  • 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
    System specs are extremely useful so please include whatever you know.

    These two were Related to wpsdrvnt.sys Sygate Security Agent.  I would remove it and replace with MSE.  I would also remove Symantec.

    Symantec  is a frequent cause of BSOD's.  

    I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

    Unable to load image \??\C:\Windows\system32\drivers\wpsdrvnt.sys, Win32 error 0n2
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for wpsdrvnt.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for wpsdrvnt.sys
    BugCheck 1000007E, {c0000005, 0, 8dfbfa54, 8dfbf630}
    Probably caused by : wpsdrvnt.sys ( wpsdrvnt+37b2 )

  • Thanks. I uploaded two dump files. How about another one? Anything can be found in that one? about ntkrnlpa.exe?

    There are only two in your link and the newest is from July 3.  Did you remove Symantec?

    If you upload any more please put the link to them in the next post.

  • thanks. here is the dump files from another computer - https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=C876ECBD4CC842FF!1961&authkey=!AOaQHPrgshyXp6A . the two computers are purchased at the same time. Hardware and software are exactlysame. And they got same symptom - sundenly reboot itself.

    Now two machines are EXACTLY alike and this is no exception. Linda's crash was Related to wpsdrvnt.sys Sygate Security Agent.

    The other Symantec.  The fact that the two machines had different drivers means different machines.

    I would remove Symantec from both machines and use MSE in its place as indicated above.

  • thanks. very try your advice.

    Still very confusing. We loaded the same image to other computer models and there is no problem with these computers at all.

    No, I repeat, NO COMPUTERS are exactly alike.  The ram may be a different month, the cpu a slightly different model, the drivers are not identical.  You are comparing apples and oranges.

    Isnt your purpose here to stop them from crashing?
