BSoD Server 2008R2


  • Hello,

    I have been getting a lot of blue screens on one of my servers, this is the first time I have used this process to ask for help, so I am not really sure what information that I need to provide.  I suppose that I will start with the Problem Signature and system information.

    I just started at with this current employer so I don’t really know the history of this server, but it has been in servers of the past 3 years at least and it just started blue screening.

    My first thought was bad drivers for newly introduced hardware. I have been told that there has not been any new hardware or software introduced recently and no system changes have been made, so I am not sure why it would just start blue screening?

    My next thought was bad RAM, so I ran Microsoft’s Windows Memory Diagnostic utility with the following results:

    - <Event xmlns="">

    - <System>

      <Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-MemoryDiagnostics-Results" Guid="{5F92BC59-248F-4111-86A9-E393E12C6139}" />







      <TimeCreated SystemTime="2013-07-24T12:43:27.726936600Z" />


      <Correlation />

      <Execution ProcessID="1980" ThreadID="1592" />



      <Security UserID="S-1-5-18" />


    - <UserData>

    - <Results xmlns:auto-ns2="" xmlns="">






    To be honest I am not sure what this result is telling me, does this mean that I have bad RAM?

    I have also downloaded BlueScreenView v1.52  from Nir Sofer to read my mini-dump file, which I am not sure that I trust, because it told me that the following were the cause of the problem. (Not sure how to attach a copy of the dump file?) but here are the results:

    File Name: ntoskrnl.exe

    Address In Stack: ntoskrnl.exe+f20c4    

    From Address:  fffff800`01a07000

    To Address: fffff800`01fed000

    Address In Stack: Rt64win7.sys+170f8

    From Address: fffff880`02ca5000

    To Address: fffff880`02cd7000

  • Hi,

    From the limited information from the dump file, looks like you can try to upgrade the Rt64win7.sys (a component of your Realtek networking drivers ) at first.

  • I did find updated driver:

    Had to go directly to the manufacture's web site, see above link.

    For being an known issue, you would think that widows driver update manager would have reported the drive as being out of date.

    Oh, well I guess that is what this forum is for :)

    Would have been nice if Windows caught this, but either way I am good now.

    Thanks Kevin!

  • that is a good idea, i will try to post this thread to our product team. however, since there are too many manufactures in the world, and actually not all manufactures want to send there drivers/updates to us for testing. 

    Yes, we can discuss the tech problem here. I would like to share some information about Windbg for your reference:

    i noticed that you have already installed the Windbg tool, the Help (F1) in the Windbg is helpful for determining the possible cause via bugcheck, and the !analyze command is a intellective analyzing mode.
