BSOD: Video driver crash.

Q: BSOD: Video driver crash.

Hello,

I was playing a game in google chrome and also had a youtube video open in another tab. Suddenly my screen went black, Windows Aero effects were off for a few seconds, then they went back up. White bars started to appear randomly on the screen, an error popped up that the Video Driver had crashed. After a couple of seconds it looked like it was getting back but then the screen went black again and the BSOD appeared.
It is the first time this has happened. I hope you people might be able to find the exact cause and offer a solution.

Thank you in advance,

Gert.

Backstory:

I rebuilt my PC with a bunch of new parts and am having some new problems. The problem that I was investigating was the failure of my Marvell 9120 Sata 3 ports on my Asrock P67 Extreme4 Gen3. The ports failed before my RAM overclock attempts, and I will try to include everything in a proper timeline.

New components into my formerly stable rebuild:

Seasonic 1000w Platinum, 4 additional hard drives (2 SSD), Startech 9128 PCI-e SATA card, Overclocked my GTX 480 SLI cards, overclocked my RAM.

Problems presented before RAM and GTX 480 OC, but after the new computer was checked for stability. GTX 480 cards were recently overclocked, but stable during hard gaming and high res mods in Skyrim.

My SATA 3 ports were dead, but I didn't make that determination until today. I wasn't sure if they had completely failed, or if it was a driver conflict with my new card, so I tried various BIOS settings to the onboard Marvell 9120 controller. During that time tinkering, my computer refused to boot after I set the onboard Marvell controller to "bootable". It would hang before the Windows animation took place, but after the Windows text showed up during boot.

I then tried to reset the BIOS setting to turn off the bootable Marvell option, but it still would not boot. It only booted after I reset my RAM to stock settings. I got into Windows and ran sfc /scannow and no errors were found, although Windows prompted me to try to repair startup, and failed ... Read more

I went to the UFC's website and clicked on one of the video's they had embedded in their scrolling news on the home page. The screen went black and then came back, saying that the video driver had shutdown and recovered. I refreshed the page, assuming it was just a glitch. I clicked the same video to watch it and my computer seized up and I got a blue screen. I didn't have enough time to read everything on the blue screen, but I caught a little bit saying that Windows had encountered an error with the video driver and needed to shut down. The computer rebooted a bit sluggishly, but now appears to be fine. Any ideas as to whether this is a problem with my video card's driver or the video on the site? Videos elsewhere work fine.

Hi,

First you can download Speccy to check the temprature of the display card,mainboard to see whether it's normal:
http://www.piriform.com/speccy
Then you can try to reinstall the driver of the display card or upgrade the driver.

Recently I've been having a problem where my display driver hangs. For most games this means I have to wait for my computer to unfreeze to get into the task manager and kill the game. It happens randomly when gaming and is not linked to temperature (All temps well within normal, GPU never going over 73C).

As far as I can tell, this issue exists no matter what game I play. I first noticed it in Cities Skylines about 2 months ago (I had been playing CS for many months prior with no problems).

For Mass Effect 1 it gets a bit strange. In Mass Effect 1 when it happens, it would either be a relatively short freeze before my computer starts responding (and the game is able to recover) or a very long freeze, long enough that my monitor loses signal, then it comes back and I have to kill the game through the task manager. Eventually I get a little popup notifying me that the driver stopped responding and has recovered. Sometimes though with the long freezes the game will come back but it seems to take quite a while. And apparently when it won't recover, crash dumps report TDR timeout with atikmpag.sys, obviously. I don't know what my TDR timeout is set to right now but I assume it's pretty high for my display to lose signal and recover instead of BSODing, which I suppose is nice.

But here's the strange part, when I get those momentary freezes I have to ctrl+alt+del, otherwise it will not unfreeze. I assume I must be interrupting something. I disabled smooth... Read more

Hey TSG...

My video driver just crashed while I was watching a movie ("Got stuck in an infinity loop"). I got this before so Im not too worried, but I never got it from out of nowhere like this before.

Should I be worried?

After a reboot, now Windows is failing to recognize a device (Perhaps need to reinstall the drivers) that it is using and working fine :/

Thanks for any feedback
 

A:Video driver crash

An infinity loop can be caused by a lot of things. To name a few: Heat, bad memory and driver and hardware conflicts. It's often very difficult to find the problem of infinity loops.

Do you have a spare video card that is compatible with your motherboard? If so, test it. I don't know how often you get the infinity loop errors, but if it's often I would test a different video card and see if you still get the errors.

A:NVIDIA video driver crash

Are you overclocking your video card at all? The error is exactly as it says. The video driver crashed for some reason, but luckily nvidia drivers are built to recover/reset when this happens rather than hanging the entire system.

I have found this driver version to be very helpful for my nvidia graphic issues.

Download it from here.

That is the 64bit version I assume you need by looking at your OS you listed.

Hello,

My display driver seems to crash on specific games and it is not because my card can't handle it since it crashes on low-end games aswell, while it still can handle some newer games just fine. The frequency of the crashes can be reduced by underclocking my card to down from 800 to 750Hz. I have tried many solutions with each one having no success. I've swept my drivers, downgrading and upgrading the version (currently on 12.10) and also bought a new PSU, upgrading from a weak coolmaster to a XFX PRO550.

I have no idea on what to try next. Does anyone have any idea on fixing this issue?

I got an ASUS M51 laptop 2 years ago with Vista Ultimate 32. I felt
pretty good about the machine, until I connected a second LCD monitor
with DVI connection. Connecting with VGA port had no crash problem,
but I prefer using DVI with a HDMI/DVI cable. Using non-Aero theme had
no problem.

Occasionally the system reported graphic card driver crashed and tried
to recover. Sometimes the system recovered, more often not, leading to
total crashing of Windows.

Surely I did the following:
1. Reinstall the latest graphic drivers.
2. Reinstall the latest ASUS splendid utilities.
3. Keep Windows patches updated.
4. Install and uninstall some Windows hot fixes, as suggested by some
newsgroups' posts.
5. Many other methods.

This link provided a lot possible solutions.

Display Driver atikmdag and nvlddmkm Stopped Responding

I'm currently running a ATI Radeon HD7700 and frequently whenever I'm gaming my screen would freeze, flicker black and return to normal but with a message saying driver has stopped responding.
However, I've also had it when the driver crashes. my whole computer becomes pretty much unresponsive (cursor still moves though) and ALL running programs freeze while setting my performance to 100%.
I've tried updating, reinstalling ,using older version of the driver but nothing has worked. I don't get a blue screen either and end up having to shut it down w/ power button.

Ok, so recently I have been having a serious problem with my video card and/or the drivers. It seems to happen most when flash is being used in a web page.

I've re-installed both flash and chrome (my browser of choice) and rolled back/re-installed my video drivers.

When it freezes, the whole screen stops, the sound gets drawn out, does that for about 20-50 seconds, then goes back to normal, although sometimes the video (eg a movie) has to be restarted.

I am really tired of this happening, because since most web-ads use flash, a crash can happen anytime.

Thanks in advance!

This is just for informational purposes, I have solved this issue but thought I'd share it since I see so many youtube issues on this forum.

One of the laptops in my house (one I don't use personally) would not load youtube videos correctly. I could go to the site but when it tried to load any video it would freeze for a few seconds, then the screen would black out and come back a second later with an error saying the video driver had crashed but managed to recover. Also the youtube video was completely green.

The solution ended up being turning off hardware acceleration in Adobe flash. Which you can do by right clicking on the youtube video > choose Settings > uncheck hardware acceleration.

I hope this proves useful to people with similar problems.

Hello,

I have a bsod when I use a Dsp (sharc) Pci card (UAD1). The driver is Hypkern64.sys.

The position of the vendor is that the motherboard is perhaps incompatible with this Dsp card because of the Irq sharing.

So I don't need help to find why I have these Bsod, but perhaps someone could help me to explain to the vendor that they could do something in the driver, like in this thread.

Some other informations :

The motherboard, a supermicro x8sax has 3 Pcie slots, 1 Pci 32 bits, and 2 Pci-x.
All the slots share the same irq (n?16) and the vendor say that it's the problem.
But, when I insert the Dsp card in the Pci slot everything work correctly, no BSOD.
One thing I noticed is that the 2 Pci-x slots are connected to the X58 hub (with an Intel PHX/V) instead of the ICH10R for the Pci slot.

So, if you can help, thank you !

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.

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Sometimes, usually when I tweaked a little with the system, like increased the voltage over the ram modules or removed a network card which I didn't use, reinstall windows, the system would be stable for days before the bsod's came in big numbers again.

Today I used the driver verifier to see if the problem was driver related. When my computer would start up with driver verifier enabled, the system would crash before it could startup windows. It did however generate a minidump file containing information about the crash.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hello,

I have a m4a78te motherboard,

2 Graphics cards AMD 6850 (Crossfired)

1100 Watt Power supply.

8 gb Gskill ram

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x64
- the original installed OS on the system?
No, freshly installed (1 month ago)
- an OEM or full retail version?
Windows 7 home edition x64 purchased from a retailer. I built the PC myself and installed windows myself

- What is the age of system (hardware)?
1 year old
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?)

My CPU acts like clockwork when it crashes. Same steps for the type of crash

1) When computer is cold. First time start of the day. System crashes when gaming BSOD error (no specific error code)
2) Reboot 6 or 7 times
3) Computer POSTS but does not load windows
4) Reboot 5 or 6 times
5) Computer loads windows
6) Play a game (just cause 2)
7) System crashes (Bug code USB driver error)
8) After the second crash. System seems to work fine (see below)

This has happened 3 days in a row now. Weirdest part is, after the CPU has warmed up (on for like a half hour) CPU doesn't crash all day (left it on one time for 2 days straight with a game playing)

Been a tech guy for a while, built this PC myself and I am so perplexed about what is going on. Please help and let me know if you need any more system information.

I believe this to be a hardware issue, most likey from the motherboard. I just woud appreciate a second opinion.

Hi folks

I have an odd issue that I have come to the end of my knowledge about and I am stuck to be honest.

My fairly new (6 months) PC has a very odd way of crashing on me at completely random times although it does seem to happen more regularly when playing sound or video content (VLC, Spotify, Streaming Movies or TV etc) and it also seems to happen more often if I have bittorrent running in the background.

What basically happens is that the screen will freeze for a moment but the sound will continue to play, then any audio coming from the PC will slow right down (like dropping the pitch really low on a turntable) until it just sounds like electronic noises. The sound will continue to play until I reboot the PC but the screen will not change. Sometime I can still move the mouse, sometime I can't. The only way out of it is to hard reboot the computer.

I have checked all my drivers on numerous occasions, I have had it all apart and checked the hardware connections, virus checked and done a full clean reinstall of win 7 but still the same problem...

Any one out there had anything similar????

Thanks

Hello, everyone. I just got back to my PC after a my first year of college, and when I first started it up it bluescreened. I didn't manage to catch the error before it rebooted, then changed to a black screen said that there was no hard disk to boot with.
So I turned it off, turned it back on, and it booted just fine. I ran a full system scan with Avast to check for malware, updated some games on Steam, and basically did my best to get my computer up to speed since it had been off for so long (while I did use it during long breaks). While the Avast scan was running I played World of Warcraft for about an hour or two, and bam--another bluescreen. The error message said something along the lines of "Display drivers failed to restart," but again I couldn't catch the rest because it rebooted, coming up with the same black screen as before. So I turned it off.
When I booted it up for a third time Avast opened almost immediately and asked to restart my computer and run a scan of the startup files. So I obliged; it seemed like it scanned my whole system again, which lasted for an hour or two, and it seems like it moved Malwaregen and corrupted files to the chest. When it was done my computer booted normally. I installed some Windows updates and a new Nvidia driver, figuring that something was outdated, and once again started playing World of Warcraft. This time it didn't bluescreen; instead, the screen froze after ten minutes and turned a solid color. My PC rebooted almos... Read more

I'm pretty overwhelmed with what's going on at the moment with my computer. I've tried to look for other people's posts which are similar, but to no avail.

As of yesterday, my computer has been having a series of problems:

1) Blue Screen with notification "Driver_Power_State_Failure" 0x03

2) When I try to startup normally, it freezes whenever something is minimised, or within a couple of minutes of it displaying the desktop. (this may have something to do with the taskbar, as I have noticed that it only freezes when certain programs (ie. VNC or similar) are automatically started on startup)

3) sometimes freezes on Login on a black screen with the mouse hovering.

4) Suddenly shuts down like the battery has been unplugged (no "Windows is shutting down" or anything, I'd be in the middle of doing something and then BAM its off)

5) Can't access my computer to either update drivers or post on forums (no internet access with normal logon, internet only works in Safe Mode)
hence, I am posting from my parents' computer.

Note: Mouse is able to move during all 'freezes'. It is not the computer being slow, becuase I left it for hours a couple of times and have come back to either a BSoD or nothing has changed.

From the title it seems so ... still asking ... have you faced any such notification popup?
The display chip is a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670. And all the random dumps (from the latest to the earliest) I have checked, it shows a very old display driver, and the same one allover.

Such an old driver may fail by itself only.

Have you ever updated the display driver? If not, install the CCC 14.4 WHQL.

Let us know for any further BSOD after doing it. The reporting will be important, because there may be some more things causing display failure influencing the BSODs.

Hi,

I was on my computer earlier today with a game running when the computer froze for the span of several minutes then went to BSOD and gave a courtesy reboot. As it was booting up there was some patterned graphic distortion (pixels lit white when they should be black) On subsequent startup screens this same type of distortion became worse (though with other color pixels). Once Windows finished its startup process the video input to both monitors was lost. This was repeated on multiple startups. I have tried starting up in safe mode (which works fine) as well as system restore (which did not seem to accomplish anything). This issue does not appear to be in any way related to the game referenced above as I have been running that with some regularity for the last month or two without issue and there is no indication that others running the game have had any issue.

I have copied and pasted a HijackThis log below. I hope that I have included the necessary information here. Please let me know if there is anything that I have missed. Thank you very much for your assistance.

I couldn't find anything useful on the net and on the microsoft kb. the video card was s3 virge / dx on board . s3 375/775 ver. 2. i might have installed the wrong driver. but now i can't go into windows or safe mode or last known good config to chage the driver. i tried seating it in abother slot and i also tried another video card. i also tried changing settings in the bios such as disabling video memory caching and shadowing. and i also tried the defaults but no luck.

What is the computer name and model number. Without that it's hard to tell you how to disable the onboard video because I think this is why you're getting a BSOD. Also not uninstalling the previous card/onboard drivers will cause these types of problems.

Well these were caused by two things. Your video driver which is current and may in fact be crashed by what I suspect is the actual cause. WNDA31vx.sys driver which is your wifi driver is both old and I suspect what is really crashing.

I would un-install both completely and install fresh copies of bot.

I would also run a system file check to repair and verify your system files
(type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow)

If you are overclocking stop

Here is the logs for the most recent crash I had (Which is about 20 mins earlier):

A:BSOD Probably related to video driver

Hi circle26.

Update the display driver to 332.21 WHQL.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Let us know the results. For any further issue, post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Any help, gratefully received as this is used every day as my main tv server and my GF is getting a bit ratty over the crashes.

cheers

A:BSOD - possible video driver issue..?

Your mini dump shows a stop error code of 7E. This a hardware or hardware related issue.
