Q: Just got blue screened and "system has recovered from serious error"

Does anyone know if there is a log so I can copy and paste it here? It's happened a few times since I started connecting to the internet.

Preferred Solution: Just got blue screened and "system has recovered from serious error"

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.)

My system has intermittently, but repeatedly, given me the "System has recovered from a serious error" screen upon boot, and created minidump files. The system continues to boot and run XP without crashes, errors or significant problems beyond sometimes sluggish response. I have used Windbg to see that ntoskrnl.exe is probably the problem and the "!analyze -v" includes reference to "PROCESS_NAME: avgcsrvx.exe" but I don't know what needs to be fixed. Two minidump files are attached as well as the text from windbg. Any insight or help would be appreciated.
Thank you
 

A:Repeated "System has recovered from a serious error" - minidump attached

I have compared your debug txt to my own with no discrepancies
So you are set up properly to read your dmps.

The driver that has caused the fault is avgcsrvx.exe
This is part of your AVG antivirus software.

A couple of questions:
Do you have more than one av installed?
(note: Having more than one installed will cause conflicts, instability and insecurity.)

How long have you had avg installed and when was your last update?
They may have an update that fixes the problem, or your most recent update may be the cause of the problem.
You might try rolling back to a previous version, or updating (if available).

Otherwise, since avg does sometimes cause problems for some systems,
you could try another av product.
My preference is for Avira. Top marks in effectiveness, extremely rarely is there a conflict issue (for me), and very frequent updates, (usually two a day).
I highly recommend it, if you are interested in an alternative.

Hello - thanks for taking the time to hopefully help me. :-)

I don't believe this is a virus/malware problem, but it started shortly after I got a windows message saying that Norton 360 was "processing threats"...I was (ashamedly on Fail.org), but not downloading anything. Here's a quick history:

My task manager was diabled, my desktop background was blank (greyed out), and regedit was not available. I also noticed that if I went in to change my desktop background, I didn't have the option of changing my background, or browing for one. And I was periodically getting a "windows" message (that was clearly fake) saying: "you system" is infected and to hit "ok" to download antivirus software...which of course I didn't.

When I performed a virus scan, there was no virus detected.

I then ran Ad-Aware and Spybot just in case. Ad-Aware found a few tracking cookies, and Spybot found 1 item (but for the life of me I can't remember what it was).

So, 1 day ago, I was able to reset the value in regedit to allow task manager and backgrounds...and all seemed fine.

But today, my system keeps crashing randomly and giving me the Blue Screen of Death. When I restart, I get a message saying that "The system has recovered from a serious error"

Similarly, my Outlook will freeze once opened...go through about 2 minutes of "Not Responding" and then work fine.

I also cannot connect to my network drives (G, F).... Read more

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.

Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

If you are overclocking STOP

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:

This has happened to me about 5 times in the last 3 months. Last week my cpu crashed and I had to reformat my hard drive to get it working again. (Thanks to the help of this forum.) Now I'm getting everything back to normal and I get home today and it has recovered from a serious error, again.

System recovers from serious error and when I send error report this is what it tells me :

Consider BIOS upgrade

Microsoft is unable to determine the exact cause of this error. However, this problem was most likely caused by an error in your computer?s random access memory (RAM). RAM is the main internal storage area the computer uses to run programs and store data.

During the crash analysis, we noticed the basic input/output (BIOS) system version on this computer does not match the specifications for the central processing unit (CPU), also known as a processor, that is installed on your computer. This can occur when a newer processor is installed on an older system board or older BIOS. Using a BIOS that does not support the installed processor can result in Windows system crashes. Contact your computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer for an updated version of BIOS for your computer's processor.

Additional information

Important: Upgrading the BIOS version may require moderate to advanced troubleshooting skills. If you are uncomfortable with performing these steps, you might want to consider consulting with paid technical support.

A:"system recovered from serious error" consider bios upgrade?

By updating the BIOS they mean updating the BIOS version. This can be done by visiting the computer or motherboard manufacturer's website and downloading a newer BIOS version along with flash utility.

Earlier this evening my brother wanted to transfer a song to his MP3 player, so I got it all setup for him and ran off for a minute. When I came back, he said the computer had just restarted itself while he was trying to transfer the song. I came back to see the computer had just finished running through the Scandisk/ErrorCheck and was starting up again. When I signed back into my desktop, I recieved a message stating the computer had recovered from a serious error. I clicked for more details and spread the windows out so I was able to take a screenshot of all 3 messages about the error. I attached the picture to this post.

We went ahead and got the song transfered just fine afterwards, but when I went to connect to the internet, it wouldn't dial up and said the modem was not there. I went into the Modem settings and it said the "Lucent Win Modem" was not there. This is the one that was setup by default with Windows XP. My Zoom modem will not work for some reason (which is what is currently installed right now). I did manage to fix the problem by shutting things down, removing the modem, putting it back into the PCI slot and starting things up again.

It's happened a few times before. It's a reasonably new computer running Windows XP Professional. I'm normally installing something or updating something when it happens, I've looked at the Microsoft Support pages that are about this error and I've done all it says but I don't think it will fix it. These support pages can be found here:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/317277
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316424

I think if anything, I've suffered with the first error rather than the second. My computer actually shuts down and reboots, with an appeared error message reading "The system has recovered from a serious error". When I go onto details it says the error file is corrupt.

It normally happens when I'm running a long update or installation or something similar. This time around I was running Windows Update to install Office SP3.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I will provide specs or any other information upon request, thankyou in advance.

A:"The system has recovered from a serious error"

Specs would help of course, but one thing to check first is that all your basic hardware drivers are upto date and compatibile with Windows XP


Quote:




You may receive this error message when Windows attempts to use device drivers that are incompatible with Windows XP.




Check manufacturers websites for the latest drivers for you devices, if your not sure of which these are, do the following:

1, Download everest

2, open the program up, Click Computer -- Summary -- double click on Display

3, At the top, click on Report - the button with the writing pad next to it

4, Next , Custom Selection, Deselect all but display, then Next, Plain Text, click Finish

5, Save to file

6, Save it to the desktop or somewhere obvious!

Broadcom PXE implies it's been trying to boot from a network so you need to go into BIOS to change the boot order to CD drive before you can get your reinstallation going. However, if it got all the way to trying the network boot option, chances are nothing else worked along the way. Restart and tap Delete or Function 2 for BIOS.

I rebooted about 4 times getting the same error, but on the 5th time it logged on as normal. I was then able to use the computer for about an hour I then turned it off. After rebooting it a few minutes ago the same error has appeared again and have rebooting about 10 times it doesnt seem to be going this time.

On occasions I get a different error which is:

Hi BUTTERNUTS,
What is the exact system model? When did the issue start? Was the issue seen when the system was on Win 8 or only after you upgraded to Win 10?
If the system was working fine earlier while on Win 10, then perform a system restore to restore the system to a point where it was working fine - http://bit.ly/1JEw2ov
For XPS 9530:
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1Qpam2M and reinstall the Intel video driver from the same site. If the issue persists, then uninstall the existing video driver and install the driver from Intel site - http://intel.ly/1h4oaGT
For XPS 9550:
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1XOjEeg and reinstall the Intel video driver from the same site. If the issue persists, then uninstall the existing video driver and install the driver from Intel site - http://intel.ly/1qEcrCW
If the issue is not resolved, then create a new local admin account and check - http://bit.ly/1JoFhcw
If the issue is seen only on Win 10 and was working fine on Win 8.1, then downgrade to Win8.1 and check - http://bit.ly/1RMaCdK
You could later perform a clean install of Win10 and check - http://bit.ly/1VxGDgb

Hi there,

I am new here and I am not computer guru. So I ran the test earlier today , and everything was fine. Max temperature after 11 minutes running the test was as far as I can remember not more than 85 it stayed stable with only 1 degree difference from time to time till I stopped the test. I am with Palit Gtx570 Sonic Platinium video card. So I didn't take a screen because I thought everything was fine. Seven hours later I ran the test again and then suddenly here is what happened :




Actually I bought my computer recently. I am using Win7 64bit. I had that problem and here is what I have done:

1.Reinstalling drivers from different sources - Palit, Nvidia and disc drivers. Tried older versions.
2. Reinstalling Windows - putting first the drivers of the video and then the drivers of other devices with the purpose to try to detect if there is a driver conflict.

First off heres a screen of the exact message I get: http://www.itwriting.com/blog/?p=110. While playing some games, every 1-3 minutes, my screen goes black. To fix this I have to alt tab out and tab back into the game. The message i get appears on my taskbar: " "Display driver igfx stoppe responding and has successfully recovered". It is a very annoying message, and I'm using a new computer with windows vista on it. If you dont think it is a big deal then think of this : its 1v1 and your playing counter strike source. All of the sudden your screen goes black and you hear shots followed by a "HEADSHOT" "COUNTER-TERRORISTS WIN." This bug is really annoying and I need someone to give me a step by step guide to fix it.

Lately, for no explain-able reason, whenever I play a movie every 5-15 minutes I get a glitch with the picture getting stuck, audio replaying itself for a few seconds, screen turns black and everything goes back to normal, with a pop-up appearing informing me that my graphic kernel was shut down and has been restored.
I have attempted updating graphics driver (using the 310.64 nvidia beta one, after the latest didn't solve it), updated windows to latest version, and followed advices given on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2665946 with no effect.
Any suggestions on how to fix this? It has occured to me while playing movies in SMPlayer, as well as in streaming online media.

A:"Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" error while playing movies

Typically the cause of a video driver glitch which can resolved by upgrading or downgrading the video drivers. I've also seen it caused by a specific app. In which case, updating the app or using a different app resolves the problem.

My Windows XP computer keeps getting a "System has recovered from a serious error" message on every restart. At first, nothing else seemed wrong so I just ignored the problem, but when I turned it on today, it kept restarting and restarting over and over again, and would also randomly start rebooting while in use. I opened the case, and replaced the RAM cards, dusted the case thoroughly (dust had been a big problem once), and plugged it back in, but the problem is still there.

(When I send the error report to microsoft, it says that the data in the error report is corrupted, so that's no help.)

Could someone please have a look at my minidump files and tell me whats wrong? I'm completely lost, and don't know where to begin to start identifying the problem. HELP!
 

A:"recovered from a serious error", computer rebooting randomly.. HELP!!

3 of your minidumps are corrupt, and unreadable.

2 minidumps crash at atapi.sys. This is your Windows IDE/Atapi port driver. Both minidumps have a bugcheck of D1.

0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

It could be that this driver has become corrupt, or it may be a sign of a failing hard drive.

Go HERE and follow the instructions for testing your ram, and running the hard drive diagnostics.

Also. If you scroll down the page. You will see instructions for creating a new page file. See reply #11.

If that doesn`t help. Maybe doing a Windows repair as per this thread HERE might help.

I have dual operating System, although primary being Win7. I had a crashed windows, once,which I recovered with the OEM Dvd, but that was long time ago. The label of having recovered is still showing, and this really irritates, I am looking forward for help in this forum of how to get rid of this and bring it back to normal! The full story is....

When you click to boot windows in dual mode, or even if only windows is present on the individual partition, as I had checked it, even after removing the 'Boot-Grub' along with other OS, Windows than moves on to next screen showing, the recovered windows page, only after 'clicking' on that screen Win7 moves on to boot. I want to get rid of this 'intermediate' screen and wish that windows should boot, as soon as it is highlighted, as it used to do, after fresh install, -- before 'Recovery' help me do that, with an understandable tutorial please!

Thanks in advance, this could be a stupid question, but I was really not able to resolve it, and today I thought, 'Maybe some others could have faced a similar problem, and resolved it. So dear please help me out.

Hello Support Users,
I'm having an issue with the OptiPlex 3040 Intel HD Graphics 530 Driver for Windows 10 Pro. The machine will work fine for awhile then while certain applications like Microsoft Excel are running, the machine will stop working and give the following error:"Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered."
This machine has 2 monitors so using the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter doesn't work, even googling if that works or detects such is almost absent. I'm just letting whoever know it doesn't work with dual monitors on Windows 10 Pro.
I've found this link and installed the following display driver to see if that clears the issue + adjusted some PC settings in "Advanced System Settings" Under This PC : Windows still chooses what to do for visual effects and Virtual Memory is now 4096MB. I've also added the TdrRelay = 10 to the GraphicsDriver section in Registry.
Here is the link that's been suggested and the steps I've taken so far, I did skip the DELL driver and went for the initial Intel Generic Driver instead.
Is anyone else facing this issue with their onboard graphics?

This has been a problem since long time ago. I've tried to resolve that by seeking help from people online, however, a tech from Sony I called, just asked me to format my pc which I've already done. Did not help, it begins to happen again.

A:"recovered from serious error" message

From your point of view the files are meaningless please ignore them.

you should be asked if you want to "Notify Microsoft about this problem?" please do its free and we will all befit in the long term.

If you are realy lucky you may get taken to a website which discusses the problem and how to fix it. But this doesn't happen every time.

For now just concetrate on why your system crashed.

Try this.

Start/control panel/system

Adavanced (tab)

Startup and recovery settings

In the system failure box uncheck ?automatically restart.?

Ok ok.

This will not fix the errors but hopefully will give an error code you can post back to us. From there we may be able to help you further.

Each time I boot up my pc (with win xp) , I get the following message:

"The system has recovered from a serious error."

I am then asked to send microsoft a report (which I decline to do)

then when I shut down (following the proper sequence), my system reboots again! I can only shut the pc off by pressing the power button.

I believe this problem began after I installed SP2.

Any ideas?

Disable auto restart on error, then you will get a blue arror screen with (hopefully) a message that will point to the cause.

Write down the error carefully and post it back here.

To disable autorestart,:
Control Panel - System - Advanced - Startup and Recovery/Settings. Uncheck the option in there and OK out.

I just upgraded from Vista Home Premium to Win7 professional x64 hoping to fix the above mentioned problem. After a complete re-install Im getting the same errors.

Im not sure of the proper terminology here, but during startup the computer does a scan of all hardware and "Volume 0" has a "failed" message.

The odd thing is that sometimes after a few restarts and pointless boot menu visits the computer starts up fine.

I tried windows repair feature by booting from the disk, but when I get to the window where i select the operating system to repair, its empty. Drive C, where the operating system is, is not showing.

I have a feeling that the hard drive itself has gone bad and is very unstable. Please let me know if I'm missing something or we just need to get a new HD.

Thank you

What type of hdd do you have. For example if you have a Seagate drive, there is software you can run to do a diagonostic on the hdd before the operating system boots.
This would be a good idea, especially if you were having same issues when Vista Home Premium was installed first.

Do you have more than one hdd installed. If yes, make sure in BIOS settings, the proper drive is selected for First Boot. And better yet make sure its the only drive attached when booting.

Do you have a recovery restore install disc or partition?
You can try doing a repair or system file check...
Scan For Missing/Corrupt System Files...

Windows XP comes with a wonderful tool called System File Checker (SFC)
Itscans and verifies the versions of all protected system files after you restart your computer...
To Do This:
Click Start menu, and then click the Run icon.
In the small box that Opens, type the three letters: cmd then click the OK button.
In the command prompt window that just opened (a black background and white text), type the following command:
SFC /scannow
And then click OK
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to run SFC..
You will need your Windows XP CD during this procedure if SFC needs to get an original file. Please remember that Windows XP can have multiple instances of a .DLL file and remember which version is for which program.
Notes....
I have been asked if it is possible to have a "progress meter" show when SFC runs... This is the registry hack you need. PLEASE do not go messing with your registry if you do NOT know what you are doing!

Since you can't do a repair install in Safe Mode, you'll have to wipe the system and reinstall Windows.
