Preferred Solution: BSOD/Crashes while working on photoshop/surfing on Firefox/Idling

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.)

A: BSOD/Crashes while working on photoshop/surfing on Firefox/Idling

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.

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.

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.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hello All

I have been plauged with the dreaded blue screen of death for the past while now and I am running out of ideas. It happens randomly and without warning, even when I'm not actively using my PC.

The error that appears on the screen is something like "NTFS_File_System" but thats all that it gives me.

I have already replaced two harddrives, my motherboard and my video card ever since my install of Windows 8.1 64bit.

My old hard drive was deemed defective the store I bought it from, as I still had an In store product replacement warranty on it. I thought Hey, Awesome, It was only the hard drive.. but it still continues on...

I am stuck, I don't know what to do next... Attached is my SF_Diagnotic_Tool zipped file... I call upon the Internets and those who keep it running to help me please...

I appreciate any and all help. Thank you.

So I finally got around to running memtest86 4.0 overnight because I read somewhere that it should run to at least pass 7, and I always seemed to stop it early I guess..., and I woke up to this... I'm guessing bad ram? lol. although wondering, since its working on the Ram in slot 1 on the screen, would that compare to slot 1 on my motherboard... makes sense right?Attachment 33457

Ok so first off, damn this is a well laid out site!

Problem:

I bought this PC from from cyberpower via a retailer and it's been problematic ever since. I've been seeing BSOD's on a fairly regular basis, with them being most frequent while running games (WoW, f1 2012, D3). I've also had it crash and give me a BSOD while chrome was the only application running as well as woken up to a message stating I've recovered from an unexpected shutdown leading me to believe it had crashed in a similar fashion.

Already attempted:

I've ran the latest version of memtest, done 11 passes with no errors ruling out what I hoped was the issue. I've also used AMD's driver updater to ensure my GPU driver was up to date and I've still got the errors.

Hopefully I've provided everything necessary for someone to help me out. It's very much appreciated!

update* I've since turned driver verifier on after reading through another thread

2nd update* after rebooting once turning on verifier all hell broke loose, now I'm seeing bsod's after every attempt to boot. I booted in safe mode, ensured verifier was off yet i'm still unable to stay on. here are links to the 3 bsod's I've gotten after enabling verifier

A:Various BSOD's while gaming, surfing, idling.

1. Please update your bios to version 4001 as there are lot of memory and stability fixes...

2. the last few dmps are caused by directx.... now..since directX 11 is part of windows 7.. there is niothing much you could do other than reinstalling the windows 7.... but there are few things you could try first....

a) run dxdiag at the run command.. check for errors..

b) run windows update to install all the updates...

c) the bsod related to this could also be caused by hardware... the graphics card could be loose or the temps are high.. try reseating and cleaning the fans... check using speccy

3. Disable demon tools from startup.

Do these and let me know

UPDATE: please run the sfdiag tool again to upload the dmps caused by verifier

Hi all,

Seems like my new computer is not doing so well. I have been having BSOD Crashes and attached, are the dmp files.

Basically, I put together this computer myself and so far, it has been a rough learning process and now I am facing the latest challenge - BSOD.

I have done the following:
1. Updated to the latest Intel Board Bio
2. Updated video card driver
3. Download Intel's "Desktop Utilities" and monitor CPU & Board Temp (All very cool, never goes up to 40c)
4. I also ran the "sfc/scannow" cmd, it says "nothing wrong was found."

I hope you guys can help me.

Thank you in advance.

A:BSOD Crashes while reading surfing web

Both dumps report the same error code 0x7F, check here for a bit more info on this error code BSOD Index these types of errors can be quite general but hardware is normally the prime suspect especially as its a new system

I would recommend you disconnect all non essential hardware and reseat everything else, check all cards and ram slots are free of dust/dirt

You could also try running some hardware checks, heres some links for you
http://www.carrona.org/memdiag.html
http://www.carrona.org/hddiag.html

I would also recommend updating or removing these drivers as they are old and could be contributing to your problems

Hi,
I just got new memory sticks for my computer. And it was doing wonders for a month or so now. But last few days were impossible because of the constant crashes while using Photoshop or Illustrator.
Also I ran a bunch of Windows updates recently as well, but it seems like it only made the situation worse.
MemTest and Windows Memory diagnostics didn't show any errors.
SO here I am, hoping that someone here can help me to understand and fix this annoying issue.
Thanks in advance.

A:BSOD and constant crashes with Photoshop after adding more RAM

It is a stop 0x124. Hardware issue.

You are saying that you have added more RAM, and then it all started. It is possible, if the additional RAM is mismatch. Remove the additional RAM. Check the situation at the original RAM first. Is it still crashing? If yes, let us know, we will go for further steps.

If not, then the additional memory is mismatch.

Fixing husbands PC and got him to take a pic of BSOD. Has crashed within minutes of opening Firefox/Facebook since Wx Update on May 14, 2014. He says AVG also updated almost simultaneously. His FB account was hacked at this time and he changed his password after I ran CC Cleaner, AVG Scan. Earlier in May, the power supply of this box died because the fan seized. New power supply and fan installed about May 5th and computer ran OK until May 14. I updated all the drivers with OS device manager. HD Graphics was out of date and updated. All others claimed to be up to date. In addition to the SF Diagnostic tool file collected as per your instructions, I've also included the OS error message details that Microsoft's error reporting is not accepting "at this time". At first I guessed it was a bug in the Windows Update of 5/14, but my other Wx 7 machine is running just fine with the exact same updates, so I'm stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone,

We have a problem with one of our computers and BSOD - PC keeps crashing while using various applications and we cannot find a defining pattern. At first, I suspected the graphics card, however now I am not so sure, as the computer crashes with a bsod, after fresh bootup when left idle.

Could someone help us analyze the crash windows logs and steer us in the right direction?

I got a BSOD not long after experiencing weird crashes in firefox.

Brief description of what happened: Firefox crashed without an apparent cause. Get a popup explaining something went wrong with the plugin container. The option to restart firefox resulted in an immediate crash with an identical popup. Closed all instances of Firefox and tried again. It still crashed, even before I choose which firefox session to restore.

I restart my PC, restart firefox and don't restore my old tabs. After a few minutes thinking it might be okay, it crashes again after 30-60 seconds of watching a youtube video. After half a second of seeing the crash, windows goes into BSOD.

When the computer restarts, windows gives me this message about my BSOD

A:BSOD in Win7 after witnessing firefox crashes

My computer has now BSOD on me five more times in the 4 hours since the first time. One time I was playing a video file from my hard drive, and there was visible color distortion/digital static occurring for a couple minutes before the media player stopped responding, and then finally the BSOD. There have also been times where I was only reading a pdf and listening to music.

Using a program called BlueScreenView, I can say that all of these BSOD crashes except the most recent one have been MEMORY_MANAGEMENT errors and the crashing driver was 'ntoskrnl.exe'. The most recent BSOD occured when running DM log, and gave me a "NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM" error, caused by Ntfs.sys

The most common error is 0x0000008E, but I've also had 0x00000019, 0x00000024, 0x1000000A, 0x0000004E (PFN_LIST_CORRUPT), 0x0000007F, 0x0000000A (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL), and 0x00000050 (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA). Usually it crashes at startup, but it has taken as much as twenty minutes. I've tried defragging the hard drive, using a registry cleaner, and replacing Sygate firewall (see below) but nothing appears to have worked.

Then Sygate starting occasionally crashing while I was online. I replaced it with PC Tools free firewall, which hasn't had any problems. (Yet...)

Somewhere in the last several months (hard to say whether it was before or after Sygate and the BSODs, it seems to have been creeping up for a while) Firefox developed an increasing tendency to hang. It reached the point where it was basically non-functional for a good quarter hour after connecting. During that time doing anything - maximising or minimising windows, accessing the start menu - took forever. Then Firefox started crashing - constantly. I worked my way through the official trou...

As the title suggests, my computer will sometimes completely freeze up when I'm searching the net. I find it a lot when viewing political election maps, so I think it might have something to do with images/charts, but I'm not very tech savvy. Here are two URL's that recently crashed my computer:

Living In Manhattan Versus Brooklyn | Thought Catalog

Google Image Result for http://8gramgorilla.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/googleplus-big.jpg

It will start freezing by not letting me click on anything in the browser and then my mouse will stop working. My music keeps playing, though. This takes 10 seconds or so, and the only way to get out of it is to hold the power button.

I also have an on and off problem with accessing Facebook and Google. Every 30 minutes to an hour or so I won't be able to access them (happens to both at the same time) for a few minutes. I'll just get the page not displayed error, but I can go to any other site.

Your dumps do not show a probable cause.

In such cases we enable driver verifier to rule of buggy drivers.

Driver Verifier





Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in verifier and press Enter
- Select Create custom settings (for code developers) and click Next
- Select Select individual settings from a full list and click Next
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR Low Resource Simulation and click Next
- Select Select driver names from a list and click Next
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click Next
- Select Finish on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly.

I'm so tired. For the past two years or so I've just had BSODs at random intervals in my day. Whether I'm playing a video game with my friends or by myself, whether I'm watching YouTube videos, browsing the internet or hell, sometimes waiting for my computer to get to its initial password screen, these BSODs happen. There seems to be no pattern with them either. Just two weeks ago, I didn't have a crash for a whopping 10 days, and just 5 -10 minutes ago I did! I also would like to mention that I leave my computer on sleep mode during the night and did so every one of these 10 days, and the ones before them. What caused me to get the crashes again? Well, I restarted my computer and after that point, I've been once again getting these BSODs.
Some examples of BSODs I've gotten:
SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (have gotten this one the most)
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT
... and many others that I can't remember
5 Notes:
1. As mentioned, I leave my computer on sleep mode during the night.
2. My motherboard has a broken Ethernet port that was broken since I first built my computer back in November in 2013.

Hi, im new here but hoping that someone can help me out.

To give you some background info i have built myself a new pc this week which has been overall a great experence.

However i think im having problems with my RAM.

This is the specs of my pc:

ASUS P7H55-M Pro motherboard
Intel i5 760 processor
2 x 2GB OCZ Ram DDR3
ATI Radeon x1950 Pro

Right so initially i was having some firefox crashes which would come up with the box where you can click on the restart button. I would click on it and it would restart firefox but instantly crash when i restored my tabs from the previous session.

Then occasionally it would Blue Screen. Each time with a different type of error, "PFN_List_corrupt" "IRQL_not_less_or_Equal" and "Page_Fault_in_nonpaged_area".

After alot of google'ing everything seemed to be pointing towards the RAM.

So i took one stick of RAM out and the issues had gone. So i then changed the stick of RAM that was in the PC with the one that I had taken out and everything was fine.

I then tried one in the other socket and everything seemed fine too.

I had a look in the bios at the ram settings and everything was on auto so i changed the voltage to 1.6V even though the ram is 1.65V (the bios only gives options for increments of 0.1)

Im really not too sure what to do now. Maybe the Ram i bought is incompatable or something?

About a week ago I started getting this issue on Firefox: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_READ

The issue also causes games to crash such as Overwatch and Rocket League which causes a, " Overwatch stopped working in the graphics driver" issue, and can also on some instances cause BSoD.

I also tried to install Fortnite and ran into constant corruption errors and install loops, which is supposedly due to hardware errors or the HDD not being NTFS (Which both are).

A:BSOD after idling for a while

Why did you decide to completely reinstall your PC?

Your BIOS dates from 2011. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

I'm guessing that this is hardware/compatibility issues. Please start by running these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics

Also, please run Driver Verifier (according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings ) in case this is a software issue.

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

If you are overclocking any hardware, STOP. Reset any changed values back to default.

McAfee is a frequent cause of BSOD's. Please remove it using its removal tool from here:

Microsoft Security Essentials is recommended from a strict BSOD perspective.

Hello all, I come here after some help to solve the problem of my recurring BSODs, I have had 18 of them (well 18 minidumps are logged) since the 29th of August.

At first I came to think it was due to my PSU not giving off enough power when I leave my computer on overnight - even though it ran fine on WinXP so I turned off all powersaving settings yet it still occurs, and now it is happening while I am using it (just surfing the net or gaming).

My spec is listed - Everything is default, bar the GPU which came factory overclocked. The cpu sits at 30c - 35c and upto 50c when gaming, not sure about the GPU.

A:BSOD - While idling and using

There's a possibility that the machine has been pwned by malware, although I should emphasise that's just a wild stab in the dark.

The crash has something to do with a driver called gdrv.sys, except the one on your machine doesn't look quite like it should, hence the pwnage theory, but that might just be a side-effect of the way that data has been committed to the minidump at the time of the crash.

Does that box have a Gigabyte motherboard? If so, you might want to make sure the BIOS and the motherboard drivers are all up-to-date. If not, I suggest panicking and running every anti-malware scan you can find.

Hi guys and gals, this is my first post. I hope I have posted in the right thread, but not sure if this is a gaming issue or Windows issue.

I am at my wits' end and hope someone can help me. This is a new pc build using various parts we have accumulated. When using Internet Explorer I get app crashes. I have been playing DC Universe Online and get random app crash, display drivers stop responding, apphangB1, I also lose monitor signal. Here is a list of fixes we have tried already:

We have disabled internet explorer add ons and even tried disabling IE completely, to no avail
We have swapped out the 5770 for an 8800 GTX that we know works, same problem
We have the latest BIOS/drivers
We have run SpeedFan, CPU temp 41C
We have run Memtest for both sticks of RAM at the same time in slots 1 and 3 and there was an error, so we tried to isolate the bad RAM by testing invidivual sticks in slot 3 - no errors on either stick? therefore, we put the sticks in slots 3 and 4, assuming there may be a problem with slot 1 - worked ok for a couple of hours, then game crashes and black screen with sound requiring reboot. Monitor is fine, as it works on my BF's pc with no problems.
We have tried a couple of installs of Windows 7
We have run chkdsk - no errors
The BIOS is running on default, nothing overclocked - we have used the correct timings for the RAM and autotimed them, same problem

We are currently not using an antivirus because we did not want to add more problems, but we ... Read more

I've been googling this problem for a week now with no answers. I've done a lot of things in an attempt to solve this problem.

OK, so lately I've been getting disconnected from the internet. My cable modem is routed through a network hub, and then to my PC.

I can ping localhost, but cannot ping anything else, such as google.com or even my ISP's DNS server. In the network panel (Windows XP SP3), it says i am connected, but when I check properties I can see that it is not sending and receiving packets at all.

I've used commands pertaining to "netsh" to clear WINSOCK (and more I just forgot).

I have no idea as to what has caused this. The only significant thing that has happened prior to the problem was a storm that caused a power outage.

I'm thinking this is an Ethernet port issue, but a year ago I received the same problem, and somehow it was magically fixed.

I performed a scan for viruses, malware, and spyware but saw nothing. I then attempted to clean my registry (barely did much) and checked my Hijack This log and it still shows nothing out of the ordinary.

In Device Manager, it shows no problem with the actual device so I'm clueless...could it be a registry corruption?

I really need in-depth help because this seems to be a specific problem...
To put this all in brief:

1. Says I'm connected to internet.
2. Cannot send or receive packets.
3. Cannot ping anything but localhost.
4. Disconnection seems to be random.

Hey guys,

Was logged off last night about 9 pm and woke up at 7 am turned on monitor and had BSOD. Its happened last couple days and seems to only happen while Idling or after restart. Its the same PC I've been having issues with for the last year just don't have the funds to upgrade anything, else I would and toss this to someone else.

Included the SF files, which includes last 5 dumps, I think I just might have to keep dealing with this for a bit more.

Thanks

A:BSOD while Idling overnight

All the bugchecks are different, as well as the probable causes. So it gives a hint of failing hardware, apparently; which is supported by one bugcheck, too.

Code:
BugCheck 3B, {c0000005, fffff96000222e1d, fffff88002561980, 0}

Probably caused by : hardware ( win32k!DEVLOCKBLTOBJ::bLock+379 )

Followup: MachineOwner
---------
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.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark. Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us.

Stress test the CPU. Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95
It saves the result as a .txt file in the prime95's folder. Upload the file for us.

*** Also, Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
And if you have libusb | SourceForge.net installed by any chance, uninstall it, at least as a test.

Let us know the results.

Hi, got a bsod while the computer was on desktop doing nothing.

Info of the system:
? OS - Windows 7 x64
? Downloaded windows 7 x64 professional from MSDNAA for universitys
? age of hardware is 1 week, more or less.
? Age of OS is the same

? CPU: Intel i5 - 2500k, overclocked to 4,4ghz with AI autotuner (havent done it manually)
? Video Card: Asus geforce gtx 560 Ti
? MotherBoard: Asus P8Z68 V-PRO
? Power Supply - Corsair TX850
? HDD's: Kingston hyperx 120 gb SSD and samsung spinpoint F3 1 TB

I built the computer myself and its the first time i did it aswell. Been getting a few Bsod's but i think i fixed some by looking up on google and updating drivers. But this one i have no clue why it happened. I attached a minidump file, if thats any help.

A:bsod by just idling on desktop

Hi -

The lone BSOD was VERIFIER_ENABLED, but named no 3rd party driver. The cause here = hardware failure

Bugcheck = 0xf4 (0x3,,,) = a critical process suddenly terminated

Exception code 0xc0000006 was noted = I/O error

Your Kingston HyperX SSD is #1 suspect here.
