BSODs recurring after a few months with few or none

Q: BSODs recurring after a few months with few or none

Back in May I went through quite a few rounds of troubleshooting here for BSOD's that had been occurring. (Search for my previous threads to see that.) I ran memtest for 8 hours and had no errors, updated a bunch of drivers, etc. Since then I have had almost no issues... until a couple of days ago. Now it seems suddenly I am getting BSOD's very frequently - sometimes multiple times a day. There is no obvious pattern as to what triggers them. Sometimes I am using Eclipse (Java IDE). Sometimes I am reading email on Outlook. Etc. I have attached the zip file with all the dumps from the very latest BSOD. I can attach others if needed. Perhaps someone here will see an issue that I can fix. Thanks!

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: BSODs recurring after a few months with few or none

First off, the G750 series has had some issues with video card problems (both with overheating and with failing cards). Stay aware of this while you're troubleshooting.

This device needs to have drivers installed:





Not Available PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8C3A&SUBSYS_119D1043&REV_04\3&11583659&0&B0 The drivers for this device are not installed.



This is most likely the Intel(R) Management Engine Interface Driver. Please download and install the latest, Win8.1 compatible version available from the Asus website.

Out of 6 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.
- dirt/dust/hair/fur/crud inside the case. Blow out the case/vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum as they can cause damage to the system)
- missing Windows Updates
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

The next to the last memory dump has Driver Verifier functions in the stack text. Have you been running Driver Verifier? If so, which settings did you use? If not, this could be a clue - the involved drivers seem related to networking.

Bluetooth drivers seem to be from before the release of Win8.1 Some bluetooth devices have problems with Win8 drivers in Win8.1 (BSOD's) - please update them to the latest, Win8.1 compatible version.

As this is most likely a low-level problem, we'll try to fix any potential 3rd party driver problems while we're looking at hardware issues. This way things will go much quicker for you. Once the potential 3rd party issues are addressed, then all that's left is hardware (and Windows).

In the list of drivers below, please look for updates for those highlighted in red. The last I looked there weren't any updates available - so don't be surprised if you don't find any.

Please note the drivers below that date from before the release of Windows 8.1 (17 Oct 2013) - check to see that each and every one is compatible w/Windows 8.1 (at the manufacturer's website). If not, you must either remove the device and it's software - or locate a Windows 8.1 compatible update on the web. Removing some drivers may make the system unstable - so if you're unable to find updates, post back for info on the one's that can/cannot be safely removed.

The drivers that are struckout don't have updates available (AFAIK).
DO NOT delete them, just leave them be.

Hi,

I've been having BSOD's for several months now and have have been trying to fix them all. Thus far I have identified and fixed a few of them (some driver issues and crashes from Avast!), but have been unable to fix one that continues to occur. Here are some of the things I have tried:
- Anti-virus scans & rootkit scans from several different programs. I don't think it is a virus.
- Memory tests w/ memtest86 and windows memory diagnostic tool - all clean.
- Updated Intel & Lenovo drivers; Windows 7 up to date.
- HD tests with SeaGate tools - clean; chkdisk and related HD tools - clean.

The following information may be relevant:
- I updated a Intel wireless driver on 11/20/2012 which may have caused the corresponding BSOD.
- BSOD's often occur while browsing the internet (note that I do spend a majority of my time on the internet, so this may not be a cause). I've had one when using ms word, and the most recent one occured while I was not interacting with my machine.
- The aswSP.SYS BSOD's should have been fixed with Avast's most recent patch
- Several months ago I reclaimed 30GB from my HD that used to be part of a Ubuntu partition. I used the windows partition tool to do so.
- Sometimes Windows reports incorrect size usage for the HD. For example, I deleted my temp files which Windows said was 12Gb, but windows indicated that I only gained 2Gb of space from this. Apparently this phenomena is due to some windows backup features.

I have had recurring blue screens for about 3 months now. They used to be rare and would only appear once every week or so. I was lazy and didn't pay much attention.
In the last month they have occurred all the time.

They can appear due to:
a) Playing a video game - the computer usually shuts down within 5 minutes of playing.
b) normal usage of the laptop - They can happen every 4 hours, or every 30 minutes.

Things i have to done to try and fix the problem:
a) re applied thermal paste
b) cleaned fans
c) reinstalled drivers
d) factory reset
e) ran memtest86, CHKDSK, and CPU diagnostic tools, with no errors.
f) scanned my computer for malware or viruses.

After factory resetting the computer, the blue screens have become constant, and as a side issue my computer can not shut down/sleep and becomes unresponsive after 20 minutes ( I am unsure if this is due to the factory reset or to the ongoing problem). When it is unresponsive, CPU usage is near 0.

My laptop is an Alienware m17x r4.

I admit, I was pretty stupid to let the blue screens go on for this long

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

A:Recurring BSOD and computer failure over the last few months.

Hello and welcome JReyn mate some basic queries first is the machine a laptop or desktop as the Alienware is listed as a laptop and your specs which need to be filled in please say a desktop.

System Info - See Your System Specs

Now how old is the machine/ and what do you do with it OC?? The last bug check comes up with a graphics issue but we need to know just what machine you mean and the memtest how many passes did you run it for because it requires at least 8 passes to get any results - good or bad.

Hi;

I signed up for Charter in March. Almost every day (with a few exceptions) I've had the same problem.

My Motorola SB6121 DOCSIS 3 modem is connected to a Medialink n-band router. Sometime in the morning (usually between 7am and 9am, the router loses the ability to see the modem. I can access the router's control panel, and I see 0.0.0.0 for WAN IP, Subnet Mask, and Gateway. Primary and Secondary DNS server are both blank. Connection Mode is Dynamic IP.

I lose the ability to access the modem's control panel directly (192.168.100.1), even though the PC I use is hardwired to the router. So, I unplug the modem, unplug the router, wait, plug in the modem, plug in the router, and everything works again.

I've had more than twelve service calls. Every Charter tech looks at the line, puts in boosters, takes out boosters, replaces splitters, and seems to only look at signal. I've BEGGED Charter to let me speak to an engineer, because my suspicion is that it's something to do with the DHCP server.

I did, by the way, replace EVERYTHING. I have had 5 different modems...same problem. I have had 5 different routers...same problem, including a modem/router combo. I've tried different brands, too. I've disconnected all wifi devices from the router, and rebuilt my PC's operating system. I've even unplugged the refrigerator, because one Charter tech claimed it was "upstream noise."

A:Recurring loss of cable signal every day for five months

If you want to gather more information try with a computer--preferably running Windows--directly to the modem. By paying attention to the ipconfig /all you can monitor the lease time and see whether the problem is occurring when the lease should be renewed (at the mid-point of the lease period) or at the end of the lease period (which should never happen), or is just being renewed or a new IP assigned because the connection was lost. (I'm guessing the last one is what's happening, but it would be good to know.)

Ultra-simple "tutorial"--with Dhcp your ISP assigns an IP configuration to the device connected to the modem. The IP is good for a certain amount of time (the lease period) and it will be automatically renewed at the half way time if the device is connected. Many (most? all?) routers do not give this info, so that is why I suggested a computer.

Here is how to do an ipconfig /all; no need for you to post it, I'm just copying my canned post ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Good and Free system security combination.
Download and install the security setup of your choice, update the software, and then run a full scan of your system for viruses and malware. If you only install MSE, I would also suggest installing and updating Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download, but do not start the free trial/full version of Malwarebytes. Run a full scan with Malwarebytes after updating it. Post back the results.

Hi all,

Never tried using a forum before so please excuse me if I do something wrong.
I'm desperate.
I built this PC with a little help from a computer savant. He helped me chose the pieces and I put it together. It's about 15 months old. Recently it fried the main SSD from which the OS booted (after 11 months of use). It was of course my fault for filling the SSD more than 80% (I have no computer certifications, I go by instinct most of the time and then learn the hard way) ... so it wouldn't surprise me if I have something to do with the computer failing so much now.
I've also had the feeling that my system has never really ran at full potential.
I think my BIOS settings need seen to as well. It's all on "default", when I think they can be tuned according to the components... but I don't know how to do that

Anyway, I'll do my best to answer and follow the guide you provide;

? OS - Windows 7
? x64
? What was original installed OS on system? Nothing, I built the tower from scratch
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? No, pirated version of Windows Ultimate 7
? Age of system (hardware) 15 months
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? Twice, because fried the SSD in January-ish this year

Hey everyone, i've been having the same BSOD ever since I got my new computer in November last year.

After repeatedly getting the 'A clock interval was not recieved on a secondary processor' BSOD a million times, I decided to send my processor back to ebuyer who said it was faulty and sent me a new one. I've also reinstalled windows completely as well as take out all parts to clean them.

Unfortunately this still hasnt solved my problem out like i'd hoped. The bluescreens are less frequent but still a nuisance when I'm trying to do my university work. It also crashes randomly sometimes without a bluescreen error.

I found a post here and read about running my minidump files through Microsoft's debugger but the setup just failed so I find myself begging for someone to take a look at my minidump files and potentially find me an answer to this frustrating problem.

The crashes typically occur when doing very small tasks like clicking a button in 3DS max, links on firefox. It seems to happen when it's loading something within an application its more likely to crash. People i've spoke to about it think it could be the motherboard but i've updated the bios. I'll also include my system hardware in this post:

Intel Core i7 2600k 3.4GHz Socket 1155 8MB Cache
Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz CL9 1.5V Non-ECC Unbuffered

Run Memtest86 for at least 8 passes so we get enough information to confirm that your RAM isn't failing

Run a Disk Check to scan for errors



   Note

Afterwards go into an Elevated Command Prompt (Run as administrator) and type in sfc /scannow
If it finds errors reboot and run the scan two more times

Run SeaTools to see if your HDD or SSD is failing

Alright guys,

Hope you all can help me sort this out since it's driving me crazy. Back in December of 2011, I overhauled my gaming rig with a new power supply (750W Silverstone Strider Gold), a new CPU (Core 2 Quad Extreme 9650), a new video card (EVGA GTX570 Superclocked), a new audio card (Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty), an additional 2 x 2gb of G.SKILL DDR2 800 Pi RAM for a total of 8gb, and a new Corsair case (not that this should matter). The additional ram was matched with an older 2 x 2gb set of G.SKILL Pi RAM. According to the manufacturer, the only thing that was changed between the two sets was the heat spreader. Additionally, I'm running Vista Ultimate x64.

My machine hummed along awesomely for about 5 months. Then back in May of this year, I started getting random crashes in World of Warcraft and Battlefield 3. At first, I would just crash to the desktop, but then this devolved into total BSOD system crashes. The stop messages include the following: CACHE_MANAGER, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, IRQL_GT_ZERO_AT_SYSTEM_SERVICE, POOL_CORRUPTION_IN_FILE_AREA, INTERRUPT_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED.

A:Random BSODs for the last 4 months

Welcome
First we do not have any current dump reports, the most current is several months old, I do not know what happened to the most current dmp reports.
That being said, if I do not read any of your narrative, my first thought would be that this is a hardware problem. There is an ocassional reference to memory. That is all that your reports indicate.
Now based upon that information and the fact that using 4 sticks you had 1000 errors, I would conclude that this is a memory problem. In fact one failed memtest indicates memory problem and the sticks shold be changed.
My inclination is that your specific problem is that the 4 sticks do not play nicely together, which is often the case when you mix and match and do not buy all the sticks at once. The only thing that I can suggest from your post and the test results is that you test the machine using different ram.
This does not seem to be a problem that will be solved by reinstalling, Vista or any other OS.

Sorry for all the text and thanks for reading in advance.

BSODs are random, it can be just browsing chrome or in the middle of a game. I've attached my most recent dumps. Strange things that my computer does that are worth noting is random extensions crash on chrome, and sometimes chrome just closes at a random time and won't open back up until I restart my computer. Some games(overwatch is the most consistent in crashing but it's still random) randomly crash so I thought it might have been my video card, but I run Unigine perfectly fine with alright temperatures in the max settings. Also when chrome crashes sometimes when I go to restart my computer that's when I'll get a bluescreen. Just before I started writing this my chrome closed so I had to restart and got the damn BSOD. Sometimes I will go to restart or shutdown and it just gets stuck on shutting down.

It's like sometimes I am certain that is has to be a driver, other times I am not sure at all, and then something else a little different will happen and then I'm certain it's hardware. I can't pin it down at all.

I'm on my 3rd set of ram, chkdsk and memtest both come back with zero problems. I want to list everything I've done but to be honest over the course of half a year, I can't even remember half of the things.

Counterfeit installations such as yours contained heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

0x101 BSoDs are by definition a hardware problem. It sounds like you're not overclocking, which is A Good Thing, but unfortunately that's far from the only reason why hardware might be broken.

There may be software problems too. Your \windows\minidump folder should contain a bunch of DMP files - one for each BSoD instance. If you copy a few of them out of that folder then zip 'em up and upload them here, people will jump at the chance to analyse them for you. Odd, isn't it?

It won't help with the hardware side of equation, but that approach is much, much better for software-caused crashes than attempting to guesstimate the culprit.

You have some outdated drivers, first please uninstall,and install the newest driver for ur graphic card (Ur nvidia driver is 8 months old)
If ur laptop have a factory update software use it to update everything!
Then ran a memtest RAM - Test with Memtest86+ to check ur ram health because ur minidump results points to memory corruption.
For the moment do the above and post back the results.
In meantime i will study more ur minidumps for more clues in what causes the bsod.

I have been having many recurring bluescreens upon boot (right after the LAN LED lights up from orange to white (which means network=on)) ever since I heavily gamed on Minecraft, having my laptop running 90?C for hours. That is when I got my first bluescreen. It was a few months ago.

After having read numerous threads online on my laptop's symptoms, I concluded that it is very likely a hardware problem - the GPU. Either it gets very hot and a bluescreen follows or it is physically damaged. That's what I think. I am not sure of this, so I will provide you with as much information as I can.

Here are the following symptoms I summed up during my long experience:

Symptoms:

- the copper heatsink is extremely hot to the touch
- sometimes safe mode won't load and stays stuck at the driver listing, with a garbled pink, green and light blue line of mixed colors on top of the screen
- Bluescreenview used to show all the bluescreens, but now it shows none - even if I hit 'refresh'. It might have to do with me recently enabling Test Mode in Windows 7 (Disable Driver Signing Enforcement; I don't remember if I used an app for that as well)
- the loading hourglass icon freezes every time I reboot from safe mode with networking, but it does reboot. The GUI just doesn't update.

A little over a month ago I began getting blue screens infrequently. This was the first time in years I'd blue screened, so I wrote it down - 03/13/10. This ramped up to a couple a day. Instead of asking for help then, I reinstalled windows (7, 64 bit), and lost my dump files. This didn't solve the problem, although they occurred infrequent enough for me to stop caring too much. They're back in numbers!

The blue screens began a couple of weeks prior to me updating my mobo, CPU and RAM. I also upgraded my graphics card from an nVidia 8800GT to an ATI 5850 last Monday (04/19), and noticed a new blue screen started appearing then. Since I installed the 5850 blue screens have been pointing at specific files. Prior to this they had not pointed to anything, at least in the blue screen itself.

While I'm not the most technically literate person, I've certainly become moreso in trying to fix this problem - but to no avail! So I look to you guys. Thanks!

Hi, I have been getting BSODs here and there for a very long time now, but I've ignored them since they didn't happen too often and they always seemed to happen in the same circumstances - which I've come to try and avoid. However, I started playing Diablo 3 today (at least on this computer, I've played on another computer), and I got 3 BSODs in roughly one hour of gameplay.

I tried following the BSOD posting instructions but the BSOD_Windows7_Vista_v.2.64_jcgriff2_.exe scan gets stuck at Waiting for SystemInfo for a really long time (I let it run for about 20-25 minutes and it was still stuck there, whereas the instructions page says it shouldn't take more than 10 minutes. Am I doing something wrong?). Since the thread is locked, I figured I'd ask my question right away and we'd start by getting the scan done, right?

Thanks in advance!

Hello all. I've been getting blue screen crashes for months (a check in my event viewer shows they started around January). Only recently did I decide enough was enough and to start looking into them.

Primarily, they manifest as STOP 0x109 errors, but there have also been a couple 0x1e errors and a few others show up once. I tried to enable driver verifier, as my research led me to believe that this was a driver error modifying the windows kernel. However, every time I tried to enable it and reboot, I would get a 0xc9 error. I found the erroneous driver that was causing this issue and deleted it, but upon digging back into the original repeated 0x109 errors I kept coming across the following in WinDbg:

"BugCheck 109, {a3a039d8a54ad540, 0, b266a988baa6cd90, 101}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt+76e80 )"

A quick google search yielded that this is the NT Kernel Multiprocessor, and that this showing up is something of a red herring - that is to say, it's an inconclusive cause for the issue. So, I'm hoping someone can help me out and point me in the right direction to determine what hardware is causing this issue (as I am now fairly certain it's a hardware issue, since it's not a specific driver being returned).

Thanks in advance, and please let me know if there is any information I neglected.

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.

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?

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!!!

It was kind of a curve ball, and a little unsettling, because I thought I had solved the problem. I think I've narrowed it down to my graphics card, since a lot of the recent BSODs point to it, but I'm not sure if it's because the drivers are bad, or if the card itself is bad (it's an Nvidia, and I thought that those cards are able to withstand gaming for several years, so I'm a little disheartened if it's a bad card).

Specs:
OS: Windows 7
x64
The original installed OS was Windows 7, I think (this is a used laptop)
My OS is a full retail version
Hardware around 4 years old
The OS was re-installed 6-8 months ago.

CPU: Intel Core i7 Q720 @ 1.6 GHz
Video card: Nvidia GeForce GTS 360M
Motherboard: I'm not sure, but I assume it's the original Asus version?
Power supply: Asus N193 85V
System Manufacturer: Asus
Model Number: G60JX
I'm hoping that this is maybe a driver problem, and not something serious like a defective card or maybe faulty RAM.

Thank you for reading this!

Hello NocturnalSleep,

Various differemt bugchecks but they're all pointing to your GPU drivers of DirectX one way or another. I'd recommend uninstalling and reinstalling your nVidia video drivers and reinstalling the latest version. If you're already on the latest version, I'd recommend uninstalling and installing a previous version to the latest to be sure it's not a simple driver issue.

A little history, I've never had problems with my computer for over a year now. It's only been recently, as in 3 to 4 months ago, that I've started to get blue screens. At first it wasn't a big problem, then I started to get them more frequently after another month. I thought it was my RAM, so I purchased new RAM, Corsair Vengeance 8GB. I stopped blue screening for a while, then the intensity and frequency of the blue screens went through the roof, literally skyrocketed. I couldn't go a day without getting at LEAST 3 to 4 blue screens. I changed my RAM back to the pair I was using before, and I don't blue screen not nearly as much as I did.

I've been having BSODs since I built my system nine months ago, and I'm at a complete loss as to what's wrong. Just recently I RMA'd my motherboard as a last-ditch attempt at a fix because I couldn't find anything wrong. Every blue screen is an IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error. My device drivers are all up to date. My BIOS is up to date. I've run about 20 memtests and all come back clean. I've run diagnostics on my hard drives and all come back clean.

I got my motherboard back from the manufacturer in the beginning of December. My first blue screen after that was yesterday, after I used Registry Booster to clean my registry. I restored the files since I'd hoped that I'd removed something accidentally. I just received a second one about a half hour ago. I reset, and the system hung when Windows was trying to load. I reset again, got the message that Windows didn't start normally and the system hung at the 27 second countdown to choose how to load Windows. I did a hard shut down, booted, and it appeared to boot normally.

I did have a backup motherboard I used while my current one was being repaired, and during that time I had three Kernel error blue screens. After the third, the system did an automatic Disk Check on reboot and I didn't have one after that. Granted, I was only using that motherboard for about a month.

Hi all,

I've been having trouble with BSODs for some time now. I have no idea of the cause, as WhoCrashed gives either vague information or blames my webcam (weird?), and I would like to see if someone can point me in the right direction before I start re-installing Windows 7. This isn't because I can't be bothered to re-install it, it's only because I'm half way through a musical project which requires this PC, and much of what I need to finish the project is a little bit hit and miss on the software side of things - VSTs and plugins are routed all over the place and I don't wanna mess stuff up.

WhoCrashed has given me two reasons for the BSODs: my Logitech c920 webcam; and a kernel driver issue. I've attempted to reinstall and webcam drivers and it seems to have made no difference.

I've attached the necessary dump file which is detailed on the "how to" page for this forum.

Hi everyone,

I am currently having problems with my video card and seemingly with the drivers.

This all started a few weeks ago when my computer crashed at some point (wasn't there when it happened), and when rebooting would always go directly to BSOD. I tested the memory as well as the hard drive and everything seemed fine, therefore I started suspecting the video card. I had to buy an additional video card to test this as my motherboard does not have any video ports. This confirmed instantly that the problem was indeed coming from there.

I contacted my manufacturer for an RMA but they told me this was a driver problem. I reinstalled the driver and it indeed resolved the problem.

Then it happened again today. Basically the screen started flashing weird black and white patterns (sound was still working) and then went to the same BSOD. I will try resolving it the same way as earlier, but this isn't really ideal as I need to switch the video card every time.

Does any one have any idea what might cause this? I would like to stop this error from happening at all, or if not somehow prove that this is a hardware issue so I can RMA my video card.

The BSOD is : PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA. It happens just before getting to windows login screen (there is a blue screen with "Please wait..." displayed). It happens every single time, I cannot boot at all Windows, not even in safe mode while this video card is connected.

Hi, first time poster here.
About six months ago I built my first custom PC, and everything was working excellently until yesterday. I received my first ever BSOD, and my computer restarted automatically. Every boot since then I have been able to access Windows for less than five minutes before another blue screen shows up. (only if I am running programs etc., if left idle no BSOD occurs)

I have not recently installed any new hardware, and curiously, I can no longer access any networks. Windows firewall is disabled, with the error "windows firewall can't change some of your settings. Error code 0x8007042c" when I try to reactivate. Malwarebytes claims it's database is corrupt and will not run.

Most blue screens have been "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT" errors, STOP 0x1A. I also think one referenced the file NTFS.SYS as the cause of the error.

I cannot complete sfc /scannow or chkdsk ("cannot continue in read only mode" for chkdsk, even on elevated command prompt) without a blue screen occurring. They also occur in Safe Mode.
I have run the SF diagnostics tool and the results should be attached.

Thanks in advance.

The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes. *Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot. *If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.

A:Recurring BSODs at boot

I suggest that you contact the video card manufacturer to RMA the card. Tell them that you have tried various versions of the driver and doing so did not help.

Regards. . .

jcgriff2

p.s. For info - PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA is bugcheck 0x50 and basically means that a driver referenced invalid memory. This would be true if the hardware platform was stable. Yours is not. Unless you're a driver developer writing a new driver, bugcheck 0x50 appears when there is an unknown hardware failure. In other words, I cannot say with 100% certainty that the video card is the culprit, but based on your testing, it sure seems to be.

For years my asus laptop is giving me bsods. I've tried everything - hardware check (everything is ok, says the service, memory was tested for 12 hours - also ok). I've updated every driver using multiple software (driver navigator, driver detective, etc.).
Tried rerolling nvidia driver for no avail. Still bsods.
Tried windows 7, 8 and now 8.1 - every one of them had bsods. I started to think it is an asus driver problem, so installed everything with pure windows drivers - only used 2-3 asus driver, where nothing else worked.

Now I don't know what to do: seemingly everything is ok, hardware and drivers, still I get constant crashes, sometimes 2-3 a day...
Please help me, I'm loosing hair here...
Thank you in advance.

Hello everyone,
I installed openVPN recently to channel my traffic through a virtual private network. I've been using it in conjunction with other p2p software. The problem seems to reoccur heavily when I'm on p2p (Vuze, then utorrent). I uninstalled Vuze shortly after it caused heavy BSODs. uTorrent has been a bit forgiving, but I noticed the system restarted earlier while I was away from the computer.

Now, I'm not sure if the root of the problem is due to openVPN or p2p. The system is stable while I'm on the VPN using openVPN and doing other tasks (browsing, etc). I've had about 5-6 BSODs since yesterday, so I'm targeting the issue to be a recent outbreak in the system.
The BSODs so far (and as far as I know) have always occurred while I'm downloading and uploading via p2p. I haven't had the problem occur during other tasks. I've attached the system report as directed. I'd appreciate any help regarding this. Thank you.

A:Recurring BSODs after using openVPN

Dump analysis if that helps in identifying the problem. From what I've learned, this could be an issue relating to BitDefender.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

I bought a Novatech PC in December last year and after a month began getting BSODs firstly when playing Assassins Creed 3 and then with other new games such as Bioshock Infinite and Battlefield 3. There didn't seem to be any trigger within the games, just a random crash at random times - anything from 30 mins to several hours after starting to play. The only pattern was the games it crashed in and that, after the initial crash and restart, the PC would bluescreen very soon after loading up the game again.

The errors have included:
0x1A
0xD1
0x50 (most often)
0xA
0xBE
0x3B
0xF4
0x24

I've run disc checks, memory tests, GPU stress tests and all have come back negative. The only possible lead was running a CPU test in OCCT (Home) which causes a BSOD pretty quickly every time.

As the PC is still under warranty I also contacted Novatech who suggested I try removing the Creative X-Fi card and front panel as I added them from my old PC. This seemed to help reduce the number of BSODs but they did still occur, particularly in BF3. I've left the card in recently as it's the only way I can use my 5.1 speakers and the BSODs have been much worse - even occurring in Minecraft a couple of times and when I left War Thunder on idle on its menu for an hour or so.

I've attached my SF Diagnostic output below.

Any help would be great. Thanks!

Hello,

I've been getting an increasing number of BSODs recently. I haven't been able to spot any pattern in what triggers them, sometimes it can happen when I am afk with nothing of note running, sometimes when using something more demanding such as games. The error messages I get do not seem to be consistent. Sometimes it points to a driver or file such as ntfs.sys, or other. Sometimes a 'crucial thread' has stopped or it's just an unknown error.

I have run chkdsk and memory tests without finding a problem, but it still persists. I'd much appreciate some help in finding out what is behind it all. I've considered upgrading to Win 10 to see if that solves it, but I don't want to upgrade a broken system just to encounter more problems.

Thanks in advance,
Wightpants.

I really tried to be patient, but man.
It started out as a BSOD every few days or so, but now it's getting more and more frequent.

There's all kinds of BSODs, Kernel data inpage error, page default error, and so on. I've lost count on how many kinds I've went through. I even sent it in for warranty repair once, and it doesn't do anything at all. The trip to the nearest Acer Support Center will take me half a day, and I really just can't take it.

I'm at a loss. I leave it to you guys.

Oh, and the model of the laptop is Acer V3 571G 736B4G1T.
When I ran BlueScreenView, it seems that ndis.sys and ntoskrnl.sys show some sources of error.

Hi guys, my computer has been having blue screens for a while now. I don't remember exactly when it started, but I've been trying to fix it for about a month now. I cannot figure out what is causing it or how to go about fixing it. Everything I have done so far does not seemed to have helped at all.

The blue screens happen seemingly randomly. They happen every few hours, sometimes they can happen only minutes after restarting. I could be playing a game, idling at my desktop, or watching a video. I have gotten many different error messages from them as well.

I have done a fresh install of windows on my hard drive, and my ssd. I tested my ram for 8 cycles with no errors back. I swapped my video card with an older one, and I still got the same random blue screens after all of it.

Here are two previous forum posts outlining some of the things I have tried:

Random BSODS Multiple times per day. - Windows 7 Help Forums

I've attached a sysnative file dump that contains my most recent minidumps, and in those forums I have posted other dmCollections that contain past dump files. I've also attached an image of a temperature monitor, I don't know much about it but the temps seem to be pretty high.

Hi,
i had a few months without BDOS. But now they are back. I had some in January (about 4 the whole month). But today i had 4-5. I even had a pink one, which i have never seen before. I had one while booting and the last one was a few minutes ago. I recognized, that the Bluescreen was in bad resolution like only VGA mode or something. I need your help again
Its also mentionable that i cant udate my nvidea driver using the nvidea center. So i reinstalled the driver manually last month or so. But its up to date....
Another lue perhaps: Some Bluescreens didnt create a minidump...

I realy have no idea and would be very thankful if someone could help me. Thanks alot!!!!

It seems Gigabyte doesn't provide support for your motherboard, but there are some drivers that need updating like the nvidia audio and Gigabyte GBB36x Controller drivers.

Please update Driver Reference Table - t_mouse.sys

Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver.

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!

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.

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.
