BSOD After Laptop Being Down for 6 Months

Q: BSOD After Laptop Being Down for 6 Months

My Dell Inpiron 6000 has been inactive for about 6 months. A friend's pup chewed through the power supply cord, and since I was living with someone who had a PC, I put off getting a new power cord. Everything was fine the last time I used the laptop.

Finally got the new PSC. Plugged it in this afternoon and immediately got a BSOD when XP was trying to load.

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your 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:

Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmentation or backup utilities. Check your hard drive configuration, and check for any updated drivers. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Technical information:

*** STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x823D9590, 0xC000102, 0x00000000)






HELP! :( Please.... Any ideas???

I need to try everything I can before taking it to the IT guy.... There are some... ummm... pics that I wouldn't want him to see if/when he gets it up & running.

I appreciate all the help in advance!! :)

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 guys. I bought an Acer laptop from Argos only 2 months ago and all has been well with it up till the last week or so.

The laptop began to get slower and then eventually begam to freeze at windows loading screen.

I get a blue screen with the STOP code: 0x0000007B

I have re-installed the ACER backup version of windows several times and all is well for the first few restarts then gradually begins to get slower again until eventually it wont boot. When it does manage to load windows the HDD light is constantly on and the Laptop is so laggy. I cant seem to do anything for about 15 minutes. I have CTRL-ALT-Deleted and there are only a few processes running and the CPU is only 15% in use.

I have tried my dads version of Windows 7 incase the Acer version was corrupt and again the same thing happens. I have also tried XP and again same thing happens.

I have searched and searched but there doesnt seem to be an answer to the problem. I have tried changing the BIOS settings (ie. changing sata to IDE) but still to no avail. A friend gave me another hard drive so I could test that and it gave the blue screen straight away. However this time when I changed to IDE in BIOS it loaded windows from his Hard disk.

I decided to re-install yet again but this time its taking for ever so it seems that it is gradually getting worse.

Here is the Laptop AS5820T-354G32Mns | Product Model

Any ideas? I was thinking can I try and re-install Bios via the ACER support downloads?

Hello b_kennedy and Welcome to TSF,

I'm moving this thread to the BSOD/Crash analysis part of the forum instead. Please read through the posting instructions found here if you want us to analyze the BSOD's and let you know the cause of it.

After that we can determine if it's a software fault, which we can help you with. Or if it's a hardware fault, in that cause you should have a valid warranty on it as it's only two months old.

It's up to you whether you want to go through the troubleshooting or hand it in.

Hello,
Here is the problem I was having before for reference:

http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...v4-laptop.html

I don't know if this problem and the previous are related, so started a new thread. After re-installing the OS everything worked fine until a few weeks ago. So flawless for about 2 months. Very intermittent BSOD has become more frequent, just as before. Attached is my zip file for examination. Let me know if any further information is required. Thanks for your help!

A:BSOD starts 2 months after clean re-install of Windows 7 on HP Laptop

Hello there!

Since the reinstall of Windows if it still BSOD'ed then it could be Hardware. Run Hardware Diagnostic (RAM and hard Drive) Hardware Diagnostic | Captain Debugger

Check for BIOS update. It's pretty out-dated.

Hello,
first thing: this is not my pc, so I have experienced just 1 of this bsod (chronologically the last one: this pc had 2 cd/dvd reader, 1 working and 1 not working, to do some tests, I disconnected the working one, at first start the broken one has worked but it gave me that BSOD).

Another info: after the 30/11 an external graphic card was installed (don't know which driver/version).

All the older BSOD (before the 21/01/2015) was not caused by me. I ask you, gently, to have a look at this dumps and help me to find the problem/s. Thank you

A:BSOD differents bsod ntoskrnl.exe in many months

Hello,
some days ago a friend took me his pc because he had got many BSOD (I posted yesterday about that with no luck), many of this BSOD are happened after I have installed in that pc an ATI HD 3650 PCI.

First test group on this machine (Acer T650-99TZ):
prime95: rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4 (after 2 minutes)
memtest86: many errors whit 2 stick of ram, 0 errors when testing the sticks singularly
Furmark: test passed with no errors (30 minutes)
hdtune: no errors

Second test group on second identical machine (Acer T650-99TZ + hdd, ram and gpu from the first machine)
prime95: rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4 (after 2 minutes)
memtest86: many errors whit 2 stick of ram, 0 error when testing the sticks singularly

Third test group on second and first machine (same hw except for the gpu: here I took out the HD 3650 and used the integrated gpu)
prime95: no errors (in 8 hours)
memtest86: no errors (100% passed)


Ram: 2x1gb 1Rx8 PC2-5300U 555-12 hymp112u64cp8-y5
CPU: Pentium 4 524
Obviously no overclock was made on this pc.
Obviously gpu drivers are up-to-date.

Now i'm trying to donwngrade the drivers of the GPU but I think this won't work, since the problem appear to be an incompatibility between the HD 3650 and the other hw.

Can anyone help me to solve this problem? Thanks

I update and save quite a few files each day, and I can see in File History that there are many saved versions for these files.
This would fill up my backup drive fairly quickly, and therefore, I need to reduce 'Keep saved versions' from the default of 'forever' to about 3 months.  But does this mean that all files older than 3 months will be deleted my File History backup?
 What happens to all my files that have only ever been saved once, but are older than 3 months?  Are these retained in File History or deleted?
The forums on File History do no make this very clear.

I am running Windows XP 2002 SP3 on my laptop along with McAfee Security Center which is provided by AT&T. The laptop has historically ran very smoothly, but I noticed the performance starting to degrade about 2-3 months ago. It is now to the point where I am suspecting some sort of infection or malware because the performance is so bad. Sometimes, the CPU performance locks at 100% for long periods which explains the slow performance. But other times, there is no explanation ... the CPU performance appears normal (fluctuates between 0-25%) yet the laptop remains sluggish.

I have not made any system changes or recently added any new applications other than coupon printing apps that I have been told are safe.

Can you please help me determine what may be causing this problem? I'll be happy to provide any additional information or run any tests deemed necessary.

Thanks in advance for your help,
-Vanessa

Hey, so my computer has been BSODing for about 2 months now and I can't figure out why. The Blue Screen View always displays ntkrnlpa.exe as one of the crash addresses but even after research, I can't figure out what to do or exactly what is causing it, as I know that's a Windows kernel. I don't really know what changed back when it started or what drivers were installed at that time. I originally thought it was an external harddrive I got around that time but I think I bought that after the problems started and I've now noticed that the computer crashes even when the HD's not plugged in. It crashes even when I leave my computer on over night. Here's the Minidump log from the past 2 months:

First the errors were due to 'a clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor' but now they are going into a more serious 'uncorrectable hardware error'.

For around the past three months I have been getting the bsod. I have changed hds and reformatted twice to load the os but still get this bsod. Whats strange is that the puter may work fine for days and then crash or then start to crash over and over (reformat). I am getting tired of reinstalling the os so is ther anyone here who can read these minidumps and maybe tell me what to look at first, thanks.

A:BSOD 3 months

For some reason I cant read the minidump files. What errors are you
getting when it bluescreens? When you format are you using the
xp format utility?, if so bad idea, xp does a very poor job at that. If
you had os problems before the format, you will more than likely
have the same problems after the format.

A:First BSOD since 2 months

We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:





There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard! I STRONGLY suggest not using controller drivers older than mid-2012 with SSD's.
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.
- Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.

Hi,

I'm fighting a BSOD for about 50 days now, It's happening randomly in different situations for a minimum of two times daily.

I'm suspecting that my memory is the problem (2x2GB Chaintech APOGEE) as it appears in a weird way in Gigabyte easytune (some times appear as one memory module, other times with different frequency and properties for each module).

I ran Memtest86 with one module at a time and there were no errors.

I also ran the Windows 7 Memory test on both modules with no errors.

CPU: Intel i7-930

Mainboard: Gigabyte X58A-UD3R

Display: Geforce GTS 250 1GB

HDD: Seagate 1TB SATA

Windows Version: Windows 7 Ultimate 64

Windows Type: Full Retail

Hardware Age: 2 Months

Windows Age: Around 50 Days (Repaired Two Days ago)

Running Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 11.0.0.232

I appreciate any help, This BSOD causes a serious pain & I lost work many times because of it.

Thanks in advance.

A:BSOD for 2 Months

One error is caused by Kaspersky.. will check further.. and others will be here to take a look. I would recommend removing it and replacing with MSE or another antivirus

Hi,
Since 5 months, I got a BSOD when I'm doing some basics things: Looking at Facebook, playing games (even flash games) I've decided after that to make a DualBoot to Windows 8, previously I had Windows 7, There was no BSOD for 3 days, and it began...

What did I make:
Memtest86+ = No errors, runned 4 passes
Tried to use one stick of ram = Worked for almost 1 day.
Swap the sticks of ram in the slots = Worked for 1 month (wtf happened there)
Ran driver verifier = got a blue screen with rdyboost.sys as the error.
Install all the drivers and make updates (Bios, chipset)
I've BSOD while writing this, the error flagged was rdyboost.sys, I think it's the error, but don't know how to delete or deactivate this thing..
Thanks in advice.

Forgot to add : I have this PC since 2 years.

I don't have time to look through all of those mini-dumps but the latest ones I have looked at don't seem to be pointing to anything in particular. This might indicate a hardware problem or a buggy/out-of-date driver.

You have some old drivers you should consider updating to Windows 8 64bit versions or un-installing/removing if un-needed:

AtiPcie.sys - ATI PCIE Driver for ATI PCIE chipset or ATI PCI Express (3GIO) Filter Found in my ATI video drivers (I have an Intel chipset) (2009): Driver Reference Table
AsIO.sys - Asus PCProbe Utility: Driver Reference Table (please un-install this and anything related to ASUS Utilities Suite, known BSOD creator)
ASACPI.sys - Asus ATK0110 ACPI Utility. Also a part of many Asus utilities: Driver Reference Table (please un-install this, known BSOD creator)
LGBusEnum.sys - Logitech Keyboard: Driver Reference Table
netr73.sys - D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G122 Wireless USB Adapter(rev.C) ** DISCONTINUED **: Driver Reference Table

Please update your AMD chipset drivers:

AMD Chipset Drivers

Remove the drivers related to BSODs above using control panel/un-install.

Update your Logitech Keyboard driver: Keyboards

Not sure about the D-Link Airplus Wireless USB Adapter, there doesn't seem to be a Windows 8 64bit driver for it. It's quite an old piece of gear so I recommend not using it in Windows 8. I recommend un-installing the driver via control panel if possible or disabling it by going into: c:\windows\system32\drivers and renaming the driver to ... Read more

Good afternoon

As the title says, I have been getting BSOD for nearly 2 months and I have tried almost everything to fix it as follows:

- I have reinstalled windows 7 and formatted my harddrive
- Sent the pc to an IT expert for 3 days where he performed all sorts of diagnostics and found nothing to be wrong with it
- Sent it to 2 other IT experts and specifically explained to them that they need to use the pc and make sure to turn it off and on about 3 times before the bsod happens again (which they did do) yet the bsod never happens at any one else's house/workplace (perhaps I have a problem with my actual power supply socket at my room??)
- I have made sure all drivers are up to date
- I have run the command prompt "chkdsk" and it found no problems
- I have turned on the pc in safe mode (making sure to do this on the 2nd or 3rd time using it so as to expect a bsod) and the bsod still happens
- I have turned on the pc with only the essentials (monitor, mouse and keyboard) and it still crashes
- The person I sent it to said that there are no problems with the harddrive, motherboard or RAM and CPU (although I am not sure what to believe anymore)
- I have run a registry cleaner using CCleaner and it still crashed

Please help me, I am not sure what else I can try without throwing the pc in the bin. I'v attached the zipped file with all the info from the sf diagnostic tool hopefully you can help me

Hello Tony & welcome,
If you are getting BSOD's & want them analyzed please follow the directions below -

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.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
** Until a .dmp file is generated, the Minidump folder may not exist.**

*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 drop down box (the 256kb varies).
*Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
*OK.
Reboot if changes have been made.

I'm not sure what you mean by this?
What is the make and model of your computer? You may have a Recovery Partition on your computer. If you start up your computer, you may have a quick message over the logo that says Press (key) to Enter Recovery, sometimes this is F11. If so, this will set your computer back to Factory Defaults. This will remove all personal data, so backup first.
If you do not have a recovery partition, then read up on the link in my signature PC Running Slow? And try those things.

Hello, I'm new to the forum, but I have been following it for some time. I seriously hope someone will be able to help me.
Here is my problem: I bought a new ASUS laptop 3 months ago, and it was all okay until it started to shut down on its own ( about a month ago). I tried resetting Windows, updating etc then I replaced my hdd because a software diagnostics tool reported that there were bad sectors. I could also hear strange noises. I read that manhandling the laptop while it is running could damage the delicate workings of the hdd, and I had done that sometimes. Everything was fine for almost a week, then the computer started shutting down on its own again. It happened while I was working , keeping multiple programs open (twice, hours after turning it on) and while I was watching a video (10-15 min later). However, today was not the first time I watched a video, so the issue is new. It seems like it is gradually worsening. After it shut down, I tried to power it back on, but it wouldn't boot. The LEDs didn't even turn on, unless it was plugged in. When i unplugged the charger it shut down again immediately. After 3 minutes I removed the external power supply, and it kept running.

I have already updated the BIOS firmware to the last version, but it obviously didn't work.
ASUS PC Diagnostics tells me that the CMOS pattern test failed, I looked up possible solutions, but I wanted to ask before doing anything stupid.

My laptop suddenly stopped charging when plugged in, and only charges when it is switched off. Also the space bar stopped functioning. I bought it 9 months back and it's still under the warranty period., but they said they will be able to fix the space bar problem only and not the charging problem and for that I would have to pay up. And the charging port that they would change would be under warranty only for 2 months, which means as per HP service center it could stop working again!!!!. I'm a doctor and I live alone. I've hardly used my laptop and no one else uses my laptop. I read somewhere that this was a problem faced by many people using HP laptops. This could be a manufacturing defect. I don't think I should be charged for hardly using my HP laptop that has an inherent defect. You are looting your customers. Kindly revert back.

Hi all, hoping somebody can offer some advice.

About 9 months ago I purchased a new laptop, an Acer V5-571 (i3 1.4Ghz, 6GB RAM, 750GB HDD and Windows 8) It's nothing special and was never intended to be. I only use it for web browsing, e-mail, IM, Word and maybe watching some videos on YouTube.

In fact in the 9 months I've had it, I've not attempted to play one even slightly intensive game on it, as I think I killed my previous laptop in its early days by attempting to do this.

Anyway the problem is it has become very noisy, fan wise. When I first had the laptop (and for the first 6-7 months) it was silent for the majority of the time, even when browsing the web.

Now the fan can always be heard when I have a browser open or whatever. The only way it silences is if I close every application and just leave it at the Windows desktop for a while (or if I turn it off!)

I know dust build up can occur but I've had a look through the vent and can't notice anything untoward. Although I appreciate it may be hard to see from the outside, I don't really want to be opening the case yet.

I was wondering if this was normal for a laptop in this age range? My previous laptop, another Acer, didn't start getting noisy constantly until the end of its days (and that was in it's 4th-5th year)

It's just frustrating that the fan can always be heard even when doing very little in Windows. I also can't see any rogue processes taking up resources.

I've changed my laptop habits a lot since thi... Read more

A:Acer V5-571 laptop - 9 months old yet becoming very noisy

Only thing I can think of at the moment is to use a program similar to CPUZ and check the temperatures at various time.check temp when first started as that should be lowest and listen to noise then use something a bit cpu intensive like a photo edit and again check temp and noise. if temp going up with little cpu action and noisy chances are it it dust. when I first cleaned mine I used a can of air duster thru the vent holes to stir dust up a bit and a vac to suck it out. Hold with vent holes downwards.

Only other way is to get a set of headphones and play your favourite track at max volume

Recommendations:The most recent crash blames Norton, but earlier crashes all point to sptd.sys as the cause, which is very common, especially given that yours is three years old.

Please remove any CD/DVD virtualization software, such as Daemon Tools/Alcohol 120%, as they use a driver called sptd.sys that is known to cause BSODs. Use add/remove programs to remove the software.

Had been having BSOD problem for 6months+ already. Don't really cared much but it seems like it's getting worse now. Hope anyone here is willing to help me with it..

I always gets 3 type of BSOD problem which are PAGE_FAULT_IN_NOW_PAGED_AREA, BAD_POOL_CALLER & SRQL_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

Before I started this thread I've googled and found someone saying changing a new RAM would do the trick but after I've changed, BSOD is still popping out.

Anyway, below I've attached my PC's specification and my minidump folder.

Hope this problem can be resolved ASAP as my college's new semester is starting soon and i need my PC badly

Thanks in advance!

System spec:
OS Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU E6320 @ 1.86GHz
Memory (RAM) 4.00 GB
NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT

Is there anyone around that can help please? I'm desperate. O.o

Hey guys,

I have had off and on BSOD on a customer built computer (not by me) over the last few months and I am at the point where I can't figure it out, so I have come here looking for advice.

I have attached the files, any help would be nice.

A:Multiple BSOD over last few months

Install the NVIDIA DRIVERS 314.22WHQL.
Uninstall All nvidia items in Control Panel > Programs and features3D Vision Control Driver
3D Vision Driver
Graphics Driver
HD Audio Driver
PhysX
nvidia Update
(Are you using nvidia chipset drivers? If so, dont uninstall anything other than those are listed).
Now follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling
Download 314.22 WHQL. While installing, Select Custom (Advanced) install. In the next page, follow this settings:
Also install Asmedia USB 3.0 Driver V1.14.3.0 from ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download SABERTOOTH Z77

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

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Let us know the results.

Hi,

I bought a new computer a few months ago, it never worked properly and even after i sent it back to the shop multiple times it has never been properly fixed. The BSOD happen at random times, sometimes it will go two weeks without issues and other times it will crash 2 or 3 times in one night. I've looked through a few forums to try and find a solution but i've had no luck, i've given up trying to solve it myself as i have no idea what could be wrong with it at this point.

Is all the information you need attached in the zip?

Thanks in advanced.
