BSOD using windowed games, occurs after hours.

Q: BSOD using windowed games, occurs after hours.

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
8E - KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000008e)
A - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
50 - PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (50)

I did a 5 hour memtest and got no errors (5 "passes"). Was this long enough to test the memory? I don't think I've ever gotten this without actually being playing a game in window mode (although a few times the BF2 editor crashed, but I think that's more because of the way it's coded).

Thank you in advance.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

Hello All,

Some background: I treated myself to a new computer, which I built from components, and which runs wonderfully, save for seemingly random blue-screens-of-death, which occur once every few days/several hours.

I've performed a memtest86+ on my ram sticks, and after 2 full passes (took about three hours) I found no errors. I've checked the hard discs for errors. I've completely re-installed my operating system, and then installed one driver at a time, using the latest versions I could find, or defaulting to what Microsoft windows update could find, in hopes of maximizing compatibility. I called both my graphics card and power supply manufacturer - both have assured me that my power-supply is adequate to power my system, and especially, to power my graphics card. I called Microsoft, who said they would try to fix it (no guarantees), it would cost $99, and they would only support the fix for 90 days...not a very appealing solution.

I've begun to delve into using tools to analyze the BSOD reports, but nothing really sticks out to my eye, and frankly, I've quite new at it, so I doubt I really know what to look for.

I'd really like to figure out what's causing the issue, and stabilize my system.
Here are the specs:
Operating System: Windows 7 Professional x64
Freshly installed (twice!) on SSD drive
This was the original OS installed on the hardware
System components have been assembled for about 2 weeks
OS freshly re-installed on 15 August 2012

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.

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,

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?

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.

The memory dumps blame athuw8x.sys - a driver component of your wireless.
Driver for Qualcomm Atheros UB91/UB93/UB94 USB Wireless LAN Network Adapter






I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win8/8.1 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 and later - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win8/8.1 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.



Update the drivers to the latest, Win8.1 compatible version to see if that helps with the BSOD's (your drivers date from Oct 2012).

Please uninstall Corsair Link. It's driver dates from 2008 and has been known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers.

Hello,

A few days ago I installed Windows Updates and installed a game called "Ace Online". After a couple hours of playing, my computer suddenly blue screened. I thought it might be a one time deal, but it has occurred about 3 times per day since then while playing the game. I did a system restore to the day before I updated, re-installed the game with automatic updates off thinking it might be a flawed update, but then it crashed again a few hours later. This game seems to run smoothly on my laptop, but my desktop is definitely better for gaming. Upon the computers restart, it says that it has recovered from a serious error. I get this message

Hey guys, I like to play Age of Empires II/III and Empire Earth II

However, I don't like playing in fullscreen. Is there anyway to force them as windowed mode? (I am aware that AOE 3 has that option built in unlike the others)

Many Thanks.

A:Force Games into Windowed Mode

If you right click on one of the icons, like on your Desktop, go to Properties. There will be a "Target:" text box that should have the directory map of the actual install location... after the end of the default text, press Space twice and type "-w." This may not work for all games due to different "Argument Recognition" inputs from different Publishers. Diablo, Diablo 2, Warcraft - Warcraft 3, and Star Craft all become "Windowed" if you use the "-w" argument.

Try it, it may work.

Hello,

I've got a question. How can I make my games run in a window? (For some reason, I prefer to play games in "windowed mode".) In XP you had to add something like "-w" on the shortcut thingy... But it doesn't work on Vista. I know how to do the "Windowed GUI" -thingy, but I think it quite doesn't help me. I even tried it, but the games still run in fullscreen.

I have managed to make a few games run in a window, but that is because there was an option for it in the game options. Unfortunately for me, not all games have that kind of options. Or maybe I'm just blind, and I don't find that kind of things from the game options. *shrug*

So, does anyone know any sort of solution for this? Thanks in advance. =)

(I hope that you guys understood what I meant - I'm not that good in english. ^_^')
I'm going to sleep now (it's nearly 01:00 AM here), so it might take a while for me to answer here.

Edit: Well, I guess this whole problem is now pretty much solved. Thanks for helping me out! d(^^d)

I have managed to make a few games run in a window, but that is because there was an option for it in the game options. Unfortunately for me, not all games have that kind of options. Or maybe I'm just blind, and I don't find that kind of things from the game options. *shrug*

So, does anyone know any sort of solution for this? Thanks in advance. =)

(I hope that you guys understood what I meant - I'm not that good in english. ^_^')
I'm going to sleep now (it's nearly 01:00 AM here), so it might take a while for me to answer here.



press alt and enter while in game, this turns the screen into windowed mode. works with crysis and assassins creed. not tried it with any other games.

There?s this one problem in Windows 8 that I cannot get hold of, nor can I find a registry hack that can fix the same. When you launch a game or an application from the Start Screen, it opens up just fine and full screen to the edges, like I've shown below:

Once I got tired of playing the game and thought of switching to check my mail just for a second, I pressed Alt + Tab and got out of there. When I come back into the game, it is forever windowed and cannot be turned full screen unless the game is restarted, like shown below:

And this doesn't happen just for games like Need For Speed, but it also happened to me for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.2:

See the title bar and the menu bar in the above image, that never came up for me when I was running Windows 7 Ultimate, it really sets the mood off when you?re editing photographs. The old clean, black-only and classic look has been diminished by Windows 8′s compulsory windowed mode rule.

Hi, I'm having an issue with most of my games. For some unknown reason the programs will flash white and say that they are not responding, this only seems to happen if I use my mouse and click on the actual window. Considering most of the games this happens with require the mouse to use, this can get really irritating.

Another problem, which I'm sure this is related to the flashing windows, is when I click out of a game. It doesn't show up, it will still be in the taskbar but I will be unable to play it.

This problem doesn't work with any other programs (i.e. Google Chrome, Steam).

If anyone has a solution for this, that would be brilliant!

Thanks in advance!

Well they still point to L1E62x64.sys which is your ethernet driver.
What did you do to try and 'fix" it?

You need to completely remove the current one before installing the new one. Dont use "driver sweeper" type utilities to remove or install this driver. Go to the MFR site and find the newest driver, download and install it.

Let us know if that doesnt cure this

The problem I'm having is almost any game I play will work perfectly, solid 60fps, no hitching or stuttering, just buttery gameplay, and then in a blink of an eye it will start to hitch terribly and drop frames constantly. This usually occurs after a few hours.

I have reset my BIOS, formatted Win 8.1 and Win 10, ran every benchmark known to man without have a single crash or error (even scoring higher than 80% of people with my setup), tried the last two Nvidia drivers, tested my PSU with a voltage checker, removed overclocks, checked temps which are fine (under 60c for both GPU/CPU) and way more. I have spent countless hours trying to fix this issue over the past week and I'm completely defeated at this point.

Here is my HWInfo while hitching like crazy in Dying Light:

For some time now i've had a problem where after playing games for an extended period of time with no issue, they will freeze and lock up my PC requiring a reboot.

The game will freeze, sometimes loop the last sound playing and then cut to a solid screen of colour that seems to be mostly random what colour it is.

Some information on my setup:
- Core 2 Duo E6300 (overclocked from 1.8Ghz to 2.8Ghz with 1.4vcore)
- 4GB DDR2 800Mhz at 4-4-4-12
- ATI 4890 (1GB vram and stock settings with latest drivers)
- Asus P5B Deluxe (ver.1233 Bios)
- 700W OCZ StealthxStream PSU
- Windows 7 32-bit ultimate

1) I've ruled out overheating, at least in any detetable way. When gaming all temps report back green across the board.
2) I've stress tested with Prime95 showing no errors.
3) It appears that the more graphically demmanding the game is, the faster it freezes up. I can run something like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat (high settings) or the Bad Company 2 Beta (med settings) on high for several hours, but Bioshock 2 (high settings) has frozen up within 5 minutes of play.

I'm really stumped by this problem, it shows every indication of being a graphics overheat or if not that then an insufficient PSU, but temps report fine and the PSU is rated for running an SLI setup without problems so a single high-end card shouldn't have it breaking a sweat.

Any help would be much appreciated, I am open to any suggestions on how to pin this problem down. Thanks in advance.

--UPDATE--

I'm going to explore some other options in the meantime:
- Until now my motherboard voltages have been set to "Auto". This setting shortchanging on voltage could lead to instability but its difficult to believe that after years of using these settings without problems that something could be caused by it now.
- Run Memtest (though seems kind of useless after passing Prime95)
- Check for failing hard drives. This has caused issues in my system before and was fixed with replacement. Unfortunately high HDD wear is a continuing problem for a heavy user such as myself

Initially had the same processor with a different motherboard (gigabyte 890gx) and was having frequent BSOD problems. After many days of diagnosing, could not figure out the problem. So I returned the cpu and mobo and bought a new cpu and a mobo in hopes that this would cure the problem. But nope.

Strangely, when I had two hard drives running (connected to motherboard) it caused frequent BSOD so when I unplugged one of them I got less frequent BSOD. Later, one of the hard drives died (both are samsung spinpoints F3 HD502HJ, now I have only one connected).

I have 8 gigs of ram (2gbx4) and have tested them separately and came clean. But I think I'm going to do run the memtest again to be sure. But mind you running 4 gigs at a time still caused BSOD before.

So I think it's a toss up between my ram sticks or the hard drive. What do you think? Anyway I want to give thanks to all of you in advance for any help =)

My computer recently started to crash very frequently(almost always when I'm playing a game on the computer, perhaps this is related to memory usage?). I'm pretty sure it isn't a virus or something like that. I frequently run a program called RegistryBooster, I use AdAware, and Spybot Search and Destroy. This seemed to have started recently after my family switched our internet to Comcast, then Computer2 lost connection to the internet, our family friend came over to fix it, and we re-setup static ip(to port forward and allow certain programs access) and I believe that's about when the crashes started occurring.

It says on the BSOD near the top: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
And near the bottom under technical information it says:
***STOP: 0x0000000A (0x00000016, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804F67E5)

Note, in 0x804F67E5, the 0 after 0x8 might've been an O.

Also, after rebooting my computer after each of these crashes, I get the
"Microsoft Windows

In which, the Error Signature says:

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. There was no problem few months ago, but nearly 4 or 5 months ago I started to take BSODs. I'm using this PC as a home theater, like a bluray, dvd player. So I didn't downloaded any harmful or erring program or software (I believe so..) except media players and codecs. I also changed its RAM with my daily use PC's, but it ended up with BSOD again. I also tried to restore system to another day (to June - 6 moths earlier and I'm sure in June it was working fine) I believe it's driver error because it does not occur in safe mode. Ah and I need to add this: nothing happens if you won't enter your account, no crash, no BSOD.
 
There are two types of error indicated in BSOD; Stop: 0x1E and APC_INDEX_MISMATCH Stop: 0x1. I don't know what trigger which one, but I don't get both of them in safe mode(also in safe mode with network)
 
I had no sound in safe mode, so I thought it might be sound card driver problem and disabled it. After disabling and rebooting PC normally, I got BAD_POOL_CALLER Stop 0xc2 instead. I think it is not the graphic card's driver because it is on-board.
 
I don't know what to do right now. I have no clue, nothing left in my hand

Now if I let the pc restart itself, it will bsod again and again and again, BUT, if I force a shut down, then turn it back on, it will go to Windows normally and work for a week if necessary, so I have no idea what's going on, I replaced probably every single driver, tried updating Windows, tried not updating it (currently I have updates turned off), I tried booting with only one stick of ram, then I switched the sticks and tried again.

Hi Grabacr.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If it does not show any error, 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.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.
