Been fighting this for over a week. 

 

Bluescreen view shows that ntoskrnl.exe is causing a blue screen.  The address in stack is ntoskrnl.exe+6f9a9.  I googled that and got little info.  It just randomly blue screens multiple times a day. 

 

· OS - Windows 7
· x86 (32-bit) or x64 ?x64
· What was original installed OS on system? Windows 7
· Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? Full Retail
· Age of system (hardware) 1-2 years
· Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? Less then a week

· CPU - Core i5
· Video Card Intel HD 4600
· MotherBoard - (if NOT a laptop) Laptop
· Power Supply - brand & wattage (skip if laptop) Laptop

· System Manufacturer - Lenovo
· Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom): W540

· Laptop or Desktop? Laptop. 

 

Perfmon and sysnative file collection App info posted.  If you have any other questions please ask,   and thank you very much in advance.

ntoskrnl.exe (also seen as ntkrnlpa.exe, ntkrnlmp.exe, or ntkrpamp.exe) is the kernel (core) of the Windows operating system.  It is protected by security features and the Windows System File Checker.  As such, if ntoskrnl.exe was to blame, you'd be experiencing many more problems other than the occasional BSOD.

In most cases ntoskrnl.exe was blamed because a driver (typically a 3rd party driver) has corrupted the memory space that ntoskrnl.exe considers as it's own.  When this happens, ntoskrnl.exe typically finds unknown data (from the 3rd party driver) in it's memory space.  At this point the OS panics and throws a BSOD to prevent damage to the system.

If the culprit (the offending 3rd party driver) hasn't exited yet, then a BSOD analyst may be able to find traces of it in the reports/dumps.  If the culprit has exited, then the chase is on and further tests/reports will be needed to help identify what actually caused it.

More info here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ntoskrnl.exe

Only 291 Windows Update hotfixes installed.  Most systems with SP1 have 350-400 or more.  Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).
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.

This device is disabled in Device Manager:

 

Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows    ROOT\NET\0000    This device is disabled.

If it's not needed, please uninstall it.

If it is needed, please enable it and then update it's software to the latest compatible version.  Then feel free to disable it AFTER updating it.

Please note that even though the device is disabled, the Cisco driver is present in the memory dump - implying that there was some sort of interaction with the driver even though it is disabled.

Also, the driver dates from 2008, so it may have issues that have since been fixed by updates.

 

Out of 25 memory dumps there were 10 different BSOD  (aka STOP or BugCheck) error codes.  The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things (the list is not in any sort of order):
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- dirt/dust/hair/fur/crud inside the case.  Blow out the case/vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum as they can cause damage to the system)
- missing Windows Updates
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html or http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html ).

Please get a head start on the hardware diagnostics - they are located here:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html
Please finish ALL of them and let us know the results
If they ALL pass, then try Driver Verifier according to these instructions:  http://www.carrona.org/verifier.html
