Q: Any game closes unexpectedly + SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION BSOD

Hello,Whenever I play for exemple, Dota 2 or CSGO, the game closes in an instant, and I can only see the desktop, with no error message. Right now, I played Dota 2 for 2 minutes and it gave me BSOD System service expection. I have litteraly done everything; From changing the video driver to an old one and adding -autoconfig -dx11, to reinstalling windows 7, 8.1 and now 10. I also cleared CMOS.I also added a crash dump from Dota2 -> http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=44084955785821623364I have no idea what to do next.SPECS:Motherboard: AsRock Z77 PRO4Video Card: Nvidia GTX 760PRoc : Intel i5 3570k8GB RAM DDR31SSD and 1HDDCORSAIR 600WThanks 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.)


Hello all,
First, thank you for taking the time to read this. I am currently having trouble with BSOD's and cannot seem to figure out the problem. My rig is about a year old now and had a BSOD problem before last summer and it was with memory turned out that one of my mem slots isn't working (I dont for sure, but memtest turned out ok after several runs in other memory slots). didn't have any trouble till about a month ago and cant seem to figure it out. the crashes seem to occur at random and usually happen while playing a game.

I've attached the dump and system files as per the BSOD posting instructions.
If more informantion is need, please let me know. I feel pretty savy with a computer, but there is always more to learn. Any help with information to solve this problem on my own for next time would be greatly apperciated.

Hi, I've never had any issues like this with my PC, but whenever I play this particular game 'Life is Strange', upon clicking 'exit game' this BSOD appears, and only then. Other games run fine, and this game itself runs fine, it only happens upon exiting.

The error: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (win32kbase.sys)

My system:
i7 3770k
GTX 980 Ti
16GB Corsair Vengeance
Windows 10 Pro (CLEAN install, not an upgrade)
Asus Rampage V Maximus

NONE of my components are overclocked, and are all running very cool.

Things I've tried:
- Clean install of nvidia graphics drivers.
- Unplugging all devices beside mouse and keyboard.

I've memtest and had no errors with my memory. Again, these BSOD's ARE NOT random, they happen ONLY upon exit of this particular game, and I can't figure out why.

Any suggestions are much appreciated, thank you.

...and I do not know why. I am running win2k pro with an AMD 2400+.

I get the pop up box that says internet explorer has encountered and error and needs to close. Sorry for the inconvinience. Then it wants to send an error report to microsoft. Well after sending about a hundred of those reports, I have gotten nothing in return. There is nothing that I know of that is common to all of the instances. No heavy scripts, or images, or anything like that. I have tried to reinstall, with no result. I have deleted cookies, temp internet files and ran virus scans and found nothing.

Hello, this problem only happens on my wife's side of the computer (i.e. under her username). Internet Explorer opens fine, then without warning, after varing amounts of time (not necessarily right away), it closes unexpectedly. No error message. This does not happen under my username. I have reinstalled Java, do I need to do that on both "sides"? Otherwise the laptop works fine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

eddie, I wish I could give you some insight. I got a new HP laptop with Vista installed. I've had this computer since April and it does the same thing several times a day.

A while after my computer starts, windows explorer closes unexpectedly. There is no error message. The screen just goes blank - no start menu bar, desktop icons, etc., just my wallpaper. Once I hit ctrl-alt-delete, and then run: explorer.exe, my icons and start menu appear again, but with no processes running in the system tray icon area (next to the clock). Explorer.exe doesn't seem to close again after this is done.This has just started today. There have been no changes to my system: no install/uninstalls.

Google SERP often get redirected... one redirect route that I was able to catch was admarketplace.com. I try to run GMER.exe like the "before you post" instructions state, but it just stops with error: Closed unexpectedly. One time I tried, it blue screened me and restarted my computer. Not sure if this is related, but I get java update popups constantly, even after I tell it to stop auto-checking for updates. Maybe java is just annoying...

IE Browser problem persists. Internet Explorer browser window unexpectedly closes within 20-30 seconds of opening one or more windows, especially for 15-30 minutes after computer is first booted up. Problem may then stop for hour or more, then may later reappear sporadically. Does not appear to affect websites such as cox.mail.com or online banking programs, or off-line applications (word, excel, etc.).

Related data entry problem also continues to persist most of time. While entering data on any website or scrolling mouse within website, the entry or mouse operation is interrupted. Must left-click mouse onto site to continue.

Doctor SpyWare and XoftSpy anti-spyware successfully blocked repeated infections by AURORA and PARTYPOKER, but do not appear to correct IE browser closing problem. Repeated anti-spyware scans show no infections. And McAfee VirusScan and McAfee Personal FireWall Plus show no virus infections.

Ever since upgrading to Windows 8.1 (with and without Update 1) from Windows 8, the File Explorer has new quirk in its behavior that drives me crazy. My computer is on a domain and has a mixture of DFS drives and the older network drives mounted to drive
letters. Whenever I leave File Explorer showing either a DFS or network drive, after a few minutes of inactivity, it will close. I then have to reopen it and find the folder again. If I switch away from the File Explorer to go to something else, many
times when I go to switch back to File Explorer only to find it has closed. This is really annoying. No error message, it just closes. The computers with Windows 7 and older don't do this. And Windows 8 did not do this. Both my desktop computer and
my Surface Pro, both 8.1 Update 1 do this. My servers are Windows 2008 R2.
Is there any reason for this? Or is there any registry hack or setting that controls this behavior?
Thanks, Carl

A:Windows 8.1 File Explorer unexpectedly closes when on a network drive.

We already use GPO, but from what you say, it may be worthwhile to check if we have any manually applied drive mapping. I'll give that a try.

I am facing an issue with a user where they are unable to keep a window of File Explorer open when on a network drive. It will stay open for a short period of time and then close.

When browsing on the local machine or  directly to the share via the UNC path the window will stay open.

Here is a link which shows the issue in which I am facing. But we are using Server 2012 as opposed to 2008 r2.

The fix which was highlighted on the above link seems to already be in place. Yet the issue is still occurring.

Is there any reason as to why this could be happening? There seems to be nothing been mentioned in Event Logs.

Windows Live Mail closes unexpectedly repeatedly without error message and one account disappeared?

I have multiple accounts being used for years on Windows Live Mail - Version 2009 - Build 14.0.8117.0416 on XP Pro SP3

Recently, Windows Live Mail closes unexpectedly repeatedly without error message
Then as I kept trying to figure out I noticed one account disappeared? I think that happened later.

I have the ENTIRE WL MAIL Log file.

To track why this was happening I went offline mode and it would not crash. So, I figured it was something to do with the Sync.

So I disabled the Auto Sync for every account I had and did manual syncs for one account at a time. Found the account that was causing this.

Its a hotmail account. I signed into Hotmail and all seems ok. I am posting the follow lines from the LOG, when I manually synched that account from WL Mail a few times.

I could try to trace back into the LOGS as to when this drama actually started originally, and post that and / or most of it. Let me know if someone can help dissect Windows Live Mail issues.
Found its due to Sync of one account, Error Log info posted. Wonder who can fix this?

I have been having difficulty for awhile (months). My computer started running slow and I was getting pop up ads. About 5 months ago the pop ups stopped (a friend deleted some program he found) but other symptoms persisted. I will note some details on my system, what is happening and what I have tried doing. Let me preface this by saying I am essentially a novice. I use my computer daily but have little understanding of the inner workings of such things which is why I selected Bleeping Computer to come to for help because all of the forum posts I read were so helpful. I have searched through many of the forums for symptoms similar to mine but none seem to match quite right.
I have a Lenovo computer, AMD Athlon Processor 1640B  2.70GHz, 2.00 GB RAM, 32-bit operating system, running Windows Vista Home Premium Copyright 2007.
Symptoms: Overall slow operations. Both online and even within my own programs like opening a file or searching documents. I do run a few things simultaneously but I didn't think it was a lot. I will typically have 2 or 3 internet explorer tabs open, one or two with email and a third for searching online with google etc. I may also have one or two word or excel documents open. I don't play games or use photoshop type of programs, just basic websites and simple files. Often when I click to open a Microsoft Word (or Excel)document Word will open but I will get an error message and the document itself won't open. This is easily remedied by c... Read more

The past several weeks however, Internet Explorer closes unexpectedly multiple times when I am online. Also, I cannot open PDF files and Adobe Reader will not reinstall. iTunes won't open, and pictures won't open when I double-click them.

No error messages have shown up...the programs simply just do not open. I have the latest version of iTunes, and I am unable to download any version of a PDF file reader, but I previously had Nuance.

I have NO CLUE what to do or how to begin trying to resolve this issue, and most of my work files are PDF so this is becoming a huge problem...please help.

Hello and welcome to TSF,
The first step would be to try a different browser and see if your online problems keeps happening. If you are a hardcore IE fan, see if there is an update for it. As far as your pictures and files are concerned, it might need a simple solution like Disk Defrag. Many people overlook this, but hey it works! You can also do a Disk Cleanup (also built into Windows) which clears some unnecessary junk.
Good Luck!

OK, this is what's going on...

This particular game doesn't require much out of my machine. I've ran this game 5-6 times over just to see and it still ran smoothly, so I know for fact it has nothing to do with hardware (especially because I can still run much more graphically/processor intensive games). Just getting that out of the way.

I have played this game, unchanged, many-a-time pretty much every day, then one day it simply quits working. No update to the game (it does not update automatically), no change whatsoever. It'll just open and immediately close before any kind of content, color, or image is loaded. The whole process of me attempting to run the game and it closing takes less than a second.

I've tried spamming the game to see if maybe a 1 in 100 shot will randomly open it. This didn't work.

I have removed all my firewalls and antivirus, just for sake of testing purposes. This didn't work. Yes, I rebooted.

I have absolutely completely uninstalled the game, then reinstalled it. Rebooted, and it didn't work.

I have tried running as Administrator, or even just disabling the UAC altogether. Rebooted, and it didn't work.

It's an online game. Windows Firewall is disabled, all my ports are open, nothing is justifying what's going on here.

The two previous Firewalls/Antivirus I had were McAfee and Avast.

I am on Windows 7.

A:Game closes immediately after opening

What game and what are you exact PC specs (make and model if its a big brand name, or make and model of motherboard, cpu, gpu, ram, harddrive, power supply including wattage, optical drives etc.)?

At the moment, all you are saying is a random game doesn't work on a undefined machine ... thats not a lot to work with

I purchased a new system over a month ago. Before buying SimCity 3000 Unlimited, I had encountered no problems. Now, as I try running this game and The Sims, they quit and it jumps back to the Windows environment. What should I do? I believe that if I completely uninstall SimCity 3000 Unlimited, the computer will run better, but there really is no reason why it should be cutting off game play and jumping back to the Windows environment, anyway. I'm really purturbed. Please someone explain why it keeps doing that. Thank you.

Hard to be certain with only the one minidump file.
What I am seeing is several very old driver components loading on your system.
XP old.

One I know to be related to creative labs devices (do you have a soundblaster audio card?)

The second is related to a old piece of pennacle studio software.

Neither of them are going to function properly with win 7, they are simply too old.
Anyhow it appears to be a driver fault crashing the win32k system file.
I can't be more specific with only the one partial dump file to go on.

When ever anyone gets any problem I always recommend running this as it's fast and easy.

Probably caused by : win32k.sys ( win32k!TimersProc+142 )

This happens at random times. I can be playing games or just browsing the web. Unsure of what to do. If you need anymore info let me know. It is more frequent when playing games, can happen every few hours. When playing games like COD:AW or other games that i guess require a lot of memory and power i get the BSOD more frequently. I was getting other what appeared to be NVidia driver bluescreens but since updating my drivers to 344.60 those seemed to have stopped. Now I keep getting the below.

I recently bought a Fujitsu lifebook (C2D 4GB RAM), but after a week of functioning properly it suddenly crashes on every attempt to launch any sort of application requiring more than the minimal amount of memory. IE and even the Control Panel, for example, cause a BSOD, yet minesweeper doesn't. I can't launch a system restore either, since that causes a BSOD as well.

Precise details vary from crash to crash, but the exception is always the same, a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION. This is an example of the details provided on one such occasion :

BCCode : 3b
BCP1 : 00000000C0000005
BCP2 : 0000000000000000

and attached is the compressed dmp file that corresponds to the above.

Hi. . .

The info you posted indicates that was the 7th BSOD on November 28.

The bugcheck - 0x3b (0xc0000005, 0x0, 0xfffffa6016bb9ee0, 0x0), no probable cause listed.

0x3b = SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION = an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code. The 1st parm inside the parenthesis 0xc0000005 is the exception = memory access violation.

Post-dump processing listed probable cause = rassstp.sys, the Microsoft RAS SSTP miniport call manager driver. But this IS NOT the cause of the crash.

I am guessing it has to be a driver that came with the MB since I haven't had time to install anything else. But, I have no idea which one. I'd be grateful for someone to look at the bug checks and point me in the right direction.

Hi. When I turned on my PC (Acer Aspire V3 17.3" b?rbar PC 571-32324G50Mnks) I got a message from my antivirussoftware.
It told me that my pc was infected by Adware generic5.SRC. It was in the folder called BrowserProtect in the folder called ProgramData. After a minute my PC gets this BSOD. It was written: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, and something about "tcpip.sys". My PC restarted. The same happened again and again. My pc got BSOD 5 minutes after it restarted. So it restarted again and again until I decided to put my PC in safemode. The warning from the antivirussoftware was pretty weird because I had downloaded the software last day, so I uninstalled the it, because I thought the problem was coming from the software. Then I deleted some files in BrowserProtect, the files that I deleted was last changed the day before the BSOD and the viruswarning, so I thought maybe I had deleted the virus. Well, when I turned of the safemode the pc got BSOD's again. It has been 15 BSOD's to now, and I can't use my PC because it restarts after 5 minutes (I'm writing this from another PC).

I downloaded a software called WhoCrashed. Here is a minidumpanalysis from it (in a wordfile).

I have only listed 2 of 15 BSODcrash-analysis. In 14 of them there was a problem with the driver called "tcpip.sys", and in only one of them there was problem in a driver called "afd.sys". There is one crashanalysis of each in the file.

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

For starters:

At work we start all repairs with a set of diagnostics. Often they find problems that weren't even expected. It's a waste of time to try to fix software on a system that has hardware problems.
Please try these free diagnostics for starters: Initial Hardware Diagnostics (make sure to run a couple of the anti-malware scans).
Also, please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Also, as this seems to involve networking (tcpip.sys and afd.sys are Windows networking drivers) it's likely to involve either malware, or some internet-aware program(s) on your system. The reports that I requested in the first paragraph will help us to figure out which may be involved.

Hi. I've gotten the BSOD "SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION" a couple of times now so I'm kind of curious as to what is causing it. I attempted to analyze the dmp files myself following the sticky at the top with windbg but I'm getting kind of lost and unsure on how to proceed as the cause points to win32k.sys
At the most recent point where it has happened I attempted to open a PDF file, though I am not sure if that helps at all.
? OS - Windows 7 Professional
? x64
? What was original installed OS on system? Win7 x64
? Full Retail Version
? Age - ~3 months; new hardware/os
? i5-750
? Gigabyte GTX 460
? Asus P7P55D-E Pro
? Corsair 750watt

Attatched are the files jcgriff2 outlined in the BSOD Posting Instructions.

NOTE: I realize that all the minidumps are in the zip but I believe only the most recent two are the ones that need attention. I had posted previously on this forum and jcgriff2 helped me with the batch preceding September 9th. Also, I believe the minidump from 10/18/10 has to do with the fact that I moved my computer to a different room and had to resocket the power cable on the motherboard as it was causing my computer to shut down. Essentially, the only ones causing concern for me are the ones from 11/01/10 and 10/25/10.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Hi -

NetLimiter is named as the probable cause in 2 of the 6 BSODs -

nltdi.sys Mon May 24 06:18:45 2010 (4BFA5285) - NetLimiter driver - http://www.netlimiter.com/

I suggest that you remove NetLimiter.

One 0x124 crash occured while linpack64.exe was running - Intel Burn Test, so hardware failure may be the cause.

I'm looking to get some help a BSOD that just popped up again today. First, a little background.

Specs: Intel Core i7-4790, EVGA GeForce GTX 950, Cooler Master HAF 912 - System Build - PCPartPicker

I built this machine about 3 weeks ago, and from the very first time installing Windows 10 I received a BSOD. After I got through the installation of Win 10 I was getting a BSOD about once every half hour, usually related System Service Exception or IRQ something or memory. So here is what I did on that same day.
1. Swapped out video card, reinstalled Windows 10 (Still got BSOD)
2. Swapped out SSD, reinstalled Windows 10 (Still got BSOD)
3. Reseated RAM, reinstalled Windows 10 (No BSOD)
4. Ran memtest86+ on each RAM module for varying passes on each module in each slot, no errors. Also ran Windows memory diagnostic, no errors.
5. Did sfc /scannow, windows found some corrupt files but could not repair all of them.
6. My conclusion was that I didn't seat the RAM properly the first time around and because of that the system files were got screwed up during installation.

Since then, my desktop ran almost flawless, minus a random web browser crash here and there. Then today things got bad. Mozilla would crash every few minutes, so I switched to IE, and got the same thing. Downloaded and installed Opera and Chrome, both crash. Then, along with the browser crash came a BSOD with System_Service_Exception 0x0000003b. Event viewer says the system rebooted from a bug check.

Hey I have run into a bit of trouble with my PC lately.

I have constantly been getting SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION BSOD and it's apparently a problem with win32k.sys.

I let my teacher have a look at some of the crash logs and he said it looks like a video card related problem. I swapped my card with my old one, was all running good and thought I was fine and then all of a sudden I got it again.

This happens on games like starcraft II, grand theft auto iv, killing floor and nation red.

It happens when alt-tabbing and quitting from these games. It doesn't happen all the time but just a lot of it.

I am suspecting ASUS pre-installed "stuff" as the driver dates back to 2007, it might be best just to remove ASUS utilities, esp. those that relate to sound.

everyone i take it too cant find anything wrong with it, they cant even force it to crash but then i plug it in at home and it crashes.....
system is running off a ups so it shouldnt be a power issue.

these sys scans that you have asked for will only show 2 gig of ram, i have up to 8 was running 4 at the time of bsod.
i know that makes it sound like a ram issue but ive had the mother board and all ram tested and nothing wrong with them but just when the pc starts to die its alot more if not completely stable with only 1 stick of ram in it.

Hello all,

I've poked around here before to learn a bit, but never had to post until now. Having some BSOD issues. Whenever I try and open up the device manager, it goes to a BSOD. It also goes to a BSOD if I try to open up the End of Nations game. Every time but one it has told me the BSOD was for System_Service_Exception, except once it said Page_fault_in_non_paged_area.

System specs:

Vista Home Premium - 64-bit
Intel T9400 Processor - 2.53 GHz

I ran memtest and it didn't find any problems. And I can open up the device manager in safe mode. All the drivers I checked were the current versions, and not finding any viruses or issues with running adaware and AVG.

Any help would be greatly greatly appreciated! Thanks for all you guys do here.
