Preferred Solution: My PC Crash/Freeze While playing games or watching movies on full screen

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

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

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

A:BSOD only when playing games or watching movies

Please provide this info so we can see more info about the system's issues: http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ta-452654.html

If you've reinstalled Windows, then it's most likely a hardware issue. But running a hard drive diagnostic is needed to rule out the hard drive: HD Diagnostic (read the details at the link).

The memory dumps seem to suggest that a driver is to blame - but there's only 3 of them so it's difficult to see if there's a pattern that indicates a hardware problem.

Please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions. I'd like to see at least 2 memory dumps from running Driver Verifier:

Quote:




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.

So, 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 point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"

This has been happening for a very long time now. Everytime I am playing a game and watching a movie at the same time, my computer gets the BSOD. It will either just freeze both my monitors and then lead to BSOD, or it will start giving off weird colored lines and different colored pixels across both screens.

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
MOBO: EVGA nForce 780i SLI 775 A1 Version

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hello, I had my custom PC built over a year ago, but I encounter constant BSOD errors that happen quite randomly. Some days I get no errors at all, while other times my system will crash seconds after starting a game. Two of the most common errors include the "irql_not_less_or_equal", and the "atidvag" error. I know that the atidvag error relates to my graphics card (XFX Radeon 6850) and I am also aware of the proper method for uninstalling its drivers but neither updating nor rolling back the drivers seem to do any good.

I have included my "collection" of dump files which is quite extensive... Any help would be appreciated and thanks.

A:BSOD While Playing PC Games, web browsing, watching movies

Checked two of the latest dumps (the others are months old) which does not give a true sense of a failing GPU or graphics issue or anything similar, but it appears to be something else. In order to take some decisions, I need to see your msinfo32.nfo file; but the uploaded one is corrupted. Better you do it for one more time .... 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.

 Hi... 
 
I'm having a real issue with my WMP and VLC...
While watching movies, I am getting popping and crackling noises and at the same time, the video will stutter.  This just started happening around 2 weeks ago.  Today, when I tried to play a Hidden Object game, it was doing the same thing.  I have tried updating the drivers for audio, DirX and RealTek.  I have removed and reinstalled both Realtek HD Audio Manager and VLC.  I've also tried adjusting the settings on both the WMP and VLC.  Today I ended up doing a System Restore because I feared that maybe I had changed something I shouldn't have and whatever I was doing seemed to make my problem worse.
 
I'm at my wits end and extremely frustrated.  I'm hoping someone here in Bleeping Computer Land can help me with this.  
 
Thank you.

Appears to be a "memory corruption" problem. This could be a memory module fault, wrong drivers loaded, corrupt system store or a virus. (or a combination) I would start by running spf scannow followed by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (free version) in safe mode. If neither will run, run a memory test. Some corrupt system store errors showed up so you may end up having to do a Repair install of Windows.

Hi,

I would suggest you to check the performance in “Safe mode with networking”.

Run the Windows Audio Playback Diagnose and Repair from the below MS FIX-IT: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/AudioPlayback/

You can even try running Microsoft Fix IT’s from the URL mentioned below according to the issue:

If this issue started occurring after doing some recent software changes on your computer, then I would suggest you to restore your system back to a date when it was working fine. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only.

Hope this helps.

Hi all,
Been having a few computer troubles, last couple of days. Up until now, I have never had a computer crash since building my machine. Occasionally I've had to force-quit a program, but never random crashes.

I've had 6 in the last day or so, though. And none of them have happened with a BSoD. The last one to happen was while watching a movie. I Ctrl+Alt+Del'd and it got stuck showing a message "preparing security options..." with the time-circle(?), but never progressed past that point.

They all seem to happen at random, regardless of what I do. When playing full-screen games, watching full-screen movies, or even just sitting idling. I've tried updating my MOBO BiOS, my gfx driver, tried taking out and setting the RAM again, and even ran a full-system scan with both anti-virus and with CCleaner.

I'm afraid I'm not sure what I should do.

I tried to upload the files from the SF_Diagnostic_Tool, but got a message saying I didn't have the correct Security Token?

If there's any other information that you require of me, please don't hesitate to ask.

Why does my computer freeze up and unfreeze in a cycle when I am watching something in full screen, lets say you tube, veoh or just watching window media player full screen.

The computer will freeze to the point that I can't move until I carefully move my mouse to get to desktop again, this is where it stops freezing completely,
The freezing does not go away immediately, it freezes for about couple more second after returning to desktop then it goes away.

This does not happen immediately though, it takes about 1 min to 10 min for the freezing to begin.

Hello everyone,

I hope I can find some help here with these crashes I have since several months now.

While playing games like CS:GO or H1Z1, I have a lot of crashes to desktop and sometimes BSOD. The BSOD can happen also while watching streams & listening to music. So far, I had these ones : 0x1000007E / dxgmms1.sys+1DFA5 / 0x0000003B / atikmdag.sys+C4DE0.


I think I tried everything in my knowledge to solve the problem but it still didn't resolve the problems. On the hardware side :
- Switched the memory sticks ;
- Switched the graphic card (my brother has the same one as me and it never failed him. Still it didn't resolve the problems on my computer) ;
- Switched to Marvell SATA controllers then to the 3Gb Intel controllers ;
- Used a USB sound card thinking that it may have something to do with the audio on the motherboard;
- Changed the graphic card slot to the PCI 8X.

When I connect the computer to my Samsung LED TV (UN40B7000WFXZA LED) with an HDMI cable , everything works great until I play a video in full screen. As soon as I do, the computer crashes and I get a gray static looking screen and have to restart my computer. This only happens when the computer is hooked up to the tv and I'm not sure how to fix it.

Does anyone know what could be causing this problem?

Any help would be appreciated!!!

Has it ever worked? If so chances are its the video driver. Un-install the current one and re-install a fresh copy

I'm not sure if I need a memory upgrade, video card upgrade or what. Ive done a little research on my problem, which I have described below, and there have been numerous suggestions: memory upgrade, new video/graphics card, upgrade drivers, need dusting w/compressed air, overheating, cpu fan, overclocking, power supply, etc. Please help. I miss watching videos online and my son misses his PBSKids games!

My 3 year old plays very basic games online and I watch youtube videos. When my computer is first turned on, it will allow me to watch videos for about 10-15 minutes, then the screen turns black. I can still hear the video, but the screen remains black. If I turn the monitor screen off, then back on, the video comes back for about 2-3 seconds, then the monitor turns black again. My screen only turns black when watching videos or playing games. I am able to do all other things on my computer without any problems.

Based on my specs and temps/voltages below, what do you recommend I do?

Have you tried:

Hi,

My previous operating system (Vista Home Premium) crashed and I lost everything. I also misplaced the installation disc so I just decided to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate. Everything works fine aside from the games don't accommodate the full desktop screen even though it is already set to full mode. I can see black screen on both left and right sides of the screen.

I already searched this forum for the solutions but still no luck. My laptop is Dell Inspiron 125 and my processor is Intel Core 2 Duo. I don't know if that helps...

Additional information: I boot into safe mode and all the games display fine.

I first got SC2 at release and had issues with the game crashing. I followed some forum threads and managed to get it fixed (can't remember how). Recently I got the Walking Dead game, which crashed my computer just a few minutes into the game. After a few attempts I turned down the graphics and was able to play the game. Since then every time I've tried to play SC2 it has crashed. The screen locks up, changes to some funky colors and goes to a black screen. Have to force shut down and boot it back up. Since then I have updated drivers, disassembled my PC and cleaned everything out with compressed air, changed power supplies (both Antec 750Ws), added a 2nd hard drive from an older computer, formatted everything, reinstalled everything, updated all drivers again, downloaded Live Update 5 (from MSI website to update bios...had some terrible issues with that which I won't go into for now, but according to the updater the BIOS is up to date now). I use SlimDrivers to update all my drivers.

A:GAMES freeze/crash PC to Black Screen

I would suggest some hardware checks.


   Warning
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Monitor temperatures during the following tests. Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures. Real Temp is a good CPU temperature monitor.
Speccy - System Information - Free Download will monitor all hardware temperatures.
HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools can be inaccurate for CPU temperatures, but is a good program for GPU temperature monitoring.
Use FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net to test the graphics card GPU. Let it run until the GPU temperatures even out or until the GPU temperatures reach a dangerous level (you can find the max temperature for your card on either the nVidia or AMD sites; if you are not sure, ask us). The goal is to get a steady temperature, find out if the GPU is overheating, or to see if there are any artifacts present in the test itself: look for strange pixelated patterns on the screen or colors that do not look like they belong. Then use the |MG| Video Memory Stress Test 1.7... Read more

I've never re-installed the OS and it came pre-installed in the laptop.

Thanks for your help.

A:BSOD mostly while playing full screen games

Hi,

Multiple different errors and bugchecks, software related errors but there's also a mention of memory corruption in there, so I'll want you to run a Memtest just to be sure. Since you mentioned you're BSOD'ing in Full Screen games, I'd recommend uninstalling and reinstalling your graphics card drivers to ensure this is not software related as far as graphics drivers go.

Few drivers mentioned as faults:

Netw564.sys was mentioned in a dump as a cause (Intel Wireless WiFi Link Driver). Update here to be sure.

usbvideo.sys was also mentioned, but I believe something is driving that to fault.

Is there any way to play a full-screen game (like Sim City) in a window instead of in its default full-screen setting? I want to be able to play the game and have access to my computer desktop as well, so that I can use AIM, browse the web, check e-mail, etc. I remember being able to do this on an older system by installing a utility, but I forgot what it was called and don't even know if it would work with XP.

My video card then resets itself (changes resolution, refresh rate, or colour quality). GPU temp is 78C, card is a Radeon 9800XT.

Hello

I have started playing Guild Wars 2, after the first couple of days my game started to freezing and black screen to desktop before going back into game to only black screen again. At times my monitor would say no signal. The problem disappeared for close to 5 days and came back up again. I've tried playing other games and the problem is similar, freezing to desktop, black screen and crashing to desktop.

During the black screen to desktop I would get 'Display driver stopped responding and has recovered'. I have updated to a few different drivers including the latest stable driver from Nvidia but the problem still exists.

I have ran VMT for 10 passes with no errors.

Prime95 Small FFTs for over 2hours with no errors.

Running FurMark the test does complete when I run BenchMark(user's setting) when I do the Burn In-Test everything looks okay until my GPU hits 80c. The computer would shut off then. Though when I play games my gpu varies between 50 to 62c.

Hello,

So I began having issues with my PC freezing up or giving me the BSOD while playing games. Half of the time my picture will distort and freeze. When this happens the whole computer is unresponsive then ends up requiring a reset. The other half I will receive the BSOD.

When this began I used HWMonitor to try and narrow down the issue and notice my CPU temp would spike up to 90c during heavy load. So I cleaned my case out, put new thermal paste on and brought a new heatsink. This got my temp down a lot to about 65c during gaming and 40c while idle. Although I made this change I still had random freezes and BSOD.

I also ran Memtest86 to make sure my memory was ok and everything came back clear. Last but not least I upgraded the firmware on my SSD.

Unfortunately I'm still not having any luck. I don't have an extra GPU or PSU to narrow it down anymore but would hoping maybe you guys might see something that could be at fault before I buy any replacement parts.

So far that where I'm currently at.

Thanks guys.

A friend referred me to post my SF Diagnostic Tool results in the forum here.

I'm not sure what other pertinent information is necessary to include other than the zip file that is attached. Please let me know if there is anything else to include.

I appreciate any/all the help that will come.

You have several different causes for the crashes:

SteelSeries Bus Enumerator

This is the latest driver so either roll back to a older version or wait for a new driver to be released.

I have developed a problem some time overnight with playing games. About 10m into playing, I get BSOD.
I briefly checked over my drivers and have not found any problems.
I appreciate any help.

Welcome to 7F. All of your dumps are blaming your nVidia Graphics filter driver.

It looks like it could do with updating. Either check nVidia or your machine vendor's website for an updated version.

Hi I recently put together a new computer and i have been getting blue screens with the following STOP Code:

0x000000F4 (0x000000000000003 fffffa80`06e12b30 fffffa80`06e12e10 fffff800`02fda510)

This has happened mostly when playing Diablo 3 in full screen. I have also had it happen while playing starcraft 2. I haven't tried any other games yet. I have been able to play the games for longer periods of time when playing in windowed mode but i have had it blue screen still when windowed. It has also given BSOD once when just trying to open the game after a previous crash.

I have read about this hardware issue on this board and people were hinting at it being the ram and or the SSD firmware.
I have checked the SSd firmware and it is up to date. I have also updated the BIOS

The board seems to have an issue when i have ram in the four blue slots. it used to give me a b7 error code on the display on the board and get stuck in POST. This is a common problem with this board but i don't know if its causing the BSOD. to fix this i took the stick out of the A0 Slot. This still leaves 6GB of ram and i've never seen the computer use more then 2.5GB while i was gaming.

I have also been checking the CPU and GPU temperatures via win 7 gadgets and they haven't been about 47degrees C while gaming. There has been no spikes in any of the CPU's before the crash either.

I have attached the .dmp files and the performance monitor results. Can anybody help me.

My specs are: ... Read more

Analysis:Your crashes primarily indicate hard disk problems. This could mean hard disk corruption, bad sectors, a failing hard disk, Windows files or registry corruption, viruses, or memory problems.If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Run Disk Check with both boxes checked for all HDDs and with Automatically fix file system errors checked for all SSDs. Post back your logs for the checks after finding them using Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log (you may need to search for wininit instead of chkdsk).
For any drives that do not give the message:
Windows has checked the file system and found no problems
run disk check again as above. In other words, if it says:
Windows has made corrections to the file system
after running the disk check, run the disk check again.

Run all Basic tests with SeaTools: S.M.A.R.T. Check, Short Drive Self Test, Drive Information, Short Generic, and Long Generic. Run the tests for all HDDs.SeaTools for Windows

SeaTools for DOS
If you have an SSD, make sure the following are up to date:SSD firmware
BIOS Version
Chipset Drivers
Hard disk controller drivers/SATA drivers
If you have a Marvell IDE ATA/ATAPI device, make sure the drivers are up to date from the Intel site or Marvell site and not from your motherboard/vendor support site.

Check Windows for corruption. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show error... Read more

Hello,


Code:
OS Version: 6.1.7600 N/A Build 7600
You're missing Service Pack 1, highly suggested that you install this as it secures the PC and fixes a whole lot of problems.
You can download through either Windows Update, or download from here Download Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932) from Official Microsoft Download Center

This could be the main cause of the BSOD, but here's some suggestions:

Code:
dtsoftbus01.sys Fri Feb 21 03:49:36 2014 (53072130)
This driver belongs to Daemon Tools, known problem with Windows. Please uninstall.
On a side note:

Having a cracked version of Windows can also cause some errors. I highly suggest you purchase a legit version, and work from there also.


Code:
Win 7,Ultimate,Lenovo 2,XXXXX-OEM-8992662-00497

Code:
Product ID: 00426-OEM-8992662-00497
