Headers missing from (seemingly) random few pages in document

Q: Headers missing from (seemingly) random few pages in document

Hello,

I'm typesetting a dictionary in Word 2003. I've got headers set up for different odd and even, and different first page, with the first page of each letter beginning a new section. I'm using stylerefs to put the headers on each page and mostly it's listing these fine, but in some headers, only the page number is showing up (it's in a text box, separately) but not the text for the header - it's missing on two pages (a consecutive odd and even page) here and there, but I can't work out why. All the headers are linked to the previous and mostly are coming out fine, and i can't find any errant section breaks, I am at a loss!

Any help or advice is very much appreciated! Thank you!

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.)

So I know this should be very easy. I have a 285-page novel manuscript I'm formatting for submission. I have page numbers that start on the 3rd actual page, which is where Chapter 1 begins. I have a header but it only appears on those first two pages; it stops before Chapter 1. How do I have the header appear on every page of the doc? I googled it but it's confusing....it took awhile to get the page numbering right, because I wanted it to start where it does....I'm afraid if I mess with the header as it is, I'm in for more frustration. A simple step-by-step would be appreciated. Thanks!

I've been plagued by odd problems since making this custom build about a month ago, but the latest is the increasing frequency of BSODs. They never occur at load (gaming with high end specs), but often occur at shutdown (forcing a restart before I can then actually shut down). I normally boot into windows in 8-10 seconds (SSD) but the latest post-BSOD boot took about five minutes from typing my password into the login screen to where my desktop popped up. A subsequent reboot was at normal speed. The memory dumps always include the NT OS kernel, but then also some other driver (different each time), which I suspect just happens to be the one trying to run at the time of the error.

Things I've tested:
Temperatures (didn't really suspect them in the first place, but I'm running cool)
Memory (Both the native Windows test and memtest found no issues)
Hard drives (chkdsk came back clean)

All drivers are up to date, although the uploaded report might show an older version of my sound card driver, as I just reinstalled it at the behest of windows action center (which didn't make the notification go away, mind).

I'm hoping someone wiser than I can make sense of this, because it all seems so random to me. Thanks in advance to whoever that is.

I'm afraid we may very well be dealing with CPU failure here. A good majority of your crashdumps report very unusual behavior from the CPU, and one especially is evident of CPU problems when the crash is caused by a bad memory reference despite the fact that the instruction opcode that triggered it doesn't even attempt to touch memory!

Just to be sure, if you have your system overclocked in any way at all, please reset all of it to factory defaults. Uninstall all software that came with your motherboard, including any monitoring or overclocking software. Update the drivers for your video card, your motherboard and all its components and your BIOS, since everything I've found is well over a year old.

If none of that resolves your issue, then it's definitely time to start looking for a replacement CPU. The only other hardware I could see that might even remotely have a chance of causing this is the motherboard, but it's very seldom. Understand also that if you've inadvertently had your CPU running hot over extended periods of time, it will cause permanent damage that would simply slay any chance of using it reliably.

Analysts:

Pretty much all of them are odd in that the bugcheck claims one memory address is addressed wrong yet another completely different one is referred too by the faulting IP. However a couple, like this one (2nd to oldest) is a good example of some serious CPU problems:

I've been using Foobar2000 as a music player for a while now, but one day it randomly capsized and was completely glitched out. I reinstalled it along with all the addons and themes I had set it up with, but I've got one last problem. In my playlist, there are no headers to separate artists/albums. It's just one hellalong list of songs. It's not the mp3 tags in the songs, because I had loaded these same songs before and it worked fine. I've looked pretty much all over the internets, and have yet to find the answer.

I'm using PanelsUI v13.something, and FoFR v0.9

Installed a fresh version of windows 7 last May when I added a new SSD. About two months later started getting BSOD when I played Civ 5. Thought the game was the problem, uninstalled but the problem persists. Thought the SSD was the problem, but updated firmware and did memory diagnostics and no issue. It comes at seemingly random times and doesnt correlate with any particular action on my part.

? OS - Windows 7
? x64
? Full Retail OS
? Fresh Install Last May when I added an SSD

A:Seemingly Random BSOD

Hi -

I believe the problem is likely your SSD.

I only ran the 11 dumps going back to 26 November 2012.


Code:
FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: X64_0x7a_c000009d_nt!_??_::FNODOBFM::_string_+50040
0x7a (0xc000009d,,,) = kernel code from the page file could not be read into memory;

Exception code 0xc000009d = device not connected = indicates defective or loose cabling, termination, or that the controller does not see the hard disk


Code:
FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: X64_0xF4_IOERR_IMAGE_csrss.exe

0xf4 = process critical to Windows suddenly terminated - caused by I/O error

Other bugchecks included 0x1a = memory management error

Also, 0xc0000005 exceptions noted = memory access violation

RAM is of course a possibility, but the SSD seems more likely to be the issue.

This driver was named in another dump & should be updated -

Code:
AsrAppCharger.sys Fri Jun 11 02:37:12 2010 (4C11D998)
http://www.sysnative.com/drivers/dri...AppCharger.sys

The dumps that name Microsoft networking related OS drivers like netio.sys are likely being cause by Norton's firewall.

I suggest removal of NIS with removal tool - http://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN146

Reboot upon completion. Install Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE)

I am running the 7100 64 bit version. I have a XFX 9600GSO installed, with the latest drivers from the nvidia website. During normal use, i.e. surfing the web, randomly the GPU will lose connectivity/use for a second, and then regain it. This also happens during any games I play, except that when it happens in-game or during watching a movie, the computer freezes and requires a hard-restart.

I have run memtest to see if it is a problem linked to bad ram, i have used several older drivers from nvidia, and the one from windows update.

Any ideas would be much appreciated, as anything that requires heavy graphics use seems to freeze the computer.

Windows XP
A couple of nights ago, out of the blue, my computer started locking up. It's a hard prblem to explain, partly because its effects aren't always consistent, so I'll just give a few examples:

I had just turned on my computer within the last 5 minutes. I then went online (using firefox) to watch a streaming video. I am able to get a few minutes in before the video suddenly halted; the picture had stopped but the sound kept repeating the same tenth of a second, like a .1 second sound file played on repeat mode if that helps you picture it. The system clock had stopped as well. I have a keyboard with an LCD screen that shows the same time as my computer (logitech g15 gaming keyboard, the original one), and it also freezes. I had fullscreen mode enabled so the only thing I could see was the video. I was able to disable the video's fullscreen mode by hitting the escape button. I had two windows of firefox open (one was the video and the other was just a webpage) and after disabling fullscreen the frozen video was overlayed onto the entirety of both windows and my background. In other words the image from the frozen video stayed on my screen even after hitting escape, but now I could see the task bar and the outlines of the two windows (I can't remember if I could see the icons on my desktop or not or if one of the windows were covering them). I forgot to mention I still am able to move my cursor (the ability to move my cursor and the clock freez... Read more

Where to start...

Ever since I replaced a 2GHz P4 CPU with a 3.06GHz P4 CPU, my computer has started occasionally freezing up randomly. Some days it won't freeze up, other days it will; sometimes not long after starting up, sometimes after hours of normal use. Sometimes when playing a video or music, sometimes when playing a game, sometimes when downloading/surfing, and other times when I've left it idle, I'll return to find it frozen up.

By frozen up I mean, the image on the monitor stuck as it was, if I was playing music, it stutters for a split second then cuts out. Fans and such continue running inside the case, and there are no irregular noises from hard drives.

I've dusted the inside of the case; fitted an extra chassis fan, cleaned out the CPU fan... the CPU idles at about 35 degrees C and never gets above 55 even when running at 100% for >10 minutes...

I've replaced the old 300W PSU the system was built with, with a new 500W one, so PSU should be no problem... The processor, video card, DVD drives, power supply, RAM and motherboard have all been replaced very recently.

The fact that this started happening shortly after putting the faster processor in points to the processor being the problem, but if so, why can't I make it freeze-up under a stress/stability/torture test? I have no control over when it will do it at all... It copes with the toughest tests I throw at it, then freezes up at random when I'm checking emails or som... Read more

Hello,

My Laptop has been crashing at what seems to be random times for a few months now. Most of the time I will return to my laptop, which was sitting idle, to find that it has crashed, and restarted. It has crashed while gaming, watching movies, photo editing, or just sitting idle. Sometimes I get a BSOD, other times it just goes black and restarts.

System came with Windows 7 from Dell, but I have done a full reformat of the hard drive and reinstalled via the Dell provided system restore DVD after getting a nasty virus 6 months ago. The system is about 1.5 years old, with no known issues other than the random crashes.

After reading other posts, I noticed that Daemon Tools, and Avast seemed to pop up quite a bit as problem programs. I just removed both of these programs, but I am not sure if that is the root of the problem. Thanks for you time.

Hello. I was directed to go here with my problem by wrench on the building forum after a little bit of trying to work on this, from over in this thread. Basically we ended up seeing a drop on the 12v line and tried a new PSU to see if that would handle it,. but the BSoD's continued. A little under a year ago now I put together the first PC I've built, and surprisingly it worked very smoothly. However, a few months ago, say mid-January maybe, I started encountering random BSoD's. They started off not too bad at first, maybe one or two every day or two, but they've become significantly worse. I tend to see multiples of BSoD's every day, sometimes while booting Windows, and even the rare, but occasional failure to POST.

The BSoD's seem to be random. I've probably written down ten or fifteen different error messages at this point(PAGE_FAULT_ERROR, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL(probably the most common) System tried to reference a page it did not have access too, USB_BUGCODE etc.),. They occur randomly as well. Sometimes I can run a high stress game like a tweaked Oblivion for hours, other times the system can be idling for only a few minutes and I'll get a BSoD. Because of this I do not believe it is a temperature issue (that and my system is very well ventilated). I can't seem to do anything to willfully reproduce them.

I've since been working for the past few months attempting to diagnose my problem. I've reformatted the hard drive twice by now, so I think I can safely... Read more

JHi -

Thank you for the files - and being prepared.

You mentioned SP1 not in - are you having SP1 installation problems? I'd like to get SP1 in b/c you have Vista 2006 drivers running with device drivers from 2008/ 2009 written with SP1 in mind/ This in itself can be an unnecessary disruption and can cause BSODs that lead us away from the real cause.

Hey all, I've got problems with reoccuring BSOD's so I hoped I could find some help here as I don't know what to do anymore.
I'll try to make this post as detailed and clear as possible.
The problem:
I've started getting BSOD's at seemingly random times and I do not know what's causing this.
BSOD's usually occur when I'm gaming but that could be a coincidence as I pretty much only game when my PC is on.
Most BSOD's happened while playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive but after tweaking some game settings it has no longer occured.
I've had a BSOD happen right when I clicked restart now as I wanted to fix a problem with Arma 2 (DayZ).
What I've tried:
Uninstalled Hola, this was (one of?) the first BSOD's and I didn't need Hola anymore so I just removed it, sadly enough BSOD's kept coming.
Used Driver Verifier which leaded to the multiple bluescreens (always pointing to HIDclass.sys) of which only 2 got a dump, at 26/07/2013.
Using DV made me go into a constant loop of BSOD'ing at "Starting Windows" until I disabled DV in Safe Mode.
Ran Memtest86+ 4.20, 3 passes, no errors.
Ran chkdsk /f on both my HDD and SSD, no errors.
Useful(?) information:
The day the first BSOD happened (19/7) I did not install anything but my Adobe Flash Player updated to 11.8.800.94
The next 4 BSOD's all occured on 22/7, all of them happened while playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in less than 15 minutes of gametime.
I have since tried a lot of things as I thought the problem was... Read more

Hi,
I've been experiencing BSODs for a couple of months, but they seem to be getting more frequent recently. It's mostly when I'm running several programs (but not games), but other than that I haven't noticed anything particular. Sorry not to be more specific - I'd be really grateful for any help, and please let me know if you need any further info. Thanks a lot!

Hi folks, somewhat tech-literate user looking for assistance with an issue that's mystifying me. I have a machine running Win7, around 6-8 months old. home-build from components, purchased from reputable UK suppliers and the Mobo came with memory and processor already fitted and tested. I've experienced random rebooting of the machine which doesn't appear to follow any pattern that I'd associate with overheating etc, and the strange thing is that it also appears to be when 'load' on the system is at its lightest.

I run some higher end gaming software, such as Guild Wars 2, Far Cry 3, X-Com etc - and I can play these for hours on end with little or no problem (in the last 6 months I've maybe had 3-4 resets/reboots occur when gaming), however when simply on my desktop they're more prevalent. Often this may occur when putting the machine into Sleep or restoring from Sleep, but also during general usage such as browsing the net, backing up folders, and can even occur when just standing idle. There seems to be no time trigger involved, can be as soon as I start the machine up, or after several minutes/hours.

The event viewer shows the following as the usual entry following such an incident:

A fatal hardware error has occurred.

Component: AMD Northbridge
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: 25
Processor ID: 0

I also see the following yellow-flagged event around the same areas in the log:

Hello!
I recently started experiencing a number of odd BSODs, that began appearing just after I reinstalled my OS.
The first error that I received was related to the atikmdag.sys driver file, and Ive had it before, in my previous OS install; turning off the system suspend function in the power management options fixed it both then and now.
Second error was related to the xEngine.exe process and happened as I was exiting Stalker CoP Misery 2.1 Beta mod, which apparently is prone to crashing some systems, so that might have been just that.
The two errors that concern me most are those related to win32k.sys and both seem to be tied with the dwm.exe process. First time I had this error was during the shutdown phase, the system hanged at the shutting down... screen, the screen turned black and this error appeared, sometime at the end of last week.

I've attached the minidumps and other data in the zip attachment. I've included two mini dumps, one was yesterday when I had avast antivirus installed. I have now replaced with Microsoft Security Essentials as I read avast could cause issues. It was to no avail, still BSODs.

We've been seeing a lot of issues with SSD's and Intel mobo/chipsets. I suggest that you get the latest firmware updates for your SSD from the SSD manufacturer's website - and that you must have the absolute latest RST (Rapid Storage Technology) drivers from the Intel Download Center (FYI - RST is the new name for the Matrix Storage Manager): http://downloadcenter.intel.com
I also suggest the latest chipset drivers from the Intel Download Center.

It's a part of your motherboard's chipset drivers - so please update them ASAP (from the Intel Download Center). FYI - your chipset is listed as the P67 Express chipset.

Temporarily remove ZoneAlarm - that'll tell you if it's causing the BSOD's. Use the Windows Firewall for testing. If you must have finer control, try this free utility: Windows7FirewallControl : Sphinx Software

Uninstall MSI Afterburner - it has known issues with some Win7 systems.

I'm getting a BSOD, and it seems totally random. I can boot up fine, and the BSOD/reboot will occur anywhere from a few minutes later to an hour or more, and it doesn't happen during identical activities.

before the reboots, I have seen a few different codes on the various BSOD's:
STOP Error 0x0000003B: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
STOP Error 0x00000025: NPFS_FILE_SYSTEM
there were one or two others I think, but I missed the codes. I'll pay more attention the next time it happens.

This is what I believe to be the inciting incident: I downloaded an archive, and when I decompressed it, it contained a folder and within that was another folder, and another, and another, etc etc. When I tried to delete it later, Windows said the filename was too long and it could not be deleted. I rebooted into Safe Mode and deleted it fine. When I came back into Normal Mode, the BSOD's started occurring.

So far I have...
-run chkdsk, which found 1 orphan file and recovered it. No disk errors. I
-have run MalwareBytes, which found nothing.
-I ran a virus check with Avira, which found nothing.
-ran Windows Defender, which found nothing.
-I If I try the Check for Errors button in the hard drive properties, I get a BSOD.

CBS.log has strange errors in it - we may have to get another tech in to have a look at it (later on).

Android Composite ADB Interface has configuration issues. Please uninstall the Android stuff from your system. If you wish to reinstall it, please download a fresh copy.

Only 14% free space on the D: drive - 15% free is the recommended limit.

Hello,

For quite some time now I have had to put up with numerous and often random BSOD errors.

I have done memory and hard drive checks with multiple passes and all appear to be okay.

I have ensured all data cables are connected properly and nothing is loose, again all seems to be okay.

For a while I thought Google Chrome was causing this error, as since adding a new SSD (BSOD occurred before this) and reformatting everything with Windows 7 64-bit now installed on the SSD I kept getting "Oops" errors in Chrome forcing me to get rid of it and revert to IE. However this has not stopped the BSODs.

BSOD can and has occurred when doing the following: Closing an application, either a game or even Chrome (yet to BSOD in IE). I have had BSOD errors while uploading files to YouTube, again mostly with Chrome. I used to get BSOD errors when playing Total War Rome 2, but that started CTDing instead after 5 minutes of gameplay and has now been temporarily removed from my PC.

I have also recently received three of the following crashes (how related they are I don't know) which is when my PC freezes, curser can still be moved around but nothing else response. Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up my Task Manager also does not work.

I have attached two mini-dump files to assist.

Much appreciated

This issue has been frustrating me for a while now and after having done a fair bit of research into possible causes I'm genuinely stumped.

I upgraded to Vista from XP just over a year ago and everything ran swimmingly at first. At some point between then and now applications started to freeze. What I thought was odd was that the cursor would remain active until something was clicked on, whilst the image in the open window would freeze and the sound looped. Of course the only way to exit this was by cutting the power and rebooting.

After this lock up had occurred once it seemed the same thing would happen 5 or 10 mins after restarting, and it got into a vicious loop. This started happening more than once a day and frustratingly there was never an error message to give a clue as to what was causing it, nor did the problem start occurring after a significant change to the system.

I performed the basic system checks, scanned for viruses/spyware, updated drivers checked both my hard discs for continuity and still the problem occured. Finally I reformatted everything and reinstalled Vista, knowing that when I first installed it everything worked fine.

Of course, this didn't fix the problem. Games that my computer had handled easily were suddenly crashing after a few minutes without any warning, no lag or glitches. I started to see a vague pattern emerging - it always seemed to lock up if there was sound coming out. The frequency of the crashes also depended on what ... Read more

While I doubt it has much significance, it won't hurt to run a hard drive diagnostic; do the Short and Long DSTs in SeaTools.

Hello. A little under a year ago now I put together the first PC I've built, and surprisingly it worked very smoothly. However, a few months ago, say mid-January maybe, I started encountering random BSoD's, immediately after a driver update for a now uninstalled and removed Creative sound card (and it's been several reformats since then as well). They started off not too bad at first, maybe one or two every day or two, but they've become significantly worse. I tend to see multiples of BSoD's every day, sometimes while booting Windows, and even the rare, but occasional failure to POST.

The BSoD's seem to be random. I've probably written down ten or fifteen different error messages at this point(PAGE_FAULT_ERROR, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL(probably the most common) System tried to reference a page it did not have access too, USB_BUGCODE etc.),. They occur randomly as well. Sometimes I can run a high stress game like a tweaked Oblivion for hours, other times the system can be idling for only a few minutes and I'll get a BSoD. Because of this I do not believe it is a temperature issue (that and my system is very well ventilated. I've also since monitored the temps with CPU-ID and they seem to stay pretty good). I can't seem to do anything to willfully reproduce them.

I've since been working for the past few months attempting to diagnose my problem. I've reformatted the hard drive twice by now, so I think I can safely say i... Read more

Hello all thank you for reading.

My pc is a custom make done for me by a company called, Altex. Two of the drives in it are from the previous machine. I got the pc in August of 2013 and pretty much had issues from the start. At least once during a seven day period while the pc was sitting idle it would freeze.

No BSOD, no error messages just a frozen screen and keyboard. This was a nonstop issue till late December, then while checking out the flight bay for Star Citizen, I noticed the machines fans making quite a good amount of noise. After getting out of the demo my pc began a new and wonderous behavior. Freezing every few hours.

At that time I tried just about everything I could think of, system restore did nothing. I un-installed recently installed programs, I installed new video drivers. I finally got the idea to do selective startup using msconfig, making sure to allow start up of programs I knew I would need, IE: Trillian, Steam and a few others, then see what the machine would do. Crashing problems went away.. so I went back into msconfig and made one slight change, I added all of the drivers and programs for my video card to startup, this included the Catalyst Control Center and like magic... the pc started freezing again. So I uninstalled all that tripe and manually installed the video drivers. No more frequent freezes, I return msconfig to normal startup and I'm back on the once a week schedule of freezes for my pc.

I had recently re-installed Windows a couple of days ago (in the hopes that it would resolve the BSODs) but obviously, that didn't take care of it. Would that indicate a hardware problem?

I would appreciate any help. Let me know what additional information/steps may be needed.

Hello,
I have been experiencing several BSOD's while doing pretty much anything on my computer.
The last few errors were:
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (win32k.sys)
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (dxgmms1.sys)
SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (win32k.sys)

There were more, but I can't remember the name of the errors. The most common one is the SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, and almost all involve win32k.sys.

In all the searching I've done the only case that seems to be similar to mine was a problem with AMD drivers around a year ago, it was patched by MS, and I'm using an Nvidia card. It's likely driver related, but I've reinstalled the Nvidia drivers several times and there has been no change.

By random, I mean I can not, for the life of me, see any pattern at all. The computer could be idle with nothing but background stuff running and it will still freeze.

i think its related to:

b: some sort of software confllict, specifically trillian i think? although i just got the new patch that fixes crashes..

c: something to do with my motherboard overclock AI?

Hey,

So I bought my Lenovo Ideapad Y580 back in December 2012. It was fine for the first month but around mid
January I started to get these random BSODs, they would happen when I played Civilization V, and also on start-up right before the Windows loading screen would appear.

I initially thought the new Nvidia 310.90 drivers were the cause, but after rolling them back, I still got the BSODs, again at startup. I have re-installed windows through Lenovo's one key recovery and I still receive the BSOD's, the most recent one occurred on February 1, 2013 at around 3:30 while I was watching YouTube videos on.

I'm not too sure what it is and I would very much like to know; I'm beginning to think it is a hardware issue.

Pardon the delay in response.

We're most likely seeing the result of a driver playing foul. Before we go further, we'll need you to turn on Driver Verifier and permit your system to crash some more. Hopefully you'll end up seeing new crash error codes that have VERIFIER or something similar in the name. If that's the case, then DV managed to catch the culprit.

If you end up having it crash at startup, it means a driver that's loaded at Windows startup is causing the problem. You can get things running again by going into Safe Mode and deactivating DV from there. Send any crashes our way.

Hey everyone,

Not sure what's going on, but I've had a few BSODs. As far as I can tell, I haven't noticed any one thing I'm doing at the time of the crashes. I ran Memtest 86+ for 17 passes with no errors, and chkdsk came back fine. Core Temps says that, at my highest, I'm running about 40 C, which shouldn't be a problem. I've attached my dmp files, however there are a few in there from before when all my MoBo drivers had been installed/updated (I'd go with anything after 10/19 as being a crash with all the updated drivers, etc). Unfortunately, I cannot recall how to automatically load in the system specs (and I can't seem to find the guide). Please let me know if there is anything else you need. Thanks!

A:Seemingly Random BSODs

And of course, as soon as I say it seems the BSODs went down, I had a spit of them one after the other. They all seemed to happen after the sound started to, well, for lack of better term, honking feedback at me. There was also an instance after a crasher where everything in windows explorer was pixelated (login screen entirely, and task bar/desktop icons on the desktop mode. Not sure if this helps any more or not either, but after each crash, the clock seemed to reset to 3:10 am on 10/21. I've uploaded an updated diagnostics file.
