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: [SOLVED] BSOD happened 4 times in the past hour

Hi,

All of the attached DMP files are of the DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (d1) bug check.

This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.

A driver tried to access an address that is pageable (or that is completely invalid) while the IRQL was too high. This bug check is usually caused by drivers that have used improper addresses.

If we take a look at the call stack:

We can see a UrlFilter.sys (IObit Malware Fighter) call directly before tons and tons of network related calls, and then the bugcheck. This indicates that IObit Malware Fighter is causing network related conflicts. I've dealt with lots of IObit conflicts recently so this is quite interesting to see again.

Remove IObit Malware Fighter ASAP.

Patrick

Hi,
I built my own desktop 4 monthes ago with windows 7. The BSOD started to happen after I installed a new Microsoft LifeCAM. But not sure this is a real casue for this issue. Recently BSOD happened more often than before. As today it happened 5 times in one hour. I ran the memory test (Memtest86+) and did not get any errors after 8 passes. Also I unplugged all the USB ports from the PC. But BSOD seems never give up. Here is my PC hardware configuration list. Please let me know if you need anything more from me.

These are related to memory management caused by your Symantec. I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials

I've been having trouble with my Windows 10 (64 bit) desktop computer. At 5 past every hour, without fail, it gets BSoD. Doesn't matter how long the computer has already been on for, and it doesn't matter what I'm doing on the computer. If it's 10:05, 2:05, 3:05, or whatever, it crashes. This just started happening last night.

I realized the crash pattern once I installed BlueScreenView and saw that each of the minidump files were timestamped with the same XX:05 time. Also, in all the crash files, the main culprits listed are either "ntoskrnl.exe", "aswSnx.sys", or both. The only exception is the first one (happened 6/15/2016 at 9:05:16 PM), which also lists "k57nd60a.sys" as a culprit.

To clarify, each BSoD has been classified as SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION.

UPDATE: Within the Task Scheduler I found a task called "GoogleUpdateTaskMachineUA" that was scheduled to start at 2:05 am every day and then repeat every hour for a duration of 1 day. The last time it was carried out was 9:05 pm yesterday, which exactly coincides with the first instance of the BSoDs. I disabled it and it seems to have stopped the BSoDs from happening. Now the question is, how can I fix the task so that it works properly? Because I'd ideally like to still have it running in order to keep my Google Apps updated.

hi, I really need helps from you guys..
I really depressed 'bout this frequently BSOD things..
here are few things I think you guys should to know:
1.the age of the hardwares: all new (MoBo, proc, memory, harddisk, and the power supply), its only 17 days old except the case, monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Yea ive just bought them..
2.first I've installed windows 7 entreprise x86, then these problems (BSOD and display driver stopped working and recovered things) started to freak me up. then i unistalled the windows and i changed it with windows XP SP3, but the same things still happened (except the stopped display driver that could be auto recovered because winXP has no WDDM, but still the stopped display driver happened and i must restart my pc to work things up). because im gettin' sick to restart my computer all the time i decided to uninstall the winXP then i changed the windows to what I'm using now, win7 ultimate x86, but the same problems still occured.
3.the BSOD prombelms were about: memory_management (mostly happened), win32k.sys, page_fault_in_nonpaged_area, and cdd.dll
4.I have all my drivers updated, I downloaded all the newest driver right form the gigabyte's site.
5.the BSOD could happened ANY time: when I was exploring my files, watching videos, surfing (with firefox 5.0 and G Chrome 12), and online gaming (seal or heroes of newerth - i have no offline games).

oh god I really need help 'bout these things.

A:BSOD (help please) - up to 5 times per hour.

You have a usb modem serial device driver that is crashing.
ewusbmdm.sys
USB Modem/Serial Device Driver - "Huawei Mobile Connect" package
http://www.huawei.com/mobileweb/en/p...03&pageId=null
or try the carrier that provided the modem

The driver you are currently using for the device is not a windows 7 driver and is most likely leading to a majority of your crashes.

Use the link I've provided above to attempt to resolve the problem. The device should have a model number/serial on it somewhere to help guide you to a download.

If you receive another crash after resolving this driver please upload the new dump file created by that crash so we can continue to assist.

of course not using the device may also solve your problem.

Dump information follows for reference.

So I've now been getting an increased number of BSoDs whenever I run Matlab. The version I run is R2012b. For many months, Matlab seemed to work without ever BSoDing, but it just suddenly started to frequently produce BSoDs for some reason. One BSoD happened in the middle of coding, and another BSoD happened right when I shut down the program. I've attached three BSoD files here.

I do use Matlab to analyze very large (0.5 GB size) datasets, although I'm careful to make sure that they don't take up too much virtual memory. I have installed quite a few toolboxes on there, though many of them are vital for what I need to do.

My computer hasn't produced any BSoDs for any other application.

I've attached the dump logs of three of them . I've updated all my drivers to the latest version, and the BSoDs still happen. Hard drive and RAM are totally fine. I've also attached what BlueScreenView displays below (just look at the December 2013 ones - the other ones are unrelated).

In the part 'system' is the option to enable/disable hardware acceleration.

Hi chelsie.

The zip you uploaded is not appearing to be the output of our SF Diag tool. Moreover it does not contain any crash dumps.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

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

Dont run any disc cleanup tool before you upload another zip.

Hi -

Probable issues with RAM are a likely cause.

Run memtest86+ - http://www.techsupportforum.com/2863029-post5.html

Before you run memtest86+. . . .

- remove Daemon Tools/ Alcohol 120

- Run the Driver Verifier -- http://www.sysnative.com/0x1/Driver_Verifier.htm

I see several old drivers in the dumps. If BSODs are software related, D/V can help find the culprit.

Hi all,
My laptop compaq suddenly got BSOD error yesterday and caused me a lot of headache. I googled and did all of solutions like : Safe mode, last good condition ,check disk,scan driver,...restore computer many time but BSOD still happens ...except openning my laptop to see RAM ...
using Win 7 64 bit with AMD chip ...I ran the SF Dianostic tool and a box poped up noticed about :" can not handle the file EventApp.txt ,if you click continue button SF will ignore this error and go on scanning" and I quickly click to continue the scanning .
The BSOD caution is " page fault in nonpage area "
below is my SF tool log zipped
thank you all for your reading and helping.

A:BSOD happened every 1 hour and Error "pfn_list_corrupt "

Hello,

This is a newish computer (Built in July 2009) and up until a few days ago I haven't had any issues with it. For whatever reason though, while I was playing the Starcraft 2 beta, it crashed to BSOD and had to restart. The event viewer was largely unhelpful in figuring out the problem, so I went ahead and ran a few utilities to make sure my computer is running as well as I think it could be (CCleaner, Spybot, etc., just to get rid of junk). All seemed fine until last night when I went to shut down my computer and it blue screened again, with once again an unhelpful event file entry.

I only have the minidump from last night's crash (when I shut down my system), as when I ran the utilities to clean up my comp the minidump from the first crash was deleted. Hopefully someone can help me out with this... Your time is much appreciated.

My potentially relevant system information:

A:BSOD over past few days at random times

This is the second Starcraft2 issue I've seen today - I wonder if there's an issue with the beta? I'd check their forums to see if it's the problem.

BUT there is a driver on your system that's known to cause BSOD's - so I'd suggest that you replace the ASACPI.SYS driver (dated from 2005) with the most recent one available for your system from the Asus website ( ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt ). It'll be listed under the Utilities section and is known as the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit" .

The memory dump points to a memory corruption as the issue - so I'd try this free memory test just to rule that out: Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link).

More info on the STOP 0x7E error here: BSOD Index (Please note the "Usual causes" listed at the top of that section).

Beyond that, I'd wait and see if there were further BSOD's. If so, post the memory dump files and we'll move on from there.

Summary of the BSOD:

Code:
Built by: 7600.16539.amd64fre.win7_gdr.100226-1909

I've been getting these at random times, it'll do it no matter what programs I'm running. I use chrome, firefox, and SR ware iron for browsers. trillian for messaging. sometimes have open excel. and always have my sticky note up. i don't have a firewall or antivirus installed, as i'm pretty confident in my ability to not get viruses (i've had this system almost a year with no problems) but i do run housecall every couple months to be sure. i also ran a malware detector yesterday and it came up clear.
i did a system restore to the 14th, when i had installed the new java upgrade (java 7, update 17) and didn't solve the problem. i did a system restore to the 7th (automatic restore point) and didn't get the BSOD for about 12 hours so i thought it was fixed. now it's back.
at one point yesterday, i couldn't even boot windows without the BSOD - would just give me a continuous loop of "loading" "bsod" and options to start normally or run startup repair (which didn't help)
i used the SF diagnostic tool and attached the zip as instructed.

thanks for any help you can give!

A:several BSOD in past two days at random times

After looking at your mini, its a hardware issue.

Have you overclocked your cpu?

Have you installed any new hardware?

Have you tried running memtest?

How hot does your CPU get?

It sounds like a failing hard drive, what kind of HDD do you own.

Hi, I'm new here, I'm sure you'll all be able to tell from my lack of computer knowledge...

I've been experiencing a BSOD every time I leave my laptop idle for even a short amount of time. I had a similar issue with the same computer back in April, when I took it to best buy to be checked (MISTAKE!), I was told it was virus related and they performed a full system restore. Now, I'm getting more BSOD and I have no clue why... I have Norton and I recently downloaded malwarebytes.org free version and it picked up on one treat and two tracking cookies. I still got a BSOD even after quarantining the threats.

I went ahead and made up a minidump zip file... If anyone needs more info from me I'll do my best to try and find it for you.

Thanks!

A:BSOD while laptop is idle... 3 times in the past 24 hours

So I started playing TF2 again recently, so I've been using my brother's Xornet mouse. However, since I started using it, it would occasionally just stop working. Also, I've been getting BSOD screens that say "BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER" (I didn't have enough time to write down all the other information on that screen, but I changed the settings so it doesn't automatically restart, so I should have them if it happens again). The BSODs seem to happen at completely random times, except for one thing: they are always preceded by random "USB unplug noises" (i.e. the "da-dun" sound that you hear when you unplug a USB device). These noises can start happening up to 30 minutes before the BSOD, and they seem to happen at random times anywhere from 2 seconds to 3 minutes apart.

I followed some advice from another forum that said to uninstall your USB drivers, reboot, and allow windows to reinstall them. I did, and everything seemed to be going fine for awhile, but after using my mouse for a couple of minutes, it started happening again, and I got the BSOD. I don't know if the mouse is the cause or just coincidence.

This seems to happen whether or not I have USB devices plugged in. Dump file attached.

A:BSOD at random times for past 2 days, BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER

Oh snap: As soon as I posted this, windows popped up these windows (see attached pic). I currently have no devices plugged in to any USB ports.

Hi,

So I've been having this problem consistently and simply cannot understand what's wrong with my system.

Problem Description:
I boot up my PC, everything works fine, after an hour or so, my D (Secondary internal drive) disappears and the system has to be rebooted to find it again. Note, this happens whether or not the drive is currently being used.

Note: The drive always appears in the BIOS.

Drive: Seagate Barricuda 7200.11 750GB
Serial number: 9QK1GAKJ
Disk model: ST3750330AS

Steps I've taken to try and solve the problem:
Initially I thought the drive was simply being unmounted, so i attempted to mount it again using disk management. However the drive won't appear there either, nor will it appear in system information or Seatools. A disk rescan won't reveal it either.
I later, tried to use SeaTools to find out whether or not there was something physically wrong with the drive, but the drive passed all the tests. Peculiarly enough, when the D: drive disappears it also disappears in Seatools.
Thirdly, I checked my power settings to make sure i hadn't had some timer for the hard drive to shut off.
Fourthly, I checked the bios settings to make sure there wasn't some sort of power policy conflict there as-well.
Lastly, I scanned the disk for errors with the windows (with both options to recover bad sectors and fix errors checked) and rebooted. (The problem still occurs)

I will be trying to turn off the bios's plug and play settings next, and see if it will work better ... Read more

I am repeatedly getting the BSOD: BAD_POOL_HEADER. I have installed BlueScreenView and the issue seems to be with tcpip.sys and ntoskrnl.exe.

I have already installed the drivers for my Wireless Network Adapter and that hasn't seemed to change anything. What else could I attempt?

I think there may be some driver conflict as I've had various encounters with BSODs in the past but they then seemed to go away. I'll include 052514-19171-01.dmp which is the tcpip.sys issue and also the others.

The one which includes the dxgkrnl.sys will be the BSOD I encountered during gaming. The Multi-User Win32 Driver could have been the BSOD I was encountering each time I shut my computer down. I thought I should include these as it could be due to some sort of clash - if not then it can't help to include them.

Many thanks in advance!

A:BAD_POOL_HEADER - Three times in one hour and other BSODs

No BSOD for about 6 hours now - seems okay. I deleted many applications that could have interfered such as BitTorrent and just common applications that are known to go wrong such as VirtualCD.

This is cable service, right?

First--slightly off topic--the only phone in a household should not be via cable company unless the phone is only a luxury. I know that my cable company even advised my neighbor to not switch to them from a landline unless he had a cell phone.

Sounds like a problem somewhere between the place where her service branches off from the main coax cable and the modem. Maybe a loose connection; maybe a defective component; maybe a frayed cable that sometimes contacts something it shouldn't.

And those technicians didn't start working backward to find the source of the fault???

If the service is similar to mine outside the residence her cable connects to the company's cable and that junction should be grounded. Carefully check that connection for tightness and for absence of corrosion or rust. Clean it if necessary and protect it if that seems to be needed. Unless that connection is the source of the problem I think that it is up to the technicians to trace the problem back to the source.

Help!!!!

PC was working great, had no problems untill one day i decided to start using the sleep option in windows 7. I usually have my PC on most of the day and its set to turn off the monitors after 20 minutes, i decided to set the sleep option for an hour. Since i set this my PC will enter a blue screen crash almost exacly one hour after i boot it up.

Since i saw the first crash i reset the sleep options back to how ive always had them set but the crash continues to occur. It is one hour and it doesnt matter if i am using the PC or it is sitting idle. It will even crash if i restart the PC, for example, i restart after 45 minutes of runtime then 15 minutes later it will crash. I can avoid the crash with a full shutdown and startup as long as i do that before the dreadfull one hour mark.

I cannot be 100% sure its related to the sleep function, but its the only thing i changed on the day it first crashed.

Has anyone had a problem like this with windows 7 before? the PC has never had any problems untill this one and ive had it over a year.

Hello all,
 
I've been having some issues with Windows 7 lately and have scoured as many relevant forum threads Google can muster up -- but to no avail. The problem seems somewhat common among users, but each potential solution seems to go off in a completely different direction than the next so here I am making my own customized post and seeking your expert advice.
 
The problem is this: randomly, when running any application (even just Event Viewer or the file browser, but also when using Chrome, Skype, Adobe products, etc.), my computer will freeze for anywhere between 30 seconds to 1.5 minutes. I usually notice my system is going to lock up when internet tabs stop loading -- I see the loading wheel in the Chrome tabs and I know the program is about to hang. Shortly after one application begins to freeze, most of the other applications I click on/mess with freeze too. Interestingly, for programs that are recording or outputting sound (Skype calls, YouTube videos, iTunes) will continue to play/record sound so long as I don't touch them. Once a minute or two has gone by, the entire system frees up again and all the applications continue as normal -- all at the same time.

I adjusted the time on the server and thats ok. At each workstation the windows date and time are set for the right time and I have the adjust for daylight savings time checked. When I open outlook and go into calendar options it states that the current time is an hour past what it should be. If I uncheck the daylight savings time option it automatically does it in windows so i'm back to square one. The time zones are all the same on the pcs and the server so thats not the issue. I know it has something to do with the dayligh savings but I can't figure out how to control the options in outlook and windows independently of each other. I have tried every combination I can think of and still no luck. PLEASE HELP.

Three days ago my water cooling failed (got up to 77C while gaming is when I noticed the problem as my CPU should not go over 62C). I decided to install an aftermarket heatsink instead of a new water cooling system ,and add a few more fans just to make sure my whole motherboard was getting plenty of air flow. I installed a Cool Mater Hyper Plus 212 heatsink. I followed the instructions, and looked at a few installation videos on my phone just to be sure. I'm pretty positive everything was done correctly including the thermal paste as my system has not gone over 45C while gaming even playing games on Ultra settings.

I got one BSOD late last night, after about 6 hours of it being on but no other problems after that. Today however I have been having BSOD issues the entire time at random times from just 5 minutes up to 2 and a half hours between BSODs. They have ranged from: NTSF_FILE_SYSTEM, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

I have researched the errors on google all day and tried fixes for each one such as running memory diagnostic tool, deleting the old page info from memory and creating a new one, deleted all of my video drivers and reinstalled them, and I've even opened my case to make sure all my memory and cards are plugged in all the way.

These are the errors that BlueScreenView gave me:

Hi all,

New to the forum, so please feel free to correct any noob mistakes/tell me if I haven't explained myself correctly/relocate me to the correct section of the forum.

My Laptop has an ongoing problem (about a month now) persistent through several windows updates. The taskbar will sometimes, with no clear trigger or cause, start to rapidly flash between all my open windows, eventually when I click anywhere on the taskbar I am prompted with a not responding windows and the only option is to end the "microsoft windows" process. All the taskbar icons then disappear and seem to reload over approx 10 seconds, once this is complete, all the same windows are open, its as if nothing has happened?

Needless to say this is seriously irritating, and gets me raging so my productivity hits rock bottom,
Any thoughts on how to solve this matter would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,
Sam

A:Taskbar Crashes approx 4-5 times an hour - no clear cause.

Hi, welcome to tenforums.

I'm guessing that what you are seeing is explorer restarting. However, your description of 'flashing' is not something I'm familiar with personally. When you say "microsoft windows" process - do you mean explorer.exe?

First try the Event Viewer and see if you can find any helpful reports there.
Noting the time of a particular event when it occurs can help a lot.
(A simple program that can give a quick view of crashes is Appcrash by Nirsoft - free).
Please post what you find if anything.

Erratic problems can be intrinsically hard to track down in that when trying a process of elimination, you just have to wait to see if the symptom occurs.

If this is due to a program you've installed, you can check this by doing a clean boot, and then waiting 'long enough' to see if your problem recurs.

HI,

I've recently encountered a problem in which my 'linksys 3' connection keeps disconnecting numerous times per hour. For example, when I log on my laptop, it says I'm connected with an 'Excellent' signal, then 4-5 minutes later, it becomes disconnected, by which a yellow exclamation sign will appear on the connection logo (I use windows vista home premium), but sometimes it stays connected for at least 1 hour before disconnecting again. Every time that happens, I have to switch the wireless switch on and off for it to connect again. Also, sometimes it disconnects again after mere seconds of reconnecting. There is also my sister's laptop which is connected to the router by a LAN cable, I'm not sure if that would affect it, but this is the first time it has happened, and now it's becoming really annoying and frustrating.

Hardware:

Toshiba Satellite
Cable Modem
Linksys router (silver model)
 

A:Wireless Connection Disconnecting numerous times per hour!

Ive had some porblems maintaining my wireless signal. For mine though I think it was a combination of vista and uTorrent or the rubbish router that im forced to use.

Mine doesnt happen that often though, not sure what could be causing it.

Hi everyone,

Back when I had 7 I had random BSOD/crashes but it was not very frequent. I researched it and couldn't find the issue. I did a clean install and it went away. But since I've upgraded to 8 I've been having a lot of crashes, and then I had three in a day yesterday, so I'm a little worried now. I also went into Speccy and saw my CPU was running at 60 degrees Celsius, so I'm thinking that's probably it, which I don't like, but I don't know how to read dump files and I figured they should be looked at in case it's something else. Do you think you could give me a hand? I appreciate it.

A:Annoying Restarts, Happened Three Times Yesterday

Check the cooling solution for your CPU first. You've gotta fix the hardware before we can fix the software.

Do you still need help with this? If so, please post back and I'll see what assistance I can provide.

Please also do this:
- open Event Viewer (eventvwr.msc)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

After several weeks of trying to track down the root cause of the above mentioned ATA alert, we have determined WUDO is possibly causing the above mentioned ATA alert to fire.
ATA is finding that hosts are connecting to CIFS of many other systems as well as port 7680.
I have not found any official Microsoft documentation stating WUDO utilizes port 445 but other users like myself mentioned 445 is used for host discovery.  If this is true, shouldn't ATA detect that WUDO and host discovery is in use and not fire several
times an hour?
If not what work is being done to get this fixed in the next or future ATA release.

XP Media Center - SP3
Seems sluggish so I installed (this PC had no active antivirus) and ran MSE.  It detected and removed 2 Trojan Downloaders - ASX/Wimad.DC and ASX/Wimad.AZ.
 
I then ran a full Malwarebytes scan which found a Trojan Bredolab and removed it.
 
It was better, but still seemed less than ideal, so I downloaded ComboFix 13.9.14.1.  After disabling MSE's Real-Time scanning I ran it, and after going through the Recovery Console setup and the restore points creation it got to the screen where it informs me that scan times for badly infected machines may easily double.
 
Nine hours later it was still on that screen.  I redownloaded a fresh copy of CF (I experienced problems downloading it yesterday on all 3 PCs we have here, so I thought the application might be corrupted in some way), and rebooted into safe mode.  It still stopped before it hit Stage 1. 
 
I then ran a current install of TDSSKiller.  It found no malicious objects at all.  I then renamed ComboFix and tried running it again in safe mode.  No change - stopped before Stage 1.
 
Included are the 2 logs.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
 
The other thing I noticed is that about a half hour after I last attempted to run ComboFix in safe mode. I opened taskmge, and saw that a CF process called grep.3xe continued to use increasing amounts of RAM.  I finally killed the process after it hit just under 400 Mb, s... Read more
