BSOD on wake from sleep

8 posts in this topic

Hey, I have a three year old secondary PC that I just recently started using again after about a year in storage. I did a clean reinstall of Windows 7 x64 a few days ago. Now that I have everything set up for use I'm getting BSODs every time I wake the PC from sleep. I need some help tracking down the culprit.

Here are some details:

Problem signature:

Problem Event Name: BlueScreen

OS Version: 6.1.7601.

Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:

BCCode: f4

BCP1: 0000000000000003

BCP2: FFFFFA8007E73B30

BCP3: FFFFFA8007E73E10

BCP4: FFFFF80002D84460

OS Version: 6_1_7601

Service Pack: 1_0


I'm also attaching the minidump file to this post as I don't have the software necessary to decode them. I'm hoping someone here can help with it.

Check and reseat your RAM and video card.

Reseat hard drive cables, or replace them.

Update the chip set drivers, and video driver.

Do you have a sound card ? Reseat, update.

Do you have a wifi card inside the case ? Reseat, update.

Checked all my connections and drivers. I have a feeling that it's my Logitech Gaming Software that's doing it. Their 8.xx drivers have always been glitch as hell when it comes to waking from sleep. The minidump file says it could be caused by wininit.exe which probably leads to LCore.exe

Are the relevant power saving features enabled in the BIOS too ?

S1 & S3 are ones I remember, I believe there are more too, I have a vague memory of a similar problem with one of my old machines and that was the cause

I'm seeing I/O errors in the dump file, it's a common issue with some SSDs, especially OCZ drives with problematic controllers. You might want to upgrade the firmware/AHCI driver if you have an SSD. Disable any power saving utilities and set your power option to "High Performance'. Install Windows on a regular HDD to see if that also causes BSODs. Test your SSD/HDD with any utilities such as SeaTools

Update your Realtek RTL8168D/8111D Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC driver (Rt64win7.sys):

Update your drivers, and I mean :





If it doesn't help - BIOS and firmware (if any e.g. SSD) too.

I'll try the Ethernet driver next. I just updated my BIOS which I was unaware would default back to IDE mode; I switched it back to AHCI but now my SATA drives are not appearing as removable drives anymore. I'm currently doing a full format on a 1 TB external drive that hasn't been working so once that's finished I'll get back to troubleshooting.

Updated drivers, still does it.

I went ahead and did a reformat + fresh install of Win 7 and incrementally tested it after installing each device. It seemed to work up until I installed the latest NVidia video card drivers, after that I got a BSOD on wake again.

It could be a coincidence and that I was just lucky with my previous tests even though I sleep/woke it at least twice for each test as it doesn't do it every time, but close (~75%).

My next step is going to be installing old NVidia drivers and see how that works.
