I'm getting blue-screened to death

Q: I'm getting blue-screened to death

I've been getting the blue screen of death several times a week, if not several times a day, for several months now. It almost always comes when I am surfing the internet, especially--but not particularly--when I'm accessing video sites such as Hulu or MSN Video, although I don't even need to be playing something in such sites--if the window's even up, it will likely give a blue screen somewhere in the next hour. Lately, though, just running a browser can cause it to blues creen.

My blue screen says at the top something to the effect of: driver-not-less-or-equal; I've never been fast enough to catch the specific numbers, but I can try if they're needed.

I've tested this in the latest versions of: IE, FF, Opera, Flock, and Safari and all equally cause a blue screen crash.

I have an Acer E380 8 month old system with:
Vista SP1
AM2 Socket MB (I believe, and don't know the exact model)
Athlon 64 X2 4400+ @ 2.31 GHz
NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (I now just installed a NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT and it did not remedy anything)
Realtek High Definition audio
2GB DDR2 RAM
320 GB Western Digital HD
Came with 250W PSU (I put in a 750W PSU to try some upgrades with the new graphics card, but somehow that combination gave more blue screens so I took both of them out)
I have about 6 USBs hooked up drawing various amounts of power and I use a Wacom tablet as my main mouse/input, but the problem started way before that...so don't know if that means anything.

I also have an old tvtuner card plugged into a PCI slot that was installed once but since uninstalled--but I haven't removed it because for whatever odd reason removing it makes my PC slower. (Thank you Vista.)

I might be pulling at strings, but this problem might have been less before I installed the Vista service pack 1, but then again, I've had blue screens for a long time.

From that exhaustive list...can you think of anything I might do to remedy this problem before I end up frying my system with all these blue screens??? ANY help would be appreciated--and yes, I'm still under warranty, but I'd rather do everything I can to fix this myself rather than send it in and lose 3 weeks worth of work.

One more thing: I've swapped PSU's several times for testing purposes; could I have somehow tugged my MB power connector out of whack to cause this blue screen problem? Probably a stupid question, but I'm willing to consider anything at this point.

Thanks for your help!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi dgal. . .

Welcome... to your first thread in the TSF Vista Support Forum.

I see that you have been a member since last November, but this is your first thread and post. Sorry it had to be under a BSOD watch. Let's see if we can locate the cause.

I need some items and I have a few things for you as well. There is a zip file attached to this post containing a batch file named minidump-msinfo32.bat. Please download it and extract it to your desktop. Right-click on the desktop batch file icon and select Run as Administrator. The black "DOS" command screen will appear and scroll followed by the smaller Vista screen while msinfo32 runs. Give it a few minutes, then go to your documents folder where there should be a new folder named TSF_08-21-08 containing the dump files (with names similar to Mini082008-01.dmp), a text file and the msinfo32 NFO file. Zip the entire folder up and attach to your next post.

In the interim, please check WERCON - Windows Problem Reports and Solutions as it usually does contain information on the system crashes that may prove to be helpful.
START | type wercon.exe into the start search box | right-click on wercon.exe under programs above | run as admin | view Problems to Check & Problem History.

Also check the Device Manager for any red/yellow flags.
START | type dev man into the start search box | right-click on Device Manager up top under programs | run as admin

Regards. . .

A:Blue Screened

Hi, some reasons for Blue Screens
New hardware - software installed.
Device driver - Video driver - corrupted - faulty.
Faulty Ram - Overheating - Dying hard drive etc.
======
Let us have some Pc specifications.
Check and post
TSG System Information Utility - found here.
http://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe
======
Post the Minidump files
Create a new folder on the desktop and call it dumpfiles [or something similar]

Look in c:\windows\minidump
Copy the last 4 minidump files to that folder.
Close the folder and right click on it and select Send To Compressed [zipped] Folder.
Windows will compress the file and then save the new zipped file in the same location.

Use the 'Manage attachments' in the 'Go Advanced' reply window below to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

Hi,

I'm new to this but I figured I'd give this a try. This is a repost of my earlier post I did last week. no replies .

I have an Acer Aspire 5110 laptop and recently I've been getting the bluescreen when starting the laptop. Sometimes it pops up after I login, sometimes on the password screen. The bluescreen usually has HSFHWAZL.SYS (i think). After this, windows usually does a disk check. Sometimes it finds nothing, other times it truncates like 15-20 files.

Currently I'm running WindowsXP Media Center Edition.

I downloaded HijackThis and here's the log file.

If I'm missing anything, please let me know. Thanks!

About 2 months ago I bought a Hp G70-460US Laptop that I've been running Vista Home Premium on and it was working perfectly until earlier today when I started to get random blue screens of death. At first I thought it was just a random crash from running too many programs, but it started to blue screen ever more frequently. Earlier I restored it back to 2 weeks prior but I was unable to run programs efficiently and it still blue screened, so I backed-up all that was important onto an Ipod and did a complete system restore to the factory settings, which took about an hour, and at which point it blue screened at startup before even getting to the administrator log-in screen. I've now attempted to boot it into safe mode, however it no longer even recognized that windows is even installed and asks for it to be, and when booted regularly, it just shows a black screen. I'm fairly certain it may be a driver issue, however seeing as I can no longer boot the computer to get the blue screen, it's difficult to check what the problem actually is now. I've never had this problem before and I'm not much of a computer wiz, so I'm not sure what I should be doing to fix it. Does anyone have prior knowledge or possibly some insight on how to fix this problem? It would be greatly appreciated. I haven't given much information other than the problem itself, so if some is needed, just let me know. Also I'm new to this forum, so if this thread is in the wrong place, I apologize.

A:Vista Blue Screened

Hello Werty789,
Welcome to Vista Forums!

I think that there was a little glitch that turned big (sounds weird i know).
But since you backed up all of your files thats super. I would suggest you do a clean installation of your version of vista. This way, you can have a fresh start and hopefully your BSOD will be gone. Also, make sure you allow windows to update itself after installation so it downloads and installs all the proper updates.

Let us know how it goes,
Ben

Please help! I am new to this forum. I tried to follow a tread on this but it got so confussing. Does someone have a step by step reply? Issue is Blue screen "A driver has overrun a stack-based buffer". Its on my teen son's PC (need I say more). System has been down for months got tierd of working on it till now. The begining:
1) System starts and said it had two spywares running at same time. After 4 mins the system would freeze, not giveing much time to do anything
2) I started in safe mode and removed my Nortons since I could not this "other" spyware. After a reboot windows said it removed a few malice files. Forgot the the files for this "other" spyware" but it had a tool bar on IE and ended with (4.1?)
3) System worked fine. However as I tried to install a new antivirus I found that neither of my CD/ DVD drives would work (device manger, would not let me update driver). I even moved the drives to the other IDE controller but got the same thing. After two days I found someone who gave me step by step insrtuctions to remove two reg files. Got the drives to work.
4) Now I have this blue screen message. I have removed one by one each hardware item and I still get the problem.

Please help me! John

Hi,

I was just using my PC when it disconnected from the internet. Other devices were still connected so I figured the issue must be with my PC, closed my programs and then tried to restart my PC.

This is when it blue screened with a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE error. Once the blue screen reached 100% it hung for a good five minutes before I decided to try a hard reset and now it's stuck on the loading wheel and won't boot up. I'm scared to try another restart but I'm not sure where to go from here.

Hi, recently installed a new cpu motherboard and graphics card. Reinstalled windows, and now the machine is crashing occasionally. It crashes anywhere between instant on start up or 40 minutes into browsing. I uploaded the zip file per your BSOD posting instructions.

I've done a little researching on my own and I think it may have to do with the Realtek audio controller conflicting with my nvidia graphics card in some way. Although since the computer is blue screening I'm hoping your diagnoses might help me figure out if that is actually the problem.

For the second time in the last few months We've had a partial network outage that was traced to a blue screened machine. This time, the BSOD referenced storport.sys.  The issue being caused is that the switch gets flooded with unknown traffic and that
goes as far as the uplinked switch that gets taken down.
I can't find anything that stands out in a wireshark trace, but as soon as that machine is unplugged, everything is fixed.  What could possibly be causing this and how can it be prevented?

I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed on my computer and had it up to date on all of the Windows updates. I also have Windows Vista installed on another drive on the computer.
I was using it earlier and it suddenly blue screened at random. I was just browsing Reddit or something when it happened.
Once it blue screened I couldn't get it to work again. The error code it gave me was 0x000000e for both my Windows 7 install and Vista install (both were working fine before this blue screen).
I got on my laptop and downloaded the system repair and put it on a disc. I ran it on my desktop (the computer having issues) and it repaired the boot issues. However, on the Windows 7 install I can get to the login screen and log in now, but it will spend about a minute or two sitting at the 'Preparing your desktop' message before coming up with a screen with nothing but a teal background and in the bottom right it says this:

Windows 7
Build 7600
This copy of Windows is not genuine

It is a legitimate copy and has worked fine for a year before this happened. The background looks like this minus the taskbar and icons: http://www.guidebookgallery.org/pics...win2000pro.png

The Vista install seems to work fine now though. However, I cannot access the drive that has Windows 7 installed on it from Vista anymore. If I try opening it, it will say 'Access Denied'.
Also, the drive letter for Windows 7 changed after running the repair. It was originally drive letter G but it has been changed to F.

Hello everyone I'm new to the board and I apologize for not having the time to read through all of the beginning tutorials and scanning to see if this has already been addressed on the site.

I went into the registry and deleted a file that basically blue screened my computer. I'm at a point now where I can get to the command prompt however I believe the startup repair from bitlocker is overriding my boot up disk.

Window XP Professional: when starting, interupted by blue screen with error message Fat 32 D:volume (something) 1DOB-3241 verifying files and service and then system checks out OK and starts. Since loading Windows Live and Live security have had very slow response until all of it is loaded (sometimes up to 45 minutes before I can get on Internet Explorer).
I think my D drive is too full--cannot complete defrag since there is only 9% free space on disk. C drive is nearly empty. I think I have to move some of these files to C but I don't know how. Does anyone know if these problems are connected to error message at start-up or are they separate issues? Had broadband service check over weekend and they said its not their problem. I'm not too techy but fast learner if someone has patience to help....Thanks.
 

A:Blue-screened error @ startup: D: volume service Fat32

To move the files right click on them and select "copy", then make a folder on your C drive and in that folder right click "paste"

Once the files have been moved, you can go back to the D drive and delete them. Don't delete all of the files on D, just the ones you put there.

You should not store any of your files on the D drive, this is most likely a restore partition and should not be used by you.

I am trying to sell my Dell XPS L401X (XPS 14) that I bought in December of 2010 but I have encountered a serious problem with it. I loaded the computer from factory settings as it had blue screen and refused to start up without startup repair and dell datasafe backup or w/e that program is called. I loaded it up, installed Google Chrome, cleared my history on IE, downloaded MSE, the latest nvidia drivers and java 7 64 and deleted all those and emptied the recycle bin once done installing those. I shut down the computer to install updates and get a blue screen as soon as it passes the startup screen. Every time I attempt to launch using startup repair it just opens up another window with a black screen and the option of startup repair and normal repair, never actually going to startup repair, just continually refreshing every time I select startup repair. Please help I need a permanent fix ASAP as I don't want my buyer to experience these issues and send it back.

Proceed through the steps in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot and see if that resolves the problem.

You may also consider Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 since the system is no longer under warranty anyway. Just make sure you can read the key on the sticker prior to doing those steps.

I was using my computer as usual and after I came back after eating, I saw a completely black screen. I turned my computer off and as it booted back up it blue screened, telling me there was a problem with memory management.
I turned it back off and fully depowered my motherboard, popped my ram in and out, just in case.
I turned it back on and nothing showed up on my monitor. My mouse and keyboard lit up and I got the regular system beeps. I plugged my HDMI cable into my motherboard with the same results. The cable works and the port on my monitor works as well.

Hi all, my son's Dell Optiplex all-in-one blue screened once. It then gave options and my son selected reboot. It would then not boot up at all (power is present as screen will come on in HDMI mode) . Bizarrely, by experimenting we realised that it will boot up ONLY if you go through this process every time:
 - remove both RAM
 - power up (it gives the beep to say memory not found)
 - power off and return one of the memory and power on
 - it briefly powers on and then powers off (we worked out that it does this as recognises it has a change in memory)
 - power off and add the other memory
 - again, briefly powers on but turns off. Power on again and voila all OK and boots Windows
However, if you then power down, it will not power back up unless you go through the above again.
Does anyone have any ideas as I am stumped with this and I need to get it working again for my son's school work. Thank you in advance.

In need of serious help.*
To begin, I am stupid and haven't backed up any of my files so for now a windows reinstall is out of the question. (unless it's completely necessary) okay, so the problem: I was using my computer as normal. Then while on Google Chrome, it started getting slow and said "not responding" this happens all the time, to everyone so I waited and then the dreaded Blue screen of death appeared. Didn't get a look at what it said because it shut down almost immediately. After that it loaded as normal? Which is weird, I think. But got stuck after startup on the black screen of death. All I have is a cursor. Can't do ctrl+alt+del, can't load any of the safe modes. When I go on startup repair, it says "no restore points" on system restore and "could not detect a problem" on system repair or whatever it's called. There must be something to fix this?! :/ I live in hope that the whole system doesn't need to be wiped clean because as I said, I stupidly haven"t backed up my files.*

Can anyone help?? Please?

Hello everyone.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L450D-13X computer for the kids, and for the price it's a good laptop. Have had no issues with it until two weeks ago when the screen froze for the boys whilst playing a game and downloading a program from the net. Had to do a force shutdown and since then we have a BSoD on every boot-up. This is what we have tried:

On 'Starting Windows' we are given an option of either 'Launch Startup Repair' which ends up as BSoD or 'Start Windows Normally' which reverts back to the 'Starting Windows' option list.
Any attempt to enter 'Safe Mode' results in BSoD.
Attempting to boot an ISO of the Windows Recovery Disk on a USB key (we did highlight it and promote it to the top) results in BSoD. Borrowing a proper Window 7 installation DVD and highlighting this as an option results in BSoD.

In fact, the only option we used that threw up something different was using advanced boot options. On one of these options we got the Blue Screen of Death with the following information:

Unmountable_Boot_Volume
Disable Bios Memory Options such as caching/shadowing

Tech info

Stop: 0x000000ED (0xFFFFFA80023C2CDO 0xFFFFFFFFC0000185 0x0000000000000000 0x0000000000000000)

I don't mind erasing the hard drive and starting again, there's nothing on it that's critical. I'd very, very much appreciate a steer on this. Checked the web for stuff and nothing seems to assist in any other options. I am not particularly tech literate but can follow instructions.

It detected 411 problems within the registry. Then I used Uniblue SpyEraser. It detected 23 problems. It also detected a Rvbot Trojan but cannot be deleted. At last I used the RegRun Platinum Trial Version to do a virus scan. It detected 2 types of trojan. Rvhosts.exe and wuexplorer.exe during windows startup.

I set up a computer for a friend around 2 months ago. It gave me no problems whatsoever until suddenly. Before i get into any major details, I would like to state that the computer posts, and i can easily get into the bios which eleminates several hardware issues.

The computer wont load windows though, before it boots it gives me the option to start in safe mode. No matter what option I try it either freezes and gives me a black screen, or it says that a system32 file could not be loaded. My first thought was that it was the hard drive. I thought i would run the windows XP disc, load the windows recovery consul and then run Check Disc. Unfortunately I could not even do that. Whenever I try to load the windows XP disc i get past where it asks to hit F6 if i want to load a RAID or SCSI controller and then freezes (on the blue screen) when it says, "Setup is loading files (Windows Executive)..."

I had an extra Hard drive that i know works so i tried that hard drive instead, but i still get the same problem. (only it does not try to load windows.) I also used a different copy of windows XP and it still freezes.
