Preferred Solution: Multiple BSODs after booting from hibernation in morning

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.)

A: Multiple BSODs after booting from hibernation in morning

Hello Kevin and welcome to Seven Forums.

Couple of things I'd like you to do that will help this Forum help you.
1. Fill in your system specs so all info is in one place.
System Info - See Your System Specs
2. Set up your machine to generate dump files.
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
3. Follow the BSOD posting instructions.

Each BSOD generates a specific error code or stop code that tries to identify the underlying cause(s). Multiple BSODs can each be caused by different problems. The error codes will be included in the dump files. Without those codes it will be a guessing game trying to figure out what is affecting your computer.

In the meantime you can try some general troubleshooting steps. Check for damaged or corrupt system files by running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot your computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Check your hard drive for problems by running Check Disk.

Disk Check

Howdy all! I was here in the past a while ago with getting semi-frequent BSODs on boot after the splash and login screen. The issue I found was a loose power connector. I snugged it in place, and then my system is fine for many months (maybe four or five). Now this morning, I had quite a few BSODs after the splash screen and logging onto my computer. I was finally able to get a successful boot after many attempts. I checked power connections, tried to make the connections secure, yet still got BSODs. Dump is attached. You guys are awesome. Thanks!

Hi there,

I am currently trying to troubleshoot my computer as it has recently stopped booting up. I have had a previous thread about this issue here. However, I am moving my thread to the BSOD section after suggestion by 'essenbe'

Here is a summary of my issue:
For months now, I have been having intermittent issues with BSODs, 'hardware errors' (in the reliability monitor) and freezes on multiple installs of Windows.A few weeks ago, I installed a new graphics card (Asus GT610 2GB) which replaced integrated graphics. Also, at the same time as installing the graphics card I 'refreshed' Windows 10 and installed all of the latest drivers.All was running fine for a few days, until the computer simply refused to boot one day. When ever I try to boot now, the Windows startup screen simply hangs and never does anything. Safe mode simply boots to a black screen.I have tried to run linux live cds and Windows disks. All of which often fail to boot (they just hang on the startup screen).

So far, I have tested my ram with memtest86+ (8 passes) and hard drive with seatools (long test passed).

I attach the last version I could get of the BSOD logs (the folder is slightly outdated as obviously I cannot get any logs now!)

Thank you in advance for your help!

So here's the deal. In April 2011, I decided to treat myself and upgrade my existing gaming computer. Pretty much just a nice overhaul while still staying affordable.

It turned into a nightmare.

For the last nine months I've been battling chronic errors. The errors are as follows:

Most notably, over time Windows will reach a point where if it's turned off for a long period of time, say overnight, when I try and start it in the morning it will blue screen. This problem becomes worse as weeks go on. Actually, recently, even the speed at which it gets worse quickens. I kept the same OS install from like May through August before it got to the point where it almost just wouldn't start up. Conversely, I reinstalled my OS just a week or two ago and it's already at the point. Reinstalling the OS seems to reset it. At it's worst (or the worst I'll let it get), the PC will go through 5-10 Blue Screens when starting up before working. Each time the PC gets further and further along when it blue screens.
Occasionally, after a string of blue screens, Windows will start up not recognizing my graphics driver (this is a recent development). If I then restart the PC yet again, it usually comes up fine with the graphics driver recognized.
Sometimes Windows will just freeze. Usually if I'm doing a lot of stuff at once (yesterday I was downloading, had three or four file windows open and was moving files around). When this happens there's no BSOD, nothing. The comp just freezes. I can't move... Read more

Hello! I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop running Vista Ultimate 64 bit. The computer has been restarting during the night in spite of my changing the Windows Update settings to download updates but not install so that there'd be no need to restart during the night. However, this is still occasionally happening.

Around 1 a.m. this morning, I saw that my laptop was restarting, with the black screen with the green light running across. I left it alone until 8 a.m. There was a log-in screen up, so I put in the password, and the "welcome" screen came up. It stayed on the welcome screen for much too long, so I used my husband's computer to look up what to do. After reading about the problem, I tried pressing ctrl/alt/delete several times, but nothing changed. So I shut it down, then restarted it, and left it with the black screen/green light going and went to breakfast.

Returning from breakfast around 9:50, the same screen was still running. Ctrl/alt/delete did nothing. Am currently writing from husband's computer and waiting to start mine back up.

In reading on this forum, one thread mentioned that a flat battery can cause problems. My battery is completely flat and does not even register on the battery icon...there is just a red "X" there. I haven't replaced the battery because this laptop has had so many problems since October 2009. I had the hard drive replaced in November 2009, then re-installed Vista in early December 2009. I'...

A:Laptop not booting correctly this morning

My Toshiba Satellite C50-A-1DV laptop, running on Windows 8.1 keeps booting up from sleep mode between midnight and five AM. It starts, the disc in the disc drive spins, waking me up, and after it gets to the login screen it shuts down again. I've been told to check scheduled maintenance but it wasn't, and has never, been enabled. On the 6th of May it started up at around 1:35AM. On the 7th it started at around 4:35AM. On the 8th it started up at 4:20AM (It's 4:20 man!). I've had it for a year and two months and this only started on the 6th. It's probably something simple but I can't keep getting woken up by this machine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The BDODs appear to be of multiple types.

Hey. I don't have much more to go on with this. I've been coming back to my laptop recently after being away for five minutes to find its had a BSOD and restarted. I suspect that its failing to hibernate properly, when it goes into standby. Tried to install the debugging tools to have a look myself, but I gave up on that =/ Couldn't get it to install. Hope you can help.

Oh, it may be relevant that I saw some sort of memory leak issues in the event log recently. I haven't looked into that yet, but I did notice the section here on those, and might have a look into it myself.

Hi all.

Recently Vista (Business, SP1) has been unable to hibernate. I either press the start-menu button, or the "Sleep" button on the keyboard (configured to hibernate via the control panel) and the screen goes black as usual, then after about 10 seconds, the screen comes back on with a "Locked" login window, just as if I'd hibernated and then immediately reawoken the computer.

This problem appears to have been caused by recently choosing to change from using the windows bootmanager to GRUB. Here is the current situation:

HDD 1 - Has Vista boot manager, and Vista. OS on C:, Data on D:.
HDD 2 - Has GRUB and Ubuntu.

If I boot from 1, I can still hibernate. I have just tried this, by changing the boot order back to how it was. If I boot from 2 (i.e. chainloading the Vista boot manager from GRUB) then everything works fine except hibernation.

Searching around suggests that other people have had luck with marking the Vista partition as Active. However, this is not possible in my case since C: is a logical partition and, according to Vista, it is not possible for a logical partition to have an active flag. Why this is the case I have no idea and, indeed, why hibernation should care about whether the partition is Active is also beyond me.
The fact remains, though, that even with an inactive partition, I can hibernate as long as I boot from HDD 1.

In addition, C: has the "Boot" flag (I always thought that the "Active" flag... Read more

A:Hibernation not working when booting from second HDD

OK, update. I learned that it IS possible to mark a logical partition as Active, and did so with gparted in Linux. This did not fix the problem.
I also tried using the MBR (rather than the PBR) of the windows disk to boot, in the grub config. This also did not help, but something mentioned on the Multibooters website about Drive Swap indicates that perhaps this is still not necessarily the same as booting straight from the Windows drive.

It seems odd that the partitioner has set the drive up in the way it has (i.e. one primary and one logical partition, with the extended partition being first in the partition table, and the logical partition (of course last) being the OS partition) and it has resulted, I've found, with the bootloader being on the Data partition (D:), not the OS partition (C:). The hiberfil.sys is, however, on C: and is not movable from there.

I will look into this drive swap feature, but I don't hold much hope, Any known fixes would be great still.

Basics: My system in a dual boot configuration with 2 hard drives, each running Windows XP SP2.

Long story short, I have a commercial program that cannot be saved and restarted without causing major problems (due to a bug that the manufacturer has no intention of fixing). So my idea was to run this application in one O/S, and to use hibernation instead of the usual save/restart process. For example, I'd start up my system, choose O/S #2 and work with the Buggy App. When finished for the day, I'd hibernate the system. For all other uses, I'd select O/S #1.

Here's the problem. During a typical dual-boot start-up, Windows provides you with a menu that allows for the selection of the desired O/S. However, after hibernating and restarting, the boot sequence DOES NOT GIVE YOU THIS OPTION! You can force things using the F8 key, but that simply generates a screen with two choices - continue with restart from hibernation, or delete the hibernation data and go to the O/S selection menu!

So - is there a way around this? In other words, can the O/S be selected before Windows makes the decision that this is a hibernation recovery and forces you down that single O/S road?

Again, any and all advice and comment is greatly appreciated!

I've been having BSOD trouble over the past four or five months now. The BSODs typically happen once a week, sometimes twice, with small strings of daily crashes here and there. I'm at my wit's end when it comes to trying to figure out where the problem lies. All of my parts are under warranty, so I'm desperate to find out which one, if any, are at fault.

I've tested my hardware extensively. Memtest86 for 7 passes on multiple occasions, using different stick and slot combinations. Ran torture tests using Prime95 for the processor. All hard drive checks come back without problems. Ran Furmark on my video card with no artifacts.

The BSODs happen most commonly when using video playlists for both Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic, multiple types of files. They also sometimes occur when playing particular games (Borderlands II, Dark Souls). Installing a fresh copy of Windows 7 did not remove BSODs, even after running it in factory settings with no additional installations.

I have attached a dump file, and I thank whoever attempts to assist me.

A:Multiple BSODs, Multiple Bugchecks (0xD1, 0x3B, 0x50, 0x0A)

Hi anthonylert.

The versatility of the bugchecks are the indication of failing memory prima facie, but as you said you ran Memtest86, can you run the memtest86+?

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.

Also, disable bluetooth,at least as a test. The Atheros bluetooth module is appearing to be failing.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Let us know the results.

My laptop wont start after hibernation. The hard drive starts to spin up after I hit the power button but stops and the screen stays black. The power is still going (I checked the lights) but it still doesn't start. Once I completely turn it off by holding the power button, it starts fine. It wouldn't be a huge deal except I lose everything that I had running. If anyone has any ideas on whats happening or how to fix it, please help.

A:Inspiron N4110 not booting after Hibernation

Hiyya leadwolf and welcome well one suggestion that comes to mind is disable hibernation. Personally I disable it to keep my machines up to speed. I also don't like leaving things running anyway and getting going from hibernation in my experience take almost as much time as a boot.

If you are interested you can find how in this tutorial which by the way that has other settings and tweaks that will help your machine run faster anyway.

Hello. I have an issue with my touch pad. If I put my laptop into Hibernation and reboot my touch pad doesn't work. The only way it would work is if I booted up normally or reset it. I have tried updating the drivers but it keeps on happening. My Laptop is always up-to-date. I have tried a clean install of my touch pad drivers but it doesn't fix the problem.

So I turned on my computer this morning to check my email and then it pretty much 'broke down' on me. First of all my keyboard seemed to have malfunctioned as the lights were working but the keys wasn't. What's strange is that when i pressed Ctrl+Alt+Del or Ctrl-Shift-Esc , the computer went into hibernation I think. Then i had to switch it off by holding the power button. When it turned back on this happened:

I'm pretty sure that the BIOS settings has been erased as the splash screen came up (This happened before , since I accidently touched the button on the motherboard but it's inside the case now) Then I was brought to this screen:

Your computer can't come out of hibernation.

Status: 0xc0000411

Info: A fatal error occurred (forgot what it says here) restoration data

File: \hiberfil.sys

Any information that was not saved before the computer went into hibernation will be lost.

So i turned it off again and on , then i received the follow errors:

I have a MSI GE620 laptop with Win7 Enterprise x64 English and every time it boots or wakes from hibernate the wi-fi adapter is disabled, I have to press a fn+F8 key, which enables/disables wi-fi. I went to my wi-fi adapter properties and unchecked "Allow turning off this device to save power", but it's still the same. Strangely, it never happens during sleep (standby mode), just during boot or hibernation. Wi-fi adapter is Atheros AR9285, and I have no other network devices enabled. It didn't happen before either.

Hey there,

So just to start things off, I'm 18 and don't really have much technical knowledge when it comes to computer hardware and errors, etc.

I started getting BSODs a while back, but they weren't very frequent, so I uninstalled all the programmes I had on my laptop and it stopped for the most part, so I assumed that was the problem.
As time went on up until now, they have been getting much more frequent, with the error message at the top stating something different each time, getting what seemed more serious. Sometimes when I get 1 BSOD, it would BSOD again on Startup, then again after that, which is rather frustrating haha.
I was reluctant to posting on forums, but it's come to the point of either fixing it logically, or ending up punching the screen xD

I can't really define when it happens, as it's more often some times than others, I have a hinch it has something to do with my graphics card though, as I would be playing a game, then I'd open up a new tab and watch a video then get BSOD at some point.
However it happens (less frequently for the most part) when idle or with minimum programmes running.

The programmes I mainly use on the laptop is:

Google Chrome
Sony Vegas Pro 11 (Video Editing Software)
Total Media Extreme (Personal Video Recording Software)

I can't remember any of the actual error codes, but some of the display messages i can remember are:

Last couple weeks i've been having a large amount of bluescreens, including but not limited to bccodes 116, d1, 4e, 1a, 50 and 7a. Last night it also froze two or 3 times with no bluescreen. I recently upgraded my Phenom 9550, Biostar A770E and 6GB of DDR2-800 with an i5-2500k, an MSi P67S-C43 and 4GB of DDR3-1333. The problems didn't start with the hardware upgrade, just escalated.

Yesterday I formatted my HDD and did a clean install of windows in hopes that my problems were just driver conflicts, so as of now i only have 3 crash dumps, 4e, d1 and 1a. 4e and 1a in BlueScreenView only show ntoskrnl as the culprit and no other drivers. d1 points at both ntfs.sys and ntoskrnl. A couple of the old crash dumps pre-format were citing nVidia and DirectX drivers.

I've put my RAM through 16hrs+ of memtest86+ testing, and used the windows memory diagnostic and the memory test in my BIOS. I also checked my PSU voltages with a multimeter, all of them check out. My graphics card is moody and sometimes artifacts heavily in games, sometimes works fine. Temperatures are not an issue, My GPU gets to about 72C in games and 86C in furmark torture testing without crashing. my CPU sits around 38C idle, 50-60 load, 70-80 in p95 without crashing.

A:Multiple BSODs, multiple BCCodes, does not happen in safe mode.

(The problems didn't start with the hardware upgrade, just escalated.)

so you changed out your motherboard/cpu/memory and did a clean reinstall of windows. so the only things left are video card/harddrive or power. have you updated your video card drivers? also try running chkdsk on the harddrive.


btw i love that screen name

Hey really lost on this one as I have not really dealt with BSODS before. I build my computer a couple months ago. Recently while gaming I have had roughly 5 BSODS. They are all for different things it seems like and I have no clue how to fix it. It wont do it while sitting on the computer on firefox or just the desktop but usually an hour into gaming I will start to get them. Any help would be greatly appreciated as my computer did not do this when I first built it! Thank you! I attached my file from your guys tool that you requested. Also I dont know if it makes a difference or not but when the computer crashes, all of my desktop shortcuts will be in random places not where I originally placed them.

I recommend to reinstall/update every driver from Gigabyte and remove the Gigabyte software.
The Gigabyte software is known for causing bluescreens.
For reinstalling the GPU drivers, please follow instructions below
Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Gigabyte. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver.

Hi. Last year, I bought a new PC for graphical software and gaming. From the beggining it had problems (I was recieving BSODs), so, I tested RAMs. It resulted that RAMs we're bad. I returned them in warrantly. (The PC was assembled by the shop, components we're choosen by me so that aren't any compatibility problems). Ok, so, I recieved new RAMs. But, even now, problems still exist. Now, even more, I recieve artifacts when I open a intensive graphical app (in some cases,even Youtube causes them). The more I stay on that app, more artifacts appear, until I recieve a AMD Display driver crash and, after that, a BSOD (sometimes,it directly gives BSOD, without driver crash). I tried to interchange RAM positions in all possible ways, but it didn't worked.
The GPU can't be placed on the 2nd PCI-E slot, because it is too long, and reaches the HDDs cage. I even tried a BIOS update (it worked, but it didn't helped me). I know that I removed the BIOS battery, I left it about 1 minute out, and put it back. That night, PC worked well. Next morning... The problem appeared again. I also tested CPU and HDDs, and they're all good. Can you guys help me? I remained out of ideas. Thanks!
As the BSODs appears, I will upload screenshots too. I don't have now any screenshots with BSODs. Instead, I used the program from the BSOD help, and I made a log, attached to this post.

My wife is a college professor and uses her Dell Latitude 110L a LOT for online classes, grading, and internet research (She NEEDS this machine.) This machine was purchased from an associate at work who was an IT guy whom we have lost track of, and it has been very good for the few years my wife has had it. Last week she began getting pop-ups of virus security alerts. I did some investigating on line and downloaded/ran Malwarebytes. This seemed to get rid of the pop-ups, but shortly thereafter google searches began to be redirected. Since then the computer seems to progressively run slower, the search redirections are more frequent, keystrokes do not register at all unless typing VERY slow, and once it sits long enough to go into sleep mode, it cannot be awakened without a hard shutdown/reboot. An odd, and perhaps unrelated occurrence is that upon initial boot up, the wallpaper she had selected appears, but is replaced by a gray background once the boot process is completed. I ran Malwarebytes and Symantec anti-virus scans this morning. The results of both indicate no issues.
She is running Windows XP with Service Pack 2, and somewhere in the process of all of this, IE 8 was installed. Despite knowing very little about this area, I am by default her IT department. Although I have little experience with this, I can follow instructions. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I downloaded HJT and ran it this morning. The log follows. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hibernation is pretty straightforward - put the system into hibernate (or have the system do it for you), and the next time you start up, Windows restores the system exactly as it was when hibernation occurred.

Here's my dilemma - After that one-time hibernation reboot, how can you go back and boot up the same hibernation file? This would be enormously useful, but I can't figure out how to make Windows XP do this (I'm running SP2).

Any and all guidance would be deeply appreciated!

After multiple Hibernation events: windows login fails to recognize correct password

After repeatedly hibernating the computer for about a week or 2, it will eventually refuse to recognize legitimate password and fail to login, yielding "did you forget your password" message.

IF I shut down the computer (thus losing all open windows) and reboot, the password works fine. I have repeatedly changed passwords, but this does not help.

Windows XP Hibernate feature has never worked properly and that is why Windows defaults with this feature off and hidden from newbies. I love the concept but have always found it to be buggy on every machine it has been on. Periodic shutdown and restart is needed to flush memory, but this is the first time I have seen this particular issue.

It seems to occur when Hibernation fails to stay off and the computer immediately re-awakens when hibernate shutdown is complete. In other words, unit will not stay in Hibernation but cycles back on, unless power cord is pulled. When power is returned, computer may immediately boot up.

This problem began on a newly assembled computer with fresh XP SP2 install. (AMD dual core 6000; 2GB RAM; Asus M2N-E motherboard). All updates done, including XP's problem with dealing with 1GB of RAM and more.

Gee, I am disapointed that no one was able to suggest something here. I did my part by helping others, so what's the prob?

Because this involves immediate rebooting of the computer(hardware?) AND a software issue of not recognizing password, I am leaning to CPU issue. I have seen some weird issues in past that were CPU. I do not have a tester CPU; I do have anothe MB and may try that.

Hello, I got some BSOD troubles I hope you fine folks can help me with. So let me describe what's been happening:

Whenever I cold boot up my computer first thing in the morning, chances are the computer will get a BSOD. After maybe 15 minutes of shenanigans, the computer works just fine for the rest of the day, until I shut it off for the night and the whole thing starts over again.

Now, this has happened before, when I had Vista on this computer. It got so bad, I went to a local computer shop that offered a reformat along with a free copy of Windows 7 Ultimate and Office 2007 for $75 (iknowright?). And for a month it was peaches and cream, but now the BSODs have been rearing its ugly head again.

Anyway, I tried to look at the minidumps with BlueScreenView and Windows Debugging Tool, but I just can't make heads or tails of it, so I come to you folks. I'll attach the zipped file SF Diagnostic Tool created. Thanks.

Hello! I am using a Dell 1640 laptop with 4Gb of RAM, which is running on the Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit version. A few hours ago, I tried to partition a memory stick, without a positive result, as I could not get the laptop to recognise the memory stick as a hard drive.
So I downloaded partition magic without looking at how much trouble the software caused to Windows 7 users, installed the program and ran it. A message came up saying the program is not compatible with my version of windows, or something like that, but I continued nevertheless. As soon as the program loaded, a message came up saying one of my registry files was corrupt, and the length of something was mentioned.
I did not check what this was, and stupidly, I just proceeded and, to my discontent; BAM. Blue Screen of Death.
It said something about a Kernel Error I think, but I thought it was only a one-time crash so I did not write it down.
When I tried to reboot my computer, and to start windows normally, the Windows 7 loading screen came up for around 5 - 10 seconds, and then froze for half a second, and I got the BSoD again, but this time, it only flashed, so I couldn't record the information.
I tried restarting my laptop again; this time I selected Launch Startup Repair (or something like that, it was either that or 'Start Windows Normally'). It went on for a few minutes, and did not do much - it only came up with 'Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically'.

Ugh... To start at the beginning:
Few days ago during start up I experienced my first BSOD and it was INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE. After few restarts system booted and I scheduled chkdsk /f /r (or the other way around, don't remember anymore), since that was what the internet told me to do. After another restart chkdsk picked up and promptly got stuck at 11%. Subsequent restarts
proved fruitless unless you count more BSODs, some times INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE and sometimes IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL with no further description. Eventually booting would stop at manufacturer's (Lenovo) logo. So I took the blasted thing to a technician.
The guy told me almost at the door it's probably my HD dying. He later said he run test on all hardware components but they all seemed fine. So he hit recovery button (I forgot to mention that I tried that too with no effect) and it worked...
So he recovered original W8.1 and upgraded it to W10. And that's what I payed him for in the end :/
At home I decided to make a clean install of W10 since I feel no love towards all the crap Lenovo puts in their laptops. Went fine, system worked without a hiccup for about a day and... BSOD on a startup. And refused to boot completely.
That's when I decided to come for hep here, but had no diagnostics to show and no prospect of getting them without Windows actually starting. Then I thought problem may be strictly W10 related, so I hit recovery and got W8.1 recovered. Their were some more BSODs during the process but... Read more

A few months back I had these blue screens but I was able to do some hard drive cleaning up (uninstalled unused programs, cleaned registry with CCleaner, cleared up some space) and the problem stopped. Over the last week it's returned but not as often. When it started happening again it would happen shortly after Windows had fully loaded, and this would happen several times until I could successfully use my comp without a problem. Since then I've had it happen a few times but only once each before returning to "normal".

I have:
- Vista Home Basic 32 bit
- original OEM (is an Acer Aspire refurb), haven't reinstalled since buying
- comp is about 5 years old from purchase

I've run Malwarebytes quick scan without anything detected. My antivirus/firewall is VIPRE Internet Security 2012. I also recently defragged.

As can be seen in the performance report, Windows is not recognizing VIPRE for anti-malware or virus protection and I suspect this may be the problem, but at the same time doubtful of this because I'm not getting any system tray icons indicating lack of protection.

If any other info is required please let me know. Any help offered would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hi there, I've been having this problem for a while now and thought I'd post here to see if I could get some help with a resolution. Whenever I start-up my PC when it has been shut down for a while (a few hours at least) I always get several BSODs in a row. Eventually it boots up no problem and works fine as long as the PC is left on, or just put to sleep. Powering down always results in the the series of BSODs again.

Now, I can use my computer for whatever I want for as long as I want with no problems as long as I don't shut it down. However, I'm not satisfied with that! This shouldn't be happening!

I couple of the error messages I get are:

driver irql not_less or equal...
page_fault in non paged area ntfs.....

I've uploaded my SF Diagnostics tools file as per the instructions i found on these forums.

I hope I didn't leave anything out!

Hello there guys, from the thread title you can already guess my issue is not simple. My computer is about four years old, and I use it intensively, so obviously sooner or later this would lead to issues.

For the past two weeks, I have been getting BSODs randomly, at first the cause was ndis.sys, which was caused by DAEMON TOOLS LITE. I uninstalled that and that specific BSOD was gone, but later, at random moments during gameplay I was getting strange "static-like" screens followed by BSODs, apparently caused by graphics driver. I have uninstalled the graphics driver and reinstalled it multiple times, apparently the BSODs stopped, but they came back and occasionally happen.

Yesterday it happened again, but then worse stuff started to happen. BlueScreenView points ntoskrnl.exe (BAD_POOL_HEADER) as cause for the most recent Blue Screens, and Windows started having boot difficulties, entering reboot loops (disabling auto-reboot results in an error). I have tried multiple things while in Safe Mode, HOWEVER sometimes I got a different BSOD even while in safe mode (the error was SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, as you can see in the minidump file). The recovery console doesn't work, triggering some kind of hard drive error. Today it has been VERY difficult to start Windows after a BSOD, I wasn't even being given the option to boot into safe mode, did various full shutdowns plugging the power cable off, and after multiple tries Windows just started normally.

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.

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.

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.


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 guys,
Short bit of background, my computer just had a new mobo installed four months ago after the old mobo died and fried the HD.  So new mobo, new HD, clean install.
I first started getting BSODs a little over a week ago only when playing Flash games.  I am still under warranty through Best Buy so took it to them suspecting memory failure.  They kept it for two days "running diagnostics" and said all the hardware is fine and had no other suggestions but a clean install.
That's kind of a PITA so I'm hoping to avoid it.
I uninstalled Avast and installed Microsoft Security instead as I've seen that suggestion while Googling; since then I have gotten three BSODs just any old time without doing anything very system intensive.  Woke up to a BSOD this morning after the machine was (supposedly) sleeping overnight.
I have not been able to figure out which driver I need for my Nvidia graphics card so have yet to do that - I will certainly look harder if that appears to be the issue though.
I tried to run Windows' memtest and got a BSOD while running the test which again makes me think memory, but Best Buy swears that's not it.

A:Multiple BSODs

Nothing definitive was cited. However, with your symptoms and the various error codes you have there is a very strong possibility your issue is corrupted memory. Therefore, we suggest you run Memtest on your memory. It is safe, free, and engages right after boot-up.

See the link below and follow the instructions. There is a newer version than what is listed; use the newer. If you need to see what the Memtest screen looks like go to reply #21. The third screen is the Memtest screen.

Step1 - Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes; the more Passes after 7 so much the better. The only exception is if you start getting errors before 7 Passes then you can skip to Step 2.

There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

Step 2 ? Because of errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don?t need to run the test any further on that stick.

About a month ago I assumed I had sorted out the issue, but now within the past couples days my computer started to BSOD again (Two within the day I posted this). They are seemingly random; they happen when I'm playing games, when I'm browsing the web, when I'm doing nothing at all, and sometimes even when I shutdown my computer. I can goes days without incident or have multiple a day, but their error codes are also always different (Which is why I can't list the one I'm having, there is too many). The last time I tried to get help I was told that Google Chrome could be the issue, so I uninstalled that, but as stated they still returned. As a preliminary I have already checked to make sure my drivers are up to date, so that shouldn't be the issue, unless my system lies to me (Or I don't know what I'm doing and missed something). But anyway I digress; I would appreciate any and all help I can get to try and end this issue(s) once and for all.

Thank you.

Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver.

Hello all,

I have tried fixing this problem for weeks to no avail so I'm seeking help on this forum now. Thus far I have encountered several types of BSODs including IRQL not less or equal, Memory_Management and today I got a Quota_Underflow. Crashes happen while gaming (online) and while surfing the internet.

I have did a chkdsk and a memtest86+ (single pass) scan which passed with no problems. Initially, driver verifier gave a BSOD with a daemon tools driver, so I had that removed. Then it gave another BSOD with a HID driver. My mouse and keyboard seemed fine, and I thought it could be my wireless USB adapter. I didn't manage to fix that because afterwards no further BSOD occurred for days. I did reinstall my graphics card driver which might have temporarily fixed the issue?

Not sure if this is important: One issue is the dumps not finishing during the BSODs. It would either stop at 85% or stuck at initializing. I gave it 10 minutes or so then had to power off, which then leads to multiple failed boots until I get into a screen that says my computer has failed to boot multiple times. It will then be able to boot normally.
I realized afterwards that it was set to full kernel memory dump so I've changed it to small dump, but later suffered a crash while gaming that did not lead to a BSOD, just screen freezing with defects.

Anyway these are some information:

Less than 1 year old
Did not reinstall OS

A:Multiple different BSODs


Before analyzing these, your post is a bit black & white regarding whether or not you're still actually crashing. Can you please confirm that you are before I take a look?

So, I have been working on fixing my uncle's computer and have had no luck.
It has has this problem before and they got it fixed, but now its back. I am encountering 2 BSODs actually one when i try to boot windows and one when I try to run the installation cd.

The BSOD on boot is 0x0000007B
The BSOD when using the installation cd is 0x0000007E, pci.sys problem.

Now i have run memtest86 got nothing, run the DellDiag tools and got nothing, eventually i tried to give up and ran Dell's Automated System Recovery(Symantec Ghost).

The Computer is a Dell XPS 410
It used to have a raid array installed now there is only 1 hard drive, probably the other tech's way of fixing it. Also there is no floppy drive installed and as far as I can tell there is no floppy power cable.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Multiple BSODs please help

First question, you mentioned that one BSoD happens when you run the Windows installation CD. Does it happen before it completes Windows Setup (first sceen where it asks you something, i.e. install Windows or use Recovery Console) or is it later? The reason I ask is that I have a strong inclination that this is a hard drive problem based on the information you gave. The only question is about the BSoD to do with the installation CD.

Over the past couple of months, I've been getting random differing BSODs. This is a clean install of Windows 7 onto a home-built machine. Most BSODs are occurring when no-one is using the machine.

Computer Specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) + all updates
OCZ Gold Dual Channel Kit, XTC Heat Spreader, 2x2GB, DIMM, DDR2-1066
Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16 GHz, 1333MHz FSB, Socket 775
Gigabyte GV-N96TSL-1GI Video Card, GeForce 9600 GT
4x640GB WD Caviar Blue (Raid 0+1)
Asus P5Q PRO Motherboard
Gigabyte Poseidon 310 ATX Mid Tower Case
Vantec ION2 500W PSU
Leadtek WinFast PxDTV2300 H TV Tuner
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Sound card

Would really appreciate any help sorting this out as I'm just about to throw this thing out the window.


A:Multiple BSODs


You are getting multiple 0x3b errors and also this specific 0x19 pointing at AVG -

BugCheck 19, {3, fffff80002e1ec90, fffff80002e1ac90, fffff80002e1ec90}

Unable to load image \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\avgtdia.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for avgtdia.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for avgtdia.sys
Probably caused by : Pool_Corruption ( nt!ExFreePool+536 )

Followup: Pool_corruption
What you want to do is completely uninstall that AVG. A good replacement for it is MSE.

You NVIDIA video driver is a few months old so I'd recommend stopping by NVIDIA.com to download and install the latest driver:


Your audio and lan drivers are rather old so please stop by your motherboard's website to download and install the latest drivers:


After doing these things, please let us know how it goes. Please post a new bsod crash dump if necessary. Good luck!

Hello dear forum users,

Lately I've facing a lot of BSOD's, varying from BSOD 1e to 24 and 50.
I've used this and this program to collect some specs about those errors.
I hope you guys (and girls) can help me.
If you need some further information, please tell me and I'll try to collect it.
Please bear in mind that I'm just an average computer user.
Thank you in advance.



Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? 64 bit
- the original installed OS on the system? someone installed it for me
- an OEM or full retail version? Full Retail
- What is the age of system (hardware)? About 2.5 years right now
- What is the age of OS installation? 2 months

Note: before I had vista installed on this PC, but I was facing several BSOD so a friend said that I should
install windows 7.

A:Multiple BSODS

Hello Jay, welcome to SF!

I see two likely causes; perhaps they are both at fault.

The first of these is SPTD, which has a long history of causing BSODs in Windows. It is used by Daemon Tools and Alcohol 52/120%, neither of which I see installed on your system. First, remove any such programs you may be using, and then remove the actual driver. Use this tool to finish the job: http://www.duplexsecure.com/download...t-v178-x64.exe

The other issue I see is network-related. AVG crashed twice, and Firefox once. It's possible AVG is the cause, but more likely, a network adapter driver is at fault.
e1e6032e.sys Tue Mar 24 14:17:23 2009 (49C923B3) - Intel ethernet
Please install this updated driver: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...d=998&lang=eng

You may also run a hard drive diagnostic; I recommend SeaTools.

If the BSODs persist, run driver verifier: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

I am back once again, with more crashes; after my last thread (Five months ago) all was fine, but now my computer is blue screening once again. I have had one BSOD every day for the past four days (If I recall correctly and including today) Every time they have happened I have been merely using the internet with Google Chrome, and possible doing file work (Like reading a pdf). Each error code is different each time; I believe the most recent was a spooler exception. (Though not 100% sure) All help is appreciated, thank you.

Starting a couple weeks ago, I've been getting BSODs, mainly while playing graphics intensive games (Team Fortress 2, Borderlands, Bad Company 2). It's summer and we don't have air conditioning, so I first just attributed this to overheating. However, even after taking the side of the case off and putting a large box fan up to the inside, the BSODs persisted. Usually it takes an hour or so of ga... Read more

A:Multiple BSODs per day

The memtest errors suggest a memory/mobo error - and not a PSU problem (but I'm not well versed in PSU voltage issues).
But, it's easier (and cheaper) to test the PSU than it is to test the mobo.

I would suggest purchasing a PSU from a store that you can return the PSU if you don't need it. Then try it and see if the memory tests still fail.

RMA the memory just in case. It has a lifetime warranty, so the cost shouldn't be an issue.

Check the motherboard website to see if there's any memory related BIOS updates available

Been having recurring BSODS over the last week. The major changes being that I installed a new graphics card, Ram & SSD Hard drive. I went ahead and reinstalled Windows at that point and this install is only ten days old.


Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
Motherboard : GA-MA77GM-US2H
Processor : AMD Phenom II 940 Processor 3414Mhz (Deneb)
Graphic Card: Radeon HD 6870 (Recently uninstalled the drivers)
Ram : Kingston DDR2 1066 Mhz 2gb x 2 (Although I have 2 more sticks I have removed)
Hard Drives : OCZ Vertex 60gb & 120 gb (I have two more drives that were connected - A Seagate barracuda 1.5TB and A Western Digital 500gb also disconnected at the moment)
Power Supply :OCZ ModExtreme 600W
Bios Version Date: 02/01/2009

If you need any additional information just asked trying to think of anything that may help debug my problem.

I do believe that I had not enough power going to the system and that may be an area where this may be an issue. However I have been unable to confirm if this is an issue but I do have one on order so that I can run the additional hard drives and Ram. Also while doing some digging I have found that there may be an incompatibility issue between my Ram and my motherboard but this came to be inconclusive. I have attempted to run a Prime95 test which just crashes my PC after approximately a minute. BSODS are random and occur when I play a game or occasionally even when I am browsing. I'm down to guessing at this point and any help would be gr... Read more

Hi all, so while I was streaming videos to my ps3 on ps3 media server I was watching a show, then my pc crashed. I couldnt restart, couldnt boot at all.
