Crash dump - Vista will not start and just keeps crash dumping

Q: Crash dump - Vista will not start and just keeps crash dumping

Hi all

I'm new to these forums and hope someone out there may be able to help?

Here is a brief description of events.

Windows vista started running slow whilst browsing the web. As we had had a similar problem earlier this year. A problem/virus I rectified with rootkill and caused by Antivirus suite (virus). I decided to run the rootkill programme in safe mode and started up the Malware Antivirus software (all in safe mode). The Malware software located 22 infections. These were subsequently cleaned / quarantined. I attempted a normal restart and the system came up with blue screen and crash dump.

Despite attempts in all modes of start up the vista will not boot? Just keeps crash dumping? I've run windows vista start up repair without success. Repair window says:-

Start up repair cannot repair this computer automatically

I've run the repair disk several times and it just keeps coming up the same. If this has been caused by virus/spyware can anyone offer any suggestions?

Thanks in anticipation of anyone?s assistance.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi, paulpsb Lets give it a try. Attempt a System Restore to restore the computer to an earlier date throughout the Recovery Environment in your CD. If that does not resolve the issue, follow these steps. You will need a USB drive. (Despite the OS is Vista, it will also be nice to know if you have a Windows XP installation CD, as we can have other options to try.)Download GETxPUD.exe to the desktop of your clean computerRun GETxPUD.exeA new folder will appear on the desktop.Open the GETxPUD folder and click on the get&burn.batThe program will download xpud_0.9.2.iso, and upon finished will open BurnCDCC ready to burn the image.Click on Start and follow the prompts to burn the image to a CD.Next download driver.sh to your USB driveRemove the USB & CD and insert it in the sick computerBoot the Sick computer with the CD you just burnedThe computer must be set to boot from the CDGently tap F12 and choose to boot from the CDFollow the promptsA Welcome to xPUD screen will appearPress FileExpand mntsda1,2...usually corresponds to your HDDsdb1 is likely your USBClick on the folder that represents your USB drive (sdb1 ?)Confirm that you see driver.sh that you downloaded therePress Tool at the topChoose Open TerminalType bash driver.shPress EnterAfter it has finished a report will be located on your USB drive named report.txtRemove the USB drive and insert it back in your working computer and navigate to report.txt

Okay when I power on my pc with Windows Vista it will go as far as the screen that I have my password protection on and then it will go to this bright blue screen that has a message at the end that says crash dumping to memory. it doesn't stay on long enough for me to read the screen in its entirety before it completely shuts off. As of now my computer has been on for over 30mins without shutting down but it usually shuts down when I'm in the middle of something or at start up.

Hey all,
I'm having an issue with my ASUS F5GL laptop. If I try to launch a game like Counter-Strike: Source, Garry's Mod or Just Cause 2, not long after actually leaving the menu and beginning to play (anywhere between 2-5min), the whole laptop just silently crashes. I checked ALL the logs, and there is nothing in there, except something recorded at boot, saying the computer was not cleanly shutdown. When it does crash, a second before it crashes, a weird thin horizontal line appears in a random location on the screen, going all the way across the screen. This was happening under Windows Vista, but I just bought and did a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium, and it's still happening. I have updated my drivers and it still happens. Laptop info is below (caution, large block of text)

Hi. I've recently been trying to play Metal Gear Solid 5 but every time I boot it up my PC either crashes as soon as the splash screens are done or after a few minutes. It's been crashing while playing other games as well but it's been much rarer. It's not a BSOD crash and it doesn't produce any crash dumps so I'm leaning towards it being a problem with either the PSU, the motherboard or one of the graphics cards. Any help with finding the cause of this would be appreciated.
The PSU model is fd-psu-newt2-800, the graphics cards are both Nvidia GTX760s and the motherboard is a ASUS Sabertooth Z77

My laptop, Packard Bell Easynote TM81, has been crashing and restarting by itself, and when it does, the ENTIRE system will not respond. So I try to format the entire thing, and after a few days, when I have gotten used to it, it comes up with a screen for 1 second, and all I could read was "system memory dump" and "CPU memory dump". So during this month, I have had to format the entire thing OVER AND OVER. I can't reinstall the system, because I am using a laptop, which comes with no Windows 7 CD. Please help!

I'm getting crash dumps everytime I try to turn on my laptop(Dell Inspiron 1525). The crash dump occurs about 2 seconds into logging in or if I dont log in after 2 seconds.

My most recent download was BHVideo which my sister downloaded as she wanted to watch a video. Now I keep getting these crash dumps

I've run system restores but it says 'System Restore could not finish as the disk got interupted' but I didn't interupt it.

I have also uninstalled BHVideo.
Before this crash dump occured it wouldn't allow me to go onto the internet as it said 'internet has stopped working'

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Ran virus scans and spyware. Help do I need to do a total reboot or is there help. I have the code that popped up on my screen if that helps

A:Vista crash dump blue screen of death

The time element does suggest overheating -- have you monitored for that?

Were there problems before you opened the case for cleaning?


I can run a debugging utility on the dump files if you do this:

1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
2 > navigate to c:\windows\minidump and copy the last few minidump files to that folder. *this assumes 'c' is your boot drive, if it is not, subsitute accordingly
3 > close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.
4 > use the "manage attachments" in the "advanced" reply window to upload that zip file here as an attachment.
If you do not see any minidumps, be sure you are not using any cache cleaner such as CCleaner. Also run sysdm.cpl and select Advanced > Startup and Recovery. Make sure "small memory dump" is the one chosen under "write debugging information" and the location should be %systemroot%\minidump

Since almost all bugchecks can be caused by faulty ram, I would recommend you perform memory tests.

On Vista you can run mdsched.exe and once rebooted to the scanner press F1 for Advanced options and run the "extended" tests.

Windows Vista x64. I was scrolling through my Vista Themes. Scrolling, not applying any of them. Active was the default Aero skin. As soon as I scrolled to a certain theme I got bluescreened. I'm trying to find the culprit file please help me. By the way, the rundll32.exe is the skin browser itself. I tried repeating what I was doing but scrolling over the theme didn't crash me again.

Hey so whenever i try to do something on my computer ( Windows Vista ) i get a blue crash dump screen and my computer restarts.

A:Windows Vista Blue Crash dump Screen

Hi All!

I have a repeatable Blue Screen of Death on my Vista Ultimate SP2 32-bit laptop (Dell Latitude D830) that's being caused by SonicWall VPN software or Sprint Air Card software. It's driving me nuts, and I need to figure out exactly what the problem is, so I've installed the Window's Debugger and pointed it to the Symbols location in order to debug the dump files.

However, this is worthless at the moment, since my crashes are NOT producing any crash dump files. I've had plenty of BSOD's before, but never cared to troubleshoot them. But it appears that my laptop has NEVER produced any dump files in the past on the BSOD occurrences. I've been to Technet and followed all the Microsoft KB articles I could find and have made sure of the following:

> Page file is set to be greater than my RAM (4GB of RAM) -
----Custom Size: Initial Size: 5410MB; Max Size: 6145MB
> Crash Dump file location is set to C:\CrashDump, and the folder DOES exist (although trying to make it go to the root, and %SystemRoot%, ie \Windows, did not work either.
> Memory Dump type set to "Kernel Only". Forcing it to "Complete Memory Dump" via the CrashControl group in the registry did not work either.
> Overwrite previous dump is enabled.
> AutoReboot is NOT enabled.
> Dump on Non Maskable Interrupt is also enabled.

A minidump is not working either.

I got a bluescreen hours ago on my Toshiba Satellite U400 Laptop using Windows Vista. I can't exactly pinpoint the cause but this is what the bluescreen says

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectably exited or been terminated.

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory operations such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

I purchased a Toshiba netbook four months ago and on several occasions I have received a message that the computer is going to crash dump then it shuts down and boots back up with safe mode option of restarting windows. On two of these occasions it has happened when I put my flash drive into the usb port - a different one each time. I rang Toshiba but they could only suggest that it might be a software or a hardware problem. Does anyone have any suggestions how I could isolate which it might be. The computer is still under warranty but they did not suggest that I send it to a technician to look at.
Thank you

Go to Toshiba.com look up the model number of your machine and look for updated chipset drivers. Then install them.

let us know if this helps if not we will direct you to the right place.

Hi all, hoping this is the right subforum

I built a HTPC a few years ago and it had suited my needs fine. Relevant parts used are:i3-3225 CPU,
Scythe Big Shuriken 2 RevB,
Asus P8-H77 Pro,
2 x 4GB G.Skill Ares DDR3 1600 RAM,
Samsung 830 Series 64Gb SSD (OS HDD),
WD Cavier Green 2TB (Media HDD),

Lately though I am experiencing more frequent crash dumps and I cannot locate the cause. I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 but kept receiving errors, such as the partition was not GPT (0xc000021a). The one error that happens every time I tried to upgrade or install Windows 10 was winload.exe was not digitally signed. I wiped the drive, reformatted it as NTFS, converted to GPT and installed W10 from blank and still had the same winload.exe error. Right now I have put W7 Ultimate 64bit back on and am installing all the windows updates.

My question is, does anyone know why I keep get a winload.exe not digitally signed error? I have downloaded the W10 upgrade files numerous times, redownloaded the media creation tool, set clean boot, even tried downloading the upgrade and creating a usb drive with it from a different PC but same error.

Also, any ideas regarding the crash dumps? Is there some unknown incompatibility with my hardware? I do not have a GPU, just using the HD4000 on the CPU. Is there perhaps some upgrades that I should make my HTPC?

This screen never lasts for very long so I don't have time to read the whole thing and understand it, but it has happened multiple times in a row, it just states that there is something wrong with my computer and that is going to be shut off to prevent anymore damage and then it restarts my computer to repeat the process.

Hi, I have a fujitsu seimens Amilo Si 1520 Laptop with vista home installed.My problem is that the battery died whilst running and now crashes at start up prompting the recovery facility as the only option .I am guessing some files are damaged but the hard drive must be ok.My question is how can i recover some documents without formatting and loosing everthing.The pc has the recovery files on a partition . The only disc i got with it has only drivers and other junk you get with a new pc.
With a desk top i would plug the hard drive into another pc but cant see how to do this with a laptop

Any advice welcome.(Apart from "you should have backed it up ")

A:Vista start up crash

Read other 6 answers

My Windows Vista (64-Bit) just recently started crashing with a Blue Screen of Death while starting up. After the BSOD, My windows restarts and attempts to repair, and when it can't, I have to resort to system restoring. The weird thing is...it sometimes can't repair or system restore and goes into a cycle of BSOD crashes, but at other times it just lets me through and I can start up (like rite now it started up okay after 2 cycles of BSOD).
My windows is fully updated, I scanned for viruses and malware with McAfee Security Center(Full System Scan), and also ran a MacAfee QuickClean and TuneUp Utilities 2008 1-Click maintainance as well as a TuneUp registry cleaner scan (All after the BSOD crashes). MacAfee and TuneUp 2008 correct a few problems and clear some space every time I run, and the virus scan always comes up clean. I've been looking for solutions to my problem but can't find an answer. I also ran a hardware diagnostic and all my hardware (ram, GPU, CPU, etc.) seem to be working fine.
Can someone please help me with this issue. I'm actually scared to turn off the computer right now in fear of the dreaded BSOD followed by system restore (lol). My crash dump info is listed below when using Windows Debugger Tool:

My desktop will give the "repair" or "start windows normally" screen... when i select start normally it seems to process but doesn't. After some time it goes to a screen that talks about crash dumps.... that screen flashes "dump physical memory" then its gone. Next the hp screen with "boot menu" "setup" and "system recovery" appears. When that screen goes away it goes back to "start windows normally"

hi all,

about 3 weeks ago I built a new computer with windows 7, Asus motherboard, AMD Athlon II x4, 4 x 2gb Kingston ram etc and over the last 3 weeks I've had 10 BSOD. It seems to be random, ie not happening when I run a particular task. Unfortunately windows has not given me anything useful to go off. I really need a point in the right directions, ie is it ram or is it a software conflict etc. I've attached a zip of the .dmp files. Please if someone could point me in the right direction that would be great.

Hi - my pc was hit with a collage of malware whilst I slept the other night. I managed to remove the various items & no problems were reported by several different A/V scanners. But then I started getting these crash dump blue screens. Just got my sixth one - so apparently it's not going away. Are these fixable at all? Am I better off just wiping the drive clean & reinstalling? Thank you for helping. D

Hi ,

In my network, we are having around 60 computers. In that 5-6 machines will restart automatically at the same time. All machines will create the dump file. please find the dump file in the attachment. While restarting some systems will show blue screen, soe system will restart without any message.

These machines will restart minimum 2-3 times in a day.All machine are running xp and win 2003 server.

Please help me to fix this issue.



A:Crash Dump

All of the logs show a problem with "Rtnicxp.sys". It is a driver for a Realtek network interface card. If you have 5-6 all crashing at the same time I would guess some network traffic is causing it, except that should not happen. I suggest you check to be sure you are running the latest drivers.

Also, your logs are from at least two PCs. The one that crashed three times on 9/10 thinks the year is 2009.

I installed Windows 7 about 3-4 weeks ago and it's been crashing almost every day ever since. I analyzed memory dumps with WHOCRASHED and checked all symptoms through google and did everything that was suggested to other users with the same or similar symptoms, but nothing helped. I updated bios, changed to default settings, updated all drivers, checked memory with Windows Memory Diagnostic (it ran for over 24 hours), changed the power supply and even formatted the drive and installed a fresh copy of windows yesterday and still no change.

I'm guessing it has to be hardware (Motherboard, RAM (diagnostic test has passed ok?) or CPU). Everything except CPU is new, I got used CPU at very cool price, but now I'm thinking it might have been overclocked.

All minidumps are inside the attachment. I think that since nearly everthing has been tried, the short versions wouldn't help much so if anyone knows how to interpret those minidumps, please check them and let me know any possible suspicion.
Quick system specs:

Motherboard: Gigabyte G41M-ES2l (integrated VGA, LAN, SOUND)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6320
RAM: PatriotDDR2, 2GB PC2-6400 800MHZ
HDD: WD5000AACS (500 GB, 16 MB Cache, SATA)
DVD-RW: NEC, some old model
PSU: Lc Power 500 W
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 6.1 (Build 7600) + all windows updates


A:Crash dump

Having a look at the text now but you should post the actual dump file incase we need to dig a bit deeper

They are quite varied but the obvious is ram i would recommend downloading memtest86 to perform thorough testing of the ram, download>burn to disk>boot from it
Recommend letting run for at least 5 passes or overnight

You can also run a system files scan to check for corruption
Start>cmd.exe>right click run as admin>sfc /scannow

Hi there, have a problem I could do with some help with. I'm having an intermittent problem with windows 7 professional 64bit, occasionally the system will lock up (while playing games), with sound looping, forcing a reset of the meachine. This has happened usually about every 2 weeks regardless of up time. On reboot I've discovered that the error is WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR with Bugcheck code: 0x124 (0x0, 0xFFFFFA8004CE8748, 0x0, 0x0).

I've had a google around and found suggestions from drivers, to CPU/graphics card/RAM/Soundcard/Motherboard failure. However I have changed (upgrade) my CPU since the first crash and still the problem is there. I've used Intel Burn test multiple times on the system and its passed every time, so i'm hopeful the problem isn't the CPU or RAM. I have however noticed both on Asus's forum and elsewhere that the latest Nvidia drivers are problematic and I have seen several error messages in the admin console in Windows about the Nvidia driver giving "The NVIDIA Display Driver Service service has reported an invalid current state 32."

System Spec:

Western Digital Caviar Blue 250GB Harddrive
OCZ GameXStream 850w Silent SLI Ready ATX2 Power Supply
Asus Maximus Formula Intel X38 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 (was E8400 at the time of the first crash)
GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB
OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) PC2-8000C5 1000MHz ReaperX HPC

I've included the last crash dump, hope someone can help

My computer will only allow me to run in safe mode and that is it. I have tried running my Micrsoft Security Essentials software to remove any threats but it won't run either. Every time I turn on my computer and try to run it normally it starts as if it's going to work correctly but as soon as it tries to turn on all the way (after the vista logo screen) it goes straight to a blue screen and makes terrible sounds. I'm not sure of what it all says on the blue screen because it is only up for maybe half a second before it shuts my computer down, but at the bottom I do catch "crash dump" right before it turns off. I don't know what to do to fix this. My virus protection software won't run. I've tried deleting things that might have a virus in them, for example by frostwire. But nothing has worked.

Hi my windows consistently crashes and either reboots or BSOD's after about 15 minutes of work in a program I am running called Maya 2011. Now it only does it when I use certain rigs that have shown to be working on other peoples systems. I am pretty new to this but have tried a few things like turning my fans up and running a memory diagnostic but I am pretty green when a problem runs deep so here is my last two dump files if anyone could help I would really appreciate it.

A:Win 7 Crash Dump

Ok I did some reading about several programs I have installed and discovered I had two that had drivers that are well known to cause BSOD's. They are Daemon and Alcohol 120% and they are for mounting drives. I uninstalled them both and removed the driver sptd.sys. I am going to get back to work and update this later if it worked.

Okay, so I'm not very experienced with computers in general, so if this is in the wrong subforum, please move it to the appropriate place.

Since I bought my computer last year, it has consistantly been having the issue of randomly going through a crash dump. I could be playing a game, streaming a movie, running software like photoshop and it randomly goes into a blue screen, a it says its preparing to crash dump to prevent damage.

The reason it keeps coming up with is

This is VERY irritating as my computer seems to have good specs, i dont know why this persists. I've reformatted, upgraded to windows 7, and it still happens, if not more frequently.

I'll list what my specs are below, if you need any more infomation please tell me. I purchased the computer at TigerDirect

Lenovo IdeaCentre K210
Windows 7 Ultimate
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU @2.40 GHZ 2.4 GHZ
3.00 GB RAM
32-bit operating system
Nvidia GeForce 8800 Zotac video card
500 Watt Power Supply
(I purchased this myself because the video card i bought above needed 440 Watts)

Thanks for your help.

Start off by removing AVG including Identity Protection - indeed, a known cause of BSOD on some Windows 7. Use this removal tool when it is removed: AVG - Download tools

Use Avast or MSE with Windows Firewall in it's place.
