BSOD occuring many times a day - has been intermittent for months

Q: BSOD occuring many times a day - has been intermittent for months

Hi all

Any help that can be provided would be much appreciated. I have had BSOD numerous times today and getting some different error messages. Doesn't seem to be a particular time, or when using a particular application that I get it. Has been happening on and off for months.

Please find attached SF diagnostics tool output.

Many thanks in advance.


Preferred Solution: BSOD occuring many times a day - has been intermittent for months

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Good day!

I've been having semi regular BSOD for months now, there is some variety in the messages, some are generic, some have stop errors, some IRQ... Weird intervals, my computer can be up for 24 hours no issues and then for no apparent reason i can't keep it on more than 5 minutes without getting a BSOD.

I've attached the latest minidump that occured tonight, there was another crash after but it wasn't able to generate a minidump.

I'd appreciate any help that can be offered.

I should also mention this occurs with latest video card drivers, 2 separate video cards + on-board; This is a home built system; ram tested, 300GB hdd with OS, 1.5TB HDD in 2 partitions (trying the hotfix in the sticky right now).

HP printer drivers/software looks to be causing some trouble. That or your super outdated Nvidia chipset drivers (2009). Please go to the Compaq website and see if you can't find any updates for your motherboard/chipset drivers as well as BIOS. In addition, you'll want to update your HP drivers and software as well.

I noticed this is causing commotion because you're using a parallel port to hook up to your printer instead of a USB. Are you not able to hook up via USB? There's nothing entirely wrong with parallel, but it's quickly being phased out of consumer market and there's more and more support for the USB side. If you can switch to USB connection that might be preferable.

Just so you know, this diagnosis is only partial. I cannot ascertain exact cause unless you turn on Driver Verifier, or provide a kernel dump (MEMORY.DMP in Windows directory). If you choose to turn on DV, do not select the following checks: Force Pending I/O Requests, IRP Logging, and Low Resource Sim. Select all other checks. Make sure to restart system after you finish setup. If you experience a boot loop afterwards, go into Safe Mode by pressing F8 prior to Windows logo and disable DV there. Provide us any new crashdumps.

Hi, good day mate.

it happens to me very random at first i just ignored it i just thought it was just a glitch from a driver i've installed, but since i have already updated latest drivers for my hardware i believed that it wont occur again, but it still happened to many times now and i'm so worried that may HD would give up soon. i have checked event viewer and i was shocked at what i saw it happened so many times and the errors were from different sources that i could not understand. Pls help. and thanks in advance.

Here's what I've done over those 6 months:
Updated all drivers, tested for overheating, re-installed windows 7 Pro over the top of prior install. Cleared out all ATI drivers and reinstalled. Tried everything I could think of. I am not sure how best to use the Dump files to solve the problem, but am pretty sure I still have an ATI card issue. Tried going back to older drivers to no avail.

Have used the following tools to try to resolve this: BlueScreenView, Driver Reviver, Driver Sweeper, MS FixIt, and Driver Agent.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Hi there,

I have an issue where I get BSODs that seem to happen 1-3 times in a day or two, then stops for a bit, just today and yesterday I had 1 BSOD each, previous to that there was a big gap between the previous ones. I should have posted earlier, but I stop seeing the crashes and think the problem is gone... poor judgement. The last 2 times have happened while playing/watching League of Legends games (previous to these times, it had never crashed during LoL though, so that's new). I have also played numerous games without issue before then and after.

Files attached, thank you.

A:BSOD occuring at seemingly random times (but often close together)

Looks like a bad driver, identity unknown. Use driver verifier to help us determine the cause
Driver Verifier
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers... Read more

Attached is the dump/logs as per the posting instructions.

I've just disabled automatic restart so im unsure what the actual error is, but it happens frequently, several times a week.

Another oddity is that it always goes directly to bios after restarting. I have it set to halt on error and force F1 to continue, yet it always jumps straight to bios on reboot. Its a ASUS VII Maximus mobo updated to the latest bios.

Thanks for any and all advice!

Hello and happy Friday to you. My computer is getting a BSOD 1-2 times a day. The BCCode is 1e. Also, my IE10 is crashing on random web pages. It does not seem to be the same page every time and sometimes it crashes as soon as I launch it. This has been occurring for 1 week. No new hardware has been installed.

Dell XPS PC was extremely stable until may of this year which is when I started getting BSODs. About 1 year prior to this I started experiencing very slow performance; startup and logon would average between 6 to 7 minutes. So, in May of this year, I added more memory, increased from 8GB to 16GB, and I added an additional internal hard drive and moved most of my media files to it, so the original hard drive contains only windows, software and my document files. I also, removed Norton Internet Security and replaced with Windows Security Essential. When I started experiencing BSODs I ran mem86tst, but it did not turn up any problems. Also, I ran Tweakbit PCcleaner which cleaned up my registry. I also ran Tweakbit Driver updater which recommend a bunch of driver updates, but I was reluctant to make that many changes so I updated only my graphics card.

Usual causes: Device driver, memory, kernel

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Guide to using Memtest86+ - Geeks to Go Forums

The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
If this RAM stick has errors repeat ... Read more

A:BSOD now occuring 3+ times daily - computer illiterature requires help

I'm not a BSOD expert and our experts are very busy handling a lot of crash problems. Until one shows up you could try running some basic things to see if they help. I'd start out with a system file checker scan. This scan will look for and attempt to replace incorrect, corrupted, changed/modified, or damaged versions of your system files with the correct versions if possible. Run the scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You could also check your hard drive to see if it has any issues like bad sectors (where things like your operating system, documents, etc reside.)

Disk Check

And don't overlook some common issues like an overheating computer. Make sure you have good ventilation around it, vents are free of dust, etc. A free utility called Speccy is available for download. It can provide real-time monitoring of temps for the hard drive, graphics card, and the processor. And don't forget to run a full security scan with your resident anti-malware. It wouldn't hurt to get a "second opinion" by running the free, and highly recommended, Malwarebytes.

Speccy - System Information - Free Download


And you could also go through this trobleshooting checklist prepared by one of the Forum experts. It's fairly time consuming but has helped many people isolate specific issues.

Hello Everyone,

I hope you can help me out. I have been getting BSOD pretty randomly over the last few months. I finally took the time to try and figure out what is going on but whatever it is, is beyond my abilities.

This is the information i get when my computer restarts:

Problem signature
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.
Locale ID: 4105

Extra information about the problem
BCCode: 1000007e

Server information: 067e55e5-b466-4309-9095-4fcefee18ea9

The BSOD occurs even when my computer is idle, but seem to happen more frequently when I am playing a video game or watching a movie. It is does seem to be memory related (or at least I do not believe so) and I have used memtest to go through both sticks individually for about 10 passes each. Memtest did not report any errors.

I hope someone can help me out on this. If there is any more information I can provide please let me know.

Thank you

Can anybody help ? I have had no problems with my system for a long time, now, but suddenly, I have had 5 BSOD crashes in the last 4 days, 2 today, and I can't afford this as I have work to do !!!

I've cut & pasted the data from WINDBG into an Excel sheet, with the 5 crash dumps alongside each other, as I wanted to see if they were all the same, but it looks like the first 3 are the same, but the next 2 are different !!!

However, all 5 of them say "IMAGE_NAME: usbohci.sys", 4 of them say "PROCESS_NAME: ekrn.exe" & one says "PROCESS_NAME: System" (this was the 4th dump and thinking about it, it actually wasn't a BSOD, I had to restart the system manually as it locked up, so that may be a red-herring !!).

Can anybody tell me if I have a single problem & if so what it is ? If I have multiple problems, gulp, I hope not, but any help would be appreciated ...

I have attached the Excel file and 4 of the DMP files (I left out the 1st one as the 2nd & 3rd are almost identical & I was only allowed to upload 5 files) ...

Cheers & thanks in advance ...

A:BSOD 5 times in the last 4 days after none for months

All four errors point to the Windows USB driver usbohci.sys as the cause of your crashes. However, Window OS drivers are usually too general to be of much help. They more often point out that there is a problem rather than being the problem itself.

In the mix of all four was the Daemon Tools 4.0 driver sptd.sys as being unable to load. This driver a) loads at start-up and b) have given may, many people issues. Try either updating this software or uninstall it.

Hey guys, I was also having the same problem just today. I was watching youtube, fell asleep on my bed, wake up 20 minutes later and my computer was put to sleep. Not sure if the computer got hot during sleep time but it ended up with a blue screen of death.

An attempt was made to write to read only memory blue screen.

I've had bsod's a lot during these past few months and it just happened so suddenly. I don't know how to fix it Happens quite often, it's either a BSOD or my computer COMPLETELY freezes, I don't hear any sound AND I can't even move my mouse, make any keyboard gestures etc. It's just completely frozen, so I don't know what's wrong with my computer I've uninstalled recent programs, basically only have games installed as well as the normal microsoft programs and necessities. Help!

I've been using Ccleaner to remove my registry and clean my computer, so I don't know where the other dumps are, but the BSOD happened again and so I thought of looking it up and asking someone who knows what's going on so hopefully someone can help! Any help would be appreciated!

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000be (0xfffff96000323ad8, 0x8f400001c8ebf021, 0xfffff88009d92610, 0x000000000000000b). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 020214-15490-01.

A:BSOD - many times in recent months

Hi Simonpoo.

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.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If it does not show any error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.


If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Hi -

Probable issues with RAM are a likely cause.

Run memtest86+ - http://www.techsupportforum.com/2863029-post5.html

Before you run memtest86+. . . .

- remove Daemon Tools/ Alcohol 120

- Run the Driver Verifier -- http://www.sysnative.com/0x1/Driver_Verifier.htm

I see several old drivers in the dumps. If BSODs are software related, D/V can help find the culprit.

Regards. . .

Ever since I built this PC I've had BSODs every so often. I've not been able to trace them to any particular source, but lately they seem to be getting a lot more frequent and I am getting fed up, so I figured I would try asking here.

I've used the SF Diagnostic Tool to gather the requested information and attach it to this thread.

The most recent one seems to suggest a problem with the CPU. It's been suggested to me that my CPU might need a microcode update - I installed SiSoft Sandra Lite which is able to check the CPU microcode level and indeed it does suggest it isn't on the latest version, but as far as I can tell there is no procedure for manually updating microcode, you just have to wait and hope it comes down through Windows Update or something.

Can anyone help?

A:Intermittent Internet Issues with Cogeco, up to 72 hour Disconnects - Past 16 Months

This is cable service, right?

First--slightly off topic--the only phone in a household should not be via cable company unless the phone is only a luxury. I know that my cable company even advised my neighbor to not switch to them from a landline unless he had a cell phone.

Sounds like a problem somewhere between the place where her service branches off from the main coax cable and the modem. Maybe a loose connection; maybe a defective component; maybe a frayed cable that sometimes contacts something it shouldn't.

- Technicians who have come out during a downtime have stated 'signals are all over the place, no consistent measure'

- Technicians have stated that they are surprised the connection is up because 'your signals are in flux 10-50 dB on every stream and signal'Click to expand...

And those technicians didn't start working backward to find the source of the fault???

If the service is similar to mine outside the residence her cable connects to the company's cable and that junction should be grounded. Carefully check that connection for tightness and for absence of corrosion or rust. Clean it if necessary and protect it if that seems to be needed. Unless that connection is the source of the problem I think that it is up to the technicians to trace the problem back to the source.

A:Intermittent High Ping Times-cox Hsi

I thought I would post the solution to my problem that I finally discovered today.

The reason for the sometimes low/sometimes high ping times was Utorrent!

If it was on and I was a "Seeder" then that would slow my connection drastically.

If it was off or I wasn't being used as a "Seeder" then it was fast.

I now leave Utorrent OFF unless I am downloading something or at night when I am not using the I'net.

Hi yupp8 and Welcome to the Forum!

Your Graphics Card is mentioned once and its driver, atikmdag, was mentioned as the cause in the majority of your other .dmp files.

Many people are having issues with the latest Catalyst, 10.12. See this thread for issues regarding 10.12. It may be advisable to install one of the Previous Catalyst Versions.

Be sure to run Driver Sweeper in safe mode to clear Catalyst remnants before installing your "new" Catalyst drivers.

Update these older drivers before changing your Catayst drivers:

This sptd.sys Sun Oct 11 21:55:14 2009 driver is notorious for causing BSOD's with Windows 7. It's used by Daemon Tools / Alcohol 120% which will have to be uninstalled.

Use the correct uninstaller in Safe Mode for your set up to remove the sptd driver: Duplex Secure 32bit Duplex Secure 64bit

Make sure to select uninstall!

Hi. i have a re-occuring bsod as mentioned in the title.
This bsod usually occurs in the early hours of the morning while my pc is idle.

The bsod does not reference any drivers or dll's so i am at a loss and have come to you.

this has happened many times and each time it has not clearly referenced a driver and sometimes not even a error message just the error code...

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit - Original OS
Full Retail
System is 1-2 years old some parts are brand new; Gtx 260 graphics, x243H monitor. but all other components are 1-2 years old.
This install of my OS has been instaleld for roughly 2-3 months following another computer problem ( old HDD had a mechanical fault and was swapped for a new HDD and system reinstalled)
My CPU is a Q9400 core 2 quad
Video card is an GTX260 OC
Asus Striker Formula 2 - Drivers fully updated (to best of my knowledge and off of asus website)
Coolermaster M850W Modular power supply

Any help would be appreciated as i have little to no experience debugging painful BSOD's.

Most recently installed programs are. Hard Ware Monitor and the G11 driver and utility software.

I am wondering if it is a faulty gpu or psu or just outdated drivers. So I have attached the dump files and the performance review. Please help if you can.

A:Re-Occuring BSOD's

PERFMON indicates that your wireless USB device is disabled. If this is deliberate, please uninstall the software for the device and then physically remove the device from the system. In particular, using Vista drivers with these devices is known to cause BSOD's.

6 memory dumps in 4 days (20 to 23 Apr 2011)
5 different BSOD error codes
4 different causes blamed
This appears to be the start of a pattern indicating a hardware problem - but it can also indicate other issues such as compatibility or corrupt/outdated drivers (or even Windows issues). We'll start with the drivers as they're the easiest/quickest thing to do.

Once we are finished troubleshooting/fixing your issues - please update all drivers from the manufacturer's website. Then visit Windows Updates...Important Updates - and download/install Service Pack 1

MSI Afterburner has known issues with Win7 (older versions will cause BSOD's). Please uninstall this program while we're troubleshooting.

- Create a System Restore Point prior to doing any of this. DO NOT mess with the drivers themselves - leave the Windows\System32\drivers directory alone unless we specifically direct you to it!
- Please update these drivers from the device manufacturer's website - or uninstall them from your system. Reference links are included below.

Hi Jesture.

Your system specs says:

Memory 16 GB, 4 x 4GB 1333
But your system says ....

Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 6.00 GB
It is 3x2 GB Micron RAM. Have you changed the RAM? Was there any adequate reason?

The versatility of the bugcheck codes and probable causes are giving a notion to RAM problem.

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.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

I have a home built w7 Home Premium box we use almost exclusively for Windows Media Center. I started getting bsod's about a month ago and before that got distorted *pinkish* video on restart or bootup at times.

Tried using msconfig and changed settings and thought I had it but it resumed the pink screens (sometimes garbled colors i.e. squares and other shapes) so I bought a new video PCIe card, an XFX R6700. Thought this had it but it resumed the bsod's and sometimes graphic issues.

Saved our pics and such and did a clean install.

I've been having BSODs occuring randomly for the past few days now, from opening a page or loading a game, the BSOD could happen- I don't think there's also an interval between each BSOD, also, I don't hear any beeping and such created by the CPU, but I've never managed to get a proper look at the Screen to know what happened (It would immediately restart my pc)

Sorry to trouble you guys by this, I don't really have much(or any) experience in trouble shooting, but I attached a zip file of the folder I got from the diagnostics tool. Thank you for your help in advance.

Bugcheck 18 is usually caused by a poorly written or otherwise faulty driver. In the last last case, it may be your ATI Radeon drivers. Always download drivers from the manufacturer's site. Don't rely on third-party support for critical drivers. Also, make sure you have the latest version of Firefox and run full malware scan.

You didn't include valuable additional information in your zip file so further diagnostics may not be offered until the complete file set is provided. Good luck.

A:BSOD occuring once or twice a week

Checking this dumps quickly I think BSOD might be cause by some drivers.
Did you update all of your drivers or did BSOD started occurring after you update some drivers?
I suggest you to update all of your drivers or to re-roll to older driver if BSOD started happening after the update.

Hello everyone!

Over the last couple of weeks I have been experiencing random BSOD's. They seem to occur when I have a game running, but that could also be because I almost always have a game running when my computer is on. I can't seem to find the cause of the problem. Do you guys mayby know where the BSOD's are coming from?
Here is the Windows 7 Problem signature:

Hi all,

I have been using a SSD drive as my OS drive for the last year or so. During that time I have experienced random BSOD's that appear to occur literally at random. The BSOD's have occured in the midst of games, whilst surfing the web (using Google Chrome) and even when idling overnight (BOINC app running as screensaver)

I have only had 1 or 2 chances to see it happen in front of my eyes but the BSOD screen usually flashes by so quickly that I can't catch the error code. As such, I'd like your assistance in trying to figure out what the heck is going wrong with my computer.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Add-on Information:

Another problem noted is that after the BSOD occurs, the bios is unable to detect and load the OS from the SSD drive. This is resolved by performing a complete shutdown of the system. Any rebooting or Ctrl+Alt+Del will only result in a 'Boot Manager Not Found' error.

A:BSOD occuring at random

Hiyya and welcome Wolfgang I am NO expert mate but if you can remember when those BSOD's occurred run back in the Event Viewer and truck through the events around that time or day it might pop up a reference to it / them.

To get Event Viewer > Start type "event" (without quotation marks) - it should pop up a blue tab at the top of the start list right click then run as administrator.

Click Custom Views > Administrative Events and trawl down the listings.

Sorry should have said any you find double click on that error and it should open up to give the details.

Over the last month or so my Compaq Presario v6000 must have crashed about 20+ times with a blue screen error momentarily showing before shutting down and restarting.

I have no recollection of changing anything major with the settings of the laptop, I have downloaded all recent updates and it appears to happen at random times (ie, not when opening certain programs).

Could it be an overheating problem?

My laptop is on for 12+ hours at a time and does get very hot and loud, but this has not changed over the last 4/5 years and had no problem with it then.

Is it the motherboard, hard drives, just a problem with some programs?

Any help appreciated

A:BSOD Constantly occuring...

Hi Palmer1989,

When did you notice the BSOD error? Does it happen when the computer is on idle or when you have a program open? If you haven't tried this yet, try getting your hands on a compress air can and blow it on the vents of the laptop and see if the problem disappears.

Also it would be good to test the hard-drive and see if if the HD is failing. Try going to the laptop manufacturer's website and download the HD diagnostics utility. If you are confident in opening up your laptop, you can open up your laptop computer as well, take a look at the HD brand and download the HD diagnostics utility from the HD manufacturer's website. Good luck and hope your get this problem resolved.

A:Frequently Occuring BSOD :@

Hello ruchan.
From your crash dump I am seeing some evidence of HDD/ filesystem corruption.
Update your SSD's Firmware (skip it, if it is not a SSD)
Reseat the sata and power.
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.
Uninstall Daemon Tools. It is a frequent crash causer there.

And, you need to install Service Pack 1.

Version 6.1.7600 Build 7600
Let us know the situation when you are done.
