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.)

Please remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp, called sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Hiya

I've just finished building my new computer and I'm getting BSOD errors when first formatting a hard drive and secondly (after a successful format) installing a game on it.

My boot up SSD drive seems to be fine, it's just my other hard drive.

64bit Windows 7 Home premium. Full version I bought a a few days ago. The whole computer is new. If you need any further information, let me no.

8GB RAM. Intel Core i5 2500k CPU. Radeon 7850 graphics. 120ish SSD. 1Tb hard drive. Asus P8Z68-V Pro gen3 motherboard.

Edit: having just seen a notice, I've updated the post to contain two attachments. Or atleast I think I have :\

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.

If you are overclocking STOP

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:





Quote:
* 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:





Quote:
* 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 all. When booting up my PC it causes a BSOD at the Window password screen displaying the error 'Driver_irql_less_or_not_equal'. The only way I can start the PC is by booting whilst hitting F8 and choosing 'Last known good configuration'.


I've tried to do a system restore twice but it caused a BSOD both times. I am running Windows 7 64 bit.

Please help?!

Thank you.

Hey Guys, need some help here also.

Here's the scenario. Last time when i use my dvd-drive, it didn't occured any BSOD, but later on i think around after few months, it start showing me BSOD sometimes when i'm using my dvd-drive.
Then i thought is the hardware failure, since the dvd-drive is quite old & slow already, somemore is an IDE drive.
Then i changed another new SATA dvd-drive, but still sometimes it still give me BSOD. I thought maybe is the power cable fault, then i switch another power cable, still the same. I can't find the root cause of this problem, please help.

BSOD details :

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
STOP:0x000000D1

here's i attach my minidump log, & the pic of the BSOD

Hi, im keep getting the BSOD when i use my cd drive to access a cd. I have had a look for the mini dump files in c:\windows\minidump and my computer doesnt seem to be writing any. I have even done a search for .mdmp files and have found a few old files but nothing that relates to anything recent. the error codes that i am getting are:
0X00000124

0XFFFFFA800B103030

and on the other occasions that it happens, the 4th line changes to the following:
B36C030
B3DA030
B434030

ive tried to get a debugger but without the files its a bit of a non starter!

Ive reinstalled the driver for the cd drive (Hitachi HDT725032VLA) and it is now ok under the hardware properties but still crashes my system when i try to use it!

Hope you can help!!

Since the recent November update I have been getting BSOD once or twice a day. What follows is the on screen notification:

Driver IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL(dxgnms1.sys)

What puzzles me most (not that I know much about this anyway) is that when I restart it is not the (C) Drive which has the OS which is scanned and repaired, it is the (D) Drive with apps / programs, docs and media. This has not happened before, is it unusual? Has it anything to do with the fact that I have just made full use of the new MOVE option to transfer apps to (D)? I understand that it likely to be a driver issue and thought drivers would be on (C)?

Can someone explain this to me before I try to apply the Forum instructions for reporting BSOD?

Been having a lot of BSOD recently. Every time I try to burn a disc, I come back to it and this has happened now with two different drives (just upgraded to a blu ray burner). The computer has also been locking up often within 15 minutes of starting up and requires a hard reset. I imagine if I left it be during those times, it'd ultimately result in another BSOD.

I'll try uploading the information as per instructions, but I manually wrote down the message BSOD...

"Stop: 0x0000000F4 (0x000000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA8010F95100, 0xFFFFFA8010F958E0, 0xFFFFF800037DD460)"

A:BSOD when using DVD drive

Welcome bonjourmate.

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump. You first search them manually in the default path,
C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump.

If that location is empty, Follow the tutorial:
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Wait for the next crash, and then post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Anyway, a stop 0xF4 is storage related. For it, what you are to do initially is:
Update your SSD's Firmware (not needed if you are not using a SSD)
Re-seat the sata and power. (for all drives including Optical and internal disks)
Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Let us know the results.

Hi all, I've been having this weird problem and this site looked like a good place to ask about it because of the support I've seen. So wooooo first post~!
Anyway, whenever I unplug one certain flash drive (a Kingston DataTraveller SE9) my laptop bluescreens with the error "SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED". I can't figure out why for the life of me! I did, however, figure out that the flash drive is recognized as a local disk and not a removable one. This issue only applies to my laptop, that's it; the drive works perfectly fine on any other computer. I can still read and write to it no problem. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

A:Unplugging Certain USB Drive Causes BSOD

Some USB flash drives act like a hard drive which Windows lists as local disk instead of removable. You will notice that when you delete anything on the USB drive labeled local the deleted items go to the recycle bin. On a USB flash drive labeled removable the items are not sent to the recycle bin.
 
Download USBdeview. Run the program Highlight any listing for Kingston DataTravler and press the red X to remove. Reboot the computer and attach the Kingston again. Do you get the error?

I am not too sure if its a PSU issue where as being not enough or a Motherboard issue..... the reason i say motherboard issue is because when i was installing the new 3tb hard drive i had to take out one of my Radeon 7970 cards , in doing so i think i may of pulled out the plastic pci-e port of the board as i never pushed the release lever down enough , the port did seem to go back in ok. But after doing this my problems started to happen....but only when i have both cards in cross fire , single usage is fine , no crashes , but as soon as the second is put into crossfire mode i get crashes , The event viewer gives me a bugcheck code of 278 everytime...so i really dont know weather it is a power supply problem or a motherboard ( due to my carelessness ) below are my specs and the dump zip and perfmon zip.

Hi.

I've been having loads of PC problems recently and its getting me down. Just as I thought I had it stable I noticed this.

I keep getting Bugcode_USB_Driver blue screen. But it only seems to happen overnight when i'm not there to see if anything is causing it. But if its happening while the PC isn't really being used how on earth is it happening?

The only thing running is O&O Defrag. One of my external drives (1TB Seagate) is highly fragmented and it seems like it will take hours to complete, but it never manages to finish because while leaving it running I wake up to a BSOD. I manage to have it running a few hours a day but no BSOD occurs, just when I check it after a night of sleep!

Could this be the problem? My external drive is going dodgy?

I've tried uninstalling all usb drivers and changed the usb port its using. And just to eliminate things, a system overclock would not cause this right? Its not running too hot and has been stable for months before now.

This is incredibly frustrating and would like some advice and help.
Thanks

I had 'Magicdisc' installed and it was working fine until a few days ago.I started getting blue screens due to the file 'mcdbus.sys' so i tried uninstalling 'MagicDisc' (which wasnt easy) and got rid of it using a command line to uninstall it. I wasn't sure if it uninstalled completely so I used 'CCleaner' and deleted faulty registeries. Then I installed 'Daemon Tools Lite' as I have to have a virtual drive and during installation, as soon as it said 'setting up virtual drive' my system gave a blue screen, this time due to the file 'dtsoftbus01.sys' and so I uninstalled the Daemon tools lite after logging into safe mode.

I really need a virtual drive software, but so far I've figured out that as soon as I install a program that creates virtual drive, my system starts giving blue screens. The system works fine otherwise.

Windows 7 Professional 32bit
Originally installed with Vista
Retail upgrade

Reinstalled OS 2 months ago

Keep getting the BSOD at random times, there is never just one program that initiates it. I have done a system restore, reformatted the old hard drive, installed a new hard drive and nothing has helped.

I'm running Microsoft Security Essentials, and believed the computer to be clean of viruses. But took it Office Depot this morning and they say there may be a virus on it.

I've attached the zipped files as instructed. If there is a virus, and it is still there after replacing the hard drive, I don't know what to do.

Thank you

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!!!

How long have you been running Windows 7 on this motherboard? I believe that your hardware barely can support running Windows 7. Your BIOS is from 2009 which could be problematic.

Here are some of my suggestions:
Search your hardware parts on the Windows 7 Compatibility Center, and ensure that Microsoft has approved the product to be 7 ready.End with the Upgrade Advisor afterwards.

Though if you're fine in Safe Mode, it might not be the problem but it can't hurt.

Last week I installed my new Hitachi Deskstar 1.5TB SATA 6.0 Gb/s hard drive. Windows recognized it right away and everything went smoothly as I transferred files over. A day later I started getting generic DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD's, but they only happened right after I woke up the computer from Sleep Mode. Before I installed the HD my computer was absolutely perfect with no problems so this made me think it was a driver issue. Updated all drivers with Driver Genius, but still BSOD after waking up computer (they are random, it doesn't happen after every wake).

My motherboard has two SATA III 6.0Gb/s ports. The first is occupied by my Crucial C300 SSD booting Win7 Ultimate x64, and the other with my new Hitachi. These are controlled by a Marvell 6.0Gb/s driver. I also have two SATA 3.0gb/s devices connected: a WD Black 1TB HD and an ASUS Optical drive. I'm starting to think it has something to do with either the Marvell Controller, or how these three hard drives are configured, but honestly I have no idea at this point. I'm usually well versed when it comes to troubleshooting BSOD's or any general problem with my PC but I cannot figure this out for the life of me so I'm hoping you guys can help me out!

P.S.

Before you guys ask for a minidump file, trust me, i've tried! I don't know why, but when my PC BSOD's it won't generate a dump file. I have all the settings configured for the memory dump, but it will not produce. I opened up the computer and checked all ... Read more

I have a longstanding issue with a pc I have. As soon as it loads past the xp logo screen there is a BSOD with stop code

0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF87F6756, 0xF8A8142C, 0xF8A81128)

I have searched around google for the 7E stop code but solutions found have not worked.

This is a PC with no cards (graphics or audio), HDD that is newly formatted and installed a fresh copy of XP professional SP3. The PC enters safe mode with networking fine, I have internet and can install drivers for USB etc using the OEM CD. There is one device still uninstalled, as it says found new hardware and the device name is MEDIA and this does not match any drivers on the CD. I can't think what this device could be.

So, the HDD works, I have plugged it into another computer (this one) and the disk operates fine. I have also replaced the RAM on that PC with the working RAM stick from this one and it still gives the same BSOD. I have also used a different PSU, but still giving the BSOD. I also have reset the BIOS to default with no joy. I have run chkdsk /r with no effect

The motherboard is a M2A-VM series with 690G chipset (X1250 gpu). The CPU is a AMD Q9550. No hardware has changed since it last worked. No drivers have changed, and it is a fresh install now with OEM drivers, which have worked for me before. All BIOS settings are on default, such as AUTO voltage and RAM timing settings.

Interesting point I add, that may complicate things, is that the PC is not new. It was fully working before ... Read more

I read some posts here about a similar problem but none answer my question. I was trying to partition my hard drive with disk manager in vista home premium. I partitioned 22gb and formatted it FAT32 then it started to ask me for drivers which i didn't have or know where to even get the drivers and vista wasn't able to find it, so i then restarted my computer then after i see that the partition that i made doesn't say it has been formatted it looks like it unformatted it self, I so restart again and i get the blue screen saying the error 0x0000007b. So the only way to fix it is to use the vista boot disk and use system restore then it works. Then i see the partitioned drive looks formatted and appears in My computer again and it asks me again to install drivers, like the first time i formatted it. For some reason the partitioned drive gets unformatted after i restart my computer which causes me to get a blue screen error. I hope it makes some sense. Please help!

I recently got a 2 TB Seagate GoFlex hard drive, and thought it would be cool if I could install a Windows OS onto a partition on it, basically just to see if I could, if it would work well on more than one computer, if it worked noticably better/worse than on an internal one, etc. Not as a replacement for my normal OS, just to do it. So I found this great tutorial: How To Install Windows 7 On USB Flash Drive or External Hard Drive I followed the instructions, using a Windows 7 Ultimate disk. (at this point I don't think I have an available key for it, I just want to install it with the thirty day trial and see if it works before doing anything real with it) Everything worked great, I restarted my computer and it starting installing like it was supposed to, but about halfway through "setup is installing devices" I get a BSOD. Happens no matter how many times I try it. I even read further down that page to a comment that said it might be fixed by disabling SATA controllers in the BIOS: How To Install Windows 7 On USB Flash Drive or External Hard Drive still get this same BSOD.

Hi Souzr.

Do you have access to another computer right now? If so, download Partition wizard Bootable CD (the last one in the link). Burn it in a blank CD or in a USB flash stick.

Boot into Partition Wizards GUI following this instructions. When you are on the last screen, take a camera snap of the screen and upload the snap here.

We need to see the partitions and parameters.

Also, better you perform a bootable HDD scan, as the second image says. Try Seatools for DOS. Let us know the results.

XP x64 BSOD Writing to Mapped Drive? [SOLVED]

I've been tracking this problem down for months on end but can't seem to find a cause, let alone a resolution.

I'm running XP x64 on a 2-processor Dell Workstation with a few mapped drives. I've been getting lots of blue screens, often in clumps. I'll get 2 one Tuesday, be fine for a week, and then get 6 the next Tuesday.

The minidump files include a bunch of different bug check strings and codes and a variety of "caused by" drivers. The bug check codes include 0x1000007E, 0xC2, 0x9C, 0x50, 0x3B, and others. I've attached a .zip of the last 10 minidumps. By far, the most common "caused by" is ntoskrnl.exe.

The recurring theme about these crashes is that they all seem to happen when I'm writing files to a mapped drive. It's hardly deterministic too. I wrote a batch script that writes a small text file to any one of my network drives, sleeps for a half second, and does it again. Sometimes, the script will write 100 times before crashing. Sometimes, it get through 8 iterations. I should point out that this is caused by any network drive, and it makes no difference whether or not the server is running Linux or Windows.

I've tried replacing the network card in the PC, thinking perhaps there was something funky going on there, to no avail. I've also done multi-day passes (Friday evening to Monday morning a few times) with Memtest86 with no ... Read more

A:XP x64 BSOD Writing to Mapped Drive?

I read the minidumps in your first Zip file. Two were unreadable due to corruption. The other three are helpful in finding a cause for your issues.

One error is 0x0000007E: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
A system thread generated an exception which the error handler did not catch. There are numerous individual causes for this problem, including hardware incompatibility, a faulty device driver or system service, or some software issues.

The other two errors are 0x000000C2: BAD_POOL_CALLER
A kernel-mode process or driver incorrectly attempted to perform memory operations. Typically, a faulty driver or buggy software causes this.

All three cite the same driver as causing your issues: Prot6Flt.sys. It took some digging to find out what it is because there is almost nothing online concerning this driver but it belongs to your Panda security software.

I have a friend with an issue that I think you can all help with, whoever bites this one first.

Recently his computer suffered a virus attack during a adobe flash player upgrade. Suspecting it piggy backed on that but I wasn't on site then.

When I looked at it today it BSOD'd. I didn't have the chance to get the error at the time so i'll be sure to get that the second I can. I think I'll focus on the were's and what for's.

The virus hit a 1 tera drive he recently put in to max out space. It's been working for months. He has about a gajillion games on his computer and runs pretty much all (Vindictus, Blockland, Eve Online, oh me ) Everything worked fine until his adobe incident. AVG apparently detected it but he either wasn't careful enough or smart enough to act on it right away. His computer restarted on the adobe download a few minutes after AVG cried foul.

After the restart BSOD. I went out there today and we tried pulling the drive since Windows is on his other drive. Boom problem solved. I really don't want to chuck a big drive like that into the can and I'm worried his other drive is infected. I have no clue when the payload on this drops but signs are pointing to immediately.

Yesterday night,while I was sitting on my laptop,a BSOD appeared and the computer restarted.After the comp restarted,I could reach till the "Windows is Starting page" and then another BSOD and the comp again restarted and so on.

When I went to startup repair,there was no Operating system to repair.It told me to "Load Drivers".
Then I tried using my win7 cd and on startup when I booted it up,at the after the "Custom Install" page where you choose on which partition to install to,and even there,there were no partitions and it told me to "Load mass storage drivers".

I searched around a bit and found out that it is something to do with SATA harddrives and IDE's and Bios's.

Since then I've tried nearly everything but to no avail.
I am not a n00b and I've solved many problems myself but this time I'm at a total loss

I had Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

HP Pavilion dv6-3142se Entertainment Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)
THIS is my laptop,its been just over a month since I bought it.

1) My laptop doesnt have any option in the Bios about SATA and IDE's (hp's newer laptops have stopped giving that option i read somewhere)

2) I checked the Drivers on the hp site and downloaded the chipset (i think it might be useful) and intel storage driver. I even went to the Intel driver site to find something similar.I put all of those on a USB drive and extracted all those that could... Read more

A:BSOD and then cant recognize hard drive

Good news!
I installed Ubuntu on a portable drive and it picked up my HD!
as you can see its a Hitachi,not a Toshiba (sorry)

Now the thing is,I had 4 drives.
A Music
B Movies
C Windows 7
E Setups misc etc
The C drive was 169 gb and everything is in it.
But it seems like the A and B partitions have been added into E.
My E partition was around 50 gb,A was 70 and B was around 200.
All of those have been added up to give me 331 GB. The files from partition E are still there,but the files from A and B are not there.

After going into this drive,you can see that now it shows only 50 gb (which was the size of the original E drive). The Music and Movies partition is missing/hidden.

My guess is that they still exist,but are hidden.
Heck,even in Windows 7 after doing a clean install,I could see my C and E drive but couldnt see my A and B ones.
So I went into Administrative tools and then into Disk Management and the partition was still there and I only had to assign a drive letter to them and then they appeared on My Computer.
I think its because by default you can only see the C,D,E,F drives and you have to 'unhide' or re-assign the other drive letters.
So any help about this :S?

Also now you must have seen the sata storage controller and hard drive model,so can someone point me to a driver please!?!

Hey all,

I have been pulling my hair out over this hopefully someone can help. This problem is pretty complicated so I will just start at the beginning and describe everything.
First my motherboard is a gigabyte x58a-ud3r. It has a i7-930 in it, not over clocked at the stock settings. It has 6gb of ram (right now, it should have 12 but I have taken out 3 sticks cause I thought that might have been the issue)

Recently my hard drive which was a hitachi deskstar crashed on me, it wont boot, even a clean format makes it keep restarting or giving me the bootmgr missing error which even after i use the windows disc to do repair it still is in a restart loop.

Anyways so I ordered a new hard drive from amazon, the seagate st2000dm001 barracuda 7200rpm 2tb sata 6gb/s.

The drive arrived today, I put in my windows 7 install dvd and it formatted the drive and installed windows 7 just fine. Then I was doing updates and it did it, it was like 66 updates or something as far as I remember and it had to restart.

Right here when it restarted is when the trouble began. It now is just restarting non stop, goign to the verfying dmi data and restarting. I cant get it to boot in safe mode, not while using the windows 7 install dvd.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

(tl;dr : New Hard drive, installed windows, did updates, now the hard drive is just restarting nonstop)

A:New Hard Drive , getting BSOD 0x0F4

Hello Pandu1986 Welcome to the Seven Forums!

The first few steps to look into would be booting live from the 7 dvd and going into the repair tools. The first option would be the Startup repair tool on the top of the list. Typically that help resolve fixable startup problems.

The second option there after running the Startup repair tool a few times if necessary and still not getting anywhere would be scheduling the Disk Check tool from the command prompt option. "chkdsk /r" is the command with the repair switch added.

Your last option since this is fresh install failing on you would be to simply wipe the drive entirely including the present primary for a second fresh start. For that you would take your time as far as any updates just getting the basics running one at a time since you likely saw a bad install of one or more updates.

The drive itself could be the problem as another thought while this is often a sofware/OS related issue. Since this is being seen with a totally new drive out of the box you still can't rule that out however as being the cause.

As far as OS drives generally a smaller size for a single OS primary is also advised since 7 has problems with 2tb and larger primaries as far as being used for the OS. 2tb and larger are best left as storage/backup type drives.
