BSOD with Kernel Mode Heap Corruption Error

I have been using PD for years without incident and been very impressed with its ease of use, functionality, and stability. I bought a new PC in 2021 and have made two movies on this system without incident. I began to add transition effects to my current video yesterday and experienced several blue screens of death with the “Kernel Mode Heap Corruption” error displayed. I have to admit, I haven’t seen a BSOD in a time-span measured in years. I was almost traumatized as memories of Windows 95 flashed through my mind.

I am a power user with dozens of apps and programs that I use regularly, including PD16. My system has plenty of resources and power. I'm running W10. As I inserted transitions into the timeline, every three or four times my system would (gasp!) crash with this error message. Obviously, something has changed. PD is set to check for updates, so I assume I'm current even though I couldn’t find a help option with the version listed. My drivers seem to all be up to date.

So, I need a fix and of course one that won’t affect my other programs on my system which all run perfectly. I will attach a DxDiag for more information. I see in my search of the CyberLink community that others have seen this error as well. The resolution appears to be system specific.

Let me know if I left out any details.

Thanks.

Hi,

6 out of the 8 WER are almost identical :

+++ WER8 +++:
Fault bucket 0x13a_11_NvLH_nvlddmkm!CMemoryAllocator::freeMemoryWithTag, type 0
Event Name: BlueScreen
Response: Not available
Cab Id: c8825f1f-b782-42f9-b731-b784afe8b632
Problem signature:
P1: 13a
P2: 11
P3: ffffe004bd002100
P4: ffffe004e69738b0
P5: 0
P6: 10_0_19045
P7: 0_0
P8: 768_1
P9:
P10:

The other 2 are Dell related.

A search around finds things like this:

You might start by looking at your NVIDIA drivers, or you might do a uninstall/reinstall of PDR16, but do check which version you are running and if you have the latest patch installed.

"Updates PowerDirector 16 to build 3424
Note: This patch is not for subscription version, OEM versions, UWP versions, volume license, or versions purchased via Steam.Adds support for enabling NVIDIA NVENC hardware acceleration with driver version 416 or above.** This update does not remove support for the NVIDIA NVENC hardware acceleration in the older VGA drivers."

Others may have alternative suggestions.

Thanks for the information.

What does it mean that “6 out of the 8 WER are almost identical”? I've never seen a BSOD on this machine. Can you translate this for me into layman’s terms? What does it mean that the BSOD is WER related? What addresses this problem? A video driver update may address the Dell issue as I understand it.

Also, where do I find the version of my PD16 software? There’s no “About” option that I can find. It is set to auto-update so I should be current. I bought a single copy when I installed it and have made 2 or 3 other movies without incident.

I tried to update the NVIDIA Studio driver from the GeForce Experience on my PC (I'm not a gamer), but the download part kept failing. Just the download. Failing! Again, feels like W95.

I downloaded what I thought was the right driver manually and it seems to be right but its name concerns me. (527.56-desktop-win10-win11-64bit-international-nsd-dch-whql.exe). Usually drivers say “English” or “USA” not international but that was the option (I specified US English) that I selected. Can I do damage if I install this? I generally have a “don’t fix it if it’s not broken” attitude with computers, and I can remember when drivers caused much heartache. I attached a screen shot.

It feels a little like we’re guessing here.

Hi,

WER=Windows Error Reporting
https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/eb285b0b-3214-4c45-9b64-f2d58b9bbcdd/dxdiag-windows-error-reporting-diagnostics?forum=win10itprohardware

So 6 of the 8 WER at the end of your DxDiag were very similar/almost identical and referred to .......nvlddmkm........
The links provided show that such an error might be due to the causes listed and some solutions are outlined.

PDR16 version - Click on PowerDirector at the top right under the full screen/close buttons.

Dell are always a bit picky about updating drivers. Ideally, let their auto detect system suggest drivers, but the attached snip gives the latest critical video driver for your system perhaps??




Personally. I would uninstall PDR16 (assuming you have the original installation files), then I would update your video, or other drivers suggested by Dell, then reinstall PDR and update to the most recent version/patch.

Cheers
