Even so, you can uninstall the Cisco software, then install a newer version (but, if it's working for you, let's see what happens).
If, after a while, the problems still occur, try uninstalling it completely then install a fresh copy (it has to do with how an uninstall differs from an update/upgrade).
There were many errors due to it in the Admin logfile.
If you decide to keep it disabled, please be sure to check for updates periodically.
Your UEFI/BIOS (version FD) dates from 2011. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system. If you are able to install the update through Windows (without booting from an external drive), then go ahead and update it. WARNING - if the computer might shut down during this procedure, please don't do it, as this may physically damage the computer and prevent it from booting.
NOTE: There is a beta BIOS version available - but it still dates from 2011. I am concerned that this system may have difficulties with W10 (as W10 communicates with the BIOS much more than previous OS's)
Only 6 Windows Update hotfixes installed. Most build 10586 (TH2/1511) systems have more than this. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available Windows Updates.
The actual number is not important. Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.
AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems.
NOTE: these symptoms were from the previous release of OverDrive. The new release uses the same driver name, but is dated from 4 November 2013.
Please un-install all AMD/ATI video stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Un-install a program.
Please note that I stated "video stuff", as some integrated processors may have the graphics chip built in (which may involve the chipset software).
Then, download (but DO NOT install) a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from http://www.amd.com (in the upper right corner of the page)
Use this procedure to install the DRIVER ONLY: http://www.sysnative.com/forums/showthread.php/668-ATI-video-cards-DRIVER-ONLY-installation-procedure
If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Un-install". Reboot for changes to take affect.
Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.
If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.
Other outdated drivers that should be updated include
- Broadcom network drivers
- chipset drivers
- Intel drivers (RST, MEI, etc)
- USB drivers (especially USB 3.0)
Use the Gigabyte website to get descriptions of these drivers, then check the website of the company that developed the device for W10 compatible drivers. Then, if not there, check the web for other sources.
1) If unable to find W10 drivers, you can attempt to install W8 or even W7 drivers
2) There's no guarantee that the system will work with any of these drivers. As a last resort, you may have to install W10 "clean" (to get the built in drivers) and then see what you can do about those devices that aren't functioning properly.
Beyond this I have these 5 suggestions:
1. Get ALL available Windows Updates. It may take several trips to get them all
2. Get ALL available, compatible updates for your OS from the manufacturer's website (to include BIOS/UEFI). See my note above about the BIOS and about updating the drivers.
3. Get ALL available, compatible updates for the programs and any additional hardware installed on your computer from the developer's website (I suspect problems here as there are several outdated drivers that I noted above).
4. Start with these free hardware diagnostics: http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html
5. If all of the hardware tests pass, then run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: http://www.carrona.org/verifier.html
6. Again, As a last resort, you may have to install W10 "clean" (to get the built in drivers) and then see what you can do about those devices that aren't functioning properly. This will give you the most stable system that you can expect with W10 - but this does not mean that it will be stable enough for you to use reliably (but, I expect, it'll be no worse than it is now).
