BSOD when running WGA RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am getting a blue screen (http://user.web.com.na/michael/images/IMAGE_010.jpg) when trying to run the Windows Genuine Advantage Validation. (around 2 seconds after pressing the validate button. no popups or anything else happens before the blue screen) I am also getting this blue screen when trying to run the WGA Diagnostic tool.


    After a reboot i get the following in Problem Report:


    Follow these steps to solve the problem with a video device driver

    You received this message because a device driver installed on your computer caused the Windows operating system to stop unexpectedly. This type of error is referred to as a "stop error." A stop error requires you to restart your computer.

    Error Message: STOP 0x000000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER (Q293078)


    I have updated my Nvidia 7600GT cards graphics driver as well as disabled all visual settings, and I have decreased my resolution, but I still get the blue screen.


    I have only had this blue screen when trying to run the WGA. No other software gave me this problem.


    I can also find this information under the "Problem Reports and Solution" tool:

  • Would you please run the MGA diag tool found here:

  • As I said in the post, i also get the BSOD when running that tool. So unfortunately I can't. I could manually try to get the info, if you could tell me what is needed.

  • True enough.  Are you running the Silicon Image driver for their SATA Raid Controller by any chance?

  • Yes I am! I have the Dawicontrol DC4300 which uses the Silicon Image SiI3124-2 chip.


    I don't hope that there is no solution if that device is the problem.

  • After reading your message about the Silicon Image RAID being the problem, I searched this forum and found that post. Unfortunatelly I am running 32bit Windows not 64bit so I can not install that driver.


    I searched the silicon Image website for drivers for my 3124 RAID controller, installed them, updated the BIOS and I am still getting the bluescreen.


    So, at least now I know what I have to search for. I hope they release a new driver soon.

    Thank you for the help.
