Hey, I keep getting the Blue Screen of Death on my year-and-a-half old PC. It always says something about a hardware or software error, but I have no new hardware or software on my computer. (Well, I have a DSL modem I just got in September, but I already spoke to them about this, and we should have fixed the problem if it was the modem.) Also, for the last few months I keep getting a DLL error message when I log onto my computer it mentions C:\PROGRA~1\NEWDOT~1\NEWDOT~2.DLL
Any help anyone has on these subjects would be greatly appreciated.

Windows XP Pro loaded as an os. The problem I keep having is from time to time my pc crashes and gives me a blue screen with than error message stating that windows has detected an error and will shutdown.

So ....it doesn't seem like it affects anything but I am tired of it just crashing. It does it probably once every week. I tried the registry but nothing jumped out at me.

Device manager also shows no conflicts.

A:BSOD(Blue Screen Of Death) Errors

Just a thought... Have you noticed whether the system crashes ON THE SAME DAY once a week, or at the same time of day? If so, there may be some background app that's causing the error. Check Task Manager, anti-virus, etc. for any timed tasks.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption probably your Symantec. I would remove it to test FIRST. If you continue to crash run these.

Symantec is a frequent cause of BSOD's. I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

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 a Raid update its Driver.


*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 5-7 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

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 W... Read more

One of the most dreaded events for people asking for help on this site is the BSOD (Blue screen of Death).

The first task is to find out what the STOP code means. That is only the start, as it is then necessary to establish the meaning of the parameters. Those are the four codes contained in (brackets) that follow the STOP error and indicate, amongst other aspects, the type of error and where it occurred

Frequently the BSOD cannot be read, as the computer enters a reboot cycle. If this is the case, usually by tapping F8 immediately after the post screen, will get you to the Advanced Boot Options.
You can then select - Disable Restart on failure.

There are a number of sites where STOP errors may be searched.
However I think it useful to have a list of some of the sites in one place.

1. A Microsoft site containing details of most STOP codes. The Search can be used to locate the appropriate one.

2. PC Support



5. MarcLiron.com

6. Labmice.net

7. Microsoft Support Centre.

8. InternetFixes

Together, these sites provide information for possibly ALL the Stop Codes encountered.

Lately, I have been having constant stop errors. They appear different each time. I've noticed that the problem gets worse when I launch Windows Media Player. I dont have information on the stop error codes, but I will get them as soon as possible.
I reall need some help. The codes seem to appear at random, and sometimes there are several in sucession. After an exceptionally large bout of Blue Screens of Death, I get messages saying "windows has recovered from a serious error". All the error reports I send come back corrupted. What is wrong???
Any advice on getting rid of the blue screens of death, or the corrupted errors would be helpful... Thanks.
PS. I seem to be having the same problem with Windows Media player. It doesnt stay open very long before it closes saying "Windows Media Player has encountered an error and needs to close. This problem is especially bad when I am ripping CD's. Often, after several of these messages, a blue screen of death appears.
Is there any thing I can do?

Greetings! I will try to be as specific about my problem in general.
I am using a Compaq laptop, using Windows XP. I don't know much more than that, but I can search for additional information regarding specs and stuff.

It all started one day when I was browsing the internet using the latest version of Firefox. I turned up my volume and the blue screen of death appeared (advising me to seek tech support of sorts).

I restarted, and yet again touching the volume yielded the blue screen of death. I tried several, possibly 6 times, and the only thing causing the blue screen of death is altering the volume in any way, including touching the volume buttons, adjusting volume in the volume control and adjusting the wave settings in volume control.

So I ran Spyware Doctor. I do pay the full 40 bucks a year for this wonderful program, and it detected a bunch of freaky looking things. Like adaware, something called virtumonde, and all these high threat viruses and adware, but it wiped them clean. I ran it again, it found 3 more standard viruses that it didn't name, cleaned them, ran SWD again and nothing appeared, so I assume now my computer is free from whatever was messing with me.

The volume problem still persists though, and also at random times the blue screen of death will appear (I'm praying now it won't as I type all this or I'll cry).

Then another problem occurred. When I try to open a file of sorts, that pesky message appears- windows explorer has... Read more

I got the occasional blue screen of death before, so I reset to factory settings. It didn't help, and may have made the issue even worse, though I haven't used the computer much since I just got a laptop. I have windows 7 64 bit. I had gotten the haplii virus (which redirects my google searches to a different site, it later changed to link to a different site instead) and failed to remove that completely, so I am not sure if that could be causing it or no.

I have tested the hard drive and RAM (using the built-in windows 7 memory utility, not memtest, as I have no blank CDs), and it isn't that.

A:Blue Screen of Death errors continue after restoring factory settings

Start by updating the "NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller" and the "NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet" driver.

Also Install SP1 and replace McAfee with Microsoft Security Essentials.

My computer was infected by the Virus Remover 2008 Trojan in addition to Vimax attack ads and i suspect Other viruses I can't find. On January second this caused the computer to freeze wile a zone alarm scan was still running upon restarting i was able to bypass the virus and install trials Avast Protector plus and adaware. I ran scans with each and manually deleted all the Virus Remover 2008 files but even with it gone the desktop and start menu disappeared every twenty seconds or so. I ran Kaspersky Online scanner 7 and found I had a Trojan.Win32.Monder.ahbh and four other infections. I erased the only visible Trojan from my registry and when I reset the computer the desktop stopped flickering. Later today while I was running an adaware scan the text on Firefox started to disappear randomly and I got the blue screen of death.

I will start explaining my most urgent problem, then move on to the saga of my RAM. Before I begin though, some information about my PC. I am running MS Vista Basic edition, with service pack 1 & 2 installed. I have a ASUS Maximus Extreme motherboard, and I currently have 2 RAM types installed (more on the why of that later).

One set of memory: G.SKILL Trident 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory

The fourth stick of memory is: Crucial Ballistix 1GB (1 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model

I'll explain the why of 2 different memory types now. I have 2 sticks of the crucial memory. My system was constantly overheating for a while (I would get forced resets and a Over Temperature error on boot up). This most likely damaged the memory. So I bought some fans and new RAM, the G.SKILL Trident stuff. Only when I try to start my computer with that RAM, it seems to start but I won't get anything from the monitor. There are no beeps from the computer though, it seems to start normally. But when I have 1 stick of the Crucial memory and the 3 Trident sticks in, it starts just fine.

On to my most urgent problem. When I install the RAM, all of the memory detects. At some point (I don't know when) it will drop down to detecting 3 gigs instead of 7. If I move around the Crucial memory, it will all detect again for a while, then go back to 7 gigs. As I am an avid gamer, 3 ... Read more

In need of serious help.*
To begin, I am stupid and haven't backed up any of my files so for now a windows reinstall is out of the question. (unless it's completely necessary) okay, so the problem: I was using my computer as normal. Then while on Google Chrome, it started getting slow and said "not responding" this happens all the time, to everyone so I waited and then the dreaded Blue screen of death appeared. Didn't get a look at what it said because it shut down almost immediately. After that it loaded as normal? Which is weird, I think. But got stuck after startup on the black screen of death. All I have is a cursor. Can't do ctrl+alt+del, can't load any of the safe modes. When I go on startup repair, it says "no restore points" on system restore and "could not detect a problem" on system repair or whatever it's called. There must be something to fix this?! :/ I live in hope that the whole system doesn't need to be wiped clean because as I said, I stupidly haven"t backed up my files.*

Can anyone help?? Please?

Hello everyone.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L450D-13X computer for the kids, and for the price it's a good laptop. Have had no issues with it until two weeks ago when the screen froze for the boys whilst playing a game and downloading a program from the net. Had to do a force shutdown and since then we have a BSoD on every boot-up. This is what we have tried:

On 'Starting Windows' we are given an option of either 'Launch Startup Repair' which ends up as BSoD or 'Start Windows Normally' which reverts back to the 'Starting Windows' option list.
Any attempt to enter 'Safe Mode' results in BSoD.
Attempting to boot an ISO of the Windows Recovery Disk on a USB key (we did highlight it and promote it to the top) results in BSoD. Borrowing a proper Window 7 installation DVD and highlighting this as an option results in BSoD.

In fact, the only option we used that threw up something different was using advanced boot options. On one of these options we got the Blue Screen of Death with the following information:

Disable Bios Memory Options such as caching/shadowing

Tech info

Stop: 0x000000ED (0xFFFFFA80023C2CDO 0xFFFFFFFFC0000185 0x0000000000000000 0x0000000000000000)

I don't mind erasing the hard drive and starting again, there's nothing on it that's critical. I'd very, very much appreciate a steer on this. Checked the web for stuff and nothing seems to assist in any other options. I am not particularly tech literate but can follow instructions.

Today I booted my computer up to be promoted with a black screen, I gave it a good half an hour before forcing it to shutdown, to which when I booted it back up. Was then promoted with a blue screen about the video card not being able to lead, that happened twice.

I then booted it into safe mode, fiddled around with the drivers to see what was going on, after restarting it again, I got the same black screen, this kept on happening. I then concluded my best solution was to install XP, this worked the video card runs. So the card is not dead, but there are multiple blue lines going down the screen in 4 columns. After going into the device manager I saw that it claimed it was not installed, then I went to Google and downloaded the driver, after installing the computers goes to the same black screen that I got on windows 7.

I have no clue what the problem is, so any help would be most appreciated. Also I tried installing Linux, but after getting though then loading screen of the installer, it goes to the black screen. At the moment in am on my tablet so sorry if there are so many mistakes. I'll try and get some photos of how it looks.

Hi Sean,

I don't like to say it, but it sounds like the graphics card is dead. I had the same issue on an old 8800gts, it would work until I installed the drivers, then I would get very bad artifacts/lines down the screen.
I tried it on 2 different PC's with the same end result once the drivers were installed.

Hi, thanks for checking my question. I haven't found an answer to my particular situation:

Dell xps m1430 laptop w/vista (32).

It all started with a blue screen w/scrolling text after the fated restart. The blue screen text said "if this is the first time you've seen this message..." and then comp restarted, again showing the blue screen, then restarted into windows repair mode, after repair mode tried to fix the problem comp restarted, then the screen went black / blank right after the little windows loading animation (where the bar keeps moving from left to right and there's a small windows logo).
It all happened fast, so there may have been steps I forgot, but that's the jist of it.

Now screen always goes black / blank during startup after the windows loading animation, so I can't start windows in normal mode.
I can start in safe mode if I manually force shutdown by holding the power button, so I'm not imploding with fear... ok I am.

Possible causes:
1. This occured right after installing 11 vista updates (that restart was when I saw the blue screen)

2. Also occured the restart after running a patch called "Vista TCP/IP and UAC AutoPatch 6.0" I downloaded it from softpedia, the developer was listed as defcon, and their website listed was securevista.net, but the site is down(I found this out after the problem occured).

I have a Dell Latitude 5175 (Core m5-6Y57, 8GB ram, 256GB SSD) which bluescreens during full screen video playback such as Netflix or Windows media player with a Driver_power_state_failure, it doesn't happen straight away but usually after around 10-15 minutes usage.

I checked the minidump file which suggested the Intel graphics card driver was to blame, I updated that to the latest one from Dell which made no difference, updated the chipset driver, bios and then installed the latest graphics card driver from Intel again with no difference, if anything it's worse now.  The issue also occurs when the tablet is docked or when it's not docked although in normal day to day usage, it seems fine.

I've found references to this problem on some other machines, noticeably the Surface Pro 4's but not really any solution.  The next step is to try a clean build but thought I'd see if there's anything else I can try first.  The machine is out of warranty and while it's always occurred I've just lived with it as I incorrectly through the PC had a three year warranty.

Before i describe the problem i would like to make it clear that i would like to recover as much as possible. This problem occurred playing a game called Empires V2.1. It is a steam half 2-death match mod. I had problems in the past however i didn't not consider them problems the screen froze when the game changed map. However when it froze it wouldn't respond to Ctrl+Alt+Delete or Ctrl+Esc or the start menu button. I pressed the power button and restarted it that way. However this is when the problem occurs and i can't over come it. It starts with a normal dell screen and the loading bar crosses at the bottom as normal. Then it goes to a black page with a blue line across the top with white writing saying www.dell.com. A line (programming maybe it appears and disappears rapidly). It then goes to a black screen saying something along the lines of We are sorry for the inconvenience but windows failed to start properly. It then gives you options and no matter which option I choose I still get a blue of screen of death saying the following;

Hi, I've been going through some problems with windows, I'll try to be the more clear and organized I can, let's start with my config and the symptoms I'm getting:PC Config:Core2Duo E6550GA P35 DS3 (rev.2.0)2x 1GB DDR2 800Mhz Kingston (in dual channel)GeForce 7200GS 256mb (512mb with turbo cache)HD321KJ Samsung Hard DriveSamsung SH-S203B DVD driveCorsair VX450W Power SupplyOS: Windows XP Pro x64 SP2 (I upgraded to sp2 just yesterday, before that I was running sp1)Symptoms: There are three types of symptoms, the most common is the pc simply restarting, note that I've already disabled the "automatically restart" in the system properties window and it keeps happening, other is the screen freezing, and then I have to restart it, and the last and less common is the famous Blue Screen of Death, also, but for only two times, instead of the freeze or the blue screen I got an empty black screen. All these types of crashes can happen independently of what I'm doing, It has happened while burning dvds with Nero, scanning with anti-virus, browsing the net, or even while I'm asleep and only the bittorrent client is up. Though, there is one peculiarity I think should be important, there's one program, the VirtualDubMod (build 2540/release), which is used for various kinds of video manipulating jobs, that every time I'm enconding a video with it, there is a crash, and I'm convinced it's not only coincidence, cause I have tried a...

I have a computer running Windows 7. Last night the computer was running fine. This morning when I turn it on, i get a black screen. To fix the problem I conducted a system restore. After it finished restoring, the computer restarts and everything worked fine. To make sure if everything was in working order, I restart it again. After the "Starting Windows" screens comes up, I get the Blue Screen of Death. I can't even read what the error says because the computer just restarts itself. I did not connect anything new to the computer. I performed a hardware diagnostics to see if it was a hardware failure but no error was found. I can't even get into safe mode. The SFC.exe will be my next step.

I was uploading songs from my CDs to iTunes and all of a sudden my computer froze and Control alt delete did not work. Soooo I pushed the power button and when the computer came back on it was acting weird and starting up slowly. Finally a screen came on that said "Problem caused by file partmgr.sys PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" and some more stuff. I can open it in safe mode (though it takes like 10 min to start up). Any help??

A:Blue Screen of Death... please help!!

"nonpaged area" usually means ram and not the hard drive -- but the driver that is crashing also suggests there could be corruption of the disk itself.

I'd certainly backup now before things get worse. I'd also run a ram test (you can try removing modules if you have more than one) and run chkdsk on the drive. Drive diagnostic utilities are also available from disk drive vendors -- and it might be worthwhile to run one. If it fails and the drive is under warranty -- that's good enough to get it replaced.

Since almost all bugchecks can be caused by faulty ram, I would recommend you perform memory tests.

Hello nitevision

There are quite a few causes of that error, but yes, test the memory first to eliminate it.

If you have more than one stick of RAM (256MB or more) swap them over or take one out and try again with only stick #1. If it does not help or makes things worse swap the sticks and try again with only stick #2. This will identify if you have a bad stick.

You can put either of these free programs on a floppy and test the RAM. Let them run for hours to do many passes if you can

I would be very grateful if anyone could help me. A couple of days ago, my computer was working fine, and then suddenly the screen went blue and an error flashed up - this made the computer shut down and reboot. This happened again when I turned the computer back on. Eventually it seemed to return to normal, but now my desktop is a light blue colour and the blue screen keeps coming back. I went into the advanced section in System Recovery and turned off the instant restart so I could see the details of the message.

My error says:

A propbelm has been detected...


Check any new hardware is properly installed...

***STOP: 0x0000019 0x0000200.0xEID76E48.0XEID77780. 0XID2791ED

I use Windows XP Professional 2003. Unfortunately, I do not know where my installation discs are.

I have seen posts on some other forums that say this is memory corruption and can be easlily fixed, but I'm not sure of the best way to fix this. My computer seems to be working OK apart from the blue desktop background (which I cannot change!) and sometimes the error flashes up and tries to reboot the computer again - but this is less frequent.

If anybody could help I would be very grateful. If you need any more information, or of I have left anything out please let me know!

A:blue screen of death

You don't remove blue screens. Blue screen .dmp files provide clues as to what is causing the stop. Often it's a driver that is causing the problem. Often just error checking the drive fixes it. START > My Computer > Right click a hard drive > Select "Properties" > Tools > Error Checking > Check now > check "automatically fix file system errors" and "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors". You will have to restart your PC and it may take 1/2 an hour or more depending on the size of your drive.
Go to C:/Windows/minidump and post the most recent minidump files. Right click and then click properties to see dates. Or use the freeware BlueScreenView to analyze the files. Look where it says "probably caused by" and let us know what files are causing it.

I'm having problems with restarting my computer. If I try to restart my computer it tries to reboot and then I get the blue screen of death and then another screen saying I have a bad disk. It give me 9 seconds to press a button to ignore or it will check all the disks. If I let it check the disks it just shuts off and I can't turn it on for half an hour. So every time I start my computer I have to hurry and press a button before it crashes. I've gotten this before:

Hi there. I reinstalled windows 7 yesterday and have been getting blue screens ever since. I'm not too sure if it is important but I have the upgrade disc, I upgraded from Windows XP Media Center Edition to Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. The BSOD come at different intervals (although none before I can actually log in and do stuff) and although I've not been able to catch exactly what the error codes are I have noticed that they have been different each time. I have attatched the dump files and health report to my thread and any insight would be very much appreciated.

PC Specs:

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600)
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9550 @ 2.83GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
System Model: P5Q DELUXE

Memory: 4096MB RAM
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series

It's a custom build, no older than 18months (all parts bought at the same time). If any addition information is needed let me know and I'll get it uploaded ASAP. Thanks in advance.
