Daily-ish BSOD past few months :(

Q: Daily-ish BSOD past few months :(

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.

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.)

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Your Logitech G710 keyboard drivers are outdated(2009), please update the latest drivers from here Support + Downloads: G710 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Logitech and also update the drivers(2012) for your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.

If theBSOD's continue, I'd suggest running Driver Verifier according to theseinstructions: Driver Verifier Settings .

It is always great to help a knowledgeable user such as yourself.

I do notice some software installed that I would not recommend for repairing Windows problems. 3rd party driver finding utilities and tweaking software can be hazardous to the operating system and the software installed on the operating system.The Assumptions You Make About Your Slow PC (and Why They're Probably Wrong)


Recommendations:The most recent crash blames Norton, but earlier crashes all point to sptd.sys as the cause, which is very common, especially given that yours is three years old.

Please remove any CD/DVD virtualization software, such as Daemon Tools/Alcohol 120%, as they use a driver called sptd.sys that is known to cause BSODs. Use add/remove programs to remove the software. After removing the software, use the sptd.sys uninstaller to remove sptd.sys from the system by choosing to uninstall the software through the installer utility.sptd.sys Sun Oct 11 14:55:14 2009 (4AD24632)

I have been getting the BSOD for several months now. It occurs almost every day I use the PC. (Acer, 64 bit OS).

I mostly use the PC to browse the web (Chrome and others too), so it mostly happens when I'm doing that. However, it has occurred when I have been doing other things. It has also occurred when I was doing nothing at all.

I did not install any new hardware before this started happening. The only software that was installed were updates to existing software (mostly basic stuff). So I have no idea what triggered this problem.

I hope this can be resolved without having to reinstall the OS. I'm not sure good my recovery data is.

I have attached the requested zip file.

I appreciate your help.

Thanks,
Mike

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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. Then navigate to Desktop to retrieve the TEST.NFO file. If you have difficulties with making this work, please post back. Then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.



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.

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

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.

Periodically, lately it's at least daily, my mouse cursor freezes and the computer becomes unresponsive requiring cold boot. This sometimes happens even before I log on if I boot up and don't log on then come back later, the mouse may be frozen. It also happens while in idle and screen saver is running. I was running in Safe Mode w/ Networking today and it also happened.

The mouse I was using was a MS Wireless Mouse 5000. That one would just freeze. I accidentally destroyed it and am now using a MS Wireless ARC mouse instead. The only difference I notice is that the ARC mouse will occasionally pause the cursor in a spot for a second or two and then continue. However, it also will eventually freeze and lock system.

Not sure how to identify where the problem is. Please advise or instruct and I will get more info, perform tests, etc.

I've updated the NVIDIA driver recently to the latest one.

Thanks!

There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I have been having the worst time with my custom built PC since it was built. I am getting random BSOD's here and there, but there does seem to be a correlation between a greater occurence when playing games. Often I can't play a high-resolution game for more than an hour or two before I crash.

I heard a recommendation to try Prime95, and I get an insta-BSOD when doing the Blend test.

I haved tested the memory and did not see any problems.

First test group on this machine (Acer T650-99TZ):
prime95: rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4 (after 2 minutes)
memtest86: many errors whit 2 stick of ram, 0 errors when testing the sticks singularly
Furmark: test passed with no errors (30 minutes)
hdtune: no errors

Second test group on second identical machine (Acer T650-99TZ + hdd, ram and gpu from the first machine)
prime95: rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4 (after 2 minutes)
memtest86: many errors whit 2 stick of ram, 0 error when testing the sticks singularly

Third test group on second and first machine (same hw except for the gpu: here I took out the HD 3650 and used the integrated gpu)
prime95: no errors (in 8 hours)
memtest86: no errors (100% passed)


Ram: 2x1gb 1Rx8 PC2-5300U 555-12 hymp112u64cp8-y5
CPU: Pentium 4 524
Obviously no overclock was made on this pc.
Obviously gpu drivers are up-to-date.

Now i'm trying to donwngrade the drivers of the GPU but I think this won't work, since the problem appear to be an incompatibility between the HD 3650 and the other hw.

Can anyone help me to solve this problem? Thanks

These devices include android, iphone, ipod, ipad, netbook, laptop, smart tv and even my dvd player (java).. I have tried to ask for help and seek help for this and no one can figure it out or think this cant be real.

Hi, I'm coming here because everytime I format my computer into Windows 7, it'll show up a BSOD of uncorrectable hardware error while playing games, but in this case, it's Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas.

Any ideas?

I tried replacing the hard drive, RAM, and updating my graphics card.

A:BSOD for over a few months

Hello Tony & welcome,
If you are getting BSOD's & want them analyzed please follow the directions below -

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.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
** Until a .dmp file is generated, the Minidump folder may not exist.**

*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 drop down box (the 256kb varies).
*Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
*OK.
Reboot if changes have been made.

I don't remember what I was doing with the computer (if anything) when it BSOD-ed last month, but this month I was capturing video from a PVR. Something not very stressful at all and something that's been done hundreds of times before. Attached are the dumps and, being a novice, I have no idea what they mean. Thanks in advance for any help!

Two months ago, I got many BSOD's, and with the help of this forum, the problems were resolved.
Since then, I have not encountered any problems.
Until today. Got a BSOD with a message Bad_Pool_Header
I have not installed any drivers or any software lately. So I do not have a hint what could cause the BSOD.

Here is the result of SF Tools:

Thanks for the support.

A:First BSOD since 2 months

We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:





There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard! I STRONGLY suggest not using controller drivers older than mid-2012 with SSD's.
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.
- Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.

Hello everyone, I have looked around everywhere to try to sort my problems out but I've had no luck. Now I've decided to bite the bullet and ask for help. I had a computer built about 3 months ago. Everything was fine at first, then I started to get BSOD.

First the errors were due to 'a clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor' but now they are going into a more serious 'uncorrectable hardware error'. I'm after potentially pinning down the dodgey component and sending it back, or fixing it - and I'm hoping someone would be kind enough to help. I'll try to provide as much info as I can:

Problem signature:

A:3 months of BSOD,

It is much easier to find patterns, etc, when there are more than one crash. We prefer you wait until you have at least two so that if one is corrupt the other probably wont be.
That being said the single log blames BCC 101

Hi,

I'm fighting a BSOD for about 50 days now, It's happening randomly in different situations for a minimum of two times daily.

I'm suspecting that my memory is the problem (2x2GB Chaintech APOGEE) as it appears in a weird way in Gigabyte easytune (some times appear as one memory module, other times with different frequency and properties for each module).

I ran Memtest86 with one module at a time and there were no errors.

I also ran the Windows 7 Memory test on both modules with no errors.

CPU: Intel i7-930

Mainboard: Gigabyte X58A-UD3R

Display: Geforce GTS 250 1GB

HDD: Seagate 1TB SATA

Windows Version: Windows 7 Ultimate 64

Windows Type: Full Retail

Hardware Age: 2 Months

Windows Age: Around 50 Days (Repaired Two Days ago)

Running Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 11.0.0.232

I appreciate any help, This BSOD causes a serious pain & I lost work many times because of it.

Thanks in advance.

A:BSOD for 2 Months

One error is caused by Kaspersky.. will check further.. and others will be here to take a look. I would recommend removing it and replacing with MSE or another antivirus

I have had 107 BSOD's the last two months, and when I sent the computer into the shop to get fixed up, the only diagnoses the geniuses had was that there was nothing wrong with the computer. This Gateway SX2850-33 was bought in mid-December and has been crashing since April 12th.

I have looked at BlueScreenView and done debuggers (dumpchk/WinDbg). Here is the output from the debuggers

Your dmp files indicated either you have a bad Video Driver or you have a bad memory stick.
