Multiple BSODs and restarts

Q: Multiple BSODs and restarts

OK, so I have the problem with BSODs. I've searched for solutions around the net, but the problem seems to get worse. What happens is this:
- computer starts, Windows load but very soon I got the BSOD message, or a restart, or a black screen
(sometimes the screen is white).
- I've cleaned the computer from dust, I've re-checked the cables
- I did the memtest and it says everything is okay (multiple test overnight). I tried to work with 1st memory kit, and then the second kit and then with both. The problem stays the same.
- I've moved from old hard drive to SSD disk - the problem is the same.
- I've updated the drivers for my motherboard/graphics - that didn't help either.

So, what is causing the BSOD?
There are, of course, times when computer works normally.

If I am on the internet, it doesn't matter if I use Firefox, Chrome, Opera or some other browser - I still get the BSOD.

I don't do overclocking.

I'm adding the zip file of DM Log Collector and a screnshot from BlueScreenView.

I would appreciate any help. Thank you in advance!

Preferred Solution: Multiple BSODs and restarts

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 and restarts

You are running an ASUS Product ID (PID) on a Gigabyte board.
This makes your installation counterfeit.
Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.

Code:
OS Configuration: Standalone Workstation
OS Build Type: Multiprocessor Free
Registered Owner: Yuzer
Registered Organization:
Product ID: 00426-OEM-8992662-00173
Original Install Date: 5/7/2015, 2:52:26 AM
System Boot Time: 7/12/2016, 11:22:11 AM

[01]: AMD64 Family 15 Model 107 Stepping 2 AuthenticAMD ~3100 Mhz

I recommend to install a genuine copy of Windows.
If, after you have installed a genuine copy of Windows, you still get BSOD's we'll be happy to assist you.

Your BIOS is also dated prior Windows 7 release, another indication towards piracy.

Dear community,

For the last month or so, I have been having days where there would be multiple BSODs in a row and I can not even use my laptop properly. Now I don't know enough about computers to be able to fix this problem myself, and that is why I've come here to ask for help.

Problem: When I run CSGO from Steam I crash a couple of seconds in of playing. I've been playing for a while (2months) and now recently (today) the problem seems to reboot consistently after a couple of seconds. Desktop experience is fine, no crashes or random reboots there, yet (surfing).
 
Furthermore, I was getting NO BSODs to get the errors (logs were turned on). I turned 'Automatic Restart' from off to on and recreated the crash but still no BSODs, so unsure if it actually packed up via Sysnative.

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 .

The BDODs appear to be of multiple types.

I've been having BSOD trouble over the past four or five months now. The BSODs typically happen once a week, sometimes twice, with small strings of daily crashes here and there. I'm at my wit's end when it comes to trying to figure out where the problem lies. All of my parts are under warranty, so I'm desperate to find out which one, if any, are at fault.

I've tested my hardware extensively. Memtest86 for 7 passes on multiple occasions, using different stick and slot combinations. Ran torture tests using Prime95 for the processor. All hard drive checks come back without problems. Ran Furmark on my video card with no artifacts.

The BSODs happen most commonly when using video playlists for both Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic, multiple types of files. They also sometimes occur when playing particular games (Borderlands II, Dark Souls). Installing a fresh copy of Windows 7 did not remove BSODs, even after running it in factory settings with no additional installations.

I have attached a dump file, and I thank whoever attempts to assist me.

A:Multiple BSODs, Multiple Bugchecks (0xD1, 0x3B, 0x50, 0x0A)

Hi anthonylert.

The versatility of the bugchecks are the indication of failing memory prima facie, but as you said you ran Memtest86, can you run the memtest86+?

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

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

Also, disable bluetooth,at least as a test. The Atheros bluetooth module is appearing to be failing.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Let us know the results.

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
Skype
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:

Last couple weeks i've been having a large amount of bluescreens, including but not limited to bccodes 116, d1, 4e, 1a, 50 and 7a. Last night it also froze two or 3 times with no bluescreen. I recently upgraded my Phenom 9550, Biostar A770E and 6GB of DDR2-800 with an i5-2500k, an MSi P67S-C43 and 4GB of DDR3-1333. The problems didn't start with the hardware upgrade, just escalated.

Yesterday I formatted my HDD and did a clean install of windows in hopes that my problems were just driver conflicts, so as of now i only have 3 crash dumps, 4e, d1 and 1a. 4e and 1a in BlueScreenView only show ntoskrnl as the culprit and no other drivers. d1 points at both ntfs.sys and ntoskrnl. A couple of the old crash dumps pre-format were citing nVidia and DirectX drivers.

I've put my RAM through 16hrs+ of memtest86+ testing, and used the windows memory diagnostic and the memory test in my BIOS. I also checked my PSU voltages with a multimeter, all of them check out. My graphics card is moody and sometimes artifacts heavily in games, sometimes works fine. Temperatures are not an issue, My GPU gets to about 72C in games and 86C in furmark torture testing without crashing. my CPU sits around 38C idle, 50-60 load, 70-80 in p95 without crashing.

specs:
Intel Core i5-2500k (stock cooler and clock)
2x2GB G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3-1333
MSi P67S-C43 mobo
ZOTAC nVidia GTS250 (512MB)

Antec EA-650 PSU
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

A:Multiple BSODs, multiple BCCodes, does not happen in safe mode.

(The problems didn't start with the hardware upgrade, just escalated.)

so you changed out your motherboard/cpu/memory and did a clean reinstall of windows. so the only things left are video card/harddrive or power. have you updated your video card drivers? also try running chkdsk on the harddrive.

Hey really lost on this one as I have not really dealt with BSODS before. I build my computer a couple months ago. Recently while gaming I have had roughly 5 BSODS. They are all for different things it seems like and I have no clue how to fix it. It wont do it while sitting on the computer on firefox or just the desktop but usually an hour into gaming I will start to get them. Any help would be greatly appreciated as my computer did not do this when I first built it! Thank you! I attached my file from your guys tool that you requested. Also I dont know if it makes a difference or not but when the computer crashes, all of my desktop shortcuts will be in random places not where I originally placed them.

Hi. Last year, I bought a new PC for graphical software and gaming. From the beggining it had problems (I was recieving BSODs), so, I tested RAMs. It resulted that RAMs we're bad. I returned them in warrantly. (The PC was assembled by the shop, components we're choosen by me so that aren't any compatibility problems). Ok, so, I recieved new RAMs. But, even now, problems still exist. Now, even more, I recieve artifacts when I open a intensive graphical app (in some cases,even Youtube causes them). The more I stay on that app, more artifacts appear, until I recieve a AMD Display driver crash and, after that, a BSOD (sometimes,it directly gives BSOD, without driver crash). I tried to interchange RAM positions in all possible ways, but it didn't worked.
The GPU can't be placed on the 2nd PCI-E slot, because it is too long, and reaches the HDDs cage. I even tried a BIOS update (it worked, but it didn't helped me). I know that I removed the BIOS battery, I left it about 1 minute out, and put it back. That night, PC worked well. Next morning... The problem appeared again. I also tested CPU and HDDs, and they're all good. Can you guys help me? I remained out of ideas. Thanks!
P.S:
As the BSODs appears, I will upload screenshots too. I don't have now any screenshots with BSODs. Instead, I used the program from the BSOD help, and I made a log, attached to this post.

Hey guys my pc is crashing constantly and I am not even able to launch it properly. I think it is hardware related. Anyways here is the dump. Thanks in advance.

I have Windows 7 64bit installed at the moment.
When I boot my pc I am offered a launch up repair,resulting in a BSoD.
When I want to choose the "Start Windows Normally" option, W7 either freezes on the boot screen with nothing doing or on the "welcome" screen it is like 10seconds, then freeze, and thats about everything.

Atm I am on Safe Mode w/ networking waiting for the next freeze.
I appreciate every help guys. Thank you for your responses.

Today I have had like 5 BSoDs. one saying something about watchdog.sys, the other was nvlddmkm.sys or something similar, then there was a system exception as well.

A week ago, this 'freezing & restarting problem' made its appearance. I firstly formated my drive and installed 64bit XP and then again Windows 7. Although I installed XP, the problem persisted.

None of my hardware is overclocked.

Hello,

I've had on going issues for the last month or 2 that is driving me up a wall.

My computer has been randomly restarting and BSODing. Most of the time it is random restarts.

The machine has 6gb of RAM installed. Most of the time after it restarts or BSODs the initial bios slash screen only shows 4gb instead of 6. To make it show 6gb again I would either take out the 3rd DIMM and put it back in or lightly push on each DIMM. After doing that it would show 6gb again. If it kept crashing after doing this I would just leave it showing 4gb and it seemed to run much longer without a crash.

I did memtest on each stick and they all passed.

This lead me to believe I had a bad DIMM slot so i RMAed the motherboard. When I got the new one back the same issues persisted.

After talking to the G.Skill they thought it might be the RAM. So I ordered another identical set. I got those today and I'm still having the issue. However, after putting in the new set of RAM I've gotten all BSODs instead of restarts.

Also, the issue seems much worse first thing in the morning. I'll usually have 5+ crashes within an hour of starting the system in the morning. But then I can be good for 4-5 hours or more.

I'm really hoping someone here can help me out. I run my company from this computer and it's been extremely hard to get any work done.

A:Random Restarts and BSODs

Hello,

First off, make sure you are following proper order of population for your RAM. I have attached a copy of the relevant page from your motherboard manual.

If that doesn't help, then run Memtest86 on all sticks at the same time, from a cold boot (several hours' rest). If you didn't use Memtest86 the first time, see here: RAM - Test with Memtest86+ - Windows 7 Forums

Also, what is the make/model of your PSU?

Finally, do you have a different graphics card you can try?

You uploaded the application instead of the results please try this method.

If you wish to have others 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.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

Hello,
I am having some serious problems with my PC. It freezes, speakers are sometimes making a RRRRRR noise (last package of bits sent to speakers, I think, being "produced" over and over again), sometimes it just restarts, then it freezes in bootup (even in BIOS or in POST, just EVERYWHERE), sometimes the image on display gets "shattered" (as if the original image, the last frame displayed, got mixed up in lines and squares of different colors), sometimes it freezes in BSOD (that's hillarious), I could go on and on. I am almost sure my motherboard is faulty, but I consider this my "last hope" before making a complaint and trying to get a new mobo.

I recently reinstalled my Windows twice because of stability issues and have now been experiencing random bluescreens and restarts. We've been trying to solve this for days, even had a guy stress test it for over 30 hours but he didn't have any BSODs then.. Now I've got it back and the problems persist. I already checked peripherals so they are ruled out (I think).

EDIT: I use Windows 8.1 64 bit and have all the latest updates.

I have included the results of the SF Diagnostic Tool.

Please help.

Hi !

I was wondering if anyone can help me to determine why my sons computer have these random restarts and BSODs.

Earlier it happened like maybe once a day or so.

Now it starts happened more frequently, like 4-5 times a day and

well, it's time to do something about it.

The computer first go BSOD for like a tenth of a sec, too short to see what it says, then it restarts completely.

So I wonder, is there anywhere you can find what it said on the BSOD screen after the restart, so you can check for the error ?

I can say what its not, it's not the OP system, since it doesn't make any difference if its newly reinstalled or not.

The CPU temp are ok, only around 45c.

The motherboard is fairly new, not even a year, but on the other hand it doesn't have to mean a lot. Also the graphic card isn't too old.

It's a Celeron 2,4GHz with a P4S8X-X motherboard. 1280 DDR-ram.

What should I look for ?

Help me please !

Pretty much once a day, sometimes twice my system will restart for no reason. Sometimes I'm not even using it, pretty much only background software running and it crashes. Sometimes I'm watching a movie in Media Player Classic or youtube/flash player in IE 8 and it crashes. My old hard drive was making wierd noises (running XP), so I replaced it with a brand new Western Digital, but the crashes continued (I copied over files from the old HD, but not in the system partition, in a separate one)

I really appreciate it if you guys could help. I'm afraid to keep replacing parts and wasting money without fixing the problem.

I use 2 monitors (a Dell 24' Monitor - 1080p and a 42' Panasonic TV 720p).

Hello,
 
Thank you for taking time to look at this for me. I upgraded to windows 10 from windows 8.1, and never really noticed an issue, but would get random restarts. It was infrequent but still bothered me. I decided to reinstall windows 10, hoping a fresh install on a clean harddrive would help. I am still getting random BSODs and restarts. Its concerning because the restarts are similar to a power loss. The BSOD appears for a split second then the computer completely powers down before restarting. Otherwise the computer runs fine, always has. No problems at all before switching to windows 10.
 
I saw a similar thread about the restarts, which requested a file from event viewer so I included that as well as the 2 requested from the pinned topic
 
here is the rest of the information:
 
· OS - Windows 10· x64· What was original installed OS on system? 8.1 (Have since done a full reinstall of windows 10)· OEM version of windows 8.1· Age of system 1 year· Age of OS installation - 4 days (reinstalled on Dec 26 2015)· CPU i7 4770k (no overclock)· Video Card Gtx 780· MotherBoard - Asus maximus hero VI· Power Supply - brand & wattage corsair hx650· System Manufacturer - homebuilt· Desktop

My computer occasionally restarts itself or shuts down. Sometimes it will do a complete restart and I only know it because the Active Desktop Recovery screen is on my desktop suddenly. Sometimes it will freeze and the monitor will go black and flash an error message intermittently ("No input signal" message) after which I can no longer manually restart or shut down the computer, but instead have to turn it off and back on using the main power switch at the back of the tower. Sometimes it will restart but stop at the first black screen to alert me with the statement "S.M.A.R.T. status bad backup and replace error..." and asking me to press F1 to continue (I have an extra HD but moved files off it some time ago). The computer will restart/shutdown/freeze as little as once per day or as often as every 10 minutes if I am doing something like playing in foobar2000 or have photoshop open, anything I happen to enjoy, it seems . I cannot pinpoint these programs as culprits, only that I've noticed that the pc will absolutely do something when foobar2000 is running, for example. It shuts down at seemingly random times too.

Recently my computer has been restarting randomly, and by restarting I don't mean shutting down, waiting a bit and then starting again, I mean the screen goes instantly black and restarting happens immediately, the computer never stops making the usual noises (fans etc) during any of this.

Occasionally, instead of restarting, the screen will display glitched for a moment before actually displaying a BSOD (error code 0x0000007F) and then restarting normally.

This so far has only happened while focus was on Google Chrome (47.0.2526.58 beta-m (64-bit)), with all but 1 of them happening while watching a Youtube video (happens randomly, sometimes even after hours of watching videos), the one exception was on twitter.
Gaming and other tasks that strain the pc much more than Chrome work just fine.


I've attempted memtest, sfc /scannow and tried updating every driver.
Nothing is overclocked and fans are working exactly as they always did.
I checked the error logs Windows outputs using BlueScreen Viewer, and there are by far not enough logs for how often the computer crashes, so make of that what you will...

No Dmp's included in the upload please try this method.

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
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
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.

So my computer won't start Windows. Every time I turn the computer on and try to boot Windows 7 it has the splash screen that says "Starting Windows" and then it flashes a BSOD (literally flashes, way too fast for me to read the error message). My computer then immediately restarts and goes in this endless loop of trying to start up and restarting. I've never encountered a problem like this before, and using repair options by booting from the installation disc didn't help. I also tried booting in safe mode, and that didn't work either.

I'm running off of my flash drive right now that has ubuntu on it and I can access my boot drive (a 60GB SSD) and my 1TB HDD. I tried installing ubuntu on my HDD but booting from it just tries to boot windows.
What can I do to solve this problem? I can provide additional information if necessary.

The only pieces I'm reusing from my old rig are the monitors, and my DROBO. I'm afraid, looking at some of my error logs, that the problem might be with the DROBO. For those that don't know the (Drobo Home), it's an external hard drive enclosure that is similar to RAID, but doesn't require all of the drives to be the same size. Mine attaches via iSCSI, or SCSI over gigabit ethernet, direct cabled.

I'm attaching my reports, and I would greatly appreciate any insight you guys might give me. Thanks in advance for your time.

A:BSODs and Restarts at random intervals

Some additional info I forgot in the original post:

While I think that the Drobo is possibly to blame, I can't easily disconnect it and see if the issue changes. This failure happens every day or two, and MOST of the data I use on this computer lives on the Drobo, so I wouldn't really be able to use the machine without it attached. Suggestions?

Running "WhoCrashed" gives me a lot of these:

On Mon 11/7/2011 5:20:51 PM GMT your computer crashed

This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

Is there something wrong with my network/iSCSI drivers, maybe? I'm pretty sure I have them all updated.

(Well then, as I was beginning to type this, my computer locked up once, then after rebooting I tried again and it randomly restarted on me, my luck, right?)

Hello. I have been experiencing lockups, restarts, and BSODs as of recent. My computer is 2-3 years old, and most of my information is located in my profile related to my system specs. This issue has begun occurring about a month or two ago, malwarebytes has had 2 full scans through my computer and has found nothing, Microsoft Security Essentials(My static antivirus) did not pick anything up as well. I've opened up my case and cleaned out the dust, I've given my hardware a good look over and noticed nothing out of the ordinary (no bulging capacitors, no dead fans) which is a bit disheartening. Usually I come here and read other posts for my issues, but this one I can -not- solve on my own, this is my 3rd day of attempting to diagnose my computer's problem and I don't think I'm getting anywhere. (Which is bad considering I have weekly papers to do for college classes as well, looks like I get to practice my handwriting in any case today.)
Help would be very much appreciated, thank you!

Hi, I've been experiencing a problem with my pc lately. At the most random times my pc would freeze up and I would have to restart it. Other times it would restart all on its own or the BSOD would appear and I would end up restarting my pc. I cleaned my pc hoping that it would improve the situation, but that didn't help.

Hello All - please let me say thanks in advance for any assistance. I completed the system specs form when I set up my account.

I have an HP Pavilion p6540f with the following:
windows 7 prof 64-bit SP1,
8GB RAM,
two 1TB Seagate hard drives,
an AMD Phenom cpu,
an ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card
a Foxconn motherboard.

My problem is BSODs, spontaneous reboots or system freezes. Based on what I've seen on the internet, there seem to be several areas which could cause such a problem: something wrong with the RAM, overheating, or underpowered, the graphics driver, or something in the BIOS that needs upgrading.

As for the memory, I burned memtest to a cd and booted from that and let memtest run over night to check the RAM. It came back with no errors.

As to the overheating and underpowered possibilities, there is a CPU fan, a case fan and the fans associated with the power supply. The case fan and cpu fan seem to be functioning normally. I had the original 250W power supply replaced with a new 350W power supply which also seems to be functioning normally.

As far as the BIOS is concerned, it's AMI v6.04, dated 5/21/2010. There is a file available from HP, and that I've downloaded, called sp49851.exe. This is supposed to upgrade the BIOS to v6.09. I thought upgrading would be good since one of the things it's supposed to fix is a problem related to the machine not coming out of hibernation which sounds similar to what I've been experiencing. I ran this yesterday eveni... Read more

Hi, i joined this forum because i see people are very helpful to each other and i have quite a similar problem to others.
I bought Windows 7 Home Premium and my old OP was Vista Home Premium.
I did a clean install because i didn't want the crap from before coming along.

When i installed it,32 bit, i did the custom installation on the C drive, but when it had finished, some old files were still there :S

Anyway the main problem is, now very frequently i get BSOD, which says, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, whilst my speakers buzz OR the PC just simply restarts itself. Every now and then it just simply freezes

Driver wise, i've checked the main things, graphics etc. and it says its all up to date.
Ane help would be appreciated
Thanks very much!

Obvious thing here to check first is to see if you're running latest driver for audio. Update if appropriate.

C:\Windows\Minidump

Copy a few of the latest file there to another directory then use Winrar on them. Attach the .rar to a new post here using the paperclip function of the new post. The delightful member base here at 7f will have a look and have further suggestions should they still be necessary.

Hello there, I'm having a few problems with my computer that I've been unable to figure out on my own. Starting a few months ago my computer began getting a few BSODs, typically while playing The Sims 3. Over time the computer would also restart on it's own with no BSOD, or sometimes just freeze completely. And even when I do get a BSOD, it's not always the same error. Now it happens even when I'm not gaming, and it occurs roughly every other day or so. In fact today I had 3 incidents where the computer seemed to shut off completely. The 3rd time it did that, the fan came on afterwards as if the computer was trying to restart, but that was it. Needless to say I'm a bit concerned and confused as to what's causing the problem.

If anyone can help out it would be greatly appreciated. I've included an attachment with everything this thread says I would need.

Just a bit of a heads up:

- Windows XP was originally installed, I installed Windows 7 last August or September
- The computer as a whole is roughly 3.5 years old, though some bits(like my sound card and video card) are newer

Hi,
It used to be rather erratic and happen only once every couple of days, then I would sometimes have stretches as long as a week or more without any crashes but recently I've been having them systematically at EVERY startup!
 
I start my computer, it will usually boot up into Windows 10 Pro 64bit and then I rarely have to wait more than a few minutes for it to freeze or suddenly restart (more rarely a BSOD). Then starts a cycle of a few more restarts and freezes - always happening almost instantly or after a few minutes - before it eventually stabilizes and can then run reliably for the rest of the day!?
 
This is why I've ruled out temperature problems as it would seem the reverse would happen, i.e. crashing AFTER sufficient time was given to the system to heat up.
 
I have run 2 passes of MemTest without any errors but I've heard that as many as 10 might be needed to reliably exclude RAM problems but seeing how slow it runs the test on my 12Gb of memory, I couldn't be without my PC for that long!? 
 
Other useful troubleshooting info: I've recently upgraded to Win 10 in hope of solving my problems - it was already happening under Win 7. It's a 2nd PC I bought off ebay some +- 2 years ago so I don't know how old exactly it is but you'll see the specs in the attached files I guess.

For the past few weeks, my computer has been experiencing a couple of different failures. Sometimes it freezes up (including the mouse), sometimes it BSODs (different error messages at different times), and sometimes it just shuts off and restarts, as if the power had been momentarily cut. Sometimes it goes a few days between failures, and sometimes it happens multiple times an hour.

I've tried the following:

update drivers
restore from restore point from before the problem started
memtest86 (ran 11 times with no errors)
reinstall Windows

Here are the specs from the TSG SysInfo:

Hello!

For the last year I've been having problems with random BSOD, hangs, and system restarts. Sometimes there are several each day, sometimes there are a few days between. It seems to happen predominately when I run games with 3D graphics, but it's definately not exclusive to that.

My system is an Alienware Aurora R2. Windows 7 64 bit. Tell me if any specific system components would be useful and I can figure out what they are.

I've ran memtest a while ago and chkdsk without finding any problems. I've used Dell's service to check for suggested driver updates and done that. I've updated the latest graphics card driver.

I've tried some basic googling and some of the common solutions but nothing so far has fixed it, and since I don't know what's exactly wrong I have a hard time proceeding.

A lot of the system dumps are attached in the .rar.

If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be grateful.

Hi, and welcome to TSF.

The minidumps are only a small portion of the information collected if you follow the instructions here : Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista.

Whilst you wait for an analyst to come along, I would check for an update for your graphics card : Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

I think I heard somewhere that the dell drivers are sometimes not good.

When I either play some games, or do alot of heavy multi-tasking, my computer used to BSOD. It did this 3 times, and now when I do the same things that did cause the BSOD, it instantly restarts, and starts to boot up again.
The 3 times that it did BSOD, it created minidumps, and in all 3 of these, there is one file that comes up in them all, its the "NT Kernel & System", "ntoskrnl.exe".

I have attatched the minidumps to this post.

System spec:
CPU: i5 2500 (stock clocks + stock heatsink)

mobo: ASUS PZ77
ram: 2x 4GB Crossair Vengence

This problem has been going on for about 2 weeks now. It began while I was playing a game, and the PC simply froze. I was unable to reboot, so I shut the computer down and tried to turn it back on. I got a "1 long" beep code. I tried replacing the RAM with some older sticks I had, same error.

The next day I replaced the Mobo. It booted to POST but reported that it could not detect my hard-drive. I fiddled with the thing for about 4 hours without getting a proper boot. Finally I put everythingback the way it was (old motherboard and all) and somehow it booted. From then, I've been getting seemingly random errors.

Sometimes the computer will simply reboot. Most of the time it was not POST properly after a reboot and I must keep turning it on/off before I can get windows to load.

Sometimes the computer locks up, and I have to do the same as above.

Sometimes I get an error on POST about resetting the CPU freq. My CPU Freq is and always has been at default.

I've seen several errors on my BSODs: IRQ not less than, page fault in non paged error, etc. My event log is full of 4609 errors.

I thought it might be an issue with overheating, so I put in two new 180mm fans. It still has the same problems.

I put in some old ram. That seemed to do the trick, but today it has started rebooting yet again.

I thought maybe some user setting were corrupted or some such, so I completely deleted my user account and started another one. No dice.

Note: I highly doubt it is a software problem or even a driver problem: sometimes the computer will not even turn on. After a "reboot" it won't fully reboot and I'll turn it off. I'll either get a long beep or simply a black screen with all fans running.

I basically need to find out which hardware needs replacing.
