Laptop crashes, random pattern on screen / blue screen

Q: Laptop crashes, random pattern on screen / blue screen

Hi, i'm new to the forum and i need help with my toshiba a205-s4577.

it was working fine for the past year and months that i have used it and then one day it suddenly crashed while i was watching a movie. it displayed random patterns on screen. kinda like part of the image from the video is on the screen then a black strip and random colors. I restarted the unit to safe mode and left it on and browsed the net and downloaded some big files for how many hours and nothing happened.. there are also times when windows is still loading with the windows logo on screen, it crashes. there are also times when the login screen is displayed and it crashes. it just crashes randomly! so i tried to reformat it. i deleted the partitions and created a new one, formatted it then fresh installed windows 7 ( my previous OS is windows 7 by the way) and started installing the basic drivers and after a few hours, it crashed again... thinking that the driver installed might not be compatible, i tried another fresh install of windows (same execution, delete partition, create, install OS) and this time, without installing the drivers, it crashed again after a few hours... sometimes it crashes immediately after turning it on from cold start!

is there someone who can give me an advice on this? is this somehow caused by dust accumulating inside the laptop? or is it already busted?

Preferred Solution: Laptop crashes, random pattern on screen / blue screen

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.)

Hi wizki and welcome

These crashes were caused by several different things that were all related to memory.

I would download a third party application called memtestx86. Burn it to cd, and run it for at least 6 passes.
Let us know if you need assistance

Running windows 7 fully updated. The most stable graphics drivers available. Have zone alarm, avast antivirus, & Spybot S & D. Run Firefox.

For the last week or so I have been getting seemingly random blue screen crashes that don't provide any details as to what is causing the problem.

I have run full Spybot S & D scans, AV scans, ran a full length checkdisk for both the small SSD and the large TB drive.

I have reinstalled the graphics drivers to the most stable advised by ATI.

Is there anything else I can try short of reinstalling the OS?

I am nervous about attempting to reinstall the OS because the main HD is a solid state drive and I know those can sometimes be problematic when attempting to install an OS due to recognition problems.

I don't think this is an overheating issue because it happens not only when I am playing a game but also when there is nothing running but netflix or just music.

A:Random Blue Screen and Crashes

I've been getting the dreaded " PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" crash too but just on my first ColdBoot once a day. After that one time, it's never done it until I have the system off for several hours. A few guys suggested to use the "SFC /verifynow" or "SFC /scannow" command in the advanced command prompt window under accessories. Also it was suggested to try MEMTEST 3.4 to check for errors.

I was running Vista until several weeks ago when my HD crashed. We salvaged what data we could and then installed Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit on a second HD that's never had an OS installed on it. It was previously used for backup and storage. Everything was fine for 10 to 12 days then got a bluescreen and restart. It's happened a few times since but we also get random system crashes and freezing without the blue screen but requiring a restart. It doesn't seem to happen while doing any one particular thing but it actually crashed while running the BSOD dump & system file collection app. Sometimes it has problems rebooting and wants to run repair but it usually boots up eventually and it'll run fine for a while. I've not been able to pin it down to any specific software so I'm leaning towards a hardware issue but I don't know enough to decipher everything. I'm much closer to the intermediate level than expert.

The system is about 3 yrs. old. I've attached the zip file including my perfmon, NT6 BSOD file, and 4 minidumps that were created. I'm also using Avast antivirus and Adaware. I've read a couple of places that W7 and Avast don't get along too well but I really have no idea if this is causing the problem. Any assistance provided would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Guys,
My problem is this, my PC's performance has dropped significantly, and suffers from random reseting and randon blue screen crashes, that appear to be becoming more frequent, somtimes not allowing me to actually log on.

The blue screen has suggested that the problem file may be "Win32k", it has also read "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" something along the lines of;"NON_PAGE_AREA" (I didn't catch the rest of it) and suggested disabling BIOS memory if the problem continues.

Thats all the info I have, there is nothing I have instaled recently, nor any suspect sites I have visited, so I'm stumped. Have tried AVG, Ad-aware, C-Cleaner, windows defender and Spybot. I'll post my HiJack this log, And thank you for any help and advice!!!

Welcome

Your dumps do not show a probable cause.

In such cases we enable driver verifier to rule of buggy drivers.

Driver Verifier





Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data 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/Windows 7 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 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
- Select Select driver names from a list and click Next
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click Next
- Select Finish on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of... Read more

Hey All,

I am experiencing some disturbing shut downs on my new custom pc and would really appreciate some guidance.

Just to be clear, these crashes do not provide a BSOD and therefore no error code for me to research and correct.

In the last two days, this has happened 4-5 times, and most often while watching streaming video online or DVD video (but also while browsing the web). Without warning, everything will lock up (sometimes this is accompanied by a terrible sound emitted from the speakers - presumably looping audio from the video i was watching). I then have no choice but to power down the pc manually and reboot. It strikes me as a hardware issue but I hope this is not the case.

I have attacked SF Diag logs. I will do my best to answer any questions.

Thank you in advance.

Hi guys,
I hope you can help, I've been having some random crashing and BSOD's

I thought at first it was my webcam drivers 9as a crash happened whilst using Skype) so I installed the latest version from the manufacturers site.But I'm still having issues.

I'm not playing games or even pushing the processors with lots of programs etc. These happen sometimes when just using Facebook and not much else.
Sometimes everything freezes and other times I get a full on crash and reboot.
Thanks in advance

Hello,

my pc is triggering BSOD's randomly as it seems.

A:[SOLVED] Blue screen BSOD - random crashes

Hi Jan, welcome to TSF!

Almost everything is pointing to a power /switching/saving problem with the Wireless USB device drivers. The culprit looks like the Dell Wireless 5540 HSPA Mini-Card Network Adapter, not the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000 that was connected during the collection of data.

There appears to be a remnant of a Sunbelt Vipre being loaded, gfibto.sys GFI Boot Time Operations Driver. Uninstallers for most security software can be found here if you have had this installed previously: Antivirus Uninstallers Note that remnants from old security software often cause problems like this.

The Wondershare PC Care software looks like it uses snakeoil/scareware tactics to sell, I would not use it or recommend it's use to others.

I advise that you update/reinstall with all the latest drivers available from the Dell support site for your laptop. Begin with the chipset drivers then the graphics drivers (2x sets) before the networking (3x sets) drivers. Then update any others still remaining. Drivers & Downloads | Dell US

You may need to search your local Dell support site for the HSPA driver, I'm having difficulties tracking it down. The latest I can see that might work is the A13 driver here: Download Dell Precision M4500 Notebook 5540 HSPA Mini Card Driver A13 Driver for Windows XP / Windows Vista / Windows XP X64 / Windows Vista64 / Windows 7 / Windows 7 x64 either of the below fixes mentioned there could the the fix we are looking for:

Heya! My first post on yet another forum, and though I really, really wish I didn't have to post here (nothing against you guys, as I'm sure you understand ), I might as well try and make it count, right?

So, this is my issue. For a few days now, my laptop has been having some pretty major issues. It started when I tried to start it up one day... and it failed to do so. My CPU fan started running at its highest speed (much higher than usual when my laptop starts up), the status lights on my computer blinked once... and then nothing happened. The screen remained blank (not even on) and my CPU fan just kept going. I let it run for a few, thinking that maybe it was just having a slow start for some reason, but to no avail. So I tried a few more times, and then on a whim decided to try removing my battery and just letting my power cord run juice to the computer, and it started. I put the battery back in, logged on... and discovered that, for some reason, my keyboard wasn't registering anything. Nor was my touch pad (I had been using an external laser mouse, which worked just fine). I restarted without issue, and the keyboard worked just fine once more. It ran fine for about 2 hours or so after that... and then it Blue Screened on me. I decided to just let it be for the night, and went to bed. The next day, I tried to start it up again... and the same start up problems greeted me. This time, I managed to get it to start by just letting it run on battery power inst... Read more

Hello I've been having these blue screen issues since I got the computer and the thing is, it's random but also not random. My computer may go weeks without crashing then suddenly (most likely triggered by running a certain program or game) I crash and then it happens like 10 times in 1 hours or until I get fed up. Another thing, is, I used to play a couple games here and there and this one game I played (not very resource intensive btw, usually fairly outdated older games) would never have any issues, then upon triggering the wave of crashes somehow, my computer would start crashing periodically while playing this game. But other times I could play the game for a couple hours even without a single problem.
 
This made the issue really hard to diagnose but I do have this info which may or may not help...
 
- The crash may be related to memory as a lot of the error codes are like X00000000 (have a lot of 0s in them) and a buddy of mine said that usually means memory error. However I have installed new memory chips and still crashes
- One of the codes usually looks something like XFFFF80A08 or something like that though...
- There are a couple ways I can guarantee a crash which includes: trying to sync music to my phone, trying to burn a cd, trying to install certain programs (bigger programs) 
- The first crash I ever had followed the genuine windows warning and messages, I've used various remedies for it which usually work for a little while, of course until my... Read more

My computer has been restarting itself randomly for awhile now, at least the last month, possibly longer. I run my anti virus programs every time and nothing ever pops up, so I have been assuming that it's just been due to over heating or being a few years old. But just now it crashed and before it restarted I got a blue screen telling me that Windows had encountered a problem and needed to shut down.
That's a problem, and the last time something like that happened to me there was a pretty nasty trojan involved and I had to come here for help. I let it reboot, started running my anti virus programs and I had literally just gotten here to start a help thread when it crashed again with the same blue screen message.
That time I told it to restart in safemode, and it was able to run the anti virus programs sucessfully. Spybot and Malwarebytes are both still telling me there is nothing, and there have been no pop ups from AVG.
Recent changes to my computer is mostly just that yesterday my wireless router crapped out, and I had to wire myself right to the modem. (At least that's what tech support told me I was doing.) The most recent programs I have downloaded are Spotify,  a Silverlight update, and Comodo Internet Security.

I have Windows Vista Ultimate. The first time it crashed today I was actively using both Spotify and Firefox, and the second time it was just Firefox.

Hi, all,

I just built a PC from the ground up with all brand new parts. The only thing I salvaged was the hard drive from my old PC. Now I've been getting very rare blue screen crashes when the PC is just idle at the desktop. But I will frequently get blue screen crashes if I start playing a game. The last few crashes have mentioned:

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA
-This crash mentioned the file nv4_disp.dll

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

PFN_LIST_CORRUPT

Several of the crashes before the first one I listed also mentioned nv4_disp.dll. Obviously this seems to be referring to the Nvidia video card I have installed (GeForce GTS 250). So is the video card bad or is there something else I can do to fix this? Sometimes I can play a game perfectly for an hour before a blue screen, othertimes it'll happen as the game is loading.

Any help would be appreciated. I've attached my DirectX diagnostic file if that helps.

I started having issues about 5 days ago, I had a couple of games crash but it was hours/days apart. On Sunday watching Netflix, Firefox crashed repeatedly. Over the course of two hours I had about 4 or 5, and a bluescreen.
Then games started crashing more regularly and firefox kept up its crashes. It also had regular page crashes. VLC/WMP also crashed on opening video files. Switching output, to OpenGL from Auto fixed this.

I made sure GPU drivers were up to date, even wiped them and clean installed. I did a memtest, no issues. I tried using Chrome and it has the same problems.

I just formatted and reinstalled and am having the same issues again, but they seem reduced.

I'm having an odd issue when I try to run and 3D game on my PC, after about 5-10 minutes the image freezes up for a few seconds (Audio still works), then the screen goes to black (About a second worth of the last bit of audio played loops), then the computer simply restarts. There is no blue screen, and when windows starts back up, it does not give me the usual; "There was a problem and windows had to shut down" dialogue. However, upon reboot, I am asked whether to start Windows in safe mode or normally. The temperatures of the hardware are all at normal, so it doesn't appear to be overheating. I feel that the power supply may be suspect, but from what I've read, 750w-800w is enough for my configuration. I tried with a 1Kw PC Power and Cooling PSU I had lying around, and the same issue occurs. This problem does not present itself when I have run 3D games in Ubuntu on this system, so I would assume it is some issue with Windows 7. My chipset and video drivers are up to date.

Hi there,

I have tried to fix this problem myself. Problem started several days ago and I cannot remember installing any new programs that would have caused this (possibly an automatic windows update?).

I've tried scanning the disk for errors, cleaning registry, virus/spyware scanning and updating a few major drivers with no luck.

I've used blue screen view and the driver wdf01000.sys keeps on popping up but after a bit of reading I don't think that is the root of the problem.

I have a sneaking suspision that it may be a security program called Folder Lock, however I have had this program installed for several months with out problems.

I have attached the .dmp file from my last crash (they all seem fairly similar). Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi guys,
I recently (within the last 4 months) purchased a gaming laptop. Seeing as the MSI brand was getting a lot of good reviews, I searched and found one of there laptops to fit my needs perfectly. The MSI Ghost Pro - 002 looked like a fast and lightweight laptop.
The laptop is great when it works and it works most of the time, however there are these occasional freeze. Pointer/Mouse/trackpad is locked. Sound becomes static/buzzing. No BSODs (until today). No Ctrl+Alt+Delete. Nothing works besides a hard reset.
I should say that these freezes are not a new thing to this laptop that I got. It actually happened within the first couple days of use and has now become more frequent. It use to be maybe once every couple of weeks, and then once a week. But now it has happened on almost a daily basis; however it is not consistent. Luckily, I have yet to encounter it happening more than once a day.

I have already tried calling MSI and seeing what they can do. However, the issue I am running into is that without any definitive causes for the crash, I am not sure if the problem will occur if I send it in for an RMA. They said they cant replace or fix the issue without see the problem and determine what the issue is. That is understandable though, but still frustrating that a new laptop will have this issue.

If anyone can help me solve this problem that would be great.

Installed new drivers from intels homepage (I am however not sure I did it the correct way but I got a message confirming the installation and un-installation). Uninstalled the drivers. Restarting my computer several times. What is weird is that this is happening on random intervals. I do not use any sort of heavy programs or anything like that. During the whole re-installation on windows 10 this thing never happened, not even once. Some times it can take 40 minutes and other times it might take 10 minutes before it happens.

skylakeissues Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!First off, you should NOT be installing drivers from Intel on your new laptop; instead, you should have kept the drivers that were preinstalled. Second, while this PC is still under warranty, you should contact HP Customer Support directly to have them put you in touch with HP Technical Support to see what they can do about diagnosing and repairing your machine remotely.  They will probably have you reinstall the HP drivers, or do that for you.I did this recently and the HP Tech was able to remotely access my PC from the Internet and do the needed repairs.If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/phone-assist.html#section1If you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.htmlNOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!Good Luck

Here's the story. I updated my laptop through Window Update a few month ago. After I updated, my laptop always hangs and shows the blue screen w/ something like 'crash dump' * i wasn't managed to read, it's just too fast ><*
So I uninstalled the updates but this problem still bugging me always.
Before I updating, my laptop worked pretty fine * if my memory serves me correctly *.

Btw, the frequencies of appearing the blue screen is just random. Sometimes it hangs for a few seconds (up to minutes sometimes), well sometimes it just shows me the blue screen after it hangs for a while.

When my laptop hangs, it seems like THIS WORLD IS SLOWER DOWN and freezes. If I was watching a video, the sound will be like 'Y...o...u........a..........r..........e..........a........w..........e...........s.......o........m.........e........' ( while the normal one will be 'you're awesome', of course). Sometimes there's no sound when it hangs, even though I was watching the video when it freezes suddenly. Oh yeah btw, the video will be fast forward itself til the part that it should've been.

Another thing is after blue screen it still manage to restart my laptop and I can shut it down just like nothing happened too -_-

Just installed Hotspot Shield (latest version 2.74, also tried 2.65) and its install was successful but after it's turned on (green icon shows) then I start a blocked website like YouTube, Last.fm or Metrolyrics.com on Firefox, my laptop crashes and shows blue screen, shows something like: XX00000789, 0000089998 kind of messages and BAD_POOL_CALLER message on the top left of the blue screen... And the file name ndis.sys always shows on bottom left of the blue screen.

I realized that the messages on the BAD_POOL_CALLER area are random, sometimes it shows DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and sometimes it shows BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER... Anyone know what's happening here?

My laptop's specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit: Service Pack 1. 2nd Gen. i3, 3Gb Ram...

A:Laptop crashes (shows blue screen) whenever I start a blocked website

Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Random Blue Thin/Dotted Lines on My HP Laptop Screen

I was recently transfering files to my new laptop, and uninstalling programs on my old laptop when I suddenly got thin blue lines randomly on my old screen in dark or black areas (see images). It is not in the same location on the screen depending on what I am viewing.

I hooked an external monitor to my laptop and the image is perfect. Another odd thing is when I screen capture the bluelines and view the image file on another PC, they do not show.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi

Update to the latest drivers for your on-board VGA and see if that solves the problem.

Code:

Hi there eveyone, I hope someone can shed some light on this issue for me.

Basically, I might have once accidentally dropped my laptop quite hard, ever since it has frequently frozen, with the screen displaying a repeating pattern (see picture). The only way to get out of this is to power off and turn on again. The odd thing is that I can use it normally for prolonged periods with no problem and it'll suddenly happen or sometimes it happens during boot-up. It's most possibly some kind of loose connection but I'm not sure what really. One other thing to note is that when the screen goes funny the computer shows no sign of working (HDD light either has no activity or stays on permanently).

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Neil

Summary: whilst watching a video commercial on a trusted corporate website, the screen went black (though still backlit). On restarting, screen came up normal (graphics perfect) until the first Windows XP page (with the green loading bar) when there were green and black vertical strips 5mm wide, the green strips made up of four lines, a little reminiscent of that code pattern in movie Matrix. After the Windows page the green lines turned to blue, and then the screen went black (though still backlit), and the usual user login didn`t appear. Leaving the computer to run, the hard disk was active from time to time, then before long the windows logging-in jingle played as if we had logged in, the screen still black. After that, no response at all.

After problem: Laptop can be started in Safe Mode (from where I write this), there are still faint green lines superimposed. I completed a system restore but this has not fixed the problem.

The last few weeks: A number of weekends ago I attempted to open my mouse for the purpose of silencing the clicks, but on opening the mouse half way and looking inside it made itself apparent that it was not meant to be opened (without breaking the plastic case [mouse is GlanzHS by Sanwa]) On closing and restoring the mouse, I found that initially the left button didn`t seem to work, and then it did, problem solved. But then strangeness began: next time on restarting the computer, nothing responeded to the pointer or the left click on the first ... Read more

Hi Naval, welcome to TSF, I reckon the mouse related issue could be easily diagnosed. Try another one, not USB - there known to be hassle when the system isnt working properly - and we should easily see if the problem is with the pc or the mouse.

with regards the problem with the graphics, i'll leave that to someone with more experience.

I just built my computer about 3 weeks ago, and ever since I put it together, it will randomly crash. Sometimes it crashes in 15 minutes, sometimes in 15 hours. It just freezes for a second, and then crashes and goes to a red screen or black screen or green screen. Also, sometimes, the monitor will go black for a second and then display returns. I don't know if this is relevant, but the speakers I have hooked up randomly make a popping noise every 30 minutes or so. I don't know why. I have reupdated the video drivers a few times. I also have run a memtest, and it came back with no errors (but it took about 18 hours for 1 pass). I have also monitored the temperatures on my computer. GPU never gets hotter than 47C and CPU hasn't gotten hotter than 55C. I have replaced the PSU with a corsair ax860 and the issue stayed, so it isn't the PSU. Also, when it crashes, its not just the screen. The processes on my computer stop (such as my minecraft server), so I know its the actual computer and not just graphics. My friend mentioned it might be my solid state, as that is running the OS.

I either play Left 4 Dead or Prototype and my computer crashes with a blue screen when I make a swift mouse motion to the right. It doesn't happen all the time, some days I can play L4D for hours and it won't crash.

Some say the most common thing is Logitech Mouseware. I do have a Logitech mouse, Mx510 Performance Optical Mouse (Blue). I am running on Vista, I have visited the driver site for Logitech and found out that Vista does not require any driver for my mouse, and I never had on in the first place for this Dell XPS M1530. I just plug and use.

So ingame, it would happen when I make a sharp turn with the character to look in first person view to the other side or behind me, with lots of things happening at the same time, such as attacks or explosions, screams etc.

This is what I got as the only info that I could possibly even remember during the 10 seconds before reboot during the blue screen.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
0x0000000E(something like that)

Then when my computer started up completely, it showed this:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen

A:Vista Blue Screen crashes only in full screen game.

Here's a link to a brief description of the error: Troubleshooting Windows STOP Messages
There's not much info here to go on, but most BSOD's that occur during games are due to video problems, with audio problems coming behind them.

So, for starters:
- download the latest version of the video and audio drivers for your system.
- uninstall the current video and audio drivers through Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program.
- install the downloaded drivers.
- reboot and wait for another BSOD :0)

If this doesn't fix it, you'll have to navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump, zip up the contents of that folder and upload it with your next post.

Hello.

I was having some problems with a virus I could not get rid of for the past few days. I've been working on this for a few days so I don't remember everything I did to end up at this point. This is my current situation:

I did msconfig (I think) and went into the boot.ini, enabled "start in safe mode", after rebooting I have not been able to get into windows again. This is what I have done since then: I have done a windows repair, after that didn't I went into Recovery Console and did a chkdsk /r. Still no good. I disabled restart on failure, and the blue screen says 0x0000007E, fltmgr.sys. When I check the listsvc in Recovery console it says fltmgr.sys is disabled. I tried enable fltmgr.sys but it just says "the registry entry for the fltmgr.sys service cannot be located. Check that the name of the last service is specified correclty."

Help!

Hello Everyone,
Can I get some help in relation to the above from you guys? It seems I do experience certain crashes for which I cannot find any possible explanation. There are few similar threads out there where similar events in the event log occur near the crash, but I haven't been able to resolve my issue after their examining. First of all my PC specs:

Win 7 Prof X64
AMD Phenom II x4 955BE
GA-790FXTA-UD5 F2
Corsair Dominator 4 x 2GB CL7 CMD8GX3M4A1333C7
MSI N460GTX Cyclone 678 D5 OC/Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 Vapor-X 2GB
Cooler Master Silent Pro M700 700W 80+
+3.3V - 28 A
+5V - 25 A
+12V1 - 50 A
-12V - 0,5 A
+5VSB - 2,5 A

None of the components has been overclocked. All the drivers are up to date. The GPU is a stock overclock, and the crashes occur both with Nvidia and ATI. (I have Nvidia now as my HD 5870 has been RMA'd). RAM was checked by Memtest - OK ( although I might do few more continuous runs later on as per suggestions in the different forums).

The crash relates to Kernel Power errors. I have only two dumps from the said crashes (they both relate, I think, to the graphics - see attached zip's).

Attachment 115031

Attachment 115032

The remaining crashes for which I'm going to put the event log excerpts, ended up with hard resets and no crash dump file.

If you have a look at the event log below, you'll see that there are two events before the kernel power crash that have sth to do with Microsoft Filter Manager. Both are exactly the same... Read more
