BSOD when using DVD drive

Q: BSOD when using DVD drive

Been having a lot of BSOD recently. Every time I try to burn a disc, I come back to it and this has happened now with two different drives (just upgraded to a blu ray burner). The computer has also been locking up often within 15 minutes of starting up and requires a hard reset. I imagine if I left it be during those times, it'd ultimately result in another BSOD.

I'll try uploading the information as per instructions, but I manually wrote down the message BSOD...

"Stop: 0x0000000F4 (0x000000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA8010F95100, 0xFFFFFA8010F958E0, 0xFFFFF800037DD460)"

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: BSOD when using DVD drive

Welcome bonjourmate.

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump. You first search them manually in the default path,
C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump.

If that location is empty, Follow the tutorial:
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Wait for the next crash, and then post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Anyway, a stop 0xF4 is storage related. For it, what you are to do initially is:
Update your SSD's Firmware (not needed if you are not using a SSD)
Re-seat the sata and power. (for all drives including Optical and internal disks)
Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Let us know the results.

Hiya

I've just finished building my new computer and I'm getting BSOD errors when first formatting a hard drive and secondly (after a successful format) installing a game on it.

My boot up SSD drive seems to be fine, it's just my other hard drive.

64bit Windows 7 Home premium. Full version I bought a a few days ago. The whole computer is new. If you need any further information, let me no.

8GB RAM. Intel Core i5 2500k CPU. Radeon 7850 graphics. 120ish SSD. 1Tb hard drive. Asus P8Z68-V Pro gen3 motherboard.

Edit: having just seen a notice, I've updated the post to contain two attachments. Or atleast I think I have :\

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hi all. When booting up my PC it causes a BSOD at the Window password screen displaying the error 'Driver_irql_less_or_not_equal'. The only way I can start the PC is by booting whilst hitting F8 and choosing 'Last known good configuration'.


I've tried to do a system restore twice but it caused a BSOD both times. I am running Windows 7 64 bit.

Please help?!

Thank you.

Hey Guys, need some help here also.

Here's the scenario. Last time when i use my dvd-drive, it didn't occured any BSOD, but later on i think around after few months, it start showing me BSOD sometimes when i'm using my dvd-drive.
Then i thought is the hardware failure, since the dvd-drive is quite old & slow already, somemore is an IDE drive.
Then i changed another new SATA dvd-drive, but still sometimes it still give me BSOD. I thought maybe is the power cable fault, then i switch another power cable, still the same. I can't find the root cause of this problem, please help.

Since the recent November update I have been getting BSOD once or twice a day. What follows is the on screen notification:

Driver IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL(dxgnms1.sys)

What puzzles me most (not that I know much about this anyway) is that when I restart it is not the (C) Drive which has the OS which is scanned and repaired, it is the (D) Drive with apps / programs, docs and media. This has not happened before, is it unusual? Has it anything to do with the fact that I have just made full use of the new MOVE option to transfer apps to (D)? I understand that it likely to be a driver issue and thought drivers would be on (C)?

Can someone explain this to me before I try to apply the Forum instructions for reporting BSOD?

Hi, im keep getting the BSOD when i use my cd drive to access a cd. I have had a look for the mini dump files in c:\windows\minidump and my computer doesnt seem to be writing any. I have even done a search for .mdmp files and have found a few old files but nothing that relates to anything recent. the error codes that i am getting are:

I had 'Magicdisc' installed and it was working fine until a few days ago.I started getting blue screens due to the file 'mcdbus.sys' so i tried uninstalling 'MagicDisc' (which wasnt easy) and got rid of it using a command line to uninstall it. I wasn't sure if it uninstalled completely so I used 'CCleaner' and deleted faulty registeries. Then I installed 'Daemon Tools Lite' as I have to have a virtual drive and during installation, as soon as it said 'setting up virtual drive' my system gave a blue screen, this time due to the file 'dtsoftbus01.sys' and so I uninstalled the Daemon tools lite after logging into safe mode.

I really need a virtual drive software, but so far I've figured out that as soon as I install a program that creates virtual drive, my system starts giving blue screens. The system works fine otherwise.

Please help !!

Hi all, I've been having this weird problem and this site looked like a good place to ask about it because of the support I've seen. So wooooo first post~!
Anyway, whenever I unplug one certain flash drive (a Kingston DataTraveller SE9) my laptop bluescreens with the error "SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED". I can't figure out why for the life of me! I did, however, figure out that the flash drive is recognized as a local disk and not a removable one. This issue only applies to my laptop, that's it; the drive works perfectly fine on any other computer. I can still read and write to it no problem. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

A:Unplugging Certain USB Drive Causes BSOD

Some USB flash drives act like a hard drive which Windows lists as local disk instead of removable. You will notice that when you delete anything on the USB drive labeled local the deleted items go to the recycle bin. On a USB flash drive labeled removable the items are not sent to the recycle bin.
 
Download USBdeview. Run the program Highlight any listing for Kingston DataTravler and press the red X to remove. Reboot the computer and attach the Kingston again. Do you get the error?

Long story short: Get bsod, wipe c drive to remove os, cannot reinstall windows as i dont have "drivers"



My computer is neither new nor old, it has a decent amount of ram and fairly decent specs along with 64bit windows 7 OS and has been getting the dreaded BSOD!!!!!

After having a look around on youtube and google i came to the conclusion the problem was with a driver that had either been installed or needed to be installed. Im not very tech savvy therefore had no idea what to do! At the time these blue screens were happening i had no alternative means of connecting to the internet other than my phone and couldnt start the computer in safe mode...



When tapping a certain button upon startup (F8 i think) i would be taken to a system repair screen. This screen had several options, for example system repair, boot from back-up, and advanced options. after trying all of these options and non of them working (i had no computer backup) i decided to use the advanced options. I suspect these options were added by the man whom built the computer as the name of the advanced options was very wierd... Anyway!!

It seems like a driver conflict (classpnp.sys) assuming that DV is fully compatible with XP, it is not enough to disable CIS because of the background processes.

Hi.

I've been having loads of PC problems recently and its getting me down. Just as I thought I had it stable I noticed this.

I keep getting Bugcode_USB_Driver blue screen. But it only seems to happen overnight when i'm not there to see if anything is causing it. But if its happening while the PC isn't really being used how on earth is it happening?

The only thing running is O&O Defrag. One of my external drives (1TB Seagate) is highly fragmented and it seems like it will take hours to complete, but it never manages to finish because while leaving it running I wake up to a BSOD. I manage to have it running a few hours a day but no BSOD occurs, just when I check it after a night of sleep!

Could this be the problem? My external drive is going dodgy?

I've tried uninstalling all usb drivers and changed the usb port its using. And just to eliminate things, a system overclock would not cause this right? Its not running too hot and has been stable for months before now.

This is incredibly frustrating and would like some advice and help.
Thanks

I have a Windows 7 laptop (11 months old) and have had no trouble until last week when i tried to download the new IOS 4.2 for my Ipad.I left the PC running, and downloading the file fine, but when i returned, the screen was black with a message saying disk cable loose, no bootable options

I rebooted the PC, and now every time i try to download a file from the internet that is bigger than a couple of MB, it crashes to a BSOD. The hard drive has started to click slightly when i am downloading/installing files/programs.

Can anyone help please?

Cheers

Billy

A:BSOD & Clicking Hard Drive

Clicking HDD is not good, get it back where you bought it while it's under warranty.

You probably have lost all data too, hope it's backed up, same thing happened to me and l started to back up after that.

Good luck

I hope someone can assist in deciphering this crash dmp file. I used a bluescreen view which tells me the cause was the ntoskrnl.exe. I have two items of hardware that i have added since last week, a Dispaly port To DVI cable for the monitor and an external hard drive to the USB 3.0 port.

Thank you in advance

I'm running RTM x64 and other than this one issue it runs perfect. I'm really liking it overall, great performance too. But this one issue really bothers me since I have lots of things on other drives. Basically if I add another hard drive it starts to boot, sits on the Windows logo screen for 30 secs or so then BSOD. It's not just one drive either, I tried it with 3 different drives. All of which work fine and I can put them in any other(non-Win 7) system and they work with no issues. I can shut down, connect a drive, boot into another OS and access what's on them but that's really a pain in the ass and shouldn't be necessary, I should be able to have 2 or 3 drives without an issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please copy the contents of your \Windows\Minidump folder to another location on your machine, zip them up, and upload the zip archive here. Analysis of those files may help to pinpoint the cause of the problem.

Hi,

I have an old laptop with a broken CD drive and it needed a new operating system.

So, i took the hard drive out and plugged it into another computer and installed Windows XP onto it.

I plugged the hard drive back into the laptop and all i get is a blue screen and then it restarts.

I have added an attachment of the blue screen.


Is it because i installed the operating system on the hard drive on a different computer??

More than likely, yes.

Swap out the bad CD drive and install Windows on the HDD in the system it belongs to.

Hello! I've searched in here, and found some good threads on the following, but none that ended badly, as mine has! Any help?

Dual Boot Win7 x64 beta
XP x32

After installing Win7 into a new partition, the OS started up fine from the new dual boot screen, but I didn't have access to my Win XP partition from within explorer. In disk management, I was able to add a letter to my WinXP volume (I took the next available "O") and it popped up in explorer no problem. However, after restarting, Win 7 begins to load, then BSODs way too fast to think about catching with camera. I got the option to run startup repair at the restart, and I did so. The conclusion there was that I had plugged in a device during the last session that was now causing problems. That is bogus, unless that device is my newly lettered partition. I read many a thread in here about re-lettering a partition that had lost its letter in the intall (usually the other OS volume in a dual-boot environment), but didn't see those posters then have issues upon restart.

I can boot into XP, although here now NONE of my drives have letters.

Any Help? I really was diggin' my win7 time, and really enjoyed taking advantage of all my RAM and x64 versions of CS4 and CAD.

Thanks.

Which virtual machine clients do you have installed on your system? I can't find any in the Program Groups section of MSINFO32.

Anyhow, please remove the current virtual machine software. Then install a freshly downloaded copy. If you still get BSOD's in the virtual machines, delete the virtual machines and reinstall them on the virtual machine clients.


Also, please remove these older drivers that were loaded at the time of the crash. Don't use Windows Update or the Update drivers function of Device Manager.

Hi,

I have been getting BSODs randomly for the past few days. The OS has been stable for a couple of years, and the only things that could have caused it that I can think of are:

I'm running Windows XP with all the latest updates on a Dell XPS 410. My on-board DVD drive is an HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-H31N. Whenever I try to load a disk in the drive, it crashes. Insert, hum, crash. BSOD. Also, if there's a disk in the drive, the computer will go into a BSOD before it can boot. I have a few suspicions about Alcohol 120% causing this, but I've tried uninstalling it, and that hasn't fixed the problem. I also uninstalled several other programs (MagicISO, IsoBuster, PowerISO) and not seeing the problem change. DVDIdle might, I guess, be another possible culprit, though I don't know. I would think the fact that I can crash before even making it to the startup screen disqualifies a certain amount of software. But if you think I should go ahead and uninstall a bunch of things again, I will. I've tried flashing the firmware. It hasn't helped. I can't seem to find any new drivers for it. I've tried googling and such, but I haven't found a solution there either. This one really has me stuck.

The error is a Stop 0x000000B8 with four all-zero attributes.
My external DVD drive doesn't have this problem.
And no, I don't remember the last time I used this drive without the problem. I only discovered it today.

For your pleasure, I have included a picture of my BSOD.

Hi all, I have a Dell XPS 15 (L502X) with Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) and I just recently had to replace the hard drive, it's only been a year or year and a half. The past few days I've been getting random system failures...the system just shuts off without warning. Upon booting up, Windows Problem Reporting reports a BSOD with BCCode 7a. Research confirms this is most definitely a hard drive issue, where there are bad sectors or a damaged drive.

According to HDSentinel, my HD Health is only 76%!! I'm wondering if it would be worth it to run a full surface check and full disk check with HDSentinel. It will take 12-24 hours to complete both..as I have a 1TB hard drive.. and I will lose all of my data...but it's either that or buy a new hard drive for $120.

My question is: would it be worth it to try and save the hard drive? Or, is it too far gone, with only 76% health? Also, what might cause such a drastic change in the HD Health? The laptop hasn't had any sudden shocks, hits, or anything, but all of the sudden I am getting 4-5 BSOD's per day, all 7a. S.M.A.R.T. status is OK, but obviously the drive is having issues. I ran dskchk on C:/ and it didn't help.. would SeaTools possibly be able to save it? It's a Seagate drive. I'd just like some outside opinions--I've worked on computers for years but I've never had to/wanted to save a dying hard drive. I've heard it's possible to repair damaged drives using tools ...

Last week I installed my new Hitachi Deskstar 1.5TB SATA 6.0 Gb/s hard drive. Windows recognized it right away and everything went smoothly as I transferred files over. A day later I started getting generic DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD's, but they only happened right after I woke up the computer from Sleep Mode. Before I installed the HD my computer was absolutely perfect with no problems so this made me think it was a driver issue. Updated all drivers with Driver Genius, but still BSOD after waking up computer (they are random, it doesn't happen after every wake).

My motherboard has two SATA III 6.0Gb/s ports. The first is occupied by my Crucial C300 SSD booting Win7 Ultimate x64, and the other with my new Hitachi. These are controlled by a Marvell 6.0Gb/s driver. I also have two SATA 3.0gb/s devices connected: a WD Black 1TB HD and an ASUS Optical drive. I'm starting to think it has something to do with either the Marvell Controller, or how these three hard drives are configured, but honestly I have no idea at this point. I'm usually well versed when it comes to troubleshooting BSOD's or any general problem with my PC but I cannot figure this out for the life of me so I'm hoping you guys can help me out!

P.S.

My old Dell 8250 was giving out so I thought I would purchase a portable backup drive to use for my pix and music until I could receive my new Dell XPS 435. I purchased a Clickfree portable backup which I just loved, easy as plugging it in and everything was automatic! The problem started when I tried to plug it into any of the usb ports on my new XPS. Vista64 would recognize it, load the drivers and then the BSOD would pop up with a "System Exception Error", with the following text:

He also had a Clickfree, and when he tried his on my pc, I still got the BSOD.

Hello,
Background info:
I was surfing (IE 11?)the web to find a free stream of an nba game, clicked a link and had several screens flash up saying stuff needed to be updated, X'ed out of two, did alt f4 on one. As i was trying to terminate the popups, screen immediately tore apart, BSOD, and the machine rebooted by itself. Upon reboot, no boot drive was found according to the black screen at start up, this occurred several times, we quickly unplugged the ethernet cable and shut the computer down and unplugged the other hard drives in the computer.
With only the dvd drive and the c boot drive plugged in, I restarted the computer and I inserted Windows 7 Ultimate disk and was unable to repair anything but did manage to restore a previous restore point from around September 13, 2013. System will boot but is acting strange and looks like its stripped. Desktop icons are gone, black wall paper and Norton is missing. I have not plugged the other hard drives back in at this time, so I don't know if documents are missing or corrupt at this point.
I did renew Norton in April 2014, so maybe that has something to with it, since the restore point is before the new version of Norton.
At this point, I'm guessing doing the restore was a mistake.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Gary

All software is genuine. Have performed full malware and antivirus check. Results are clean.

Hello baobab. Welcome to Seven Forums.

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (50)

DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID: WIN7_DRIVER_FAULT

PROCESS_NAME: System
BCCode x50 generally refers to Faulty Ram.
RAM test with Memtest86+
Certain Bug Check Codes(BCCodes) or combination of BCCodes, are indicative of faulty RAM. Memtest86+ is an offline program specifically written to test RAM and uncover errors. Memtest86+ tries to verify that the RAM will accept and correctly retain arbitrary patterns of data written to it, and that there are no errors where different bits of memory interact, and there are no conflicts between memory addresses. Memtest86+ is open source, which means it is free to use.

Systems may have one or more sticks of RAM. These individual sticks are called DIMM. If Memtest86+ finds ANY errors, most likely, you have defective RAM. There are some cases where the DIMM slot, themselves, can be bad.

**Important!**
Should you receive any errors during the tests, stop the test. You will need to test each stick independently in each DIMM slot. Follow proper ESD Safety! Remove all but the first stick. Resume testing. If you receive(or dont) errors, note on a piece of paper that DIMM 1 failed(or passed) in Slot A1. Stop the test, move the stick to slot A2, resuming testing and taking notes in this manner, until all DIMMs have been tested in all DIMM sl... Read more
