Blue screen and suddenly shutdown

Q: Blue screen and suddenly shutdown

Hello, I'm new member at here.

One of my user laptop is having problems.
Main cause is, blue screen pop up and suddenly shutdown.
Please refer my minidump files.
The best things is to uninstall the OS but I don't want to do that since the user do not want to loose his data and settings,etc.
Do anyone have suggestions?

Thanks and regards,

Preferred Solution: Blue screen and suddenly shutdown

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: Blue screen and suddenly shutdown

The BSOD is caused by USBport.sys the USB driver. If you can boot into Safe Mode with networking and download the chipset driver for this particular machine from it's manufactures support/download drivers site.

My computer is suddenly getting frequent blue screens that reads "Irql_not _less_or equal" and saying how physical memory dump is complete. I really don't know what is the cause of the this and why I am suddenly getting this screen a lot. It has never happened before and recently it has been popping up alot. I did manage to write down some info on what the blue screen said and here are some things it had: "ip_fw.sys" "0x000000D1" "F89C9C2B".What should I do? I'd really appreciate a step by step solution or something to stop this from happening again.

A:Windows suddenly restarting with a blue screen

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:

* 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:

* 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.

My PC crashes abruptly and unexpectedly (there is no blue screen, the screen just goes black). This occurs more and more often and makes the PC difficult to use.
It usually happens when the hard disk works intensely, e.g. a full scan by Microsoft Security Essentials (which is never completed).
It is often related to high fan activity so perhaps overheating is a problem. However, it has also happened when fan is running slowly.
It is sometimes related to stress on the video card: entering new scenes in games has caused shut downs.
The computer is a custom built PC from December 2012
Windows 7 Professional, SP1, 64-bit (Norwegian language version)
Processor: AMD FX-8320 Eight-Core, 3.51 GHz

Graphics Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB GDDR5
Speccy results published:
I have run SysnativeBSODCollectionApp.exe, results are attached (had to kill the process as it took more than 5 minutes with “Waiting for SystemInfo”).
I will be happy to provide any other info.
Would be very grateful for any assistance!

A:Windows 7 suddenly crashes (no blue screen)

Are the fans and lights still on when the system "crashes?" Or does the system completely lose power?
You will need to run a couple of hardware diagnostics www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html Be sure to run all the tests on that page.
In addition, I would suggest you test your power supply https://www.sysnative.com/forums/hardware-tutorials/4061-test-power-supply-unit-psu.html
You may wish to try this hardware stripdown procedure too www.carrona.org/strpdown.html
Apart from that, we don't have much to do software-wise — I'm 99% certain it's a hardware problem. You could try updating the BIOS, though it may not be the best idea as the computer could restart suddenly halfway through the update.

Hey, can anyone help me out here? My operating system is Vista. My computer suddenly goes into a blue screen and says that there is something critical in my system, and will shut down to prevent data loss. So I let it shut down, I reboot in safe mode, and I find that Windows Security tells me that the entire Security System is turned off. I tried turning it back on but an error message pops up. I used Tune Up 2008, and did a system restore. I rebooted and it said that the system restore was successful, but then the next day, the same thing happened. What am I supposed to do?

February 2- 8:49 pm = I am scanning my computer right now, with my original ESET NOD 32 Smart Security, then Spybot Search and Destroy, then Windows Defender. I will post the results as a "found infection" or "did not find infection".

hello, I have a one-month-old Acer Aspire 1410 11.6" notebook running on Windows 7 64-bit home premium. Twice now, it has encountered a sudden error and shut down improperly.I have run Bullguard (which found 3 infected files, but only ADMT cookes) and Spybot S&D, which found nothing. I also scanned with Microsoft Security Essentials, which found nothing.However, in looking into it more closely, I found that it is associated with Blue screen, which according to many chat forums and googling, etc, I've looked at, is a potentially serious problem.I've just scanned and saved a log with Hijackthis. Could someone have a look at it for me, please?EDIT: HJT log removed, used only in BC forums dealing with malware ~ Hamluis.

Hi Grant. . .

The BCC = Buchcheck code = 0x000000d1 (0xa49ffff6, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x8dee8575). 0xd1 = DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
and indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable (or bad) memory at a time when it should not have. I need some system info from you as well as the dumps. {Please do the following:

Download the attached zip file and extract the batch and exe file to your desktop. Go to your desktop, right-click on the batch file and select run as administrator. You will see the black "DOS" screen appear and scroll and it will provide you with the status of the script. Then the AutoRuns viewer screen will appear - let it scan (look on bottom-left for status - "scanning..."). When AutoRuns is finished, the screen will close. The batch job will take ~ 5 minutes to run.

The output will be in a new folder found within your documents folder named TSF_Vista_Support. Zip the contents of the new folder up and attach to your next post.

Any ? - please let me know.

Regards. . .

A:Blue Screen then shutdown

I'm having a problem with my wife's brand-new PC with Vista. The blue error screen appears during all shutdowns and restarts. During shutdowns, after the blue screen appears, I have to hold down the power button to turn off the machine. For restarts, sometimes the computer restarts after displaying the blue screen and sometimes I have to hold down the power button to turn off the computer and then press it again to start up.

When I boot up in Safe Mode, the problem does NOT occur, so that means some application runs at startup that is not shutting down properly. I went through MsConfig and looked at the Startup programs. I unchecked the first 6 of the 12 programs, restarted (so the changes would take effect), and then restarted again (to see if the problem occurred). I still saw the blue screen, so that eliminated those startup programs as the cause. I eliminated the remaining startup programs the same way and then did the same for all the items listed under Services in MsConfig. Still no luck.

What else could be run during startup that's not run in Safe mode? Vista doesn't seem to have a step-by-step confirmation option for startup, and there is no .dbg file produced (as far as I can tell), so I'm at a loss to determine the cause of the problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:Blue Screen on Shutdown

My computer bluescreens on shutdown only, probably 75% of the time. The error message is: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. This does not happen on a restart. When I go to shut down, sometimes it does, but usually it just hangs as windows is closing for a couple of minute & then displays a blue screen. I know the error indicates a driver issue, but how can I find out which one? It's done this since I built it. There is nothing in the event log to indicate a problem.

ok well heres the problem.

recently, two computers at our office started having problems with shutting down. the computer would go through the shutdown process and everything seems fine until the very last second before the power cuts, it blue screens with

followed by the stop code

STOP: 0X0000000A (0x000000B0, 0X00000002, 0X00000000, 0X805E33D)

both systems are running win xp sp2.
did some research on this particular stop code, came up with a few suggestions along with microsoft's suggestions.

i tried:
last known good configuration
reseating the ram
disabling all the startup apps

none of which worked. i was going to try to repair the os using the xp install cd. but before i did i wanted to see what other people though about it.

lastly, no new hardware was added to the systems recently, so i think the culprit is some software the guys from higher up pushed out remotely.

any ideas?

I am running WinXP SP2 on 3 computers: a Dell9100, an IBM T40 and a Dell Optiplex. Automatic WinXP updates is turned on for all three. All 3 have recently developed the same problem. In particular, when they are shut down, the shut down process seems to hang just before the monitor would "go dark". Thus that "other" blue screen persists until the computer is manually turned off. This occurs about 50% of the time on any machine. Since all are set up for automatic updates and the problem started on all machines within a day or so, I suspect that a recent update to WinXP is the problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

this is happening a few times a day and only getting worse. I would rate my internet smartness at 1...so not good. Anyway here is what i keep getting. I'll be right in the middle of something (i only use my computer for basic stuff, email, facebook, etc. just general simple things. I have searched for a few weeks on fixing this but i dont have the slightest clue to this stuff. I did install a trial version of norton which didn't help this situation and did do the trouble shooting in safe mode but came up clueless. So what happens: I'll be just on the internet, then I get the blue screen that says A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. (the only thing i've installed was the recommended windows updates but this was going on before that) Then it says if problems continue disable or remove any newly installed hardware (not aware of any) or software, disable BI0S memory options such as caching or shadowing (wouldn't know what that was or where to find it) and it shuts down on me. Heres what comes up when i restart the computer.

A:Blue Screen on Shutdown

Hello xtiantech23 and welcome to TSF!

The attached dump is a 1000007e: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M pointing to Microsoft system file and is likely not the true cause of the crash. Given that you mentioned you BSOD on shutdown, it's likely a 3rd party driver issue.

I'd recommend enabling Driver Verifier to see if we can snag a 3rd party driver culprit:

Hey there everyone. So I like to think of myself as pretty computer savvy, and have managed to solve all of my other computer hiccups without too much trouble. Not this one however.

About 4 weeks ago, I went to shut down my laptop, and it blue-screened right after the "Shutting Down" image had been up for a bit. It said something about usbhub.sys. I have been looking all over the internet, and tried pretty much all of the fixes without any luck. It's not a life threatening issues since I can just hard shutdown, but it does make it a pain to do updates. I hadn't started doing anything any differently that I had, which is why it surprised me.

Once it blue-screens, it restarts the computer. If I do a hard shutdown, it sometimes goes and does the whole disk check, but not always.

Thanks in advance!

For the second time now, whenever I go to shut down my laptop this blue screen shows up for no more than 2 seconds..so I wasn't able to read everything on it, but I tried to scan it quickly and all I could see was:
"Windows encountered a problem and needs to shut down to prevent damage".
Then after that, it goes away and my laptop shuts down normally.

But what is this, and why does it keep showing up?..before turning off my laptop I closed all my programs and everything, nothing was open. Is this something I should be worried about?
I scan my laptop regularly too..I'm just a little bit worried, is there a problem with my laptop?

Can you guys please help me out?
I don't think I've ever had this before..

There are a number of knkow issues with this problem on Microsoft's website. (Knowledge Base) I'm not quoting specifics as I don't know what issue applies to you.You Can search for Win32k.sys on the microsoft website to do some further research. Generally speaking, you want to update all the drivers on your system,and run windows update. The most likely cause is a poorly written driver, although several other issues could cause the same problem but are out of scope for this support.This is kind of like a math problem in that you have many problems that affect Win32k.sys and generally speaking, one solution.The solution being updated drivers and Windows Updates.Let us know what happens after you perform those tasks, and I'll address this further if necessary.Good Luck.PS. For the Tech Heads, Win32k.sys seems to be a service or protocol related to allowing services/processes to create GUI Items. One example from ATI isthe Catalyst Control Center from ATI which can cause this error:http://support.ati.com/ics/support/default...uestionID=26900Another is here from Microsoft:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834450It is possible tha a virus causing this, But I'm doubting that due to the Stop Screen error, but here is the Virus information:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294728

Greetings techguys.com'ers!

I am having issues with my laptop.
ASUS F5 Entertainment system, about 3 years old.

I get blue screen of death after shutting down. It went through a phase of restarting when I told it to shut down, I put this down to over heating. However the problem persisted and I was conscious of continuously holding down the power button and damaging my C drive. Looking on the internet and found that through control panel stuff I could cancel automatic restart on critical error. This then caused my laptop to go through logging off, shutting down screen, then the monitor darkened then around 50% of the time, JUST before it shuts down I get the blue screen of death:


Then the techincal information it gives is:

0x00000001 (0xcff30023, 0x000000ff, 0x0000000b, 0xcff30023)

Only things of note recently include the addition of a newer version of Norton (I know) and spybot search and destroy before Norton, however these were added in an attempt to find out if a virus was causing the restarting problem!
A friend has suggested system restore for about a month ago (This has been about 6/7 weeks now. Talk about putting problems off!)

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot!

A:Blue screen just before shutdown

Here is what microsoft says about it.

The Stop 0xD1 message indicates that the system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. Drivers that have used improper addresses typically cause this error.

Interpreting the Message
This Stop message has four parameters:

Memory referenced.
IRQL at time of reference.
Type of access (0x00000000 = read operation, 0x00000001 = write operation).
Address that referenced memory.
Resolving the Problem
For additional troubleshooting suggestions that apply to all Stop errors, see "Stop Message Checklist" later in this appendix.

Stop 0xD1 messages can occur after installing faulty drivers or system services. If a driver is listed by name, disable, remove, or roll back that driver to confirm that this resolves the error. If so, contact the manufacturer about a possible update. Using updated software is especially important for backup programs, multimedia applications, antivirus scanners, DVD playback, and CD mastering tools.

updated and comaptiable drivers are very important when running XP. Check your hardware with the HCL www.microsoft.com/hcl If you hardware is not on the list it does not mean it won't work it just means it hasn't been tested by Microsoft and they won't Guarantee it to be compatible. If it not on the list check the manufacturer's website fo an up to date XP driver, if they don't have one you may ... Read more

I've XP Home Media Center edition on my Dell 9100 PC.

During the last year I've been getting occasional blue screen on shutdown. It never causes an error or apparent problem on restart and I cannot predict when the blue screen will occur next.

Note: I use firefox instead of IE, because over a year ago for no apparent reason IE ceased to work and caused my PC in to a hard lock up. After all the reinstalls, etc, I just gave up and went over to firefox, but I lost microsoft updates in the process. These blue screens did not start during this same time period, but could be indirectly related...I do not know.

Excerpted error message info is pasted below; please help!

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

16 memory dumps from 23 Oct to 09 Nov 2010 (2? weeks)

Most likely this is due to gdrv.sys - a driver component of your Gigabyte Tools program (I'm guessing the ET6 program). Please uninstall the program - then to be sure, check in C:\Windows\System32\drivers to make sure that gdrv.sys is gone. If not, try renaming it to gdrv.BAK

If possible, could you please zip up a copy of that file and upload it with your next post. That way we'll be able to have a closer look at it to see if there's any other info that'll tell us where it belongs.

Keep an eye on Catalyst Control Center as there have been issues with older installations.
Please don't use registry repair/tweaking utilities as they can cause more problems than they are worth.

FWIW - nearly all of the BSOD's blame this file, so it's most likely the cause of your BSOD's. I think that it's installed from the Windows Update site when you're installing Windows - rather than being installed with the Gigabyte utilties, but that's just a guess on my part as I don't have a Gigabyte mobo to test it on.

I have a fairly fast computer i guess and i do use torrent fairly frequently to download games, movies, and music.Recently while playing a game, gta 3 san andreas... the game suddenly crashed for apparently no reason. Afterwards all actions (such as using windows media player, opening folders, going onilne, etc.) suddenly became a lot slower. It didnt seem to be malware or something because no actual change happened to the computer other than the slowness. I had ran virus scans with Ad aware with Lavasoft and Super Anti Spyware with no results within scanning for hours. i had ran freeware AML registry cleaner but the computer would randomly reboot before the scan could complete with a blue screen appearing right before the screen booted. After turning off automatic restart for system failure i got a good look at the screen and it read:
Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
I had also tried rebooting with "Last known good configuration but still had the same problems
I still have 90gb free space with 250gb used and usually have had no virus problems other than a malware issue that was resolved by my sister (who is away now and cannot help anymore). Disk Defragmentation is done so that should also not be a problem.

Help would be very appreciated

A:Computer performance suddenly drastically slower + get blue screen

Hello Ebb1611

Things to try
1. Test the RAM
2. Update your video drivers

1. Test RAM
If you have more than one stick of RAM (256MB or more) swap them over or take one out and try again with only stick #1. If it does not help or makes things worse swap the sticks and try again with only stick #2. Running with one stick at a time will identify if you have a bad stick. Try moving the RAM to a different slot as well.

You can put either of these free programs on a floppy and test the RAM. Let them run for hours to do many passes if you can

memtest86 http://www.memtest86.com/

Windows Memory Diagnostic http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp

Memtest on CD ( this is a bootable CD and can be used when you cannot access an operating system)

Use your CD burner to write it onto a CD as an ISO image
Test with only one stick of RAM installed at a time

2. Video drivers
Go to the manufacturer of the video card`s site and look for updated drivers for your card.

Not quite sure what's happening. Every time I shut down Vista I get a blue screen. Happens on restart as well. It seems to be after Vista has completely shutdown, as I can still run any installation that has to restart to finish the install. I'm new to Vista(I actually didn't want to get it, but the girlfriend did so we got Vista) so I'm not sure where I can find the error log. I recently built the machine, and it has been doing this since I built it. Any help would be appreciated.

Seems this is a new problem that a lot of people are having. The best advice from other boards seems to be remove the ATI drivers completely (go to ATI site for a complete removal tool) then install an older driver.
Sorry I cant be more help, if a solution or fix comes up I will be sure to let you know!!

At least you know it is noty something you have done, but apparently a major conflict in drivers.
