My aging ASUS F3H laptop had crashed several times yesterday displaying the annoying Blue Screen Of Death (B.S.O.D.). The BSOD message reads:
A problem has occurred and Windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer. Problem has occurred with ialmdev5.dll. This could be caused by new software you have installed.
This could be an incompatibility issue among the DLLs. An error like this could be resolved by updating the chip set driver. The ialmdev5.dll file is packaged with the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator. I proceeded to the Intel Corporation website to download the latest driver using the Intel Driver Update Utility.
Once the Update Utility is finished checking your system for outdated drivers, a download page shall open with recommendation on what updates to download and install on your system. I downloaded the chip set driver update and installed it on my system. That’s it. My ASUS F3H has now an updated Intel Chip set and no more blue screen so far.
