Q: REFERENCE_BY_POINTER 0x00000018 whilst playing Trove/watching Netflix

This just started happening today. I had no issues of this sort yesterday when I updated my graphics card driver (system information is available through my profile, I made sure to fill that out).

As of about an hour ago, I've had two separate BSODs of the same type while playing a game called Trove (voxel based MMO on Steam) and watching shows on Netflix. I had no BSODs yesterday, or even for the past month, during which I am usually always playing Trove and watching Netflix.

Attached are the two dump files that were generated by the computer, zipped up by the log collector.

Let me know if I need to provide any other information and I'll try to provide it. I may not be available very quickly this week though, as I do work during the day.

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.)

looks like your graphics driver, try re-installing you drivers and maybe try a friend's card in case it is hardware and not software.

Hello and welcome Fathom King mate I can see some update problems so I think it might be worthwhile doing a system restore then advance the updates a few at a time and if the crashes start up you probably will be able to pinpoint the update that is the problem.

The other thing I think is worth a run are these

Hi guys, I have an Acer Aspire 5536 notebook which I bought last year in September. Ever since I've had a problem when playing flash games or watching YouYube videos.

The lag occurs every 40-60 seconds, the audio will continue uninterrupted where as the video will become extremely choppy for 5-10 seconds and then it will return to it's normal state, now this doesn't just apply to flash apps, this also happens when I play Trackmania Nations or any other game.

On another note, my laptop gets extremely hot, I've been using HWmonitor to check the temperatures and my CPU has hit a max of 96 celcius. Currently I'm running Google chrome with 1 tab open and I have Windows Live Messenger running too and both cores of the CPU are reading at 70 celcius. I've read up about this and once it reaches a certain temperature the CPU throttles it's self to prevent further damage, although I'm thankful this happens, it renders my laptop practically unusable.

Has anyone else experienced any of this before and is there anything I can do about it?

Thanks in advance!

Hello, this is a very recent problem (started less then a week ago) that Ive been having on a custom build pc that has been running flawlessly for years, the only recent hardware change was a new GPU around february.

I started getting BSOD, mostly while playing FIFA or while watching netflix last week. Eventually I formatted and instaled windows 7 (ultimate 64 bit) again but the error persisted even on the new format, eventually I started getting BSOD on boot and even on safe mode (diferent bsod errors: irql, memory management and others) so I RE formatted and installed the least amount of things possible and that ran flawlessly for two days (I played lots of games, watched lots of netflix to test it and it seemed fine) I thought the problem was fixed.

Today I was playing FIFA 15 and I got a new BSOD (IRQL LESS NOT EQUAL). Throughout this whole process I have made sure I have the latest GPU drivers, I installed new motherboard drivers on this format, I ran mem test 86 and the windows memory diagnostic and both of them showed me no errors. I am completely stumped.

BUILD:
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 945
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX 950
Mother: ASUS m4a79xtd
4 GB RAM

I have attached the dump file and the DM log collector, thanks in advance for any help!

Hello and welcome !
The majority of the dumps are showing signs of a driver misbehaving, mostly with association
to Steam, WarZ and AVG.
Please remove AVG and all of it's extensions mainly the toolbar (in each browser),
I suggest you use Microsoft Security Essentials instead.

For how many passes did you allow memtest to go through?
The following quote describes the best course of action right now, in great detail .

But if it starts showing errors, Stop testing. Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

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

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 there,
I would be very grateful of any help you could give me to resolve this problem. I am new to your forums but have read several replies to other peoples posts in an attempt to find a way solve my own, to no avail. (some of what you have suggested is way over my head)
For a few weeks when I shut down the PC it takes ages to shut down, or has to be manually turned off because its clear it isn't going to shut down properly on its own.
The other day my elderly neighbour who doesn't have a computer said her niece had mailed her via my computer with some information she wanted. When I opened the mail there was a .pdf file attached, which I opened, and looked at, shortly afterwards I was looking on the John Lewis website for my neighbour and my PC froze completely. The mouse wouldn't move, and I couldn't Ctrl+Alt+Del, toggle out or do anything but a hard restart. Once I had rebooted, I ran an AVG scan, and it found no threats. The PC worked fine for a few hours, and then when I ran World of Warcraft later that evening, after playing for a short while it froze again. The music still plays in the back ground, but the game froze, and again, couldn't toggle out, or Alt+f4 or Ctrl+Alt+Del. Over the next couple of days it crashed like this again around 6 or 7 times.

Hello,

I first experienced a BSOD whilst streaming Netflix roughly 2 weeks ago, I thought it might of been due to new software I had installed that day so I did a system restore and everything had been fine until today. Again while I was streaming Netflix I got another BSOD. I should say that I'm not actually seeing a blue screen, instead my monitor simply goes black and I hear a loud sound coming from my headset, however when using BlueScreenView it does note that a blue screen occurred.

I don't think the problem is due to RAM as I recently replaced it due to having issues about a month ago, I ran a memtest on the new RAM after installing it and received no errors after almost 24 hours of testing.

Unfortunately I don't think I'm able to provide the .dmp file from the initial BSOD as using system restore seems to have removed it from the minidump folder, however I have attached the .dmp file from today.

I also ran a virus scan after the first BSOD and nothing came up, I'm using Windows Security Essentials but ran the virus scan using Malware Bytes.

Let me know if there is any other information I can provide.

Thank you for your help.

A:BSOD Whilst Watching Youtube Video, After Watching Tumblr Video.

Quote:
"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps Let us know if you need help

A:Watching Netflix on old crt tv

I'm about to get a cable broadband connection into my house and don't know how to hook up my old Sony trinitron tv up so I can watch Netflix. Also need a wifi router.Are you looking to hook up a computer? Or are you looking to use ANY device to hook to the TV to watch Netflix?If you are talking about the latter, then there are number of devices that will hook to an old CRT TV by way of a standard composite (i.e. yellow "RCA" jack) or maybe even an S-Video jack since your CRT Trinitron TV likely does not have HDMI or component (red-green-blue RCA jacks). If nothing else, Wii can hook up to CRT TVs and you can watch Netflix through your Wii. Also, older Roku devices (but not the Roku 3 it appears) can hook up to older analog connectors and they offer a Netflix "channel".If you are talking about a computer, then you will either need a graphics card that support output to a composite video connection or you will need a converter that will go from VGA to composite (or S-Video) or even DVI/HDMI to composite (or S-Video).If you clarify what you specifically want to do, then I might be able to provide more specific guidance. Also, it would help if you listed what specific input connections you have on the TV and if you want to use a computer, what specific output options you have on the computer (i.e. brand/model of computer).

Got a BSOD when watching Netflix so it's probably my display driver because it always is lol. Although it started out with a freeze up of my PC and mouse then a BSOD then once the PC restarted, windows were configuring updates before it got to the login screen so that's different. I don't see any updates that I can find that were installed when this happened. Tried windows update history but last one installed was a few days ago. So the updates installed today must be listed somewhere. I still have the display driver the windows updates gave me about a month ago. I'm not going to bother getting a new one from amd.com because I always have trouble whenever I try a new one from there. I think it's because my PC needs a catalyst version and not one from crimson. I used to have catalyst and had less (almost none) problems with it.

Sorry but I don't have a minidump file to post. There's a folder "minidump" but it's empty for some reason and the date modified was from January so I guess the file caused by the BSOD never made it there this time like it usually does. I hope that's a good sign! My system shut down on me one time not long ago and guess what I was doing? Watching Netflix! I guess it has to do with the fan or something getting too hot.

Hi.
I have a one month old, 64bit OEM Dell Studio 1558 Laptop, and in the past few days it has BSoD'ed twice whilst watching youtube videos.

The BSoD goes too fast for me to write anything down, so how am I to record what it's showing?

At the time I didn't really have anything else open. I had firefox open with youtube on one tab and a forum on the other. I haven't tested watching videos on any other site other than youtube. Any idea what's causing this problem?

I have tried two kits of ram (the first showed errors, which is why I switched, but I guess that didn't fix it)
I am also using a new gpu since the first crashes started, and the motherboard is only 1 month old.

Ignore the 0x119 bugcheck, this was caused by a poorly coded application.


So ruling out ram, gpu, mobo, and OS installation, what could be causing this?
All bsods occurred while watching Netflix, and I run my browsers in sandboxie.
Since this is a privilege error most likely, and sandboxie intercepts the kernel to keep my system secure, could this be the cause?
I will not uninstall sandboxie, don't waste your time suggesting it.
Just want to know if it's a possibility.

I had a few things running in background, including mIRC, l33tsig, MSE, and Daemon tools. Was streaming a film on Netflix, using Chrome browser. First BSOD I've had while on Windows 7. I had reinstalled Windows on January 4th, 2012. I do a clean reinstall about once a year. I don't recall the error code I got with this BSOD, sorry about that, perhaps it's in the report I'm attaching? Computer seems fine now, but it is disconcerting, using Windows 7 for quite some time now, completely stable up until last night.

Occasionally I will be watching a video or Netflix movie and sometimes it just stops streaming and makes a loud noise which continues until I have to manually shutdown the computer. I've even just tried closing the video or movie but it will not allow me - it just freezes accompanied with the loud noise.

Is there something I can do to fix this occasional problem?
 

A:Watching Netflix or Video online

It's possible that your computer is overheating and the loud noise you hear is the CPU fan revving up in an attempt to cool the CPU. Without knowing anything about your system it's impossible to say for sure.

Hello everyone,

I recently had a BSOD while watching Netflix. I did a little research of my own, and it looks like it is my Intel Graphics controller that had the problem.

PC-FUNEBRE-14_08_2015_142106,13.zip

I tried to update the driver automatically through Windows,but it told me it was already up to date. I then downloaded this driver : win64_153623.exe (version 10.18.14.4251) and tried to install manually, but I received an error that this file was not valid for my computer.

I also tried to use the Intel "manage drivers" utility, but it did not detect any drivers on my system.

Could you give me a few tips for solving this problem ? Thank you very much !

For reference I an running Windows 8.1 with all critical updates, Intel Graphics 4600 + Nvidia GTX 860M, 8Go Ram, Core i7.

Hello,

I was wondering if someone here could help me out. I've been having various BSOD's whilst watching gaming streams on twitch.tv. The BSOD's do not happen on launch, but after the stream has been playing for some time. They also ONLY happen whilst watching a stream. They do not occur doing any other memory intensive activity. I'm a bit perplexed why this is happening.

I've used a program called BlueScreenViewer to look into the problem. I've had the following error messages:
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (3 BSOD's).
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (2 BSOD's).
KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (1 BSOD).
BAD_POOL_HEADER (1 BSOD).

Apparently all of these BSOD's have been caused by ntkrnlpa.exe (NT Kernel & System) and halmacpi.dll (Hardware Abstraction Layer DLL).

I've also ran a program called memtest86 3 days ago. This actually did pick up on many memory errors during Test #6, the Block Test. I then proceeded to remove what I thought was the faulty memory. Memtest86 then passed the Block Test. I thought the problem had been resolved, as I had not received a BSOD at all following this. However, I have just now received yet another BSOD 3 days later and it seems the problem has returned.

EDIT: I have just ran memtest86 once again. The errors have now returned. I got 6000 errors on Test #6 (Block Move Test), 3000 errors on Test #8 (Random number sequence) and 1 error on Test #9 (Modulo 20, Random pattern).

I've attached the minidump files.

Any ideas?

A:BSOD whilst watching Twitch.tv streams

The dump files are irrelevant at this moment in time if you are getting errors in Memtest86.

You'll need to swap your RAM sticks around to determine whether or not it's the RAM sticks or motherboard DIMM slots.

If the output is like this then you have bad RAM so the stick(s) need replacing.

TestSlot 1Slot 2RAM 1ErrorErrorRAM 2GoodGood
If the output is like this then you should replace the motherboard, however you can leave that DIMM slot empty although it's not advised to use a system with a faulty motherboard.

Hey Guys,

I would very much appreciate a little help on a problem I am experiencing with video playback on my laptop. Here are some specs, if you need more just search for the model number or ask.

HP Pavillion dv6760ea Entertainment Notebook, Vista Home Premium 32-bit, Intel Core 2 Duo T5450 / 1.67 GHz ( Dual-Core ), Ram: 2 GB (installed) / 4 GB (max) - DDR II SDRAM ( 2 x 1 GB ), NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS - 256 MB.

So basically, I play a video off my hardrive, doesn't matter what program I use to play them or what video format I use (as far as I am aware of) or how big or bad quality, it has a tendency to occasionaly freeze the pictue (the sound carries on as normal) for a few seconds before the picture unfreezes but goes into a fast forward state until it catches up with the sound again before it starts palying again. This happens randomly through the video. Sometimes it happens constantly, sometimes only once or not at all. It is pretty random when it happens and how often.

I have checked my Laptop's performance during these occurances to find no out of the ordinary performance history, my laptop isn't overloading and has plenty of spare processor power or whatever to spare on the video.

I downloaded the K-lite codec pack... this didn't help. I can only think that there is some conflict happening on my laptop. Any ideas?

Help is, as always, greatly appreciated!

Thank you very much.

Hi

I'm new here. I was hoping someone could help diagnose my BSOD issues.

I upgraded my video card to a MSI Radeon R9 390 recently. But my Motherboard is a Gigabyte Model: GA-870A-UD3.
It is running on PCI-e 2.0 rather than 3.0 but I don't know how to verify that this is what is causing the BSOD.

I am also running two types of RAM in my computer:
Corsair 2x 2GB RAM
Kingston 2x 8GB 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL11

I have a Corsair HX650 as a powersupply. I would've thought that this PSU is sufficient for the hardware that I'm running.

I play games such as GTA V, Starcraft II, Counter Strike: GO and it crashes at random times - sometimes even in the menu screen.

Look forward to hearing back form you and telling me what type of tests I can do to try and find the root cause.

Thank you all in advance!

Hello,

I have done two re-formats on my computer attempting to get rid of this blue screen error, but it keeps coming back (almost instantly). I think it usually happens when I watch netflix and close the computer without shutting down first; but it has happened a few times when I wasn't previously watching netflix.

It only occurs when I'm starting the computer, but not every time.

The last time it happened, I kept ignoring the blue screen and it eventually got to the point where I wasn't able to use the computer (couldn't save files, wouldn't connect to internet, etc.).

Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated. I attached my dump files, but to be perfectly honest, I don't know anything about fixing computers. So please baby step me through fixing it if you can

Thank you so much,

► You have two antivirus programs installed. AVG and McAfee. Your crash is directly blaming AVG.

It is Driver Reference Table - avgidsdrivera.sys.

So you must to uninstall AVG. At the same time, McAfee is a higher level crap, and a very well known problem causer. Uninstall McAfee too. For best protection, use Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows, with Free MBAM.

► Also, Free up the startup.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept the restart.
► What I have also noticed, you have some old device drivers installed.

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Hi, I  have this strange issue where when watching Netflix in either IE11, Edge or Netflix App in full screen mode the display would sometimes flicker or goes black for a few seconds then back to the video.  This would happen continuously  every 10 second of so during playback.  I had similar issue with watching YouTube video before, but it was resolved by selecting "Use Software Rendering instead of GUP".  However this does not seem to have any affect on NetFlix videos. I did some troubleshooting and discovered that this issue appears to be caused by Intel(R) HD Graphics 530 driver.  When disabling the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M driver, the issue still appearing.  However, when disabling the 530 driver, the issue seems to go away but video became slightly choppy. The default 530 driver what came with the PC was .4475 and I have since updated to the latest version .4627.  Updating the graphic driver did not solve the issue and I also did a full uninstall and reinstallation of the driver. I have the latest BIOS for this computer F.11 Rev.A Wondering if anyone have similar issue or offer some additional troubleshooting advice. Thanks

Hi All!

So I am reaching out to all you wonderful people in hopes that I'll be able to recover my system without having to send it back to HP (terrible, terrible service!)

In short, I bought a system that was a demo system. I just needed it for school (Adobe Creative Suite, pretty much) and figured that it had sturdy-looking specs--because it was open-box, it was under 400 with tax!

However, from the first week on, it crashed repeatedly at random times. Bringing it back, they told me it was probably bad ram (I bought it with 3 x 2GB) and was advised to run the system on one stick at a time to find and eliminate the problem RAM. I did so, and found one that crashed consistently, and removed it. Everything was fine from then on.

Fast-forward three or so months to now. This thing crashes every day! (I am back to using a 6 year old Vaio as it is more reliable) I know I may just be experiencing a bad case of buyer's remorse, but I do need a stable computer, so I would like to sort out this one's problems.

I initially thought it may be video card related--I am no troubleshooter, but oftentimes when it crashes, there are little random lines drawn on a frozen screen, or just a bunch of random lines and colors (this happens WITHOUT a BSOD, usually--the computer will just shut off). When a BSOD does occur, it usually happens when watching something online (strangely, does not happen when playing video from my hard drive). Also, the screen saver triggers it sometimes.

However, I a... Read more

Sorry if this isn't the right forum and hello, I just recently bought a new computer and it is causing me some problems.

I originally bought it to play computer games on it as I do enjoy gaming, though it continues to freeze on me whenever I do so.

When I start up a game it plays fine on max settings (Borderlands/Crysis/COD4, etc.) thought after about 1 - 2 hours later it freezes giving me the only option of a hard restart.

When I start the computer up again I put the game on and this time it freezes after about 5 - 30 minutes. This even happens when I watching videos on youtube.

My computer specs are as followed;

Make/Model: Dell XPS 630
CPU: C2Q - Q8200 @ 2.33GHz
MEMORY: 3GB
HARDDRIVE: 640GB
OPTICAL DRIVE: DVD RW
VIDEO CARD: GEFORCE 9800 GT 512MB (x2)

If anything else is required, please let me know and please could someone help. I am at my wits end.

Thanks alot.

Hi - I keep on getting random BSOD while watching Netflix, Youtube, or just simply browsing (although it's more frequent on Netflix / Youtube). This has been going on ever since my PC was built, but I just kept on ignoring them. However I want to get rid of the problem because it is interrupting my work.

I wish i could provide more details, but the errors I am getting seem pretty random. My SF zip file that is attached on this thread contains dmp files from January to this date, and it can be seen that the errors are different.

Hope you can help. Let me know what can I do to help you guys investigate the issue.
Thanks in advance! :-)
