Windows 7 build 6956 blue screen of death

Post by aLinux »

i have installed windows 7 for about one week
and 2 days ago i was playing "driver parallel lines"
after 10 minutes of playing windows 7 gived me "blue screen of death"
i forced shut down my pc
after a short time i shut down my pc..
than on the next day i was waching some videos and after some time
i recived again the blue screen of death
i was watching videos with "Real Player" ...
i only have the blue screens only from i installed real player
10 minutes ago i uninstaled real player cause windows was buging me with a .dll from real player
something with "windows defender"

it is posible that blue screens be caused by real player ?
or mabe from my video drivers ? or else !!!
i have the default windows video drivers... that windows installed them
i can play games,videos,and i have aero enabled ..
works great

My computer is:
AMD athlon xp 64 3000+ working at 1800MHZ no overclock
2 gb ram
nvidia 7300 GT 256 ddr3
2 ide hdd
1 dvd-rw/ram
2 sound card
all drivers are installed and working.

its probably real player having trouble with the fact it wasn't made for 7 and cant find a dll or the dll isn't the same.

Just remember, it's a (pre)beta - it is not perfect nor totally stable, so don't rely on it as your primary OS. (Even if you find 7 being more reliable than vista, which is what I am finding at the moment)

Sorry for being offtopic, but does the BSOD in Windows 7 looks the same as the BSODs in XP/Vista?

According to the nVidia Forums:
It has been determined that the blue screen of death code 0x00000124 is caused by audio devices in Windows Vista. ...
I don't know if its the same in Windows 7, but try removing your audio drivers and see if it happens again, if it doesn't see if there is a newer package available from your oem.

even when i tryed to uninstall c-media i got blue screen
so i rebooted in safe mode and uninstaled all drivers

so it looks like c-media was the problem..
I SWICHED BACK TO XP

Near my house there is a computer running Vista -- every time I attempt to run GTA:San Andreas on it, Vista throws a BSOD without text.

Brief: Most probably Vista continues with the old style BSOD, but the most cases it just gives a BSOD with no text and informs you after rebooting.

6956 is a pre-beta, and one with an installer that was cobbled together at that. The VHD that it was ripped from would have a totally different hardware config to your computers, so obviously reliability is going to be a bit sketchy.

Most of the BSOD that I hear people reporting are more likely to result from hardware configuration problems rather than bugs, I don't believe the official release build suffered from a similar level of BSOD problems.

As 6956 was also a test build, and not intended for public consumption I would guess it is fair to assume that it wasn't passed through the same rigorous quality checks that betas that are intended for release are subjected to before it was compiled

It has; in Windows 3.0 there was no BSOD. It was the same from Windows 3.1 to ME, and was pretty much as it it now in NT, from the beginning (of course the font was different: it was 50-line light grey on blue).

Actually some of the early NT BSODs gave more technical than their modern equivalents.
Have a day.

I got a BSOD at boot for Win 7 5956, restarted and ran the startup repair thingy which I think just run sfc /scannow and it fixed it - I also have realplayer installed but didnt at the time, but have had no problems with realplayer ATM

why not just remove the sound driver? (i personally have my sound muted on on machine though i i guess it doesn't affect me as much as others)
