BSOD -ntoskrnl.exe main problem file

Q: BSOD -ntoskrnl.exe main problem file

I've been having problem the past 2 weeks with BSOD. I've run Prime95 for like 2h, no BSOD and the temp is around 75C, I've done some chkdsk on all of my drives. Have one SSD and four HDDs.
I've also run memtest86. First time I got one errr after pass 1 finished and started with pass 2. The test had run for like 2hrs. Then I pulled out one of the RAM(the one closest to the HDD cage), ran the test again for 2,5 passes(2-3hrs), no errors. Ran the RAM I pulled out, same length, no errors. Put the other three back in and ran the test over night for 8hrs, no errors.(??) I think it was around 5-7 passes. Under computer properties it was Installed RAM: 16GB (15,9GB usable)

But I still had problems. Reinstalled Windows 7 Enterprise, installed all the Windows updates and the drivers from Gigabytes webpage, this time without the EasyTune etc.
I also have simple programs like: uTorrent, Minecraft Server, Mumble Server, Wampserver, Plex Media Server and Filezilla Server on it. So no random programs etc.
Still got problems. I've tried to reset BIOS, didn't help. I have changed from IDE to AHCI in the BIOS(cause I have SSD). When I come home today I will try to pull out two RAM and see what happens, if that doesn't help, I will try to run with the two I pull out. I will also try to disconnect the HDDs and only have the SSD plugged in.
I will try to update BIOS too. If none works I will reinstall Windows again and dont install ANYTHING and see what happens. Any ideas? I will upload the dumps here when I get back.

I've searched around the web, here and on Google and it seems it could be: RAM, Graphic Drivers, RAM slot, HDD or Mobo. Hopefully it will be some driver, but it would be weird when I'm downloading from Gigabyte's website. Hope not it is the mobo or hdd. Ram would be okey.
I think it could be the RAM cause I dropped one or two on my motherboard in my other computer when I swaped them out for 32GB in my main computer. That's why I think it could be the RAM, but Memtest86 only showed one error one time. But I will try rerun that test if you guys want me to.
I had linux before Windows 7 and I THINK the computer worked just fine for like a week or so before the problem showed up and I can't remember what could have cause it. The computer is almost a month old now. I was very careful when I put the computer together. I bought everything in parts. Could it be that the pins under the CPU who is crocked when I put the CPU down? I was really carefull.

The BSOD happens randomly. Sometimes if happens after couple of minutes, sometimes it can running for 8hrs. Also it happens when the computer is in idle, when I'm not doing anything.
This morning it happened to times when I was downloading to one of my HDDs.

I've got problems with:

And files:
ntoskrnl.exe(In every BSOD)

I will check rest of the files when I come home from work and also upload the dump files.

Best regards. I really hope you smart people can help me out. I've been trying to fix this problem on my own for 2 weeks now. It starting to piss me off. Lol.

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.)

A: BSOD -ntoskrnl.exe main problem file

Here comes my dumps: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...6_17283367.rar
(Download link don't work for some reason. Check the atteched files further down the thread.)

Does it matter that I use my computer via Remote Access from my main computer? That shouldn't be an issue.

Got a BSOD now when I got home.
This time is was the files: ntoskrnl.exe, tcpip.sys and win32k.sys.

Took out 2 of 4 RAM slots and will see if it BSODs anything. The RAMS are at 1600mhz atm. Shall I change back to 1333mhz?
Under Computer Properties it says: Installed RAM: 8GB (7.88GB usable)

I also use Classic theme on the dekstop. Not the Areo.

EDIT: My Samsung 840 EV 120GB SSD have the latest firmware and the chkdsk didn't show any problems what I could see and Samsung Magician showed that the disk is healthy so I don't think is the SSD anyway.

Atm I'm running with 2x4GB RAM and trying to see if the system is stable. If not, I will try the other two sticks in the meantime you guys look at the dump files.

While the system is running I checked the Event Viewer in Windows under Custom Views->Administrative Events and found these Errors:
Unloading the performance counter strings for service WmiApRpl (WmiApRpl) failed. The first DWORD in the Data section contains the error code.

The performance strings in the Performance registry value is corrupted when process Performance extension counter provider. The BaseIndex value from the Performance registry is the first DWORD in the Data section, LastCounter value is the second DWORD in the Data section, and LastHelp value is the third DWORD in the Data section.

Hello, recently I've been getting BSoDs constantly lately and I have gotten nowhere near fixing this I feel like. When I run "WhoCrash" and analyze the dump file(s), I get this reading:
On Fri 11/16/2012 9:26:10 PM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\111612-17238-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x7EFC0)
Bugcheck code: 0xE1 (0xFFFFF800035D6560, 0x2, 0xFFFFFA8007C18A60, 0xFFFFFA8007C18A60)
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft? Windows? Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that a worker thread completed and returned with IRQL at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

I'm not a "computer-nerd" as much and I'm not taking any classes on computer hardware so far until next year. But I haven't seen any topics that could help me possibly. I believe this may be an issue with memory (I've tried downloading and playing a game and the BSOD would pop-up)

A:BSOD ntoskrnl.exe file

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.

I ran the program BlueScreenView and it noted that the cause of my random BSOD crashes was associated with ntoskrnl.exe. Yet when I did a google search online there was no definitive answer as to why this is occurring.
I have attached the files, per the tutorial, and I'm hoping this forum could help me narrow this problem down.

My system (1 week old)
ASRock Z77 Extreme4
G.Skill 8GB Ram
Crucial M4 main drive (WD EARS(2tb), Hitachi(2tb), Seagate (2tb), and 2 external 3TB drives)
Using SpeedFan I haven't noted a single heat issue.
OS is Windows 7 x64
It is a Dell OEM version.

Any help would be great.

A:Random BSOD associated with ntoskrnl.exe file

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.

* 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 you can contact us if problems arise.
Then make a System Restore p... Read more

I would not worry if the BSOD isn't that frequent.

Please help, how to fix this error ntoskrnl.exe+73969r?

Read other answers


I'm hoping somebody can help me. I have windows 7 ultimate x64 and for a couple of months now I have had constant problems.

Usually it starts with firefox crashing, and always ends up with BSOD. Sometimes I lose the internet and windows colour scheme changes to basic. Other times I will just boot into windows and it will blue screen.

I have done a clean install and still had the same problems. I also bought a new hard drive and did a clean install on that but it still happens, and I also decided to buy a new motherboard as I thought that may be the problem, but after installing that and doing another clean install I still get the same problems.

The dump files say that it is ntoskrnl.exe causing the problems, I have attached my full dump folder.

Can somebody please help me as I have run out of ideas as to what could be causing the problem, thanks.

Hi, Welcome to SF,

I guess the issue is with Memory.

Run the Memory Diagnostic & HD Diagnostic

Also i would recommend to run System Integrity Checker

Start > Run > CMD > Right Click and Run as administrator > SFC/ SCANNOW

Also if your using any third party firewall then try to disable them or uninstall them.



Invalid system memory was referenced. This cannot be protected by try-except,
it must be protected by a Probe. Typically the address is just plain bad or it
is pointing at freed memory.
Arg1: fffffca006b230d0, memory referenced.
Arg2: 0000000000000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.
Arg3: fffff80002a8fb8c, If non-zero, the instruction address which referenced the bad memory
Arg4: 0000000000000007, (reserved)

I recently installed an addition 16gbs of ram (at 24 gigs my mobo can hold 32) in my gaming PC (same brand as what I already have installed). When I was done the BSODs started...again.

I had this happen before and it turned out to be my CPU fan wasn't seated correctly or something like that.

Since the last 9 Months my PC is having BSOD?s randomly.

Caused By Driver: ntoskrnl.exe

In the previous 9 months I spend over 200 hours trying to solve this issue but without success so posting this here is like my last hope?

In Attachment my SF_Diagnostic_Tool File.
Most dmp files in it are Small memory dumps but the most recent one (012314-13494-01.dmp) is a Kernel memory dump I believe.
It may be important to know that these are all my dmp files collected over my different setups
Sometimes if a BSOD happened and a dmp was generated, I copied the dmp file to an external drive and rolled back with my EaseUs Backup to a previous backup to try to go back to a point where the BSOD would not happen. The furthest I went back to a backup of Nov 2012. But the BSOD?s still kept coming.

I tried to read them out with bluescreenview and also use MyEventViewer but with no success.

Thank you so much for your advice and help?

A:Random BSOD's DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE ntoskrnl.exe (SF File incl)

Hi nielsvann.

The BSOD crash dump is incompletely recorded, and so not readable.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus and the touchpad driver, SynTPEnh.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Then put the computer to sleep again, and wake it up. It will BSOD, and hopefully we will get a complete crash dump to determine the root cause of the BSOD.

Hi all!

I'm hoping for a little help in troubleshooting this particular BSOD.

I've attached BlueScreenView's HTML report, the Minidump file created and a Speccy snapshot of the machine on which this happening.

If there is any other information you need, please let me know!

A:BSOD Caused By ntoskrnl.exe, Please See Attached Dump File

Have you added any new hardware or ram as of late? Because some of what i have researched on this points to possible bad hardware and or faulty ram. I would run memtest86+ from the following link and let it do a thorough scan:

Basically ive been having the problem for a few months now, it wasnt as frequent BSOD to start but now the last 2 weeks its been every 2-3 hours, ive tried removing programs from the last few months and downloading driver after driver but i cant seem to find the source of the problem, if you need anymore info feel free to ask.

A:BSOD from Ndis.sys,ntoskrnl.exe & ataport.sys. DMP FILE INSIDE!

Are you using a USB PC Port adapter from 2Wire?

The driver, 2WirePCP.sys seems to have caused the Blue screen that generated the dump file.

I would get an updated driver.

Hi recently i bought a new PC from HP...
Since I bought it, the pc just reboots when a high graphic app is running. Also i get a BSOD message radomly even when i'm running low detail graphic apps. I expect that someone here can please help me with this problem. I've explored somethings and I think the problem is related to ntoskrnl.exe, just analizing most of the dump files. Of course, I am a newbie and I just know the basics of these things.
I attached all the information i got form my pc. I'm also new in this forum so if somethings is missing for you to know about the issue, please tell me.


A:BSOD problem with a new PC: ntoskrnl.exe


If I had to take a guess, I would guess that the hard drive is the problem. Try running SeaTools on it.

One dump blames Norton, so remove it according to these directions:

Norton Product Support | Installation and Uninstall

Also remove Avira, with this tool: http://dlpro.antivir.com/package/rem...l-win32-en.exe

Install Microsoft Security Essentials instead.

Finally, enable driver verifier: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

I am new to this forum and am not very computer savvy. I started having problems with BSOD on my PC last week. It became so frequent that I decided to backup my files and do a system restore in hopes that this would get rid of the problem.

This was not the case however and I am still having BSOD problems, at first I had this problem when running multiple applications, like having mozilla and skype open at the same time, but if I leave my PC on longer the crashes become more frequent, so that even opening up mozilla or chrome can cause it to crash.

I ran a bluescreen viewer report after a couple of the crashes and each time it showed that the problem was with ntoskrnl.exeI've attached the SF diagnostics file. I'd be grateful for any help or advice.

I am also having problems with doing windows updates, everytime I try it says that configuration has failed, not sure if this is related or a different issue.

Hi! This is my first post on this site, hope you guys can help me! I'm getting desperate. (I have attached dump rar file, and also a screencap of BlueScreenView)

I have been getting Blue screen of death's for a few months. I have used BlueScreenView and it is always related to this ntoskrnl.exe , with a bunch of different parameters like "+ee77bb" +f0297 , +75169. My laptop now keeps freezing up like when I'm watching a video or music it will just freeze and glitch and sound like its in robot slow-mo. It's like the processor just can't handle anything at all.

I have looked a tonne on the internet and tried doing these things;

-Updated every driver in Device Manager;
-Done ChkDSk with "Attempted recovery of bad areas" or whatever it says.
-Avira Full system scans.
-I have done cmd + sfc /scannow , a few times now, and it repaired a few things but the glitchiness and slowness remains. I have the CBS log from the scan but I can't upload it to here for some reason.

I would do a system restore except my restore points don't go back far enough, I didn't know in Windows 7 you had to set aside space for that, definitely going to keep heaps of space there for that after this is fixed haha!

These problems seemed to start occurring after installing PDANet network drivers (For ... Read more

My problem started last night around 2 A.M. While playing a game I play very often. Ever since, my computer will have a BSOD every 5 min to an hour after each restart. I downloaded BlueScreenViewer and it says the problem is consistently ntoskrnl.exe and I don't know what to do. I attached the files asked in the sticky and would REALLY like some help. My computer is not even a year old and this is the first episode anything like this has happened to it. Please help.

So i recently upgraded my system, new Motherboard ( Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 ) 16GB of corsair XMS3 2000MHZ 4x4GB, CPU AMD FX-6100. Put it together about 2 weeks ago. I had planned on reinstalling windows 7, i put in the new hardware, windows installed all the new drivers and whatnot, restarted a few times and it was good to go. I installed all the mother board drivers, new video card drivers. Over clocked it to 4.7ghz and it was fine for about 2 weeks. Every once in a while it would throw me a bluescreen but whatever. About 2 days ago is when it really started giving me problems. Several blue screens every day. I downloaded a program called BlueScreenView and it shows me some info but i don't really know how to read it. The first file on the list is the ntoskrnl.exe, which is why i think it may be the culprit. I thought maybe the Overclocking was the issue, i ran fun under prime95 but i restored it back to defaults anyway. I thought for sure it would stop giving me blue screens. That did not fix anything, it's still doing it. I've attached the dmp files, there is lots of old ones, since it's a pretty old install. I figure you guys are probably going to say just to reinstall windows but if i can avoid that it would be nice. The blue screens from april are the ones i'm concerned about

For the past couple of months, I've been getting BSODs every so often. I have just replaced my RAM stick, uninstalled avast and installed Microsoft Security Essentials, my display drivers are up to date (AFAIK), so I have no idea where the problem is coming from. Can someone please help?

Most recent was related to your ATI video driver. I would re-install newest from here. AMD Support & Drivers

In addition I would update your asacpi.sys (yours 2004) the pre 2009 versions are known to cause BSOD's


The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

Please visit this link: Asus tek computer inc. -support- drivers and download p7p55d le

ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS P5K-VM ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards- ASUS P5K-VM

Scroll down to the utilities category, then scroll down to the "atk0110 driver for windowsxp/vista/windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).

Download and install it.

Go to c:\windows\system32\drivers to check and make sure that the asacpi.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (not before).

I would remove sptd.sys (daemon tools)

Please remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp, called sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure

when you're done you can use this Freeware:

MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM (MagicDisc) in its place

Hey guys so I've been getting some random BSOD errors every few days or so. I usually leave my computer on when I am at work or sleep and either when I come home or wake up my computer is off. So I turn it on and it says that the computer didn't shut down properly when I start up. I downloaded the BlueScreenView and noticed I've had some BSOD three times within 10 days. One was a PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA error which I believe was a RAM problem (i bought new RAM and installed it plus OCed it to 2133, but I believe it was making my system unstable so I reset the speed to default and haven't gotten that error again), but after that I've gotten two IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL errors related to ntoskrnl.exe. I did some research online and from what I read it could be a number of problems. I'm just not sure where to start and could really use some guidance and advice. I uploaded my dmp files for anyone who knows how to look at these.

Thank in advance.

My computer crashes often with blue screen errors. I have spent a lot of time trying to solve this with no luck.

It is more likely to crash when I do certain things. Most specifically, it crashes often when I get into a loading screen for the game "league of legends". It may crash at any moment, however. It sometimes even crashes when I start it before it gets into windows. Sometimes the computer just freezes and I have to restart it. And sometimes when I restart it, it goes to a black screen and just sits there without loading windows and I have to restart it again.

Here is the blue screen dump information: http://1drv.ms/1FdVPsr
OS: windows 10
cpu: amd phenom x4 965 black edition
gpu: nvidia GeForce GT 240
MB: MSI 870-G54

I forget the other specs but can open up my pc and check if necessary. The computer was built in 2010

I have:
updated all drivers
reinstalled windows (using windows 10's tool to remove everything and reinstall windows at once)
run windows memory diagnostic and removed a bad stick of ram
reset bios

I still have the problem. My computer crashes multiple times per day (most of the minidump files were lost when I reinstalled windows, but this has been happening for months now). I think when I reset windows it kept the same drivers but I think I've updated all of them. I don't know what driver or whatever is causing the problem.

Anyone have advice? Should I plan on buying new hardware?

I'm getting random Blue Screens and can't figure out why. I'm not running any hardcore programs. I'm mostly just using Microsoft Office and Firefox. The BSOD's seem to happen when I'm in Outlook, Excel or Firefox. Haven't been able to determine exactly which at the time as I'm moving back and forth between them quite often.

I've tried the SFC command and it didn't find anything. I used BlueScreenViewer but not a lot of help. All drivers for sound and video have been updated. I've also updated the firmware to the Crucial M4 SSD version 040H.

(unrelated:how could I make nice table above?)

I have searched the forum.

Problem 1: BSOD randomly, usually graphics related. eg, flash games in chrome, graphics related software (Mathematica).

Problem 2: I use an internet usb 3G device to connect to internet. Every morning the device will not connect to internet and computer will hang on shutting down screen when I restart. I have to manually turn off and back on again. I think this may be a dying capacitor on motherboard that needs 2 boot's to get excited.

Problem 3: Chrome "aw snap" happens regularly and is usually flash content related, even ad banners seem to cause it from time to time. I have reinstalled chrome, checked plugins etc etc no luck. Internet explorer runs stable,but for example in flash games it seems to momentarily freeze and then catch up with itself again. These are moments where I think chrome would have crashed.

Things I've done:

1) SFC scan. All's well.

2) Memtest. I did 1 pass, it took an hour, everything fine. Will put it on over night tonight.

**************UPDATE 5 ****************

The sequence of events went as follows.
RAM test 1 pass was passed. Verifier.exe caused immediate BSOD on windows start when activated. Trying to hunt down drivers revealed any combo of 3 or more drivers gave BSOD at startup. Randomly decided to recheck RAM. Failed memtest after 27 minutes pass 1. Found one RAM stick that passed after one pass slot0. Got fed up of waiting for other slot's. Devised a plan to use verifier to check the RAM by seeing which combo's of RAM sticks gave BSOD on startup. All combo's passed. And now verifier does not give BSOD on any setting. Began to hate life. Cheered myself up with prospect of sleep. Put all 16 Gb RAM in properly and ran mentest for 18 hours, 6 passes. No error. Still no verifier.exe errors when enabled. Wrote this update.

If RAM failed after 27min one test, and then after swapping around a retest of 18 hours has no error, one would presume the RAM may be ok. Equally, I believe one could say the RAM is suspect. So, if the test is failed it really doesn't tell us anything except there is a problem somewhere. But we know there is a problem since we have BSOD!!! If I hadn't rerun the test I wouldn't question the RAM.

So the question is: how do I categorically ensure that a stick of RAM is good? Is memtest on RAM with an alternative working computer enough?

In summary:

I ran memtest for 18 hours, which was 6 passes. No problems detected. Using verifier.exe with pro... Read more

Hello everyone, if you do not mind, i go straight to the point

As the title says i have a serious issue with BSoDs and freezing. First i'll go into detail about bluescreens

These ones happen whenever i play any games with my computer. They're mostly random, and i have not seen any kind of pattern or spesific times when they happen. Computer doesn't overheat (i've checked the temperatures when in game using RealTemp) and any kind of lag is not present. I got completely new GPU from warranty yet these problems still exist.

Now about freezing problem. This issue is new and came along with the new graphics card. Like the BSoDs, these also happen completely random times. Sometimes whole computer simply freezes, sometimes i am able to move mouse around after few seconds. Other things include sudden screen shut down and recovery, along with a notice "Windows Kernel driver 320.somehing has stopped working and recovered". I don't remember correctly. There is an occasion when my computer freezes for few seconds and then works almost properly. The cursor, you see, is all screwed up. I've added photos of the cursor (although they are pretty bad)

Strange thing is that BSoDs only happens in games, and freezing only happens in normal use

Any suggestions and help is welcome

For around two or three months the system has been crashing on a weekly or biweekly basis and wasn't so much of a problem as to interfere and warrant investigation on my part. Within the past few days, however, it has gotten much worse and now crashes at least once daily. I have done what I can with my limited computer skills and determined ntoskrnl.exe is the culprit and followed some potential solutions found on this forum as well as other sites but to no avail. Although it may be mere coincidence, I feel it is worth noting that the vast majority of crashes (90%+) occur when the computer has been left on but I am not currently at the desk working on anything. Any help would be much appreciated, thank you!

When I put my pc in sleep mode it often crashes: the screen goes normally in sleep mode, but the pc continues to stay awake for several minutes than BSOD & restart or BSOD & shut off.
Thanks to BlueScreenView I found what is seemingly the guilty process, but I don't know what to do now.

If it's a necessary driver then update it but if not then please completely remove it.
I'm not that familiar with such devices but it should be under Network Adapters, right click on the device and click properties, then click on the driver tab and update.

I've had 3 BSOD in the last few days, usually when my computer is asleep or when I am not actively using it. Malwarebytes anti-malware software indicates no issues, as does esot nod antivirus5.

Ran a free program (BlueScreenView v1.47 by nirsoft) which indicated a driver power state failure and/or a ntoskrnl.exe problem.

I do not know how to proceed, and would love some advice!

Recently I got a few bluescreens while playing World of Warcraft, which I thought was very weird, because all of my hardware is pretty new. Here is some info about my computer:

Intel i5 4690 3.5-3.9 GHZ
EVGA GTX 970 SSC (super superclocked - the fans are designed not to turn on until card reaches 60c)
16gb Hyper X Fury ram
1tb WD Black HDD
Windows 7 OS

At first, I noticed three bluescreens, then I used EVGA Precision X with a custom aggressive fan profile and the problem went away temporarily, but then the computer crashed later on. I'm not sure if that's relevant or not. I ran a diagnostic on my harddrive and processor, and both were fine. The RAM seems more difficult to test because it said something about usb drives, so I decied to stray away from that unless it was absolutely necessary (and then get help from someone who knows what they're doing!)

I am going to upload the dump files that were saved by bluescreenview. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

A:BSOD ntoskrnl.exe address ntoskrnl.exe+74ec0

CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION BSODs (0xf4) are usually related to an issue with the hard drive.

If you have an SSD, make sure that the firmware is upgraded.

If HDD, run SeaTools for DOS, LONG test - Hard Drive (HDD) Diagnostics - Sysnative Forums

Hi there,

Recently I've been getting BSOD while playing WoW. I'm not sure what details to give other than the dump so I'll just tell you about my computer:

Intel i5 4690 3.5-3.9 GHZ
EVGA GTX 970 SSC (super superclocked - the fans are designed not to turn on until card reaches 60c)
16gb Hyper X Fury ram
1tb WD Black HDD
Windows 7 OS

I noticed that I haven't crashed yet while EVGA Precision X is up (it has a custom aggressive fan curve I made). Maybe this has to do with the fact that it replaces fan drivers, or something? I don't know. I'm pretty clueless as to what's going on because all these parts are pretty new and it only recently started, but it's crashed three times today. Here are the dumps.
Any help you guys can give would be greatly greatly appreciated. Thanks a ton!

I keep getting a BSOD (Critical_Object_Termination) but have no idea what is causing the issue. I tried in vain to debug my own minidump files but ended up getting nowhere.

So far i have run MemTest over the weekend with 107 passes. I also ran Prime95 64-bit for 4 hours on each of the FFT tests without error.

I have enabled driver verifier (following the guide on this site) and this has not caused anynew BSOD's.

I also get a random BSOD on startup but it has happened so infrequently i have been unable to boot with disable automatic restart on system failure enabled to capture the stop code.

I really could do with some expert advice please.

This is my first post so i apologise if i have missed something important but i have tried to read as much info as possible before posting.

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing these BSOD errors? It started with the +74200 error about a month ago (enduser is just now informing IT) and now it is the +73c40. I've already done several Memory tests to no avail. I'm about to just
reimage but don't want to if it's just a driver issue.

Hi, I've been having this BSOD appear very randomly.

(all reports in .rar file)

Sometimes within 1 hour, other times as long as 24hrs+. I've got my BIOS/Drivers up to date for my CPU, Graphics Card, and Motherboard. I've rigorously tested my memory and have never had any issues arise.

It has occurred during
3d gaming,
when the system has been idle,
also when browsing with firefox or ie.

Any help at all would be appreciated, I've struggled with this BSOD for years I would love to finally find whats causing it.

Thank you.

First lets start with asacpi.sys yours dated 2005

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

Please visit this link: ASUS teK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE

Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.SYS file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).
