AMD OverDrive is a CPU manufacturer’s software utility that helps users overclock and control fans.
It is a convenient utility for ADM CPU users because it allows you to get the most performance from your hardware.
However, any conflict with AMD OverDrive software can cause aoddriver2.sys on Windows PCs to fail. The error is not limited to a single version of the operating system.
From Windows 7 to 10 many users reported the error aoddriver2.sys which led to Blue Screen of Death.
The aoddriver2.sys error is a Windows driver that allows the computer to communicate with the connected hardware or devices.
Find and repair corrupted system files on Windows OS.
We recommend that you use the System File Checker tool to scan your system files and repair missing or corrupted system files. The sfc/scannow (System File Check) command checks the integrity of all protected files in the operating system and replaces incorrect, corrupted, modified or corrupted versions with the possible correct versions. To run the system file checker, do the following:
- Type the command prompt in the search box of the taskbar, hold it down (or right-click), and choose Run as administrator > Yes.
- At the command prompt, type sfc /scannow (note the space between “sfc” and “/”).
- Scanning takes a few minutes.
- Restart your PC.
Updating drivers for Windows
An expired, incorrect or damaged pilot can also lead to BSOD accidents. You must therefore download and install the latest drivers for your computer’s hardware.
Run the chkdsk command.
You will need your original Windows 8 installation disk:
- Insert the installation CD.
- Restart your PC
- Press any button to boot from the disc.
- Click on Repair Computer.
- Choose Troubleshooting, then Advanced Options, then Command Prompt.
- Type this command:
chkdsk /f /r
- Press Enter
Start Windows in the last working configuration.
Windows can remember when it last ran without error and reactivate this version if necessary. To do this, turn off your PC and press F8 while restarting it. Look under the option “Last known good configuration”. Now start Windows with this version. If the blue screen error disappears, it is very likely that a system or driver update is the cause of the problem.
Check for hardware problems
Defective equipment is a serious problem and can lead to a BSOD error. You must test your equipment and make sure that there are no defective equipment on your computer. Also check your computer’s memory for errors and temperature to make sure it is not overheated.
