Unexpected Crashes Need Advice (Minidumps)

Q: Unexpected Crashes Need Advice (Minidumps)

Hi everyone.

I apologize if I've incorrectly posted here, but I have read most of the walk throughs for Stop errors and the like. I have done all accept flashing my bio's and defragging. Why? I am working in a professional environment and time has not presented itself for these options yet.

We have recurring unexpected crashes, and I have gotten predominant stop messages such as: 0x100000d1. I know this is commonly a driver / memory / page file issue. Yet in the meantime, any help you guys could give in finding a specific cause in the minidumps would be greatly greatly appreciated.

I've attached the last six minidumps below.

Thanks very much

PS: Stats are:
AMD Athlon XP, 2083 MHz (12.5 x 167) 2600+
Gigabyte GA-7VT600 1394 (5 PCI, 1 AGP, 3 DDR DIMM, Audio, LAN, IEEE-1394)
VIA VT8377 Apollo KT600
Windows XP SP2
We are using various external audio hardware, which I can provide details of if necessary.

PPS: Details of crashes:
I work in a music studio and this problem in one way or another has been in the system since I started working here. The potential issues are staggering which is why I can't pin this damn thing down, and I'm not an IT guy anyways I'm an audio engineer who is pretty good with computers.

We mainly use two pieces of software: Sonar 7.1, and Wavelab 5. We use a MOTU 2804 mk3 as our audio interface. Strangely the crashes seem to get "worse" sometimes and then not so much. Why it would be intermittent I have no clue. Alas, the system either abruptly shuts down, completely powers off and begins rebooting (automatically restart is On). Other times it might freeze and a force boot is required.

I've started following all instructions here and updated mobo chipset drivers, vid card drivers, audio card drivers, audio interface drivers, network card drivers, ran MemTest, ran CCleaner. Alas I haven't been able to just start unplugging drives/devices (there are 5 total external HD's hooked up to the machine at all times...) or memory because again I am in a tight spot: the machine is used, albeit inefficiently, for professional sessions each day, so doing things like that would invoke a 'Critical Mass' situation, but if I cannot resolve this issue it will come to a reformat or something.

Thanks again.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Unexpected Crashes Need Advice (Minidumps)

I note you have been waiting two days for help. Sorry about that. I don't read the minidumps but the Event Viewer in windows XP is a great tool:
To access The Event Viewer:
Start> Run> cmd> type in eventvwr
What you'll see:
Description of the Event Viewer:




Unfortunately, many Windows XP users aren't aware of the Event Viewer, what it is, where it is, how it can help with a problem:
The Event Viewer has logs for everything that happens on the computer. There are three sets of logs: System, Applications and Security. By opening the first two to display the Events, you can look for Errors that correspond to the time of the problem- in your case, the crash.

There are three types of Events in the System and Apps logs:
1. Information (white circle w/blue i): this is just basic documentation of the normal working of the System or Apps.
2. Warnings (yellow triangle w/black exclamation mark) noting some problem at that moment. Warnings usually resolve on their own. If they do not, they become>>>
3. Errors (red circle w/white X- they document something that didn't work or isn't happening as it should. Each Errors has three parts: an ID#, a Source and a Description. By doing a right click> Properties, the Error will open to a screen that can be copied. These three parts taken together can usually lead to cause and resolution.Click to expand...

Do this on each the System and the Applications logs:
Click to open the log> look for the Error> right click on the Error> Properties> Click on Copy button, top right, below the down arrow and Paste here (Ctrl V)

The should be an Error corresponding with stop messages such as: 0x100000d1. It will give us more information that just the stop alone. You will also want to find Errors corresponding in time to those 'unexpected crashes.'

You can ignore the Categories 1 and 2. If you have a recurring Error with same ID#, same Source and same Description, only one copy is needed. You don't need to include the lines of code in the box below the Description, if any.

Please do not copy the entire Event log.

Since you mention several audio devices, we may find evidence that one or more of them are causing the problems. I will also mentioned that you sould make sure that your power supply is adequate to support all the devices.

I have a Compaq proliant server (DL380 G1) which has recently strated to blue screen and restart. I receive Event id 1003 on restart but cannot track down the cause. I have attached a handful minidumps to see if anyone can shed any light as to why this is happening.

Many thanks
 

A:Unexpected restarts Minidumps attached

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

All your minidumps crash with a bugcheck of A, several reference the driver vsp.sys. This is part of your Veritas software.

Try updating the vsp.sys driver. Check for any patches that might be available.

Basically, I have a computer that was generating errors while trying to access Microsoft Updates. As part of the resolution of these errors the owner ran TDSS Killer. TDSS Killer reported to have found something, and removed it. The computer was restarted. Upon reboot it was discovered that computer crashed during the login process. This is when the owner asked me for help. I was able to boot the computer in safe mode. I have disabled all start up items but still experience the crash. I was able to get the crash dump files from safe mode and analyzed them on my laptop. The file causing the crashes (as reported by the Minidumps) is zbhemvyk5.sys. If I was to make an SWAG I would say this machine is infected by some sort of a rootkit. So, I come to y'all asking for help as I have been unable to find any information about this particular file. The PC in question is running Windows XP SP3. Any help that could point me in the right direction for removal would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

I have been getting lots of 9F crashes on a HP DV7 laptop running 64bit Windows 7 Home Premium.

Problem is the the minidumps are not being saved! I have set it up to save them (small dumps) and not to automatically restart. I cant debug it without them .

Any ideas why they wouldnt be saving?

Thanks!

A:BSOD's not saving minidumps, multiple 0x9F crashes

There are several reasons that may prevent you from having a DMP file in the usual places.

If your control panel is not configured for small dump you probably will then find it in C:\windows and it will be called MEMORY.dmp. It will overwrite every crash.

Other reasons are if you have UAC turned off, if you have a small page file, or a page file on a different HD than the OS.


Please provide us with your Event Viewer administrative logs by following these steps:
Click Start Menu
Type eventvwr into Search programs and files (do not hit enter)
Right click eventvwr.exe and click Run as administrator
Expand Custom Views
Click Administrative Events
Right click Administrative Events
Save all Events in Custom View As...
Save them in a folder where you will remember which folder and save as Errors.evtx
Go to where you saved Errors.evtx
Right click Errors.evtx -> send to -> compressed (zipped) folder

Hi everyone.

Could someone please have a look at the minidumps, and try to figure out what is causing this computer to BSOD regulary?

Also, I am very interested in learning how to correctly identify issues when I encounter BSODs in the future, not just googling "bsod 0x1234", but analysing minidumps etc. So any pointers on what to look for or guides would be appreciated.

I have a relatively new computer that a techy friend built for me in the last six months or so, and it's been performing really well thus far, but this evening, I was just watching youtube when the display "crashed". I checked my monitor and all the connections to it, and they all turned out fine. There was a weird buzzing in my headphones as this happened.

I tried to push the manual restart button on the case, but that didn't appear to work, so I used the power button itself which turned it off. When I booted it back up and logged in, the computer was SUPER laggy, and I couldn't even open the task managed. I used ctrl+alt+del to try to gain access, but a message box popped up and told me something to the effect of "the task managed cannot be accessed with ctrl+alt+del".

One more restart and the computer seemed to come good, and after running a virus scan with Pareto Logic Internet Security (which turned up nothing) I opened the task manager and it all seemed fine. I don't usually pay too much attention to it, but the highest running process at the time was "SBAMSvc.exe *32". I tried to research it to see if that was a problem, but I couldn't find anything conclusive.

My problem is, this machine is made of (what I understand to be) pretty decent componentry, and it's only young. Considering all I had running was Skype in the background with a facebook and youtube tab open in Firefox, I'm confused as to what could possibly have happened. I'm no... Read more

For the past several months, I've had random crashes of my HP m9340f PC. I've never been able to correlate the crashes with any specific application or activity. This computer serves as my website server (Apache), HTPC using Windows Media Center for one TV, video server for saved DVD files using the MyMovies application (for this computer and another Vista box in the home theater), and gathering weather data using Virtual Weather Station. It is rare that I even actively "work" at this computer, as most of its software is set as servers. The crashes have never happened when I am working at the computer, programming, editing, etc.

I can see nothing listed in the normal windows event viewer logs, and trying to find a possible solution using the "Check for solutions" button (or something to that affect) does nothing. I haven't been able to find anything unusual in the event viewer that precedes the crashes. The computer just seems to reboot and I get the "...shutdown was unexpected" message box.

This computer runs Vista Home Premium, 64 bit.

I would appreciate any suggestions as to where I might look for possible answers. I have several minidumps in the directory, but have no idea how or what to look for when it comes to finding what is actually causing the crashes.

If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Start your own thread in the appropriate section of the forum and attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.

Hi!

I am having trouble with my PC:
ASUS NCCH-DL MOB
2x Xeon 2.8 GHz
2x 1 GB RAM (Kingston)
1 Nvidia Quadro FX 3000
1 Raid on the fast-track controller 2x 300 GB
1 Maxtor on the IDE Master
1 Samsung on the IDE secondary
WinXP SP2

The machine has been working fine for 2 years now. No unexpected crashes (except some application produced ones), nothing.

About 1 week ago, it started to shutdown with no warning. Just power gone. Then, after a few seconds (sometimes up to 10 sec), the machine will restart.

This also happens with no app running.

I verified Viruses - nothing
I checked malware - nothing

I tried to boot in safe-mode and it seemed that the machine ran fine (tested it on 18 hours) - no crash. This was while running the virus-scan.

I then started it up normally and tried some tests with SiSoft Sandra. Again, it crashed. But it did so at different test. Sometimes, the test went through sometimes they did not.
Same tests, no parameters changed.

Then, I rebooted and got a message saying:

*****Warning: System BOOT Fail *****
Your system maybe OverClock fail or POST interrupted.

Now, my system is not overclocked - I reset the bios to defaults before I started all my testing (BTW - it never was overclocked anyways...)

How can I narrow in on the problem?
Do any of you suffer the same experience?

Thank you,
Stefan.

A week ago I got a blue screen of death which I've never gotten on this (~3-4 year old) machine. When it booted back up it loaded a BiOS I'd never seen before Gigabyte UEFI double BiOS. Over the next several days the computer was rebooted and the normal BiOS came up without an issue. 3 days ago the computer was started up, shut down and restarted. On the second restart It got hung up on the Windows screen with this error

I restarted and everything worked just fine. I ran antivirus and anti malware scans which came up with nothing. I also ran chkdsk which came up just fine. Every time I turn the computer on sometimes it's fine, sometimes I get the alternate BiOS and sometimes Windows loads with a messed up screen resolution (which is fixed upon restart).

I've tried to read on this an other forums but I don't know what's going on. I don't know whether a plug is loose or if the motherboards failing or what. I'm not sure what other checks I can do. The intermittent nature of a seemingly big problem is inexplicable. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I have used Housecall from Trend Micro, ZoneAlarm Security Suite, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium, done numerous scans for viruses, infections, etc. and all of them say there are no problems. This didn't start happening until about a week ago when I did a manual update on Windows Update that was available and I also installed VLC Player because I wanted to be able to play flv files. I didn't get the result I wanted so I uninstalled VLC Player. Can someone here help? Thank you in advance, Fish4Bass.

The first and simplest option would be to use system restore to roll back your computer to a time before the problems started

System Restore

Another option would be to try a clean boot to remove start up items to see if the problem is caused by software/drivers clashing or causing problems

A week or two ago, my Gigabyte GTS 450 died, and I bought a new EVGA GTX 650 from newegg. When I switched video cards, I also updated the drivers from 306.97 to 310.90. Ever since installing the new video card, I've been getting intermittent "crashes"; usually while browsing reddit or some other mundane activity. I put crashes in quotes as I'm not getting any error codes, my machine -which had been extremely stable previous to this- simply shuts down. It's as if someone had flipped the power switch; leaving nothing in the event log except an entry marking an unexpected shutdown.

It's odd to me that this occurs only while the GPU is NOT under load. I can play LoL just fine, and even newer more taxing games like Diablo 3 or Borderlands 2. The main correlation I've found with the crashes is when I'm downloading something; sometimes an image on imgur or buffering a youtube video. Normal net traffic such as chatting on mumble with friends or watching a video stream don't seem to trigger a crash. I've found I can pretty consistently cause a crash by attempting to download a game from Steam. I'm unsure how these types of net traffic differ such that one causes a crash and another doesn't.

However these crashes don't happen in safe mode, or if I disable my video card drivers. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the video drivers or perhaps some other system component. I'm assuming it's the video dri... Read more

For some time my PC would crash (no BSOD, errors, etc) only when starting. Windows would usually load and then crash. Made no difference what program was started. PC running, no display. Ran MEM test, disk tests, checks in Vista, and with the PC... nothing. Once started, PC would run without fault for days if not shut off. Member suggested RAM could still be the problem. I purchased 4 sticks of replacement RAM and installed after a 10 day shut down. PC started without a problem. Hurrah!. Weather is warm; however, and the PC only seems to crash during chilly day startups. Hopefully, the problem is now solved. Many thanks.

I built a computer for the second time this month. Everything seemed fine until i started getting random system freezes. Sometimes it locks up and other times its the BSOD. The usually error is "Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal"

Nothing specific really caused them....Sometimes when I'm browsing the net or using flash.. I have found that it crashes mostly while gaming and definitely if I use certain filters in photoshop. (liquify) . Since I dual boot vista/xp and it happens with either OS I assume it's a hardware issue.

I've updated my bios and drivers. I've done a clean install of both OS twice. I replaced my crucial 1066 ram with OCZ reapers and the problem still remains. I've googled the error several times with no clear answer. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate your help.

Hi Guys.

About 3 months ago, my laptop started to act up.
The screen would get jumpy, horizaontal lines flashign across it, and then it would cut out. (altho lights are still on , the screen would be black) I would turn it off and turn it on ,and it may not happen again for a day week or even month.

Now things have worsened , it now happens every session often failing to start altogether. The jumping has worsened too, it can become heavily pixalated and distorted, making a weird noise, as if the audio has been caught while it froze. Sometimes the screen goes black and the audio continues as normal for a few seconds, then dies too.

Sometimes a blue screen appears telling me it is dumping physical memory, this scares me , so i usually turn it off quickly.

Im noit sure if the following is correlation or causation, but occasionally this jumping and freezing etc is brought about by me moving the screen of laptop slightly. IT does seem to last longer if i have the laptop some where stationary.

All in all, im very confused, i brought it to a repair shop and he told me it was not the hardrive so must be the motherboard and therefore v.expensive. I didnt really get the trusting vibe off him ,so im worried hes just saying that so i spend big cash with him.

Im trying to decide what the problem is, any ideas?

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone had tried to upgrade their motherboard in a win2000 advanced server.

I have installed win2k advanced server and now I am attempting to upgrade the hardware. Basically I'm taking the harddrive out of one case and putting it in another (more powerful).
When trying to boot up I get the ol' BSOD and have to reboot. I've tried all the recoverable processes that win2k offers when pressing F8 on bootup to no avail. Does I have to use sysdif? Does anyone know how to use it?

Thanks

 

A:{Advice Offered} - Win2k changed motherboard crashes

Greetings

Here is one suggestion which might not work, and another suggest which will:

Suggestion 1:
On the old machine, Boot up Win2K, edit the registry and delete the entire ENUM key in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE tree. These are the registry connections to all your drivers for all your devices. Then shut the machine down, and move the drive. When the drive boots up, it should then try and autodetect all the equipment, and you must then give any driver it does not have. However, I do not think that is a good way to go (even if it does work).

Suggestion2:
I suggest you re-install Win2K, on the new hardware platform.

Essentially, what you are doing is this: You are lifting your house and moving it to a new plot, with a totally different foundation. Now, your house might stand for a while, but not having the right foundation for a house will mean that it will eventually fall over.

So, my suggestion is: Save your data, and re-install. That's the only way to be sure. (paraphrasing Ellen Ripley's famous quote, "I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. That's the only way to be sure." )

I don't know whether I have a malware problem, or a hard-drive-in-death-throes problem, or what. But I figured it was best to start here, so if it's not a virus I can go over to the XP forum with that ruled out.

Over the past few months my desktop has been steadily driving me nuts. First it began giving me BSODs at random intervals, anything from a day to a month apart. (Currently, about once every three weeks.) The most common error is 0x0000008E, but I've also had 0x00000019, 0x00000024, 0x1000000A, 0x0000004E (PFN_LIST_CORRUPT), 0x0000007F, 0x0000000A (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL), and 0x00000050 (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA). Usually it crashes at startup, but it has taken as much as twenty minutes. I've tried defragging the hard drive, using a registry cleaner, and replacing Sygate firewall (see below) but nothing appears to have worked.

Then Sygate starting occasionally crashing while I was online. I replaced it with PC Tools free firewall, which hasn't had any problems. (Yet...)

Somewhere in the last several months (hard to say whether it was before or after Sygate and the BSODs, it seems to have been creeping up for a while) Firefox developed an increasing tendency to hang. It reached the point where it was basically non-functional for a good quarter hour after connecting. During that time doing anything - maximising or minimising windows, accessing the start menu - took forever. Then Firefox started crashing - constantly. I worked my way through the official trou...

I've had a few BSODs lately, and I'm having trouble figuring out what the cause is.

One happened on shutdown. I have recently installed a folding client, which may have something to do with it.

The most recent one happened while gaming.

I'm really not sure what is causing them, and they don't happen very often, but I'd like to eliminate them.

So the only recent changes are that I've installed the folding client. Could it be a temperature issue? I have my 3800 X2 overclocked to 2.2, so I guess I'll set that back down to stock. My processor idles at around 35, and doesn't go over 45.

I should also mention that I've had this computer for about 2 years now, and have never had BSODs before. I upgraded the videocard 5 months ago, but other than that, very little has changed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Basically my copmuter randomly reboots in windows. It can be anything from 10 min to 6 hours. I can find no corellations between the programs i open and the blue screens.
I put my system together myself a week ago. It is:

Asus A8N Premium M.o.b
Athlon 64 4000 CPU
GT 6600 Nvidia SLi graphics cards (just one running in single mode)
2GB of DDR Corsair RAM (a matched pair)
2 western digital HD
3 case fans

I know the CPU, RAM, and M.o.b are compatible because they were bought as a bundle. My CPU temp gets up to about 42 degress my motherboard 37degrees. I have upgraded my PSU to 550 which made no difference. I have run Memetest and my memory passed. Am still running Prime95 but so far no problems.So i am guessing there are no hardware problems.

Last option before i take a sledge hammer to the damn thing in pure frustration is to ask someone with more patience and more knowledge than me. I have uploaded the latest in a long line of minidumps. Hope you can tell me what they are.
Thank you

A:Minidumps

Both dumps indicate a problem finding a page in memory that Windows expects to be there. That doesn't mean that there's a RAM problem, but it's worth testing. It is also just as likely it's a filter driver issue, so making sure all of your drivers for your hardware are running the latest versions available from the vendor, and you test without antivirus, antimalware, firewall, or any other 3rd party filter driver is also good. Minidumps aren't going to help us more than that here, though.

Hi folks,

I have a few questions concerning minidumps because I've never used them. It's been such a long time since I've had any problems with my computer, like a crash or BSOD that I've never been concerned with minidumps.

Today, I remembered having a crash and reboot a couple of months ago without any consequences. So, I decided to check if I had minidump files. I did have one stored. Naturally, I didn't have the proper application to view the file so I took a chance with Notepad to no avail. (now I have the Notepad icon on the file!)

I finally downloaded the Windows Debugging tool X86. But, I'm still not sure how to properly open the minidump file. To open it, I select "Open Crash dump" under File (see attached picture) and navigate to the Minidump folder and open my file. It actually opens but the whole report says that the debugger is not using the correct symbols so I get no report. I only see the end of the report where it says "Probably caused by:".

Can somebody enlighten me on the proper use of this utility?

Thank you all!
