BSOD and the (D) Drive

Q: BSOD and the (D) Drive

Since the recent November update I have been getting BSOD about once a day, with the following Notification
 
Driver IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL (dxgmsl.sys)
 
What puzzles me about this (not that I know much about it anyway) is that when I restart the computer  it is not the © Drive that is scanned / repaired but the (D) Drive, an integral SD Memory Card. The © Drive has the OS, on (D) are mainly apps / programs, documents, media. Has this anything to do with the fact that I have used the new option to move apps from © to (D)? Are not the drivers on the © Drive with the OS?
 
Can someone explain, after which I will see if I can follow the procedure for submitting request for BSOD help if that is the thing to do.

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.

Hiya

I've just finished building my new computer and I'm getting BSOD errors when first formatting a hard drive and secondly (after a successful format) installing a game on it.

My boot up SSD drive seems to be fine, it's just my other hard drive.

64bit Windows 7 Home premium. Full version I bought a a few days ago. The whole computer is new. If you need any further information, let me no.

8GB RAM. Intel Core i5 2500k CPU. Radeon 7850 graphics. 120ish SSD. 1Tb hard drive. Asus P8Z68-V Pro gen3 motherboard.

Edit: having just seen a notice, I've updated the post to contain two attachments. Or atleast I think I have :\

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hi all. When booting up my PC it causes a BSOD at the Window password screen displaying the error 'Driver_irql_less_or_not_equal'. The only way I can start the PC is by booting whilst hitting F8 and choosing 'Last known good configuration'.


I've tried to do a system restore twice but it caused a BSOD both times. I am running Windows 7 64 bit.

Please help?!

Thank you.

Hey folks I have a hd with wonn xp home on it and when I go to boot it bsod's on me and then reboots b4 I can read the screen...; as in immediately.. I put a secon copy of windows on a partition on the drive but I have a ton of software on the other partition that I dont want to lose and some I cant... I have taken ownership of the folders in the other partion to get my pictures and the like. But I cant use any of my programs ....

Been having a lot of BSOD recently. Every time I try to burn a disc, I come back to it and this has happened now with two different drives (just upgraded to a blu ray burner). The computer has also been locking up often within 15 minutes of starting up and requires a hard reset. I imagine if I left it be during those times, it'd ultimately result in another BSOD.

I'll try uploading the information as per instructions, but I manually wrote down the message BSOD...

"Stop: 0x0000000F4 (0x000000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA8010F95100, 0xFFFFFA8010F958E0, 0xFFFFF800037DD460)"

A:BSOD when using DVD drive

Welcome bonjourmate.

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump. You first search them manually in the default path,
C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump.

If that location is empty, Follow the tutorial:
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Wait for the next crash, and then post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Anyway, a stop 0xF4 is storage related. For it, what you are to do initially is:
Update your SSD's Firmware (not needed if you are not using a SSD)
Re-seat the sata and power. (for all drives including Optical and internal disks)
Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Let us know the results.

Hey Guys, need some help here also.

Here's the scenario. Last time when i use my dvd-drive, it didn't occured any BSOD, but later on i think around after few months, it start showing me BSOD sometimes when i'm using my dvd-drive.
Then i thought is the hardware failure, since the dvd-drive is quite old & slow already, somemore is an IDE drive.
Then i changed another new SATA dvd-drive, but still sometimes it still give me BSOD. I thought maybe is the power cable fault, then i switch another power cable, still the same. I can't find the root cause of this problem, please help.

Hi, im keep getting the BSOD when i use my cd drive to access a cd. I have had a look for the mini dump files in c:\windows\minidump and my computer doesnt seem to be writing any. I have even done a search for .mdmp files and have found a few old files but nothing that relates to anything recent. the error codes that i am getting are:

Since the recent November update I have been getting BSOD once or twice a day. What follows is the on screen notification:

Driver IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL(dxgnms1.sys)

What puzzles me most (not that I know much about this anyway) is that when I restart it is not the (C) Drive which has the OS which is scanned and repaired, it is the (D) Drive with apps / programs, docs and media. This has not happened before, is it unusual? Has it anything to do with the fact that I have just made full use of the new MOVE option to transfer apps to (D)? I understand that it likely to be a driver issue and thought drivers would be on (C)?

I had 'Magicdisc' installed and it was working fine until a few days ago.I started getting blue screens due to the file 'mcdbus.sys' so i tried uninstalling 'MagicDisc' (which wasnt easy) and got rid of it using a command line to uninstall it. I wasn't sure if it uninstalled completely so I used 'CCleaner' and deleted faulty registeries. Then I installed 'Daemon Tools Lite' as I have to have a virtual drive and during installation, as soon as it said 'setting up virtual drive' my system gave a blue screen, this time due to the file 'dtsoftbus01.sys' and so I uninstalled the Daemon tools lite after logging into safe mode.

I really need a virtual drive software, but so far I've figured out that as soon as I install a program that creates virtual drive, my system starts giving blue screens. The system works fine otherwise.

Please help !!

Hi all, I've been having this weird problem and this site looked like a good place to ask about it because of the support I've seen. So wooooo first post~!
Anyway, whenever I unplug one certain flash drive (a Kingston DataTraveller SE9) my laptop bluescreens with the error "SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED". I can't figure out why for the life of me! I did, however, figure out that the flash drive is recognized as a local disk and not a removable one. This issue only applies to my laptop, that's it; the drive works perfectly fine on any other computer. I can still read and write to it no problem. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

A:Unplugging Certain USB Drive Causes BSOD

Some USB flash drives act like a hard drive which Windows lists as local disk instead of removable. You will notice that when you delete anything on the USB drive labeled local the deleted items go to the recycle bin. On a USB flash drive labeled removable the items are not sent to the recycle bin.
 
Download USBdeview. Run the program Highlight any listing for Kingston DataTravler and press the red X to remove. Reboot the computer and attach the Kingston again. Do you get the error?

Hi all ,

I am not too sure if its a PSU issue where as being not enough or a Motherboard issue..... the reason i say motherboard issue is because when i was installing the new 3tb hard drive i had to take out one of my Radeon 7970 cards , in doing so i think i may of pulled out the plastic pci-e port of the board as i never pushed the release lever down enough , the port did seem to go back in ok. But after doing this my problems started to happen....but only when i have both cards in cross fire , single usage is fine , no crashes , but as soon as the second is put into crossfire mode i get crashes , The event viewer gives me a bugcheck code of 278 everytime...so i really dont know weather it is a power supply problem or a motherboard ( due to my carelessness ) below are my specs and the dump zip and perfmon zip.

Hi.

I've been having loads of PC problems recently and its getting me down. Just as I thought I had it stable I noticed this.

I keep getting Bugcode_USB_Driver blue screen. But it only seems to happen overnight when i'm not there to see if anything is causing it. But if its happening while the PC isn't really being used how on earth is it happening?

The only thing running is O&O Defrag. One of my external drives (1TB Seagate) is highly fragmented and it seems like it will take hours to complete, but it never manages to finish because while leaving it running I wake up to a BSOD. I manage to have it running a few hours a day but no BSOD occurs, just when I check it after a night of sleep!

Could this be the problem? My external drive is going dodgy?

I've tried uninstalling all usb drivers and changed the usb port its using. And just to eliminate things, a system overclock would not cause this right? Its not running too hot and has been stable for months before now.

This is incredibly frustrating and would like some advice and help.
Thanks

Hello all,I've got a problem.
Yesterday night,while I was sitting on my laptop,a BSOD appeared and the computer restarted.After the comp restarted,I could reach till the "Windows is Starting page" and then another BSOD and the comp again restarted and so on.

When I went to startup repair,there was no Operating system to repair.It told me to "Load Drivers".
Then I tried using my win7 cd and on startup when I booted it up,at the after the "Custom Install" page where you choose on which partition to install to,and even there,there were no partitions and it told me to "Load mass storage drivers".

I searched around a bit and found out that it is something to do with SATA harddrives and IDE's and Bios's.

Since then I've tried nearly everything but to no avail.
I am not a n00b and I've solved many problems myself but this time I'm at a total loss

I had Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

HP Pavilion dv6-3142se Entertainment Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)
THIS is my laptop,its been just over a month since I bought it.

1) My laptop doesnt have any option in the Bios about SATA and IDE's (hp's newer laptops have stopped giving that option i read somewhere)

2) I checked the Drivers on the hp site and downloaded the chipset (i think it might be useful) and intel storage driver. I even went to the Intel driver site to find something similar.I put all of those on a USB drive and extracted all those that could... Read more

A:BSOD and then cant recognize hard drive

Good news!
I installed Ubuntu on a portable drive and it picked up my HD!
as you can see its a Hitachi,not a Toshiba (sorry)

http://img600.imageshack.us/img600/4895/68253061.png
Now the thing is,I had 4 drives.
A Music
B Movies
C Windows 7
E Setups misc etc
The C drive was 169 gb and everything is in it.
But it seems like the A and B partitions have been added into E.
My E partition was around 50 gb,A was 70 and B was around 200.
All of those have been added up to give me 331 GB. The files from partition E are still there,but the files from A and B are not there.

Also see this
http://img508.imageshack.us/img508/8108/48364352.png
After going into this drive,you can see that now it shows only 50 gb (which was the size of the original E drive). The Music and Movies partition is missing/hidden.

My guess is that they still exist,but are hidden.
Heck,even in Windows 7 after doing a clean install,I could see my C and E drive but couldnt see my A and B ones.
So I went into Administrative tools and then into Disk Management and the partition was still there and I only had to assign a drive letter to them and then they appeared on My Computer.
I think its because by default you can only see the C,D,E,F drives and you have to 'unhide' or re-assign the other drive letters.
So any help about this :S?

Also now you must have seen the sata storage controller and hard drive model,so can someone point me to a driver please!?!

I was trying to remove a USB Thumb Drive, and that's when it crashed. Also, when it booted back up after the crash, it said there was a problem with my antivirus. My antivirus is working though. If this crash pertains to a driver, please note that I installed the latest Graphics Driver and it was really buggy. So I reverted back to my old Graphics driver. I have not had a problem in a while, except for the Windows Mail app. This is the first time it has crashed in a while.

XP x64 BSOD Writing to Mapped Drive? [SOLVED]

I've been tracking this problem down for months on end but can't seem to find a cause, let alone a resolution.

I'm running XP x64 on a 2-processor Dell Workstation with a few mapped drives. I've been getting lots of blue screens, often in clumps. I'll get 2 one Tuesday, be fine for a week, and then get 6 the next Tuesday.

The minidump files include a bunch of different bug check strings and codes and a variety of "caused by" drivers. The bug check codes include 0x1000007E, 0xC2, 0x9C, 0x50, 0x3B, and others. I've attached a .zip of the last 10 minidumps. By far, the most common "caused by" is ntoskrnl.exe.

The recurring theme about these crashes is that they all seem to happen when I'm writing files to a mapped drive. It's hardly deterministic too. I wrote a batch script that writes a small text file to any one of my network drives, sleeps for a half second, and does it again. Sometimes, the script will write 100 times before crashing. Sometimes, it get through 8 iterations. I should point out that this is caused by any network drive, and it makes no difference whether or not the server is running Linux or Windows.

I've tried replacing the network card in the PC, thinking perhaps there was something funky going on there, to no avail. I've also done multi-day passes (Friday evening to Monday morning a few times) with Memtest86 with no ... Read more

A:XP x64 BSOD Writing to Mapped Drive?

I read the minidumps in your first Zip file. Two were unreadable due to corruption. The other three are helpful in finding a cause for your issues.

One error is 0x0000007E: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
A system thread generated an exception which the error handler did not catch. There are numerous individual causes for this problem, including hardware incompatibility, a faulty device driver or system service, or some software issues.

The other two errors are 0x000000C2: BAD_POOL_CALLER
A kernel-mode process or driver incorrectly attempted to perform memory operations. Typically, a faulty driver or buggy software causes this.

All three cite the same driver as causing your issues: Prot6Flt.sys. It took some digging to find out what it is because there is almost nothing online concerning this driver but it belongs to your Panda security software.

Hello,
Background info:
I was surfing (IE 11?)the web to find a free stream of an nba game, clicked a link and had several screens flash up saying stuff needed to be updated, X'ed out of two, did alt f4 on one. As i was trying to terminate the popups, screen immediately tore apart, BSOD, and the machine rebooted by itself. Upon reboot, no boot drive was found according to the black screen at start up, this occurred several times, we quickly unplugged the ethernet cable and shut the computer down and unplugged the other hard drives in the computer.
With only the dvd drive and the c boot drive plugged in, I restarted the computer and I inserted Windows 7 Ultimate disk and was unable to repair anything but did manage to restore a previous restore point from around September 13, 2013. System will boot but is acting strange and looks like its stripped. Desktop icons are gone, black wall paper and Norton is missing. I have not plugged the other hard drives back in at this time, so I don't know if documents are missing or corrupt at this point.
I did renew Norton in April 2014, so maybe that has something to with it, since the restore point is before the new version of Norton.
At this point, I'm guessing doing the restore was a mistake.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Gary

How long have you been running Windows 7 on this motherboard? I believe that your hardware barely can support running Windows 7. Your BIOS is from 2009 which could be problematic.

Here are some of my suggestions:
Search your hardware parts on the Windows 7 Compatibility Center, and ensure that Microsoft has approved the product to be 7 ready.End with the Upgrade Advisor afterwards.

Though if you're fine in Safe Mode, it might not be the problem but it can't hurt.

Hello,

My Dell Dimension 8400 got the BSOD:
STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF8969528 , 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

I ordered a new hard drive to replace the original hard drive expecting that to resolve the problem.
I allowed the system to create a partition based on the entire space allowed and started installing windows XP.
Windows XP installation progressed for a bit then when it restarted the computer it went straight back to the same BSOD!!!. OUTRAGEOUS!!!

I did a hard drive diagnostic and the new drive (Drive 0) got a "Pass" The two CD drives (Drive 4 & Drive 5) both said "Diagnostics Not Supported"

I have left the SATA Operation to the system default (RAID Autodetect / AHCI). I tried switching the SATA Operation to (RAID Autodetect / ATA), saved and exited, but still got BSOD.
All other BIOS settings are default

Is the Boot Sequence important? Currently it says:
1.Onboard or USB Floppy Drive
2. Onboard SATA Hard Drive
3. Onboard IDE Hard Drive (not present)
4. Onboard or USB CD-ROM Drive
If I change the Boot Sequence to SATA Hard Drive #1 could that help?

I hope I can fix this and the Mother board is not broken.

Should I be testing/checking the memory cards?
How would I do a RAM test, or a CPU test?

Would it be useful to disconnect/reconnect the internal components to ensure the connections are proper?

Yesterday, after coming home from work, I noted that my computer had restarted. Thinking it was Windows Update, I jumped back into Windows. It took me almost 15 minutes to get into Windows, which is abnormal for my computer. In trying to diagnose that, it froze again, and the one thing I noted was that my hard drive didn't appear to be reading.

I decided to do some investigating, and came across the possibility based on the one time I was able to get into the event viewer was that it appeared that Windows thought there was an issue with my hard drive controller (error code 11? Windows isn't my strong point, hardware is, and I can't easily get back)

Running diagnostics on my hard drive, it came up with nothing, saying that the hard drive was fine (I used WD's LifeGuard tools). And after some time, the error seemed to go away, and I was able to go about normal activity. I did make a change though, telling Windows that if it BSOD'd, that I didn't want it to restart.

Through the night, it BSOD'd again, and does not give a process or file that is causing the problem.

The stop code is as follows.

*** STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x0000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA8010835060, 0xFFFFFA80108010835340, 0xfffff80003581510)

That crash primarily indicates hard disk problems. This could mean hard disk corruption, bad sectors, a failing hard disk, Windows files or registry corruption, viruses, or memory problems. In other words, it is not necessarily the hard disk itself causing the crashes, but the hard disk is a possible culprit. Let us know what you find when you replace the cable. Here are the steps I usually give for that crash:

I read some posts here about a similar problem but none answer my question. I was trying to partition my hard drive with disk manager in vista home premium. I partitioned 22gb and formatted it FAT32 then it started to ask me for drivers which i didn't have or know where to even get the drivers and vista wasn't able to find it, so i then restarted my computer then after i see that the partition that i made doesn't say it has been formatted it looks like it unformatted it self, I so restart again and i get the blue screen saying the error 0x0000007b. So the only way to fix it is to use the vista boot disk and use system restore then it works. Then i see the partitioned drive looks formatted and appears in My computer again and it asks me again to install drivers, like the first time i formatted it. For some reason the partitioned drive gets unformatted after i restart my computer which causes me to get a blue screen error. I hope it makes some sense. Please help!

Hello! I've searched in here, and found some good threads on the following, but none that ended badly, as mine has! Any help?

Dual Boot Win7 x64 beta
XP x32

After installing Win7 into a new partition, the OS started up fine from the new dual boot screen, but I didn't have access to my Win XP partition from within explorer. In disk management, I was able to add a letter to my WinXP volume (I took the next available "O") and it popped up in explorer no problem. However, after restarting, Win 7 begins to load, then BSODs way too fast to think about catching with camera. I got the option to run startup repair at the restart, and I did so. The conclusion there was that I had plugged in a device during the last session that was now causing problems. That is bogus, unless that device is my newly lettered partition. I read many a thread in here about re-lettering a partition that had lost its letter in the intall (usually the other OS volume in a dual-boot environment), but didn't see those posters then have issues upon restart.

I can boot into XP, although here now NONE of my drives have letters.

Any Help? I really was diggin' my win7 time, and really enjoyed taking advantage of all my RAM and x64 versions of CS4 and CAD.

Thanks.

I'm at my wit's end here.
So I've had a computer now, for about two years. I use it to do schoolwork, play tf2, post on a forum, nothing major.

But I swear, it's like whatever I use with the computer only has a short amount of life before failing.
I got the computer from a more savvy friend. He constructed it from a lot of spare parts, but I know he knew what he was doing, as he'd been working at a computer repair shop for multiple years at the time.
Only a few months after receiving the computer, I started having problems, used Google, and learned the problem was one of the RAM sticks had failed. I found the defective one, took it out, and thought nothing of it.

Since the two years have passed, I have had the power supply explode, installed a new fan since the computer ended up overheating, lost the use of a usb port, ended up losing usb devices any time I turned off the computer and left them attached, took out another ram stick, and now I'm getting hard disk problems.
Each time I started up my computer it's a crap shoot. When it's working, there's about a 1/4th of a chance it won't boot up, and I have to spend at least an hour getting it working again, by unplugging everything but the keyboard, or enabling bios settings, or using chkdsk.
Speaking of chkdsk, the damn thing is detecting tons of errors constantly. No matter how many times it fixes it, it comes up with new ones the next time.

Hello Plec, welcome to SF!

Looks like you have not been lucky with this system. No offence but it also looks like your friend that built it, was not that savvy... or should have told what the risks are in the way he apparently did the build. We know about Murphy's here but this sounds as a bit too much.

It is really hard to give you good advice on the info you gave. Your story is clear enough but we need detailed technical spec's of ALL components to be able to suggest anything....

Some advice offhand... if you yourself are not into computer electronics/parts... then don't add anything to it until you are sure of what you are doing....You wouldn't want a faulty PSU to burn your new HDD.

After physically cutting to power to the PC and turning it back on, it finds it fine again and boots without problems, .. until next time.

What i have done:
I have followed all the steps as provided in This article
I have checked the cables
Have done a memory test with windows memory diagnostics

What i haven't done:
upgraded firmware of the drive

Observations:
When trying to reinstall windows it list the none boot drive first. (no idea if this matter)

I'm running a 2 drive setup, one SSD for OS and certain games and programs, and a larger drive for storage, documents, picture, downloads and other big files.

I had pretty much the exact same issue with my old motherboard and CPU.

Specs
OCZ Agility3 120gb
WD Caviar Green 2tb
I7 3770 ivy
P8Z77-V LK
8gb Corsair vengeance
560 ti
Win7 64bit
Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Have you updated the firmware on your SSD to the latest version?

Regards,

If you swap in a drive with a pre-installed OS from a PC "with different hardware" the drivers etc will not match and you will likely get lots of error messages, if not a BSOD or failed boot. You need to fix the problem and or re-install the operating system.

I'm running RTM x64 and other than this one issue it runs perfect. I'm really liking it overall, great performance too. But this one issue really bothers me since I have lots of things on other drives. Basically if I add another hard drive it starts to boot, sits on the Windows logo screen for 30 secs or so then BSOD. It's not just one drive either, I tried it with 3 different drives. All of which work fine and I can put them in any other(non-Win 7) system and they work with no issues. I can shut down, connect a drive, boot into another OS and access what's on them but that's really a pain in the ass and shouldn't be necessary, I should be able to have 2 or 3 drives without an issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please copy the contents of your \Windows\Minidump folder to another location on your machine, zip them up, and upload the zip archive here. Analysis of those files may help to pinpoint the cause of the problem.

Hi all,
 
  I have this hard drive that has the OS on it, and it is blue screening and returning to boot options menu. it is running off a custom gigabyte socket 775  main board via sata cable. i hooked it up into another computer and it appears to be a fine disk, albeit partitioned. does that mean that the OS is licensed for another board only?  i have the speccy and SIW screen shots of it if that helps.
 
 is there a BIOS setting that is preventing it from loading?
 
 while i had it hooked up to the other computer, i did a chkdsk /r on it and it said it needed to be dismounted..
