BSOD's Make it impossible to log on at times

Q: BSOD's Make it impossible to log on at times

The Bluescreens i get are completely at Random, sometimes my computer crashes before i can even log on, other times it can run for a day without a crash.
but lately ive only been getting the before-log on crash.

Attatched are the two folders i could get before it crashed. it seems to not like when i try fixing my computer.

The newest stuff is in minidump.rar i think.
i couldnt click fast enough to get a brand new one.

My Computer's about a year or two old, its been not used for months because of the bluescreens.
Its A Acer Gateway DX4831
it has 1TB of HDD and 6GB of ram, it Runs on windows 7 home premium and i have done two clean reinstalls already.
if was running on something different at first, it was still windows 7, the bluescreens started happening ages ago so i cant really determine what could of started them.
but i do remember the fact that it started with one blue screen every once in awhile, then they started to build up.
Im not very educated in fixing computers, so if i am told to do something i might need instructions on how to do so.
it is a 64 bit
what else..Its never been anything other than a acer gateway, and its been under a week since the last clean reinstall.
ive tried numerous amounts of things. During the clean reinstall i would constantly get bluescreens
I will post updates if anything happens.

the only things i could get [i apologize]

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:Make uninstallation impossible?

You can hide a program in the Add/Remove programs applet by deleting its Uninstall entry in the registry. See this article for detailed instructions.

Hello people, I have noticed a weird issue with a certain USB device. It's a dongle for my Speedlink Gamepad and whenever that is connected, I can boot normally as long as I have quick boot enabled. However when I reboot the system, try to enter the bios or boot without quick boot enabled, the system does not boot up neither does it show the boot splash screen. The fan goes crazy and that state keeps on going forever. When I disconnect that USB dongle and hard reset the laptop everything works as it should. I have updated my bios already to the latest version but nothing has changed. I can of course just disconnect the USB dongle but this sounds more like a serious problem.  Best regards, szt666

I can't find a way to make certain Outlook Contacts tailor-made-private.
Maybe it's simply not possible, maybe someone knows a workaround or so.

I use the NOTES box in an Outlook Contact form often to write confidential information about that person. such as cv details, job reports, financial details etc.
I have no problem that anyone who accesses my laptop (or smartphone) can read the general contact details of these people, such as name, (email) address, phone etc.
But I want to hide the confidential notes. Is there a way to do that?

What I already checked and does NOT give the solution I hope for:
1.
Make the whole contact PRIVATE by clicking Contact > Options Tab > Private.
As I understand this only hides the WHOLE contact record for those people who share my contact folder in a network and access it from a different computer. If someone uses my own computer and runs Outlook he can access the confidential notes as well.
2.
Write my confidential notes outside Outlook in a password protected Word document and drag that to the NOTES in Outlook. Then confidentiality is ok, but flexibility not: from within Outlook I myself can only READ the attached document, not edit it. So I must store the word attachments somewhere outside Outlook, with proper names for identification, password protect them and then edit them. As long as they keep the same name and the same location, Outlook will update the contents of the attached document. This is the best option I could find. ... Read more

Quote:

Change delegate access to private items

If you have assigned permissions to a delegate so that he or she can access your Outlook folders, you can hide personal information in appointments, meetings, tasks, and contacts. Open each personal item, and on the Calendar Tools tab, in the Tags group, click Private.
If you want to give a delegate access to see your private items, do the following:
Click the File tab.
Click Account Settings, and then click Delegate Access.
Click the name of the delegate for whom you want to change access to your private appointments, and then click Permissions.
Select the Delegate can see my private items check box.
Important You should not rely on the Private feature to prevent other people from accessing the details of your appointments, contacts, or tasks. To make sure that other people cannot read the items that you marked as private, do not grant them Reviewer (can read items) permission to your Calendar, Contacts, or Tasks folder.

This is my custom build computer of 4 - 5 years. The past year or so i keep getting random BSOD. There are times right after i do a windows update, the very next day my computer will crash. I am running the latest nvidia drivers, and also run windows update. Some times the error says Memory Management, or ntfs.sys, fltmgr.sys. I did a memory test and it passes. I also tested hdd for errors. I really can not take getting all of these BSOD. Right now, it is happening about 3 times per week. At times i am using my computer and other times it is at night when it is locked. I have not added anything to my computer since it was born 4 - 5 years ago. I also do not overclock or mod anything.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hello,
New member here and thanks in advance for looking.

I have a home built w7 Home Premium box we use almost exclusively for Windows Media Center. I started getting bsod's about a month ago and before that got distorted *pinkish* video on restart or bootup at times.

Tried using msconfig and changed settings and thought I had it but it resumed the pink screens (sometimes garbled colors i.e. squares and other shapes) so I bought a new video PCIe card, an XFX R6700. Thought this had it but it resumed the bsod's and sometimes graphic issues.

Saved our pics and such and did a clean install.
Worked fine for a couple days then back to the bsod's and pink graphics.

Having a hard time getting the crash files together for upload, new guy here so hopefully I'll get it figured out and add it. The directory created by SF_Diag is 34.1mb large and when I go to U/L size limits say nope. Pointers here maybe.

Thanks,

I often get the * Hardware failure * bsod. Now I know these can be caused by a number of things, so that is why I included with this post the SF Diagnostic Tool zip attachement so you can help me figure this out.

I have been getting BSOD's for the last week or so. I can't read the entire screen in time when it happens but I do catch something about a hardware issue. This has happened several times while playing video games, but others when surfing the web, or just doing some typing. I've checked all of the components and they seem to be functional to the best of my knowledge.

I was getting random lock ups as well, where the entire system would freeze up, I would lose control of everything. This happened a few times when watching movies or games, and the sound would continue on as if there was nothing wrong while everything else froze and would not respond. I reinstalled windows and none of these lock ups have happened since, and I went 2 days without the BSOD but it has come back today.

The computer is as follows with a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS

Intel 980 Extreme 6 core CPU
12 GB DDR3 Ram
2 64GB Kingston SSD
1 2 TB SATA Drive
Nividia 430 GPU

I also stress tested my GPU and CPU to make sure they were not overheating, though I didnt think they were.

It's been almost a week, I've had BSOD came up randomly once throughout the day, then the second day, it happened multiple times. I tried calling Microsoft support for help by speaking to their agents and after following their troubleshooting process, my laptop became worse to the point where I couldn't even get past the login screen and my correct password was seen as an incorrect password. I tried system restore, rebooting in safe mode, and a factory reset and the problem persisted. I asked Microsoft Support what to do next and they said my only option was a clean installation of Windows which required another PC and USB Drive. Haven't been using my PC for days until now.

I then called MSI and they told me the same thing, otherwise I had to go get it sent to a technician or mail it to them to get it fixed. Two days ago, I then did the clean installation of Windows as suggested using the creation media tool, downloaded all of the necessary drivers for the model of my laptop and there was no BSOD error while I was getting my PC up to date. I tried rebooting to see if BSOD would come up again and it seemed fixed.

Welcome to the forum.

Kaspersky contributes to BSOD's. Please remove it for testing purpose. Use Microsoft Security Essentials.

Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other security software:

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Malwarebytes - Free

Good and Free system security combination.

Reduce items at start-up: Startup Programs - Change

Perform a clean boot: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable!:-

Hello all

I really need some help, have tried all i know and asked other places, have read some threads here and really sounds like you all know your stuff Here is my problem. When i game the game will freeze sound still plays but mouse everything locks up. Have to warm reboot. Other times it goes to black screen, and still have to warm reboot. I had this problem starting a year ago. At that time i did mem test, cpu stress test, gpu stress test, all came back fine. Back then it use to reboot itself. So, i figured maybe a psu issue, it was still under warranty so i sent it off, they did find a bad capacitor and replaced! Cool no a month after getting it back started doing as mentioned above. So, at that time i had a 8800GTX 1.5 gig video card in it. So, i spent the money and went to a Geforce 560 GTX 2 gig, eventhough i had stressed tested the 8800. Ok so a week or so went by all good then it started up again. Only has it locked up once while not gaming. Always locks on WOT(world of tanks unless i use the older 275 nvidia driver) DIdnt use to lock up with Diablo III, TSW, SWTOR, SCII. Untill recently sometimes its once or twice a night others its 3 or 6 times. I ran a Mem test a week ago ran for 9 plus hours no errors. At wits end dont know what to do. Please any suggestions or thoughts or solutions would be welcomed.

Hi all

I have had this problem for a couple of months and it is driving me crazy . The problem has also evolved somewhat. It started with what seemed like power issues and so I bought a brand new 530W PSU. Since then I have done a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro SP1- twice. Updated the BIOS. Updated all the drivers I could find that were slightly old. I have swapped out the graphics card; swapped out the RAM (DDR3); swapped out the mobo for identical model. I have even bought a new SSD and installed W7ProSP1 on that. It now starts nice and fast - but still unstable. I get 3 types of failure:

1. BSODs. dumps show various errors - not all the same.
2. Lock-up / Freeze - have to power off/on (no logs/dumps).
3. Random resets where the system acts as though the reset button was pressed. (no logs/dumps).

I am at a complete loss. Seems that the only thing I haven't swapped out is the CPU.

I have followed the instructions for attachements - please note that the system froze twice and I had to power off/on and re-run the program. Worked third time around. I have attached relevant files. I have also attached a screenshot of various system stats to give a better idea of my setup.

I really hope that someone here specializes in the impossible. This has cost me a fortune in time and money - and hair I REALLY need some help here. I have done everything I know how to and I am still lost.

TIA guys.

Hi - I would really appreciate it if someone can shed some light on my BSOD, it is driving me completely nuts.

I decided to re-install my Windows 7 because I have started getting some random BSOD (not too often). When I did it the first time, I forgot to install the drivers from Asrock for HDD, and ended up corrupting my 4TB drive (because it was really only seeing 1.7TB, so all the data ended up getting messed up). Before my second re-install, I realized that my HDD got corrupted and thought that was causing the issues for the BSOD.

I reformatted the data drive, but still kept on getting the BSOD. I also swapped out the rams with a bunch of Corsair XMS3's which I had on the side. I ran both of these (GSkills and XMS3s) through 12+ hours of memtest and no issues.

On the 3rd re-format, I installed all the drivers and thought all the problems were fixed when I ran Prime 95 for 12 hours straight and had no issues. However, when I started copying data back to my 4TB from my NAS, I started getting BSOD. I swapped out my 4TB with an old 3TB data drive, and I am still getting BSOD. I have also tried bumping my voltage up from 1.5 to 1.535v for the memory, but that doesn't seem to help.

If anyone can take a look at my BSOD dumps and shed some light, I would really appreciate it! Many thanks!

Hello,
I got the BSOD four times in the last few days.

Two times over night, and two times while I was on the computer, but not doing anything special (one time I was watching youtube and the other just browsing). Probably Firefox and Visual Studio 2012 were running every time but there was no intense CPU usage.

My specs are:

I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64 with Service Pack 1

I ran the DM Log Collector and attached the zip file it created.

Hi and Welcome to SF!!!

The results from the DMP files do not give a definitive answer. While we investigate further here are a few things that you can do.

1-Run a system file check to verify and repair you system files. You do this by typing cmd in search, then right click and run as admin. SFC /SCANNOW

2-Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.
3-Event viewer
Go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

4-Device manager
Please go to start>search>type device manager.
Are there any "unknown devices" with yellow triangles on them?
Is you driver there , listed, and working?

If y our driver is missing, or there is a yellow triangle on it, you will need to update it.

5-Driver verifier
please run Verifier with these settings:

About a week back, I started blue screening with 'irql_not_less_or_equal' and some pagefile bsod (i forget the text). I formatted since I hadn't done it in awhile, hoping that maybe I installed something funky and it would get rid of the issue.

It's almost been a week since my reformat and I am still getting these errors, and a few new ones! I have 2 x 2gb of ddr3 ram in my computer (that were shipped with the comp from the factory). Since the last two days, my computer sometimes only recognizes 1 of the sticks after startup. I figure since ram is cheap, and an upgrade would be nice, I go out and buy 2 x 4gb of ddr3 ram (what I bought is compatible with my comp). I still get these errors and have the problem of the computer sometimes only recognizing half of the ram. Right now, I have the 2 x 2gb sticks of ram in since I don't want to damage the ones I just bought if I do end up returning them. In the Perfmon .html file that was included in the zip file below, the computer is only recognizing 2gb of the 4gb currently installed.

Before the format, I was getting blue screen 4-5 times a day, usually when playing games or watching videos. After format, up until today, it would bluescreen like once a day. Today, it's bluescreened more times than I can count. I've been trying to run these tests to make this topic, and it would bluescreen in the middle. I don't have too much installed since the format.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (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!!!
Memtest.

*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.

I think it is likely that the combination of the aging Broadcom driver caused the IRP to be blocked. As far as ATI - probably a bad interaction with the old cam driver. Your Realtek Ethernet driver is up-to-date; not sure what the NDIS protocol driver is - but is it running in kernel mode. The Brother USB driver - a printer maybe?

First Time Poster Here. I'm getting the BSOD 3-5 times a day. I believe I have attached everything the "Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions" ask for. Any Help would be greatly appreciated.
Below are my system specs.

Windows 7 x64 OEM - What is the age of system: 1 Year - What is the age of OS installation: 1 Year

A:BSOD 3-4 times a day

32 memory dumps from 24 Feb to 19 May 2011

MSINFO32 suggests it may be a networking issue due to the BSOD's shown there. This includes the possibility of problems with your McAfee (more on that later).

Will post more once the memory dumps are finished running (? hour or so)....

I've seriously been slacking in seeking help. I've been getting BSOD since last year. It started out at once a month and kept getting worse. Now it's up to 4 times a day sometimes. I switched from a Radeon HD6870 to my old Geforce 9600 and that helped for a bit.

OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit SP 1 - original OS not OEM
Hardware age less than 2 years
OS age less than 2 years. Never reinstalled

Hello all,

I have bought a new computer 1 month ago and almost immediately it started BSOD. It occures 1-2 times per day. When I first open it, it BSODs after approx 30-40 minutes and then most of the times it doesn't crashe again, even if I use it all day.

It can BSOD anytime. Surfing Firefox, playing Diablo (the only game I play), programming at java.

I have read forums and updated my SSD hard drive firmware just 2 days ago. I have OCZ Vertex 3 120GB. I have read that ssd drives cause BSOD and updating the firmware didn't resolve the problem.

I have 8GB memory Corsair Vengeance. As I tun Win x32, the system reckons only 4GB. My next step is to format and go with Win x64 to check if this is the problem.

I have motherboard drivers as they came from the manufacturer's cd but updated nvidia to the last one.

I attached the results of BSOD Dump & System File Collection app and the System Health Report.

Thank you.

Were you aware the above problem? Check you Device Manager and re-install your audio drivers from your Motherboard support site or vendor support site (HP, DELL, etc.).


Security Software: ??? Make sure to install security software. I recommend either of these:Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows coupled with Malwarebytes. Do not start the free trial of Malwarebytes. Just use the standalone version, update it, and scan your computer once a week with Malwarebytes and with Microsoft Security Essentials.

Good and Free system security combination.

After installing your security software, update it, and then run full scans today with each program. Report back the results of the scans.


It looks like your SSD is having some problems. It may be disappearing from the system.

Try doing a power cycle of the SSD. The following steps should be carried out and take ~1 hour to complete.Power off the system.
Remove all power supplies (ac adapter then battery for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and drain all components of power.

Hi there!
Past the last few days I've been getting BSODs several times per day. This occurs most frequently while gaming World of Warcraft.

My system specs are as follows:

I've run a System Health Report and another BSOD-.exe thing, which I was instructed to run and attach to the post.
Also I get this message from windows, when it starts back up from the BSOD:

Hi,

I have a windows 7 SP1 32bit Dell laptop that BSOD a few times a day lately.
Here are the specs: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/4mHesVLQWVEhdV6n17h5mJT
I did the following:

Please follow the instructions: BSOD Posting Instructions: Windows 7 - Vista
(Note: When you run BSOD_Windows7_Vista_v2.64_jcgriff2_.exe, it will also run autoruns.exe ... and both need to be in the same location!)

... with one exception in the following line:
"4. Zip up the entire output folder + PERFMON and attach the zip file to your next post."

The BC forums will allow a total attachment size of only 512 kb (and what you need to attach will exceed this limit). Please upload the zip file to a file sharing website of your choice and and post a link to it in this thread so that we can access your uploaded zip file. I will have a look at the contained information and see if I can shed some light on your BSOD issue.

I posted the files at http://www.box.com/s/185e98c7a8e8ce164f8b

Thanks for your help

I have a one-week old Dell XPS 8500 that is crashing several times a day. Shortly after getting it, I turned off UAC. Several days later I reset UAC to the recommended setting. I suspect UAC problems may have something to do with the issue?
