Bsod and unexpected reboots

Q: Bsod and unexpected reboots

Hi everyone,
I'm watching the forum long time as unregistered user. So now my first post is true when the rough came up. As mentioned in the title I'm experiencing unexpected reboots and sometimes BSODs.
More details about my new (1week old) system

Mobo: GA 890GPA-UDH3
VGA: On board ATI4290 +128GB DDR3 sideport memory
CPU: PhenomII X4 965 BE 3,4 GHz
Memory: Corsair Kit 2x2GB CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 DDR3 1600
PSU: CoolerMaster RealPower620W
Keyboard/Mouse Microsoft wireless desktop 5000

Last week I installed my new components build up the pc and install a fresh new W7 Ultimate 64bit. After OS I installed gigabyte drivers. In the mean time windows update took place. so may be some drivers were already installed from windows update. Afterwards I installed AVASt home antivirus.

Later I experienced my first reboot, one hour after a BSOD and so on...
For the record there were no overclocking setting
After reading some related posts I did the following:

1. Manual setting for the memory timings 9-9-9-9-24 and voltage 1,65V as stated from corsair
2. BIOS update
3. Uninstall AVAST / install Microsoft Essentials
4. Download latest drivers from gigabyte and install them.

Still facing the same at least one reboot or BSOD daily. It is random and not after specific software/application excecution.

Finally I downloaded autoruns+Windows7&Vista and collected related files as suggested in other thread.

I had a business trip so i didnt spent more time to investigate the issue.

I would appreciate if you could give me a hint

Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Bsod and unexpected reboots

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.)

This started 2 days ago and has happened 5 times since then.  There have been no warnings/errors/BSOD, just random shut down as if it was an unplugged desktop (laptop with full charged battery).  After crash, reboots to options of safe mode as system did not shut down properly.
The specifics: 
This is a Dell Inspiron 5737, only 7 months old
OS is Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium
Everything is updated
I have run all system diagnostic utilities available, including CHKDSK, with no errors reported and no issues anywhere
Dell tech support lied to me yesterday and told me they fixed it by unchecking the "Automatically Restart" box under "Startup and Recovery" and telling me it was an issue with a windows update that caused the crashes, yet the same thing happened again this morning, so apparently they didn't fix anything and just installed a couple of Dell optimization programs, each triggered AVG warnings and have since been removed.
If anyone can tell me what is going on here and how I can remedy this problem I would greatly appreciate it.

For about a week now something strange occasionally happens while I'm using my computer. It suddenly shuts down and reboots completely on it's own.
When it reboots its shows the "Windows was not shut down properly" screen with the "Start windows normally" choice highlighted. I do so and I'm back in business. But I never know when it's going to happen again. Today was the third time during the period I described.
Any idea what's causing these unexpected reboots?

A:Unexpected reboots

What version of Windows are you using ? That sounds like a recent version of Windows, like 8 or 10. But you posted in the DOS / other forum? DOS predates Windows 1.0.

Try going into Control Panel > Device Manager and see if there are any yellow icons. If so, see what the error messages says in it's Properties. And try to right click Update the driver.

I recently purchased an Acer 5740G notebook computer. Windows 7 Home Premium was pre-installed.After only a few weeks of use the machine began to spontaneously reboot. Sometimes this can occur three or more times at intervals of less than 30 minutes and sometimes it can run for more than a day without any observable problem.I have run a thorough chkdsk on the hard drive, run sfc /scannow and five passes of Memtest-86 v3.5. All of these showed no errors or violations. I have also regularly run "Advanced System Care Professional" and "CC Cleaner" (amongst others) to check and repair registry errors, application paths, etc. I can't see any correlation with any application or process. It can happen in the middle of anything I am doing, or when the computer is idle.Below is a copy of the "Hijack This" log and I wonder of it gives any indication of a system or software problem.

About once a day my screen suddenly goes black and the computer commences a reboot. I can find no common factor in either what I'm doing at the time or how long the computer has been running; it seems to happen at completely random times. I don't think it is an overheating problem as it has done it, though rarely, soon after the initial boot up. It has never done it twice in a session, even when I've been working for several hours. To my knowledge I don't have any programs that do updates followed by reboots except those that remind me beforehand. I've had the problem for several weeks. Any suggestions please?

A:Unexpected Reboots[moved from xp]

Hi whizzkid3

I'll let the malware-experts in the Security forums give you their feedback on the log, they have more experience in HJT logs (they'll give their feedback in your thread over there). I don't see anything at first glance.

Once you get a clean-bill of health from our Security experts:

Try changing a setting: right-click "My Computer", select "Properties", then "Advanced", and in the "Startup & Recovery" section - click on "Settings", then in the "System Failure" section - remove the checkmark from the box "Automatically Restart". If a fatal STOP error is occurring, this will let you see it. Copy it down & post it here.

Also check in your Event logs for errors that coincide with the restarts. Go to the Event Viewer to view the logs - it's in the "Administrative Tools" in the Control Panel (in "Performance and Maintenance" if you have Control Panel set to the category view). To view the details of an Event - right-click it and select "Properties".

Best of luck
. . . Gary

... I noticed that you have had many malware scanners active recently -- have any infections been found recently? If not, what symptoms have led to your wish to reinstall?

First of all, thanks for being here to offer advice. This problem has been driving me crazy.

About two months ago, my relatively new W7 x64 machine started rebooting without warning. Lately the problem has escalated slightly in that it's also occasionally throwing BSODs, though not all that frequently. Please see the .zip file for all the sordid details. The reboots are the really annoying thing: they seem to have become more frequent recently and can happen three or four times a day now. Sometimes they'll even happen if the login screen isn't touched for ten or fifteen minutes after boot-up.

I started investigating this problem by looking at the minidumps and trying to isolate and remove the more obvious possibilities: a rather elderly Wacom tablet (now uninstalled, though it never caused any trouble before November), a new Lexmark printer (which was added to the system in November, also now uninstalled). The uninstallations have made no difference to the reboots, which continue to happen at unpredictable intervals.

The system is a custom build from Scan in the UK, delivered to me at the end of July '10. The processor is an Intel Core i3 530 2.93Ghz (overclocked to I think 6 Ghz.) on a Gigabyte H55M-UD2H motherboard with 4G of CMX memory, Artic Freezer Pro and Akasa Amberfans. There are two Samsung HDs (500G system drive and 1 T storage drive) and two Optiarc DVDs: everything's in an Antec 300 case with a Corsair 650W PSU. Display adapter is an ATI Radeon HD ... Read more

I m having trouble diagnosing a problem.
Im using a 3d program on XP. I was experiencing hangups and crashes and when rendering a frame sequence the computer would crash to desktop or sometimes reboot itself or sometimes just say completed when it wasnt done all the frames. IF any ones knows about 3d rendering then you will know that each frame is rendered seperately to make a sequence of completed frames with the color, texture and lighting baked into a single image frame.

I have a feeling it is hardware but it may also be software. or a combination of both.I think it may be hardware because even in WoRD i was having weird things happen like when i went to paste and copy an image to make labels it was pasting the copied image into the cell but it was appearing as a white box only. but if I saved and restarted the program it would then show the correct image file in full color. As soon as I tried to copy and paste the image again it would do a couple correctly but then it would paste these white blank boxes and I would have to restart the program to see them correctly.????weird i know

I have reinstalled the OS to win2000 and that seemed to fixed the hangups and freezes so far when working in the 3D program. But when rendering it rebooted once so far before it was done the sequence. I have turned off the system failure option to reboot when there is a system failure and so far when testing it doesn reboot itself but it will say my render is completed before it gets alll of t...

A:Unexpected Reboots, And Occasional Bsods

Thanks for the dump file, it'll help in narrowing down things. The crash occurred in win32k.sys - a core Windows system file. Although this is where the crash occurred, it's not necessarily the reason for the crash.The parameter c0000005 indicates that the crash occurred due to a memory operation. The actual operation was that it was told to access a memory location that did not exist.The process name that it's associated with is spoolsv.exe. This is the Microsoft Printer Spooler Service and is another critical part of the OS.So, in short, there's a problem with a driver accessing memory that doesn't exist and the print spooler is involved in this. So, I'd suggest uninstalling your printer to see if the BSOD events stop. If they do, then download a new copy of your printer driver from the manufacturer's website and install that.If they don't stop, then it's likely that either remnants of the driver remain (and are causing the BSOD) and need to be removed or that there's a corruption in the Microsoft Printer Spooler Service. If the latter, then we may have to resort to SFC.EXE /SCANNOW or a repair install to correct it.Another option is to enable Driver Verifier (without uninstalling anything), and see if it'll force a BSOD which names the driver (you'd have to perform an analysis of the BSOD event to locate it). To enable Driver Verifier, use this link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/244617Two important points when usi... Read more

Hello, Im new to theese forums, but I bumbed in here while driving down on the google highway, searching answers for my problem.

So, here is the story of my past week.
I decided to update my old computer a bit and ended up buying a SSD for OS, new mobo, new DDR and a new case.
I did a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit on the SSD and formatted the old partition that was for the Windows installation.
There we no errors during the install.
Now during gaming or running BOINC, my PC just reboots, no BSOD or anything, like complete powercut and restart.
This leaves no error message to the event messages, except for an error that Windows was shut down unexpected.
Ive tried a whole lot of tips and tricks.
One interesting thing was that the computer had restarted while running memtest86+ in Windows, I wasnt at my computer while it had happened, so I do not know if it said anything.
Ive completed Disk Check before Windows boot, Ive done sfc /scannow and it completed 100%.
Ive upgraded my BIOS to the ASUS Latest, NVidia drivers updated aswell, ive returned the stocksettings for BIOS, made sure that there is nothing there to OC it automatically.
Seems like something happens during load usually.
Atm my computer is running memtest86+ v4.2 USB Boot, gonna make sure if its the memory problem.
During the test, Id like to hear if anyone has any ideas on what to test next if the memtest doesnt bring up any problems.
Thanks beforehand,

- H

I can't believe that this kind of service exists for free... You must be a very generous group of people!!

I am using a Sony VAIO (VGN-NR498E), with Vista SP1, and Kaspersky Internet Security. KIS has not detected any malware today, although a few days ago, utorrent.exe was identified as "Trojan.generic," and I uninstalled and deleted the file. Additionally, my online banking password was changed last night (There is a small chance that I just forgot what it was, since I've been changing all of my passwords lately.. but I don't believe that is the case). I have only had this loptop for a couple weeks. I got it because my last one was infected with something and I couldn't even start Windows, within only 2 days of it beginning to act funny (I suspected a keylogger)..

I have no idea what is going wrong.
The model is an Acer Aspire One netbook (10.1 D270).

After a few minutes, it just reboots. This happened recently.

How can I diagnose the problem?

I can see nothing strange in eventvwr.

I would like to try some diagnosis before I try the shotgun trial-and-error approach (system restore, reinstall windows, change hardware).

memory diagnostic and disk checking (the tools that run with a restart) returned no errors.

Any suggestions?

I understand that I haven't provided much info, but I'm not sure what to provide.

There is no BSOD.

I don't believe a minidump is created either.

Temperature is within expected bounds (no higher than 45)

Also happens in safe mode.

Also, the RAM is not original, I'll try replacing the original chip.

If it turns out to be the RAM, what tool/s should I use to verify its integrity?
Also, there is no CD drive. So I need a USB boot utility if anything but the standard windows test (which I ran only with default settings).

Hello Silmeria .... though it is not a BSOD, still I'd suggest you to post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions. The files obtained this way will help us to have a closer look to the issue.

My computer is randomly rebooting and I'm getting random error messages saying something has shut down unexpectedly. Sometimes when the computer reboots I get a message telling me "Windows has recovered from a serious error". The last time it did this when the machine rebooted it came up to Check Disk and ran a scan, which found nothing.

I've scanned with MSE, MBAM and SAS. I have a complete ghost of the system from the 30th of December 2010.

This machine was recently cleaned with help from y'all but it still seems to be a little flaky.

Here's the link to the last thread on this machine;

My problems began a while back and I thought I had beaten them but maybe I didn't clean everything as well as I thought.

I frequently run low on hard disk memory on the partition where my OP is located and I have been moving things around between disks to free up space. The PC is often slow and I have presumed that this is a memory problem, however I'm often in the middle of running a program (especially Ad-Aware and Spybot) when the machine reboots spontaneously. I had to run GMER 8-9 times before I got a log.

Hello Everyone.

I have recently had a dump file appear in C:\Windows\Minidump
I don't know what might have Caused it.I am uploading it here if someone wants to look at it along with a file of my pc info. My thoughts are that it has something to do with an audio problem. If I connect any audio devices such as my yeti blue mic, or my scarlet 2i4 audio interface, it seems to blue screen shortly after connecting them via usb. Although that is not always the case because I have blue screened when the devices weren't even connect. I could be completely wrong but just thought I'd add my thoughts.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows.

I just had an awful BSOD encounter while peacefully surfing the web, and being the pessimist that I am, I expect this to happen again if I don't find out what's wrong.
I followed the instructions on how to create a dump file, and they are attached in this thread.

I am using Windows 7 Professional x64. (OEM, I think. It was free from the MSDNAA program.)
System hardware and OS installation about 8 months old. I keep my BIOS and drivers up to date.

If anyone with experience from BSOD issues could take a look at my files, I would be very grateful.


A:(Unexpected) BSOD out of nowhere

Hello and Welcome !

The Dump are pointing to tdx.sys i.e NetIO Legacy Transport Driver Interface (TDI) Support driver. Which is a part of Microsoft so most probably that won't be the issue.

Uninstall Duplex Driver sptd.sys use this link ofr reference DuplexSecure - FAQ . Then uninstall Kaspersky temporarily. Uninstall from Add / Remove Programs then run the Cleanup Tools Removal tool for Kaspersky Lab products

Update your Network / Wireless Lan cards because the driver that has caused to crash is related to Network. Check the below links Broadcom Corporation - Download NetLink Drivers or Broadcom Corporation - Download NetLink Drivers

If still the System crashes after doing all these. Then Enable Driver Verifier Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers

I have a problem with my laptop. I have a Sony VAIO VGN-FW290J with 4GB RAM memory, running Microsoft Windows 7 Professional x64 and I have received about 4 BSOD in few days. From what I have noticed, I have to mention that all these occurred when I was running uTorrent (having about 13-15 active torrents - about 75GB total). I am not sure this is the reason, but I found this to be the common point of all crashes. The BSODs raised up not in a petitioner moment of the laptop. The max download speed I can reach is about 3MB/s. I also must say that 2 of the crashes happened in full download speed (just mentioned). I updated the driver of my WiFi card (Intel 5100AGN) and I have received a new BSOD even with the latest driver.
I have played few games on it, the newest one being the new Call of Duty 6 - Modern Warfare 2 and there was no problem.

I'd be glade if anybody will answer and help me solve this problem, since it is very annoying for me.

I am a moderately-high experienced computer user who recently finished designing and building his own tower PC. I had originally intended to install Windows XP on this machine, but received a free upgrade to Windows 7 with the purchase of Vista and so went that route instead.

So I'm running an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 3.0 GHz w/ 8 Gb RAM on Vista Home Premium x64.

My problem is that the computer will Blue Screen without any particular warning signs. The symptoms of the problem are that the computer will run smoothly for several hours to a day or more, before crashing very suddenly. I have been unable to force-ably recreate the problem, and all of the drivers have been updated, rolled-back, and re-updated already.

Please find attached several *.dmp files which may aid in diagnosing this problem. I have probably thirty or so such minidumps from the past two weeks. Please inquire if you have any further questions, or if you require more information. Thank you!

A:Unexpected BSOD's

All of the BSOD's point to gdrv.sys - which is a part of the Windows Operating system. In general, if there cause points to a Windows component, we troubleshoot the drivers that access that component (presuming that the Windows files are OK).

In this case, each of the errors occurred in the GUI.EXE process. This process is usually associate with a spyware program that goes by many different names.

But, the debugger states that it couldn't find the symbols for gdrv.sys. Since the symbols are standardized on the Microsoft server - I'd have to wonder if there is corruption of the gdrv.sys driver.

I'd first suggest running SFC.EXE /SCANNOW from an elevated (run as adminsitrator) Command Prompt. If that does not fix it (or if it generates errors), then I'd suggest a trip over to the Security forums to see if there's an infection that's causing this. The Security forums are located here: System Security - Vista Forums

Here's a list of the older drivers:

A:An unexpected BSOD

Your system has 75 updates installed, my Win7 x64 system has 87. Please check with Windows Update to ensure that you have all the available updates.

Due to the presence (in the dump) of drivers belonging to your Panda Cloud Antivirus - I'd suggest the following:

Anti-Virus Removal:
Please do the following:
- download a free antivirus for testing purposes: Free AntiVirus
- uninstall the Panda Cloud Antivirus from your system (you can reinstall it, if so desired, when we're done troubleshooting)
- IMMEDIATELY install and update the free antivirus
- check to see if this fixes the BSOD's
NOTE: If anyone knows of a link for a Panda Cloud Removal tool, please PM me.

- Please update these drivers from the device manufacturer's website.
- DO NOT use Windows Update or the Update Drivers function of Device Manager.
- Windows Update exceptions may be noted below for Windows drivers:

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.

A:Unexpected BSOD's

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps

I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices.These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 and later systems - using older drivers with them is almost certain to cause a BSOD.Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have the latest W7/8/8.1/10 drivers - DO NOT use older drivers!!!An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful. If you persist in using it, download the driver on another computer.Then copy it to a flash drive and carry it over to the other computer. As for the BSOD's:Please run this report collecting tool so that we can provide a complete analysis:  http://omgdebugging.com/bsod-inspector/When done a Notepad document will open with the name of the file and it's location.

Hello good people!

I am definitely not a computer guru - thus my post here - but am learning. Built a few computers with some help from more knowledgeable friends. Can work thru problems with assistance.

So... I installed a fresh Windows 7 Professional 64 bit OS on my new custom system (hopefully you can see my system specs from my registration?) and have had intermittent BSOD's.... never while I have been working on the system.

Seems like they are always waiting for me in the morning when I revive my computer from 'sleep' mode.... or when I do the same after a period of non-use during the day.

I have attached the .zip file of the error report. It seems like there may be two targeted issues "caused by driver":
I have no idea what these are, what they mean, nor how to fix them. Can you help?

I sincerely appreciate your patience in working with me, a computer neophyte.

Hi. You may follow this.


In the meantime and in between time, you could look into updating your chipset/motherboard drivers to latest available. Install latest bios if there's a new one too.

I was advised to post the dumps, as in this thread: Unexpected Shutdown

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

Event log keeps giving an event 41 error, so that I get a BSOD, but everything happens so fast that the BSOD doesn't even show up.

I'm not even sure that a memory dump had been created..

A:unexpected shutdown BSOD

Good job! Pain55,

I placed a referal link to here back at your original thread.

I have to agree about those .dmp files. You need special programs to read them.
I have been looking at this link: Configuring the "Debugging Tools"

I hope once I read through it enough, and understand how to set up the tools on my machine I will be able to help more.

I hope someone can help me with this problem. I have several machines running Win 7 32 bit. For some reason these machines will just freeze up or reboot, 2 to 3 times a day. Here is all the info that I have. Also I have 4 encoder and 1 decoder cards in these machines. All the drivers are updated to the latest, and I have MSE installed.

Once I reboot the machines I will get the following message: Unexpected shutdown:

A:BSOD (Unexpected shutdown)

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
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:

* 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:

* 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).

This BSOD occurred when I changed the performance setting from 'Performance' to 'Power Save' in ASUS AI Suite 3. Can some one interpret the dump file (attached) please?

Thanks in advance.


A:Unexpected BSOD error

I don't recommend using programs like ASUS AI suite as they can cause a lot of problems.

Anyway, the bugchecks you are having point to hardware.

Run these hardware tests:
Stress test your CPU with Prime95

I recommend running Prime95 for around 2 hours


As with most stress tests your component's temperature will rapidly increase.
It is advised that you download a temperature monitoring program like HWmonitor
Keep an eye on your temperatures and stop the tests if it starts to overheat

Stress test your graphics card with Furmark

I recommend running it for around 30 minutes


Furmark will increase the temperature of your GPU rapidly so keep and eye on your temperatures

Memtest86 will test your RAM


Run Memtest86 for at least 8 passes so we get enough information to confirm that your RAM isn't failing

Run a Disk Check to scan for errors


Afterwards go into an Elevated Command Prompt (Run as administrator) and type in sfc /scannow
If it finds errors reboot and run the scan two more times

Run SeaTools to see if your HDD or SSD is failing

Post back the results.

I am not super technical but I am hoping I can find some answers here.

Emachines EL1333
Windows 7 Home 64bit

I just purchased this computer from Best Buy in December. Sometime in January it just started crashing randomly. It started with the monitor just suddenly losing the signal and I would have to force it to shut down. Then it started freeezing whenever I watched a video or played a game. The screen would lock up and the computer would make a stuttering noise and then I would get the BSOD. Now it just happens randomly (though I do still get it sometimes when watching a video).

A friend suggested it could be my video card driver. I have updated it to the most current one from the nvidia website and it seemed to work fine for a short time but now it is back to the same thing.

I have uploaded the files from the collection app but perfmon/report didn't give me any results.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I will try to provide any information that I can.


A:Unexpected Shutdown BSOD

Hello and welcome to 7 Forums,

Can you please enable Driver Verifier? (see information below)


Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

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

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

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like. From my limited experimentation it mak... Read more

A:Unexpected Shut Down - BSOD :(

tcpip.sys was the cause of one of your blue screens, I'm not too sure on what this does, but from my search results it looks like a virus scan would be a good idea

The other seemed to be related to direct X, update all your direct X files, and check o see if your graphics drivers are update to date too

Someone else should be able to assist you soon too But I suggest you try these for now

Our server, running Windows 7 Professional 64bit as host for several Virtualbox guests, had a bsod last night, during the backup routine. This is the first time such a thing has happened since the server was put into production this March 2012. The bsod occurred while all the guests were shut down and the main guest, SBS2003, was getting copied.
Could anyone please let me know what happened?

Run the built in memory diagnostic to see if that points to anything (at the bottom of the Safe Mode screen).

Hi guys, I encountered BSOD for the first time. Very annoying. Right now I have to run this on Safe Mode in order to access the internet. I also noticed I can't use Firefox right now, and instead am using iE. I couldn't run the the performance scan report either (time out?), but I did attach the dump file (.rar). But here's what I have... any direction is appreciated. When I get a chance, I'll at least back up my files to my external HD while in Safe Mode, which seems stable enough so far.

I have been dealing with mostly random shutdowns with the occassional BSOD for quite a while.
I have run Memtest 86+ but cannot get it to scan more than about an hour and a half before it freezes. I am not too familiar with how this program is supposed to work but here is what happens. Computer booths up into memtest 86+ starts to run lasts about 15 seconds and reboots this happened twice more before it finally gets going so far I have gotten one error on one Bit at memory 2178.9 MB the assurance code is 154, if this means anything this error was generated after running for almost 2 Hrs. at this point the computer rebooted and ran for about 2 minutes before freezing the code was then 163. On another occasion that I ran memtest 86 the program froze with the screen showing withe lines on a blue back ground with a red bar at the top and a white bar at the bottom.
I have not been able to install the SF_diagnostic_tool, I get an error (see attached file) I have minidump files but don't know how to get them without sf-diagnostic. I am logged in as administrator

A:BSOD and unexpected shutdown in Windows 7 64 Bit

Hi .
A single error is enough in my books the RAM cannot be trusted anymore, so posting the crash dumps wouldn't
be much helpful until we get rid of the failing module.

You describe a situation where you cannot test the RAM without the PC freezing, how are you loading MEMTest86+
i.e. via a CD / USB?

Start testing the modules one at a time and let each module complete between 8-10 passes or until errors are found,
whichever comes first. You can also determine whether it's a particular slot / module following this logic;

How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

First run it with all the existing/installed RAM modules. If it comes with no error, all is good.

But if it starts showing errors, Stop testing. Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.

For a few weeks now I have been getting recurring BSODs. I ran a memory and disk check and the BSODs stopped for a few days. Then today I got another BSOD.

I'm also a bit confused as to how to read a minidump file. I used the program WhoCrashed and it came up with this:

6 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. A third party driver has been identified to be causing system crashes on your computer. It is strongly suggested that you check for updates for these drivers on their company websites. Click on the links below to search with Google for updates for these drivers:

Not too sure how to update this particular driver.

A:unexpected BSOD after hanging my computer

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

BTW, all the events as per the event log is the same ...

The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort2.
You are using the native controllers. Then what you need to rey is to unplug the device from Port 2 to another unused port.

Definitely a crash dump will help to go deeper, but you should try this at first.
