So I've been having these random restarts and bsods for a hell of a long time and I just want to get to the end of it. It is probably my motherboard because the northbridge always hits 70-80*C anyways, my other thought would be my ram but who knows, I haven't tested the ram yet though.

Preferred Solution: Having random restarts and bsods for like 3 months

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

Hi,

I've been having a lot of BSODs on my new custom built computer at random times. After the last BSOD, my network card doesn't seem to be working anymore. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Random BSODs for a few months

Run a virus scan with your Anti Virus and then download and run Malwarebytes anti malware.

Malwarebytes | Free Anti-Malware & Internet Security Software



   Warning

Make sure you don't enable the free trial


Can you also run these tests.

Stress test your graphics card with Furmark

I recommend running it for around 30 minutes



   Warning

Furmark will increase the temperature of your GPU rapidly so keep and eye on your temperatures

Memtest86 will test your RAM



   Information

Run Memtest86 for at least 8 passes so we get enough information to confirm that your RAM isn't failing

Run a Disk Check to scan for errors



   Note

Afterwards go into an Elevated Command Prompt (Run as administrator) and type in sfc /scannow
If it finds errors reboot and run the scan two more times

Run SeaTools to see if your HDD or SSD is failing


Code:
BugCheck 24, {1904fb, fffff880072f1868, fffff880072f10c0, fffff80002e92cc4}

Alright guys,

Hope you all can help me sort this out since it's driving me crazy. Back in December of 2011, I overhauled my gaming rig with a new power supply (750W Silverstone Strider Gold), a new CPU (Core 2 Quad Extreme 9650), a new video card (EVGA GTX570 Superclocked), a new audio card (Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty), an additional 2 x 2gb of G.SKILL DDR2 800 Pi RAM for a total of 8gb, and a new Corsair case (not that this should matter). The additional ram was matched with an older 2 x 2gb set of G.SKILL Pi RAM. According to the manufacturer, the only thing that was changed between the two sets was the heat spreader. Additionally, I'm running Vista Ultimate x64.

My machine hummed along awesomely for about 5 months. Then back in May of this year, I started getting random crashes in World of Warcraft and Battlefield 3. At first, I would just crash to the desktop, but then this devolved into total BSOD system crashes. The stop messages include the following: CACHE_MANAGER, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, IRQL_GT_ZERO_AT_SYSTEM_SERVICE, POOL_CORRUPTION_IN_FILE_AREA, INTERRUPT_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED.

A:Random BSODs for the last 4 months

Welcome
First we do not have any current dump reports, the most current is several months old, I do not know what happened to the most current dmp reports.
That being said, if I do not read any of your narrative, my first thought would be that this is a hardware problem. There is an ocassional reference to memory. That is all that your reports indicate.
Now based upon that information and the fact that using 4 sticks you had 1000 errors, I would conclude that this is a memory problem. In fact one failed memtest indicates memory problem and the sticks shold be changed.
My inclination is that your specific problem is that the 4 sticks do not play nicely together, which is often the case when you mix and match and do not buy all the sticks at once. The only thing that I can suggest from your post and the test results is that you test the machine using different ram.
This does not seem to be a problem that will be solved by reinstalling, Vista or any other OS.

I have a HP pavilion a720n desktop. Runs very well for its age and has had no previous issues. Well for months now I have had random freezing that varies. It could have 2-3 times a day or not happen for a couple days or be gone for a week. I also have random restarts. I will be doing something on my computer such as web browsing or watching a video and all the sudden my computer reboots out of nowhere. It usually only does this a couple times a week. I've taken it to several places and they check my hardware check for viruses everything was fine last time they checked and it still hasn't gotten better. I also did a fresh install of XP about 3 months ago and it was fine for maybe.. 3 weeks? I am getting very annoyed with this and I cannot figure it out! If anyone can please help me it would be greatly appreciated! Thank-you!
***Also at any given time it says I have 220-440mb available physical memory out of my 1GB. I'm not sure what that means and the number changes a lot can this have anything to do with it? I don't even have a lot of programs on my computer so why is this number so low?

Hey everybody,
I've been getting system crashes and restarts for the past two months. It seems to be completely random and I never use any programs that are too intensive - at most photoshop. In the first day it happened, it restarted 5 times within half an hour. This was helped by me doing a system restore. Still had the problem but it was around once a day. After talking to HP support a few days ago and doing that the guy told me to do, it got waaay worse and I restored it again. It's still worse than before but slightly better.
Anyway, I have no idea what I should do. Please help!

I really tried to be patient, but man.
It started out as a BSOD every few days or so, but now it's getting more and more frequent.

There's all kinds of BSODs, Kernel data inpage error, page default error, and so on. I've lost count on how many kinds I've went through. I even sent it in for warranty repair once, and it doesn't do anything at all. The trip to the nearest Acer Support Center will take me half a day, and I really just can't take it.

I'm at a loss. I leave it to you guys.

Hello,

I've been getting an increasing number of BSODs recently. I haven't been able to spot any pattern in what triggers them, sometimes it can happen when I am afk with nothing of note running, sometimes when using something more demanding such as games. The error messages I get do not seem to be consistent. Sometimes it points to a driver or file such as ntfs.sys, or other. Sometimes a 'crucial thread' has stopped or it's just an unknown error.

I have run chkdsk and memory tests without finding a problem, but it still persists. I'd much appreciate some help in finding out what is behind it all. I've considered upgrading to Win 10 to see if that solves it, but I don't want to upgrade a broken system just to encounter more problems.

Thanks in advance,
Wightpants.

I’ve been plagued by chronic and unpredictable BSODs since day one of using my Toshiba Satellite P70-A. I’ve found and tried countless solutions; none have worked. Apologies for the length of the case history below, but I’d rather explain as much as I can to avoid confusion later.

The lappy came with Windows 8 when I first bought it online (mint condition). I immediately swapped for Windows 7, then ran SlimDrivers and Windows Update until no new updates were found. Laptop is kept on automatic updates.

For privacy/security reasons, the Windows 7 partition is encrypted with TrueCrypt. Plenty of others have done the same without issue, so I doubt that’s the problem.

Almost at once, the computer began to BSOD on occasion and has continued ever since, despite numerous updates since. The crashes occur at random, at least once every 24 hours of continued operation or so, though often sooner. The error codes listed vary and have included (from memory) “DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL” and “MEMORY_MANAGEMENT”.

Use of Driver Verifier (enabling all checks on all drivers) results in near-instant BSODs during start-up (“A device attempting to corrupt the system has been caught. The faulty driver currently on the kernel stack must be replaced”, error code 0x000000c4). I had to disable Driver Verifier in Safe Mode to get it to stop crashing the system before it could finish loading.

Hello,

I've had on going issues for the last month or 2 that is driving me up a wall.

My computer has been randomly restarting and BSODing. Most of the time it is random restarts.

The machine has 6gb of RAM installed. Most of the time after it restarts or BSODs the initial bios slash screen only shows 4gb instead of 6. To make it show 6gb again I would either take out the 3rd DIMM and put it back in or lightly push on each DIMM. After doing that it would show 6gb again. If it kept crashing after doing this I would just leave it showing 4gb and it seemed to run much longer without a crash.

I did memtest on each stick and they all passed.

This lead me to believe I had a bad DIMM slot so i RMAed the motherboard. When I got the new one back the same issues persisted.

After talking to the G.Skill they thought it might be the RAM. So I ordered another identical set. I got those today and I'm still having the issue. However, after putting in the new set of RAM I've gotten all BSODs instead of restarts.

Also, the issue seems much worse first thing in the morning. I'll usually have 5+ crashes within an hour of starting the system in the morning. But then I can be good for 4-5 hours or more.

I'm really hoping someone here can help me out. I run my company from this computer and it's been extremely hard to get any work done.

A:Random Restarts and BSODs

Hello,

First off, make sure you are following proper order of population for your RAM. I have attached a copy of the relevant page from your motherboard manual.

If that doesn't help, then run Memtest86 on all sticks at the same time, from a cold boot (several hours' rest). If you didn't use Memtest86 the first time, see here: RAM - Test with Memtest86+ - Windows 7 Forums

Also, what is the make/model of your PSU?

Finally, do you have a different graphics card you can try?

Hi !

I was wondering if anyone can help me to determine why my sons computer have these random restarts and BSODs.

Earlier it happened like maybe once a day or so.

Now it starts happened more frequently, like 4-5 times a day and

well, it's time to do something about it.

The computer first go BSOD for like a tenth of a sec, too short to see what it says, then it restarts completely.

So I wonder, is there anywhere you can find what it said on the BSOD screen after the restart, so you can check for the error ?

I can say what its not, it's not the OP system, since it doesn't make any difference if its newly reinstalled or not.

The CPU temp are ok, only around 45c.

The motherboard is fairly new, not even a year, but on the other hand it doesn't have to mean a lot. Also the graphic card isn't too old.

It's a Celeron 2,4GHz with a P4S8X-X motherboard. 1280 DDR-ram.

What should I look for ?

Help me please !

I'm getting restarts and BSODs with no reliable/reproducible trigger. I have a 99% new computer, built within the last year:

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Core i7 870
16GB DDR3 RAM
Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3 MoBo

The only pieces I'm reusing from my old rig are the monitors, and my DROBO. I'm afraid, looking at some of my error logs, that the problem might be with the DROBO. For those that don't know the (Drobo Home), it's an external hard drive enclosure that is similar to RAID, but doesn't require all of the drives to be the same size. Mine attaches via iSCSI, or SCSI over gigabit ethernet, direct cabled.

I'm attaching my reports, and I would greatly appreciate any insight you guys might give me. Thanks in advance for your time.

A:BSODs and Restarts at random intervals

Some additional info I forgot in the original post:

While I think that the Drobo is possibly to blame, I can't easily disconnect it and see if the issue changes. This failure happens every day or two, and MOST of the data I use on this computer lives on the Drobo, so I wouldn't really be able to use the machine without it attached. Suggestions?

Running "WhoCrashed" gives me a lot of these:

On Mon 11/7/2011 5:20:51 PM GMT your computer crashed

This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

Is there something wrong with my network/iSCSI drivers, maybe? I'm pretty sure I have them all updated.

(Well then, as I was beginning to type this, my computer locked up once, then after rebooting I tried again and it randomly restarted on me, my luck, right?)

Hello. I have been experiencing lockups, restarts, and BSODs as of recent. My computer is 2-3 years old, and most of my information is located in my profile related to my system specs. This issue has begun occurring about a month or two ago, malwarebytes has had 2 full scans through my computer and has found nothing, Microsoft Security Essentials(My static antivirus) did not pick anything up as well. I've opened up my case and cleaned out the dust, I've given my hardware a good look over and noticed nothing out of the ordinary (no bulging capacitors, no dead fans) which is a bit disheartening. Usually I come here and read other posts for my issues, but this one I can -not- solve on my own, this is my 3rd day of attempting to diagnose my computer's problem and I don't think I'm getting anywhere. (Which is bad considering I have weekly papers to do for college classes as well, looks like I get to practice my handwriting in any case today.)
Help would be very much appreciated, thank you!

Recently my computer has been restarting randomly, and by restarting I don't mean shutting down, waiting a bit and then starting again, I mean the screen goes instantly black and restarting happens immediately, the computer never stops making the usual noises (fans etc) during any of this.

Occasionally, instead of restarting, the screen will display glitched for a moment before actually displaying a BSOD (error code 0x0000007F) and then restarting normally.

This so far has only happened while focus was on Google Chrome (47.0.2526.58 beta-m (64-bit)), with all but 1 of them happening while watching a Youtube video (happens randomly, sometimes even after hours of watching videos), the one exception was on twitter.
Gaming and other tasks that strain the pc much more than Chrome work just fine.


I've attempted memtest, sfc /scannow and tried updating every driver.
Nothing is overclocked and fans are working exactly as they always did.
I checked the error logs Windows outputs using BlueScreen Viewer, and there are by far not enough logs for how often the computer crashes, so make of that what you will...

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.

This problem has been going on for about 2 weeks now. It began while I was playing a game, and the PC simply froze. I was unable to reboot, so I shut the computer down and tried to turn it back on. I got a "1 long" beep code. I tried replacing the RAM with some older sticks I had, same error.

The next day I replaced the Mobo. It booted to POST but reported that it could not detect my hard-drive. I fiddled with the thing for about 4 hours without getting a proper boot. Finally I put everythingback the way it was (old motherboard and all) and somehow it booted. From then, I've been getting seemingly random errors.

Sometimes the computer will simply reboot. Most of the time it was not POST properly after a reboot and I must keep turning it on/off before I can get windows to load.

Sometimes the computer locks up, and I have to do the same as above.

Sometimes I get an error on POST about resetting the CPU freq. My CPU Freq is and always has been at default.

I've seen several errors on my BSODs: IRQ not less than, page fault in non paged error, etc. My event log is full of 4609 errors.

I thought it might be an issue with overheating, so I put in two new 180mm fans. It still has the same problems.

I put in some old ram. That seemed to do the trick, but today it has started rebooting yet again.

I thought maybe some user setting were corrupted or some such, so I completely deleted my user account and started another one. No dice.

Note: I highly doubt it is a software problem or even a driver problem: sometimes the computer will not even turn on. After a "reboot" it won't fully reboot and I'll turn it off. I'll either get a long beep or simply a black screen with all fans running.

I basically need to find out which hardware needs replacing.

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

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

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

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

First of all, a problem i have for some months: When i use mozila firefox browser, the computer crashes after a few minutes
And when i start BFBC2, it instantly reboots

But lately, it is happening more often, the computer restarts randomly when browsing in chrome, or playing in games (such as garrysmod and fallout new vegas)

And i'm not sure that it is a BSOD, because i only have two minidumps that are pretty old

I don't know if this is a software or hardware problem, because i tried installing drivers and it didn't help, and some months ago i reformatted windows and it didn't help either

The GPU Temperature is about 60*C after the computer restarts which is normal
And the CPU Temperature is about 59*C too

I'm planning on upgrading the hardware, probably the GPU
but i don't know if it is the problem, or is it the processor/psu/ram/motherboard/etc..

Included perfmon and bsod dump/system report file, but i'm not sure if the problems i have are BSODs since i don't get the actual blue screen and i only have two old minidumps
The computer just randomly restarts

Dumps are old...but the Aug 3rd one points to problems with your graphics drivers.
Please renew: ati driver

Make SURE you delete old first.
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Driver Sweeper

Driver Sweeper is a fast tool to remove driver leftovers from your system. It's very important to remove your drivers on a proper way, because driver leftovers can cause problems like stability and startup problems. You can use it if you want to update/remove drivers from your system.

How to use ?

There are two methods to use Driver Sweeper.
Both methods achieve the same results. This method is always able to clean all files.

This method will delete remaining files upon reboot (if deleting failed). You can clean your drivers this way:

- Use the official uninstaller(s) of the driver(s) you want to uninstall.
- Reboot your PC in Safe Mode.
- Run Driver Sweeper and select what to clean.
- Analyse lists all the entries possible to remove, cleaning removes the entries selected.
- More drivers can be selected for the same cleaning process.

Hello!

For the last year I've been having problems with random BSOD, hangs, and system restarts. Sometimes there are several each day, sometimes there are a few days between. It seems to happen predominately when I run games with 3D graphics, but it's definately not exclusive to that.

My system is an Alienware Aurora R2. Windows 7 64 bit. Tell me if any specific system components would be useful and I can figure out what they are.

I've ran memtest a while ago and chkdsk without finding any problems. I've used Dell's service to check for suggested driver updates and done that. I've updated the latest graphics card driver.

I've tried some basic googling and some of the common solutions but nothing so far has fixed it, and since I don't know what's exactly wrong I have a hard time proceeding.

A lot of the system dumps are attached in the .rar.

If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be grateful.

Hi, and welcome to TSF.

The minidumps are only a small portion of the information collected if you follow the instructions here : Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista.

Whilst you wait for an analyst to come along, I would check for an update for your graphics card : Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 notebook with Vista Home. It's doing a very annoying thing. Normally when I shut the laptop, it goes into hibernate mode. However, occasionally I'll open it back up to find that it's crashed and restarted (error message says it was a BSOD). There seems to be no rhyme or reason for this.

Any ideas as to what the problem could be? Perhaps there is a patch, but I'm not sure what it would be called or where to look. I checked the Acer website for known bugs for this computer, but there weren't any hibernation/blue screen related ones. I didn't find anything useful at the Windows site, and calling Acer customer support is a waste of time (too many bad experiences with them).

Sometimes I'll be working and the computer will just freeze, or restart automatically.

I have just reinstalled Windows so it can't be that.

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

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

I hope it's just some driver error.

I'll attach the stuff required in a BSOD post.

Is Windows 7 . . .

All of the crashes from when you updated to SP-1 were caused by memory corruption

These were caused by a memory exception. Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.
1-Memtest.

*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.

Hi,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Then after many tries, it worked, it booted up, but got a bluescreen during... Read more

Hi. . .

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

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

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

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

Code:

It will take about a minute to run... then save it as an HTML file.

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

First thing to do is determine which device the above is pointing to. Do you have your chipset drivers installed?


Security Software: ??? I recommend either of these two setups:Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Good and Free system security combination.
Download and install the security setup of your choice, update the software, and then run a full scan of your system for viruses and malware. If you only install MSE, I would also suggest installing and updating Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download, but do not start the free trial/full version of Malwarebytes. Run a full scan with Malwarebytes after updating it. Post back the results.

Hi all,

Never tried using a forum before so please excuse me if I do something wrong.
I'm desperate.
I built this PC with a little help from a computer savant. He helped me chose the pieces and I put it together. It's about 15 months old. Recently it fried the main SSD from which the OS booted (after 11 months of use). It was of course my fault for filling the SSD more than 80% (I have no computer certifications, I go by instinct most of the time and then learn the hard way) ... so it wouldn't surprise me if I have something to do with the computer failing so much now.
I've also had the feeling that my system has never really ran at full potential.
I think my BIOS settings need seen to as well. It's all on "default", when I think they can be tuned according to the components... but I don't know how to do that

Anyway, I'll do my best to answer and follow the guide you provide;

? OS - Windows 7
? x64
? What was original installed OS on system? Nothing, I built the tower from scratch
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? No, pirated version of Windows Ultimate 7
? Age of system (hardware) 15 months
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? Twice, because fried the SSD in January-ish this year

Sorry for all the text and thanks for reading in advance.

BSODs are random, it can be just browsing chrome or in the middle of a game. I've attached my most recent dumps. Strange things that my computer does that are worth noting is random extensions crash on chrome, and sometimes chrome just closes at a random time and won't open back up until I restart my computer. Some games(overwatch is the most consistent in crashing but it's still random) randomly crash so I thought it might have been my video card, but I run Unigine perfectly fine with alright temperatures in the max settings. Also when chrome crashes sometimes when I go to restart my computer that's when I'll get a bluescreen. Just before I started writing this my chrome closed so I had to restart and got the damn BSOD. Sometimes I will go to restart or shutdown and it just gets stuck on shutting down.

It's like sometimes I am certain that is has to be a driver, other times I am not sure at all, and then something else a little different will happen and then I'm certain it's hardware. I can't pin it down at all.

I'm on my 3rd set of ram, chkdsk and memtest both come back with zero problems. I want to list everything I've done but to be honest over the course of half a year, I can't even remember half of the things.

Hey everyone, i've been having the same BSOD ever since I got my new computer in November last year.

After repeatedly getting the 'A clock interval was not recieved on a secondary processor' BSOD a million times, I decided to send my processor back to ebuyer who said it was faulty and sent me a new one. I've also reinstalled windows completely as well as take out all parts to clean them.

Unfortunately this still hasnt solved my problem out like i'd hoped. The bluescreens are less frequent but still a nuisance when I'm trying to do my university work. It also crashes randomly sometimes without a bluescreen error.

I found a post here and read about running my minidump files through Microsoft's debugger but the setup just failed so I find myself begging for someone to take a look at my minidump files and potentially find me an answer to this frustrating problem.

The crashes typically occur when doing very small tasks like clicking a button in 3DS max, links on firefox. It seems to happen when it's loading something within an application its more likely to crash. People i've spoke to about it think it could be the motherboard but i've updated the bios.

Back in May I went through quite a few rounds of troubleshooting here for BSOD's that had been occurring. (Search for my previous threads to see that.) I ran memtest for 8 hours and had no errors, updated a bunch of drivers, etc. Since then I have had almost no issues... until a couple of days ago. Now it seems suddenly I am getting BSOD's very frequently - sometimes multiple times a day. There is no obvious pattern as to what triggers them. Sometimes I am using Eclipse (Java IDE). Sometimes I am reading email on Outlook. Etc. I have attached the zip file with all the dumps from the very latest BSOD. I can attach others if needed. Perhaps someone here will see an issue that I can fix. Thanks!

A:BSODs recurring after a few months with few or none

First off, the G750 series has had some issues with video card problems (both with overheating and with failing cards). Stay aware of this while you're troubleshooting.

This device needs to have drivers installed:





Not Available PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8C3A&SUBSYS_119D1043&REV_04\3&11583659&0&B0 The drivers for this device are not installed.



This is most likely the Intel(R) Management Engine Interface Driver. Please download and install the latest, Win8.1 compatible version available from the Asus website.

Out of 6 memory dumps there were 5 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. 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.
- dirt/dust/hair/fur/crud inside the case. Blow out the case/vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum as they can cause damage to the system)
- missing Windows Updates
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostic... Read more

Hello all. I've been getting blue screen crashes for months (a check in my event viewer shows they started around January). Only recently did I decide enough was enough and to start looking into them.

Primarily, they manifest as STOP 0x109 errors, but there have also been a couple 0x1e errors and a few others show up once. I tried to enable driver verifier, as my research led me to believe that this was a driver error modifying the windows kernel. However, every time I tried to enable it and reboot, I would get a 0xc9 error. I found the erroneous driver that was causing this issue and deleted it, but upon digging back into the original repeated 0x109 errors I kept coming across the following in WinDbg:

"BugCheck 109, {a3a039d8a54ad540, 0, b266a988baa6cd90, 101}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt+76e80 )"

A quick google search yielded that this is the NT Kernel Multiprocessor, and that this showing up is something of a red herring - that is to say, it's an inconclusive cause for the issue. So, I'm hoping someone can help me out and point me in the right direction to determine what hardware is causing this issue (as I am now fairly certain it's a hardware issue, since it's not a specific driver being returned).

Thanks in advance, and please let me know if there is any information I neglected.

It was kind of a curve ball, and a little unsettling, because I thought I had solved the problem. I think I've narrowed it down to my graphics card, since a lot of the recent BSODs point to it, but I'm not sure if it's because the drivers are bad, or if the card itself is bad (it's an Nvidia, and I thought that those cards are able to withstand gaming for several years, so I'm a little disheartened if it's a bad card).

Specs:
OS: Windows 7
x64
The original installed OS was Windows 7, I think (this is a used laptop)
My OS is a full retail version
Hardware around 4 years old
The OS was re-installed 6-8 months ago.

CPU: Intel Core i7 Q720 @ 1.6 GHz
Video card: Nvidia GeForce GTS 360M
Motherboard: I'm not sure, but I assume it's the original Asus version?
Power supply: Asus N193 85V
System Manufacturer: Asus
Model Number: G60JX
I'm hoping that this is maybe a driver problem, and not something serious like a defective card or maybe faulty RAM.

Thank you for reading this!

A:After a few months of no BSODs, it suddenly came back

Hello NocturnalSleep,

Various differemt bugchecks but they're all pointing to your GPU drivers of DirectX one way or another. I'd recommend uninstalling and reinstalling your nVidia video drivers and reinstalling the latest version. If you're already on the latest version, I'd recommend uninstalling and installing a previous version to the latest to be sure it's not a simple driver issue.

Driver(s) in need of update:
