Drivers >> Bug check and the cause ?

Hi

Perhaps someone in this NG can help me

I do have random BSOD on my PC. Its not happen very often, but i do happen.
The BSOD is thrown in (so far) 2 diffrent device drivers: NDIS.sys and
Portcls.sys (Network and sound )
The bug check code etc. is the same for the BSOD's

Bug check: KERNEL_MODE_EXCPETION_NOT_HANDLE (0x0000008e)
Cause: STATUS_ILLEGAL_INSTRUCTION (0xc000001d)

The fact, that the exception is thrown in two diffrent drives, doesn't that
smells a bit like bad memory ???

Or is there another explenation for it ??

Any idea how i can get deeper into the crashes ??

If you suspect bad memory, please run a RAM test:

http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp or
http://www.memtest.org

Enable the Windows error reporting (My computer > properties >Advanced >
error reporting). Microsoft collects statistics of bug checks. In case this
is a known symptom, the error reporting utility will tell you so.

This most likely is a problem in somebody else's software that you
won't be able to correct by yourself :-(
The question is, is it worth to get deeper, or reinstall Windows.

Drivers >> Bug check and the cause ? Unless you have a reason to suspect bad memory, I'd look for a ****
driver. Testing memory, as Pavel suggested can assuage your memory fears, so
that would be a good thing to do. Either one of those, and especially
KERNLE_MODE_, is suggestive of a driver improperly handling an IRP, or
stepping on memory and then trying to execute that memory.

Any new drivers, or known driver updates? If so turn on DriverVerifier for
those drivers, reboot and hold your breath. If you have WinDbg, fire it up
also, or at a minimum set the system up to take a full dump.
