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

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?

Hi, this one may be a challenge...
I'm fixing a friends computer that seemingly(but actually isnt imo) resetting itself. After trying to solve the problem i decided an xp reinstall was the best way to go, so thats what i did. When i managed to get a fresh install the problem persisted, leading me to think this was caused by software problems, yet its a fresh good xp install. So i'll tell you more about exactly whats happening and what ive tried to diagnose the problem. The computer almost always resets inside windows, it WILL always restart in normal mode if i try to open event viewer, so i cant see any error logs. So naturally at first i was thinking over-heating but a check of the bios said otherwise, temps were all good, so then i thought PS issue, all voltages are well within spec, plus i swapped his PS out for my Antec 380 watt, which never made a difference. I tried unplugging all components except ram, kb, mouse and monitor, no change. I tried swapping the ram with known good ram, still reset when i ran ertain programs(event viewer). Took the HDD out put it in my comp, installed xp fine, put it back in his, same probs. Removed cmos battery, put it back in, no change. I did btw have no check in "?utomatically restart comp on error" I ran a virus and spyware scan, found nothing.
Does anyone have any other suggestions/options?

A:Seemingly random restarts

Edit: The computer also "resets" when i download and install spybot. It happens at the last of the installation screen, when theres the option to "run spybot now" when i click "ok" as well.

The 5 most recent are related to sptd.sys. You need to remove that before we can get to the underlying cause (probably scsiport.sys)

Please remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp, called sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure - Downloads DuplexSecure - FAQ

when you're done you can use this Freeware:

I'm not sure how much more information I could have put into the title, so sorry if it's insufficient.

The problem started the day I built my computer, which was the 4th of December, 2014.

The first BSOD I encountered was when I shut down my computer for the first time, after it had 'shut down', it came up. There were no more problems until a while later, a couple days, at which point I had installed a graphics card(there was no graphics card when the first BSOD occurred), and it probably happened when I tried to launch CS:GO.

Since then, I have encountered 10 more BSODs, including today, and they have all been seemingly random, with nothing in common between them all, and I can't remember what I was doing during any of them except the first two and the last one(which occurred when I was just literally reading a text file in notepad.)

This is my build on pcpartpicker, minus the hard drives because I got them out of an old computer and can't find them anywhere to get information on.

I did try uninstalling AMD graphics drivers and software after I installed my graphics card, because I thought maybe they were conflicting. I thought that had helped, because I went without a BSOD for 13 days, until the 29th of December.

They all showed that it was something with 'win32k.sys', and looking this up on google has gotten me nowhere.

This is basically my last resort. It doesn't really effect my computer as far as I can tell, and it happens so far apart from eacho... Read more

I have just built this computer and now i'm getting random BSODs. These are all fresh components except of a recycled video card. I've installed all motherboard drivers except for jmicron jmb36x driver which causes problems with my CD-Drive.

Anyways these BSODs happen about 3 times a week, mostly when I'm not around.

One thing to note is i’m running my ram at 1333mhz freq rather than 1600mhz as this was the auto-setting for my AMD Phenom II 965, the timings for this speed are looser than the timings for 1600mhz according to SPD which I found odd.

Also on the Ripjaw's packaging it says "designed for core i5 or i7 CPUs" most people don't seem to have any problems running them with AMD however.

Hello everyone

I've just installed a fresh copy of windows 7 onto my ssd, all updates are installed and up to date.
My screen will go blank (no signal) and it sounds like its doing a power cycle (the fans speed up a little) then it just hangs at a blank screen. This happens randomy 3 or 4 times in a row or not at all for days. It seems to only happen if I'm browsing the web or if the system is idle. Not witnessed it happening whilst the system is being stressed. I've ran all the usual stress tests and they all passed with acceptable temperatures. I ran Memtest overnight and managed 10 passes but turning system off. Blue Screen View software isn't showing any dump files to analyse yet the dm log collector showed 1 dmp file which was access denied (tried running as admin to no effect) I've exhaused my limited knowledge and am at a loss.

Hope you can help

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

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

Hi, I have an old laptop which has been suffering from sporadic BSODs for about a year. Sometimes it would BSOD after a few minutes of being logged in - before I had even opened any programs (except those that launched at startup). I reset the computer to factory settings on the 26-27/7/11, and reinstalled only a few programs (of which I have a list if required). Computer details below.
OS - Vista SP2
x86
original OS - Vista
OS is OEM I believe (Vista home premium if it helps)
The hardware is about 4 years old
CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T7250 @2.00GHz 2.00GHz (don't know how much of that you need either)
Video Card - NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
Power Supply - Dell 65W 19.5V 3.34A

The standard BSOD files are attached. The last two BSODs occurred whilst I was running Driver Verifier.
If anyone can shed any light on my problem (apart from "If this was a human being, I'd shoot it in the face") I'd be very grateful.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Guys, I've recently upgraded my computer in the past half year or so, new cpu, motherboard, RAM, PSU. I just got a new hard drive about a month ago. Well, I had some problems after the upgrading, so I reinstalled Windows 7 a few weeks ago. Since then, my computer freezes when it's idling, and I get random blue screens when I'm doing stuff. I get about two freezes a day, and a blue screen about every other. Here's the report I got yesterday.

The dump files point to hardware problems. The second dmp gives a stop error code of 124.

The first dmp has an error code of D1

STOP 0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Usual causes: Device driver

This dmp points to RTL85n64.sys as the cause. This is a Realtek 8180/8185 Wireless Device driver. This driver may or may not be the actual cause. It could be affected by something else.

For a while I've been having some seemingly random BSODs with my new Win7 Hope Premium install. I did have a severe problem with them a while ago but a reformat seemed to help. Unfortunately BSODs seem to have been returned albeit not as bad as with my previous installation (I guess it is a driver or hardware problem). I have to idea how to tackle this problem so any help is appreciated.

Basic info:
Windows 7 Home Premium x64. OEM but bought and installed by myself. Hardware could be approx. 6 months old. Installation age could be about 3 months or so, not sure about this.

I have attached the necessary info files as noted in the sticky.

Hardware specs are as follows:
AMD Phenom II x4 965

Corsair 500W PSU

No overclocks.

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.

This has been happening for about a week now (I've been trying things and just can't get it to stop). My computer (seemingly at random), restarts itself.

When Windows (XP), comes back up, I get the box "The system has recovered from a serious error." I click Send Error Report. It says something about not knowing what the specific problem is, but that it could be because of a device driver.

When searching on a search engine with my symptoms, the common theme for the problem seems to be device drivers as well. So, that was what I tried to fix. I updated my sound and video card drivers. I downloaded software (Driver Genius), which suggests driver upgrades...and upgraded all the suggestions. I've gone into control panel and turned off audio hardware acceleration. Nothing works.

The restarts can happen when I'm watching video and surfing the web, it always happens at least once while I'm sleeping and the computer is doing essentially nothing. It isn't a temp issue because SpeedFan tells me my comp temperature at all times (and as mentioned, it will restart in the middle of the night when nothing is happening).

I read on another forum about how using minidump files so I attached 2 from crashes just this morning.

Can anyone help me? Can you suggest what I can try next? Can you direct me to some information I can give that will help you help me? Thanks for any advice.

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.

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. You'll be experiencing performance issues because of this - and it will get worse as the free space decreases (Windows does stuff with the free space in the background). Delete/move some stuff to keep the system running smoothly.

The WER section of MSINFO32 blames your Asus Data Security Manager software and your Intel wireless software. Please:
- download a fresh copy of the Asus Data Security Manager software (if you want to reinstall it) from the Asus website
- download a fresh copy of the Intel wireless software from http://downloadcenter.intel.com
- uninstall both programs from your system.
- install the Intel wireless stuff (and the Data Security stuff if so desired).

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).

A:Seemingly random crashes: Please Help!?

A device driver can be the current version and still be corrupted.There are many, many device drivers on your system - and finding the right one can be a challenge.And sometimes you can reinstall the correct one - and still not fix it (because some drivers leave traces behind when they're uninstalled).So that's where the minidump files (they are one form of a memory dump file) come in handy. An analysis of them may help - but the exact description of the error message will help also. If you don't have it handy don't worry - it's stored in the memory dump files.So, let's move onto the analysis of the memory dump files. Here's a draft of how to analyze them. It may seem intimidating, but just follow through it step-by-step and it'll work out for you. If you've got any questions, just post back and ask - and we'll answer them the best that we can.INTRODUCTION: A memory dump is what happens when Windows crashes. The memory is dumped into the pagefile and saved for the next reboot. Once Windows reboots, it reclaims the memory dump data from the pagefile and saves it to a file (usually ending in .dmp). Analyzing these dump files can help to figure out what's causing your system to crash. While they don't offer a "sure" fix, they provide clues to the cause of the crash so that we can work on fixing them. In my experience most system crashes are caused by faulty/corrupted drivers, malware, or hardware failures (in that order).Step 1: The first thing to do when your system... Read more

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.

The display does nothing, the mouse cursor does not move, the LCD on my keyboard stops, including the seconds on the clock. It completely freezes. 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.

Hello lads, saw the quality of tech support here so went ahead and got an account to post.

I recently upgraded my PC from Windows 7 32 Bit, to 64 and added 2x4GB stick of RAM and a new graphics card, a GTX560TI. Now since then, some weird things have been happening to my PC, for one, my mouse cursor doesn't show up in one game, another is when something is installing the left and right mouse buttons cease to work and finally, the driver software (Razer Synapse 2.0) for my mouse installs but I can't actually open it, just invisible and when I right click the icon it crashes.

Most importantly, my PC BSoDs at random, or so I thought. After noticing a bunch of my errors were mouse related I went searching using the diagnostic tool if it was the cause of my crashes and what I found out was a piece of software or a drive called: ntoskrnl.exe seems to be the only file listed as the problem.

I then started to get worried that maybe my GFX card was messed up, or the two different types of RAM were not working together as now I have 4 sticks of RAM, 2x2GB sticks and 2x4GB sticks of two different types.
EDIT: Just to add, forgot about it, Chrome seems to hang up or the java application or any embedded videos crash and don't work and it has started to hang my whole system, even when I clicked edit on this post it caused chrome to hang as well as my whole PC for a few seconds.

I started having BSOD issues with this PC some months back, when I was using an ATI card that was a bit behind the times. I thought it was a faulty graphics card causing it, so I swapped it out with a spare I had and that seemed to fix the issue - no more BSOD boot loops. I recently (just before Christmas) changed that out to a new nVidia 970GTX, but before too long I ran into a few blue screen errors. These would only happen at random. Four so far since the new card - two while browsing the web, one right after quitting Counterstrike Global Offensive (while clicking something in Chrome) and one not log after I got the Win7 login prompt after the BSOD mentioned just prior.

Attached are the files generated by the DM Log tool. A quick perusal shows several old DMP files. I had many many issues with the old ATI card that (seemingly) started it all.

Another point of data: Last night, my mouse suddenly stop responding, and Windows put out the "hardware disconnected" sound. As I got down to check it out, I moved it to another port, but the whole system was locked up by the time I could test it. Took a bit for it to come back online after a reboot, as well. Not sure if that's something, or just a fluke.

I have updated the video card's drivers, but that didn't help.

Hope you guys can help; I'm a decent enough troubleshooter, but I've never been very good at piecing together dmp files - hopefully I'll learn something.

Thanks!

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.

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)

System files show that Windows was installed -

My month old desktop has been either freezing/locking up forcing me to do a hard reboot, or just restarting completely on its own since I got it. Only getting the BSODs since I changed the system to not restart automatically. Before that it was just a poof with no explanation. I say random because sometimes it can go several hours or even a day without any restarts. It seems to be happening once or twice a day on average though. Strangely enough it happens most of the time when the computer is completely idle.

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.

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.
Second time I received this error was last night, after exiting BiA: Hell's Highway; I left a Youtube video paused while I was playing and upon resuming it, the screen turned black and again, the same error appeared.

RELEVANCY SCORE 51.6

Hey guys/girls...I have been having random blue screens for about an hour after i start the pc everyday...after that all is well.

PC Specs are as follows:
~Acer X1700
~Windows 7 Professional(32 Bit) SP1
~4GB RAM(only reading 3GB cause of 32 Bit...need to reinstall at some point.)
~Nvidia GeForce G100

BSoD's are as follows(been a few different ones):
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
BAD_POOL_HEADER
MEMORY_MANAGMENT

I've attached dumps, Autorun and the other tool that was listed....I hope you can help!

A:Seemingly Random BSoD's

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.
