Computer crashed with IRQL_GT_ZERO_AT_SYSTEM_SERVICE

KyleDick asked on

While I was editing a video in VideoPad Video Editor, my computer crashed with the error: IRQL_GT_ZERO_AT_SYSTEM_SERVICE

I don't know if it was because I was editing videos from the SD card or what. The memory dump files that Windows created are below.

The attached DMP file is of the IRQL_GT_ZERO_AT_SYSTEM_SERVICE (4a) bug check.

This indicates that a thread is returning to user mode from a system call when its IRQL is still above PASSIVE_LEVEL.

^^ Right, so what's occurring here is audiodg.exe from a Wdf01000.sys routine is returning to user-mode when the IRQL is still above 0.

0x4A's with audiodg.exe faults are generally pretty well known to be cause when a specific driver is present on the system, and it indeed is on yours:
