Administrative Event errors and warnings right off the bat..

    Question

  • Hello everyone, I'm new to these forums, but I've been searching around for a solution to this problem for quite some time now.

    I do apologise if this has already been raised, and if a fix exists, then I'd very much appreciate a link to such a fix.. but never the less, I'll detail the problem I'm having.


    so, I recently purchased Windows 7 after having used Windows Vista for quite some time. It's only been recently on the machine I'm using now that I've been experiencing some problems. Namely, those problems have been memory, hard drive and graphics card related issues. At first I thought it may have been because I was using an upgrade version of Vista installed over my XP Home Edition SP2.. but since yesterday, the problems have returned to plague me yet again even in 7.

    Since I reinstalled 7 from a 64bit version down to a 32 bit, I've noticed a total of 6 warnings, ranging from Search to Kernal Event Tracing, and 5 errors ranging from User Profile Service to something called "atikmdag"

    I've even noticed errors such as corrupt file format systems in the past, which is quite unsettling as this machine is less than 12 weeks old.. but I'm rambling.

    My system specs are as follows:

    Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6400+ 3.20Ghz
    Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-DS4H Motherboard
    ATi Radeon HD4890 1024mb Graphics Card - With latest drivers (9.10)
    Samsung EcoGreen F2 1tb Sata II 32mb Cache Hard drive
    Corsair Dominator 2GB 1066Mhz RAM Modules x2
    Corsair HX850W Modular Powersupply

    Now.. I'm guessing I should maybe copy and paste some of those confusing event logs in here to help you guys out, so I'll copy and paste one from the Kernal-Event Tracing log and the other from the display related log as to reduce the size of this post.

    Kernal-Event Tracing:

      </EventData>
      </Event>

    Now, with regards to the last one, it comes with two different messages which are "Display is not active" which relates to the above data, and "CPLIB :: General - Invalid Parameter"

    Now, I'm at a complete loss as to what to do here, so any information which can point me in the right direction would be incredibly useful and greatly appreciated.

    I should also note that I've used two different types of memory in this computer so far. Both the current 2gb 1066mhz Corsair Dominator's X2 as well as Corsair 512mb 800mhz X4 and both have reported BSOD's which related to Memory Management

    Is there something I'm doing wrong perhaps?

    Any replies would be greatly appreciated

  • Hi Badgers,

    Let's focus problem one by one.

    Regarding the Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-EventTracing error, could you please go to %windir%\pather, rename setup.etl to setup.old?

    Then, please try to restart the computer to see if it works.

    Hope it helps.

  • in regard to the "atikmdag" error, installing the latest ATI Windows 7 drivers took care of that problem for me.
