Multiple BSOD`s / Crashes / Unexpected Restarts

Q: Multiple BSOD`s / Crashes / Unexpected Restarts

My Computer started experiencing BSOD every once in a while about 3 weeks ago, and it has progressively gotten worse, to the point where it is crashing/restarting 10+ times in a day. I have not made any hardware or software changes during this time. The most recent BSOD?s error gave: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and PAGE FAULT IN NON-PAGE AREA. I recorded a few of the file names given as causing the BSOD: ntoskrnl.sys, win32k.sys, dxgmms1.sys.
I have attached the BSOD Dump & System Files. Please let me know if you need any additional information.

Specs:
Windows 7 Professional 64Bit, which was updated from my previous XP OS
Intel Desktop DH55TC Motherboard
Intel i3 processor
8 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 RAM (Upgraded from 4 a year ago)

Hitachi 750GB Hard drive

Please let me know if you need any more information.
Thanks!

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: Multiple BSOD`s / Crashes / Unexpected Restarts

These are all over the map. Some hardware some soft. If I we you I would remove Norton AT LEAST TO TEST. It can be responsible for these kinds of crashes. After its replacement we can investigate further.

Symantec is a frequent cause of BSOD's. I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

A week or two ago, my Gigabyte GTS 450 died, and I bought a new EVGA GTX 650 from newegg. When I switched video cards, I also updated the drivers from 306.97 to 310.90. Ever since installing the new video card, I've been getting intermittent "crashes"; usually while browsing reddit or some other mundane activity. I put crashes in quotes as I'm not getting any error codes, my machine -which had been extremely stable previous to this- simply shuts down. It's as if someone had flipped the power switch; leaving nothing in the event log except an entry marking an unexpected shutdown.

It's odd to me that this occurs only while the GPU is NOT under load. I can play LoL just fine, and even newer more taxing games like Diablo 3 or Borderlands 2. The main correlation I've found with the crashes is when I'm downloading something; sometimes an image on imgur or buffering a youtube video. Normal net traffic such as chatting on mumble with friends or watching a video stream don't seem to trigger a crash. I've found I can pretty consistently cause a crash by attempting to download a game from Steam. I'm unsure how these types of net traffic differ such that one causes a crash and another doesn't.

However these crashes don't happen in safe mode, or if I disable my video card drivers. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the video drivers or perhaps some other system component. I'm assuming it's the video dri... Read more

A:Blue screen, freezing and unexpected restarts, BSOD attached

Hi,

We seem to have two main bugchecks here from the attached dumps:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (d1)

A kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL (Interrupt Request Level) that was too high.

Usual causes are a device driver has a bug and attempted to access invalid memory, the pagefile has been corrupted or there is a memory problem.

All of the *D1 dumps appear to be faulting pacer.sys, which is the QoS Packet Scheduler Windows driver (not the true cause). It's likely another device driver is causing it to crash. Usually when we see network related drivers and such on the stack and throughout the dumps, it's an indication of a 3rd party antivirus or firewall causing the issue. However, it can be hardware as well.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)

A kernel-mode driver or process attempted to access a protected memory location it does not have permission for, or a kernel interrupt request level (IRQL) attempted to access a memory address that is too high.

This bugcheck usually occurs when a driver uses an incorrect memory address. Other possible causes of this error include: bug in a device driver, system service, the BIOS, an old Anti-virus program or backup tool, or possibly memory issues.

I see you have Norton installed. I am going to recommend temporarily removing and replacing Norton with Microsoft Security Essentials for troubleshooting purposes.

Dear community,

For the last month or so, I have been having days where there would be multiple BSODs in a row and I can not even use my laptop properly. Now I don't know enough about computers to be able to fix this problem myself, and that is why I've come here to ask for help.

Hi,

There are many many issues with my computer. Everyday when I first turn it on, it constantly resets itself shortly after I hear the beep. It's not until I power off and on that it starts to progress. The second set of restart frenzy occurs during Windows loading. Again this will repeat itself until I turn it off and on again (usually many times). Sometimes I get the BSOD during loading (today I got the message IRQL not less or equal). Sometimes it also changed to a dark green screen on my monitor.

Once I get past Windows loading it's usually alright. But occassionally while running games it freezes or the screen changes to a colorful screen and freezes.

I suspect this has something to do with my video card as it's been a problem for a while (I had to underclock it to run some games).

I have a Gigabyte GTX280 running Windows Vista 64-bit. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

Hello! Recently I have been experiencing many problems with my laptop. Sometimes it randomly crashes and restarts without any errors or anything. I have been trying to look for any viruses on my computer but its clean, so I guess it might be a problem with my battery. My computer is a few years but I have never had problems like this before.

I tried to remove the battery from my laptop and run it directly through the charger but it only gave more problems. When I started my computer it gave me a blue screen of death. I tried to write down what I thought was important:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Stop: 0x000000D1 (0xFFFFF880068FF310, 0x0000000000000006, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFF880068FF310)

I managed to run a repair on startup after the BSOD but then after login, I clicked once on a folder and the computer froze!

I have put the battery back into the computer and it works in times but crashes and restarts sometimes

I have also tried to turn off the automatic restart so that it will give me a BSOD instead and it gave me these numbers:

Stop: 0x0000007F (0x0000000000000008, 0x0000000080050033, 0x00000000000006F8, 0xFFFFF800032D2694)

How can I fix all these crashes and restarts and why cant I run my computer without battery? Thanks for taking your time to read this!

They happen at the frequency of about 1 per hour on average, and completely randomly: listening to internet radios, watching youtube videos, playing some mp3, watching a movie, copying files..., even when the system has been completely idle.

I reinstalled the system 3 times. Right now I just got a new fresh installation, plus the Realtek audio drivers 6.0.1.5898 and the ATI Catalyst Control Center 9.11, plus the Adobe Flash Player. But as far as I?ve seen, the problem still remains.

I also run the memory test of Windows 7, but the result was ok. On top of that I checked the temperatures of the system and the CPU and they've been always below 40?C.

I?m not very skilled at computers but in general I like to build my on equipments, and I always managed to figure out the typical problems. However, this time I?m completely lost because of the complete random nature of the problem. Could you help me to find out which is the problem?

Hello everyone

As the thread title says, I've been getting multiple BSODs and restarts on my new pc build. Hoping for a kind knowledgeable soul who may be able to help diagnose a little further. All my pc specs are filled out in my profile.

A bit of background info. Initially the computer booted up fine for the first day or two. Checked temperatures using RealTemp (they seemed appropriate, in the 25C - 30C when doing light web browsing) and tested ram using memtest but only did 1 pass(later found out that i needed to do more than 1 pass, but it didn't show any errors on that pass that i did).

The bsod's are along the lines of IRQ not less or equal, bad_pool_header, and maybe one or two others which i can't remember at the moment.

I've been searching google for a while and can't come up with any solution. Some say uninstall/reinstall drivers. I have only installed what came with the motherboard when this started happening, so didn't try this yet(nor can i, the pc doesn't generally give me long enough to do this before restarting or bsoding).

Some suggest a sub-par psu will cause these problems. I'd say my psu may be sub-par, but many have used it succesfully for pc builds. It's this psu and came with the thermaltake v3 case. So not sure if this is the problem or not.

This is as far as I've got. I've atta... Read more

A:New PC build. multiple BSOD, random restarts

The power supply is severely lacking. It has a total of 29 amp on the +12 volt rail(s). These days the +12 volt rail pretty much powers everything in the machine, so getting a PSU with high amperage is a must. My guess, unable to decipher your bsod logs, is that's the culprit.

You must run memtest for 8 hours to test and stress every address range. However, sometimes that's not sufficient to find if the RAM is OK.

It's a pain, but after memtest, given no errors, then boot into Windows and run Prime95 for another 8 hours. This will put an unrealistic stress on the machine and tell you for sure if you're RAM is ok. If there's a problem with the RAM, it will show up relatively quick... within the first hour or so. Errors after that could also be fsb related.

After Prime, I always run dual instances of Orthos. This is going to tell me if I have sufficient vcore. Errors here are almost always fsb... given passing memtest and Orthos.

As of recently, my laptop seems to be having some issues. It's a two years old MSi GX60 1AC.

The problems I have include:
constant restarts, regularly paired with a blue screen of death;
browser crashes, especially when using flash player plug-in;
and general program crashes for no apparent reason.

I have written down most of the exceptions that were given as the reason behind the BSoD:
- DPS_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION
- NTF_FILE_SYSTEM
- IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
- KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE
- SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION(win32k.sys)
- PAGE FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA

To try and fix the problem, I completely reset my laptop to factory settings, including the hard drive. Unfortunately this did not fix anything. I have also tried removing all of the extra MSi programs that come with their laptops, to no avail.

I have run the windows memory troubleshooting tool, which told me "problems have been found", and consequently blocking, forcing me to restart my laptop. To try and fix it myself, I removed one of the 4gb RAM sticks, and ran the test again. This time, no problems were found (hurray), but shortly after booting I got another BSoD with the exception KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE.

A:Constant BSoD/restarts and general program crashes

Sounds like you have some bad RAM.

Instead of running Windows Memory Diagnostics, download Memtest86+.iso(zip), burn to, then boot from the CD. Run on each individual stick of RAM, run multiple passes, 3 to 4 hours each any errors you will need to replace the stick of RAM.
Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

Depending on the type of RAM installed, you may need a pair to run without errors.

Pretty much as the title describes. Of late the system has been prone to random resets, freezing up entirely. (No HDD activity etc.) And it seldom goes to BSOD it just freeze screens and I have to manually powerdown.

To help diagnostic I am not going to lie, I did a stupid thing, and reinstalled Daemon tools I had an image file I had to get at. Its since been removed and I even did a system restore to a point before it was put back in. But the problems have persisted.

I also cannot at current update my video card drivers to current install as theres a few old as shit apps I have to run on a day by day that dont seem to want to run under the newest drivers.

Is basically what it looked like. Froze at this point in playing Stalker SoC. Cellphone camera quality not withstanding.

A couple of the BSOD's i've received are:

PFN List Corrupt
Bad Pool Header
Memory Management

As a pre-emptive strike I ran Memtest 86 for 6 passes and it came back with 0 errors as well.

My Alienware Aurora R2 restarts itself in the middle of Starcraft 2 or when I get to the title screen for Shogun 2. It restarts itself then blue screens right when the windows user log on screen comes up. Sometimes is restarts and blue screens several times in a row before I can get back into windows. The blue screen text says something like 'page error in non page area' with lots of other text. I used to be able to play Shogun2 for hours and sometimes it would be fine, sometimes the computer would randomly restart itself and blue screen. Now I can't even get into a saved game or new campaign in Shogun2 because my computer will restart itself right when the title screen comes up after the intro video.
Alienware Aurora R2
Its the original OEM, Windows 7 Home Premium, that came installed on the computer
About two years old, haven't reinstalled the OS,
have had this problem off and on, strangely it seems to happen more when I am connected to the internet using a wireless USB stick.

A:Alienware crashes while playing Shogun2, Starcraft2: restarts: BSOD's

Every crash was caused by your Ralink network driver, which belongs to your USB Wireless device. I am unsure on what you have so please go to the support site for that product and download the latest drivers

Also, you have zero Windows updates installed since SP1. There should be between 70-90 updates. Please install all the available updates.

Hi this problem has nearly ruined me and cost a fortune so far, first I'll explain the problem about 6 months ago I had a PSU blow out on me, so I replaced it and all was well for a time when the PC would shut down and then restart without even showing a BSOD, at first it was now and then but gradually got worse. At first I thought it might of been the CPU overheating, I also thought that when the PSU blew it caused damage to the MB. So over a period of time I have ended up replacing all the hardware. For a time it seemed okay but the problem soon returned. (just to note it only shuts down when playing or starting games, I can surf the net or play videos etc without a problem).

My next thought was that it was a software conflict so I have ended up rebuilding a second PC, with a new HDD just incase it was a virus etc, I've loaded Windows 7 (home) 32bit, installed the graphics card (GeForce 560 Ti) with latest Nvidia drivers and a Asus sound card. I then installed Minecraft just as a test game and sure enough it crashes.

So I have eliminated the possibility of it being a hardware problem or a software conflict. I then thought it may of been the graphic card drivers so I uninstalled the latest driver and installed a older driver, but the problem remaines.

Whilst trying to check detals of my system, I noticed that the "Windows Experiance Index" score was only 1.0 whereas in the past it's always around 5.something, it shows gaming as 1.0 and Gaming Graphics as 1.0,... Read more

I have suspicions that it may be heat damage to my graphics card, due to a fan pointing in the wrong direction. I would, however, want to run this past you guys.

P.S. How would you go about getting a copy of the information displayed on the BSOD log, so I can post it - to aid you further.

Hi -

I have a self-built PC (system details below) which has been crashing regularly. I ran the Driver Verifier, following the instructions to check-box all non-Microsoft drivers: the PC BSOD'd. Then in order to send in the Kernal dump with the system report I downloaded the SysInternals AutoRuns file and the BSOD File Collection App and ran the latter: the PC BSOD's in the middle of it, but still it produced the output folder Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2 which is appended. When I ran the perfmon /report file the PC BSOD'd again before I could save the file.

When I came to look in the C;\Windows|Minidump folder I expected to find a series of Kernal dump files but there was only the one, so I don't suppose this one (which is attached) contains the dump from the Driver Verifier run.

Could you take a look at what I've sent and let me know if there are any useful clues here? Thanks for any help - this is becoming a major problem for me!

A:Help with multiple BSOD crashes

To add to my previous posting, I ran the recommended memtest86 on my 4Gb of RAM and there were no problems.

I also re-ran the Driver Verifier utility and, as before, it BSOD'd. Unlike the last time I was able to retrieve the crash minidump file - in fact there were two of them so I am attaching both as I'm not sure which is the relevant one (i.e. I don't know why there are two: I was expecting one only. They are both dated within minutes of each other).

Once again any help would be very gratefully received

Hello everyone,

I have been having a huge problem with my computer lately. It started about a month ago, went away, but is back again. Recently I have been having lots of blue screens every day, mainly while in game, although it sometimes happens out of game and even on boot. The main error code was 0x3B but they vary. Very frequently though, instead of a blue screen, my computer just freezes and nothing happens, and the audio glitches. A few days ago I have formatted my primary hard drive and reinstalled windows hoping that it was a driver related issue and it would stop, but it didn't. Also, near the end of August of this year, I have upgraded some major parts in my computer: CPU, Motherboard, RAM. But the problem didn't occur for a long time after. I have attached some dump files that my computer generated. Thank you to anyone willing to help.

I think it's first off mentioning I'm not a computer whiz so if I ask what something is that is the reason But the error I have been encountering is multiple BSOD crashes over the past 2 weeks, I've owned my computer for about 1 and a half years. I took it to my friends recently to show him it in action and in true fashion it didn't actually do it, the only difference in set up being I used a HDMI cable to connect to a different monitor but I don't think this could be the culprit, could it?

The BSOD comes up with the following messages in the past:
dxgmms1.sys
BAD_POOL_CALLER (The most common one without a doubt)
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I understand this isn't much to go on so if you need any information to help you try and solve this issue it would be much appreciated.

Hello all,
 
I've never used a forum for any computer problems and I'm somewhat of a newb but I should be able to help you help myself.
 
I have a Toshiba Satellite that's a few years old. 
 
I'm getting random BSODs and they aren't on the screen long enough for me to write anything down...sadly.  Other times, the laptop will simply lock-up and I'll need to hold the power button down to do a hard restart.  Sometimes the screen will turn into an amazing mess of pixelated insanity, usually the laptop will restart itself after those ones.  This is especially awesome because I use the computer for school and it's enraging to have it lock up and lose work.  I'm constantly saving little pieces of word documents just to stay a step ahead of the BSODs, it's simultaneously sad and comical. 
 
I downloaded Speccy and MiniToolBox as I've seen others use them to help you. 
 
Let me know how I should proceed and any questions you may have.

While doing seemingly resource light tasks such as watching a youtube video or listening to soundcloud, I would get BSOD. There are several different ones like the Watch dog one, pfn list corrupt, IRLQ not less or equal, system service exception and a memory dump.

I just did a fresh install of Windows 8 since I thought 8.1 was causing the issue. It started up around the time I upgraded to it and has gotten progressively worse.

Using an AMD HD7870 with the current non beta drivers. It caused it with the beta driver as well.

I checked all the RAM (4 sticks of 4) and they all worked individually.

What should my next step be?

Hi guys.

I had a problem a couple of months ago where after a while, nearly all my games would crash with a recovery issue. I had this resolved and was told numerous times that it was to blame on X, Y, Z programs because they weren't made by Windows.

However, suddenly this afternoon,I was playing warcraft when I hear an IM drop in, then I started getting graphical artefacts and was unable to alt tab, Ctrl/Alt/Delete, or use the windows key to escape. This started happening every time I restarted and tried to play the game, after about a minute. Before the issue I had happily been playing for a few hours, no problems.

Thinking it could possibly be the heat, I got some extra airflow in the room and lowered the temperature, to no avail. I checked for viruses, none. I closed all programs except the game itself, no effect. I lowered the graphical settings, nada. I then updated my graphics drivers to the newest set availble, still no luck.

My game then crashed with a full BSOD (attached, the latest in the file.) - Now when I turned my computer back on, I have graphical artefacts all over my screen, even in safe mode. There are 5 'groups' of lines that run down the screen, distorting everything. When I move my cursor over them they disappear but reappear as soon as the screen refreshes from something like scrolling down a page and such.

I was unable to run the report as requested, it came up with a page saying an unspecified error has occured and a report could not be generated... Read more

However, suddenly this afternoon,I was playing warcraft when I hear an IM drop in, then I started getting graphical artefacts and was unable to alt tab, Ctrl/Alt/Delete, or use the windows key to escape. This started happening every time I restarted and tried to play the game, after about a minute. Before the issue I had happily been playing for a few hours, no problems.

Thinking it could possibly be the heat, I got some extra airflow in the room and lowered the temperature, to no avail. I checked for viruses, none. I closed all programs except the game itself, no effect. I lowered the graphical settings, nada. I then updated my graphics drivers to the newest set availble, still no luck.

My game then crashed with a full BSOD (attached, the latest in the file.) - Now when I turned my computer back on, I have graphical artefacts all over my screen, even in safe mode. There are 5 'groups' of lines that run down the screen, distorting everything. When I move my cursor over them they disappear but reappear as soon as the screen refreshes from something like scrolling down a page and such.

I was unable to run the report as requested, it came up with a page ... Read more

I have had a long history of issues with this PC, involving a mixture of Crashes (like cable being pulled out full black screen), freezes (unresponsive and audio plays on loop), and BSOD's. I fixed the first set of issues by moving my RAM onto a different channel, and since then issues came and went, usually lasting a month or two and then it being stable with no issues for a few months and then something else would come back.
I had a few issues that were fixed about a month back, so I decided to upgrade to windows 10, Within a day I got a freeze, and since then I have had one BSOD one Crash and 5 or more Freezes. I have tried updating all the drivers I could think of, and tried checking event viewer to no affect.
Regarding the BSOD I know which driver caused it and believe it isn't an issue any more, its mainly the freezes I would like to fix. I have stress tested my hardware a lot and I never encounter any errors with it, however if recommended I will happily test again.
So does anyone have any ideas on how to start tackling these problems, and hopefully coming to a permanent fix?
Thanks for your time

Hi everyone,

I've had a look at some of the forums which seemed to have the same problem as me (perhaps for different/same reasons). Since updating the BIOS manually 3 weeks ago, I've been having multiple BSOD and each time the reason appears to be different. However, there are only 4 recorded BSOD in minidumps (I've had a lot more than that... but I don't know where it's gone).

Any help would be appreciated. I have attached the requested file.

Thank you,
Caroline

Hi there,

I am getting continuous problems with BSOD's. I ran the program "whocrashed" and they can be seen be low. I have also attached the files for extra information.

These blue screens seem to happen when I am using the PC for watching videos to gaming. Everything in my computer is relatively new except for the Motherboard and Processor. I have reformat Windows to try and fix this issue, but it has re-occurred.

Any information to fixing this would be massively appreciated!

I started this thread last week.

http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...-ultimate.html

Since then I have tried multiple things to fix my Blue Screen problems, none of them have worked and I am still receiving blue screens. I am starting to think I have defective hardware in this machine.

Since last week, I completely recovered my laptop to factory out of the box using Samsung Recovery. This brought my machine back to Windows 7 Home Premium. From there I used anytime upgrade to goto Windows 7 Professional x64. I ran all of the updates and installed Office 2007, no BSOD so far. I started to install Autocad 2011, during the installation I received a BSOD. Since then I have received one more BSOD while Autocad was running. I attached the BSOD Dump & System File Collection app. Thanks any help would be greatly appreciated.

AutoCad 2011 may be the reason why you have BSOD. I would recommend that you contact the makers of the software.

Update this...

(I had a previous post with slightly different issues some of which have now returned.)
 
Regardless,
I'm having allot of trouble with BSODs and random crashes as of late. If I leave my computer on constantly it will maybe crash once a week. However, if I turn it off for a few hours it crashes and Blue Screens up to 12 times for the first hour after I turn it back on. It then resumes relatively normal operation. I have observed many errors in event viewer and found and updated a problem driver through verifier. Verifier doesn't find any problems with non Microsoft drivers after 20 mins or so. If I verify all including Microsoft it crashes without mentioning a driver error (I didn't bother to check if that is a symptom of hassling Windows drivers.) I have been lead to believe that the pagefile or memory are causing my problems to an extent. However after much testing I can find no faults. I'm stuck at this point and any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm losing files and programs that are open to corruption or deletion when the crashes occur.
 
I can upload DxDiag for more info on the computer if necessary. Any sort of gaming seems to increase the likelihood of crashes. However avoiding games does nothing for prevention.

Hi. I built this computer about two months ago, and it's been running very smoothly except for one problem; every so often, out of the blue, it'll restart. All of the lights flash (simultaneously, kinda creepy because I have some blue cold cathode lights in there), something clicks repeatedly, and it can't go through the full boot process without doing the flashing lights and clicky noises again. It's an endless cycle until I manually restart it. I think it's the floppy drive that clicks (just judging by the sound of it), but I'm not entirely sure. Most of the time, it occurs when I'm surfing the 'net (I use the latest version of Mozilla Firefox if that helps at all), or watching something in Windows Media Player. It does this about once every three weeks, after being on for a few hours.

I posted this in here because I'm not entirely sure what's causing the problem, but I am using Windows XP. My dad seems to think that it's Windows Messenger causing trouble, but I put Shoot the Messenger on my computer to disable it and it's still acting all funky-like.

I think it's either some software problem, or maybe something with the power supply.

A:Unexpected Restarts - A Little Help, Here?

welcome to the forums
what brand hard drive do you have?
if you think the noises are from the floppy drive, disconnect it, when the message appears about the missing floppy on boot, hit f1 to finish loading windows ...and see if you still get the restarts.

Hello -

Seems you've identified the likely cause of your issue. Adding the RAM, and then the issue...something wrong there.

I see no malware evident in that log. This forum is for malware removal. I'd recommend you ask for help in the Windows XP or Hardware sections of the forum.
