Driver Verifier Doesn't Work...

Q: Driver Verifier Doesn't Work...


In Windows 7, I am trying to figure out if I have any faulty drivers. I have been having BSODs for a while, and I've removed RAM etc. So the next step was to test drivers.

But I can't run Driver Verifier. No matter which drivers I select, the Driver Verifier causes a blue screen as the windows 7 logo starts to come together. I have to clear the settings in Safe mode to get it back.

Is there any way to fix this, or any other way to check my drivers?

(My most recent BSODs have said caused by dxgmms1.sys and tcpip.sys -- lots of IRQL_not_less_or_equal and system_thread_exception_not_handled.)

A: Driver Verifier Doesn't Work...

The purpose of Driver Verifier is to cause a Blue Screen of Death.
Analysis of the memory dump files will then (if it's worked) let the analyst know what driver caused it.

You'll know this because there will be a Driver Verifier Enabled memory dump.

FWIW - I had a system at work today that would spit out the IRQL error messages, but not the Driver Verifier Enabled error messages. I finally enabled all settings in Driver Verifier and then rebooted. An hour and a half later the system was still booting with the Windows 7 splash screen.

The point here is that the settings that you use in Driver Verifier are critical - and are determined by the type of BSOD events you are getting (for example, if you have BAD_POOL_CALLER errors, then you want to enable the POOL checking options in Driver Verifier).

Please zip up the contents of the C:\Windows\Minidump directory and upload/attach the .zip file to your next post.

I have had BSOD for a while and being super busy I did not have time to look at it and get it fixed. Well Being a computer guy I assumed I could fix it myself. But with tons of research and trying to use every guide I can find I decided to try here(probably should have came here first). Today I started Driver Verifier and having it check all drivers. It crashed a couple times before I realized it was a process I had to stop. I then came here to try and get some help sorting out the driver. Thank you in advance for any and all help anyone provides.

I was using Google Earth, and my external monitor went black (this happens when I'm out of RAM, but I have additional 4 GB paging file, and 16 GB physical RAM), I turned my laptop to sleep (usually I can fix this black screen problem by turning to sleep and back on) and back on, and it showed BSOD - SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION:

I recently bought a C.D. and wanted to upload it to iTunes and put it on my iPod, but it would not load. I thought, "Oh, it must have a security thing." So I tried it in a C.D. player. It worked. I tried once more with the computer, and it failed. The driver shows up. But there is no C.D. I even tried another C.D. to see if it was just the one I had bought, but it wasn't. Any ideas?

A:My CD Driver doesn't want to work.

Hi lol_alex_lol30 and welcome to TSF

I can help you with some basics, but you will need to check further to get all the data you need, as I don't upload to iTunes.

I'm assuming you bought an audio CD. I'm also assuming that iTunes would like to see MP3 audio files....You will need to find that out. This though, is true. When you burn an audio CD from music files, those files are most likely in the form of WAV on your harddrive. They are burned onto the CD with a .cda extension and are named track 1, track 2, etc. The song names are not shown on the CD if you view it with Windows Explorer.

Extracting songs from an audio CD to harddrive is called ripping the song. Songs end up on your harddrive in the form of "songname.wav". songname will be Track1, Track2, etc. and you will have to rename each to have the actual song title associated with the song. WAV files are quite large and about 24 songs is the maxium that you can burn onto an audio CD.

Mpeg level 3 (MP3) is a compression specification that can be used to make much smaller audio files. A 20,000,000 (20 meg) WAV file will compress into a MP3 file that is about 2 meg or less. A file that is 10 to 11 times smaller than the WAV file. I'm sure you can appreciate the fact that small files upload much faster than very large ones. Also you can put about 240 mp3 files on a CD, but only about 24 wav files. You could also appreciate that your ear can't tell the difference between the sound of... Read more

Hi all.

My computer has always had intermittent BSOD but generally it's been only 1-2 a month and after a system restart everything works fine. In the last couple of weeks I've been getting BSOD after only a few minutes of operation every time I start up and generally after these errors the computer won't boot - sometimes it will be a black screen after BIOS check, sometimes it won't even get that far - just black screen without the BIOS check even starting. Usually the only way to get it to boot again is to disconnect the power and remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard. I've run driver verifier which has indeed generated it's own minidumps but I don't really understand what these error reports are trying to tell me - if someone could take a look and point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

Hi rx123yz. Your issue sounds like that Windows have installed its own drivers over new ones that you installed. Remove all the old drivers and use Driver Sweeper. This little software removes all the bits of the old drivers. Below is the link to download the S/W. Before uninstalling the old drivers, download the latest drivers for your card from Sevenforums or from Nvidia site and install them after uninstalling and sweeping off the old drivers with driver sweeper.

I?ve got some problem with my W-LAN device. Recently I?ve got a strange feeling about it because some things didn?t work correctly, so I decided to reinstall the driver. It didn?t work directly (I don?t know why), so I tried to uninstall it first, to install it again. Now I got this message:

This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)

An update for the latest driver was useless because I already got the latest one. I tried both installing it from the device manager several times, which failed everytime with this message to come, and by the driver setup (there is a folder available on my computer with all drivers installed on it), which seemed not to have any effect, although it said "Installation complete". Has anyone a solution for me?
I?m going to reinstall my Windows soon, but it?ll take some weeks to that. But until that, I need my W-LAN to work again!

I recently started a new job and was given a new Dell Laptop. I am having seemingly randomly BSOD issues. Some days it doesn't happen at all and some days it can happen up to ten times. I've got several BSOD errors (mainly CRITICAL PROCESS DIED). I believe it's a driver

related issue. I've tried updating all my drivers and firmware to no avail.

I used the Driver Verifier and immediately got errors with sedfilter.sys and symefasi64.sys. I had to boot into safe mode to turn the verifier off. I tried the verifier without those two enabled and got DRIVER VERIFIER DETECTED VIOLATION.

Hey guys,

Yesterday I formatted and reinstalled windows Vista on my new Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop. I've gone through the whole driver CD, installed everything there, but wireless still doesn't work! It doesn't find any networks. I realize that the drivers CD just has the default 1720 drivers, so some things might be different (for example, the default video card is 8400, but mine has an 8600, and the driver for that isn't on the CD). Perhaps I require a different wireless driver?

If that is the case, how do I know which one I have and where to get the propoer driver for it?

Any help is appreciated!

Thank you.

Hello. I have Radeon HD 3850 AGP and Win7, and I tried to do almost everything ...
I installed 9.12 drivers, 9.12 drivers with adding CL_91526 from the topic above), 9.11 drivers, 9.11 drivers with Hotfix (ATI), 9.11 drivers with adding CL_91526, manual driver install by right click . Absolutely no changes and everytime the same ... During and after installing (before reboot) no changes in Device Manager, having "ATI Radeon 3850 " (or "ATI Radeon 3800 series" or something like that...) with yellow triangle and Microsoft Co. driver. And after reboot no changes with it, an error message with something like "Driver didn't install correctly, please install proper driver" ( though in ATI install log you can see that everything was installed succesfully). So after reboot I still see my VGA like "ATI Radeon 3800 series" with Microsoft driver and of course no changes in monitor resolution and all. If I try to delete microsoft driver (and device), and then install radeon drivers , during installation I absolutely just don't have any VGA in Device manager. And after reboot Win7 "finds" VGA and install from internet microsoft driver, so I can see "ATI Radeon HD 3850 (Microsoft Corporation WDDM 1.1)" in Device Manager.

I think that radeon drivers don't install (or don't install correctly), and Win7 ignores (or doesn't see) them.

Welcome to seven forums AngieM: Unfortunately you have a pretty old system a socket 478 board I would suggest first off to use 32 git seven and try the method in this thread to try and get your driver to install. Not every systems hardware is up to running windows seven Install AGP Drivers for HD 3850, 3650, 2400 PRO This is the only method I know of that will install the agp driver, Are you sure you are following the directions EXACTLY the way they are written and installing form device manager? If so then it is possible your system may just be to outdated to run win 7 Sorry to tell you but?. Fabe I wanted to add you might want to uninstall the driver then use driver sweeper to make sure all remnants of the previous driver are removerd before trying again

Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 7 on my notebook PC. I had to use a Microsoft installation disk because unfortunately, serious errors resulted after I installed from the HP recovery program. Consequently the HP drivers that were installed automatically with the recovery program weren't installed on my system. I had to install several of them from the HP support site. I got everything to work except for the Touch volume control, or the Volume Scroll Zone as referred to by HP in the service guide. This is the device located just above the keyboard that increases or decreases speaker volume when you drag you finger on it. I installed the Quick Launch button driver but that only applied to the mouse and pointer touchpad. I looked at the devices listed in my startup configuration. I saw the synaptics pointing device and the HP quick launch buttons listed. So is the IDT PC audio driver.  What am I missing? Where I can I find it to activate the touch volume control?

The Stylus Pro 7600 is now a really old printer, the last supported driver was for XP but it worked in Windows 7 and I believe to some extent in 8 although I never did try it.

It s a really good reliable large format printer though and very affordable in parts, ink and the second-hand purchase price.

However alas Windows 10 doesn't like it, I did the upgrade to 10 (and then the downgrade) from windows 7 but it will not see the driver it sees the device but calls it a USB high speed device or something like that and compatibility mode didn't seem to help.

So unless there is a clever work around and I'd love that to happen I'm stuck on Windows 7 for the duration.

Suggestions welcome.

Hi there!
I just got my new Asus Vivobook s400ca running Win8.1, a few weeks ago.
It really runs great, although I managed to find one problem. Since this is a laptop without a detachable screen,
I didn't really find any good reason for having the touch keyboard toolbar () in my task bar, since I was pretty sure I'd never need it. So I disabled the keyboard, which worked out fine but the toolbar was still there.

I then went on to try to remove it by using one of EightForum's .reg files for that purpose.

This did, as described, remove the toolbar, but apparantly it stopped the mouse pad driver as well, even though the mouse pad itself basically works. (no gestures or scrolling though.)

As you can see here, There's no driver running.

And in the ASUS hub, it's also impossible to turn it on. It just keeps saying it's off.

So I decided to use another .reg file that I found with the initial one, that should basically just rollback the effect that the other one had, but to no avail.

It just made the toolbar come back.
So I don't really know where to go from here. Any suggestions?
Also, if there is anyone who knows what to do about that toolbar, please do tell! [:

Thanks in advance! [:

For any windows update you may need Run the driver verifier against any new (or suspect) drivers. If that doesn't reveal the corrupting driver, try enabling speical pool. Both of these features are intended to catch the corrpution at an earlier ponit where the offending driver can be ID.

A:driver verifier

While I don't use XP, there are some things that you can try. First, open explorer or My Computer and click on help, click on the index tab and type driver. Search for the driver verifier topic in the left pane. To get to safe mode, usually the F8 key pressed during the boot (right after the screen counts memory or displays the system configuration in DOS mode). You see a selection to choose from, select safe mode. Safe mode does not install many of the drivers and allows you to remove defective software/drivers.

Your PC rebooting alot while on the internet could be signs of a corrupt system file or a virus. Also, there is a setting to automatically reboot on a failure (old Blue Screen of Death). You would want to remove that check to see the BSODs that will tell you which driver is failing. Yes, BSODs are difficult to read, but if you post the first 2-3 lines at the top, we can help determine what might be the problem.

I am not sure how you get to the automatic reboot feature in XP, but in w2k you will find it by right-clicking on My Computer, select Manage, right-click on the top entry and select Properties. Click the Advanced tab, and the startup and recovery button.

......Or more accurately, how do I use it?

I've been getting the blue screen of death way too much lately, at seemingly random times, and after rebooting and reporting error, Microsoft's explanation is that it is a software or hardware driver that is causing the problem. (real specific eh?)

The blue screen once told me (it changes slightly every time) to run the Driver Verifier. The problem is that's all it said. Does anyone know what this is, where it's located, how to run it? Running a normal search returns nothing.

I am reasonably sure that the driver in question is a beta version of a game [Dungeon Siege II] I recently got, but before I delete it I want to make sure it is, and that there isn't anything else contributing to the problem.


A:What is the Driver Verifier?

BEFORE using verifier.exe confirm that you can do a successful start in Safe Mode:

The reason for this is that if you run verifier and it finds a buggy driver it will stop you cold with a blue screen. You will not be able to recover from it or boot to normal mode.

Here's how it works: go to Start > run and run:


accept the default settings and be prepared for a reboot.

If you get a blue screen stop error, note the driver listed. There will also be a verifier log of what drivers did not have Microsoft signature verification (that does not necessarily mean they are bad)

IF you get the Blue Screen Stop message you must reboot to Safe Mode and run:

verifier /reset

to stop verifier from running on every boot. You will want to do this anyway after a few tests. If nothing is found you can reset it from normal mode.

Ok, so I've re-installed Windows XP (SP2) and after it booted up, I noticed that my onboard ethernet adapter wasn't recognised.

That's when I simply forwarded the windows hardware installer to an XP folder i found in the zip file. But still, it doesn't work.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but what does Driver Verifier do exactly?

I understand it stresses the drivers chosen, flags if faulty and causes a crash (correct me if I'm wrong).

I'm currently using it to debug some BSOD's that have been plaguing me, but here where I'm confused. Wouldn't it always crash at some point? If it were the drivers, the system would crash, but if it were, lets say, hardware, the system should crash anyway (as it would be stressed normally).

I ask this because in my attempts to play Borderlands 2, a game that pretty much always crashes with the Verifier off (something I'm currently trying to figure out) it strangely works with it on.

Do I understand it all wrong? Please forgive my beginner-level inquiry. Any reply would be great. Thanks.

A:Driver Verifier inquiry.

You use driver verifier to force crashes in situations in which you do not already have dumps/minidumps available for analysis, the point is mostly to create dumps and logs then switch it back off again.

Borderlands requires .net 3.5 , latest video drivers, and the latest vcredist.
If you already have them you might consider reparing/reinstalling them.

99% of game crashes are caused by either a prerequisite not being met (.net / vc )
the graphics driver is installed improperly or has problems.
Audio driver.

In some cases specific antivirus apps will cause games to crash.
Sadly I can't give you any reason why it would NOT crash with verifier on, that kind of defies logic.

In 17 of 20 memory corruption was the probable cause. It was probably caused by a driver and so driver verifier needs to be run again.

I would do the following

Remove sptd.sys

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp,sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure - Downloads

I'm running Driver Verifier, based on other posts, due to BSOD with Bad Pool Header error. BSOD has only happened a couple of times, although on several occasions my mouse and keyboard will stop responding and I have to reboot. This made me think that the BSOD might be driver related.
Since I started Driver Verifier, programs are running very slow and the fans in the PC seem to be running at top speed. It's the fans running so fast and loud that have me worried. I attempted to turn driver verifier off to see if that made any difference. But I got an error message that said "current operation requires admin privilege."  I am the only administrator on this PC.
What is the best thing for me to do now?

A:Driver Verifier & BSOD

Approximately 90% of BSOD's are due to 3rd party drivers
10% or less are due to hardware problems
Less than 1% are due to Windows drivers (on a fully updated system)
Driver Verifier is supposed to cause BSOD's - that's it's purpose.
It loads extra routines for the drivers - so it's supposed to slow the system down.
Open up verifier.exe from the RUN command
Select "Delete existing settings", then click on the "Finish" button.
Then reboot the system so that the changes can take effect.
It is not recommended to just run Driver Verifier without having diagnosed previous BSOD's.
And, depending on the settings that you've used, the results can be interpreted in different ways.
Also, Driver Verifier can expose weakness' in drivers that you won't see in normal mode - so you'll be attempting to diagnose problems that don't even exist.
So, my question is..."What is wrong with your system that you decided to run Driver Verifier?"
If it was BSOD's, Please run this report collecting tool so that we can provide a complete analysis:
When done a Notepad document will open with the name of the file and it's location. (By default it'll be a .zip file located on your Desktop)
Simply upload the .zip file with your next post and we'll move on from there.

I've been getting various BSODs that point to a bum driver on my computer somewhere. I've been trying to determine which it is using XP's verifier.exe program.

If I "automatically select all drivers installed on this computer" I get a BSOD upon booting with the following stop code:

0x000000C4 (0x0000003C, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).

However, if I "select driver names from a list" and choose all of the drivers listed by default, I get no error. I suppose that means the bum driver is not located in /windows/drivers, but since its time consuming to select other .sys files throughout my computer, I was hoping someone could help me out by interpretting the error code or suggesting another shortcut. Thanks in advance for your help!

A:verifier.exe and finding driver

Hi Lujan

First of all - see if there's any relevant information to your trouble with the Driver Verification tool in Microsoft's overview of that tool --- --- for example, note that there are known issues with IO Verification if "Deadlock Detection" is enabled on a system with Norton Antivirus [which has a fairly large installed base].

Second - can you provide an example of a BSOD that occurs when you are not using the Driver Verification tool? There should be examples already stored in your EventViewer logs. These should specifically point to modules & help with your trouble-shooting. [Start/Control Panel/Performance and Maintanence/Administrative Tools/EventViewer ... right-click on an event and select "Properties" to view the full details].

Research several instances, and see if there are persistent correlations between the errors and specific modules. If the errors seems random in nature, it could be a more widespread data-corruption problem - that just happens to have nailed a driver or two. Data corruption can be traced to hardware and hardware configuration issues - incorrect Bios settings & timings, faulty memory, or faulty hard drive, hard drive cable, incorrect cabling, damaged motherboard port ...etc... If the errors do indeed seem to strike random modules, test the basic hardware: memory ( ) --- and hard drive ( Read more

Greetings and thanks in advance for your help.

Once a month I get a kernel error when I come to my Dell computer which I leave on all the time. It is a power error that I believe is caused by my external sound card that the monitors are hooked up to (this is only a hypothesis).

Anyhow I read up on Verifier that you can run to check drivers especially 3rd party non-microsoft drivers. So I went into the program and then check off that I am a developer and asked to verify all the non-microsoft drivers and uncheck two other drivers that I was instructed to in an online article.

Next thing that happens is that it asks you to restart and I do and then I get blue screen. I tried several other times and got blue screen each time. The screen flashes so fast I couldn't get the error code.

I ran in safe mode went into VERIFIER and then deleted all settings restarted and then it worked.

Does anyone have any ideas to what has caused this issue? Your input is apprecited.

A:Verifier Issue: Blue Screen after running Verifier in Windows 7

It's doing exactly what it's supposed to. Any driver problems will cause a bug check, aka blue screen or BSOD.
You can disable the automatic restart if you want it to stop on the screen so you can read it, or read the info in the Event Viewer, or run the dump files through the Windows Debugger.

Tp disable the automatic restart:
Click Start, type systempropertiesadvanced, then press Enter
Click the Settings... button under Startup and Recovery
Uncheck Automatically restart in the System failure section

I am having some issues with my GPU, mostly rare random crashes like when opening GPU-Z,
and with later Crimson i can crash in games as well, don't think it happens (if not super rarely?) on Catalyst.
Anyhow, i had Driver Verifier on as per instructions, and noticed when i woke up today that it had crashed during the night, the cause for atikmpag.sys.
So here are the dump files etc.
The only thing that was on during the night was Avisynth converting a file, and the settings use GPU which i guess might be the cause (not that it normally crashes, but for the verifier).

ConvertToYV12(matrix="Rec601", interlaced=false).Normalize(0.9)
fft3dgpu(sigma=1.3, plane=3)

Basically ff3dgpu used the GPU, but still not sure if that's the thing to blame, only had verifier on for like a day, but it's the only thing that was running during the night.
Hopefully the dumps will tell something more.

A:Driver Verifier - atikmpag BSOD

Hmm, looking at the event viewer i can see that Windows tried to update my GPU Driver right before the crash.
This is weird, i can't find anything in the update logs, the update never succeeded either, and i can't even find the update if i search now.
I don't have the latest driver for other reasons so i know there is other drivers, but i should have disabled it from updating, makes no sense.

If I don't get a bsod within the first 1 hour of it running should I turn it off and assume my drivers are not the problem since when playing games I always get the bsod within the first 15 minutes.

One more questions, they recommend that I turn off auto restart when I get a bsod, but if I do get a bsod with auto restart disabled how would I boot up again during a bsod? would I just press and hold the power button on the pc?

here's the link to my other thread in case you want to look at it.
How do I read/analyze this dump file so I know what is causing the BSO - Windows 10 Forums

I decided to run a driver verification check on windows 7 using the built-in Driver Verifier...

The worst possible decision I have made...First the Comp blue-screened multiple times and got stuck into a reboot loop, I was eventually able to access the desktop however every last driver was malfunctioning or missing

All I can say is System Restore saved the day once again and was able to restore the system

Just thought I might give everyone a heads up...DO NOT run Driver Verifier

I've had to deal with BSODs for ages, and every couple of months I try to find a source. I've used WinDbg on every dump that I've been able to generate and found little real information. Recently I thought I'd got lucky when I used Driver Verifier when it flagged both the SoftEther VPN and Avast driver, but soon after I got the CRITICAL STRUCTURE CORRUPTION BSOD.

I'm currently running verifier to try and force another BSOD out of the system in case there is a driver problem, but the issue has been there so long that I'm fairly certain it's a hardware problem. I tested the RAM with memtest86, no problem ever occurring during the time I had it running. The only other pair of RAM sticks I have are confirmed faulty, so not an option to swap.

I've replaced the motherboard 3 times over this computer's lifetime (which is about 5 years now) and this is the second CPU. The PSU was also replaced at one point, from a generic model to an OCZ. I have no reason to believe that there is not enough power supplied to the computer, as it's a 650W model with a single graphics card.

Below is my system collection:

P.S. Consider using environment variables to extrapolate the location of the desktop rather than hard-coding C:/Users/[user]/Desktop, as I have it stored on another drive and was annoying to find.

I did a Regcure Pro scan and fix most of the errors as well as trying the driver verifier run to detect the failure. can somebody help me decode this problem?

A:bsod after running driver verifier.

Ok had a look at your files and a few things come to mind, first there are no crash dumps so I can not definitely pin down the problem only give my best suggestions fix this please follow this tutorial:

Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Now onto the things of note:

Please uninstall Daemon tools it is known to cause BSODs, once it is uninstalled download and run this tool:

DuplexSecure - Downloads

whjen the tool runs if the uninstall button is grayed out just close the window, if it is not click it and let the tool run. DO NOT click the install button it will install a driver known to cause BSODs.

Next please uninstall Tuneup Utilities, these programs are very unnecessary and can do more harm than good, they know less about your computer than you do and if your using it to "clean" your registry its probably doing harm.

Please uninstall the Asus utilities on your computer they are nothing but bloatware

First off, thank you so much for having this kind of information and help out there, I'm hoping to learn more about Windows and at some point begin to diagnose and troubleshoot my own problems. Second, I have been having BSOD's more frequently in the past 3 to 4 weeks and it got to the point that I completely wiped my drive (a Crucial 128GB RealSSD C300) and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Pro. Now after the wipe, I am not experiencing BSOD's quite as frequent however whenever my computer is in sleep for a few hours, I'll come back to wake it up only to have it report is was shutdown improperly. After digging around and reading a bit I decided I would run the driver verifier to see if anything would come up. It has been a day since I started it but I finally had a BSOD during an update to a program (the EA Origin service). Any insight into this problem is greatly appreciated!

A:[SOLVED] Driver Verifier BSOD

Hi -

The lone dump was VERIFIER_ENABLED, but did not name a 3rd party driver. This means the likely cause is hardware failure.

Did you have BSODs before the Crucial 128GB RealSSD C300 was installed?

Among the attached DMP files, we seem to be stuck on two consistent bug checks:


This indicates that a kernel-mode program generated an exception which the error handler did not catch.

The latest DMP file is still of the *1e bugcheck is and is failing to detect a device driver within violation.


Probably caused by : hardware

Due to verifier failing to detect a device driver and having a *3d faulting hardware, this is more than likely a hardware issue.

How new is this computer? If it's BRAND new, such as several days to only a week, contact the manufacturer and let them know you are getting hardware related BSOD's and would like a replacement ASAP.

Hi all,

Can someone give me a quick explanation on how to use Verifier.exe for Windows 2000? I play games on, and lately I have been experiencing a BSOD (stop-error) that says "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". Not that I have any clue what that means, but I assume it's a driver problem.

I loaded the Windows 2000 driver verifier, C:\Winnt\System32\verifier.exe, and set it to verify all drivers. I set the checkboxes for all options, because I want a comprehensive test. I then rebooted as it instructed me to.

The problem is, when the computer restarts, I can tell that driver verifier is working, because the system slows to a crawl. What I don't know is what to expect. Should I just let the system churn for a few hours, and then will I get a report? Or what is supposed to happen?

Thanks for the help.

I downloaded Win7 x86 drivers for our Ricoh Aficio MP 171 from Ricoh, to load them onto a machine freshly updated from XP to Win 7. Every time i try to install them, Windows tells me the default driver it chose is the best one and won't install it. The driver it is using does squat, the printer was working fine when it was connected to XP, now the most we have gotten out of it is a few pages of jibberish when we tried to print a photo.

I have tried manually installing the driver from the device manager, i tell it to use a folder on the desktop where i copied the driver, but when i press next it immediately says the driver being used is up to date. I tried telling it to read from a dvd i burned the driver folder on to, it doesn't like that either.

I am toying with the idea of deleting the default driver from system32 (but copying it first to a data key), disconnecting from the 'net, and then installing the one from Ricoh.

Got a new tablet pc. Put in a new hard drive and installed vista ultimate x64. Works great. I was suprised how much smoother it runs.

So now here I am with 64 bit vista installed again. I downloaded a couple drivers that it could be from lenovo website. It still didn't work.

Before I started this whole project I went to the microsoft upgrade site to check compatability. While running XP, the site said that I would have to download the wireless lan driver and install it after i installed vista. It also said the fingerprint reader would need to be manually installed but I don't care about that.

Any suggestions?

New to this forum, and this is my first thread. Please provide me with some help if possible.

So my problem is the following: Kept getting BSODs from some driver inflicting with ntkernel according to whocrashed and bluescreenview. Anyways, disabled my network card as I thought that was faulty, updated all my drivers and checked my ram with memtest just to be sure. Was still getting the BSODs.

Decided to use driver verifier to see which driver that caused this. Bad idea. Turns out that one of the drivers indeed was faulty, but now I'm getting blue screen before I can even log in to windows. Tried to boot into safe mode a thousand times by repeatedly pressing F8 and shift+F8 to no avail. Thought that I then could turn of driver verifier from the command prompt, but No! (Since if I could turn this of the BSOD before system start would then stop since the purpose of windows driver verifier is to force the faulty drivers to create BSOD).

Then downloaded EaseUS Recovery Essentials to see if that could help. Turns out that my ENCRYPTED (bitlocker) drive on which my operating system is on, can't be found because I'm assuming that the change in boot order previously when running memtest disabled it.

Hello all.

In the past, I would get occasional computer freezes, requiring a hard reboot. These almost always came during gaming sessions. My temps were great, power input stable, drivers up-to-date and the crashes themselves would occur sporadically with no obvious pattern (ranging from minutes to days apart). These freezes would leave no event log or minidump, so I eventually decided to load up Driver Verifier. Using DV, I could easily force BSOD using something like FurMark, Firefox, DxDiag tests, etc, all leading to the same error revealed in the minidump:

nv4_mini.sys [<--Nvidia MINI VDD]
bugcheck str: 0xc4_13

Needless to say, I've gone through ~10 versions of Nvidia drivers (properly using Driver Sweeper) and utilized (I think) every combination of DV settings available. When not using a "catalyst" program (Game, FurMark, Firefox, DxDiag tests, etc) I will not receive a BSOD, but can otherwise trigger one quite readily when DV is enabled.

I was having BSOD crash episodes several time a day. I followed the advice to setup Driver Verifier to discover what the issue was.  That is where the problems got worse
Now every every boot fails because of a DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION.
I tried to reconfigure driver verifier so that it would not check anything... the error still happens at boot. I cot to cmd and tried verifier /bootmode resetonbootfail and also verifier /reset.  No Joy.
Through the Windows 10 BSOD menus I am able to get into the Safe Mode, but that's about it.
I'm attaching the latest dump file.
Any suggestions?

Yes Driver Verifier has found the driver(s) responsible.

Hello, while working one evening I got my first BSOD on this machine, so I enabled driver verifier and have been getting an 0x0000000a on start up infrequently.

I'm assuming this is going to have something to do with the drivers for my mobo, as I ended up grabbing a lot of Intel Smart connect and crap. I've been updating/uninstalling unnecessary drivers, but I'm no good at analyzing dumps, so could anyone help point me in the right direction here?

I've been having troubles for nearly a month now. I've tried replacing RAM and checking RAM slots, checking my HDD with several programs including Windows programs, checking drivers in various ways, and "upgrading" my OS from disk as a Hail Mary.
The OS upgrade was the only thing to seemingly make any change, as it noticed immediately upon startup that the .NET Framework was damaged. Repairing it did not solve this issue.
I've used Driver Verifier to determine the issue, and it crashes at the login screen. When I restart into safe mode with networking, BlueEventViewer determines that it is ntoskrnl.exe and tcpipreg.sys. From previous forum searches on multiple different forums, I have concluded that ntoskrnl.exe is merely taking the blame, but I am unsure on tcpipreg.sys.
Attached are a perfmon zip and a sysnative zip. If anything else is needed, please let me know.
Edit: I'd like to add that if I remove the power cord to the laptop, I lose input. The mouse will still move, but refuses to click, and keyboard input fails entirely. This is only solved with a hard shutdown/restart as far as I can tell. This is a very recent issue and I cannot tie it to any software or hardware changes.

I recently used Driver Verifier as I was experiencing constant hard hangs. I followed all the steps on this pageUsing Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers and got the BSoD I guess I was looking for:

So after that I rebooted and only got the option to either Launch Startup Repair or try to Start Windows Normally. Trying to Start Windows Normally would just result in the BSoD above so I tried doing Startup Repair but it would not detect my Windows installation. Because of that I can't restore my system to the point before I ran the verifier.

A:Can't boot back up properly after using Driver Verifier

Did you try clicking Load Drivers? Does it detect the system then?

Can you boot into safe mode?

It looks as though Diver Verifier may have trashed your install, or at very least, your MBR. You might be looking at the very real possibility that your install is unrecoverable. I hope not.

Good evening all.

Since a couple of days I'm getting BSOD's once a day with the notice that my Driver Verifier has detected a violation. These particular BSOD's occured in pretty much every activity so far, from playing a game to watching a video or just browsing through some forums. I've also noticed that my notebooks fans get louder since the BSOD appeared, but I can't imagine that there's too much dust inside because I've just bought this notebook a few weeks ago and haven't used it that much.

If you need any more information just ask and it would be much appreciated, if you could help me out with this issues. Many thanks in advance and here's my file:

Attachment 54713

EDIT: I've installed Speedfan and MSI Afterburner lately, but Speedfan only to see the temps and MSI AB only to record games, nothing else. I'm mentioning this just in case these programs could cause troubles.

EDIT2: I've just re-installed Speedfan, and just as I wanted to open it because my fans were louder than usual once again the BSOD I mentioned above appeared again. Could it be that Speedfan was causing those issues? I've uninstalled it and now my notebook is suddenly not as noisy anymore either, but I'll check if it remains like this for a longer period.

Update: My notebook is louder than usual again, but I haven't experienced another BSOD yet. Will keep you updated.

Update #2: No BSOD's today, seems like it was Speedfan causing the troubles. Still, could one of you guys check my file to see if there is/was anything else possibly causing problems?

So yeah, I was having some BSOD problems and enabled the driver verifier( for all drivers, no less) without really knowing what I was getting into. Needless to say, I now BSOD and immediately restart long before getting into Windows, and I'm not given the opportunity to even enter safe mode.

It's saying "The IO Manager has detected a violation by the driver being verified" etc., though it's not naming a driver file.

At any rate, I'm just interested in getting back into Windows, so at the moment I'm simply looking to disable it.

I have a startup disk which I have used to enter the recovery console where I in turn went into command prompt. Using verifier.exe, I was able to bring the application up again. However, that one doesn't actually seem to be active; I assume this is because running it in the recovery console checks the recovery console registry/whatever instead of that of the windows installation on the boot drive.

I think I'm at the point where I'll need to manually edit the registry to deactivate the driver verifier, which I'm not entirely sure how to do given the circumstances. I haven't tried using regedit yet, but I suspect that would just default to the recovery program's registry anyway. Besides, I don't know which key it is. So now that I have a command prompt, what do I do next?

A:Accidentaly(kinda) enabled driver verifier

Did you set a restore point first?

If so use the recovery disk and restore the point set just before enabling Verifier, if not see if there is an older one set.

I am haunted by BSOD for some months now (approx 1-2 per week). They mostly occur during some RAM intensive things (videos, skype, image processing, antivirus check). I am pretty sure it is memory and/or driver related. I unsucessfully tried various things to fix it yet:

- Changed Ram, run memtest86 for 10h+. Everything ok.
- Checked Ram Voltage. No change.
- Reinstalled Windows7. No change, they quickly returned.
- Changed Antivirus Software. Checked for Malware. Ok
- Updated several Drivers, including graphic card driver

Before I start, every blue screen I get is a irql_not_equal_or_less and I have run memtest on my ram cards with no issues. Also I am using 64bit Windows 7.

For a while now I have been having some problems with blue screens on my computer when I am turning it off or into sleep and sometimes during startup. Well I mostly fixed it by updating multiple drivers on my computer like my intel graphics driver. After that it really only blue screened when I tried to put it into sleep mode. Yet recently I tried re-downloading league-of-legends and every time it would blue screen near the end of the download.

Thus to fix this I searched on the windows help forum and found the Driver Verifier software on windows and used it following the instructions. Well now I am unable to get back into windows (using the dual-booted Linux OS) because it bluescreens right after I put in my login password. Then I try safe mode and my computer just turns off not booting up in safe mode either.

Basically my question is how to get my computer to boot windows up. Since I know it is very much needed, is there a way I can open or post the MiniDump files from Linux?
