Random BSOD probably caused by ntoskrnl.exe

Q: Random BSOD probably caused by ntoskrnl.exe

Hi,

Last year I bought a new computer (desktop pc which I build myself) and ever since then I have had random occurrences of BSOD. Sometimes it take 4-6 weeks before it happens and some times it can occur several times in one week. I have done some memory, graphics and cpu tests without succeeding to reproduce BSOD myself.

I have also used Windows verifier to check the drivers and they do produce BSOD but these differs from the regular ones that occurs randomly, this I have noticed with the Windows program WhoCrashed. According to WhoCrashed those random BSOD has something to do with ntoskrnl.exe. Here is the output from an analyse from Whocrashed of one of my dumpfiles:

On Tue 2015-11-03 20:09:21 GMT your computer crashed crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\110315-5038-01.dmp This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x74200) Bugcheck code: 0x50 (0xFFFFF6FC5262D000, 0x0, 0xFFFFF800032F0700, 0x9) Error: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe product: Microsoft? Windows? Operating System company: Microsoft Corporation description: NT Kernel & System Bug check description: This indicates that invalid system memory has been referenced. This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

What causes this? Is it a hardware fault or some driver issue? If it's some software issue how do you repair it? The dumpfile to the above message is attached in this thread.

Best regards

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.)

Hello guys. For some reason I get these random BSODs on this computer. I viewed dmp files in BluescreenView and it showed me that ntoskrnl.exe is causing the crash.
I have reinstalled windows already (win7x64 ultimate), same thing happens randomly.

Could you please look at them and tell me which path should I go about fixing this?
Thank you.

Seems like a hardware problem, test your RAM
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Update the Nvidia drivers
Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers


   Information
If your still get BSODs run Driver Verifier and upload any dumps which are then created
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Note: Your computer may not be functional in Normal Mode if faulting drivers are detected during this phase, you may need to use Safemode with Networking.

Hi,

I built a new computer a few months ago and I have recently been getting random hangs/freezes on my computer where nothing responds and I have to turn power off/on again. I did a fresh install of windows to try and sort things out but now i've been getting random BSOD instead. There's no pattern to them and they could happen at any point.

BlueScreenView says from the dmp's that the driver causing it is ntoskrnl.exe which seems to have many possible hardware/driver causes.

I ran memtest for 13 hours and that came back with 0 errors so I don't think its my RAM.

If anyone could look at my dmps to try and give me more of a clue of whats causing this problem I would be very grateful

Hi, i'm receiving random BSOD's for a long time. I want to fix it but i don't know much about it, so sorry if it isn't the good information. According to BlueScreenView, it's mostly the ntoskrnl.exe, but there are also messages about AsrOcDrv.sys, nvlddmkm.exe and ntfs.exe. I just did wat the BSOD posting guide said so hopefully it's enough.

Hi PadeLee.

I worked two times with your BSOD issues earlier.
During last October, it was ESTE that caused the BSOD.
During last December, It was MotionInJoy.
So the issues are always different, and not any continuation to each other. Unfortunately we cannot predict which software/driver will bug out and when.

Same this time. Now it is Microsoft LifeCam.

Hey! I've been experiencing random blue screens in the past few weeks. Sometimes i get them when playing, sometimes while browsing. I've downloaded Bluescreenviewer and according to it the problem lies in ntoskrnl.exe. I tested my ram and didn't get any errors overnight. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress. - H2SO4


The generic nature of the 0x124 (Arg1=0) stop code means we would have to take
the trail & error approach.

In this kind of bug check I would like to have a couple more to see if the error is consistent,
the file uploaded only contains one dump file.

The error was a generic memory write error in the L0 CACHE, as I said above one bugcheck is not enough
to establish some sort of pattern.

A:Laptop random BSOD Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe

Out of the 3 crashdumps you provided, 2 show crashes that look like his video card drivers were involved. The drivers do look fairly old (August 24 2011) so make sure that he keeps em up to date. Other than that, I can say the crashdumps aren't sufficient enough to find exact cause right now.

Before I continue, I want to add that it's probably ill-advisable for him to seek assistance fixing a company laptop by a 'friend', and moreso when that friend is posting details of it to a public forum. Granted, there isn't anything entirely compromising of security from the JCGriff Report, but it doesn't matter. If it's company property, it should be best left to the company's IT department to resolve the issue.

Hi,

I'm new here, but not new to IT and I'm quickly running out of ideas on this one. PC started to BSOD at random intervals. I haven't been able to narrow down the culprit though. Below, I have attached the last few crash dumps from whocrashed. Only thing I've done out of the ordinary recently was to uninstall a partition that I had installed Windows 8 for testing. The last step I took was to back up my important data, nuke the entire thing and do a fresh install of Windows 7 from a disk. Any input would be greatly appreciated. If you need any other information, please let me know!

Hi there,
I seem to be having random bsod crashes. I 've already checked for hardware faults like overheating or sudden voltage shift and it's none of it. I 've also run memory and hdd diagnostics and they seem to be ok too, so it has to be some software/driver bug. I 've run WhoCrashed and it points out ntoskrnl.exe as the main culprit (which is really wierd) or some 3rd party driver which runs in kernel mode.
So, I attach my crash reports.
My specs:
? OS: Windows 7 x64
? Windows XP 32-bit was installed before that (had bsods from back then)
? No OEM (I built the system and installed the OS).

A:[SOLVED] random bsod (caused by ntoskrnl.exe?)

I used the DriverVerifier and as suggested in the instructions I got a BSOD in startup indicating the faulty driver. It was some Asus Motherboard drivers (asacpi.sys and asio.sys) which are related to a component called ATK0110. I uninstalled it from the Device Manager and the next startup was all fine. I ll wait a few days, to make sure if this was the case and I 'll inform you.

Hello everybody, my name is Patricio, and I have been experimenting some random BSOD with error 0x0000000a caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe. I have tried to pinpoint the driver by myself but i failed to see which one is causing this. I have reinstalled all motherboard drivers (AMD Southbridge + Video Card Drivers), I've run this OS for around 200 days and only once every 6 months I got one of this BSOD, but now, this week, it started to do it quite often and randomly. To give you an example, I can let my computer on for hours, just letting it downloading something and it will be just fine, then use it, watch videos, surf the internet and nothing. Windows only managed to catch one Dump, as the screen stays at the 0% while the BSOD and even after letting it for half an hour, it won?t finish. I have also run a Memtest for 10 Hours, it managed to run 3 passes, but I had 0 errors. That is why I believe it is probably something related to a driver, not a system driver but a 3rd party driver, like antivirus or so. I have read the guide in sevenforums of how to run the Verifier, create a custom run, and I will let it now reboot, Hoping it can log something.

Once the MiniTooBox scan is finished you can copy and then paste the results in your topic.  You can do the same with the minidumps.  I would post these separately, ex. post #3 minitoolbox, post #4 minidumps.
 
The Speccy is showing the 12V rail to be 8.064V.  I suspect this isn't accurate, but it would be worth putting a meter on it to be sure.  If it is accurate, then your PSU has a problem.

Hello,

my laptop is a HP dv7 1080 originally with vista x64 OEM upgraded to seven pro x64 RETAIL with accademy program. Upgrade done a year ago NEVER a problem, never a BSOD. Basically never problem with my laptot. My hardware is 2008 old but i never have problems with it. I replaced only power charger and battery.

I'm unable to run System Health Report with perfmon /report because i receive a timeout error doing it but i see that on C:\PerfLogs\System\Diagnostics i've all reports that i tried to do. I'll attach it and also minidump folder.

Using Blue screen view i saw that BSOD SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION are always caused by ntoskrnl.exe

A:random BSOD caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7cc40 (?) specially after start PC

Suggest you remove it to test.
NB, if critical update to newest
> Please remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp, called sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

8 different causes most pointing to hardware. If you are overclocking stop.

Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.
1-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.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

2-Driver verifier

Hi,
This problem started in Flight Simulator, but now its random. I have run memtest twice for four hours each, all is fine. I have a Western Digital HD, and ran their diagnostic tool for it from their site. I have reset the RAM after cleaning it also. I dust out the machine regularly. I checked the voltage in the BIOS and the +3.3, +5, and +12 all fall in range. BUT, I also have CPUID HWMonitor, and that shows different voltage readings, way below what they should be (ex. +12V - 8.016V) WAY off! I don't know if that is correct or the reading in the BIOS itself. The last reboot was when I was in Flight Simulator. I ran it in window mode, with GPUID running so I could monitor the temperature. When it rebooted, the last temp I saw was 55C, which is hardly overheating I believe. All of the last 10 or so reboots show "caused by address : ntoskrnl.exe+4adb3c."

I'm leaning towards the power supply, but the different readings are confusing.

Thanks in advance,

Hello,

I've just returned from my holidays and my computer startet to behave rather weird. First things I noticed was random "oh snap"-errors in Google Chrome. I updated Flash Player, tried a new Chrome profile and even reinstalled Chrome but nothing helped.

Tonight I had the first bluescreen while running a backup to my NAS.
A few minutes ago I had a second BSOD, this time while scanning the computer for malware with Spybot Search & Destroy.
I checked the MiniDumps with BlueScreenView, which indicated that they were caused by ntoskrnl.exe.
I have no idea if the Chrome errors and the bluescreens are related or if this is just coincidence.

I didn't change any hardware or software lately, apart from windows and software updates.

My hardware:

i5 3570k
Gigabyte Z77X-U3DH
8 GB DDR3 Memory
ASUS GTX 670
Samsung 830 SSD 256 GB
WD Black 1 TB
WD Green 2 TB
Asus Xonar soundcard

Antivirus is Avast, which I have been using for years now.

My CPU is oced to 4 GHz, but worked stable like this for more than two years now and wasn't using its full boost at the time of the bluescreens.

If you need further information, please request it. Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you.

Regards,
Gerrit

Got my first blue screen of death tonight, had 2 firefox opened one watching youtube video another browsing internet. After bsod it restarted i login but just black screen with cursor, ctrl alt delete worked so i shut my computer down. Boot up normally after, check my minidump file, bsod cause by ntoskrnl.exe. Did little search on google find has to do with ram and hard drive.

Downloaded wd data life guard diagnostic for my mechanic drive which is healthy but my ssd on shows failed end to end error rate(value/threshold/worst is all 0) in SMART statue. Im not sure if i can trust this wd diagnostic on my crucial ssd, there are alot of unknown in SMART statue too. Theres no ssd diagnotic for crucial, there is a firmware not sure if it helps. So i downloaded and ran crystaldiskinfo on my ssd, health statues says good, it doesnt say end to end error rate like wd. Instead same ID B4 line says "unused reserve nand blocks" instead.

Hey guys, I've been getting BSODs that are apparently being caused by ntoskrnl.exe. Sometimes happen within minutes of turning on the computer, sometimes not at all. I've read it may be caused by a graphics card driver, but the driver is already on its latest version. Currently running Seatools on my HD to see if that comes up with anything...

Hi all,

3 weeks ago I did a fresh install of Windows 10 and since then I'm getting BSODs at least once every 1-2 hours. These BSODs vary from SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED to KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. Also these BSODs happen at random moment: when the computer is iddling, when I'm downloading, when I'm listening to music, when I'm playing Battlefield 4.

I've already updated all drivers, but now I'm at a point that I don't know anymore what could be causing these BSODs. So I hope you guys could help me find out what the problem is and how to resolve it.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Alcohol 120% at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Uninstall AVG. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.
Some other very important things are not properly loaded, but those may be caused by eithor or both of the aforesaid things. In the presence of those two, all the mishaps may happen.

fffff880`084513e8 fffff880`03706a3eUnable to load image eamonm.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for eamonm.sys

eamonm+0x1ca3e

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for epfwwfpr.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for epfwwfpr.sys
epfwwfpr+0x175d0
My recommendation here would be to uninstall ESET using the tool linked below.
Then install MS Security Essentials and MalwareBytes.



   Note
Make sure you uncheck the 'Enable Free Trial' box when installing MalwareBytes.


Your Realtek Ethernet driver is also causing issues. It' very old and needs updating, check here for an updated version.

6 month old HP Probook 450 G1 laptop running Windows 7 sp1 blue screening. I used Nirsoft's bluescreenview and can see that most of the blue screens have been caused by ntoskrnl.exe. One crash was different - after that crash we had to boot from last known good to get the computer going again.

I did some reading on various websites on ntoskrnl the error message and on bug check 0x0000009f - with mixed results - some point to corrupt or bad drivers and other message points to it either being a memory or hard disk issue. This computer is in an office that I only have remote access to. I got a staff member to go into F2 at boot and run diagnostics and there were no errors. I will run a disk drive check when there is a staff member present to tell me what is being displayed on the screen.

I have run memory checks using MemTest - just one pass without errors. I have just started it again and will leave it to run for at least half a day as long as the computer does not crash again.

I have attached a zip file created by the dm log collector in the hope that some one might be able to help me solve this problem faster.

I can not put my computer into sleep or hibernate. If I do, I get a BSOD. I reinstalled and installed the nvidia driver, tested it, and was able to sleep/hibernate. Then I updated and get a BSOD. I'm pretty sure it is a Windows update error. I did google searches and really didn't find anything that matched my problem entirely. Thanks for the help.

My 3 year old PC has started to have BSOD continually, and I cant sometimes even start up the computer because it gets a BSOD during start up. I downloaded this program "BlueScreenView" to see what causes the BSODs and in every .dmp file there is "Ntoskrnl.exe" as the cause of BSOD. I reinstalled windows but the bluescreens still come. I attached my .dmp files as instructed.

I was running the Steam product Vindictus, which i have had no problems with in the past, when i recieved a BSOD. Checking the dump file, i saw the cause was ntoskrnl.exe. Over the next 4 hours, my computer restarted itself while i attempted to rectify the issue, with no BSOD. I have now updated every driver on my rig, and still receive the same restart, at various intervals when playing Vindictus.I have since ceased to play, and have ran a chkdisk, registry cleanup and full virus scan/virus update with no fix.

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

HI

I bough this Acer V3-571G-9435 laptop on Aug 20, 2012 and replaced the original HDD with OCZ vertex 3 240GB SSD before I star it up. I installed Win7 Home Premium 64 bit version.

Here is the hardware information of the laptop:
CPU: intel i7-3610QM
Memory: Kingston DDR3-1333 2GB & A-Data DDR3-1333 4GB
Graphic card: nVidia GT640M
SDD: OCZ vertex 3 240GB
HDD: Seagate ST9500325AS 500GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache 2.5" SATA

I have experienced BSOD three times caused by DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE related with ntoskrnl.exe.

The first BSOD on Aug 24 was probably related with a heavy CPU usage of a crsytallographic computation. I realized one of the eight threads was 100% used for a couple minutes before the crash.

I replaced optical drive with the original HDD on Aug 25 and updated the bios.
Two BSOD happened today and I wonder if they are related with drivers and how to fix them.

Thank you.

Luke

Hey guys, as the title says I've been getting BSOD about everyday now. I've tried troubleshooting on my own, but that hasn't worked. BCCode associated with them is either d1 or 9f (not sure if this helps).

I've attached the SF log.

I've run memtest86+ and haven't gotten a failure yet. I keep my laptop virus free. I believe my drivers are up to date.

Setup:
-HP dv6t-3100
-intel i5
-575 HDD
-6 RAM
-ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 & Intel HD Graphics

Any help would be great. I will be going to sleep soon (go to work early) but I will be on all day tomorrow.

Thanks!
