Preferred Solution: BSOD whilst playing DOTA

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: BSOD whilst playing DOTA

If you are using a program like Ccleaner please stop using it while troubleshooting.
This because programs like Ccleaner remove dump files that are needed to troubleshoot.
Or configure Ccleaner to not remove dump files:


We'll have to wait for another BSOD to occur, if another BSOD occurs just follow the posting instructions again and upload a new zip.

My computer couldnt start after the BSOD so i disassemble and reconect my hd, memory ram. 25% of the time i was able to go to my start up menu desktop, otherwise my computer dont even turn the screen on, i had to press the power button and then press it again until i got lucky and start the windows.

One time i was able to run the BSOD analysis and then it was very dificult to start my computer again. It seems that this problem was getting worst and worst even without doing nothing to affect my windows...

Haven't seen this many BSOD since my old computer and now it's driving me up the wall. Would really appreciate some help in this as I'm not too well versed in diagnosing and solving BSOD. The error only happens during Dota 2 and as seen from my minidump files has occurred way too many times for me to write it off as a once in a blue moon type situation.

Hi guys, as the title states I have been experiencing consistent BSOD every single time I play DOTA 2 now without fail. I had just installed a new SSD a few months back and thought that the game on SSD might in someway be a problem. After removing it completely from my SSD and doing a clean installation of the game on my HDD the problem still occurs. I don't know if it helps but I would always use skype every single time I play the game with my friends. In the earlier days, the blue screen error message would appear longer as it is dumping files. But as it is a continuous occurrence now, the blue screen error message disappears quicker and quicker, leaving me no time to capture what error code was actually shown.

Attached is the DM Log collector from my PC.

Thank you.

I was playing dota 2 while talking with my friend on skype. Nothing out of the ordinary as I had done that several times before. I launched the game using Razer Game Booster. Yesterday I also used ccleaner to clean registries, and I also uninstalled ~60 GB of games and programs, but didn't touch any files relating to steam(the program that hosts dota 2) or dota 2

Also I couldn't get a dxdiag dump via the SF diagnostic tool because of some error.

A:BSOD when playing Dota 2

Ok had a look through your files a couple of things of note:

First please uninstall alchohol 120% this program uses a driver that is known to cause BSODs. Once it is uninstalled please download and run this tool:

DuplexSecure - Downloads

next I notice that you have both McAfee and AVG installed, having multiple AV programs can cause some serious problems uninstall one or the other using their respective uninstall tools:

AVG Removal tool

McAfee removal Tool

Last I notice your Bios is rather old I would check the computer s manufacturers website for updates if there are any.

Was in the middle of a game, and got a BSOD. Computer restarted, and when it came back on I saw in the dialog window that came up that the error was:

BCCode: 3b 0x0000003b

Tried opening up my NVIDIA control panel so I could double check the graphics drivers - then got this error:

"This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information."

Follow up:

I manually downloaded the last driver pack from NVIDIA just in case there was something bad in the newest release of drivers that came out on the 18th. The control panel is working now... but I'm hesitant to test out any games or anything until I find out if there was something more to the BSOD.

Hello!
This is my first time doing this so sorry if any information is missing. When i play Dota 2 the computer often shuts down, restart but nothing is happening, it?s not really a BSOD but the information after says it is. This problem only occurs while playing Dota 2. I have searched for information on millions of forums but cant find any solution to this problem. I have done the regular things:

- Defraggler
- CCleaner
- Reinstall dota
- Uppdate my graphic drivers
- Play on minimal settings in game.
- Clean inside computer for dust.
- I have also reset the computer.
- Also tried a bunch of diffrent stuff that other persons said would work. Steamrelated.

In addition a electronic company tried to solve the problem but they couldnt find anything. I think they did a "stresstest" and so on.

I dont think its the hardware since I can play Battlefield 3 without any issues. I were about to post the error message but it dissapered after doing these BSOD steps to upload file. Would appreciate help!

Hi Dennisingemarss.

A stop 0x116 is a display related BSOD, and I am seeing that the display driver in use is nvidia 314.22 WHQL, which cannot fail at its own.

You have done a lot already, but still try these:

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. Do it two times. During normal usage and during playing DOTA2 for a reasonable time.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

If any component of the laptop is overclocked, revert it back to default settings.

And, if the statement is true ......

Hello Travesh,

Dump file didn't have anything specific to Dota 2. If it's only happening a specific game then it could be the game itself. I saw you have already ran the MemTest86+ and came out clean.

If your Overclocking the processor pleas stop it. Try to contact thier support and see if there is any updates or patches available because seems like it's very common problem with Dota 2.

Hi Sevenforums,

to give a bit of background i have had a few issues with my laptop overheating when playing dota 2 and it would BSOD for about 6 months or so. Last week i was about to start a game (so no chance that it should have been overheating) and then it BSOD and ever since then It will BSOD as soon as I try to load the game.

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the AMD driver over and over again, and trying to run the game of inbuilt Intel Graphics. when i try to load the game with Intel graphics it simply does not load although does not BSOD. I have attached my zip file.

If you could please provide some kind of clarification as to how i can fix this that would be much appreciated!!

Also it seems to be a problem maybe with steam? as i can run other games outside of steam just fine.

Thanks!

Hello, yeahey and welcome to the Forums. I will see if I can help. Could you check your System Specs and make sure they are correct. They say a Desktop, but all of the specs say Laptop. Uou have 2 dump files and both are essentially the same.


Code:
VIDEO_TDR_TIMEOUT_DETECTED (117)
The display driver failed to respond in timely fashion.
(This code can never be used for a real bugcheck.)
Arguments:
Arg1: fffffa8007988010, Optional pointer to internal TDR recovery context (TDR_RECOVERY_CONTEXT).
Arg2: fffff88001daaaf4, The pointer into responsible device driver module (e.g owner tag).
Arg3: 0000000000000000, The secondary driver specific bucketing key.
Arg4: 0000000000000000, Optional internal context dependent data.
The other one is essentially the same other than the code is 117 instead of 117, which are the same. Basically it means you drivers crashed but failed to recover in the allotted time. The Operating System assumes a video failure and shuts down to protect itself. This is a very common stop code for Laptops with switchable graphics. This is your current driver.

No DMP's were included...

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

We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32. To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.

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:

Hey guys,

So I've been having this issue for a couple of years now where I can be playing Dota for any amount of time before my screens suddenly drop out like they've lost connection and begin to flash. My computer will run for a while longer given I can tell when I've got music playing but if I leave it for long enough it will fully crash/bsod.

This is a problem which tends to be bad for 2-3 weeks then it will be fine for a few months before reoccurring again.

I used to have x2 480gtx cards in, I always thought that was the problem so I always used to switch them out and the slots they were in, currently only have the one in. Decided to finally look into the problem a little more for the first time last night, looking at my most recent dmp file, the errors I was getting -

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for win32k.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for win32k.sys
Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+921828 )
I googled the nvlddmkm.sys issue and that seemed to point to a Nividia driver issue. I followed what was suggested online and did a clean install of my graphics card driver just before and as soon as I opened up Dota it crashed, usually it wouldn't happen until I'd connected to a server to start playing a game so if anything, it made it worse...

My video card used to overheat (up to 105C at some cases, but usually below 100C) but the fan was cleaned and now it stays at a reasonable temperature. I'm afraid it might have suffered permanent damage from the heat. Is that consistent with the error I'm getting? (0x00000116)

EDIT: I forgot to add that the BSOD used to happen very occasionally when playing DOTA 2. Then over time they became more common until they happen more often then not now. That's why I think it might be heat damage.

A:BSOD When Playing Dota 2

Hello kotoran.

The BSODs you uploaded are showing stop 0x116, that indicates display/graphics related BSODs.

It may be caused by some elements like an incompetent graphics driver, failing GPU, overheating, dust allocation, and insufficient power supply, mainly.

In that case, I would suggest you to do the following.

For the graphics driver, check the version of the driver in device manager.
Right click on my computer > choose manage.
In the resulting window, click on "device management" in the left pane.
Expand the "display Drivers" by clicking the triangle in front of it. It will show you Raedon HD 4800.
Right click and choose property.
Click on the driver tab of the property window.
Take a screenshot and upload it here.
Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

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.

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. Also set the BIOS to default, too.
How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS)

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

Also let us know about the wattage of the PSU.

I attached my MSINFO32 file, can you please resolve the very same issue for me.

I am using a HP dv6-3150se, so I do not know how to unplug RAM modules or stuff. -_-

Sorry for bumping up an old thread, but it seems this is the exact problem I am currently facing.

Thanks.

Okay, so to add further details.

I experienced BSOD for the first time on 1st May, I installed 13.2 Beta version of Video driver a month back or so (I play dota2 daily). I kept playing and it worked fine. Sometimes, Dota2 would just close suddenly. Now, from yesterday it started giving me loads of BSODs time to time. Today, I installed ATi 14.4 (not beta version), the match won't even start or if it starts, it'll hardly last 2-3 minutes before the BSOD pops in.

BSOD details:

Firstly I read the error to be IRQL_not_less_or_equal something, I read that it might be due to recently drivers and stuff so I restored my PC to 30th April.

Now I am having BSOD which states page_fault_in_nonpaged_area. I have reverted to my earliest driver already.

A:BSOD while playing DOTA 2

And here is the proper way to report a BSOD. Sorry, I came across the instructions after posting.

Hello VOID730.

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



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

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



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

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



   Tip

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

With DV enabled, use the computer normally, and try to do the most crash prone actions as play DOTA2 and other online games.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight, per RAM module per slot.

I have tried to fix this BSOD error several times by factory resetting my computer (its an alienware and alienware re-spawn makes it very easy to factory reset computer). This leaves me thinking that its a hardware issue but I don't think its my graphics card because I have run FurMark for over 30 mins. Also just recently when the BSODS started happening I have to turn my comp on and off several times before it lets me actually login to my comp. It will just generally start up to a black screen.
