Random BSODs caused by ntoskrnl.exe

Q: Random BSODs caused by ntoskrnl.exe

Hey guys, I've been getting BSODs that are apparently being caused by ntoskrnl.exe. Sometimes happen within minutes of turning on the computer, sometimes not at all. I've read it may be caused by a graphics card driver, but the driver is already on its latest version. Currently running Seatools on my HD to see if that comes up with anything...

Dump files attached.

Thanks in advance!

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 have been receiving random BSODs for a while now. WhoCrashed has given multiple causes including possibly my audio card driver. However i have tried changing this many time to different versions to no avail. I have 4 BSOD logs from recently and i was wondering if you could look at them and suggest what you think it may be. Im running 64bit windows 7.

Hi all,

3 weeks ago I did a fresh install of Windows 10 and since then I'm getting BSODs at least once every 1-2 hours. These BSODs vary from SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED to KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. Also these BSODs happen at random moment: when the computer is iddling, when I'm downloading, when I'm listening to music, when I'm playing Battlefield 4.

I've already updated all drivers, but now I'm at a point that I don't know anymore what could be causing these BSODs. So I hope you guys could help me find out what the problem is and how to resolve it.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
Jens

I got a new laptop (ASUS N56VB) which I formatted and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 on. I installed the drivers and OS updates and started experiencing these BSODs caused by ntoskrnl.exe.

So I thought something was wrong with my install, and reformatted and did it all again. It didn't help. I experienced the first BSOD again with the same message.

This problem has been happening since I built this computer 6 months ago.

I've tried changing the motherboard, the memory, and the power supply, and have reinstalled windows many times. I suspect I'll have enough parts for a second computer by the time I figure this out. Logs are attached. Thank you!

It's been a little over a year since I built a custom computer, and for some odd reason it gets around four BSODs a month. I'll either get one while surfing the web, playing a game, or doing anything really. I've analyzed the dump files with WhoCrashed and it shows that ntoskrnl.exe is "probably" the cause of most the crashes. I don't know if that's really the case, but If I could get some help on this issue, I would really appreciate it.

I've included the SF Diagnostic Tool's gathered files in a zip.

A:Rare But Persistent BSODs. Most Shown to be Caused by ntoskrnl.exe?

That issue is not very rare, but rather frequent. Some malfunction in the storage subsystem. Most possibly a loose connection or a disc corruption.

Reseat the sata and power.

Also, if possible, change the SATA cable. Apply the SATA cable to another unused port on the motherboard. Make it sure that there is no loose connectio in the SATA connecting. Check all the screws holding the HDD with the stand. Make it sure all those are properly screwed.

Test your HDD using Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for Windows. Also let us see a screenshot of your hdd using CrystalDiskInfo - Software - Crystal Dew World .

Will decide the further steps seeing the results.

I'm working on my parents computer and they are randomly receiving BSODs. They tell me they usually receive them when browsing the internet and running several other programs at once. They are using a Dell Studio XPS 7100 running Windows Home Premium.

My guess is that the issue is driver related. The reason I think this is because I ran the driver verifier and it created a BSOD (this also created the last mini dump file in the attached files). The BSOD message said "A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught. The faulty driver currently on the kernel stack must be replaced with a working version."

Would someone mind looking through the attached documents and letting me know if you see any problems?

Since about mid January now whenever I play games like osu!, WoW, RO2, or PSO2 my laptop will cause a blue screen at a pretty much random time. It can work for hours, or it can BSOD within moments of opening a game. Making it annoying to recreate. I tried almost everything the internet suggested before finally deciding to do a factory reset, which to my dismay still did not solve the problem. It has even had the BSOD during Firefox sessions before, where not a lot was happening. Although that was before the reset and hasn't happened since. So my final hope is asking here, it seems. I will try everything that is suggested, even if I already have tried it previously.

The info made with that program zipped with my username:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6l...it?usp=sharing
(I got 2 BSODs since, but the most recent one was caused by HTTP.sys, which I've never seen before).

Thanks for any help in advance.

Since 16 Feb 2013 to today 22 Feb 2013 I've been getting Blue Screens; these appear to be completely random each time with different stop codes and (according to Blue Screen Veiw) are caused by different files. For example;

Caused by ntkrnlpa.exe or atikmdag.exe, or ks,sys, or USBPORT.SYS, or dxgkrnl.sys, or dxgmms1.sys.
At times I'm unable to do anything on the my PC as these are known to happen before Windows logs me in.
Attached the Blue Screen View records of the BSODs (trying to figure out how to open .dmp) up to 21 Feb 2013. Most recently it was the ks.sys that caused the BSOD but no file was created nor does it appear in Blue Screen View. I know what these files are rooted to but neither Windows Update nor any driver update has solved the issue hence my post here.

Activity on the PC doesn't seem to be a factor as the BSODs have occurred while I've been playing games, watching DVDs, listening to MP3s, browsing the web, editing pictures on the PC... I can do anything and at some point a BSOD is guaranteed to happen. They also occur randomly, as yesterday (21 Feb 2013) I was able to play games until 23:00 and then I was unable to log back into Windows because of back to back BSODs while the day before I was unable to do much because of the frequency of the BSODs.

I've installed and re-installed a dozen times over and run the updates and done disk scans and defrags and virus scans and run Windows System Repair and nothing has helped. I'm at my wits end here and... Read more

Hi,

I built a new computer a few months ago and I have recently been getting random hangs/freezes on my computer where nothing responds and I have to turn power off/on again. I did a fresh install of windows to try and sort things out but now i've been getting random BSOD instead. There's no pattern to them and they could happen at any point.

BlueScreenView says from the dmp's that the driver causing it is ntoskrnl.exe which seems to have many possible hardware/driver causes.

I ran memtest for 13 hours and that came back with 0 errors so I don't think its my RAM.

If anyone could look at my dmps to try and give me more of a clue of whats causing this problem I would be very grateful

Hi,

Last year I bought a new computer (desktop pc which I build myself) and ever since then I have had random occurrences of BSOD. Sometimes it take 4-6 weeks before it happens and some times it can occur several times in one week. I have done some memory, graphics and cpu tests without succeeding to reproduce BSOD myself.

I have also used Windows verifier to check the drivers and they do produce BSOD but these differs from the regular ones that occurs randomly, this I have noticed with the Windows program WhoCrashed. According to WhoCrashed those random BSOD has something to do with ntoskrnl.exe. Here is the output from an analyse from Whocrashed of one of my dumpfiles:

Hello all,
I have been getting BSODs recently that have really benn pissing me off. The first one I got was while running a game (007: Quantum of Solace) - BlueScreen, lower counter or something and happened way too fast for me to see. Second time was when working with some heavy 3D objects in Photoshop CS5, this time I got really angry, but thank god my project had been saved. Last time was just while browsing the internet - yes, nothing more - I was using Opera, had only 1 page open, plain text, no flash or HTML5, few background apps, all of a sudden - third BSOD. And that's when I got REALLY angry. Really? A crash from surfing the f***ing web?!?!? Wow.
Well OK, that's my frustration in short, all files are attached below, hope you can help me because I'm probably gonna freak out the next time this thing gets in the way...

Edit: I'm also gonna run myself a memtest, but that will happen AFTER I finish studying for my 2 upcoming exams...

Hello SevenForums.

I've been experiencing repeated, but random, BSODs lately. Sometimes while gaming, sometimes while browsing. They started out a few months ago and I haven't been changing any hardware.
Some drivers have been updated, but nothing out of the ordinary that I can think of.

Attached to this post is my SF Diagonostics Minidump-file (bjornljs.zip).

Theory: I figure it's a hardware issue and it seems to be caused by hal.dll. Other than that, I'm clueless.

Edit: I'm editing some information into this post from later posts. More info in later posts (see below)

Tests:
I ran a Prime95 CPU stress-test overnight (about 8h) and it came out just fine. 0 errors, 0 alerts.
I ran a quick memtest86+ as well (2 hours) and it didn't show any errors. I'll run a proper (7+ hours) as soon as possible.

PSU
My current PSU is a Corsair 620 HX Modular Power Supply. I think it's about 3-4 years old.
I have an older PSU at ~500W in a storage room, can dig it up if required.
(Power Supply Calculator) recommends at least 464W.

I've also had a look at all the cables and capacitors. Overall they seem fine.

Tried to look at the dumps but I could not determine a cause. Any assistance would be great. The 2 latest BSOD's in the file are real. The ones prior to that not sure about validity since the laptop had virus & rootkit. Cleaned those.

Thank you very much for your time.

A:Random BSODs caused by USB I think.

Can you describe the situation further? Is there a pattern you can deduce from this besides it being USB-related? When does it occur? Can you induce it?

These minidumps can't be used to evaluate cause because they require private symbols accessible only to those with MSDN access. However, Driver Verifier may be able to help us in this endeavor. Let it crash the system a few times then send us the crashdumps.

Also, do a BIOS and chipset driver updates, as well as USB driver updates as well if those also exist. If you use any USB hubs that may be a cause of these, so try and see if the system stabilizes without using any. Check your USB devices and see if there are driver/firmware updates for any of them.

If all else fails, this may be conducive of motherboard failure, which USB ports are typically the first to go. This is not uncommon on OEM laptops, especially Sony VAIOs.

Hello,

This is my 1st time installing Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit on my new rig. While i was using my pc normally, not gaming, it just crashed and went into blue screen. Twice.

And so, i tried using BlueScreenView to open the .dmp files and both of the .dmp files are caused by ntoskrnl.exe.

A:Laptop random BSOD Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe

Out of the 3 crashdumps you provided, 2 show crashes that look like his video card drivers were involved. The drivers do look fairly old (August 24 2011) so make sure that he keeps em up to date. Other than that, I can say the crashdumps aren't sufficient enough to find exact cause right now.

Before I continue, I want to add that it's probably ill-advisable for him to seek assistance fixing a company laptop by a 'friend', and moreso when that friend is posting details of it to a public forum. Granted, there isn't anything entirely compromising of security from the JCGriff Report, but it doesn't matter. If it's company property, it should be best left to the company's IT department to resolve the issue.

Hello everybody, my name is Patricio, and I have been experimenting some random BSOD with error 0x0000000a caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe. I have tried to pinpoint the driver by myself but i failed to see which one is causing this. I have reinstalled all motherboard drivers (AMD Southbridge + Video Card Drivers), I've run this OS for around 200 days and only once every 6 months I got one of this BSOD, but now, this week, it started to do it quite often and randomly. To give you an example, I can let my computer on for hours, just letting it downloading something and it will be just fine, then use it, watch videos, surf the internet and nothing. Windows only managed to catch one Dump, as the screen stays at the 0% while the BSOD and even after letting it for half an hour, it won?t finish. I have also run a Memtest for 10 Hours, it managed to run 3 passes, but I had 0 errors. That is why I believe it is probably something related to a driver, not a system driver but a 3rd party driver, like antivirus or so. I have read the guide in sevenforums of how to run the Verifier, create a custom run, and I will let it now reboot, Hoping it can log something.

The Speccy is showing the 12V rail to be 8.064V.  I suspect this isn't accurate, but it would be worth putting a meter on it to be sure.  If it is accurate, then your PSU has a problem.

8 different causes most pointing to hardware. If you are overclocking stop.

Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.
1-Memtest.

*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 or 6 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.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

2-Driver verifier

Hello,

my laptop is a HP dv7 1080 originally with vista x64 OEM upgraded to seven pro x64 RETAIL with accademy program. Upgrade done a year ago NEVER a problem, never a BSOD. Basically never problem with my laptot. My hardware is 2008 old but i never have problems with it. I replaced only power charger and battery.

I'm unable to run System Health Report with perfmon /report because i receive a timeout error doing it but i see that on C:\PerfLogs\System\Diagnostics i've all reports that i tried to do. I'll attach it and also minidump folder.

Using Blue screen view i saw that BSOD SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION are always caused by ntoskrnl.exe

Thanks for reading and trying to help me solve this issue!

I've had this problem since I first built this machine about 2 years ago, been getting random BSODs as the title suggests. Sometimes I can go a week without any errors, then I'll get one each day for 3 days in a row. About 2 months ago (after countless google searches for a solution) I decided to just reformat my hard drive. Alas, this was no help.

As to the symptoms, I USUALLY get one of these BSODs when gaming. It has happened during all the games I play so I can't nail down only one as the culprit. I play WoW, battlefield 3, apb: reloaded, and league of legends. The crash address for every BSOD thus far is ntoskrnl.exe+7cc40.

I'm running Windows Home Premium 64bit OEM (reinstalled). Age of hardware is slightly over 2 years, age of OS install slightly over 2 months.

I believe I've followed the BSOD posting instructions pretty well, if you need any more info I'd be happy to provide it

Thanks in advance!

A:Random BSODs ntoskrnl.exe

All of these seem to be crashes of the directx subsystem or wake event failures from win32k.sys (timeout or synchronization object failures), all of which would indicate likely video card or driver trouble. Assuming you've tried multiple ATI driver versions with no success, have you considered this potentially a hardware fault (faulty video card) or a low power scenario (underpowered or failing PSU)?

Hi

Through out the day I have received a few BSOD Stop errors as follows

Firstly I received a BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER (fe) error, indicating usbhub.sys being the culprit
(this isn't the first time I received this particular error). Only thing using the usb port at that time was my wireless microsoft mouse.


Code:

Shutting down later that day, I received a DRIVER_POWER_STATE (9f) error, which blamed ntoskrnl.exe as the culprit.


Code:

Hi!

For some time now I had this problem where PC bsods in random times, doing something or being idle..
Error codes are:
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
PFN_LIST_CORRUPT
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

When looking with Nirsofts Bluescreenviewer they are all coming from ntoskrnl.exe

I did two passes with memtest86+ and no errors was found.
I had some problems with my secondary HDD having some bad sectors, but I fixed those (I think) when I was clean installing new system few months ago. Could HDD be causing this problem? Widows and more important programs are installed on a new SSD, HDD used almost only for storage, games and stuff not used all the time..

Please help me solve this problem!

Thanks!

My friend has a Desktop PC that has some random BSODs and I decide to help him.
Started on January and getting worse last month.
After the forth BSOD I tried to find out the problem but it seems the problem not really exact. (Run WinDbg, got different results)
Then I reinstalled motherboard, video card, wlan and the lan drivers. Run chkdsk and system file checker (src /scannow), found nothing. Checked the SSD firmware, up to date.
Run stress test on the CPU and the GPU, there weren't overheating (at that time).
Tested the RAMs using memtest86+ overnight, passed 5 times, no errors.
Run Driver Verifier for 17 hours, no BSOD. After deleted the existing settings, restarting the windows caused BSOD (5th).
Uninstalled Gigabyte Dynamic Energy Saver and manually disabled the gdrv.sys using Autoruns. But this seems only the last BSOD (or not).

I was wondering if somebody could help.
Thank you in advance.

Hey there, this my first time here. And sorry if BSOD of this type already have already been fixed.
These bsods started appearing out of nowhere. I have no idea what is the cause. They usually appear when I am playing games or watching youtube videos. But they appear when the PC is idle too.
I have attached the dm log collector files. I hope you will help me fix this problem.
Thanks.

Hello, for the past month I have been receiving BSOD's mostly while gaming, but sometimes they will occur during simple internet browsing. I have troubleshooted and gone through every scenario I could think of:

-Memtest86+ passed after 8 hours
-Swapped ram positions; no effect
-HDD test; passed
-Fresh Windows 7 x84 install on new HDD; no effect.
-Latest drivers for graphics card and motherboard; no effect.
-Flashed motherboard to the latest version; no effect

I am in desperate need of your help, the blue screens are happening more and more frequently (at least 3x per day). I saw someone post a similar thread and the problem was thought to be USB related. Bluescreen viewer indicates that the majority of the bluescreens are resultant of USBPORT.sys and/or ntoskrnl.exe (nvidia driver) failing. Deciphering the minidumps goes beyond my level of knowledge (I have attached the dumps to this post as well as a screenshot from bluescreen view) and I pray that someone here will be able to help me figure out the cause of my BSOD's. I will check this thread frequently; if there is any additional info needed I will post back ASAP. Thanks in advance for the help!
