    ATTEMPTED TO SWITCH FROM DPC affected by ntoskrnl.exe


    Hello there, i'm new around here, I've recently encountered a BSOD out of the blue while the PC was idling. So far it only happened once, but I don't want to take any chances.

    The affected driver was commonly known as the ntoskrnl.exe, it happened a year back but the affected was associated with some other drivers that I known, so solving it wasn't that hard. But this time it doesn't associate with any other driver ( I may have been wrong ). Anyway, this issue occur right after I've updated the AMD Catalyst Driver, which may be root cause of this issue, but I just gotta make sure.

    I've attached my recent dumpfile below, if I've made any mistake on posting, or miss out any information required for debugging, please let me know.

    Many thanks

    Cause is RAMDiskVE.sys, for more we need additional data.

    RAMDISK eh? I used that to run my caches to reduce the loads of my SSD, though I'm not sure why RAMDISK is the cause of the BSOD. Anyway, here's the additional information requested.

    Yeah... RAMDISK gave me a handful of headaches in the past few years, though it's useful as hell. I've noticed that corruption error in the event viewer and was hoping that was not the issue that causes BSOD, guess it has to go.

    Anyway, I've uninstalled the RAMDISK and will diagnose my HDD if I'm able. For now, I'll mark this thread as solved.
    Thanks for your help.
