Hello all,

I've been having a few problems with my laptop since I bought it. The problem mainly occurs when I'm playing a game (usually xcom: enemy unknown or deus ex HR at the moment) but has occurred when I'm browsing the internet (albeit far less often). The BSODs appear to be random but I'm using a blue tooth mouse and have noticed the BSOD will usually happened if I'm using it. I've also noticed that my laptop screen with black out for a split second on games that are quite graphics intensive for my system.

Its been frustrating me a lot so I reinstalled and fully updated windows 7. The GPU drivers are all up to date also.

I've attached the SF file that is required and would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks for your time

Hello sevenforums Community,
since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.
In the last two weeks i always got this message (STOP : 0x00007A (0xFFFF6FC50023598,0xFFFFFFFFC000000E,0x000000002A991880,0xFFFFF8A0046B30BE) ) without a sound and the pc didnt instantly reboot.
But the last days the Blackscreen stayed like 4 second so i couldnt see the error message on it, so i dont know if the error changed but there was this buzzing sound.

I really appreciate help (and sorry for my english skills ^^)

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

I just updated and rebuilt my PC and have reinstalled Win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a BSOD while using the PC. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet.
From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Hello guys. So here is my issue i dont really know how to specific it further then this still hope it will help.

I have been getting BSOD for a while now and it's getting to the point i cant do a single thing on the computer. I did the config for dumps and so on and ended up with this RAR file with all the info i assume. I mostly get the bluescreen when i try to watch anime etc on googlechrome. It never works it's a matter of seconds before the BSOD comes. But when watching it on other browsers like opera it works just fine "mostly" even there it bluescreens from time to time. And then there is when it's most fatal, Playing onlinegames. Whenever I play online games like World of warcraft, League of Legends, Heroes of Neweart etc etc etc i risk getting bluescreens. It differs very much from game to game how often the bluescreens appear and it seems to not be preformance related since sometimes i play constantly for hours when maxing out games and pushing the computer to it's limits when it comes to frames. And still the bluescreen lies in dorment waiting for a more suitable interrupt for me. From the looks of it the bluescreen is related mostly to my operatingsystem more then commponents after i looked at the dumpfiles via "Bluescreenviewer".

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this and i hope you guys can help me with this. also this is my first post so I maybe did this typical "bad thread", Still i hope this will get me atleast closer to... Read more

Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

Hello, first time poster looking for help as I can't diagnose my issue after trying numerous things. Currently when I play a game the BSOD happens randomly, I can go a whole day without it, or it can happen frequently. It happens the most when I close or exit a game, then it'll kick to a blue screen.

I really appreciate what you guys do and I hope I followed all the instructions right on how to post my logs and stuff, here's the attachment and some basic system specs:

Before we can even begin to find the underlying cause you need to update the following drivers. Especially asacpi.sys. Yours is from 2005


Code:
ASACPI.sys 3/27/2005 10:30:36 PM

netr28x.sys 2/25/2009 11:02:09 PM
How To Find Drivers:




Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

Hello,

So first of all, I am not a computer wizard. Some terms I might not understand as i've never had a problem like this before, but i'll try to enlist as much information as possible.

Since last friday or so, i've suddenly encountered a BSOD. Now, i've had them before and it was only once. After a reboot it usually never happend again and everything was cool. But since friday, they popped up again. Mainly during playing Battlefield 1, but i've also had it happen during Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2.

I've had multiple BSOD errors, which are:

- IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL
- BAD POOL HEADER
- MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
- SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
- APC_INDEX_MISMATCH

Now if it were one, I might've been able to pinpoint the issue, but.. They're constantly different errors that happen. Now, to explain a bit more in detail how it goes:

So i'm just playing a match of Battlefield 1. After 10/15 minutes give or take, it'll bring me to the blue screen. After processing whatever it has to process, computer shuts down and it starts to restart. At this point it will be stuck in an infinite restart loop, where my monitor will not display anything as well. It just says it's not connected to something, which it clearly is. After manually closing and rebooting, i'll have to do this a few times or mess with the HDMI a little bit before I get my monitor to pop up again. Once that happens, I get stuck in the beginning screen where you can see your HDD/SSD installed. It won't go further than that unless I ... Read more

Hi guys! I badly need your help. I started getting BSOD two weeks ago. As far as I can remember the first time I had a BSOD was on the day I installed Max Payne 3 (I read somewhere that the some guy had also this problem when he installed max payne). There were two occasions that I got a BSOD upon starting Max Payne 3. But lately I'm getting BSOD when doing low-load stuffs like browsing with no other apps opened. I've already done memtest with 10 passes with no errors. I'm 24 hours prime95 stable. I just don't get it! I've manually set my timings for my ram. I'm not doing any overclock.

Short version: My PC is getting a BSOD at random times when full screen gaming. The BSOD screen says the video card times out.

Long Version:
I have a gaming PC that a friend generously gave me when he built a new one. It's worked great, but in November the Tagan ITZ 700 watt power supply died. He had planned to do SLI and never did, so during Neweggs holiday sale I picked up a Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 thinking it should be sufficient.

Everything has run smoothly with the new PSU except for the fact that when playing games like Torchlight 2 and Starcraft 2, my machine will BSOD. I had random BSOD's with Starcraft 2 and then suddenly had 4 nights in a row with no problems and then today it keeps crashing at the same spot in the campaign. There is little consistency to the crashes other than that and under normal operations, like email, web browsing, etc, it has only BSOD'd once and that was during a youtube video.

My first thought is that the one thing that has changed recently is the PSU and prior to that I only recall a rare crash here and there. I thought maybe my new PSU wasn't good enough, but everything I've read online about the requirements for the GTX 460, including the manual, say 450 watt minimum and I exceed that.

Here is a list of things I have tried:

- Updated video card and mobo drivers, I have also uninstalled the nvidia drivers, run Driver Sweeper in safe mode, and reinstalled drivers in normal mode.

I keep getting BSODs when I play games for a short while. At first I thought it was a bad installation of Windows, so I did a clean format (full) of my SSD and a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Installation failed quite a few times before finally succeeding. Tried another copy of Windows 7, same install failures. I finally finished reinstalling Windows 7 on my PC. I suspected the RAM to be at fault so I ran MemTest86+ and found a ton of errors. Upon closer inspection of the BIOS settings, I found that my board was clocking my ram in [Auto] mode at 1333mhz instead of the factory 1600mhz (Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 @1600 CAS9 on Asus Sabertooth Z77). I updated my BIOS to the latest as of this posting and I still have to manually set the memory frequencies for it to run at 1600mhz.

Everything seemed fine for a few hours running prime95. I supposed my PC was fine now after that clean install of Windows 7, but a few minutes into playing Battlefield 3, I BSOD. I am no pro at reading dump files and I was hoping someone could help me isolate the sources of my BSODs. I've attached the minidump files for each BSOD below. Thanks!

Hello, I have a question. My Lenovo Yoga 720 15.6" doesn't overheat, although I've noticed something rather odd. When I play Fifa 17 with the charger plugged in, the fans are very loud and the laptop gets pretty hot. When I play Fifa 17 on battery only (charger not plugged in) the fans are quite silent and the laptop doesn't get hot at all. Why is that? For all I know, I would expect the exact opposite...Thanks in advance!Kind regards,Tijs

A:Lenovo Yoga 720 15" : hot when playing games on charger, cool when playing games on battery???

The CPU runs at full speed when it is plugged in and runs more slowly on battery to save power.  Faster = more heat.

Hi Aviraj & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

I have analysed your dump files and below has been provided an analysis of the same for informative purposes :-
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000007e)
This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints the driver/function that caused the problem.
Let's check the stack -

Code:
7: kd> knL
# Child-SP RetAddr Call Site
00 ffffd002`01ea7970 fffff801`ae339456 nt!KxWaitForLockOwnerShip+0x12

03 ffffd002`01ea7be0 00000000`00000000 nt!KiStartSystemThread+0x16


So, we see that the system was waiting to get a lock on a resource but sadly it was not fulfilled and hence the system crashed . Sadly, the dump file failed to capture the culprit in this case.

Below is a list of 3rd party drivers present on your system -

I was playing Skyrim and then I hit Esc to go do something and then when I came back to my PC and sat down to play again it BSOD. Its BSOD before but I fixed it by unistalling Windows 7 and reinstalling it. Its been almost a year with out a BSOD. Now its BSODing randomly and sometimes one after another within 2-20min. I replaced my RAM in the past and that helped and also my Graphics card in the past. Im thinking it might be my graphics card. I noticed they stopped making it recently so maybe they stopped with updates too. I don't know. Just want to get my PC running smooth again.

Welcome

Your dumps don't have a probable cause, keep blaming windows files (Not true causes)

Since everything was fine with the laptop before the power failure, your best bet would be to dismantle and reconnect all the hardware components (if you're good with it) and do a fresh install of windows on your laptop

Fill in your specs and the make of the laptop

A:BSOD When playing games random Bsod messages

No Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 70 to 140 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Don't worry about the specific number, it's just important that you have checked and installed any updates that were available (and didn't experience any errors).

You have a 802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card:





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 systems - using older drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have the latest Win8/8.1 drivers - DO NOT use older drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.



This device is disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?





Multiple Card Reader USB Device USBSTOR\DISK&VEN_MULTIPLE&PROD_CARD__READER&REV_1.00\058F63666438&0 This device is disabled.



Please enable the device and then ensure that it's drivers are fully updated to the latest, Win8.1 compatible version. Then feel free to disable it again if you'd like.

BSOD #1: It started at around January 15th - basically when i shoot down the system, theres a suprisingly short windows update. Then whenever i boot the PC and it starts to configure the update, bluescreen pops up with an error code 0x0000007E and i have to use system recovery to succesfully run the system.

BSOD #2: Ive never fixed it and it occures since i bought the PC. When i play games (and very rarely when using internet browser) my PC is getting random freezes, display driver errors, monitor is turning off and of course sometimes BSODs happen. Ive tried several different drivers, memory/hdd tests, temperatures, stress tests, 2 different monitors and GPUs, and plugging out/in hardware inside the PC case then i gave up. So basically all the BSODs listed in a ZIP file until January 15th are related to this problem.

Hello, tbrown26. I will try to help you with this.

None of your dump files were overly definitive, as usual. The first thing I would like you to do is fill out your system specs in detail. Sometimes we have to look up a component and Manufacturer and model number helps us to do that.
Please fill out your System Specs

Your System Specs will help us to help you, and doing it in this manner will make them available to all helpers in every post and keep us from hunting for them. We ask that you fill them out in as much detail as possible including Desktop or Laptop, Model number if it is an OEM computer and all components with the Manufacturer and Model number if possible.

If you will go to your last post and click the 'System Specs' in the bottom left of the post, you will find a link to update your system specs. Please fill those out in as much detail as possible, making sure to click save at the bottom of the page. If you would like to know what we would like, you can click 'My System Specs' at the bottom left of this post to see mine. If you do not know what your components are, this will help you accomplish this task. System Info - See Your System Specs

i experienced a few bsods since i started gaming on my pc a few weeks ago. i bought a new graphicscard and a new power supply. when i start the game it lasts a few minutes sometimes an hour until i got the bsod.
i checked bluescreenview and in 5 from 6 cases it blames ntoskrnl.exe as the problem. the other cause would be nvlddmkm.sys.

i updated all nvidia drivers for the graphics and the win 7 directx. since then it seems getting better, because bsods don?t happen that fast anymore.
sfc /scannow does not report anything bad.
i dont?t think its an overheating issue, cause my gpu does not get over 76 degrees.
i just played two games since i started gaming, both over steam. metro 2033 and half life 2. i wondered if it might be a prob with steam???

i attached the health report and the dumpfiles, i hope i did not forget anything.

after about 20 minutes of playing a game, the game will crash with generic errors. Sometimes it'll bluescreen, but occasionally it'll just crash and crash again if you reboot it.

After the bluescreen, my pc was trying too boot from a non existent (that apparently now exists, according to My Computer) a drive (floppy disc drive). It only does this after the bluescreen, however the floppy disc drive is now permanently listed under My Computer.

I'm using W7 64bit. Originally it was vista 32, but fresh installed up to w7. I THINK its an OEM copy, as I obtained it while I was a university student through some scheme (mdsna or something? i dont really remember). The system itself is approx 3 years old. I have never made any hardware modifications.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help, and i'll be routinely popping back here to see if there any additional information required.

also i should be noted prior to the crash i experience artifacts prior to the crash. sometimes even with watching a video after the crash (when it hasnt bluescreened on me)

I THINK its an OEM copy, as I obtained it while I was a university student through some scheme (mdsna or something? i dont really remember). The system itself is approx 3 years old. I have never made any hardware modifications.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help, and i'll be routinely popping back here to see if there any additional information required.

also i should be noted prior to the crash i experience artifacts prior to the crash. sometimes even with watching a video after the crash (when it hasnt bluescreened on me)

Checkup hi and welcome to Seven Forums

You have two significant problems.
1-ASACPI.SYS a major cause of BSOD's in the 2005 rev.

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

The 2005 (and easrlier) version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUS teK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE

Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).

2-Your video driver. Re-install newest using this method
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Hello

I have recently been getting BSOD while playing certain games such as Skyrim and GTAIV. My computer seems to randomly shut down and restart. When it turns back on Windows shows that it was a BSOD and I am unsure why it is happening.

Nothing appears to be overheating as everything is around 40C-45C. I have tried re installing my GPU drivers but I don't know what else could be causing the problem.

Hope you can help

Hello TrueShott and welcome to Sevenforums.

* How long have you been running Windows 7 on this hardware?
* Does it only happen while you're gaming?
* What are your temperatures just before a crash?

BSOD Analyse

How long have you been running Windows 7 on this motherboard? I believe that your hardware barely can support running Windows 7. Your BIOS is from 2009 which could be problematic.

Here are some of my suggestions:
Search your hardware parts on the Windows 7 Compatibility Center, and ensure that Microsoft has approved the product to be 7 ready.End with the Upgrade Advisor afterwards.

Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows

Hi all,

First post so please bear with me if I need to take this in baby steps.

My eMachines e630 laptop, running Windows 7 Home Premium x64 has been crashing after about half an hour of playing any game except Starcraft. I get no warning, no strange behaviour or lag in game, just a sudden BSOD. The thing that has me stumped is that it's a different bug check code almost every time. I've attached the info to this post. Your advice would be most appreciated.

A:Various BSOD while playing games

One dump blames your ATI driver

Uninstall it then use driver sweeper to remove leftover files
Guru3D - Driver Sweeper
Reinstall your ATI drivers: ATI Catalyst

Update DirectX: Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer

An USB device/port is also causing BSODs
Remove any unnecessary USB device or plug it in another port


This was likely caused by the following module: atikmdag.sys
Bugcheck code: 0x3B (0xC0000005, 0xFFFFF80002AD719D, 0xFFFFF880029450C0, 0x0)

This was likely caused by the following module: usbport.sys
Bugcheck code: 0xD1 (0x1C, 0x2, 0x1, 0xFFFFF880043C6417)
Error: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Hey there,

Since the last few days I've been having trouble with uh.. I don't know what exactly, that's why I'm here =) First let me give my specs..

OS: Windows 7 Professional x64 Retail (Dutch)
CPU: AMD Phenom II X3 710
MotherBoard: Asus M4A78T-E
PSU: Cooler Master Real Power M520
Memory: Kingston ValueRAM 6GB (2x2GB + 2x1GB)
GPU1: Sapphire Radeon X1650 Pro
GPU2: Radeon HD3300 (Onboard GPU)

So.. I'll explain in a sec why I posted both GPUs. It all started a few days ago. I was gaming (they're not heavy games, and it's not specific to the game either since I tried 3 completely different games), and at that time I had my X1650 Pro as default in my PC. I noticed the screen went black a few times per hour, which would indicate the ATi driver refreshing if I'm not mistaken. After a while, the system just froze. Couldn't do anything and had to reset (no BSOD either). I restarted, and same thing again.. That happened like 3 more times.. I thought my GPU was giving out, so I ran a few tests, testing for artifacts and checking temperature, but nothing..

After that I decided to uninstall the GPU and take it out, and try my on-board GPU to see if that would make a difference. I downloaded the latest drivers from the AMD website and it all seemed to be going well, but then, after a few hours, the same black screen again.. And after that, BSOD happened. This repeated a few more times, and well, here I am..

A few more things that could be significant:

A:BSOD when playing games

Please uninstall Daemon Tools, it has issues with some Win7 installations.
Then uninstall sptd.sys using this free tool: http://www.duplexsecure.com/faq#remove_64sptd

You have the infamous 2005 version of ASACPI.sys - a known cause of BSOD's on Asus systems. Please visit the Asus website here: http://support.asus.com/download/dow...ge=en-us&os=30
and expand the Utilities section. The 7th item down is the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit" - Download and install that.

Please replace your video drivers by doing the following:
- visit the ATI website and download the DRIVERS ONLY for your video card (they're listed after the entire Catalyst Control Center package).
- uninstall all ATI stuff using Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program
- install the freshly downloaded DRIVERS ONLY package
- monitor for further BSOD's

Several of the errors are STOP 0x116, and all involve your video drivers - so I'd suggest following the steps here: http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...eshooting.html

Finally, update your Creative sound card drivers as they are older (one is from 2008).

I've been getting consistent blue screens every couple hours while playing games since I built my computer.

It only seems to happen when I'm playing games. I get various different reasons, (bad_pool_caller, dxmmm1.sys or something, cant remember the others offhand)
I have a feeling its all related to my graphics card. I've updated the drivers, used driver sweeper to clear out any old ones, updated some outdated drivers manually.
But it just keeps happening. I've attached everything I need... I think, I haven't done anything like this before, so please tell me if there is any other information you need.

Been getting multiple BSOD's while playing games incl. BF4 and Sims 4 (don't ask, lol). Computer usually restarts right after so I've never been able to take a picture of the screen but from what just happened maybe 20 minutes ago, I managed to catch a glimpse of it saying atikmdag.sys causing the BSOD.

Another issue that has been frequently occurring is the screen blacking out while web browsing in Chrome. Once the screen recovers, I get a notifaction saying something like "AMD display driver has stopped responding but has recovered". Event Viewer reveals that this is caused by "display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered". Disabling hardware acceleration fixes this however.

This is on a brand new build that is just over a month old. I'm still not 100% sure if it's due to a faulty card since underclocking and overclocking doesn't seem to have any positive effect.

The problem has been going on for about 2 weeks or so now, it started happening when i installed and starting playing the new Call of Duty. It started with my system freezing up resulting me in having to just physically reboot, then it progressed into blue screens. Now when i play just about any game i can play for about 10-15 minutes then will get hit with the blue screen. I have tried reformatting and replacing my video card, so far no luck.

Hi so my PC has been crashing during games sometimes a few minutes to a few hours in. Half the time it straight crashes with no BSOD and with an absolute horrid crackling sound. The other half of the time it crashes with a BSOD.
 
The latest 2 of my BSODs said the following:
driver_irql_not_less_or_equal (hdaudbus.sys)

system_thread_exception_not_handled (RTKVHD64.sys)
 

In Event Viewer a bugcheck seemed to occur as well for the first time ever:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.  The bugcheck was: 0x0000007e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff800ac295f91, 0xffffd0005c1d9478, 0xffffd0005c1d8c90). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 120515-5125-01
 
Here are my system specs:

During the next week I will be swapping out my hardware (specifically the graphics card) with other devices to know if one particular device is the culprit.
