Over the past month or so I've been frequently getting BSOD's. So I formated, driver installs were in this order, nVidia 178.13 Vista 86x, then nVidia nForce 15.23 Vista 86x. Then SP1, then ran windows update, and installed all updates. I was heasetant about installing the WU raid driver, because some one said some where that it might cause conflicts with the nForce ones or some crap. Possible programs installed that could cause f'ups are, diskeeper, eset AV, .NET framework 1.1, visual c++ 2005?, superanti spyware, adaware, and a vista codec package. Used ccleaner to see these. In event viewer, main problems are: Alot of "Service Control Manager Eventlog Provider, Event ID 7000, Level: Error", A great lot of "IRQARB: ACPI BIOS does not contain an IRQ for the device in PCI slot (1 through to 20some thing)" And a heap of these... "Event 4385, Servicing. (Windows Servicing failed to complete the process of changing update 950125-8_neutral_PACKAGE from package KB950125(Update) into Staged(Staged) state) But there are a heap of different ones, are those windows update failures?.
Ive googled my problems big time to no avail, tried driver verifyer. It has to be drivers problems, but which ones! video and nforce should be fine...all signs point to windows updates including sp1... This was from my last BSOD: Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.0.6001.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 3081
Additional information about the problem:
OS Version: 6_0_6001
Service Pack: 1_0
Googled that and one person said some thing about ESET being a root cause. But no verification on this. So many people are having really similar problems. Also, alot of people are claiming its hard disk problems. Any ideas?
Vista Ultimate 86x
ASUS Striker Extreme
3x 1024mb OCZ PC2 8500 SLI Ready
WD 150gb raptor
Hitachi 500gb DS
OCZ 1040watt i think.
Pretty much it, do have a xfi fatality, but I took that out months ago, every time I had drivers for it installed, pc would BSOD... onboard sound works fine, I guesed it was a fault in the card, but now Im thinking it might be fine! Please be able to help some one... this sucks ass.
Also, one possible solution I found was disabling some ACPI thingy in device manager in safemode. Disable was greyed out, So i uninstalled it, was said it was a known problem that is with asus or some thing.
