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.)

Hi, I have a 2010 Lenovo Thinkpad Edge Notebook (NSW DET SCHOOL LAPTOP) and it was unlocked by the tech guy at school when I graduated 18 months ago. Worked perfectly fine until a couple of months ago when it just crashed and wont load past the first page. Have tried several hard resets, etc but no luck. I have important documents on the notebook and I need to get it working again as I have to transfer all my school and work documents to my macbook. I received the notebook from my school about 3 years ago, if that and never had any issues until now. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thankyou

1 month old edge 2 1580, keyboard, touchpad/volume/mute/buttons suddenly stop working and the fan works full speed. The touchscreen works. The keyboard types just 1, 6, 2, x, w and q randomly. It doesn't work in BIOS either. The volume and mute buttons do not respond but it does sound if I plug some headphones to the jack port.  I have runned the hardware and device trouble shooter and adviced me to restart. Nothing really changed. Everything looks just right in the Device manadgement tree so I am guessing drivers are fine.

This started happening, like I said, about one month ago. I was never able to catch the number of the errors though as they would always happen at random time and turn my computer off immediately after. I thought I had fixed these by installing windows XP updates, and I was able to play the games that would crash again.

Two days ago, I got a different Blue Screen (Sorry again I'm very bad at catching the numbers ) so I decided to put in the new ram I had gotten recently.

Last night I got a blue screen while I was playing a game, and a blue screen while I was logging back on, I believe one of them was an "irql_not_less_or_equal" error while the other was an 0x0C5 error. I did system restore, and right now it at least allows me to log in and use firefox.

Computer Hardware:
Intel i5 cpu 760 2.8 GHZ
4 GB ram
Radeon HD 6870 Video card
Powered by Corsair 1000w Power supply

First the computer was a present so I really do not know what I am doing. I have researched multiple steps to take in trying to correct BSOD. Some days it runs smooth while others I can get 5 BSOD a day.

Once the BSOD started getting out of hand I ran a DISK error check, a Disk cleanup, then I defraged the computer. I also made sure that all drivers were up to date and I ran a virus scanner.

This helped for around 1 week. Now they are back and as of today I have experienced 4 BSOD. I have attached the past 5 minidump files. Any help would be appreciated.

You actually counted 37 BSOD's in a month? That's about as exciting as watching grass grow :rolleyes: Try resetting the bios to the default settings. If you don't know how to do this, get a friend to help you

For only the past month, I've been having BSODs on my 5 month old self assembled computer. All of which occur during gaming. For the first two BSODs, I thought it was due to my undervolting of the CPU (which had been stable for months), so I reset that to factory settings. Unfortunately, I'm hit with a brand new error this last time (dxgmms1.sys as opposed to whea_uncorrectable_error). I'm at a loss as to what may be the cause and have no experience evaluating dmp files, so I figure the bright people of this forum can lend a brain.

Hi Tonney & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

I have analysed your dump files and below has been provided an analysis of the same for informative purposes :-
SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (3b)
An exception happened while executing a system service routine.

Code:

dxgmms1!VIDMM_GLOBAL::DestroyAllocation+0x43:
fffff800`194ae9a7 493901 cmp qword ptr [r9],rax
fffff800`194ae9aa 7533 jne dxgmms1!VIDMM_GLOBAL::DestroyAllocation+0x7b (fffff800`194ae9df)
fffff800`194ae9ac 4d8911 mov qword ptr [r9],r10
fffff800`194ae9af 488bd6 mov rdx,rsi
fffff800`194ae9b2 488bcd mov rcx,rbp

fffff800`194ae9be 483bfb cmp rdi,rbx


So, the DirectX was destroying the allocations which caused the system to crash.

A:Two BSODs in the last month, unknown causes

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





Quote:
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)
- 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
- Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard!
....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.
It's my opinion that SSD's aren't reliable enough (with current hardware... Read more

Pool_corruption (memory) (probably from a driver) please run these two tests.
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

I mean the machine is basically idle but I can't start Firefox, can't open Performance Monitor (to check if that would provide a clue), can't open Task Manager, etc. Yet other things like Winamp work fine (can start and use program). Sometimes the issue goes away after at least 10-15 minutes but many times I just have to hard reset. I figure it's probably not a hardware issue since some applications work while others don't. Nothing unusual happened a month ago from what I can remember. I tried running Rootkit Revealer 1.71 but that didn't show anything interesting, only false positives like Daemon Tools. The weekly virus scans haven't shown anything strange and I always have Avira Antivirus (free) and Comodo Firewall (both latest versions) running. I did notice though that Comodo has been crash two or three times a week starting a month ago, not sure if that's related, but I submitted those crash reports to Comodo for analysis. I just wanted to post my HijackThis log and see if anyone sees something I'm missing. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hi,

Well the title is pretty self-explanatory. It mostly happens when I leave idle/play CS:GO for a long time.
(e.g. i will play CS in the early afternoon, leave the house while CS is in the menuscreen-or let me lil bro play-, come back late night, have a game, crash)

PS: I must add it's a pretty old device. Had not been used for a few years because of a faulty videocard. Summer of 2013 I put a new VGA on it, some extra RAM, fresh windows 7, and a few months ago I bought a 2ndhand AMD 64 x2 cpu from eBay.)

So that's it. I've been having random BSODs for a month now. I used Bluescreenview and it accused halmacpi.dll and ntkrnlpa.exe to be causing the problem but I couldn't find much information about them on the internet.

I even reinstalled windows but after a while it started BSODing again.

It seems to be video card related cause I read about someone having a similar problem so I uninstalled ATI Catalyst and the BSODs decreased in how often they appear but it hasn't solved the problem.

Could anyone help me with this one?


Tks in advance.

A:Random BSODs for a month, 0x000000a and 0x100008e

Code:
BugCheck A, {c0120098, 2, 1, 82cf648e}

Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiIdentifyPfn+1ed )

Code:
Usual causes: Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility
memory_corruption doesn't necessary mean that a RAM module is faulty, it can also point to a object which corrupted the RAM at the time of the crash, for instance a corrupted driver or program. Paging files and the CPU caches can also be causes.

Follow these steps -

Test for any corrupted drivers, by running Driver Verifier for least 24 hours, stop the test if a BSOD occurs before this time frame. Driver Verifier will place stress on the drivers within your system, which will cause corrupted drivers to crash and hopefully be pinpointed.Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
More Help and Information with Driver Verifier - Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers

Memory:RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Run Memtest86+ for least 7-8 passes, and preferably overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

Hello,

So, I am have been having multiple BSODs from day 0 with my new PC build. I will try to be as thorough as I can to help you help me. I have been lurking and troubleshooting since early February, when my build began. I have clean installed (formatted primary drive every time, formatted secondary drives once) Windows about 3 times now chasing BSODs. I am at my wits end and am calling in for backup (I prefer to figure things out on my own since I then learn from it). My PC serves two roles, Gaming and Virtualization. Ideally, I would be dual booting Windows 10 for light gaming with my son and Debian for work/programming/virtualization.

Home built PC:
Mobo: Asus H170 Pro Gaming
CPU: I7 6700K
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX - 32GB
GPU: Nvidia GTX 970
PSU: Corsair HX850 (old, ~4yrs, did not replace for this build)
Primary HDD: Samsung 850 256GB
Secondaries: Samsung 840 256GB (old, from last system, zeroed before first boot with the new system)
WD Green 2TB (old, from last system, zeroed before first boot with the new system)

In February, I built the PC, installed Win10, setup dual boot with Debian, received several BSODs in Win10s (I do not have these dumps, but they were of the IRQL, memory corruption, --- memory related. So, I ran memtest on my RAM, did 2 passes, came back passed/no issues. I figured I would then get it stable with just Windows 10 before attempting a dual boot system.

I built this computer about a year ago, and I've had BSODs every one or two weeks for just as long. The problem is that I've never been able to tie them to one program, one driver, or one piece of hardware. All of the diagnostics and general health checks I've run on the system and its hardware come out clean.

Usually the BSODs are far enough apart that I forget about them until the next one comes up, but I've had three or four in the last week alone. Virus scanner shows nothing, and the dump reports through BlueScreenView remain unhelpful because all of the drivers involved seem to be essential system drivers and processes. There's got to be something behind all this, but I can't figure out what. Any suggestions?

So this issue started about 3-4 days ago, but I have had problems prior to that, just with much less frequency.

To begin with, here's the parts list for my computer:

Intel Core i7-3770K, Asus GeForce GTX 780, Corsair 500R White - Home build updated - sarevok9's Saved Part List - PCPartPicker

I have tried running a diagnostic (windows and memtest86) on the ram, and it has checked out okay. I have swapped my GFX card to an older, always-working R9-270x. The problem has persisted through these changes as well as a reformat / refresh. It seems like each time I get a blue screen it's a different error. One time if will be PFN list, the next IRQ Not Less or Equal to. This time it was a System_Thread_Exception_Not_Handled. Pre-formatting I also had a lot of "Memory Management" bsod's as well. The seeming root cause always points to ntoskrnl.exe in my blue screen logs.

Attached below are the logs.

I'm going to take an educated guess and assume that these issues stem from my just-barely-out-of-warranty-motherboard.

Typically caused by a bad block in the paging file or disk controller error.

Lets run a chkdsk, and a sfc.
Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.

A- CHKDSK /R /F:

Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt.

Do this for each hard drive on your system.

When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter.

Then reboot and let the test run.

It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors.

See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.

Hi all,

Summary:

Am having a custom-built PC that worked just great for the last 6 months. Then I started getting random issues (BSODs, mouse-keyboard freeze, computer fails to shut-dowm after OS shutting down). For the past two weeks now, the issues are getting more and more frequent. No significant changes were made to the hardware or software. Have run UltimateBootCD scans, removed almost all hardware except bare bones CPU, Mobo, nVidia graphcis card, memory, PS/2 keyboard and mouse, and power supply, plus fresh install of Vista SP1 32 bit/WinXP Pro with/without any third-party drivers. Once a freeze happens, it is a lot faster to happen again even after a fresh reboot. Freeze happens with bootable CD programs also = (that;s why I did not list HDD and DVD drive into the bare bones list above -- if I have one of the two, I can start the system, and issues happen).

Here's the current configuration (see more freezes here than BSODs):
Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 2.4 GHz
Abit Fatal1ty FP-IN9 motherboard. No overclocking.
2 GB RAM (passes UltimateBootCD tests)
EVGA 8500 GT PCI-x graphics card
Antec EarthWatts 650W power supply
Plain old PS/2 keyboard and mouse. USB mouse also has same results.
Vista SP1 32-bit (with and without latest updates). Also tested WinXP SP2 Pro, same issues. Also bootable CDs result in the same issues.

The crashes are related to your Smb 2.0 Server driver. I wonder whether Symantec is the cause. I see it is the antivirus you are using, and server based issues can be due to conflicts with security software. Try contacting Symantec and seeing if they have seen problems related to the Smb 2.0 Server driver before.

Also, there are some hotfixes available through support.microsoft.com related to Smb 2.0 Server driver. I am unable to access any right now to determine which might help because support.microsoft.com seems to be down temporarily. I will try to find the links later after you contact Symantec. You may even want to mention the hotfixes to Symantec to see if they know about them. Maybe they can help you through support to get the hotfixes installed.

I've been having problems with random BSOD's, mostly while playing games. They started around march, this year (as far as I remember). Thing I have done so far:

-formated hard drives twice and reinstalled Windows (zeroed once)
-ran memtest (couple of times with every stick tested solo, around 25 hours of testing altogether with no errors)
-ran chdsk, scannow, hdtune, mhdd boot test, crystaldiskinfo, all with no problems detected
-cleaned whole box with vacuum cleaner and compressed air
-put both GPU and memory sticks out and in
-updated bios, drivers

Computer is 3 years old now, and same problem persisted with next 3 windows instalation ( I did complete hdd format every instalation). There were a lot of errors, most of them related to drivers, but some were just stop errors with some random error codes.

I have a lot of errors in games, I think exceptionally lot since I never had so many errors before. I tried to downgrade my nvidia drivers to 314 but it didn't really help (there is a known problem with nvidia drivers).

I'd be really grateful if you could help me with that problems. It's been bugging me for over half year, with couple of BSODS almost everyday, and I can't afford to buy a new PC.

The most recent system service exception was when I was booting up windows last night. They all seem to happen at random times. I could be browsing the internet or I could step away and come back to find that an error occurred.

To try to debug the Memory Management and Page Fault BSODs, since with my researching I found that a common reason for this is bad memory, I once again ran Windows Memory Diagnostic and found no Hardware errors and I let Memtest 86+ run for 34 hours and found no errors.

If anyone has insight as to why these may be happening, I would greatly appreciate it.

A:Several BSODs in last month-System Service Exception, Memory Mgmt, etc

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (Cx05) probably a driver.
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.I understand you have done memtest already so start with verifier.

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

* If you have a Raid update its Driver.

Memtest.





Quote:
*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5-7 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.



RAM - Test with Memtest86+


Driver Verifier






Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition.
Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is.
But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver.
Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows.
If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so y... Read more

I have been trying to get a TechNet subscription, but you can't activate the subscription without a Windows Live ID, and my attempts to sign up for one have been unsuccessful for quite a while now.

After I fight with the Captcha (usually takes be 10-12 tries to get through it) it asks me to fill out my email to "accept" the TOS, and then it gives me this error code:
LEFKPK~?ITSMQQSQVWTYZ

I've tried about a dozen times over the last 3 weeks, and it keeps happening. I've submitted a trouble ticket, but they haven't gotten back to me. Is there an 800 number I can call to try to get this sorted out?

Thanks,

I have had multiple BSODs this month. Sometimes I get a black screen while starting from hibernation. Log info attached. Recently reinstalled NVIDIA Drivers. Installed RealTek Audio drivers 2 or 3 days ago so I get stereo sound again (no surround!) SFC doesn't find any issues.

I am trying to get into programming industry, I really enjoy programming and I always did well at it. The biggest problem is finding a job or a way into the industry. Most jobs want a different language to what I am strongest at (python). I have also learnt Java and visual basic. I am not sure which direction to go as so many jobs ask for c++ or c# and some Java.

My question is which language should I be focusing on? I am currently looking for open source projects to join in with to add to my experience and CV but it is difficult to decide which one.

I am looking at C++, C# or Java (to learn it better and remind myself how to code it).

Personally I am not looking for web applications or anything like that, but if that opportunity came I would take it. I would love to get into the gaming industry but I hear it is almost impossible. Any job or position where my focus is programming I would be happy.

Major issue while trying to run The Sims 2 Apartment Life. All I was asking it to do is create "blank" neighborhoods so I can start new games with. I was restarting it because it only made the "tutorial" neighborhood and I wanted it to make all the other neighborhoods in my game. Luckily for me I did save backup copies before I deleted the rest of the folder.

But when I attempted to restart the game, it crashed the whole operating system.

Not that it matters, the game itself has SecuROM DRM on board, not that it most likely contributed to the crash...

Yeah, I did get my neighborhoods rebuilt, it's just that it takes freakin' forever to get to the neighborhood selector (as if it was run for the first time).

Fortunately it doesn't appear that I wasn't able to reproduce the steps leading to the crash, so I would assume it would be a temporary problem, but there might have been an issue with a fragmented pagefile. After all, this game hadn't run in my system since last March, so it may be a beast now to start and run in fullscreen and windowed modes.

CHKDSK has been scheduled for the next run (/F switch).

Software Concerns:I would recommend removing the defrag and registry defrag programs; they may damage your file system and/or the Windows files/registry. You also have a Memory cleaning program that is unnecessary and may cause conflicts.Many of us on the forums actually do not recommend automated optimization tools for Windows 7. Windows 7 does a much better job of handling its own optimization than its predecessors did. We especially do not recommend registry cleaning as an "optimization" step because automated registry cleaning causes more harm to the registry than it actually repairs.

In the future, if you need help optimizing Windows 7, please post a thread in Performance & Maintenance - Windows 7 Forums or follow the tutorial enclosed in that forum to Optimize Windows 7.

I personally do not recommend 3rd party defrag tools. I have seen them damage restore points and even cause blue screen crashes. Windows has some nice command line flags for the defrag command that will accomplish the same tasks as 3rd party programs. The -b and -w flags will defrag boot files and the boot registry items as well as compact the data to the center of the disk for faster access.defrag c: -b
defrag -c -v -w
The first command optimizes boot performance for the Windows drive by defragmenting boot files and boot registry items.

The second command includes all drives on the system through the -c command and optimizes the drives by compacting the data to the center of the... Read more

Hello.... I have Vista (duh) sp1. I'd been using my life cam with Live Messenger quite well for a year. Then suddenly 2 weeks ago, the other person can no longer hear me! There is usually 2 pictures on the screen; mine at the bottom, and theirs at the top. There is a sliding button you can slide up or down to turn the volume higher or lower. I can do theirs, but for some reason mine has been disabled, at the lowest setting. I suspect this is the problem.

I upgraded the life cam program, but it made no difference. I can't tell if there's an upgrade for the Live Messenger, or if that would really help. I'm so frustrated that I'm ready to chuck it all out the window and use something else besides live messenger. (ANY SUGGESTIONS??)

If anyone has ever had this experience before, and can help me figure out what in tarnation is going on, I'd really appreciate it. (And so would my folks, who like to see our 4 year old on the camera,,,which is really why we bought them to begin with!)

Thanks.

A:no mic for live messenger/life cam

I'm not sure if I can help but here goes. Can you access your cam settings in your life cam and check the sound settings there. Beyond that, try an unistall and reinstall of life cam software. Now for a better program, Oovoo is the way to go. Go to Oovoo.com and check it out, real user friendly and easy to set up. Once loaded it just takes two clicks and your video chatting. Its really that easy. I use it and I'm a believer.

I am a graduate student in computer science and my budget is around $1000 to $1200. I am looking for an efficient LENOVO laptop for my school and job. Most days I am working simultaneously in dreamviewer, eclips (with android sdk ! I hate to wait to run the android emulator for minutes) , wamp , word, excel, pdfs, have a database open, lots of tabs in my web browser, some video streaming or listening music and maybe editing an image in photoshop. Basically I want a GOOD performance! I want a fast one..that is why I don't care if it is a quad core or dual core. I guess the clockspeed is much more important.

Does anybody have a good reccomendation ? cuz I really need it..

Thank u so much I will appreciate it if you can help me.

Well seeing as how you want to go with Lenovo, my suggestion based on the fact you want to do lots of things graphical and such that you will need a decent enough laptop. In this case, here is my recommendation based on your budget.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834313584

Its got Dual GPU graphics for when you need that horsepower, a good CPU (Haswell i7), and plenty of HDD space (Its a Hybrid Drive so its got decent response time).

Its a good Lenvovo PC and its portable so if your wanting something to carry around, have some decent power, and be made by Lenovo then you not going to do any better at this range.
