BSOD mos24ser_QUADPORT.sys RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi  all,

    after a lot of googeling I didn't found anything about this BSOD causing one of our virtualized WIN7 machines hosted on VMWare to crash every 3-4 days. What I found is something like an USB-Controller is causing this BSOD but on the web there is no hint how to deal with it.

    OS: Win 7 Professional x64

    CPU: 4vCPU

    Memory: 6144MB

    VMware Tools installed (latest/current)

    Does someone ever had this problem with this BSOD else?

    Any hints or help will be really appreciated!

  • We do need the actual DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
    You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.
    If you are overclocking stop.  (chances are if you dont know if you are, you are not)a
    To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.  We need at least 2 DMP FILES to diagnose and confirm

    The procedure:

    * Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
    * Zip up the copy.
    * Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button. (if available on  your site, MS doesnt have this)
     *Please upload them to a file sharing service like Skydrive or"Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
    Link for how to  upload below.

    To ensure minidumps are enabled:

    * Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
    * Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
    * Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
    * Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
    * Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
    * OK your way out.
    * Reboot if changes have been made.

    Please also run MSinfo32 and upload the output as well.
    To run MSinfo32 please go to start>run>MSinfo32
    Go to "file" "save" and upload the saved file with the DMPS
    (Instructions for XP, Vista, Win 7, Win 8)
    System specs are often useful so include whatever you know

  • Hi,

    thanks, I have uploaded minidump files to skydrive as well as msinfo:



    Thanks for help,

  • Did you make any changes before the issue appears?
    The BSOD is related to \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\mos24ser_QUADPORT.sys. Please tell us the details of this file.
    Also, I suggest that you test your problem in Safe Mode with network and clean boot mode. Then check whether this problem occurs again.
    How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8

    Meanwhile, take following general steps to prevent an error like this from happening again:
    1. Download and install updates and device drivers for your computer from Windows Update.
    2. Scan your computer for computer viruses.

  • These were related to your Mos24ser_quadport.sys with description High-Speed USB MultiSerial Adapter Driver.  Your driver is almost two years old.  I would contact the developer to see if there is a patch or update.  In addition since most BSOD'S are a combination of things I would update to Service Pack-1 as that wold update the serial.sys driver that the USB device uses.

  • Hi,

    thanks for help. I will talk to the 3rd-party vendor which should be from our key card system provider Messerschmidt.

    Upgrading to SP-1 will be done additionally.
