Preferred Solution: Frequent BSODs, restarts, freezes 0x4000000000000000

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Your uploads dont contain any crash dump file.

Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Follow it manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump.

i was attacked by malware recently which i probably removed before i could post the topic here

i am also having bsods many times, not specifically but  few days before everytime i will start my computer after looging into my user account, my computer will automatically restart.
 
also in the thread above i exoerienced a bsod while running a scan
 
i think some driver or files have gone corrupt on my computer.
 
I also need to mention i started having bsods from november after a virus infection or maybe because i removed dameon tools i am not really sure.
 
It did something weird though, on booting it gave me an error hard disk not found, i knew it has something to do with the malware or driver problem.
 
so i chnaged the hard disk controller to ide from sata and my it booted.
 
from then on i have not changed it back to sata but i am having serious errors every now and then, including recent malware attacks.
 
currently it appears clean but errors are there.
 
please let me know what should I do?

You need to...complete the topic at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/487434/getting-reinfected-again-and-again/page-2#entry3000528 before opening any other topics involving this same system.
 
As long as that malware topic is open, this topic and any others that you might start...will be closed.
 
Once the possibility of malware has been removed from your system situation...you can then move on to seeming issues that have nothing to do with malware.
 
I suggest that you send a PM to your Helper in the malware forrum...and verify that you have no malware issues and request that he thus close your MRL topic.  Then, I will reopen this topic.
 
This topic is now closed.

Hi guys,

I've been having non-stop problems with one of my machines that runs on Windows 7. Certain applications, such as streamed content (skype video calls, hardware accelerated flash) or otherwise games seem to be able to cause the machine to crash, either freezing and stuttering, or automatically restarting.

The machine was built new less than a year ago and I've had the problems the entire time, however they are becoming more and more prevalent.

I don't seem to have any issues with my actual hardware (my memory is fine, and the machine is quite happy to run normally in XP/Vista). I do however require Windows 7 and a stable 64-bit environment for work purposes, so I can't switch to an older OS. All of my drivers are up to date.

Since there's no BSOD, it's quite hard to pin down. It's been suggested before that there might be a problem with Intel's SpeedStep tech and Windows 7 on certain configurations, and disabling SpeedStep did seem to mitigate the problem for a short period of time.

Anyone have any ideas?

System spec:

OS: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
Mobo: Asus P7P55D Pro
Bios: ver 08.00.15 (default)
CPU: Intel Core i7 860
RAM: 8Gb Corsair Dominator
GPU: Palit 1Gb GeForce 9800 GT
Many thanks,

Luke

Hi, my pc randomly freezes and/or give different bsods. When I used the dm log collector the pc froze two times, had to force restart. The third time luckily managed to finish the data extraction.
I have just finished a memtest test, did 8 passes, no errors, so I guess the RAM is fine.
I also have recently updated the drivers, but the problems are still here.

For context: these problems actually began last summer, with an increasing number of random bsods. At the beginning I tried to keep note of them, but every time it was a different one, and was rather difficult to find leads. Then the pc began freezing constantly, to the point it would froze after a few seconds, even during startup or in safe-mode.
Not exactly sure about what to do, I opened it up, cleaned it thoroughly, and it worked! The pc no longer had problems.
However six months later they started again. This time the freezes were kinda different, there were loud crackling noises from the speakers, even when no audio was playing at the moment, and sometimes the video on the screen would be severely distorted.
I did the cleaning again, and it worked for a couple of months. I want to point out it wasn't incredibly dirty, actually it seemed mostly clean, but I cleaned it anyway. I even reapplied the thermal paste.
But now the problems came back again, I guess cleaning it's just a temporary solution, I want to fix it for good this time. So I came asking for your help guys.
Thanks for helping me.

Hello,

I've recently started to get the blue screen alternating with reboots and freezes, which started a couple of months ago. Initially it was only once every 2 weeks or so, then 1-2 per week, and now I have randomly either of them a few times a day. I've actually changed the settings to not reboot automatically when coming up with errors so I can finally get a log of the dump files, hoping I can figure out what is going wrong. Alas, I can't do it on my own, hence my help request here.

I've attached the files are per the sticky post, hope everything was done correctly.

Is Vista . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? 32bit
- the original installed OS on the system? original installation (bought the pc from HP, it came preinstalled)
- an OEM or full retail version? OEM
- OEM = came pre-installed on system
- Full Retail = you purchased it from retailer

- What is the age of system (hardware)? About 2-3 years old
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) over a year old

This might be not relevant but I've noticed that the crashes (specially the freezups) tend to happen when I have Window Media Player open watching something, or I'm listening to Winamp...might be just a coincidence though, but thought to mention just in case it's relevant.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Welcome

I have reviewed your files, they are consistent. It appears that the cause of your problem is a driver. I will give you the instuctions for a driver verifier test. Please be sure that you understand the instructions and the caution that you should observe.


Driver Verifier Inst

Since the driver that crashed you has not been listed you shouldrun driver verifier
Please run Verifier with these settings:
[quote]
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'lltell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you thedriver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can'tget to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registryto disable Driver Verifier.
So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've gotaccess to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make aSystem Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7Startup Repair feature).
Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and pressEnter
- 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"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like. From my limitedexperimentation ... Read more

I recently did a fresh install of Windows 7 x64 (SP1) on my system after secure erasing the SSDs and reformatting my other HDDs.

I did this because I was getting random BSODs and hangs where the outer two monitors would go black and the center monitor became blurry and the entire system just locked up; I had to hard reboot to 'reset' it.

After the fresh install of the OS, new drivers, and all the updates, the problem has returned. So far I've gotten about 3 BSODs and about 5 freezes/lock ups.

The BCC were 0x116 and 0x7e.

I tested my GPUs with several benchmarks and games and they all passed without issue (I have four EVGA GTX-580 Classified 3GB in 4-Way SLI). I'm running the 296.10 WHQL drivers from NVIDIA.

I've done the SFC /SCANNOW, CHKDSK, and also run Malwarebytes and full system scan and there were no errors or integrity violations.

I cannot for the life of me figure out what the issue is. Is it something to do with the Power Management options? I have it on "High Performance" and disabled "Wake Timers".

Please help!

Hello,
I am having some serious problems with my PC. It freezes, speakers are sometimes making a RRRRRR noise (last package of bits sent to speakers, I think, being "produced" over and over again), sometimes it just restarts, then it freezes in bootup (even in BIOS or in POST, just EVERYWHERE), sometimes the image on display gets "shattered" (as if the original image, the last frame displayed, got mixed up in lines and squares of different colors), sometimes it freezes in BSOD (that's hillarious), I could go on and on. I am almost sure my motherboard is faulty, but I consider this my "last hope" before making a complaint and trying to get a new mobo. I hope I did everything right (regarding the BSOD reporting protocols).

OS specs: Win 7 x64 Ultimate, OEM, hardware is mostly new (half a year, but one GPU is 3 years old nad my optical drive is 4 y.o.), OS installation is 3 weeks old.

P.S.: I do have Avast antivirus even though in System health report there is "no anti-virus detected" (dunno why), and as you may have noticed, English is not my first language, therefore I apologize for any errors and you may also find some stuff written in Czech in the BSOD regarding files.

My computer occasionally restarts itself or shuts down. Sometimes it will do a complete restart and I only know it because the Active Desktop Recovery screen is on my desktop suddenly. Sometimes it will freeze and the monitor will go black and flash an error message intermittently ("No input signal" message) after which I can no longer manually restart or shut down the computer, but instead have to turn it off and back on using the main power switch at the back of the tower. Sometimes it will restart but stop at the first black screen to alert me with the statement "S.M.A.R.T. status bad backup and replace error..." and asking me to press F1 to continue (I have an extra HD but moved files off it some time ago). The computer will restart/shutdown/freeze as little as once per day or as often as every 10 minutes if I am doing something like playing in foobar2000 or have photoshop open, anything I happen to enjoy, it seems . I cannot pinpoint these programs as culprits, only that I've noticed that the pc will absolutely do something when foobar2000 is running, for example. It shuts down at seemingly random times too.

If you wish to have others 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.

Hi,
It used to be rather erratic and happen only once every couple of days, then I would sometimes have stretches as long as a week or more without any crashes but recently I've been having them systematically at EVERY startup!
 
I start my computer, it will usually boot up into Windows 10 Pro 64bit and then I rarely have to wait more than a few minutes for it to freeze or suddenly restart (more rarely a BSOD). Then starts a cycle of a few more restarts and freezes - always happening almost instantly or after a few minutes - before it eventually stabilizes and can then run reliably for the rest of the day!?
 
This is why I've ruled out temperature problems as it would seem the reverse would happen, i.e. crashing AFTER sufficient time was given to the system to heat up.
 
I have run 2 passes of MemTest without any errors but I've heard that as many as 10 might be needed to reliably exclude RAM problems but seeing how slow it runs the test on my 12Gb of memory, I couldn't be without my PC for that long!? 
 
Other useful troubleshooting info: I've recently upgraded to Win 10 in hope of solving my problems - it was already happening under Win 7. It's a 2nd PC I bought off ebay some +- 2 years ago so I don't know how old exactly it is but you'll see the specs in the attached files I guess.

Hello there, I'm having a few problems with my computer that I've been unable to figure out on my own. Starting a few months ago my computer began getting a few BSODs, typically while playing The Sims 3. Over time the computer would also restart on it's own with no BSOD, or sometimes just freeze completely. And even when I do get a BSOD, it's not always the same error. Now it happens even when I'm not gaming, and it occurs roughly every other day or so. In fact today I had 3 incidents where the computer seemed to shut off completely. The 3rd time it did that, the fan came on afterwards as if the computer was trying to restart, but that was it. Needless to say I'm a bit concerned and confused as to what's causing the problem.

If anyone can help out it would be greatly appreciated. I've included an attachment with everything this thread says I would need.

Just a bit of a heads up:

- Windows XP was originally installed, I installed Windows 7 last August or September
- The computer as a whole is roughly 3.5 years old, though some bits(like my sound card and video card) are newer

Hello All - please let me say thanks in advance for any assistance. I completed the system specs form when I set up my account.

I have an HP Pavilion p6540f with the following:
windows 7 prof 64-bit SP1,
8GB RAM,
two 1TB Seagate hard drives,
an AMD Phenom cpu,
an ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card
a Foxconn motherboard.

My problem is BSODs, spontaneous reboots or system freezes. Based on what I've seen on the internet, there seem to be several areas which could cause such a problem: something wrong with the RAM, overheating, or underpowered, the graphics driver, or something in the BIOS that needs upgrading.

As for the memory, I burned memtest to a cd and booted from that and let memtest run over night to check the RAM. It came back with no errors.

As to the overheating and underpowered possibilities, there is a CPU fan, a case fan and the fans associated with the power supply. The case fan and cpu fan seem to be functioning normally. I had the original 250W power supply replaced with a new 350W power supply which also seems to be functioning normally.

As far as the BIOS is concerned, it's AMI v6.04, dated 5/21/2010. There is a file available from HP, and that I've downloaded, called sp49851.exe. This is supposed to upgrade the BIOS to v6.09. I thought upgrading would be good since one of the things it's supposed to fix is a problem related to the machine not coming out of hibernation which sounds similar to what I've been experiencing. I ran this yesterday eveni... Read more

Hi,

I have bought a new MSI GE60 2 OC laptop with a Windows 7 Premium Home Edition (64 bits, SP 1).
I have filled my system specs when registering here but if I need to post them in this thread please let me know.

I have been encountering frequent, awful crashes. These take 3 forms and all seem to happen completely randomly; I have not been able to identify any pattern.

- most of the time my computer freezes with no option for me but to hard reboot it by holding the power button down or unplugging it if the battery's out (happens up to 10-12 times a day... I fear for my machine at this point). The screen often displays artefacts (long rectangular, black-and-white shapes forming lines stretching from the left to the right of my monitor); these sometimes move and "shimmer". If the PC is plugged on the A/C, but the battery is in, and I unplug it, the moving artefacts become still. If a sound is playing before the crash, the speakers blast full-volume static noise. Sometimes I feel a slight jolt inside the machine under the keyboard, but maybe it's just my imagination + the surprise of sudden artefacts and static noises, and/or the hard drive stopping (?). The fans keep working right. After the hard reboot I have no record of what happened before.

here's what the monitor looks like when it happens (not my actual monitor)
- I also get BSODs. I mostly get BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER, kernel power state failure, driver power state (?) failure, and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL 0x000... Read more

Hi,

I'm getting frequent crashes on my HTPC in Windows 7 usually without a blue screen of death (I have had maybe one or two BSODs). Sometimes the computer will crash almost as soon as I switch it on (i.e. when I'm using internet explorer), sometimes it crashes when watching a bluray in media center and sometimes when doing nothing at all.

The system was stable, however about 5 months ago I installed a new CPU and cooler, and about a month or so later I started getting these problems. I have tried the following:

- Virus scan
- Memory check (memtest86 multiple passes)
- CPU stress test (prime95)
- Hard drive check disk
- Graphics card stress (furmark)

The graphics card did show signs of overheating and the PC crashed shortly afterwards, however I have since tried the onboard graphics card and the problems are still there. The fact that the PC can crash shortly after booting also suggests its not this.

I can only think of three things that it can now be:

- Power supply (no idea how to test this, the power supply is a good quality Corsair, with more than enough power for the components and like I said, the system used to be stable).
- Motherboard (could be this I guess - potentially I damaged it when I installed the new CPU)
- Windows 7 (hence the reason I'm here!)

In trying to fix the PC I have used a registry fixer by a reputable company (I forget which one).

Hi,

First off thanks for reading my post. Basically my computer keeps having errors and they are nothing specific - nothing seems to set them off. Sometimes I'll be working and the computer will just freeze, or restart automatically. Often programs (especially the Windows ones such as Media Player, Live Messenger and IE explorer) will keep crashing with the error report dialog box. I have just reinstalled Windows so it can't be that.

A:Random crashes, restarts, freezes, BSODs help please!!

Since you've just installed windows, you might have a hardware issue and you can try the following if you're sort of a hands-on type or get a knowledgeable friend such as a Geek to help
(1)Fan failure on the cpu or video card causing high temps. If fans appear to running full speed and no strange noises then possibly:
(2)Memory stick failure. If you have 2 ram sticks, try removing one at a time to isolate the issue. If you only have one stick, memory is relatively cheap so buy another 1 gb and repalce it. If you still have same failures, put original stick back in and now will have 2 gb to improve performance once PC is fixed..

I have a Compaq Presario SRF710F that has been working fine (except for the past few weeks) since December 2008. The only hardware I've replaced on it was to install a more powerful video card a few years ago.

In the past few weeks, it's started giving me random failures. Sometimes it's a BSOD (the actual error message varies most times), sometimes the whole computer freezes up and I have to restart manually, and sometimes it just turns off suddenly and reboots. Sometimes it goes a few days between errors, and sometimes it can't even finish rebooting from a failure before another one occurs.

It started a few weeks ago when I uninstalled iTunes and installed Samsung Kies and Media Monkey (ditched the iPhone for a Galaxy S3!).

I have taken the following steps:restore from restore point
deep antivirus scan with MWB and MSE
memtest86 (11 passes with no errors detected)
reinstall Windows

Here are some other specs:

For the past few weeks, my computer has been experiencing a couple of different failures. Sometimes it freezes up (including the mouse), sometimes it BSODs (different error messages at different times), and sometimes it just shuts off and restarts, as if the power had been momentarily cut.

Hello. Im a norwegian and have already written much about this problem in norwegian. Im not really good at english. So I can't write all that I've written to Zepto and on a norwegian forum. But I will atleast give you the logfiles...

Not every BSOD seems to have created a log file, some BSODs dont seem to dump properly for example. The BSOD's occur randomly. I can play several hours and end the game normal without problems or it can occur soon after startup without me even getting started up a browser. So personally I do not think this is a overheating problem, graphic card problem or cpu-problem.

I have searched with Vista's memory test, and memtest86. They found no errors and memtest passed 6 times the second time I tried to ran it. The first time I ran it, it froze during testing, so I had to restart and then it passed 6 times.

I have searched my PC with antivirus and found none. I have not been on any suspicious sites either.

The startup-problems is a pain when they occur. Like, last night. Bluescreen. Then I started it up again, but it didnt pass one of the boot up stages. It froze. So after I had waited a while I did a turn off, then I turned it on again. Black screen, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, still a black screen. I repeated this process 4-5 times, every time a black screen that didnt go away, the PC was on, but screen black and I couldnt hear any boot-up sound, only the fan.

Hi. . .

I would like the links to your other dumps. I see in photos & dumps that you are updated w/ Vista SP1. When did you update? One photo shows WERCON screen - TrustedInstaller crashing constantly since at least October 2nd. When did the system problems begin?

Can you run in SAFEMODE w/ any greater stability than normal windows boot-up?

Please run msinfo32 when possible & save in NFO format (NFO file extension). I am not sure if it will be in English or not - but OK for now.

Also, I'd like a Vista System Health report in HTML format. Please do the following:
START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select Run as Administrator | the black cmd prompt (DOS) screen will appear - type the following:

Code:
perfmon /report
It will take about a minute to run... then save it as an HTML file.

Please zip it & msinfo32 NFO file up and attach to your next post.

Hi there this is my first post on these forums so apologies if I'm not too familiar with the layout. I'm not too computer savy so if anyone could try simplify any answers/solutions that would be great. Basically the problem is for the past few months around start up of windows 7 I was getting freezes, BSOD errors (in particular IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and Page_fault_in_non_paged_area being the main ones) and my pc would be in a continuous loop of booting then freezing or shutting down and I couldn't get the pc to work. I thought the problem could be corrupted windows files so I reinstalled windows onto my computer using the isntallation disk and installed drivers and all was working fine for around 4 days. Each day my windows would have importaint updates so I installed them when prompted. One day I all of a sudden started getting the same errors I got before, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGEED_AREA and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and no new software had been installed at this point. I have tested ram and my hard drive with no errors showing although when looking at properties of my computer I have 20GB of ram (16GB Available) not sure if this has anything to do with it (2 x 8 GB sticks 1 X 4 GB stick). Hopefully you guys can help me out and prevent me shelling out on a new rig. Thank you, Conor .

So the problem is that midway through gaming and as of late when browsing the web in search of a cure it restarts itself. What is weird is that it only happens to certain games, first just Hearthstone then Hand of Fate, then Skyrim, then Endless space. I also play Rome2, Civ5 and Payday2 regularly but so far those haven't restarted the pc.

I don't get a BSOD, turning off automatic restart doesn't BSOD either. It doesn't create a minidump, even with the settings recommended here. Malwarebytes and Combofix don't detect anything. Drivers are all up to date, I cleaned the dust from it as well. I rearranged the RAM, checked each individually in each slot (for completeness), ran memtests.

The pc isn't overheating as I've had hours long game sessions of the ones I am able to play but the others crash within the first 5 or so minutes.

Hi everyone and thank you in advance for all your help!

I've actually been getting quite a few problems with my laptop - mostly BSODs. They occur at least once a day doing a variety of things, so I can't really pinpoint the problem. Most recently, I've been trying to download some steam games and install directly onto my external HD - it seems pretty consistent then. Also, my laptop doesn't seem to be saving all the BSODs I get - I look at either the minidump folder or memory.dmp...frequently it doesn't record anything. It's also set to not restart automatically (I thought this would help) Thank you very much again!

? OS - Windows 7
? 64-bit
? Original - Windows 7
? OEM Version
? Laptop - 2.5 years old
? OS - 7 months (Reinstalled on new ssd)

- Geforce GT 555M/HD Graphics 3000
? i7-2670QM (2.20)
? Power Supply - OEM

- Alienware m14x (R1)

EDIT: Also, sorry for the repost - posted it into the wrong section. Since the posting, I updated the Killer driver, but still seeing problems within "system security checks" in perfmon

Hello Bleeping people (is that being rude?),
Since December of last year my computer of a few months old started to BSOD frequently, as in several times a day, at seemingly random moments doing different things.
I since tried a number of things and even shipped the entire thing back to the company that built it for me. They returned it recently, yet the problem persists. Obviously they didn't do a very good job.
I don't know what's wrong. Could you please help me figure out what to do next?
Speccy:
http://speccy.piriform.com/results/QzUtB1YdlZLha2xnF6CsrvN
I'm including the last 10 event viewer logs, installed programs and list of users, partitions and memory size as generated by MiniToolBox as an attached file.
My apologies that some of it may be in Dutch as that's what the operating system is set to, but I trust it shouldn't be too much of an issue for you clever people.

I'm on a bit over year-old HP Pavillion dvt7 with Vista Home Premium x64 SP2 full retail. I had been experiencing frequent, similar, crashes and BSODs a couple of months ago and had searched to resolve the problem, but they stopped entirely until now so I had forgotten about them. They have started up again and occur seemingly at random. Occasionally a crash followed by a BSOD will happen while I am watching a movie; the sound stutters and the video freezes, then the computer crashes. The issue has not disabled my computer but is, as you may imagine, a great inconvenience.

Thank you for your time.

A:Frequent BSODs

You have given me one report. TBH, BSODs can very rarely be solved on the basis of one report. Can you give me all the others that you have had.
In either case, I will try my best to help. Waiting for your reply.

? PSU = CORSAIR VX 550W ATX12V

I am unsure what you mean by system manufacturer and model number, I built this pc myself.

The BSODs come in series, when they first happen they will happen again after each boot up a few times.

It mainly happens when I watch video streams or play video games.

Now and then the PC refuses to boot after a BSOD, and a few times the PC has flat out BSODed after a boot idle in windows.

I have attached an image showing SpeedFan, I read an old guide somewhere that the voltage numbers shouldn't vary too much, but I don't know what to make of it. Disregard the red lines, I made those myself.

A:Frequent BSODs, please help.

I'm not entirely confident on voltage readings myself, but I always hear anything above 10% difference is gonna be bad, and some of these are way beyond that (like the +5V). You may wanna look at getting a replacement PSU, lad. Corsair PSU's aren't bad at all, but there's always the chance of getting one that didn't pull through well during manufacturing. The rampant nature of the crashes also display hardware problems, especially since not only do many of them display memory corruption as the cause, but also that some of the crashdumps themselves have been corrupted.

If you feel like forgoing that for now, you wanna do some hardware tests. Try some of these:

CPU: Prime95 (Torture Test; Large FFTs, 9+ hours)
Memory: Memtest86+ (~7 passes)
GPU: MemtestG80/CL

Note that if it does have to do with the PSU, errors should pop up in multiple hardware tests. CPU also will affect Memory test (though not sure GPU).

So I've had 4 BSODs in the past 2 days, I remembered there was a windows update just before that, so that might have been the reason. I got the blue screens while playing games and having google chrome open. So I followed the upload instructions, but I didn't get the .zip file that was supposed to be saved on my desktop, so I'll just upload the .dmp files and BSOD details from Windows. Please help, if you can.

Hello,

I have recently started having regular BSOD's, and am unsure of the cause. Can anybody help? My computer has been working perfectly for the past 2 and a half years without fault, until around 2 weeks ago in recieving frequent BSOD's, and getting more frequent over time.

A:BSODs getting more frequent

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Unfortunately, there are no minidumps in your attachments that we can analyse, this may be due to an assortment of factors, 3 possibilities from your software list are Ccleaner, Evidence Eliminator and possibly PC Tools Registry Mechanic. Please stop the first 2 from auto-running and uninstall the PC Tools software, it's more likely to break something than it is to fix anything.

I see mention of one recent BSOD, 0xD1_code_av_bad_ip_wdf01000, this points to a device driver as being a likely cause.

There is only 3GB free space on your E: drive (external backup drive?). As Acronis is running at startup, this may be a cause of problems.

You are running Bearshare at startup too, please disable or uninstall this software.

There's no sign of any antivirus software running, please install MSE and enable the built-in Windows firewall: Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

A:Frequent Bsods, help!

Welcome!

As far as I can see, the problem was caused by bad RAM. Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using ImgBurn. Boot from the CD, and run at least 5 passes.

Hello, I've been experiencing frequent BSODs and freezes lately. Most of the BSODs are with code 0x100000d1, 0x1000007f and 0x1000000a. Most of them are with string DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP.

I've downloaded BlueScreenViewer and it points to NDIS.sys and nv4_mini.sys as the causes of most BSODs. I even reinstalled my OS today and after installing/updating all needed drivers I still got 8 BSODs for about an hour. Please help, dmp files attached.

A:Frequent BSODs

NDIS.sys is you onboard Network (Ethernet) adapter. nv4_mini.sys is related to an iNvidia video card. What is the make and model # of your computer/Motherboard?
do you have a separate video card, or are you plugging the monitor to the onboard VGA? Go to the manufacturers site and type in your make and model# and download an updated driver for the Network Adapter and your Video card.

Never had issues with the system until recently. Now it BSODs frequently and some times it will power on but nothing will display. Ran memtest86+ for 24 hrs and no issues, also ran Prime 95 without problems. SSD looks like it's in good health too.

FurMark GPU stress test also didnt reveal any crashing.

I'm thinking it's the motherboard but I just wanted to be sure.

Tried to run perfmon /report but got error "Error occured while attempting to generate the report. The operator or administrator has refused the request". Tried running as admin same results, did use Win + X

A:Frequent BSODs W8.1

Hi,

We have two bug checks:

*Be 100% sure your SSD firmware is up to date*

KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE (139)

This bug check indicates that the kernel has detected the corruption of a critical data structure.

BugCheck 139, {3, ffffd000e97374c0, ffffd000e9737418, 0}

The 1st parameter of the bugcheck is 3 which indicates that a LIST_ENTRY was corrupted. Code 3, LIST_ENTRY corruption. This type of bug check can be difficult to track down and indicates that an inconsistency has been introduced into a doubly-linked list (detected when an individual list entry element is added to or removed from the list).

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (d1)

This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.

A driver tried to access an address that is pageable (or that is completely invalid) while the IRQL was too high. This bug check is usually caused by drivers that have used improper addresses.
