BSOD While playing games, Please Help

Q: BSOD While playing games, Please Help

Hello I have been getting blue screen of death for some time now. I don't know what the problem is and all my drivers are up to date (that I am able to find).

These BSOD mostly happen while playing GTA 4 and sometimes Skyrim but I am not sure with other games. This will mostly happen after about 1-2 hours of playing GTA 4.

I re installed windows 7 but I did save most of my files like music and stuff. I thought this would fix the problem but it didn't.

Here is what BlueScreenView says is causing the problem.

To make it easier to see what is causing it, here are the two files it shows.

Wdf01000.sys
xusb21.sys

It does not show where these two files are located at or a description of it.

Please help because this is getting very annoying.

Here is my computer Specs:

GTX 580
8gb RAM

If anyone can explain how to fix this please be specific because it can be hard for me to follow at times. Something like a step by step process

Hello all,

I've been having a few problems with my laptop since I bought it. The problem mainly occurs when I'm playing a game (usually xcom: enemy unknown or deus ex HR at the moment) but has occurred when I'm browsing the internet (albeit far less often). The BSODs appear to be random but I'm using a blue tooth mouse and have noticed the BSOD will usually happened if I'm using it. I've also noticed that my laptop screen with black out for a split second on games that are quite graphics intensive for my system.

Its been frustrating me a lot so I reinstalled and fully updated windows 7. The GPU drivers are all up to date also.

I've attached the SF file that is required and would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks for your time

Hello sevenforums Community,
since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.
In the last two weeks i always got this message (STOP : 0x00007A (0xFFFF6FC50023598,0xFFFFFFFFC000000E,0x000000002A991880,0xFFFFF8A0046B30BE) ) without a sound and the pc didnt instantly reboot.
But the last days the Blackscreen stayed like 4 second so i couldnt see the error message on it, so i dont know if the error changed but there was this buzzing sound.

I really appreciate help (and sorry for my english skills ^^)

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

I just updated and rebuilt my PC and have reinstalled Win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a BSOD while using the PC. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet.
From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

I have had limited success in installing updates/Service Packs when using a "clean boot". I suspect that I'm just bypassing the problem - and that it can come back to bite me in the butt later on.

Hello guys. So here is my issue i dont really know how to specific it further then this still hope it will help.

I have been getting BSOD for a while now and it's getting to the point i cant do a single thing on the computer. I did the config for dumps and so on and ended up with this RAR file with all the info i assume. I mostly get the bluescreen when i try to watch anime etc on googlechrome. It never works it's a matter of seconds before the BSOD comes. But when watching it on other browsers like opera it works just fine "mostly" even there it bluescreens from time to time. And then there is when it's most fatal, Playing onlinegames. Whenever I play online games like World of warcraft, League of Legends, Heroes of Neweart etc etc etc i risk getting bluescreens. It differs very much from game to game how often the bluescreens appear and it seems to not be preformance related since sometimes i play constantly for hours when maxing out games and pushing the computer to it's limits when it comes to frames. And still the bluescreen lies in dorment waiting for a more suitable interrupt for me. From the looks of it the bluescreen is related mostly to my operatingsystem more then commponents after i looked at the dumpfiles via "Bluescreenviewer".

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this and i hope you guys can help me with this. also this is my first post so I maybe did this typical "bad thread", Still i hope this will get me atleast closer to... Read more

Hello,

So first of all, I am not a computer wizard. Some terms I might not understand as i've never had a problem like this before, but i'll try to enlist as much information as possible.

Since last friday or so, i've suddenly encountered a BSOD. Now, i've had them before and it was only once. After a reboot it usually never happend again and everything was cool. But since friday, they popped up again. Mainly during playing Battlefield 1, but i've also had it happen during Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2.

I've had multiple BSOD errors, which are:

- IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL
- BAD POOL HEADER
- MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
- SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
- APC_INDEX_MISMATCH

Now if it were one, I might've been able to pinpoint the issue, but.. They're constantly different errors that happen. Now, to explain a bit more in detail how it goes:

So i'm just playing a match of Battlefield 1. After 10/15 minutes give or take, it'll bring me to the blue screen. After processing whatever it has to process, computer shuts down and it starts to restart. At this point it will be stuck in an infinite restart loop, where my monitor will not display anything as well. It just says it's not connected to something, which it clearly is. After manually closing and rebooting, i'll have to do this a few times or mess with the HDMI a little bit before I get my monitor to pop up again. Once that happens, I get stuck in the beginning screen where you can see your HDD/SSD installed. It won't go further than that unless I ... Read more

Short version: My PC is getting a BSOD at random times when full screen gaming. The BSOD screen says the video card times out.

Long Version:
I have a gaming PC that a friend generously gave me when he built a new one. It's worked great, but in November the Tagan ITZ 700 watt power supply died. He had planned to do SLI and never did, so during Neweggs holiday sale I picked up a Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 thinking it should be sufficient.

Everything has run smoothly with the new PSU except for the fact that when playing games like Torchlight 2 and Starcraft 2, my machine will BSOD. I had random BSOD's with Starcraft 2 and then suddenly had 4 nights in a row with no problems and then today it keeps crashing at the same spot in the campaign. There is little consistency to the crashes other than that and under normal operations, like email, web browsing, etc, it has only BSOD'd once and that was during a youtube video.

My first thought is that the one thing that has changed recently is the PSU and prior to that I only recall a rare crash here and there. I thought maybe my new PSU wasn't good enough, but everything I've read online about the requirements for the GTX 460, including the manual, say 450 watt minimum and I exceed that.

Here is a list of things I have tried:

- Updated video card and mobo drivers, I have also uninstalled the nvidia drivers, run Driver Sweeper in safe mode, and reinstalled drivers in normal mode.

I keep getting BSODs when I play games for a short while. At first I thought it was a bad installation of Windows, so I did a clean format (full) of my SSD and a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Installation failed quite a few times before finally succeeding. Tried another copy of Windows 7, same install failures. I finally finished reinstalling Windows 7 on my PC. I suspected the RAM to be at fault so I ran MemTest86+ and found a ton of errors. Upon closer inspection of the BIOS settings, I found that my board was clocking my ram in [Auto] mode at 1333mhz instead of the factory 1600mhz (Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 @1600 CAS9 on Asus Sabertooth Z77). I updated my BIOS to the latest as of this posting and I still have to manually set the memory frequencies for it to run at 1600mhz.

Everything seemed fine for a few hours running prime95. I supposed my PC was fine now after that clean install of Windows 7, but a few minutes into playing Battlefield 3, I BSOD. I am no pro at reading dump files and I was hoping someone could help me isolate the sources of my BSODs. I've attached the minidump files for each BSOD below. Thanks!

When I play Fifa 17 with the charger plugged in, the fans are very loud and the laptop gets pretty hot. When I play Fifa 17 on battery only (charger not plugged in) the fans are quite silent and the laptop doesn't get hot at all. Why is that? For all I know, I would expect the exact opposite...Thanks in advance!Kind regards,Tijs

BSOD #1: It started at around January 15th - basically when i shoot down the system, theres a suprisingly short windows update. Then whenever i boot the PC and it starts to configure the update, bluescreen pops up with an error code 0x0000007E and i have to use system recovery to succesfully run the system.

BSOD #2: Ive never fixed it and it occures since i bought the PC. When i play games (and very rarely when using internet browser) my PC is getting random freezes, display driver errors, monitor is turning off and of course sometimes BSODs happen. Ive tried several different drivers, memory/hdd tests, temperatures, stress tests, 2 different monitors and GPUs, and plugging out/in hardware inside the PC case then i gave up. So basically all the BSODs listed in a ZIP file until January 15th are related to this problem.

No Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 70 to 140 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Don't worry about the specific number, it's just important that you have checked and installed any updates that were available (and didn't experience any errors).

I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win8/8.1 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 and later systems - using older drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have the latest Win8/8.1 drivers - DO NOT use older drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

Hello, tbrown26. I will try to help you with this.

None of your dump files were overly definitive, as usual. The first thing I would like you to do is fill out your system specs in detail. Sometimes we have to look up a component and Manufacturer and model number helps us to do that.
Please fill out your System Specs


   Information
Your System Specs will help us to help you, and doing it in this manner will make them available to all helpers in every post and keep us from hunting for them. We ask that you fill them out in as much detail as possible including Desktop or Laptop, Model number if it is an OEM computer and all components with the Manufacturer and Model number if possible.

If you will go to your last post and click the 'System Specs' in the bottom left of the post, you will find a link to update your system specs. Please fill those out in as much detail as possible, making sure to click save at the bottom of the page. If you would like to know what we would like, you can click 'My System Specs' at the bottom left of this post to see mine. If you do not know what your components are, this will help you accomplish this task. System Info - See Your System Specs

After completing that please open a elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc a... Read more

I have a 1 year old Toshiba Satellite A660:
i5-450m
Windows 7 Home premium 64bit OEM original install
4GB of ram
Geforce 330m 1GB

Recently while gaming I've been experiencing BSODs and on the blue screen it'll say something about DPC. I'm not sure what's causing this and in reliability moniter it'll usually have something about Windows failing a bugcheck a minute or so before the BSOD the bugcheck states:
The bugcheck was: 0x000000b8 (0xfffffa800a2b1b60, 0xfffff880033ddfc0, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

attached is the zip file as per stickied thread

EDIT: Tried reinstalling graphics card drivers, did not solve BSOD

A:BSOD while playing a variety of games, BSOD references DPC

Before I get into anything too fancy, could you do me a favor and just reinstall your graphics driver here?
It's the faulting driver in 90% of these dumps.

A:BSOD after playing games + Random BSOD on startup

Welcome

Your dumps don't have a probable cause, keep blaming windows files (Not true causes)

Since everything was fine with the laptop before the power failure, your best bet would be to dismantle and reconnect all the hardware components (if you're good with it) and do a fresh install of windows on your laptop

Fill in your specs and the make of the laptop

Hi Aviraj & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

I have analysed your dump files and below has been provided an analysis of the same for informative purposes :-
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000007e)
This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints the driver/function that caused the problem.
Let's check the stack -

Code:
7: kd> knL
# Child-SP RetAddr Call Site
00 ffffd002`01ea7970 fffff801`ae339456 nt!KxWaitForLockOwnerShip+0x12

03 ffffd002`01ea7be0 00000000`00000000 nt!KiStartSystemThread+0x16


So, we see that the system was waiting to get a lock on a resource but sadly it was not fulfilled and hence the system crashed . Sadly, the dump file failed to capture the culprit in this case.

Below is a list of 3rd party drivers present on your system -

So I've been getting BSOD fairly regularly for a few months now. Typically it's occurred when I play either Primal Carnage or Final Fantasy XIV. I've ran memtest and that didn't seem to turn anything up. If you guys could figure this out, i'd greatly appreciate it.

Here are some details on my system:

? Windows 8
? x64
? This was a clean install install. I was originally running windows 7 though.
? Purchased from microsoft
? Age of System: 1-2 years
? Age of OS install: ~6 months - I have not reinstalled

? AMD Phenom II X4 ~4.0GHz
? AMD Radeon HD 6800
? Motherboard: MSI 890GXM-G65 (MS-7642)
? Power Supply - Raidmax Technologies Inc. RX-850AE (850W)

? Custom Built PC

Hi,

We have various different bugchecks based off of the dumps provided:

WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124)

A fatal hardware error has occurred. This fatal error displays data from the Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA).

If we run an !errrec on the 2nd parameter of the bugcheck (WER structure address), we get the following:


Code:

===============================================================================
Section 2 : x86/x64 MCA

Misc. : 0x0000000000000000
We have the same consistent error throughout the dumps, even the same Proc and Cache Bank as well (2 and 0).

DCACHEL1_DRD_ERR implies there was a data read error from the L1 cache of the CPU.

Hello cwhite, Welcome to SF

Both of your dump files indicate an 0x124 error which is a hardware error heres some more info for you
BSOD Index
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

To be more specific your files state
BUSL0_SRC_ERR_M_NOTIMEOUT_ERR
this indicates the processor sent out a read request to L0 cache, and there was a delay in return

if your system is overclocked in anyway stop straight away if not check your cpu cooling as this may be caused by overheating, check your system/cpu temps and if they seem ok then try some stress testing of the cpu but be careful to monitor cpu temps at all times while stressing

Hello, psychobean and welcome to the forms. I will try to assist you. You only had 1 dump file, dated today. It said, as you know, it was your graphics driver.


Code:

VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (116)
Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
Arguments:
Arg1: fffffa800a9f74e0, Optional pointer to internal TDR recovery context (TDR_RECOVERY_CONTEXT).
Arg2: fffff88003ce5970, The pointer into responsible device driver module (e.g. owner tag).
Arg3: 0000000000000000, Optional error code (NTSTATUS) of the last failed operation.
Arg4: 000000000000000d, Optional internal context dependent data.
A Video TDR fault means basically the graphics driver crashed but did not recover in time, so the system assumes a video failure and shuts down to protect itself. This is your current driver

Hi,

On my 2nd pc I often play games...
Today I launched CoD Black Ops 2 after updating Nvidia drivers from 314.07 WHQL to 314.14 beta... But after 5 minutes of playing a BSoD appears and my computer restart.

I resetted my BIOS because it refused my RAM sticks after the firts BSoD... Now Windows works well, but I get blue screen every time i play a heavy graphics game.

I ran Windows memory diagnostic and it detected a memory problem...
My specs are:

- CPU: Core 2 Duo E6300 @3GHz @1.28V
- RAM: 4,5 GB DDR2 @860MHz @1.92V (1GB PC-6400 + 2GB PC-6400 + 1GB PC-5300 + 512 MB PC-5300)
- Mtherboard: Asus P5Q PRO (@430MHz FSB)
- GPU: PNY GTS 450 1GB GDDR5 @stock frequencies
- 600W PSU

I was able to play normally yesterday, today I had this issue for the first time...
What could be the problem? RAM, GPU?...

Here's my BSoD screenshot:



Any help will be very appreciated.
Now I'm going to run Windows memory test with every single stick of RAM...

Hello guys, I use this computer mainly to work with Adobe software (PS, AI, Premiere and After effects),
Specially After effects, push the hardware to the limits, oddly when I play some games like Metal Gear Solid V, or recent FPS that push harder from the hardware I can be sure that a BSOD will happen, it can take hours, or minutes, but sooner or later it will happen.
So here's the description:

A:BSOD When playing games

Ok guys after I posted this I felt some guilt because I rarely need help on computer issues, so I decided to make a full check again and discovered that I had the Ram assembled in the wrong Dimm slots. It was supposed to be in A2 and B2 since I have 2*8 Gb, and it was on A1 and B2, probably causing memory errors?

Thank you.

What you describe usually points to a hardware problem. While waiting for a reply, I'd suggest starting with this free video card test:

Quote:




FurMark download site: FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
NOTE: Set the alarm to go off at 90?C. Then watch the system from that point on. If the system doesn't display a temperature, watch it constantly and turn it off at the first sign of video problems. DO NOT leave it it unmonitored, it can DAMAGE your video card!!!
If the temperature gets above 100?C, quit the test - the video card is overheating.
- Click "Quit" to exit




Just FYI, here's the full list of my recommended hardware diagnostic/stress tests:

Hi, Good day.

I was playing different games such as FF12 through PCSX2, League of Legends, and Rohan Online when my computer restarted. It happened before though not frequent. But last week and today I've encountered it again. It occurs randomly when I'm playing most of the time when I'm playing full screen. After reboot there's a message that the windows recovered unexpectedly then the problem says bluescreen though I didn't really saw any bluescreen.

Here are the things that I did to solve the problem:

- Reinstalled windows, changed it from ultimate to home basic
- memtest (no errors)
- updated nvidia driver to latest (blue screen still occurred, so I've decided to change it back to the old version where I encounter the problem less) I used driver sweeper.
- Burn test gpu and cpu, It didn't occur.

Can anyone kindly point me to the right direction?

Processor: Intel? Core™ i3-2100 CPU @ 3.10GHz 7.1 5.5
Memory: (RAM) 4.00 GB
Graphics: Palit GT 220 1gb
System type: Windows 7 Home Basic 64-bit operating system

Thank you in anticipation of your response.

I'm an avid gamer and play League of Legends, TF2, Hearthstone, and many other games.
Recently I've been having (seemingly) random BSODs after playing these games for more than an hour at a time, except for Hearthstone, suprisingly.

I am generally unable to see what error codes come through due to my pc restarting almost instantly after the BSOD comes up, which I apologize for not having.

If any more information is required, I am willing to supply it as needed.

Attached is the debug file that is asked for in BSOD threads.

Many thanks in advance!

Hi! My computer crashes when I'm playing intensive games like Call of Duty Black Ops, or L.A. Noire. Sometimes it shows the bluescreen, and sometimes the games just freezes and I have to reset the computer.

System Specs:
Intel Core i3 2100 @ 3.1Ghz
2Gb Kingston RAM (1x2Gb) + 4Gb Zeppelin RAM (2x2Gb)
WDC Green 2.0 TB HDD
Palit nVidia Geforce GT 440
Coolermaster retail 450W power supply.
I built the system.
It's about half a year old.
I have reinstalled the OS (used to be Windows 7 Ultimate x86, now its Ultimate x64)

Here are the dump files & perfmon report html.

Thanks in advance!

Running the last 10 memory dumps

Lot's of issues with your VMWare and it's networking. I'd suggest uninstalling the program while we're troubleshooting - then installing the latest version once we're done and the system is stable.

Your SMBus (PCI\\VEN_8086&DEV_1C22&SUBSYS_844D1043&REV_05\\3&11583659&0&FB) and your Multimedia Audio Controller ( PCI\\VEN_13F6&DEV_0111&SUBSYS_011113F6&REV_10\\5&9C286&0&0000E7 ) are having issues - please update the drivers for each of these devices. You can look up the ID numbers at PCI Vendor and Device Lists

More to follow after dinner.......
