Bug check description: This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.

Conclusion

1 crash dumps have been found and analyzed.
Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

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

Any advice how to fix that? And the reason for the blue screen? Thanks in advance.

This is a brand new computer (I'm reusing my ram and PSU both of which are about 3 years 9 months old) and I got a blew BSOD today.  It was a 0x0000003b win32k.sys file.  I assume this is a driver crash.  Can someone help me check which issue it is?
 
This happened when I was shuting down my computer.  with firefox, starcraft 2 and a HWmonitor, ASUS tweak/monitor on, and a folder opened.)
 
Edit:  I updated my video card driver to the latest one as well as getting SP1 for windows 7.  Hopefully this will do the trick.

Hi.

I have been getting this BSOD pretty frequently (it's getting more frequent by the day) over the last few months. It didn't start happening with any notable event. I didn't get any new hardware and I believe all my drivers are updated.

Dear Support,

I have been taking random BSOD last 2 months. In many occasions it starts while being in-game for a while, or while browsing in Modzilla at at the same time. I have been trying to solve this issue for some time now. I updated nearly everything, re-installed Windows 7 64 bit 2 times already, memory checks all fine. These problems started after Windows XP was replaced by Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit on this console. With Windows XP I had never any problems.

In the first 2 months of this year I had no BSOD at all. It all started halfway March. In the same month NVIDIA released GeForce Driver 335.23. I have still no clue if this Driver was and still is causing it. After a fresh Windows install the PC will run alright for some weeks maybe a month. At one moment I will get BSOD every 2-3 days. Soon it will change to once a day. Then it will be like 1-5 random each day. I have tried nearly everything.

BSOD 0x0000003b, Win32k.sys, ntorkrnl.exe are causing the crashes. Windows Support however offers a dozen of different HOTFIXES for this issue. I do not know which one to take, or if any would work.

I have added the File: ENIGMA-wo_04-06-2014_103437,77.zip as requested.

Cheers,
FunsBuns

Remove Avast and replace with MSE.

Microsoft Security Essentials is recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other internet security software. Malwarebytes is a great combo to MSE. They are free and lightweight.

Also uninstall your existing Antivirus software before you install MSE.

Good and Free system security combination.

Hey guys,

I'm having some issues with a newly built . I've now recieved two (2) 0x03b BSOD's both citing different files as the culprit. I had a previous issue with the system randomly rebooting, but I remedied this by increasing my VTT voltage to 1.15 because I have 16gb of memory.

It ran perfectly after that for about 2 weeks, then the BSOD's started.

They happen randomly, when just web surfing or idle, and they don't seem to be caused by stressing the system.

I was successfully able to run multiple stress tests like Prime95, Intel Burn-In, for 24 hours with no issues, but then will get a BSOD randomly surfing the web or just having the PC be idle.

I've attached my error files and minidump files according the thread stickied, hopefully you guys might be able to point me in the right direction for firguring out the issue.

Thanks!

System specs:

Intel i5 2500k
2x MSi 560 Ti Twin Frozr II in SLi
ASuS P8p67-Deluxe Motherboard.
16gb G.Skill DDR3 Ram
Corsair 750W TX Enthusiast PSU.
Windows 7 X64 Ultimate Retail

My system is not overclocked, all drivers are updated, all windows updated are applied, and BIOS is on the latest firmware.

Temperatures aren't the issue either I don't believe., I've been monitoring them with MSi Afterburner and Realtemp.

I've seen various threads suggesting resolving this by removing firewall software. However, I'm not running any security software except Microsoft Security Essentials.

I suspect it may have something to do with the webcam (a Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000), but it's hard to tell because the blue screen is intermittent, and the webcam definitely works fine.

Minidump files attached.

   Note
Renaming drivers: create a restore point, using Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers or to wherever the driver is located, locate the driver files, and rename them from .sys to .old. Reboot and the drivers will not load. This will break whatever software or hardware these drivers are associated with those two drivers.

My computer has been doing this a lot recently and its started doing it more often, usually the 0x0000003b code pops up when either windows media player is on or when it is stood idle for a while. Using NirSoft's bluescreen viewer it stating that the ntoskrnl.exe is the problem in all minidumps, it also sometimes states nvator64.sys is the other file that causes the bluescreen. i have attached the minidumps to this and hopefully someone will tell me how to fix it, i have checked online and gathered it down to these 3 options... either my PSU is not powerful enough to support the payload, my HDD is corrupt or the RAM is stating to fail. Thank you for the people who can help! as a side note, i have tried formatting and reinstalling my windows 7 64bit ultimate, but the BSOD can appear on setup and did at one point so i had to renew the whole setup, recently it has started doing it a lot more. one happened not too long ago and also had the CDD.dll file as an error.

Hello All Experts,
I have a vostro 1500 laptop orginally came with win xp professional sp2 64 bit. I did a CLEAN install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Everything went fine but now it keeps crashing with BSOD win32k.sys

I uploading the dump folder and PERFMON html file (zip folders) as adviced. I have just installed Windows 7 Ulitmate 64 bit a week ago.

I am scared that if this doesnt get fixed I might loose my work. If this cant be fixed I am willing to go back to Win XP professional 64 bit.

Please help me out experts. I appreciate it

some system info:
original OS : Windows Xp Professional SP2 64 bit
current OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Ram: 3GB
Hard drive : 320 GB

A:BSOD with win32k.sys

Is there a reason on why you are switching from 32bit to 64bit?
Unfortunately, the Dell website does not provide drivers for the 64bit version - I suggest that you do a clean install again and have it 32bit.

These drivers cannot be updated until it is switched to 32bit.

A:Win32k.sys Bsod Help

Does this ring any bells? PROCESS_NAME: ???????AAlso, the stack text appears a bit messed up (too many of the same addresses). Did you use the 64 bit version of the debugger to analyze the dump file? Or it could just be my lack of experience with 64 bit dump files Since it refers to win32k.sys - does this belong to a process on the system that's emulating a 32 bit OS? Although I don't know, I wonder if the 64 bit versions use win32k.sys - shouldn't it be win64k.sys? (just guessing on my part - don't have a 64 bit OS to look at)FWIW - this link http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0x50 states that it's usually a memory problem, although other things (such as drivers) can cause it. I'd try running Memtest86 - http://www.memtest86.com/

Hello,

As of recently I have been having issues with BSOD's. Up to this point I have only had it happen to me twice, but I would still like to fix this issue so that it does not happen anymore. The first BSOD was about two weeks ago or so, and I just got another one today. Both times the exact same thing came up on the screen, and after reveiwing the minidump file with bluescreen viewer, I found out the problem was in the win32k.sys file. Other than this, I really do not know what to do. I have looked in different topics throughout different forums, and each one says something different, so I figured I would try to get some help here.

The system I am using is a Sony VAIO notebook, only 3 months old and it is running windows 7 home premium x64 (pre-installed). One thing that I repeatedly came across was the suggestion of using memtest to help solve the issue, but as I understand you need a blank disc to do this am I correct? If so, I do not have any. One of the main problems is that I am off at school, and do not have installation discs with me right now, so I am hoping I am not going to need to uninstall something like my mouse or whatever, because I would need to wait a little bit in order to re-install it.

Anyways, sorry for the jumbled information, I hope that someone is able to help me out here. I have attached the zip file below.

I've run the latest memtest for about 14 hours (didn't realise it kept going until you stop it) and it didn't find any faults.

Another point is that it always happens whilst I'm editing, I use the computer for a lot of other demanding tasks, effects creation etc and sometimes games and it never happens during those.
There seem to be a lot of 08E errors around and I don't know if theyre all the same or what so I thought I'd better get some direct advice.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello guys. Since i upgraded to windows 7 ultimate x64 (clean install) i keep taking a frustrating BSOD about win32k.sys. Besides i can't find tuner driver (winfast tv 2000 xp deluxe) this bsod makes me think seriously of returning to Xp Sp3. Usually i noticed that this error occurs when i have a game minimized and i chat on yahoo messenger. (especially when i have CS in taskbar or lineage 2). My system specs are:
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
Intel E8200 2.66 Ghz
4 GB RAM (4x 1GB Kingmax KLED48F-A8KI5 at 1066 Mhz - these are OC to 1066 as they run at 800 standard, and timings are modified 5-5-5-15 with +0.2 V from 1.8 to 2.0).
Seagate 320 GB Sata II
Winfast Nvidia 8600 GT which also causes some problems as once in a while BSOD is about cdd.dll when i exit games and temperatures of GPU reach easily 70 degrees dunno why. Sometimes windows 7 says that nvidia driver has stopped responding and recovered.

So what could be the problem guys? It's rly frustrating. I attach to this message 2 minidumps if they can help. Thx in advance.

Later edit: I mention that i had run memtest86+ for 2 hours without any problems and i posted this after a lot of searching documentation on Google. Some people say it might be a hardware problem. Well why windows xp hadn't crashed and windows 7 does if it's hardware? If it was hardware problem all systems would have been unstable. Anyway it could be because of OC.

A:BSOD - win32k.sys

Someone else can address your blue screen issues and dump files, but I do have a question for you.

---------------------------------------------------------

Why are you running Windows 7 Professional SP1 32-bit in your computer with 8 GB of RAM?

A 32-bit version of Windows won't make use of more than 3.25 - 3.5 GB, so there's no point in having more than 4 GB in the computer.

In some cases, having more than 4 GB in the computer will cause a 32-bit operating system to make use of less RAM.

That appears to be the case in your computer because your log shows it's making use of only 2.92 GB.

Anytime Windows says there is a PAGE or DATA error then the problem is almost certainly a memory issue.

Had this crash some 10 minutes ago which was tightly followed by another crash minutes later.

Computer specs:
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.110622-1506) Full Retail
System Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
System Model: EP43-DS3L
BIOS: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9650 @ 3.00GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.0GHz
Memory: 4096MB RAM
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti
Driver Version: 8.17.12.8562

None of my components are overclocked in any way.

First crash is 22370-01. Just before the crash I was watching a movie on my main screen and was opening a new tab in firefox. A while earlier my graphic drivers had crashed and reset. I was running BOINC manager which tends to take up a lot of CPU although I've capped it at 50% and a couple of hours earlier I had updated Itunes which wanted to restart to afterwards.

Second crash, 21028-01 was maybe three to five minutes after I had rebooted from the first crash. I was watching another a different movie whilst browsing the web for information on my BSOD.

I'm using Windows Media Player Classic for my movies with the CCCP codec pack although it would be weird if that started to cause problems now since I've used it for a really long time without any problems.

I might also mention that I've had my graphic drivers crash and reset previously but never before a BSOD.

Hello,

I have quite suddenly been getting frequent BSOD's. It only flashes for a moment but one of the more recent times I did catch the win32k.sys referenced in it. The only thing out of the normal that has started in concurrence with this is Mozilla Firefox is crashing all the time now. Any help would be appreciated. I have attached the requested TSF_Vista_Support Folder but the Performance Monitor would not generate a report for me. After running the tests, it stated Error: An error occured while attempting to generate the report. The wait for the report generation tool to finish has timed out.

Hi -

There were no dump files in the attached zip. Please check \windows\minidump - copy all out to TSF_Vista, zip & attach to next post.

I did look through the other files and see many "Live Kernel Events", which are just 1 step below an actual BSOD. Live Kernel Events + win32k.sys usually are indicative of an issue with video transitioning from user mode (win32k) into kernel code territory.

I also noticed in WERCON the repeated crashing of this app since November 2009 -

I have a custom built PC that is running windows XP. The original problem I am suppose to be fixing is a disk read error prior to windows loading. I performed a check disk and did some other maintenance procedures. This seemed to work for a few days. Then I got the disk read error message back again. I decided to do a repair install of XP. This worked for 1 day and then problems started. I got a BSOD and it told me win32k.sys, kernal inpase error, 0X0000007A. After I got this BSOD and loaded back up windows took 10 min to load up. Now that I am in windows it is malfunctioning big time. It is running incredibly slow, the desktop icons disappear and come back again. I read that this error is typical of bad RAM, or a windows installation gone bad. I am going to run memtest to test the RAM. What else should I try to determine the problem. I cannot use the system like it is right now? Thanks for the help?

A:BSOD/ Win32k.sys

Remove the hard drive...attach it to a second system as a secondary drive, run chkdsk /r on that drive or any partitions on it.

If this cannot be done, I would run the appropriate hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic on the drive...actually, I would do that regardless of the previous suggestion.

Hopefully I can detail this out as much as possible.

Recently, my virus scanner told me that win32k.sys had a virus, and it cleaned it out. Now, my computer shuts down randomly, and whenI boot up, I get the BSOD sayong there's an error with win32k.sys. This only happens when I boot up normally, but in safe mode I run fine. Is there a way to run a diagnostic on the file or such? I might be able to retreive the exact error codes if needed.

It would help if you had the error number, probably 0x0000008E.

Have you tried replacing the driver from the XP CD? Do you have an XP CD?

For awhile now I've been getting the BSoD on my computer. It's a Dell XP Inspiron 530S with Service Pack 2 (well at least I think it's SP2). Sometimes, although rarely, it happens at random. Mostly, its occurances are predictable.

For example:
-A friend of mine downloaded a video game onto my PC. It worked for the first two or so weeks, then when I loaded it up I got blue screened. Now the game, or any game that I download, will not play at all because of the BSoD.
-It also occurs when I try to set my screen resolution from 800x600 to 1024x768, or any other resolution. In fact, it is so predictable that in order to write down the information listed below, I initiated the BSoD by trying to set resolution.
-Finally, I get the BSoD when my computer goes to sleep mode (standby). I log back onto the computer and no matter what I click on next, I get the BSoD. It happens everytime.

Listed below is exactly what the BSoD read (minus the help advice given by the computer):

----------

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: Win32k.sys

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

I've recently reinstalled XP Home on a customer's computer. He is now getting BSODs after leaving it idle for 15 mins -1 hour. He was having some filesystem related troubles earlier (following the reinstall) but I think I have those resolved. He reports seeing BSODs during those troubles, but doesn't remember the exact message. Since I (probably) took care of the filesystem problem, the BSODs have only been coming during idle periods - so far anyway. I'm currently typing this on the computer in question.

Here's some of the information from the BSOD:

KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR

STOP:0x0000007A (followed by a few other memory addresses)

(something) win32k.sys (something)

I've turned off the screensaver on the unlikely chance that might be the trouble. I'm about to run a memory test, and after that, load up Knoppix and do a dd if=/dev/urandom | gzip -c >> /dev/null to see if I can cause some cpu-usage problems. Any other ideas?
 

A:BSOD on win32k.sys

So far I've run adaware and avg (more killing time than hoping it'll fix anything). Run memtest86 - no problems, as expected.

I've turned off the screensaver and put on service pack 2. I haven't had any BSODs while I've been here - check the timestamp. I've decided to forego the cpu intensive thing. I'm thinking of just leaving it at that - give it a week, if no BSODs turn screensaver back on. Any other ideas?

Hello all, I'm new to the forum. Upon reading about somewhat similar issues, I decided to just post mine, as I didn't happen to see anything that matched my problem exactly. inb4 "this has been answered 2039424 times," I am deeply sorry, but I didn't see it. :-/

Onward!

Okay, so I just recently got a BSOD for your "typical" System_Service_Exception, and I ran memtest86 immediately to make sure it wasn't the memory (as that has been the case before). The dump is included herein. iTunes was actively running at the time, which the dump appears to indicate, and something about win32k.

I asked the oracle (Google) and found a few potential solutions, but most pertaining to memory failure. Anyway, enough rambling. Just wanted to be clear.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Hi All,

Just had a BSOD while defragging my windows drive using Defraggler. Possible contributory factor CCleaner used to clean out various temporary files (not registry).

Files are attached.

Subsequent chkdsk and sfc /scannow ran clean.

A:BSOD Win32k.sys

Hello,

This is not the customary BSOD-analyst thing to say, but I suggest you forget about this one. I have seen BSODs occur during Defraggler and other defragmentation programs before, I haven't learned why yet.

The dump doesn't mention anything of significance, other than Defraggler was "on top" at the time of the crash; we knew that already though.

I see some drivers that could use an update, but I'd be surprised if they were the cause of this.

My advice: stick with the Windows defragment tool, and if you get more BSODs, we'll go from there. Trying to troubleshoot this one is more work than I'm sure is worth to you.
