BSOD Probably related to video driver

Q: BSOD Probably related to video driver

Hey guys,

So recently I've been getting quite a few BSODs from my 6 month old laptop.
For the research I've installed bluescreenview to see what is causing the crashes.
Here is the logs for the most recent crash I had (Which is about 20 mins earlier):

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.)

Hi circle26.

Update the display driver to 332.21 WHQL.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Let us know the results. For any further issue, post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Hello all,

I'm new here so please bear with me. Recently I've been experiencing very frequent BSODs and I'm not sure what is the root cause so I need some help.

For starters, I've attached the required files after running the SF Diag Tool.

I'm running Win 7 Home Premium on an Asus U36JC laptop, which is about a year old.

I've made a few possibly related observations:

1. High chance of BSOD if I'm playing a video (either youtube or streaming client). A telltale sign is intermittent audio stuttering.

2. Shockwave flash plugin seems to be crashing on Chrome and Firefox a lot when I visit flash sites.

3. The spate of BSODs started to happen on and after 10th April 2012. I did a quick check to see what significant programs have been installed after this date, and they are:ASUS FancyStart ver 1.1.0
Asus ControlDeck ver 1.0.9
WinFlash 2.31.1
ASUS Virtual Camera ver 1.0.20
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 redistributable - x86 9.0.30729.17

Otherwise, there doesn't seem to be anything out of the ordinary. I hope someone can help me resolve this. Thank you in advance.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that not all crashes result in a BSOD. Some crashes happen in the midst of playing a video, with the audio stutter on loop. Some crashes are during seemingly random times when using different applications. I use this laptop for work so I don't do any gaming/graphic intensive stuff.

A:BSOD - possible video driver related crashes

Yes, several of the BSODs seems to be related to the graphics drivers, you need to update both the Intel driver and the Nvidia Driver.

When I open some programs (chrome, skype, steam, games in general) the screen goes black and either comes back saying my video driver crashed and recovered, or just restarts and windows says I had a bsod. I never actually get to see the bsod. It also can happen when I first load something that uses flash. (youtube video, twitch.tv stream) It can also happen when I call someone on skype.

It does not happen consistently, I can go a couple days without a bsod, I can get 4 in an hour, and it isn't the same program resulting in a crash each time. The last one was when I opened starcraft 2.

Long story short.

Built the system in January 2009. Ran like a dream. Around November/December 2009, started having issues with the video card (or what seemed to be the video card) crashing intermittently (freezing, kaleidoscope-like on the screen after a few seconds). It would happen seemingly at random (sometimes once a week, other times once every 10 minutes). It would happen with nearly every game possible.

SO two years after building the system, I decide to finally replace the video card (assuming that was the issue as I know it's dying because it's fan grinds like mad now).

Works like a charm.. until I try to play Starcraft II.

Starcraft II begins to play fine (generally for about 5-30 minutes), then freezes for 20-30 seconds and crashes the drivers or just stays frozen altogether (both times requiring a hard reboot). If I try to play it in Windowed Mode, it'll do the same thing except instead of crashing the drivers, it pulls the kaleidoscope stunt that my old card did, but only for the actual game window (not my full monitor), freezing my screen completely. This isn't a once in awhile issue, it's a guaranteed 'if i try to play Starcraft II for any medium to extended period of time (even an hour) it will crash the drivers/card'

The same issue has happened 3-4 times playing Heroes of Newerth (drivers crashing) and only one time while playing Black Ops (ever, and I can play it for 6-8 hours straight and not have issues)

A:Video related BSOD/driver crashes

This is a known problem called an infinite loop with the Nvidia driver. I'm just searching for a solution.

Well, after a lot of searching I could write a book on the number of different solutions I came across. The only common denominator is the driver for the graphics card. These problems with the infinite loop go back at least 5 years. If you google for Nv4 infinite loop you will see what I mean.

My only suggestion is to first follow this guide to delete any drivers that were installed and have not been deleted. This process allows you to delete drivers that you would otherwise not be able to see that could be causing conflicts. Follow this by downloading the latest driver from Nvidia and installing it. This works for XP as well as Vista and 7.

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/remove-old-drivers-after-upgrading-to-new-hardware/

I would also reinstall the motherboard chipset driver with the latest version and check that your bios is up to date.

The latest driver from Nvidia is only about a month old so will hopefully be OK once any old drivers are cleaned out.

Other than upgrading to XP 64 bit or taking the leap to windows 7 I found no other viable suggestions.

BSOD Description

I was playing Portal 2 tonight for roughly 90 minutes, when on a loading screen, the game froze. Next there was some short, vertical, multicoloured lines that were overlaid on the loading screen, that kinda looked like a small barcode repeated over and over in a line. The system then crashed to the BSOD.

The BSOD itself said that "attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed". I did take a picture of it, if anyone wants me to upload that.

The game is a fresh install done just last night. I have had this problem before with Portal 2 (hence the reinstall), and I also have had it with Dear Esther and Fallout: New Vegas. At first I thought that my computer was trying to run the games on the integrated HD 4000 on the CPU, so I set my laptop to high performance and plugged it into the wall so it would (hopefully) only run on the AMD GPU. Dear Esther and Fallout both appear to be fine (previously they crashed on start up but I was able to play about 30 minutes of each last night), but Portal 2 crashed again tonight.

To my knowledge, my graphics card drivers are up to date, as the version number on my computer matches that on the Samsung website.

Hi all.

My computer has always had intermittent BSOD but generally it's been only 1-2 a month and after a system restart everything works fine. In the last couple of weeks I've been getting BSOD after only a few minutes of operation every time I start up and generally after these errors the computer won't boot - sometimes it will be a black screen after BIOS check, sometimes it won't even get that far - just black screen without the BIOS check even starting. Usually the only way to get it to boot again is to disconnect the power and remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard. I've run driver verifier which has indeed generated it's own minidumps but I don't really understand what these error reports are trying to tell me - if someone could take a look and point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

thanks.

I recently started a new job and was given a new Dell Laptop. I am having seemingly randomly BSOD issues. Some days it doesn't happen at all and some days it can happen up to ten times. I've got several BSOD errors (mainly CRITICAL PROCESS DIED). I believe it's a driver

related issue. I've tried updating all my drivers and firmware to no avail.

I used the Driver Verifier and immediately got errors with sedfilter.sys and symefasi64.sys. I had to boot into safe mode to turn the verifier off. I tried the verifier without those two enabled and got DRIVER VERIFIER DETECTED VIOLATION.

Help would be greatly appreciated, this issue is a real pain!

So, 2 days ago I downloaded and installed a new game via steam, (devilian, not that it probably matters), and upon first starting it up, bluescreen out of nowhere. I haven't had a bluescreen with this laptop in a long time (A dell inspiron n5110 15r), and so this was pretty strange. I believe the first crash was a 116 crash, timeout exception. I booted up my computer again, started looking into the crash, and bluescreened again with nothing but firefox open. Since then, I've reinstalled all of my video drivers, ran a chkdsk, windows update, and pretty much anything else I could think of.

As of right now, I can't boot windows with a driver installed for my GPU. If I uninstall the driver, I can boot into the beautiful 800x600 stock windows driver setup, and all seems well. No issues whatsoever in safemode either. The moment I try to install a driver, it won't even get to the login screen for windows (it crashes immediately after the windows startup graphic). It seems to be slow loading drivers and such when it boots like that too, although that might not have any bearing on anything. I've tried cleaning my registry with CCleaner, and a variety of other minor maintenance things people should probably do all the time. It doesn't seem like a hardware fault - my gpu has only ever run on the cool side of "warm", and everything seems to function fine without any drivers installed (even doing tasks that are relatively resource intensive),

This is a most vexing problem.

About a year ago I had the worst series of system crashes. As best as I could tell, they were video driver related and tended to occur while playing video games. No matter how many driver updates I made, how thoroughly I tried to clean the drivers, I could not correct it. I ultimate resorted to just formatted the hard drive and reinstalling Windows 7.

It has now been a year, and without warning the problem has returned. The symptoms are identical to before. Occurs during video games, crashes either to a blue screen or I get a static pattern of horizontal streaks across the screen. If I do not reboot to safe mode I have to repair the system off of a Windows 7 CD. WhoCrashed still insist it is software and not hardware based.

I would really like to know what the heck is going on and how the exact same problem returned over a year later, because I do not want to be performing boot disk formats on an annual basis. Can anybody help me with this problem?

Thanks.

My first BSOD happened when I had both a game going, minimized, and a Divx movie loading. I was able to restart and I updated my drivers from amd. But I kept blue screening while watching youtube videos, or playing a game. Sometimes I would even blue screen on start up though. My case gets pretty warm and heats up my room while gaming, but I'm not sure if it's too hot. The video card was pretty warm to the touch but I'm not sure of the actual temp or if it's even the video card. A friend of mine installed MSI Afterburner and used that while gaming for a bit, but I myself do not know anything about overclocking, so I have since removed it. I'm not sure if this damaged my computer or what is going on. I am on another computer since mine is unstable, but I am usually able to get on it for a bit if I don't load videos/games.

I know the BSOD was related to video but I couldn't read it fast enough. I now have the automatic restart turned off so if the screen happens again I can actually read it. I have since then updated the video driver, but I wanted to make sure that it was just the driver and not something more serious since Windows 7 was designed to only have blue screens of death more so for kernel errors more so than general errors.

A:BSOD - Video Related

Hi, kls, and welcome to the forum. I looked at your latest dump and your dump from Dec 1st. Both show an unknown error code and blame iastor.sys, an Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver. This driver is up to date.Both also show iaantmon.exe, Intel Application Accelerator Component, Intel Application Accelerator involved in the crashes.

Because the bugcheck code is unknown, you will have to troubleshoot by a process of elimination. To start this process, I suggest that you update the drivers listed below through the links provided. Outdated drivers can and do cause memory corruption and BSOD's. The driver in red font is really obsolete.

Hello! Been having problems with BSOD for a couple of months now, and I am in no way capable of fixing this on my own. So I ask for your assistance

? OS: Windows 7
? x64
? Windows is the original installed OS on my system.
? OEM version (came pre-installed on system)
? Age of system: 1 year old. Motherboard was replaced about a month ago. More info at the end.
? Age of OS installation: 1 year
* have you re-installed the OS?: I haven't done it myself, but I believe the service company did it when it was in for reparation.

? CPU - Intel Core i5-3317U CPU @ 1.70GHz (4CPUs), ~1.7Ghz
? Video Card - Intel HD Graphics 4000
? MotherBoard: Not sure
? Power Supply - brand & wattage: Not sure

? System Manufacturer: Samsung
? Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom): NP530U3C-A07SE (Samsung Series 5 ultrabook. Also just called 530U3C)

Additional info:
Got BSOD for the first time in June if I remember correctly. Sent it to the workshop and they replaced the motherboard. Problem was not fixed, so I sent it back to the service company. According to them it was a software malfunction (0x000000FE: BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER), and not anything hardware related. My warranty doesn't cover software related problems, so they sent it back without really doing anything other than reinstalling OS (I think).

I checked the event list on my laptop and found a system error with the following codes:

A:BSOD - USB driver related?

Hi,

Both attached DMP files are of the BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER (fe) bugcheck.

An error has occurred in a Universal Serial Bus (USB) driver.

Overall, there is a problem with the USB hardware (motherboard or attachments) or the USB device driver has a bug.

Since you had the board replaced, it's very unlikely we are dealing with faulty hubs / ports, so this is likely the fault of a device you're connecting to the system via USB... OR a device driver issue.

First off, disconnect any and all USB related devices aside from the necessitates (keyboard, mouse). Don't connect whatever else you may normally attach throughout your days aside from those two devices for awhile.

I recommend removing and replacing Norton with Microsoft Security Essentials for troubleshooting purposes -

Norton removal tool - https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/...eb&pvid=f-home

If the above does not help, let's enable Driver Verifier to look for further device driver conflicts:

Was having a lot of BSODs on my computer, so I completely formatted and reinstalled windows 10 - not a few days into the fresh reinstall, the bsods started coming again.

So today I had a random bsod, which named ndis.sys as the problem. I then ran driver verifier for a little while, and got 3 bsods, all of which named hidclass.sys as the issue.

Hello,

at the beginning it's important to say that i'm german, so I apologize for my bad english .

My computer shows various bluescreens and colored screens (->>related to the video card driver?) every time I start playing games (such as Call of Duty 4, which I played competitive). The scenario is as follows: I start the game, join a match and after loading the map the monitor becomes black or colored (e.g. pink or sth.).
After investigating for days, I found out that the bluescreens that sometimes appear leads to the aspect, that the video card driver (Catalyst 12.9 beta) is corrupt. As you can see on the picture, I got the error several times in the past:

I just installed a Gigabyte G1 970 GPU in my computer, replacing a 6970 GPU. Before installing the new drivers, I uninstalled the ATI drivers via ATI's uninstaller followed by a reboot. After installing the GeForce drivers, I am getting occasional BSOD's when closing games (Half Life 2: Episode 2 in this case). I also just returned from running errands and noticed my computer had crashed while I was out.

This started as soon as I installed a new GPU and therefor I believe it's probably purely driver based.

Hi,

These BSODs may not be related to your freeze issue.

The reason I say that is because these two BSODs are caused by Zone Alarm; which needs to be removed.

If problems continue after ZA removal then turn on the Driver Verifier

Hi there,

Desktop PC, WIn10 64 bit, no problems until yesterday. A series of BSOD which often occurr when watching some videos/listenings to some music/playing some games; so I think they could be related to the video or audio card. If I don't do anything or listen to any songs, BSOD seems not to occurr.

The error is always different, for instance "BAD_POOL_HEADER" or "unexpected kernel trap".

I ran memtest86 several times, no errors.

The audio and video cards are new (of a few months ago), while the mobo and cpu are much older.
Everything was fine until yesterday, but I didn't make any changes to the system!! The ASUS audio driver is the most recent one and installed months ago; the NVIDIA driver is the most recent too, installed on 21 December.
On the attached file you won't see the ASUS audio driver and software because I just uninstalled it, in order to see if it was the cause.

No overclocking, but the first time the BSOD occurred, right after the reboot there was a message of the BIOS saying something about the overclocking frequency/voltage which was not correct... but again, I haven't touched anything and never had problems until yesterday. The message didn't reappear on the next reboots.
I was also thinking if it could be somehow related to some "heat" problems, since the video and audio cards are quite close and when the BSOD occurrs the fans are always at high speed, the pc is under a certain stress.

I've been having a problem for a while of various crashes when it comes to watching videos on chrome for a while or in the middle of playing games. Sometimes the computer just shuts off completely like a light but always after a bit of time in a video or game.

I'm not honestly sure how to attack the problem and would appreciate any help that I can get. What it seems to indicate is that it might be a bad driver that failed to covert from the win 7 to 10 upgrade or one of my logitec drivers, though I just deleted some of them for old things I no longer have.

Hi,

I was rendering a video the other day in Sony Vegas, once rendered i opened the video up in Windows Media Player. It played for about 1 second, then the entire screen flashed green, then flashed again and went black. 5 seconds later i was presented with a blue screen. I can't quite remember what exactly it said, but something along the lines off windows has encountered an error with the display driver or something, check for updates...and a load of other info include an error code.

I restarted the PC immediately, it booted to desktop fine, i checked for windows updates, there was one for x64 system, so i installed it and since then everything's been fine really. I must note, on the same day windows had a problem starting-up, it got stuck at the "Loading Windows" screen, but repairing windows fixed that.

I've just looked in action centre in Windows and noticed 3 errors have been listed regarding my display driver i think. I checked for solutions or something and the errors are no longer listed.

Still thought it was something related to video, simply because it creeps up most often while I'm watching videos. However, it's done it enough with no videos running that I'm having trouble placing the blame there anymore, either.

I just upgraded to W7 a few days ago, and have been getting semi-random BSODs that appear to be due to my graphics card. (dump files attached)

The error seems to happen when changing display modes. Once when viewing multiple IE windows (probably an Aero issue), but it consistently generates in Madden 04 (yeah, cutting edge, right?). Anyway, when it happens in Madden, it's always immediately after finishing a game situation and going to the results screen (full interactive 3D to video-ish style rendering). The frustrating part is that it doesn't happen every time that combo occurs, but if it pops, that's where it happens.

Asus CG5270
8 gb RAM
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 2.5GHz
Nvidia GeForce GT220

It looks like the Nvidia driver is the most likely culprit (and seems to appear in the forums where this issue comes up).

I started out with the 191.05 driver (got the errors), tried the 186.xx that came with the Asus W7 upgrade disk (got some weird visual artifacts on restart and immediately rolled back), and finally found the 195.55 beta drivers which seem to perform the best.

Updated the BIOS yesterday to the newest file from asus.com (along with chipset and audio drivers), which seemed to give stability for a few hours, and then the errors started up again. I don't know if there's any overclocking going on in the manufacturer BIOS file, but it seems more like an unhandled error in the graphics interface.

Any advice would be appreciated.

A:Video Related BSOD (Nvidia)

I've been getting frequent and repeated system freezes (in games and in Windows, BSODs and just plain FREEZEs), I've downloaded and installed every beta and official driver from nvidia, and I have to say, the GT220 is the hands down crappiest piece of hardware I've ever purchased.

If it can't run a five year old game at medium res without crashing, it shouldn't be marketed with anything more modern than a Pentium 2.

Hello, I posted about this awhile ago and thought my problem was fixed, but it was not. This time I have all of the required files for the BSOD analysis, there is a .zip file containing my performance report and my BSOD File Collection.

OS - Windows 7, x64

Original Installed OS - Due to manufacturing error, it came without an operating system installed. I used the included recovery disk to replace it with Windows 7 x64.

Due to this, I would think OEM because the recovery disk was given to us by the manufacturer but I'm not sure.

Age of OS Installation/Hardware - I've had this computer since Christmas, but I installed the OS about three days after.

Video Card - GeForce GT 640

A:Possibly Driver-Related BSOD

Recommendations:Crashes appear to be caused by your PC Tools NDIS 6 LightWeight filter driver. Remove PC Tools and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials to see if stability improves. If it does, and you want to keep PC Tools as your security software or you paid for it, contact PC Tools developers for support.Uninstall or change a program

Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows
Outdated and Problematic Drivers:You should update/replace/remove the following drivers. Any drivers that are known to cause BSODs, please remove the software or remove the drivers and then remove the device; steps to do so are given after the list of outdated drivers. If you have ASACPI.sys installed, make sure it is updated and not pre-2009; pre-2009 versions are known to cause BSODs:
NTIOLib_X64.sys Sun Jan 17 19:31:59 2010 (4B53C81F)
MSI Afterburner driver (known BSOD issues with Windows 7)
http://www.carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=NTIOLib_X64.sys

To update drivers, make sure to download the drivers from the manufacturer and not using 3rd party programs. Your drivers should be found from your motherboard support site (ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, etc.) or your vendor support site (Dell, HP, Toshiba, Sony, etc.) first. If you have devices you bought yourself, the drivers for those devices need to be downloaded from the manufacturer support site for those devices. If you need help, let us know.

To remove drivers, do so by uninstalling the device or software associated wi... Read more

I upgraded my computer last weekend (basically replaced everything except the Hard Drive) and have been getting random BSOD's since. Mainly 'IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL', occasionally 'PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA'
It happens at random times, sometimes after the computer has been on for hours, sometimes minutes. There doesn't seem to be a specific program that's causing this, it happens while playing games or browsing the web.

I did a fresh install of Windows 7 (64bit) after upgrading.

After the first BSOD I identified a bunch of obsolete drivers and uninstalled these, i've run Memtest86 (8 passes) and no errors were discovered.

I've used Verifier and it did identify a problem with a driver but I don't know how to find out which one.

I have attached my minidump logs, if you need anything else let me know.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi
Looking at your dump files I see that its your video drivers are causing the issue

Lets use driver verifier in Safe Mode to uninstall your current video drivers
Reboot
Download and install new Video drivers from ATI's website
Reboot

Also follow this link and post files for us to look at
http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ta-452654.html

Also check your windows updates and if any available download and install them

Is your system over clocked? CPU, RAM, Video Card?

Hi,

I recently installed an USB 2.0 PCI card with VIA v6212l chipset to use with an USB Arcade stick for playing games (the stick has faulty drivers and requires via chip to work)

It works just fine, until I try to shut down the pc.

After removing the card, I stopped getting a BSOD.

So I tried uninstalling usb drivers in device manager, with the PCI card removed, like the first response in this thread suggested: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...-shutdown.html

This caused the same BSOD error to appear on shutdown. Does this mean the drivers are faulty? How can I fix it?

The attached minidump contains info of the BSOD with PCI card installed.

I'm on Retail Windows 7 Professional 64bit, pc was newly built at the beginning of May.


Edit: I haven't tried reinstalling Windows yet. I turned off Windows Update like the Person in the other thread did, then uninstalled drivers but they just reinstall themselves. I don't really know what settings I'm supposed to use. How can i prevent the drivers getting installed when formatting and reinstalling Win7?

The driver I unisntalled that caused the BSOD was Intel(R) 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 1C26 or 1C2D.
I think it was 1C2D, but I'm not sure anymore.

Hello all!

I recently built a new computer. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and all of my drivers, and everything seemed to be going fine until I received a BSOD my second day into having completed the build.

Things I've tried:

* Running Memtest86. I only had time to let it complete two passes, which took a little over an hour. Both were returned error free.

* Driver Verifier. I set it to verify all non-Microsoft drivers and began receiving a BSOD before Windows could even finish booting. I traced this to my installation of Daemon Tools Lite and then uninstalled this program. Now when I follow the same Driver Verifier protocol, Windows freezes at the "Welcome" screen, but does not throw up a BSOD or reboot.

I've attached the results of the SF Diagnostic Tool. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I recently build a new Sandy Bridge computer to replace an older Conroe system. The new build retained the SSD (OS and programs) drive and the SATA data drives along with the existing Win7/64HP installation.

I built an Asus P8Z68V Pro with an Intel i5-2500k and DDR3-1333 ram (12GB). I did not reinstall Win7/64HP. I had to tweak a few programs that had an issue with my substitute hardware, but otherwise it seems to run fine.

However, I've had some crazy BSODs that seem to tie into grmnusb.sys. Yesterday I had 3 BSODs in a row that would happen as soon as I plugged in my Garmin Edge 305. The first happened while I was OCed. I rebooted and changed to default BIOS settings. Another BSOD when I reconnected the 305. So I uninstalled the Garmin USB driver and rebooted. Another BSOD when I connected the 305.

I finally just left the Edge 305 connected and rebooted the computer and it came up ok and let me access the data on the device in a normal manner. And yet on the same system, I've had a number of times I've plugged the Garmin device in with no issues at all.

When I first built the box (a couple of weeks ago) I had a BSOD from the Edge 305 connection, again with the gmnusb.sys tie-in. I rebooted, uninstalled the affected usb driver and all was ok for a time. And then the Garmin didn't want to connect so I re-installed the Garmin usb driver and all was well for a time.. and then, here we go again.

A:BSOD Crashes, driver related?

Hi Forerunner343 and Welcome.

You've discovered the joys of O.E.M. Bloatware! The only problem is that the "bloatware" often contains drivers essential to the running of that particular manufacturer of PC/Laptop.

Do you still have: (a) The OEM's Recovery Partition, or (b) The OEM Recovery disk (not likely these days).

I'd suggest re-installing the bloated HP set up. Then remove all the bloat you don't want, doing a thorough job of removing all remnants of said bloat. Download and install Windows critical/security Updates (not drivers I add). Download driver updates from HP/Mobo Mfr.. Then make a backup of your bloat free system **. If When!! in the future your system goes belly up you can re-install your nice clean, bloat free, up to [i](that9/i] date OEM system.

**This would be even better if you'd be happy to play around until SP1 is officially released to Joe Public (through Updates). Then you could make a backup of a SP1 compliant setup.

Heya

This is in connection with my first thread about my BSOD with Ultimate, I now have the error code nv4-mini.sys.

I am going to put vista back on fresh, and NOT install drivers from my WinFast CD. 6100M2MA, but instead get updated drivers from Nvidia and chipset driver from foxconn, the sound card is fine, i think its the VGA driver or onboard graphics driver, so i got the 178xx from Nvidia to sort out graphics and Chipset.

Can anyone else give my some tips or useful information on this matter. I have run vista before fine, but then it just goes sometimes.

Any comments are helpful

Thanks, Ben.

Hi all

My cousin had a drive crash on a Dell PC (now out of warranty) that was running Windows Media Center. He go t a new HDD and wanted to put XP Pro on it, so he bought XP SP2. He couldn't get it to install, so he asked me to look at it and I can't figure it out either. It's a Dell XPS, purchased in early 2006. Core 2 Duo, 1 GB RAM, SATA drives.

When the install starts, it loads drivers and gets to the "Setup is starting Windows" message before you usually do the drive formating. Then I get the BSOD.

I read some posts that said it could be a bad install disc, so I tried a different one. No change. Some said the HDD could be bad, so I hooked it up to another computer, installed windows on it, then put it back in the original machine and it crashed trying to boot windows. I tried taking out non-essential hardware, but it made no difference. The install disk is XP Pro SP2, so it shouldn't need SATA drivers, which is another common answer I've been seeing (I already tried the F6 method, loading drivers during install).

Just to make sure all of the hardware is ok, I installed Ubuntu on it. Install went perfectly, Ubuntu runs just fine.

Please let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks!

A:Bsod During Xp Install... Not Driver Related

The installation should prompt you to install the drivers for the SATA hdd.

Installing the hdd in one computer and installing a Windows operating system and then installing it into another computer can result in damaging the operating system. There is information that the registry recognizes from the chipset of the first motherboard where the OS was installed, introducing it to the new chipset of the other motherboard confuses it, and this usually results in needing to reinstall the OS.

I've been having BSOD problems on my new custom built PC. The problem seems to occur only when I am playing games that might stress the video card. The computer works completely fine except for that instance, usually within about an hour of play.

A:BSOD possibly related to video card

Start with this free video stress test: http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/

The BSOD errors are all over the place, and they cite a variety of different drivers as causing the errors. This is usually a sign of a hardware problem - and I'd suspect your video card because of the excellent description that you've given us. The definitive test is to try another (known good) video card.

Since last week some time, I'd been experiencing various crashes while playing Team Fortress 2. It only randomly crashed twice last week, which I didn't think anything of, but the past few days has been an on-going battle.

Last night, video apparently stopped being rendered while I was playing. Rather than crashing, I still had audio from the game.. I could still move and hear my character moving.. but I had no video. All I could see was what was behind the game, ie: firefox, and another program. So I end-tasked the game to try and search for a possible cause and solution in firefox, only to discover that the three tabs I had open weren't being rendered either. They were just blank, white pages, and firefox had to be end-tasked. It continued to do this, and I was essentially unable to use firefox.

I tried running Minecraft, and had a blank, white window appear rather than the launcher login screen that normally appeared. I restarted, and everything was fine. Because I was using an older video driver, I updated to the latest version available.. and it didn't help. I rolled them back to a much older version, and that didn't help either. I'm currently using the original version I had installed, which I had no problems out of until this random crashing started.

Today, however, during a session of TF2, I actually had a BSOD. I didn't catch everything from the BSOD, but the event viewer reads:

This system seemed fine until I moved it from where I was building it to another room where it is to stay.
Used different mouse/keyboard when building than when the BSOD's happened.

I tested the system out on the workbench for a couple days after doing a clean install of Win7 64bit on to a Kingston V300 240gb SSD. All went well running for 2 days.
The SSD firmware is up to date according to Kingston SDD Toolbox. SATA is in AHCI.

I ran the system for 24 hours looping an audio program that is fairly CPU intensive and had no issues.

I also tested this system for a few days after I bought it and it was fine. What I changed was the PSU (old one was Antec 350w), installed SSD, changed from 333 to 400 RAM (although, note that the BSOD's were repeatable with all of those original parts swapped back in).

I then moved the case to another room, plugged in different mouse/keyboard (both wired USB), same main monitor I was using to test as ... Read more

You didn't do it properly. The rules state you need to run the log collector which provides us with extra files we use to analyse the BSODs, dumps on their own do not paint the whole picture. Follow the rules again, this time precisely, and upload the new logs created.

Hi, I was hoping you could help. First off, it's a 2012r2 system, but with the shared code base with 8.1 I was hoping that someone could take a look. If this is an unreasonable request, then no hard feelings, it was worth a shot on my end.

So to the BSOD, it's happened twice in the past 24 hours (also once a couple days ago, but i don't remember the circumstances), last night was during Steam streaming, and this afternoon using KODI. I've tried all my usual methods for BSOD's but I'm stumped. I've even tried Driver Verifier, but I can't seem to reproduce the BSOD. During my google searches I came across this forum, and tried stress testing with Furmark.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings all,
I'm having a persistent BSOD on boot that seems to me pointing me in the direction of a specific file, nvlddmkm.sys, which Google tells me is an Nvidia driver file. I see plenty of instances of this file causing blue screens but after following the advice listed on those pages and following the common steps one uses to resolve a driver issue I'm not making any progress.

Here's the situation: I'd been using my computer all evening without issues, browsing the web primarily, and the system unexpectedly restarted. During boot my PC hits a snag and blue screens, restarting again. I'm able to boot into safe mode and if I delete my GPU driver in safemode I'm able to boot normally into windows (albeit with only the default VGA driver at 800x600 resolution). To the best of my knowledge (I'm the sole user of this machine) no software or hardware changes have been made to this machine in the past few weeks. I can see on Nvidia's website that the latest driver was published a few weeks ago but I have no recollection of installing it nor did I see any mention of it automatically installing in the background.

Googling leads me to believe that issues with nvlddmkm.sys are pretty common and in no way linked to a specific version of Nvidia's drivers. I followed the most generally agreed upon advice of using the backup copy stored in the Nvidia directory to replace the potentially corrupted one in the System32\Drivers folder and I'm still seeing the same blue screen.

Hey folks, having a slight problem here that I'm hoping to get fixed.

For the past couple of weeks, I've been having a constant BSOD problem that hasn't been fixed, despite formatting and re-installing several times. It's definitely related to drivers, although I'm not sure which.

The biggest problem is, I can't pin down an exact time of when the BSOD will happen. It sometimes happens when I will hook up my external hard-drive, or when I try to boot up iTunes and listen to music. The thing is, it isn't 100% guaranteed that it'll crash when doing these things though, so I haven't been able to know for sure what the cause is.

I've fully updated drivers, and I update via DDL from the manufacturers websites for sound/video/motherboard drivers.

Here's a picture that I took with my camera of the BSOD. (Picture can be large, so had to upload to imageshack for a thumbnail)

Edit: Realized pic isn't loading correctly.

To be honest, I'm really not a software guy. Give me computer parts, and I can assemble the thing in 10 minutes, but tell me to identify a BSOD, and well...

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated!

A:Unsolved BSOD Windows 7 (Driver-related)

If it is drivers about all you can do is install one at a time and check for the problem after each. So many driver problem lately it's hard to nail down exactly which one it might be.

I've seen that Irq less or equal to a few times myself. That was a problem for me also when I moved to Win7 until I bumped up the northbridge voltage a bit.

Good luck with fixing this problem what ever it may be.

Hello, Windows 7 Forums. I wish I could be making a first post on happy terms. Sigh. But in searching for possible solutions to my problem, I found this forum and have learned some pretty nifty things, so I'm hoping I might find at least a little help here.

I'm not a TOTAL technophile, so please bear with me. But. About a year ago, I purchased a brand spanking new Gateway computer. Intel core 2 Quad processor, 6 GB DDR3 Ram, 640 GB HD, Windows 7 (obviously), nVidia GeForce GT 220. That's off the top of my head. As soon as I get the chance I'll post a full report from CPU-Z, I've got my baby turned off at the moment and having a sleep.

If it helps at all to know, I'm not a hardcore PC gamer or anything. There's a couple games I have on the system (and I mean "a couple", my free harddrive space is like... in the several hundred gigs yet!) and they fall WELL beneath the system reqs. But that may be completely irrelevant.

SO. The first problem I had was many months ago, when I brought my baby home and got her set up, I did the whole driver/software thing, and when I got to the GeForce driver, I had some trouble. All of a sudden the screen was PACKED full of garbage, not just a few, but MILLIONS of cluttered pixels flashing all over the place, making everything completely unviewable.

I very quickly rolled back the driver to the next most recent version, and everything was fine. Months go by, no problems whatsoever. Fast forward to just this past weekend. I'm goo... Read more

A:Crashing/BSOD issues, probably driver related...

Well, I did a few good scans, swept a whole bunch of garbage out of the registry, even managed to get the dump files with no problem, with my display settings set to "Classic Windows". I thought, hmm, maybe that's all it needed was a bit of cleaning.

So, I change back to a more...appealing, modern Windows 7 look. I fire up a video player, because my TV's recently died and I'd love to catch a movie.

HANGS. AGAIN. No messages, no warning, no nothing. Just immediate hanging, and I have to pull to plug to shut the machine off. It proceeds to do the exact same thing. Twice in a row. On the START UP SCREEN.

Why. WHY. Augh. Here's the dump files and etc.
