Blue Screen twice

An end user's system has had two blue screen crashes today. They were not able to get the error codes but we are able to upload the memory dumps. The system has not had any new updates or drivers installed. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Did you make sure all the drivers and Windows updated??

You can perform an Memtest; download the ISO and create a boot image. Boot to Memtest and perform the test.


Then you can use Driver Verifier for Windows.  Here is some instructions, "Windows 7: Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers"

I would start by testing the memory modules.  download memtest x86 (http://www.memtest86.com/) and see if the modules are acting up.

error codes:
MEMORY_MANAGEMENT      0x0000001a      ntoskrnl.exe      ntoskrnl.exe+75bc0
SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION      0x0000003b      fltmgr.sys      fltmgr.sys+5039

We just recently replaced the memory and have tested it sense and it always comes back okay.

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

Could be that the video card is going bad.  can you try a different one?

I would also run a chkdsk /r on the drive just to make sure the driver isn't corrupted

I updated the driver and I am going to try and get a hold of a different video card. In the meantime I will see if the new video driver solved it.

Finally, other possibility is, your boot record may have been infected by a rootkit.  The easiest solution for this is to rebuild the boot record, but also possibly run an offline virus scan on the drive that can also scan the Boot record.  Avira had a rescue CD that was pretty good, but there are some others I'm sure

I will monitor the system after the video driver update and see. Do you know if the memory dmps indicate anything that you could see?

It could still be faulty memory even if the modules have recently been changed, that's what the warranty is for. I would run the mem tests again.  If this is a large manufacturer pc such as a Dell, it has built in diagnostics, where you can test all the hardware components.

IMAGE_NAME:  fltmgr.sys   belongs to FltMgr.sys file information

The process known as Microsoft Filesystem Filter Manager or FltMgr belongs to software
since it is a filesystem related error, it could be a disk problem, so run chkdsk on it

it also said :  PROCESS_NAME:  kldw.exe which in most cases is part of Kaspersky :  This files most often have description Kaspersky Dump Writer - See more at: http://systemexplorer.net/file-database/file/kldw-exe#sthash.213XvDqr.dpuf

so you could uninstall Kasperski - test with another AV, or reinstall it

the second dump refers to IE

Okay I will run chkdsk, test the new memory again and then look at Kasperski.

Note, that your video card has memory on it too, unless it's an integrated card with shared memory.  There's always the chance that the video memory could be flaking out too.  Also, check for things like heat.  make sure your heatsinks and fans are not clogged up.

I will possibly try the video card next if it happens again and clean out the system.

It looks like it was the video card driver. Thanks for the help.
