    BSODs trying to update graphics driver


    Hello all,

    I have just upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10 pro. Getting multiple different BSODs including bad pool caller, system thread exception not handled (RTKVHD64.sys), and some others. Dmp files attached. I took a look at the reliability history and saw seagate dashboard was causing a problem - updated that driver. Also saw MediaServer on the list, so I uninstalled TVersity. I'm trying to update my graphics card driver, but I am getting bsod in the middle of updating (first time was system thread exception, second time was bad pool caller). Thanks in advance!

    The latest dump indicates a problem with RTKVHD64.sys. This belongs to Realtek Audio Driver.
    The one you have installed is quite old:

    IntcAzAudAdd Service for Realtek 10/30/2012 4:51:36 AM C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\RTKVHD64.sys

    Please fill out your System Specs, that may help figure this out.

    There is a slightly newer driver on the gigabyte web site for Windows 7, try that one:

    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3 - GA-MA785GMT-UD2H (rev. 1.1)

    So I ran the update for the audio driver, it installed, and i restarted "to complete the installation." As windows was booting up, I got a BSOD (RTKVHD64.sys again). Restarted again, and Windows booted fine. Log attached.

    Driver date is unchanged so it didn't get updated: 10/30/2012 4:51:36 AM C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\RTKVHD64.sys

    Give this a try, see if it solves this problem: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version - Windows 10 Forums

    Thanks - downloaded, was in the middle of updating the driver via device manager and i got a BSOD - Bad Pool Caller. Logs attached. How do I get this thing updated without a BSOD?

    Try doing a Clean Boot. Then update the driver.

    Clean boot worked. Downloaded the 2016 drivers through microsoft, and for some reason when I tried to manually update through device manager, it said I am already running the latest version. So I got the executable 2015 drivers from the Realtek website and was able to update to version 6.0.1.7541 6/18/2015.

    When I went to msconfig to re-enable all services (with startup items still disabled) I restarted and got a BSOD - Driver Corrupt Expool (never had this BSOD before). Will try to narrow down which services are causing it. Logs attached.

    I just received a new BSOD on windows bootup after restarting, all services enabled all startup items enabled. Audio drivers updated. The error was related to atikmdag.sys, first time this has happened. Video card drivers are already updated. Logs attached.

    Please try the latest driver (2016) again. This time uninstall the Realtek driver first.

    The latest dump still indicates a problem with RTKVHD64.sys. It has been updated to Tue Oct 30 05:51:36.

    There is also a new WHQL Realtek driver that was just released: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version - Page 92 - Windows 10 Forums

    It has a setup.exe you use to install it. Try that instead of updating via Device Manager.
