Occasional BSOD, Firefox always open.

Q: Occasional BSOD, Firefox always open.

I've got a new system, and almost at random I get a BSOD on occasion. No excessive system load, and the only correlation I can see is that Firefox had been open each time.

I've included CPUZ screen shots in addition to the dump files.

i5 3570k, Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H (F7 BIOS), Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 CAS9 2 x 4GB (Running XMP profile), EVGA GTX 480, SeaSonic Platinum 860w PSU, Cooler Master Hyper 612 PWM, Cooler Master HAF XM case with 2 extra 140mm side intake fans.

Preferred Solution: Occasional BSOD, Firefox always open.

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: Occasional BSOD, Firefox always open.

Analysis:BugCheck 0x124
You have a 0x124 hardware bugcheck. If the system is still under warranty, I would recommend sending it in to have diagnostic tests done and any bad hardware replaced.

Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

For your hardware stop 0x124 crash, read through Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try and use the following hardware checks to supplement that link.
If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

If you have an SSD, make sure the following are up to date:SSD firmware
BIOS Version
Chipset Drivers
Hard disk controller drivers/SATA drivers
If you have a Marvell IDE ATA/ATAPI device, make sure the drivers are up to date from the Intel site or Marvell site and not from your motherboard/vendor support site.

Run all but the advanced tests with SeaTools for HDDs.SeaTools for Windows

SeaTools for DOS
Monitor temperatures during the following tests. Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures. Real Temp is a good CPU temperature monitor.
Speccy - System Information - Free Download will monitor all hardware temperatures.
HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools can be inaccurate for CPU temperatures, but is a good program for GPU temperature monitoring.
Use FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net to test the graphics card GPU. Let it run until the GPU temperatures even out or until the GPU temperatures reach a dangerous level (you can find the max temperature for your card on either the nVidia or AMD sites; if you are not sure, ask us). The goal is to get a steady temperature, find out if the GPU is overheating, or to see if there are any artifacts present in the test itself: look for strange pixelated patterns on the screen or colors that do not look like they belong. Then use the |MG| Video Memory Stress Test 1.7.116 Download to test your graphics card memory. Let the memory test run for at least seven passes; the more the better.

Run Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95 to determine any hardware problems. Run all three tests for a few hours each. If you get errors, stop the test and post back here.

Follow the steps for doing CPU stress test using IntelBurnTest

Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:Shut down and turn off your computer.
Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working. If you do not have an anti-static workbench, desk, or pad, you can use your computer tower/case by finding a metal hold in it, such as a drive bay.
Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Remember to read closely through Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try for the crash.

Hello,I have been lurking bleepingcomputer as a non-member for a while now. I typically am able to find the instructions to fix almost any problem a computer (be it mine or a friends) has from your forum. Now it seems I am unable to find the solution to my specific problem, so I finally signed up as a member! My problem is similar to all these redirect virus issues I have been reading, but slightly different and not quite the same.Here's the problem:Randomly when I am browsing the internet, every now and again a site that I come across (typically while using StumbleUpon [Firefox Add-On]) will redirect to some completely random site. It doesn't appear to follow any pattern, and has redirected to various different websites. The websites I am redirected to are rarely the same website I was redirected to before, the only exception being theclickcheck.com and yellowpages.com, both of these websites I have been redirected to more than once. Additionally, even if I don't have a browser open a pop-up will appear in a new window. If a browser is open, the pop-up window error will occur more frequently it seems(in a separate window, not a separate tab). Also, I noticed each redirect or pop-up goes through google-analytics.com, so this may still be the google redirect virus, but I am unsure.I have had this issue for about a week now, and I have been unable to get the time to really find the problem. I wish to do online banking, bill paying, and the what not but fear that... Read more

Hello, came to this site after being frustrated by my laptop. Also motivated by the fact that a similar (same?) problem was solved on the thread http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...850&hl=db76It started three days ago when I noticed that my google searches (on firefox) were leading me (when I clicked on them) to random websites. One of them is toseeka, and a couple were pages non-existent, and I believe a couple were shopping sites. 1. I ran full scans using symantec and spybot S&D, nothing came up.2. I downloaded and ran Malwarebyte's anti-malware program, and Superantispyware. Both of them found something, and they seemed to quarantine/remove the infection. However, when I used google again, the problem persisted. I ran both the programs again and they found nothing. I tried running them in the safe mode and they still did not find anything.In frustration, earlier today, I completely un-installed firefox and reinstalled it (version 3.5). It initially seemed not to redirect anymore, but that did not last. Around this point, my attempts to reboot were followed, some times, by the blue screen at startup asking me to remove any new software/hardware that I have installed. I resisted the temptation to remove the new anti-malware software that I have downloaded. I am able to always boot into the safe mode.In the normal mode, it gives me the blue screen some times. After a couple attempts, I was able to get into the normal mode, get online, download DDS.scr and ru... Read more

I am having a strange problem where occasionally after a Google search the site I click on will redirect to a dummy search site. If I go back to my search results (back button) and reload the page, the link to the site I'm trying to get to will work. The problem does not seem to be very repeatable (many searches will work, then another redirect will occur). The redirect link does show up in the status bar of Firefox when I hover over a link that will be redirected. The link usually always begins with the URL like:

I ran GMER, but many of the selections that were supposed to be enabled were grayed out. Only "Services", "Registry", "Files", "C:\", and "ADS" were checked - all the others I could not enable. GMER reported:
GMER hasn't found any system modification.

Thank you for any help!

Im running a 6870 with windows 7 64-bit
, for the most part i have had no problems with catalyst or the card, apart from a random occurence where the screen rolls over, so the left side goes into the right and it just moves to the left so it still covers the screen, HOWEVER
thats not my current issue,
i recently used 'Driver sweeper' to clear all AMD drivers and do a fresh install of the frivers/catalyst to see if i could stop the occasional "this driver has stoped responding but has been seccesfully recovered" rerroes, or this screen spiltting issue, because i presumed it was a software issue, and then i re-installed with the 11.12 version, which at teh end came up with a message that there were erros and to read the log, which i did and thety all said sucess with nothing down the bottom saying anything about an error, but it all still worked althoguh i still had hte not responding error
however i recently installed the 12.2 preview drivers, 9aswell as the 12.1 drivers), both of these version after i install them catalyst wont open, on both right clicking the desktop and running ccc.exe
after i installed it i havnt had any not responding or BSOD errors, however i cant acces catalyst, and on some occasions when i installed hte 11.12 drivers random things like not being able to acces catalyst via right-clicking the desktop happened, i have had a look at many posts about it not worknig or opening up ,but they all come back with a fixx where they just removed and inst...

A:Catalyst Wont Open, aswell as occasional Crahses

The only suggestion I can make is to uninstall the DRIVER from device manager, then boot into safe mode by tapping F8 at startup and run Driver sweeper from safe mode. Then boot back into windows and install CCC. As far as the error messages and no errors in the log file, that is pretty common, at least for me.

The search results for any search engine in Firefox/IE have been redirected to advertisement websites.

Hi, thanks for being here. I have suddenly become unable to utilize Google as my search engine utilizing Firefox. In addition, a new tab will occasionally open on its own while I am online after I have chosen to go to a site - i.e., my site will open and an additional site will open as well - an ad site usually. Even the most rudimentary Google searches are redirected to some sort of generalized info hub - somewhat on topic - but not what I desired. Clicking on a site I find in the Google search results takes me to one of these web clearinghouse sort of pages immediately.Any help would be appreciated. My log file is below.

As the title says. I have been getting occasional BSOD out of nowhere for the last month I would say. It approximately happens 2-3 times a week. I don't see any repeating pattern.
Actually the last one happened while I was typing in mozilla firefox to enter an adress. That's the only one I remember when it happened exactly.

It appears that your win32k.sys system file got corrupted somehow.

I did a clean upgrade from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional 64bit and twice now I've gotten a BSOD with the same reason. These were weeks apart. I ran WhoCrashed and it puts out this:

This was likely caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe

file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft? Windows? Operating System

The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect, possibly the culprit is in another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.

From what I can tell ntoskrnl.exe could mean anything. Attached is a zip with the 2 dmp files. If someone can check those out and give me any guidance it would be greatly appreciated.

So far it seems to happen close to when I click Play on a game in my Steam library. Should this be a GPU driver issue, I am uninstalling them anyways to install a new card tomorrow along with making sure my RAM is seated properly, etc. I built this computer about 2 or 3 weeks ago and have had about 4 BSOD as of today. I also ran sfc /scannow in cmd and the cbs log said that it could not repair WTVGOTHIC-RB.ttc which I wouldn't think is the problem to the random BSOD. Any help is appreciated

Also, booting with verifier causes it to blue screen right at start. Which means it is most likely a driver causing the problem. I am just not sure which one.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (possibly directx).
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

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

* If you have raid update its Driver.


*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.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Driver verifier

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver.

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Since yesterday evening I've encountered two stop errors. Both incidents occurring quite far apart from each other. I have a feeling it might be related to Flash, as the first time it happened while listening to a song via a flashplayer, and the second being moments ago, right as I opened a page to watch a live streaming game development tournament. More concerned about the BSOD than missing the thrilling coding tournament.

Anyways, any help would be much appreciated.

EDIT: I am now entirely unsure of the cause, as I tried to reproduce what happened earlier and I was actually successful in viewing the stream.

A:Occasional BSOD

Complaining about NOT getting a BSOD? (just kidding!)

The dump files point to: WUSB54Gv4x64.sys Wed Dec 27 04:41:31 2006
This is a USB wireless adapter driver, which is also seriously outdated.
Also, there have been known issues with some of these (with RaLink chipsets) in the 64 bit flavor - but that has recently been fixed.

Please go to the website of your device manufacturer and download the 64 bit, Windows 7 version of the driver and install it. Test to see if that remedies your problems (if you don't get a BSOD in a day or two, it's probably fixed).

Hi guys,
this is my third posting today on the same issue.
For some reason, I receive an email that somebody has answered my post and when i click on the link I get invalid thread "no thread specified", so I cannot see the answer.

I am experiencing occasional BS and need to know what drivers are causing this.
I include a zip file of SF diagnostics.


A:occasional BSOD

Might not be a driver, might be a dodgy controller on the SSD? Does Corsair use Sandforce? There are numerous complaints about those if you scout around a bit.

Can somebody check this out for me? I recently built a new computer and finally installed Windows 7. After about 2 weeks of Vista, I had gone back to XP because my old P4 couldn't handle Vista too well.

Well, got a new computer and decided to install Windows 7 Ultimate x64 after hearing many good things about it.

Here I am. A few days of Win7 and a few BSOD's already...

I'd appreciate it if somebody could pinpoint what's causing the error.
I had copied the text portion of the pop-up window upon reboot. Here they are.

I suggest testing your memory. Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using ImgBurn. Boot from the CD, and run at least 5 passes.

In addition, try running a system files check. Open an elevated command prompt and enter sfc /scannow.

Have you checked windows update for optional updates for the machine.
They're just general kernel mode traps, it could be a bad driver, or it could be bad ram.
The ram can be tested overnight (will need to be done when the machine is not in use)

Hello all,

I have attached the files mentioned in the posting instructions.

I get a BSOD every month or so, but sometimes it happens more often. I have tried updating my RAID drivers and drivers for my graphics card, I have flashed my BIOS, I have run memtest and found nothing.

Most of the time the system will BSOD when I am playing a game, but a few times I have left the computer running on the desktop and when I come back it is on the log-in screen because it rebooted after BSOD.

OS: Windos 7 64-bit
Purchased OEM version of OS (I built the PC)
PC Age: 2 years
Most recent OS install: 1 year (reinstalled when I set up RAID10)
CPU: Intel Core i3 2100 3.1GHz
Graphics Card: Radeon HD 6770
Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
Power Supply: Antec NeoECO 520W


A:Occasional BSOD ntoskrnl.exe


We have two bug checks:


This indicates that the kernel has detected critical kernel code or data corruption.

There are generally two causes for this bug check:
A driver has inadvertently, or deliberately, modified critical kernel code or data. Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) and later versions of Windows for x64-based computers do not allow the kernel to be patched except through authorized Microsoft-originated hot patches. For more information, see Patching Policy for x64-based Systems.
A hardware corruption occurred. For example, the kernel code or data could have been stored in memory that failed.

This indicates that a kernel-mode program generated an exception which the error handler did not catch.
1. Uninstall Zemena AntiLogger.

2. Uninstall ASRock App Charger as it is well known to cause BSOD's (and any other AsRock utilities you have installed).

Remove and replace Norton with Microsoft Security Essentials for temporary troubleshooting purposes:

I have a Dell 600m machine running Windows XP Service Pack 3 and I think it's on its last legs. I'm nostalgic, though, and it's been so good to me that I don't want to buy a new one until it really craps out. So here's my issue:

About two months ago I upgraded the memory from 512MB to 2GB (Patriot PC2700 333mhz), and it seemed to work great. I replaced both slots from 256 to 1 gig, but ever since, I get an occasional BSOD, like every month or so. They aren't always the same thing. The only thing I've installed since this memory upgrade is Google Chrome, but I installed it after I had gotten a few blue screens already so I don't think it is my only problem. I can't find any malware and I ran diagnostic memory tests using Dell's utility but it didn't find anything wrong. Yesterday, I got three blue screens and so ran memtest86+ for 7 passes but it found no errors. So following the instructions in another forum post, I got debugging tools for windows and analyzed a few .dmp files from yesterday in the Minidump folder on my machine.

Here's what I got:

A:[SOLVED] Occasional BSOD


The main problem in all of these appears to be iaStor.sys which is the Intel Storage driver.

Run the update utility from here - http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx

Update anything it picks up, but especially the Storage driver.

McAfee is also a possible problem, if problems still occur after the Intel driver update then uninstall it.


Remove McAfee using the McAfee Removal Tool (MRT) -

MRT --> http://download.mcafee.com/products/...tches/MCPR.exe

Download the MRT & save to desktop. Boot into SAFEMODE (NO Networking) - tap F8 key during boot-up. Then go to desktop, RIGHT-click on the MRT icon and select Run as Administrator.

When complete - re-boot.

Install MS Security Essentials --> http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

Then reset the Windows Firewall to its default settings -

Hi everyone, Ive been getting some bsods, maybe one a day. They happen when i'm not overclocked and when im overclocked, I've played crysis for hours with no problem at 1920X1200, but other times when im just surfing and listening to music, bam: bsod. In fact, two others came with little/no stress on the system, and one came on shutdown.

from what I can tell, (dump files and sysinfo attached) its corrupted memory, but I pass memtest86+ 9+ hours... so it's not corrupted memory?

Realtemp reports 36C idle, 49C max load and prime95 passes after 9+ hours

Heres my build:
CM 690 case
CM realpower Pro 550W
[email protected] with xigmatek HDT-S1283
4gb gskill 800 5-5-5-15 (2x2) (had errors on memtest at 1.8v, passes at 1.9v, but still getting bsods)
gigabyte EP43-DS3L
sapphire HD 4870 with fanspeed set to 45%, catalyst 8.7
pioneer blu-ray
segate barracuda 750 gig
running vista home premium x64 sp1

So I would suspect the power supply, except the crashes happen when I'm basically doing nothing, not when I'm stressing it. It's about a week old build... so really anyone have some ideas what else I can test to find what might be wrong, or even which part i should RMA? Thanks in advance

Hi y'all,
I'm having a somewhat tentative issue with my computer blue screening coming out of hibernation or standby. I'm currently running Windows 8.1.
After waking, my internet browser will suddenly stutter and freeze. I get an error about shockwave flash not responding, or failing, I can't remember exactly. Stopping the plugin returns things to normal. Having it try to continue just leads to another lock up and error message.
However, after stopping the plugin, the computer blue screens a few seconds later, usually when trying to get to another website, with an error with debutfilterx64.sys. This error occurs once every several months, I'd wager, and is very infrequent. The shockwave flash error sometimes doesn't even lead to a crash.
I'm told this is associated with debut media software, specifically the Debut Video Capture, though I did not voluntarily install this to my knowledge, and I am the sole user of this laptop. However, the driver is clearly on my computer.
I took this to microsoft, and their solution was to uninstall the program, which I was unable to do through the programs manager or revo uninstaller. The solution was to then rename the driver to .old instead of .sys. However, on restarting, my audio system was completely broken, unable to play any music or sound and saying there was an issue with real tek audio. It was unable to automatically fix the issue. Renaming the debut driver to .sys solved that, so they seem to be directly... Read more

A:Occasional BSOD with debutfilterx64.sys

As you said earlier, crash dump seems to blame debutfilterx64.sys as the reason behind the crashes.

BugCheck 3B, {c0000005, fffff80002603156, ffffd0003b9c2a10, 0}

Probably caused by : debutfilterx64.sys ( debutfilterx64+3156 )
Since we don't know which program actually installed it ( probably came as part of an OEM pre-installed software )  , i would suggest updating the driver to the latest version as a test. If i assumed correctly, installing the latest version of Debut Video Capturing software will update the existing driver automatically and properly. So download and install the latest version from the below link.
Hope this help you.

I ran a check using the CD to check everything, and it said everything was ok.

The following day, the computer didn't restart once & I didn't get a blue screen.

So far, I am having more problems with the auto restarts.

I am tempted to just start over & format the disk.

My homebuilt computer has suffered from periodic BSOD since it was built 3+ years ago. The first few months of its life it was a Linux computer, which suffered from occasional rebooting. Windows 7 ultimate has been installed for the last 3 years, during which time BSOD have been common. There have been 3 periods of time recently where they have been more frequent.

1) My CPU fan died and I didn't catch it, resulting in very frequent BSOD. After I replaced the fan and started running Core Temp 1.0 RC4 and continuously logging fan temps, BSOD occurrence dropped dramatically. This was Jan or Feb 2013.

2) I implemented a periodic disk defragment using MyDefrag. BSOD were a frequent occurrence during the nightly defrags. BSOD occurrence dropped dramatically after deactivating these defrags. This was Feb or March this year.

3) I had a BSOD yesterday. It happened right after I woke the computer, as I was typing a URL into Chrome, first thing in the AM.

Thinking back, many of the BSOD occur as the computer is waking up. The exception is when I was running MyDefrag; I would frequently find the computer crashed during the night.

Any assistance in troubleshooting this would be appreciated. I have other Windows computers which have never BSOD, so I think it's reasonable to expect to be able to operate crash free.

Ever since I finished this build, I have had occasional BSOD's while gaming. The game does not seem to be significant as it crashes in multiple games. The only adjustments I have made so far in the BIOS was selecting the XMP profile recommended for my RAM. After I made that change, I ran Memtest for a few full cycles with no errors. The last error I had was in the middle of a game. I began hearing a beeping sound from my speakers and my mouse was moving very slowly and would not respond to clicks. My computer would react to some of the keyboard keys, but not all of them. I hard crashed the computer. On reboot, I received a message saying that my overclock failed. I found this odd as I did not see setting and XMP profile on my RAM overclocking, especially since it was only setting the timings and frequency to spec, which was 1866 (with no overclocking). As far as the BSOD's are concerned the following bugcheck was given: 0x0000001e (0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000).

Hey guys.

So, a little backstory - last month, I RMA'd my motherboard (MSI Z97S SLI Krait) and re-installed it. A couple of weeks later, I got random BSODs. There doesn't seem to be a definite pattern to them. Some are while I'm playing a game, some are while I'm just watching a video. Some days, I don't see one at all. The error I've seen mostly is IRQL_not_less_or_equal.

I'm thinking it's a driver issue, though I have no idea where to start looking. I tried using the Windows debugging tool, all I could find was "probably ntkrnlmp.exe".

For the last couple of years I have gotten blue screens more or less frequently. I can't say I've been doing anything specific when I get them, and the time between them has varied from perhaps half a year to one day now today.

0x00000124 seems hardware related, and I did overclock my CPU to 4,4 GHz when I got it, and at least according to CPU-Z it is still running at that. However, the blue screens appear both when I'm gaming and just casually browsing, also I ran Prime95 yesterday for perhaps 10 minutes with the CPU at full stress and nothing happened. I have tested the memories with Microsoft's built-in tool, but not yet with Memtest.

It blue screened again just now, so it seems to get more and more frequent (thanks Chrome for saving my text), also the temperature of the CPU seems a bit high idling at close to 60 degrees C, but that alone shouldn't be the reason...

I've attached the dump files and all that.

A:Occasional BSOD 0x00000124

Any ideas? The CPU is running at about 54 degrees now, a little hot for idling... Still, hard to believe it's the temperature if the sensors are correct, but perhaps it's something else with the CPU like too low voltage or just that it's broken since it doesn't seem to matter if it's under load or not.

The issue being with "hal.dll" and "FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: X64_0x124_GenuineIntel_PROCESSOR_CACHE" makes me believe it might be the CPU, but I'm no expert so if anyone with experience reading these dump files could give me some opinions it'd be appriciated.

Hi there, I am getting an occasional BSOD error when I get home some days. My pc is off when arriving at home when I have left it in a sleep mode. Once I start windows 7 I get an error with this explanation.

I would be incredibly happy if someone could give me insight as to what this means.

Many thanks,

Hey guys,

Just a bit of info behind this-
Over the course of the past year or so, my computer has had random BSODs. It is fairly new too - got it in December 2010. What is starting to concern me is that I got a BSOD today, but I had got one yesterday as well. I'd really appreciate it if anyone would help me with this as I would really like to possible resolve this issue before it gets worse.

Thanks Please find attached my Diagnostics tool results.

1. Download and save this tool to your desktop:

2. Run the tool, and then click 'Copy' - ignore any errors if they appear
