Graphics card disabled due to continuous blue screens

Q: Graphics card disabled due to continuous blue screens

I have had this pc for almost 3 years now. This issue has been occurring from early use. I have had to disable my graphics card to have basic use of my computer. It just about manages to handle audio recording but i need to edit some videos as part of my work and its impossible without some form of graphics card.

I have attached the relevant zip as detailed in the link. Any help would be much appreciated

I have tried driver updates/rollbacks, unplugging the card and checking everything looks ok etc. So not a lot really. Cheers

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.)

Hello Paul!

The dump files are 2 months old of no use. We need latest ones to identify the problem. Clear the Minidump folder under C:\Windows. Wait for the system to crash. If your positive it's the display card then run few stress test to determine the stability.

The display driver date I see is pretty old i.e. from 2010. Try to do a complete Driver Cleanup. Here is a tutorial nVidia Driver Cleanup Guide | Captain Debugger

Check this article STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting there are few stress tests.

Hi, I play CS:GO on the computer pretty often and the computer I use wouldn't necessarily be called a reliable or good computer for that matter. But Recently ( yesterday ) I was playing and then randomly my computer started having screen tears and then it eventually blue screened. I let it do it's thing, but during the reboot, the resolution had been changed ( black bars on top/bottom and both sides ) and there were a bunch of random zig zag lines on the screen. My normal resolution is 1920x1080 and now since the crash yesterday I can't change it any higher than 1280x1024. I've tried updating my drivers and nothing has changed it. A friend told me to try and open Nvidia Control Panel and it says something along the lines of "Nvidia display settings are not available - There is no display currently connected to an Nvidia GPU". I have no idea what that means as I am by no means a computer wiz.

Graphics Card - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280

Thanks in advance guys.

A:Nvidia Graphics Card problem, blue screens and reso changes

Hi, Welcome to Seven forums.

Get DriverSweeper first and the latest available drivers for the GPU. Uninstall the drivers and run the sweeper. This will remove the left overs of the old drivers. After this, install the latest drivers for the GPU now. It will be like fresh install of the drivers.

It appears that my Geforce GTX 550 Ti is causing my computer to shut itself down, at least I think it is. What happens is that I boot up my PC and it gets to the desktop normally, and continues to work normally for about a minute, two if im lucky and then my screens (I have two) go black. It still has power but appears to have completely crashed, the fans still spin and the graphics card fan in particular goes into overdrive, becoming very loud.
If I reboot, I get enough time to check the action center which told me I had a power management driver problem and needed to install new drivers. I had enough time to do that between two reboots (1 for download, 1 for install) and succesfully installed new asus PSU drivers. Then the problem just kept happening as it had and action center eventually told me that my "Nvidia graphics driver has stopped working 2 times(s)". The action center was unable to find a solution and trying to download new drivers doesnt work because I get maybe halfway through downloading them before the PC shuts down again. Even if I could get the drivers from another computer I suspect it would still shut down during driver installation.
So thats where I am now.

I am running windows xp - sp2. For the last few days, I was getting continuous blue screens whenever I booted up my laptop with the following message:

ar5211.sys tried to write to read-only memory space......

This kept on happening a lot, so I found out that this may have been caused by an Atheros driver and decided to disable it from startup through msconfig. Now the laptop runs fine, but whenever I lose wireless signal, it blue-screens once again.

Has anyone faced this problem, how have you fixed it?

I've had numerous blue screens since I've had it, they can be either when I start the pc and it is idle on start screen or when I am simply browsing the internet. Very inconsistent, but once it's up and running it seems to be fine, haven't had any during long sessions.

I've done a bit of research and I've found it may be driver incompatibility? I'm not really sure where to start though and would really appreciate if someone could take a look at the attached .zip and try to help me figure out what is wrong. Thanks.

I hate for my 1st post to be a troubleshooting post, but I really appreciate any help.
My pc build is about 2 months old, and about 2 weeks ago I started getting BSOD every session on my pc. I monitor my temps, and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary and didn;t notice a pattern to the BSOD. And I've never gotten the same error message twice. I will begin logging these errors codes. I did notice that quite a few error messages mentioned memory.

Another thing that's happening is on some of the reboots the pc will either freeze completely, or the pc will start up for a few seconds, fans will spin and leds light up, then it shuts back down. Then repeats this until I remove power form the tower. After a few minutes it will boot back up.

Recently I noticed that my resolution was maxed at 1024*768 and i couldnt go any higher than that and in all of my frustration and attempts to figure out why this was occuring i managed to disable my graphics card and now upon startup, everything seems fine while the windows XP logo loading page is up then when the blue screen should appear and the desktop, all i get is a blank screen. It seems like the comp is startin properly, just that i have no graphics. Ive tried to go into safe mode but while it begins to load it then stops at agp440.sys which i then disabled in the recovery console but then it just stops at the previous process and so on.

Does anyone know how I can re-enable my graphics card or fix this problem about not being able to get into safe mode???

I cant find anywhere in BIOS where I can re-enable it... I've also taken out the mobo batt and reset CMOS settings but still no go!!!

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Hi there everyone.
I've recently assembled a wonderful build for my new gaming needs, but I have yet to have it running stable. For the past week, I have been having nothing but random crashes.

Current Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit)

I've re-installed Windows so many times now in attempts to resolve the issues assuming it's related to drivers (terrified of the fact that it might be hardware). I have also attempted to stress-test out the graphics processing unit, have run many tests on the RAM, and have tested the CPU as much as physically possible. No errors have shown up here, but on each installation of Windows, I've found myself with blue screens.
I have ALSO updated my graphics drivers from the AMD website, specifically for my Radeon 7950.

There are so many different combinations of issues that I've become fed-up with playing it by what I read, so I came here.

I've posted any and all of the contents from my "C:\Windows\Minidumps" directory onto my Skydrive, which you may find in the link right below.

I'd also like to add that it may not actually be the graphics processing unit, as much as I'd like to think. I've had blue screens ever since I first assembled the computer, which at first, I used the integrated Intel chip.

Hi everybody

I am new to the forum and look forward to your advice.

My system is dedicated as a virtual recording studio and comprises

Pentium 4
XP prof SP2
Radeon 9250 128Mb
Cubase VST sx3 recording and production software

My problems arise from the installation of the Radeon. Their tech support advised uninstall and reinstall the drivers and download the new control centre.

This enabled cubase to display and run properly but still left me with an annoying problem on bootup.

I have photos of the screens if it will help. The image is unstable in that the screen breaks up continuously into blue vertical streaks until the windows welcome screen appears and then all is well. Entering BIOS setup the screens are more stable but the text letters are coloured alternatively red and yellow.

any ideas?

(As the error message I recieved whilst installing the downloaded update was to switch to VGA mode), having done that I still recieved the same problem, so I went through and disabled the VGA, now when I try to log into windows, I have the problem of not being able to veiw anything on my screen. I know that the computer has not crashed as when I use the keyboard sequence (windows) button > u (shutdown computer) > u (turn off) it does actually shut down.

I was wondering how is it possible to install the graphics card again through maybe the recovery console?

Or is there any way that somebody could SO KINDLY (MAN ID LOVE YOU IF YOU CAN DO THIS FOR ME!) work out the keyboard squence for me to enable it again.

hi i've had a slew of problems with my new computer

-i get blue screened and it says a warning message that isn't the same from the previous windows, you know hwo it normally said your system has become unstable and what not. this message says that there was an error and windows is shutting itself down to prevent further damage

-i get black screened(iduno if thats the term) but what happens is i'll be working on some files and then out of nowhere my monitor goes black, the computer and monitor stay on, but the monitor goes into some sort of standby mode thing where the power light flashes

-i also ocassionally have trouble rebooting one of my other computers and whenever it gives me a problem the screen goes black and there's a green line that goes across the top of the monitor

iv'e tried spy ware removing programs/anti viruses/fire walls none of them seem to be working

any help would be greatly apprecieated
 

A:Solved: blue screens black screens green screens

The issues sound a bit like a hardware failure, the blue STOP screen could be hardware or software.

The Black screen sounds like the PC has died, but the power supply continues to run. This could well be hardware.

Both issues could be something like overheating of the CPU (are all fans running, is the CPU fan dust clogged - shouldnt be if it's "new")?

If it's "new" and under warranty, take it back.

It would have helped to know if it was a desktop or laptop though.

Hello, I've been having a problem where my graphics card is disabled for my computer and I don't know why. I've tried downloading different/older drivers, I've tried disabling and then reenabling the graphics card, I've looked around the internet and nobody seems to have the a solution for this problem. When I go to the device management menu on my computer it says that the device (the graphics card) is completely updated, enabled, and working properly. But when I go on the Crimson menu for AMD, it tells me that it is disabled. Whenever I try to play a video game on my computer and I go to the graphics options menu, the video game tells me that it is using the integrated graphics instead of the AMD graphics and I have no option to switch. I'm attaching several screen shots to this post so that you can better see my point. Is there any way this could be fixed without me having to send my computer back to lenovo?

Hi,

I'm having a very hard time solving a problem on my girlfriend's computer. Her old video card (Radeon HD 4800) broke (the fan wouldn't spin anymore), which would obviously cause shutdowns. So I went to the pc store and asked for a similar card, and they gave me a GeForce GT240. I installed this card as instructed (first uninstall old card and remove drivers, then replace card and install new drivers), but ever since the pc is causing problems. It bootsfine and will sometimes allow me to do stuff for a couple of minutes, but after a while it always goes to eiter blue screen, or a message that the driver stopped working but has recovered (which eventually leads to a blue screen after all). Both events are proceeded by freezing (mouse won't move anymore/ moves slowly, often there is only audio but the screen is frozen). First I thought it was the ram, but I've already run an extensive memory check without any error reports. Ive also done a driver reinstall, first using driver sweeper to remove everything. I've also checked google for answers, of course, but it seems like this problem is very context dependant and hard to solve.

I've attached the most recent dump files to this post. The oldest one is from a crash the day before I installed the new card (I installed it yesterday). This might have been an awful coincidence, but I include it just to be sure.

OS: Windows 7 32bit.

Your help is much appreciated!

An additional window came up asking me if I wanted to close the advanced card verification number window. When I said yes my PC froze and I had to manually turn off my computer to unfreeze the system. B of A thinks Ive been hijacked. I accessed the internet options, programs, and manage my add-ons to see if something within the month of May had been added.

Yesterday out of the blue sky, a sound card error occured on my hp compaq 6720s laptop. I used Uniblue Driver Scanner to scan for outdated drivers, downloaded and installed all the latest updates the program has reccomended and suddenly the system did not recognize my on-board integrated graphics card ( Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 ). Then I opened up the device manager, and under the hardware tab found the display adapter, which had two instances of my graphics card drivers (or something like that, I'm not very proficient at understanding those things). One of the instances has been labeled as non-functioning (location:0, PCI: 2 [or maybe it was 1], function: 0; if I remember correctly) as it said there were no available resources to manage this device.
Then, i foolishly went on and disabled that device (leaving the other instance on with location: 0, PCI 2 [or maybe 1], function 1).
It turns out I've turned off the display drivers for my graphics card and when I've rebooted the system I can't see windows at all, but can still hear the startup sound and windows (probably) operating normally. I tried entering safe mode, with networking/command prompt, debugging mode, last known config, etc. nothing seems to work and I'm running out of ideas.
Is there some way to install the display driver, other than formatting the windows partition?
Thanks in advance and sorry for the wall of text.
 

A:Solved: disabled graphics card drivers

You should never use a driver scanner for downloading and installing a device driver because they're notorious for installing a wrong or outdated driver.

A driver should be downloaded and installed from the computer's support site or from the device's vendor's site or from some other reliable site.

-----------------------------------------------------

By disabling the display adapter in the Device Manager, you now can no longer see the desktop loading.

You need to start the computer and then go into the BIOS setup screen and then see if the display adapter is disabled there so you can re-enable it.
Unless the startup screen says otherwise, I believe you need to press the F10 key to access the BIOS.

-----------------------------------------------------

Here is the support site for the HP Compaq 6720s laptop.

Here is the on-line maintenance and service guide for it.
It's in PDF format, so you need to have Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader installed to read it.

So i was on my laptop and i was playing a game i could normally play without lag. I thought my integrated graphics card had something to do with it so i wanted to disable it so i could run the game way better with my nvidia graphics card. I went to device manager and disabled my integrated graphics card. Suddenly, i couldn't open anything anymore so i went to restart my laptop.I restarted it and as soon as it went on i see my laptop's loading screen working, but then when i have to log into my laptop i see nothing but a black screen and my cursor.
I read something on a windows 7 forum earlier about unplugging the battery for a couple of minutes and putting it back in. And so i did that but the black screen is still there.

A:Accidentally disabled my internal graphics card

You are likely to have one of those laptops that automatically switch from the onboard graphics to the other graphics adapter as the need arises, and in such cases, boot and start using the onboard graphics.

If you can't get into the BIOS to see if there is any way to reset the onboard graphics, you may be stuck with having to do a complete reinstall to get the display working again.

I installed the card and although the fan ran there was no video output. I don't know if the card is DOA or another problem. If I disable the onboard graphics in device manager or in the bios before installing the new card and the new card is in fact DOA, how can I ever regain output from the onboard graphics again for output to the monitor? It seems to me I would be dead in the water with a black screen and no way to do anything. If anyone can help and knows the answers to this problem it would be greatly appreciated!

Okay, I read six of your most recent minidumps contained in your first Zip file and all four in your second Zip file.

Here are the ones that stand out because they give a probable cause.

Two errors are 0x00000050: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card).

The driver cited in both is klim6.sys which belongs to Kaspersky.


Four errors are 0x0000001E: KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
The Windows kernel detected an illegal or unknown processor instruction. A Stop 0x1E condition can be caused by invalid memory and access violations similar to those that generate Stop 0xA errors.

0xA errors are caused by either hardware or drivers attempting to address an IRQ Level they have no business doing.

In all four the same Kaspersky driver kl1.sys was cited as the probable cause of your system crashes.


* I suggest updating Kaspersky and/or doing a search on their forums to see what the community has to say.

By the way, nice PC.

I recently reinstalled windows and replaced my old NVIDEA Geforce 9600GT which finally died with a new Geforce GTX 460. However, when I installed the drivers, it completely disabled my motherboard's onboard Realtek Azalia soundcard, and for the last few days I've had no sound at all. Nothing I've done has fixed the problem, and every time I try to uninstall the drivers for everything relating to my video card, the HDMI audio devices reinstall themselves from no discernible source every single time I boot up like a virus.

I'm about ready to take this pathetic video card back to the shop and demand a refund and get a video card that is not going to screw with my computer like this.

I don't use the single HDMI port on my video card, I use both of my monitors on the DVI ports. I really need some help with figuring out how to get the sound working again through the old audio (output/mic) jacks on the back of the PC to get my speakers and headset working once more.

I'm beginning with this link because it is related to this previous issue. Its still the same computer with the same general problems. However, I discovered that by ensuring that windows media player was constantly playing music, the computer operates fast and smoothly for as long as I need it to (sometimes longer than 24 hours), albeit with the fan running full speed and flooding the house with its noise. All has been well until the other day I needed to burn some cds and reconnected the cdrom. Since then, its been subject to occasional freezes, mostly when left to sit when I leave the house on a whim. I've noticed that I sometimes return to a black screen, but erroneously attributed it to my computers failed attempts to hibernate (even though that option is disabled). Anyway, its been working wonderfully anyway when I've needed to use it. However, today I was doing a little basic browsing, only about three tabs open of an automotive website I frequently read. The screen randomly went all white while loading a page, and the computer froze up. My only option when it does that is to do a hard restart, so I did. I decided to disconnect my cdrom again.

Lets see the details of the Blue Screen, follow this guide to attach it to your next post.


First locate your minidump files, they are usually found by clicking on your C: drive, in Windows Explorer, then click on Windows to view the contents. If your operating system is installed under a different drive letter then look there. They should be stored under a file called minidump.The files will have a .dmp extension.
Zip up at least 6 of the most recent files into one zip folder and save on your desktop (if there are less then just zip up what you have).
NOTE To zip up a file in Windows (all versions). Right-click the file or folder, click on Send To, and then click Compressed (zipped) Folder and save it to your desktop.
Open Windows Explorer, click on Desktop in the left column so you can see the zip file. In the left column click on C: > Windows > Minidump and then drag & drop any additional .dmp files into the zip folder.

Hello. I have been having a serious problem with my computer. Sometimes (but not always), when I change the monitor inputs on the back of my computer, while it is running, the computer fan will suddenly get very loud and the computer will stop functioning. I am forced to shut it off. Usually when I turn it back on, the same thing will happen right away, and I often have to spend a lot of time powering it off and on, maybe up to 10 times, until it will finally run. Then it usually asks me to do a disc check scan, and then it will work for a while, but only temporarily. It used to be able to do this without a problem.

This almost always happens if I pull the cord out too hard, and I have to be very careful, but sometimes this happens without me even touching the connections. Sometimes it happens if I just touch the back of the computer or even if a wire is moved.

I took it in a long time ago, and the person said that it was because I needed a new battery. At the time, I was turning it on, then off, then on so quickly that he thought that may be another reason why and explained that it was like turning a light switch on and off really quickly.

About last month, it started happening so badly that I took it into the computer shop again. I told him that I often change the cords for the monitors in the graphics card while the computer is running . He said that doing that shouldn't be a problem. He cleaned out the computer (I don't have part of the case on it, and the dust i... Read more

Now I try to start my pc but all that happens is that I hear the sounds I always hear but nothing appears in the screens. I have tried several monitors. I have unhooked the monitor from the nvidia and connected it to the onboard gpu and still no luck. I tried resetting the bios but that didn't help either.

Anyway, now I get a screen view until Windows kicks in and then it goes totally blank (though I can hear Windows start via the speakers)

Hi everyone, I'm new here.

Quick history of my comp's problems:
-Bought it and from day 1 it had a blue screen error problem. I tried to track it down myself, but eventually sent it back to where I bought it and they fixed it telling me it was the motherboard.

-Got it back and there were no more blue screens. Hurray! However, while playing games I started noticing strange graphical artifacts (terrain stretching etc). It wasn't a huge problem though, so I ignored it (foolishly).

-The graphics card seemed to get worse and worse until eventually I started getting graphical glitches on the desktop (and following the mouse cursor) and it could no longer play most games without overheating and crashing. I had left it too long to do anything about it and it was out of warranty.

SKIP TO HERE TO AVOID HISTORY
-So I bought a new one to replace it (GeForce 8800GT), which I installed earlier this week. However I now have a blue screen of death problem again. I think it may be the same error I was getting when I first got the comp, but I can not be certain (because I didn't save the info). The problem is:

0x00000F4 (0x0000003 0x8.... 0x8... 0x8...)

So far this has crashed while I have been downloading a patch for and while playing World of Warcraft and has not occurred when running any other games or programs (some of them much more graphically intense), however if my previous experiences are anything to do by, the crashes can occur at any time.

I get an empty Bluescreen when playing 3D games, mostly after a quite short time, but some games I can play up to a few hours. When I start a 3DMark 2005 test, the Bluescreen appears immediately after the first frame.
The event viewer displays the following error codes:
1000007f (0000000d, 00000000, 00000000, 00000000)
At the beginning some 8E errors appeared, but I didn't find them in the last Bluescreens.

320GB WD HDD
160GB Maxtor HDD
Creative X-Fi XtremeMusic

The Bluescreens also happen without overclocking.

The Bluescreens appears since two days after installing my new Zalman CPU-Cooler and like I said, just when I play games with newer 3D graphic.
Memtest86 and Prime95 ran hours long without any problems or bluescreens.

I already formatted the PC and reinstalled Windows with the newest drivers for all devices (but I also tried it with older ones / without soundcard / etc), but the problem is still existing.

So I expect the graphic card to be broken, but I just want to be sure before buying a new one.

Would be great, if someone can say for sure which part is broken or what I could do to test it further.

Ok so here's the problem. My friend recently bought a PowerColor HD7850 2GB GDDR5 graphics card and after installing the card and the drivers, and restarting windows; the loading screen gets all kinds of lines across the screen up until the point where you enter in your log in information and then a blue screen. The AMD install manager is responsible for downloading and installing the latest driver for his device, so he didn't download a bad driver since it comes directly from AMD. Whenever he reattempts to install everything, he has to reinstall windows due to being stuck in the blue screen loop when he attempts to log in to windows regularly. Obviously without the drivers, windows can't detect his card. But any attempt to install the drivers causes the "tears" in the screen.

Here are the specs of his desktop
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k CPU @ 3.40GHZ
Motherboard and slots: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H -- 1x PCI-E 3.0 x16, 4x USB 3.0
8 gigs of Ram
Plus the aforementioned gpu.

Can anyone point us in the right direction as to what the problem may be?

He pretty much can't use his desktop because his card isn't working.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Ok, I'm pretty sure my new graphics card has been causing my computer to blue screen. I originally had it recommended, and installed, by the Geek Squad at Best Buy. The first thing I saw when I got home? Blue Screen. Didn't even boot to the login screen. I bring it back, they tinker around, and it boots ok, but I get periodic blue screens. There's a very rare blue screen out of nowhere, just blue screens. Most often, it blue screens right when it's supposed to show the login screen in the boot process. This was while I had vista.

Now, if I just kept booting windows normally, after a few attempts, it would succeed, and would not blue screen. A very big annoyance, but ultimately, I could use my computer in the end. I upgraded to Windows 7. Everything seemed to be working fine, at first. Then I installed ATI Catalyst Control Center, and upgraded the various drivers. Now it won't stop blue screening no matter how many times I boot it.

I'm in safe mode now. The listed files that it said help describe the issue for the Blue Screen are these:
