Ever since I updated my video card drivers to be able to play Tomb Raider, I've been getting some fairly frequent BSOD's. It always happens when I click on something on my computer, whether it's a folder or application.

I attached all my recent minidumps, as well as the output folder from "BSOD File Collection" and perfmon zip file.

I did run driver verifier, and then after restarting, the computer just got all these glitchy shapes on the screen and the mouse froze, but I didn't get a BSOD so no dump file was created. Ran system restore afterwards and everything was well.

Reset the system back to default for troubleshooting purposes.

Two methods:

1. Go into the BIOS and select 'load default settings' and then save & exit.

2. Open up your computer (unplug power cord first) and clear the CMOS. This can be done if your motherboard has a jumper, or you can remove the battery on the board for ~10 seconds and put it back. This will reset the BIOS settings to default (non-overclocked).

Moving onto the perfmon:

My entire computer black screened on me. It will not display anything. I am assuming its the video card because when I turn it on everything moves and operates like normal. It started when i was playing a game and the game froze. It was unresponsive to the task manager, as it wouldn't open at all. So I restarted my computer. I heard a low but distinct beep that did not pause at all, just keep a low shreek sound till eventually stopping. I have disassembled the computer and reassembled it and still nothing. But the machine still turns on. Is there any course of action anyone would reccomend? I am really desperate and frustrated that I cannot solve this on my own. I would be very grateful for any help suggested.

Hi all.

A friends Gateway desktop will not boot up. It does power up but nothing at all will display on the screen, not even the post diagnostic. I think that either there is something wrong with the BIOS or the on board video is gone and just won't display what is happening. Just wondering if anyone else would have any ideas?

Thanks.

I would like to get a video from the Raedon HD 7000 series, more specifically, 7700 or 7800.

I managed to find my computer's specs online and want to ask if I were to get a new card, would I need to upgrade anything else, like a better PSU, or a better CPU to prevent the card from being bottlenecked. I don't mind if it's bottlenecked a bit, but I would like to run Skyrim (as well as BF3) on high or ultra and be able to play Witcher 2 more smoothly.

The computer specs can be found here on the official HP site. I hope this is enough information to answer my question.

If I have forgotten or you need anything else, feel free to tell me and I will update ASAP.
 

A:Thinking of upgrading my video card, can I get some input?

Well you'd definitely need a better PSU than that 300W one which came with the HP. What's your total budget for the card + PSU?

Your i7 2600 processor is fine... actually it's more than fine since PC makers generally always tend to make CPU-heavy and GPU-light machines.

I couldn't find anything useful on the net and on the microsoft kb. the video card was s3 virge / dx on board . s3 375/775 ver. 2. i might have installed the wrong driver. but now i can't go into windows or safe mode or last known good config to chage the driver. i tried seating it in abother slot and i also tried another video card. i also tried changing settings in the bios such as disabling video memory caching and shadowing. and i also tried the defaults but no luck.
 

A:video driver - getting bsod

What is the computer name and model number. Without that it's hard to tell you how to disable the onboard video because I think this is why you're getting a BSOD. Also not uninstalling the previous card/onboard drivers will cause these types of problems.

Hi circle26.

Update the display driver to 332.21 WHQL.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Well these were caused by two things. Your video driver which is current and may in fact be crashed by what I suspect is the actual cause. WNDA31vx.sys driver which is your wifi driver is both old and I suspect what is really crashing.

I would un-install both completely and install fresh copies of bot.

I would also run a system file check to repair and verify your system files
(type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow)

If you are overclocking stop

I've been trying to resolve a BSOD at startup error.

Win 7 Ultimate on newly formatted HD.

1. have installed updated chipset and bios on MB.
2. Installed Win 7 and got BSOD (pointing to nvlddmkm.sys)
3. removed video driver and restarted with generic driver...system booted fine.
4. Let win 7 update, and got BSOD again, pointing to nvlddmkm.sys
5. again reverted to generic, and this time updated using the nvidia driver executable file on their website.
6. BSOD pointing to nvlddmkm.sys
7. verified that memory, MB, etc. was part of the approved set from ASUS.

My hardware:

ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution with anywhere from 2 to 6 gig, depending on when I tested it.

Core i7 920 cpu

Nvidia GTX 285 video card

1TB SATA HD in IDE mode. (Someone previosuly told me to try AHCI, which was a red herring)

Anyone have thoughts about what to try next? I'm using the 64-bit version of Win 7, but have the same issue when I have tried the 32-bit version.

Have also tried one rev back of nvidia drivers, with same results. I can run Win 7 in generic video driver mode, but it crashed if I try to use the manufacturer's driver for the video card.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I was playing a game in google chrome and also had a youtube video open in another tab. Suddenly my screen went black, Windows Aero effects were off for a few seconds, then they went back up. White bars started to appear randomly on the screen, an error popped up that the Video Driver had crashed. After a couple of seconds it looked like it was getting back but then the screen went black again and the BSOD appeared.
It is the first time this has happened. I hope you people might be able to find the exact cause and offer a solution.

So i've done the searches on here and google, but nothing jumps out at me as the problem.

While watching RecTV one day (i've used this MCE for 2 years with no problems) I got this blue screen of death. The computer kept restarting, and giving me this BSOD. I did a force update of software via device manager (browsing my computer for the files) and things seemed to work great, until I ran MCE (which opened fine) but anything with video crashed it with the BSOD. I went to nVidia's site (using the 8500GT) and downloaded their drivers, same thing, after restart everything loaded fine until messing with MCE (BSOD).

I'm confused as how to proceed. Reinstalling Vista is not an option, I have too much software invested in this system to start from scratch. Should I uninstall all the video card drivers and start from scratch there? (If so, what's the best way to do that?)

Any advice is appreciated,

Long story short.

Built the system in January 2009. Ran like a dream. Around November/December 2009, started having issues with the video card (or what seemed to be the video card) crashing intermittently (freezing, kaleidoscope-like on the screen after a few seconds). It would happen seemingly at random (sometimes once a week, other times once every 10 minutes). It would happen with nearly every game possible.

SO two years after building the system, I decide to finally replace the video card (assuming that was the issue as I know it's dying because it's fan grinds like mad now).

Works like a charm.. until I try to play Starcraft II.

Starcraft II begins to play fine (generally for about 5-30 minutes), then freezes for 20-30 seconds and crashes the drivers or just stays frozen altogether (both times requiring a hard reboot). If I try to play it in Windowed Mode, it'll do the same thing except instead of crashing the drivers, it pulls the kaleidoscope stunt that my old card did, but only for the actual game window (not my full monitor), freezing my screen completely. This isn't a once in awhile issue, it's a guaranteed 'if i try to play Starcraft II for any medium to extended period of time (even an hour) it will crash the drivers/card'

The same issue has happened 3-4 times playing Heroes of Newerth (drivers crashing) and only one time while playing Black Ops (ever, and I can play it for 6-8 hours straight and not have issues)

A:Video related BSOD/driver crashes

This is a known problem called an infinite loop with the Nvidia driver. I'm just searching for a solution.

Well, after a lot of searching I could write a book on the number of different solutions I came across. The only common denominator is the driver for the graphics card. These problems with the infinite loop go back at least 5 years. If you google for Nv4 infinite loop you will see what I mean.

My only suggestion is to first follow this guide to delete any drivers that were installed and have not been deleted. This process allows you to delete drivers that you would otherwise not be able to see that could be causing conflicts. Follow this by downloading the latest driver from Nvidia and installing it. This works for XP as well as Vista and 7.

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/remove-old-drivers-after-upgrading-to-new-hardware/

I would also reinstall the motherboard chipset driver with the latest version and check that your bios is up to date.

The latest driver from Nvidia is only about a month old so will hopefully be OK once any old drivers are cleaned out.

Other than upgrading to XP 64 bit or taking the leap to windows 7 I found no other viable suggestions.

I've just built a new computer last friday and i've had some problems with it BSODing.

It seems to have problems when playing games and starting videos on youtube or w/e.
When it crashes it won't reboot normally until i leave it off for about 5 min. It reboots fine in safe mode every time. This seems like a lack of cooling to the video card at first but i have run some stress tests that put the video card temp leveling out at 80?C.

I've installed and reinstalled the newest drivers, however, sometimes when i reboot windows will have a pop up bubble that says my driver version (266.58) has stopped responding but successfully recovered. This message pops up while my screen is flickering in and out.

I didn't know how to upload the perfmon/report html file because either i'm dumb or the directions aren't very clear.

These are some of the errors i have been having. They seem to be pretty consistent after a crash.

A:BSOD: problems with video card driver?

Hello,

Start by reseating your graphics card; make sure it's in securely. If that doesn't work, do you have any other cards you could try? If you have onboard graphics, give them a try; if not, try to borrow a card from a friend.

There is a January 2011 version of your graphics drivers out; try uninstalling your current drivers in Device Manager, and then installing these ones: NVIDIA DRIVERS 266.58 WHQL

Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit (SP2)
HP Pavilion tx1220us Tablet PC (2 years old now)

So this all started a year ago, after a video driver update from Windows Update. Since then, whenever Vista enters/exits a full-screen operation, it shifts out of Aero (resulting in a black screen for 5 seconds, most noticeable with calling UAC).
I've been trying to rollback or get a better update for the driver ever since (especially because Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor says the driver needs to be updated), but have had no success.
A couple months ago I tried installing a video driver with a modded INF. As a result, problem still not fixed, and screen orientation functionality disabled.
Since then, trying to update the video driver (from HP, HP Recovery, and Windows Update) results in a BSOD half-way through (stop 0x7F,(0x0,0x0,0x0,0x0)). Then Windows fails to start, and executes Recovery Manager, which repairs and succeeds.
Obviously, if I didn't try to update the driver this wouldn't happen, but I'd like this to be somewhat resolved when 7 comes. Does anyone have any ideas that could help?

Hello all,

I'm new here so please bear with me. Recently I've been experiencing very frequent BSODs and I'm not sure what is the root cause so I need some help.

For starters, I've attached the required files after running the SF Diag Tool.

I'm running Win 7 Home Premium on an Asus U36JC laptop, which is about a year old.

I've made a few possibly related observations:

1. High chance of BSOD if I'm playing a video (either youtube or streaming client). A telltale sign is intermittent audio stuttering.

2. Shockwave flash plugin seems to be crashing on Chrome and Firefox a lot when I visit flash sites.

3. The spate of BSODs started to happen on and after 10th April 2012. I did a quick check to see what significant programs have been installed after this date, and they are:ASUS FancyStart ver 1.1.0
Asus ControlDeck ver 1.0.9
WinFlash 2.31.1
ASUS Virtual Camera ver 1.0.20
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 redistributable - x86 9.0.30729.17

Otherwise, there doesn't seem to be anything out of the ordinary. I hope someone can help me resolve this. Thank you in advance.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that not all crashes result in a BSOD. Some crashes happen in the midst of playing a video, with the audio stutter on loop. Some crashes are during seemingly random times when using different applications. I use this laptop for work so I don't do any gaming/graphic intensive stuff.

A:BSOD - possible video driver related crashes

Yes, several of the BSODs seems to be related to the graphics drivers, you need to update both the Intel driver and the Nvidia Driver.

I recently updated my graphics card driver and my computer has been bluescreening ever since. I think that is the problem, but I'd appreciate an insight that can be given.

A:BSOD Ever Since I Updated Video Card Driver

Hello jessebrownarrow, unfortunately Your uploaded files contained no dump files, which are what we use to debug systems. Please make sure your system is configured for Small Memory dumps. This will tell you how, Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD Next make sure there is a folder named Minidump in C:/Windows. If not, please create one.

In your error reporting I did notice quite a few errors in ClicktoRun.exe and InDesign.exe. You may start looking at those programs and see if they are updated and configured correctly. Those errors may be the source of your problems.

If you think your video card drivers are causing the problem, please reinstall them like this.

I am going to give you some links that will help you get a good clean install and not have any drivers you don't need that will conflict with other drivers. Download a WHQL driver from Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7 . Once you have them downloaded, uninstall you current driver from control panel. next clean up any left over drivers from following this tutorial Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling and select only ATI Display Drivers. After you have done that and rebooted, install the new driver, only select custom install and install only what you have to. Very few people need most of what they include.

Hello all,
Computer info-
ASUS EEE PC N450 Intel GMA 3150
1 Gb original Ram
Win 7 Starter OEM
One yr old, not physical damage

What happens-
When attempting to update, BSOD on restart, update fails, goes into startup repair loop
What works-
Boot to safe mode, uninstall Intel GMA 3150 driver (the latest from ASUS)
Restart, continue installing updates in Standard VGA mode, updates complete successfully

Once you reinstall the Vid driver- no problem UNTIL more Windows Updates- then same failure.

One more thing, Windows Update has a Win included update for this driver- has the same ill effect.

I am installing so many updates because wrestled with this problem for some time, until a full reformat was done, to no avail.

So what do I do, stick with 800 x 600 resoultion, or turn off Windows updates?!!!

A:Windows update + Video Driver= BSOD

I just successfully installed more updates that failed simply by turning the resolution to 800 x 600, without uninstalling the driver.

What is it about 1024 x 600 that causes a problem?

My sister's computer (which used to be mine, but I took pretty good care of it) has recently been experiencing some slowdown and freezing. This could probably be expected, seeing as she's trying to run The Sims 3 on a Radeon X1600 in an old Shuttle XPC, but it also happens when she has more than three tabs open. Yesterday, I decided to try and help her by turning off automatic restarts on System Properties, hoping to see the cause if it auto-restarted, but following this, on reboot, a BSOD saying that the video driver had failed to initialize came up [STOP: 0x00000084 (0x888f5df8, 0x889ec000, 0x88a8e000, 0x0005000)]. Safe Mode and starting with last known good configurations didn't help, but leaving it alone for an hour or so (after reverting to last good configurations) made it boot normally.

Anyone know if this sounds like a hardware or software (or firmware) conflict? The card has been in the machine for 2 years, which makes hardware or overheating issues seem more likely to me.

A:BSOD: video driver failed to initiate

Welcome to TSF

Upon turning off automatic restarts on System Properties will give you a BSOD. I use this to troubleshoot reboots so this is normal action.

Here are the system requirements for Sims 3
* 2.0 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
* 1 GB RAM
* 128 MB Video Card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
* The latest version of DirectX 9.0c
* Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2
* At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games
http://www.thesims3.com/game/systemreq

What are the system specs?


Run some tests

Test the Memory using memtest. Run about 7-8 passes should be enough to see if RAM is good.

Find the manufacturer of your hard drive and run their Hard Drive Diagnostics Utility.

Go to HERE and download latest drivers for the RADEON X1600 vid card. It might not hurt to re-seat the card too

I have been battling with BSOD's for a couple of months now. They first appeared after I installed a Hauppauge HVR 1600. A few weeks went by with no problems. I then began to get low bit rate erros while watching TV in Media Center. Shortly after that I received my first BSOD. The steps I have taken to lock down what may be causing it are as follows.

Reformatted and installed. BSOD after 2 weeks.

Deactivated the hardware. TV tuner.
Turned off services for Hauppauge

No BSOD's for a week. Then it happened, BSOD.

So i removed 2 DIM's of RAM leaving me with one stick of 2GB RAM. No BSOD's for 3 weeks.

After 2 weeks with no issues I placed one of the 2 DIMs i removed earlier back in. 4 GB of ram total. No BSOD's for 2 weeks.

I thought maybe it would be the RAM so I enabled the Haupauge TV tuner and started watching for 2 days. I just got my BSOD. Im sure its the tuner but wanted to see what you guys thought. Is there any way to fix this or work around it? Here is the problem details from the crash report.

This all started a month or two ago when I was suddenly having hard locks during the first 2-10 minutes of playing Overwatch. Turns out it wasn't just Overwatch as it also happened a lot in Watch Dogs too. There was no consistency between lock ups. I could be playing for an hour earlier in the day, leave my computer on for awhile, start it back up later and it crashes then. After a restart, it would sometimes crash a second time.

I thought it was a software issue so I reinstalled. This seemed to fix that issue, but I did get another hard lock after about an hour of Watch Dogs. After the reset, I noticed my Audio Service stopped shortly after getting into windows. Thinking it was linked, I downgraded to an older more reliable version of my Logitech G930 drivers. That seemed to fix the audio issue.

The next day is when I ended up getting this BSOD. I think it's all linked to my CPU since it's old as dirt and up until about 6 months ago, I had a motherboard that would kill video cards by either giving too much voltage or too little. Wouldn't doubt that it might have done damage to the CPU.

If you can shed some light on what my problem is, thanks in advanced.

Backstory:

I rebuilt my PC with a bunch of new parts and am having some new problems. The problem that I was investigating was the failure of my Marvell 9120 Sata 3 ports on my Asrock P67 Extreme4 Gen3. The ports failed before my RAM overclock attempts, and I will try to include everything in a proper timeline.

New components into my formerly stable rebuild:

Seasonic 1000w Platinum, 4 additional hard drives (2 SSD), Startech 9128 PCI-e SATA card, Overclocked my GTX 480 SLI cards, overclocked my RAM.

Problems presented before RAM and GTX 480 OC, but after the new computer was checked for stability. GTX 480 cards were recently overclocked, but stable during hard gaming and high res mods in Skyrim.

My SATA 3 ports were dead, but I didn't make that determination until today. I wasn't sure if they had completely failed, or if it was a driver conflict with my new card, so I tried various BIOS settings to the onboard Marvell 9120 controller. During that time tinkering, my computer refused to boot after I set the onboard Marvell controller to "bootable". It would hang before the Windows animation took place, but after the Windows text showed up during boot.

I then tried to reset the BIOS setting to turn off the bootable Marvell option, but it still would not boot. It only booted after I reset my RAM to stock settings. I got into Windows and ran sfc /scannow and no errors were found, although Windows prompted me to try to repair startup, and failed ... Read more

Got an issue that I need help on,
I have a fairly recent install of windows 7 professional x64 and I am getting BSOD's and driver failures.

I will be playing a video game (any game) and I will get some artifacting for a few seconds then the monitor refreshes and the game continues with slightly messed up graphics. Once the artifacting happens a few more times It will BSOD or I end the process.

usually the error is 0x000000C4 but occasionally other errors. I did re-seat the graphics card and RAM and that held off the BSOD's for about 24 hours.

I don't think it is the card as it is less than six months old and the occurance of the problem is random, and from what I can read from the logs, it is nvidia and direct X related.

Multiple graphics driver re-installs have not fixed it, nor has a system restore.

I tried to upload the .dmp file but it wouldn't let me so it is in a .zip

Then a BSOD shown up and said
"attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed"
This continue to happens when I reboot my PC.
I downloaded my video card driver from the Nvidia website so it's not a third-party driver.

Thanks for any help!

A:BSOD when starting my PC, should be caused by video card driver

Hi IvanS1069.

Update the display driver to the latest from Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers.

When done, 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. Also let us know if you have experienced any crash/BSOD and/or artifacts during the test.

Also report us for any further BSOD.

I've got a problem with a friends computer.

It is a Dell Inspiron 1300 with Windows XP Home
It has a video card built into the mobo...default Dell graphics kind of thing.

Anyway I was working on the computer because it was slow. I disabled a lot of unnecessary items in msconfig startup, and uninstalled some unwanted software. Then I restarted, all was okay. I uninstalled some more software, such as AOL, and the AOL connectivity Assistant (or something like that), and it said I needed to restart in order to delete all temporary files.

We I restarted and while windows was loading (immediately after the boot screen with the scrolling bar) it gave me a Blue Screen of Death.

"A problem has been detected and windows has beend {fecal expression} down to prevent damage to your computer.

The video driver failed to initialize
the usual BSOD suggestions

Technical information:
*** STOP: 0x000000B4 (0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00050000)
..."

I have tried all start up options including Safe Mode, Last known good config, etc. All result in the same error.

I have even tried a Windows Repair with the install disc. It copys the files over, then restarts after you take the disc out like normal, then when it should start the windows installer to finish the repair it hits the same error again.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hello,

It looks like you are using the release candidate still. If you are using a crack to prevent it from expiring, it may be the cause of this trouble, but even if not, you should purchase the official version. Do a clean install with a Genuine version of Windows, and if you are still having problems, we can continue from there.

Hello,

I bought a brand new Inspiron 5559 at the beginning of summer and have been unable to use it due to constant BSOD issues. From the moment I turned it on for the first time I have been getting constant screen corruption, BSOD, flickering and freezing. Since buying, I have tried off and on again to find solutions on this forum and other forums and have not found anything that has worked.
I have reset the Windows 10 PC using the recovery software many times now and so long as I stick with the basic display adapter driver included with windows there are no crashes or problems. The moment I install any Intel graphics driver from Dell's site, Intel's site or Windows update the computer is no longer able to boot into windows. In fact, the computer cannot even complete initial driver installation before the blue screens start. BSOD starts halfway through intel driver installs and once this happens it will never again boot into windows. On several occasions during a system reset, if the computer is connected to the internet, the computer will BSOD before windows even finishes installing.

Every BSOD lists graphics_TDR_failure or video_schedule_internal_error.

I am needing this computer for school now which is why I have decided to post my issue here. Any help is appreciated as I need this fixed.
