Random Bsod's, programs failing to start/crash/bug crash etc

Q: Random Bsod's, programs failing to start/crash/bug crash etc

Had my system for a while. recently upgraded all my drivers due to issues with bsods and crashing ive seen. ran maleware bytes, did scans from my iobit advanced system care.   took apart and blew out my computer. etc etc. done a few things all in the attemtp to try and get my computer back to normal running and have no sucess. i did run a memory diognostic and it says there was some memory issue's but i wasnt sure as to what to do next.
if anyone could help i would be theroughly apreciative.
as for what some of my problems are.
Random blue screen of deaths. with what look's to be rainbow-ish screen tearing right before (video card issue?)
some program fail to start. or while starting Crash/crash while useing them.
some programs that have NEVER had issue's suddenly  become unusable due to above reasons even after sucessfull reinstall's.
another issue though uncommon is Explorer.exe fails to work and needs to restart it's self.

Preferred Solution: Random Bsod's, programs failing to start/crash/bug crash etc

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.)

You need to replace the ram.

About a week ago I got a popup from Norton Internet Security that said "We've detected an intrusion attempt from such and such IP address with the DeepThroat Trojan. This attack was blocked."

I didn't like the way that sounded so I did research on that trojan, but from what I read on the internet it didn't sound like I had it.

I ran scans with:
Norton Anti-Virus
Panda ActiveScan

And all came up clean.

Then some people said AVG was a good anti-virus, so I downloaded that, ran it, it came up clean, and then I deleted it because it slowed my computer down like crazy (constant 100% CPU usage, etc.)

Ever since then, I've been getting weird warnings and weird random program crashes.

I downloaded Firefox 3 the other day and it crashes a LOT. Some of the other programs I run have been randomly crashing, too (stock trading and charting programs).

I decided I was going to do a system restore to a month ago, but when I went into System Restore, ALL MY RESTORE POINTS WERE GONE!! I know I didn't delete them, so I'm wondering if some malware I picked up did.

I use Firefox for browsing 99.9% of the time so I usually feel safe surfing the web.

I'm using WinXP SP2.

edit - I forgot to mention that I came home from the gym the other day and when I got to my computer Firefox had crashed, all my other programs had crashed, and when I restarted Firefox, my computer rebooted. When it rebooted, there was a message from TeaTimer saying th... Read more

A:Browsers crash and stop working until reboot, random programs crash... trojan warning

You know what? Nevermind. It turns out a RAM chip I recently installed had gone bad.

I downloaded memtest86 and some other RAM checking program and burned the ISO files to a CD and booted my computer from them, and it failed a few tests.

I swapped out the RAM and I haven't had a problem since.

So feel free to lock this thread :D

I just started having random crashes on my pc. It would crash within minutes. Everytime would be random programs or bsod. I believe it's the ram as It doesn't do it when I use 1 stick at a time.

I'm using Kingston 12 gig DD3. 3x4gb sticks. I tested each stick for 4 passes in memtest86 and they all passed. This is the link to the datasheet for my ram, And if someone could help explain what settings I would need to put into my bios to get these sticks all going at once without errors would be helpfull


A:Random BSOD and programs crash, Ram settings wrong

Welcome to SevenForums.

Please upload screen shots of Memory tab using CPUz:CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting
Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums
Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Guide to using Memtest86+ - Geeks to Go Forums

The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
If this RAM stick has errors r... Read more

At first I?m from Germany. Sorry for my english and my (maybe confusing) translations of the error reports in Windows!

I have changed some hardware parts in my computer and afterwards I set up Windows Home again. Now I have a lot of difficulties.

Several Programs crash at random. For Example Internet Explorer 7 (I deinstalled it and installed Firefox 3: the same), Nuendo (a Musicstudio program), MEdiaplayer etc.

Always the message: "a problem has occurred and the program has to quit- send data to microsoft..." shows up. Sometimes the programs work fine for 1hour, sometimes for 1 Minute...

Only in CloneDVD a software intern error message shows up. And when I ran the Antivir scan on my system partition the computer restarted.

My system (before I changed the hardware--> and now):

Motherboard: Asus A7N8X Deluxe Revision 2.0 --> still the same
RAM: 1024 MB (PC3200) --> still the same
Graphic card: Nvidia FX5600 --> Nvidia 6600GT
Harddrives: 120GB IDE --> I added a second IDE drive 120GB
optical drives:DVD drive + CD-burner--> new DVD drive + new DVD burner

I have installed the latest nForce2 Driver for my motherboard; Service Pack 3 (now I deinstalled it just to try - no changes), DirectX 9.0c

My question: could this be a hardware error or is a software problem more likely? I don?t know where I should continue to investigate.

Thanks everybody for help!

A:Several programs crash at random

Hi Fragemeister and welcome to TSF !

You didn't upgrade the PSU (power supply) did you ? This is the first thing I'd watch : new video card + additional hard drive = more load on the power supply.

What's the brand and model of your current PSU (look on the sticker on the side of the power supply block) ? Enter the BIOS at startup and report your temps, fan speeds and voltages. Also open the computer case and check that the video card fan spins properly.

See if you have some friend with a good quality 400W+ power supply (preferably from a known brand like Antec, FSP, Corsair, ...) and see if your computer still crashes with the new PSU.

Any error messages when the computer crashes ? Are there any .dmp files in the c:\windows\minidump folder ? If so zip the .dmp files together and attach them to your next post (click on post reply or go advanced to see the manage attachments button). If there's no error message nor dump files it confirms the hardware problem. If changing the power supply didn't solve the problem we'll test your ram and hard drive.

I've always had some crashing here and there but lately, the crashing has been happening a lot more often. it isnt caused by overheating or anything and sometimes even chrome causes a bluescreen. sometimes I feel it is caused by the games themeselves. but it happens on most of the games i play. 7 days to die, Heroes and generals, and now battlefield 4 etc. I've attached the dm log report below. can some one offer any insight as to how to prevent my pc from BSODing constantly?

Sorry to bother you all. I'm normally a do-it-yourselfer when it comes to computer issues.

For several days now, I've had something that causes Firefox and other internet software (IE and other browsers, also scripts that access the internet) to randomly crash. Also, I can no longer run VMWare. (As a side note, I wanted to extract my files from the VMWare virtual disk. A message on ehow.com suggested using PowerISO, but it didn't work because PowerISO doesn't open vdi files. Also, when I installed PowerISO, it put "AVG security toolbar" on my machine without permission and I can't figure out how to remove it. But that's a separate issue.)

Also, sometimes I get an error message that C:\Windows\System32\cryptsp.dll cannot run because it was not designed to run on Windows. I don't have the exact text of the error message. (I print-screened it, but accidentally hit Ctrl-C on something else before I pasted it anywhere.) The next time it occurs I'll try to write it down.

I have gone through the "Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help" process.

Any help which anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Hello!My computer has been acting very strangely for several months now. Many programs that I had been using without any problem now crash upon start up. It started with Skype a couple of months ago, then Windows Live Messenger a bit later, the Mozilla Firefox, and just today both my Google Chrome and Safari browsers no longer work (I don't use IE because I often get this error message: res://C:\Windows\system32\shdoclc.dll/navcancl.htm).

gonna lay all the info down because even the smallest thing might be the problem.

moved my pc from CA to NV for a month business trip. forgot the cord for the power supply so I got one from the back of a monitor.

before I left I upgraded my video card and power supply.. from ATI RADEON to BFG Nvidia GF 7300 GT 512 and a 400w ps.

also before I left i changed my net browser to mozilla firefox 2 and things were still getting through so I went back to explorer+Spyware Doctor with On Guard.

I play online games if it matters and the problems first started playing World of Warcraft.. NEVER had problems with it.. but 2 things happened at different times.. 1st I was playing.. monitor goes black and at the same time a pop in my speakers.. frozen.. monitor green light still on as well as lights on my keyboard and mouse.

updated drivers on everything... even the printer. tried again and same thing happened.

TIME TO HIT THE FORUMS! and as I finish reading and realize I have a different problem my computer is frozen! no mouse no keyboard.. just like someone took a picture and placed it there...

went to pcpitstop.com and got some tools to check the pc.

videocard stability test--good

hard doctor--says im over 50% used and will SLOW system because of fragmented files.

I've got this problem wihch started a few days ago. It seems to occur randomly,though it have happend when i've played games or watched youtube( thats basically what i do all the time). So, while in a game for example, and in Skype with my friends, the screen suddenly start to flash, in some kind of greyish color. My friends on Skype have told me that they hear loud electronics sparks, and then Skype crashes. Most of my program crashes when this occurs, only small programs like speedfan and avira remains. I cant open any new programs, all i get is an error telling me the computer was unable to launch X. I've tried to restore the computer back to a point a month ago ( the problem started just a few days ago as mentioned), but this wont help. I have also scanned for viruses, updated the drivers and also checked if the computer was overheating. If i restart the computer the problem is gone, but usually comes back in a few hours.

Can you provide a BSOD report? Also, I recommend running Memtest overnight. It sounds a lot like RAM issues, particularly on the first stick of RAM on your motherboard, as app/service memory is located at bottom portion of your RAM, whereas Windows/drivers is at upper portion. If you were getting memory issues on upper, it would cause BSODs, not app crashes.

This problem started about a month ago with Windows Live Messenger. Since then i had no problems until last week when my game recording program WeGame began to crash when i start it up. Now today one of my favourite games Counter Strike : Source has started having the same problem.

When starting Windows Live Messenger i am given the Windows Live Messenger has stopped working.. then it closes.
When starting WeGame it usually crashes when i log in, with the same error.
When i start Counter Strike : Source it says Hl2.exe has stopped working and needs to close.

Please someone help me because this is stopping me from using some of the most important programs i use.

I have tried running as an administrator, in compatablility mode, restarting computer, reinstalling all 3 programs, using CCleaner and Windows Cleaner, closing other applications, disabling antivirus, scanning for viruses and many other things.

Any suggestions? Thanks, Ryan.

Hi all

I'm new to these forums and hope someone out there may be able to help?

Here is a brief description of events.

Windows vista started running slow whilst browsing the web. As we had had a similar problem earlier this year. A problem/virus I rectified with rootkill and caused by Antivirus suite (virus). I decided to run the rootkill programme in safe mode and started up the Malware Antivirus software (all in safe mode). The Malware software located 22 infections. These were subsequently cleaned / quarantined. I attempted a normal restart and the system came up with blue screen and crash dump.

Despite attempts in all modes of start up the vista will not boot? Just keeps crash dumping? I've run windows vista start up repair without success. Repair window says:-

Start up repair cannot repair this computer automatically

I've run the repair disk several times and it just keeps coming up the same. If this has been caused by virus/spyware can anyone offer any suggestions?

Thanks in anticipation of anyone?s assistance.

Pool_corruption caused by a driver blbdrive.sys. Blbdrive is a volume (HD) driver from vista and I would rename it blbdrive.bak to prevent it from loading. If that breaks something you can always rename it back

Just in case I would also run a memory test to validate yours

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 would also remove your avast av and replace it with Microsoft security essentials.

So this computer randomly shuts down on me. Out of dozens of crashes, only three threw bsod. Everyone had a different driver as the cause. It would even randomly crash before it hit the windows logo starting up, even if I just left it alone idle.
I had my cousin do a quick look, he switched around the RAM. Did diagnostics on them, every thing seemed to be fine. He said he found errors starting in August involving a service pack (I had crashing there, but I managed to 'fix' that, forget how), then the Garmin (GPS) updater showed an error message the same time it started crashing again.
I had tried to take the Garmin off before sending it to him, but computer kept coming up with error, or did its random crash.
He had had it on for 4 days, playing several youtube videos, even watched movies on it, etc. No crashing, no over heating, had to play a dozen tabs of youtube at once to get it to crash.
I had yahoo mail and Facebook up and it crashed a bit ago. CPU 10% and Ram 47%

Hi guys,

I bought this new computer about 10 days ago and installed Windows 7 64bit on my own. So, the system and the windows-installation are completely new.

I do experience totally random crashes (it seems so at least!). BSOD and then restart. It has happened when watching a video, playing a game, and even surfing on the internet.

Don't know if all this information is relevant and if you need more don't hesitate to ask!

Thank for your help!

By looking at your bugcheck pattern, I suspect that Zone Alarm is the cause.
Remove ZA completely and activated your built-in windows firewall.
If you have trouble uninstall ZA, then use this application:

When troubleshooting, it's better to remove AVG and replace it with MSE.
You may go back to AVG if your windows has stabled.

Update this driver:

Hey guys!

I've been searching for a few weeks now about the issue I'm having with my computer and I haven't found anything that really relates to me so I'm posting here. I've tried a few different programs to test and didn't find anything wrong yet so I'm hoping you could help me find my problem.

Here are the problems I'm experiencing and all the information I've found.
- When I boot, there are a few blue/pink dots on the top left of the screen which last for anywhere between 5seconds to a few minutes. Sometimes the computer stays there and doesn't boot and sometimes they're there for a few seconds then it boots up. This appears right after the bios screen and before the windows loading logo.
- One program randomly freeze and stop responding, then I can't hit ctrl+alt+delete or use anything related with windows explorer and evetually I hard reboot since I can't do anything at all. If I wait enough, it will give me a blue screen.
- A few weeks ago I had a lot of display driver crashes, and sometimes it recovered, sometimes my computer rebooted. I've reinstalled windows now with new drivers and I don't have any driver crashes anymore. I've tried my GPU in another computer and ran furmark a few times without any issues, so I don't think the GPU is the problem.

I'm thinking it may be the RAM or the motherboard?

Im having random BSOD crashes. It randomly occurs when I play BF4 but can also happen when my PC is completely idle! Please help!

A:Random BSOD crash

All but one of these are STOP 0x124 errors. These are usually hardware problems, but can also be caused by other issues.
Here's a copy of the canned speech that describes some of the possibilities:

They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- missing Windows Updates
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers) - and older systems
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

The processor appears to be seriously underclocked! Is this deliberate? If so, why?

MaxSpeed: 3400
CurrentSpeed: 800

This appears to have started on 20 May between 10:30 and 12:00 (from the memory dump times).

The one other error is a security (buffer overrun) error - so please start the diagnostics ( Hardware Diagnostics) and be sure to run at least 2 of the antivirus checks.

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, ple... Read more

Hello Tech Support. I just started having a bit of an issue with these random BSOD crashes. I got two of them yesterday. I use a program called WhoCrashed to determine what the issue is and I got two results.

On Sat 12/8/2012 8:03:15 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntkrnlmp.exe (nt!KeQueryPriorityThread+0x102D)
Bugcheck code: 0x1A (0x41790, 0xFFFFFA80024A95F0, 0xFFFF, 0x0)
Bug check description: This indicates that a severe memory management error occurred.
This might be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

Hey all,
I'm having an issue with my ASUS F5GL laptop. If I try to launch a game like Counter-Strike: Source, Garry's Mod or Just Cause 2, not long after actually leaving the menu and beginning to play (anywhere between 2-5min), the whole laptop just silently crashes. I checked ALL the logs, and there is nothing in there, except something recorded at boot, saying the computer was not cleanly shutdown. When it does crash, a second before it crashes, a weird thin horizontal line appears in a random location on the screen, going all the way across the screen. This was happening under Windows Vista, but I just bought and did a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium, and it's still happening. I have updated my drivers and it still happens.

My month and half old Acer V3 started to give BSOD's, did some sort of recovery and started working again for a couple of hours, if not trying to access any Windows files. If tried to look up error logs etc it gave different versions of the BSOF. So I tried to run Recovery, getting it back to factory settings, and that's when Windows crashed completely. I followed Acer customer support advice, ordered recovery discs (couldn't create one because Windows crashed when trying it. I got the recovery discs, ran the recovery which ended up giving me failure because of "missing image-something". Another call to Acer and they told to run different recovery version from the puter.

That recovery end to a failure again. After several restarts and what not, windows started up again, being slower than usual. I'm now having constant problems losing internet connection, I've had couple minidumbs and several issues with windows updater and such and these after machine should be back in the factory settings. Anyhow, here's the last log if anyone could take a look on it before I throw this machine to the wall.

A:BSOD and total windows crash and recovery crash/failure

For starters:

At work we start all repairs with a set of diagnostics. Often they find problems that weren't even expected. It's a waste of time to try to fix software on a system that has hardware problems.
Please try these free diagnostics for starters: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
Also, please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

In particular, start with the hard drive diagnostics as I suspect that is the problem.

Although there's only 2 memory dumps (it usually takes 4 or 5 to conclude if it's a hardware error or not) - the repeated failure of factory installs makes a hardware failure the most likely problem here. Please run the diagnostics that I suggested above and let us know the results.

There are a list of drivers that need updating (because the recovery media was made a while ago). Don't worry about them until you've finished the hardware diagnostics. If all the diagnostics pass, then update the drivers.

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

Win 8.1 has been crashing randomly. I can't see any triggers at all.

Parts are roughly 1 year-old, ssd is 6 months old. Both CPU and GPU were overclocked, I disabled them but still crashes. Also, crashes did not happen under intensive tasks.

Mostly browsing internet, files, watching youtube stuff. I did install all my drivers using DRIVERBOOSTER, but I ran driver verifier and nothing came up. Also I think if it was drivers, something would have shown up in the event viewer.

I'd like to narrow it down to drivers, software, hardware or OS so I can figure out what is going to be my next step.

Hello all! This is my 1st post in the forums but it comes under bad circumstances.

Ever since I installed Sims 3(and since removed) for my daughter on my PC it has been crashing a lot. Sometimes I'll go to the CPU and that little box saying "windows is recovering from an unexpected shutdown"

Other times I'll be playing a game that I never had problems with before and the screen will turn black with lots of colour lines in it plus a buzzing sound. Then the cpu crashes.

I have checked all my drivers and I believe they are all up to date. I'm tapped out of knowledge at this point and I am not sure where to look next.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

The dump file show a bug check value 0X3b, this is usually a graphic's driver, other possibilities are antivirus/antispyware/security programs, RAM, Hard drive, loose cables.

Let's start with installing a new ATI Graphics driver
1. First un-install the old driver, Download and install Driver Sweeper from:
Guru3D - Driver Sweeper
2. Uninstall 'ATI Catalyst Install Manager' from Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features
Go to Control Panel, View by: Small or Large icons in Device manager. In Device manager select Display Adapters.

3. In Display Adapters right-click on your device and select uninstall. Tick the box that says 'Delete the driver software for this device'

4. Re-Boot into Safe Mode and run Driver Sweeper, to ensure complete removal of items, Run Driver Sweeper as administrator. Right-click Driver Sweeper > properties > Compatibility tab tick 'Run this program as Administrator'.

5. In Driver Sweeper select the ATI- Display only and then Analyse:

6. Now select Clean to remove all ATI software:

7. Re-boot normally and install the newest ATI official drivers.

Then stress test your graphics card, Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Your temps shouldn't go over 90?C.

If you still get crashes, re-install the graphics drivers without Catalyst Control Center.

Hi There,

I have a fairly new PC (approx 12months old) and recently it has been crashing at random times of the day. There is nothing in common with each crash i.e. I am doing different tasks at different times. Basically the PC just turns off and starts booting all over again. There is no BSOD dumps to check and the only thing I see in the event logs before the crash is the Multimedia Class Scheduler Service entering the "stopped" state. This happens many times throughout the day so I am sceptical as to blaming the issue on this windows service.

My setup is as follows:

- Intel DQ67SW Motherboard
- Intel i5-2400 CPU
- Windows 7 Pro SP1 32-bit fully patched

This problem occurred right after purchasing the PC and because i have a good relationship with my supplier, they swapped out the power supply and motherboard to be sure. The problem went away for about 12 months but has now returned.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Attached is the output from SF_diagnostic_Tool.exe.

FIXED: Connection cable wasn't properly attached anymore

hi everyone,

A couple of weeks ago i have bought a Nvidia 570gtx grafics card together with an extra 4Gb of RAM. At that point i decided to finaly upgrade my Windows Vista to Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Since that day i started to get a BSOD like once a day. The BSOD probably had to due with the Nvidia drivers, cause since the new ones came out i haven't had a BSOD for over a week now. But since a couple of days my system just crashes without a BSOD.
What happens:
I'm playing a game or watching a movie, then suddenly my screen and sounds just freezes and after about 5 seconds my screen goes black and i hear the little beep your pc makes when it starts, resulting in a restart of my system. Then Windows gives me the start normaly, safe mode, safe mode and network options...

I have to mention that since adding my new GPU i get a CPU-FAN error on startup, but i have checked it and the cable is correctly installed. I have also tried monitoring my temps of the computer troughout gaming and normal use and it seems pretty low.
For my CPU i'm using a closed circuit water cooling. I have the cooler that is attached on the radiator connected to my CPU-FAN on the motherboard. I also have a second fan attached to the other side of the radiator.

I think my new GPU is causing these crashes.
I have attached a zip file with the BSOD Dump & System File Collection, System Health Report and DxDiag.

I'm folowing IT at s... Read more

Hi. I've recently been trying to play Metal Gear Solid 5 but every time I boot it up my PC either crashes as soon as the splash screens are done or after a few minutes. It's been crashing while playing other games as well but it's been much rarer. It's not a BSOD crash and it doesn't produce any crash dumps so I'm leaning towards it being a problem with either the PSU, the motherboard or one of the graphics cards. Any help with finding the cause of this would be appreciated.
The PSU model is fd-psu-newt2-800, the graphics cards are both Nvidia GTX760s and the motherboard is a ASUS Sabertooth Z77
