Multiple BSODs over the last few months system service exception or me

Q: Multiple BSODs over the last few months system service exception or me

Hello my name is Josh I have followed your instructions on the BSOD posting instructions and will attach the logs for review.

The computer is sporadic sometimes it will bsod almost immediately launching almost any game wow,steam games,ect even sometimes just launching the web. Other times it will run for hours without bsod then suddenly crash. I've seen it get to the desktop and bsod 5-6 times in a row. Very random from what I can tell its not linked to a specific application.

Any help is greatly appreciated at this point i'm thinking its probly a hardware failure of some sort. Pinning it down would be helpful.

Thank You.

About three weeks ago I started getting occasional BSOD's on startup for a Machine_Check_Exception, which typically indicates a hardware failure. After completely gutting my whole system several times, and spending too many hours in BIOS I was able to identify that there was a problem occurring during system start up while doing an IDE check. I finally realized that the problem was a disc drive. So I just removed the disc drive. (let it be noted that the BSOD only occurred during start up and occasionally my system would start up just fine and the computer would perform normally((I never use my disc drive so the function of that during this time is unknown)) )

Immediately after solving the IDE problem and being able to boot-up I receive several different BSOD's at random times, the occur most during gameplay (starcraft 2 particularly) This typically will be the System Service Except BSOD for an nvidia driver, nvlddmkm.sys I believe. I once got a BSOD for something involving a USB port, and I've gotten the BSOD for IRQ_less_than_or_NOT_equal with no driver listed.

I do have some dump logs available, however, I have noticed entire gaps in the logs, where I know that the computer was on, and did shut down due to a BSOD.

I do have my DXdaig results, and this shouldn't be due to a driver issue, as I was also receiving audio driver BSOD's but after a lot of driver updates, and rollbacks, I was able to fix that BSOD.

thank you for you input in advance

Howdy all! I was here in the past a while ago with getting semi-frequent BSODs on boot after the splash and login screen. The issue I found was a loose power connector. I snugged it in place, and then my system is fine for many months (maybe four or five). Now this morning, I had quite a few BSODs after the splash screen and logging onto my computer. I was finally able to get a successful boot after many attempts. I checked power connections, tried to make the connections secure, yet still got BSODs. Dump is attached. You guys are awesome. Thanks!

I am running windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I built this computer back at the end of January-all new parts. Within the first month I received BSODs consisting of Page Fault in Nonpaged Area, and Memory Management (happened twice) and did the Windows Memory Diagnostic and Memtest 86+ and found that I had issues with my Memory.

After swapping out my memory each time with new, I would go about 2 weeks and then I would get more BSODs. The types of BSODs that I am getting are:


The most recent system service exception was when I was booting up windows last night. They all seem to happen at random times. I could be browsing the internet or I could step away and come back to find that an error occurred.

To try to debug the Memory Management and Page Fault BSODs, since with my researching I found that a common reason for this is bad memory, I once again ran Windows Memory Diagnostic and found no Hardware errors and I let Memtest 86+ run for 34 hours and found no errors.

If anyone has insight as to why these may be happening, I would greatly appreciate it.

A:Several BSODs in last month-System Service Exception, Memory Mgmt, etc

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (Cx05) probably a driver.
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.I understand you have done memtest already so start with verifier.

* 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 Windows.
If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so y... Read more

Two weeks after moving to windows 7 64bit from xp I started getting BSODs of all kinds, caused by, according to bluescreen viewer, core system files like ntoskrnl.exe and tcpip.sys and hal.dll, with messages including BAD POOL CALLER and DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL. Often after rebooting before the starting windows screen there would be a message saying WARNING: an error has been detected with the hard drive, but the only disk related message I can find in the system log is with with event id 33: "The oldest shadow copy of volume C: was deleted to keep disk space usage for shadow copies of volume C: below the user defined limit." And all the hard drive diagnostics I have used have passed the harddrives. The BSODs often happened when I wasn't at the computer.

So I did a clean (re) install and the day after I get this System Service Exception BSOD which Blue Screen Viewer says is caused by ntoskrnl.exe. The event with id 33 is still occurring in the logs.

Hoping someone can help

I have recently been having problems with one of my Windows 7 x64 machines which was stable for about 7 months before it started having problems again. Before it was stable it had similar problems to what I'm seeing now, except it lacked BSODs. Reseatting the memory fixed those issues it was having before. It is similarly configured to another computer I have that runs fine, so part swapping is an available option for memory, video card, and processor.

It suffers from a seemingly random assortment of BSOD problems (though SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION and DRIVER_IRQL_LESS_OR_EQUAL are the most common so far). Most of the BSOD point to ntoskrln.sys driver, one has pointed to the Nvidia driver (nvlddmkm.sys). It also sometimes crashes outright without a BSOD, going black and then restarting or just freezing. The BSOD and other restarts happens mostly when playing video games, but has also happened watching Hulu, or letting it sit at the desktop. When it restarts seldom does it not post the BIOS and give a BIOS error code instead. I haven't recorded the beep codes, but it appears to be long beeps running continuous without end; which according to Gigabyte means "memory not correctly installed".

I have tried updating my BIOS, chipset and video card drivers; but have found older Nvidia drivers to be more stable. Though this could just be coincidence as the crashes are random and the machine can be stable for hours playing a game one day and then suffer repeated crashes ... Read more

So I built a new pc on June the 2nd.
CPU intel i5 4670 3.4ghz
Mobo Asus Z87-k
RAM 16gb corsair vengeance low profile ddr3 1600mhz CL9 1.5v
GFX MSI GTX 770 2gb
PSU Corsair TX650w (From OLD system)
Soundcard Creative Soundblaster Xtreme Gamer (From OLD system)
Storage 1tb and 640gb WD Caviar Black HDD (From OLD system)
OS: Win 7 SP1 fresh install

So here's a quick time line
build pc the first time; two faulty RAM slots that won't POST and turns out RAM is 1.65v which is technically not recommended so swapped for one above which is the recommended 1.5v for haswell cpus (further reading on this says 1.65v should work fine but trying to maximise compatibility here). Motherboard replaced as faulty. Problems were recurrent BSODs after and during fresh install of windows 7 of the KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLEd, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION with bluescreenviewer citing ntoskrnl.exe as the culprit (which it isn't). Memtest was clear over 12 passes. Hard drive diagnostics checked out perfectly.
Received the replacement gear and rebuilt but still got the same problems. RAM slots tested fine, Memtest is clear over 8 passes. Tried without sound card, still BSODs. Without graphics card, still BSODs. BSODs occur when idling, when trying to install drivers or when trying to install windows occasionally.

I personally can't get anything from your logs, there are certainly no drivers showing up and it does seem to be pointing towards hardware. If you're suspecting the CPU, which it could well be, run Prime95 to stress test it.

Two things I would ask though is what copy of Windows media do you have, a DVD? It may be worth using an ISO from Digital River to rule that out. The other would be is your BIOS revision the latest?

Hi Folks,
I upgraded to Win10 a while back and have had BSOD almost every day (usually several).
I did also install 16gb of RAM at a similar time so was wondering if that may be related.

I seem to get most BSODs when using my GFX intensive CAD package but even chrome can trigger it.
It seems that my GFX is twitchy about using new drivers and BSODs are more frequent with any new driver.

Any help would be useful as I really dont know what to do.

So over the past few days, one of my PCs have been getting random BSODs (system service exceptions), and I haven't been able to figure out what the cause is. I haven't installed or modified any software of hardware; it's just randomly started blue screening. It also occurs randomly, whether I'm gaming, browsing the web, etc. I'm at a loss here unfortunately and was hoping someone here could help me out. I've attached the appropriate logs and everything to the post. Let me know if more information is required.

Good day,

I have been away on vacation for 2 months and after I've come back, my pc went to hell :D

These are the problems im facing :

The PC BSODs after putting pressure on it. Mainly - games.

Firstly ALL of them simply crash, browser ones - shockwave has crashed.
Minecraft - java crashed.
Guild Wars 2 - crash, etc etc.

Now if I put even more pressure than just try playing them, for example run a minecraft server AND play in it - I BSOD.

Now a day back it was alot worse - I would BSOD minutes after startup without doing a thing! So I took measure :

1. Updated all my drivers.
2. Ran a virus scan (clean)
3. Ran a Malware scan (1 malware file)
4. Used Registry Mechanic to its full power.

All of these seem to have helped to getting me able to use the pc just fine if I dont game.

Now what I suspect is a RAM failure. I ran a Memtest and it came out with 29 errors after one run.

I'm new to the forums and also am using Windows XP SP3 so I dont know what error info and how to give you :( If you specify and instruct -ill get you the logs.

For a long time now i have been getting BSOD's, pretty much all of the time from System Service Exception and KMode Exception Not Handled. Sometimes the PC never gets to the BSOD and just freezes up and restarts. This happens at any time whether im doing nothing or on the internet, sometimes it happens before the PC can load up fully. Most of the time though it happens when i am gaming. I rebuilt most of my PC but this still carried on. The parts that i have replaces are the PSU, RAM, Graphics Card and the case as well as adding in 2 extra fans. The temperature stays withing good values. The PC also often gets stuck on the post boot screen where it says "SMART Check Capable and OK" and it will take a few minutes for it to get past this stage and carry on loading, but this doesnt happen not all the time. I have tried diagnosing this myself but i have hit a wall. I ran Seatools and the HDD failed all of the tests, however after checking the fail code this was simply because it couldnt find the serial number. The HDD then passed tests from both CrystalDiskInfo and DiskCheckup. I thought that it was either the HDD or the MB as they are the only components not to be replaced. Since HDD seems to have passed its SMART tests i am inclined to believe it is the MB. PLEASE HELP!!!

A:BSOD from System Service Exception and KMode Exception Not Handled

Hello Perry, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Please read the instructions here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions, and post back with the needed information. One of our BSOD experts should be by later when able to further help.

Hi Guys,

I'm a composer working on a deadline and have started to experience quite intermittent BSOD's.
It appears to happen at higher system loads.
I'm reasonably experienced in building custom machines (this is my third on), and so far have never experienced issues with them.
This current one is a racked i7 3930K Hexacore on a Sabertooth x79, with 32gb of Ramm and a GTX470.
I'm using Nuendo 6 in 64 bit mode (Cubase's bigger brother) with an RME Fireface 800.
The fireface runs via firewire and has its own pcie card for this.
In addition there is an external G-tech drive connected via Esata.

In the last week I've been having 1-3 bsod's a day..a real productivity killer and I hope someone can help me out. I've used Whocrashed to at least get an indication of what it might be, but I don't have much experience with minidumps.

The only thing that I have noticed is that Windows is attempting a surface scan during startup, which fails due to a 'recently installed software package' I have no idea what that might be.
I've not been able to do a diskchk on C:
Regardless, C: seems to work fine and I've not noticed any issues.

Drivers are pretty much up to date.

I'm attaching a dump, would someone mind having a look and giving me a clue? Thanks in advance!

Hi there this is my first post on these forums so apologies if I'm not too familiar with the layout. I'm not too computer savy so if anyone could try simplify any answers/solutions that would be great. Basically the problem is for the past few months around start up of windows 7 I was getting freezes, BSOD errors (in particular IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and Page_fault_in_non_paged_area being the main ones) and my pc would be in a continuous loop of booting then freezing or shutting down and I couldn't get the pc to work. I thought the problem could be corrupted windows files so I reinstalled windows onto my computer using the isntallation disk and installed drivers and all was working fine for around 4 days. Each day my windows would have importaint updates so I installed them when prompted. One day I all of a sudden started getting the same errors I got before, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGEED_AREA and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and no new software had been installed at this point. I have tested ram and my hard drive with no errors showing although when looking at properties of my computer I have 20GB of ram (16GB Available) not sure if this has anything to do with it (2 x 8 GB sticks 1 X 4 GB stick). Hopefully you guys can help me out and prevent me shelling out on a new rig. Thank you, Conor .

I have been getting these "Bad Pool Header" and "System Service Exception" BSODs for about a day now (the "Bad Pool Header" one tends to pop up more often then the other btw). I ran a registry cleaner which didn't work and ran memtest this morning and it showed that my memory was fine. The BSODs tend to occur more often when I am playing a game or running some program that uses a bit more memory but it also happens when I am just on the internet. On the other hand, last night I did nothing but surf YouTube for 3 hours and didn't get a BSOD at all. However, since then I haven't been able to do anything for more than 10 minutes (without being in safe mode) without it crashing, and this morning it completely froze until I turned it off. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. It came preinstalled from the manufacturer and unfortunately I do not have the install disc. The entire laptop is less than 2 years old and there have been no major hardware changes and I have never reinstalled the OS.

This is my first post in these forums and I am looking into insight on what my underlying cause may be in these multiple BSOD's. I am not very experienced nor extremely tech savvy, so please bear with me while I attempt to explain.

As the title states, I do not even know where to being so I shall start at the very beginning. I was browsing local craigslist and found a deal too good to pass up, it was the phenom x6 1090T, msi gd70 MB, 8 gigs of ram and a tb hdd for 125$, so I immediately jumped on that as soon as I could. Upon buying a power supply, case and video card i was up and running. Everything went smooth at first, and then the hard drive started failing, no big deal, bought another one, after all I got a good deal. Then one of the sticks of ram was dying causing bsods as well, since 4 gigs of ram doesn't do much when gaming, i bought a new set. Yet still I am having BSOD issues.

Ironically the majority of the BSODs come from playing Counter-Strike GO, while playing the game I notice my gameplay becomes choppy and lagged, but I maintain A constant frame rate well over 100fps. Then I notice lag spikes in my latency for no apparent reasoning at all, my latency or ping will go from 60's to 3-400 only for a second or two every 20 seconds or so. This usually ends up agitating me so I close the game and thats when the BSOD occurs, upon closure of the game, this has happened with other games as well but seems to be more typical with this particular game. ...

5 months of Multiple BSODs on a brand new computer - driver or hardware error? Mini dump analysis help please.

Hi, I?m looking for anyone who can analyse mini dumps and help me determine the source of my problems.

The system has been giving me hell from the start. The problem often manifests in different driver and memory errors - To my level of understanding the errors seem to be fairly unrelated. When it runs well it?s awesome and it really performs. When it starts messing up, that?s it, it might BSOD on every start up 5times in a row and then start working for no apparent reason.

I ruled out: faulty PSU and faulty RAM, and system always runs cool, (the hottest component being the fanless graphics card).

I have also run extensive tests on system hard drive:
Seatools returned no errors after firmware upgrade and 2 long tests. However DiskCheckup keeps changing its mind out predicted TEC date: it jumps from Jan 2010 too Aug 2011 either of which is unacceptable and well within manufacture warranty

Reinstalled windows countless times with different installation CDs

So that leaves MOBO, CPU, GPU or maybe some software of driver issue.

I feel that it must be hardware related but I can?t work out what it is, on top of that the faults are often intermittent making trial and error testing unreliable. I have collected many minidumps now, but I can?t work out if they are related or not ? has my comp dozens of problems or just a couple with v... Read more

Hello, receiving random different BSODs:



Sony Vaio VPC-EH3J1E

Intel Core i3 2350M @ 2.30 GHz

4.00 GB RAM

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

So far I have tested the HDD with 3 different testing tools (CrystalDisk, SamsungHDDTool, and ToolstarHDD Test. All passed. RAM Test has also passed on a 5 pass run. Mainboard was changed in the Notebook last week under Guarantee. What else could this be? Any help is appreciated.


Laptop, only the power suppy connected. RAM tested with Memtest86+ (7pass) and it passed. Mainboard replaced, Hard drive tested with CHKDSK, SamsungHDDTool, and Toolstar HDD Test. Recovery of the system is not possible because the device is a guarantee case and the customer does not want to lose his data. I am able to boot to the desktop. The bluescreens are sporadic. No new software or hardware has been added to this laptop in the last 24 hours. The customer says that he does not add any external hardware devices to the laptop when he uses it. The laptop is only 3 months old.

I have downloaded and installed ALL drivers from the Sony Vaio support site. After the first restart, I was thrown another 2 BSODs: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (0x0000003B) and SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (0x1000007E). So far the following work has been done on this notebook:

A few weeks ago I shelled out and built my own system. Since the installation of Win7 Ultimate (64bit), i've been having some system crashes, namely System_Service_Exception(3b) two times, and once Bad_Pool_Header.
I looked at the dumps with windows debugging tools but can't make much of what i'm looking at.

Things i've tried:
Reinstalled Windows
memtest86+ - my first pair of ram sticks were bad. I replaced them, ran the check again, (they were good this time) but BSODs persist.
Updated drivers
Flashed latest BIOS

Start by installing SP1: Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Run Driver Verifier after that: http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ed-473665.html

It is also a good idea to run a couple other hardware diagnostics.

Run Memtest86 again, on all sticks of RAM at the same time and for 7 passes.

I know this is a kommon problem and there are other threads on this. But, as every problem is also individual, I still dare to post.

Until yesterday my computer worked fine. I played Skyrim, then read my e-mails using Firefox and then turned the computer off and went to bed. In the morning I turned the computer on and it didn't start. Instead, it ran system repair. After that, it didn't start again - it got to the Windows 7 opening screen, then computer went silent for a moment (not the screen, but hard drive), and threw me back to the start screen of computer. I pushed F8 and ran the last known good configuration. Nothing. I ran again system repair and after that last known good configuration. Now it started. I was able to use the computer for half an hour, just reading e-mails and listening to music using Windows Media Player and reading a text on Word, when suddenly everything froze. Completely - so completely that I had to use restart button on the computer, Cntrl+Alt+Del didn't help. It hasn't happenede like that never before!
After pushing restart-button the computer got to the Windows, I could already see my backround picture, when I suddenly got the blue screen saying the infamous words SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION etc. Well, I did let the poor thing to restart again, run system repair again, try to use the last known good configuration again, but at least three times in a row I got this bloody system service exception.

Only 15 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 70 to 90 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Don't worry about the specific number, it's just important that you have checked and installed any updates that were available (and didn't experience any errors).

Got this new Lenovo desktop with WinHate. Struggled with several weeks to learn and set everything up. Finally it is working just fine and dandy. ALL OF A SUDDEN, out of the blue, it decides that it wants to take mini-vacations at random times throughout the day in the form of SYSTEM.SERVICE.EXCEPTIONS. I saw somewhere that Symantic might be the culprit...I did not have Symantic products but, the only things that happened recently were that that the stupid McAfee that came with the PC upgraded and like two days later started to complain that it was expired and that I should renew it. So, based on someone saying that Symantic (Norton) might cause this error, I went ahead and delete the McAfee (using CP Program Deleter) (BTW: I use a paid version of AVAST for virus protection)

So anyway, this started happening and keeps happening randomly.

Now another thing which I have noticed is that, I think, every time it crapped out, I was using Firefox. Do you know ANY REASON why that may be related? Now this is a problem because I have now run into three important commercial sites that I am required to use to function which DO NOT WORK with the stupid Internet Explorer 10 that Microsoft felt compelled to shove down my throat. These sites work fine with Firefox.
