Q: Whenever I plug in my elgato HD capture device my pc goes to a blue screen

Whenever I plug in my elgato HD capture device my pc goes to a blue screen. So what happens is I plug my elgato into my computer and open up the elgato software (Game capture HD) And it initializes (I think that is how you spell it) the elgato and 5 seconds later it will crash... I tried to re-install the drivers and the Game capture HD Software but it still does the same thing. Here is a link to a video of my screen when it crashes -

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.

When I'm trying to record something in theater mode it looks good and smooth and hd. But when I record it with Elgato it says "deinterlacing" and after that it looks laggy / crappy / not hd. I need to record good Black Ops 2 material with my ps3 / elgato please help me!

I heard that with ps3 you can get the quality better with some other wires, can someone explain how?

If you need anything else like my settings or computer specs please tell me!

I'm using Mac by the way.


Please help!

A:Elgato Game Capture Device PROBLEM with Black Ops 2 [HELPME!]

Sounds like a configuration issue in your recording software/configuration.

There is no reason to deinterlace the video as it's a progressive signal (ie: 1080P) and you want to record it as a progressive signal (1080P).

As far as cables go, that device doesn't appear to offer an input options. Looks like you should be using an HDMI cable. For the most part, HDMI cables either work or they don't.

I bought this Elgato capture card yesterday and I've been trying to get it to work. I've updated my driver, and changed the video quality on both of my monitors, along with the profile (quality) on the software but I keep getting this message:

I don't know what it means by "video output format" but I want to be able to record off of it, so thank you in advance if you know how to help me.

the image link, if you can't see it.

A:Elgato Capture Card: Won't capture anythng

I'm not familiar with it. But based on the image, there is no input signal (upper right box - Game Capture HD "no signal").

So the error is likely trying to tell you to change the output video type of whatever you have connected.

Every time I plug in a usb device on my lenovo t60p laptop whether it's a flash drive, ipod, or mouse it gives me the blue error screen and it reboots. I don't know much about it, but at the bottom it says "dumping physical memory to disk" or something like that, and something about a crash dump. I am running Windows 7 and I don't know what is wrong and how can I fix this?

I just bought an Elgato Game Capture HD so i can play video games and put them on youtube.
the Elgato does not support windows xp, it does support windows 7 sp1.
My questions is what can i do?
I have all of the programs that i need on my computer already. I dont really want to spend another some-hundred dollars on a new computer and the programs and whatever else i might need. Just want to know my options. If i need to spend money on a new computer or something, please assist me with what to look for -cheaply. If i need to get a new computer, i would prefer a laptop, though this is not a necessity.

I have absolutely no Idea how to fix this,
I recorded some GTA V Xbox One, with my Newly purchase Elgato Game Capture HD.
The only settings I changed is the resolution:
I put it at [email protected] (with allowance to use 60fps or whatever that tick box was).
When fast movements are made in game, when I record for example and I jump and fall off a car roof, as shown in this video I made (https://youtu.be/refYFmQPooc). You see very early on in that video what I am talking about.

Just today I got an Elgato Game Capture HD so that I could record myself on YouTube playing XBOX 360, XBOX 1 and Retro Game Consoles. I installed the latest version of the Elgato Game Capture software which required me to install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 and also required some sort of update for Windows 7. I also downloaded the latest version of the Elgato Game Capture HD Driver. I then opened up the Elgato Game Capture software only to find that it didn't recognize my Elgato Capture device. I went into the Device Manager only to find that there was a yellow ! under the Elgato Game Capture device. I double clicked it to see what the issue was and it gave me the Code 52 error. I tried typing something in CMD to solve the problem but that didn't help. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver but that didn't help. I know that the Device itself is not broken because when a console is hooked up to it then it would show on my HDMI monitor and Retro consoles are included.
Here are some pictures that explain my situation-

I read about something that did exactly this very recently and I can't remember what it was called. I just did a search for it and I came up with something that is kind of similar, though it might be way more than you want to spend, it is called a Epiphan DVI frame grabber and lets you output to a capture station so you can capture full quality 30fps from your main display.

If I can think of the thing I saw recently, I'll come back and update this and let you know. The Epiphan thing is like $700 and I don't think the device I saw recently was that expensive. Though I think the Epiphan is exactly what you describe, with the USB Interface.

I originally thought it was a hardware problem because everytime I would plug or unplug my printer in the usb port (which came with the computer) and turn it on I would get the blue screen of death telling me to uninstall whatever new hardware I'd installed. I'll get the actual message for you here in a bit and post that as well. It does not do this if I plug in my digital camera or anything else. My computer is a Dell Inspiron 1150 and my printer is a Dell AIO A920 Printer. This started back in October when I got the AIM virus, I thought I'd gotten rid of it so I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. Also I think there are some hidden processes on my computer because all I have open right now is this one window/Mozilla and my task manager says I'm running 50 processes.

A:Blue Screen When I Plug My Printer Up

I plugged my printer in several times along with other hardware but I failed to make the blue screen of death appear (It's funny how when I don't want it it pops up and when I try to get it it's impossible ) Anyways, today I put a CD in to listen to it when the blue screen popped up but my computer automatically restarted which is the first time that's ever occured.

When it came back on I looked at the error report before sending it. This is all the stuff I found:

BCCode: 9C BCP1: 00000000 BCP2: 8054D370 BCP3: A2000000 BCP4: 84010400
OSVer: 5_1_2600 SP: 2_0 Product: 768_1


I went to the microsoft error report stuff and I didn't understand any of it. I really don't know what the heck is going on with my computer... Please help, I'll keep trying to get the blue screen. But I don't know it may take a couple of days.

Thanks for your patience and your help.

Hello Again.
this is the same problem i put in another thread but after a recommendation i am making a new heading and hopefully this time i will correctly upload the diagnostic file. If it doesn't work this time I'm afraid i don't know what im doing wrong. Out of curiosity how long does that program need to run for? because it gave me the file about an hour ago but the green loading bar is still moving. does it ever stop? I also have another issue on another pc, but have decided it would be best to have 2 separate threads. I hope that is ok i have no intention of blowing up these forums and aggravating anyone.

Hi Sixnails and welcome to SF ,

I looked at your dump files and the cause of your BSOD's point towards

usbfilter AMD USB Filter Driver Kernel 10/7/2009 3:44:08 AM

The usbfilter.sys is the AMD USB filter driver, a component of the AMD chipset drivers.

You can try updating the usbfilter.sys. Latest version of the AMD South Bridge driver available from AMD. Installing the full Catalyst drivers should also give the option to install the AMD USB filter driver.

The AMD USB filter driver, an optional driver, is intended to improve USB performance but sometimes causes issues.

I would also suggest to update the usbport.sys and usbehci.sys to the SP1 version.

You can use this tool to update:


Create a System Restore point first and reboot at least twice after applying.

Hope this helps

I recently purchase a DIY desktop computer but it does not come with a firewire port. I installed one on the pci slot and it was detected by the computer.
Now when I pluged in a 6 to 4 pin firewire cable to my DV cam, I could not do a capture in either the Movie Maker or Premier Elements. It says 'no capture device detected'.
I checked on the hardware under device manager, and it shows that the firewire card is working properly.
I also tried using the USB port on the DV cam to capture, but it was not detected. I heard that it requires a seperate driver from JVC manufacturer. My Cam model is GR-D270.
I would appeciate alot for any answer to my problems.

A:blue screen: no bootable device

If you're using an old HDD with a new motherboard then you will get problems as the chipsets of the old motherboard and the new will not get along at all. The problems this can cause are many and various so I would recommend a format of the old drive anyways and this will resolve your problem.

You may be a victim of this update; if you have it just uninstall it >>

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.

This might point us to a non Microsoft driver causing the error, if one exists for it.

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

For some reason the collection application did not pick up any BSOD minidumps (it does this occasionally). Can you check C:\Windows\Minidump and upload anything you find there.

If there is nothing there then can you check the settings mentioned in this post to see if your system is set up correctly to collect dump files when it Blue Screens.

From the event logs I can see that you have had the following BSODs.

A:Inaccessible Boot Device - Blue Screen

You appear to actually have a HP 251-a123w Desktop PC (N0B07AA).
It was introduced in September 2015 in the U.S.A. and came with Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
What's the exact serial number and product number on yours?

If you go HERE and follow the instructions, you can purchase a USB recovery media kit for it.
Using it will revert that desktop back to its original new condition, along with all the drivers, programs, etc. that came in it.

If you go HERE, you can download the Media Creation Tool, then use it to download Windows 10 Home 64-bit, then create a bootable USB thumb drive or bootable DVD.
Using it will install Windows 10 Home 64-bit, but you then will need to install the needed drivers and programs afterwards.

You admit to not being computer-knowledgeable, so you'll probably need someone who is to help you.

I've been using my boyfriends computer which has some problems, which I managed to improve slightly by updating AdAware and installing Spybot and deleting as much crap as I thought I could get away with (his files, nothing originally on the computer). But lately its been running slower and the problems have gotten worse again. The system is continuously restarting itself without any prompting from me. Following this, one of two messages comes up:

"Reboot + select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key."

or, the blue screen,

"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:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware of software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

I've had this computer (ThinkPad R60e, WinXP Home SP3, 1.83 GHz 1 GB RAM) for years and its never had this kind of problem before: whenever I insert anything (thumb drive, camera, iPod) into the a USB port the computer goes into a blue screen of death saying "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" and "STOP: 0x00000050". I've noticed that with certain things like my external harddrive, it works fine if its plugged in while the computer boots, but not if inserted while its already active. I'm really not sure at all what could be causing this, I haven't changed anything drastically about the computer in quite a while. The only thing I can think of is my antivirus program (McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.5i) just recently found a trojan and I then did a full scan to get rid of it completely. Any ideas what could be causing this? Thanks!

P.S. I've search the forums already and it seems a few people have had this problem (like http://forums.techguy.org/windows-nt-2000-xp/437651-blue-screen-usb.html), but I don't see that anyone has really solved it.

I have a Z50-75 Signature Edition laptop from the Microsoft Store. I have upgraded it to 16gigs RAM and 1TB SSD both Crucial. I installed Windows 10 Pro and when I am playing World of Warcraft on this laptop intermittently it will get the thread stuck in device driver error. When I went to upgrade the hard drive to the SSD in the BIOS I had to change the SATA type to compatible for the drive to work. Things I have tried so far.1. Fully uninstalled the video device and driver software in device manager and add remove programs.2. Tried just installing the driver from Microsoft.3. Tried just installing from Lenovo.4. Tried the drivers from AMD. Each time doing a full uninstall of the device and software then rebooting. I guess my question is this a video driver issue or could it be another driver that is causing this issue.If it could be another driver then how can I find out what driver is causing the issue? Here is what my event viewer had on the error. The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.  The bugcheck was: 0x000000ea (0xffff9d0adfa6f080, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: de41580c-212b-4eba-8d0e-67f469f38e63. Any help would be appriciated. Thank you.

I am encountering frequent 'blue screen' reboots on my Windows XP SP2 System. Upon reboot, I get an online crash diagnosis indicating that I have a problem with an 'unknown' device driver. Any ideas on how I can diagnose and correct this problem?

A:Blue Screen Reboot due to unknown device driver problem

need to get more info. there should be a list of hex (00E000BF) blah de blah that would be helpful in diagnosing it. Also, a few things:

1. have you added/removed any hard/software recently?
2. how long has this been going on?
3. Does the blue screen stay up long enough to read? If not, right click my computer, go to advanced, startup and recovery, and make sure that the 'auto reboot' is unticked'.
4. How far in the reboot can you get? Can you get past POST? BIOS? Can you get all the way to windows?

the more ammo, the more likely someone here can kill this problem, to coin an analogy.

Hi there,

This is my first post in the forum. It is nice to meet you all

I have crashed twice in last two days with the BSOD. My computer is a three week old Dell Dimension 9150 Pentium D dual core processor with 1 gig ram.

The two BSOD messages were different. The first started RQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL with the message if this is the first time restart the computer, + a few suggestions from disabling bios memory options like caching or shadowing (that I didn't know how to do). The technical information was:-**STOP:0X0000000A (0x00650065, 0x0000001C, 0x00000000, 0x8050177F
Beginning dump of physical memory, physical memory dump complete.

Microsoft online crash analysis came back with - Error caused by a device driver, but there was no indication of which. No device driver showed in the BSOD. I looked in the system hardware and there were no exclamation marks or no other equipment etc.

The next day the same thing happened again, only this time there was an indication where the device driver problem was:-

The message this time was - **STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xBF80D2F1, 0xF7721778, 0x00000000

** Win32k.sys - Address BF80D2F1 base at BF800000, Datestamp 43446a58

I had a looked at the system event log and application log but nothing out of the ordinary was logged at the exact time of the crash. There were errors there mostly to do with Fax machine which I never have installed

I did a search for Win32k.sys (inc hidden files and folders) and ca... Read more

I am using the newest Raedon Crimison ReLive and i am getting every once in a while a Blue Screen of Death with Device Stuck in Driver. I searched up and i am finding that it has to do with the Raedon software or the chipset driver. So i unistalled everything. Now. Listen. When i bought the computer it came pre-installed with software including the AMD Catalyst (NOT the Crimison!) I would like to re-install that version of Catalyst into my computer. I would appreiate it tons if someone could tell me what verison that was and the chipset driver for it and where i can find it. I want the EXACT same one. I want that version because i didn't suffer BSoDs with that software. Also. It's a bummer that i can't get a recovery disc or a chance to download the recovery software on to a USB. That sucks awfully. If anyone can please help me. Anyone have the pre-installed software? Can someone point me out to the versions? ------------ Also a question about the Lenovo Companion. I noticed that when i updated my computer using the application it installed a AMD Chipset Driver version FOR the life of me i can't find anything on the web about that driver.

Blue screen error caused by a device or driver

You received this message because a hardware device, its driver, or related software has caused a blue screen error. This type of error means the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from potential data corruption or loss. In this case, we were unable to detect the specific device or driver that caused the problem.
Okay iam running windows xp....ive been having problems with my pc forever and i can never seem to work out if its bad ram or a memory issue. Anytime my pc is running for a long period of time it seems to hang and give me the blue screen, if i try to run a media program or burn a cd or anything along those lines it hangs also....What could this problem be? do i need to let someone look into my system or can it be resolved at all.

Ive had every error msg i believe...it seems to always tell me its a device error when it hangs or when i reboot it gives me that msg and then reports the problem..

Any help would be gratful...by the way ive run scans and all sorts, theirs no virus or anything, i run a and anti virus program by AVG.
