  • Thanks Imperfect1,

    that was the same fix it download i tried from the older thread. after downloading and trying to run it, it'll say "this microsoft fix failed to process."

    it has a DIY solution, but i'm horrible w/ this stuff.  i'll use it as a last resort if nobody has other options.

  • What is your computer make and model? If not a branded computer what is your motherboard make and model?

    Please download and run Driver View and upload a copy of the report it produces to your Sky Drive.


    Type System Information in the Search Box above the start Button and press the ENTER key. Select File, Export and give the file a name noting where it is located. Please upload to your Sky Drive, share with everyone and post a link here. The request for a copy of this file is additional to answering the question about make and model. Failure to deal with both requests will delay finding a solution.

    Please say if you need help with using Sky Drive.

    Hope this helps, Gerry

    Update VAIO Care Update

    Update VAIO Gate software

    We need to find out more about this unknown device?

    Type Device Manager in the Search box above the Start button and press ENTER. Are there any yellow question marks in Device Manager? If yes what is the Device Error code.

    To see Hidden Devices (Non Plug and Play Drivers) you need to select View, Show Hidden Devices. It is necessary to do this every time you open Device Manager if you need to see them.

    A further complication can be Ghosted Devices –installed but not connected!http://www.lockergnome.com/windows/2005/04/29/display-hidden-devices-in-device-manager-xp/

    Error codes in Device Manager:

    In Device Manager right click on the device and select Properties, Details tab. You will see displayed Property and Value. To the right of Property is a scroll. From the list accessed using the scroll, select Device Description and this may give an understandable Device Name as the value. Use the scroll again and select Device Instance Path. The value shown will most likely mean nothing to you. Place the cursor on the value, right click and copy into a further message here.

    Please upload and share with everyone copies of your System and Application logs from your Event Viewer to your Sky Drive and post a link here.

    To access the System log select Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Event Viewer, from the list in the left side of the window select Windows Logs and System. Place the cursor on System, select Action from the Menu and Save All Events as and give the file a name. Do the same for the Applications log.

    Hope this helps, Gerry

  • Gerry,

    Thank you so much. I downloaded and installed all the updates. I hope it solves the issues.

    I didn't find any error codes in the Device Manager even after going through the steps to show ghosted devices.

    Screenshot of DM: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=BC3948392C2961F1!110

    Unknown Device* value: USB\VID_0000&PID_0000\6&39BF2D8A&0&2

    *On the list, there are two listings for this but the values are the same.

  • The System log looks much better

    In Device Manager right click on each Unknown Device and select Uninstall. Restart your computer and check in Device Manager whether the Unknown Devices have reappeared.

    Hope this helps, Gerry

  • Gerry,

    Glad to hear it looks better! I uninstalled both of the device managers, restarted, and they didn't reappear. I actually did this twice to make sure.

    I hope this helps. I'll update on whether or not I get another BSOD.

    Thank you again! You have no idea how much I appreciate your help!

    Please do.

    Thursday, February 21, 2013 11:43 PM
  • Update:

    Left laptop on for a while to see, if the BS would come back. unfortunately it did. However, it's a lot better. I used to get it about every 2 hours, now it took all day. It's also still giving me the same bug error codes.

    I re-checked the device manager and the unknown devices have not reappeared fortunately.

    Is there anything else I should check out or try doing?

  • How about the application log? Have had had any more blue screens?

    Hope this helps, Gerry

    Saturday, February 23, 2013 11:56 PM
  • I'm still getting blue screens. They're very random.

    I'm not sure where the application log is located. Is it in the event viewer?

  • Gerry,

    Was able to locate the application log: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=BC3948392C2961F1!115

    I thought your blue screening had stopped but there is one showing in the Application log after the period covered by the latest System log.

    Please upload fresh copies of the System and Application logs from Event Viewer and your System Information file to your Sky Drive as shared files.

    I notice that you seem to have connected your iPod to your computer shortly before the latest BSOD. Have you noticed any connection between connecting your iPod and BSODs or is this latest error just an unconnected event?

    Hope this helps, Gerry

  • Gerry,

    The blue screens stopped for a little bit after I installed all of the updates. I get them very randomly now.

    I haven't used my iPod on my laptop in about a year. So I haven't connected the two recently. I used to get pop ups that a device (or USB device. I don't remember exactly) couldn't be read, when nothing was connected. I haven't had these pop up in a long time, as well. Maybe that's what being read as the Ipod? I've only ever connected my laptop with an Ipod, phone, and a portable flash drive.

    It is over 24 hours since your computer had an unexpected restart. I think the problem may be resolved. Please let me know in 24 hours whether this happy state of affairs continues.

    Hope this helps, Gerry

    I'm still getting blue screens. The last one was just this afternoon.

    Instead of uploading a copy of the dumpfile you have unfortunately uploaded a shortcut.

    Your Sky Drive is now cluttered with too many redundant files. I would remove the lot and replace with fresh copies of the latest dumpfile, a System Information file and the two Event Viewer files.

    Hope this helps, Gerry

    Monday, February 25, 2013 10:41 AM
  • Gerry,

    Sorry about that. Cleared everything out and saved fresh copies in one zip folder. I attached the minidump files for the 4 seperate BSODs I had yesterday.

  • Hey Gerry,

    Thank you so much for your help and providing the links. I'm pretty sure I've already updated those the last time you sent the other updates. I updated whatever I could find for my model. I'll update anyway - maybe I missed some. I'll update on whether or not the BSOD comes back.

    I do not think I have suggested updating them previously

    Hope this helps, Gerry

    Monday, February 25, 2013 11:17 PM
  • Gerry,

    No, last Thursday you recommended other updates. After that, I went throughout the Sony support site and downloaded any other updates I could find for the model of my laptop. I did download all the updates you listed today, in case I missed any. Unfortunately, I did have one more BSOD today.

    New minidump file: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=BC3948392C2961F1!122

    It actually happened when I was typing this reply. lol


    I did notice after I downloaded the updates last Thursday, that my laptop started making a noise. Maybe it might be related? Whenever I tilt the screen or the screen moves it makes the same noise it makes when I get a pop up from Windows Explorer. It's not coming from the fan or anything. It's just a pop up noise. Could this be related? Before the updates, it never made this noise when the screen moved or tilted.

  • Gerry,

    Last night I actually disabled the USB controllers in the Device Manager and I haven't had any more problems nor the noise I mentioned in my last post.

    I've since enabled all of them except for the two listings for "Generic USB Hub" and I still haven't had any BSODs or trouble. Is there any way to get these fixed or anything? When I run the Update Driver Software everything comes back fine. Any ideas?
