Q: random BSOD's/game freezes. certain hardware/graphic card related

Hi.

PC is 3/4 years old with new PSU and HDD in use.
PC was fine after new hardware install.

Had my graphics card OCed for a while (1 year) and had no problems with gaming until about 1 month ago
to which i started getting freezes playing World of warcraft.

I have stopped OCing but this hasnt effected anything.
These freezees still occur in game only but BSOD's happen randomly no matter what.

These BSOD's have only just started.

I haven't ran any tests yet as i wanted to ask for your opinion first with my crash result.

Updated my ATI drivers but had no effect.

Thanks in advance.

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.)

Good night

I'm having a trouble with my computer. As you can see with my system specs, I have a graphic card nVidia GeForce GTX 750, which has worked properly in some cases but in others something strange is happening.

Recently I was playing FIFA 14 and suddenly a BSOD pop up, with a message "whea_uncorrectable_error".
Before I used to use Google Chrome as my default browser, but when I watched a video from YouTube in Chrome the same BSOD pop up.
I think the problem is related with the graphic card, but when I play other things, for example, Assassin's Creed or League of Legends, the problem never emerged.
Another interesting thing is that I'm unable to install linux in my computer, because it reboots automatically after some minutes, and based on what I researched is related also with the incompatibility from linux (fedora, ubuntu) with my graphic card.

I attached my recent BSOD dump files.

I hope I was clear
Thanks in advance.

So I've got a new computer about six months ago and I've recently started to notice that I'm getting a lot of bsods lately.This is my machine: Amd Athlon II X2 3.0, 4 gigs of RAM, 1TB hdd, Ati Radeon 5670 HD, running Windows 7 x64. I believe it was happening since the day I got the computer but it only happens when I'm watching video or play games so I didn't give it much thought because I mainly use computer for work and haven't done much playing or watching. Namely when I play video games (doesn't matter which ones, happens both with Dragon Age 2 or something as old as Diablo II) or watch video fairly often I get a gray screen with computer freezing up, sometimes the sound continues to work, and sometimes I get a buzzing noise. I never got a crash when doing work (I'm a music composer and most of the work I do is pretty hardware intensive, using software like Sonar x1 and Cubase, CPU and RAM being most important so I don't think that they are the cause.)

After I restart I get this: Problem signature:

Hello,

I've been getting blue screens while playing League of Legends and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (but not while playing Unepic). These are the three games I've been able to test. The crashes don't happen while not playing games (haven't tried any other heavy work, though).

First, only the games crash. It takes some time until they do. Before that, I can play without problem. When I attempt to reconnect or restart, the BSOD comes.

On the bottom of this post, you can find possibly related files and reports.

Solutions I've tried:
-I've installed the latest AMD graphics card driver (Catalyst Omega 14.12). Although, I'm not sure that this process was immaculate, since I'm not an expert.

-I've checked my motherboard's BIOS version, which turned out to be up to date.

-I've installed the latest motherboard chipset update.

-Since I had read something about this problem having the possiblity of being caused by RAM problems (rather than graphics card), I ran Windows 7 inbuilt memory diagnosis tool. It showed no negative results. But maybe it's not very reliable.

None of these worked so far.
Any ideas? Can you lead me step by step?

Hi Everyone,

I followed bsod posting instructions, but there was some problem to generate the system health report or maybe just I did it in the wrong way so I just attached the SysnativeFileCollectionApp.zip.

Here are some more details:

A few days ago, my laptop couldn't startup and kept showing a bsod msg related to atikmpag.sys. So I just googled and followed several instructions, but unfortunately nothing worked.

Laptop is Dell Vostro 3450 with Windows 7 SP1 64-bit.
Graphic Card is Intel HD 3000 and AMD Radeon 6650 (or something like that)

I've tried:
1. reinstall latest amd drivers both from dell or amd (and not just latest, also tried 13.9 13.12 14.4)
2. expand atikmpage.sy_ to atikmpag.sys
3. update bios
4. use leshcat's amd installer

I'm not sure if I used the app correctly since I couldn't startup to normal mode but only the safe mode without moving the atikmpag.sys or rename it.

I also tried bluescreenviewer and it showed three file in red which were atikmpag.sys dxgkrnl.sys and dxgmms1.sys

And then I also started driver verifier but nothing happened (and I deleted atikmpag.sys after)

I didn't check temperature or anything related to motherboard or several things I really couldn't understand.

PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME!! Rly don't know what to do now!!

Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone, I have a self-built PC running Windows 7 Home Premium. Specs are: 2.5GB Quad Core Intel CPU, 4GB of RAM and an Asus GeForce 7200.

I downloaded a program (sysfan I think it's called, I'm posting from a different computer), which showed that everything was fine apart from the GPU temperature which, over the evening I ran the program stayed at around 60 degrees C, everything else was between 20 & 30 degrees.

I was thinking of upgrading to this:

My only real concern is whether my PSU will be able to handle it, I have a 390 watt Seasonic PSU.

Thanks for any help.

A:Random BSOD's Not sure if it's Hardware or Software related

Seasonic is a good power supply brand but we're not going to recommend you run any pci-e card on anything less then a 550w.

However 60c isn't enough to cause blue screens. While it's too hot for an idle , it's not enough to be causing the problem.

Hello all, I am new here but am so far extremely impressed with the members know how and courtesy in helping others.

For quite some time now I have been experiencing blue screen crashes randomly.

I have little programs installed and most regularly use the computer for playing WarThunder and occasionally Battlefield 4. Although sometimes the BSOD occurs just browsing the web, or even at idle! There is no frequency attached to the issue with sometimes hours or sometimes days passing without incident.

It is also worth mentioning that quite often after a crash, my machine will just go into an infinite boot loop without ever reaching POST or BIOS. This continues until I cut the power and restart, in which case it may do the same again an indefinite amount of times, or just spring into life as normal.

I have not tried any overclocking and temperature monitoring software shows perfectly acceptable readings throughout.

The crashes got so bad about 6 months ago that I gave up using the machine, I would now like to get to the bottom of the issue so have started the fault finding process.

I will attach the minidump files as far back as they go (as I said, some months now).

If there is any further resources I could share to help anyone who knows what they are looking for I would be more than happy.

Lastly, I am semi proficient in computing and my machine is home built. I accept switching out hardware may be needed.

Hi,
I've had frequent computer freezes (Screen frozen, no response, only solution is to use the power button to turn my computer off) and some BSOD's. (the freezing is more frequent, a few times a week)

My processor is relatively new (6 months, I'd say), but I can't tell if problems started with that installation. No other new hardware.

Ran memtest86 (v.4.3.7) 5 passes, no errors found.

I noticed that my driver ntsokrnl.exe, at the origin of 4 of my BSOD's, doesn't seem to be up to date, but I don't know how to solve this. I have had issues from the start with windows update and several updates were skipped, either by the update tool because they failed, either manually by me after their installation crashed my computer and forced me to revert to previous states. I have no pending updates, but I know that my update history is a hole-filled mess.

I think that my drivers are all up to date. At least I updated all the drivers that I could think of right from the start and a recent check hasn't found new ones.

Thanks for your help,
Eddie

Hi,


With the help of a friend, I recently bought a bunch of new parts, built a new computer and plugged my old HDD on it. I used Kaktussoft tutorial on Paragon Adaptive Restore to get my HDD to be properly recognised by my mobo (thank you Kaktussoft) and keep my old install of windows for as long as I could. I then had a PSU problem (I tried using my old PSU and it turned out it was just not up to the task so I had to buy a new one, many thanks for ICIT2LOL for trying to help in another thread).


Unfortunately I ran into some more trouble. Since the hardware upgrade, the computer sometimes freezes in an unexpected fashion. It seems random, and once frozen, the computer will not respond to any input. In fact, my optical mouse and my keyboard stop receiving power if I hit any key. The computer can freeze when running a game, while using firefox, watching a video, at startup… It doesn't appear to be tied to any particular activity. It can run a game for hours and then freeze suddenly or just freeze after fifteen minutes of using firefox. I once left my antivirus software running for a scan and it froze somewhere in the middle of it. I never tried to let it run without doing anything. Once frozen, I have to do a hard reboot to stop it. It does not generate a BSOD as far as I know (I checked the event viewer for error messages). I do not know if minidumps are enabled on my computer but if there's no BSOD, I don't think windows could generate a .dmp... am I correct ?

A:Random freezes with new hardware (no BSOD)

From your other thread.

New hardware : Crash/Reboot on Win 7 WEI test and games

Did you do a clean install of Windows 7 and activate it after changing the motherboard?

Did you install the new chipset ect using the new motherboard CD?
Did you install all the needed new drivers for your new hardware?
Did you install your program fresh again after replacing the motherboard and installing Windows 7?

The odds of replacing the motherboard and other new hardware and just swapping the hard drive with all the old stuff from the other system and working properly is slim to none.

Hi all!

I've been annoyed by BSOD quite a while now. Don't know exactly what caused it, but I suspect it has something to do with the graphics card (ATI).

To help in diagnosis I'll describe more about what happened. My computer shuts down (power failure, not normal shutdown) or BSOD randomly off and on, but this symptom usually goes away after using the computer for a while. If I leave the computer powered off for some time, the problem comes back again. Sometimes when I press the power button, the computer doesn't power on immediately, but sometime later it powers on automatically. Judging from these it seems the power's got some problem, but I'm not sure.

I suspect it's graphics card related because ATI drivers' name shows up in some (but not all) dump file (some network drivers also).

Please find attached the DM Log.

Thanks in advance!

I need some help to identify what is causing random BSOD's. During a game of Dying Light my computer crashed and restarted. Ever since I get random BSOD's in game, in browser or just simple in idle mode. I have already swapped the HDD, reinstalled Win 7 and swapped memory. So MB, GPU and PSU are potentially the source of problems.

I have attached the log.

Windows sometimes advises me to install the videocard drivers after a BSOD, they are however already installated. Updating, reinstalling etc. didn't change anything. (this is the main reason why I suspect the GPU to be the bad guy)

Hello everyone. I have tried the basics but I have had no luck. I have been getting frequent BSODs on my computer and I'm having trouble pinpointing the exact cause.

A few times I noticed windows notifying me of a graphics driver recovery, and once or twice after that I experienced a BSOD. Other than that, I'm usually just browsing the web and one will spontaneously happen.

I have updated to the latest NVIDIA drivers for my graphics card as well as installed all Windows updates. I've been using BlueScreenView to look at specific drivers that are causing the problems. The only one I see over and over again is ntoskrnl.exe. I did some research and I believe that means it's hardware/driver related.

I have attached the last four dump files in hope that someone could please help me out. Let me know if anything else is needed that would be helpful in diagnosing this issue.

So basically over the past several weeks, I've been getting BSOD's about 1-4 times per day. It does seem to be completely random, I've had crashes during games, sitting at desktop, I even got a BSOD one time when I attempted turning off my computer via start menu. Last week I completely re-installed windows, wiped C drive, and re-installed all drivers, and the problem still persists. I have 2 identical nvidia 560 ti cards, and I get the BSOD's with both of them. I've tried nearly every driver available on the nvidia website for 500 series, including the one released for 560 ti compatibility.

Three BSOD's are the ones that show up:
0x7E - (also giving the program: dxgmms1) - google gave me directx as the problem
0x3B - something related to graphics
0x1E - Hardware Incompatibility.

Rarely, I get another blue screen related to memory and ntfs file system, but I think I fixed that recently by correcting some corrupted files on my second hard drive.
Attatched is the zip containing Perfmom file and the folder generated by the exe from the instructions page.

Hello all,

I encounter BSODs seemingly randomly, but suspect the graphics card, as there was some correlation to crashing when using youtube or gaming (not so much when playing videos e.g. with vlc). Though recently crashes are more random.
There have not been any crashes on shut down or start up.
After the crash a prompt to start normally amongst other options appears, and can restart successfully - it does not freeze upon BSOD.

A friend also suggested an IRQ conflict. In Device Manager there is a yellow triangle next to an "unknown device" which remains after all external devices have been removed from the laptop.
From Device Manager>view resources by type:
(ISA) 0x00000004 (04) Unknown device
The second graphics card according to the System Info tool is the "LogMeIn Mirror Driver". I do not use LogMeIn any more, and did have trouble uninstalling at the time. I am not sure if any other programs use this.

The BSOD states an "uncorrectable hardware error". Have run a chkdsk in the past with no issues apparent.

CPU: AMD Turion(tm) X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile ZM-84

I went ahead and did a little bit of research on your setup there. Looks like your only running 512mb of RAM with S3 Unichrome integrated graphics. So to put it bluntly your system is not up to the task of playing games at a decent level. All hope is not lost. However it does require you open up your wallet. For the video card I recommend you go with this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814141038

It's too bad you are stuck with an AGP slot. That's pretty much the best bang for the buck i can find for an AGP video card.

I would also suggest buying another stick of RAM if you can afford to. If you want to do that as well i will need detailed specs on the RAM itself to see if i can find a match for it. Otherwise you will want to go with a new set of matched ram.

Just buying the video card will show a HUGE improvement in gaming. On-board graphics REALLY suck. Right now you have an on-board S3 unichrome gpu that uses your system memory (that's not good). Graphics cards have their own on-board memory. So by using a video card instead of on-board video you will be freeing up 64mbs of system memory as well as a graphics processor that can handle just about anything there is out there right now.

can any one help mw with my ps2, it is ejecting the games but the disc tray is not going back into the console (only about 1/3 rd of the way) anybody got any advice to what may be obstructing the disc tray?
the tray is now stuck fully ejected.

cheers
 

A:ps2 problem - hardware related ie-dvd/game loader

Look on the bottom of your PS2 and check what the model number is. The 30001 series (the first series) were junk and I heard that a lot of them had faulty trays. I believe that if you have that model of PS2 that Sony will fix it for free if you call their 1-800 number.

If it's not that model, then you might just have to buy another PS2. It's hard to find anyone who fixes them, and usually the cost to have them repaired outweighs the cost of getting a new system (espeically with the holiday deals you can get this time of year!)

Out of curiosity, by any chance Can I be able to upgrade my dedicated graphic card of my notebook latitude 3470? it came with i7 6th gen, 8GB RAM, and GT 920M which is dedicated.. I want to upgrade my GPU to GTX 960? Please Help...
I know it is not a wise choice but lack of funds forcing me. Thank you :)

A:graphic card related

Not to that level, no.  There is a version of that system that was sold with an nVidia GT920m CPU, but as with all systems like this, it doesn't have a separate video card - the GPU is a permanent part of the mainboard, so the entire board including CPU has to be replaced.
Also bear in mind that you will need to change the heatsink assembly (the one for the Intel GPU won't fit the nVidia board and vice-versa) and may need a new power adapter (65W will power the Intel GPU but you'll want 90 or 130W for the nVIdia) -- so add another $30 for the heatsink and $40 for the adapter to the $200 or so the board will cost for a total just in parts of about $260-275.

Hello everyone,

I just recently signed up for this website hoping to recieve answers and suggestions, and I thank you now for reading and helping me.

heres my story;
my computer was running WoW very well during TBC release.. and I decided to get a new graphic card to further improve my game play. And so I got the ATI Radeon X1300 Series. So after about 6 months it was working very well. Then I got a virus on msn from my friend and i was stupid to click on it.. so I couldnt find a anti virus that could delete it not even my own Norton. So I Decided to just do a simple system reboot.
Everything was fine.. reinstalled my graphic card properly and all that. And then I was suddenly getting errors where I needed to download newer drivers which I did.. but no dice.. What the errors did was shut down my monitor screen while my computer was still on and yes i have changed the settings to never turn off and it still does... and So i thought maybe its just my graphic card. I decided to replace it with a NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS Card. its working fine.. but after about 15-20 mins my comp just automatically reboots or game crashes... but it doesnt have the monitor stand by thing anymore...
but instead i get this error that says "the nv4_disp display driver has stopped working normally...." I was reading some forums and this guy had the same problem he said that his mother board had a built in graph card or vid card or w.e... I was wondering how I could tell if I have a built in ...

Hello, I've joined this community hopefully to get this problem fixed...
A few weeks ago this problem started when my PC freezes every couple of minutes, no matter what I do (whether its surfing the web, playing games or even when I dont touch anything)
seems to me like its not a problem of RAM memory overload, since it happens even when nothing sirious runs on the PC, but maybe I'm mistaken... this is also the reason why I changed the operating system from Windows XP to Windows 7, I've formatted and upgraded the OS, but still the problem consists.

since my motherboard is old, it only supports 2 GB of RAM, so upgrading RAM is impossible without buying a new motherboard, which I guess basiclly means changing the entire computer.
anyway, im currently running the computer in safe mode with networking, only with "core" drivers, and the freezing doesn't happen in this mode.
I also tried literlly cleaning the computer from dust, and also ran MemTest86 and didnt find anything unusual.

so, any ideas what might be the problem?
maybe I should cancel some hardware drivers that might have been damaged and interfere with the system running smoothly?

I'm trying to get a friend's PC up to snuff. He inherited it and it was full of spyware, viruses, and malware so much to a point that it was almost impossible to do anything. It was taking over the entire internet connection to a point that no one could get online from any computer on the network. Anyway I decided it was time to reformat the computer which fixed almost all the problems. One problem that wasn't fixed was random hanging anywhere from 1s to 30 minutes after Windows XP boots. I'm assuming this means it was hardware related since the problem exists. It was a clean uneventful as far as I could tell.

stantley and pugmug were nice enough to recommend some software to ID the specs. I'll summarize the results unless somebody thinks more detail could help them identify the problem. Anyone want to suggest where I might want to start in the way of swapping out hardware? I'm thinking I will upgrade his memory anyway so that should be easy to detect if that's the problem. Nothing feels excessively hot and all the fans are all working.

Hello,
I recently changed my PCs Hardware and reinstalled Windows 10 and all the Software I need.
On the previous build (and a secondary Windows 10 build here) I use the same Software-Versions and everything runs fine.
Since I am using this new PC I am getting unregular BSODs. Sometimes when I am playing a game, sometimes when I am browsing, sometimes when I am doing nothing.
I checked my Harddisks with chkdsk, my RAM with memtest86+, my CPU is not overclocked and tested with Prime95. Even though it seems to be a hardware problem, no errors were found.
I then used Driver Verifier to check the drivers which did not cause BSODs. So I deactivated verifier again.
Then I wanted to run Verifier overnight, but it promptly caused BSODs on every startup. The only change I made was installing trust Zone VPN Client (which is also running on the other windows 10 machines). Which therefor may be the cause for the new(!) Blue Screens. But the first one occured without that software.

Now I am unsure how to solve this problem (or what the cause of it really is).
I tried to follow the instructions and create a health report, but the Resource and Performance Monitor is stuck at "Collecting Data for 60 seconds..." for about two hours now.
I have zipped and added four additional BSOD memory dumps in a second zip file. The ones from the 17th and the 19th were without Driver Verifier running. The two from the 18th are dumps from my tests with Driver Verifier.
