Display freezes, BSODs and random system crashes

Q: Display freezes, BSODs and random system crashes

My computer has been crashing a lot lately. Usually, the computer freezes and weird lines appear on the display when it happens. Other times it just shows a BSOD and restarts. It started happening around 2-3 weeks after my motherboard, processor and RAM were changed because a part of the previous motherboard had burnt. The previous motherboard was ASUS M3A78-EM, the onboard graphics was ATI Radeon HD 3200 and RAM was 2 GB DDR2.

I took the PC to a my computer vendor after everything I tried had failed. Firstly, he diagnosed it as an issue because of improper earthing/grounding in the switchboard where I plugged the computer and the UPS. I got the earthing issue sorted but to no avail, it still hanged/freezed. The second time I took it to him he said that he might have to update the BIOS and when I brought it back the problem had apparently been fixed but that was only for a few days. After like 4-5 days it started happening again. Same weird lines - green, magenta, purple and all the rest of it - started appearing. The HDD LED stops when this happens. I only observed the LED today, though. Today the computer freezed without those weird lines on two out of the 5 or 6 times it happenrd, it looked like it had just hanged but the HDD LED had gone off.

Sometimes the PC doesn't start up at all immediately after it has crashed. That's what led me to guess it's a hardware issue. Also, it happens in safe mode and Windows XP too (I dual boot Windows XP and Windows 7) and I remember it once happening even before the computer had completely booted.

Also, I at times the computer switches on but it doesn't boot. The power light on the cabinet lights up and some noise can be heard but nothing else suggests that it is switched on (display and keyboard are both inactive).
Another thing, when the computer is switched on (ever since I started having this problem) a scratching like sound can be heard lasting only 1 or 2 seconds.

Computer details:
Windows 7 32-bit
ASUS M4A78LT-M-LE
AMD Athlon II X2 250
ATI Radeon 3000 onboard graphics
1 x 2 GB DDR3 RAM
250 GB SATA

Please help me fix this problem. I have had this for like 2 months now and it's getting between me and my work.

P.S.: I have tried reinstalling Windows 7 but it didn't work. So I guess this is almost certainly a hardware problem. Please move the thread to hardware section if required.

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.

My system specs are:

AMD Athlon XP 2000+ 1.6Ghz
Nvidia Geforce 7300GT with 512MB onboard RAM
1gb DDR RAM
Fully updated XP Home SP2

Thanks for looking

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..

Hi all, I'm at the end of my patience with my machine here. I'm hoping these forums are the salvation. So thank-you in advance!

Windows 7 , x64, OEM, original install from factory, 2 year old hardware and OS install.

My Dell XPS 8000 used to work perfectly. Then 6 months after purchase the first weirdness started happening, spread over a long time. Then it got worse, and since last Spring it has been a gradual descent into PC Hell. I am at the point where 3 reboots a day is pretty much normal. It's also starting to have more trouble booting.

Symptoms, in order of first appearance: (may not all be related to root cause)
- Weird problem with internet connection. Works fine after a fresh boot, but then after a while I might start seeing scrambled images on web pages. Then, browser will ask to download page instead of just showing it, then it will freeze altogether. What browser you ask? It doesn't matter: when problems start, they are all affected (Chrome, Firefox, IE9). A reboot puts things back to normal.
- sound card started occasionally making shrieking distorted sound instead of normal sound.
- I put my computer to "sleep" every night. Sometimes I wake up and it is awake, or it has rebooted itself.
- A lot of times it freezes or reboots itself soon after I wake it up, or perhaps it freezes at the login prompt while I am not paying attention to it. For a few days it crashed at 8:30 sharp each morning, even though I wasn't near it and it was just the ... Read more

A:Random BSODs, freezes, crashes, failed boots and more fun problems

about half of these were releated to a graphics driver reset

"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 Let us know if you need help STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

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.

Prior, original configuration (more BSODs than freezes)

Hello,
So recently i bought a new PC and im having problems with video while playing games. Everything happens randomly:

- most often monitor display is turning off with audio still being played properly (got to reboot pc)
- second to that freezes happen (got to reboot pc)
- rarely "Display driver has stopped working" error pops up (no need to reboot pc)
- freezes for few seconds and then everything is back to normal
- few times little window popped up on the screen saying "Signal frequency out of range. Please change signal timing. etc"

I noticed that i have more chances of experiencing 1 of the above just after reboot from previous crash and starting a game.

Okay, now to the part what i have done sofar.

Already tried a dozen of different Catalyst drivers, previously removing old ones with Driver Sweeper. Overdrive is turned off and i didnt touch any clock. Default setup.

I tried PSU and GPU on another PC for 3-4 hours - no problems, but it doesnt say much anyway. I can play single game for few hours on my PC without any problem as well, then few in a row may happen.

Some of the problems directly imply that refreshing rate can be wrong and GPU is overheating. Note that i have CRT screen with DVI-VGA adapter and refreshing rate is set to 85Hz (already tried multiple ones in the range of 50-115) with resolution set to 1024-768 ingame/desktop, nothing helps.

A:XFX Radeon HD6770 - random freezes / display problems / crashes

Hi and welcome.
I have a Gigae Byte silent HD 6770 and my temps are 47.5C, 47.5C and 51C at idle. Similar to yours. Download Download TechPowerUp GPU-Z v0.6.5 | techPowerUp and run it whilst gaming and set the options to log to a file and show maximum temperatures. This will show you if it is overheating. Do you have plenty of cooling in your case? I suspect you need to keep the VGA temps card below 80C maximum. Mine don't really go much over 77 to 77C.

Hello,

Since the past month,ever since I reinstalled Windows on my PC (I reinstalled it because I couldn't get past the bootup animation),it's been going haywire!My PC gets BSODs at random intervals each time with a different code .

Also, I would like to add that my PC stopped booting up after I had to force shut it down (PC wasn't responding ) .But earlier than that the PC was in perfect working order.

The BSODs and freezes had seemed to have stopped when I used chkdsk c:/ command once. But suddenly, after 3-5 days my PC has started to freeze and get bsods again (today).
I have attached the file from the log collector
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi,I am currently in possession of my brother's laptop which has be having difficulties for the last several months. The problems began when he had one of those false security infections that try to get you to download software promising to eliminate the "infection".

However, he then developed problems where system speed would grind to a halt and totally freeze, seemingly randomly.He then gave the laptop to me so that i could try to fix it. I've had difficulty completing antivirus and antimalware scans (adaware, malwarebytes, spybot) because of system instability and the freezes, along with CPU usage at 100% for extended periods of time (hours).

Hi everyone. New to this forum and hope I have posted this in the right place.

I built a computer from scratch for the first time about a month ago, and it has been exceedingly unreliable since I first began to use it. Often I can use it for hours with no problems (I'm typing this on it now) before it crashes, more rarely it'll crash or freeze after just a few minutes. When it's working, it's extremely quick, as it should be for a high spec gaming PC. There is no hint of slowdown or poor performance other than complete crashes. Since I first built it, it's never gone an entire day without a crash. Typically it will crash 4-5 times if I attempt to use it all day.

The nature of the crashes are baffling to me as it's not the same error each time. I get:
- BSOD's leading to an automatic restart.
- The monitor goes black and on standby. However, the computer continues to run, and all the fans on all the components continue to spin.
- Computer completely freezes, the display looks normal but nothing will respond, windows clearly frozen rather than keyboard / mouse issues as the clock stops updating
- The monitor suddenly displays jagged, chaotic lines across the entire screen , forcing a hard restart.

The crashes don't seem to pertain to a particular activity. I am a gamer and have had long sessions on games like Skyrim, Borderlands and The Witcher smoothly with no problems. The system has crashed while gaming, but more often it happens wh... Read more

How interesting. Immediately after posting this thread, I experienced a new error.

I was browsing the internet on chrome and had a couple of notepad documents open, as well as a few windows explorer windows. Chrome completely shuts down with no warning, and the start menu disappears. Only the two notepad documents remain. I close them, and am greeted with a completely blank desktop without a taskbar at the bottom or any icons on the desktop at all. I tried to ctrl + alt + del and an error message pops up, something about it not being able to open the task manager.

I would have copied out the entire message (am on my laptop now) but shortly afterwards, the horizontal, chaotic lines across the screen that I mentioned in my first post happened.

This has never happened before and seemingly makes the problem even harder to narrow down.

Hi folks,

Thought I may need to start a new thread, I noticed other threads have similar issues to what I'm seeing and didn't want to confuse by re-posting in the same thread.

I have Windows 7 Enterprise and just started having many random windows blue screens. I think it started as soon as I tried to run a trainer for a game Company of Heroes, since McAfee said it was a trojan and I tried to restore it after seeing online by other folks that the file was legit.

Anyway, since then I think, i started to see many BSoDs, not always the same BSoD message and they would occur during normal windows usage, a few times in Safe mode with networking. But most of the time, usually within 5 to 30min of running normally.

Anyways, I ran the McAfee virusscan and it found a few viruses, also ran spybot and malware bytes, and Stinger. I ran them from safe mode and was able to clean out the affected files.

I still see fewer BSoDs, but mainly now my google chrome browser won't work. I've tried uninstall/reinstall and every time I load it, it never works. sometimes freezes and I have to do a hard power off/on on my laptop. I have a lenovo w510.

Hello.
Ive been experiencing a number of different crashes, freezes and BSOD's and im not entirely sure of the cause.
Examples of BSODs ive encountered: Interrupt_Exception_Not_Handled, Page_Fault_In_Nonpaged_Area, Kmode_Exception_Not_Handled, System_Service_Exception, Dpc_Watchdog_Violation, Kernel_Security_Check_Failure. Probably many more.
Nvidia graphic drivers are up to date and i always do a 'Clean Install' through custom installation. Windows is up to date.
Ive run Windows memory diagnostic with no errors, and antimalwarebyte with no objects found.
It only happens when i play games (as far as i can recall), notably titels that frequently crashes or BSODs: Overwatch, Fractured Space, Heroes of the Storm and Battlefield 1.
The thing is in Overwatch, for an example, it doesnt seem to matter which video settings my game is at, it can be low or ultra, but if i uncap my fps through the options menu its basically a guaranteed crash within 10min, even though im at 160+ fps and gpu temp around 65 celsius. CPU temp also seem to be stable around 50-60. Capping fps at 60 does help but i do still sometimes experience crashes and BSODs too.
Anyone mind taking a look and see if they can figure out where my problems at?
Thank you.

I recently built a new desktop PC running a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit retail version (see my system specs). All hardware was purchased new, and all software installed were fresh installs. All Windows Updates were applied successfully, including SP1. I have also updated all drivers using manufacturer supplied drivers online as well as through Windows Update. BIOS is flashed to latest manufacturer version, and RAM timings were tightened to rated specs (default 9-9-9-24 at 1.5V, rated for 7-7-7-21 at 1.5V).

After using my system for a day or two, I started getting frequent Firefox application crashes (several times a day). These manifested themselves by abruptly exiting out of Firefox and bringing up the Crash Report manager; no freezing up or unresponsiveness of any sort was involved. I am using Firefox 4 with no third-party add-ons except for AdBlock Plus. I also received several BSOD's (three, I believe), one of which is MEMORY_MANAGEMENT (0x1A). The BSOD's occurred randomly while browsing or doing other tasks, and did not appear to be triggered by any given event. My uTorrent application also crashed once not long after a Firefox crash, but this was a one-time event.

Hi. I recently built a computer.
PARTS:
Intel Core i7 Sandy Bridge 2600k (1155)
Corsair 650W Power Supply
MSI P67a-gd65 (B3) Motherboard (DDR3) (1155)
Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT Videocard
Western Digital Caviar Black 640gb HDD 6.0gb/s
Cisco WMP600N PCI Wireless N PCI Adapter

2x2gb RAM Mushkin DDR3 (1600)
Antec 901 Case (Not that it mattters)
I got all of the parts and assembled them maybe 3 weeks ago. After using it successfully for about or less than a day, I started getting blue screens such as PFN_LIST CORRUPT, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, and some other things that I can't remember. Anyways, upon seeing this I began to try to root out what the problem was. First, I did a memory test on my BIOS and I also used memtestx86. Both of them came out clean. I also tried LinX stress test, and my cpu passed. I tried my old hard drive and the blue-screens persisted. I tried another video card (even though my 9800GT was working on my computer before this one) and the blue screens STILL persisted. I called MSI and they told me to send in my motherboard and that they would send me a new one. I did that, and I got my new one two days ago.

Yesterday my computer was working fine (after I reassembled it all), and I was quite happy. I did a few restarts for updates and it was still OK. I left it on overnight and woke up to see that it was still fine (and that it had finished all of my downloads). However, later today, after re... Read more

Well I'm posting here because my system seems to be plagued with a problem I can't figure out on my own. Been having trouble with games and applications randomly closing out or crashing with an occasional blue screen thrown into the mix. I recently replaced the hardrive after a malfunction so the OS install is pretty fresh. Most of the parts in my system are about 2+ years old except the graphics card which is about a year old and a brand new sound card. I've tried to run memtest86+ before to see if my memory was bad but maybe I didn't test long enough or do it right. I ran each chip for 3-4 passes with no errors.

Anyway I've attached the BSOD file with the perfmon report, I'm curious to see what you guys make of it.

Hello everyone,
This is my firs time posting something here. I have tried some other forum in order to find a solution or solutionS to my problems.

I installed my sql server 2013 and immidiately after the installation my computer's fan started to stay on more and my RAM was occupied more (about 25%) (I have 12 GB of RAM on my pc). Then the random crashes started. Crashes happened even when I was only working on Google chrome or Internet Explorer.

I googled a little bit and found out that something happens and memory starts to fill with scripts and it just adds up and it causes crashes. So I started task manager and ended the proccess of "mysql" and "sqlwriter" which gave me a little more time before a crash.

So I decided to reinstall windows. I reinstalled windows 7 Home Premium and the problem still exists. I have gotten three different blue screens. Here are links to photos I have taken from my screen:

I did a complete rehaul of my PC about 4 months ago and I've been experiencing all types of BSOD's and random system crashes. The crashes are usually a lockup that results in my audio replaying like a broken record and occasionally a completely random restart (without BSOD). The crashes do not occur just when I play games.

A few weeks back, when I'd boot up Windows, it would find new Hardware (PCI Device). I tried reinstalling Mobo Drivers and it fixed the problem but it actually increased the frequency of the BSODs and crashes. I also had problems updating my BIOS when I originally installed my mobo. It wouldn't allow my PC to boot into Windows unless I used the default BIOs.

Here are the errors I find in event manager (starting from most recent):

I'm so tired. For the past two years or so I've just had BSODs at random intervals in my day. Whether I'm playing a video game with my friends or by myself, whether I'm watching YouTube videos, browsing the internet or hell, sometimes waiting for my computer to get to its initial password screen, these BSODs happen. There seems to be no pattern with them either. Just two weeks ago, I didn't have a crash for a whopping 10 days, and just 5 -10 minutes ago I did! I also would like to mention that I leave my computer on sleep mode during the night and did so every one of these 10 days, and the ones before them. What caused me to get the crashes again? Well, I restarted my computer and after that point, I've been once again getting these BSODs.
Some examples of BSODs I've gotten:
SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (have gotten this one the most)
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT

1. As mentioned, I leave my computer on sleep mode during the night.
2. My motherboard has a broken Ethernet port that was broken since I first built my computer back in November in 2013.

Sounds like it could be a hardware isssue. Before going there best to rule out drivers.
Driver Verifier
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- 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"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. ... Read more

I am not sure what the issue is, it is extremely frustrating when I can't figure out what the issue is. I have been getting crashed for a week or so now. It started while during a game, my screen would just go white and audio would get all distorted. I thought my issue was my graphics card drivers, which I rolled back to no avail. So, I reinstalled windows. I didn't even get the drivers installed before windows got a BSOD while doing 93 windows updates. After it rebooted and reverted all those changes, I now get random game crashes all the time, which has corrupted a few game saves. I refuse to play any more games until I have this figured out. I have also cleared CMOS and stuff. Here are my specs:

i5 3570k overclocked to 4.4 GHz
EVGA 660 Ti
Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WB
A few HDDs and an SSD
I think I will try to boot over to OS X or Ubuntu and see how my stability is there.
Then I guess I will try to remove my 660 Ti and see if the drivers were the problem.

For the past month, my computer has been experiencing random crashes (illegal operation, etc), BSODs and the occasional freeze requiring a hard reboot while playing games. I have tried just about everything I can think of to remedy this problem and nothing seems to help. I've updated drivers for everything in my system that can be updated, run anti-virus scans, defragged, scandisked, scanned for spyware etc, all to no avail. It's starting to get a little ridiculous.

The most unusual aspect of this problem is when the crashes/freezes/bsods occur. Sometimes they don't happen for an entire day. Other times they occur every few minutes. Most often once a particular game has crashed once or twice, it runs stable for the rest of the evening with no hitches. Switching to a new game may or may not result in a fresh round of crashes. This seems to also be linked with how long the computer has been powered up. After a BSOD or freeze, when the computer is rebooted it's much more likely that another issue will appear within a few minutes of launching a game. If I'm lucky and all that happens is a crash, I can usually restart that game and play for hours without a problem, only to have the same thing occur the next time I reboot or switch to something else.

I can't recall installing or changing any software or drivers before this began happening -- it just seemed to come completely out of nowhere. I've since tried mucking around with drivers and settings since then, howev... Read more

Before tackling this problem, I would like to see you talk about the brand name, watts, and listed amps on each rail for your power supply.

Also, would love to see both at-rest and under-stress temperatures for your unit.

The last thing before we get started would be to know what the voltage outputs are on each rail when the computer is running.

Hello. I've built a computer about 3 weeks ago. So it's brand new. Specs: GTX 680, i5-2500k, 8GB 1600 MHz RAM, P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3, 500GB 64MB cache Western Digital @ 7200 RPM, 22" 1080p monitor, TX850 power supply, 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium SP1.

It started with my first game, Crysis 2. The game would crash, and I'd have to Alt+Tab out of it. Windows detects an error with Crysis 2, and has to shut it down. I also once got a PFN list corrupt blue screen. After patch was installed, the game would crash straight after loading and the only way to play is to start a new game.

Then I played Metro 2033, but I got no error with that. Phew.

Then I started Far Cry 2. Same problem, like in Crysis 2. Crashes, and probably one or two corrupted PFN.

Then I skipped straight to Battlefield 3. A few crashes, PFN list corrupts. Also, I got a video card manager BSOD (Nvidia Control Panel?), and just now, a 1000007e ('check for adequate hard disk space...'). Don't worry, I've more than 400GB left. Also, I don't believe I've had any random HDD erasing.

I checked my RAM via the standard Windows RAM check, gave out no error. I've ran a driver verifier, got a BSOD on start, but got rid of the faulty driver (Daemon Tools) - I didn't check Windows drivers - but that didn't solve anything. I've reinstalled my Nvidia drivers, leaving out stuff like HD Audio and 3D vision (neither of which I use).

I'm getting varying bluescreens and sometimes even crashes at random times. When these crashes occur, my screen just goes black and Windows starts normally as if nothing had happened, without leaving a dump file, whereas the bluescreens always leave one behind.

Your UEFI/BIOS dates from 2010. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the UEFI/BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard. If possible, use the "inside Windows" flash mechanism (if your OEM provides one) - that is much more forgiving than the traditional (floppy drive) flash method.

Hi there.
My PC is more than 3 years old and it never gave me much problem. A month ago I started experiencing random application crashes to desktop and BSODs while using Windows XP Home. Most of the BSODs were the infamous PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, but I also found some
KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, some SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED and even a MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS. Since most of the crashes happened while I was playing games, I first blamed my video card. I updated its driver (Omega 5.10) but nothing changed. Crashes, BSODs, crashed, BSODs. Then I tried almost everything: I updates every driver on my system, I checked my RAM with MemTest86 (for 9 hours!), I made a surface scan of my hard disks, I ran every diagnostic and benchmarking tool existing on Earth, I removed components which could have caused problems (like a very old CD-ROM player), I even reinstalled Windows. Nothing. Always games crashing to desktop, always BSODs in the most unpredictable circumstances (even while I was writing this post). I made some (very) rough analysis through WinDbg and I tried to narrow my search for the cause of the instability to:
- faulty video card
- faulty mobo
- faulty RAM (strange, since MemTest didn't show any error, but possible)

I've attached some minidumps so (hopefully!) some of you can have a look at them and help me solving this situation.

A:Random crashes and BSODs on XP Home

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Some of your minidumps are crashing with a hardware problem..

Try running with just one stick of ram in your system. If the crashes continue, try the other stick of ram. Also try using different dimm slots. Some faulty ram can pass Memtest.

Make sure your system is not overclocked. Check to see if your psu is providing enough power for your system.

No doubt as you are aware. Diagnosing a hardware problem can be very difficult.

RELEVANCY SCORE 63.6

Hi there,

I just recently built a brand new computer with a help of a friend who has built many before. But for some reason I keep on getting BSOD randomly even when not playing games. Games like Starcraft II and League of Legends crashes in the middle of the game. At first we thought it was the harddrive but after exchanging it for another one, the same problems persist.

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500k
Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V LX
Ram Speed, size and #sticks: Kingston 8.0GB DDR3 - 1600 CL9 240, 2
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti
PSU: Eagle/VoltasX ET-PSVTX600E-Bk / 600Watt ATX12V Power Suppy
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

All drivers are up-to-date according to Driver Checker. Everything is brand new so there is no dust and I can't figure out what the problem is. The game would crash and pop up an error asking whether or not I should send in the error. I'm new to this site so I hope I posted up the Mini Dump correctly.
 

A:Random BSODs and crashes during games

Driver checker is useless... Go here and update the video cards driver:

I have the same card and there was a driver update today...

Hello everyone. I have recently been receiving constant freezes (hard freezes, can't do anything, computer is still running but Gpu fans stop, monitor freezes, controls lock up, etc.) and BSoDs. To add some backstory, this just randomly started happening about 4 months after I made this build (I made it around Christmas, and this is the first time it ever froze or blue screened.) The freezes seem to occur after a few hours of gaming, but never while I'm gaming (meaning it freezes when I go take a bathroom break or am not doing anything that requires a lot of work from the computer,) and the BSoDs occur following the freeze, and every time until I give up. The blue screens have no rhyme or reason, either. It seems every time it blue screens, it gives me a different reason. The most common reasons, however, are 'IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL,' 'SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION,' and 'BAD_POOL_CALLER.' Does anybody have any idea what it could be? I would provide a dump file, but my computer doesn't work for long enough to navigate to it and attach it to this post (I'm submitting this on my iPad.) My specs are:

ASUS M5A99FX rev 2.0
MSI GeForce GTX 980
AMD FX 9370 8 core 4.4ghz
2x8 DDR3 G.Skill TridentX @ 1866mhz
Standard 1tb HDD
Kingston HyperX SSD 256gb
Thermaltake 750w psu

Please let me know if I can provide anymore information. Keep in mind, I can only have the computer running for about 1-3 minutes before it freezes or blue screens.

I should also mention I have tried reinstal... Read more

Hello,

I get a BSODs randomly a couple times a week and freezes mostly while watching videos with VLC or KMplayer.
The first time happened after I changed settings like no mouse shadow etc to make it run faster which I undid later on and haven't changed since.

I've attached the diagnostics files, I would be very grateful if you helped me find out what the problem is.

Hello, about a month after constructing my new pc I started getting a lot of freezes (about once every 2 days) and 2 BSODs in a span of 2 months. I'm not sure if the BSOD related forum is the right place to post, but I did have those 2 BSODs which may contain some useful information. I have a feeling it's a hardware related issue because my pc still freezes even in Ubuntu.

Here's what I've done trying to figure out why it freezes:
Ran stress tests for GPU, CPU on both Ubuntu and Windows 8.1 (survived them), memtest86 on ubuntu for 8+ hours, survived as well;Bought a new PSU replacing my 1 month old one (Enermax Revolution XT 730W replaced into Corsair RMx 550W);Used Ubuntu instead of Windows;Used iGPU instead of main GPU (crash on both).Ran SpeedFan tests on all HDDs; no errors.

System specs:
MSI Z170A Tomahawk;MSI R9 390;i5 6600k with be quiet! Shadow Rock LP cooler;Corsair RMx 550W;DDR4 Crucial 8GB 2133MHz.

So we're left with OS, PSU, GPU, HDDs being crossed out. I suspect it's the mobo or the cpu, or something extremely unlucky like a piece of dust or something somewhere shorting everything out from time to time. (unlikely since the system was only 1 month old back then)

I have a Sony VAIO laptop, model SVE14A290X, which had Windows 8.1 installed on it. I waited until late December 2015 to upgrade to Windows 10, and followed all of the instructions and driver downloads given on the Sony website.But since then I've been having regular freezes and BSODs, once or twice a day, sometimes more, with varying error messages.I took my computer to the local Microsoft store and they said I needed to do a clean install, which they said would solve my problems. So they did that for me, but since then I've been having the same problems, with the same kinds of error messages. Any help you can give would be much appreciated. I have followed your instructions and attached the zip file. Thank you.

Hi scarmstrong,

Welcome to the 10forums.

In case you are using both your graphics cards, please configure your system to use only 1 graphics card while troubleshooting.
Using both graphics cards (switching) could sometimes causes problems.

Please uninstall everything of AMD using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Windows Update. Be sure to ONLY install the display drivers using custom/advanced options.

hi, Recently in the past week or so I have been experiencing random freezes that require me to hard restart the computer. Most of the time it is a complete freeze (no BSOD) but sometimes it is a BSOD.

I have tried doing a memTest (with MemTest86+) to see if one of my RAM sticks was bad, but after a 2 hour test no errors were found. I also did a system stability test called CPUstability, and ran it for 10 hours with no crashes. Finally today I resorted to a full HDD reformat with a clean install of windows, and after I finished installing all of my drivers the problem still persists but with more BSODS than freezes.

I have linked multiple 'error reports' using SF Diag Tool v4. If you need any additional info I'll be glad to post anything else you need (I'll just be sitting here hitting f5 while my steam games download). Thanks for reading -SawedOn

EDIT: So I got a new error, Windows closed all my open windows and said that there was a critical error and that my computer would be restarted in 1 minute.

EDIT2: I included a zip with dumps from the jcgriff2 BSOD tool.

I've been having random BSODs and freezes since I can remember using my now pretty old computer (around 7 years). Never found the cause since BSOD stop errors were random. There are some repetitive stop errors but it's not always the same one, so I wasn't actually ever able to completely solve the problem.

The crazy thing is that sometimes these BSODs happen without me making any software or hardware modifications at all. There will be a period of time that everything works totally fine, then a period of a few days/weeks when I get random BSODs. Although I have to say that these BSODs almost NEVER happen after the computer has been turned on for a while (most of the time they happen in the first 30 minutes after turning the computer on) and almost never more that 2 or 3 (I'd say 3 was max) "per day". The most common occurrence is 1 BSOD though.

I have attached the log files and would really appreciate if someone is able to help in any way. It's quite annoying having these random BSODs/freezes.

Recently I've started getting random freezes too. It doesn't go to the BSOD screen it just freezes my picture on the screen and the sound goes all berserk (making a constant buzzing glitchy sound). All I can do is hard reset the computer.

Another thing worth mentioning is, that sometimes after resetting the computer from BSOD or a freeze, when the first BIOS screen shows up it sometimes freezes doing the initial check-ups on the "initializing USB controllers" (li... Read more

Hello, new forum member here, hoping one of you good folks can help me with my ongoing problem.

I bought a custom built computer 4-5 months ago and it seems like at random I am getting BSOD's and freezes. Now, I've been putting this off for quite a while, but now it is getting very frustrating to say the least. The message on the BSOD is usually "system service exception", but sometimes it says something else. Another problem I have is the random freezes. I have to do a hard reboot to turn it back on. This was happening both when I had Vista and now that I have Windows 7. I have checked for viruses with Avast and my system is clean.

My specs are :

AMD X3 720 2.8GHZ overclocked to 3.4
Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3 motherboard
4GB ram
650w power supply
Radeon 4870 video card

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi


My system has been playing up for a while now. I changed most of my hardware, except for one storage drive and GFX card, less than a year ago due to similar problems. Though I knew that the motherboard then was
becoming defective. Of course, when it was rebuilt I installed all the newest drivers only.
However, the problems have started again recently.
I have run CHKDSK, Memory diagnostics. Updated BIOS and most drivers.

The freezes (often with loud noise from the speakers) happen at random; sometimes the system will run for a couple of days, sometimes it will Crash/freeze/BSOD several times in a given day.
Also happens when just listening to music, browsing the web or watching a series/film.

Hope you guys can help.

Welcome to SF kjartanovich .

A single dump is not enough to establish a pattern so if you have more please upload the rest.
Please manually check the minidump folder.

If dump files are present in that folder copy them to the Desktop, zip and upload in your next post.

The dump that was uploaded does reflect your description of the problem
with regards of using the GPU and Ethernet.

I have to write this AGAIN so I'll just shorten it: had W8, W7 twice and W10, all of them with BSODs and freezes.
ZIP is here XERASER-I5-Sat_12_12_2015_164532_57.zip (2 months with Win 8, one year with the first w7 install and one year with the second, using w10 since day one)

BSODs used to be very frequent on W8 and my first W7 install, somewhat rare on my second W7 install and slightly more common on W10. Freezes started appearing on my second W7 install and carried on to W10 (fresh install, different HDD and install media)

The most common now is WHEA_Uncorrectable_Error, Windows doesn't even want to create a Minidump, it just says it's trying to create it but it never does, rebooting after 1 min.
Freezes are also random but present. It's jusually 1-2, maybe 3 once a week or sometimes I can go two weeks without a freeze, just like I did right now. Had 2 faulty dimms on my W8 and two W7 installs, replaced them with another (unknowingly) faulty pair, sent it back and got a new working RAM Kit. Same for PSUS (WHEA was already a thing on the W7 installs and I went through another two PSUS)

RAM: Good, ran Memtest for an entire day, no errors.
CPU: Good, ran Prime95 for another day, no errors, max temp is 58-59?C.
PSUs: Good, otherwise it'd just shut down like the previous faulty one (not the original one) did.
GPU: Good ? Never had it do anything weird
Motherboard: Uuh.. good? I have no idea honestly, BIOS is up to date and there are no faulty RAM slots.

Hi Xeraser,

I'm extremely sorry for the huge delay.
There aren't many people, we have had a steady stream of new threads for the past few weeks and I was very busy with school.
Unfortunately I didn't respond to your other thread, because I thought you already were receiving help. At least it looked like that because your thread had replies. We usually only reply to new threads that haven't gotten a reply yet, the unanswered thread list.

I've looked at the event logs, there aren't as many bluescreen crashes as I had actually expected and only 1 dump hasn't been created. The bluescreens are too infrequent for a bad installation and hardware problem, unless some device is once in a while connected.
For the dump problem, please make sure your pc is configured for small dump files How to configure minidump | Windows 10 tutorial

For improving system stability,
Please uninstall ASUS AI Suite II, this software is known for causing bluescreens.
Please uninstall Daemon tools, Daemon tools uses some drivers that are very unstable.
Please revert any overclock back to stock if anything is currently overclocked

Please disable fast startup

A:BSODs, random freezes etc

Hey there. I've been getting (seemingly) random restarts of my computer after it's been on for a while, sometimes minutes and some times it won't happen after it's been on for a day. For the last week I've been getting BAD_POOL_ERROR(s), leading me to do a chkdsk which came back clean. Today I took off my case and unplugged everything and put it back in, which didn't seem to fix anything. Today I got another BSOD (of which the dump is attached) and would like some help figuring out what's going on. I've also attatched the results of SF Diagnostics.

I built this computer about a year ago, and have had some problems recently.
Specs:
Gigabyte ga-p55a-ud3
Core i5-650 @ 3.2GHz
ATI Radeon 5770 (powering 2 monitors w/ DVI)
Patriot "Sector 5" RAM (2x4GB)
Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I have had BSODs almost daily for the past week or so, but they're all different. Several hours ago, after leaving it unattended for a few hours, the computer just kind of turned off, but with the system fan and lights still on. My monitors has no signal, and my keyboard didn't do anything, but its light was still on. Maybe there's something wrong with my graphics card? I'm going to try to run a memtest tonight.

I uploaded some minidumps below--these are all of the ones in the past 2 weeks.

Thanks.

A:Random BSODs, crashes, computer slowness

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (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!!!

* If you have 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 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.

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.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you... Read more

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
