I've just recently gotten this error. I'll be on the internet. Usually browsing, on aim, sometimes downloading a torrent or so and then my machine will start to slowdown and boom.......I get a blue screen error talking about the NDIS.sys. Anyone familiar with this? The only thing I've done differently lately is download torrents but it does this without downloading one at that time. Please help! Looks like another XP format is in store...........I hate microsoft.
hey man, i'm getting the same blue screen for the same reasons - when i go online and download from limewire or torrents or even when i use msn messanger. It used to happen to me a long time ago but i had to format my hard drive and no problems till now -- Again The same blue screen with NDIS.sys file...
you posted this really long time back but if you have any help to offer or you solved the problem, please HELP!
When I've had it it has been primarily because of the driver that windows installs by default. You have to remove the driver for your nic and install the one of the manufacturers site, then it should work fine.
I had the same issue and it ended up being a bad onboard NIC. I just disabled it in the BIOS and chose 'last known good' to boot to and it worked. I then installed a NIC PCI card and got network connectivity back up.
same issue here. i get the same error when i run bitcomet: driver irql not less or equal, stop 0x000000d1, ndis.sys. it first appeared after i installed utorrent (but since there are a lot of stuff i also installed at the time, i am still not sure which one caused it). anyway i could not fix it, i reinstalled windows (vista), it worked fine for a while, then i installed bitcomet and crashed with the same error; after that, it started crashing every now and then even if bitcomet was not running - i think i remember installing ethernet driver in the meantime, though. eventually i uninstalled the ethernet driver altogether and then disabled it in bios (disabling alone didn't work).
it has been three days since that and no bsod until today (i even left my computer on for an entire night and it was just fine), when i ran bitcomet just to check and within the hour the blue screen was back. what do i do? by the way, it only happens with bitcomet (and if my suspicions are correct, also with utorrent), emule is harmless.
here are some specifications, just in case:
windows vista home premium; ram 2 gb; cpu: intel core 2 duo 1.6 ghz; graphics: mobile intel express chipset family; hdd 250 gb.
btw, my computer is a Dell laptop, inspiron 1420, bought with everything pre-installed on it. it s almost brand new, i don t think it is even one month "old" and i haven t changed anything, except for reinstalling vista twice (first, i forgot the admin password and second, because of the bsod).
Same error here...NDSIS.SYS
And this is hapen when i try to download with utorrent, large files...(Giga)
Some times i get some error about nvidia drivers,and are the latest from the webpage.....
I just install vista x64 and already found many errors...what`s hapening with this OS??
I must learn how to use and repair??
Now i navigate to found some solution for repair and optimise this....
I have Core Duo 2.33, Nvidia 8600gt 512, 2G ram...
I used Bitdefender Total Security 2009 for months but this never happened before. The BSOD error ocurred at night when I left the pc downloading large files from torrents. When I disabled the antivirus filter the BSOD didn't showed up no more.
Thank you, Rajiv Samra. You saved my HD from another format =D
@Raijv and/or @Marcelo- dude, i also have bitdefender TS 2009, and also experience BSOD on NDIS.sys, so i tried following your steps. im using POPPE type of connection
1. went to the LAN's properties
2. unchecked bitdefender firewall NDIS filter driver
did i do it right? if not, please help with detailed procedure.. thanks in advance!
Well, I use cable but yeah just disable you primary connection and uncheck the NDIS Bitdefender filter on it's properties, then enable it again. You should be fine now but just in case you should test if it's really alright (For me I just let the PC idle when downloading torrents)
@ trev villanueva I also have the same NDIS.sys error. Please tell me if disabling/enabling the BitDefender Filter in Properties resolved your problem? Or should I only disable the filter, without enabling it again?
I also have the same NDIS.sys error.
Please tell me if disabling/enabling the BitDefender Filter in LAN card - Properties resolved your problem? Or should I only disable the filter, without enabling it again?
It's solved now, I never saw that damned blue screen again.
@ Erik Caprico
To make things clear: you have to disable the CONNECTION(aka disconnect) and uncheck the BitDefender FILTER, then you can enable the CONNECTION back up again(aka connect).
To sum it up: don't enable the filter again.
Hope it works for u too!
Hey I recently had the same error, "blue screen of death" a couple of things that I can suggest if you have a router plugged in or anything where the modem goes through disconnect it, and may be that will do the trick. I had a similar problem when the traffic got high the the blue screen of death would appear. I then had unplugged the router and "voila" you may want to think about upgrading you drivers as well just to be on the safe side. well hope this helped.
goto ur network connections ...change the properties of the connection u use for connecting to net .. in the networking tab make sure u have only network monitor driver and tcp/ip checked.. if there are any bitdefender related protocols like qos packet shedder etc uninstall them ..
