Q: PC Randomly Crashes (know problem need fix)

Heyo, my pc randomly crashes on fullscreen games and applications after running them for a while. I used WhoCrashed and it generated me this:
On Sat 6/10/2017 5:38:53 PM your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\061017-35703-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: netbt.sys (netbt+0x446A0)
Bugcheck code: 0x7A (0xFFFFA483C5FFBBB0, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000185, 0x24F606860, 0xFFFFF806706E46A0)
Error: KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR
file path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\netbt.sys
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: MBT Transport driver
Bug check description: This bug check indicates that the requested page of kernel data from the paging file could not be read into memory.
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system that cannot be identified at this time.

Conclusion:
4 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. No offending third party drivers have been found. Connsider using WhoCrashed Professional which offers more detailed analysis using symbol resolution. Also configuring your system to produce a full memory dump may help you.
Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.
How do I fix this?

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.

Like the title says my pc will crash. It was happening once in awhile so i reseated everything and now...more problems. I can't play any games that require heavy load at all(BF2, CS:S, CS,...).

The crash is like this... I start up the game, play for about 3-5minutes or so and its like someone pulls the plug on the pc. Blackscreen and box is off. When this happens I can't start the pc by pressing the Power Button. I need to disconnect the PSU for about 5-6seconds so the light on the mobo turns off and plug it back it. It boots up fine then but again unable to do any gaming on the box.

It only happens with games..photoshop, ripping videos, normal browsing, leaving the pc on for long periods of time, works fine. Just games that seems to cause this crash.

I ordered a new PSU but its going to get here friday. Since I do spend most of my time playing game instead of watching tv... I tried swapping out parts to see if I can get something to run a game for 10minutes. Used only (DIMM1&2,3&4)half of my dual channel ram, same results, pulled the plug on 2 CD drives, same result.

I swapped out my gfx card for a older apg one and the pc will boot for 5seconds then turn off. Also after I reseated everything, I can no longer have both HD's hooked up. When both are connected the pc will boot up for 5seconds and shut off, just like what happened when i swapped gfx cards.

A:Computer Crashes Randomly - PSU problem?

It certainly looks as if its your psu that's at fault. The problem with pulling a lot of power from a psu is that it heats up, so it could well be heat that is the true cause.
I suffered the same problem years ago when using a 300watt, my solution was to add my spare 300watt n use 1 to run my mobo and 1 to run everything else. I'm not suggesting this will be a cure for you as it required a lot of modding and rewiring, but it did prove it was a power issue.

You could check if your psu is being cooled properly, it its very dusty that would explain it not running properly as dust decreases the cooling efficiency of fans.

Hello. First of all, thank you for reading my post. I recently discovered a Trojan on my computer and instead of going through the tedias process of getting rid of it, I decided to wipe my hard drive and load a 64 bit version of windows 7 ( an upgrade from the previous 32 bit version I had with the virus). The installation went smoothly and I began to download most of my drivers with no issues. I even downloaded World of Warcraft with no issues. I turned my computer off and got some sleep. I returned only to see that my computer would keep restarting during the start up process.

So, knowin a little about computers, I shut everything down. Checked and cleaned the inside of my PC. Re-set the memory and reset the battery to reload BIOS. I put everything back together, and it started up no problem. Success!!! NO! As I began surfing the internet, IE will randomly shut down and just keep doing it. As I scrambled for a solution to this very annoying problem, my computer would shut down, sending me to a blue screen which states a bunch of stuff that I don't understand. Being the hands on guy I am, I went back to search for a solution with the new information. I figured that maybe BIOS wasn't updated or that I didn't have all the needed drivers downloaded yet.

So I went to download some more updates and every time I go to download something I get a setup error or something that keeps the download from finishing! So, I threw my hands up and came here, hoping that som... Read more

Hey guys, I'm going on my 10th hour of trouble shooting here.

Started my PC this morning, went and opened Steam, then windows explorer crashed without a message (Task bar disappeared) and locked up my whole PC for about 5 seconds before the BSOD. Rebooted to install "WhoCrashed" to read the minidump. During this process, I went through about 6 other crashes of the same nature. It doesn't seem to be dependent on load, however, because it'll happen just sitting idle on the desktop too.

On the most recent crash, I noticed that around the same time explorer crashed, my Razer keyboard and mouse both died out, leaving me no control.

I just got a new graphics card (NVIDEA Geforce GTX 960 4GB) 2 weeks ago and it was all fine up until now, so I'm not sure if it's related. We put in a Coolermaster CPU cooler at the same time, new thermal paste, etc. and all temperatures are normal (about 90 degrees F, same as always). None of my temps are off from what they've been for the last 2 years, and I don't think I've ever had a BSOD on this custom PC.

Updated NVIDEA drivers from safe mode, started looking into Motherboard updates, but not applying any because I can't even tell what I have already. Everything is fine and dandy in safe mode.

So, please, for the love of all things holy, someone help me out here... I'm good with PC's but I'm at my witt's end here. Attached you should find the proper log and an image from Speccy. Had to take it with my phone beca... Read more

Im confused, but I will describe this best I can:

explorer.exe crashes when viewing folders or anything built on explorer.exe (I guess) at exactly 11 seconds in on them. It also randomly crashes every couple hours. Im extremely confused by all this and wondering if anyone knows what is going on.

Thanks to anyone who helps or attempts to do so.
 

A:XP SP2: explorer.exe randomly crashes and always crashes when in folders

Have you done any recent updates or installed any new software to the computer?

Also, I would suggest downloading HiJackThis! and then including the log file in a post so that it can be looked at by one of the qualified agents here in order to help you out. Also you might try downloading and installing MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware and running it. I have found that program to be quite helpful in identifying potential OS issues.

If you are getting explorer.exe crashes as often as you say, then there may be more serious damage to your operating system that will potentially result in a clean reinstall.

OCZ MODX STREAM-PRO PSU (700W)
8gb Corsair Vengance at 9-9-24 and 1600Mhz

I was told this was most likely a problem with HDD or RAM.
So i have tried replacing my HDD with an old spare, but the pc would still turned off. So i am running HD Tune on my primary HDD to test for errors.
The health tab returns no errors though so i am assuming that this is all good.

I ran memtest 86+ overnight , but with both sticks installed, and it returned no errors (should i retry with one stick at a time?) .

The apparent next cause of such an issue would be the PSU, but after runnnig occt for 30-60 mins it gave voltages on all 3 rails well within 5%, the largest deviation was about 0.5% . Should i also check the bios volatges ?

My cpu reaches about 70 C at full load under OCCT's burn in tests, so i dont think that would be a problem.

It seems to occur more in some games than others, although it also has occurred while at idle.

Also sometimes the peripherals and screen freeze for up to 3 seconds and then become responsive again, they also make the usb insertion sound when they reconnect , so i am assuming that they are losing signal from the mobo.

This leads me to believe that the mobo is the problem, although i dont have a spare one to test with at the moment.

One last note, it can freeze/turn off up to 5 times a day, but then work fine for then next 3-4 days... It seems completely random

(made no difference)It's fully up to date and checked with the solution centre (detailed tests - no faults found) So - took it in for warranty service, diagnosed graphics card fault and replaced the motherboard.

Last week my computer started randomly crashing at different intervals. This happened before when I bought my computer and I found out it was because of faulty memory. I had my memory replaced, and I ran MemTest several times to ensure that the problem is fixed.

As mentioned earlier, this week my computer started crashing. Usually when the computer crashes, I would have Firefox and Adobe Flash opened. Since last week, I have not been doing anything really unusual or installed any new software. I have started using [email protected] again (I have not used it for about half a year), and I also have once again started using Adobe Flash (I haven't used it for about three months). Earlier today, when I went to turn on my computer, it froze when trying to start Windows. I restarted it and it froze again right before it started to load Windows. I also received a warning from AVG saying that my computer is infected with Tracking cookie.Dealtime, but I think this is an unrelated incident.

EDIT: I also want to add that my computer also stutters every now and then. For example, I would be scrolling through an article on Firefox and my computer would freeze for about ten seconds. I can tell it is frozen because I have a digital clock widget on my desktop, and the seconds would stop for about ten seconds. This tends to happen quite often (usually several times an hour).

I have the machine with specs below. It crashes terminally (power off after a brief quiet whirr very close or identical to an intended shutdown). More so during games, especially my now barely played Empire: Total War. My video card has the latest drivers (and the PC crashed when they were not so new). I intend to see what the power supply is, but with 7600 GT graphics card not being very power hungry I doubt that it is a problem. Overheating? The PC is noisy when starting then goes to a normal purr, so not sure about fans being tired, but any suggestions would be welcome, till I get a Windows 7 PC and a 3 year support deal (cheap now) for peace of mind.

The specs: incidentally it says my dvd is sony but its now a liteon but I don't thiink that is the problem.

Hi there! I've got a problem that has been driving me crazy for the last couple of days. I have tried everything I can think of but it has not gotten any better. My computer is a Asus notebook, model N56JR and was working as it should up until one week ago. The crashes mainly happen when I play games but the temperatures seems to be fine and I have updated several different drivers. At first I was getting blue screens with the error message IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL but now, after updating drivers, all that's happening is that it just reboots, not creating any dump files. Any help would be much appreciated and if there's more information required I'll be happy to provide it!

Hello

I have recently bought a few parts for my computer and since then I'm experiencing some problems with it. The parts which I bought were ASRock Z77 Pro 4, i5 2500k, Corsair Vengeance 8GB and 2 Seagate Barracuda 1TB drives.

After a couple of hours of playing a game, or some other heavy activity, my computer suddenly hangs and I need to press the "reset" button on the case. It never happened before I bought the new parts. I noticed that using my system on the old drive and disconnecting the new Seagate drives, I never crashed, it was only when the Seagate drives were in use. However since then I had to reinstall my system since I had that other one for quite some time now, and I thought I need reinstall.

I installed my new system on one of the Seagate drives, and during normal work, like watching youtube or browsing files, everything is fine, but once i start playing a game or use uTorrent for a couple of hours, the computer will crash.

I ran Memtest on each memory stick for 14 passes without errors. I also scanned the HDDs with MHDD and it showed no errors, and CrystalDiskInfo shows that the HDD is healthy. Also, there are no errors at all in the Event Viewer during the time of the crash. No BSODs too.

A:My computer randomly crashes!

This sounds like either a power issue or your CPU is overheating which is forcing your motherboard to react and shut down the PC as a safety mechanism. The fact that this happens during gaming specifically seems to alert to that possibility.

Check inside your computer and make sure your CPU fan is running and has no dust collecting on it and that your PC has adequate air flow. If you installed the CPU fan yourself recently, it may be caused by improper application of thermal paste.

That's my initial diagnosis. I'll need more info in order to analyze this properly. If your PC crashes too early, then start up your computer in Safe Mode (with Networking preferably) by pressing F8 while it's starting (before the Windows logo pops up). Then follow the instructions here. This will provide a good report for us to look at.

Hi, i have a toshiba l300d satellite computer, however It keeps on Crashing at random times "when i mean crashing it as if someone was holding the turn on button" {when there is not} and when i try to turn it on again it will crash again

The only way i can stop this is if i leave it for 30 minuites or so and come back and then restart it, i have checked on many websites and rang toshiba but they could not help me.

If anyone could help please reply

Also when i first purchased the computer the battery lasted for 2 hours or so, and in the last year or so it has been maxed to 15 minuites on its battery i am not sure if this is linked to it but i dont really mind the small battery problem but anyways thankyou.
(also this is a problem with the computer to it is slow o.0)
 

A:My laptop crashes randomly and often

Shutting down after some period of use could be related to heat. The fact that it comes on after sitting for 30 minutes also points to a heat issue.

The battery life could be normal, rechargeable batteries lose the ability to hold a full charge after so many recharge cycles. You may just need to replace the battery.

Hey, Ryan here and I have been experienceing some Internet problems over the past months. This all started when I got my brand new pc. So when i got my computer, my internet was randomly crashing and I didn't know what to do. So at that time I thought it was the router so I attempted to reset it, but completely failed and I had to get my father to fix it. But the good news about me breaking my router was my Internet stared working. So now after a while it stopped working agin and I don't want to break my router again to solve connection issues. Also, this is the only PC with this problem and disabling my wifi adapter temporary fixes my internet problems. Yeah, so hopefully someone could help me with this frustrating problem, thanks.

Oh and here is my computer and Internet information:

I have a default gateway and a assigned IP address

For almost a month, I have been hit by some random restarts of my XP Home machine. Most of the time, I receive a Blue screen error that states something along the lines of "Dumping physical Memory to disk". I tried uninstalling all the software that might have caused the problem but the issue continues. I cannot even use System Restore to fix the problem. Also, some of these restarts bring up a window that states that "The System is being restarted. This action was issued by NT Authority/System" and it counts down from 1 minute. I can stop it if I do a "shutdown -a" command in the command prompt. I attempted a system restore to late August and the restore failed. I have scanned my computer with MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and found nothing.

I attempted a MBAM scan in safe mode after doing a definitions update in normal mode. MBAM found 3 things but before it could complete the scan, the program crashed and would not restart at all. I also received (IN SAFE MODE) the same window stating that the computer is being restarted.

I ran MEMTEST today but nothing was found. Any advice?

Hi my Windows 8.1 Crashes Randomly, without BSOD or Black Sreen, and restarts as normal.
See attatchment.
Any ideas as to why?

A:Windows 8.1 Crashes Randomly

This was from a Microsoft Engineer - Kernel-Power is just a 'system didn't shut down cleanly' message....

The kernel power event ID 41 error occurs when the computer is shut down, or it restarts unexpectedly. When a computer that is running Windows starts, a check is performed to determine whether the computer was shut down cleanly. If the computer was not shut down cleanly, a Kernel Power Event 41 message is generated.

Method 1:
First, I would suggest you to follow these steps and run the System maintenance troubleshooter:
a. Press Windows key + W to search Settings.
b. Type “Troubleshoot” without quotes and click on Troubleshooting in the results displayed on the left side of the screen.
c. In the new window, click View all which is towards the left side of the screen.
d. In the list of options, click on System maintenance.
e. Click Next and follow the on-screen instructions.

Method 2:
Step A: Boot the computer in Safe mode and check if the issue persists. Follow these steps to start the computer in safe mode.
a) Press the ‘Windows + C’ key on the keyboard.
b) Click on Settings, More PC settings and then General.
c) Scroll down to Advanced startup, click Restart now.
d) Click on Troubleshoot, Advanced options, Startup Settings.
e) Click Restart, select Enable Safe mode and then press Enter.
Note: Restart the computer to start in normal mode.

Step B:
If the issue does not persists in Safe Mode then perform a clean boot to check if a... Read more

My computer has been crashing ramdomly lately with the error message WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR. I thought this might be a temperature problem, but temps are fine. Thought it might have been my overclock so I disabled it, but it still crashes. I checked graphics card (780ti) and it's fine. so I swapped out the power supply thinking it would be issue. Still crashes. Unstalled windows because maybe it was a driver issue. Nope still crashes. Can anyone look into this for me? I've also included my dmp files and a specs list for my computer.

A:Windows 8.1 Crashes Randomly

I know exactly what that is. I had this problem on an older desktop machine of mine that ran Windows Vista, but the blue screen would say "The system encountered an uncorrectable error". I swapped hard drives, RAM, even bought a new CPU and kept on having the same error. However, I did find the problem on my machine, but may not be the same as yours.

When I was in the BIOS I looked at the voltages on the motherboard. Some of them were correct, but then some were fluctuating very badly. Installed hwmonitor to check it in Windows, and confirmed that the 12V was fluctuating from 9V to as high as 13V when it should have stayed close to the 12V mark. It would blue screen when it hit over 13V or under 9V, which also caused my CPU fan to act weird. So I had some bad VRMs on the motherboard and it also caused a high pitched whine. The motherboard was out of warranty and got thrown away when I built a new system.

Do you have another system to test your video card, RAM, or HDD, or even your processor?

Looking at bad motherboard possibly at this point.

My old Windows XP install was beginning to get a bit screwed up and things began to stop working. I couldn't be bothered fixing them, so I just formatted and reinstalled windows, thinking everything would be fixed.

Everything was fixed. But a new issue arose...

Explorer.exe randomly crashes, as if I had hit 'end task' on the proccess. It only happens when I'm doing something to do with explorer (like browsing files). Every time I go into a folder, My computer etc, it crashes after exactly 14 seconds!

I really have no idea why this is happening. In the event viewer it says this:

Event Type: Information
Event Source: Winlogon
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1002
Date: 22/06/2008
Time: 2:19:02 p.m.
User: N/A
Computer: CONROE
Description:
The shell stopped unexpectedly and Explorer.exe was restarted.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

So it is something to do with winlogon...

It is also worth noting that this does not happen when I boot into safe mode.

Any idea's on how to fix this EXTREMELY aggravating issue?!?

I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate Service Pack 2 and my computer crashes multiple times a day. Actually, that's not true. I turn my computer on in the morning, and within an hour I get a BSOD. After it restarts it freezes periodically. I can never use it for more than hour without it freezing.

I took a look at the reliability monitor in the Reliability and Performance Monitor and found that none of the crashes are due to hardware failures. They are mostly Windows failures and Miscellaneous failures. The windows failures say that the OS stopped working, and the miscellaneous failures say Disruptive shutdown (which is when everything freezes and I have to restart the computer).

This is just my personal speculation, but the problem seems to occur mostly when I'm on the internet. I'll be watching a TV show or something. Though, there have been times where I've left my computer on the desktop and gone away for a couple of hours, only to come back and find that the monitor won't go out of sleep mode, which I'm assuming is because it's frozen.

I think that's about all I have to say. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hello there, kinda new at this but I will give it a try since my computer is so messed up at the moment!

Alright, as the topic says my computer randomly crashes. I do not get any error messages or such it just goes black as if i would disconnect my power cable (Blackscreen?). I have checked my computers CPU temperature with the program "SpeedFan". It says that my CPU temp is on: 32C. If you ask me this sounds abit low doesn't it? I have tried formatting my computer three times and this still keep happening.

It doesn't really mather what I am doing when this happends but it ALWAYS happends when I try to launch the game World of Warcraft.

My guess: Power Supply is not working properly? Since all my fans are working as they should and the temperature is normal I dont think that the reason is overheating.

The computer is 2 years old and it has worked fine until my father unplugged it when it was still on, the first sign was blue screens directly at windows starting (fixed by formatting) and then this problem accurs and I need HELP!

Hey everyone

When im playing runescape and listening to music, my computer shuts itself down. When I boot it back up, it doesn't give me blue screen, but a black one that says "Start windows normally, Start in safe mode" stuff like that. After going to one, my computer will go to the windows loading screen, then shut itself off again. And I'll have to start it up again, and eventually it will start up on the third restart. I'm running Windows XP SP3 2.00 GB of RAM. If there's anything else i can post, please let me know (Minidumps w.e). Ive also done a Virus scan with G-Data Anti virus.

Thanks for taking your time to read my question

A:Computer randomly crashes

Does it restart or shut down (off)? Complete shutdown is sometimes an indicator of overheating.
Does it only shut down when using those two programs? What about when under the stress of other programs?
RUN > eventvwr > look for red errors at the time of failures for clues.
Did you test the RAM with the freeware MemTest86?
I might also run "PC-Check 6.5" off the freeware "Hiren's Boot CD" to test harware.

Hello,

I just came back after a few days out, and for some reason my PC cashed several times today.
So my PC will restart (more like crash) after I log-in, it is random, it can crash in a few seconds or a few minutes.

Last time I used my PC, the "5,6,7" keyboard buttons didn't work (Logitech G15), maybe that could help.
( I usually shutdown my PC every time I go to sleep or go out).

I know that the computer crashes because, when I boot I get a screen telling me windows did not shut down correctly and I can use windows normally or with safe mode.

PC specs:
Windows 7 32 bit
nVidia 260 GTX
4 g"b ddr2 ram
Intel E8500 Duo 3.16 GHz
Antivirus:
Avast free + malwarebytes free

I've tried to find solutions for the problem and even:
- Tried to open case, and tighten cables.
- Cool the system down by opening it and leaving it to rest
But I had no luck yet, so I came here.

Help would be highly appreciated :)

A:PC randomly crashes when gaming?

Hello, and welcome to Tech Support Forum. To better assist you, I'll need a little more information.

What RAM do you have installed? Can we get a little more information about its timings, frequency, etc.?


Download and install CPU-Z and Upload screenshots of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs. In the SPD tab, upload an image of each slot. To upload all screenshots, it would be best to:generate the images using the Snipping Tool,
go to where the images are saved,
right click in a blank area within the folder where the images are saved,
create a new folder,
name the folder CPUZ,
select all the images,
place the pointer over an image,
press and hold down the left mouse button and drag the image (all images should move with it),
drop the images into the CPUZ directory you created,
create a compressed (zipped) folder of CPUZ
upload the .zip file to the forums.

Phenom IIs are very picky about what RAM they'll work well with. If you have 1600 or higher RAM, or if it is XMP, then it probably will not work with that processor as intended.

RELEVANCY SCORE 43.2

Product code is 10B60023AU
It's around 3 months old, Started crashing every now and then (no blue screen of death) just on one moment and off the next.
Crashes started to get a lot more frequent (like 4 times an hour - sometimes).
Isolation tests, different monitors etc (made no difference)
So - did complete software re-image. (made no difference)
It's fully up to date and checked with the solution centre (detailed tests - no faults found)
 
So - took it in for warranty service, diagnosed graphics card fault and replaced the motherboard. Great I think.
That was yesterday, this morning (same thing - 4 crashes in less than an hour)
 
So - unless I drag this all the way back into the city for another 3 day holiday does anyone have an ideas ? Any known issues with these machines ?
 
TIA

A:M73 SFF - crashes and restarts randomly

I personally have a M73 SFF, and it's been solid as a rock (other than a problem with the Lenovo-supplied graphics driver, fixed by installing the driver downloaded from Intel), I don't know of any other issues. 
 
When you say it's " just on one moment and off the next."   Do you mean it powers off by itself?   
 
More information would be helpful (please read the 'help us to help you' sticky thread.)
