BSOD whilst playing various games. Also happens when not playing games

Q: BSOD whilst playing various games. Also happens when not playing games

Hello all,

I've been having a few problems with my laptop since I bought it. The problem mainly occurs when I'm playing a game (usually xcom: enemy unknown or deus ex HR at the moment) but has occurred when I'm browsing the internet (albeit far less often). The BSODs appear to be random but I'm using a blue tooth mouse and have noticed the BSOD will usually happened if I'm using it. I've also noticed that my laptop screen with black out for a split second on games that are quite graphics intensive for my system.

Its been frustrating me a lot so I reinstalled and fully updated windows 7. The GPU drivers are all up to date also.

I've attached the SF file that is required and would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks for your time

Hey guys. So for the past few months whenever i play any games i eventually get BSOD.. sometimes 5 minutes in.. sometimes an hour in. I've downloaded blue screen viewer and got a couple of screenshots of a couple of different bsod's.. these 2 seem to be the only ones that come up. I tried running a ram tester and that came back with no errors.. Just wondering if anyone can decipher this for me.
Furthermore.. i don't know if this is related or not but if i leave my computer on for say a day or so, everything starts to lag.. videos start to stutter and there is just lag in general in everything i do.. once i restart it all comes good... for a while but then starts up again. I tried disabling every non essential startup program but it still does it.
Thanks guys!
Also.. i am trying to add the dump files but can't figure out how to gain permission to do so...

Windows 7 . .- x64- the original installed OS on the system- an OEM- Bought in September 2010- The OS is the original installed and has not been re-installed

I get a blue screen of death whilst playing the sims. It appears after a while and so I thought it was video card related but reinstalling the video card and updating the directx version has done nothing.
The OS has been unotuched on the laptop since it was bought in September and there hasn't been any problems with it other than this.
Any help would be much appreciated

Hi,

This is my first post here and after looking around for a while I'm still having problems.

I have read the Posting Instructions and used the SF Diagnostic Tool, results included.
I'm not sure if that includes all my system information, but if anything is missing I'll post as soon as I can.

To clarify further the BSOD has happened on a variety of games, sometimes it can happen with in 5mins of loading one other times I am good for a couple of hours or I can play till I've quit the game with no crashing.

I have done scans with MSE, Spybot and Malware Bytes with no issues found.
From looking at other threads, one recommended using a driver scanner to check for updates (SlimDrives), again no updates found.

That's all I can think of for now, also to be honest I am a bit reluctant in having to do a full re-install and would very much like to avoid that if possible.

Thanks in advance,
Mick

Hello all,

This is my first post on these very helpful forums. I hope someone will be able to assist me.

I have a HP ProBook running Windows 7. Ever since I got the laptop, I often get BSODs while attempting to run games (Total War series, The Force Unleashed, just to name a couple). This does not occur with all games, nor does it occur with any other type of software (granted, I mainly use my Windows installation for gaming and other simple tasks such as word processing).

I'm uploading the DM Log Collector output .zip file.

Any help would be greately appreciated.

EDIT: I added the output from BlueScreenView, that blames 'atikmdag.sys' for the crash. Just in case this info can be of any help to you.

Hello!

So let first start of by saying that i've been trying to get rid of these BSoD a long time,
this is not my first time asking for help on forums. I'm going to link to a page where i have posted most of my problems with this computer and they've tried to help me, anyway here it is: BSoDs & Reboots That's the site where i got most help.

Anyway on to the problem, they've concluded it's memory corruption and i've ran Memtest86+ twice & 6-7 passes on the sticks in different slots. I've tried to change
the speeds and timings on them, but my computer refuses to use them as my computer freezes and upon reboot it gives me some error telling me "Overclock failed, reset to default?" although it isn't really overclocking it's their default value. The BSoD problem persisted. So after not getting any responses to my latest posts i thought that i'd remove one memory stick too see if it'd work. And it did, i've only gotten 2-3 BSoDs since and that's 3 weeks, i was used to getting them 3 times a day if not more. Reason for making this thread is that i got one while idling today.
Is Windows 7 . . .

- the original installed OS on the system?
Yes
- an OEM or full retail version?

I recently changed my mother board to an ASUS maximus vii ranger and have been having a few problems with the transition.

I had to replace my SSD initially as i found that it was incompatible with the motherboard. I had been looking at upgrading that part of the system anyway so that was no problem.

Shortly after sorting out the booting issues due to the incompatible SSD i found my computer generating a lot of BSODs during normal operation of windows. This was rectified by updating my windows to the current version using windows update.

The 0124 BSODs have been occurring mainly on intensive games such as GTA V and Far Cry 4.

Any information you could provide me with in order to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

First off it doesn't only crash when playing games, just almost all of the time.
I cannot remember when this first started but i assume it was around the time of windows 10, my PSU became very hot which i noticed upon crashes, so i used an external fan to keep it cool, which it did a very good job of. however, today it has been crashing constantly when playing games, sometimes after 1m or 1h, the PSU is very cool however my CPU fan becomes very hot so i can only assume it is the CPU that is messing up (the CPU fan is still running so that is not broken). i get no blue screen or error message it just shuts down, sometimes automatically restarting but other times pending on me turning it back on.
I have tried reinstalling windows, looked online for hours with no luck. i saw something about updating BIOS but that is beyond me and sounds dangerous from all the warnings i see online. on one error i got a watchdog code which i looked up to find multiple causes, one involving a faulty CPU, i am reluctant to replace it if it is not necessary but am desperate for any help, on the crash event viewer it just says that windows shut down unexpectedly, no error codes or solutions, thanks for any help
 

A:PC Crashing Whilst Playing Games

Hey,

First, it is very hard to give advise when we don't know what system you have.
Please give the make and model, service tag if available, or if custom please list all the exact parts (eg don't list 500w psu, list the full model Corsair CX500W CMPSU-500CX)
Alternatively you can run the TSG utility and copy and paste the info back here.

Next you need to check your temps, both at idle and under load.
Ideally at idle in the BIOS and under load using monitoring software (lots available but the more accurate will be one provided by the motherboard manufacturer if available).
Report all the temps back here (CPU, Motherboard, GPU)

hello, i have just bought a new graphics card and overclocked my pc to achieve a 1:1 CPURAM. My temps and voltages are all fine, max temp for cpu is 55 degrees and gpu max about 75 degrees depending on how much i want to put the fan on (at 80% 75 degrees). Look at my pc specs to get an idea of the OC.
i have updated video drivers and this only occurs when im playing games.
The sound sometimes freezes with the image too, i cant return to my desktop and all i can do is manually restart my computer.
There is no error displayed in the event viewer, and im wrpping my brain with what it could be, i have a termaltake 550 WATT PSU thats about a year old. iahve 2 SATA HDD , any ideas?
thanks

RELEVANCY SCORE 115.6

Hello everyone,

My laptop seems to have started switching itself off at random times when I am playing games, specifically STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl, World in Conflict, The Sims 2, and probably others as well. I assume it is something to do with the graphics card or memory.

I was able to stop World in Conflict switching off by lowering the game detail settings, but the problem remains for STALKER, even if I switch the graphics to the lowest settings. This problem didn't occur a few months ago when I last installed it, and my computer is more than capable of running these games.

Does anyone have any idea what I can do to solve this problem, or at least what type of problem it is? Can I change my video/memory settings to compensate? I am running Windows Vista Home Premium, with an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU processor, 4 GB of RAM, and a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570.

I posted this question in the 'Games' section earlier, but I'm not sure it actually counts as a 'Game' problem.

Thanks alot for your help,
JollySam

Hey guys,
OK, basically i'm having GSODs (grey striped screen of death) whenever I try to play Borderlands or BFBC2..its always about 3-5mins into the game and ALWAYS happens. The odd thing is that I was playing L4D2 for months with not a sniff of a BSOD until now.
I've gone through test after test after test and made little progress into finding out whats wrong + i've replaced the PSU, HDD & RAM in the hope that these might be causing the issues without getting into big ??s for a new GPU, CPU or MB.
The system is circa Oct 09...so components are still fairly new.

I'm not familiar with the more intrinsic areas of the PC like the Bios settings as i've never had a reason to be familiar with them so i've left my voltage settings on auto as I wouldn't have a clue as to what voltages I need to set everything to.
I've attached an analysis file in the hope that someone much cleverer than me can tell me what's wrong.

Thanks guys!

Whilst playing games (specifically LoL and Smite), the laptop screen completely freezes up and I hear a buzzing sound.

since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.

But the last days the Blackscreen stayed like 4 second so i couldnt see the error message on it, so i dont know if the error changed but there was this buzzing sound.

I just updated and rebuilt my PC and have reinstalled Win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a BSOD while using the PC. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet.
From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Hello guys. So here is my issue i dont really know how to specific it further then this still hope it will help.

I have been getting BSOD for a while now and it's getting to the point i cant do a single thing on the computer. I did the config for dumps and so on and ended up with this RAR file with all the info i assume. I mostly get the bluescreen when i try to watch anime etc on googlechrome. It never works it's a matter of seconds before the BSOD comes. But when watching it on other browsers like opera it works just fine "mostly" even there it bluescreens from time to time. And then there is when it's most fatal, Playing onlinegames. Whenever I play online games like World of warcraft, League of Legends, Heroes of Neweart etc etc etc i risk getting bluescreens. It differs very much from game to game how often the bluescreens appear and it seems to not be preformance related since sometimes i play constantly for hours when maxing out games and pushing the computer to it's limits when it comes to frames. And still the bluescreen lies in dorment waiting for a more suitable interrupt for me. From the looks of it the bluescreen is related mostly to my operatingsystem more then commponents after i looked at the dumpfiles via "Bluescreenviewer".

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this and i hope you guys can help me with this. also this is my first post so I maybe did this typical "bad thread", Still i hope this will get me atleast closer to... Read more

So I recently opened my CPU because it was lagging and I thought maybe a little clean up might do the trick. So I softly brushed the drivers inside the CPU to get some dust off. However, when I turned on my PC, it seems that whenever I watch videos or play games, a loud crackling sound comes out from my speakers. I don't know what is causing this.

I have tried disabling my drivers (sound and display) but to no avail. However, if I mute the volume on my sound driver, the sound disappears. Which lead me to the conclusion that it might be a conflict of sound and display.

Since the problem only occured when I opened my CPU and cleaned it, it might also be a wiring problem or something.

Can someone help me on this?

So I got used to it, and played other games like Trine 2 or Counter Strike Global Offensive. Those games worked just fine, but now they're also crashing. Anything else works fine, older games also work. After 10 or 15 minutes of play. Usually I find the root of the problem but now this tricks me well.

Now the PSU is suspicious for me. My card needs minimum 500w, i have this exact amount. But maybe it's not enough for fully powering the videocard.

Thank you in advance!

A fellow gamer.

You uploaded the app and not the data. Please try this method.

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" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:

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, Thanks in advance for any help. Pc started crashng a day or so ago, today when it did it I was playing Minecraft and got a blue screen. It also happend when I was playing Skyrim. It has also happend when no games have been on.

PC is only about a week old. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I have uploaded the dump files etc.

edit: These are the two error codes I got from the crashes today 0x1000007e & 0x0000003b

A:BSOD mainly when playing games

Welcome aboard. There are multiple reason of the crashes.

► First of all, the October edition of nvidia display driver, which usually crashes there.

Code:
fffff880`03ecd258 fffff880`115d746f*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
nvlddmkm+0x5a646f
Install driver fusion. Then uninstall the display driver using it. Then get the September version of nvidia display driver, using the advanced search of NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search.

► Also, AMD SATA Controller AHCI 1.2 Device Driver

Code:
fffff880`03ece568 fffff880`00c38300*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for amd_sata.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for amd_sata.sys
amd_sata+0x3300
update it from AMD Support & Drivers

► uninstall the following programs

Code:
Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite *** A must to do
Start Menu\Programs\ASRock Utility
Start Menu\Programs\ASRock Utility\AsrAppCharger
► Free up the startup.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept the restart.
Let us know the results.

I was playing some casual games, when I started getting BSODs Driver IRQL less or not equal. I'm not too savvy, so while I found the minidump files, I have no idea how to fix the crashes.
For some reason, it only includes the latest BSOD dmp, as the two others gave errors.

Sometimes I can go for a few hours without it happening and sometimes it will happen after only a few minutes.

The BSOD has been different on multiple occasions. The old one was IRQL_less_or_equal or something along those lines and the new and more consistent one is STOP: 0x0000001E (0x00000000000000000, 0x00000000000000000, 0x00000000000000000)

This has only happened while I'm gaming but it happens with any game. All my driver's are updated. I'm not tech savvy so if anyone could help I would really appreciate it.

I just bought this PC less than a month ago. Here's a link to it:

ULTRA BLACK 4.0GHz OVERCLOCKED PC - AMD Phenom II X6, Genuine Windows 7 HP 64-bit, AMD RADEON HD6850 1GB, AMD VISION BLACK, LIQUID COOLED, ASUS M4A89GTD, 8GB DDR3, HYBRID HDD, Corsair 600T Case, USB3 at TigerDirect.com

hey guys just upgraded my computer from the scratch..and after 2 months suddenly my computer started showing blue screen while starting any games after 3 to 5 mins of gameplay the problems occurs.

i have updated my graphic and sound drivers which are essentials.

and checked the graphic card on my other computer and there was no problem with the card as i played the same games like gta4,mafia2,portal2,red faction armageddon.

my graphic card is gtx 460 se palit and required 2 six pins power plug need to be attached to the card..

and my psu is coolermaster gx750 sli

so this suggests my gup is not the culprit and i have checked my ram with memtest and there was no problem with that also so what u guys think of my problem t might be psu.my computer is running stable with no bsod while idle only when playing games bsod occurs..

i am attaching the mini dump file i don't know how to open the mini dump files..
hope u guys help me..

I'm starting to think my mobo is bad but I'm hoping to get something to back it up before I go and get a new computer.

Computer info:
Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
Full retail OS built on system built from scratch about 3 years ago. I haven't attempted a format/reinstall yet which may be coming soon before I buy new hardware.

The BSOD's have become more and more frequent and pretty much only happen while playing games, various games from Battlefield 3 to Star Wars to Orcs Must Die.


I was able to run Memtest86 over night without a single crash or error but I'm thinking about running it again just to be safe.

Any tips/pointers would be greatly appreciated!

A:Various BSOD's while playing games

A few memory corruption BSOD and one blamed hardware (video card)


Code:
sptd.sys Sun Oct 11 16:55:14 2009 (4AD24632)
Please uninstall Daemon Tools/Alcohol 120%. The driver associated with it (SPTD) causes BSOD. Please run the SPTD removal tool - DuplexSecure

This might be the cause of all the crashes. If they don't stop after removing SPTD then I'll have you run some tests

Help me please.

A:[Help] BSOD 124 When playing BF4 and other games

Hi

STOP 0x124 is always hardware related. Among various reasons, Overclocking is the number one reason for this particular BSOD so the first thing you should do is disabling overclocking, voltage tweaking of CPU, RAM and let the system run on stock values (at least as a test).

Whether to overclock or not is your choice but you should understand a fact that overclocking a Core i7 CPU is not going to boost a single FPS in any PC games. Almost all PC games are GPU centric and even the most CPU demanding games only require half the power your CPU offers. OC will benefit in case of certain apps like CAD programs, video rendering etc as they are blindly tied to the clock speed of CPU. But PC games seems to benefit from the number of cores as they are ported from eight core PS3.

Disable OC and check whether it helps. You can re-enable it at any time once the root cause is found.
