BSOD randomly, more frequent when starting up/logging on

Q: BSOD randomly, more frequent when starting up/logging on

Help! My Alienware M17xR3 started to BSOD a couple of days ago. It now happens almost every time I start up/log on and sometimes randomly.

System Specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Intel Core i7 2720-QM @ 2.20ghz
16GB
nVidia GTX560m
750GB SATA (7200RPM)

Attached the SF file, thanks!

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.)

A:BSOD randomly, becoming more and more frequent

Hello Tarumog. Your BSODs are stop 0xA (Usual causes: Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility)

Your BIOS seems to be very old.

Code:
BiosVersion = 0703
BiosReleaseDate = 10/15/2008
Update it. Get the Version 2209, dated 2010/11/09 (the latest one available for your motherboard, Asus P6T DELUXE) from http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P6T...rt_Download_30 .



   Warning
BIOS updating is risky. If you dont have the concept about how to do it, take the help of somebody who knows it,or ask a technician. Whatever, what you will do will be at your own risk.

At the same time, test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

BTW, which antivirus you are using?

Also, upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.

So I reformated my comp with windows 7 x64 and now i get BSOD really frequent and really randomly.

Sometimes when im doing nothing it just BSOD, when i play games it will BSOD, when i listen to music it will BSOD anything i do will result in a BSOD.
Sometimes it doesnt happen for a long period of time and other time it does it like 4x in a time span of 2 hours or less.

At a lost on what is causing it to happen please help.

Heres my Dump files from SF diagnosis.

A:BSOD Randomly Frequent!

I don't have WinRar installed so I cannot open that dump file.

I just wanted to point out that on every BSOD is an error number. If it is one that lingers until you close it, read it and copy it, and then post it here or Google it. Besides the error number, it should tell you what the problem is and what program is associated to what caused the program failure. All that information is posted.

The error number is usually placed in the lower portion of the BSOD, usually just below the middle of it, and to the left. It usually looks something like,
Error Number = 0x000004650423787
That number is your key to the solution to your problem.

Hello Rupert Connors & welcome,
Nothing definitive was gleaned from your analysis.
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver may be causing the problem.

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!
1-Memtest.





Quote:
*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.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

I have been having BSOD issues for quite some time and would appreciate ANY help deciphering. I recently replaced the power supply in my machine as the old one went bad. I was hoping this was the issue all along yet the BSODs have persisted and become more frequent over the past several weeks. Other options I have tried have been upping the CPU voltages slightly as well as enabling only one CPU. Still crashing frequently.

Any other options I might try would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!

I work for a non-profit and we recently had some refurbished computers donated. One of them, however, has been having random BSOD issues since install. I had a friend who is reasonably tech savvy help me out and he ran a BIOS diagnostics (I think that is the correct term) and determined that there was nothing wrong with the hardware.

I've tried uninstalling all the gimmicks that Dell included with their system (Dell Stage, ebay, Bingbar, etc) just to get to the base system, but just when it seemed like that was working I started getting the BSOD again.

Here is the info from one of the crash reports that loads after Windows reloads after a crash:

Is Windows 7 . . .

- the original installed OS on the system? No - Homebuilt computer
- an OEM or full retail version? Full Retail

- What is the age of system (hardware)? roughly 3 years - different components are different ages
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) approximately 8 months

I haven't recently changed any hardware, so I'm not sure where to start - I ran the memory test overnight and found no errors, I ran a video card stress test for about an hour with no issues, my HD's both sound fine (I know that's not the only symptom, but just to put that out there).

I did have two of these memory sticks running in dual channel, but when I initially installed Win7 it would hang at the install screen and it ended up being because of one of the sticks of memory (which is why I'm only running one 2GB stick now), so that was my first thought - but it ran fine for months on this stick, and the memory test ran fine so I'm steering away from this.

I get this error very frequently, and almost always on the first boot of the session (if I wait a couple hours I boot it and it freezes at boot and then loads fine the second time).

I'm at college so I don't have another computer I can pull parts from (or the Win7 disc), so I was hoping that somewhere hidden in these files it might give a hint as to what is wrong... Please let me know if I left something out that will help!

This is an old computer I built myself around 8 years ago. Started getting BSOD about a month ago. Just happened once and didn't think much of it. Got another one a couple weeks later, another about a week later, and then this weekend the computer hits a BSOD any time I try to do much of anything. Ran scans to check hard drive and memory with no results same with virus scans. Eventually gave up and reinstalled windows but I'm still getting them.

BSOD seems to occur some what randomly but I think it started around the time I first got my new Razer Anansi keyboard... I also just realized it seems to occur almost exclusively when I'm using it during periods of high load (playing games, installing software, running scans etc)... It's the only thing that has changed about my system since I got it... but seems to be working fine to type this so maybe I'm looking to much into it.

I have recently been getting BSOD and black screens, forcing restarts often on startup of games though they also occur randomly throughout if not on startup. The GPU was no stock in my system, I added it around 2 months after I bought the desktop. There has been a black screen issue since I first installed the GPU although it rarely forced a restart until the last week or so, before this time it also never caused BSOD. The only manual change I have made to my software recently has been an update to the latest beta drivers for my card two days ago, though the problem existed before that as mentioned above. With the aid of a friend I did a clean install of drivers this evening with the intention of ruling out corrupt drivers I believe. All temperatures have been well within the ranges that I'm led to believe are normal. The temperatures as I most often see them are (according to SpeedFan): Temp1 26C, Temp2 31C, CPU 2C, HD 27C, GPU 30C.

I have also collected a WhoCrashed report and have attached it to this post, I hope it is useful. Thank you in advance for any assistance, as you can understand trying to fix this myself with little knowledge has been a little frustrating.

Hello,

My computer was running fine back 8 to 10 months unless I started getting these BSoD errors.
Okay let me clear few things first;

1. My PC randomly started restarting itself while playing Dota 2 game.
2. Later on I randomly get these BSoD while starting up my PC and even while normally browsing social media sites, etc. While getting BSoD while starting up my PC, it creates a dump file and then boots normally and I don't really get any BSoD until next restart.
3. I never had any BSoD while playing Dota 2 but my PC instantly restarts.
4. I had several Processor thermal trips which was due to over heating of the processor for which I applied thermal grease which helped the issue.

Okay so I'm still not able to find the root cause of the BSoD as I updated all my drivers. Did check my Hard disk for errors but it was perfect. Ran memory diagnostic through BIOS and it was just fine as well.

MY GPU does over heat while gaming its reaches upto 72'C and 54'C in idle state.
Idle state CPU temp is normally 40'C and while gaming it goes upto 55'C.


Specs of my system are as follows.

Hello,

I have just returned home to my desktop (Used my laptop at school) and it is still having blue screen problems.

I have had this computer for over a year, and ever since I built it, it randomly blue screened.

I have changed the memory and ran memtest(Like a year ago but i did it), I also purchased a new hard drive so i know its not the ram or the hard drive thats causing my problem.

I was never able to find out what was wrong with my computer because of the fact that it never gave me minidump files. Recently for some reason, it started to give me actual minidump files.

I have uploaded my minidump files, so if anyone can take a look that would be great.

In terms of what im doing when it happens, its completely random. Sometimes it happens 5 minutes after turning on the computer, other times it takes weeks.

I have been getting a BSOD sometimes. Sometimes the computer goes blank. Sometimes the screen just freezes and makes a loud noise as if it was an issue with the graphics card. Pretty much all of these occurences have happened with about a half hour of starting up my computer. I have been able to let it run afterward and play games through the night if I can power through these first hiccups. I have updated everything I can but nothing helps. I have quit shutting down my computer completely and just putting it to sleep, but the BSOD finally hit me today after trying that trick. My BSODs have been extremely inconsistent and after maybe about 7-10 of them, not one has said the same thing. Most the time they haven't been able to make a dmp file, but I have 3 of them that I was able to grab.

I hope I posted to this forum correctly as I am fairly new at this and been able to fix all problems on my own in the past. Thanks for any help that anyone can give me.

On top of this, I now have randomly applications including Spotify and Chrome just crashing - Chrome has crashed twice in the time it has taken me to write this post.

Dear Seven Forums,
I'm looking for help regarding my pc that I built 3 months ago.

I am having random crashes of all types:

- 99% of the games crash to desktop after 10-15 minutes (Overwatch,Eu4,Hoi4, CIV V is OK,Witcher 3)
- can't use chrome / firefox for more than 1-2 minutes because of either 'Oops.. something went wrong' or the applications close without error.
- Randomly appearing crashes of antimalware-service and explorer.exe

and of course many blue screens while 'browsing' ,playing

What I've also noticed that I can go playing EU4,Warthunder 3-4 hours without issues and then suddenly keep BSODing the next 4-5 restarts.
I've filled out the PC specs in my profile.
What I've already tried:
-I've reinstalled Win7 3 times and reinstalled Win10 2 times. All of the fresh installs resulted in blue screens.
- I've also tried adjusting BIOS settings like setting tad higher RAM voltage, CPU voltage, running the PCIE in 8x or 4x Mode, and using XMP settings. The recent 3-4 blue screens happened with all the BIOS settings reverted using 'Restore default settings'.
- I've been using 2x4 2400Mhz Kingston DDR4 Rams the first 2 months, but replaced them with the Corsair ones in hopes of solving the BSODs (I've done a clean install + BIOS reset after replacing the RAM)
-edit: I've also tried disabling hardware acceleration in hopes of solving the chrome crashes

Looking for tips to finally be able to identify the faulty driver/hardware

Thanks

Are you actually getting logged off?
If you use the welcome screen, when this happens, does it say Logged On under your user name?
If you don't use the welcome screen, do you get a box saying This computer is in use and has been locked?

Check this: Right click the desktop, choose properties, click Screen Saver tab.
Next to the time setting, make sure the box is not checked.
It will say either On resume, password protect or On resume, display Welcome screen

Within the last week when starting/opening Word 2002 (XP), and also during working in the program, there is a grinding noise that has become all too consistent. Also I'm having frequent crashes, and I really make an effort to clean files, etc. and have few few, if any, programs running at the same time except for NAV and Norton Internet Security. Other than uninstalling and reinstall, any ideas? Would sure appreciate it.

Thanks
 

A:Solved: Noise when starting Word 2002, frequent crashes

This thread might be better handled in the hardware forum, I would think? Usually when your computer is making a physical noise it's a hardware issue. Especially if you're crashing frequently.

Actually, on second thought, does this only happen when you use Word? What type of computer do you have and when did you buy it or last update it? If it only happens when you use Word, there might be a background process on your computer seeking/writing something on your hard drive (which would sound like a really fast clicking, fast enough to seem like a grind). If that's the case then you're probably not going to want that...I don't know much about it but it's possible that some malicious code got inserted into your normal.dot file (if this only happens when you use Word). I'm kind of guessing there though. When the noise starts, open the Windows Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and check the CPU Usage in the Status Bar at the bottom of the window. If it's anything above 10%-15% there's something odd going on--that is, if you're not running anything but Word (those Norton apps don't usually require a lot of processor unless they're active).

I'm not a security guy so I don't know much of anything about cleaning up computers but you might want to search the forums here for help on using detection/cleanup software like HijackThis, etc.

Sorry I couldn't be more specific.

Before we can even begin to investigate you need to update or remove this driver. USBNUMP.sys. Yours is from 2002 (windows ME era) and it cant possibly work in win 7.

My HP Probook 4320s laptop was purchased in October 2011 - just before I left for an extended volunteering trip in Kenya.

It quickly developed the extremely annoying problem of freezing / crashing. Unfortunately I was in Africa at this point - so just tried to live with it.

Thankfully, my wife has a laptop that we have been using instead, we just haven't been using the HP at all anymore.

I called the company that it was purchased it from, they asked me to do a memory test & hard drive test - they showed no errors.

They then advised me to reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit (it was preinstalled when purchased).

I reinstalled it, & downloaded all of the drivers from the web (a painfully slow experience on Kenyan internet...!!).

After installing all of them - it's still happening!

I see there are lots of issues with the blue screen, thankfully I have never had that problem, just the freezing.

Sometimes if left for a couple of minutes it will start to work again, sometimes it needs a reset with the power button.

If I was at home in the UK I would insist that it be swapped by the company purchased from, but being over here that isn't an option!

I would apprciate it so much if someone could offer some advice that would actually lead to the problem being solved.

Thank you very much in advance.

p.s. - I'm not extremely computer literate, so please phrase replies as you would to a 5 year old!!!

Hi, Internet Explorer keeps popping up without me ever starting it up. I am running Windows Vista SP1. There are always two separate pages that open up, and they are of ads for various things. I have already looked through dozens of forums and none of the proposed solutions has worked. I NEVER use IE, usually chrome, and sometimes firefox.

I have already started a topic about the preliminary observations made for this error here:My Original Error Topic Link HereThere are total of 2 posts by me there. Because I was asked to post log details for malware examination here so I have started this topic.I was asked there to follow basic malware removal steps from step 6 onwards.There were a couple of hiccups when doing those procedures but I think they were mainly due to high processor usage leading once to Hanging Up of computer (perhaps due to processor going into some sort of infinite loop and I had to hard-restart) and then a Blue Screen of Death both while running DDS. But I don't suspect malware activity here(about the DDS thing) as my PC has a habit of crashing occasionally when processor fluctuates too much or sometimes it used to do so with PFNList corrupt indicating some RAM problem (My earlier RAM of 1 GB was recently proving to be too inadequate, however now I have upgraded it to 2 GB). I suggest that you read my original topic(2 posts by me 1 reply by Broni as of now) from above link and tell me how to get rid of this error as well as the Google Update services.Nevertheless I was able to complete the entire procedure and here are the logs :(DDS.txt pasted here as required and Attach.txt and ark.txt attached) DDS.txt.DDS (Ver_2011-08-26.01) - NTFSx86 Internet Explorer: 8.0.6001.18702 BrowserJavaVersion: 10.2.1Run by Owner at 1:21:01 on 2012-01-02Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.3.1252.1.103...

Windows 10 Insider, Build14965
When the PC is resting, 2 apps seems to start by themselves, almost as if they were a screen saver. I haven't timed them.
I have dual monitors. On one screen will be the Settings menu, on the other the News app, only with the red and black border with no content. I have to x-out to get rid of them.
To try and demonstrate, the best I can do is a snip of the Task Manager.
The Theme settings has only a Desktop Background of a Folder with some sunset pics, change 30 minutes, that have nothing to do with the weird app appearances. Screen saver is None.
Its the same 2 that always show up.
Pete
