sys is the Synaptics touchpad driver so try uninstalling and reinstalling the Synaptics touchpad driver using the latest version available from the manufacturer of the notebook.

    I've been perusing driver related issues but will do further inspection of hardware.

    Thanks...

    I ran Memtest86+ USB provided from PassMark because my optical drive seems to have failed and the USB version from memtest.org I had issues with. The test ran 5.6 hours with no errors.

    This device is a laptop (Acer Aspire V3-772g) and my cpu and graphics chip run a little hot (approaching 70C) at times. I've planned to clean the fan but have delayed this really for no good reason. I'll try and get around to it soon. I don't think this is a factor as I've had BSOD early after boot and entering Windows.

  6. Hi there. I just analysed the last 5 bsod dumps. There are no drivers to blame and we have different bugcheck codes there. The cause for this could be hardware related. These are the last two dumps:
    Code: 0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (28.05.2017 18:43:47) [Windows 10] CAUSED BY: ntoskrnl PROCESS: ntoskrnl.wrong.symbols.exe Usual causes: Device driver ============================================================================================================== 0x00000019: BAD_POOL_HEADER (28.05.2017 05:25:13) [Windows 10] CAUSED BY: ntoskrnl PROCESS: ntoskrnl.wrong.symbols.exe Usual causes: Device driver[/quote]
    Its says that "device drivers" are the usual cause for codes like this. I think theres really a 50:50 chance for driver/hardware.

    1. I saw you have done a few things like memtest. Did u run it at least 8 passes?

    2. You can try to remove Malwarebytes and BitDefender for testing and using Windows Defender instead.

    3. Theres a newer BIOS version for your Notebook available: Product support

    4. There are a bunch of errors in eventlog which show that the INTEL GPU driver crashed:
    Code: 2017-04-29T07 54:09.313 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-04-29T09 10:44.509 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-02T09 57:41.517 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-02T11 26:29.818 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-02T11 41:18.245 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-05T17 01:11.897 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-06T17 41:31.954 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-09T10 05:07.850 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-09T16 54:07.766 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-10T11 01:39.700 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-12T17 04:57.996 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-13T10 16:12.518 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-17T17 50:39.019 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-20T10 38:26.312 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-22T23 59:41.648 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-23T15 28:34.462 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: . 2017-05-25T19 52:37.173 Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.: .[/quote]
    Try to update the INTEL GPU driver or roll back to a previous version.

    1. I saw you have done a few things like memtest. Did u run it at least 8 passes?
    >>I'm not certain. I quickly set it up last night then this morning quickly requested the results be written but I can't find them. I'll start it later to see what the default is set for. I was thinking it was 8 passes. I'm using PassMark's USB version due to issues I was having with memtest.org's USB version.

    2. You can try to remove Malwarebytes and BitDefender for testing and using Windows Defender instead.
    >> I contacted Malwarebytes and they notified me of conflicts with my Atheros Qualcomm driver. I disabled Malwarebytes but still got BSOD. As for BitDefender.. I also disabled it but in that period of time received no BSOD so it's not cleared yet. I was hoping to get something specific from my attempts at WinDbg before longer periods without my virus protection. I still need to get the correct symbol loaded and am hoping to hear back from the WinDbg team.

    3. Theres a newer BIOS version for your Notebook available: Product support
    >>I've just downloaded and will probably install very shortly.

    4. There are a bunch of errors in eventlog which show that the INTEL GPU driver crashed:
    Try to update the INTEL GPU driver or roll back to a previous version.

    >>I've gone forward and backward with this. It's a screwy driver (specific to Acer config) that controls timing between Intel 4600 and Geforce 760M. I have elevated CPU/GPU temps and have planned to open it up, remove and clean the fan then also replace thermal paste but haven't gotten to it yet. I suspected maybe this but then have had BSOD early after boot. I understand how the sum of this mess might be the problem but still was looking to see if something specific can be deduced. I've run "bluescreen" on the minidumps and got same results. I want to peruse WinDbg but the symbol issue needs to be resolved.

    Thanks for the help and pointers.
