BSOD impossible to fix by myself?

Q: BSOD impossible to fix by myself?

It's been almost a week, I've had BSOD came up randomly once throughout the day, then the second day, it happened multiple times. I tried calling Microsoft support for help by speaking to their agents and after following their troubleshooting process, my laptop became worse to the point where I couldn't even get past the login screen and my correct password was seen as an incorrect password. I tried system restore, rebooting in safe mode, and a factory reset and the problem persisted. I asked Microsoft Support what to do next and they said my only option was a clean installation of Windows which required another PC and USB Drive. Haven't been using my PC for days until now.

I then called MSI and they told me the same thing, otherwise I had to go get it sent to a technician or mail it to them to get it fixed. Two days ago, I then did the clean installation of Windows as suggested using the creation media tool, downloaded all of the necessary drivers for the model of my laptop and there was no BSOD error while I was getting my PC up to date. I tried rebooting to see if BSOD would come up again and it seemed fixed. Today (first time using my laptop since I did the clean installation and downloading and installing necessary drivers), I downloaded Discord successfully and then tried downloading Firefox through Internet Explorer (what I'm using right now) within several minutes after starting my laptop, and before I was able to download Firefox from their website, the BSOD came up. Right now, I didn't bother taking that risk again of downloading Firefox (while I still have Discord app running in the background currently), but I'm sure the BSOD will still come up again eventually. I tried calling Microsoft Support again, and they tried getting me to pay for some repair service which I refused.

My question is, is it still possible for me to repair it by myself with this website's help or am I forced to send it in for a professional to repair?

My specs:

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I do not have a disk drive but I do have f3 recovery (don't know if you need the disk of recovery) and I do have access to another pc.
I can only go to startup repair options (because startup repair could not find the problem) I have access to cmd but not system restore because I turned off system restore.

The Bluescreens i get are completely at Random, sometimes my computer crashes before i can even log on, other times it can run for a day without a crash.
but lately ive only been getting the before-log on crash.

Attatched are the two folders i could get before it crashed. it seems to not like when i try fixing my computer.

The newest stuff is in minidump.rar i think.
i couldnt click fast enough to get a brand new one.

My Computer's about a year or two old, its been not used for months because of the bluescreens.
Its A Acer Gateway DX4831
it has 1TB of HDD and 6GB of ram, it Runs on windows 7 home premium and i have done two clean reinstalls already.
if was running on something different at first, it was still windows 7, the bluescreens started happening ages ago so i cant really determine what could of started them.
but i do remember the fact that it started with one blue screen every once in awhile, then they started to build up.
Im not very educated in fixing computers, so if i am told to do something i might need instructions on how to do so.
it is a 64 bit
what else..Its never been anything other than a acer gateway, and its been under a week since the last clean reinstall.
ive tried numerous amounts of things. During the clean reinstall i would constantly get bluescreens
I will post updates if anything happens.

the only things i could get [i apologize]

Hi all

I have had this problem for a couple of months and it is driving me crazy . The problem has also evolved somewhat. It started with what seemed like power issues and so I bought a brand new 530W PSU. Since then I have done a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro SP1- twice. Updated the BIOS. Updated all the drivers I could find that were slightly old. I have swapped out the graphics card; swapped out the RAM (DDR3); swapped out the mobo for identical model. I have even bought a new SSD and installed W7ProSP1 on that. It now starts nice and fast - but still unstable. I get 3 types of failure:

1. BSODs. dumps show various errors - not all the same.
2. Lock-up / Freeze - have to power off/on (no logs/dumps).
3. Random resets where the system acts as though the reset button was pressed. (no logs/dumps).

I am at a complete loss. Seems that the only thing I haven't swapped out is the CPU.

I have followed the instructions for attachements - please note that the system froze twice and I had to power off/on and re-run the program. Worked third time around. I have attached relevant files. I have also attached a screenshot of various system stats to give a better idea of my setup.

I really hope that someone here specializes in the impossible. This has cost me a fortune in time and money - and hair I REALLY need some help here. I have done everything I know how to and I am still lost.

TIA guys.

A:How is this even impossible?

Sounds like you may have an OEM System Builder versions of Windows 8. It is intended to be installed by someone or a company building a new computer that is to be resold. That particular version includes a personal use license which allows anyone to buy an OEM System Builder copy of the software and install it on a (new or old) PC that is intended for personal use. It should have come with an installation key.

I have a folder in my external terabyte that appeared some time ago. I can not delete it with any software. I tried to delete with DOS and it says all the same. The problem is that it will not let me downgrade it to a write-able format. It seems to be locked in READ ONLY status. I have attempted to take ownership of the drive and the files, but I can not get rid of it. When I first noticed it, it was random letters. When I tried to delete the file it turned into many many "Z's". When I ran the DOS delete protocol it changed into 6 "Z's"; with in that folder is a empty folder called "Update". Since then I have not been able to do anything about it. I don't know what to do. I even downloaded a program called Delete on Boot, and still no success. I have been coming here for about a year when I caught the Rogue Internet Security 2010. It was since then, 12/30/09 the day that i reformatted to yield to the virus's victory that the file first appeared in the external hard drive. I am wits end and I know someone out there can help me. Please tell me what to do. I was told that it was very complex and destructive hack file. Am I infected again?

Hey guys it's me again with my annoying and those that seem to be impossible-to-fix-problems.

Well 3 months ago i bought an AMD 5600+ Dual Core and i had lots of problems since then, believing it was defective, i wrote to AMD support and requested an RMA. My replacement arrived today. It fixed LOTS of random crashes and my computer was able to boot up properly with both rams placed on in dual channel. I went to play on Soulstorm, it crashed, sometimes half way through a game or sometimes about 5 minutes into the game. I went on another game which is Company of Heroes, it crashed too.

The only reason i tested these 2 games was because they crashed most of the times when i had the defective processor.I thought it was the RAM but i thought it wouldn't make any sense because while waiting for my replacement to arrive, i put in my old AMD Athlon 3500+ and it worked fine with EVERY SINGLE games so it couldn't be the RAM and it can't be the replacement either. Not knowing what else to do, i took one stick of ram out, and guess what? It worked like a charm ! I really have no idea what's going on inside but if anyone had been through this or anyone who knows how to fix please help and....ermm if it works you'll be able to rest assured that a person on earth is grateful and just wants to kill you with hugs XD

Hello boys and girls. About one year ago, my 500GB Western Digital MyBook hard drive died when I unplugged it from my motherboard. It lived a long life. It was time for it to die. I figured maybe a power surge killed it since I didn't "Safely remove the hardware". The computer it died on was built by myself. It was an Asus motherboard and a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit OS. I was convinced that my data was lost, so I bought a 500GB Toshiba Canvio portable USB drive in the color black. I plugged it into a rear USB 2.0 port. It was recognized for about three seconds, and then Windows displayed a yellow popup from the bottom right corner of the taskbar saying "The device has malfunctioned". A new hard drive? Come on. I brought it downstairs to my dads Vista machine, and it worked just fine. I scratched my head, and for kicks, I tried my "dead" MyBook on the same machine. It worked! I could see all my data!

After this, I figured it was a bad motherboard. Since none of the ports on the computer were working with it. (Mind you, mice, flashdrives, printers, keyboards, hubs, etc. were all functioning fine on the system). It was ONLY mass storage USB devices that were not working. I waited about a year and built a new computer. New EVERYTHING. Windows 7 OS, Asus motherboard, and all that good stuff. I was so excited to finally be able to use my USB hard drive again. I missed my data. But... It didn't work. It makes the usb "Bee-boop" but will no... Read more

Hey Hey - Happy Holidays all!!

Got a machine running XP Home SP1 and it started having strange IE problems, like not displaying backgrounds on some sites [they were mostly php Nuke sites]; then it started crashing all the time when going to Windows Update site. Then started crashing all the time unpredictably and couldn't find a pattern.

No virus [Norton clean], no spyware or adware [Webroot SpySweeper clean]
Tried reinstalling XP but to no avail
Tried to install SP2 in hopes that it would over write problems, BUT it WILL NOT install - - goes for a while and then just stops - - no messages, nothing, just stops install - attempted it 4 times and got a partial install is all; had to uninstall that.

Any ideas? Please!!

Thanks all and have happy, healthy holidays

A:IE impossible to solve? What else can I try?

I don't have XP so I have no first hand knowledge of it. However, you will find links to articles about failed SP2 installs in this list;http://www.scotsnewsletter.com/best_of/xpsp2links.htm

As for your original IE problem, I wonder if you can still try to 'repair' IE like you could in the older OS's?. To do it, you went to Add/Remove, selected IE to uninstall, and then were given the option to repair it.

Assuming that is still possible in XP, I am not saying it will help your problem because I just don't know.

I have an HP dv2000 laptop. I am trying to get the built-in webcam to record properly and I can't figure it out.

When I use the HP software for the camera that came with the computer, 10 seconds of recording is over 100 megabytes...and the quality is amazingly terrible.

I've tried for 1 year to figure out why the camera is like this, and I've had no luck. I've looked at all options, settings, etc, and there are none to change this.

Why is the HP cam like this? I've had the computer for a year and I am not even able to put a simple video on youtube!

Does anyone know why HP built-in webcams record 10 seconds using 100 megabytes?

Hello guys,
I have a very frustrating problem and i really can't imagine any way to solve it without help. The problem is quite simple to explain : I simply can't downlaod anything "big".
let's check details. I have two browsers, Ie and Firefox. I ve been using firefox for years but i recently bought a new comp, and Ie came along with vista.
Whenever i try to download a "big file" with firefox, let's say a game's patch, i recieve an error message after 2-3 minutes saying that the dowlaod will stop because the source file will not be read.
if i try with Ie after about the same amount of time i got an error message saying that the time allocated to the operation has been...

As you imagine this is already frustrating enough in itself, but today i discovered that the problem had somehow extended to streaming, i cannot load any file completely...

my config is brand new from A to Z, so i really don't know where to look for.

Any Idea ?

Thanks
 

A:Impossible to download anything

Does your Internet keep dropping (Are you on wireless or something?).

Your topic suggests you can't download "anything", yet below you say you have trouble downloading "anything big". I'm assuming you can download small files?

You could always try using a download manager rather than using your browser to download the files. Search the forums for a thread on download managers if you want to find out more.

Leechget is what i use at present.

Regards,

Hello, today all of a sudden my PC just BSOD'd out of nowhere. Now when I try to boot into normal mode it BSODs, and if I try to go into safe mode it either BSOD's or stalls while loading classpnp.sys. I was able to boot using Last Known Good Configuration but it's really aunstable. Windows boots fine but it can BSOD at any momeny and when I tried to run an anti-virus the whole computer froze altogether near the end. I can get into System Repair options but I don't know what to do. I tried to use system restore in there but it said I had no restore points which I thought I did. It also said local disc D: near the top tab even though my local drive is C. Can someone help me out? My OS is Windows 7 32-bit.

This computer was recently used to look for a certain video online, and, unsurprisingly, it got a virus and/or some spyware. My homepage gets redirected to a million spyware protection sites (which seem like they're the hijackers themselves) and I'm having a hard time fixing it. So far I've run CW Shredder, Spybot S&D, and Adaware. The last two seemed to help, but adaware was unable to delete one of the trojans and the problem is still there.

This is going to be a long post. I'll start from the beginning.

Windows 7 (64 bit premium) came to my door today. I put it in my disc, logged on to my windows xp account. A pop up came up saying, "close any programs still on xp". So i googled how to do that, and it said to wipe my fdisk. I opened the console and did so, but that it didn't know if it was an external or internal command. So i googled another way to do it, and it get compmgmt.msc as a command to enter into my start>run thingy. I do that, and i go to disk management. Then i went to format, and hit the start button (not on the bottom of the screen, the little pop up window from format). Then it tells me i need to go to safe mode. I did, and went to the command prompt safe mode. I typed in fdisk, but got the same message as before. I hit restart, and went into regular safe mode. The other places i read about said to do it in administrator. The administrator had never been there before, and had just popped up. I hit enter on the password to see if it would go, but it wouldnt. so i hit restart, but this time windows 7 started up instead. Then i got stuck and froze my computer, so i restarted again. Then this message popped up before i get to the loading screen:

windows could not start becasue the following file is missing or corrupt: <windows root>\system\hal.dll.

A:impossible to get from windows xp to 7

You can't start setup from Windows. And you can't format the drive from which you are running Windows, any more than you can dig a hole in the ground you are standing on. You need to boot from the DVD and then remove the partitions when you have the option. After that, just follow the prompts.

There is no "fdisk" in Windows since around 10 years ago and it shouldn't be used on modern systems. Partitioning and formatting are part of setup. There are no messages from Windows 7 setup that mention fdisk, ever.

There are applications that can do this. One that I know of is Virtual Audio Cable.

Ok If anyone can help me with this i will be impressed

I play on an online game and i was recently key logged. I injected a DLL into the game, and inside the dll there was a key logger.
Only one virus scanner can identify it and i don't have the virus scanner (CPsecure).

The keylogger is called Troj.Gamethief.w32.wow.bwa

Heres how this thing works. Basically the key logger doesnt run UNLESS i inject it into my game.exe. So its not a threat to any other passwords, just my game one. I believe it sends my account/pass when i load it.

If i removed the dll the keylogger would be removed also, but i want to use this program so im trying to avoid that. The only solution i can come up with is using a hex editor to stop the function. But i am not familiar enough with hex editors to do this.

So i guess i need someone with hex editing knowledge to help me remove this. or someone who knows a program i havnt found on google yet.

Thanks

I have what would seem at first to be a very simple problem with my wireless mice, but all of my attempts at solving it have yielded no progress. I am hoping for someone hardware-savvy to help me out. Here's my schtick:

I began experiencing skipping with my wireless mouse just subtle enough to irritate me and throw off my game (Dota and the like) a few weeks ago. I was using, at that time, a larger Logitech mouse. Unfortunately, I can't recall the make of it, but I had been using it for at least two or three years. One of my front USB ports on my machine doesn't work at all, but I tried the back of my tower and also on the side of my secondary monitor. No improvement. So naturally, I concluded that either my mouse or receiver was just aged and in need of replacement.

I have now been using this Logitech m510 for a week, but the slight skipping is still there, at times more or less noticeable. This led me to believe it was a trouble with the surface of my wooden desktop. I cleaned it thoroughly-- nothing. I tried a mouse pad-- nothing. The receiver is in clear sight directly beside my shoulder, so I would like to think that interference could not possibly be so sensitive. Where is the trouble? Coincidentally ALL of my USB ports?

My PC is a decently powerful machine, I built it within the last year. I am running Win7 64-bit from a Corsair Force 3 SSD with an i5-2500k CPU and 8GB of RAM. My GPU is an AMD Radeon HD 6800. Any ideas? If you need more information fr... Read more
