BSOD randomly 0x00...124 ntoskrnl.exe+5b0d35

Q: BSOD randomly 0x00...124 ntoskrnl.exe+5b0d35

Need some help, its happens way to often. I did few tests on my own. Memtest 6hr, 2 pases no errors. I used event viewer and bluescreenviewer. I did scf scannow and got one error which couldnt be solved. And I have updated my bios. I can post cbs logs if needed.

Preferred Solution: BSOD randomly 0x00...124 ntoskrnl.exe+5b0d35

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.)

Hi there,

I have tried for 2 days to troubleshoot this bugger and i am about 100% defeated
Ive made a fresh install of OS, installed chipset and all the drivers, updated windows
I have tried Driver verifier for advanced troubleshooting, but it simply wont make the dumpfile with verifier on, so i disabled it again,
I'll upload all the minidumps that occured in this install of OS - used the SF diagnostic tool to ease it for you guys.. Please tell me if u need something else.

some BSOD's blame nvlddmkm.sys and ntoskrnl.exe but most only blame ntoskrnl.exeheres whats up,

I bought a new ASUS G74S laptop a few months ago and have been putting up with about a BSOD per day on average. I'm finally getting off my lazy *** to investigate. Even though it would BSOD it would never create a mini-dump file. I am able to use verifier.exe to recreate the BSOD and the minidump file. I selected all drivers except the Microsoft Corporation drivers. Usually my machine boots up in around 5 seconds (primary drive is Vertex 3 SSD). With driver verifier running it took about 5 minutes showing the windows 7 logo and then it BSOD. This time it created a mini-dump file, which I have attached. Please help! Thank you so much!

I tried to create a perfmon report, but it keeps timing out, so I never get the report.

Also, I attached the results of a bluescreenviewer.

I started getting the ntoskrnl.exe bsod a long time ago, then I replaced my ram with the new 16gb ram after running a memtest and it solved all my problems. Just last week I started getting the problems again. I've ran 8 tests on memtest and they've all passed, and I've checked my hdd with SeaTools for Windows, and that had no problems. I then reset my computer to factory settings and stopped having the problem for a day. The next day I started getting the bsods again. I flashed my bios to the latest version because I read that outdated bios could sometimes cause problems, and I'm still getting the bsods. It's usually never on startup. It's mainly after I start a program or when everything starts loading after I log in. But sometimes it'll happen randomly as I'm playing games.

Welcome to the Forum.

Please complete the steps below.

Based on the bugchecks, I would recommend you follow and complete the steps given below:1. If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop. Reset any changed values back to default and reset/clear CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS. Uninstall any overclocking tool as these can also be a reason of blue screens.

2. Uninstall your current antivirus software. It can be a cause of BSOD very often. Please remove it with its removal tool and use Microsoft Security Essentials in its place. Malwarebytes is a great combination with it. Go through this thread for more info.

3. Run Disk Check with both boxes checked for all HDDs and with Automatically fix file system errors. Post back your logs for the checks after finding them using Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

4. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to check windows for integrity violations. Run it up to three times to fix all errors. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations.

5. Make scans with Kaspersky TDSskiller and ESET Online scanner.

6. Perform a Clean Start up, this will help avoid any problematic applications from bugging the system.

7. Use Revo Uninstaller Free to uninstall stubborn software. Opt for Advanced Mode and uninstall the software, delete the leftover registry entries.

8. Use Crystal Disk Info to uplo... Read more

Hello there;

I`ve just assembled a custom PC with kinda high end specs and apparently something is wrong with my computer because I`m having completely random blue screens. First one happened after i installed deamon tools lite, while trying to shutdown my computer. Then i tought it happened because of daemon tools so i uninstalled the program then it was fine for a while. Yesterday while i was watching a video on youtube it happened again but this was a "memory management" bsod. First one was something like irql_not_less_or_equal.

And what i have done so far;Run memtest for 1 hours
Changed ram stick slots

Any help here will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards

I`ve checked asus ram compatability for my motherboard (https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/H87PLUS/#support) and apperently the RAMs (cmz16gx3m4a1600c9) that I`m using right now are not compatible with my motherboard. Could it be the reason for bsods ?

Hello guys,
I have been getting BSOD where the PC locks up and will require a hard reboot.
I am attaching all the dmp files from the day it started.

I have windows 7pro 64bit

yesterday I went through the other posts on here to find a solution and ran a memtest and HDD test and they both passed.

would it be the memory? I don't mind replacing all the memory...but replacing the OS HDD would be a pain as the number of software installs is too many and they take too long. It would be at least a 3 day job not to mention down time.

My case is dust free and it is cleaned weekly. so i dust on contacts would not be it.

any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Run memtest for 8 passes, let me know the number of errors (if any) were found.


Download Memtest86+ here:

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

Which should I download?

You can either download the pre-compiled .ISO that you would burn to a CD and then boot from the CD, or you can download the auto-installer for the USB key. What this will do is format your USB drive, make it a bootable device, and then install the necessary files. Both do the same job, it's just up to you which you choose, or which you have available (whether it's CD or USB).

Do note that some older generation motherboards do not support USB-based booting, therefore your only option is CD (or Floppy if you really wanted to).

How Memtest works (you don't need to read, it's only for those interested in the specifics):

Memtest uses algorithms (specifically two), namely moving inversion & what is deemed Modulo-X. Essentially, the first algorithm fills the memory with a pattern. Starting at the low address, it checks to see if the pattern was changed (it should not have been), writes the patterns complement, increments the address, and repeats. Starting at the highest address (as opposed to the lowest), it follows the same checklist.

The reason for the second algorithm is due to a few limitations, with the first being that not all adjacent cells are being tested for interaction due to modern chips being 4 to 16 bits wide regarding data stora... Read more

Hello guys, around 4 months ago i bought a Samsung NP300-E7A. After 2 months of using the notebook i started to get the BSOD. I have warranty on the notebook so i gave it to them to repair , and they said it was the motherboard so they replaced it, but it still still showed the BSOD. I gave it to samsung again to fix but they said they found nothing and made an excuse that it is a 'software' issue and that warranty doesn't cover that. So that is why i have come here. I have attached the appropriate files for you guys to analyze. I also ran the 'blue screen view' app to find out why i get the BSOD and i have attached a .txt for you guys to see.

Here is more information:

x86 (32-bit) or x64 ?
- the original installed OS on the system?

- an OEM or full retail version?

- What is the age of system (hardware)?
Around 5 months old
- What is the age of OS installation

1-2 months

Also samsung re-formated my computer and that didnt help neither

A:BSOD randomly ,ntoskrnl, non_paged_area

I see solitary bits missing from CPU registers in almost all the crashdumps. Most likely this is a RAM problem, with CPU and PSU being other possible suspects (mobo can be ruled out since it was replaced).

Run some hardware tests, in the order provided:

RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test; Blend; overnight (9+ hours)
GPU: MemtestCL - Run twice (if any of the tests work on your GPU; ATI cards will need to install the ATI APP SDK as it requires OpenCL)
Drives: Seatools - All basic tests aside from the Fix all or the advanced ones.

All of these (excluding MemtestCL) are included in the UBCD if you prefer a Live CD environment (which is the best environment to test hardware on). Note that Prime95 currently does not work on the latest version of UBCD. Also, please provide us temps/voltages using HWInfo with Sensors only option checked. Log two 30-minute instances: one for idle, and one for high load. If you can get the system to crash during high load logging, that's even better.

Hello all,

This problem's been plaguing me for a long while now (I think at least since Fall of 2011); my computer will throw BSODs at me at seemingly random times. They seem to occur more frequently when my computer is stressed (gaming, folding), but they also occur when nothing is really happening (leaving my computer on overnight with Chrome open). Since I don't know how to read dump files myself, I used WhoCrashed in hopes of some sort of remedy - each crash report would say that the error was due to "ntoskrnl.exe", that the error was likely software-related and that the driver responsible is not identifiable at this time. These BSODs don't happen often enough to really impede my work, but they do occur often enough to be noticeable. I'd say about once a week is the ballpark figure.

Things I've Done to Trouble-Shoot:
1. Memtest (seemingly no issues, ran first 24 hours, ran second 12 hours)
2. Chkdsk /r
3. Driver Verifier (followed this guide for ~48 hours)
4. Re-installed on new SSD
5. Several Safe-Mode Full Viral Scans (Super-AntiSpyware, Malwarebytes, MSE)

Due to the above measures that I've taken, I suspect a hardware issue; but I'd like a more experienced eye at this before I make any radical decisions.

A:Randomly Reoccurring BSOD - ntoskrnl.exe

We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's recently. Here's the information that I've compiled:

There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
- Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard!
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.-
Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.
It's my opinion that SSD's aren't reliable enough (with current hardware) to be used on a system that needs to work reliably. Until I see reliability I will not recommend, nor will I use, SSD's for critical applications.

Ok so the past few days I've been getting excessive amounts of BSODs. I had this issue a few months ago and solved it by system restoring to an earlier time. Idk if it's a driver conflict issue or hardware issue or what I just want my computer to work again :b. It does it at random times, sometimes flash player will crash the BSOD, other times during a Starcraft 2 game, and other times when it is just sitting idle. I tried system restoring, clean installing my NVIDIA drivers, and have used Malwarebytes to scan computer finding nothing.
I attached the zip file required for BSOD threads, thanks for reading my post and hopefully I can solve this with your guys's help.

I recently built my PC(one month roughly). About a couple weeks after I built it I got 2 BSODs in a row in the same day, I ignored it thinking it was a one off. And for a while that seemed to be the case. I got another BSOD however a few days later. Then for 1-2weeks the BSODs went dormant again making me think it was a random bug. However on monday of this week my PC had about 7-8 BSOD restarts, some happening within 10minutes of each other while others happened after a few hours. I had no idea how to fix this problem after google searching and looking at solutions for this ntoskrnl BSOD. However the next day my PC was fine, as it was the next, and the next...until today, where I just experienced a BSOD. I really do not know what it wrong. Nothing comes to mind when I think of what I am doing when the BSODs happen, they happen completely randomly, watching YouTube videos, browsing the internet. I do not know what to do and am really stuck and appreciate any help.

NOTE: the attached file only shows the last 2 BSODs(one from today and the last one from monday) however I can confirm there were many more on Monday as well as before that.

It seems that you either still installed or tried every single antivirus or standalone scanners available ! . There is a chance that clash between those are contributing to the crash.
Here is a summary of AV drivers currently present in your system :

gfibto.sys         - VIPRE Antivirus driver
klflt.sys            - Kaspersky
klif.sys             - Kaspersky

There are also a a number of other drivers related to these programs. Some of them are on demand scanners but may cause clash with AVG and Zone alarm so need to be removed completely.

A:BSOD occurs randomly...ntoskrnl.exe

Hello Steven...

These crashes were caused by memory corruption (probably a driver).
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

2-Driver verifier

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition.
Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is.
But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver.
Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows.
If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

Hello all,

This problem's been plaguing me for a long while now (I think at least since Fall of 2011); my computer will throw BSODs at me at seemingly random times. They seem to occur more frequently when my computer is stressed (gaming, folding), but they also occur when nothing is really happening (leaving my computer on overnight with Chrome open). Since I don't know how to read dump files myself, I used WhoCrashed in hopes of some sort of remedy - each crash report would say that the error was due to "ntoskrnl.exe", that the error was likely software-related and that the driver responsible is not identifiable at this time. These BSODs don't happen often enough to really impede my work, but they do occur often enough to be noticeable. I'd say about once a week is the ballpark figure.

Things I've Done to Trouble-Shoot:
1. Memtest (seemingly no issues, ran first 24 hours, ran second 12 hours)
2. Chkdsk /r
3. Driver Verifier (followed this guide for ~48 hours)
4. Re-installed on new SSD
5. Several Safe-Mode Full Viral Scans (Super-AntiSpyware, Malwarebytes, MSE)

Due to the above measures that I've taken, I suspect a hardware issue; but I'd like a more experienced eye at this before I make any radical decisions.

Hello. I have a Gateway M2624u laptop that I'm trying to fix for a friend. She stated that it was slow, so I reinstalled the OS (Vista Home Premium x64). It was working fine for the two nights I had it, but she then said it started blue screening as soon as it loaded Vista's loading screen. It's been showing that ntoskrnl.exe is the culprit, and I've searched around for the past few days but I can't seem to stop the blue screen from appearing, so I'm turning to you for help. Attached is the dump log. I've done a sfc /scannow and it turned up fine. I'm going to be running a Memtest (again) overnight to see if either 2GB stick is bad.

Edit: I do apologize for posting this in a 'Windows 7' forum, but it's a lot more active. In my opinion, they are identical forums.

A:BSOD with ntoskrnl.exe after POST, randomly when using.

The usual causes for your friends BugChecks are:

Usual causes: Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility

Does your friend use any sort of Backup tool? What Virus scanner was she using all these days?

Please upload the msinfo32.nfo file. To get this:
Click on the Start
Type msinfo32 into the Search programs and files box
When it opens, go to File, Save
Save as msinfo32.nfo and save in a place you will remember

Right click the .nfo file, click send to compressed (zipped) folder

What are the full specs of her computer? What is the age of all the hardware?
Is it under its warranty?

Hi everybody,

I have been experiencing some random BSOD with error 0x0000000a and 0x00000139 caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe. I have run my desktop for 1 year and seldom experienced such BSODs until this month. I have run memtest to 250% coverage and no errors are found. I also have run disk check, furmark, prime95 and still no errors. So I guess my problem should be the softwares. I've reinstalled the windows 8.1 enterprise 64bit and reinstalled all the drivers from msi official website (my motherboard is msi). The problem still persists. Does anyone can help me? Attached is my dump files after the reinstall.
Thank you very much for taking your time reading, I look forward to any comments or opinions.

I recently purchased a Gigabyte R9 290X which i installed into my custom built computer to replace the R9 270X. The previous card ran fine and i had no problems with. Obviously before installing the new card i ran DDU (Display driver uninstaller) to remove the previous drivers. After installing and powering the PC up, i installed the latest catalyst software, pretty sure its 14.9, but since then it randomly blue screens.

I have tried older drivers, MEMtest, checking for faults in my SSD and HDD.

I also ran FurMark at benchmark for 15 minutes to check for over heating etc. and the card ran fine and didnt crash for the entire 15 minutes, it then crashed sitting on the windows start page.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:New GPU causing 'ntoskrnl' BSOD randomly

Most of the BSODs are related to this Stop 0x124, so have alook here:

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

While I know how annoying it is to RMA, I think if you can at all you should because graphic cards are temperamental at their best imo.

Here are some more ideas.
The first thing I would do is check if the extra power supply is definitely connected to the card and working, and that the temps on card are all normal.

Then I would try using verifier.exe to stress the Ati drivers and see if it's them. But I'm not sure on this because say it is the Ati driver- I think it could happen that stressing a different driver causes the Ati one to trip up. Regardless if verifier.exe doesn't cause any problems I think it is then more likely the card has a fault. If verifier.exe does give you the BSOD, I suppose look for updated BIOS of the card and the latest Catalyst.

There are others with similar problem, multiple suggestions on this page:

AMD Support and Game Forums - Sapphire R9 290 BSOD

Here are 2 from there that are probably worth a punt:
"What worked for me...
1. Uninstalled Catalyst Control Center (CCC).
2. Disabled Hardware Acceleration in Adobe Flash (mainly used for YouTube)."

First off I wanna say thank you guys so much in advance.

I was away from my computer when it happened, but it was idle at the time with no applications open to my knowledge. I rebooted without any problems and my system seems to be stable now, but I would like to see if I can prevent this from happening in the future. I recently got a new SSD (corsair force gt - 120GB SATA3) to use as a system disk, and since faultwire said a 0xf4 error is possibly an issue with the boot drive, I'm wondering if that may be the case.

A:BSOD - randomly occurred, 0xf4 and ntoskrnl.exe

Sadly, the f4 BSOD code can mean a variety of things. In my experience, that is the most common error code that windows gives you when it really doesn't know what the problem is. But at least it gave you a file name to work with. ntoskrnl.exe is a core windows file for many services.

Questions: How old is your hardware? Did you buy your components brand new? Have you had blue screens in the past? Has your pc had any viruses/malware on it?

These tips will probably bring up zilch results, but it's worth a shot:

Try running a virus scanner if you suspect any malware on your system. Best ones are:

SUPERAntiSpyware.com | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!
Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download

You can try running some diagnostics on your drives, if you haven't already.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Disk Check

You can also try running memtest, but I don't think the ram is at fault here.

In addition, make sure all your drivers for your hardware are up to date. You can check for updates by going to the Start button > type "devmgmt.msc" without the quotations into the search box > locate your hardware on the left side of the window, expand it by clicking the small arrow next to the hardware's icon, and right-click the entry and select Update Driver Software.

Hello, I've recently upgraded to windows 10 and I've encountered this problem many, many times. I've also done a clean install of Windows 10 afterwards, but the problem persists.

I'm currently on the Asus X550J Laptop, with 8gb ram, i7 4710 processor, Nvidia 850m (That disappears and reappears with crash), and an integrated intel graphics 4600 that stays.

This computer is 1 year old.

Also, there's also a driver that was previously Intel Xeon Processor E3 1200 v3/4th gen PCI Express x16 controller 0C01 that has the error "This device cannot start. (Code 10) An ACPI Power Object failed to transition state". I've went into safe mode and uninstalled it, now it's a PCI Express Root Port with the same problem. Reinstalling it doesn't fix it. This is only in the error mode when my GPU is gone.

I've also done the DDU thing, but still unable to find my GPU yet. I've done this before I clean installed, and reinstalled, but it was still goofed.

please help, I'm panicking

A:BSOD randomly, caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe

Is there any reason why you have not updated to Win8.1 yet? Due to the date of your BIOS, it may not be advisable to update to Win8.1

Only 36 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 160 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Your BIOS dates from 2008. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

C: drive only has about 2% free space. Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on ALL hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty)

So this started a few days ago, BSOD popped up with error code 0x000000f4. After that it popped up more randomly (Doesn't matter if playing a game or being idle or what). I have run diagnostics on my CPU,motherboard,RAM,HDD,SDD, and other hardware and haven't found anything wrong with them yet. I just re-installed windows 7 on my machine literally 1 hour ago. While installing/downloading updates the BSOD popped up again (Same code 0xF4). However this time no mini dump file was created (BSOD hung on initializing disk). This is a relatively new system (Less than 2 years old, built it myself), any help is much appreciated, I'm currently continuing to install updates and service pack 1.
While there was no mini-dump file created, I remember, before the re-install, the previous minidumps were referring to ntoskrnl.exe, if that helps at all. Uploaded the .zip file as required as well, of course it does no include a mini dump file though.

System Specifications::
Motherboard : M5A99X EVO
RAM : Corsair Vengence 4x4GB 1600MHz

Welcome to SevenForums.

You have done the correct thing by attaching the JCGriff file.

ntoskrnl is a catch-all for everything under the sun. BlueScreen can be, but normally is not, helpful.

Hey there,

Thanks in advance for the read and the support but for the life of me I cant find out what's causing this.

I recebtly built a custom rig and everything ran fine until I installed assassins creed V.

The only thing I can think of is maybe Direct x11 is causing this?

I've attached the zipped file from the DM log collector.

Thanks a bunch!

Kind regards

DT have been known to cause problems in windows 7. Please uninstall.

Probably caused by : cdd.dll
I will be honest, I have never seen this one before, but I did some research, and it seems that it may be a RAM issue. So run a RAM - Test with Memtest86+ for atleast 8 passes!

Also lets run a SFC:

Start > Run > CMD >Right Click and Run as administrator > SFC/ SCANNOW

Post back results!

I am getting almost every time I boot W7 the BSOD described in the thread title... I suspect it's related to an automatic task which starts to backup my laptop in the network using TSM, but I think it's unrelated to TSM, it could be more related to a bug of the powershell process (but again, this is just my guess, no clue on this). I post the SF Diagnostic tool output, thanks in advance for any help/hint!!

Is the firmware for your SSD up-to-date?

Check for one and see if the stability returns.

Drive C:

Free Space 9,48 GB (10.174.795.776 bytes)
There's very little free space there. Keep that in mind.
Norton tends to cause BSOD-s and seen it create several issues for users. Recommend uninstalling it with the Norton Removal Tool and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials. See if this stops the BSOD-s.Download and run the Norton Removal Tool to remove the Norton Product
Replace with Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes which are recommended from a strict BSOD perspective. Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated. Microsoft Security Essentials, Free antivirus for windows

Helo, i have been searching but i cant find solution, so hopefully i can get a help here.
What i do with my pc is usually watching movies, watching streaming, browsing, and playing games.
BSOD sometimes happens while im browsing internet/ streaming /youtubing.
Never BSOD on playing games or watching offline movies.

I use a a program to see the minidump dmp file and ntoskrnl.exe always popping up as the culprit.

BSOD has been happening around 5 times in the span of around 1.5 months.

I attached the zip file below, let me know if you need anymore information.


A:BSOD randomly while browsing internet, error ntoskrnl.exe

Hi Melodyazzz,

Welcome to the 8forums..

This is what both most recent dump files are saying.

Probably caused by : memory_corruption

Please follow the instructions below carefully.

Diagnostic Test


Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums


MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

Hello, I am currently experiencing BSOD usually while under load playing CS:GO or WildStar (crashes occur instantly or after a few hours) and I will upload the .dmp files.

-I've tried resetting CMOS as I was previously overclocked.
-I've tried running Memtest to diagnose ram (both sticks were tested separately for ~4 hours)
-I've tried reinstalling Nvidia drivers
-I've tried moving anything plugged into USB 3.0 to 2.0 ports
-I've ran sfc /scannow everything checks out
-I've run any windows updates (Including optional updates)

Any other suggestions would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance!

I have a 6 months old computer and I've been getting BSODs for a few weeks now but it started recently freezing so I'm having to type this from safe mode. I tried fixing the atikmdag.sys BSOD but with no results.

Your AMD display driver is causing issues.

It's not really outdated but you could try updating it to a newer version, not the latest version though.

Hi all,

Before I start, I have resolved the dump file 042415, which was a PSU issue. The other two were the ones I have been getting, namely ntoskrnl.exe error. in the blue screen it said machine-check exception.

I have all the updated drivers. just installed windows 7 again (to fix the previous nvlddmkm.sys issue). New power supply too.

It happened first time while playing Batman - Origins, I was initially testing to see if I would get the nvlddmkm.sys error, which usually happens within 1 min of the game, it was going fine for like half hour until i got a new BSoD error. The second time was just watching a game promo video on steam.

Again due to fixing the previous nvlddmkm.sys error I've done desk checks (chkdsk). memory tests etc etc. Just for additional info.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Welcome to 7F.

Two of your dumps are 0x9C which are no longer supported from Vista upwards and should be treated as a 0x124. 0x124 is a hardware error, but rarely give us any information to work with and the 0x9C gives little information in this instance.

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

BugCheck 9C, {0, fffff80004556bb0, 0, 0}

Probably caused by : intelppm.sys ( intelppm!C1Halt+2 )

Followup: MachineOwner
However your other dump in the log is a 0x116 VIDEO_TDR_ERROR (Timeout Detection Recovery) which denotes a problem with your GPU be it drivers, heat, power to the card or the card itself among other reasons.

My Laptop randomly got a BSOD a few days ago and it has continued since. The laptop is just over two years old. I tried a system restore but it didn't solve the problem. The BSOD happens no matter what I am doing and sometimes the laptop reboots or freezes instead. Safe mode works perfectly. I tried memtest86 which showed no errors and ran for five passes. Bluescreenview showed ntoskrnl.exe consistently in each dump report. Diagnostics in attachment below. Please help. Thanks in advance.

A:Toshiba laptop randomly gets BSOD caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe

Welcome to the forum.

Lets start with Driver verifier:

As the dump is indicating memory corruption test your memory using Memtest86 for 8 passes:
