I don't know what to do, please help. I'm not a computer person so I've got absolutely no idea. My one guess is its something to do with the display driver maybe because that has been stuffing up a bit of late, in the way of the screen going black for a couple of seconds then recovering.


Preferred Solution: Blue Screen of death a couple of times a 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.)

My dad had been trying to install a usb modem for internet connection on my sony vaio laptop which is running on windows 7. For some reason every time after the installation was done and he clicked connect the system crashed and show a blue screen and showed something about writing a memory dump. In a few moments the system restarts but takes longer time than usual. He tried uninstalling and installing a couple of times and it always had the same result. I'm not worried about the fact that the modem did not work but the crashes worries me ?

Do you think it may have caused any damage to my system ?

And also I don't think I'm infected by any virus but i found some strange files in my windows folder like MusiccityDownload.exe. I don't beleive it is a virus but maybe some crap left around by some application i might have uninstalled. So how do i clean up my my windows folder of all these crap.

Any guidance would be appreciated

A:System crashed a couple of times resulting in blue screen

You should post in the AM I INFECTED forum on this site and let them know about MusiccityDownload.exe

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

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

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

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

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"

Everything was working fine when one day I started getting blue screen of death. I was on Windows 10 at the time and thought it might have been something wrong with Windows 10 since I had heard of blue screen issues with Windows 10. So I downgraded to Windows 7, and everything was working fine when I blue screened again. I am just wondering what the probelm is and if it has a solution. I am somewhat experienced with computers and have never had an issue like this before. (I keep crashing while playing games and even while watching videos which might help)

Greetings! I will try to be as specific about my problem in general.
I am using a Compaq laptop, using Windows XP. I don't know much more than that, but I can search for additional information regarding specs and stuff.

It all started one day when I was browsing the internet using the latest version of Firefox. I turned up my volume and the blue screen of death appeared (advising me to seek tech support of sorts).

I restarted, and yet again touching the volume yielded the blue screen of death. I tried several, possibly 6 times, and the only thing causing the blue screen of death is altering the volume in any way, including touching the volume buttons, adjusting volume in the volume control and adjusting the wave settings in volume control.

So I ran Spyware Doctor. I do pay the full 40 bucks a year for this wonderful program, and it detected a bunch of freaky looking things. Like adaware, something called virtumonde, and all these high threat viruses and adware, but it wiped them clean. I ran it again, it found 3 more standard viruses that it didn't name, cleaned them, ran SWD again and nothing appeared, so I assume now my computer is free from whatever was messing with me.

The volume problem still persists though, and also at random times the blue screen of death will appear (I'm praying now it won't as I type all this or I'll cry).

Then another problem occurred. When I try to open a file of sorts, that pesky message appears- windows explorer has... Read more

Hello BleepingComputer.com
I have been getting the blue screen of death on my computer every 1-2 days. Usually, its when I am playing LoL or CSGO (Accounts for the majority of BSOD), but sometimes it can be just randomly. I don't know how to post logs or anything, but whenever the blue screen comes up, all I can see is something along the lines up "Faulty driver on kernel stack".

In need of serious help.*
To begin, I am stupid and haven't backed up any of my files so for now a windows reinstall is out of the question. (unless it's completely necessary) okay, so the problem: I was using my computer as normal. Then while on Google Chrome, it started getting slow and said "not responding" this happens all the time, to everyone so I waited and then the dreaded Blue screen of death appeared. Didn't get a look at what it said because it shut down almost immediately. After that it loaded as normal? Which is weird, I think. But got stuck after startup on the black screen of death. All I have is a cursor. Can't do ctrl+alt+del, can't load any of the safe modes. When I go on startup repair, it says "no restore points" on system restore and "could not detect a problem" on system repair or whatever it's called. There must be something to fix this?! :/ I live in hope that the whole system doesn't need to be wiped clean because as I said, I stupidly haven"t backed up my files.*

Can anyone help?? Please?

this sounds like it should be a BSOD thread, post a seperate thread in the BSOD section following the posting instructions for BSODs, make sure you include the dump files, if you don't know how to do that, it should tell you in the BSOD posting instructions.

I seem to be having the same problem that a lot of people are having. Only for me, my computer is shutting off and restarting every ten minutes or so.

I have a completely new computer, bought less than one week ago, with Windows 7.
AMD Pheonom II X4 910
2.6 GHz
64 bit
ATI Radron 4350 display adapter

Everything worked fine until today when suddenly it started this frequent crashing. Prior to the start of the problem, I hadn't installed any new software for over a day.

I'm hoping to post this before it

Here are the two most recent minidump files... I don't have the slightest idea for why Windows 7 is doing this, so any help is appreciated

edit: to be more specific, the BSOD only occurs every few times it shuts down. The other times, it merely restarts and gives the safemode option screen.

A:Blue Screen every couple minutes

A stop 0x124, also known as a "Machine Check Exception". The hardware has signalled an uncorrectable fault and Windows is passing the message along in the form of a 0x124 BSOD. Both crashes are the same. Here's the standard write-up for that error:

A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the
WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon."

In your case, the automated dump analysis has detected a relatively specific issue:


Try to update the BIOS and the hardware-related drivers (video, NIC, chipset...). Don't over-clock or under-cool. Beyond that, give it's under warranty presumably, personally I'd take it back to the shop.

Hi, I'm running win 7 and have been getting occasional blue screens.

The error message is bad_pool_caller. After completion of the sfc/scannow, it reported: "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

I've attached the dump file below.

A:Blue screen every couple of weeks

This appears to be caused by the Intel WiFi driver.

Go to the support site for your PC and look up the drivers for your specific model, then download and install the Intel WiFi driver and install it. See if that helps.

Hello everyone.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L450D-13X computer for the kids, and for the price it's a good laptop. Have had no issues with it until two weeks ago when the screen froze for the boys whilst playing a game and downloading a program from the net. Had to do a force shutdown and since then we have a BSoD on every boot-up. This is what we have tried:

On 'Starting Windows' we are given an option of either 'Launch Startup Repair' which ends up as BSoD or 'Start Windows Normally' which reverts back to the 'Starting Windows' option list.
Any attempt to enter 'Safe Mode' results in BSoD.
Attempting to boot an ISO of the Windows Recovery Disk on a USB key (we did highlight it and promote it to the top) results in BSoD. Borrowing a proper Window 7 installation DVD and highlighting this as an option results in BSoD.

In fact, the only option we used that threw up something different was using advanced boot options. On one of these options we got the Blue Screen of Death with the following information:

Disable Bios Memory Options such as caching/shadowing

Tech info

Stop: 0x000000ED (0xFFFFFA80023C2CDO 0xFFFFFFFFC0000185 0x0000000000000000 0x0000000000000000)

I don't mind erasing the hard drive and starting again, there's nothing on it that's critical. I'd very, very much appreciate a steer on this. Checked the web for stuff and nothing seems to assist in any other options. I am not particularly tech literate but can follow instructions.

Today I booted my computer up to be promoted with a black screen, I gave it a good half an hour before forcing it to shutdown, to which when I booted it back up. Was then promoted with a blue screen about the video card not being able to lead, that happened twice.

I then booted it into safe mode, fiddled around with the drivers to see what was going on, after restarting it again, I got the same black screen, this kept on happening. I then concluded my best solution was to install XP, this worked the video card runs. So the card is not dead, but there are multiple blue lines going down the screen in 4 columns. After going into the device manager I saw that it claimed it was not installed, then I went to Google and downloaded the driver, after installing the computers goes to the same black screen that I got on windows 7.

I have no clue what the problem is, so any help would be most appreciated. Also I tried installing Linux, but after getting though then loading screen of the installer, it goes to the black screen. At the moment in am on my tablet so sorry if there are so many mistakes. I'll try and get some photos of how it looks.

Hi Sean,

I don't like to say it, but it sounds like the graphics card is dead. I had the same issue on an old 8800gts, it would work until I installed the drivers, then I would get very bad artifacts/lines down the screen.
I tried it on 2 different PC's with the same end result once the drivers were installed.

Hi, thanks for checking my question. I haven't found an answer to my particular situation:

Dell xps m1430 laptop w/vista (32).

It all started with a blue screen w/scrolling text after the fated restart. The blue screen text said "if this is the first time you've seen this message..." and then comp restarted, again showing the blue screen, then restarted into windows repair mode, after repair mode tried to fix the problem comp restarted, then the screen went black / blank right after the little windows loading animation (where the bar keeps moving from left to right and there's a small windows logo).
It all happened fast, so there may have been steps I forgot, but that's the jist of it.

Now screen always goes black / blank during startup after the windows loading animation, so I can't start windows in normal mode.
I can start in safe mode if I manually force shutdown by holding the power button, so I'm not imploding with fear... ok I am.

Possible causes:
1. This occured right after installing 11 vista updates (that restart was when I saw the blue screen)

2. Also occured the restart after running a patch called "Vista TCP/IP and UAC AutoPatch 6.0" I downloaded it from softpedia, the developer was listed as defcon, and their website listed was securevista.net, but the site is down(I found this out after the problem occured). The patch had lots of positive reviews, and lots of people on other sites also suggest using it to re... Read more

I have a Dell Latitude 5175 (Core m5-6Y57, 8GB ram, 256GB SSD) which bluescreens during full screen video playback such as Netflix or Windows media player with a Driver_power_state_failure, it doesn't happen straight away but usually after around 10-15 minutes usage.

I checked the minidump file which suggested the Intel graphics card driver was to blame, I updated that to the latest one from Dell which made no difference, updated the chipset driver, bios and then installed the latest graphics card driver from Intel again with no difference, if anything it's worse now.  The issue also occurs when the tablet is docked or when it's not docked although in normal day to day usage, it seems fine.

I've found references to this problem on some other machines, noticeably the Surface Pro 4's but not really any solution.  The next step is to try a clean build but thought I'd see if there's anything else I can try first.  The machine is out of warranty and while it's always occurred I've just lived with it as I incorrectly through the PC had a three year warranty.

Before i describe the problem i would like to make it clear that i would like to recover as much as possible. This problem occurred playing a game called Empires V2.1. It is a steam half 2-death match mod. I had problems in the past however i didn't not consider them problems the screen froze when the game changed map. However when it froze it wouldn't respond to Ctrl+Alt+Delete or Ctrl+Esc or the start menu button. I pressed the power button and restarted it that way. However this is when the problem occurs and i can't over come it. It starts with a normal dell screen and the loading bar crosses at the bottom as normal. Then it goes to a black page with a blue line across the top with white writing saying www.dell.com. A line (programming maybe it appears and disappears rapidly).

My dad's computer had been getting the blue screen every time i would login. I then booted into safe mode, uninstalled the recently installed software and hardware, but then the blue screen would come up about 5-10 minutes after logging in. I put the windows xp disc in and tried to repair the computer. After that, I installed the updates again, but SP2 wouldn't install. I looked online on how to fix the installation of SP2, but then once that was fixed, during the installation of SP2, the blue screen would pop up again. So then i backed up all of his data and did a fresh in install (after deleting the old partition and installing on the unpartitioned part). I decided to install the drivers first from the blue disc that came with the PC. Installed the first three drivers and boom, the blue screen came up again. i then installed windows updates and it has been working fine so far installing the updates. I rebooted and installed the rest of the updates. After rebooting, i got the blue screen again. I then tried to install sp2, thinking that would fix the problem, blue screen showed up in the middle of the install progress. I rebooted and then sent the error report (wasn't able to because PC didn't have the update at that time). Error report said that it was caused by a device driver but was unknown. I went to this page to try to fix it http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=322205. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

After it finished restoring, the computer restarts and everything worked fine. To make sure if everything was in working order, I restart it again. After the "Starting Windows" screens comes up, I get the Blue Screen of Death. I can't even read what the error says because the computer just restarts itself. I did not connect anything new to the computer. I performed a hardware diagnostics to see if it was a hardware failure but no error was found. I can't even get into safe mode. The SFC.exe will be my next step.

Hi, I've been going through some problems with windows, I'll try to be the more clear and organized I can, let's start with my config and the symptoms I'm getting:PC Config:Core2Duo E6550GA P35 DS3 (rev.2.0)2x 1GB DDR2 800Mhz Kingston (in dual channel)GeForce 7200GS 256mb (512mb with turbo cache)HD321KJ Samsung Hard DriveSamsung SH-S203B DVD driveCorsair VX450W Power SupplyOS: Windows XP Pro x64 SP2 (I upgraded to sp2 just yesterday, before that I was running sp1)Symptoms: There are three types of symptoms, the most common is the pc simply restarting, note that I've already disabled the "automatically restart" in the system properties window and it keeps happening, other is the screen freezing, and then I have to restart it, and the last and less common is the famous Blue Screen of Death, also, but for only two times, instead of the freeze or the blue screen I got an empty black screen. All these types of crashes can happen independently of what I'm doing, It has happened while burning dvds with Nero, scanning with anti-virus, browsing the net, or even while I'm asleep and only the bittorrent client is up. Though, there is one peculiarity I think should be important, there's one program, the VirtualDubMod (build 2540/release), which is used for various kinds of video manipulating jobs, that every time I'm enconding a video with it, there is a crash, and I'm convinced it's not only coincidence, cause I have tried a...

Hi -

51 BSOD dumps processed.

The bugchecks - all the same -

0x7a (0xc0000185,,, = KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR = the requested page of kernel data from the paging file could not be read into memory

The first parm 0xc0000185 = disk subsystem failed

Run chkdsk /r

Als, the Microsoft MSDL SYM site used to obtain symbol files to identify Microsoft OS drivers is unable to ID the NT Kernel in your Windows system. I don't know the reason for this. The symbol files are needed to run dump files.

Run the System File Checker/ Repair utility -
START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select run as Administrator | type the following:

sfc /scannow
Upon completion re-boot to allow files in use to be repaired.

Hi there, new here. Upgraded to Windows 7 Home prem a while back and am pretty much regretting it. I have used Belarc to help me post the tech spec of the PC I am using in my profile (I hope that's where it is).

I am getting driver related blue screen fatal crashes one to three times or more a day. The information of the blue screen is of little sense (as per Microsoft) and all I can suggest is it is driver related.

I have updated all my graphics drivers (NVIDIA) as I thought that might be the problem. I am an experienced PC user, but not an experienced PC fixer. I am happy to sit and write down salient details of the next BSOD if someone would like to just suggest what are the salient bits ? When it is working, I like the W7 interface, but I am far from happy that a PC which was always working fine with Windows XP is now crashing at random. Any tips greatly appreciated Keith (yes I will read the guides on BSOD)

A:Blue tint on screen at times

Hi gump52, and welcome to TSG.

What kind of video connection do you have between the monitor and the computer? A loose connection or an intermittent break in the red analog video line of a VGA cable could cause the bluish tint.

What is the brand and full model number of your monitor? If the monitor has on screen menus, pull up a menu when you are having the tint or flickering problem and see if the menu is showing the problem as well.

i know i need more info on my computer posted...i need to find out where to find it and then i'll post it...

this has been happening for MONTHS!

it was crashing hard before...the whole system would lock up. every day. several times a day. blue screen. error message the same every time.

my husband wiped the drive, and i started from scratch and STILL it blue screened.

took it to a place to fix, they ran it for 3 days and not once did it blue screen! they told me that they thought it could be the printer, that i should try keeping the printer unplugged and see if that solves it. seemed odd, but ok.

oh and i told them where the file was that had the error message, but i got the feeling they never even looked at it. and frankly, their idea of it being the printer seemed really ludicrous. but i did it and it did indeed seem to work because it didn't happen anymore. for a couple months.

well now it just started again.

this time its a shorter time...don't know if something got reset somewhere (i didn't do it) so that it instantly restarts when it crashes...and the error messages are now mini-dumps, so maybe its a smaller crash, i don't know. i'm not knowledgable on this stuff.

but here's the error message:

A:blue screen multiple times a day

I did some searching on the web. One cause can be a faulty RAM module. Below is a quote from another site:


I ran Vista and Windows 7 before this. And it seems the problem has ceased. I removed the RAM then put it back in and have not encountered a problem. Maybe one of the modules had a bad connection and was causing that problem. But if that was actually the problem, who knows. I will find out if I get another error.

Again, it points to a RAM issue. It could be one of your modules is not fully "seated" into place. There is a little white locking tab on each end. If that is not in the upright position, then the module is not fully seated.

Have you tried to boot into safe mode? You can try that by Pressing F8 key, just as the system POST is complete. If the system boots in to safe mode, go to C:\windows\minidump, and see whether memory dump from that BSOD is recorded, if so, please attach it with your next post.

The 'smaller' partition on your HDD may be contain 'restore' partition from dell, which contains OS/other software which came pre-installed with it. So, I wouldn't advise you to get rid of it, unless it is not working due to some issue.

Hi I posted an ad previously and was given instructions on how to deal with the problem. However I encountered new problems, namely while trying to create the ark.txt file using GMER the program crashes during the scan when it gets to "Device\HarddiskVolumesShadowcopy 1". then I get a message that says the program has encountered a problem and has to close. when it closes the entire computer freezes and I need to use the emergency shutdown to restart the computer. Sometimes it goes straight to the blue screen of death, only it doesn't restart it just remains on the blue screen and I need to manually shutdown and restart. I was however able to create the DDS.txt log and the attach.txt log files. The original problem was the computer wasn't working normally, freezes, runs slow and applications work irregularly . Now this. I'm attaching the two log files I was able to create. Please advise further.
