computer blue screens after wake up from sleep mode

Recently after waking up my computer from sleep mode it blue screened. It never did this before. It wasn't doing anything special. The night before I was installing games from steam, and watching twitch streams. I remember after the games finished downloading completely from steam I remember getting sleepy myself and left the web browser on the twitch stream and went to bed. When I woke up my self I pressed the keyboard to wake the computer up from sleep mode...that's when it blue screened. I then restarted it manually to get back into windows. When it comes to blue screens i am pretty clueless as what to do. I saw the dump file after i restarted was created and I thought I would post it here. Maybe someone can help me out? Also I looked up how to run Windbg and here are the results. Also here is some background information of my system:
Windows 7 64bit, intel i5, gskill ripjaws 8gb of ram (2x4gb), nvidia gtx 970, z97x-sli motherboard, 1tb wd blue. dump file as follows. please help me out guys i dont know what to do.

  1. Best answer
    It looks like it's probably a driver that isn't handling memory addresses very well and either needs to be updated or removed. Without seeing your setup, I can't really take a guess as to what it is.
    There's a few ways to approach this sort of problem.

    Probably the easiest is to try a program called whocrashed which will sort through the mess that is a crash dump for you, and tell you what is the likely culprit driver. It's not 100% reliable but it gives some things to try and may very well isolate the driver for you.

    If you don't want to try that program or if it doesn't give you a productive answer, there is an alternative, manual method.

    Note: If you're not really sure what you're doing, follow these instructions carefully! If I specify something, it's not arbitrary. It matters. Follow these instructions at your own risk, if you aren't certain on this stuff it's a good idea to look up a guide on how to do it as well.

    You can open msconfig by typing in the start menu, type msconfig , or windows key + r will open a run menu and type msconfig there and hit enter. Click the startup tab and disable all startup items, and click on services and click "Hide all microsoft services", then click disable all. From here you have a mostly clean booting machine, so apply changes and restart. Now try to get your machine to go to sleep and wake it up, see if the crash is still happening. Now hopefully, the machine crashes every time you wake it from sleep, because at least that is easy to troubleshoot(Compared to "It sometimes bluescreens!" kind of intermitent issues) so if you don't crash after the msconfig changes, restart, then sleep/wake test then it probably means something you disabled was causing it, which means it's a short jump from here to fixing the problem.

    Assuming the machine doesn't crash after the wake test, go back into msconfig. I'll assume you know nothing about startup items or the programs you have installed to simplify this, if I'm wrong then you probably have an idea how to narrow it down yourself. Select half of all items in the services list, make sure to select them all in one big group, either the top half of the list or the lower half. Apply changes and restart. Check if computer crashes when waking up. If it does, then the problem lies with one of the services you've just enabled, so go deselect half of the ones you just turned on and restart again, wake test again. If the bluescreen is gone, then you deactivated the service causing it, so go back to msconfig and turn off the remaining ones, and turn on the ones you disabled before the last test. One of them is the problem, so split them in half and keep drilling down until you have only one service left that when left on, gives BSOD, and when turned off, sleep/wake works normally.

    If you turned on half of the services and didn't get bsod, turn on the other half and try again. If there's still no bsod, then the problem will lie in the Startup list, so go do the same process for those, turning on groups at a time and testing to see if the bsod returns, and when it does drill down until you have only the one that turning it on or off toggles the crash. Note that you want to test services first, since you should have all services enabled before you go and start turing on items in the startup list. So if services have all been ruled out as the problem, then turn them all on before continuing to startup items.

    You can of course do this in any way you want, I'm just proposing a way to narrow it down faster than turning items on one at a time and testing. There's a name for this kind of simple search but it is long forgotten to me :(

    You can of course leave off all startup stuff as well if you don't want to bother, but some programs might stop working if you disable their dependancies.

    Hopefully this helps you narrow down the culprit, then all that's left is to identify the program that deals with the driver and update said program, or uninstall it. That should resolve the crashes.

    Edit: Forgot to mention, that if disabling all of this stuff doesn't fix the problem, then it may be a system driver that is causing the problem, which is a little more difficult to troubleshoot. That or I may be wrong and maybe it's not a driver at all, that's just what it looks like to me, maybe someone else has some insight.
  2. okay i will try. ill let you know how it turns out
  3. I ran that driver verifier and it crashed it a few more times. something or some driver was causing ntoskrnl.exe to crash. ehhh i just couldnt narrow it down and was getting frustrated. well i decided that I would just reformat my entire drive. it fixed it. and no more blue screens. I figure if i start out fresh it would be better. I thought it might be the ram at first and did the memtest86 and it ran it with zero errors on all tests for a couple hours. I did re seat the ram, graphics card, and hard drive just to be sure. All of that seems to have fixed it. though i know better next time to make a back up of all my movies on usb drive... :( ahh o well. hehe. thanks for help kada.
  4. Sorry it didn't work out the best, a format is always so much work getting everything back to the way you want it. Keep in mind, also, that if you have access to another computer, it is trivial to pull data off of a hardrive if you plug it in as a secondary disk on the other computer. Can't recover programs but data files are easy to recover.
