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

Since the recent November update I have been getting BSOD about once a day, with the following Notification
 
Driver IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL (dxgmsl.sys)
 
What puzzles me about this (not that I know much about it anyway) is that when I restart the computer  it is not the © Drive that is scanned / repaired but the (D) Drive, an integral SD Memory Card. The © Drive has the OS, on (D) are mainly apps / programs, documents, media. Has this anything to do with the fact that I have used the new option to move apps from © to (D)? Are not the drivers on the © Drive with the OS?
 
Can someone explain, after which I will see if I can follow the procedure for submitting request for BSOD help if that is the thing to do.

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)"

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, 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:

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

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

It seems like a driver conflict (classpnp.sys) assuming that DV is fully compatible with XP, it is not enough to disable CIS because of the background processes.

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

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?

Hi all ,

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.

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.

I have a Windows 7 laptop (11 months old) and have had no trouble until last week when i tried to download the new IOS 4.2 for my Ipad.I left the PC running, and downloading the file fine, but when i returned, the screen was black with a message saying disk cable loose, no bootable options

I rebooted the PC, and now every time i try to download a file from the internet that is bigger than a couple of MB, it crashes to a BSOD. The hard drive has started to click slightly when i am downloading/installing files/programs.

Can anyone help please?

Cheers

Billy

A:BSOD & Clicking Hard Drive

Clicking HDD is not good, get it back where you bought it while it's under warranty.

You probably have lost all data too, hope it's backed up, same thing happened to me and l started to back up after that.

Good luck

John

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.

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!!!
1-Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

Hello.
I have Windows 8 installed on my SSD and I thought I'd plug in my HDD as well. I started up the PC, the HDD was found and there were no problems.
But it only took about 5 minutes and I got a BSOD. I don't know if this had to something to do with the HDD or if it might be due to something else.
Earlier I also recieved an error message when shutting the pc off, I don't know exactly what it said. Something about Memory...
Perhaps you'll find somehing in the logs as I have no idea what to look for.
It's strange that I've had two problem like this after only hours with Windows 8, while I cannot remember ever having a BSOD in Windows 7.
I would really appreciate any help! Thank you in advance!

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.

Hello baobab. Welcome to Seven Forums.

DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID: WIN7_DRIVER_FAULT

PROCESS_NAME: System
BCCode x50 generally refers to Faulty Ram.
RAM test with Memtest86+
Certain Bug Check Codes(BCCodes) or combination of BCCodes, are indicative of faulty RAM. Memtest86+ is an offline program specifically written to test RAM and uncover errors. Memtest86+ tries to verify that the RAM will accept and correctly retain arbitrary patterns of data written to it, and that there are no errors where different bits of memory interact, and there are no conflicts between memory addresses. Memtest86+ is open source, which means it is free to use.

Systems may have one or more sticks of RAM. These individual sticks are called DIMM. If Memtest86+ finds ANY errors, most likely, you have defective RAM. There are some cases where the DIMM slot, themselves, can be bad.

**Important!**
Should you receive any errors during the tests, stop the test. You will need to test each stick independently in each DIMM slot. Follow proper ESD Safety! Remove all but the first stick. Resume testing. If you receive(or dont) errors, note on a piece of paper that DIMM 1 failed(or passed) in Slot A1. Stop the test, move the stick to slot A2, resuming testing and taking notes in this manner, until all DIMMs have been tested in all DIMM sl... Read more

Hi all, I have a Dell XPS 15 (L502X) with Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) and I just recently had to replace the hard drive, it's only been a year or year and a half. The past few days I've been getting random system failures...the system just shuts off without warning. Upon booting up, Windows Problem Reporting reports a BSOD with BCCode 7a. Research confirms this is most definitely a hard drive issue, where there are bad sectors or a damaged drive.

According to HDSentinel, my HD Health is only 76%!! I'm wondering if it would be worth it to run a full surface check and full disk check with HDSentinel. It will take 12-24 hours to complete both..as I have a 1TB hard drive.. and I will lose all of my data...but it's either that or buy a new hard drive for $120.

My question is: would it be worth it to try and save the hard drive? Or, is it too far gone, with only 76% health? Also, what might cause such a drastic change in the HD Health? The laptop hasn't had any sudden shocks, hits, or anything, but all of the sudden I am getting 4-5 BSOD's per day, all 7a. S.M.A.R.T. status is OK, but obviously the drive is having issues. I ran dskchk on C:/ and it didn't help.. would SeaTools possibly be able to save it? It's a Seagate drive. I'd just like some outside opinions--I've worked on computers for years but I've never had to/wanted to save a dying hard drive. I've heard it's possible to repair damaged drives using tools ...

Hello,
Background info:
I was surfing (IE 11?)the web to find a free stream of an nba game, clicked a link and had several screens flash up saying stuff needed to be updated, X'ed out of two, did alt f4 on one. As i was trying to terminate the popups, screen immediately tore apart, BSOD, and the machine rebooted by itself. Upon reboot, no boot drive was found according to the black screen at start up, this occurred several times, we quickly unplugged the ethernet cable and shut the computer down and unplugged the other hard drives in the computer.
With only the dvd drive and the c boot drive plugged in, I restarted the computer and I inserted Windows 7 Ultimate disk and was unable to repair anything but did manage to restore a previous restore point from around September 13, 2013. System will boot but is acting strange and looks like its stripped. Desktop icons are gone, black wall paper and Norton is missing. I have not plugged the other hard drives back in at this time, so I don't know if documents are missing or corrupt at this point.
I did renew Norton in April 2014, so maybe that has something to with it, since the restore point is before the new version of Norton.
At this point, I'm guessing doing the restore was a mistake.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Gary

If this crash pertains to a driver, please note that I installed the latest Graphics Driver and it was really buggy. So I reverted back to my old Graphics driver.

Greetings helpful people

I'm having issues with blue screens of death, They seems to happen at random wherever i use the PC or if it's idle.

The 2 most common errors I'm getting is.

Process was unable to read data, or so
and a kernel read error.

Both seems to be related to the drive some sorts.

Furthermore, after bsod have rebooted my computer, i get the start up message that no valid boot drive is available and to enter bios to set one up.

After physically cutting to power to the PC and turning it back on, it finds it fine again and boots without problems, .. until next time.

What i have done:
I have followed all the steps as provided in This article
I have checked the cables
Have done a memory test with windows memory diagnostics

What i haven't done:
upgraded firmware of the drive

Observations:
When trying to reinstall windows it list the none boot drive first. (no idea if this matter)

I'm running a 2 drive setup, one SSD for OS and certain games and programs, and a larger drive for storage, documents, picture, downloads and other big files.

I had pretty much the exact same issue with my old motherboard and CPU.
