Moderatly skilled PC user here: Have had a few BSODs lately that seem to be happening from a video, but GPU is fine and not heating too horribly, relatively new GTX 285- also did 10 runs through memtest just in case.

They have variously been caused by drivers for my FortKnox Firewall (Once), ntoskrnl.exe, (3), and hal.dll. All happen when playing a video of some type, never happens in any game. Also my Media Player Classic seems to be crashing when I try to open any video type- though Flash player and VLC player work fine. For some reason I also think it might be a problem with a network adapter or something too...


EDIT- Tried to attach a rar'd and raw dmp file but no go...?

Here's a tiny bit of info on the latest anyway.

Download BlueScreenView:

unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe to run the program.
when scanning is done, go to EDIT - Select All
Go to FILE - SAVE Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all of the content, and paste it into your next reply

Yeah I have that, I figured a rar file would be allowed before a text file actually...

EDIT - This OS installation is relatively recent too, I think I might have forgotten some kind of comm driver..

EDIT- Just noticed it's just the main info and not everything else, arg- do it when I get home.

Hello,

Have you tried re-installing your video card's driver?

Also, is it the latest version of the driver? If yes, try rolling back to the previous version. If no, switch to the latest version.

Im almost 100% sure this is not a GPU issue of any kind. I have fresh installed the latest-ish drivers. Forget if I did a total fresh install of drivers, I will when I get home, but again I really dont think it's the GPU..

Let's try the obvious. Uninstall your Fortknox firewall and see if you get the same problem

Well it's sort of hard to test the problem, it happens when playing some type of streaming/online video, but I believe it was happening before FortK was in- also even if I go back and play the same video it doesn't always BS. (FK was installed the day after that first crash).

Well, if you don't want to do that then let's take the basic steps for that error:

1) Download and install the latest drivers for your video and sound cards (obtain them from the oem websites, not from Windows Update)
2) Go to the website of your system manufacturer and make sure you have the current chipset driver and bios version
3) Download memtest, burn it to disk, run it (www.memtest.org)
4) Right-click on a command prompt icon and open as administrator. In the command prompt window type:chkdsk /r (then press ENTER). You'll be told the disk is in use and asked if you want to run checkdisk on the next boot. Say yes, exit the command prompt window, and reboot.
