Hi, I was watching a video on KMPlayer and listening to some music on Groove Music App at the same time and I wonder if it somehow caused a blue screen error.



I looked it up online and Installed BlueScreenView App and got a report back:

I would really appreciate it if you guys could tell me what's causing this. Thank you in advance. :)

OH and since I suspect this error has got something to do with my one of drivers, I'm providing a complete list of my installed drivers in a txt file.

Would you mind attaching the actual .dmp file. Just zip it up and attach it to your next post.
You may need to copy it to another folder first as Windows is finicky about what you can do inside C:\Windows\MiniDump
I'm no expert, but I'll have a look and see if I can see any glaring issues. Our resident BSOD guy is not currently around.

That particular issue can sometimes be a result of and older BIOS, so you might check and see if the computer manufacturer or the motherboard manufacturer has an update.
Additionally, if you are currently over clocking anything (CPU, GPU, memory) please return those setting to proper defaults.

Hey there, I highly appreciate your well-timed reply. I uploaded the zipped dmp file as you requested. I checked my BIOS version with ASUS's website and it seems that it's the latest version. I just bought this laptop. And honestly I don't remember doing a thing with overclocking stuff since I'm no PC gamer. But I remember AMD Catalyst driver had some over clocking options which I did not touch at all, however, I reset all settings.

Thank you for your kind help,
Grey.

I don't see anything that actually looks scary.
A single driver that has been known to historically cause some problems at least since Windows 7
AODDriver2.sys 2/11/2014 (AMD Over Drive) it looks a little old and may need updating or even uninstalling.
As I said, I'm no expert, but it looks like it may have just been a one off.
Personally, I'd continue using it and see if a pattern develops or if you can replicate the problem. A single dump file is not much to go on.

If it continues do a couple of the normal diagnostics.
Use the native check disk utility from an elevated command prompt, simply type
chkdsk C: /R
hit enter
answer "Y"
type exit
reboot

Additionally run memtest86
You can get the ISO from here http://www.memtest86.com/download.htm
burn it to a CD or USB ThumbDrive and boot your machine let it run over night if possible unless it starts pitching errors right away, then you have some work to do.

I mention those two because basically it pitched a page fault.
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.
This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000038, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000000, bitfield :
bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
Arg4: fffff80222223ad2, address which referenced memory

And then blamed the kernel (ntoskrnl) which is pretty much a catch all.

It could still be a driver, either the one I mentioned above or looking at some further details I see some mention of
fffff802`244fa708 fffff800`5646a1a2 dxgkrnl!DXGADAPTER: PowerRuntimeComponentIdleStateCallback+0x16a
Which may indicate something going on with the GPU driver, although the actual GPU driver itself never shows in the stack.

Thank you for your help and time. Would you suggest that I reinstall the GPU driver also?
