IRQL_DRIVER_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD Whilst Playing Battlefield 3

Q: IRQL_DRIVER_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD Whilst Playing Battlefield 3

Is Windows 7 Ultimate x64 - x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? -- x64 - the original installed OS on the system? -- Windows 7 Ultimate x64 - an OEM or full retail version? -- Full Retail - What is the age of system (hardware)? -- December, 2011 - What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) -- January, 2012

System specs can be found at my profile: Windows 7 Forums - View Profile: Domenic

This has just started happening recently. I'm not sure what is causing this, so I thought I'd ask here. I've attached what you have asked for.

Since I cannot upload the Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2.zip file to your server because of a size issue, I have uploaded it to mine: http://domenicfiore.com/Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2.zip

Thanks in advance for your help!

EDIT: I'd also like to point out that even when it does not BSOD, after some time (ranges from 1 minute to 1 hour), the game crashes. This is all new, never did this before the latest patch or I have no idea what.

I've made threads asking for help in the past and went back over them before posting here, but I'm kind of stuck again.

I ran furmark without my gpu overheating/crashing, and I ran prime95 again without overheating/crashing. I haven't done any overclocking, and I ran 9 passes of memtest overnight/through morning classes. I just got finished uninstalling amd catalyst 13.9 driver package and installing 13.11 beta driver package this afternoon. Just ran sfc /scannow 10 minutes ago with nothing found.

Any help you could give me will be greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

Playing Dishonoured has been causing my comp to BSOD every 40 mins or so. Temps seem fine but I thought it could be a PSU problem (it's the no-name one that came with the case).

It BSOD this morning whilst Dishonoured was running but minimised, which is weird because the GPU wasn't working hard and CPU was at about 47%.

So anyway, I was hoping that some altruistic soul could check my crashdumps and make sure it's not a driver issue, before I shell out for a new PSU

Thanks!

A:BSOD whilst playing DOTA

If you are using a program like Ccleaner please stop using it while troubleshooting.
This because programs like Ccleaner remove dump files that are needed to troubleshoot.
Or configure Ccleaner to not remove dump files:


We'll have to wait for another BSOD to occur, if another BSOD occurs just follow the posting instructions again and upload a new zip.

Hi,

This is my first post here and after looking around for a while I'm still having problems.

I have read the Posting Instructions and used the SF Diagnostic Tool, results included.
I'm not sure if that includes all my system information, but if anything is missing I'll post as soon as I can.

To clarify further the BSOD has happened on a variety of games, sometimes it can happen with in 5mins of loading one other times I am good for a couple of hours or I can play till I've quit the game with no crashing.

I have done scans with MSE, Spybot and Malware Bytes with no issues found.
From looking at other threads, one recommended using a driver scanner to check for updates (SlimDrives), again no updates found.

That's all I can think of for now, also to be honest I am a bit reluctant in having to do a full re-install and would very much like to avoid that if possible.

Thanks in advance,
Mick

Hey guys. So for the past few months whenever i play any games i eventually get BSOD.. sometimes 5 minutes in.. sometimes an hour in. I've downloaded blue screen viewer and got a couple of screenshots of a couple of different bsod's.. these 2 seem to be the only ones that come up. I tried running a ram tester and that came back with no errors.. Just wondering if anyone can decipher this for me.
Furthermore.. i don't know if this is related or not but if i leave my computer on for say a day or so, everything starts to lag.. videos start to stutter and there is just lag in general in everything i do.. once i restart it all comes good... for a while but then starts up again. I tried disabling every non essential startup program but it still does it.
Thanks guys!

Hello all,

This is my first post on these very helpful forums. I hope someone will be able to assist me.

I have a HP ProBook running Windows 7. Ever since I got the laptop, I often get BSODs while attempting to run games (Total War series, The Force Unleashed, just to name a couple).

I'm uploading the DM Log Collector output .zip file.

Any help would be greately appreciated.

My system is:

Motherboard Asus Crosshair V Formula Z

CPU AMD FX 9370 black edition @ 4.4GHz (not overclocked)

*1 year old*

I have done a full memtest86 (with both sticks in). It took 18 hours and showed no errors.

I play a lot of hours gaming. I used to play Evolve but got banned for 'product tampering' I didn't tamper with my game. I thought it was the games problem, keep crashing but now I play Titanfall 2 and still crash, I think that it may be my PC?

I Found that my Antec K?HLER H2O 1250 was failing to turn one of the fans so I have replaced that with a Corsair H105 water cooler.


Any help or advice would be most welcome...

Hi all,

I've recently switched over from my old HDD to a shiny new SSD. It was a fresh windows install and I've installed all drivers for my gpu, mobo etc. fresh onto this. It seems now though that whenever I play a game I get a BSOD. I've had this happen so far whilst playing Skyrim, EVE online and Company of Heroes, and I haven't really loaded up any other games because there's not much fun if they're going to crash 10 mins in! The crashes occur anywhere between after 10 mins of play and after 1hr. I thought it was a temperature issue as Skyrim used to crash before I got the SSD, but seemed to work fine if I put my fan speeds up to ~90% in MSI Afterburner. After 10 mins of EVE online with the fan speeds set to 90% I got a crash the other day though. I've also tried uninstalling and re-installing my graphics drivers and still got a crash :/ I've also updated my BIOS and that hasn't fixed the problem, so I thought I'd post here and see if someone else can help me get to the bottom of this!

System specs are:
Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3-B3 Mobo
Intel i5 2500K - Not overclocked
Nvidia GTX480 - Also not overclocked
12GB RAM
OCZ Agility 3 64GB SSD

Hi,

I recently installed Windows 7 64-bit over my existing version of 32-bit. Since the upgrade, I have been getting BSOD and auto shut downs whilst playing Battlefield 3 however it has happened a couple times when just using the pc for general use where it would just freeze and start buzzing or restart itself. I have had a couple error messages: dxgmms1.sys, 0x0000007E, 0x0000001E, 0x00000024, 0x0000003B and win32k.sys. I have since tried to repair the install by running it again but the problem is still there. I have done several diagnostic scans, system info scans, device manager etc but none of them report a problem. Never got a BSOD whilst on 32-bit.

What can I do to fix it? Is it possible I have installed 64-bit incorrectly?

Specs:
MSI Twin Frozr III R6950 OC
EA-500 psu
AMD Phenom II x4 965

A:BSOD/Auto shut down whilst playing BF3

A Google search indicates this is primarily caused by a device driver problem. Have you done a Windows update to get all the latest fixes, including device drivers?

What is the make and model number of your computer? Fill out the System Specs (User CP, Edit System Specs).

This could also be caused by defective RAM. Download Memtest86+ (you want the 2nd one Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)). Unzip it then create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called ImgBurn which will do this easily.

DO NOT burn the .iso file directly to CD. It must be used as input to a program that knows what to do with it, like the one I mentioned above.

Boot the CD and run for at least 3 complete passes unless it shows errors sooner than that.

Hello again TSF,
I've recently encountered 2 Blue Screens within the last 2 days, that appear to occur whilst playing the Facebook game 'Sims Social'...
Of course that's probably just a coincidence, but i've never encountered BSOD's on this computer yet (had it for less than 1 year).
It may also be worth noting that if i remember correctly, World of Warcraft was also running in the background whilst alt-tabbing to play on the Sims Social, just incase this links to any reasoning behind the crashes.

Attached (hopefully) items include the required tests from the sticky, aswell as the 2 dumps from the bsods.

Thanks!

A:2 BSOD's 2 days in a row, whilst playing Sims Social?

Okay it would appear that it has absolutely nothing to do with Sims Social
Just had another BSoD, literally within 2 hours of my last one, this time whilst playing World of Warcraft.
I have attached the minidump for this crash.

EDIT: Just to note, after restarting the PC from a crash, a directx9 error pops up. Can't remember exactly what it states, but it's something along the lines of it having issues starting up i believe. The little 'boodle-boop' noise that sounds when you plug in a USB plays a couple of times after a reboot from BSoD.
Sorry if any of this is irrelevant, just feel as though I should note everything i can think of! :)

Hi.

Installing and Using 2 antivirus programs in the same system,usually you dont have double protection. You have double the problems.

Remove avast from your system.
Remove avg from your system.
Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials with windows firewall enable.
You can also use this Good and Free system security combination.
If you had make any changes in windows using TuneUp Utilities,set everything back to default then uninstall TuneUp Utilities.
Generally TuneUp Utilities they dont "tuneup" the system,they mess up the system.
Windows 7 does not need any "external" help.
Update software\driver for your Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter - Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card.

Finish with the above steps and post back with news.

Hi been getting frequent random BSODs whilst playing world of tanks. Each time the problems seems to be caused by atikmpag.sys. I have tried uninstalling and installing the most recent drivers but got another BSOD as soon as I tried to play the game again.

A:BSOD whilst playing World of Tanks caused by atikmpag.sys

All of the dumps are 0x116 VIDEO_TDR_ERROR (Timeout Detection Recovery) which can be down to the driver, heat, power to the card, the PCI slot it's in or a bad card among other things. Your driver isn't the most recent from what I can see so we'll try that first.

Download the latest driver from here and save it to your desktop. Download DDU and follow Display Driver Uninstaller: How to use to remove all traces of your current driver. Reboot and install the downloaded driver.

Hello!

So let first start of by saying that i've been trying to get rid of these BSoD a long time,
this is not my first time asking for help on forums. I'm going to link to a page where i have posted most of my problems with this computer and they've tried to help me, anyway here it is: BSoDs & Reboots That's the site where i got most help.

Anyway on to the problem, they've concluded it's memory corruption and i've ran Memtest86+ twice & 6-7 passes on the sticks in different slots. I've tried to change
the speeds and timings on them, but my computer refuses to use them as my computer freezes and upon reboot it gives me some error telling me "Overclock failed, reset to default?" although it isn't really overclocking it's their default value. The BSoD problem persisted. So after not getting any responses to my latest posts i thought that i'd remove one memory stick too see if it'd work. And it did, i've only gotten 2-3 BSoDs since and that's 3 weeks, i was used to getting them 3 times a day if not more. Reason for making this thread is that i got one while idling today.
Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ?
x64
- the original installed OS on the system?
Yes
- an OEM or full retail version?
Full retail
- What is the age of system (hardware)?
1 year and a couple of months old.
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?)
7 months, i think i reinstalled it in February

Hi there,
I would be very grateful of any help you could give me to resolve this problem. I am new to your forums but have read several replies to other peoples posts in an attempt to find a way solve my own, to no avail. (some of what you have suggested is way over my head)
For a few weeks when I shut down the PC it takes ages to shut down, or has to be manually turned off because its clear it isn't going to shut down properly on its own.
The other day my elderly neighbour who doesn't have a computer said her niece had mailed her via my computer with some information she wanted. When I opened the mail there was a .pdf file attached, which I opened, and looked at, shortly afterwards I was looking on the John Lewis website for my neighbour and my PC froze completely. The mouse wouldn't move, and I couldn't Ctrl+Alt+Del, toggle out or do anything but a hard restart. Once I had rebooted, I ran an AVG scan, and it found no threats. The PC worked fine for a few hours, and then when I ran World of Warcraft later that evening, after playing for a short while it froze again. The music still plays in the back ground, but the game froze, and again, couldn't toggle out, or Alt+f4 or Ctrl+Alt+Del. Over the next couple of days it crashed like this again around 6 or 7 times. I searched the WoW forums for anything I could do to see if it was WoW related.

Yesterday randomly whilst watching youtube with only three windows open, Youtube, Teamspeak and Notepad I got an unexpected restart.

The recovery process when the Laptop restarted achieved nothing other than the computer knowing that it couldn't fix it.

I then did a factory reset of the operating system due to my personal files being on my second internal hard drive.

After which the first thing I did once it had finished setup was bring up Task Manager. I saw my CPU at 100% never stopping. I closed down the program from e-machines (installs things like Windows live essentials) on the second restart and I appeared to get around 5 minutes up time before BSOD.

I copied what was left of anything personal from my C to D (I chose to keep user files) and am now doing this via Safe Mode.

Attached are my Dumps and a Boot Log.

Not to bump the topic however after using Safe Mode for about 30 minutes I wondered if it was over and started in normal mode. Five minutes in I got BSOD and this time it was something different, see attached. Also I saw this topic moved into here and filled out the form:

Hi all, I just built a new computer a week ago. It has been running fine for a week, and I've played Battlefield for a week with no problems. However, now I can only play for ~5 minutes before I get a BSOD.

I've run Memtest and sfc /scannow, both giving me the all clear. Also I just ran chkdsk without a problem.

Hey guys,

I just got a first ever BSOD with this game.
Hardware temps are fine.
[Requested files are included]

Now, I should mention that I've had this game for the passed 4-5 months and it worked flawlessly.
The only different thing that I did today (right before getting the BS) was changing the MSIAfterburner fan setup to work at 80% when hitting 60C (it used to be much lower).

EDIT: Happened again (!!) just now while rendering a video with Sony Vegas.

Any idea?

First off if your OCing in anyway stop, return everything to stock settings for the purposes of testing

You have a lot of crap in your startup recommend you light it as much as possible, the only thing that actually needs to be there is your AV
Speaking of AV for the purposes of testing get rid of avast (a known BSOD causer on some machines) and install MSE

If you havent already, fill in your system specs so we know what we are dealing with
System Info - See Your System Specs

Make sure you have read the guide on asking for help with BSOD so you know what we need
http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html
And if necessary set your machine to create minidumps (Method 2 Step 2 is easiest IMO)
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Run some scans to check against virus or infection

Windows Defender Offline

Hi.

If the crash occurs only while playing Battlefield 3 then it may be a game fault.

Though all your minidumps pinpoint to hardware error,so please read this,

Was playing Battlefield 3 campaign on my new, recently built PC. Haven't crashed before this but I also haven't got to play it much till now (maybe 30 min-1hr a few days before this).

I actually did not receive a BSOD, it just crashed and restarted. The error after reboot told me it was a BSOD, though.

Edit: Just locked up again. Didn't restart but it froze and I had to manually turn it off. Running like 130 fps with temps in the 63 degree range during a pretty low key time in game, graphics wise.

Hello friends,
ive been having this problem. It just wont let me play for 10 minutes until a BSOD appears and restart my pc.

Lets start with the info required:


Quote:




? OS - Windows 8
? x64
? Its original
? Full retail version
? Age of system: 1 year
? less than an one week
. have you re-installed the OS: no.
? i5 2500
? GTX 560Ti
? GB P67A-UD3-B3
? Satellite 600w




BSOD showed me info like DPZ_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION and DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION

These BSOD only ocurrs with BF3. Tested many games and everything was fine. BTW, legit owned game through Origin.

Another issue: Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2 windows pop-up stopped with the "waiting systeminfo" message. Sysinternals autorun was opened with the "Program is not responding" warning.

Thank you.

Ps.: Attached dxdiag and minidumps as well. I ran memtest+ with no errors. Prime95 too.

A:BSOD while playing Battlefield 3 on Win 8

The Verifier enabled dump named a Windows system process, that usually means a Hardware fault.

One thing we have seen cause this is emulator programs like Daemon tools, uninstall Daemon tools and see if BF3 plays without BSODing.

If it continues run memtest+ to test the ram
D/L Memtest+ burn it to a CD using a free program like Imgburn if you need one then boot from the CD to test the ram, let it run for at least 6 passes or until you see an error.

I get a BSoD after playing BF3 for any period longer than around 10-15 minutes. It locks up the computer and the picture freezes. Have attached the relevant files to help with diagnosing the problem.

My System Specs are: -

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail - installed a few months ago)
ASRock G41M-GS3
Intel Q8200
8GB RAM
BFG GTX280 OC
Corsair TX650 PSU



Thanks in advance for helping me out.

Only 4 updates installed after SP1 - most systems have more than 70. Please visit Windows Update and get all available updates.

If you're overclocking, please remove the overclock while we're troubleshooting. Let us know if the system was overclocked at the time of the last BSOD.

The memory dumps are hardware related. This is most likely a hardware error - which includes:
- overclocking
- compatibility issues
- low-level driver problems
- malware

Please start by running these free diagnostic tests: Hardware Diags

Further info on BSOD error messages available at: http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs:
3RD PARTY DRIVERS PRESENT IN THE DUMP FILES
- Create a System Restore Point prior to doing any of this. DO NOT mess with the drivers themselves - leave the Windows\System32\drivers directory alone unless we specifically direct you to it!
- Please either update the older drivers from the device manufacturer's website - or uninstall them from your system. Reference links are included below.
- DO NOT use Windows Update or the Update Drivers function of Device Manager.
- Please feel free to post back about any drivers that you are having difficulty locating.
- Windows Update exceptions may be noted below for Windows drivers.

Hello, I recently picked up Battlefield 4 and have had a few blue screens that have been accompanied by a loud audio loop before the system resets. I went ahead and reformatted my system and reinstalled everything as far as drivers and utilities but the problem persists. My system temps across the board are stable when playing so I don't believe it to be that. I ran a full pass on my ram in Memtest86+ which took around 3 hours and it came back with no errors. I then ran a Prime95 Blend test which ended in a blue screen after just a few minutes. A Small FFTs test also blue screened a few minutes later than the blended. My system specs are in my profile and attached is my .dmp file, any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:BSOD playing Battlefield 4

Hello and welcome DW first up you need to run at least 8 passes to get a correct memtest see this
MEMTEST
The memtest you will need to make a bootable disk / stick and set the BIOS to boot from the optical or USB and it will take a fair time to run- some leave it overnight. see the attached document.
But one thing is very important you must let the test run for at least 8 passes any less and the findings are no good. Now if errors come up straight away then you can stop it - see my pics. Now if there are errors and you have more than one stick of RAM in then you will need to test each stick ie remove the sticks and replace stick 1 in slot 1 and test no errors do the same in slot 2 with stick 1 no errors then repeat the process with stick 2 - that will show up the faulty stick - the other thing is it could be a faulty slot but most unusual.
It is a very lengthy and tedious process but worth it if you have errors.

It is very lengthy to do as I said so test with all the sticks in and if errors come back then you will have to test each stick in each slot.

You should reseat the sticks and even do this while you are at it
SLOT CLEANING
Now as for the slots to clean them use a strip of old credit card (or any card thin enough some are better than others ) about 1/2 inch wide nip the corners off one end - preferably round them offhold a piece of thin lint free cloth over the end dab on some form of alcohol - isopropyl alcohol (what we swab the skin with before an injectio...
