Q: BSOD like many others. New iBuyPower....

Having issues with BSOD and i can't find out why or how it happens. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
thank you. I've never used a forum before, and have no idea what else to do in my position. I uploaded the files that you will need to solve this if you can, thanks again. Also my temps read around 40-60 because i play mmos, and my rear fan runs hard core alot even with case open, and idk if its just the fact that its a gaming pc or if it is telling me of a soon to come heat problem.

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,

Uninstall Avast then use the removal tool. Set Windows Firewall and Windows Defender to Automatic and start them too, using services.msc.

Update Realtek HD Audio codec driver from their website:

RTKVHD64 RTKVHD64.sys Fri Mar 29 09:40:06 2013 (515599B6)

Update motherboard bios to newest version.

Likely that the memory is not configured well, mismatched, or defective.

Please attach a screenshot of CPU-Z first tab, one of memory tab and one each for each stick of RAM of SPD tab - along with newest crash dumps - if necessary after completing the above. (Or perhaps Avast removal is the trick instead.)

Does anyone out there know if the iBuypower computers or other computer out there on like Tigerdirect or the ZT brands from Costo are any good? I've never heard of them but keep seeing them popping up everywhere....

I've only ever had a Dell, HP or Gateway machine.
 

A:iBuypower and other non-namebrand computers

They're most often made from quite much better quality parts than Dell, etc as they don't get exclusively extra cheap motherboards and other parts like the big brand companies. They do sometimes use lower quality power supplies though, quite a feat considering what the factory built boxes have. I wouldn't recommend getting any of them without modifying it yourself and selecting a quality power supply for it, or replacing it yourself to save a few dozen dollars, as well as getting a longer warranty for the PSU.

Hey all, new to the forums and in pretty serious need of some help. I bought an IBUYPOWER prebuilt gaming rig last... April I think, and its been working great for me. Recently however ( the last month or so), the sound keeps going out. It went out for about a week before randomly coming back (nothing I did), and now its been gone for about 2-3 weeks. The sound icon down by the clock shows a red x and says that no speakers are plugged in. I've tried a bunch of things to try and get my audio back on, but no luck. I'm not sure what I would need to provide here for anybody to help me, or what I SHOULDNT post for security reasons, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Some important notes
*I have Windows 7
*I have two jacks for my speakers, one in the back where you would typically expect to find one, but also an additional one in the front panel. Neither one apparently works, leading me to believe its a driver issue.
*Gosh idk what else to put down! any help would be greatly appreciated, I used to think I was capable with computers but this seems to be beyond me

Hi everyone...I'm in the process of getting a new computer and I'm currently looking at this online place called www.ibuypower.com ... basically that site lets you choose the components and they'll put it together for you. I searched the parts on NewEgg and the price actually came out higher hahah

Anyway, what's troubling me is that a look at their ratings at ResellerRatings.com is "great" http://www.resellerratings.com/seller2001-p3-s1-d1.html

So my question is has anyone here had experiences with that company along with suggestions, etc. Thanks in advance.

I have just recently noticed how slow the install is because I got a new copy of Windows 7 for my 13inch MacBook Pro(2.66 Core2, 4GB RAM) and it seems to run games faster and be more stable. Could it just be a early version of 7 that is causing the problem? or is it hardware?

Hey!
What seems to be wrong us that the UEFI can't seem to detect the harddrives when determining boot order? That's my best guess. I really have no idea. If I load Bootable media, such as my installation drive, it detects it just fine and all my components are fine and I'm able to format and install as I please.
However, I'm unable to access the UEFI configuration, as the pc just stops.
Twice in the past few days it's been able to work itself out and boot as normal, so I know it's not a harddrive issue, but it's extremely rare.
I formatted and installed a fresh windows on a secondary drive to see if that would help to both avail.

I've got this system running since november 2010 and i have had not a single problem. About a month ago, i had issues trying to boot windows: i had to turn power on/off loads of time until i was able to get to desktop. Since that day, Blue Screens happened every time i got to desktop, after few seconds or after few minutes... Freezes and BSoD kept coming, so i ran some tests: memtest86, scandisk, a samsung hdd test... They showed no errors but memtest.
Memtest86 found out loads of errors coming from both RAMs and so i bought new ones: Kingstone HyperX KHX1600C8D3K2. I had same problems: freeze and errors just after boot, not later (played some heavy game for more than 5 hours or so).

I tested old rams on another computer, and they worked just fine.

Oh, and i format/install Windows7 about three times.

I tried to remove GPU and tried to use MOBO GPU, but it still freezed.

Right now i have no freeze/BSoD on boot, but only while playing (after few secs).

P.S. : I had 2 BSoD using the BsoD collecting application.

P.P.S. : Some things are written in italian because i'm running an italian OS.

A:BSOD Plannetside 2 (steam) black screen> reboot> BSOD crash report

A stop 0x116 is a display/graphics related issue. Many a factors or components may cause such a BSOD.

First of all, it is the display driver. From your BSOD dumps, I have noticed that it crashed the same irrespective of the driver version over time. So overlooking this part right now. Will concentrate it on later again, if needed.

Next thing is overclocking, which sometimes lead display to crash. And, you are slightly overclocked.

Code:
CPUID: "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz"
MaxSpeed: 3400
CurrentSpeed: 3411
As the system is crashing, you should stop overclocking. Set all the hardware elements like CPU, GPU and RAM to default; and reset the BIOS to default too.
How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS)

Heat is another factor. Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy.

Also, dust accumulation causes heat, and dust accumulation depends on the age of the system. How old the system is? If possible, dismantle it and clean the inside carefully .... specially the air vents and fan grills, so that it can blow the hot air out easily.
Dont forget to apply thermal paste to the CPU when re-seating the system.

Insufficient power supply is also a great cause of display crash. Check if the CPU is supplying adequate power there or not.

Counterfeit installations such as yours contains heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable.

Hello,

You guys have been great before, and I hope that someone can help me tackle this.

My friend's computer started going weird after playing a game that uses Shockwave. (That's the last thing they remember...) When loading into Windows (regular mode), after selecting (any) user all you see on the screen is black with blue spots all over.

They're using an Asus P5DV2-VM SE motherboard
Intel E2140 (1.6GHz) CPU,
1GB DDR2
with a 450w PSU.

Originally I thought it was video-driver related as they're using the onboard graphics card. It's a Via P4M890-based motherboard although it has a PCIe expansion.

Loading in safe mode usually works, and loading into VGA mode got me into Windows however I received a 0x8E pretty quickly. At some point I also received a 0xA3. I tried uninstalling the video driver (Via Chrome9). That allowed me back into regular mode but soon after I got a BSOD. I tried running System Restore from safemode and I got 0xA3 (ACPI_DRIVER_INTERNAL) but I can't find info on fixing this one.

Thanks in advance,
Ram

A:Bsod 0xa3 And 0x8e - Unusual/unclear Picture And Random Bsod

0x8e errors are usually caused by driver issues. Here is what Microsoft says regarding 0xa3 errors:An inconsistency in the ACPI driver is so severe that continuing to run would cause serious problems. One possible source of this problem is a BIOS error.Drivers and Windows interacts with the BIOS. Have you tried a BIOS update? Usually this is not recommended as it can cause serious issues if the update is not performed correctly, but is recommended when the BIOS is suspected to be the cause of an issue such as this.EDIT: all you see on the screen is black with blue spots all over.I just remembered having an issue like this, and it was corrected by simply reseating the video card. Just thought I would mention this.

Hi All,
 
I'm an experience computer user working in technical support and system administration in linux environment. 
 
This issue has me stumped.
 
My pc is refusing to boot, it will throw a BSOD moments after hitting the loading windows screen.
 
Start up recovery prompts to system restore, once this is complete it restarts with the same effect.
 
 
Repairing from the windows system disk has the same effect.
 
When booting into safe mode, the system will BSOD when loading aswRvrt.sys.
 
All BSODs happen too fast to read anything, not dumping physical memory.
 
This all started happening after a seemingly random BSOD which happened last night.
 
The only change to the system that I effected was installing a newsgroup reader this was done several hours before the first BSOD.
 
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I have a relatively new computer that I've built and I've been getting BSOD's for a while.

At first I thought it was because the pagefile was disabled, but that was just why they weren't getting logged to MiniDump. Then I got it enabled again and now I'm getting a lot of BSODs. It's been 0x3b ntoskrnl exe lately, but when I enabled driver verifier I was getting a different BSOD on each boot.

One of them specifically mentioned a .sys that I can't exactly remember. it was XXhalp.sys or something, and when I Googled it - everyone was talking about deleting monitor profiles from the registry and that somehow old monitor profiles were causing the BSODs, so I donno about that.

I would appreciate any help you can offer. I'll be actively monitoring this (and I'm currently in safe mode with driver verifier still enabled). So just let me know what you need.

Thanks,

After BSOD problems (0x00000050), I took my two month old Dell desktop back to Geek Squad under warranty. Said problem wasn't hardware, but software, and would charge to fix. I took it home and reinstalled Win 7. BSOD (0x0000007b) with a Dell installation CD, but otherwise fine except it keeps restarting itself at various intervals. When I tried installing drivers, it wouldn't recognize Ethernet card. Not sure what's going on. Wife thinks a no-name anti-virus CD will fix it all, but I'd appreciate your advice.

Hi everyone,

After restarting the computer following a malwarebytes scan, I could not get into window, nor safe mode and system restore by pressing F8 at start up. What I only had after running a little while is BSOD. Btw, I ran diagnostic test a few times. All passed.

After this happened and I did some searching online, I decided to run a windows xp repair by using the original OEM window xp installation CD (sp2) when the system inside the computer is sp3 after I updated it long ago.

I followed the processes suggested by the following webpage.
http://www.windowsreinstall.com/winxphome/sp2sp3installxpcdrepair/indexfullpage.htm

It was all fine until Part 4 in that webpage. A BSOD popped out after the windows symbol in Part 3.
And I noticed some new sentences at the bottom of the BSOD which are like ?physical memory dump?.

Hopefully, solutions for all of this would be recommended by someone. I don?t even really dare to switch the computer back on now!

Sorry if I have posted in the wrong section of the forum. If I have done it, please move this post to the right section. Thank you in advance.

A:BSOD after restarting following a malwarebytes scan and BSOD after running windows xp repair

System manufacturer and model?

Generally...OEM disks do not allow for a "repair install", only a reversion to factory defaults which the system had when purchased.

All documentation (which I've seen) referring to a repair install of XP...assume that the user has a copy of MS Genuine Windows, not disks provided by an OEM.

64 bit, full retail.
Hardware is 1 month old (built myself)
OS was installed when I built it from a USB drive (did not include an optical drive in the build)

corsair tx650 PSU
ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 motherboard
Corsair vengance 1600 ddr3 ram (2x4gb)
Coolermaster hyper 212 cooling unit

It was working fine the first 3 weeks I had the build, then I went on a vacation for a week. I come back, and the thing BSODs on me 6 times in an hour and a half.

First thing I tried was setting clocks back to normal (was at 4.3ghz on the i5, went back down to 3.3ghz) and it was stable for like 45 minutes after I did that, but it then crashed again. Also did a memory diagnostic test and everything was supposedly good.

My max temps with prime95 now are like 37 degrees celsius with RealTemp because I have the coolermaster hyper 212 as opposed to the stock cooler, so it shouldnt be crashing due to over heating.

Also: first crash occured firing up minecraft.

Thanks for any and all help guys.

Using which tool/software? You should run Memtes86+ for at least 7 Passes (Test each RAM stick individually)
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Your BSODs are RAM/Memory related, rest your RAM settings to their default values in your BIOS. Stop any overclocking if any.

Run Prime 95 to test your CPU. Carefully the instructions in this tutorial: CPU - Stress Test with Prime95. Run 3 separate tests, one on each of the settings (Blend, Small FFTs, Large FFTs). Post back with your results.
Note that this test may overheat the CPU, ensure proper cooling.

Hello,

After doing a lot of forum surfing, I have yet to find anything that's worked to get rid of this error. My goal is to get the data off of my drive.. the problem:

I am (not) running XP Pro (not sure what sp.. 3 at one point, but I might have uninstalled it) on a dell poweredge 400sc.

Bios recognizes my hard drive, which is a SATA 400gb (No way to run as a slave with an ATA .. so I've read ..?)

I am getting a BSOD (0x00000050) when booting normally. It flashes for just a quick moment after a few seconds of the XP logo.. then computer restarts.

Computer restarts without showing a BSOD when I try to boot in safe mode.

Computer shows BSOD when plugged into the usb port using a external case. (my other *ATA* hard drive runs windows just fine on this computer) Same thing happens when plugged into a different computer.

Computer shows these errors when I try to use recovery console from my XP CD:

0x000000D0
0x000000E3
0x000000D1
.. I think it's shown the 0x00000050 before.. It's been different almost every time I let the CD load today, but one time it was in OS install mode cause I thought that might help..

I can't seem to get this thing to work. Before this happened my computer was acting really slow; dragging a window around or making selection box on the desktop would make things all skippy and send the cpu to the upper 90s with nothing else running. The BSOD started when I tried to run the SATA as a slave to my ATA.

I was merely resizing a Windows Explorer window on the desktop when the monitor went black for 15-20 seconds, then the mobo splash screen came up, and Windows booted back up. The "Windows shut down unexpectedly" window came up and the details said it was a BSOD. The pertinent log files from the DM Log Collector app are attached.

*edit* I built this system over 3.5 years ago and I've never reloaded or reformatted anything in that time. Maybe it's about time to reformat C: since I have all my data files on a separate drive anyway.

Hi all, really getting a headache trying to fix my mums laptop out but I am struggling miserably.

I have no idea what she has done, obviously claiming to have done nothing but basically I got a text this morning asking me to take a look at the laptop because it wont turn on.

First thing is the Windows bootup screen, improper shutdown asking to boot in safemode/normal etc. I chose normal and just as it was about to boot into Windows a fast BSOD appeared for a split second and then the laptop restarted, to the same screen. This time I chose Last known configuration, same happened. The BSOD's were so fast I cannot get a glance at it.
I tried in safe mode and it seemed fine, but I didnt know what I should try to do. So I did a system restore and this worked ok but again it wouldnt boot up.

After hours of trying, I googled some and downloaded Windows Vista Recovery Disc and I attempted the Automatic System Repair but it told me failed to detect any problems. Tried it again, and same. So then I attempted to boot it back up, but nope. BSOD again.

The laptop did come with a typical recovery disc but I am unable to find that, and the Windows Vista label is stuck underneath the Laptop so I downloaded a copy of Windows Vista to install and I managed to format the harddrive.

Now this is what bugs me, I cannot even install a fresh copy of Windows, I am actually trying again as we speak but even whilst "Copying the files" on the Windows installation, it BSOD's on ... Read more

Hi,

My computer has been unstable for quite some time and after memory tests, changing graphics cards, many driver variations and a couple of fresh OS installs a while ago it is still not stable.

The difficulty is that it doesn't seem to be triggered by anything specific so it makes debugging really difficult... sometimes it crashes twice a day then not for another week or two.

Please help me shed some light on how this could be resolved as I am considering stripping the PC down to its components, selling them and buying a pre-built system instead.

Thanks

Around the 17th of March I was playing Smite, joined a match and about half way through it, I received a freeze then a BSOD. This continued to happen randomly when I would play a smite match, ranging from every 1 to 6 matches, could happen near the beginning or in the middle of the game. So I wouldn't ruin more games for others I attempted to fix the problem myself, looking up that I had to update my GPU drivers (which I do now have) or uninstall them to let my pc auto install the suitable one (This ended up with my PC or Radeon hardware detector not detecting the GPU so I had to system restore). I also tried cleaning out my PC rig with a duster to see if, my bad PC hygiene, had caused heating problems but it had no affect. I have used malware-bytes to detect malware and viruses but all that was quarantined seems to have had no affect.

I tried these solutions that I see everywhere when I search, but obviously they didn't work. So instead of finding a solution I attempted to find more symptoms, I found that within the blue screen it mentions atikmpag.sys, I see that my PC problem reports tell me that I have a lot of Windows shutting down and Video hardware errors (With the BCC codes BCC116 and BCC117 respectivly).

Hello. I am experiencing some random BSODs. It happens no matter what program is running. It could be in a game, surfing the internet, or listening to music. It is very random. Happens about once every two days on average. Some days are worse.
