Windows 7 BlueScreen [TSF_Vista_Support & PERFMON included]

Q: Windows 7 BlueScreen [TSF_Vista_Support & PERFMON included]


My new laptop (Toshiba Satellite A500-19X) has been in use for just about two weeks now. On the 7th Jan I got a BlueScreen while using Firefox and iTunes.. I wasn't fast enough to catch the error though..

Last night I got the BlueScreen - twice. Using only Firefox and Windows Live Mail. I managed to look at the Minidump file, which told me that the cause was probably:


From what I've read this seems like a common enough problem with the graphics driver, but so far I haven't been able to find a working fix for this problem. I was wondering if anyone can help out? I'm running 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium and have installed very few additional programs. (iTunes, FireFox, Microsoft Office 2007)

I saw a thread here, which uses SysInternals and a batch file to gather some info about your system, so I've run it, and attached the folder. (TSF_Vista & the Perfmon HTML Report)

Any and all help appreciated on this. Thanks in advance.

Sorry for the double post..

Ok, so shortly after my original post I BlueScreen'd again. I got the error code this time, and it seems that the Nvidia driver is causing the problem.

STOP *** 0x00000116


I've included the MiniDump files here too, if they help out in any way.

Thanks again!

Also, can anyone point me in the direction of the edit button on my post(s)?
I would've edited but couldn't find it? :P


Preferred Solution: Windows 7 BlueScreen [TSF_Vista_Support & PERFMON included]

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.)

You can only edit for 30 minutes - after that a new post is required.

To fix the graphics driver:
- go to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx and download the latest WHQL certified driver for your OS and video card
- uninstall the current video card drivers using Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program
- install the freshly downloaded video drivers
- wait for the next BSOD.

Also, here's some info on STOP 0x116 errors:
http://forums.amd.com/game/messagevi...&enterthread=y (although it's AMD drivers, the discussion applies to nVidia also)

In short, make sure that the fan is working on the video card, that it's getting air, that the cooler isn't clogged with dust, and that the card isn't overheating.

Somebody knows which could be the reason?


An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at
an interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually caused by
drivers using improper addresses.
If kernel debugger is available get stack backtrace.

Arg1: 00000000, memory referenced
Arg2: 00000002, IRQL
Arg3: 00000001, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
Arg4: 85f09234, address which referenced memory

Debugging Details:

***** Kernel symbols are WRONG. Please fix symbols to do analysis.


FAULTING_MODULE: 804d7000 nt

Hello guys. am a newbie to this forum. Recently i have started getting the BSOD problem on my aspire timeline x. i did normal virus scans and nothing was found. after researching more about it i came upon this forum and i hope you guys can help. am a student and cannot afford to send my laptop to repair at acer.

The computer usually crashes when i have many YouTube video loading and MSN messenger running in the background. it has also crashed on random occasions like surfing the net, playing song or even transferring files to my Hdd. The problem kind of started around a point of time where my system could not apply the new windows updates. i tried to do a system restore and it still did not help.

All my drivers are up to date.

Like requested on the other post i have attached the Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 folder & the PERFMON HTML file.

Please help me find my way out of this. i have my final year projects to do and if possible give me as detailed instructions on how to deal with this.


Oh and BTW my system specs are :
Laptop model : Aspire Timeline X
Windows 7
64 bit
i7 core
ATI (HD 5650 graphics 1GB)
bought it from a computer shop with w7 pre installed
Laptop is around a year old
have not done any modification to the laptop
i have re formatted my laptop with a backup recently and problem is still there

Hello, I am new here and this is my first post. Thank you for your time and helping me out!

My question is as this. Is it possible to monitor my GPU usage true perfmon? I can monitor CPU, HDD and RAM in perfmon but there are no counters for GPUs. How do I get counters for my GPU so that I can monitor my GPU usage. At the moment I monitor my GPU with Process Explorer. But I want to monitor it all in one window (thus perfmon).

This is my system:
MOMO: MSI Bing Bang X Power II
CPU: Intel Core i7 3820
RAM: 16 GB Corsair DDDR-1600 (2 x 8 GB) (CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10)
HDD: Western Digital WD2002FYPS (2 TB)
GPU: AMD Radeon R9 200 (4 GB)

Thank you for your time and I hope you have a solution,
Richard Moti

A:Monitor GPU usage in perfmon, GPU counter for perfmon

Hello RichardMoti and welcome to Sevenforums. What brand card do you have? Most manufacturers have a utility that will monitor your card on screen while you are playing. They also have other functions as well. If your manufacturer does not have one, many people like MSI Afterburner. It is an overclocking utility, but has very good monitoring stats. Most manufacturers have their own. I have an EVGA card and use Precision X, Sapphire has Trixx and most others do as well.

You can keep a log of almost every statistic there is with GPUz. This will tell you how Graphics Card Problems - Diagnose

I recently built a new system from scratch and all was fine for a couple days; now I get the BSOD randomly. I know where the dump files are located but I unfortunately don't know how to read them correctly. As requested I've attached the TSF_Vista_Support + system health report to the tread if anyone could lend a hand. If anyone could provide some insight as to why I'm getting these random BSOD's I'd greatly appreciate it.

Here's the specs on the system:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Ultra LSP 750 watt PSU

AMD Phenom II 955

OCZ AMD Black Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

MSI NF980-G65 AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

EVGA 01G-P3-1158-TR GeForce GTS 250

LG 22X DVD?R DVD Burner Black IDE Model GH22NP20

Rosewill RCR-IC002 74-in-1 USB 2.0 3.5" Internal Card Reader w/ USB port

A:BSOD TSF_Vista_Support + system health report

The first thing that I can suggest is to get some more memory.
Your system report shows 1.87G of physical memory.
It also shows 1.87G of pagefile space.

You need at least 2G of physical and 3G of pagefile to run W7 in any sort of efficient manner.

I only looked at a couple of the BSOD logs and didn't post the results
because they pointed me to this as a potential cause.

Please run this as it may point out another possible issue as well.

After upgrading my PC (Motherboard, CPU, RAM, Graphic card & Power Supply) 15 month ago, I have a bluescreen error occasionally when I restart (reset or Power-On) my computer.

The bluescreen error messages are not similar, but either 0x0000008E or 0x000000E3. I have this problem occasionally and just on restarting, so that when my computer have a healthy botting, I don't meet any problem to next restarting (understood that sometime I have not any problem in next restarting too!).

To now, Some of my error messages were:

1. 0x0000008E (0xC000001D, 0x00010002, 0xF46EB96C, 0x00000000)
2. 0x000000E3 (0x858C8CD0, 0x85F82520, 0x00000000, 0x00000002)
3. 0x000000E3 (0x8603CBA8, 0x85E0FDA8, 0x00000000, 0x00000002)
4. 0x000000E3 (0x855EB4C8, 0x85F967B0, 0x00000000, 0x00000002)
5. 0x0000008E (0x0000001D, 0x00001002, 0xF421996C, 0x00000000)
6. 0x000000E3 (0x85FF99F0, 0x85E81360, 0x00000000, 0x00000002)
7. 0x000000E3 (0x858FAE70, 0x859279E8, 0x00000000, 0x00000002)
8. 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF5B6D4D0, 0xF7C48FE8, 0xF7C48CE8)

Sometime I must reset my PC 5-6 time at a stretch for a healthy booting, and hardly ever I have not any problem for a week!.

I did many works during these 15 months: Replacing my RAMs with two new one; uninstalling some of my programs; uninstalling my TVCard; puting my modem in other PCI ports; BIOS upgrading and many other efforts, but the problem is immutable. Please help me. What must I do? what is the problem?

Hello All,

So I have been getting the occasional BSOD while gaming/browsing the internet/navigating my desktop etc.

I have attached the Windows NT6 folder and Perfmon file.

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error

If you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps.

If you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider.

This is usually heat related, defective hardware, memory or even processor though it is"possible" that it is driver related (rare).

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:

1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.
2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled.
If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.
3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware.
It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.
4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instruct... Read more

My windows 8 driver irql less than issues that is causing my laptop to repeatedly shutdown

A:output folder + PERFMON Windows 8...


All of the attached DMP files are of the DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (d1) bug check.

This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.

A driver tried to access an address that is pageable (or that is completely invalid) while the IRQL was too high. This bug check is usually caused by drivers that have used improper addresses.

I and my colleagues have a problem with Performance Monitor (Perfmon), and only at
Window 8. 

On the Quality Assurance apartment that I work, we use Perfmon to keep track of memory leaks by logging private bites and handle count for the applications we test.
But when we use windows 8 we always have the same problem.
Perfmon stops logging after 1-3 days. Even if we do no settings at the Stop Conditions or we set Overall duration to 3 weeks.

What do we do wrong? Is it a bug?

Please help, we need to perform stability test at our application on various operative systems.



A:Perfmon stops logging after 1-3 days even duration set to 3 weeks at windows 8.

Please try the steps below for test.
To schedule the Stop condition for a Data Collector Set
1.  In Windows Performance Monitor, expand Data Collector Sets and click User Defined .
2.  In the console pane, right-click the name of the Data Collector Set that you want to schedule and click Properties .
3.  Click the Stop Condition tab.
4.  To stop collecting data after a period of time, select overall duration and choose the quantity and units. Note that your overall duration must be longer than the interval at which data is sampled in order to see any data in the report. Do not select
an overall duration if you want to collect data indefinitely.
5.  Use limits to segment data collection into separate logs by selecting When a limit is reached, restart the data collector set . If both limit types are selected, data collection will stop or restart when the first limit is reached.

Select Duration to configure a time period for data collection to write to a single log file.     
Select Maximum Size to restart the Data Collector Set or to stop collecting data when the log file reaches the limit.
Note: If an overall duration is configured, it will override limits.
6.  If you have configured an overall duration, you can select Stop when all data collectors have finished to let all data collectors finish recording the most recent values before the Data Collector Set is stopped.

Not sure where to create a bug report or to get confirmation that this is a bug so I thought I'd start here.
I've noticed that the values in Perfmon for Process::Virtual Bytes are radically different for a number of processes when running on Windows 10 / Server 2012 than, say, Windows 7.
As an example I'm tracking Virtual Bytes the process Services for both operating systems, and Windows 10 (and Server 2012) is reporting 2,199,069,044,736.000, and Windows 7 is reporting 50,900,992.000. Obviously the machines are processing different
loads but the difference in magnitude of 100,000 seems a little extreme.
I also see the same issue with the processes svchost, WmiPrvSE, Isass, MicrosoftEdgeCP, explorer, MsMpEng, MicrosoftEdge, dwm, csrss, Taskmgr, RuntimeBroker where they're all showing a value of greater than 2,000,000,000,000.
I don't see it, oddly enough, with java, firefox, or system.

Hey guys, i'm having a very bizarre occurrence that I can reproduce any time I wish. What's happening is that when I run perfmon.exe and right click on the graph area to bring up the context menu, any item I click will remain ghosted on the screen. This only happens the first time the context menu is opened. After that, I can click on any menu item without it staying on the screen, though the original one still remains. The way I can temporarily remove that item from my screen is by restarting dwm.exe (Desktop window manager). However, as soon as I open the context menu in perfmon again, the same thing happens.

Repro steps:
1. Open perfmon.exe
2. Right click in the graph area, click "properties" or something on the context menu.
3. Observe that the "properties" label persists on the screen.
4. Restart dwm.exe
5. Right click in perfmon again. Click "properties" again. Notice that the label is persistent again.

Any ideas?

I was bored, so I ran a few tests. I noticed something odd... perfmon tells me I have no antivirus installed, but I do. I have MSE.

The System and Security Action Center reports MSE is up and running, and I opened MSE... it is up-to-date and running in there, but the perfmon doesn't seem to recognize it.

Could any of you who have MSE run a "perfmon /report" and see what yours says?


A:Perfmon and MSE

Yeah, it also doesn't report having one with the system health report for MSE. It also has never recognized it for me with Avast with any Win 7 builds I've used up to date.

I was reading some MS knowledgebase articles in preparing to run perfmon to locate a bottleneck. What I'd like to know is if I should log certain counters for a while, then stop those and log different counters, then stop those and log another set of counters, etc. In other words, should I log memory counters first, then disk counters, then network counters, etc. or can I just log them all at the same time? Even if I can, will it make deciphering the information that much more difficult with all of those counters being logged at the same time? Any help would be appreciated.

A:Perfmon question...

You should consider monitoring some local and some remote. the main thing is monitor the network performance counters local and the other remote. you can log all the counters on the remote at the same time. you can always filter in the report mode those counters you do not want to display.

Hi Everybody,
I am little bit comfortable in using perfmon to monitor an app like wmplayer,cccleaner etc...
I have a doubt, when it come to monitoring my app, my app is bascially a batch file which in-turn invokes java and java makes call to JNI methods in a dll.
Now my doubt is if i monitor only the cmd prompt will it also mointor all those apps that are invoked by cmd and its children ?[i mean if i monitor cmd prompt will it also log the performance of java and the dll too??]

A:doubt in using perfmon for my app

Java applications can also hook to the Performance Monitor and log crucial statistics such as open database connections, or sessions over time, that later can be analysed.

It was suggested on another forum that I ask this question over here.  I just wanted to confirm if the behavior I am seeing with perfmon is correct.

I have created a trace file on a Windows Server 2012R2 machine, if I view the blg file on a Windows 7 machine I see a different set of averages to those seen if I view the same blg file on the server it was created on.  Is this the correct behavior when
opening a blg file created using a newer version of perfmon on an older version of perfmon?

I was trying to run perfmon /report. The status always showed "collecting data for 60 seconds" without further progress for 10+ min, and I assumed it just didn't work.
I was logged on as a domain user in my office but I had the admin privilege on this computer. Is it the reason perfmon didn't work? Would the report be the same if I was logged on the same machine as a local admin account?

I assume you are running it as part of the BSOD Posting instructions. In that case, if it is hanging then just upload the files you do have to this thread. It is not the main piece of information that we require, simply useful depending on the type of error you are getting.

Hello all,

I have a little software problem that I cant seem to find answers to or help with anywhere. I have XP Home(5.1.2600). I re-installed XP many times trying to fiqure out where the problem starts from. I should mention that my computer runs very good and is stable.
My problem is running the performance monitor. It works until I install People PC. The tell me Windows is the problem. I have installed w/sp1,w/sp2,and without service packs. The problem only surfaces when I install my dial up software to get on the Internet. Perfmon quits working. It does not freeze, it just does not work. I have tried w/services at default and all on.
I am getting Event ID: 1517 and 2004(perfnet unable to open the server service). I "think" I get this error when perfmon is working also. I have turned on the server service and perfmon still is frozen.
I have removed and then added the counters and tried creating a custom MMC. Still no results. I have used the Extensible Counter to disable the perfNet.dll. I can not rest until I fiqure this out. There is not alot of resources for performance monitor on the Internet.

Thank you kindly,

Seems like an issue with People PC rather than a perfmon issue to me. I'd check their website for info (I couldn't get in without registering).

Whether you have an AV installed and running or not if you run from an Admin prompt:
C:\Windows\System32\perfmon.exe /report
it will report that no AV is installed (??) even if Protection Center says it is!


It is a bug in Perfmon.exe. Securty center correctly reports the AV is installed.
I've tested this with 2-3 AVs, including Nor**n 2009 and it does always the same.
It's clearly a bug in this Vista's component.

EDIT: please read the full thread. It's a bug in some AVs installation as they forget to register some infos and not a bug in Perfmon.

A:No AV installed for Vista (perfmon.exe bug!)

Hi hexae,

This is strange. I have executed the command like you have, and this is my result:
Security Center


As you can see, there are no problems here.
What is puzzling from your post is the fact that in the Security Center Automatic updating is shown in yellow whereas in PerfMon Anti-Virus Information is showing red. I can understand the former being yellow as you can configure Automatic Updating to just notify you of any updates. I would be concerned at your Ant-Virus Information. The fact that you are getting different results for this category from Security Center and PerfMon would seem to indicate that your AV is not integrating correctly with Vista. I notice from your post that you mention Norton. I used this myself a couple of years ago when Vista first came out and was very disappointed with it. Even on clean installs, with everything done in exactly the same order, I would get different results. I came to the conclusion that, although it said it was Vista compatible, it clearly wasn't. Since then, I have used Kaspersky and have had no problems. Sometimes, the red warning shield appears after it has done the first update when I first boot up my system for the day, but that resolves itself when I reboot. This is just an indication that certain files have been updated and that they cannot be used until the system has been restarted, much as in the same way you sometimes get from Windows Update.

Hello all!!!
I have already read a few other threads pertaining to this but it has not helped me.
My performance monitor always samples at beginning of when I wake the computer. I have tried multiple things but nothing. I have even "unchecked" sampling but it comes back up again.
Im sure one of you really smart have heard of this problem.

Other than that, I LOVE my windows 7!!

Thanks again!!

A:Perfmon will not stop sampling.

You mean it loads at startup? Uncheck it using msconfig or autoruns.

And as I was writing this I crashed again lol :P

Really hope you can help me. Oh and by the way. I was running your program as administrator as you said but I force terminated the program after it had been writing : waiting for system info for like 30 minutes.

Tried to get the program to finish itself like 4 times but it wont terminate itself apparently :/

Even if I go from the "real administrator account" and uncheck "sample automatically" from the Performance monitor properties, if I close it, then open it, the checkbox is checked again!! I get the feeling it doesn't want to let me disable it. I'm getting a HD LED pulse every second like a clock. This could be the cause. Anyone know how to turn this off? If I go into Services applet the performance and notifications service is on Manual and not running, so that's not it.

A:Perfmon won't disable sampling

It is not Performance Monitor...It is only active when you are actually running it. Or when a task is setup to fire it when you created an alert. Sample Automatically is for the graph to auto refresh.

I am bit confused as i am not running any process on biztalk service then why the perfmon graph is getting on max (i.e)

As far as I know Perfmon access the exposed plugins like the following. In other words all operation is in user area. My question is does Perfmon reach into kernel area? Does it have its own driver and get the counter values directly from the hardware counters
and registers? Or does Perfmon has plugins which access the hardware modules. My last question does Perfmon read Performance Monitor Unit counters? Does it have its own Program Counter monitor driver?

I have a feeling that simply because I can't find any information is the answer itself. We've been doing some small scale performance testing in a Windows 2008 environment and need to move these tests into a production environment. Is there any statistics
on how much resources perfmon uses when running a short term (5 minutes) scan? I imagine its minimal if any but need to back this up for management.

Thanks - Don

Where to begin? After fixing a few driver errors last time around, the system went into a bsod spiral and we formatted and started from scratch (again, this is a brand new system). At new install we updated all the drivers that caused errors before. Ended up with the .NET error that caused a few .dll files not to update and replaced the non-updated .dll's with the new ones. Installed Microsoft Security Essentials and had an insane number of errors (which worked fine, system and all, until it tried to update itself after the system being off overnight) and a few BSOD screens before uninstalling it to a semi- more stable system. Tried AVGaurd for the anti-virus and it would install in safe mode (not in a regular start up) but we ended up having similar problems to the MSE install, so we uninstalled. Used CCleaner to clean up the registry leftovers each time. Windows update errors (included error image in zip) Perfmon /report will work properly one out of every 4-5 reboots. When it does, we have a short window to try and save the file before it errors. We've ran both the Memtest (4 passes with no errors) and HD diagnostics with no errors. Ran chkdsk as well and found no errors. When trying to run sfc /scannow it causes an error and closes without finishing (occasionally causing a bsod).

Going into try and repair windows at boot, the repair disc we made just after updating all the drivers won't work. It will boot and bring us to the point where we can repair from an image we mad... Read more

Someone wil analyse your dumb files and will be able to provide more assistance. Your issue seem to be

You should try to run memtest for at least 10 passes just to make sure another time.

Also, make sure all yours drivers are up to date. This also mean drivers for your Mobo such as chipset. Hopefully you'll get more assistance soon. I've read your problem and I have difficulty to identify the cause of the crash.

Did you tried the ultimate solution of formating your HD ? It's a boring process and certainly an annoying one, but sometimes it can save many more hours of headache and stress.

In past versions I recollect using a faster than 1 sec sample rate for Performance Monitor. It was done under Perfmon properties->General->Graph Elements, and you'd set "Sample every" to 0.5 seconds or so.

On Win7 this no longer works and the UI only permits 1 sec minimum sample rate.

Does anyone remember this or know when this changed? Is there any way to get a faster sample rate?

A:Perfmon max sample rate no longer < 1 sec?

I don't believe it has been possible to specify an update interval less than 1 second since NT 4. I know it doesn't work in Windows 2000 or XP. I am not aware of any way of changing this.

I'm testing out using a virtual ramdisk as a readyboost removable media. I reload the saved image at logon so data is persistent. In perfmon I can tell where its read from the readyboost cache vs disk. So far it looks promising. Is there a counter in perfmon that displays the process names with cpu usage? Because i go into my log and there's no way of telling what i was doing at that time. If i know this then i can learn what actions readyboost helps with. That's as far I have gone into observing if readyboost can help improve my system. I am hoping some other people have tried testing this out and can share what they did.

A:Virtual ramdisk with readyboost, perfmon

This has been tested by others before, mostly with Vista though. The general conclusions have been that it doesn't offer any significant amount of system performance improvement.

My understanding is that ReadyBoost is somewhat similar to a paging system, only instead of using slower traditional HDDs, it's designed for somewhat faster removable media storage devices, and/or perhaps as a kind of alternative to SuperFetch. (ReadyBoost - Windows 7 features - Microsoft Windows "ReadyBoost is designed to help when your PC's memory is running low. Low memory can make your computer sluggish because Windows, which needs a place to stash data, turns to the hard drive. Flash memory offers a speedier alternative.") The main advantage comes only from using ReadyBoost with systems that don't have sufficient RAM. If you have more than enough RAM, considering you have enough extra to make a RAM drive, then you likely won't get much if any system performance improvement by using ReadyBoost, even though you are using it on the much faster RAM drive.

You might try using the RAM drive for temp files, browser cache, paging space on 32 bit systems that can't otherwise use the extra RAM, and for temporarily storing files and running programs that are frequently read from and written to (such as games that often load new areas, or video/audio/photo editing programs and files.)

Also, keep in mind that Windows 7 does a better job of proactively using available RAM with features such as S... Read more

In task manager, tab Networking, I can see Network Utilization for the various adapters.  Was wondering if there's a perfmon counter, or a way to calculate this from the various counters that exist in perfmon.  Currently I see Networking counters, but the only two counters that make sense to me are "Bytes Total/sec" and "Current Bandwidth", yet I cannot seem to caluclate what task manager is showing.Any other ideas?

A:is there a perfmon counter for network utilization?

To get the Network Utilization of your NIC using Perfmon you will need to do a little math. 
Nic Utilization = ((Total Bytes\Sec * 8)/current bandwidth) * 100
This should get you close.
