What might be the cause of this blue screen of death?

By majestic84 ·
All I can tell from the information below is that csrss.exe is the culprit, but I know that csrss.exe is an essential component of Windows. Any resolution ideas for this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Output of WinDbg.exe:

Check your Drivers for the right ones

For a 64 Bit Version of Vista. It reads like you have the wrong driver or maybe a 32 Bit driver in use.

Thank You

Thanks OH Smeg, I shall review the drivers today and report back with my findings.

It is probably a driver issue and/or a firmware issue

In response to SMEG, Windows64 bit does not allow you to install 32 bit or unsigned drivers.

Is this constantly happening or was it a one time issue?

Need more info like were you doing update or installing any software when it crash or was this on a reboot or cold boot

Almost sounds like a hard disk error

Maybe run a surface scan on your HDD, and run a SMART test (Assuming your system boots)

Agree with Sinister

by Spitfire_Sysop In reply to What might be the cause o ...

That was my first thought. Make a backup of crucial data before running any scans because the scan could be the straw that breaks your camel's ability to read data ever again.

The scans also may show no problems and then the drive could die tomorrow.
