Q: SRTSP.SYS causes a BSOD when a CD is in the drive. ?

SRTSP.SYS is from Norton antivirus and I only get the Blue screen when a Blank disk is in the drive...

Preferred Solution: SRTSP.SYS causes a BSOD when a CD is in the drive. ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Twice now I've received a blue screen of death on Startup. I've looked in Event Manager, and the only possibility I see is SRTSP failing to load. Though it does it anytime I boot, and the Blue Screen only appears now and then (first on the 18th, now today).

It seems to only happen when i boot up. It may be a driver needing updated, but I'm not sure which one to do. I appreciate any help. I've ran a memory test provided by HP, and nothing seemed wrong. I think Symantac may be the problem, but I'm not sure.

I would post my minidumps but they are too big.

Both BSODs seem different

Hiya

I've just finished building my new computer and I'm getting BSOD errors when first formatting a hard drive and secondly (after a successful format) installing a game on it.

My boot up SSD drive seems to be fine, it's just my other hard drive.

64bit Windows 7 Home premium. Full version I bought a a few days ago. The whole computer is new. If you need any further information, let me no.

8GB RAM. Intel Core i5 2500k CPU. Radeon 7850 graphics. 120ish SSD. 1Tb hard drive. Asus P8Z68-V Pro gen3 motherboard.

Edit: having just seen a notice, I've updated the post to contain two attachments. Or atleast I think I have :\

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

If you are overclocking STOP

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

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

The procedure:





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



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





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

I have taken ownership of the folders in the other partion to get my pictures and the like. But I cant use any of my programs ....

Been having a lot of BSOD recently. Every time I try to burn a disc, I come back to it and this has happened now with two different drives (just upgraded to a blu ray burner). The computer has also been locking up often within 15 minutes of starting up and requires a hard reset. I imagine if I left it be during those times, it'd ultimately result in another BSOD.

I'll try uploading the information as per instructions, but I manually wrote down the message BSOD...

"Stop: 0x0000000F4 (0x000000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA8010F95100, 0xFFFFFA8010F958E0, 0xFFFFF800037DD460)"

A:BSOD when using DVD drive

Welcome bonjourmate.

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump. You first search them manually in the default path,
C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump.

If that location is empty, Follow the tutorial:
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Wait for the next crash, and then post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Anyway, a stop 0xF4 is storage related. For it, what you are to do initially is:
Update your SSD's Firmware (not needed if you are not using a SSD)
Re-seat the sata and power. (for all drives including Optical and internal disks)
Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Let us know the results.

Hi, im keep getting the BSOD when i use my cd drive to access a cd. I have had a look for the mini dump files in c:\windows\minidump and my computer doesnt seem to be writing any.

ive tried to get a debugger but without the files its a bit of a non starter!

Ive reinstalled the driver for the cd drive (Hitachi HDT725032VLA) and it is now ok under the hardware properties but still crashes my system when i try to use it!

Then i changed another new SATA dvd-drive, but still sometimes it still give me BSOD. I thought maybe is the power cable fault, then i switch another power cable, still the same. I can't find the root cause of this problem, please help.

Since the recent November update I have been getting BSOD once or twice a day. What follows is the on screen notification:

Driver IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL(dxgnms1.sys)

What puzzles me most (not that I know much about this anyway) is that when I restart it is not the (C) Drive which has the OS which is scanned and repaired, it is the (D) Drive with apps / programs, docs and media. This has not happened before, is it unusual? Has it anything to do with the fact that I have just made full use of the new MOVE option to transfer apps to (D)? I understand that it likely to be a driver issue and thought drivers would be on (C)?

Can someone explain this to me before I try to apply the Forum instructions for reporting BSOD?

Hi all, I've been having this weird problem and this site looked like a good place to ask about it because of the support I've seen. So wooooo first post~!
Anyway, whenever I unplug one certain flash drive (a Kingston DataTraveller SE9) my laptop bluescreens with the error "SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED". I can't figure out why for the life of me! I did, however, figure out that the flash drive is recognized as a local disk and not a removable one. This issue only applies to my laptop, that's it; the drive works perfectly fine on any other computer. I can still read and write to it no problem. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

A:Unplugging Certain USB Drive Causes BSOD

Some USB flash drives act like a hard drive which Windows lists as local disk instead of removable. You will notice that when you delete anything on the USB drive labeled local the deleted items go to the recycle bin. On a USB flash drive labeled removable the items are not sent to the recycle bin.
 
Download USBdeview. Run the program Highlight any listing for Kingston DataTravler and press the red X to remove. Reboot the computer and attach the Kingston again. Do you get the error?

Been having these random pc crashes and BSOD , These have happen after i installed a 3tb HDD. I am not too sure if its a PSU issue where as being not enough or a Motherboard issue..... the reason i say motherboard issue is because when i was installing the new 3tb hard drive i had to take out one of my Radeon 7970 cards , in doing so i think i may of pulled out the plastic pci-e port of the board as i never pushed the release lever down enough , the port did seem to go back in ok. But after doing this my problems started to happen....but only when i have both cards in cross fire , single usage is fine , no crashes , but as soon as the second is put into crossfire mode i get crashes , The event viewer gives me a bugcheck code of 278 everytime...so i really dont know weather it is a power supply problem or a motherboard ( due to my carelessness ) below are my specs and the dump zip and perfmon zip.

Hi.

I've been having loads of PC problems recently and its getting me down. Just as I thought I had it stable I noticed this.

I keep getting Bugcode_USB_Driver blue screen. But it only seems to happen overnight when i'm not there to see if anything is causing it. But if its happening while the PC isn't really being used how on earth is it happening?

The only thing running is O&O Defrag. One of my external drives (1TB Seagate) is highly fragmented and it seems like it will take hours to complete, but it never manages to finish because while leaving it running I wake up to a BSOD. I manage to have it running a few hours a day but no BSOD occurs, just when I check it after a night of sleep!

Could this be the problem? My external drive is going dodgy?

I've tried uninstalling all usb drivers and changed the usb port its using. And just to eliminate things, a system overclock would not cause this right? Its not running too hot and has been stable for months before now.

This is incredibly frustrating and would like some advice and help.
Thanks

XP recognizes new device, starts to install, then blue screen hits. Have set new drive to Cable Select (as old one was). Have also pulled old drive and rebooted without it in PC to free up resources, then rebooted again with new drive. Nothing works.

Have XP Home on this PC. Any help would be much appreciated.

I had 'Magicdisc' installed and it was working fine until a few days ago.I started getting blue screens due to the file 'mcdbus.sys' so i tried uninstalling 'MagicDisc' (which wasnt easy) and got rid of it using a command line to uninstall it. I wasn't sure if it uninstalled completely so I used 'CCleaner' and deleted faulty registeries. Then I installed 'Daemon Tools Lite' as I have to have a virtual drive and during installation, as soon as it said 'setting up virtual drive' my system gave a blue screen, this time due to the file 'dtsoftbus01.sys' and so I uninstalled the Daemon tools lite after logging into safe mode.

I really need a virtual drive software, but so far I've figured out that as soon as I install a program that creates virtual drive, my system starts giving blue screens. The system works fine otherwise.

Please help !!

Hi there,

Many thanks in advance for taking a look at my situation. I think I'm starting to circle the drain and with my limited skill set, I think it's time to call in the cavalry.

Sudden BSODs have be plaguing me the last few days. Activities during the BSODs are pretty much browsing the web and dealing with files on the hard drive. I also do some work in Photoshop, geotag photos with the Microsoft tool, and play various video files.

The PC has started to lag, with the CPU jumping to 100% when it didn't "need" to do this previously.

I followed the directions for memory dumps and page file sizes, waited for another BSOD, ran the SF diagnostic tool, and attached a zipped file here. Incidentally, I peeked in some of the text files generated by the tool and noticed that EventSys.txt shows entries like:

hello all,

I am getting random freezes that will cause me to reboot and sometimes the BIOS will not detect the HDD after the reboot, until I reboot a couple more times to be able to login normally.

Sometimes it would lock up, and i would be able to move my mouse but no programs can be accessible and I'd have to shut it down manually or it would freeze and immediately reboot with a flash of BSOD. It is mostly during playing video games but have also had it happened during regular surfing and trying to view Event manager would sometimes lock up as well.

before this event, I was installing new RAM, de-dusted my computer with compressed air. I thought this would be problems with the RAM so I played around with BIOS settings until i could fix it, performed a BIOS update but still freezes. So, I put my old RAM back and still same problem.

Ordered new RAM, installed it, reset CMOS, reset BIOS to default, did disk check and came back with 0 bad sectors, confirmed that my SATA cable is secured, installed gpu drivers. It is still freezing. my OS drive is 1.6 years old now.

Event viewer shows Critical and says the computer didnt properly shut down. I have suspicions that it is my HDD dying but would be odd to begin to die just right after cleaning the dust out of my computer..

I insert the drive into ANY of my 4 usb ports, the computer plays the sound indicating it recognizes a new piece of hardware, the driver install popup appears in the system tray, and then the computer goes to BSOD.

When I reboot the computer (with the drive still inserted), it appears in Device Manager as Kingston 8GB etc., but does not ever appear in Disk Management (i.e. I can't see it to initialize or format it) and it does not ever appear in My Computer.

XP x64 BSOD Writing to Mapped Drive? [SOLVED]

I've been tracking this problem down for months on end but can't seem to find a cause, let alone a resolution.

I'm running XP x64 on a 2-processor Dell Workstation with a few mapped drives. I've been getting lots of blue screens, often in clumps. I'll get 2 one Tuesday, be fine for a week, and then get 6 the next Tuesday.

The minidump files include a bunch of different bug check strings and codes and a variety of "caused by" drivers. The bug check codes include 0x1000007E, 0xC2, 0x9C, 0x50, 0x3B, and others. I've attached a .zip of the last 10 minidumps. By far, the most common "caused by" is ntoskrnl.exe.

The recurring theme about these crashes is that they all seem to happen when I'm writing files to a mapped drive. It's hardly deterministic too. I wrote a batch script that writes a small text file to any one of my network drives, sleeps for a half second, and does it again. Sometimes, the script will write 100 times before crashing. Sometimes, it get through 8 iterations. I should point out that this is caused by any network drive, and it makes no difference whether or not the server is running Linux or Windows.

I've tried replacing the network card in the PC, thinking perhaps there was something funky going on there, to no avail. I've also done multi-day passes (Friday evening to Monday morning a few times) with Memtest86 with no ... Read more

A:XP x64 BSOD Writing to Mapped Drive?

I read the minidumps in your first Zip file. Two were unreadable due to corruption. The other three are helpful in finding a cause for your issues.

One error is 0x0000007E: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
A system thread generated an exception which the error handler did not catch. There are numerous individual causes for this problem, including hardware incompatibility, a faulty device driver or system service, or some software issues.

The other two errors are 0x000000C2: BAD_POOL_CALLER
A kernel-mode process or driver incorrectly attempted to perform memory operations. Typically, a faulty driver or buggy software causes this.

All three cite the same driver as causing your issues: Prot6Flt.sys. It took some digging to find out what it is because there is almost nothing online concerning this driver but it belongs to your Panda security software.

Guys, my computer has just started giving me occasional BSODs within the past three weeks or so. The problems seem to come when my external hard drive is being accessed. That hard drive contains mostly media. The first couple of crashes happened while recording/capturing video to that hard drive from a game, and I assumed it was just something caused by the capturing mechanism in the game. Since then it has happened while browsing or listening to my MP3 collection in iTunes and Zune and other benign media-related activities like that.

I am running 32-bit Windows 7 Ultimate, completely up to date from Windows Update. The hard drive is a recertified Seagate 1.5TB drive I got from Woot in December. In my attempts to fix this, I have updated every driver I could think to update, including video card and sound card, all to no avail. I've scanned the hard drive with the built-in error-checking tool, and it came up completely clean.

I'm attaching my zipped up minidump folder so maybe someone smarter than me can interpret it. Just let me know anything else you need. Please help me!

Hey there. I noticed you're running AVG which is the worst bsod offender going. Completely uninstall that then give it a go. Enjoy.

That will fix things. If on the very slight chance it doesn't, look into updating this driver:

Remove any virtual driver software,like daemon tools,alcohol120%.....

Download http://duplexsecure.com/download/SPTDinst-v179-x86.exe run it and click uninstall to remove the sptd from your system. The minidump analysis points sptd for your computer crash\bsod.

I rebooted the PC, and now every time i try to download a file from the internet that is bigger than a couple of MB, it crashes to a BSOD. The hard drive has started to click slightly when i am downloading/installing files/programs.

Hello all,I've got a problem.
Yesterday night,while I was sitting on my laptop,a BSOD appeared and the computer restarted.After the comp restarted,I could reach till the "Windows is Starting page" and then another BSOD and the comp again restarted and so on.

When I went to startup repair,there was no Operating system to repair.It told me to "Load Drivers".
Then I tried using my win7 cd and on startup when I booted it up,at the after the "Custom Install" page where you choose on which partition to install to,and even there,there were no partitions and it told me to "Load mass storage drivers".

I searched around a bit and found out that it is something to do with SATA harddrives and IDE's and Bios's.

Since then I've tried nearly everything but to no avail.
I am not a n00b and I've solved many problems myself but this time I'm at a total loss

Now the thing is,I had 4 drives.
A Music
B Movies
C Windows 7
E Setups misc etc
The C drive was 169 gb and everything is in it.
But it seems like the A and B partitions have been added into E.
My E partition was around 50 gb,A was 70 and B was around 200.
All of those have been added up to give me 331 GB. The files from partition E are still there,but the files from A and B are not there.

Also see this
http://img508.imageshack.us/img508/8108/48364352.png
After going into this drive,you can see that now it shows only 50 gb (which was the size of the original E drive). The Music and Movies partition is missing/hidden.

My guess is that they still exist,but are hidden.
Heck,even in Windows 7 after doing a clean install,I could see my C and E drive but couldnt see my A and B ones.
So I went into Administrative tools and then into Disk Management and the partition was still there and I only had to assign a drive letter to them and then they appeared on My Computer.
I think its because by default you can only see the C,D,E,F drives and you have to 'unhide' or re-assign the other drive letters.
So any help about this :S?

Also now you must have seen the sata storage controller and hard drive model,so can someone point me to a driver please!?!

I've been scouring the internet for a solution to my trouble for some time now, and have found a lot of useful information here, but none quite relevant to my specific problem. I'll try and make this short and sweet, whilst posting as much relevant info as I can here.

My dilemma is this....I have an Intel dual-core CPU running Win7 Pro x64, and it runs great. chkdsk /r revealed 0 issues with the drive. I recently acquired a Core i3 machine, and want to drop my drive into it. Past experience tells me I should have 0 problems doing this, so long as I keep the hardware similar and CPU vendor the same. Both machines are Lenovo with Intel processors. When I plug my drive into the new i3 box, it loads the Windows splash screen and BSOD with "unmountable boot volume". Easy enough, I'll boot it off USB-SATA adapter, and bypass the SATA on the motherboard (no RAID on either PC) and let Windows detect all the hardware on the new PC first. Same result doing that too. OK, so I'll try booting off USB-SATA adapter on my original WORKING machine, but got the same result. I've tried the startup repair disc to no avail. It's like my drive will only boot off the onboard SATA on my working machine, and it IS a basic disc, not dynamic. Just for kicks, I cloned the drive onto a WD 250GB Blue, but get the same results anyway I cut it. At this point it looks like a fresh install... Read more

Last week I installed my new Hitachi Deskstar 1.5TB SATA 6.0 Gb/s hard drive. Windows recognized it right away and everything went smoothly as I transferred files over. A day later I started getting generic DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD's, but they only happened right after I woke up the computer from Sleep Mode. Before I installed the HD my computer was absolutely perfect with no problems so this made me think it was a driver issue. Updated all drivers with Driver Genius, but still BSOD after waking up computer (they are random, it doesn't happen after every wake).

My motherboard has two SATA III 6.0Gb/s ports. The first is occupied by my Crucial C300 SSD booting Win7 Ultimate x64, and the other with my new Hitachi. These are controlled by a Marvell 6.0Gb/s driver. I also have two SATA 3.0gb/s devices connected: a WD Black 1TB HD and an ASUS Optical drive. I'm starting to think it has something to do with either the Marvell Controller, or how these three hard drives are configured, but honestly I have no idea at this point.

A:BSOD error can i just put in a hard drive that has xp ?

If you swap in a drive with a pre-installed OS from a PC "with different hardware" the drivers etc will not match and you will likely get lots of error messages, if not a BSOD or failed boot. You need to fix the problem and or re-install the operating system.

We have a dell Inspiron 9300. We keep getting the BSOD with the system 32 error. We don't have the OS disc, just the disc from dell. So we know we are going to have to set the computer back to factory settings. However, we want to get our pictures off of the hard drive before we do this.
We were thinking of using an enclosure to get the pictures off of the hard drive. Has anyone ever used one before? Also, how do we know what kind of hard drive we have ( PATA/EIDE..etc) to know which enclosure will work with the hard drive? Any help would be greatly appreciated! We want to save our wedding and honeymoon pictures!!!
 

A:Help backing up hard drive BSOD

there is a device out now that will allow you to slave either one using usb port - it is a USB 2.0 TO SATA/IDE adaptor - it works with ide, sata, and laptop hard drives - i use one almost daily and i love it - you can get it online - we carry them in the store for 30 bucks - cool thing is you never have to shut your system down to slave in the hard drive - for me that is a big thing because i may slave in 5 a day sometimes- anyway - that is one route you can go

Hi all,
 
  I have this hard drive that has the OS on it, and it is blue screening and returning to boot options menu. it is running off a custom gigabyte socket 775  main board via sata cable. i hooked it up into another computer and it appears to be a fine disk, albeit partitioned. does that mean that the OS is licensed for another board only?  i have the speccy and SIW screen shots of it if that helps.
 
 is there a BIOS setting that is preventing it from loading?
 
 while i had it hooked up to the other computer, i did a chkdsk /r on it and it said it needed to be dismounted..

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x64 ?
- the original installed OS on the system
- full retail version

- What is the age of system (hardware)? approx. 1 year, ssd drive new
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) clean install

I have recently (4 days ago)aquired a new Crucial 128Gb ssd drive and performed a clean installation of windows 7 64bit, since then i have been experiencing random BSODs (3 times so far)
All software is genuine. Have performed full malware and antivirus check. Results are clean.

Hello baobab. Welcome to Seven Forums.

Code:
BugCheck 50, {fffff81c0a30a8c0, 0, fffff880016e1c73, 5}

Probably caused by : Ntfs.sys ( Ntfs!NtfsFcbTableCompare+3 )

DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID: WIN7_DRIVER_FAULT

PROCESS_NAME: System
BCCode x50 generally refers to Faulty Ram.
RAM test with Memtest86+
Certain Bug Check Codes(BCCodes) or combination of BCCodes, are indicative of faulty RAM. Memtest86+ is an offline program specifically written to test RAM and uncover errors. Memtest86+ tries to verify that the RAM will accept and correctly retain arbitrary patterns of data written to it, and that there are no errors where different bits of memory interact, and there are no conflicts between memory addresses. Memtest86+ is open source, which means it is free to use.

Systems may have one or more sticks of RAM. These individual sticks are called DIMM. If Memtest86+ finds ANY errors, most likely, you have defective RAM. There are some cases where the DIMM slot, themselves, can be bad.

**Important!**
Should you receive any errors during the tests, stop the test. You will need to test each stick independently in each DIMM slot. Follow proper ESD Safety! Remove all but the first stick. Resume testing. If you receive(or dont) errors, note on a piece of paper that DIMM 1 failed(or passed) in Slot A1. Stop the test, move the stick to slot A2, resuming testing and taking notes in this manner, until all DIMMs have been tested in all DIMM sl... Read more

I have a laptop, HDD is formatted into two partitions. On my non windows partition, when i do file copying over to it, or renaming a certain one file it will hang and I will get a BSOD. I can only assume that the hard drive, has some bad sectors or whatever on it, where that partition is physically.

I tried defragging that partition, it just BSOD again. Is there a way I can get the operating system to know that this area is bad and avoid using it. Better yet, shouldnt the hard drive be reporting errors to the OS so it knows?

I only know how to run a chkdisk while logged into windows through the GUI but it says the hard drive is in use so I cant, so how do I run one before booting windows. Will that fix my problem?

I'm at my wit's end here.
So I've had a computer now, for about two years. I use it to do schoolwork, play tf2, post on a forum, nothing major.

But I swear, it's like whatever I use with the computer only has a short amount of life before failing.
I got the computer from a more savvy friend. He constructed it from a lot of spare parts, but I know he knew what he was doing, as he'd been working at a computer repair shop for multiple years at the time.
Only a few months after receiving the computer, I started having problems, used Google, and learned the problem was one of the RAM sticks had failed. I found the defective one, took it out, and thought nothing of it.

Since the two years have passed, I have had the power supply explode, installed a new fan since the computer ended up overheating, lost the use of a usb port, ended up losing usb devices any time I turned off the computer and left them attached, took out another ram stick, and now I'm getting hard disk problems.
Each time I started up my computer it's a crap shoot. When it's working, there's about a 1/4th of a chance it won't boot up, and I have to spend at least an hour getting it working again, by unplugging everything but the keyboard, or enabling bios settings, or using chkdsk.
Speaking of chkdsk, the damn thing is detecting tons of errors constantly. No matter how many times it fixes it, it comes up with new ones the next time.

Right now I've got very little money. Fortunately I won a 70 dollar ex... Read more

A:I get a BSOD, despite replacing the hard drive

Hello Plec, welcome to SF!

Looks like you have not been lucky with this system. No offence but it also looks like your friend that built it, was not that savvy... or should have told what the risks are in the way he apparently did the build. We know about Murphy's here but this sounds as a bit too much.

It is really hard to give you good advice on the info you gave. Your story is clear enough but we need detailed technical spec's of ALL components to be able to suggest anything....

Some advice offhand... if you yourself are not into computer electronics/parts... then don't add anything to it until you are sure of what you are doing....You wouldn't want a faulty PSU to burn your new HDD.
