BSOD shortly after starting video games (Driver? CPU?)

Q: BSOD shortly after starting video games (Driver? CPU?)

This all started a month or two ago when I was suddenly having hard locks during the first 2-10 minutes of playing Overwatch. Turns out it wasn't just Overwatch as it also happened a lot in Watch Dogs too. There was no consistency between lock ups. I could be playing for an hour earlier in the day, leave my computer on for awhile, start it back up later and it crashes then. After a restart, it would sometimes crash a second time.

I thought it was a software issue so I reinstalled. This seemed to fix that issue, but I did get another hard lock after about an hour of Watch Dogs. After the reset, I noticed my Audio Service stopped shortly after getting into windows. Thinking it was linked, I downgraded to an older more reliable version of my Logitech G930 drivers. That seemed to fix the audio issue.

The next day is when I ended up getting this BSOD. I think it's all linked to my CPU since it's old as dirt and up until about 6 months ago, I had a motherboard that would kill video cards by either giving too much voltage or too little. Wouldn't doubt that it might have done damage to the CPU.

If you can shed some light on what my problem is, thanks in advanced.

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.)

Hi. . .

Please attach the SysnativeFileCollectionApp.zip file to your post.

I am unable to download it from Mediafire.

We allow ZIP files of 5 mb or less to be attached. If yours is >5 mb, take some files out and create a second zip file so that both are <5 mb in size.

Either that or use OneDrive - https://onedrive.live.com/about/en-us/

Thank you.

A:BSOD While starting games and updating video card driver

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error

If you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps.

If you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider.

This is usually heat related, defective hardware, memory or even processor though it is"possible" that it is driver related (rare).






Quote:
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
Synopsis:

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:

1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.
2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled.
If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.
3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware.
It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.
4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instruct... Read more

Hello, everyone. I just got back to my PC after a my first year of college, and when I first started it up it bluescreened. I didn't manage to catch the error before it rebooted, then changed to a black screen said that there was no hard disk to boot with.
So I turned it off, turned it back on, and it booted just fine. I ran a full system scan with Avast to check for malware, updated some games on Steam, and basically did my best to get my computer up to speed since it had been off for so long (while I did use it during long breaks). While the Avast scan was running I played World of Warcraft for about an hour or two, and bam--another bluescreen. The error message said something along the lines of "Display drivers failed to restart," but again I couldn't catch the rest because it rebooted, coming up with the same black screen as before. So I turned it off.
When I booted it up for a third time Avast opened almost immediately and asked to restart my computer and run a scan of the startup files. So I obliged; it seemed like it scanned my whole system again, which lasted for an hour or two, and it seems like it moved Malwaregen and corrupted files to the chest. When it was done my computer booted normally. I installed some Windows updates and a new Nvidia driver, figuring that something was outdated, and once again started playing World of Warcraft. This time it didn't bluescreen; instead, the screen froze after ten minutes and turned a solid color. My PC rebooted almos... Read more

Hi all,

I get similar BSOD's every couple of days (see dump files in attachment). They always seem to occur very shortly after starting the PC; either quickly after entering the windows environment (without starting any programs) or shortly after opening the browser or similar program. Remarkably, I can play Battlefield 4 for hours without any BSOD. In fact, I never had a BSOD while playing intensive games. Because of this, I highly doubt it is faulty RAM and I also did a run of memtest86 without errors.

Things I have tried so far:
- Updated all drivers with DriverMax
- Switched antivirus program after reading online this might help (from Avast to Microsoft Security Essential)
- Memtest86
- Remove all programs from startup list except antivirus
- Uninstalled all programs I do not use regularly

I have tried to use driver verifier, but it crashes when I try to stress all drivers. It does not give a BSOD however, so I do not get any information out of it. This again implies (to me) it is a driver issue, but I have no clue how to find the faulty driver.

Any help would be appreciated!

A:Receiving BSOD shortly after starting game

Hi,

The attached dump is a 1000007e: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M bugcheck faulting dxgmms1.sys (DirectX). Could be indicative of PSU or GPU failure since you mentioned you cannot handle any game on load now.

For testing purposes, does the system also crash whilst running Furmark?

dtsoftbus01.sys is the Daemon Tools driver. DT is a very large causer of BSOD's in W7, so I'd recommend uninstalling it and replacing it with an alternative such as: PowerISO, Img Burn, Magic ISO, etc.

Furmark:

Quote:





FurMark Video Stress Test - free from here: http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/

FurMark Setup:

- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup

- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"

Click "Go" to start the test (Looks like it's "BURN-IN test" now)

- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems
(whichever comes first).

- Click "Quit" to exit

Got an issue that I need help on,
I have a fairly recent install of windows 7 professional x64 and I am getting BSOD's and driver failures.

I will be playing a video game (any game) and I will get some artifacting for a few seconds then the monitor refreshes and the game continues with slightly messed up graphics. Once the artifacting happens a few more times It will BSOD or I end the process.

usually the error is 0x000000C4 but occasionally other errors. I did re-seat the graphics card and RAM and that held off the BSOD's for about 24 hours.

I don't think it is the card as it is less than six months old and the occurance of the problem is random, and from what I can read from the logs, it is nvidia and direct X related.

Multiple graphics driver re-installs have not fixed it, nor has a system restore.

I tried to upload the .dmp file but it wouldn't let me so it is in a .zip

System Specs

Samsung Series 3 Laptop Model NP350V5C.
Age: About 4 months.
CPU: Intel Core i5 3210M @ 2.50 GHz
RAM: 8 gigs
GPU: AMD Radeon. HD 7670M

BSOD Description

I was playing Portal 2 tonight for roughly 90 minutes, when on a loading screen, the game froze. Next there was some short, vertical, multicoloured lines that were overlaid on the loading screen, that kinda looked like a small barcode repeated over and over in a line. The system then crashed to the BSOD.

The BSOD itself said that "attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed". I did take a picture of it, if anyone wants me to upload that.

The game is a fresh install done just last night. I have had this problem before with Portal 2 (hence the reinstall), and I also have had it with Dear Esther and Fallout: New Vegas. At first I thought that my computer was trying to run the games on the integrated HD 4000 on the CPU, so I set my laptop to high performance and plugged it into the wall so it would (hopefully) only run on the AMD GPU. Dear Esther and Fallout both appear to be fine (previously they crashed on start up but I was able to play about 30 minutes of each last night), but Portal 2 crashed again tonight.

To my knowledge, my graphics card drivers are up to date, as the version number on my computer matches that on the Samsung website.

It doesn't happen often but sometimes it freezes for a second while loading a certain game which works fine on another day and gives BSOD. Sometimes it happens after I've loaded the game and am in the moment of playing. My hardware is more than enough for the games I run and I even run them on low-mid even though I can manage high settings. The games I usually run are CS:GO, League of Legends and Modern Warfare 3 [rarely play; received 1 BSOD while loading it]

I have a Toshiba M45 laptop running Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 3. The PC powers up to the windows desktop and if I do nothing within about 1 minute, a black box about the size of an icon appears on the screen and it is frozen. The power down button turns the PC off. After waiting a few seconds the process repeats.

If as soon as the windows desktop appears, I start a dos application (Hoyle Puzzles and Games) the computer does not freeze. In fact, I am using it now to post this. The task manager shows the game using all spare CPU time - I don't think the system idle task ever runs.

I have used MSCONFIG to disable almost everything. I have done a system restore a couple of times and updated the BIOS about a year ago...that is how long I have been living with this. Just thought it would be nice to get it straightened out.

I got pissed of and i installed the old drivers (from my CD).Did the procedure (uniinstall old drivers , restart, install new) i installed everything... but the problem was still there... even WORST! I wasnt able to start a game and the different in the Blue Screen was that there was atkosdmini.dll . I dont have any problems with the videos or other things. Only with the games. And how can i run memtest? I installed it and it was some BIN file..I dont think its the memory because i was able to start a game before getting the old drivers back.

So long story short, i bought COD:BO2 (no hating) for the holydays, installed with steam without a flaw and when came the time to double-click the game's icon to start playing, my computer BSOD'ed and restarted. I did my own research using bluescreenviewer and found out it was linked to ntoskrnl.exe (full crash report in documents below) driver. I then updated all my drivers but it didn't fix the problem. I tried writing to acer but their customer service was awful and sent me to the game producer.
Meanwhile, my friends started playing a game called Project Blackout and when I downloaded and installed the game the same problem occurred therefore I think i can safely assume my computer is at fault. My computer is relatively and can handle Diablo 3 max graphics (full info in attached documents below). I've read at some places updating my bios will fix the problem but I've also heard it's very risky and I don't have the skills to do such a thing.

The BSODs started when I was playing graphically intensive games (downloaded through Steam, such as Everquest2 or Borderlands2) every so often (Sidebar--I've crashed recently trying to play Dragon Age Origins, a game that I've played previously with no trouble at all on this computer around 2 months back), but now they've gotten to the point where sometimes the computer trying to use Firefox or even just on the log-in screen before I even try entering my password. I've tried to look at the minidump reports and see what's wrong with them via WhoCrashed, but unfortunately it seems that they aren't always created. Especially since I know I've crashed many more times than the minidumps seem to appear.

Also, many times that the computer restarts (either automatically after a crash, a hard restart, or turning on after I shut down the computer) the Bios screen appears automatically. Quite a few times after I select "Save changes and exit" it'll come up with the Bios screen again. Additionally, the Asus loading screen may come up and stay loading for a couple minutes when loading, something which only took a few seconds in the past. There was also one time yesterday after a crash where the sound wouldn't work due to some sort of error.

Your system meets the minimum requirements.......so it's not your hardware....I think it's not. Try uninstalling the game and reinstalling it. Then try the game at the lowest resolution.

I have recently been getting BSOD and black screens, forcing restarts often on startup of games though they also occur randomly throughout if not on startup. The GPU was no stock in my system, I added it around 2 months after I bought the desktop. There has been a black screen issue since I first installed the GPU although it rarely forced a restart until the last week or so, before this time it also never caused BSOD. The only manual change I have made to my software recently has been an update to the latest beta drivers for my card two days ago, though the problem existed before that as mentioned above. With the aid of a friend I did a clean install of drivers this evening with the intention of ruling out corrupt drivers I believe. All temperatures have been well within the ranges that I'm led to believe are normal. The temperatures as I most often see them are (according to SpeedFan): Temp1 26C, Temp2 31C, CPU 2C, HD 27C, GPU 30C.

I have also collected a WhoCrashed report and have attached it to this post, I hope it is useful. Thank you in advance for any assistance, as you can understand trying to fix this myself with little knowledge has been a little frustrating.

Again, thanks in advance.

I purchased my computer two months ago and have been having BSOD problems at times. The BSOD only occurs sometimes and only when starting games, such as Battlefield BC2 and Call of Duty MW2. With Battlefield, the game will start and go to the main screen, but when I click on "Log In", BSOD. With MW2, it will begin to start the game then, BSOD. It doesn't do this all the time, just sometimes. I have Norton installed because it is what comes with my ISP. I did uninstall it, but continued to get the BSOD, although it did seem not as often.

Greetings Win7 Forums,

I want to thank you in advance for the support. I'm about ready to melt my PC and sell it for scrap.

I've been running Windows 7 Pro x64 Final since early October (thanks MSDN). This BSOD has been very consistent. System_service_exception .... 0x3b

It only appears when starting certain (not all) games. They include Halo PC, Dead Space, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, to name a few. Other games, such as Spore, Gears of War, and The Sims 3 run flawlessly.

So I figured since I had a pre-release version I would wait it out to see if a possible driver update would amend this problem. Didn't happen.
I bought a new GFX card because my integrated was crap. Still got the error, so I ruled out it was a problem with the GFX. This is a clean install of Win7 on a brand new hard drive, so rule out any possibilities there. I'm not overclocking as the hardware I'm running now is a x100 upgrade from my previous, so rule that one out too.

I'm left thinking it's the RAM. I won't be sure until after I run memtestx64 overnight and troubleshoot each stick. Just thought maybe some of you seasoned troubleshooters could take a look at my dump file and maybe decipher a problem.

I think it should be noted these games run fine on my XP boot with the same hardware. Only difference is XP is installed on a separate HD. However it is x86 so only 3.5 of the 8GB of RAM are being used, respectively. That is simply not enough for these high-end games.

Update this driver to 2009 or uninstall from the system to test. Uninstalling the motherboard app that installed it is best:

Hi there,

I've got Windows XP installed on my laptop. It starts up fine and will initially run ok, although the cursor is a bit jerky. However, about a minute or two after my desktop has appeared the mousepad will start to become intermittent, and be pretty much unresponsive after a few minutes. The keyboard is also unresponsive with only a very occasional response to the Numlk key. However, if I start in safe mode it all runs fine. I have Kaspersky, spybot, and malwarebytes installed, and have found nothing running them in safe mode. Does anyone have any suggestions please?

A:BSOD 0x0000003B when starting certain games on Win7x64

*SOLVED*

Good evening.

After updating the outdated drivers, I was still getting BSOD 0x3B. I realized it wasn't a bad driver and decided the best route was to test the hardware.

I replaced the RAM sticks and video with known working pieces and the BSOD still appeared. After some thought, I decided to disable all startup items and non-microsoft services. Sure enough, BSOD gone. Turns out it was my firewall, Outpost Firewall Pro 2009, causing the System Service Exception. I've been using their firewall on 32bit for years now without a problem, but apparently their x64 for Win 7 still has some bugs.

I'm just glad this issue is resolved and I can play my games again with the full support of my x64 and Direct X 11.

Best Regards,

PLEASE HELP , after extensive searching I am led to this site to try and sort out my problem

Until recently I have had no problems playing games that I have launched from steam. Only recently have I started to notice that when I launch specific games in my games library the BSOD with the system_service_exception error code 0x0000003b appears, this can be intermittent.

I have installed blue screen view and it seems to indicate that the driver atikmdag.sys and ntoskrnl.exe is causing the issue linked to the ati kernel mode driver and NT kernel and system which are their file names respectively, I have tried reinstalling the new catalyst drivers but this doesnt seem to make any difference. this is as far as I have gone

the minidump is uploded
the age of my system now is approximately 2 and half years - I have also considered updating my motherboard e.g flash bios and update chipset drivers but I do not know if this will make any difference.

Any thoughts or opinions will be greatly appreciated . Thank you

The problem started yesterday while I tried to run Counter-Strike Global Offensive by launching it with the ESEA client and got a BSOD.
At first I thought it was a CS:GO related problem as the game is relatively new and there were GPU problems in the past when the game was beta (I have a NVIDIA GTX560M on a Qosmio x775).
Following forums I figured I may have to flash BIOS and update graphics card drivers. However, despite these updates I kept BSOD'ing every time while trying to launch the game.
Taking my research further I realized the computer would crash while starting ANY game. Even opening the NVIDIA client to change 3d settings led to a BSOD. After a lot of frustration and futile updates, I thought perhaps it was an overheating issue and left the laptop off for the night with all USB ports unplugged.

At first, today seemed good since I was able to go through 3d settings in the NVIDIA control panel with no crash. But, while returning to the original game that caused problems (CS:GO), I got a bluescreen again.

I really need to know what is going on as I haven't the faintest clue. I've attached a diagnostic error report of one of the crashes (there have been many) and I am willing to provide any extra information just as long as I get some responses!

A:[SOLVED] BSOD 0x0000003B when starting certain games on Win7x64

Interestingly, the debugger cannot identify the symbols for your version of win32k.sys.
Can you think of any reason for this?

If not, then I'd suggest running SFC.EXE /SCANNOW from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt. Please let us know the results of this when it's done.

Please update the Asus programs on your system to the latest Win7 version. The ASIO.sys file on your system dates from 2007.

Other than that there's little evidence of the culprit involved here. I hope that the SFC.EXE thing will fix it enough that we'll be able to start tracking the culprit with the next memory dump file. It's important for us (in this sort of situation) to have all of the minidump files in the C:\Windows\Minidump directory. That will help us to see if there's a pattern to the crashes - and the pattern may lead to the culprit.

when ever i install a game onto my coputer and try and play it, they all say that the spooge drive isn't installed properly and to make sure that i've installed DirectX properly. some of the game will get to the black screen before they start and it comes up with that "Don't Send or Send error Report" thing. i have recently reinstalled window onto it and some of the drivers like the audio one weren't installed. do you think that could be the same thing with the video driver. if so could you tell me where i can get a new one or find the old one on the computer somewhere?
cheers, hope you can help

My first time doing all this (running Verifier, uploading dump data, etc.)

Any questions please just ask.

A:BSOD when starting up using Driver Verifier

Driver verifier is supposed to cause BSODs. Is there any reason that you enabled it? If your previous BSODs lead you to do it, disable DV.

Uninstall BitDefender. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Let us know for any further BSOD, obviously without DV. If it is needed, you will be suggested for it at teh proper time.

I have attached my Seven Forums Zip file for any help. I believe that the nVidia 310m card on this computer has gone bad but wanting to verify before giving up.

Thanks!

A:BSOD when starting the computer/video card?

Welcome
All your reports point toward Nvidia. Usually its just a driver. Update the driver by going to the Nvidia website.

I can't play any game now without a crash happening frequently and early into a session. I had 100+ hours into Ark with no crashes of this type and now they just wont stop happening.
The error message i get is usually "Application has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware." or "the graphics driver has crashed and reset".
I am not sure about how to fix this. My laptop is a toshiba Satellite P75-A7200. I have become aware that i cannot improve the graphics card, but i was actually fine running Ark, Ds2, Wow, Dota 2 and others with many hours before this started to occur. 1000 hours minimum
The laptop comes with 8gb of ram as default, but i went ahead and put in two sticks of 4gb ram. These two errors occur with the sticks in or without. I would say that my laptop experiences more hiccups or pauses but continues to run with the extra sticks in, but idk how'd id provide that as usable info.

A:At 100+ hours with multiple games and now i get video driver crashes

Have you updated the graphics card driver? if no then update, if yes try rolling back to the old driver and see if that works.

Hello.
The BSOD started all of a sudden yesterday when I was starting a video file. Since then, the computer has been slower, sound does not work properly, the browser crashes unexpectedly... Sometimes the BSOD reappears out of nowhere (and it always appears if I try to start a video file again) and teh computer reboots.
I read the instructions and I'm posting the file with the information.
Can someone help me, please?

I was playing Skyrim and then I hit Esc to go do something and then when I came back to my PC and sat down to play again it BSOD. Its BSOD before but I fixed it by unistalling Windows 7 and reinstalling it. Its been almost a year with out a BSOD. Now its BSODing randomly and sometimes one after another within 2-20min. I replaced my RAM in the past and that helped and also my Graphics card in the past. Im thinking it might be my graphics card. I noticed they stopped making it recently so maybe they stopped with updates too. I don't know. Just want to get my PC running smooth again.

Your zip file doesn't contain all the information we request on the article here. Please make sure to have as many items as you can in the zip file. The most crucial items are the minidump files.

FS9 (Flight Simulation 2004) used to run OK, no problems.
After installing REX2004 patches and Overdrive, a few seconds after starting FS9 a BSOD occurs. So far no other programs have caused a BSOD.
I have tried fully uninstalling FS9 and reinstalling it and the BSOD returns after the reinstall. At present FS9 is not installed. Have now created the file folder you requested to support this thread, see attached.
Does anyone know how to fix this so that I can again run FS9 please?

Software
There seems to be a problem with your Windows installation. Please follow the Windows Genuine and Activation Issue Posting Instructions. Post the results in your next post; do not start a new thread.
Drivers
The following drivers need to be updated:


Code:
teamviewervpn.sys Thu Dec 13 20:22:09 2007 (4760F9C1)
These drivers can be found by searching them in Google and then finding the associated software or driver. Finally, find the latest version of this driver or software and download and install it. Some of the drivers may also be found here (if the driver says 'Windows Update' simply make sure all Windows Updates are installed).

You should also update any other drivers you can think of including graphics, audio, chipset, SSD etc.

Update your NVIDIA video card drivers from the below link. Rather than doing a typical install, select custom and perform a clean install.

I first built this desktop last May and immediately played Crysis on it to test the graphics and whatnot. I occasionally noticed some audio stuttering and the game would freeze up for a split second, then it would be fine. I knew the hardware could handle it (my system spec but with an AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition and an M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 motherboard), so it must be a software problem.

It turns out that Windows Update installed some bogus driver for my onboard Realtek Ethernet controller. So, I rolled the driver back, installed the version on the motherboard CD, and that was that. No more stutter.

Well, now I have a new processor, motherboard, and Windows installation and I've found myself in the same boat, except I can't fix the problem the same way. This is especially annoying since I don't even use my ethernet at all (not by choice, just no wiring). I have an ASUS PCI wireless card (which I was using on my previous computer when I fixed the problem) and I have updated the driver for that too (after trying the one on the disk). I have also updated the HD audio driver and the ethernet driver after reinstalling from the motherboard disk didn't help. I got the drivers from Biostar's website, not through windows update.

I've read that there may be interrupt line conflicts between the graphics card and the ethernet controller (IRQ conflicts), but if those are shared, they are supposed to be (at least as far as my experience with embedded systems programming... Read more

A:Audio/Video stutter during games, videos. Suspect ethernet driver

Seeing as you're not using it, have you tried disabling the onboard ethernet controller in the bios and see if the problem goes away?

Hey guys,
So I've been having this problem for quite some time now, it started a while back with a game called 'Prototype' and since then every BIG game I play gives me BSOD with the driver irql message.
Now I would really like to get this solved but I am just a complete idiot when it comes to fixing things on computers, I don't even know how to set up my router settings.

Anyway I've read some threads, tried some things but nothing seems to work :9 but I'm always happy to try it all again, as long as it will work.

I read that expert people can look into something called "Minidump" files
I followed some steps and I added the Minidump things into the rar file, so I hope that may help?

Basic Info;
running Windows 7 64 bit
Processor: AMD Phentom 9500 Quad Core
Ram: 3GB
Video: Nvidea Geforce 8600 GT

I have no Idea of things that are important but please tell me I will try anything for a solution

A:Bsod - 5 minutes after starting Skyrim driver-irql-not-less-or-equal

almost all the dump files mention athrxusb.sys.
Are you using a wireless usb stick ?
If so download the latest drivers for it.
That could solve atleast some of the bsods.

These were Related to athrxusb.sys Extensible Wireless LAN device driver from Atheros Communications, Inc. Yours is almost 3 years old. I would re-install with the newest version available.

ALSO and important

Please remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp, called sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.
