Hi, keep on receiving a bsod at random intervals. Need some assistance determining what component is causing the problem. This only started happening since upgrading from windows 7 to windows 8. Thanks!

Attached is the minidump file. Performed analysis and states atpi.sys is the cause.

it points to the atapi .sys, which is a disk driver file included in windows
can you reinstall windows? if not, you may have to claim a warranty repair or replacement

Hi,

Is there a way to identify which attached disk is causing the cash. I would like to zero in on the exact disk that is causing issue.

Thanks

Hi.

> Attached is the minidump file
Why just one? Are the others identical? Always atapi.sys?

You might need simply update the mobo drivers. Check at mobo vendor's website for newest drivers.

I actually cannot get updated drivers from the mobo manufacturer for win 8, they only win 7 available.

Yes, the minidump result is always identical each time a bsod occurs.

Are you using any Virtual Sofware?

Either update or uninstall as it may not be compatible with Windows 8.
eg: VPC, VirtualBox, Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120, PowerISO, MagicDisc.
