Really weird Blue Screen of Death problem........

Q: Really weird Blue Screen of Death problem........

Hi guys, got a really annoying and weird problem. First of all, i'm using a laptop running WinXP SP3. I've got most of the latest updates so it's stable.

I have A LOT of antivirus programs (FULL VERSIONS) and so I'm pretty sure, if not 99% sure that i have a good defence and have maintained my PC well. I did a lot of scans recently and found no viruses or spywares etc.....

Just to give a list of what I use, and btw they're all up to date and the newest version as of 2009.

RegCure 1.6
Advanced SystemCare 3.2
Avast Antivirus 2009
BitDefender 2009
CCleaner
Combofix
Error Repair Professional 3.9.9
Spyware Blaster
Uniblue SpeedUpMyPC 2009
Spyware Guard
Webroot Spysweeper
WinUtilities
Quicksys RegCleaner 2009
Safe'n'Sec 2009
SUPERAntiSpyware Professional 4.26
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.38 PRO
Advanced System Protector
and so on.......seriously, I have ****loads of protection and no i don't run all fo them at the same time or on startup, but only some really important ones so no there aren't any conflicts etc.....
Anyway I did the scans and found no virus, maybe one or 2 registry fixes and optimization but that's about it. My PC is totally clean and safe, it's always been like this since ages ago. My PC is up to date with everything, including drivers etc.......

I use Firefox with good protection addons, e.g. addons like Adblock Plus etc.......I also use Opera, i NEVER use Internet Explorer but I did update it to IE8 and also use IE7 Pro to further protect it in case I really have to use IE for whatever reason....
Anyway I'm not keylogged or anything, I can safely say that i'm at an advanced level so i know what i'm doing. Just to let you guys know, there's nothing wrong with my PC.

Ok so finally onto the problem, it only popped up recently and i have no idea why. Everytime I turn up my PC, i get a bluescreen, it happens maybe 3/4 times when i turn on the PC. And sometimes when i've used the PC for maybe 30 mins to 1 hour or so, the bluescreen will pop up suddenly causing my PC to crash.

This is the bluescreen i get everytime i turn on the PC.

This is the bluescreen i get only when my PC has been running for maybe 30 mins or more.
I haven't installed or downloaded or been to any bad websites so i don't believe it's due to a virus. And plus, I also did some Google searches on my bluescreen error and it's due to bad drivers or hardware problem or something like that.....

the thing is, i've cleaned my drivers using Driver Sweeper (to get rid of old drivers) and i've tried reinstalling all my drivers and everything works fine. I also switched the RAM around and basically replug every hardware that's unpluggable from my laptop and everything all works fine, but the problem still shows up.....
And again, I did registry scans, used antivirus programs etc but found no problem, or at least they fixed it if they found one or 2.......
Sorry for this long post but ya plz help, i've found no solutions on Google.

Should i post a HiJackThis log?

A:Really weird Blue Screen of Death problem........

Seems like one of the bitdefender system files is causing windows to crash, try reinstalling it see if that helps. The tcpip driver seems to be causing a crash too, are your network card drivers up to date? Also I'm not sure you need all those antivirus/anti spyware/PC Optimization programs, as they can cause software conflicts and BSODs, 1 of each is only necessary.

I just built a new computer and had numerous issues with it. I fixed all of them except for one, which still happens. I was browsing the web (which brings me to another problem) and I closed my browser and I got a BSOD. It was a Memory_Management issue. I only got that one time but I knew there was something wrong before that because internet rendering (IE and Firefox) is extremely slow. The BSOD just gave me an idea of where to start troubleshooting. The internet speed coming in is about 25.5mbs download and roughly 2.6mbs upload. I also have another computer on the same network that is extremely fast, so I know it's just this computer. I cannot figure out what's wrong. The specifications are i3-2100 and 8gb of RAM with gigabit Ethernet. It's also a clean install of the OS (Windows 7 Pro 64-bit)

memory management is pretty much exclusive to memory problems.
Generally I tell people to run memtest86 overnight after getting that error.

Two things come to mind:
1. Does your MB support the 2GB of Ram?
2. Bad stick of RAM?

You might want to try removing one of the sticks and try it (if you have two sticks of 1GB. If you still get the same thing swap out with the other one. IF you have 4 you get the ideal.

Greetings! I will try to be as specific about my problem in general.
I am using a Compaq laptop, using Windows XP. I don't know much more than that, but I can search for additional information regarding specs and stuff.

It all started one day when I was browsing the internet using the latest version of Firefox. I turned up my volume and the blue screen of death appeared (advising me to seek tech support of sorts).

I restarted, and yet again touching the volume yielded the blue screen of death. I tried several, possibly 6 times, and the only thing causing the blue screen of death is altering the volume in any way, including touching the volume buttons, adjusting volume in the volume control and adjusting the wave settings in volume control.

So I ran Spyware Doctor. I do pay the full 40 bucks a year for this wonderful program, and it detected a bunch of freaky looking things. Like adaware, something called virtumonde, and all these high threat viruses and adware, but it wiped them clean. I ran it again, it found 3 more standard viruses that it didn't name, cleaned them, ran SWD again and nothing appeared, so I assume now my computer is free from whatever was messing with me.

The volume problem still persists though, and also at random times the blue screen of death will appear (I'm praying now it won't as I type all this or I'll cry).

Then another problem occurred. When I try to open a file of sorts, that pesky message appears- windows explorer has... Read more

A:weird blue screen of death (page fault in nonpaged area)

I havent read the minidump but a page fault in nonpage area is almost always related to your pagefile.sys or your ram.
You can delete your pagefile and reboot and windows will make a new one.
And you can download for free and run memtest86 to test your ram, you have to do it one stick at a time.

To see pagefile.sys you need to have Folder Options | View set to ?Show Hidden and System files?, and not to ?Hide Protected mode System files?.
for your pagefile see here:

have recently started getting the Blue Screen Of Death.
Mainly it happens when I have gone on a website such as YouTube.
Occasionally it happens at other times.

First the computer freezes. Then the message comes up. (It's not on long enough to read all the message or codes.

The message starts something like:
A thread has been excited or terminated and your computer will be shut down to prevent further damage etc. etc.
It ends with: Beginning of physical memory dump.

I have my firewall, antivirus and anti-spyware all enabled.
I have also scanned with Spybot and nothing is ever found.

I am using Windows XP Media Edition

I then have to re-boot and then everything is OK but I also have to leave the computer idle for a few minutes until the hard disk light stops.

Can anyone please advise?

I sometimes get BSODS with my computer when I leave it on for a long time and the laptop is idle like when I go to sleep. Using BlueScreenViewer I found out that the BSOD is caused by two drivers. Atikmdag.sys and ntoskrnl.exe

Im using a Dell Studio 1458 with the specs
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Intel(R) Core(Tm) i7 Cpu Q740
6GB RAM
ATI Radeon Mobility HD 5450

COuld anyone provide me assisstance?

A:Blue Screen of Death ATI Problem?

Just to confirm your apparent thought it does seem to be the ati driver kernel crashing.
ntoskrnl.exe is just a general crash message you get it from all sorts of things. Apparently in this case your ati driver.

The drivers they have listed on dell's site don't seem to have ever been updated. Sadly with the mobility versions of graphics cards you can't be sure if you can use the one released by ati or not, you just have to try.
...it's also possible the digital tuner is causing issues with the ati card.

First thing I would suggest is completely wiping the current ati driver off of there.
Here is a good utility for that. Guru3D - Driver Sweeper (Setup) download from Guru3D.com

Before running that make sure you have a copy of the driver they offer here.
Drivers & Downloads
as well as the newer driver provided by amd/ati
ATI Catalyst

After using the tool to remove the currently present driver I would first try using the ATI provided one, only having the one from dell as a fall back incase it doesn't work properly.

Hi.

At my workplace we have recently upgraded seavel computers with a second ram stick. I had problems with this machine since then. It is a dell dimension 1100 with two sockets for ram, one of which contained a 256mb stick. I got the dell approved 1gb stick, but to install it I had to switch the orginal stick into the spare slot and place the new ram in the first slot, as the computer would not start correctly anyother way (I tried several combeinations before finding this one). I did not have this issue with 2 other identical machines.

Since then, I've been getting blue screens of death seemingly at random. It gives one of 4 or 5 error messages and has to be restarted. It can do this several times a day or work normally for weeks. It also seems to favor a couple of error messages over the others.

I will post more errors as I'm able to collect them.

A:Blue Screen of death problem

My first thought is that you have a bad stick of RAM. Try this:

Remove the 256MB stick and run with just the 1GB and see what happens.
If your problems continue, put the 256MB back and remove the 1GB and check the system out. If all is well, then you have identified the culprit and will need to replace the 1GB stick.

Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences.

The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does.

What I am seeing is the pctools internet security app driver is crashing your internet and then immediately your computer.
I suggest removing pc tools and just switching over to MSE

The asus autoupdate tool may be involved somewhere here, hard to tell but it seems to be sticking also as the crashes are occurring.

Originally had Windows XP installed on another drive that i got rid of already
Full retail version
Hardware about 3 to 4 years old IIRC
Windows 7 was installed half a year ago

AMD II x4 620
ATI radeon 4870
ASUS m4a77td pro mobo
ACBEL 550W

System was DIY.

Additional Information. I recently added 2 sticks of KVR1333d3n9/2G ram from kingston to my mobo and i have been getting crashes since then. I am not entirely sure if its to do with the RAM.

Hi there, I am new to this forum and hope you can help me with my current problem

Currently, I use Windows XP SP3 desktop and my computer is having problem as the start up is "Blue screen of death" keep coming and I tried to restore the system settings and still cannot be resolved

A:How do I fix BAD_POOL_HEADER blue screen of death problem for my XP

Hello gobear and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not an expert in BSODs so until one of the Forum experts comes along there are a couple of things you can try that are similar to what's recommended for Windows 7 computers..

Often a Bad Pool Header BSOD can be traced back to a hard drive issue. Try running Check Disk (Chkdsk).

Windows XP chkdsk - The Details

Another possibility is damaged or corrupt system files. Try running a system file checker scan. Unfortunately, it may require that you have an original installation disk available so the scan can extract clean copies of damaged or corrupt files.

scannow sfc - LEARN how to use SFC.EXE (system file checker)

Another possible fix would be a Repair Install which also requires the installation disk.

Repair Windows XP by Performing a Repair Install (Part 1 of 2)

As I recall, XP wasn't as forgiving when it came to BSODs as Windows 7 is, and fixes were very limited. And none of these suggestions will cure an issue if it's hardware related (failing hard drive, failing RAM, failing motherboard. etc.)

A:Blue Screen of Death Windows 8.1 Problem

Only 929 mB of free RAM. I'd suggest adding more RAM if you are able (and if the system can handle it). If not, then please check your startup items to make sure nothing unnecessary is loading - and only run 1 program at a time (in order to conserve the RAM that you do have).

Please uninstall Razer Game Booster as it is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems.

Please update your wired, wireless, and BitDefender programs - as those are the drivers most likely associated with this BSOD.

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

On my computer, for about a little bit over a week now, I've been getting the blue screen that automatically restarts the computer. The blue screen text goes by so fast I can't even read it. I found out online that it was the SmitFraud, so I checked out the guide and downloaded the SmitFraudFix.exe. When I ran it in safe mode, it started working, but then it disappeared and all of my icons and everything on safe mode disappeared. The safe mode screen became a black screen with the words safe mode in the four corners, and I think there was the computer type or something on the top center of the screen. I couldn't run the fix properly in safe mode because after I tried running the fix, safe mode is not useable anymore.
What I tried to do was let my malwarebytes and my anti virus try to detect it, but they couldn't find it. I was thinking of system restoring my computer back 2 weeks, but I also couldn't find the restore points( as there weren't any). What can I do to get rid of the problem? It's really annoying.

Hi there

Before we start I need you to provide me some pieces of information:

1. Which is the version of your Operation System?

2. Do you have the installation CD of the Operating System?

3. Is Normal Mode completely inaccessible?

4. Do you have a clean computer on which you can download tools in order to be able to transfer them to the infected computer?

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer.
if this screen appears again, follow these steps:
check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. if this is a new installation,ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.
If problems continue, disable or uninstall any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.

A:Blue screen of death problem when using antivirus programs

Well..... first thing you need to know about registry programs is that they are risky to use as you have experienced, i use glarysoft registry repair for my xp machine and it works perfectly. Registry Mechanic has been known to mess up vista based systems but really what doesnt mess up vista lol. Anyways you always have the option of reformatting your computer, that in my opinion is the easiest and that should solve the problem you were having 5 months aog. System Restore can also help just find a restore point before you were having all these problems. Lastly you can use the restore feature in registry mechanic to undo all the registry changes, i doubt this will work but it never hurts to try.

I can run a debugging utility on the dump files if you do this:

1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
2 > navigate to c:\windows\minidump and copy the last few minidump files to that folder. *this assumes 'c' is your boot drive, if it is not, subsitute accordingly
3 > close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.
4 > use the "manage attachments" in the "advanced" reply window to upload that zip file here as an attachment.
If you do not see any minidumps, be sure you are not using any cache cleaner such as CCleaner. Also run sysdm.cpl and select Advanced > Startup and Recovery. Make sure "small memory dump" is the one chosen under "write debugging information" and the location should be %systemroot%\minidump

But I was able to replicate the problem twice by running my AVG antiviral program; yet in the last scan, I encountered no problems!

A:Blue Screen of Death (memory dump problem)

Have you tried rolling back the driver update to see if that fixes the problem? Or try system restore to go back before the system started crashing. If that does not work i would reccomend possibly running a memory check with memtest86. That can be obtained here: click free download and download the iso image. You would burn the iso in your cd burning program for burning image files to any ordinary cdr. You should refer to your users guide for burning the image as the methoods of doing this are different in different programs. Try these suggestions and tell us how things are running.

Heya,

Got a problem upon booting, my computer loads the Dell loading screen,by which pressing F2 allows you access to bios settings etc. Anyway, after this screen, I am presented with the black screen which tells me there was a problem loading windows, and gives me th option to run safe mode, last known good config or start windows normally.

No matter what option I pick, it always results in the blue screen of death. The text string under the top paragraph is UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME.

How can I solve this? If it is any help I will paste teh stop code.

The only software change I have made recently, is installing the game WarRock. Hardware wise, I have not made any changes, although I have a Samsung Firmware updater program, which updates the firmware on my DVD-RW, which opens upon startup, and cannot be closed unless through the task manager. I don't know if that has anything to do with it, in the taskbar, the firmware updater says its updating, it has been doing this for weeks and I just left it!

Hi -

The dump confirms bugcheck 0x8e w/ 0xc0000005 NTSTATUS exception code - a memory access violation.

I see #1 problem = you are not updated with Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1). Troubleshooting non-SP1 BSODs is futile.

Any particular reason SP1 non installed??

Let's see if we can determine why SP1 not installed yet. Please follow THESE instructions. Attach the resulting zip (or RAR) files to your next post.

I also took note of some old 3rd party drivers - one dated 2003.

Okay to the best i can i will try to explain what has happened, all i know is that my brother downloaded a Gamescreen capture thing to take pics and video of w/e game your playing, he got it from Filehippo.com to my knowledge has always been a pretty upscale, legit, clean website.

However the BSOD has no adresss line which i though was odd. i have tried starting it in Debug mode, last known good configuration (all the modes that arent safe mode) and it freezes at the same place everytime and give the same message.

I frequently get the BSOD error when I try to enter sleep mode. I followed the BSOD posting instructions thread. I believe all the relevant information is attached, and my system specs were set using SystemInfo.exe. Thanks for your time.

A:Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Problem Sleep Mode

No DMP's included.
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

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.
