Q: BSOD BSOD BSOD (crawls in corner and dies)

hey i am on a emachine with about 1400gb of ram andbut an old video card, i think realtek 200. But there is a game called Combat Arms (mmfps) game and when i try to load a game it either gives me a blue screen or restarts my computer. This has happened before after a few updates and then im fine then im not. i dont think it the new ram i instaled( 2 ddr 3200 512gb) Its only made the game faster. Whats the problem.

Preferred Solution: BSOD BSOD BSOD (crawls in corner and dies)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Do you mean your LAN card?

If yes, then a faulty piece of hardware would be a primary cause for BSOD.

I would update the driver for the LAN card (go to another computer that has an active internet connection, download the driver to a thumb drive or CD, and install on the computer in question).

If the LAN jack is on your MOBO, you may have a larger issue. If it is a expansion card, try replacing it.

Hope that helps.

Hey Guys,
I am having an issue here and I will greatly appreciate if anybody here can help me resolve this issue.
My Computer has 2 SSD and one HDD and i was using it just fine for a few months but I always thought that the computer was very slow to be using 2 SSD on Raid 0 so I tried to find out what was the issue.
When researching about the matter I found out that the RAID 0 was using one SSD and the HDD not the 2 SSD that as a result the drives where acting as HDD not as SSD so I went ahead and created a Complete System Image then I Deleted RAID 0 and created a new one now with the correct 2 SSD drives in it.
I booted up and restored the PC from the Image I had and all went well.
Started using my system again and I was loving the speed but after 3 days I started getting this BSOD Critical Process Died and now it happens every 10 minutes after I boot up the PC. Makes my PC useless.
I have searched high and low looking for a solution but nothing seems tio fix it.
I tried deleting the raid again and creating a fresh raid but still same issue.
I tried updating all drives but all are up to date
I tried running sfc/scannow but it fails
I tried doing system restore to an early restore point but that always fail
I tried refreshing the PC but that fails as well.
I have the system set to create minidumps when it crashes but I never get a minidump file created
I am out of ideas and any help you guys can provide will be greatly appreciated.

A:BSOD Critical Process Dies Issue

No dumps so not much to work with.

Have you tried getting rid of the RAID0 setup completely. That seems to me the most likely cause. I doubt you will see much difference in speed since you are booting from a SSD.

Okay, I've tried everything. I've tried chkdsk. I've tried reinstalling. I've done everything I could think to do. I think my hard drive may be bad. But, I'm not sure. I was getting BSODs that said Stop 000000x08 and the affected program was iaStor.sys Although I was unable to delete it. I can't even start in safe mode. Whenever I try to start at all it takes me to a BSOD and immediately shuts off. I can't even read what it says. I've been driving myself crazy over this. Plus, I've reinstalled 2 os because that's what I've read to do. I just don't know what to do. I think it may be my hard drive but have no idea how to check. Thanks for any help. My system is a Dell Inspiron 1525 with Windows Vista Basic Home.

A:Flashing underscore in Right hand corner + BSOD

In order to test the hard drive you can run one of the diagnostic programs below. The files, in ISO format, will need to be burned to a CD using a program that can burn CD image files.

Hitachi Drive Fitness Test
Western Digital
WD Support / Downloads / Select Product
(choose your product and select Data Lifeguard Diagnostic)
| Seagate

Could also be a drive controller/motherboard issue but run the diagnostics first.

I've got this system running since november 2010 and i have had not a single problem. About a month ago, i had issues trying to boot windows: i had to turn power on/off loads of time until i was able to get to desktop. Since that day, Blue Screens happened every time i got to desktop, after few seconds or after few minutes... Freezes and BSoD kept coming, so i ran some tests: memtest86, scandisk, a samsung hdd test... They showed no errors but memtest.
Memtest86 found out loads of errors coming from both RAMs and so i bought new ones: Kingstone HyperX KHX1600C8D3K2. I had same problems: freeze and errors just after boot, not later (played some heavy game for more than 5 hours or so).

I tested old rams on another computer, and they worked just fine.

Oh, and i format/install Windows7 about three times.

I tried to remove GPU and tried to use MOBO GPU, but it still freezed.

Right now i have no freeze/BSoD on boot, but only while playing (after few secs).

P.S. : I had 2 BSoD using the BsoD collecting application.

P.P.S. : Some things are written in italian because i'm running an italian OS.

A:BSOD Plannetside 2 (steam) black screen> reboot> BSOD crash report

A stop 0x116 is a display/graphics related issue. Many a factors or components may cause such a BSOD.

First of all, it is the display driver. From your BSOD dumps, I have noticed that it crashed the same irrespective of the driver version over time. So overlooking this part right now. Will concentrate it on later again, if needed.

Next thing is overclocking, which sometimes lead display to crash. And, you are slightly overclocked.

CPUID: "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz"
MaxSpeed: 3400
CurrentSpeed: 3411
As the system is crashing, you should stop overclocking. Set all the hardware elements like CPU, GPU and RAM to default; and reset the BIOS to default too.
How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS)

Heat is another factor. 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.

Also, dust accumulation causes heat, and dust accumulation depends on the age of the system. How old the system is? If possible, dismantle it and clean the inside carefully .... specially the air vents and fan grills, so that it can blow the hot air out easily.
Dont forget to apply thermal paste to the CPU when re-seating the system.

Insufficient power supply is also a great cause of display crash. Check if the CPU is supplying adequate power there or not.

Hello Guys and Gals, my Windows 7 Laptop is in a serious pickle and I have used every bit of troubleshooting knowledge I have learned in my 10 years working in a Windows environment to no result.

I hope that I am posting in the correct forum, and I have read the forum rules.This is my first post on any help forum ever, so I hope the way I have written this is in conformance with what you all are used to.

I have seen multiple error codes thrown when I forced the computer not to restart and show me the BSOD details. This is what is stated:

The most useful function ever, wake from sleep, is now bluescreening my computer. I instantly tried to use the Disply Driver Uninstaller because thats how i solved this before, but no luck... So please, could anyone help me out? I have the dmp file too. (apparantly this support forum does not allow for dmp file uploads.... well..

Hope that works... (now i realise i could have used google drive and escaped the hassle of creating a mega account...)

I was merely resizing a Windows Explorer window on the desktop when the monitor went black for 15-20 seconds, then the mobo splash screen came up, and Windows booted back up. The "Windows shut down unexpectedly" window came up and the details said it was a BSOD. The pertinent log files from the DM Log Collector app are attached.

*edit* I built this system over 3.5 years ago and I've never reloaded or reformatted anything in that time. Maybe it's about time to reformat C: since I have all my data files on a separate drive anyway.

I recently built a new system. When playing Bad Company 2 I have gotten a consistent BSOD about 1/2 hour into playing. I am not really familiar with BSOD codes and my computer restarted so quickly I was unable to get the exact code. When I play again I will try to get the code and add it to the post.

One thing I noticed when using the Forums System Specs is that it showed the Intel HD Graphics from the processor being the primary graphics with a current resolution of 1680x1050x32 while my Radeon 6870 was the secondary graphics with a current resolution of 0x0x0. I was under the impression that the Intel Graphics should automatically be disabled with the install of my 6870. Is it possible that the Intel graphics aren't being disabled properly and being overloaded when I play? Like I said I'm not too familiar with debugging and any help would be appreciated.

This is my first time posting, please let me know if there is any additional information that is needed and how I can gather it. Thanks!

Hi all, really getting a headache trying to fix my mums laptop out but I am struggling miserably.

I have no idea what she has done, obviously claiming to have done nothing but basically I got a text this morning asking me to take a look at the laptop because it wont turn on.

First thing is the Windows bootup screen, improper shutdown asking to boot in safemode/normal etc. I chose normal and just as it was about to boot into Windows a fast BSOD appeared for a split second and then the laptop restarted, to the same screen. This time I chose Last known configuration, same happened. The BSOD's were so fast I cannot get a glance at it.
I tried in safe mode and it seemed fine, but I didnt know what I should try to do. So I did a system restore and this worked ok but again it wouldnt boot up.

After hours of trying, I googled some and downloaded Windows Vista Recovery Disc and I attempted the Automatic System Repair but it told me failed to detect any problems. Tried it again, and same. So then I attempted to boot it back up, but nope. BSOD again.

The laptop did come with a typical recovery disc but I am unable to find that, and the Windows Vista label is stuck underneath the Laptop so I downloaded a copy of Windows Vista to install and I managed to format the harddrive.

Now this is what bugs me, I cannot even install a fresh copy of Windows, I am actually trying again as we speak but even whilst "Copying the files" on the Windows installation, it BSOD's on ... Read more

Hi everyone,

After restarting the computer following a malwarebytes scan, I could not get into window, nor safe mode and system restore by pressing F8 at start up. What I only had after running a little while is BSOD. Btw, I ran diagnostic test a few times. All passed.

After this happened and I did some searching online, I decided to run a windows xp repair by using the original OEM window xp installation CD (sp2) when the system inside the computer is sp3 after I updated it long ago.

I followed the processes suggested by the following webpage.

It was all fine until Part 4 in that webpage. A BSOD popped out after the windows symbol in Part 3.
And I noticed some new sentences at the bottom of the BSOD which are like ?physical memory dump?.

Hopefully, solutions for all of this would be recommended by someone. I don?t even really dare to switch the computer back on now!

Sorry if I have posted in the wrong section of the forum. If I have done it, please move this post to the right section. Thank you in advance.

A:BSOD after restarting following a malwarebytes scan and BSOD after running windows xp repair

System manufacturer and model?

Generally...OEM disks do not allow for a "repair install", only a reversion to factory defaults which the system had when purchased.

All documentation (which I've seen) referring to a repair install of XP...assume that the user has a copy of MS Genuine Windows, not disks provided by an OEM.

After BSOD problems (0x00000050), I took my two month old Dell desktop back to Geek Squad under warranty. Said problem wasn't hardware, but software, and would charge to fix. I took it home and reinstalled Win 7. BSOD (0x0000007b) with a Dell installation CD, but otherwise fine except it keeps restarting itself at various intervals. When I tried installing drivers, it wouldn't recognize Ethernet card. Not sure what's going on. Wife thinks a no-name anti-virus CD will fix it all, but I'd appreciate your advice.

Hello. I am experiencing some random BSODs. It happens no matter what program is running. It could be in a game, surfing the internet, or listening to music. It is very random. Happens about once every two days on average. Some days are worse.

I have tried running driver verifier, but it would still only bsod occasionally, except it would bsod on startup instead of being in the desktop and getting a bsod.

I have also ran memtest x86 a few times and found no errors.

My windows 7 is:
-x64 bit Professional Edition
-Original OS installed on my system (I built the system)
-Full retail.
-Built my system over the summer. Been getting occassional BSODs ever since.

So first of all, I am not a computer wizard. Some terms I might not understand as i've never had a problem like this before, but i'll try to enlist as much information as possible.

Since last friday or so, i've suddenly encountered a BSOD. Now, i've had them before and it was only once. After a reboot it usually never happend again and everything was cool. But since friday, they popped up again. Mainly during playing Battlefield 1, but i've also had it happen during Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2.

I've had multiple BSOD errors, which are:


Now if it were one, I might've been able to pinpoint the issue, but.. They're constantly different errors that happen. Now, to explain a bit more in detail how it goes:

So i'm just playing a match of Battlefield 1. After 10/15 minutes give or take, it'll bring me to the blue screen. After processing whatever it has to process, computer shuts down and it starts to restart. At this point it will be stuck in an infinite restart loop, where my monitor will not display anything as well. It just says it's not connected to something, which it clearly is. After manually closing and rebooting, i'll have to do this a few times or mess with the HDMI a little bit before I get my monitor to pop up again. Once that happens, I get stuck in the beginning screen where you can see your HDD/SSD installed. It won't go further than that unless I ... Read more

My computer has been unstable for quite some time and after memory tests, changing graphics cards, many driver variations and a couple of fresh OS installs a while ago it is still not stable.

The difficulty is that it doesn't seem to be triggered by anything specific so it makes debugging really difficult... sometimes it crashes twice a day then not for another week or two.

Please help me shed some light on how this could be resolved as I am considering stripping the PC down to its components, selling them and buying a pre-built system instead.

Hi Guys,
I am new to the forum,
My Pc started crashing recently after my old PSU(600w) busted and i replaced it(400w),The funny part about the bsod's is i get different codes each time....eg (d1 then a then 3b..etc) at first i thought it was maybe a virus... so I formatted The PC and then installed the latest drivers i could find for my PC...The results were only slightly different from the past (The computer would stay up a little longer before it crashed), I ran a memtest and RAM is fine, Then I thought it was my GPU overheating....So i cleaned the fans of both GPU and processor and Replaced the Old Thermal Compound.....Still no improvement... and here I am Now

Counterfeit installations such as yours contains 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.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable.

You guys have been great before, and I hope that someone can help me tackle this.

My friend's computer started going weird after playing a game that uses Shockwave. (That's the last thing they remember...) When loading into Windows (regular mode), after selecting (any) user all you see on the screen is black with blue spots all over.

They're using an Asus P5DV2-VM SE motherboard
Intel E2140 (1.6GHz) CPU,
with a 450w PSU.

Originally I thought it was video-driver related as they're using the onboard graphics card. It's a Via P4M890-based motherboard although it has a PCIe expansion.

Loading in safe mode usually works, and loading into VGA mode got me into Windows however I received a 0x8E pretty quickly. At some point I also received a 0xA3. I tried uninstalling the video driver (Via Chrome9). That allowed me back into regular mode but soon after I got a BSOD. I tried running System Restore from safemode and I got 0xA3 (ACPI_DRIVER_INTERNAL) but I can't find info on fixing this one.

Thanks in advance,

A:Bsod 0xa3 And 0x8e - Unusual/unclear Picture And Random Bsod

0x8e errors are usually caused by driver issues. Here is what Microsoft says regarding 0xa3 errors:An inconsistency in the ACPI driver is so severe that continuing to run would cause serious problems. One possible source of this problem is a BIOS error.Drivers and Windows interacts with the BIOS. Have you tried a BIOS update? Usually this is not recommended as it can cause serious issues if the update is not performed correctly, but is recommended when the BIOS is suspected to be the cause of an issue such as this.EDIT: all you see on the screen is black with blue spots all over.I just remembered having an issue like this, and it was corrected by simply reseating the video card. Just thought I would mention this.

I have a relatively new computer that I've built and I've been getting BSOD's for a while.

At first I thought it was because the pagefile was disabled, but that was just why they weren't getting logged to MiniDump. Then I got it enabled again and now I'm getting a lot of BSODs. It's been 0x3b ntoskrnl exe lately, but when I enabled driver verifier I was getting a different BSOD on each boot.

One of them specifically mentioned a .sys that I can't exactly remember. it was XXhalp.sys or something, and when I Googled it - everyone was talking about deleting monitor profiles from the registry and that somehow old monitor profiles were causing the BSODs, so I donno about that.

I would appreciate any help you can offer. I'll be actively monitoring this (and I'm currently in safe mode with driver verifier still enabled). So just let me know what you need.

Around the 17th of March I was playing Smite, joined a match and about half way through it, I received a freeze then a BSOD. This continued to happen randomly when I would play a smite match, ranging from every 1 to 6 matches, could happen near the beginning or in the middle of the game. So I wouldn't ruin more games for others I attempted to fix the problem myself, looking up that I had to update my GPU drivers (which I do now have) or uninstall them to let my pc auto install the suitable one (This ended up with my PC or Radeon hardware detector not detecting the GPU so I had to system restore). I also tried cleaning out my PC rig with a duster to see if, my bad PC hygiene, had caused heating problems but it had no affect. I have used malware-bytes to detect malware and viruses but all that was quarantined seems to have had no affect.

I tried these solutions that I see everywhere when I search, but obviously they didn't work. So instead of finding a solution I attempted to find more symptoms, I found that within the blue screen it mentions atikmpag.sys, I see that my PC problem reports tell me that I have a lot of Windows shutting down and Video hardware errors (With the BCC codes BCC116 and BCC117 respectivly). I also attempted to see if I would gain the BSOD by testing on more strenuous games and didn't gain any BSOD whilst playing Dark Souls 2 and Batman Arkham Knight, thus so far I have concluded that this BSOD seems Smite specific, though this could do with some f...

Hi All,
I'm an experience computer user working in technical support and system administration in linux environment. 
This issue has me stumped.
My pc is refusing to boot, it will throw a BSOD moments after hitting the loading windows screen.
Start up recovery prompts to system restore, once this is complete it restarts with the same effect.
Repairing from the windows system disk has the same effect.
When booting into safe mode, the system will BSOD when loading aswRvrt.sys.
All BSODs happen too fast to read anything, not dumping physical memory.
This all started happening after a seemingly random BSOD which happened last night.
The only change to the system that I effected was installing a newsgroup reader this was done several hours before the first BSOD.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I have spybot/Kaspersky(won't run in safe mode)/AVS4 none of them seem to do the trick. From what I can tell it seems to be the win 32 virus, every time I get rid of it it seems to come back. I would get rid of it then my computer would be fine now it won't run in normal at all.

A very strange and quite permanent problem with using Windows Live Messenger has occured recently. When I log on, I can use it like normal for 5 minutes or so, then the whole computer starts freezing up (While Alt-Tab command still works). Then the mouse input is disabled. Then I get a BSOD (The first two times the computer started acting weird however I got a remote procedure call as opposed to a BSOD).

I have been able to use Windows Live Messenger for a long time, until recently (Less than a week ago) when I got a BSOD usually calling 0x00000077 (Kernel_Stack_Inpage_Error) or a 0x0000007A (At one instance).

An example of a full BSOD code with parameters is 0x0000007A (0xE1E6E990, 0xC00000B5, 0xBF929C0B, 0x37490860); with the 0x7A BSOD the affected file was win32k.sys at address BF929C0B with base at BF8000000, datestamped 45F013f6.

Today I also got a BSOD logging into hotmail.

The computer otherwise works as normal as long as I do not remain online for too long in hotmail, or when refraining from using the Live Messenger client. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Live Messenger in case that would have been the problem. I also reinstalled Firefox to its latest version 3.6.14. The problem persists still.

I have searched for viruses with the latest definitions, and I have updated Spybot S&D likewise and searched for spy- and malware. The computer is apparently clean. I have run CHKDSK with the /F-flag enabled on startup and no sectors were damaged... Read more

I keep getting BSODs when I play games for a short while. At first I thought it was a bad installation of Windows, so I did a clean format (full) of my SSD and a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Installation failed quite a few times before finally succeeding. Tried another copy of Windows 7, same install failures. I finally finished reinstalling Windows 7 on my PC. I suspected the RAM to be at fault so I ran MemTest86+ and found a ton of errors. Upon closer inspection of the BIOS settings, I found that my board was clocking my ram in [Auto] mode at 1333mhz instead of the factory 1600mhz (Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 @1600 CAS9 on Asus Sabertooth Z77). I updated my BIOS to the latest as of this posting and I still have to manually set the memory frequencies for it to run at 1600mhz.

Everything seemed fine for a few hours running prime95. I supposed my PC was fine now after that clean install of Windows 7, but a few minutes into playing Battlefield 3, I BSOD. I am no pro at reading dump files and I was hoping someone could help me isolate the sources of my BSODs. I've attached the minidump files for each BSOD below. Thanks!

Howdy all, new user here looking to isolate a blue screen problem that makes me quite sad as it's becoming rather annoying. A friend a while back (2 years-ish) solved a bsod problem with you guy's help and I thought I would do the same.

I read and followed the "Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions" and have attached it to this post.

Here is a mirror download: http://www.filedropper.com/sevenforums

This blue screen occurs at random intervals it seems, the first occurrence happened about a week ago while playing StarCraft II with a friend; however, I am convinced that the blue screen happens at random because I has occurred multiple times while doing pretty much nothing, besides surfing the web.

Whenever the BSOD occurs, there is something that says "Driver IRQL_Not_Less_Than_Or_Equal" I think.

If there is anything else I can provide you fine folk in order to isolate and hopefully fix this problem, please give me a shout and I will do my best to provide it.

I'm getting random BSOD's on my HP DV6-2090eo Laptop. At most times there is no "real" bluescreen appearing. Instead the computer just freeze and then go black, and I've to shut it down manually. But sometimes there is a real bluescreen appearing and it says "an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed" and some other times the "Video TDR error" message has appeared. I've learned that this is a bugcheck 0x116" BSOD and I've read about solutions such as updating Video Driver, check the temperature, updating other drivers and so on. I've tried several video drivers, updated other outdated drivers and nothing works. I don't think its a heatrelated problem as I sometimes get BSOD about 1 min after start up.
Actually I have had freezes like this in periods from about six months after I bought the computer until now(bought it at the end of nov 2009). The first time I solved it by updating BIOS, but know I can't find any new update.
Other "BSOD periods" I've solved by updating video driver and reseting windows to the original "store-mode" so to say :P

Now any solution I can come up with doesn't work and I don't wanna reinstall windows again just for another two months of being BSOD free!

Anyone got any tips, I really need some help!

Hi irunebar12 & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

I have analysed your dump files and below has been provided an analysis of the same for informative purposes :-

Error : DCACHEL0_WR_ERR (Proc 7 Bank 1)
Status : 0xbf80000000000124
Address : 0x0000000101d80bc0
Misc. : 0x0000000000000086

The dumps are consistent with the error that there was a problem in writing to the L0 Cache of the CPU. That is a dead CPU and hence you are getting the errors even after a fresh install.
See if you are getting any errors in Prime95 according to the below (thanks usasma) -

- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight please run the "Small FFTs" test instead. (run all 3 if you find a problem and note how long it takes to error out with each)
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
Monitor the CPU temperature and DON'T let it exceed 85?C. If it do... Read more

I use a 1.5 year old aces aspire 5738z and I think it just died on me. Here is what happens. Whatever I do it cannot stay without a BSOD for more than 10 minutes. I tried reinstalling drivers and it did not change anything so I tried several things but finally just formated it and installed windows again. I actually got a BSOD while installing windows from an original CD so im pretty sure my problem is hardware related. I did a check of the ram with Memtest for approx 45 minutes (one full cycle) and found nothing. I did a quick test of the HD with an other program and it did not find anything either so im starting to think its the graphics card that is dying. The minidumps (there quite a lot of them but I think they will always give the same info) and health report are attached to the thread.

Here are some specs

Core Duo T4200
Mobile Intel GM45 Express
2x 2048MB

Thanks in advance for helping me confirm the source of this problem!

A:lots of BSOD - Format, Clean windows install - Still same BSOD

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I really dont know what to do!

I have had this had to my laptop multiple times and I am asking if someone could please help. I also had to add the "Seven Forums" zip file made by using SF Diagnostic Tool.

Here's the clif notes: Got a brand new (not refurb) lenovo desktop. win 7 62 bit - blue screen all the time, random times. I'm not a gamer, i had very little installed.

Took a picture, called support with the code, they sent a guy out and he replaced my motherboard. All seemed good - for a few hours. Got two new bsod. Attached are the 2 recent minidumps and a screenshot of my specs, and that other file requested.

Hope you guys can help. I am still under warrantee and can probably raise hell and get another new machine, but it's been 3 weeks and I just want to use the thing

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>.
Drivers in need of update:


LVUSBS64.sys - LVUSBS64 Thu Oct 11 21:39:40 2007 (Logitech Camera driver). Update here.

Something I found out tonight (just now!) through Dell Technical Support (here from my PC, as my notebook crashed & burned) was a cool way to run some great diagnostic tests was to do the following:

Even with seemingly unworkable problems like: DVD stuck in drive (non "tray" system, one like a car CD player, BCD\Boot\ error with 0xc000000f code,) you can:

Hit power (on) + Fn key and hold until you hear an unusual (non "Beep" beep. It's an irregular system driver noise.

Let all tests cycle and, at the end, answer "no" to the final test.

Resetting BIOS to factory defaults after the fact will allow you to, in most cases, assuming you're current on revisions (in my case, A11 with a Studio 1558 with Windows 7 x64 Home Premium + Vista x64 Ultimate,) disable all unnecessary hardware/options when it comes to this situation (WLAN, etc.)

SATA to IDE is important to set.

Configuring USB as a bootable device (will differ on almost every BIOS brand, Phoenix, AMI, Award, etc.,) is pertinent; download (if you've got the same error as me,) SourceForge's UNetbootin.

I've tried lots of utilities just to see what's out there.

That particular one is the simplest and fastest way to make a BOOTABLE ISO image out of a Windows DVD (with at least a 4+ GB flash drive!)

...good FYI to throw in there.

I hope this benefits someone out there in the BSOD land.

Funny thing is that i have router and bsod happens parallel(not always) on both computers
please help

A:BSOD while browsing/downloading torrents hal.dll+12a3b bsod/ntoskrnl

Unfortunately the installation is counterfeit.
The Key is that of a Dell OEM computer - and the motherboard is a retail one by Asus.

The best course of action is to:Purchase a legitimate Windows 7 licence.
Format the HDD.
Reinstall Windows and activate.

Have a rather annoying problem.
System details:
- Windows 7 x86
- Intel Quad Core Processor
- nVidia 9800GT
- 1TB Seagate HDD (brand new)

Right so when I turn on the computer. It'll load up fine, no problems, log in to my account and desktop loads fine. I might be able to run Firefox to browse the web. However within 3-4 minutes of Windows starting, it will freeze and I can only move the mouse, however clicking anything is useless, even dragging the mouse on the desktop doesn't work. Task Manager doesn't open either on Ctrl+Alt+Del, even on a Non-USB keyboard. The mouse is movable for 4-5 minutes before I get a Bluescreen of death and system restart.

On restart, BIOS hangs on "Memory runs at dual channel interleaved", and doesn't seem to detect the HDD. After 30 seconds it'll flash and give me a SYSTEM BOOT FAILURE PLEASE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.
I actually got out the system disk and popped it in, pressed Enter and it gave me the same message.

If I turn off the computer and leave it off for 10 minutes. I can boot successfully again, HDD detected, boot up to Windows again, log in, but the system freezes again. It did the same yesterday, however took longer to crash, so I did a Full system scan with Avast which turned up no viruses, trojans or infected files.

Honestly I really don't have any idea what it could be.
If any more info is needed, please ask I'll reply ASAP.

A:Bios Hang, Windows 7 freeze, BSOD. BSOD on Safemode.

Sounds like it could be something heat related. Is this a laptop or desktop?
