BSOD Server 2008

We are experiencing a BSOD a few times a day on Server standard 2008.

The following is the details from Who Crashed.  I'm pretty sure it is a driver issue but cannot pin point which one.  

Can anyone help?


On Thu 6/20/2013 4:10:28 PM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntkrpamp.exe (nt+0x4DE8D)
Bugcheck code: 0xD1 (0x0, 0x2, 0x8, 0x0)
Bug check description: This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: ntkrpamp.exe .
Google query: ntkrpamp.exe DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Hello tmasltd,
you can use "BlueScreenView.exe" utility. It will give you right direction..

the dmp is corrupt
plse set your system to make minidmps

anyhow, start by running a ram test :  - to be sure about the basics
go to the download page, scroll down to the mirror section, and  click on a mirror to start the download
Download the UBCD, make the cd, and boot from it
Here 2 links, one to the general site, and a direct link to the download
since the downloaded file is an ISO file, you need to use an ISO burning tool
if you don't have that software, install cdburnerXP :

If you want also the Ram tested - run memtest86+ at least 1 full pass,  - you should have NO errors!
For disk Diagnostics run the disk diag for your disk brand (eg seagate diag for seagate drive)  from the HDD section - long diag !                        ultimate boot cd             download page

It seems I have got to the bottom of the issue.  We had Immunet AV installed on this server.  Looks like that was causing the issue.  I removed the AV on Friday and everything has been perfect over the weekend.

Thanks for the help guys.
