BSOD - Frequent - impossible to fix - 90% hardware replaced!

Q: BSOD - Frequent - impossible to fix - 90% hardware replaced!

Hi all

I have had this problem for a couple of months and it is driving me crazy . The problem has also evolved somewhat. It started with what seemed like power issues and so I bought a brand new 530W PSU. Since then I have done a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro SP1- twice. Updated the BIOS. Updated all the drivers I could find that were slightly old. I have swapped out the graphics card; swapped out the RAM (DDR3); swapped out the mobo for identical model. I have even bought a new SSD and installed W7ProSP1 on that. It now starts nice and fast - but still unstable. I get 3 types of failure:

1. BSODs. dumps show various errors - not all the same.
2. Lock-up / Freeze - have to power off/on (no logs/dumps).
3. Random resets where the system acts as though the reset button was pressed. (no logs/dumps).

I am at a complete loss. Seems that the only thing I haven't swapped out is the CPU.

I have followed the instructions for attachements - please note that the system froze twice and I had to power off/on and re-run the program. Worked third time around. I have attached relevant files. I have also attached a screenshot of various system stats to give a better idea of my setup.

I really hope that someone here specializes in the impossible. This has cost me a fortune in time and money - and hair I REALLY need some help here. I have done everything I know how to and I am still lost.

TIA guys.

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.

Device Concerns:
Code:
ASInsHelp ROOT\LEGACY_ASINSHELP\0000 This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.
Were you aware of the above? If not, please install all drivers from your manufacturer support site. The manufacturer should be either for your motherboard or for the system manufacturer (DELL, HP, Etc.). Asus Ai Booster software is the name of the device.
Analysis:Your BugCheck codes varied with nearly each crash. This typically indicates a hardware issue. Run some hardware checks.If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

If you have an SSD, make sure the following are up to date:SSD firmware
BIOS Version
Chipset Drivers
Hard disk controller drivers/SATA drivers
If you have a Marvell IDE ATA/ATAPI device, make sure the drivers are up to date from the Intel site or Marvell site and not from your motherboard/vendor support site.

Run all but the advanced tests with SeaTools for HDDs.SeaTools for Windows

SeaTools for DOS
Monitor temperatures during the following tests. Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures. Real Temp is a good CPU temperature monitor.
Speccy - System Information - Free Download will monitor all hardware temperatures.
HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools can be inaccurate for CPU temperatures, but is a good program for GPU temperature monitoring.
Use FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net to test the graphics card GPU. Let it run until the GPU temperatures even out or until the GPU temperatures reach a dangerous level (you can find the max temperature for your card on either the nVidia or AMD sites; if you are not sure, ask us). The goal is to get a steady temperature, find out if the GPU is overheating, or to see if there are any artifacts present in the test itself: look for strange pixelated patterns on the screen or colors that do not look like they belong. Then use the |MG| Video Memory Stress Test 1.7.116 Download to test your graphics card memory. Let the memory test run for at least seven passes; the more the better.

Run Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95 to determine any hardware problems. Run all three tests for a few hours each. If you get errors, stop the test and post back here.

Follow the steps for doing CPU stress test using IntelBurnTest

Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).



Warning
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!
For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:Shut down and turn off your computer.
Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working. If you do not have an anti-static workbench, desk, or pad, you can use your computer tower/case by finding a metal hold in it, such as a drive bay.
Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Hey all,

Just put together a new computer a week or so ago. Threw in the best I could find for the money I had;

Sabertooth 990FX Motherboard
AMD FX 8-core CPU
16gb RAM
Radeon HD 5770 GPU (Old)
as well as a new hard drive and optical drive

The Windows 7 OS (64 bit) I have came from a friend; I do not know if he got his copy from a store or via other means.

And lately I am getting a BSOD roughly once a day. I started up my computer today, and had a BSOD after just 5 minutes of active time.

If you can help me at all before I start opening up my computer and reseating everything, I'd appreciate it greatly.

Here is my minidumps and system health.

A:Semi-frequent BSOD's with new hardware

I don't know if your copy of Windows 7 is legal (based on your description).
Please do the following:
- activate/validate the Windows installation at Genuine Microsoft Software
Activate - What is validation and how does it work? - Microsoft Windows - Click on the VALIDATE NOW button on the left side
Validate - Activate Windows 7 on this computer - Follow the instructions to activate your system
- don't use "leaked"/torrent builds (if this is the case we may never find a fix)

While waiting for your response, I will go so far as to analyze the info that you've provided.....

Perfmon reports that the "dirty bit" is set on your E: and H: drives
Run CHKDSK /R /F on each of those drives. If this doesn't fix the problem, then the next step is to format the drive (and this will erase all info on those drives).

My monitor goes black and I am forced to reboot. After rebooting I get a blue screen prompt telling me that i've recovered from a BSOD. I've been monitoring them since October.

In October, I RMA'd my graphics card. Oct 27. You can see that after I got a new GPU, my BSOD's halted... so obviously its the GPU right? if you look at my BSOD dumps the last one is OCT 27, new gpu, and i don't get one until Feb 7.

So on Feb 7 I call up eVGA again and say, ok so my GPU is bad again and I wonder if its something im doing to kill them.

So I am going to get a second RMA and the tech tells me that they received my first card and they ran it for over a hour in a diagnostic app and didn't have a single problem... aka my card was fine...

so i explain my BSOD issues and the tech tells me that it may be a voltage issue and that it may be my power supply... soooooooooo

I goto Tiger Direct down the street and buy a "whatever i can get" thats over 1000 watts supply because I have a 850 watt PSU and obviously its not enough power so i go big... and guess what... My last BSOD dump before the PSU is 3/18 March 18. So new PSU and I don't get a single BSOD until 6/14/2014.

So I have attached "All" of my dumps and all my info with the issues.


My problem is... if its "not" my GPU, why did getting a new one give me no BSOD for 3 months.

A:BSOD 0x116 (stop error) Replaced GPU, replaced RAM, replaced PSU

Hi Zuriel.

I read your OP. I would suggest you to have an open mind; and dont decide that it is not it. Because during troubleshooting you have to get everything tested.

The BSOD is a stop 0x116. That is an error from the part of the display environment. That means ....
The GPU itself
The display driver
The PSU
The system temps and dust allocation inside the computer
The hardware parts like GPU fans
Overclocking failure
And etc. I would suggest you to go through a thorough troubleshooting, whatever may be the idea you may have about those.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU, 850 watts you said) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Hi everyone,

My mom's pc, that I've build, is having serious issues. The frequence of BSOD's was almost one every hours...
So I've decided first to format and install Win 7 x64 ultimate, then I installed the up to date drivers (Lan, sound, chipset, gpu, webcam...) some were installed via the windows update manager. I've installed the USB 3.0 driver recommended on the Asus website, which is a Nec usb 3.0 controller... . BSOD's were still happening so I've decided to check the Ram, using memtest, I did 4 passes with no errors. Then I tested the CPU and GPU (the integrated one, as I've noticed that without the GPU on the PCI-E slot, BSOD's were less frequent) using OCCT for one hour on both with no errors... In the end I've uninstalled the USB 3.0 driver, as apparently it was also causing BSOD's.

I don't know how to check the other hardware such as : disks, the power supply (I changed it recently), and the motherboard itself. I am now wondering whether it is an hardware or software issue, that's why I'm posting here.
Before I attach the SF diagnostif folder, here are the specs of my pc:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition (no o/c)
GPU: integrated: AMD HD4250, and the one on the PCI-E a HD5850
MB: Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2*2GB 1600Mhz

Hey all. Been reading the forums here for a few weeks while trying to get a handle on the malware situation I've got going on. It's been helpful and everyone here seems quite knowledgeable, so I'm finally going to just ask for help and hope someone thinks they may be able to do something to assist. I build my own systems and have probably done a hundred or more Windows installs and nearly as many (K/X/L)ubuntu setups, and this is the first time I've ever felt like what I'm trying to troubleshoot is far above my pay grade. 
 
All six of the PC's in my home are down for the count right now. Whatever I have going on either spread via USB device prior to showing its teeth, or via the home network. I've established this thing is hardware-resident and I just want avoid abandoning six high-end machines for trash. I've been working between Windows 7 and Xubuntu in attempts to pin down the chain of re infection, and will do a clean windows 7 install to run diagnostics from. I have to physically pull my wireless card to stop from dialing out in the background and randomly killing tasks, so please forgive that I intent to post this and then go back and download/run the normal diagnostics to update it with.

My computer, although was fast in the past, is getting old (~2-4 years... can't remember).

I think some of the hardware is getting old and 'broken'.
Video card is going out I think. Ram as well. Maybe CPU.

I can not tell though.

Might just be a virus.
I need to either replace the faulty hardware while simultaneously upgrading some things, or determine if it would be better to just get a new computer.

There is a game coming out (hopefully soon (SWTOR)) and I will need my computer to be in better operating condition than it is now. I am certain I will upgrade the video card but if everything else needs to be replaced too then I will just get a new computer and upgrade the video card in it...
I do not know how to determine what is faulty though.

Is there a tool (benchmark type thing) that can test my hardware to see if it is getting old and needs to be replaced?

Any suggestions?
 

A:Suggestions on how to determine what hardware needs to be replaced?

You could start by posting the details of the problem or problems you're having. If your video card, RAM, and processor were all broken, your computer wouldn't even power on.

Viruses are software problems and can either be fixed with software and configuration changes, or they can definitely be fixed by reinstalling Windows. Viruses don't damage hardware, and replacing hardware won't fix a virus problem.

A while back, I posted on another forum about my internet frequently getting disconnected, and then reconnecting. I was told it was a router problem (which I had thought also) and continued to buy a new router to go along with my new Cable Modem. Also, my PC card was changed from a 54mbps Ethernet connection, to a wireless 128mbps wireless connection. My computer is one of 3 computers on our network, one other which is wireless. My internet, nomatter what the level of activity on the connection is, will disconnect from my computer, forcing me to reconnect to get any access. The internet, wireless or not, works wonderful on the other 2 computers. My connection strength is always strong, so I dont think it hs anything to do with that. Since everything involving the connection has been replaced, and both of the computers keep their connection while mine is disconnected, I am starting to believe that it is somthing internal in my computer. I have tried reformating, and it continues to disconnect. I have checked all firewall settings that I can find, and have turned everyone off for a peroid of time to see if that is the problem, but it continues to disconnect.
I run XP Home, with a highspeed cable Comcast connection. My new Router is a Netgear Wireless 108MBPS, and my cable modem (new) is a Motorola Surfboard. New pc cards are Trendnet. Like I said, this problem was happening before all the new stuff was purchased.
Thanks to anyone that can help!

Hello,

This has all started since installing EA's Origin in order to play SimCity and Battlefield 3, the later crashes with a BSOD Stop 0x0000001 within about 1 minute of starting, SimCity will give me up to an hour before BSOD'ing.
It's 50:50 whether it's a BSOD or a 'SimCity has stopped working...'

On top of this, I now have randomly applications including Spotify and Chrome just crashing - Chrome has crashed twice in the time it has taken me to write this post.

My hunch is a memory leak somewhere, Memtest completed about 6-7 passes last night with no errors.

Have attached requested logs.

Dear Seven Forums,
I'm looking for help regarding my pc that I built 3 months ago.

I am having random crashes of all types:

- 99% of the games crash to desktop after 10-15 minutes (Overwatch,Eu4,Hoi4, CIV V is OK,Witcher 3)
- can't use chrome / firefox for more than 1-2 minutes because of either 'Oops.. something went wrong' or the applications close without error.
- Randomly appearing crashes of antimalware-service and explorer.exe

and of course many blue screens while 'browsing' ,playing

What I've also noticed that I can go playing EU4,Warthunder 3-4 hours without issues and then suddenly keep BSODing the next 4-5 restarts.
I've filled out the PC specs in my profile.
What I've already tried:
-I've reinstalled Win7 3 times and reinstalled Win10 2 times. All of the fresh installs resulted in blue screens.
- I've also tried adjusting BIOS settings like setting tad higher RAM voltage, CPU voltage, running the PCIE in 8x or 4x Mode, and using XMP settings. The recent 3-4 blue screens happened with all the BIOS settings reverted using 'Restore default settings'.
- I've been using 2x4 2400Mhz Kingston DDR4 Rams the first 2 months, but replaced them with the Corsair ones in hopes of solving the BSODs (I've done a clean install + BIOS reset after replacing the RAM)
-edit: I've also tried disabling hardware acceleration in hopes of solving the chrome crashes

Looking for tips to finally be able to identify the faulty driver/hardware

Thanks

The computer:

Dell Inspiron 13"
Approximately 1 year old
Vista Home
3 gig memory
320 gig hard drive

About a month ago, my brother's computer wouldn't boot at all (said "no hard drive found"). He still had the warranty, and the tech support didn't ever determine what had gone wrong. They sent a guy out who replaced the motherboard, memory, and the hard drive. We reinstalled Vista, thinking that'd be the end of it.

Within that same week though (maybe even the next time we turned it on), the computer started having problems again. It wouldn't go past the load screen. My brother re-installed again, thinking maybe he'd done a crappy job the first time around.
Now the problem has changed. My brother's complaint is that it keeps freezing, to the point of being unusable. Opening a single program is enough to do it. It's gotten steadily worse since the re-install. My brother hasn't mentioned, but I noticed a warning immediately after that he was running dangerously low on memory. I tried to free some up, but really he should have plenty.

The diagnostics keeps coming out clean.

He's wanting to do crazy things that I don't think will help at all. I don't have any advice for him though, either.

I built my desktop in 2008 and for the most part its held up pretty well. Starting in the fall I began experiencing display issues. Desktop windows would freeze as i moved them around the screen or webpages would stick as I scroll down. Strange colours and artifacts would appear on the monitors (i have dual screens) and eventually the display would crash. Either it would come back and the loop would repeat itself, or I'd get a BSOD.

In the fall I tried using a friend's GPU to see if that was the cause, but the problem persisted. At the start of this year I decided to install Windows 10 on a new SSD. I hoped a fresh install would help in some way but no.

Since moving to Windows 10, I get a variety of BSOD notifications but googling for help doesn't work. I've attached the logs as requested

CPU: intel Q6600
GPU: ATI 4870
Motherboard: Asus p5q pro
64 bit

Can I breath life back into my machine?

Hello all!

I am fairly ignorant when it comes to PCs, so I finally broke down and bought a Cyberpower PC off of Newegg for my online gaming. I noticed my first BSOD shortly after purchasing it, but thought nothing of it since I had no idea what it was. Then about 6 months ago, they started to get worse and more frequent.

The issue tends to come and go, but finally I am at the point where I simply cannot take it anymore.

For a brief history:

I reformatted my C: drive yesterday. I used my provided Win7 CD and installed my Motherboard drivers via the disc I was also provided. I then went to ATI's website and downloaded the latest drivers for my video card (ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series, 11.5).

I then proceeded to allow Windows to update itself. It seems like I have gotten most of the windows updates out of the way, but as I speak I am currently downloading another one that just popped up.

I am STILL getting BSODs. Whether it be while playing Rift, WoW, or simply browsing the internet or doing miniscule tasks, they just keep happening. Usually it is associated with an annoying sound (the sound looping into just an awful noise) along with lines running across the screen, quickly followed by a BSOD doing a memory dump.

Again, this is all after reformatting. I am not sure what all my Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 folder will contain, so I will include the following 3 dump logs:

Hello there. I've been having frequent BSOD's while both browsing, and gaming. It seems to be a hardware failure judging from the AMDAuthentic. Although I'm curious as to whether it's just the drivers. Any help would be appreciated. It happens more often when gaming, and my video card has overheated in the past, but at the time of most of my crashes the temp was in the 80's which is hot, but would normally run stable at that temp. The dump files refer to the processor being the problem though.

Attachment 53358

A:Frequent BSD: WHEA Uncorrectable Error, AMD Hardware

The WHEA Uncorrectable Error is a STOP 0x124 error (more info on that here: BSOD Index ). While it is most commonly a hardware problem, it's not always so.
First off, this is an error that's reported to the CPU - who, in turn, reports it to Windows (it's actually not blaming the CPU).

While temps in the 80's are hot, I wouldn't expect them to crash the system. I have to wonder about the method that you're measuring your temps - and the accuracy of the sensors. In the past I had a GPU running at 65?C that burned me severely. The sensor wasn't reading correctly and the temp was actually up around 100?C.

Your UEFI/BIOS dates from 2011. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the UEFI/BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard. If possible, use the "inside Windows" flash mechanism (if your OEM provides one) - that is much more forgiving than the traditional (floppy drive) flash method.

You have a Linksys AE1200:. It's driver (AE1200w764.sys) dates from 2011:





I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win8/8.1 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 and later - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.

I have been having major intermittent problems with my PC since I got it about a year ago, and despite my best attempts to find the source of the problems they're still continuing. Although I have built PCs myself in the past this one was built by a friend who is very experienced. The specs are as follows:

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) Service Pack 1 (build 7601)
ASUSTeK Computer INC. P8P67 PRO
Intel Core i5-2500K
16gb Corsair Vengeance RAM (Currently have 8GB installed)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570
Asus Xonar D2 sound card

Apologies in advance for the wall of text, I'll try to be an concise as I can but I'm describing about 14 months progression of an issue...

The problems with the PC started almost immediately but have had varying levels of severity since I have owned it. Initially the PC would crash during certain games, all monitors turning a solid colour of green or pink and the audio looping over half a second or so until I restarted the PC manually. The crashes would become more and more frequent (and still do, a year on) until I reinstall windows at which point there would be a period of stability of anything from a few weeks to several months. I researched the crashes on google and found a lot of conflicting information from different people having similar issues.
In the end, after updating my bios, installing OS updates, etc I decided that the problem was probably the video card and swapped it out for an old nvidia stone age 1.0 (very old card, no idea ... Read more

A:Frequent crashes / undetected hardware issues

Since the PC is home built, you can replace the motherboard and use the same OEM copy of Windows since in essence you are the OEM. No issue there.

What power supply do you have? An underpowered or faulty powersupply can account for most of the problems as much as the motherboard or damage the motherboard and/or other hardware.

Have you at any point ran memory and hard drive diagnostics?

I suspect you might have more than one issue at this point. You can use Memtest86+ to test the RAM and each hard drive manufacturer has their own drive diagnostics. Both things can be found on the UBCD: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

Windows installing and having less issues can make sense, if you have faulty hardware it can corrupt the software and make things progressively worse, this is especially true if the hard drive has bad sectors or the RAM is faulty or incompatible.

Also have you ever updated the motherboard BIOS? If not you should as they list lots of fixes and stability fixes in every release. You only need to flash the latest BIOS as it includes all previous fixes: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8P67_PRO/#support_Download_30

Hey guys.

For a few months now, maybe around 3, my PC has begun getting stuck it seems. It has gotten so bad that on basically every start up, after most programs have been launched, it sounds like it just slows to a halt and stays there for up to a minute, and then suddenly picks up. This happens every once in a while throughout the day I am using it, and it is getting very frustrating.

Whether I am playing a game, watching a show, or simply booting up, it happens. Very rarely does it end in a BSOD, where it gives me a memory error. My guess is that either the ram or the harddisk is dying, but I really do not know. I have updated all my drivers, and I am unsure of what to do now. I just really want it to stop. :(

Anyone have any idea what I can do?

I'm running Windows 7 on an HP pavilion dv4-2045dx.  My hard drive is partitioned and I am dual-booting with Linux Mint in the other partition.  Both operating systems were working fine for over a year until a few months ago.
 
A few months ago I started getting blue screens in Windows 7 with increasing frequency.
 
Now, in Windows 7 I am getting frequent blue screens, usually within 5 or 10 minutes of startup, to the point where I can't even use the computer.  I also sometimes just will get a hard freeze during, or after startup.  Sometimes, the computer doesn't even turn on at all, and my num-lock and caps-lock lights flash 4-times in a repeated pattern with a black screen.  According to the HP website this indicates a problem with the graphics card, but it only happens intermittently.  Sometimes, after booting up, I will get a Windows 7 message that says the graphics driver has crashed, but has recovered.  Typically, I will get a blue screen or a hard lockup within 10 minutes of this message.
 
In Linux Mint, I will often get a hard freeze within 10 minutes of startup, or it will stall during the boot process.
 
Since I am having similar problems in both operating systems, I am wondering if this is definitely a hardware issue or if there are viruses/rootkits/etc. that could infect both OS simultaneously.

I recently reset my laptop to factory settings, since I was planning on giving a clean computer to a family member. However I've run into some problems after 2 weeks or so of using HP system Recovery.

I use Google Chrome for browsing. I've noticed that upon start up the hardware never stops running, before recovery the sound of it running would stop after 2 minutes or so, now it hardly ever stops, unless the computer has been on for longer than 15 minutes or so. Sometimes opening Chrome or IE takes about 10 minutes, loading any page can take 5-10 mins.

There are frequent browser crashes and sometimes my entire computer freezes which would mean I would have to shut down via the power cord.

I've ran AVAST and Malewarebytes and have come up with nothing.
I recently updated to Java 7 update 11.
And last week I had been trying to download and install the .NET frameworks, so I may have encountered my troubles during that time period.

Hello, welcome to SevenForums!

Nothing shown as far as processes go, and you have a 109* critical structure corruption bugcheck for one of the two dumps, so it's most likely hardware related, usually memory of hard drive.

I would recommend running Memtest to ensure your memory isn't faulty.

Check your hard drive for any errors as well with chkdsk:

Open the "Computer" window
Right-click on the drive in question
Select the "Tools" tab
In the Error-checking area, click <Check Now>.

It's been almost a week, I've had BSOD came up randomly once throughout the day, then the second day, it happened multiple times. I tried calling Microsoft support for help by speaking to their agents and after following their troubleshooting process, my laptop became worse to the point where I couldn't even get past the login screen and my correct password was seen as an incorrect password. I tried system restore, rebooting in safe mode, and a factory reset and the problem persisted. I asked Microsoft Support what to do next and they said my only option was a clean installation of Windows which required another PC and USB Drive. Haven't been using my PC for days until now.

I then called MSI and they told me the same thing, otherwise I had to go get it sent to a technician or mail it to them to get it fixed. Two days ago, I then did the clean installation of Windows as suggested using the creation media tool, downloaded all of the necessary drivers for the model of my laptop and there was no BSOD error while I was getting my PC up to date.

The newest stuff is in minidump.rar i think.
i couldnt click fast enough to get a brand new one.

My Computer's about a year or two old, its been not used for months because of the bluescreens.
Its A Acer Gateway DX4831
it has 1TB of HDD and 6GB of ram, it Runs on windows 7 home premium and i have done two clean reinstalls already.
if was running on something different at first, it was still windows 7, the bluescreens started happening ages ago so i cant really determine what could of started them.
but i do remember the fact that it started with one blue screen every once in awhile, then they started to build up.
Im not very educated in fixing computers, so if i am told to do something i might need instructions on how to do so.
it is a 64 bit
what else..Its never been anything other than a acer gateway, and its been under a week since the last clean reinstall.
ive tried numerous amounts of things. During the clean reinstall i would constantly get bluescreens

Hello,
Yesterday I got a BSOD out of the blue while just using chrome. I rolled back my video card drivers, tried a different video card, no video card, all resulted in a crash soon after startup. It did not crash in safe mode, and I ran seatools on my hard drive and it said there were bad sectors that it couldn't fix. So I bought a new HDD and SSD and made a fresh install of windows on them. With the new drives/OS I no longer crashed at starup and I thought I was good until it crashed again a few hours later. So then I ran memtest, came back 0 errors. I updated my motherboard BIOS, tried multiple previous versions of nvidia drivers, updated intel chipset, put in new SATA cables into different ports, tried each stick of ram independently. Same result evrey time. Today I turned on driver verifier for non-windows drivers and was able to induce bsod much more frequently (every few minuted vs hours). I only have the logs from after I turned on driver verifier because they werent saving originally. I really have no idea what to try anymore and I really hope you guys can help.

[SOLVED] Windows 7 BSOD with various codes on fresh install

I sent the computer back to HP for repair. They replaced the CPU and motherboard and sent it back. All seemed to be going perfectly since yesterday, until two issues happened today.

First, I was attempting to plug in headphones to the rear panel but couldn't quite see the holes, at one point the computer just completely shut off while I was plugging the headphones in. It wouldn't start for a minute or so until I opened the case, pulled out the power and turned it back on.

After that, all seemed fine again.

Later tonight, the computer froze in Windows for about 15 seconds and then went to BSOD with PFN_LIST_CORRUPT and BCCODE 4e

I'm back on now and it seems to be running fine, but the problem was intermittent before as well.

The report is attached and the details of my computer are contained in the previous post.

Hello,

Once or twice a day I get a BSOD while running a few intensive tasks like playing games.
Now already checked with the temps and cleaned all dust inside the PC and seems to behave the same.
My idle temps are now 32 degrees on CPU and 35-36 on GPU. Guess those are the most important ones.
The BSOD states issue with memory_management... Now at first I thought this could be RAM so I replaced my RAM with new ones but the issue seems to not be fixed.
Now I tried to investigate myself and downloaded BlueScreenView but not sure how to interpret the info there. I think the things in red are the ones that get the info, but just want to make sure I can get some pro info before.
Ok so here is the mini dump attached.

Hey

Having a problem with this laptop here. Its an Samsung Notebook NP N102.

It was givin to me to fix, the keyboard had liquid spilled on it so I bought a new one to replace it. When I put the new keyboard in windows loaded up and looked like it was tryin to install the drivers or something fo the keyboard.

Nothing will work on windows, I cant get into exploreer, start menu or any other thing on the computer.

It then goes to BSOD and says somehting about "Bad pool header"

I have tried running in safe mode also and it still crashed to BSOD.

Anyone got any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks!

My laptop is having the BSOD after I wake it from sleep. This started happening after I just had a friend replace a failing 320gb 5400rpm Seagate hard drive on my laptop with a new 500gb 7200 rpm Western Digital hard drive, and I had all the files cloned onto the new drive. My laptop is a 6 year old HP running Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit that was upgraded from Windows Vista. I've uploaded the files from the SF Diagnostic Tool.

A:BSOD after waking from sleep; just replaced HDD

The crash dump included in the zip is too old to give the idea of the present situation. Attachment 345214
Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Hey, I've gotten the occasional freeze or BSOD. Often times during a movie, but not exclusively.

I ran memcheck all day and no errors and I've also replaced RAM.

I'm thinking something related to heat, but I'm not sure.

Thanks for the help!

Hi there For a few weeks now i have had a few BSOD's One being irql_not_less_or_equal_too

But that i have tracked down to a faulty graphics card which the manufacture has now replaced (Ati 5870 Hd)

The machine seemed to be running fine and then last night i got
" A driver has overrun a stacked based buffer "

I am running an I7, with Gigabyte 333 Mobo and 6gb Of tripple channel ram

The machine is overclocked to 4.0ghz (Not done by myself done by overclockers)

This new Bsod has come after installing the new graphics card and happened while i was playing blackops.

I have attached the latest MiniDump file. and the Last minidump file before the new graphics card.

I have run Memtest for 17 passes and 0 Failures.

I am probably going to run a benchmark for a while see if i can replicate.

Any ideas ?????

Thanks

A:Faulty Graphics card replaced and Still Getting BSOD

Please provide this information: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

Next, please stop the overclock and return the system to default values. Test to see if this stops the BSOD's. If the BSOD's continue, we'll suggest some other tests. The overclock is very radical (2.800 to 3.822 gHz) and is (IMO) most likely the issue here. Since you passed MemTest I'd have to suspect that some overclocked component of the motherboard is causing the BSOD's.

Although limited to only 2 memory dumps, here's what I've found:
2 different BSOD error codes blaming the kernel (core of the OS). If this was the case, I'd expect more errors than just the occasional BSOD - so something else must be to blame.

This may be the start of a pattern indicating a hardware problem, so I suggest starting with these free diagnostics (skip MemTest as you've already run it):

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests. They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:

My Dell Inspiron 1440 laptop is Windows 7 x 64. It came with Windows 7 pre-installed, but I had a ton of problems with it and just recently had Dell replace the hard drive (a refurbished hard drive) that also came with Win 7, but a very "slimmed down" OEM version, so I had a LOT of software reinstallation to do. It kept crashing, so I used one of my Windows 7 OS disks that came with the original configuration and installed it (3 times) on top of the OS they included with the refurbished hard drive. My computer is 1 1/2 years old, I don't know the age of the hard drive. The OS is also 1 1/2 years old, but newly re-installed.
Although I had a million problems with the original hard drive, I never had a BSOD on it until now. I ran the debugger, but don't have a clue what I'm looking at and to be honest, I am SO SICK of dealing with computer problems right now, I don't feel like researching what little bits I did learn from running it!
I do have an extended warranty, but I really HATE dealing with Dell's Tech Support, so if I can resolve it (or you nice people can) relatively easily, then I'd rather go that route.
Hope you can help! Thanks in advance...

A:BSOD on newly replaced hard drive

It looks like the panda cloud AV stuff is crashing you.
There's a system driver it installs that your computer doesn't seem to like.

Sadly outside of uninstalling the software I have no solution to the problem.
I'm really surprised to see this, I haven't seen anyone having trouble with panda lately.

Since you've been having bsod's it is also always a good idea to run this
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Just to make sure no system files were damaged during the crashes.

Every 10-40 minutes, the application I'm currently working in [whither it be skype, L4D2, or firefox] becomes unresponsive, and after a minute or two, the window turns white, notifying me that it's not responding. This unresponsiveness quickly spreads to other open processes, rendering them frozen as well. I can still use the mouse, and it appears rainmeter still responds [updates, showing barely any CPU usage].

Steps I've taken to try and resolve this:
Using only one main program, still does it
turning the computer off and on again
Memtest is clean
chkdisk passes
MBAM/MSE scans return nothing
defragged
no memory overflows that I can see

While troubleshooting, I noticed that during the 'fit of unresponsiveness' the disk usage light on my tower is solid, but when I looked at the disk usage in the resource monitor, no processes whatsoever were using it [screenshot related]

If any more specifications are needed, I'll be happy to elaborate.
Thanks!

A:Frequent unresponsiveness, 100% hardware disk usage, 0% software usage

It could be indexing. What if you turn off indexing just as an experiment?
