BSOD when gaming, mainly errors 0x0000001e and 0x00000050

Q: BSOD when gaming, mainly errors 0x0000001e and 0x00000050

Hey there, I've been getting BSOD whenever I put a considerable load on my pc. It occurs mainly when I'm playing a game but sometimes it happens like when I'm converting files and have a bunch of tabs open in chrome.
I keep the graphics card drivers up to date and performed a clean install on the last one which was ~2 weeks ago, but the problem still persists. I also moved the memory sticks to different slots but that didn't really change much either.
I'm starting to think it's a memory problem, but as I'm still rather new to diagnosing bluescreens, I'm not really sure and would like a second opinion before I spring for a new set of sticks.
Thanks for reading

Preferred Solution: BSOD when gaming, mainly errors 0x0000001e and 0x00000050

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: BSOD when gaming, mainly errors 0x0000001e and 0x00000050

I would do a memory test using the steps in the following link:

Diagnosing memory problems on your computer

And yes; i believe you are right; it does sound like issue with one or more sticks; and/or one or more possible ram slots/connectors.

While the system is at idle or just light use I get the BSOD. It happens once a day and there seems to be no trigger. Core temps are at normal and run about 40 Celsius. I have tried updating most of my drivers through the device manager and will run a memtest soon. Any and all help is much appreciated, thank you!

Here's a thread in which this problem was addressed on Tom's Hardware (it led me here.)

Forum used earlier: Multiple Errors Causing BSOD on Windows 10 - Windows 10

Dump Files: DESKTOP-R4SHO1O-21_10_2016_171444,19.zip

I play Battlefield 1 (now!) [BF1] and Rainbow Six Siege [R6S] pretty regularly. I used to have BSOD issues with R6S pretty regularly, but now I don't have them except for once and a while, so I got a bit lazy; but, now that BF1 is out, I have a BSOD, on average, every 5 minutes or so (in game, of course, not outside.)

Colif (the guy who helped me out on the other forum) said that the issues were all driver related (at the time.)

Dear experts,

after just too many days of troubleshooting (please disregard the former thread) I decided to flash the BIOS, then re-format my SSD and re-install Windows 7 including all drivers the device manager asked for. Apart from BlueScreenView, SF Diagnostic Tool, 7zip and Dropbox, I installed/ran no other software or drivers. Windows update shows me that Windows is updated. I have currently only one bar of 8GB RAM installed; I have a 4-bar 16GB and a 2-bar 16GB kit available that ran fine in an identical PC. The QVL from Asus is from 2011 and outdated; the recommended RAM is no longer commercially available.

Do I need a new processor, mainboard or RAM? A new PC? I sincerely hope not the latter!

I have attached the output from the SF Diagnostic Tool as required. What should I proceed with?

Thanks in advance for any insights!

A:BSOD 0x0000000a 0x0000001e 0x00000050 0x0000003b

I downloaded and installed one additional software, IntelProcessorDiagnosticTool and ran it. Result: Another old chap reared its ugly head - the BSOD 0x00000124 where the BSOD display freezes and thus no minidump is being written - I have to push the reset-button each time this particular BSOD occurs.

I mean, being a useless user, I can't tell shit from shinola as far as PCs are concerned, but does this indicate a hardware fault? Such as mainboard, memory or processor?

How can I pinpoint what it is, so at least I know what, in the worst case, I have to buy anew?

I had more bsd, but I think the 0x3b and 0xd1 are fixed. Any help would be appreciated. This is so frustrating. If its hardware related, I need help figuring out what. All my parts are new from newegg except for gpu and processor. I don't think its my ram because I swapped out different ram from my old pc and got same errors and that ram works flawless in other pc. Ran sfc scan now and chk disk and no errors. I am uploading the files you requested posted in instructions.

The last 4 .dmp files point to a possible RAM problem. The only way to check that is to run a minimum of 8 consecutive passes of Memtest86+ as described here:

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

It is not sufficient to install the RAM into a different system as a test.

I've been having random inconsistent BSOD on my new computer (built it last spring).

Sometimes it runs things perfectly normal, other times it will crash at start or after and hour of play.

Also the system will lock up for about 30 secs when I first boot up windows, but it will run normally after this. It will do this during some games as well.

-All new hardware, and have run Memory tests, and even RMA'd the RAM, which they replaced, and the motherboard which was tested and sent back with no issue.

It's getting frustrating as I can't seem to narrow down what is causing the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:BSOD 0x00000050 - Usually while gaming - not always though

Have you tried applying a slight Over Clock to your 2D clocks?
I've read lots of posts of similar issues being temporarily solved (hopefully until the next driver updates) by increasing idle 2d clocks to ~1.5x idle speeds. Mine is idle at 300 mhz, so I bumped mine to 450 mhz. This would depend on your individual card though.
Personally, my system was freezing lots. In addition to 2d clock oc, I had to increase my Vcore voltages slightly as well, ~30 to ~50 MVolts.
Look into Asus GPU Tweak or MSI Afterburner software as possible oc adjustment programs.

My PC has taken to randomly BSOD while gaming (never had it BSOD when simply browsing). I'm hoping it's just a simple driver problem but I don't know which one. I've googled this problem and tried to rule some things like mem testing and removing certain drivers here and there but obviously not the right ones.

I never had a BSOD before installing SWTOR, a new mouse and a new keyboard. I'm guessing one of these things are to blame.

Now some specs:

Aspire M3910
Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU 550 @ 3.20 GHZ 3.20 GHz
64-bit Operating System

Has the original OS installed
I've bought it nearly 1 years and a 5 months ago.
I recently reinstalled the OS again after so many BSOD hoping it would fix it. I'm guessing this would have increased out of date drivers but updating as much as I can.
Zip file attached.
I believe that's everything that is needed, if you do need more info just ask.

Thank you for your time

A:BSOD while gaming, error 0x0000001e

Perfmon shows a problem with a PS2 mouse. If you're using a USB mouse it's safe to ignore this message.

You have a NETGEAR WNDA3200 Wireless 11N Dual-band USB Adapter
Win7 doesn't like these devices and will BSOD with them, particularly if using older (Vista) drivers
Here's my rant about them:

I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Win7 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

Why are you using this device when you have wireless built into the laptop?
This is the built in device: Realtek RTL8190 802.11n Wireless LAN (Mini-)PCI NIC

Your wireless USB adapter drivers date from 2008. Please:
- download a fresh copy of the latest Win7 drivers from the NetGear website. DO NOT use Vista drivers - if no Win7 drivers are available, get a new device (use the built in wireless card in the meantime)!
- uninstall the current drivers
- install the freshly downloaded drivers
- monitor for further BSOD's

FYI - the dumps see to point to a hardware issue, and the most likely issue is the drivers for the wireless USB device. If this doesn't stop the BSOD's, post back and we'll start working on hardware diagnostics.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. Bought as a student upgrade edition online. The computer is mostly new.
I put it together myself and it hasn't had any problems until now. I had League of Legends up in the background, and I was surfing on Firefox when my mouse cursor...changed. It looks glitchy, becoming white/multicolored lines and looking fuzzy. I know that isn't right, so I immediately restarted my computer. After a few minutes it BSOD'ed, and now I am officially worried.

Right Click My Computer/Computer
Click Manage
Click Device Manager from the list on the left
Expand Mice and other pointing devices
Right click the device
Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)

Hey guys!

New to seven forums so i apologies if i am doing this incorrect, I recently re-installed windows on my computer and did a full fresh install due to my hard-drive getting too full! Since then i have re-installed my gaming collection mostly through steam, and since then i have been receiving multiple BSOD's a day but usually only when im playing graphically demanding games.

Im no pro at this but my first thought was the RAM so i ran windows memory diagnostics and it came back clean, I have my minidump files and have attached them, if there is any other information i am leaving out please get back to me and i will give you all that i can, Really appreciate it if one of you gods among men could have a look at this and help me resolve this issue!

Hi -

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Memory diagnostics and Memtests are not reliable. The problem may be very well with memory but the tools would not catch it. You would have to try a new RAM kit (or borrow) in order to rule out faulty RAM.

Please follow what's asked in this quote:

Go to your BIOS and tell us what the CPU, RAM and the CPU integrated memory controller voltages (QPI/DRAM core voltage) are set at.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial in order to rule out the faulty stick.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

This has been happening ever since I bought my PC 2 years ago. I've taken it to a lot of technicians several times who ran hardware tests and found nothing, thus weren't able to diagnose the problem. It keeps happening even after I've formatted it multiple times. It crashes mostly while gaming, but sometimes when I'm simply browsing the web too. either it freezes with colored bars on the screen or a blue screen happens (mostly the latter). also it's mostly 0x0000001e or 0x0000003b

im not sure what this bump contains though, but this is what mostly happened before the format.

Hi Guys,

Recently I've got these two BSOD errors on my brothers computer. They've both only happened once but from past experience I've discovered that if you get a BSOD once your probably gonna keep getting it until you resolve it. The computer's not overclocked and I haven't installed any new drivers recently and I've had this computer for about 2 years with no problems before about a month ago. This is my brother's computer so the specs listed in my profile are not for this computer. I'll post the specs for this PC below.

The two files it says are responsible are win32k.sys and nvBridge.kmd. By the second one, I'm guessing it might have something to do with the graphics card but I''m not sure. I've attached the dump files for you guys to have a look at. I would really appreciate if one of the tech savy guys here could help me with this issue. Thanks

I've recently had a few alarming issues with my PC, the most recent ones relating to BSODs. The first BSOD was an error '0x0000003b'. According to Bluescreenview, it had something to do with my Nvidia drivers. This happened when I was running ModernWarfare 2 in the background, Skype, Google and VLC media player. This was about 2 or 3 days ago. I once again had a BSOD today. This time, it was an error '0x00000050' and had something to do with Direct X. It happened shortly after I exited Modern Warfare 2 and had Skype, Google chrome and VLC media player running. I have not tried any heavy games like BF4 or Watch Dogs recently, but they played fine a few weeks ago.
Some extra details: Very recently, a little over a week ago, I had changed a BIOS setting (disabled legacy booting) after which my PC did not turn on. It gave 3 beeps. I had removed one stick of RAM and my Graphics card, and flashed the BIOS, after which it ran fine. I decided to re-install Windows. I had lost my Windows 8 disk, so used Windows 7 instead. This fairly new installation of Windows 7 seems to be causing a problem. Also, I tried doing a Memory Diagnosis of Windows. I do not believe it found any errors. Another interesting note is that several games have crashed on my old installation of Windows 8 due to my Graphics driver not responding or some Direct X error, but it never caused any BSODs.

This will be my first post on the Win7 forums, so please excuse me for sounding like a bit of a newbie.
Starting about 3 weeks ago, I began receiving BSOD's with the stop code: 0x0000001E. After having my computer checked by the Geek Squad in Best Buy, they couldn't really tell me what the issue was but were pretty certain it was a driver issue. They also did a full system diagnostic and my hardware was determined not to be the issue. This lead to them uninstalling and reinstalling the video card (Nvidia Geforce GTX 560) and they had me on my way. But to no avail for last night, when I was gaming, (Borderlands co-op) I received a BSOD with the pre-mentioned code. I copied down the code, and restarted my computer. Like every time before, (this was 3 BSOD's in total) I noticed that my Wireless USB Adapter (Linksys AE2500 Dual-Band) was not recognized upon start-up and was quite hot to the touch. I disconnected and reconnected the device, which worked. To make a long story short, I have basically pinned the issue down to my wireless adapter. But what does everyone think? Would this diagnosis make sense? I uninstalled and re-installed the adapter driver, but does is this enough? Thank you in advance for any help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Dear forumers,

I would like to enlist your kind assistance in arresting my BSOD issue. I get all 3 BSOD errors throughout the day and while doing different things. the 0x00000050 error is usually when trying to install SP1 (I have a thread open in the windows updates section) and it errors out.

The other two errors happen randomly when either running software like malware bytes and/or Windows defender.

Attached is the zip file as per the SevenForum guide's instructions

Hi mshatkus.

As there are multiple bugcheck codes, it would be better to Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

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

Also, as the uploaded zip does not contain it, upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.

My computer has been hanging about 2 or 3 times a week without generating a blue screen. The mouse and keyboard fail to respond (including Caps Lock and Num Lock keys). On rare occasions such as last night, I will get a BSOD. I am uploading my files in accordance with the posting instructions and am hoping that someone can give me some insight as to possible resolutions. I have had several issues since purchasing this computer and have almost reached the point of sending it back to the manufacturer (which would result in me losing all my installed programs of course when they wipe the system), but would like to attempt fixing the issues one last time. In addition to the BSOD files, I have added my Event Viewer Logs to this posting.

Thank you to anyone whom can assist in this matter.

Could really use some help in determining what's amiss. The crashes seem to randomly occur, at least nothing that I can pin point. I also tend to think this may be cause by both drivers and hardware as on at least two occasions the computer would not restart. When powered on, it failed post and went into a series of rapid beeps. I don't believe heat is an issue but it has taken awhile before I'm able to get it to reboot on those two occasions. I've read the posting rules and I believe all of the system info is listed on my profile and hopefully I've uploaded the dump file. but please let me know if I've missed something or there is additional information required.
Thanks in advance!

So I would suggest you to get rid of the nvidia elements and use windows system native elements.

I was receiving constant blue screens throughout the month of December, and after having replaced my HDD and RAM (which didn't fix the problem) I RMA'd my processor back to AMD. I received the new processor in early January and went a full month without any problems. As of a few days ago the bluescreens have returned in full force.

At this point I'm thinking it's a problem with the motherboard. But I'm posting here to make sure before I try to RMA something again.

While I wait for a reply I will run memtest and a HDD diagnostic.

EDIT: Also, I think it's worth noting that motherboard does not seem to be able to provide a steady current to the Vcore. If I set the Vcore to 1.35, it will fluctuate between 1.32-1.35.

A:BSOD errors seem to be related to memory, codes include : 0x0000001e

I don't mean to break any rules by bumping my own thread, but I'd just like to add that, after a blue screen I usually fail to boot a few times in a row. Once I tried to boot into safe mode immediately following a blue screen, and I got screen "tearing" sort of at the top and the computer froze. I would assume this indicates a hardware problem.

Had a BSOD on Sunday. Took the sides off the computer to find the heatsink caked in dust. Cleared that out with some compressed air and seemed to do the trick just fine. Computer fan running much quieter too then.

All fine on Monday and then cranked the PC up this evening and BSOD again. Couldn't get Windows to start, so tried removing RAM and then removing all hard drives except my boot drive containing Windows. Set up is SSD with Windows on, second SSD with programs on, HDD for files and data and second HDD for backup; that set up has been running fine for some time.

Have managed to get Windows to load and no BSOD currently, with three drives plugged in and the main HDD for data NOT plugged in. Not sure if that drive is the common problem.

Some BSOD messages I have seen, before it vanishes, include PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and REGISTRY_ERROR and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

Any help and advice much appreciated. The diagnostic data was run without said HDD plugged in.

Brief update.....
PC still running but trying to shut down, I get a Windows Explorer has stopped working error, as below. Could this be linked to the other drive not being plugged in?

Hi all.

I've had some BSoD's in what is almost 2 years with this rig, but recently I've been having a wave of BSoD highs and lows. I have Windows 7 Professional x64 (w/SP1).

I usually get them during gaming. My computer used to essentially restart itself randomly without a BSOD--at which point the monitor may or may not come on. Other times it crashes/freezes leaving me with an annoying little error code. In diagnosing the situtation, I have done:
Dusted computer. Re-seated cards/memory.
Multiple MemTests, Chkdsk and virus scans.
Sfc /scannow (multiple times; I'm paranoid)
Reinstalled video drivers.
Replaced Avast with MSE.
Updated ASACPI.sys and rid myself of sptd.sys.
Fresh install of Win7.
Ran Driver Verifier (Ironically, the computer didn't freeze then. It was just really slow during gaming. Haven't done one since the fresh OS install)
Other stuff I may have forgotten.

What may also help is that I have gotten two incidences of 0x0000428 when trying to boot and a 0xc0000001 error after loading the files from my install disc (an attempt to repair). After giving up and restarting the system two hours later, it booted.

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong on anything. Dump should be in this post. I lurk forums way more than I tend to post, but I'd like multiple angles here. Any replies would be great appreciated.

A:BSoD's mostly during gaming. Various errors.

Welcome aboard.

The recent crashes are caused by Ntfs.sys. What you are to do is :
Reseat the sata and power.
Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
If you are using a SSD, update the firmware.
Let us know the results.

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to 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 earlie... Read more

I started getting BSOD yesterday when I was playing RaiderZ, however it didn't save the minidump for that error. Recently the graphics driver has stopped working but recovered when watching videos on YouTube, but that results in the green video problem. Not sure if thats related to this... - Today I got BSOD from watching a video on YouTube (not HD) and then another BSOD from playing RaiderZ. So far I have rolled back the beta driver of my GPU to the stable version. Re-seated my GPU. Scanned for virus'. Ran several disk checks (No errors). I have seen someone saying to uninstall GPU driver then restart PC and get latest driver. But I'd rather ask for your help here If you need anything else please let me know!

Ok so I've been getting multiple different BSOD's lately on my computer and they almost exclusively occur during gaming. Only noticed when I play WoW but thats the only game i play on this machine.

They don't happen at any particular time while playing though... It can be a few minutes into playing or an hour... and sometimes i don't get any errors at all for days. Its very sporadic.

Anyways I've gone through and update all my drivers, even done a fresh install of XP, and also have replaced the power supply because i thought that was the original problem as to why I was getting all the errors. And I cant really seem to nail the problem down because it seems to be a different error every other time.

Heres a list of some of the errors i've written down:

Along with these errors I've seen

I know I dont have these documented very well but thats what I've been trying to work with here. Like I said there isn't any consistency as to when these errors appear while I play WoW but I'm getting so frustrated because I cant figure out if this is a hardware or software problem!

Morning bump

Hi everyone,

As I mentioned in the title, I have been experiencing the BSOD multiple times with a different error each time. This seems to occur only when I am playing a PC game. The issue first occurred after playing Fallout 4 for about a week. Since then, the crashes have continued to occur even with less GPU intensive games. This PC was built within the past couple months so all the components are relatively new. I initially thought that the problem was with the graphics card but after having a friend look at it and put it through the FurMark Stress Test, he believed it was fine. That being said, I'm not sure what the issue is but I will include the minidump files below so that someone with more experience can analyze the issues and maybe determine a cause/solution.

Thanks everyone for your help. (This is my first time posting on here so if I need to include any more information or details feel free to let me know)

A:Multiple Different BSOD Errors while gaming

The latest dump I see in the zip file you uploaded is from 7/11 which is quite awhile ago.
Are you not having BSODs now? If you are, are you running any disk cleanup software like CCleaner? If you are, please don't use it until this is resolved as it may be deleting the newer dump files we need to investigate this problem.

I'll look at some of the older ones but would like to see the most recent if possible.

I've been getting BSOD's quite a lot recently. It only seems to happen while gaming.
I put in a new graphics card a couple of weeks ago, the one I took out was fairly old so I couldn't play many games with it.
I've been looking at the error codes but I don't think it's the same one every time, and I've no real idea of what I'm looking at any way.

I ran memtest for 4 or 5 hours yesterday with no errors, from what I've read since, I should run it for longer, so I'll do that tonight.

Hey there.

Basically the entire system runs fine - Outside of gaming.
Video - Fine
Music/Audio - Fine
Image processing (PS/Lightroom etc..) - Fine
Firefox - Fine

I had these problems with a fresh Windows install and couldn't find the source problem, so I reinstalled all my drivers, still had the problem. So I decided to do a clean install of Windows last night, still the same problem again after reinstalling windows and opening a game (Batman - Arkham Origins) with literally nothing but Nvidia drivers installed.
Driver verifier was pointing towards my nvidia drivers, however nothing I seemed to do with them solved it.

There doesn't seem to be a problem with memory (memtest ran overnight with no problems)
CPU seems to be operating fine
GPU seems to be operating fine
While I can't tell what exact shape the PSU is in, nothing seems to be underpowered and all the rails seem to be within normal amp range.

Of the games tested.
Batman Arkham Origins crashes after about 10 minutes of playtime - If I fiddle with graphic settings I can get it just to crash to desktop (by disabling DX11 enhanced options and Physx options) , rather than BSOD. However I can play multiplayer fine with no crashes at all.

Hi everyone,

After a long time of trying to fix this problem by myself, i turn to the pro's for help I've been having a lot of BSOD errors while playing games and occasionally during browsing / playing movies on my pc. The most common error messages include:

Atikmdag.sys error.

After some research i thought it might be the RAM, so i went to the pc shop and my RAM was still under warranty so they gave me a new one and the problem seemed to have gone for a short time, then it came back and has been haunting me ever since. It usually occurs during gaming: the pc eithers shows a BSOD, or the sound loops and the screen is full of blue/red/green lines or it just resets. I added some minidump files of the latest crashes, hope it helps to determine the problem.
Might it have something to do with my old BIOS version? 14.04 dated 28/05/2010?
Basicly i find it very hard to determine whether the problem is hard- or software related. I would be thankful if anyone could help me on the way to finally fix this dreaded troubles. I'll be glad to provide any more info if required. Grtz from Belgium.

Well this has been ongoing for some while now, since I built my new PC in January. The first time I had a BSOD was whilst playing iRacing. It was weird, it happened again whilst playing iRacing but not any other time. Then after I started playing Borderlands 2, the game started to crash after a while, and sometimes BSOD. Whilst playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 the game crashes or BSOD. THen it just started happening even more often, like after startup, in the middle of browsing etc. The most common error message I think I've gotten has been the 'An interrupt wasn't recieved on a secondary processor in allocated time...'etc. I have even reinstalled Windows 3 times and the problem persists, even on a fresh install with almost nothing but default software.

Really annoying and don't know what to do. Would really appreciate the help. Included the SF Diagnostic file (zipped).

Hello, I have recently (end of August) purchased an ASUS G46VW. At first it was performing well, and it still does, except for when the display crashes. When I play games that aren't very graphics-intensive, such as Minecraft or League of Legends, the display rarely crashes, and the video card performs well. However, during these games it is rare, but possible, that I encounter an error. When I play more graphics-intensive games, such as Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, the errors are more frequent.

Occasionally the game will stop for a few moments, then resume after notifying me of an error.
Other times, it will either cause the game to stop responding (still allowing me to do other things), or it can cause the entire laptop to lock up, forcing me to do a hard restart.

Usually the errors say "...has stopped responding and has recovered."
Sometimes, it's "...has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware."
And on other occasions, I get a BSOD that is usually PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA with nvlddmkm as the file in parentheses.

The laptop is barely one month old. I've tried installing the newest graphics drivers, but they don't seem to help. I've system restored a couple times, and usually that seems to make the problem less frequent, but so far nothing I've done has solved the problem.

Please help, and thanks in advance!

This has been happening ever since I got this laptop, which was a very long time ago though it never bothered me as much as it has lately. Normally it happens after about 3-4 hours, or 5 if I'm lucky. Though whenever I play a game, it blue screens in about 1.5-2 hours. Though recently it has begun to crash in just an hour of playing a game and it's really beginning to get on my nerves.

I'll attach a few pictures of two of the blue screen's I tend to get, and will post more if I get anymore.
The most common error it gives me is "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT"

Thank you.

Thank you in advance for any help that you might be able to offer.

Back in March I bought a bundle of a MB, CPU + cooler, and RAM from a reputable UK based online retailer. Alongside this I also bought a graphics card, an SSD for the OS and games, and an HD for general storage. The other components come from an old PC including case, 1000WPSU, Blu-ray, and screen. Details should presumably be in the uploaded file alongside this but if you need anything further please let me know. The bundle came overclocked but I have run it non-overclocked and am still having issues.

About a month after having set it up I started getting BSODs when gaming. This is mainly GTA V but numerous other games also suffer either complete BSODs or crash to desktop. I also got 2 red screen of deaths at this time.

Crash codes for this were mainly 0x000000d1 but also included a few 9Cs. I tried everything to fix this including checking the temperatures reached by GPU and CPU (maxing out at low 80s so while high shouldn't be the cause), driver reinstallation, reinstalling windows (hence why the dmp files from this period aren't captured) and memtest86.

memtest86 crashed on its first run an hour in and on its second run showed one error 8 hours into a 20 cycle test. I returned the bundle and gfx card to retailer for testing and they replaced the RAM.

I have a pretty old Pc and lately (in the last week or so) I've started encountering Daily BSODs and PC going super slow mainly when gaming/after exiting games. (usually a restart fixes it).
I've installed BSODViewer and here is the dump:
I've encoutered same behavior before (not on so big scale, had a few BSODs in a week) but it somehow went away so I forgot about it. (Ik its stupid to do but yea..)

What could i do to stop it from BSODing? Im getting a new PC soon but until then i want this to hold on until then with minimal costs.

For some reason your tool doesnt want to run :l

I have been getting the BSOD for a while now. I've tried searching for ideas for a few weeks and have had no luck. I recently started playing Black Prophecy and started to get the BSOD every time I played. I also get it when streaming Netflix. I tried to make sure my drivers were up to date but I am probably missing some.

Ran memtest86+ overnight for 12 full passes and 1 90% pass. 0 errors.

Here is a list of the errors this month:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Matt

Majority of these caused by a year old AVG, and BitLocker Driver Encryption Driver
I would remove AVG and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials. Make sure you deal with bit locker first.

This has been happening for the past four months now to no avail. I get BSOD about every 1-4 days, often with different messages, but the average as of right now is 1e.

Built this system in October 2010. I've always had BSOD problems, but with work getting in the way and not really using my comp for a year, I wasn't able to tackle the problem. Now, while playing League of Legends it often crashes, or any other game (every 1-2 days) or when I'm just streaming something on netflix. I've had times when it'll blue screen while it's been at the log in screen. I'm baffled.

I've ran countless Memtest86's (7 pass minimum), seaDOS tool, disk check, sfc /scannow... everything checks out. I've reformatted my computer most recently (it's been often) around mid January.

Around that time, I decided that maybe it was my power supply, ram or video card, so I bought all new stuff. BSOD kept happening, reran tests, still checked out. I've checked and double checked all my drivers. I really am at a loss.

Went on Asus' forums for my motherboard, since RAM wasn't on compatibility list and asked about it. They said it should be fine if it passes memtest. Cool n' Quiet is also disabled on my BIOS, as they said that is also a frequent BSOD antagonist.

A:Multiple code errors, BSOD while gaming/netflix/idle...

I would run driver verifier to find which driver/drivers are the culprits.

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doe... Read more

Alright, so i've had my computer for quite a while now and im starting to see a few errors here and there. I've tried several things to fix my problems but none of them seem to have worked.

Let me begin by describing the issue.
When i'm playing a game or just watching something on youtube my computer will either BSOD or freeze for a few seconds and then say: "Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver , Version 301.24 stopped responding and has been recovered".
furthermore whenever my computer crashes it seems to have a very hard time starting up again. The screens usually go black after the windows logo has appeared, and after that a hard shut down is required and if im lucky ill be able to login.

Im thinking its a driver related problem seeing that i can boot up in safe mode with no problems?
*Edit* Is there anyway to move this thread to the crashes and debugging section?

Additional information:

I am running Windows 7 Enterprise x64 with service pack 1.
I'm using two Nvidia Gtx470 graphic cards with the newest drivers.
I have tried ALL the drivers for these cards and i have performed a clean install of them, though without any luck.
The problems started after i updated my driver to a newer version.
I have tried lowering my GPU, which didn't help.
I have been playing around in the nvidia controle panel. (Lowering the PhysX quality etc)
It's not my computer overheating.
It might have something to do with SLI seeing that when my SLI is activated its ... Read more

Hi all, first time SevenForumer, but looks like a good place to get some expert advice!

I'm having issues with my custom build. This is a long, historic problem with this build. I get BSODs (multiple types, minidumps attached) generally when gaming or watching youtube. Right after this happens, when I reboot, I will have trouble getting my computer to startup successfully. It will either fail to post, or windows will freeze again when it is starting up (but no BSOD here I believe, just a freeze).

This type of problem has been happening with this computer for about a year on and off. When it originally started happening, I had run memtest and saw errors so I actually ended up buying new RAM (the ones I have installed now). I have re-run memtest with this RAM and it too got memtest errors. At that point I figured it might be the mobo slot so I took out one of the sticks and ran memtest with with the single DIMM in different slots until I didn't get errors. That's the way I have it now. Everything was peachy until about a month ago when these problems started popping up again. So now I am just confused and uncertain about whats happening with my computer! Should I get a new mobo? That will be a headache, so hoping there might be another solution.

I'm attaching all my minidumps. They include some from back in March but i guess I would like to focus on the ones since late July to now. The most recent one, from Aug. 20th I believe I had driver verifier runn... Read more

Recently for Christmas I decided to upgrade my gaming rig, everything was going fine until around Janurary where I've been plagued with BSOD errors. They are quite random and have been happening while gaming, browsing and even just idling, there isn't really a pattern but I've noticed that the crashes have become much more frequent.

I thought it could be RAM at first, I ran Prime95 and got an instant BSOD error, but after running Passmark Memtest I've received no errors in 4 passes. I haven't got a clue what the issue could be.

I've attached the .zip file with the BSOD information as instructed. Hope anyone can help me out here, I will really appreciate it.

If any information is missing feel free to ask me, I'll try and answer it for you. Thanks!

A:Random BSOD errors while gaming/browsing/idling - 0x124 | hal.dll

I've managed to fix the errors. It turned out that my BIOS wasn't updated for there to be increased compatibility with Devil's Canyon CPU's, which just so happened to be mine. After installing the newest BIOS update, I ran Prime95 and there was no instant BSOD error and my processor ran very stable under maximum load. I'm just suprised that it was the BIOS considering I bought the motherboard back in December when upgrading my PC and it hadn't had a more recent BIOS update as standard. Oh well, thanks to anyone who was trying to help with this issue.
