Preferred Solution: Getting frequent BSOD errors when ever I run google chrome

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.)

Recently my computer has been BSoDing a lot. It has an especially hard time running Google Chrome. The Shockwave flash plugin crashes all the time and pages fail to load. I tried uninstalling Chrome and re-installing it but that did not help. I ran the Windows 7 memory tester but it did not come up with any issues. I am honestly stumped as to what it could be. I have included the DM Log Collector file as the website instructed. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Dear Seven Forums,
I'm looking for help regarding my pc that I built 3 months ago.

I am having random crashes of all types:

- 99% of the games crash to desktop after 10-15 minutes (Overwatch,Eu4,Hoi4, CIV V is OK,Witcher 3)
- can't use chrome / firefox for more than 1-2 minutes because of either 'Oops.. something went wrong' or the applications close without error.
- Randomly appearing crashes of antimalware-service and explorer.exe

and of course many blue screens while 'browsing' ,playing

What I've also noticed that I can go playing EU4,Warthunder 3-4 hours without issues and then suddenly keep BSODing the next 4-5 restarts.
I've filled out the PC specs in my profile.
What I've already tried:
-I've reinstalled Win7 3 times and reinstalled Win10 2 times. All of the fresh installs resulted in blue screens.
- I've also tried adjusting BIOS settings like setting tad higher RAM voltage, CPU voltage, running the PCIE in 8x or 4x Mode, and using XMP settings. The recent 3-4 blue screens happened with all the BIOS settings reverted using 'Restore default settings'.
- I've been using 2x4 2400Mhz Kingston DDR4 Rams the first 2 months, but replaced them with the Corsair ones in hopes of solving the BSODs (I've done a clean install + BIOS reset after replacing the RAM)
-edit: I've also tried disabling hardware acceleration in hopes of solving the chrome crashes

Looking for tips to finally be able to identify the faulty driver/hardware


A:Frequent BSOD (050,f7,fc,3b,1e), frequent service and chrome crashes

Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.
If you have installed any driver with Driver Booster 3, please remove them as it may cause trouble.

An easy way to get remove these drivers is by using a restore point prior the installation.

Please ensure that all overclocking is removed for RAM, CPU & GPU while troubleshooting.

How are the graphics drivers currently installed? Windows Update or?

My laptop has been crashing regularly and very often for about a month. Happens most of the time when I open a new webpage on chrome, or a video plays in browser - and I get this error displayed: Attempted Execute of NoExecute Memory.

I suppose this is a driver problem - this became a menace ever since I tried updating my video and audio drivers from the HP Website (Using a HP Envy DV6 7245us Laptop). I've tried reinstalling the drivers but it didn't solve the problem.

The laptop is new - bought it in September. Worked fine. Ran virus scans - nothing detected (I use BitDefender).

OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit
2.3GHz up to 3.2GHz AMD Quad-Core A10-4600M Accelerated Processor
AMD Radeon HD 7660G Discrete-Class graphics and up to 3060MB total graphics memory

A:Google Chrome or watching videos - Frequent BSODs


There seems to be multiple Antivirus softwares installed in your system. Comodo and Bitdefender . Running multiple AV programs is a very bad idea. It will cause issues including BSOD, crashes and in fact will lower the system security.

Please follow the below steps.

1. Uninstall Comodo completely from the system. It's firewall drivers seems to be directly associated with the crashes.

2. Uninstall AMD quickstream software.

Let us know how the system works after the above steps.

Hi all,

I am experiencing relatively frequent (every couple of days), but apparently random (in the sense I cannot identify a clear/specific action that causes them) BSOD's while using Chrome, Excel etc.

I would be extremely grateful for any assistance anybody can provide.

This is my first post and I have attempted to follow the instructions to provide all the relevant information.

I have run the SF_Diagnostic_Tool.exe and attached the zipped file it created.

However, please let me know if there is something missing...

Thanks in advance.

A:Frequent BSOD - using Chrome, Excel etc

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial in order to rule out the faulty stick.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes. A single error can be found after 20 passes.

Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

Since I finished building a desktop (the specifications of which you can find in my profile) in May this year, I've been experiencing BSODs. The first appeared approximately two weeks after building completed, and from thereon after I have encountered one or two a week with no single action seeming to cause one.

I reinstalled Windows 7 within the last week and the BSODs have become far more frequent. You can find several .dmp files in the attached zip file and they represent BSODs from August 5th to today (August 8th).

Using the BlueScreenView software, it looks like a USB problem. For example, one .dmp file lists the file 'EtronXHCI.sys' as being associated with the problem; another lists AsrAppCharger.sys (ASRock USB charing post-shutdown software/driver) and VBoxUSBMon.sys. Furthermore, a BSOD a few minutes ago seen Windows 7 boot with the attached 'USB3.PNG' window.

The only thing I can do that almost always brings about a BSOD is install an operating system to a VirtualBox machine. This happened at least three times while attempting to install Windows Server 2012 to one.

So far I have unplugged the case USB from the motherboard, uninstalled ASRock XFast USB software, and updated all drivers with DriverPack Solution. Of course, none of this has aided the problems as I continue to experience BSODs - one of which happened during my first attempt to post this message.

I should also add that I have tested memory using memtest86 (no errors) and that my video card was... Read more

Hi Everyone,

I have a weird BSOD problem which I cannot solve for a while.

The main strange thing about this is that I get BSOD only after cold boot.
So it acts like this:

1. start PC.
2. Get to Windows Logo Screen
4. Restart
5. Get to menu where I can try to repair or Start NormallyIf I Choose Repair, it will fail to repair and will try to restoreIf I Choose Start Normally, it will start OK, no BSOD, can work normally, games, browse internet, everything is normal.6. Shutdown PC
7. Next time when I start is all over again i.e. Go to Step 1

I have this problem for a while, so what I tried:
1. Another Windows 7
2. Another HDD
3. Only HDD connected
4. Changed RAM
5. Tried with built in GPU

Result is the same as above everytime.

Please suggest what could be the cause.
Logs and dumps attached.

Thank you

Hi there,

A couple of days ago my computer started freezing and becoming unresponsive, then coming up with application errors titled 'steamwebhelper.exe - Application Error' or 'chrome.exe - Application Error'. After this the screen either goes completely black and I have to turn it off from the power button (Ctrl+Alt+Delete doesn't work), or I get BSOD, with a message saying 'A process or thread crucial to system operations has unexpectedly ended.' After this I go to turn the computer back on and it comes up with a message saying 'Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key'. I assume this is the computer trying to boot from the CDROM Drive, and I can get around it by pressing Backspace/F8 at startup and changing the boot priorities. I've ran a ChkDsk, a memory check and even done a system restore and it still continues, any help would be appreciated.

I've run into quite a jam here. I got a blue screen error a couple days ago while playing League of Legends that I believe was titled IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL, though it could have been something else. Anyway, I rebooted, ran a full system scan using Avast! antivirus (with nothing found), ran a LOLclient fix, and also played some Dark Souls to see if it was an overheating problem. Dark Souls ran fine, so I don't believe it's overheating. I discovered my NVIDIA card driver was out of date, so I went ahead and updated that with no errors. I ran League again, and the problem persisted. At this point I'm afraid I either have some corrupted system files or a very sneaky virus. I've blue screened multiple times following the first incident with errors including "File possibly corrupt. The file header checksum does not match the computed checksum." and even "A disc read error ocurred" at startup.Sometimes I will blue screen before I even get to the login screen, and sometimes my monitor simply displays nothing, or just the mouse. I'd like to single out the problem before wiping my drive, and I don't have a system reboot disc. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Attached are the kernel files of one of the recent BSOD's, though I'm not sure which as I've blue screened a couple times after collecting the files.

Hello Gmanfreak.

Uninstall Avast using Avast Uninstall Utility. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Let us know the results.

Also, in the next time, if the problem persists, upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.

BSOD happens unpredictably, more often when doing something graphic intensive but not always.

The audio usually loops for a few seconds until the machine reboots.

It looks like memory corruption.

Test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.

Enable Driver Verifier. Enabling this should hopefully crash your system and then point to the faulty driver that is causing problems. However before you do, it is advised that you create a system restore point and backup first.

You might also want to isolate each stick of RAM and see if your computer crashes with each individual stick.

I wonder if someone might be able to help me with BSOD errors that I've been getting for the last 2 months. I've tried pretty much everything I can think of, and I'm having no luck figuring out what problem is.

The crashes are pretty random, constant, and the error codes (dump file attached), are inconsistent. Occasionally the comptuer will just freeze rather than BSOD, but that's not too frequent. I often get numerous crashes right when turning on the computer, but after 3-5 attempts, I can usually get it to fully boot, and stay on long enough to work on. But then it'll BSOD later.

The only thing I've noticed with the BlueScreenView results is that under the "caused by driver" category, I see ntoskrnl.exe more often than anything else. I've googled this, but haven't yet found any solution.

The Bug Check Strings are all over the place... nothing jumps out as being seen too often.

Thoroughly scanned my computer for possible viruses or malaware - no issues found

Cleaned the dust out of my computer and fans - no improvement

I have just gotten my first BSOD after I thought I solved my issues (bad ram). It has occurred after frequent bad stub errors, leading me to believe they are linked. I have tried to solve bad stub errors using sfc/scannow, returning corrupt files that couldn't be fixed. I have run AVG scan and Malware-bytes scan to see if some malicious program had altered files both returned nothing. I have only recently started having bad stub errors that occur on windows applications and 3rd party applications. I don't think my SSD or HDD is failing as my OS install is on the SSD and everything else is on the HDD, and the errors have happened with programs installed on SSD and with ones installed on HDD, therefore not linking it specifically to my hard drive or SSD (as far as to my understanding of the issue). It would be greatly appreciated if someone could look at my dump file to help determine the cause of my BSOD and to what I think will be the cause of bad stub errors. My windows 10 installation was upgraded to from windows 7, and I have installed all updates pushed to me by Microsoft. Lastly if it helps at all I had just stopped playing a game, so the computer had swung from high load to almost no load.

1. Shockwave Flash crashes and then things don't work. I've tried going into the Flash plugins file and disabling the internal Chrome installation which didn't work. So I then switched and disabled the OS installation which also didn't work. Then I reinstalled Chrome which still didn't work.

2. I have this error: chrome.exe - Application Error
The exception unknown software exception (0x40000015) occurred in the application at location 0x0104bf18.

This error was occuring both before and after reinstallation.

The good news is that all your dump reports were consistent. The bad news is that they indicate a driver as the problem. The driver is a Microsoft Driver and is actually not the cause, however. This consistency leads me to believe that it is a driver problem. Use Driver Verfier to help us find out which one.

Driver Verifier
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"

I built my own computer for the first time about a month ago and everything has been fine, but a few days ago I got my first BSOD and it has been excessive since then. I can't seem to pinpoint what I'm doing when it happens, because it can happen while doing anything from playing a game, surfing on chrome, or just sitting there. I tried to have a go at analyzing the event logs and I redownloaded and reinstalled my graphics driver but it did not help. I then found there was a newer BIOS version for my motherboard, so I updated that and there were no BSOD's for the entire day and I thought I fixed the problem. But then I got a new mouse, tried to install the drivers and now the crashes have started again. I get a BSOD on startup when I try to run driver verifier and it always get BSOD before I can finish a full scan with my anti-virus (microsoft security essentials). I also ran check disk and it reported no problems or bad sectors. I'll attach the minidump files here and I'm going to run a memtest, any help is appreciated. Let me know if you need any more info.

Hello all!

One of my PCs is having pretty frequent BSODs (a few times a day), can happen with just the desktop and no programs open or whilst playing games.

I originally thought this was a memory issue so did a memtest, got 9 passes so stopped it after that. HDD appears to be fine too (this is also all new hardware, purchased in november '14).
The most common errors it pops up with are Kernel security check failure and IRQ_not_less_or_equal.

The OS is Windows 10, however this also happened on 8.1 initially (I don't expect 10 to be stable, I'm happy to deal with it if something just isn't compatible - but would like to check if there's something I can do first! ). My other 2 PCs run W10 like a dream but they're all different hardware.

Here are the logs:
Thank you!

Ok so I've cleared my cache, deleted cookes, ran a bunch of anti-malware programs, found some stuff with Spyware search and destroy and deleted it but I'm still getting errors, specifically "Webpage is not available", this is the error code that chrome gives for it, ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED. 
I'm not sure if its malware or not, but its been going on forever and everything I try fails to stop it. No other computer is having this problem, I've also been having random disconnects from the internet when its working properly on other computers.

I don't know why the "Google Search" and "I'm Feeling Lucky" Buttons aren't displaying properly. Do I have a virus? I have AVG Free running in the background and ran a scan after this happened. I generated a warning, but it was cleaned up. Please take a look at the attached screenshot. Any help is appreciated.

A:Google.com Button Errors in Chrome

The obvious first thing to try is clearing out your cache, closing the browser, and trying again.

To clear the cache in Google Chrome
* Click on the spanner in the top right corner.
* Click Tools.
* Click the menu entry "Clear Browsing Data"
* Change the dropdown to "everything"
* Ensure that "Empty the cache" is checked.
* To avoid losing anything you might want to keep, uncheck everything else for the moment.
* Click the button "Clear Browsing Data".

Hi guys,

I built a PC about 12 months ago and have had BSOD problems on and off since making it.

The first month of operation was fine. Then during the Battlefield 4 Beta, I started to get BSOD's (can't remember the error), and then in Guild Wars 2. I did some basic troubleshooting but ended up reinstalling windows. This fixed the problem for several months.

Now for the last 6 months I have had increasing amounts of BSOD's, culminating in tonight's new record of 5 in one hour.

They are most apparent in various hard to run video games, including but not limited to the Battlefield 4, Beta, and Release; Aion; Firefall; Dota 2; Star Citizen; Elite Dangerous; Guild Wars 2, ArcheAge. Some of these, like Battlefield 4, were prolific. Some of these rarely ever crashed.

I've also had two blue screens while using Adobe After Effects, one using Photoshop, and one using Blender. I don't use these programs enough at home to have a decent sample size of usage.

99% of the time, the computer never bluescreens in general usage, or in heavy CPU usage. Only heavy GPU usage, from what I can tell. There have been one or two during normal operation for sure, but much rarer than ingame/program.

I have spent what time I can in the last 10 or so months, trying to figure out what it could be. I have done everything from Testing Ram (memtest for 48 hours, passed everything, no fails) to trying hundreds of drivers for every component. I have tried both BIOS on my GPU, but have not flashed it to a... Read more

A:Several BSOD errors, hard to repeat, extremely frequent

Hi Rasket, I'll see if I can help you. first, your dump files list a whole bunch of drivers and Windows Updates. Almost every one is a different bug code. My experience with ones like this are either a bad install, bad memory or a bad overclock. So, first of all, if you are overclocking anything at all, set everything back to default levels. Next I would like you to reinstall your graphics drivers using this method
NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems

Also, accept the idea that some of the games you are playing just cause serious issues for many people. I have helped at least 6 people in the last 2 weeks who had similar issues with Archage. From everything I can gather, it appears to simply be a very badly encoded game. I have had 2 people with otherwise stable machines that would BSOD from trying to install it. BF4, is not quite so bad, but there are quite a few people, including myself, who have serious issues with it. It was patched and patched and every time it got worse. Strangely, many people have no problem with it, others it gives them fits. Finally I had to simply uninstall it. So, at least part of your problem may be the games you are playing.

Next I would like you to test your SSD for any Firmware updates and run Seatools for DOS on your other hard drive (SeaTools for DOS | Seagate) please run both the short and the long test. The instructions are at the bottom of the page.

Please make sure your Windows updates are fully run and properly installed. Also, check y... Read more

Hi all,

I've been getting a lot of BSODs in the past couple of months with errors like "PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGED AREA", though this is one of many. It's particularly prevalent when playing graphically intensive games like Guild Wars 2, which is almost guaranteed to trigger it.

Initially, I thought it was a faulty NVidia 560 GTX card, so I brought it back to the shop and reinstalled my old ATI 6770. The crashes stopped for a few weeks just after I swapped out the cards, but recently have started up again. They occur at least once a day, often two or three times.

Every component I have is less than 12 months old except for the hard drives. There doesn't seem to be any overheating. I ran Memtest86 overnight on two occasions with no errors. I have changed Anti Virus software (from Comodo Firewall & Avast to Zone Alarm), updated all drivers as far as I can tell, and eventually had Windows 7 reinstalled - all to no avail.

'Who Crashed' indicates a different cause virtually every time I run it, usually blaming a third party driver but isn't able to indicate which one.

It's driving me mad at this stage as I have no clue what is the cause of the BSODs. I've attached the info from the Diagnostic Tool if anyone out there can help me.

Many thanks,

Hey everyone,
I have this Acer laptop that i purchased 3 years back. It gives me BSODs very often, mostly when the computer is idle or when i attempt to open up chrome. Also i have done a clean installation of the Windows 7 Home Basic 32 bit a week back and started installing all drivers and it was working without any BSODs for 4 days which was unbelievable but as i started installing applications (the last ones i remember installing before BSODs were Winamp, OpenSubtitlesPlayer) its again started giving me these BSODs with the same error code everytime. Ive attached the DM log collector report below(COSMICGATE-PC). Also Im new to posting threads so let me know if any more information is required from my side.

Hi, for the last week I have been putting together a low power, small form factor, miniITX windows 7 64 bit based HTPC. Unfortunately, while playing various types of movie files in either windows media center or windows media player, anywhere from immediately to 45 minutes into the playing of the media file either the video and audio will freeze, and a few seconds later, the system will power off with no warning messages and stay off until I turn it back on. The same thing has also happened a few times when simply browsing media in windows media center. Otherwise, it has not happened outside of playing media, such as doing routine tasks in the OS.

So, technically, I am not getting blue screens, but the windows log shows kernal power errors every time I reboot and look at the event viewer.

The hardware is as follows:

This could be a separate issue altogether but I have been unable to install the majority of windows updates (120 updates mainly consisting of windows 7 updates, security updates and .net framework updates.)

This build ran brilliant to start, until about 6 months ago I began getting frequent blue screens. I exhausted everything I knew to do(updated my chipset drivers, VGA driver, network card driver, updated my bios, dusted this thing out 100%, replaced power supply from 500watt to 750 watt)I've been monitoring fan speeds, and cpu temp (about 40 celcius at idle peaks at about 60 when stressed)

ive reformatted fresh today reinstalled the above drivers and still have the same issue

Hi, I'm new here, and afraid to take any serious action without some expert guidance (I don't have a good record when it comes to dealing with system files. R.I.P. My Aunt's Win98 1998-2007)I am using Vista Home Premium x86 Service Pack 2 on a Toshiba Satellite L305 with a Pentium Dual Core CPU, and 3 GB of RAM.Recently, I've been having many load errors on the net, namely Error 105, with an Error 101 here and there, and ironically enough, Google often can't find Google. I notice that a lot of memory is being used on unusual programs I'm not familiar with, so just to be safe, I downloaded GMER and ran it. Here's what it came up with the attached Notepad file, which unfortunately was so big, it had to be compressed into a .zip file... sheesh!Honestly, I stopped it after about 3 straight hours of nothing new added to this list... Is something seriously wrong with my laptop? I've been working on this for at least 4 and a half hours, and can't figure it out.(Irrelevant anecdote)Funny thing; what actually led me down the garden path was my Nintendo DS emulator. I couldn't for the life of me get the Action Replay codes to save! So that led me to it being a read-only folder, which led me to special permissions, and then to system settings, and the whole thing just snowballed out of control. Kinda blows my mind...

Hi there,

At least 3/4 of the time when I start up a session on Google Chrome I will be presented with several errors which flash up, usually, though not always as many times as I have tabs open.

It'll say something to the effect of, error writing or reading memory at "0x100046cf" and "0x10004606050" for example (The former I wrote down, the latter is an approximation!)

Most of the time I can just dismiss them and that'll be the end of that, earlier this morning however I had one of these errors, stopped to write it down and I got a very brief blue screen of death and the computer restarted!

Does anyone know what's going on?!

Hello everyone.
I have a BSOD/Stop Error problem that I am at my wits end in trying to fix.
Basically, starting a few days ago and getting worse these last 2 days my computer is randomly (as in, at random times/intervals) yet frequently (as in within a few minutes of booting) BSOD'ding.
The crashes don't seem to be related to a single driver and as far as I can tell, during no specific task.
Recommended troubleshooting files are attached.
Here is my system run-down:
? Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600) (7600.win7_rtm.090713-1255) - fully up-to-date and installed from disc on the 2nd of February on a freshly formatted 1TB HDD
?My system itself varies in age as it has been upgraded over time - between 2006 and now.
?CPU: AMD Athlon 6400+
?GPU: Nvidia 8800GT
?MoBo: I am not actually sure - this is because for the last month (since just before I installed Windows 7) I have been using an "old" Dell Motherboard (From an E521) while my "usual" motherboard is being repaired (Asus are pretty damned slow here in Europe...), I know it has an Nforce 400 chipset.

Hi - I keep on getting random BSOD while watching Netflix, Youtube, or just simply browsing (although it's more frequent on Netflix / Youtube). This has been going on ever since my PC was built, but I just kept on ignoring them. However I want to get rid of the problem because it is interrupting my work.

I wish i could provide more details, but the errors I am getting seem pretty random. My SF zip file that is attached on this thread contains dmp files from January to this date, and it can be seen that the errors are different.

Hope you can help. Let me know what can I do to help you guys investigate the issue.

Hi all. I am having some issues with my PC, and it would be great if someone could help me out.

Crashes almost always occur while browsing firefox- and they seem to occur more frequently when I have a ton of tabs open. I can run Mass Effect 3, Diablo 3, and Witcher 2, and KoA: Amalaur at max settings with no issues. (Ok, that's not really true- I can't run Witcher 2 at the "uber" setting).

That's fine- it's the cheapest component to replace, really. But I just want to make sure it's not some stupid driver issue that I can't identify.

Hi this is my first post I have looked around the internet for solutions to my problem but I never seem to be able to get the correct solution so I thought I would try some of the diagnostic tools I have found on these fourms as this is where I have been getting most of my information, I will try and be as clear as possible of what goes wrong.

1. I get the blue screen of death with different errors, below are some pictures of the errors

2. Once computer restarts my motherboard is only able to pick up my WD Green drive which has no OS on it so I get a boot error

3. I have to turn computer off and take out all the drives and only leave in my OCZ Vertex 3 SSD which have windows 7 installed, once i'm able to boot into windows 7 i have to shut down computer and they install the rest of my drives again this is the only way i have been able to get back into windows 7 and have all my drives working.

I have included below 2 zip files one created with Windows_NT6_BSOD_v3.03_jcgriff2_ program and the other with SF Diagnostic Tool i hope this can help someone with a lot more knowledge than myself to help me out

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

If you are overclocking STOP

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

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

The procedure:

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

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

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

Hello and thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

On Sunday 2/27/11, during internet surfing, I must have received virus/malware. Received several pop up screens that disappeared too quickly to read. Received warning to activate anti-virus and received notification that windows security was not working. Laptop went to blue screen. Restarted in safe mode w/ networking. Updated McAfee and ran full system scan, but of course nothing was found. Downloaded and ran malwarebytes and it found and quarantined Trojan.Fakealert and a bunch of PUPs from Dealio. Restarted in normal mode, and recieved BSOD again. BSOD error was: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ***STOP: 0x0000000A (0x0731E7B7,0x0000001B,0x00000000,0x826F66E9). Ran Malwarebytes again and it found more PUPs but no trojan. Deleted everything that was in quarantine. Restarted laptop in normal mode, tried to update windows security, but could not. After a few minutes, laptop went to BSOD again. In normal mode, laptop goes to BSOD a few minutes after start up - cannot access any programs. Completed all forum preparation instructions. Initally gmer caused BSOD (uwroiuoc.sys - Address 98A98582 base at 98A94000, batestamp 4cd7b97f ***STOP 0xB2000008,0x00000000,0x9927B582,0x00000000). Tried gmer again and it completed. As of now, laptop is inoperable.

I don't know what I did to my laptop, but ever since last week I've been getting BSOD every once in a while while on my laptop. Today was a System Exception Error and yesterday was an error STOP 0X00001E. I did a system restore to about two weeks ago BUT it still occurs, just not with the same frequency. Any help? I'm not sure if it's a driver issue, hardware issue, or software issue. I'm running a Dell XPS 17 Windows 7 Home. Any other info you might need please let me know. I've attached the SF Diagnostics Tool files to this thread. Thank you so much.

So I recently installed Windows 7 Home Premium on an Acer Aspire 5349. I've been having a bunch of issues with it since the install.

Firstly, When I boot, it takes me to the "Disk Check" screen and tells me that one of my disks needs to be checked for consistency. However, the disk in question isn't something like "C:" or "D:" it's "\\?\volume{c4afec15-cb60-11e4-9583-806e6f6e6963}". The disk check also automatically cancels. It doesn't prompt me with the usual " Press any button to stop the disk check" option, just straight to " Disk check has been cancelled"

When I eventually get to the desktop, I get the screen " Windows detected a hard disk problem ". I look at the details and I'm told that my C:\ drive has been reporting failures. When I check the status of the disk via the Disk Management tool I'm told that all my partitions are healthy.

When I actually use the laptop, it's very slow and frequently freezes. It takes a while to catch back up and sometimes these freezes lead to a BSOD. The BSOD message was KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR. I checked the event viewer and it also seemed that before certain crashes I would have driver controller error on an IDE Port. I've attached a picture of the disk check screen, event viewer, and memory dump. I apologize about the quality of the pictures, I couldn't screenshot the images on the actual laptop as it was freezing and crashing too often.

I believe I got the BSOD while entering a search argument. Attached is the zipped mini-dump. I don't think I have the tools to analyze the dump.

Can anyone verify the cause of the crash from looking at the dump?

Hey guys. This problem ALWAYS happens only on Google Chrome. If i visit any Tumblr page, my laptop just freezes. Sometimes it won't even show up the bsod. I have to use the power button to force the shut down and start it again. Also it happens randomly when watching YouTube videos. It has not been happening on any other program or game. It happens both on Windows 7 and Windows 8. I have dualboot. It WON'T crashes when i use some other browser like Opera or Mozilla Firefox which makes it kinda weird. I think it could be Google Chrome/Hardware issue.

System Specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit & Windows 8 Consumer Preview 64bit (dualboot)
Windows 7 Home Premium is OEM
The age of the hardware is like 6 months.
I reset my laptop plenty of times because of that issue, but i am running this installation from 1.11.2012

The dump is attached.

- Never re-installed the OS

A:BSOD while using Google Chrome

Software Concerns:Do you have Comodo Internet Security and avast! installed, or is it Comodo Firewally only? I cannot tell from the reports. If you do have CIS and avast!, remove one or the other.avast! Uninstall Utility | Download aswClear for avast! Removal
Analysis:Crashes are network related. May be due to your realtime antivirus software if you have two programs that accomplish the same task. Two antivirus programs can cause conflicts due to accessing he same system resources simultaneously.
