Windows Vista problem - Graphics Card issue! Blue Screen!

Q: Windows Vista problem - Graphics Card issue! Blue Screen!

Hi,

I have a HP Pavillion laptop model dv9292eu. The graphics card is a Nvidia Geforce Go 7600 and I am having issues with it. It appears the drivers have been corrupted. I cannot boot into normal mode. I keep getting vertical green lines in the background.

When i get to the login screen the famous blue screen appears which states the following:

Stop 0X000016
Attempt to reset the device driver and recovery failed. Collecting crash dump.....100%

Then the computer restarts.

I then logged into Safe mode and the following message appeared:

Program Signature:
Problem = Bluescreen
O.S Version: 6.0.6001.2.1.0.768.3
locale ID = 2057

BCcode 116
BCP1 87D0F328

BCP4 00000002

C:\Users\Dave\AppData\local\temp\WER-111447-0.sysdata.xml
C:\Users\Dave\AppData\local\temp\WERBBCF.tmp.version.txt

I did some searching and i found 116 code is related to the graphics chip. I was advised to go to HP site and download the graphics drivers. I downloaded the first version of the graphics card driver for my laptop and executed the file in safe mode.

I restarted the laptop and the greenlines were gone and i actually got to the login screen!woo! but then when i logged in, the screen went blank for 10 mins and nothing appeared. I hit the power button to restart and the problem came back. Sorry for profanity but ***?

I then went back and downloaded the latest graphics card drivers and same problem happens.

I then found out there is a new BIOS update, i thought that may fix other problems that may be causing it. I downloaded the exe file and try executing it using admin account in safe mode. It said the following:

"Make sure you have administrator privileges. This service cannot be started in Safe Mode. Error code 1084".

The BIOS manufacturer is Phoenix.

Questions

How can i flash the BIOS because i cant login into normal mode(not safe mode)?

How can I solve my graphics card issue? As you know the graphics card is embedded on the motherboard.

Heres where i got the drivers from:

Your help will much appreciate if anyone shed any light on this.

Than you in advance.

Im pretty sure that my this is a problem with my graphics card. I would like a second opinion before I go forking out for a new one.

The other day I while playing a game a got a CTD error saying something along the lines of "nvlddkm has stopped responding but has recovered". Everything seemed fine after, but later on the computer froze up completely. When I restarted there was dotted vertical lines on the screen on the dell screen and the windows loading screen. Then I was greeted with the blue screen citing nvlddkm.sys as the problem.

I booted in safe mode and uninstalled the card, then reinstalled but Im still having the problem.

Some assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The card is a Nvidia 7900gs btw and Im running Vista 32bit btw

I'm not a tech guru, but if it does turn out to be a problem with the NVIDIA graphics card, do you know about the class action settlement related to many of their cards. Repair or replacement at NVIDIA's expense would help, yes? You can check to see if your computer is listed at http://www.nvidiasettlement.com/affectedmodels.html

Hey guys, my laptop's been acting up and I was hoping to get some advice on what to do. I'll start by saying that I don't know much about computers, which will likely become clearer and clearer with the more you read of what follows, so please bear with me.

Two days ago, I started getting green and pink specks/snow/lines showing up on my laptop's screen, and I have now graduated to blue and yellow specks/lines as well. My initial thought was that I could have a virus, so I ran a virus scan to no avail. I started poking around the internet looking for people w/ similar problems and saw some similar things, but nothing that quite matched my problem. I did however make a few observations that may or may not be helpful that I have listed below.

-emailed a screenshot of the desktop to a friend, who reported seeing the same green and pink specks on the image on his computer that I was seeing (can post if it would be helpful)
-no problems seem to be present when I boot into BIOS memory
-seems like there might be some relationship to the heat of the computer, as the specks/lines seemed to take longer to reappear after allowing the computer to cool off and then turning it on, whereas normally the problem would be evident immediately when I turn the computer back on after shutting down
-there is a definite relationship with the orientation of the computer (tilted) and location and degree of pressure on the case, if I push down hard enough in the right ... Read more

Longer posts mean more information and that's ALWAYS a God-send to anyone trying to troubleshoot a problem. So no apologies are necessary.

As for your problem, I'm going to agree with your roomie. There is very little you can do to fix this. Right now, the state of your computer follows one of the following options:

1) The graphics card is dying from years of use, and may be sensitive to heat now that it has been in use for a while. Computer components follow the same rule as any other piece of equipment or appliance. They're made with planned obsolescence. Eventually, things die for no better reason than that's what the company wanted. Your graphics card is overheating and it's causing what are known as "artifacts". Whenever you see specks or lines appearing at random, that's your graphics card screwing up and outputting random things onto the screen.

2) The graphics card has come loose and needs to be reseated. I'm not entirely sure about this one, but it might be the case given that pressing down on the computer solved your issue. BUT! (and this is a big but) I have no idea if you would be able to access and reseat it. Nor do I know how one would go about doing that with a laptop graphics card. I've never seen what they look like, how they're installed, replaced, or whatever else. You also risk breaking MORE things by opening it and trying to screw around in it. If you felt like spending a bit of money, you could ta... Read more

Hi everyone, I'm new here.

Quick history of my comp's problems:
-Bought it and from day 1 it had a blue screen error problem. I tried to track it down myself, but eventually sent it back to where I bought it and they fixed it telling me it was the motherboard.

-Got it back and there were no more blue screens. Hurray! However, while playing games I started noticing strange graphical artifacts (terrain stretching etc). It wasn't a huge problem though, so I ignored it (foolishly).

-The graphics card seemed to get worse and worse until eventually I started getting graphical glitches on the desktop (and following the mouse cursor) and it could no longer play most games without overheating and crashing. I had left it too long to do anything about it and it was out of warranty.

SKIP TO HERE TO AVOID HISTORY
-So I bought a new one to replace it (GeForce 8800GT), which I installed earlier this week. However I now have a blue screen of death problem again. I think it may be the same error I was getting when I first got the comp, but I can not be certain (because I didn't save the info). The problem is:

0x00000F4 (0x0000003 0x8.... 0x8... 0x8...)

So far this has crashed while I have been downloading a patch for and while playing World of Warcraft and has not occurred when running any other games or programs (some of them much more graphically intense), however if my previous experiences are anything to do by, the crashes can occur at any time.

Hi!

My brother got a new laptop a while ago. It's a Sony Vaio and the specs are following:
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T5500 1,66 GHz
2GB Ram
Nvidia Geforce Go 7400 GPU
Windows Vista

The thing is everything has been working fine for his needs. He's mainly been doing music composing in programs such as Sibelius. But he recently decided to see what kind of games he could get running on his computer. I have checked out his graphics card and it seems like an ok one for a laptop. But the thing is "I just have to say I'm a complete stranger to Vista" that in the performance information on his computer Vista gives him a score of 1,0 in both Graphics and Gaming graphics, saying he basically cant play anything at all.

This while nvidia claims on their homepage that "GeForce Go 7400 and 7300 lets you rip through all of today’s most advanced and cutting-edge games and applications. "

The computer wasn't that cheap and though I know it's not at all meant to function as a gaming machine, at least it should be able to run games to some extent.

I would really appreciate help with this issue. I'm not that good with either laptops or Vista so I'm sorry if im missing something very obvious here.

Hey,
I recently bought a Acer Aspire 5536G. It worked fine for the first week, but then it started having the BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) Problem. EVERY TIME i booted up. but i could get around it by booting up with a lower resolution. This seems to be an issue with my graphics card then, yes? some of my friends have had the same problems with laptops, PCs, etc. Any ideas? for now i'll just have to stick to booting up with this resolution (and sometimes i still get the BSOD), but it will be VERY hard, especially after installing updates or programs that require the computer to restart.
thanks in advance
P.S i sorta need this fixed sorta quickly, as it has work on it and my last resort is to just send it back to Acer... i would absolutely HATE to do that... as would most of you, i assume.

I get an empty Bluescreen when playing 3D games, mostly after a quite short time, but some games I can play up to a few hours. When I start a 3DMark 2005 test, the Bluescreen appears immediately after the first frame.
The event viewer displays the following error codes:
1000007f (0000000d, 00000000, 00000000, 00000000)
At the beginning some 8E errors appeared, but I didn't find them in the last Bluescreens.

Specs of the 5yr old PC:
Asrock K7NF2-RAID (RAID disabled)
Athlon XP 2500+ Barton @3200+ (12x200MHz)
Sapphire Radeon 9800Pro
2GB 400MHz DDR-RAM
320GB WD HDD
160GB Maxtor HDD
Creative X-Fi XtremeMusic

The Bluescreens also happen without overclocking.

The Bluescreens appears since two days after installing my new Zalman CPU-Cooler and like I said, just when I play games with newer 3D graphic.
Memtest86 and Prime95 ran hours long without any problems or bluescreens.

I already formatted the PC and reinstalled Windows with the newest drivers for all devices (but I also tried it with older ones / without soundcard / etc), but the problem is still existing.

So I expect the graphic card to be broken, but I just want to be sure before buying a new one.

Would be great, if someone can say for sure which part is broken or what I could do to test it further.

Best Regards,
Manuel

Ok, I'm pretty sure my new graphics card has been causing my computer to blue screen. I originally had it recommended, and installed, by the Geek Squad at Best Buy. The first thing I saw when I got home? Blue Screen. Didn't even boot to the login screen. I bring it back, they tinker around, and it boots ok, but I get periodic blue screens. There's a very rare blue screen out of nowhere, just blue screens. Most often, it blue screens right when it's supposed to show the login screen in the boot process. This was while I had vista.

Now, if I just kept booting windows normally, after a few attempts, it would succeed, and would not blue screen. A very big annoyance, but ultimately, I could use my computer in the end. I upgraded to Windows 7. Everything seemed to be working fine, at first. Then I installed ATI Catalyst Control Center, and upgraded the various drivers. Now it won't stop blue screening no matter how many times I boot it.

I'm in safe mode now. The listed files that it said help describe the issue for the Blue Screen are these:

Ok so here's the problem. My friend recently bought a PowerColor HD7850 2GB GDDR5 graphics card and after installing the card and the drivers, and restarting windows; the loading screen gets all kinds of lines across the screen up until the point where you enter in your log in information and then a blue screen. The AMD install manager is responsible for downloading and installing the latest driver for his device, so he didn't download a bad driver since it comes directly from AMD. Whenever he reattempts to install everything, he has to reinstall windows due to being stuck in the blue screen loop when he attempts to log in to windows regularly. Obviously without the drivers, windows can't detect his card. But any attempt to install the drivers causes the "tears" in the screen.

Here are the specs of his desktop
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k CPU @ 3.40GHZ
Motherboard and slots: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H -- 1x PCI-E 3.0 x16, 4x USB 3.0
8 gigs of Ram
Plus the aforementioned gpu.

Can anyone point us in the right direction as to what the problem may be?

He pretty much can't use his desktop because his card isn't working.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi,

I have recently upgraded to Vista and now decided to buy a new graphics card as the onboard stuff is pants.

So got myself a nice Nvidia 8500GT 256Mb PCIE.

Install should be simple just plug in the card (no addtional power connector which did surprise me!) and away we go.

But no plug in the card plug the monitor into the card switch on and pc boots but screen is blank. OK I thought it needs to be a bios thing so I set prority to PCIE and try again still nothing. Also only way for the onboard to work is to pull out the card.

At a bit of a loss and my skills have run out of anything usefull. Any Idea's??

Thanks

Hello all,

I really hope someone can help me with this problem, since I have been spending already quite some time on this error. So here is the deal:

A friend of mine has quite a mediocre computer and he decided that he wants to play Company of Heroes (which is a game from 2008 I think). As expected, his old videocard wasnt good enough, so I helped him find a good graphics card in order to play this game ad perhaps also others. Its an older system so it has only a AGP slot.

So he bought a Sapphire HD3650 AGP. And because his old PSU didnt supply the power this card needs, I looked for an better PSU which he bought as well. But now comes the problem. The old drivers were deleted by using some driver sweeper program. After that, new ATI drivers were installed, but after this the system did not recognize the new videocard. If I went to device manager, the VGA onboard would be listed a screenadapter.

Apparantly, this is something that happens to more people, since ATI has a hotfix for this problem available, which I downloaded and installed. After the installation was complete, a reboot was required which I of course did. When rebooting, I got the blue screen for a short moment, just before one expects the windows log on screen to appear, after which it immidiatly reboots.

This keeps on happening. I am able to go in safemode. If I go to device manager and turn the graphicscard off (which is indeed recognized now), I can reboot normally.

Ok guys, now the question is of cou... Read more

I have been getting multiple blue screen errors and I am about 80% sure that it's the graphics cards. I get these blue screens at complete random. Random such as completely idle on desktop with nothing running, restarting computer, putting computer to sleep, shutting it down, while play a game, etc.

A few errors I can remember are stop errors:

-0x000000a
-0x00000019
-0x000000D1
-0x000000D7

And many more. I was told that it was most likely my graphics card driver, which it's not considering I'm using the computer with only my integrated graphics card now.

But how come when my graphics card is installed, my computer still crashes regardless of have my integrated graphics card?

No DMP files included in upload please try this method

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.

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.

For christmas this year i recieved a brand new ATI Radeon X1300 PRO, which i have just installed in my pc. It installed ok, and then i restarted the computer, and now every time i logon, and the ATI Catlyst program activates (makes the screen refresh) i get a blue screen of death stating that the file 'system32k.sys' has caused the problem.

I used to have a very similar problem when i used my onboard graphics before christmas, but this happened when i tried to play any games which use Direct x, and it would say that my graphics had 0MB memory, when it actually had 64MB.

Has anyone got any ideas???

This is my build:

Gigabyte P965 DS3
C2D E6420
Saphire X1950 Pro
2 Gig Wintec RAM
Maxtor 320 G 7200 RPM HD
WD 160 GB 5400 RPM

I used partition magic to partition off half of my Primary Maxtor HD (used Linux ext.3), then formatted my second HD to Linux Ext. 3 (don't know why, figured I would Install Linuxs on either the second partion of my primary HD, or on my second HD so I formatted both), when setup was done and reboot prompted I started getting these red dotted lines accross my entire screen. I thought maybe it might have had something to do with me just overclocking my CPU and maybe something overheating, but when I checked temperatures, they are only at 42 Celcius.
When I restarted in windows to try and troubeshoot, the lines were then blue and my ATI control center said that the communication from my Graphics card was in error (or something like that). Based on the alerts from my graphics controller I think that it is the graphics card. I just re-installed windows and the red dott rows are still there. But when I changed my resolution from 800 x 600 to 1024 x 768 only 4 columns of red previously dots, now verticle streaks. Now if I reinstall the ATI driver, there are red streaks all accross my screan and when my OS starts, after a while of blacking on and off, the screen will stay black, as if my PC is off, so I have to reboot. What has happened to my graphics card?

If the minidump folder is empty,you may need to enable minidumps by following these steps Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

I've had this issue for a very long time now, and it's still something I'm trying to work on, because if I don't fix it, it's going to ruin the games I play by blacking my screen out all the time.

The graphics card I have is a Nvidia GeForce 9200. I have an Acer Aspire Windows 8 desktop (Professional), with an AMD Athlon II X2 215 Processor. The memory is 4.0GB

Yes, I'll admit, a crappy PC for playing lots of games in general and to be honest, a bit like dogcrap. lol I bought this back in 2009, and it was on sale at the time, because I had to replace my falling apart PC before it that could have been better.

The main issue I am having revolves around updating from Windows Update. I had to start doing it manually because the screen was blacking out every time I clicked on Windows 8 to be the OS I want to start up, where my monitor flicks on and off repeatedly with no stop in sight, even though I can hear the start-up screen in the background of it all. I think the issue is mainly with trying to install ANY Windows 8 update (because I have tried), and the same goes with updating Nvidia (manually and through Windows Update). I have had this issue for more than 4 months now, and it's becoming maddening. I'm not sure if I should just hope I'll win a PC giveaway at some point, or hope my tax refund this year will help me get another PC that might be better than this pain in the butt.

A:Issue with Graphics Card and Blank Screen?

I've had the black screen issue with the 9800gt which I think is a newer card than the 9200.

My black screen issues arose as soon as you booted into Win 8. I would have got a few minutes of usage but when entering the desktop area - bingo, black screen of death.

As my card like yours, is an older card, it will not run on the newer drivers. After many weeks of frustration, I installed the older 295.73 drivers from the Nvida site and hide any updates that windows offers.

Basically due to the age of the card, I'm stuck with these drivers for ever more. My guess you have the same problem. I'm assuming that at one stage the card worked until updates were applied via Windows?

I booted in safe mode and ran a utility called driversweeper befor I installed the downgraded drivers. Might be worth a blast!

Hey everyone, been a while now

So i got a new computer, happened to be an emachine. Knowing that emachines usually fail within a year, I replaced the powersupply with a Rosewill 300w ATX Power Supply. Since my older computer fried due to a powersupply failure, I decided to test my old parts in the new computer. I added 512MB Kingston ValueRAM, a GeForce FX5500 PCI Video card, my old hard drive from my old machine, and a new optical drive, a CD-RW 48x drive. After installing and configuring all the parts, and chaecking that all the parts worked, I went on to play World of Warcraft. After about 2 hours of play the screen began to flicker, and my framerate went down to around 7 fps. Then the screen went totally blank and the monitor read [[NO SIGNAL]]. I tried installing the latest drivers for the video card, but the same problem happened again. To me, it seems like it was overheating. The fans were running at full blast. What do you guys think?

Thanks in advance

However, as soon as I typed in my password and hit enter, the screen went black again, no cursor, no desktop and unresponsive. Sometimes some funny gray lines would appear on the screen but otherwise it was black.

Hey there community, I apologise for the need for help and the fact I'm a new member but I hope you are able to help me

My computer has been running perfectly fine for the two years I've had it (Dell XPS 420). The other day as I was watching a film on it, it suddenly blue-screened and restarted straight away followed by the boot up sequence being joined by a range of strange colours appearing all over the screen. I can only describe the colours at the boot-up as; similar to red tetris blocks all over the screen followed by lines of grey and dotted greys horizontal and vertically along the screen.

I am able to see what's going on in the background when these colours appear but it usually doesn't reach the Vista login stage. Presently, I'm using the computer and it's working fine, however, it has already gone a strange colour this morning whilst I was using it and a forced shutdown was then again followed by the strange colours.

I'd appreciate any input you may have that could help me solve this problem

Ok, I'll try and get to the point, this is a long issue and I am quite simply fresh out of ideas. I have had no problems booting vista to date before experiencing this. I'm normally pretty aware of having the newest updates for my laptop, whether that be updated hardware drivers or windows updates.

Yesterday, whilst searching the internet, I downloaded the trial version of Alcohol 120%, a cd burning software. I got it from the offical site. As I ran the install, and 'OK'ed all the UAC warnings the computer stalled and promptly crashed. I had time to notice a windows update icon running in the startup bar, but was not sure at the time if that was related...

The computer reset with the error recovery screen, and I chose the 'Start Windows Normally' option. The computer went through to the startup screen, I typed in my password, it loads up my desktop to the point where there is a single icon in the taskbar and then promptly throws up a jittering blue screen. The computer restarts again. No matter what I try, it blue screens on this point and restarts.

Now despite a pretty dim view I have of Vista, one thing I heard it excelled in was data recovery options. Yet none of these help me. I have already done the following to end up witht he same result:
1. Running in Safe Mode (w/ Networking and w/ Command Prompt)

Hi, I play CS:GO on the computer pretty often and the computer I use wouldn't necessarily be called a reliable or good computer for that matter.

I let it do it's thing, but during the reboot, the resolution had been changed ( black bars on top/bottom and both sides ) and there were a bunch of random zig zag lines on the screen. My normal resolution is 1920x1080 and now since the crash yesterday I can't change it any higher than 1280x1024. I've tried updating my drivers and nothing has changed it. A friend told me to try and open Nvidia Control Panel and it says something along the lines of "Nvidia display settings are not available - There is no display currently connected to an Nvidia GPU". I have no idea what that means as I am by no means a computer wiz.

Trying to fix my friends laptop but running into a weird issue.

Using Windows Vista Home Premium
Graphics Card is Standard Intel 945

When booting windows normally I get a solid blue screen (not BSOD) after the login screen. Boots into safemode normally.

Clean for viruses/malware

Tried the following:

1) Plugged in an external monitor (VGA Port) and it brought up a display window on pc showing it was currently in multiple monitor mode (still blue screen in backround). Blue Screen on monitor as well. Switched to Single Display and now just blue screen on laptop display. Connected to TV with S-Video. Blue screen on TV as well.

2) Changed Resolution as well as 16 bit/32 bit color. No Effect.

3) Uninstalled/Reinstalled Graphics Driver. No Effect.

4) Tried creating guest account and logging in normally. Won't get past login screen. Just continuously loading.

My encrypted Thinkpad T470 (2yrs old) has suddenly begun "crashing" during use. This doesn't seem to be triggered by any particular programs or user behaviour that I can identify, and once it happens it will occur again relatively soon if I restart it without a long rest. What happens is that the screen goes black, and white boxes flicker in and out. Sometimes I see white lines near the top, which I associate with graphics card issues, but I've never seen this white boxes pattern before. The laptp will not project on an external monitor, so it's not just a display issue. It does not fully shut down when this happens, but rather requires a force quit in order to restart. It restarts normally until it crashes again. Any ideas on what is happening here? Am I on the right track to suspect graphics card issues? Thanks.

Hello,

My friends computer was experiencing issues related to viruses/malware so I started running several different scans to try and remove the virus. She previously did not have any anti-virus programs so the first thing I did was install AVG2013. I then ran a scan and removed some minor threats. I then downloaded malwarebytes and ran a full system scan.

About 10 minutes into the malwarebytes scan the system crashed and the blue error screen popped up. It was the same one as the one shown here:

Now whenever I start up the computer the blue screen appears and the computer crashes before I can even get to the log on screen. I still have access to the safe mode though so I have been trying to fix things by running a few other scans such as Spybot Search and Destroy and ccleanerbut nothing is working.

I have since removed Spybot, ccleaner, and malwarebytes but still have AVG. I attempted a system restore but it failed.

Could someone please help me!

RELEVANCY SCORE 62

I am using an HP laptop with Vista,32 the display adapter is NVIDIA GE Force 7000. Whenever I use Windows Movee Maker and publish my file, the "publish to" menu stays on screen until I reboot as if it is burned in my monitor. I have tried closing and reopening the movee maker, closing all programs and reopening (then it is on the desktop) but the "publish to" does not disappear.

I publish a lot of movees as I make and edit photos, websites, etc. for a profession. So it is very annoying. Also I'm afraid it will burn into my screen.
Any suggestions?
