Q: BSOD - Typically occurs when running applications e.g. games/antivirus

EDIT: I had a fresh BSOD while trying to upload the perfmon log. I have included the dump for that separately. The reason was something along the lines of 'attempt to write over non writable portion'

Hello all,

I have been experiencing a variety of issues with my computer ever since re-installing Windows 7 Professional as a student upgrade edition (no pre-installed sp1 - had to install a ton of updates).

I have had various issues occur, many of which have been fixed only to lead to new problems arising.

I have various suspicions about the sauces but I would like you guys to take a moment to look over the problem and suggest any solutions.

Attached is the mini-dump from the last day or two, which contains several BSOD logs.

The computer also has problems booting, which often means that the computer needs to be repaired using the System Repair or Restore tool.

I have been having problems for almost 6 months now.

Thanks in advance,

Mike

Edit: Added the perfmon report

Preferred Solution: BSOD - Typically occurs when running applications e.g. games/antivirus

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Oh, and just to add, the perfmon log says I have no AV installed but I have AVG 2012 installed and up to date

I started getting BSOD's related to NT Kernel on my desktop only after I downloaded Overwatch, but noticed its been crashing on other BIizzard games and really nothing else. I have attached the Perfmon and Sysnative reports. I just got this computer as a hand-me-down so I'm not very familiar with update status and overall computer health.
 
My computer's specs:

A:BSOD When running multiple applications (Games/Web-Browser etc)

Late for work once again :0)I'll post more this evening or in the early AM tomorrow (UTC - 5, east coast of the US) Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen both dtsoftbus01.sys and dtscsibus.sys blamed on several occasions).Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration):  New link (15 Aug 2012):  http://www.duplexsecure.com/downloads (pick the appropriate version for your system and select "Un-install" when you run it).Alternate link:  http://www.disc-tools.com/download/sptdManual procedure here:  http://daemonpro-help.com/en/problems_and_solutions/registry_and_sptd_problems.htmlNOTE:  The uninstaller may not find the SPTD.sys driver.  Don't worry about it, just let us know in your post.NOTE2:  The latest version has an SPTD2.sys driver - the uninstaller is on the same page as the SPTD.sys driver - just download the version for W10!If that doesn't stop the BSOD's, then start with these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.htmlThe dump files hint at hardware/compatibility/low-level driver issues.

So this is the story guys.3 or 4 months ago i build a desktop system and one month ago my motherboard broke down.I bought another one that is compatible with my cpu but as i see i cant install some games,because i get data1.cab/media1.cab is corrupt/ some files from installation are corrupt.
Got these errors trying to install NFS The Run,Dirt 3 by now, but World Of Tanks and Hearthsone successfully installed.
Also sometimes i get blue screens with erros: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT or MEMORY_MANAGEMENT.I had Windows 8.1 and i thought if i reinstall the windows the problem may disappear but no...Now i have Windows 7 x64 and still cant install games.
I thought my hdd is faulty so i ran a chkdsk and i got no errors.No errors detected with hd tune pro either.
Last night i ran memtest and after some time i got pass complete no errors detected so i shut it down.
Now if you could help me that would be great because i dont know what is wrong.With old motherboard i never got a blue screen though.

A:Can't install some games,Sometimes BSOD occurs

Hello Poli sorry you have had to wait so long now when you say you ran memtest how many "passes" did you let it run for because you have to run at least 8 passes to get any confirmation of errors or not .

MEMTEST

The memtest you will need to make a bootable disk / stick andset the BIOS to boot from the optical (disk) or USB and it will take a fairtime to run- some leave it overnight..
Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
But one thing is very important you must let the test run for at least 8 passes anyless and the findings are no good. Now if errors come up straight away then youcan stop it - see my pics (Keep in mind these are example only as they are shots of older versions but you will get my drift). Now if there are errors and you have more than onestick of RAM in then you will need to test each stick ie remove the sticks andreplace stick 1 in slot 1 and test no errors do the same in slot 2 withstick 1 no errors then repeat the process with stick 2 - that will show up thefaulty stick - the other thing is it could be a faulty slot but most unusual.

It is a very lengthy and tedious process but worth it if youhave errors.

Hey guys,

I'm unsure if this is the correct place to post this, if not, it would be much appreciated if you could point me to the appropriate place.

So i've had this build for a few months now. It is my first build. Here are the specs:
Intel Core i5-4690K
Zotac GTX 970
8GB Ram
Asus Z-97-A mobo
Windows 8.1

When i'm playing big games such as BF4 or GTA V, it likes to crash midway through the game constantly. I can play BF4 for a while before it crashes back to the desktop and i cannot play GTA for more than 10 minutes before it does the same. Sometimes these games even causes a BSODr. As well as, Crysis 3 just completely crashes and freezes my computer after a very short time of playing,

Also sometimes when i'm rendering a video in Sony Vegas Pro 13, i get a BSOD too.

I think it may be to do with my graphics card but i just can't quite put my finger on it. My GPU drivers are all updated.

Any ideas?

I got a 2600, 2gb of ram, Gigabyte GA-7n400-L mobo, 9800 Pro, and a few HDD's, and this has been annoying me lately, mainly because I've been using a few games in window mode, including Battlefield 2 (not often, usually only to test something), it's map editor, and the games Football Manager 2006 and Galactic Civilisations 2 (both of which have options to use window mode).

I had previously belive it was caused after playing battlefield 2, but the last one (tonight, and the final straw to get help) I had'nt played BF2 at all. It happens after hours of playing (I'd say tonights after the memtest was about 4 hours after startup), and I can't "replicate it" beyond playing and eventually it happens. I always have Firefox, Windows Media Player, MSN, Xfire on, and sometimes Azereus as well as playing.

I did'nt have memory dumps on the right way until I saw the site, so I only have the 4 most recent.

I get a variety of stop messages (the line that tells you what type of error it was), including:
7F - UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP_M (1000007f) - Latest

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.

Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight, per RAM module per slot.

Hi all,

I've been experiencing very frequent BSODs with different bug check codes and causes every time. When a BSOD happens, there is this buzzing sound and it will say something like 'initializing crash dump....' but nothing else will happen. I have to manually restart my laptop again. On a couple of occasions, my laptop will even just hang at whatever I'm doing with no BSOD, again causing a manual restart.

Attached is the SF diagnostic tools zip file.

Some points I'd like to bring out:
1. I can't really remember, but I had an automatic windows update on or before 28 Dec 2012. On that day I also experienced a BSOD.

2. I then was on vacation and the next time I started up my laptop was 10 Jan 2013. Ran OK for a couple of days, then on 14 Jan 2013 the BSODs started.

3. I was experiencing frequent Google Chrome crashes of the "Aw snap" variety from 14 Jan 2013 onwards.

4. I've updated the NVIDIA graphics driver the proper way (uninstall, safe mode driver cleaner, reinstall) but it didn't solve the problem. I've also updated the Intel Graphics Driver.

5. sfc/scannow and MS security essentials did not turn anything up.

Please help me to troubleshoot this. Appreciate any and all advice and suggestions. Thank you.

Welcome to the forum.

Make sure your dump logging is enabled.
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click System.
Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
Check Write an even to the system log, and Automatically restart.
In the Write debugging information list, click Small memory dump (256k).

Location of Dumps:
C:\Windows\minidump

Uninstall Bit Defender and use MSE in its place.

Microsoft Security Essentials is recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other internet security software. Malwarebytes is a great combo to MSE. They are free and lightweight.

Also uninstall your existing Antivirus software before you install MSE.

Good and Free system security combination.

I was still able to play Call of Duty Black Ops without crashes, but after some of the latest crashes (after running Unigine heaven bench), even that seems to cause a crash.

I have been getting multiple BSOD. Computer seems to work fine. I usually leave it on and it goes to sleep. Randomly when I come back sometimes it has gone to BSOD. It is now happening every day to every other day. I've tried updating most of the drivers. The only time I have triggered a BSOD is when I try to update the audio driver (Realtek HD Audio). I've tried everything I can think of - scanning for malware / virus. Updating all the drivers. I ran a memory test as well which was OK and can't seem to figure out the cause. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The error that it gives is IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal. I've attached the dump file and other info as requested. Thank you.

Hi all,

Over the last few weeks I've been seeing BSODs, and I figured it's time to do something about it. Today it's happened twice, with the first error being an "APC_INDEX_MISMATCH," which got stuck on initializing a .dmp file. This was after playing some Civ5, as in quit, left the r oom, came back to a BSOD (while playing I forgot to turn on vsync, temps ~70C- higher than I like but well within a safe range). A few hours later, after playing some more Civ (nothing too intense, temps never above 55C this time, etc), I got the BSOD that's attached here. For some reason it never made a full dump file, just a minidump. There should be plenty of harddrive / pagefile space, so that isn't an issue.

Attached is most of the hardware/pc info that you'll need.

Some other notes. A few months ago I upgraded to a 780Ti, before which I didn't really see these blue screens. I can't say that's the culprit, but hopefully you can all help. I clean reinstalled graphics drivers last week, so that shouldn't be an issue either. I'm suspecting memory as well, so I'll probably run windows mem diagnostic tonight.

Anyway.. I'll check the thread in the morning, so let me know if there's any additional info I can provide. Thanks for any help you can provide.

So I ran a quick windows memory diagnostic, which didn't turn up with anything. I'm not sure if I should run a longer memtest86 or not..

Although it appears that you have updated Windows, your secdrv.sys driver dates from 2006 (it dates from 2012 on my Win8 system). Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates.

smihlp.sys dates from Mon May 30 12:21:37 2011 - it's likely a part of the UPEK Protector Suite
Please update it to the latest, Win8 compatible version.

Out of 4 memory dumps there were 3 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers)
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

Evening,
I have had no problems with this PC until recently. The first time it happened today it stated a 0x000007A error and every other time has been a 0x00000F4 error.
August 8th was the first time it started getting BSOD, which happens to be the last time a dump file was made.
I have set it to write a small memory dump file when it crashes, but I have had 3 crashes since doing that and no files have been written.
I have performed the "SFC /scannow" command and no errors came up.
For some reason the DM Log collector program didn't make a zip file, so I converted it to a .rar file which is attached.
If you need any event viewer history (which I've looked through and couldn't find anything related to the power failure) let me know.

Not sure what it is, although I am willing to guess it's got something to do with some drivers or perhaps motion-joy (360 controller emulation software)

The first and 3rd crash are very similar.
The only thing I can think of that I did similar that made it crash was, when I went to plug in a Wireless Adapter(s).
The first time i swapped them out, taking my awus036h out and putting my Linksys AE3000 in it cause it to crash.
Also putting my Awus036h in caused it to crash not to long ago.

I used a driver updating software that came along with Advance System Care and in the middle of it i cancelled because I was tired of waiting, so I think it has something to do with that since as soon as I pushed cancel it miraculously said DONE

I think i attached the zip file correctly, please tell me if I have not.

Hi there!

So I've been getting this BSOD problem for a few months now and it actually hasn't hassled me too much in the past since I'm a good "saver" and it typically was a good reminder for me to get up and take a break every now and then. The problem recently has gotten much worse, however.

It typically happens when I'm running a program called "FL Studio", a program for music production. The BSOD usually occurs when switching songs or when recording from my external soundcard/interface, the Digidesign MBOX 2... I've since uninstalled the program until I can fix this issue

Now I know there's a whole slew of combatting drivers playing a role in this problem. Or maybe I don't know the gist of it at all--that's where I'm hoping you folks can lend a hand.

? OS - Windows 7
? x86 (32-bit
? Originally had Vista installed.. did a clean install of Windows 7 (not upgrade)
? Purchased from a retailer
? Hardware is roughly 2 years old
? Windows 7 was installed over the summer (July of 2010)

I have been getting BSOD when on my home wireless network. I never blue screen in the office (in a dock, wired).

My IT group has migrated my profile to 3 different computers, including one computer that was built from scratch rather than using our existing image. This suggests to me that it is not a hardware issue (i.e. RAM).

The problem often occurs when I am using the SonicWall Global VPN client and/or Chrome. Sometimes both, sometimes only one. That said, I can't reliably reproduce the problem.

My internet connection is Comcast Xfinity.

I have done my best to provide the requested info. The attached zip will show 4 BSOD events from last night. The reason there are not more is that I received a new computer yesterday in an effort to fix this problem.

Hi there. I've been having somewhat frequent BSODs with various error messages. This is occuring *after*, not during, gaming sessions. The info attached is from playing Civ5 for a few hours, quitting, leaving the room, and seeing the BSOD. The message was "APC_INDEX_MISMATCH." Just now I had another from playing Diablo 3, minimizing, and a couple minutes later crashing (no .dmp file, "dumping physical memory to disk" stuck at 95 for 30+ minutes). The error was "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL."

Another problem occured after this last one. After booting to desktop, the computer immediately crashed to a blue screen. I didn't get a chance to see this message; the computer shut down. It then attempted to power on a few seconds later, and then shut down. It continued to power cycle like this until I flipped the power in the back. Nothing shows on the monitor. It's done this before too, though it occured again after playing a game last time. I believe it showed "IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL."

Now on to some other notes:

I never crash *during* a game, just after.
The GPU (780Ti) is a few months new. I didn't really see BSODs before it, but it's taken a few months to get this frequent.

I've been fighting with this issue for what seems like forever at this point. I've been able to get by ignoring it or trying occasional tweaks, but after having it crash multiple times during my conquest of northern Europe in CK2 as the Empire of Scandinavia, well... My patience is shot.

These BSOD's tend to arise from ntoskrnl.exe, with the usual BCC being 3b or 1e. They can happen while I'm just using the Internet, they can happen when I'm playing CK2... Really any time my computer decides it's time to shit the bed. I've not been able to identify the underlying cause as it happens so randomly.

Here are the steps I've taken to try and resolve this:Downgrade driver from latest to 314.22 (read somewhere that it's more stable for my graphics card)
Update NIC and wireless adapter drivers (had earlier issues with the network .sys)
Run disc checks and Memtest, disc check found a few errors, Memtest was clean.
Run Malwarebytes and Spybot in regular and safe mode, completely clean
Upgraded my CPU cooler to the Coolermaster EVO 212 (this was mostly done because the stock was just crappy)
Reset BIOS values

I'm just completely stumped. Please let me know if I can provide any further information; I would really love to get a definite answer or to have someone more experienced look over the logs to see if they can spot any issues. Whoever resolves this for me, the next child born to my dynasty will be named after you in-game (and I will post a screenshot to prove ... Read more

Typically when I step away from my laptop, or leave it over night - I will awake to it having a BSOD and reboots to the Dell Alienware Recovery Program. I've updated all the drivers I can, and it still is giving me this issue. Luckily it rarely happens while I'm actively using the laptop.

There should have been a file called Genuine.txt created from DM_Log_collector. It's not in the zip file you uploaded.

Hi there,

I have tried to fix this problem myself. Problem started several days ago and I cannot remember installing any new programs that would have caused this (possibly an automatic windows update?).

I've tried scanning the disk for errors, cleaning registry, virus/spyware scanning and updating a few major drivers with no luck.

I've used blue screen view and the driver wdf01000.sys keeps on popping up but after a bit of reading I don't think that is the root of the problem.

I have a sneaking suspision that it may be a security program called Folder Lock, however I have had this program installed for several months with out problems.

I have attached the .dmp file from my last crash (they all seem fairly similar). Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers
Josh

Hey, I'm not sure what's happening. I built a gaming rig and it's been playing Steam games just fine, but when I play non-steam games it crashes. I used a blue screen viewer and uploaded a screenshot of it so my friend could see it, but he couldn't figure it out. I'll put it here to see if anyone can help me with it.

A:BSOD when running some games, not when running other games

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. If empty (or non existent) please look in the following folders. C:\windows (the dmp should be called memory.dmp), and C:\windows\LiveKernelReports\Watchdog.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump... Read more

Hi there. I've been having somewhat frequent BSODs with various error messages. This is occuring *after*, not during, gaming sessions. The info attached is from playing Civ5 for a few hours, quitting, leaving the room, and seeing the BSOD. The message was "APC_INDEX_MISMATCH." Just now I had another from playing Diablo 3, minimizing, and a couple minutes later crashing (no .dmp file, "dumping physical memory to disk" stuck at 95 for 30+ minutes). The error was "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL."

Another problem occured after this last one. After booting to desktop, the computer immediately crashed to a blue screen. I didn't get a chance to see this message; the computer shut down. It then attempted to power on a few seconds later, and then shut down. It continued to power cycle like this until I flipped the power in the back. Nothing shows on the monitor. It's done this before too, though it occured again after playing a game last time. I believe it showed "IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL."

Now on to some other notes:I never crash *during* a game, just after.
The GPU (780Ti) is a few months new. I didn't really see BSODs before it, but it's taken a few months to get this frequent.
The PSU is a Corsair 850W. Not a cheap one and plenty of power for the new card.
I uninstalled/reinstalled graphics drivers. Maybe I didn't properly fully uninstall them? (I didn't use a third party program to uninstall)
Temps are fine. CPU and GPU are no... Read more

Hi,

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)

This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.

This bug check is issued if paged memory (or invalid memory) is accessed when the IRQL is too high. The error that generates this bug check usually occurs after the installation of a faulty device driver, system service, or BIOS.

I have been getting a BSOD sometimes. Sometimes the computer goes blank. Sometimes the screen just freezes and makes a loud noise as if it was an issue with the graphics card. Pretty much all of these occurences have happened with about a half hour of starting up my computer. I have been able to let it run afterward and play games through the night if I can power through these first hiccups. I have updated everything I can but nothing helps. I have quit shutting down my computer completely and just putting it to sleep, but the BSOD finally hit me today after trying that trick. My BSODs have been extremely inconsistent and after maybe about 7-10 of them, not one has said the same thing. Most the time they haven't been able to make a dmp file, but I have 3 of them that I was able to grab.

I hope I posted to this forum correctly as I am fairly new at this and been able to fix all problems on my own in the past. Thanks for any help that anyone can give me.

I have a problem with my computer BSOD'ing at totally random times on a range of games I play but not all games, for example Java games like minecraft etc will not cause BSOD and other certain games like any Steam Source engine games I can run perfectly such as GMOD, L4D1/2 CSS etc. It does make me wonder if it is Directx games as the most common to die on me are games like World of Warcraft (if that is run on Directx I assume), Company of Hero's (99% of the time within the first 10 minutes) and Sim City 4.

I have ran checkdisk and rfc scannow (or whatever it is called) but I still need to run memtest when I get my dvd drive to boot it from the iso. I have updated directx, updated all my drivers and even going as far as removing every driver to replace again.
(also note I know my graphics driver is outdated but I had to as it was causing graphic errors in games. But have been getting BSOD on the current old driver and the new version.)

This happened only 2 times on 32 bit that I had originally installed but increased in 64 bit windows if that makes any difference but I am not sure if it made any correlation except that I have ran 64 bit longer than 32 bit.

- x64 Windows Home Premium 64x
- This is my own build.
- Full Retail Version
- Less than 1 year old
- The clean install is around 8-6 months old? (guess)

A:BSOD While running various games

24 of 38 were caused by a memory exception (and I suspect more). While probably caused by a driver you do need to run both memtest and driver verifier. If you cant get it to boot from a cd you can rum memtest from a USB stick
These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (Cx05) probably a driver.
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have a Raid update its Driver.

Memtest.





Quote:
*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5-7 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.



RAM - Test with Memtest86+


Driver Verifier






Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition.
Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is.
But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver.
Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows.
If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to off... Read more

for the last 4 days or so i have been getting random blue screens. it was before i had updated anything except for windows updates. originally i had windows XP but due not not being able to make it past the boot screen at all, not even in safe mode i wiped the drive and went with a fresh install of vista 32 bit. in vista Ive at least consistently been able to make it to the desktop on every boot and not crash until i start running any form of games. i have vista updated with every driver and service pack that is available and ran many ram tests over the 4 sticks that i have. 10 passes on each stick as well as running memtest 86+ overnight. all returning with no errors. i have tried replacing the video card thinking it was the RAM on the card that fried, but alas no luck there either. nothing in this system is overclocked or has ever been overclocked. currently have AVG installed as well. im currently at the end of my rope attempting to get this system running for the last 4-5 days.

A:BSOD upon running games

17 memory dumps over 3 days (03 to 05 Jun 2010)
7 different STOP errors with 7 different causes blamed.
You've also reinstalled Windows - so this is (IMO) a hardware issue.

I'd suspect your video card, but you've already changed that out.

So, let's start with the standard diagnostics, but with some caveats to make sure we get the results that we need.

First, please run a hard drive diagnostic. NTFS.sys is present in a couple of the memory dumps - and it's a driver that affects the file system on your hard drive. Also, a failing hard drive can cause all sorts of strange symptoms on a system. So, please follow the instructions here: http://www.carrona.org/hddiag.html (read the details at the link)

Next, please run the Furmark video stress test. I'm not expecting anything from it - but would like to rule out the possibility of a problem with the video card slot on the motherboard causing issues. Here's the instructions and link:

Quote:




Try this free video stress test: http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/
FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
- Click "Quit" to exit




Next, please try Prime 95 - using the Small FFT's test (si... Read more

Doesn't matter which game, it does it for them all.
I'm always getting a different error, or it won't tell me what it is at all.
I don't know much about computers at all and I've been trying to figure out what's wrong with no luck. Maybe someone here can help me?
I ran the SF Diag Tool and compressed the folder, I'll attach that.
