I've been getting alot of BSOD's lately, usually 5 minutes after I log in, I've been getting the following errors:
something about cmaudio.sys

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. It proceeds to shutdown after 30 seconds and then starts back up. when I boot back up to the desktop I have microsofts error report screen shows up and the details of the error report are


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.

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.

Posted with due acknowledgement to the sites ... Read more

A:blue screen of death..... PFN and memory_management ERRORS

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

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.

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).

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.

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;

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.

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...

We recently got a new (used) computer at my office. It's an HP Pavillion a287x, running winXP.
From the get-go, we've been getting blue screen errors, but only after the computers been idle for 10+ minutes or so. When you have websites loaded, or programs running in the background, it's fine, but with programs closed and just the desktop showing, bam, screen goes black like power saver mode, and when you move the mouse, the blue screen of doooooom comes on.
I've checked things, fixed things, (Both from what I've found online, about a problem with certain versions of quicken, and what tech guys we know have said to do) and the errors have changed slightly but it's still saying that a program or file is not being found, or something to that degree. The man who sold it to us is not exactly bright, so maybe he deleted something crucial?

Any ideas? Thanks!

Wipe the hard drive clean and install a fresh copy of XP. If you don't have the CD and can't get it from the person who sold you the computer, you'll need to acquire a copy elsewhere.

Has anyone had this problem before and is there a fix. Makes me want to get a Apple MAC

A:Blue screen of death

If it boots to Safe Mode, but not to normal mode, then it's likely to be a driver that doesn't load in Safe Mode, but does in normal mode.

You state that you've replaced the hard drive. Does Windows still behave the same way (goes into Safe Mode, but not normal mode)?

Try following the instructions here: http://www.techsupportforum.com/1871981-post2.html

If it doesn't work, then post back and we'll go about it a different way.

Good morning I have an EMachines desktop that is less than a year old. Recently I have been experiencing problems. At least twice a day, the computer seizes up and displays the blue screen of death. I will record the error codes and messages next time it happens. Once I restart it, it seems fine albeit slow, and I cannot tell why this is happening. I updated my drivers recently, but it was error free for at least two weeks after, so I do not believe this was the issue. Also I noticed that wmplayer.exe process is always running. I pretty much EXCLUSIVELY use VLC player but still wmplayer stays in memory. When I use task manager to kill the process, it comes back a second later. I scanned with SuperAntispyware and it found nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Dcsontos

I have recently gotten into build/working on computers and have moved some hardware like vid card and a hard drive in a new case with a new
IC7-G Abit mobo with a 2.8ghx p4 processor. I installed a copy of windows Xp that came with a computer i purchased from dell a little while back. Everything was running fine when i woke up one morning with a blue screen of death the error is displayed was IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. It seems to blue screen once maybe twice a day then restarts and runs fine most the time. It does sometimes just freeze up when its running and im not particularly sure if thats the same problem or a whole new one, or infact if they are even related to XP at all. Any help would be appreciated TY.

My laptop crashed with the blue screen of death. I then attempted to run in safe mode, which failed. I then tried to recover Vista which also failed.

Next I tried to re-install Vista from fresh. The white bar loads (which I believe is the drivers loading, then a blank black screen appears and the fans stop running (which indicates the processor has stopped). I get the same problem when trying to install windows xp. I am also unable to boot knoppix or Barts PE.

I have run memtest 98 which was error free. The hard drive has been switched for a new one which didn't help and the cd drive seems to works as it at least starts the reinstall process with vista and xp and also successfully boots memtest 98 from CD.

Is this a motherboard issue and if so how can I be sure before forking out for a new mother board. What tests can I run? What else could it be?

Your help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks :)

You can't be sure of motherboard issues. Manufacturer's don't have anything other than basic tests for them.

We use PCCheck at work (about $400 - $800) and it rarely catches anything. We evaluate motherboard problems by removing all other problems (through Windows reinstallation with WHQL certified drivers and replacing parts with known good ones).

This one was caused by your readyboost. Either readyboost or the win medis streaming service caused a memory exception If you have 4 gigs or more of ram you shouldnt be using it. Windows media sharing service was also running at the time. If you arent streaming media you can also turn it off. How about some system specs?

I got the following blue screen of death twice in the past 2-3 days I have Win XP. When I restarted i was prompted to report an error and was told that my system had recovered for a serious error and was sent to this website but I don't know what to do. Thank you very much for any assistance.


A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.


If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. IF this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup
Options, and then select Safe mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x87000000, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF634FB98)

*** W22n51.sys Address F634FB98 base at F62DC00, Datestamp 40054b01

A:Blue Screen of Death

Hi -

Don't be concerned with the language on the Blue Screen itself. It is general in nature and covers a wide range of possible causes.

Little doubt here that the software install is to blame. I would like you to do two things - about 15-20 minutes of your time.

1. Follow these instructions --> http://www.techsupportforum.com/1871981-post2.html

Attach the resulting zip file to your next post.

2. Run a Windows 7 system restore -
START | type rstrui - choose a restore point prior to the install

Regrds. . .
