BSOD playing Games, Error e4, PFN_LIST_CORRUPT

Q: BSOD playing Games, Error e4, PFN_LIST_CORRUPT

Hi there,

i hope u can help me with my problem. I got random BSODs while playing games. First i thought of failing hardware, but i did some testing (memtest, dell diagnostics, prime95, furmark, etc) and all finished without having a bluescreen or some other strange behavior..
So i did a clean install of Win8.1 and newest drivers, but the BSODs happened again. I must say i use kind of an unique system configuration and i still have in mind that it could have something todo with that.

System:
Alienware 15 Notebook
i7 4710HQ
GTX970m (with Amplifier GTX980)
16GB RAM (Kingston)
250GB m.2 SSD
1 TB HDD

i tried also to debug the memorydump with Windbg64. It points to a module named nt, which i think must be ntosknl.exe (i know its like john doe...)

i really appreciate your work and i am very thankful for ur help

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.)

Hello sevenforums Community,
since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.
In the last two weeks i always got this message (STOP : 0x00007A (0xFFFF6FC50023598,0xFFFFFFFFC000000E,0x000000002A991880,0xFFFFF8A0046B30BE) ) without a sound and the pc didnt instantly reboot.
But the last days the Blackscreen stayed like 4 second so i couldnt see the error message on it, so i dont know if the error changed but there was this buzzing sound.

I really appreciate help (and sorry for my english skills ^^)

Hello Guys,


I have been having a problem with my #teamred PC since I built it 2 years ago but it's reached the point where it's getting me down now.
My system is:

Desktop PC
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit sp1 (original os) OEM (I think) - recent clean install by me (again)

*2 years old*
Motherboard Asus Crosshair V Formula Z

CPU AMD FX 9370 black edition @ 4.4GHz (not overclocked)

Corsair RM Series RM 1000 '80+ Gold' 1000W Power Supply

*1 year old*
TeamGroup Vulcan RED 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 PC3-19200C11 2400MHz Dual Channel Kit

I have done a full memtest86 (with both sticks in). It took 18 hours and showed no errors.

I play a lot of hours gaming. I used to play Evolve but got banned for 'product tampering' I didn't tamper with my game. I thought it was the games problem, keep crashing but now I play Titanfall 2 and still crash, I think that it may be my PC?

I Found that my Antec K?HLER H2O 1250 was failing to turn one of the fans so I have replaced that with a Corsair H105 water cooler.


Any help or advice would be most welcome...

A:BSOD error when playing games.

Hi. . .

I took a look at the three dump files that you attached and found the following:

STOP error - 0x0000010e, (0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) with dxgkrnl.sys , a DirectX driver, as the probable cause.

Now, a 0x10e indicates that the video memory manager has encountered a condition that it is unable to recover from. The only parameter of interest is the first 0x2 - An attempt was made to destroy a non-empty process heap. The process running at the time of the BSOD was 3DMark06.exe, by Futuremark Corporation and as you most likely know is for 3d game performance benchmarking purposes. If you have not done so, one solution that I found is to run this program at an Elevated level - right-click and select Run as Administrator.

Hi all,

After about a week of self diagnosis and doing everything possible, I come to you as my last resort. For the past week and a half, my PC has blue screened while playing pretty much every game I have. It used to do it very infrequently, and started while playing Assassin's Creed III. Since then, it's happened once during BioShock Infinite, and it happens pretty much all the time in Far Cry 3.

So, what have I done? I've cleaned the registry with CCleaner, use a driver cleaner to wipe my nVidia driver installation and reinstall, cleaned out my PC of all dust, made sure the video card was installed properly, etc, etc. I've pretty much done everything possible, and I still can't really come to a solid conclusion.

So, here I am, humbled and broken asking for help from those far more knowledgeable than I. My dump file from your wonderful Windows 7 diagnostic tool is below. If you could look through that and find something, anything, that could be causing this, I will be forever in your debt.

Thanks! (Oh, and you can find all my specs in my profile).

After reading additional threads on this forum, I have tried a new approach that seems to somewhat work. I have pushed Far Cry 3 down to medium settings and it seems to work fine now. I was going off of the recommended settings from nVidia Experience before, and I got a solid 30 FPS from it. It didn't seem like it was putting much stress on the card, and it wouldn't really explain why it blue screened ... Read more

Hi gongwan.

Are you overclocking?
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

When you Tested with Furmark or OCCT, what GPU did the programs test? The primary GPU Intel HD 4000 or the Optimus controlled GPU GTX 675M?
As per the settings, those stressing programs will run on the primary one, not on the nvidia GPU. Set the nvidia GPU as primary and run the tests again?

Older version is a nice idea, but 332.21 is not the right choice. Install the NVIDIA DRIVERS 314.22WHQL only.
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:
Let us know the results.

Hey guys. I've been getting this BSOD quite often recently while playing games. When it happens, it says the atimdag.sys is the source.

I already followed XFX's steps to reinstall the drivers (with safemode boot-up and driver-sweeper software. I have a feeling its the videocard that's acting up, because sometimes (on rarer occasions), the video driver crashes and restarts without any other error and sometimes once or twice, the computer booted up with a messed up screen, colored lines everywhere with no way to see whats going on.

I've attached the minidump report.

Your crashes indicate > 0x116
Please read the below very carefully.






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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps http://www.cpuid.com/Dichotomize

Recently started playing Mass Effect 2 it was working fine for the first 30 mins. But when he wakes up and picks up his weapon the screen turns off and its becomes unresponsive and the speakers produce a high pitched sound and sometimes the GPU fan sound like it going at 100%.

This also happens when I play GTA 4 and sometimes it happens when playing Skyrim.

A:BSOD playing games, error 0x00000116

Hi.

If this only happens when playing Mass Effect 2 then this may be a game bug.

Though is always good idea to check your hardware.

Download and install the Driver Sweeper.

Download the most recent software\driver for your NVIDIA .

Uninstall nvidia software\driver,restart in safe mode,run driver sweeper,choose only NVIDIA-Display and clean,restart in normal mode.

Install the new nvidia software\driver,restart.

Update DirectX .
Run the nvidia-video-card-test post here the results.


Run RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Let it run until at least 9 passes are completed, or errors are found (whichever comes first). The longer you run it, the better.

Hi All,

Having a BSOD problem whenever I'm playing any games, especially when it becomes graphically intensive.

Have used memtest, seems there are no problems with RAM, have made sure the correct RAM configuration is being used.

System Specs:

Windows 7 x64 OEM (system & OS installed 2 months ago)

Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 LE
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500
RAM: Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 (Dual Channel Kit)
GPU: ASUS GTX 550 Ti
HDD: Corsair 80gb Force Series SSD

Any chance I could possibly have some help to determine the cause of these BSODs?

The necessary files are attached accordingly.

Thanks in advance!

These crashes were caused by memory corruption (probably a driver). Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

Just ran memtest 86 4.20 and found some more errors.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Each stick of RAM is fine after 6 passes each in slot 1, and each slot tested with no errors with one DIMM, but once all 4 DIMMs of ram are tested together i get errors. I just dont know what the errors mean. Does this mean that my memory slots on my mobo are bad??
appreciate some help... thanks.

PS the ram is all the same G skill Ripjaws 1600 4gb x4

After multiple days of memtest only 4 errors are coming up. None of the DIMMs have errors by themselves only when all 4 are in the memory slots. Strange thing is that I had 119 errors on the first pass, then tested the memory DIMMs individually and now only get 4 errors. Any ideas?

A:BSOD playing games,various error codes

Hi Holfs.

All the crash dumps I have checked are different bugcheck codes, and all are memory corruption related.

The memory corruption must not necessarily be the failure of the physical RAM, but it is best to test it at first. Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Hi,
I could use a little help here because this is really getting on my nerves.

The problem occurs when i try to run a game. Everything goes smooth to the part when bsod appears, usally after 10-15 minutes, depending on a game im trying.

At first i thought it's video driver that is causing trouble, but after changing several of them the results didn't got any better.

CPU: AMD Athlon x64 6000+
MEM: 4gb (Kingmax 2x1gb + Kingston 2gb) DDR2
VGA: Powercolor HD6850
PU: Chieftec 450w
Sys: Win7 Ultimate x64

What i tried so far:Changing video card drivers (with or without control panel)
Reinstalling a fresh copy of windows 7
BlueScreenViewer shows it's ntoskrnl.exe related
sfc /scannow fixed some errors, but some of them still appear and can not be fixed
memtest86+ 4.20, 6 passes, no errors reported
Video Memory Stress Test v1.7, only one pass, showed no errors
chkdisk displayed some errors i think but they were fixed

Hello,

2 days ago, I had a couple BSOD errors which occurred when playing "Counter-Strike: GO". I figured that they were related to my graphics drivers, and since then have updated them. The BSOD stopped occuring after that.

Today however, a new BSOD error occured, talking about a potential bios issue, however there was no driver listed and no dump was collected after the issue. Because of this I decided to use verifier.exe to figure out which driver caused the issue.

I followed the steps outlined here and my system did indeed bsod upon startup, before even reaching the user screen.

This dump file should be the most recent one, and the one I am having trouble with. The required files are attached.

Thanks,

I am having trouble with system stability playing games. I suspect it's overclock related, but I've fiddled with so many settings and can't get it to stay stable. I was wondering if someone might be able to help by looking through my logs. Before I totally ditch the OC or spend the rest of my life fiddling with voltages, I wanted to confirm it isn't a problem with something else. I have looked through the logs some, but I don't really understand what I'm looking at.

Is there somewhere else I can look for a guide to understanding the info that the SF Diagnostic Tool compiles?

System info:
i5 4690k @ 4.2 GHz
PowerColor AMD Radeon R9 290 PCs+ 4 GB

Samsung 840 EVO 500 GB SSD
Seagate Barracuda 3 TB 7200 RPM HDD
Silverstone SST-SX600G PSU (600W, 80+ Gold)

Other things I've done:
Stress test with AIDA-64 - no trouble, can run for hours and hours. Highest CPU temps under stress ~74C
Run Memtest86+ for 10 passes - no errors
Run graphics benchmarking/ stress testing with no problems (Furmark, Unigine Valley/ Heaven)
Monitor temps on everything - CPU never goes above 75C in stress testing, mostly averages mid 60s during stress testing, low 30s at idle, and 50s gaming. GPU stays very cool, never surpassing 70C even in extended stress testing

A:BSOD Playing Games, Error 0x124

The STOP 0x124 error is most often a hardware/compatibility/or low-level driver problem.
The way to start is with these hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics (feel free to skip those that you've already run). From what I saw in my analysis, I'd suspect compatibility and low-level drivers before I suspect a hardware problem - but still run the diagnostics "just in case".

Only 58 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 70 to 90 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Don't worry about the specific number, it's just important that you have checked and installed any updates that were available (and didn't experience any errors).

Due to the number of Live Kernel Events in the WER section of MSINFO32, Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog))
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

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 which one was responsible.

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.

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.

Hello,

Lets start from the beginning:
My old hard drive got broken (stared making weird noises and random freezes of the system). so i swapped it out for a other one i was previously using for my Media center.

With installing i had some problems with a bad DVD which also "destroyed" my HDD. even with a USB install i kept getting errors if it even found my HDD. so i booted linux and wrote the whole disk with 0's.

After this the install went perfect. though i believe i sometimes had a hiccup nothing serious.

Now the problem:
I keep getting 0x000000f4 errors when i play games, in this case COD BO2. The time i get these is (for me) completely random, sometimes i can play 1 mission but 1 night i could play 3 after each other with no error.

What i have tried so far:

ran check disk: no errors found.
ran mem check: no errors found.
updated all my drivers to the latest.
switched my drive to a other sata slot.

All with no effect.

I also start checking my events. here i found some weird errors:

"The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort4."

which came up several times.

Also previously when my DVD drive was connected it caused Windows to boot extremly slow. Now it is in my Sata 6gb slot and it is working fine again.

Hey guys any help you could give me would be much appreciated this is driving me nuts over here. Anytime I play a game seems to happen with any and all games I have tried I get a BSOD. I might play for an hour or two before it happens, or I might play for 10 to 15 minutes when it happens. Seems random and not so much as if its at a set point and then happening due to something trying to run. I have attached the Zip file for you to take a look and see what you can find.

Much thanks,

ARF

Hello sevenforums users.

I am having a problem lately with frequent BSOD x124 happening at my PC , most noticeably while playing games.

I've been reading that this problem is due to hardware temperatures going high, and this would make sense for me as I OC-ed my CPU, but it's strange since I never had this BSOD happening before (which was 6+ months after I OC-ed my CPU) and seeing it suddenly appear confuses me.

I've gone to check with CPUID HardwareMonitor my CPU temps and they seem okay, but there is a discrepancy where it shows that my CPU voltages are set to 1.4 even though at BIOS it states that they are 1.3 (how I put it when OC-ing) , so I don't know which one is right here.

When playing games I don't run any applications in the background (except small ones like Anti Virus and NVIDIA Experience), so I'm not sure what could be causing heating issues.

I've been playing some games which are far more CPU demanding than I do now and the BSOD's never happened. Any suggestions for this problem.

Here is the attachment, and even if I don't fix this, I just want to say thank you to all the community for all the work you've done, as I had other problems before and you folk helped me fix them.

You are running an ASUS Product ID (PID) on an ASRock board.
This makes your installation counterfeit.
Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.

Code:
OS Configuration: Standalone Workstation
OS Build Type: Multiprocessor Free

Hello everyone. My problems with this BSOD started some weeks ago, and it only happens if im playing games, sometimes I can play for 1-2 days and it won't restart, sometimes it will crash after 2-3 hours, it won't crash if i play 2D games like Brawlhalla for example, but any other 3D game eventually will crash at some point, with showing stripes or black screen, while sound stutters behind and then getting "Hyper Transport Sync Flood Error occured on last boot". My temperatures are 49-50 celsius at load, while in idle 30-35. While i was looking in BlueScreen Viewer, every dump file showed the error was cause by ntskrnl.exe or ntkrnlmp.exe, but the last one that occured today showed ntkrnlmp AND dump_ataport.sys, labeled in red color. I have no idea what is causing this, also it says WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR if i use WhoCrashed. I'm hoping some of more experienced people here will be able to help, cause this is really frustrating :S Thanks in advance!

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to look at my thread!

I've been having problems with BSOD's while playing quite a variety of games (it will not happen immediately, or always, most of the time it will occur after ~30 minutes of play, and either result in the game crashing or the BSOD). I have run Memtest86+ with no errors, and a Hard disk check shows no problems with the S.M.A.R.T. information on my two drives. I reformatted and reinstalled windows after this started and the problem has not changed.

I have exhausted anything I can think of to fix this, so if someone has any ideas that would be very much appreciated! Thank you!

A:BSOD playing some games, usually 0x04e error

Welcome

Well actually 2 of your dumps out of 4 show memory corruption
How many passes did you run memtest for?
Please do it again overnight for 8 passes at least
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

If it still finds no errors please run the extended version of:
Memory Diagnostics Tool

The other two dumps do not indicate anything specific
Follow the tutorial below to repair Windows 7 System Files
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Ps. You're not overclocking, are you?

Post back once you've done these

Since this thread is hanging on both the BDoS relevance and hardware/software/graphics cards sections I have been trying to decide where I should post it. I've eventually decided to post it in the BDoS section. If users or staff should find this topic inappropriate in this location I'd have it corrected immediately.

I have been getting blue screens related to my video card for quite a while now both when playing a game or simply sitting idle. There are certain things that trigger a bluescreen or a driver failure (i.e. opening MP4 files, starting applications that use DX or OpenGL such as games ect.)

My graphics card is an AMD Radeon HD 5670 with 1024 MB GDDR5 memory. By default my core clock is running a maximum of 775 MHz and my memory clock is running a maximum 1010MHz. I've experienced more system stability and have actually been able to run The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim smoothly by declocking both clocks down by a 100 MHz (675MHz / 910Mhz) for multiple hours but am still experiencing issues and occasional blue screens from session to session (some sessions seem more stable than others). The power supply to the processor is set by default to a minimum of 800 MHz and a maximum of 2800 MHz.

My graphics card drivers are run by Catalyst Control Center 13.12 of which the driver packet version is registered as 13.251-131206a-166389C-ATI. My Direct3D versions is 9.14.10.01001 and my OpenGL version is 6.14.10.12618.

Hi LemonPower.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Let us know the results.

As title, i crash more swiftly in more demanding games. At first I thought it might be that something was overheating, but it appears the warmest it gets is my graphics card at around 65C. unplugged and replugged in the hard drive as well, didn't help.
