BSOD - Multiple processes fail, then system stops BSODs.

Q: BSOD - Multiple processes fail, then system stops BSODs.

Please help! My computer is quite new, and I need to find out if I have faulty hardware (and what it is) so I can get a replacement under warranty.

64bit Windows Home Premium OEM
3 month old install.
3 month old hardware.
No overclocking.
Home built.

i7 2600
850w corsair power supply.
G-Skill 10666 dual channel 8gb (1333)
120gb OCZ Vertex 3 ssd
2tb Samsung something something
2 x Gainward GTX570 GLH in SLI
Z68X-UD3R-B3 motherboard
Onboard sound (optical out and stereo out)

I'm not sure what's causing the crash. It happens randomly. Generally after a few hours of use. Many things can trigger it - watching a movie, playing games, and the last one - trying to shut down.

I have attached the logs.



Preferred Solution: BSOD - Multiple processes fail, then system stops BSODs.

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.)

i am not computer illiterate.. i am usually pretty savvy at fixing problems on my laptop... but this... i have never seen before...

long story short. i tried to get rid of the virus on my computer by installing AVG 8 internet security ... after installation and cleanup everything was good at this point.... however i accidently deleted bout 5 files from my Recovery partition.... due to the virus vault being full...
i dont think problems were cause by this... but this causes a big problem later on...

i normally run utorrent 24/7.... and it hasnt caused a problem.... but bout 2 days ago.. i started to get BSOD and restarts... it occured infrequently(2 days ago)... but have been increasing to bout every 10-20min(today). so i uninstalled AVG 8. i did several registry clean. and other system checks...

but i am STILL either getting BSOD or system lockup(everythin freezes)
and i would need to force shut off and restart...
i took a look at the minidumps... to try to pin down to the problem....
but the problem is its multiple causes..

some of the minidump says its caused by explorer.exe, other says its svhost.exe , and one file even says Utorrent exe(when utorrent wasnt runnin.. it was caused by some other process). 1 of the file says its caused by memory corruption.
heres some others..
services.exe --> sptd.sys..

i got over 15 minidump files.... and restart count well into the 60s.... so u get the idea...

is there a way i can fix this without reins... Read more

Hi.  I downloaded some stuff from a bogus Minecraft site and have had multiple problems since.  Everything got encrypted, but I didn't pay cuz I had copies, then I had multiple comsurrogate processes, and now I hav e high CPU usage, a program called "conhost.exe" that doesn't have a valid file location or service associated with it, and various programs spike randomly to 20% -30% cpu usage, keeping me in the 70 - 80% range.  Additionally, since I got the encryption virus, powershell stops working every few minutes.  And some computer company who says they are a "legitimate company" has been calling me and they want me to connect to their server through the run command line. 
I am running Windows 8.1
I have followed a couple fix threads and at various times have run rogue killer, emisoft and a couple others. Found some viruses, but still have the above problems.

I have a serious problem. My computer keeps crashing over, and over again. The errors it's thrown are listed below. I've googled them but am confused as to what the problem really is. All I know is I'm about to lose my mind because I can be surfing, chatting, or gaming and my PC will just crash for no reason whatsoever and most of the time it's without any warning given.

I've replaced my sound card, my gfx card, and updated my BIOS so what gives? I've been told it might be my RAM, my power supply, my cpu, ore my mobo so I dunno what to do. Thanks in advance for any and all responses.

Hi. I recently built a comp with the following specs: Asus Stiker Extreme mobo, Intel QX6700, liquid cooled (Thermaltake), 2 Gb Patriot Extreme (DDR2 800, 1x2), 650W power supply, one GeForce 6800 XT, raptor 150gb and 300gb Seagate data drive. The processor normally runs around 30C +/- 3 degrees.

I keep getting BSOD's at different addresses. A common one is:
Error code 100000d1, parameter1 ffffff80, parameter2 000000ff, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 7c911924.

Another is Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c0000005, parameter2 805525a1, parameter3 b55f0ee0, parameter4 00000000.

An yet another, Error code 1000000a, parameter1 7fb1340c, parameter2 000000ff, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 804de7fe.

I've read about a lot of problems with this board, one being the nvidia firewall so I uninstalled it. I've also rum memtest and let it run for over 10 passes with no errors. However, I've used a program called Everest and run tests on my hardware components. The test will stop after about 3 minutes on the memory but I can't tell why (I'm new to this prog). It just says that the system has become unstable and must abort the test. I'm not overclocking any of the components in the BIOS. I've downloaded and installed the latest BIOS and device drivers from the Asus website.

Any ideas? Thanks for taking the time to read this post and any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi all, i've attached the required files about my system.

Im running Windows 7 on my laptop, 64bit
Was installed as an upgrade from XP I believe (was a while ago so cant remember exactly).
The hardware is around 2 years old now and the OS was installed soon after that.

Clevo W860U laptop
Intel i7 Q720
4GB RAM (2x2gb)
Win 7 Pro 64bit (build 7600 6.1)
nVidia GTX280M

The laptop crashes with BSOD around 10 times a day now, says 'MEMORY MANAGEMENT' error usually. I guessed it's ram but wanted an expert opinion before buying new sticks.

Dear community,

For the last month or so, I have been having days where there would be multiple BSODs in a row and I can not even use my laptop properly. Now I don't know enough about computers to be able to fix this problem myself, and that is why I've come here to ask for help.

Today I have been getting multiple BSODs, like:
aswvmm.sys / aswbidsha.sys / ntfs.sys / win32k.sys and wdf0100
And also a lot on 0x00001E / 0x0000007E / 0x00000024 and on 0x0000003B
Each with different messages like SYSTEM SERVICE EXCEPTION or IRQL_NOT LESS OR EQUAL and many more.

After googling a bit and running different memtests, RAM tests, chkdsk, virus scans, malware scans and upgrading my drivers using DriverBooster 4.4, I am still getting blue screens, random crashes or restarts on my laptop. By now I'm at the end of my tries and so I've come here to ask for help.

Not all bluescreens have gotten to a full 100 complete dump, but I have added all 3 minidump files into a zip file, I have attached my system.nfo and I have made a snapshot with Speccy of my computer stats.

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.

I put together this computer about a year ago. It's waranty hasn't expired yet. We took it to a repair center and they reinstalled the OS and said it works fine, next day I started getting BSODs again.

I allways get around 4-5 BSODs at start-up, but also when opening a program or a game, after returning from stand-by, and sometimes without doing anything.

I checked the memory, I ran stress tests on the CPU and Video board, reseting BIOS and installing other OS. I could not install Windows XP due to BSODs at the 3rd step.

Here is my PC configuration:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
Motherboard ACER G33T-AM
Memory DDR2 size: 2048 MB (Single channel)
Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT

I have atached the BSOD dump files and perfmon/report file.

I apolagise for my faulty english, as it is not my mother tongue.
I hope you'll be able to help me. Thanks!!

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.

Hi everyone!

My computer keeps encountering multiple BSODs (with a variety of error codes). Usually after the BSOD, I'm unable to boot up my computer as it goes into a continuous loop of turning off and on without being able to load up anything (can't even go into POST screen). I would have to wait for a day or half a day (if I'm lucky) to get it to work again. One worrying thing is that it occasionally goes into some BIOS auto-recovery thing after it turns on.

This problem started occuring almost half a year ago already and thus I don't think system restore can help me. Also, memtest and checkdisk found no major problems (Avast! and AVG scans were negative). I have also tried and tested various "software" solutions.

My computer is 3-year-old and is on a Gigabyte (Intel P45 chipset) mainboard with 2*1GB RAM and ATI Radeon HD4850.

I have attached my dump files (most of them as there're just too many of them for me to run debug on) in this post.

Thank you all in advance!

Hello guys, i am struggling with this laptop for a long time now and i came to you, i have no other solution left.

Samsung Series 7 NP700Z7C-S01UK bought at the beginning of October 2012, started to BSOD around May 2013. From May to late September the laptop was NEVER user, at the end of September i took it to Samsung Repair Center. They weren't able to reproduce the BSODS and said that the hardware is fine. Still does that.

I am currently running on Windows 7 Home Premium x64, the one that came preinstalled, reinstalled it middle of October. Windows updated, all the updates from the Samsung App (SW Update) are installed. Nothing left behind. I used memtest, furmark and prime95. No errors. Already checked my disk, no errors either. Tried already to upgrade my Nvidia graphic card to the last version (although SW Update doesnt tell me about that)... still the same problem, same with the directx. Reinstalled windows multiple time, from recovery, from a different source, same problems.

With Blue Screen Viewer these are my 'caused by driver' instances:
NETwsw00.sys x2
ntoskrnl.exe x8

The BSODS happen when i'm gaming, but to be honest with you, i am most of the time gaming so i dont now if that is the cause or is just rules of probability. it also happened when i was reinstalling windows from the recovery partition, when browsing over the internet or watching a movie. No precise pattern.

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!

(Backed up all my files, now can't recover them but I'll check into that elsewhere on the forum!!). The problem went away for a few starts, then returned.

After hours with HP Support, I was told to remove all 4 memory sticks and reseat them. Quite a feat for someone with MS, but finally got it done. Now the computer is running great, but I don't know if the problem is solved. There are no faults showing in the Windows Error file since I worked on the memory.

Is it possible to look at this and see if my problem is solved?

Thank you,

Hello Jim, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Hopefully it was only your RAM sticks not properly seated that caused it.

Please go ahead read the instructions here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions, and post back with the needed information if it's available. One of our BSOD experts should be by afterwards to further help.

So, I was getting bored and decided to follow up on some of the performance tweeking I've been doing. Anyway, I got a bit sidetracked and decided to go to the "Reboot Time" tread, which them prompted me to go ahead and diable some of my useless startup processes. Thing is, something strange kind of popped out at me... Why are there two "Microsoft Windows Operating System" processes when as far as I can tell from the reboot thread, people have 1?

I'm assuming it isn't smart to randomly diable either, so I came here to ask.

A:Multiple "Windows Operating System" Startup Processes?

It has to do with your Sidebar/gadgets. But I don't know why you would have two though. You might expand it to look at what it all says and post it. It's best not to start disabling services and startup items if you're not fully aware of what they do. If you want to speed up performance then I suggest reading thru Brinks tutorial on how to speed things up.

Hello everyone!

Hope i stuck this in the right forum, anyway, here goes:

My computer gave off a BSOD when i was watching a bit or World Cup action and has failed to boot since. I've been mucking about with all kinds of fixes for the last 4 days but i've been unable to get it running again. I don't want to do a format / reinstall, i've got some important data i'd like to keep hold of.

I've tried a few things:

- Did a full virus scan with the Kaspersky Recue disk. Removed a number of dodgy files. Let me to believe my MBR might be ruined
- Did a CHKDSK on all my drives. Everthing checks out OK, even tho it took ages.
- Tried to fix my MBR with BootRec, but to no avail. Gives off a Element Not Found message when tring FixBoot and RebuildBcd
- Ran the Repair Tool a few times, gives the same message each time: "The partition table does not have a valid System Partition" in the log

When i boot up it gets past the animated logo but restarts after briefly showing a black screen with a cursor, which i can move around. Same goes for safe mode.

I'm at wits end here guys, i've been able to fix every problem i've had by myself, but i'm not working this one out. Understand my agony of not being able to watch the World Cup on my computer (i dont own a TV) and having to rely on my radio, which is fun as well, but you know Any help is greatly appreciated!

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

I have noticed that on my PC IE seems to run GREATLY faster than Opera and Mozilla Firefox when many windows are open, but it lacks the features and add-in support I need. I have found that the reason it is so much faster is because it opens a seperate process for each window that is open while mozilla and opera only use one process for everything. Is it at all possible to somehow use Opera or Mozilla and have one process per window or tab like IE has?

I really need to know if this is possible because more than one person uses this computer and lots of windows and tabs are eventually open, but when I have over 10 tabs or windows open running from the same process on this computer, it eventually gets so slow that it is almost unusable (most windows become almost unresponsive and get blank for a few seconds when you click)

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I've been having BSOD trouble over the past four or five months now. The BSODs typically happen once a week, sometimes twice, with small strings of daily crashes here and there. I'm at my wit's end when it comes to trying to figure out where the problem lies. All of my parts are under warranty, so I'm desperate to find out which one, if any, are at fault.

I've tested my hardware extensively. Memtest86 for 7 passes on multiple occasions, using different stick and slot combinations. Ran torture tests using Prime95 for the processor. All hard drive checks come back without problems. Ran Furmark on my video card with no artifacts.

The BSODs happen most commonly when using video playlists for both Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic, multiple types of files. They also sometimes occur when playing particular games (Borderlands II, Dark Souls). Installing a fresh copy of Windows 7 did not remove BSODs, even after running it in factory settings with no additional installations.

I have attached a dump file, and I thank whoever attempts to assist me.

A:Multiple BSODs, Multiple Bugchecks (0xD1, 0x3B, 0x50, 0x0A)

Hi anthonylert.

The versatility of the bugchecks are the indication of failing memory prima facie, but as you said you ran Memtest86, can you run the memtest86+?

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Also, disable bluetooth,at least as a test. The Atheros bluetooth module is appearing to be failing.

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.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Let us know the results.

Last couple weeks i've been having a large amount of bluescreens, including but not limited to bccodes 116, d1, 4e, 1a, 50 and 7a. Last night it also froze two or 3 times with no bluescreen. I recently upgraded my Phenom 9550, Biostar A770E and 6GB of DDR2-800 with an i5-2500k, an MSi P67S-C43 and 4GB of DDR3-1333. The problems didn't start with the hardware upgrade, just escalated.

Yesterday I formatted my HDD and did a clean install of windows in hopes that my problems were just driver conflicts, so as of now i only have 3 crash dumps, 4e, d1 and 1a. 4e and 1a in BlueScreenView only show ntoskrnl as the culprit and no other drivers. d1 points at both ntfs.sys and ntoskrnl. A couple of the old crash dumps pre-format were citing nVidia and DirectX drivers.

I've put my RAM through 16hrs+ of memtest86+ testing, and used the windows memory diagnostic and the memory test in my BIOS. I also checked my PSU voltages with a multimeter, all of them check out. My graphics card is moody and sometimes artifacts heavily in games, sometimes works fine. Temperatures are not an issue, My GPU gets to about 72C in games and 86C in furmark torture testing without crashing. my CPU sits around 38C idle, 50-60 load, 70-80 in p95 without crashing.

Intel Core i5-2500k (stock cooler and clock)

Hey there,

So just to start things off, I'm 18 and don't really have much technical knowledge when it comes to computer hardware and errors, etc.

I started getting BSODs a while back, but they weren't very frequent, so I uninstalled all the programmes I had on my laptop and it stopped for the most part, so I assumed that was the problem.
As time went on up until now, they have been getting much more frequent, with the error message at the top stating something different each time, getting what seemed more serious. Sometimes when I get 1 BSOD, it would BSOD again on Startup, then again after that, which is rather frustrating haha.
I was reluctant to posting on forums, but it's come to the point of either fixing it logically, or ending up punching the screen xD

I can't really define when it happens, as it's more often some times than others, I have a hinch it has something to do with my graphics card though, as I would be playing a game, then I'd open up a new tab and watch a video then get BSOD at some point.
However it happens (less frequently for the most part) when idle or with minimum programmes running.

The programmes I mainly use on the laptop is:

Google Chrome
Sony Vegas Pro 11 (Video Editing Software)
Total Media Extreme (Personal Video Recording Software)

I can't remember any of the actual error codes, but some of the display messages i can remember are:

Brace yourselves for quite a saga:

In the beginning...I bought an HP 2710p tablet with Vista, on which I installed the upgrade to Windows 7. It worked wonderfully and I loved it.

After a few months of working well, I started getting strange symptoms. It started with not recognizing (some) USB devices unless the computer was started with them plugged in. Then, a failure to shut down correctly. After selecting shut down, Windows 7 would give me the "Logging Off..." screen, then move to the "Shutting Down..." screen and stay there indefinitely. The only way to shut down the system was by the physical power button.

So that was concerning, but turning it back on was fine, and everything but shutting down was normal. Then another development: whenever I left the computer on and unused for any period of time, it would restart. On logging in, windows would tell me "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown," telling me the reason was BlueScreen (and some diagnostic info I don't remember but that proved no help anyway). Of course, clicking "check for solution" did no good.

I figured I'd wait till the semester was done to figure out what on earth was up...which of course it didn't let me do. Upon trying to turn it on once, I was surprised with an immediate BlueScreen and "Windows failed to start."

I consulted with a GeekSquad guy who suggested I might have been suffering from a corrupted hard drive. So ... 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.

I've got me a new MSI P67A GD65 motherboard with an Intel i5 2500. Can't seem to get windows working right. So far I've installed on several hard drives, checked memory with BIOS tool, windows test and memtest86+, all passed.
The problem is that my usb (logitech) mouse stops working every now and then. It stops after it's been idle for a while (when i watch a movie or go out etc), or when windows update fails. Which it does a lot btw. It works fine after a reboot. A nice side effect of my not-working mouse is that windows can't shut down when it happens.
I also have experienced a nice amount of BSOD's since my upgrade, including:
Bad pool header
Page fault in nonpaged area
irql not less or equal
usb bug code
As this has worked with my older system, is this a windows or hardware issue?

ps just installed zonealarm free, and it looked fine, but when it started scanning for programs, the mouse stopped again...?

Hey really lost on this one as I have not really dealt with BSODS before. I build my computer a couple months ago. Recently while gaming I have had roughly 5 BSODS. They are all for different things it seems like and I have no clue how to fix it. It wont do it while sitting on the computer on firefox or just the desktop but usually an hour into gaming I will start to get them. Any help would be greatly appreciated as my computer did not do this when I first built it! Thank you! I attached my file from your guys tool that you requested. Also I dont know if it makes a difference or not but when the computer crashes, all of my desktop shortcuts will be in random places not where I originally placed them.

I recently bought a new computer, an Asus G-Series gaming notebook. Everything has been fine with it, haven't had a problem until now and I was even getting used to Windows 8.

I turned it off this morning after playing some games and came back several hours later to play some more. My sound will not work - even when I try to test the sound nothing comes out. Video playback stops after 2-3 seconds of play. Applications fail to run properly; as an example, Teamspeak will start up fine but cannot connect to any servers, Final Fantasy XIV's patcher starts up fine but will not connect after trying to start the game, the Steam client runs in the background doing nothing after being started - it runs until it tries to verify installation and then just does nothing.

I've been looking around online for some method of solving this, but every time I come across a forum post it's not the same problem I'm having.

Hi, My friend is having a lot of blue screens, so I thought I'd check them with windbg and I'm a newbie so I just looked at the processes, bucket ids and googled them to see if anyone else has the problems, I am now clueless because they all seem to be different and so I need an experts opinion. I have attached all of the minidumps, I can get him to run the system finder bit if you need.

His specs are as follows:
i5 4440
Windows 7
Palit GTX 750 Ti graphics card

If you need any more info, please ask.

Also, it cannot be nullified that there is a high probability that the memory is failing, anyhow. So, test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Let us know the results. Further troubleshooting may be needed depending on the results.

Hi. Last year, I bought a new PC for graphical software and gaming. From the beggining it had problems (I was recieving BSODs), so, I tested RAMs. It resulted that RAMs we're bad. I returned them in warrantly. (The PC was assembled by the shop, components we're choosen by me so that aren't any compatibility problems). Ok, so, I recieved new RAMs. But, even now, problems still exist. Now, even more, I recieve artifacts when I open a intensive graphical app (in some cases,even Youtube causes them). The more I stay on that app, more artifacts appear, until I recieve a AMD Display driver crash and, after that, a BSOD (sometimes,it directly gives BSOD, without driver crash). I tried to interchange RAM positions in all possible ways, but it didn't worked.
The GPU can't be placed on the 2nd PCI-E slot, because it is too long, and reaches the HDDs cage. I even tried a BIOS update (it worked, but it didn't helped me). I know that I removed the BIOS battery, I left it about 1 minute out, and put it back. That night, PC worked well. Next morning... The problem appeared again. I also tested CPU and HDDs, and they're all good. Can you guys help me? I remained out of ideas. Thanks!
As the BSODs appears, I will upload screenshots too. I don't have now any screenshots with BSODs. Instead, I used the program from the BSOD help, and I made a log, attached to this post.

Hey. I've been having a lot of trouble with my PC lately. Randomly it has been freezing and going to a bsod. It started a couple months ago but recently has been getting worse. When it occurs the mouse gets very buggy and ultimately freezes up and then goes to BSOD.

Been receiving random bluescreens on this makeshift desktop for a while now.
Reports are attached. Reinstalled OS yesterday. Received a bluescreen again this morning.

A:Pretty random BSODs // Suspecting GPU fail

1. 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 - Downloads DuplexSecure - FAQ

when you're done you can use this Freeware:

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

Using MagicISO to create ISO image files

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be ... Read more

Please see my final post for how this was resolved.

Have had several BSODs in last few days, sometimes when I have walked away from laptop so not sure what I might have done to trigger things. Two of most recent referred to nusb3xhc.sys
Other symptoms: I have 3 WesternDigital 500GB ext. USB 2.0 HDs none of which are being recognized even when plugging directly in to laptop USB port rather than USB hub I usually use. Same USB port will show a small thumb drive. USB 3.0 laptop port still works, and I backed up my data this morning; browser bookmarks, etc. While the WD HDs are all older, it is very odd to me that they none of them are recognized, meaning they never show up in WE and the tray icon for USB never shows them as I typically click on the latter to eject an ext. USB HD.

Recent changes to laptop:
1) 6.1.2014 installed MS OneDrive (and also on tablet). version 17.0.4041.0512
2) Control Panel add/remove programs shows that Dropbox installed version 2.8.2 just before OneDrive

3) Subsequent to above I did routine Windows update of Important items with no problems. However for several years since about IE 9 or perhaps 10, I have been unable to get IE to install and work, and have been using Chrome for years. I mention this to give fuller picture, but doubt that it is related to current issue.

4) Aside from typical routine updates e.g. Java, Bitdefender antivirus I have not intentionally installed any other software recently.

I have barely begun using MS On... Read more

I just built a new system over the weekend, but have been suffering from random crashes. I thought it was due to Norton Antivirus 2010 but I have still been getting the BSOD. I'm running on Windows 7 64 bit. I am pretty sure I've updated all my drivers but I may have missed something. I will attach a minidump file as well.

I've just upgraded from Windows 8 Pro 32 bit (absolutely stable), to a new machine running 64 bit (buggy as hell)
It seems as though there may be some kind of hardware fault as the thing crashes constantly, with different error mesages and I can't access the start-up options to disable automatic restart, therefore can't get a look at the error messages properly. I'm thinking at the moment it may be a faulty RAM stick... but it runs happily for a while, multi-applications in full flight, stable, fast; useful... then suddenly ..BAM! BsoD and reboot...
Getting irritating. Ran MEMTEST overnight... nothing. Ran SeaTools for Windows... nothing.
Any observations?

Recently, while taking my Vista x64 Ultimate computer out of sleep mode, a power outage occurred. When I turned my computer back on, no 32 bit applications run - not even the operating system's own services such as Windows Installer will run if they are 32-bit.

I tried typing 'firefox' in the Task Manager to see what happened. The process appeared for a moment, then was instantly killed. I don't know why. The Windows event log has been unhelpful in diagnosing the problem.

I also looked at Task manager at startup, and saw that all the * 32 processes were dying moments after Vista boots and show the desktop.

I have tried system restore, nothing worked. I tried to auto-repair my system in the windows recovery console, that didn't work either. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem short of simply reinstalling the OS, which I am reticent to do? If so, what should I do?

Before the outage, this problem had not occurred.

My hardware:

Core 2 Quad
9600GT Video
780i SLI mobo
DVD drive


A:Power outage during computer wake-up stops 32-bit processes from running

Power outage when the disc is spinning usually means PC death, so you're lucky you managed to get it to boot at all.

I'd reinstall no matter what.

Why when something like AIM, or another program, stops responding, and I have to close it. I can't get it to re-open. It still shows up on the processes list on the task manager, but it won't let me 'end task' on it.

The only way I can get the program to open again is by restarting my computer .

A:After prog stops responding and I close, still shows up in processes, can't re-open

Hi and Welcome to TSF.

The only thing that comes to mind is the "tskill" command executed from an elevated command prompt.

START | type cmd.exe in the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select Run as Administrator | at the command prompt type tskill 9999 (where the 9999 = the PID - Process ID obtained from Task Manager)

Good Luck.

Hello everyone,

I have a problem with the updating of my adapters. This happens sometime after one hour sometimes after a week. The computer works just fine afterwards aside that I can not use any Lan adapter anymore or any other adapter like usb. When I shut down my Laptop afterwards it always crashes.

Sometimes after restart I get an error message which I saw in a different thread, but there it was told that for a new problem regarding this a new thread should be opened.
Windows 8 Crash Memory.dmp


Where I wrote (...) normally stand numbers but since I don't know which numbers appeared last time and when I will receive this error message again I shortened it like this. I hope someone is able to help me nevertheless.

Many thanks in Advance and I hope I provided you with every needed information!
