I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My computer suddenly crashed twice today .
Looking at the event viewer :
The first time it crashed said :
The previous system shutdown at 15:33:17 on ‎24/‎06/‎2016 was unexpected.
The second time :
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
My computer crashes and comes back on , like a normal restart .

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.

Thank you.

We need the actual dmp file

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.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

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.

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.

I am having trouble with my PC:
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

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,

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.

My Computer started experiencing BSOD every once in a while about 3 weeks ago, and it has progressively gotten worse, to the point where it is crashing/restarting 10+ times in a day.

I am having several unexpected crashes on my Windows 7 Home Premium. The following items just stop working or crash:
HP Simple Pass 2011, Flash Player (using newest versions of Flash Player and Firefox), AMD-ATI Video Driver, Screen Saver, and Windows Explorer when I go to System>View amount of Ram and processor speed, and Firefox. All of these have started crashing and I have no idea why. 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

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

Please do this:

Upload Dump Files:
Please go to C:\Windows\Minidump and zip up the contents of the folder. Then upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
Left click on the first minidump file.
Hold down the "Shift" key and left click on the last minidump file.
Right click on the blue highlighted area and select "Send to"
Select "Compressed (zipped) folder" and note where the folder is saved.
Upload that .zip file with your next post.

If you have issues with "Access Denied" errors, try copying the files to your desktop and zipping them up from there. If it still won't let you zip them up, post back for further advice.

If you don't have anything in that folder, please check in C:\Windows for a file named MEMORY.DMP. If you find it, zip it up and upload it to a free file hosting service (not RapidShare as the analysts usually can't download from it) - then post the link to it.
Then, follow the directions here to set your system for Minidumps (much smaller than the MEMORY.DMP file): Set MiniDump

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

Here's my problem: After plugging in my external WD hard drivemy computer rebooted unexpectedly. I don't know if it was the external hdd's fault. After the reboot I noticed a weird error message in the event log. It says: The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000008e (0xc0000005, 0x80536943, 0xba46288c, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini082310-01.dmp.

Event-ID: 1001, Event Source: Save Dump

What does this mean? It only occured once (*knocks on wood*) after plugging in my external hard drive, but the 2nd time I plugged it in it seemed to work fine.

The HDD is an external Western Digital WDE1U5000N and I use Windows XP (SP3) Media Center Edition. I don't know what to do. I use the HDD for backups and it made some problems a few weeks ago. My 2nd computer does NOT recognize the drive. It just spins up, fails to get recognized and spins down again. When I tried to defragment it, it just made a stupid clicking sound.

My computer is 3 years old, this is the first BSOD (or Save Dump error message) I received.
Can someone help me, please? Could the error be related to the external HDD?

God bless.

Hi, new to this forum, so excuse me if I leave something out. I have a 4-year-old HP Pavilion DV 7t-2200 running Win 7 SP1, restored to factory image in July 2010, recently restored to an image from close to that time and updated. For at least 6 months, and probably longer, the computer has been shutting down unexpectedly. Currently it's doing so every few days. The shutdowns almost always happen overnight when no one is using the computer. The computer has a Core 2 Duo chip, video is ATI Radion Mobility 4500/5100 series, don't have info about the motherboard or power supply. The computer does run hot at times - I have cleaned out the vents, but not taken it apart to check the heat sink - but it isn't crashing when running hot during the daytime. I'm attaching the perfom report and the other report you requested. Thanks for any help you can give me.

A:[SOLVED] Unexpected shutdowns

Looked at the minidump file, and for the most part it says it's a driver power state failure - not sure how you can tell what the driver is. Although... there were also a couple of crashes due to system service exception Any help would be appreciated. Frequency of BSODs seems to be increasing.

A:[SOLVED] Vista Unexpected Shutdown

Hi. . .


Please download the attached zip file and extract the batch and exe file to your desktop. Go to your desktop, right-click on the batch file and select run as administrator. You will see the black "DOS" screen appear and scroll, the green status bar screen then the AutoRuns viewer screen - let it scan (look on bottom-left for status - "scanning..."). When AutoRuns is finished, the screen will close. The batch job will take several minutes to run. It will dump the app and system logs, run AutoRuns, msinfo32, dxdiag, driver listings, etc...

The output will be in a new folder found within your documents folder named TSF_Vista_Support. Zip the contents of the new folder up and attach to your next post.

It is imperative that you run the batch job via right-click/admin level, otherwise it will not have the necessary permission to obtain the dump files nor the dump files.

Any ? - please let me know.

Regards. . .

Only when I am playing games like Call of Duty : Modern warfare 2, left 4 dead, Mass Effect 1 & 2, does this problem occurs.... No specific time...it may happen in an hour or maybe after 4 hours.....Screen will turn blank as if monitor has been switched off....and buzzing noise will come up...like a sound loop....monitor power light will indicate it is on but soon will become flickering on off as it has gone to sleep mode....Cabinet light will indicate pc is on...but hdd light will be off...indicating no hdd activity....Keyboard and mouse will hang up...keyboard capsock light will not change as per capslock key presses..Now this problem will go away if I play with the chassis case being left open For sure.......if the problem occurs,not always but sometimes bios will give cpu overtemperature error...or just simply says bios default has been loaded......most of the time none of the two will occur....cpu temperature issue has been resolved...Noctua Nh-U12P SE2 cpu cooler has got installed now..with my cpu temperature never exceeding 62C with coretemp logging cpu temperature . But the problem persists with decreased frequency.....Still problem crops up and chassis has to be kept open to avoid problem...as usual event log does not points to anything ...just previous shutdown was unexpected......how do I resolve this

I experienced random BSOD 8 months ago. From here, i got help with that, and found my one ram was faulty and the graphic driver was backdated.
But I solved those and nothing happened in last 8 months. Today suddenly this afternoon, i experienced a quick bsod and the pc restarted itself. All i did recently is -

installed a adsl modem yesterday (that cant be the problem i think)
and installed ubuntu on a empty logical partition in morning. That's all.
Attaching the dump files.

I tested my WD hdd with wd's diagnostic tool and tested the ram with memtest86+ just one week ago. All were healthy.

I have my DELL Inspiron 6400 Laptop with VISTA Home for more than 3 years and it has been an excellent machine. The Laptop is connected to a power bar along with my wireless modem and every night before I go to bed I close the Laptopís cover and switch the power bar off.

Next day, I just switch the power on from the power bar, open the Laptopís cover, the screen comes on to type my access password and Iím at my Desktop like the night before (I donít leave any programs open)

In the last 3 or 4 months however something has change. When I turn the power bar on and open the Laptopís cover, the screen to type my password sometimes doesnít come on; I have to press the ON button on the laptop (which mean the Laptop will re boot), then it takes a very long time (about 3-4 minutes) to boot which is very unusual, then I get the screen to type my access password, and then I get this screen which says ďThe computer recovered from an unexpected errorĒ and I have the options to start windows normally or there are 3 other options which I donít remember exactly but is like safe boot etc.

I choose to start windows normally and then all is ok.

Any idea why this happens? (and it doesnít happen all the times)

I'm new to this form and hope I've posted the question in the right area.

I've been getting the infamous "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" screen. When it asks if Windows should search for a solution, I say "Yes" but it can never find one.

I'm using Vista Home Premium and haven't installed any new hardware or software reciently.

I disabled "Auto Restart" and received the "Blue Screen" with the header "Memory Management" and several "Stop Codes"
0X0000001A, (0X00041287, 0X0000A0B4 ........)

I've attached some .dmp files as well as a Belarc System Profile which I hope will provide a clue as to what's going on.

Sincere thanks in advance for any and all suggestions as this thing is driving me crazy!

A:[SOLVED] Vista Recovered From Unexpected Shutdown

I would do a system restore for a day or two prior to when you had the problem. This will fix it and put your computer back to the way it was.

As a general rule when windows asks me if I want them to search for a solution I generally say no. It rarely finds the solution, and usually simply restarting a program or rebooting takes care of it.

I never anticipated that I would be saying this, but right now I'm on the verge of downgrading from Windows 7 x64 to Vista x64.

My computer now takes up to five minutes to wake from a sleep state. This is especially bizarre as I have tuned off sleep in the power setttings. Applications are taking noticeably longer to load than under Vista, and when they are shut down, the relevant data file closes quickly but the application itself persists for up to fifteen seconds.

Worst of all, is the impact on my audio interface. I do a lot of digital audio work for which I use a Cakewalk SPS-25 interface rather than the motherboard's integrated audio. Since upgrading to Windows 7, any minor event during playback, such as scrolling a window, clicking the start button, or receiving a notification that a contact has signed into Windows Live Messenger causes extreme dropouts and stuttering in the audio stream. Under Vista I was able to load and work on a couple of applications without this happening.

I upgraded a couple of weeks ago with a clean install, and I am running signed 64-bit Windows 7 drivers for all my devices. My hardware spec (below) is unchanged from the one that has given me almost two years of trouble-free performance under Vista.

Any last-gasp ideas before I waste a day reinstalling Vista?

My desktop runs Windows XP SP3 and I use Outlook Express 6. (v6.00.2900.5512)

I noticed yesterday that the toolbar at the top of my OE window had suddenly changed. Instead of the previous buttons for Send Reply, Forward etc, there were different ones with new pictorial icons. What puzzles me is how this change has come about.

Windows Update is set NOT to be automatic - updates are only done when I initiate them - and it has been some while since the last Windows Updates for XP anyway, so it is unlikely to be the result of an MS update. Any why would MS bother about changing the icons on an old version of OE anyway?

Is this an indication of some form of hacking? Seems unlikely - why would a hacker do something that was obvious like that. OE seems to functional normally anyway - messages come and go as usual.

Any ideas please?

Up until yesterday everything was working fine and smooth, then today, after launching Borderlands 2 I discovered that I can't play for more than 5 minutes before ending up with this BSOD, take into account that I have over 200 hours clocked with the game and I never had any problems. Also, I have the latest antivirus definitions of MS Security Essentials (I scanned and it's clean) and nvidia drivers.

I, also searched this forum and tried some solutions which worked for other users with similar BSOD (one guy was pointing out that the problem lies in the HW acceleration of Flash Player, I unchecked the option but it didn't solve it).

I am pretty desperate, can anyone help? I included the log requested by the guidelines.

4 dumps attached, they are all of the VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (116) bugcheck.

The basic definition of a 0x116 bugcheck is:
There may be a bug in the video driver or video hardware.So, let me now explain what VIDEO_TDR_ERROR means. First off, TDR is an acronym for Timeout Detection and Recovery. Timeout Detection and Recovery was introduced in Vista and carried over to Windows 7. Rather than putting exactly what Timeout Detection and Recovery does exactly, I'll just directly quote the MSDN article! Timeout detection: The GPU scheduler, which is part of the DirectX graphics kernel subsystem (Dxgkrnl.sys), detects that the GPU is taking more than the permitted amount of time to execute a particular task. The GPU scheduler then tries to preempt this particular task. The preempt operation has a "wait" timeout, which is the actual TDR timeout. This step is thus the timeout detection phase of the process. The default timeout period in Windows Vista and later operating systems is 2 seconds. If the GPU cannot complete or preempt the current task within the TDR timeout period, the operating system diagnoses that the GPU is frozen.
To prevent timeout detection from occurring, hardware vendors should ensure that graphics operations (that is, DMA buffer completion) take no more than 2 seconds in end-user scenarios such as productivity and game play. Preparation for recovery: The operating system's GPU scheduler calls the display miniport driver's DxgkDdiRese... Read more

I'm running a Medion M3 Composer 5300. I've had it for about 4-5 years, so I know it's getting old.

I've had these issues for the past couple of week and it seems to be increasing in frequency.

1) While working on my computer, my monitor will suddenly go to power-saving mode and shut off, as if I have turned my system off, but the tower stays on, and the Fan revs faster and faster.

2) When updating or doing an install that requires a restart, the computer resets, but the monitor shuts down and the tower stays on as described above.

3) Sometimes, upon starting the tower, there is a loud beep, and the monitor does not turn on, but the tower runs as described above.

The monitor cant be turned back on, but the system basically keeps going and the fans run continuously. I have to turn off the power switch on the back of the tower. I think I have an issue with faulty or failing hardware, and I was wondering how I can check the functionality of my components to see if there are any problems. Are there any programs or things built into windows XP that can find these issues?

A:Solved: Unexpected System Shutdown/Failure to properly Boot

No i don't think there is such a program, but there is a lot of software which will scan your PC for mistakes and those might be able to find your problem. I know that Registry Easy 4.7 is free to download and scan..if you get a lot of problems, try reinstalling windows.

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...)

Hello, I am having a strange problem on my system.
From last few days, whenever I start it, my computer restarts automatically with an error message 'Unexpected behavior declared by some files in Windows'. I have done everything, but the problem still persists.

I have already re-installed Windows 4 times, but this error message is still there. I have scanned my PC with Norton, BitDefender and Kaspersky antiviruses, but no use. Not only this, I have already used a lot of registry cleaners etc. So, this is not the problem of a virus, malware etc. I am afraid that this may disable my hard disk, permanently! Because, error message shows that this may cause a physical damage.

Please tell me what is the solution of this problem? I think, I am going to be mad.

A:[SOLVED] Unexpected behavior declared by some files in Windows problem solution!

When you reinstalled, did you do a Full Format of the drive, not a quick Format? You can also try deleting the partition and then creating a new partition and then formatting that, then installing Windows. Or using killdisk first then format the drive and install Windows. When you install Windows, does it load all the drivers in the beginning? Or do you skip some? Have your run chkdsk /f/r (this would mark any bad blocks and not save data to them, the same as doing a
Full Format, also correct any file errors)? If you have done any of these, then test the memory with memtest and do a HDD Diagnostic test for the manufacturer of the drive.

I did a "housecall" to help a friend install the 2011 version of Norton Internet Security, which I did successfully. But then I noticed that whenever I attempt to open a folder on the desktop, either directly or through a shortcut, an installation dialog box opens instead, trying to install Smart Web Printing. If I cancel the install, it tries to start again (a couple of more times) but then the folder finally opens. Clicking on program icons, or document icons works as expected.

The unexpected and unwanted install can't complete because the installer isn't finding the needed .msi file, which isn't to be found anywhere on the disk. The owner wasn't present to ask whether this is something she's seen before, or whether she had attempted and failed to install the offending program. But why in the world would attempting to open an arbitrary folder initiate or restart a failed install in the first place? And, how do I put a stop to it?
