Multiple BSOD's over past few months.

Q: Multiple BSOD's over past few months.

Hi there!
 
So as the title suggests, I've been having multiple BSOD's over the past few months that appear to be getting more frequent. I'm not sure if they're related as some of the error codes are different while others are the same. Hopefully you guys can help me here.
 
I'm going to be posting the BlueScreenView info on each as well as providing a link to the minidump file via Mediafire.

Preferred Solution: Multiple BSOD's over past few months.

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.)

Hi there!

So I've been getting multiple BSODs over the past few months during general use. I've gotten several different stop error codes that I will list below, as well as uploading the zip file as per the posting instructions.

System service exception
Driver Irql not less or equal
Kmode exception not handled
System thread exception not handled
Page fault in nonpaged area,

Any and all help is very appreciated! I've tried updating drivers and running memtest, but the problems still persist.
Thanks in advance!

A:Multiple BSODs over past few months during general use.

Hi Salrion,

Welcome to the 8forums.

It appears I cannot read the latest dump file, this could be caused by hardware damage. I think the hard drive might be causing this.
The 2nd most recent dump file says there might be memory corruption.



Diagnostic Test

RAM TEST

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums


   Note


MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.



Diagnostics Test

HDD TEST

Run SeaTools to check the integrity of your HDD. SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use - Windows 7 Help Forums


   Note
Do not run SeaTools on an SSD as the results will be invalid.

I've been getting BSOD since early october. I already tried to use system restore back to previous month before I got BSOD and still getting it.
I've tried to re install windows several times and still get this BSOD.
There was a time I was just freshly installed the windows and in the middle of installing drivers of my laptop and I got BSOD.
I noticed I only get BSOD if I connect to the internet, specifically while browsing or downloading. I never get BSOD while being offline.
So here I am, finally given up on how to solve this and search for help from expert.

Thanks in advance for the input.
Apologize if I happen to miss some details.

I'm on 8.1 and it's almost always when playing World of Warcraft or sometimes just using Firefox. The most recent BSOD a minute ago was KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE.

Blegh.

A:Daily-ish BSOD past few months :(

One of your dumpfiles blames Probably caused by : dxgmms1.sys ( dxgmms1!VIDMM_SEGMENT::MarkResourcesForEviction+cf ).
Driver Description: DirectX Graphics MMS./ this is probably related to your videocards and you mentioned that the bsods mostly happens when gaming.

In your msinfo32 report i found:





<Device><![CDATA[Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600]]></Device>
<PNP_Device_ID><![CDATA[PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0412&SUBSYS_D0001458&REV_06\3&11583659&0&10]]></PNP_Device_ID>
<Error_Code><![CDATA[This device is disabled.]]></Error_Code>



.

Why is this device disabled did you have problems with it?
How did you disabled it, through device manager or did you disabled it in your Biossettings?.
Your Logitech G710 keyboard drivers are outdated(2009), please update the latest drivers from here Support + Downloads: G710 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Logitech and also update the drivers(2012) for your Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910.

Please also update your Intel Watchdog Timer driver(2010), it is (probably) part of the intel mangement engine.
Check the support/driver downloadsite of your OEM model or system(mainboard) for the latest windows 8.1 driver here GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - GA-Z87X-D3H (rev. 1.x).
And please also update all the other drivers to the latest version.

I have so many Blue Screen errors on my PC I don't know what to do with myself.

I have re-installed Windows 7 Ultimate fresh.

I have been running Driver Verifier for the past 6 hours. No BSOD so far so I am thinking it isn't a driver issue.

I have ran the Seagate HD Diagnostic Test, and everything has passed.

A lot of the time these BSOD's occur when I am gaming/streaming my games.

I'm throwing in the towel.
I have received numerous BSOD's over the past 8 months or so. They reference different errors, but most are memory related. The last one (today) was saying that I was attempting to execute non-executable memory.

I have not had a lot of time to sit and fix the issue. I finally decided to come here and get help.

I am attaching the required zip files.
By the way, this happens on all 4 accounts on the computer, not just admin, etc.
The dump files are processed from my personal account, which is also the admin account.
Do I need to attach the zip files from every profile on the host?

A:BSOD out of no where 3rd time past 2 months.

Don't bother checking for solutions. Can't remember a time that has actually worked for me. I am also going to ignore the codes for the moment as they do not enjoy telling the exact issue at hand.

1. What are you doing when the BSOD pops up? You say you keep it in sleep mode, etc?

2. It is a very rare issue. Give us your computer specs (I recommend Speccy for a more thorough deluge of information).

3. Toss us a small list of your most used programs (that you actually have to open yourself) and any consistent programs such as Anti-Spyware and Anti-Virus.

4. There is a chance you do have a minor (or very sneaky) virus on your computer causing the issue. Run a thorough virus scan via Avast or maybe Avira (free-versions) and nab yourself Comodo (free again) while you are at it.

5. Finally (and last on the list) how often do you actually turn off your computer? What are your core temperatures? When was the last time you applied Thermal? Can you cook an egg on the darn thing? Let us know.

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. . .

Hey everybody,
I've been getting system crashes and restarts for the past two months. It seems to be completely random and I never use any programs that are too intensive - at most photoshop. In the first day it happened, it restarted 5 times within half an hour. This was helped by me doing a system restore. Still had the problem but it was around once a day. After talking to HP support a few days ago and doing that the guy told me to do, it got waaay worse and I restored it again. It's still worse than before but slightly better.
Anyway, I have no idea what I should do. Please help!

Since about 7 months back I've been experiencing a BSOD on my Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5529 laptop. It would happen upon logging into my account and would only stop if I booted up in safe mode. Other people use the computer too so I can't be quite sure what may have caused it but since this week it has actually booted up twice, including now, without being in safe mode and hasn't blue screened. The BOSD always returns though so I'm sure this time will be no different. I was wondering if anyone could help me resolve this issue as I would love to be able to use this laptop again. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Like the topic title says my Windows 7 computer has been getting Blue Screens on and off for a while now.  This is a fairly recent computer that I built at the start of last year.  I don't know how much help this information would be but at the start of this year I installed a new 2TB hard drive, and made a switch from WIFI to Ethernet, and sometime after that the BSODs started happening.  I bring up the Ethernet bit because one of the BSODs happened after I accidentally knocked out the Ethernet cable.
 
I decided to stop putting it off after i got two Blue Screens within the same hour today.
 
I've attached the minidump files down below.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

Hello all,

Over the past 6 months or so I have been getting random BSODs with no obvious symptoms of what is causing them.

They started happening last September after I got back from the Summer. To begin with I tried to diagnose the problem following various guides to try and work out what could be causing them. I did the following:
Memtest
Reg check
Driver Verifier
Updated Drivers
Checked for any physical damage on hardware
Tried restoring

No matter what I did I could not either fix the problem or find the cause of the problem. The main reason for this was the "ntoskrnl.exe+XXXXX" would appear each time on each crash, and searching online I could not find a definitive reason or answer to the crashes.

So I decided in the meantime to live with the possible chance that I would BSOD every now and then. For the most part this was fine as they became less frequent.

Then came today. I've had 3 BSOD in one day and now its starting to irritate me. Knowing that my previous efforts to try and find a solution were to no results, I just don't know what to do. I'm getting the point that I might just rip out all my hardware and start fresh, but that won't be for another 3 months or so.

So here are the .dmps from September till now. Looking at them in BlueScreenView the Caused Driver and Address are all different, there are some common patterns such as the "Qualcomm Atheros Driver" I did update this but ended up making the problem worse, as it made m... Read more

Hello everyone,

So, I built a PC last year and it has been running (relatively) fine for most of the time. However, about 2 months ago (around the time I bought a new video card) I began getting BSOD. Most of the time, I get these crashes while playing games. Specifically, it would often crash when I was playing Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Yesterday, I updated my video card drivers, and today I got 2 BSODs withing roughly 2 hours of playing games online. This is the most frequent amount of BSODs I have seen since building the PC, and I believe now they must be driver related.

A few weeks ago I downloaded a program called BlueScreenView to keep track of the BSOD error codes. Checking out the codes I see 3 different errors so I'm not sure if they are all interrelated or what. I'll copy/past the error codes at the bottom of this post. If anybody has any ideas for me, I'd really appreciate it.

Hello, I've been on a bit of a journey the past week so I'll try to be brief and organized.

Last Tuesday, I added 2x4 GB of new RAM (same make, manufacturer, GBs, speed, etc. as the old RAM) and hooked up a second monitor (same as old monitor, though due to my GPU's available outputs the old one is on hdmi and the new one is DVI). Since then I have been having regular BSOD crashes, typically after 3-4 hours of consecutive use though on Sunday it managed to go 7 hours without crashing. I have had seven BSOD in the past week. There appears to be no common program causing them, I'll just be watching a movie, playing a game, or doing some typing when the crash will just happen.

For quick reference, the probable causes for each BSOD are listed in the minidumps as follows (from oldest to newest, I only thought to record the Stop data for the two most recent):

dxgmms1.sys
win32k.sys
HDAudBus.sys
ntkrnlmp.exe
atikmdag.sys
tcpip.sys Stop oxoooooo7F
hardware/dxgmms1.sys Stop oxoooooo3D (the minidump listed hardware, the actual BSOD showed dxgmms1.sys as the cause)

Trying to figure things out for myself, I first tried removing the second monitor after the second crash. When that had no effect, I tried updating my GPU's drivers through AMD Catalyst Control Center. Then I ran memtest86 for 10 passes with no errors (I've included a screenshot).

At this point I'm guessing it's a driver problem or something wrong with my GPU, since several of the minidumps seem to point graphics being t... Read more

Hey!

In the past(and today) i have been getting plenty of BSOD's. Most of them happen when i play games like Planetside 2 but some of them happen when i am doing something like watching a video or leaving it on for an extended period of time. I have also been getting plenty of freezes, forcing me to restart my computer.

My CPU fan is quite loud and i first thought all of the BSOD's were caused by my computer overheating, so i put a relativity small sized fan right next to the computer. It quietened down the noise a little bit but it did not stop the freezes and BSOD's from coming.

Ah, almost forgot, when i was cleaning out my CPU fan, i did not have any thermal paste on me, so there isn't any new paste between the chip and heat sink.

Greetings,

I recently had the power supply replaced (under warranty) in my computer after it died on me. Since getting it back, I have had a few blue screens. I tried updating drivers and a few others things, after each blue screen, but I don't really know what to do now. Each BSOD has been different, though I am sure they are each related somehow. I am hoping it's not some other part of the hardware failing on me.

Attached are the requested files from the Posting Instructions. And here are my specs (computer was built for me about a year and a half ago, not purchased from a retailer):

OS - Vista Home Edition 32-bit (first and only install on this system)
CPU - AMD Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition
Video Card - NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT
MotherBoard - ASUS M3N72-D
Power Supply - Prudent Way 650w

BSOD details:
Almost every time I received a BSOD, I was either playing a game or watching (or at least attempting to watch) a video, and was also on Skype. The last error, which prompted me to post here, I was almost done watching a show on Hulu (full screen) when the audio cut out completely. The volume was still showing it was not muted, so i unplugged my headset and the BSOD occurred when the headset was plugged back in.

Please let me know if any other details are needed and thank you in advance for any help!

What PSU did you have before it died?

You may want to remove McAfee, as it commonly causes BSODs. Here is the removal tool: http://download.mcafee.com/products/...tches/MCPR.exe

MSE is the recommended replacement: http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials

I'm not sure what you mean by this?
What is the make and model of your computer? You may have a Recovery Partition on your computer. If you start up your computer, you may have a quick message over the logo that says Press (key) to Enter Recovery, sometimes this is F11. If so, this will set your computer back to Factory Defaults. This will remove all personal data, so backup first.
If you do not have a recovery partition, then read up on the link in my signature PC Running Slow? And try those things.

I've been getting seemingly random BSODs on my Win8.1 box for months now. There are several different errors that show up, and most of them seem to point to the drivers. I have no idea which driver could be causing the issue though, as I've reinstalled the majority of them.

A few I can remember:
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
ATTEMPTED_EXECUTE_OF_NON_EXECUTE_MEMORY
TIMER_OR_DPC_INVALID

Bluescreenview points at ntoskrnl.exe for nearly every one of them, though some have others thrown in as well such as usbehci.sys, dgxkrnl.sys, and ndis.sys

I'm at a loss of what to do at this point. Some days I only get one BSOD, other days I get 5+. It's really starting to be an issue.

A:BSODs over the past few months. Many different reasons

MSINFO32 report is missing. Please do this:





MSINFO32:
Please go to Start and type in "msinfo32.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Save the report as an .nfo file, then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
Also, save a copy as a .txt file and include it also (it's much more difficult to read, but we have greater success in getting the info from it).

If you're having difficulties with the format, please open an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt and type (or copy/paste) "msinfo32 /nfo %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\TEST.NFO" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Out of 11 memory dumps there were 5 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.

On my C: Drive that is SSD I used to have around 38GB free (was even 42GB but after accidental turning the windows update on I lost to 38GB). Since I stayed at 38GB without wasting space with silly windows updates (turned off ofc) and I installed only tiny programs, I don't see how did I become from 38GB to 23GB of free space?? I may have searched files through 15K photos a month ago if such thing ever reduces disk space (such as indexing) but I checked one windows.ecb (or something like that) file was only 133MB, I don't see where all the space got lost?? I was installing a few (3-4) small programs that when I saw are of no use to me - uninstalled. I have run disk cleanup many times and I don't see where all that space went?

I may have accidently enabled 'Windows 7 file recovery' but I made sure to disable this trash immediately, meaning I do not have any folders on the disk space that would take so much memory.

I know that sometimes if you delete a lot of files like thousands of files, 20GB + of space, the space doesn't restore immediately (whenever it comes from many deleted files) but for that reason I deleted files from removable disk, to not get any traces on the main HDD.

Is there any tool to check over the months, how your free space got lowered, I could then see on a graph if the drop of space got sudden or not, to identify what could have caused it. And I dislike using any 3rd party 'cleaners' or whatever software

A:Lost 15 GB over the past months for nothing.. realized now

You can set how much space is used for System Restore, check and see how much space is allotted and how much percent wise is being used.

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?

Welcome to SF Dan .

The dump files are not showing a definitive cause but most of them are 0x1A, so the best course
of action in these type of situations is detailed in the quote below.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.

I have W7, 6 memory 650 HD, quad core -2 year old hd computer. ISP CABLE 12 m speed - On net speed tests , i get 10 to 20 download speeds. I am using 335 g with, with 249g showing as still available for a total 584. .

COMPUTER is running very very slow on net and non- net, with occasional hang ups that last sometimes last as much as a minute. The Hang ups are more frequent on non- net and I sometimes get the no responding.

We checked everything that could be using extra resources and it made very little differences .

We discovered one potential problem and I seek your advice on this matter-- In the info drive properties , The box that says says " COMPRESS THIS DRIVE TO SAVE DISC SPACE " was CHECKED.

A friend said that if the g's are uncompressed , my 335g could possibly be double and the drive is overloaded causing the computer to run slow everywhere- He suggests that I just go buy a new 2 tb hd and move all my stuff over and keep the existing hd as a partial back up.
I am extremely hesitant to remove the check box for fear of what could happen.

I do happen to have everything backed up via external hd including the Operating system , but putting that in motion is something that I would like to avoid.

Anyway, I sure would appreciate your advice on this mess.

Sincerely,,,, Ralph

Check my signature on the link on how to safely "Optimize" windows 7. Also, this tutorial may help with any problems:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker (by Brink)

In addition, as the optimization tutorial suggested, the more programs you have installed, the higher the chance you will have for slowdowns. Only have a single antivirus installed at any one time, and please oh please say that it isn't Avast!, McAfee, or AVG -.-

For the networking problem, go to the wireless adapter card's manufacturer's website and look for any updates to the driver software. If there are, download it, uninstall the driver on your computer, and then install the new driver.

Check your add ons and make sure they are not swamping your computer with slowdowns. Disable any you do not want or use.

Hello all. Since around the middle of October, I have suddenly been receiving BSODs, mostly DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, or IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I have collected the necessary files and will upload them, with one caveat - I cleaned out the dump files a week or so ago, so I only have a few. After trolling forums for a bit, I did a few self diagnostics such as updating drivers, and that seems to have reduced the frequency. I was getting them at least once a day, but after updating the Razer Synapse program by cleanly uninstalling and reinstalling, I was able to knock a lot of it out.

I updated to Windows 10 basically the day it was released, and have not really had any problems up until this point. I generally use this computer for gaming, but it does also serve as a home office PC as well. I am very careful as to what files I will allow on my PC, and I have run multiple virus scans/Windows Defender scans. The only thing that I have seen it pick up is a false positive on Oblivion.exe (game) due to modding the EXE to be LAA. Other than that it is clean.

I also ran SeaTools, and that came back clear. I have not run chkdsk yet, but will probably run that if necessary. The only new hardware that I can recall adding in the past few months would be the Microsoft Xbox One Wireless Adapter, back near the end of October/beginning of November.

Please let m know ou need any additional information.

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.

Dear Forum,

I have found this website which seems to of helped a number of users with many issues and I am hoping I could be another...

My PC was purchased around two months ago from UKGC, it's a custom build as I haven't the time these days to build myself ... so I'll note the parts before I continue:

CPU - Intel Core i7 5820K Extreme 3.3Ghz 6 CoreGPU - Nvidia GTX 980 4GBPSU - Corsair RM750 750W Fully ModularRAM - 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 2666GhzMOBO - Asus 2011-V3 X99-SCooler - Corsair H60 Water Cooling SystemSSD - Samsung 500GB 840 Evo Solid State DriveHDD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD 7200rpm 64MB CacheOS - Win 8.1

Up until a week ago my PC was running great with almost no issues at all (The only small issue was my second hard drive sometimes disconnected for no reason). I cannot be specific but one day I had multiple driver fails from my GPU, sadly cannot remember what they said, could of said something like kernel driver... but that would be a guess.

Since then I thought my issue was driver related so I quickly downloaded the latest driver from Nvidia, the GTA 5 Update, I believe it was called to my PC to solve.

However this did not fix the issue and instead seemed to only make the issue much, much worse.

DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION - that was my first BOSD error code and this happened many times. I also suffered crashes on logging in, screen freezes and artefacts on my screen. Since I have don't 4 fresh windows installs to solve the issue - but failed.

The 5 most recent are caused by memory corruption (probably a driver-My bet is avg)

I notice your AVG which is often at least a contributing cause of BSOD'S . Please remove and replace your AVG with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

Download tools and utilities | AVG Worldwide

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

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

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

Good day,

I have been away on vacation for 2 months and after I've come back, my pc went to hell :D

These are the problems im facing :

The PC BSODs after putting pressure on it. Mainly - games.

Firstly ALL of them simply crash, browser ones - shockwave has crashed.
Minecraft - java crashed.
Guild Wars 2 - crash, etc etc.

Now if I put even more pressure than just try playing them, for example run a minecraft server AND play in it - I BSOD.

Now a day back it was alot worse - I would BSOD minutes after startup without doing a thing! So I took measure :

1. Updated all my drivers.
2. Ran a virus scan (clean)
3. Ran a Malware scan (1 malware file)
4. Used Registry Mechanic to its full power.

All of these seem to have helped to getting me able to use the pc just fine if I dont game.

Now what I suspect is a RAM failure. I ran a Memtest and it came out with 29 errors after one run.

I'm new to the forums and also am using Windows XP SP3 so I dont know what error info and how to give you :( If you specify and instruct -ill get you the logs.
