BSOD 5 times in the last 4 days after none for months

Q: BSOD 5 times in the last 4 days after none for months

Can anybody help ? I have had no problems with my system for a long time, now, but suddenly, I have had 5 BSOD crashes in the last 4 days, 2 today, and I can't afford this as I have work to do !!!

I've cut & pasted the data from WINDBG into an Excel sheet, with the 5 crash dumps alongside each other, as I wanted to see if they were all the same, but it looks like the first 3 are the same, but the next 2 are different !!!

However, all 5 of them say "IMAGE_NAME: usbohci.sys", 4 of them say "PROCESS_NAME: ekrn.exe" & one says "PROCESS_NAME: System" (this was the 4th dump and thinking about it, it actually wasn't a BSOD, I had to restart the system manually as it locked up, so that may be a red-herring !!).

Can anybody tell me if I have a single problem & if so what it is ? If I have multiple problems, gulp, I hope not, but any help would be appreciated ...

I have attached the Excel file and 4 of the DMP files (I left out the 1st one as the 2nd & 3rd are almost identical & I was only allowed to upload 5 files) ...

Cheers & thanks in advance ...

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.)

A: BSOD 5 times in the last 4 days after none for months

All four errors point to the Windows USB driver usbohci.sys as the cause of your crashes. However, Window OS drivers are usually too general to be of much help. They more often point out that there is a problem rather than being the problem itself.

In the mix of all four was the Daemon Tools 4.0 driver sptd.sys as being unable to load. This driver a) loads at start-up and b) have given may, many people issues. Try either updating this software or uninstall it.

Hi, I have started getting BSODs twice a day at random moments on my computer in the last 4 days. I've tried to figure out the reason for the BSODs but I'm not sure.

I often get the * Hardware failure * bsod. Now I know these can be caused by a number of things, so that is why I included with this post the SF Diagnostic Tool zip attachement so you can help me figure this out.

I consider my knowledge of computers (overclocking, hardware maintenance and debugging) at a decent level, so it shouldn't take much help before we fix this. I just need someone to point me in the right direction.

Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.

Hey guys, I was also having the same problem just today. I was watching youtube, fell asleep on my bed, wake up 20 minutes later and my computer was put to sleep. Not sure if the computer got hot during sleep time but it ended up with a blue screen of death.

An attempt was made to write to read only memory blue screen.

I've had bsod's a lot during these past few months and it just happened so suddenly. I don't know how to fix it Happens quite often, it's either a BSOD or my computer COMPLETELY freezes, I don't hear any sound AND I can't even move my mouse, make any keyboard gestures etc. It's just completely frozen, so I don't know what's wrong with my computer I've uninstalled recent programs, basically only have games installed as well as the normal microsoft programs and necessities. Help!

I've been using Ccleaner to remove my registry and clean my computer, so I don't know where the other dumps are, but the BSOD happened again and so I thought of looking it up and asking someone who knows what's going on so hopefully someone can help! Any help would be appreciated!

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000be (0xfffff96000323ad8, 0x8f400001c8ebf021, 0xfffff88009d92610, 0x000000000000000b). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 020214-15490-01.

Hi Simonpoo.

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

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If it does not show any error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



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

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



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

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



   Tip

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

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Hi -

Probable issues with RAM are a likely cause.

Run memtest86+ - http://www.techsupportforum.com/2863029-post5.html

Before you run memtest86+. . . .

- remove Daemon Tools/ Alcohol 120

- Run the Driver Verifier -- http://www.sysnative.com/0x1/Driver_Verifier.htm

I see several old drivers in the dumps. If BSODs are software related, D/V can help find the culprit.

Hello Everyone,

I hope you can help me out. I have been getting BSOD pretty randomly over the last few months. I finally took the time to try and figure out what is going on but whatever it is, is beyond my abilities.

This is the information i get when my computer restarts:

The BSOD occurs even when my computer is idle, but seem to happen more frequently when I am playing a video game or watching a movie. It is does seem to be memory related (or at least I do not believe so) and I have used memtest to go through both sticks individually for about 10 passes each. Memtest did not report any errors.

I hope someone can help me out on this. If there is any more information I can provide please let me know.

Thank you

Microsoft is unable to determine the exact cause of this error. However, this problem was most likely caused by an error in your computer’s random access memory (RAM). RAM is the main internal storage area the computer uses to run programs and store data.

During the crash analysis, we noticed the basic input/output system (BIOS) version on this computer does not match the specifications for the central processing unit (CPU), also known as a processor, that is installed on your computer.

The systeminfo report only shows 172 updates on the system. On most Vista SP2 systems the number is between 210 and 250. Please visit the Windows Update site and get all available updates.

Please do not use CCleaner on the system until we're finished troubleshooting.

Have you changed the CPU? If so, what exact model number did you install?

Does the system crash when you use Win7?

Have you changed the CMOS battery recently? This is usually the cause of clock changes in the BIOS. If this doesn't fix it, please let us know. Also, please do this BEFORE attempting any work on the BIOS (such as updating it) as this may cause critical errors that may break the BIOS chip on the motherboard.

The MSINFO32 report shows Norton installed. Please ensure that you only have 1 antivirus and 1 firewall running on the system. Multiple antivirus and firewall programs will cause poor performance and errors on the system.

The memory dumps point to networking errors. Most common are errors with your Avast program - but also some memory dumps imply that there may be a problem with a K9 parental web filter program.

Since you've already replaced the antivirus, please remove the K9 web filter program and reboot the system to see if that helps. Feel free to install the latest version once we're finished troubleshooting.

Hello,

This is a newish computer (Built in July 2009) and up until a few days ago I haven't had any issues with it. For whatever reason though, while I was playing the Starcraft 2 beta, it crashed to BSOD and had to restart. The event viewer was largely unhelpful in figuring out the problem, so I went ahead and ran a few utilities to make sure my computer is running as well as I think it could be (CCleaner, Spybot, etc., just to get rid of junk). All seemed fine until last night when I went to shut down my computer and it blue screened again, with once again an unhelpful event file entry.

I only have the minidump from last night's crash (when I shut down my system), as when I ran the utilities to clean up my comp the minidump from the first crash was deleted. Hopefully someone can help me out with this... Your time is much appreciated.

A:BSOD over past few days at random times

This is the second Starcraft2 issue I've seen today - I wonder if there's an issue with the beta? I'd check their forums to see if it's the problem.

BUT there is a driver on your system that's known to cause BSOD's - so I'd suggest that you replace the ASACPI.SYS driver (dated from 2005) with the most recent one available for your system from the Asus website ( ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt ). It'll be listed under the Utilities section and is known as the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit" .

The memory dump points to a memory corruption as the issue - so I'd try this free memory test just to rule that out: Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link).

More info on the STOP 0x7E error here: BSOD Index (Please note the "Usual causes" listed at the top of that section).

Beyond that, I'd wait and see if there were further BSOD's. If so, post the memory dump files and we'll move on from there.

I've been getting these at random times, it'll do it no matter what programs I'm running. I use chrome, firefox, and SR ware iron for browsers. trillian for messaging. sometimes have open excel. and always have my sticky note up. i don't have a firewall or antivirus installed, as i'm pretty confident in my ability to not get viruses (i've had this system almost a year with no problems) but i do run housecall every couple months to be sure. i also ran a malware detector yesterday and it came up clear.
i did a system restore to the 14th, when i had installed the new java upgrade (java 7, update 17) and didn't solve the problem. i did a system restore to the 7th (automatic restore point) and didn't get the BSOD for about 12 hours so i thought it was fixed. now it's back.
at one point yesterday, i couldn't even boot windows without the BSOD - would just give me a continuous loop of "loading" "bsod" and options to start normally or run startup repair (which didn't help)
i used the SF diagnostic tool and attached the zip as instructed.

thanks for any help you can give!

A:several BSOD in past two days at random times

After looking at your mini, its a hardware issue.

Have you overclocked your cpu?

Have you installed any new hardware?

Have you tried running memtest?

How hot does your CPU get?

It sounds like a failing hard drive, what kind of HDD do you own.

So I started playing TF2 again recently, so I've been using my brother's Xornet mouse. However, since I started using it, it would occasionally just stop working. Also, I've been getting BSOD screens that say "BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER" (I didn't have enough time to write down all the other information on that screen, but I changed the settings so it doesn't automatically restart, so I should have them if it happens again). The BSODs seem to happen at completely random times, except for one thing: they are always preceded by random "USB unplug noises" (i.e. the "da-dun" sound that you hear when you unplug a USB device). These noises can start happening up to 30 minutes before the BSOD, and they seem to happen at random times anywhere from 2 seconds to 3 minutes apart.

I followed some advice from another forum that said to uninstall your USB drivers, reboot, and allow windows to reinstall them. I did, and everything seemed to be going fine for awhile, but after using my mouse for a couple of minutes, it started happening again, and I got the BSOD. I don't know if the mouse is the cause or just coincidence.

This seems to happen whether or not I have USB devices plugged in. Dump file attached.

A:BSOD at random times for past 2 days, BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER

Oh snap: As soon as I posted this, windows popped up these windows (see attached pic). I currently have no devices plugged in to any USB ports.

I have no idea what any of this means.

There's all kinds of BSODs, Kernel data inpage error, page default error, and so on. I've lost count on how many kinds I've went through. I even sent it in for warranty repair once, and it doesn't do anything at all. The trip to the nearest Acer Support Center will take me half a day, and I really just can't take it.

Has been happening on and off for the last couple of months, strangely enough the problem went away once after we had a power surge but has now returned, Usually get at least 1 a day at a random time ( Maybe a game, maybe on youtube, maybe just right clicking a folder )

Took a photo of it last time and got this error code,

*** STOP: 0x0000001e (0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

After a bit of searching this forum i found i should also post a dump log from C:\Windows\Minidump ... When trying this i keep getting an access is denied message but i have admin privileges ?

Should also add that i have read about faulty drivers/ software and ran software to "fix" the problems yet i still get the BSOD.

Will try and get the dump log on for my next reply but any ideas straight off the bat ? Seems to be quite a common problem.

Three days ago my water cooling failed (got up to 77C while gaming is when I noticed the problem as my CPU should not go over 62C). I decided to install an aftermarket heatsink instead of a new water cooling system ,and add a few more fans just to make sure my whole motherboard was getting plenty of air flow. I installed a Cool Mater Hyper Plus 212 heatsink. I followed the instructions, and looked at a few installation videos on my phone just to be sure. I'm pretty positive everything was done correctly including the thermal paste as my system has not gone over 45C while gaming even playing games on Ultra settings.

I got one BSOD late last night, after about 6 hours of it being on but no other problems after that. Today however I have been having BSOD issues the entire time at random times from just 5 minutes up to 2 and a half hours between BSODs. They have ranged from: NTSF_FILE_SYSTEM, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

I have researched the errors on google all day and tried fixes for each one such as running memory diagnostic tool, deleting the old page info from memory and creating a new one, deleted all of my video drivers and reinstalled them, and I've even opened my case to make sure all my memory and cards are plugged in all the way.

Software is all legit, at first the install went as per norm, then later that day the system just slowed down to a crawl. 30-45 min to boot up, stuck on welcome with win logo..
and the same to close down... 45 mins.
used slim drivers to update all device drivers.. slow, slow... did memm test 86, hdd health ect... all good
it had vista pre-install which i removed completely-formatted-clean install
it's stuck now on 'expandinding windows'.. for 20 mins (0%) !
i build-fix desktops-laptops... OS installs ect.. this 1 one is making me grin
expanding has just kicked in (1%)..

Boot from disc-format-install-update-driver update...

This is my custom build computer of 4 - 5 years. The past year or so i keep getting random BSOD. There are times right after i do a windows update, the very next day my computer will crash. I am running the latest nvidia drivers, and also run windows update. Some times the error says Memory Management, or ntfs.sys, fltmgr.sys. I did a memory test and it passes. I also tested hdd for errors. I really can not take getting all of these BSOD. Right now, it is happening about 3 times per week. At times i am using my computer and other times it is at night when it is locked. I have not added anything to my computer since it was born 4 - 5 years ago. I also do not overclock or mod anything.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

edit
Forgot to add that sometimes when my computer BSOD, i am not getting the log dump files.

Hello,
New member here and thanks in advance for looking.

I have a home built w7 Home Premium box we use almost exclusively for Windows Media Center. I started getting bsod's about a month ago and before that got distorted *pinkish* video on restart or bootup at times.

Tried using msconfig and changed settings and thought I had it but it resumed the pink screens (sometimes garbled colors i.e. squares and other shapes) so I bought a new video PCIe card, an XFX R6700. Thought this had it but it resumed the bsod's and sometimes graphic issues.

Saved our pics and such and did a clean install.
Worked fine for a couple days then back to the bsod's and pink graphics.

Having a hard time getting the crash files together for upload, new guy here so hopefully I'll get it figured out and add it. The directory created by SF_Diag is 34.1mb large and when I go to U/L size limits say nope. Pointers here maybe.

Thanks,
behoof

They say, "If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!" and this W7 box is for her TV <sigh> Help!

Hey all. I have been getting BSODs everyday for a couple months now. At first, since the BSODs started at around the same time as I received my new motherboard and cpu (MSI PC Mate Z97 + Intel i5-4690K), I thought the BSODs were caused by this new hardware, but I am not certain as I updated drivers around the time too. At the moment the BSODs could be caused by anything.
I have:Ran memtest overnight with a successful pass.
Changed power settings to high.
Installed latest intel chipset drivers from intel's auto updater.
Installed latest BIOS.
Installed as many additional drivers from my motherboard's webpage.
Uninstalled graphics drivers (for my AMD HD 7870 GHz edition) and reinstalled.
Completely reinstalled windows by formatting by HDD and installing a fresh copy of windows on to that.

My PC specs are as follows:MSI PC Mate Z97
Intel Core i5-4690K
AMD Radeon HD 7870 Ghz Edition
16gb (4x4) of Patriot Viper 3 DDR3
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
Antec TP-650C

Here are thew last 5 .dmp files but as mentioned earlier the errors seem to always be different:

I have been getting BSOD's for the last week or so. I can't read the entire screen in time when it happens but I do catch something about a hardware issue. This has happened several times while playing video games, but others when surfing the web, or just doing some typing. I've checked all of the components and they seem to be functional to the best of my knowledge.

I was getting random lock ups as well, where the entire system would freeze up, I would lose control of everything. This happened a few times when watching movies or games, and the sound would continue on as if there was nothing wrong while everything else froze and would not respond. I reinstalled windows and none of these lock ups have happened since, and I went 2 days without the BSOD but it has come back today.

The computer is as follows with a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS

Intel 980 Extreme 6 core CPU
12 GB DDR3 Ram
2 64GB Kingston SSD
1 2 TB SATA Drive
Nividia 430 GPU

I've attached the mindump file and the system report file as per the instructions and would appreciate any help on this matter. While I am by no means a computer guru or expert, I've tested everything I could and found no viruses or lack of important drivers that could cause this. I also stress tested my GPU and CPU to make sure they were not overheating, though I didnt think they were. Under full load the GPU peaked at 81C with an average running temp of 40C and the GPU was 74C at peak and 37C at standard operation level.

Hello,
first thing: this is not my pc, so I have experienced just 1 of this bsod (chronologically the last one: this pc had 2 cd/dvd reader, 1 working and 1 not working, to do some tests, I disconnected the working one, at first start the broken one has worked but it gave me that BSOD).

Another info: after the 30/11 an external graphic card was installed (don't know which driver/version).

All the older BSOD (before the 21/01/2015) was not caused by me. I ask you, gently, to have a look at this dumps and help me to find the problem/s. Thank you

A:BSOD differents bsod ntoskrnl.exe in many months

Hello,
some days ago a friend took me his pc because he had got many BSOD (I posted yesterday about that with no luck), many of this BSOD are happened after I have installed in that pc an ATI HD 3650 PCI.

First test group on this machine (Acer T650-99TZ):
prime95: rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4 (after 2 minutes)
memtest86: many errors whit 2 stick of ram, 0 errors when testing the sticks singularly
Furmark: test passed with no errors (30 minutes)
hdtune: no errors

Second test group on second identical machine (Acer T650-99TZ + hdd, ram and gpu from the first machine)
prime95: rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4 (after 2 minutes)
memtest86: many errors whit 2 stick of ram, 0 error when testing the sticks singularly

Third test group on second and first machine (same hw except for the gpu: here I took out the HD 3650 and used the integrated gpu)
prime95: no errors (in 8 hours)
memtest86: no errors (100% passed)


Ram: 2x1gb 1Rx8 PC2-5300U 555-12 hymp112u64cp8-y5
CPU: Pentium 4 524
Obviously no overclock was made on this pc.
Obviously gpu drivers are up-to-date.

Now i'm trying to donwngrade the drivers of the GPU but I think this won't work, since the problem appear to be an incompatibility between the HD 3650 and the other hw.

Can anyone help me to solve this problem? Thanks

I update and save quite a few files each day, and I can see in File History that there are many saved versions for these files.
This would fill up my backup drive fairly quickly, and therefore, I need to reduce 'Keep saved versions' from the default of 'forever' to about 3 months.  But does this mean that all files older than 3 months will be deleted my File History backup?
 What happens to all my files that have only ever been saved once, but are older than 3 months?  Are these retained in File History or deleted?
The forums on File History do no make this very clear.
