Multiple BSODs, all in the past week doing random things

Q: Multiple BSODs, all in the past week doing random things

Ok, new to the forum I keep getting 1a BSODs and the last one I got was a c1. I'm not sure where to go or what to do at this point. When I used BlueScreenView the common driver failure after activating verifier was ntoskrnl.exe. Any help is appreciated! I have had this rig for about 2 years now with no issue, and within the last week get a tone of BSODs (5+). I feel it is a software thing, but I wasn't sure and wanted to check here before doing a wipe and reinstall.

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: Multiple BSODs, all in the past week doing random things

Hello and welcome darksurfer I would first up try these in safe mode if possible


Then I would reseat all cards and sticks - you didn't mention what RAM you have and I would make sure you have the latest driver for the card and maybe do this


http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/105647-ram-test-memtest86.htmlthis one you will need to make a bootable disk set the BIOSto optical (or USB if preferred) boot the machine and let it run for at LEAST 8passes unless the errors come up straight away. Takes fair time to complete andsome leave it running overnight.

I have a feeling the BSODs are being caused by my USB audio interface, but there's nothing specific that I do that seems to trigger them. I've had a random BSOD every couple of months or so, but as the incidents were so far apart I didn't really bother investigating. However I've now had a couple this week alone, which is rather concerning. I recently changed the USB port my audio interface uses after dusting the PC out, which meant I had to remove / reinstall the device drivers for it and it seems there are more BSODs after doing this.

If that's the case (presuming a BSOD can't do any actual damage besides losing unsaved work?) then it would be great to know.

The PC was self-built in August 2012, all items were new except for the graphics card which was bought in September 2011.

Hey guys,

So lately I've had several BSODs the past week. I updated my video drivers and everything seemed to be okay, but then I got a new error code (located in dmp file) and then today I received a completely different code, 0x01E.

This occurs randomly, I can't recreate it. Sometimes it happens when playing video games, sometimes it happens while browsing the internet or watching YouTube videos.

I've read the instructions and I believe I have everything in order, apologies in advance if I missed something, please let me know otherwise.

I greatly appreciate anyone's help on this matter, as well as your time.

A:Several different BSODs the past week, completely random.

There are multiple different bugcheck codes blaming multiple different things, and one of the dumps is totally uncommon in nature. In this situation it would be better to determine the stability of the RAM at first.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Let us know the result. A camera snap of the memtest86+ window before closing the program would be nice.

I've been getting a BSOD or two almost every day for the past week or so. I tried upgrading to the new Nvidia driver and it seemed to make it worse so I rolled it back to the one I had. I followed the directions on this site to properly install the drivers so that I wouldn't have any conflicts but it seems to still be happening.

I've also tested my RAM many times and haven't had any errors come up.

It seems I get the biggest issue while playing games or watching videos. Tends to crash when I go between screens but that might just be coincidence.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Constant BSODs the past week or so

Chimi, I checked the last 5 dumps you had. 4 of the 5 listed the same thing. However, they were all different stop codes, which indicates a memory problem from my experience. I need to know all of your system specs, as specific as possible. We often have to look up a component and need all of the components with the Manufacturer and model. The following will tell you how to do it. Just please include your PSU and CPU cooler. Also, please put them in the place provided.

Hello, I've been on a bit of a journey the past week so I'll try to be brief and organized.

Last Tuesday, I added 2x4 GB of new RAM (same make, manufacturer, GBs, speed, etc. as the old RAM) and hooked up a second monitor (same as old monitor, though due to my GPU's available outputs the old one is on hdmi and the new one is DVI). Since then I have been having regular BSOD crashes, typically after 3-4 hours of consecutive use though on Sunday it managed to go 7 hours without crashing. I have had seven BSOD in the past week. There appears to be no common program causing them, I'll just be watching a movie, playing a game, or doing some typing when the crash will just happen.

For quick reference, the probable causes for each BSOD are listed in the minidumps as follows (from oldest to newest, I only thought to record the Stop data for the two most recent):

tcpip.sys Stop oxoooooo7F
hardware/dxgmms1.sys Stop oxoooooo3D (the minidump listed hardware, the actual BSOD showed dxgmms1.sys as the cause)

Trying to figure things out for myself, I first tried removing the second monitor after the second crash. When that had no effect, I tried updating my GPU's drivers through AMD Catalyst Control Center. Then I ran memtest86 for 10 passes with no errors (I've included a screenshot).

At this point I'm guessing it's a driver problem or something wrong with my GPU, since several of the minidumps seem to point graphics being t... Read more

So I would suggest you to remove the additional RAM and see if the BSODs continue or not.

For the past week I have been having random reboots. This never usually happens but it started after I updated Catalyst and started playing Team Fortress 2. It never reboots when I am on it, but it reboots when Its idle. I thought that maybe it was my CPU overheating so I decided to switch the power options to "Balanced" which doesn't shut it down but puts the computer to sleep after about 30 minutes. I have done virus scans and I am afraid that none of them are completely due to the random reboots.

I am also dual-booted to Ubuntu so when it reboots, it loads into ubuntu.

There was one BSOD but I didn't read what was wrong and it hasn't given me one since last week, so thats when I assumed it was the CPU and decided to lower the power settings to cooldown my CPU.

I am on a Gateway GT5692 (Gateway Support - Specifications) with a 1gb RadeonHD 4650 graphics card. I upgraded the PSU to a 500w Ultra. As well as installed a Ram fan to cooldown the Ram a year or 2 ago.

Normally in this position, I would format my HD and reinstall windows but at this moment, I do not have a backup HD hooked up to backup my files and there are plenty of files on here that I wish to keep.

If there is any other information you need, I will gladly fill you in as best as I can.

A:Random Reboot's for past week?

What's the make and model # of that Ultra 500 watt? If it's an X-3 or an X-Pro, then you're in good shape; if it's an Xfinity or an X-2, then ... not so much. If it's an Ultra X-Connect, get rid of it now.

System Specs:
- System was built in 2011, but GPU, SSD, and RAM has been upgraded along the way
- Gigabyte R9 290 Windforce
- 12 GB G-Skils Ripjaws DDR3-1600 RAM
- Asus Motherboard (not sure model)
- i5-2500k (stock clocks)
- Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, retail
- Samsung 840 Pro SSD
- Corsair TX650 PSU

I've been experiencing many BSODs over the last couple weeks, and I can't figure out why. Some of the common symptoms are:

- BSOD when waking up from sleep (extremely common)
- BSOD when attempting to get back into Windows after a BSOD
- Crash with graphics glitches after rebooting from a BSOD

I can get into safe mode just fine. No temperature issues on GPU or CPU during games.

I have done the following:

- Run Memtest, all clear
- Run Prime95, all clear
- Uninstalled all graphics card drivers using DDU and installed latest
- Updated graphics card BIOs
- Driver verifier does not cause a BSOD

Looking at the dumps, my thinking is bad RAM or a bad GPU. It seems like I'm getting a lot of errors related to Direct X drivers or when something is trying to write to memory.

I think my next step is to start pulling RAM and see what happens.

It's been years since I've had a virus or malware I couldn't shake on my own or with a little research, but this one seems really slippery.  It has infected both my and my wife's laptops. Whether that is because we share a wireless connection or because we've visited the same infected page, or some other possibility I do not know. Malwarebytes, Avast Anti-rootkit (both updated) found nothing, but TDSkiller and Trend-Micro Anti-Threat both turned up issues at separate instances under various names. I've been hammering at this for a week, and unfortunately I didn't keep very good logs of what I did because (foolishly, apparently) I thought for sure I could solve the issue myself no prob.
I reset Firefox (v. 28.0) as one site led me to check the troubleshooting information and there was indeed an unauthorized entry listed in the Important Modified Preferences (Conduit.exe and BackgroundContainer.exe if I remember correctly).
I've manually removed some suspect files in AppData and Registry.
It seems at least some of what I have done has slowed the pop-ups down. Day 1 it was fairly constant when I clicked links (sometimes even just clicking empty space or text boxes on a page), now it's 2 or 3 times a day I get a visible pop-up (Several other times a day I see a pop-up TRY to open but get killed, presumably by the pop-up stopper).  The visible popups cycle through about 4 ads, LinkBuck$, GREEFL, something with Cash in the name, and then another that ...

After Christmas I built my own PC. Every since then I have been getting different BSODs. They mostly occur while I am on youtube watching a video or have youtube open in the background. The most common one is 1000007e. I'm not sure what the problem is and i'm hoping you guys can help me out in finding a way to prevent thee BSODs. I have an AMD Phenom II x4 965 processor and 4 gigs of OCZ gold series DDR3-1333 also I have a GeForce GT 240 video card. Also I never uninstalled the drivers for the integrated graphics and my old 8400 gs also, so maybe the new graphics card is having some sort of interference. I have attached the minidump file.

Start off by removing Norton - known cause of BSOD on some Windows 7 systems. Use this removal tool to remove Norton: Download and run the Norton Removal Tool to uninstall your Norton product | Norton Support

If you want a free AV, try: MSE OR Avast
If you want a paid AV, try: Avast

Update all of your CD/DVD programs - if you do not know what programs uses this driver (see note below)

Hi. I've had some computer trouble recently(past couple weeks, fan issue, a data backup service not reverting ownership of files so I had to comb through my computer myself, lots of things) and I thought it might be a good idea to update some things.
I was annoyed about convenience and used the third party Ninite updater to try and update a lot of things at once on November 7th.
A day later on November 8th that's when the problems started rolling in.
BSODs about memory management and system service exceptions, they happened just about every day.
Even updating Windows further did me no good!
I had looked into this a little myself and found that in all cases, it was connected to firefox.exe. It tended to happen after I used it for a while, like having multiple (long) youtube videos open, but it would also happen if I simply left it idling with a few tabs open. I reverted to an earlier version of Java to try and fix this problem, as one of the root causes was with a java servlet.
No crashes for an entire day but then I grew frustrated with Firefox crashing, due to a specific Dropbox .dll, and thought to remove it.
Well, then I ended up getting a task scheduler error.
Long story short, I uninstalled Dropbox and re-installed it, but it said it needed a Windows update. The first time I tried to install the rollup update it said it failed, so I tried to update it overnight.
Unfortunately, when I woke up this morning I found that I got a BSOD. A brand new one to boot.
That wasn't goo... Read more

Hi everyone,

I've been having random BSODs on a daily basis for a week now, running Vista Business 32-bit. I'd say that the BSODs have started to occur right after a recently installed tv tuner card.

So, I removed the card and expected the BSODs to stop, but they haven't.
Here's a dump of the most recent BSOD I just experienced (and which prompted me to find some good help and register on these forums):

A:Random & new BSODs for over a week

Hello fractal

The first thing I would do is check the RAM

If you have more than one stick of RAM swap them over or take one out and try again with only stick #1. If it does not help or makes things worse swap the sticks and try again with only stick #2. This will identify if you have a bad stick.

Vista has a Memory Diagnostics Tool
1/ Click the Start button
2/ From the menu select Control panel
3/ In Control panel click the Administrative Tools Icon
4/ In the Administrative Tools Window you will see a menu of items. Scroll down this menu until you come to the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool and then click on this option
5 A new window will now appear with the following options:
Restart Now and check for problems (recommended)
Check for problems the next time I start my computer
6/ It is recommended that you choose the 'restart now and check problems option'
7/ The Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool will now start scanning your memory for problems
8/ After the diagnostic tool has finished checking the memory your PC will restart and details of the memory check will be displayed via an icon in the notification area.
9/ By default the memory check is set for 'standard'. If you want a more thorough check you can change the scan option by pressing F1. This will bring up the options window. From here you can change the scan from Standard to Basic or Enhanced. Please note that the Enhanced scan does take some time to complete.

My computer has been running fine for around 3 years now. Around 2 months ago I upgraded my graphics card and added 2 more sticks of ram (same brand as original 2). It has been running top notch since then, but as of the last week I am getting random BSOD errors. It has happened while in game, when idling, straight after hitting the enter button to logon to Windows, basically any time at random. The blue screens always give a different reason for the crash as well.

So far I have tried...
-Taking out the 2 new RAM sticks
-Running MemTest86 for 5 passes with all RAM sticks in...0 faults.
-Run CHKDSK...0 faults.
-Fresh install of Windows 10 pre-release ( but this auto updated and crashed itself, I then reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 onto a clean HDD )
-Updated ALL drivers, and keeping the system basic (i only have steam, battle.net and musicbee on atm)
-Installed Linux on a separate HDD...this has been working with NO issues whatsoever
-Turned off all sleep modes in Windows (including USB, HDD, Screen, System).

I have attached my PC specs from CPU-Z and a WhoCrashed report of the last few blue screens.

Any advice on where to look next is greatly appreciated, it's driving me nuts!

Hey there. I've been getting (seemingly) random restarts of my computer after it's been on for a while, sometimes minutes and some times it won't happen after it's been on for a day. For the last week I've been getting BAD_POOL_ERROR(s), leading me to do a chkdsk which came back clean. Today I took off my case and unplugged everything and put it back in, which didn't seem to fix anything. Today I got another BSOD (of which the dump is attached) and would like some help figuring out what's going on. I've also attatched the results of SF Diagnostics.

Hi, sorry for posting again. This is just a follow-up from my previous post:

I ran memtest86+ (standard test) on my 2x2GB Team Elite DDR3 sticks. Testing each stick for 5 passes showed no errors. Later I'll be testing my other pair, 2x1GB GEIL DDR3. Since Ken mentioned that I should also test the slots, I'm thinking of testing the next 2 sticks on different slots, basically trying to hit 2 birds with one stone, testing both the stick and the slot at the same time.

I was wondering, If all the sticks have no errors and all slots are ok, is it safe to say that the problem might be software or driver related? Would doing a fresh install be a good solution to the problem?

Also, my mobo has an ATI chipset and I now have an nVidia GPU, will installing the ATI southbridge drivers conflict with the nVidia GPU drivers?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Salrion,

Welcome to the 8forums.

It appears I cannot read the latest dump file, this could be caused by hardware damage. I think the hard drive might be causing this.
The 2nd most recent dump file says there might be memory corruption.

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums


MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

I started getting consistent BSODs about 3 months ago, mostly when playing League of Legends. I did a clean update and install of my graphics card drivers (using DriverSweeper) and it fixed the problem for about a month. Three days ago I started getting BSODs roughly once per day, mostly from watching streams on twitch.tv. I ran Driver Verifier this morning and was able to force one in about 10 minutes. It was a 0x000000d5 (Driver_page_fault_in_freed_special_pool) that pointed to ntfs.sys as being the culprit. Later in the day I got another BSOD while gaming that was a x116 and it mentioned something about the display driver attempted to reset (pointed to dxgkrnl.sys). Note that over the past 3 days I encountered a BSOD 4 times and each time it gave me a different bug check code. Appreciate any help.

Hey. So, I built my computer in August of 2015, and since then I've had nearly daily problems with BSODs. For a few months (between October 2015 and March 2016) they had gone away (no idea what happened to make them stop), but then randomly started up again. Originally and still for the most part, the BSODs happen on boot-up, especially cold boot-ups. However, lately, they're sorta just happening.. whenever. I've now also been getting random BSODs while I'm in the middle of using my computer which is new. It's ALWAYS event ID 41 Kernel-Power in event viewer. Also, the past two days I've been getting more crashes with kernel-power, but no blue screen shows and no minidumps have been created even though my computer is obviously set up to log minidumps.

I've tried doing debugging myself, but my errors seem to be so general that I can't figure out much. The dump files almost always point to ntkrnlmp.exe which, from the research I've done, really doesn't tell anyone anything on it's own :/ The errors which show on the actual blue screen vary a lot, anything from IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, memory management, corrupted pool, etc.

I've run memtest86 multiple times, always for 15+ hours and many passes, and no memory issues have ever shown up. My BIOS is up-to-date, and my CPU has been overclocked before but currently ISN'T because I wanted to see if that was causing any problems, but resetting it didn't stop any blue screens. I've tried ru... Read more

Hi there this is my first post on these forums so apologies if I'm not too familiar with the layout. I'm not too computer savy so if anyone could try simplify any answers/solutions that would be great. Basically the problem is for the past few months around start up of windows 7 I was getting freezes, BSOD errors (in particular IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and Page_fault_in_non_paged_area being the main ones) and my pc would be in a continuous loop of booting then freezing or shutting down and I couldn't get the pc to work. I thought the problem could be corrupted windows files so I reinstalled windows onto my computer using the isntallation disk and installed drivers and all was working fine for around 4 days. Each day my windows would have importaint updates so I installed them when prompted. One day I all of a sudden started getting the same errors I got before, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGEED_AREA and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and no new software had been installed at this point. I have tested ram and my hard drive with no errors showing although when looking at properties of my computer I have 20GB of ram (16GB Available) not sure if this has anything to do with it (2 x 8 GB sticks 1 X 4 GB stick). Hopefully you guys can help me out and prevent me shelling out on a new rig. Thank you, Conor .

Hey there,

So just to start things off, I'm 18 and don't really have much technical knowledge when it comes to computer hardware and errors, etc.

I started getting BSODs a while back, but they weren't very frequent, so I uninstalled all the programmes I had on my laptop and it stopped for the most part, so I assumed that was the problem.
As time went on up until now, they have been getting much more frequent, with the error message at the top stating something different each time, getting what seemed more serious. Sometimes when I get 1 BSOD, it would BSOD again on Startup, then again after that, which is rather frustrating haha.
I was reluctant to posting on forums, but it's come to the point of either fixing it logically, or ending up punching the screen xD

I can't really define when it happens, as it's more often some times than others, I have a hinch it has something to do with my graphics card though, as I would be playing a game, then I'd open up a new tab and watch a video then get BSOD at some point.
However it happens (less frequently for the most part) when idle or with minimum programmes running.

The programmes I mainly use on the laptop is:

Google Chrome
Sony Vegas Pro 11 (Video Editing Software)
Total Media Extreme (Personal Video Recording Software)

I can't remember any of the actual error codes, but some of the display messages i can remember are:

Hello oRmA.

BitDefender Self Protection Driver is causing the BSODs there.

c75fcd00 929d5060*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for bdselfpr.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for bdselfpr.sys
Description here: Driver Reference Table - bdselfpr.sys

Uninstall BitDefender using Bitdefender Uninstall Tool. 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.

Moreover, SCSI Pass Through Direct Host of Daemon Tools is causing a great number of crashes.

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for sptd.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for sptd.sys
Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.

Hello, I have a new MSI GT70 2OD, and I've experienced multiple BSODs in the few days that I have had it. It may help to know that I purchased this computer with installments from HDIevolution: HARD DRIVE: Super RAID v2 768GB mSATA SSD (3 x 256GB Plextor M5M mSATA SSD) + 1TB 5400RPM Hard Drive - installed by HIDevolution; CPU: 4th Generation Intel? CoreTM i7-4930MX Extreme Processor, 3.0 GHz (Max Turbo Frequency 3.9GHz), 8MB Smart Cache - installed by HIDevolution

The computer came installed with Windows 8. I promptly upgraded to Windows 8.1; however, the first BSOD came before the upgrade. I installed and ran Driver Reviver to make sure the drivers were up to date, and I updated all of the drivers it suggested. Driver Reviver caused a DRIVER_OVERRAN_STACK_BUFFER when it attempted to update one of the drivers for Killer Wireless. I manually updated that driver, and that particular BSOD is no longer an issue.
I have had multiple SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, a kmode exception and an unexpected kernel mode trap. The most recent BSOD occured while running a game, but they seem to come at random times.

I am not very familiar with PCs, or computers in general. This is also my first time using the forums, so please bear with me and let me know if I can assist in any way to diagnose this reoccurring problem.

Use Killdisk to wipe the drive clean then install Windows.

You have nasty rootkit. I recommend not to install Norton after.

I've been having a random BSOD on a daily basis, occasionally in small outbursts of 2-3 in a 30min period. All I've been doing is browsing the web, no games or intense production aside from a couple 30sec Adobe Premier files. There is no consistent factor to why the BSODs are being caused that I can see.

I bought a new gold+ rated 850w power supply to be sure that wasn't the issue. I tried reinstalling this machine twice from an image I've used on countless other machines without any problems. I even updated my 840 Pro FW and tried booting from an HDD instead, still had the random BSOD's. I feel like it's either my GPU or my MoBo's memory controller fussing about 32Gb of RAM, but I don't know how to confirm that using these logs. I attached everything the forum guide asked for so that those of you who know how can read my logs and find the issue.

If you solve it I wouldn't even know how to begin to thank you for restoring stability and Zen to my work and playspace.

Hi there, I've been having problems with an inherited computer recently, I got it after the owner said they were experiencing problems and the repair guys estimated it would cost as much as a computer to fix so they bought a new one.

I think this was just a case of lazyness by the repair guys so I took it home and tried to start it. it wouldn't boot into windows so formated I loaded windows 7 U 66 and boom it worked.

Now I've had a few BSODS on it and updated what I could with different websites from microsoft and HP I can't figure out what is causing it
ranging from "irql not less or equal" to "fage fault in non paged area" and "bad pool header"

Any Ideas?

problemes started only a few days ago
I upgraded my ram to a pair of Corsair Vengeance @ 1866 Mhz (2x4gb)
Everything was fine, but Battlefield 3 starting crashing every time, it could be after 1min or 1h of play time
My CPU was overclocked at 4Ghz, so I put it back to its stock frequency wich is 3.3 Ghz, but it did not solve the problem.
Starting maybe yesterday or the day before that, only while playing BF3 I was getting BSOD instead of bf3 crashing to desktop, I used 'bluescreenview' to see it was ntoskrnl.exe the problem. Reinstalled windows, but nothing change, still bsod while playing bf3 (even tested with mafia 2, same result). Then I started having BSOD while only surfing on internet, and every time it was a different driver the cause of BSOD.

I ran every test I could think of, ram, cpu, etc but everything seems to be ok so I don't understand

My spec:
Asus Crosshair V Formula
AMD Phenom II x6 1100T Black Edition 3.3 Ghz (cooled with Corsair H80)
Corsair Vengeance 2x4Gb 1866Mhz 9-10-9-27
Twintech GTX 570 1280mb GDDR5
SSD Samsung Series 830 128gb sata 3
HDD western digital caviar green 5400 rpm 1000gb sata 3
OCZ Modxstream pro 700W

I believe (but I am not sure of anything...) it is the motherboard, because the first time that computer booted, the motherboard was touching the side panel, and it just wouldnt boot until I saw that ... then it booted but the cpu fan was not detected (not corsair h80 at that time, stock cooler) I had to plug it som...

Seems to happen randomly with no real triggers apart from use of the computer. If I leave the PC alone it will crash eventually without me doing anything. If I am using it, it will crash much quicker (and time till crash seems to be inversely proportional to how much I'm doing). It's happened several times today alone. I've not had my PC on for a month or so but it had been occurring on and off before then too.
I've tested the memory and hard disk recently (not today) and there were no errors. Today I also got rid of Eset, Daemon Tools and a few other programs I thought could be causing issues. I've done countless other things and have tried 2 different hard drives and so on but no luck so far. TDSS Killer found nothing. Computer isn't overheating and shouldn't be short of power (it has been running fine for 4 years or so without problems until this year).
I've attached the log files so hopefully someone can make more sense of them than me. Had to upload in .rar rather than .zip and delete half the logs for it to actually upload though! Thanks for any help!

Hello everybody, since 2 weeks my notebook is having some Bsod.
In order



the last two after i used verifier

These errors have been happening at any random time, browsing the internet, working on matlab, working on xampp and Wordpress.
I was thinking at beginning it was some virus, then i formatted and reinstall all, but after 2 days it restarted to have Bsod.

Could be some windows 7 update ??

I've also tried Memtest 86+, sfc /scannow. and there were no problems

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

Since I installed windows 8.1 I have been having some BSODs.
They are seemingly random since sometimes I experience none in several weeks but sometimes I get them twice or three times a day and they are different. The thing in common, however, seems to be adresses in ntoskrnl.exe +153ca0 several months ago and +14f1a0 nowadays. Otherwise I have had times with BSODs not closely related to this. I have installed the newest drivers and BIOS (to my knowledge) and most updates (without KB3000850 since I have read about issues with it).

I am getting multiple different bug check strings for the BSODs. It first started I came up to my computer yesterday and it was frozen on a BSOD and didnt restart. When I shut it down and booted the computer back it up was looping through BSODs and restarting, without ever actually starting up. I shut the computer down and removed my video cards. Started the computer back up and was able to get to the login screen. With out no avail BSOD happened again. This point I removed two sticks of memory. The BSODs do not happen as much but know I get Memory_Management BSOD errors. I have ran the windows memory diagnostic tool and it came back with no errors. I tried uninstalling the Nvidia video card driver for my video card and having the latest driver intstalled and still receive these BSODs. I am hoping to not have to completely wipe and install fresh. I have attached the zip file the posting instructions thread said to do. Let me know if there is anything else I need to provide as well.

Thank you in advance!

I'm not really sure of the problem, but I seem to be getting many random BSODs. It is my sister's computer, and she has been having problems for a few months now. The computer wouldn't let her install SP1 on Windows 7, and it kept getting BSODs, so I decided to reinstall the OS for her. I did that about a week ago, and it doesn't seem to have fixed the BSODs. The computer was ungodly dusty, so I cleaned it out. I also installed Speed Fan to check out the temperatures. I noticed the graphics card was running at 78 C under no load, so I took it out and replaced it with one of my old ones. Temps went down to 44 C but I am still getting BSODs.

I appreciate any help that I can get. Thank you!

this is my first post. I'm from Germany and I hope you'll excuse my English.

About 2 years ago I purchased a used Thinkpad T500 via an authorized reseller. From the beginning I experienced random and non-reproducible BSODs. The notebook was running Windows 7 Prof back then. Given that I wanted to use Linux I did not pay much attention to those instabilities. Linux was running perfectly without any flaws, no matter which distro.
About 1.5 years ago I needed Windows again and decided to try it once again and immediatly got random BSOD again, right after a fresh installation and even after getting all updates and all the newest device drivers. Being within warranty I handed the notebook in to an authorized service partner. They told me they could not find any problems and just replaced the heat pipe. Disappointed I switched back to Linux and never had the time to investigate the problems any further. I also installed Windows 8 and the problems persisted.
Now I decided to investigate any further and decided to install Windows 8.1. From the beginning and also after upgrading to the newest available device drivers I'm experiencing the following BSOD.

Just a screenshot from BlueScreenView:

My computer has been randomly blue screening for a long time now. The blue screens seem to come back with random drivers as the cause, and I have not been able to find a solution to any of them. I have reinstalled windows, and tried almost anything I can think of. At this point I think it may be a hardware problem but I don't know how to go about finding what is the cause.

I have tried the following tests already:
Video stress test with fumark - Ran fine for seven minutes and then restarted. There were no screen tears, max temp was 76 degrees Celsius.
Ram with memtest86+ - Ran for 8 cycles with no errors
Driver verifier - After some time, the screen suddenly fills with random colored lines with no minidump after restart
Windows update SFC and SURT - installed fine, I'm not very sure what that test was trying to do

I've attached a dm log that I took minutes before writing this.
I appreciate any help in trying to identify or fix my problem.

A:Multiple BSODs, random errors

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (Cx05) probably a driver.
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have raid update its Driver.


*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5-7 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Driver verifier

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff 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 y... Read more
