Bsod While Using Renoise?

I hear people having BSOD’s when using Renoise (or other applications) running in Windows XP lately more often that in the past.

A lot problems seem SP2 related and in most cases drivers are the cause.
Yet a lot of other (illogical) situations may be the root of the problem.

Tip one:
Write down the stop code, it’s parameters and if possible also the name of the essential driver mentioned upon that page.

With the stopcode and generally the first two parameters, you can figure out how to narrow your search by looking into the correct corner.
This info usually is provided on the Microsoft site, however, Google may turn out to be a better friend in some other cases.

The essential idea behind this topic is to filter out real Renoise problems from Sp2 or other driver related problems.
And if you had a specific problem that arose during (frequent or a constant moment with) use of Renoise and found the solution in a very unlogical corner, share it here.

I’ll start off with a specific laptop problem using Intel Centrino CPU’s:

8672 » Your Windows XP SP2 portable computer blue screens with STOP 0x000000D1?  
When you switch your Windows XP SP2 to and from battery power, you receive a BSOD similar to:  
STOP 0x000000D1 (0x0000000C, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF8E26A89)  
gv3.sys – Address F8E26A89 base at F8E26000, Datestamp 3dd991eb  
NOTE: This problem may occur during other activities.  
If you force installed the Gv3.sys Intel Pentium M (Centrino) mobile processor driver, which works on Windows XP and Windows XP SP1, you will experience this problem.  
NOTE: An OEM driver installation program may have forced the install.  
The Gv3.sys processor driver is obsolete for Windows XP SP2, and has been replaced by Intelppm.sys.  
To determine which processor driver is installed:  
1. Start / run / devmgmt.msc / OK.  
2. Expand Processors.  
3. Right-click Intel Pentium M processor and press Properties.  
4. Select the Driver tab.  
5. Press Driver Details.  
If you are using the Gv3.sys driver:  
1. Start / run / devmgmt.msc / OK.  
2. Expand Processors.  
3. Right-click Intel Pentium M processor and press Update Driver.  
4. If the Driver Update Wizard prompts you to connect to Windows Update, press No, not at this time.  
5. Press Next.  
6. Select Install the software automatically (Recommended) and press Next.  
7. Press Finish.  
8. Shutdown and restart your computer.
