Q: BSOD 0x0000001e Random whilst surfing/playing game. Dumps included

Hi everyone,
I'm new to the forum but I am having trouble since installing a new build and have had numerous BSODS. I have since discovered that the ram I was using was faulty and am in the process of RMAing it. Changing for old ram seemed to give better stability but I am still getting occasional BSOD. The latest was 0x0000001e (0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000). I have run Ccleaner previously to this and it seemed to help but 24hrs later this has happened. I cant seem to figure out what it is and would greatly appreciate if someone could tell me what might be causing this.

Thanks,
Gil

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello,


Code:
GVTDrv64.sys Tue Sep 5 02:10:02 2006 (44FD22CA)
This driver is related to the Gigabyte Easy Tune 6 tool. Which are known problems with windows 7. Also it dates back to 2006. Drivers before 2009 are generally known to cause problems, as well.

Either update the driver here: GIGABYTE - Support & Downloads - Utility - Motherboard or just remove it.


Code:
Unknown Device USB\VID_0000&PID_0000\5&1679B462&0&1 43
Would you possibly know what this device is?

In the dump file, it is showing a NTFS error.

Do the following:





Quote:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

After:
Disk Check


After please post back results.

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.

So I had this built in early August 2013, and since then have had a few Blue Screens of Death playing League of Legends, and sometimes when im not gaming.

In the last few days I have downloaded Day Z and when trying to play, every 15 minutes or so I will BSOD with the error 3B. The weirder thing is that every time it happens, my PC restarts and my brother's internet cuts out (he is on the other side of a wall). We have no idea why that happens and need help!
It BSOD'd 4 times playing Day Z yesterday, and then again tonight when playing Age of Empires HD, but with a different error code - 1E.

I would be very grateful if someone could point me in the right direction - I have tried googling but there doesn't seem to be much help for the particular error codes I am getting.

Hi all,

I've recently switched over from my old HDD to a shiny new SSD. It was a fresh windows install and I've installed all drivers for my gpu, mobo etc. fresh onto this. It seems now though that whenever I play a game I get a BSOD. I've had this happen so far whilst playing Skyrim, EVE online and Company of Heroes, and I haven't really loaded up any other games because there's not much fun if they're going to crash 10 mins in! The crashes occur anywhere between after 10 mins of play and after 1hr. I thought it was a temperature issue as Skyrim used to crash before I got the SSD, but seemed to work fine if I put my fan speeds up to ~90% in MSI Afterburner. After 10 mins of EVE online with the fan speeds set to 90% I got a crash the other day though. I've also tried uninstalling and re-installing my graphics drivers and still got a crash :/ I've also updated my BIOS and that hasn't fixed the problem, so I thought I'd post here and see if someone else can help me get to the bottom of this!

Hello, I have been having BSODs on my PC forever, and I decided to get to the bottom of it. It seems to be totally random (happens even when the PC is idle, when I am watching youtube or a movie, or even playing a game, even if it isnt tasking at all). Sometimes it cant even boot to Windows, but then without using repair/restore, it boots normally right after.
Also, I get a BSOD sometimes when I play a tasking video game (like dead space), involving a DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and ndis.sys.

A:random BSOD's with win32k.sys and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCPETION, win7 x64 dumps included

Please provide this information so we can help you out: http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ns-452654.html

Dumps 1-3 are STOP 0x3B errors (system service) in win32k.sys (a critical Windows component). As such, it's unlikely that win32k.sys is actually to blame. If it was to blame, it's likely that you'd have a lot of other problems. I'd suspect that it's more likely that a 3rd party service did something "bad" that caused win32k.sys to crash.

Dump 4 blames networking stuff - so the place to start is there. Uninstall your networking software (both wired and wireless if so equipped) and then install the latest version available for your OS from the manufacturer's website.

Meanwhile we'll be waiting on the information I requested to see if there's more details that'll help sort this out for you.

hello everyone,

just a little background on my pc, ive just recently built it, brand new parts are the cpu, mobo and ram. everything else (HD,casing,vid card etc) was reused.

anyway recently ive been playing mechwarrior online and it sometimes BSODs me while loading, either the menus or the game itself. Sometimes while surfing the net, but mostly while gaming. temps were all ok and im not OCing. I have latest drivers from Nvidia and intel and evga and asus installed.

Most of the time i opened up the dump file and i got the STOP bugcheck 7f (with the first param 08 double fault)
probably caused by : unknown image

Hi.

Installing and Using 2 antivirus programs in the same system,usually you dont have double protection. You have double the problems.

Remove avast from your system.
Remove avg from your system.
Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials with windows firewall enable.
You can also use this Good and Free system security combination.
If you had make any changes in windows using TuneUp Utilities,set everything back to default then uninstall TuneUp Utilities.
Generally TuneUp Utilities they dont "tuneup" the system,they mess up the system.
Windows 7 does not need any "external" help.
Update software\driver for your Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter - Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card.

Hey guys, I've been fighting with an issue my computer's been having pretty much ever since I built it, with everything from bad ram to outdated drivers, I've pretty much seen it all. I don't use my computer every day, but I will usually see a blue screen when I do.
What's most confusing to me is that when I play graphically intense games like Crysis or Battlefield, my computer performs fine, but while watching videos or playing League of Legends, I'll often get a blue screen.
Anyway, the error that I most often see nowadays is 0x0000001e followed by four phrases of 0x0000000000000000... I've received blue screens with the error codes of something like DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, but updating my drivers seems to have fixed that one.
I'm gonna upload the DM Log file as requested by the guidelines, but I do have pictures too, if they're helpful.
Any help is appreciated guys, thanks!

hello, marmiteistasty. I will try to help you with your issues. I see you have filled out your System Specs, could ZI get you to add a few more details please. I would like to know Manufacturer and brand of all components. Sometimes it is necessary for us to look up components, so the details are important, like what CPU cooler and PSU do you have.

When you installed Windows did you use the driver installation disk or did you download them from the Motherboard Manufacturer's Web sit (Motherboards - MAXIMUS VI HERO - ASUS}? The web site is always more current than the driver disk.

You only had one dump file in the files you uploaded. Would you please ensure your computer is configured for Small Memory Dumps Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
The dump files list 2 issues.

Heya all

I have a bit of a problem where I'm not sure whether it's driver related or whether something is failing on my computer. My husband seems to think it's driver related but although I can build my own computers when it comes to things like this I'm completely useless!

First off I can't remember whether I had this issue on my previous set when I first installed Windows 7 or whether it's been just when I've upgraded my computer. I just can't recall the first time I started having this problem.

The first thing I noticed was whenever I exited playing a game my screen would go black, with monitor message saying no video output, and the green power button on my monitor would go orange and I would have turn off and then switch my monitor back on for the screen to come back up. Then I noticed that it started doing it randomly when my computer was idle. Again I would turn my monitor off and then back on again to get the screen back up. During these times when this has happened I've never had to reset my computer. I've recently updated my graphics drivers and the issue seems to be a little more often than not now and my husband thinks it's the graphics drivers that's causing it. I've done a search on the internet and I've come across similar problems but requires a restart, which could mean monitor failure or graphics card failure so I'm unsure as to whether it is driver related.

The second issue that I've been having is randomly when I play LOTRO EU client I've been having ... Read more

Hi guys and gals, this is my first post. I hope I have posted in the right thread, but not sure if this is a gaming issue or Windows issue.

I am at my wits' end and hope someone can help me. This is a new pc build using various parts we have accumulated. When using Internet Explorer I get app crashes. I have been playing DC Universe Online and get random app crash, display drivers stop responding, apphangB1, I also lose monitor signal. Here is a list of fixes we have tried already:

We have disabled internet explorer add ons and even tried disabling IE completely, to no avail
We have swapped out the 5770 for an 8800 GTX that we know works, same problem
We have the latest BIOS/drivers
We have run SpeedFan, CPU temp 41C
We have run Memtest for both sticks of RAM at the same time in slots 1 and 3 and there was an error, so we tried to isolate the bad RAM by testing invidivual sticks in slot 3 - no errors on either stick? therefore, we put the sticks in slots 3 and 4, assuming there may be a problem with slot 1 - worked ok for a couple of hours, then game crashes and black screen with sound requiring reboot. Monitor is fine, as it works on my BF's pc with no problems.
We have tried a couple of installs of Windows 7
We have run chkdsk - no errors
The BIOS is running on default, nothing overclocked - we have used the correct timings for the RAM and autotimed them, same problem

I was playing Burnout when the computer crashed and the blue screen error came up. Since then when I turn the computer on all the fans turn on, HDD activity light flashes but nothing appears on the monitor.I can't boot in to safe-mode or enter the bios settings. I've tried using the 8800gt and the onboard gfx (950 gma) but nothing appears. I read that taking the ram out and then turning it on the mobo should beep..but it didn't however it did beep when I didn't plug the cable in to the 8800gt.

A:Computer had a bsod whilst playing a game..now computer won't boot.

No beep without ram installed does not look good. Here is some basic troubleshooting you can do.

1 Open the case and pull the pw connectors from ALL drives; both hd and optical.
2 Remove all add-in cards except the video card
3 Disconnect any usb type device; ie hub, printer, scanner, etc.
4 Clear cmos with the clear jumper for a min of 20~30seconds. Replace jumper to keep position.
5 Now attempt a pw ON of the system and see if it will post.

If it does post in the above config, then shutdown and add devices one at a time until you find the problem. If it does not post, then start replacing parts with known good units.

FWIW I would start with the pw supply as the first part replaced.

Hi there, I just got a BSOD out of nowhere whilst sending an email on Chrome (Outlook).

I had some BSOD problems a while back, which was due to a faulty RAM stick, which has now been fixed (Corsair sent me a new pair as they were under lifetime warranty).

So the first thing I did was run MemTest 86, and inital results make it seem completely fine, so the RAM's not the issue here.

I've attached a pic of the BSOD and a BSOD log dump.

I recently took my PC apart and cleaned it out of dust (it gets very dusty in my room and a 2400RPM intake fan doesn't help). It worked fine at first, then yesterday I found that my PC crashes when a 3D game is running.

It first happened on Multi Theft Auto San Andreas when I was going to test out a new server. I was playing for a matter of a minute before my pair of screens went blank and the familiar repetitive sound when a PC crashes started blaring at me. I restarted my PC using the reset button, as keys were unresponsive.

It booted up without any problems and it loaded up Opera fine. I can use it extensively for hours running normal things such as internet browsers and windowed programs, but as soon as anything 3D is loaded my PC crashes.

Another instance was when I was taking off in FSX, my PC crashed with the same symptoms as the MTA incident.

Its been happening on all of my games that are full 3D, TES:V Skyrim, GTA IV, GTA VC, GTA SA, MTA SA, TF2 and FSX.

Anyone know whats up?

I'm gonna run a system restore and see if it works. I've also got a spare EN7300GE lying around so I can substitute my 285 for that to check if its the graphics card.

CPU: Intel Core i7 2600 3.4GHz

Hello TSF, I've been running into a few problems that some of you may have insight into...

My computer has been throwing blue screens at me left and right recently. Every one of them has been an IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error, and my crash dumps are reporting problems ranging from ntsokrnl.sys, nvatabus.sys, win32k.sys, ha20x2k.sys, and a few others I don't recall off the top of my head. When this started happening a few weeks ago, it was only in a certain game I was playing at the time. I haven't played it at all for almost two weeks now, yet the frequency of the blue screens has increased to the point of the computer restarting almost completely at random while I'm doing nothing more than loading songs onto my MP3 player or even surfing the web. I got up this morning to find that the system had blue screened overnight with no activity on it at all. I'm honestly not sure if it's a driver problem as I've been lead to believe in the past, or if my hardware is starting to give out on me somewhere.

Here's my system configuration:
AMD64 4000+, no OC
1GB PC3200, also no OC
250gb HDD
ATI X800GTO
Enermax 535W PSU

After playing any game my computer will blue screen randomly and it seems like my graphics driver is crashing. I've been updating my nvidia driver every time a new one comes out and it's the same problem I've done clean installations and it's the same thing everytime so I don't know if my nvidia driver is actually crashing or if something is causing it to or whatever I seriously don't know. Also, I've been having blue screens with blue screen view saying it was the ntoskrnl.exe, but just a few days ago I've been having blue screens with nwifi.sys being the cause instead. I have been thinking that ntoskrnl.exe was being caused by left over virtual drives from daemon tools, but I didn't find out how to completely get rid of them until yesterday, and the blue screen with nwifi.sys being the cause started 5/28. I'm not sure if I fixed ntoskrnl.exe or now if I have to problems. Sorry I was just explaining everything that has happened in the past since the other forums I usually ask for help hasn't responded for a week so I thought I should give my background here since it seems people reply fast.

All crashes related to your graphics card and/or its drivers. There are special steps that must be used to uninstall/re-install NVIDIA graphics card drivers. You should also check your DirectX installation.

DirectX comes installed with Windows, so this may indicate Windows corruption. It may also be that you have corrupted drivers or a graphics card hardware problem.
If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Check Windows for corruption. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.
Follow the steps for Diagnosing basic problems with DirectX. To re-install your display card drivers as outlined in the DirectX link, use the following steps.
Download the drivers you want for your display card(s)
Click Start Menu
Click Control Panel
Click Uninstall a program
For NVIDIA:Uninstall the NVIDIA Graphics Driver (this should uninstall all NVIDIA software and drivers)
Restart your computer
Make sure NVIDIA 3D Vision Driver, NVIDIA 3D Vision Video Player, NVIDIA HD Audio Driver, and NVIDIA PhysX System Software are not still listed under Uninstall a program through Control Panel

If you have any newer crashes after the new driver update than we'll need those as well, otherwise unless all these crashes (all dated today) are from after the update (which is odd seeing it's 2009), then it may be that the new drivers haven't been successfully installed.

I'm having problems with the graphics when playing the game Theme Hospital. I used to play this on my Win98 computer years ago, but have recently bought a version that says "Windows Vista Compatible" on the front for my Vista PC. It runs ok, but the graphics are messed up. All the colors are wrong and it looks really strange. I tried installing the latest drivers for NVidia and that didn't help.

Does anybody know what I can do to fix this? I have the feeling there is a simple solution, but just don't know what it is
I haven't played theme hospital for years and was really looking forward to playing it when I saw the Vista version in the store

I'm fighting a losing battle against bluescreens and random program and games CTDs several times a day.
I've run a memtest, and that gave me no errors. I've updated and rolled back various drivers alot of times with no result. I've been googling these bluescreens online for days, with no definate solution being found.

The latest BSOD I had was, I believe, related to my network adapter? Had the newest version installed, since I have had this BSOD before, but I removed it and reinstalled it, so it remains to see how long it will take until the next bluescreen.

I've read anything I can out of the various diagnostic files, and being an amateur at these things, I hope someone here can read some actual solutions out of them. Now I can't play ARMA II, Total War Napoleon or Men of War Assault Squad as they will all eitehr CTD, or cause a BSOD.

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

Basically I am getting this super annoying problem that only started to occur recently , possibly related to updates but I'm not sure.

What happens is that say I'm playing music or watching a video (not necessary , just example) the PC will sort of stutter / freeze and loop the sound into a glitch kind of noise for a few seconds, this might happen a couple times over a 5 second period , and then stop, It might happen again 20 minutes later or whatever. There's loads on the net about it from other people but no definitive answer. I have re-installed graphics drivers and tried a few different versions etc. The other day the PC actually crashed, no BSOD just rebooted with no warning at all and I think I got some crash dumps if anyone can analyse them.

Any help majorly appreciated .

Thanks

Hello and welcome.

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

Hello, I've had BSOD happening at random times for the past 9 months. At first I thought it was a cpu problem, and stopped most of my non-necessary startup programs. Recently, this has started happening at random times, usually a few hours after the computer has been on. Tried cleaning my fans and reseating, opened ventilation to make sure it wasn't overheating. I honestly have no clue what to do at this point, can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

I can't narrow down any one reason why this is happening it seems to be at random. Attached is my sf tool zip.

Any help appreciated.

You are having errors in your network, the driver responbile is netio.sys which is the Windows network Input Ouput subsystem. It basically handles all Input and output requests for your network.
That isn't the root cause though, to find the cause we should enable driver verifier.

I have been having random crashes / restarts on my computer for the entire duration that I have had my windows 7 installed, before this I used windows xp which was on the same hard drive. I thought I managed to fix the issue but it happened again today and once yesterday as well.

What happens:
-Playing random game or browsing internet
-crash for no reason (Doesn't always BSOD)
-computer restarts says windows did not shut down cleanly etc..
-start up what I was doing again
-no crash

Search and Destroy along with Malwarebytes says that I am clean along with my AVG
My dump settings are properly configured to produce dump files, although when this happens I do not see one being produced

My Windows 7 computer:
- x64 bit
- not the original OS
- retail version
- What is the age of system (hardware)? - 3/4 years at most
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) 1/2 years

Let me know if you need anymore information I will be checking back in this thread every hour until I get the issue solved - Thank you ahead of time.

EDIT: I was looking through some other threads and managed to actually get some dump files and I reattached the information

No dmp's in upload please try this method

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.

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:

* 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"... Read more
