Blue screen of death B590

Q: Blue screen of death B590

Hello. I recently started getting a lot of BSOD's with the 0xdeaddead code. I went through all fixes I could find online but they still appeared. I reinstalled my network driver twice, since that was the problem with the most people.

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.)


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?

A:Stuck on black screen of death, after blue screen of death

this sounds like it should be a BSOD thread, post a seperate thread in the BSOD section following the posting instructions for BSODs, make sure you include the dump files, if you don't know how to do that, it should tell you in the BSOD posting instructions.

Last month, kept getting blue screen of death with various errors at bottom: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Been happening sporadically before but amped up last month for a few days. Stopped until last night, this time I got an orange screen of death and the error was CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION (win32kfull.sys).

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). The patch had lots of positive reviews, and lots of people on other sites also suggest using it to re... Read more

Just today, I turned on my computer and got the blue screen of death, so I restarted my PC. Then a black screen came up saying "Windows could not start beacuse the following file is missing or corrupt : \windows\system32\config\system."

You can attempt to repair this file by putting the winxp cd in etc...

Now when i turn on my computer there is just a black screen showing, with nothing at all on it.

Any ideas anyone?

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.

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.

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...

A:blue screen of death!!

Well, the first thing to do is not to panic. The computer might not be working, but it is fixable compared to your state of mind...

The next thing we need to know is the exact details of the BSOD. If you can supply any error codes, and any drivers/files that it might reference, that would be helpful.

It may indeed turn out that you need to do a repair install. Your friend's programs and files should stay intact, but it would be best if they had a backup of their files. If you can, take the hard drive out and connect it to another machine as a slave drive. That should allow you to copy files across with minimal worry over a BSOD.

I keep getting a BSOD with this message:


I have not actually found the culprit, but I know that the file that is giving the error ends in .sys

It only seems to happen when I'm on Facebook loading a flash game like Frontierville, or another kind of application, and at the same time loading another website in a tab.

Normally I can have a video on youtube buffering, Limewire in the background playing music, a game on windowed mode, and no problem, but as soon as you introduce a Facebook application into the mix, my screen goes pixelated and if music is playing in the background, it just loops and loops until it hits the BSOD.

I'm guessing it's something to do with flash, but I'd like an expert opinion on this.

Thanks for an replies!

It's been working perfectly, no problems at all, until a couple of days ago. I was trying to start my computer in safe mode... but as it was loading the drivers for safe mode it would stop and restart saying that windows did not start properly and have to restart to save my computer. I fished around in microsoft support and it said that safe mode does not work with usb device (which my explorer mouse is) so I attatched the serial connector... restarted again, and I got a notice in my task bar that a new device had been found... and then that the drivers were installed for that device. Then I tried to restart my pc in safe mode... and it gave me the blue screen of death... the IRQL_LESS_OR_EQUAL error and the stop error 0x0000000A (0xF79A4354, 0x000000FF, 0x00000001, 0x804FE811) which to my understanding has something to do with a piece of hardware being faulty or incompatible. So I figured it was the mouse... because that was the only thing that I changed that day as far as hardware goes. About a week ago I added two sticks of RAM but I had no problems with my system. I don't know what to do about this because my pc won't do anything now. I can't start it in safe mode... and I can't start it at all no matter what I try. I NEED HELP and if there is anyone out there who can give it it would be greatly appriciated... ... Read more

Please go to www.memtest.org, download the program and test your RAM.

0x24 errors can be due to many things that is either hardware or software related. Do the following.

1. Start Menu > Run > type in ChkDsk and hit okay.

2. Run a full harddrive diagnostics; you can get a free utility from your harddrive manufacturer. if you don't know the make of your harddrive you can download a wonderful little utility that is 100% free called SIW (just google). Install and let it run. On the left will be a column. Click on the Storage Devices icon. It will list the make of your HD.

3. After, not before, you've run your HD diagnostics and there are no errors then defrag your HD, not before.

I have been a windows user since my intro to computers and I built a system about a yr ago with 2 300 gig hd's. I have XP pro on my #1 drive and recently did a trial with vista on the #2 drive both sata. I came across freespire and had always heard good things about Linux but had always been leary of going away from what i was familiar with in windows. I'd always been able to choose which OS i wanted to boot up in BIOS. Anyway, I formatted the drive that i had vista installed on by using the format option when right clicking on that drive in my computer. And without much research I burned a copy of the freespire iso and installed it on the #2 drive. My first problem came about when I couldn't boot to the XP OS any longer. Grub was defaulting to the freespire. In a near panic I decided to format the #2 drive again and see if I could then boot up XP
This didn't work either, as grub remained embedded in the system and all I could get was a black screen of columns of "grub". I then went googling for an answer and came up with the Gparted boot program. After running the gparted live cd I was still unable to boot into XP and continued to get the black screen of grub. In my desperation I decided to format drive #1 and reinstall XP. I got near the end of the reinstall of XP and when it did the final restart before completing that's when I got the first Stop error screen. After a couple times of trying to repair the installation, i've given up and ... Read more

LOL, I know it's not funny to you, but I liked the part about the sledgehammer...I understand that feeling .My first impression...you've done so much that I have no clue how to undo...that I would simply say...strart over.I would delete every partition on the hard drive, write off whatever is installed if I had no backups (I keep backups)...and just take a second or two to figure out what I wanted to do and in what order.You seem to be reactive when you should be planning before acting.And...before I installed any sort of multi-boot, I would read up on the best way to do it, the order, etc.Then I would do it, slowly, with ease, because I don't like mysteries on my systems when I'm trying to get them to function.My best guess would be that your actions have somehow hosed various partitions, which is why I recommend treating them like trash.But, I don't know.In any case, there are lessons to be learned from this, I think.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324103I don't know if you've dealt with STOP errors before...but they are just technical ways of saying "I've had enough!" The procedures for troubleshooting are further proof of that.I think you are way past the point of trying to repair a Windows install, you just need to write it off as a learning experience and start over.By the time you tried to check the various things that are on the troubleshooting procedure, you could easily have just started with a clean slate, did all the ...

I bought a computer from a computer builder, and now I have some problems. I can't get it to start. When I turn it on it goes directly to a black page where I get the options "Launch Startup Repair" or "Start Windows Normally". Both actions lead to the same Bluescreen, however if I choose the startup repair it gets stuck on the bluescreen, if I choose normal startup I get a quick (less than a second) image of the bluescreen before it reboots itself. 
This is the error I get:
I've tried resetting BIOS by taking out the battery, tried removing all the memory units, also tried booting it without the graphics card. The computer does not have a CD-reader or I could've tried booting from CD, and I dont have Windows 7 on a memory stick either.
I tried downloading Windows 7 from Pirate Bay, but I am not very tech savvy, although I can work my way around a computer I am not fully educated in this. So if someone can look past the obvious "its not legal so you shouldn't do it" and help me boot from a USB or something I'd be very grateful. 
Anyone have any suggestions of what I can do? The computer wont even start in Safe Mode. I tried and it loaded all the neccesary files, then started to load and went straight to bluescreen, again.

For some unknown reason I'm now getting the blue screen of death when I boot up my computer (a hp pavilion 760n that came with xp home edition, and which hides a portion of its 120gb hard drive for system recovery), but this is the first time it's missed up like this, since I put professional and I now want to go back to home since I no longer have a professional cd, but for some reason the f10 button that I've always used to bring up the recovery is not responding, and I was wondering if there were any other ways of getting to the backed up recovery files, Thank You in advance, and I hope I can fix this problem soon.

hi there, i have seen lots of blue screens whilst playin world of warcraft.
it is usually IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. i checked for solutions, updated drivers and even got a friend to run Ram test which said everything was fine.
however the game kept crashing, and then said i had corrupt game files.
when i tried to reinstall WOW, i got a message saying that there could be a problem with my C:/.
after putting in the CD, to see if WOW worked with it in the CD drive i got a message something like PFN_LIST_CORRUPT
i have also had windows messenger, steam freezes/stop responding and internet explorer doesnt work on my user - i am admin.
my setup is:-
intel q6600 CPU
XFX 8800GT alpha dog
2GB OCZ enhaned banwith PC6400
Windows Vista Ultimate
i have also had trouble with updates, but i think this is a microsoft problem and not just my PC.

any help/advice and i would be extremely grateful - hopefully no windows reinstall

btw i am a bit of a PC noob

cheer john

A:Blue Screen of Death :(

0x0000004E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT -- This indicates that the memory management Page File Number list is corrupted. Can be caused by corrupt physical RAM, or by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists.

* This error is a good indication that your issue is with corrupted memory.

Therefore, go to www.memtest.org and download their free utility that is used to test RAM. Either choose the floppy disk version or ISO to burn to a CD. After you get it on a floppy or CD...

1. Go into your BIOS which you can get to when you boot up and press the Del ket. If it gets to the Windows splash screen you will need to reboot and immediately start pressing the Del key.

2. Your BIOS screen will come up. Look for the boot sequence screen. You'll want to place either your floppy drive or your CD/DVD drive as first bootable. This means when the system starts up it can access where you placed MemTest.

3. Reboot with the floppy or CD already in place. The test will take over. This takes a long time and it needs to run through a minimum of 7 passes.

4. Any errors and you have RAM that needs to be replaced.

I also suggest you read the sticky here by Julio entitled "Before you post your minidumps..."

Hi,Seems that many people are having BSOD.I have been having may BSOD since last few months. I got approximatly 4-5 BSOD in 2 months. This is how it happened, when I was running AVG 8.0 anti-virus while surfing on the internet all of a sudden the blue screen pops up saying something like: "the system needs to shut down to prevent damage, begginng dumping physical memory." Also every since I got the first BSOD, i've noticed that when I download something that is about 12mb it takes up like 100 mb from my C: drive, sometimes when I even download a small small small file that is only like 3mb it uses about 100mb from my C: Before I had 20.8GB, after I downloaded Ad-aware and Spybot S&D it decreased to 19.2 GB. Now it's 18.8 GB.I have read many topics regarding BSOD, and it still happens, but not occasionaly.Can someone help, also how do you copy the BSOD error code?? Regards,Extremeboy

A:Blue Screen Of Death

There are at least 2 ways to initially approach getting info on BSODs: a. If there is a printed message onscreen, write it down exactly as it appears. b. Lacking an onscreen message, users can try to trace BSOD info in Event Viewer.One thing that everyone probably ought to do on a system: Disable Auto Reboot On System Crash - http://www.theeldergeek.com/auto_reboot_on_system_crash.htm The reason? To give users a better chance at getting valuable data which may aid in troubleshooting system issues.If auto reboot is enabled, many times there will not necessarily be any documentation on what the error was, details, etc....because there wasn't sufficient time for XP's mechanism to record what happened (as opposed to rebooting). Disabling that provides XP a chance to document.Event Viewer is probably (IMO)...the most useful troubleshooting tool which XP has, since it will often provide info leading to ideas about what to do to resolve problems. But, if it's not used...users just wind up guessing or unable to guess what needs adjustment.Louis

I built myself an expensive rig, and I am overclocking it. I've had the blue screen of death allot lately. I've always been able to figure out the problem, so there are no worries. All I'm wondering is if the BlueScreen will hurt your hardware or damage the code in the operating system, or is it just an incident that in no way affects the computer later?

First time I am seeing the BSoD, system specs are in profile, uploaded Reports.
I installed Teamspeak 3 and was playing Bad company 2, have no problems with any other games. It did this to me 3 times in a row.

No overclocking, temps are fine, Ive run a CHKDSK /R everything is good to go and was about to run a memcheck but I don't have the time right now.

Correct me if I am wrong but if it was the memory shouldnt I be seeing this at random times, even when idle, and not just in this one instance?

If I forgot anything let me know.

Any help would be great, thanks ahead of time.

All your dump files point to 0x124 error, it usually related to hardware error but can also caused by 3rd driver.
I suggest you to uninstall Gigabyte EasyTune6 driver because it have some issues with Windows 7.

If the problem persist, then follow this troubleshooting steps:

From the looks of your minidumps I'm thinking you have a problem either with bad ram or your hard disk or its controllers

One dump indicates "memory corruption"; another shows the faulting module as "ataport.sys"

Another is a core system driver "win32k.sys" which can be caused just about by anything, but the STOP type is 7A, which is discussed here and looks also like a drive issue >> http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/ms793989.aspx

BugCheck 7A, {92c037d0, c0000185, 2ba05864, 936f426c}

Unable to load image \SystemRoot\System32\win32k.sys, Win32 error 2Click to expand...
>> 0xC0000185, or STATUS_IO_DEVICE_ERROR, is caused by improper termination or defective cabling on SCSI devices, or two devices attempting to use the same IRQ.
To test the ram run mdsched.exe read the additional info and run the extended tests.

Also, run eventvwr.msc and look at the Windows > system log for NTFS, atapi, or volsnap errors which indicate drive problems.

If you cannot resolve the problem yourself, contact the computer vendor and start talking about warranty support.

It's possible the drive is not making good contact inside the case.

Hi RustyBucket,  Sorry this happened to you. If it were me, there are two things I would do: 1) Try to run a full recovery from the Hard Drive. You can access the Recovery options before the PC boots to Windows. Here are instructions for this:http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-22-b000-All-in-One-Desktop-PC-series/10734597/model/11875100/... 2) If Recovery doesn't work, I would take it back to the store where I got to see if I could get a replacement. Or I would contact HP to have them repair the PC. This option would take the time to ship it to HP though and have them send it back.
