BSOD, win32k.sys, ntoskrnl.exe, tabbing in and out of games crash

Q: BSOD, win32k.sys, ntoskrnl.exe, tabbing in and out of games crash

This computer is brand new and just over a week old, and when playing a game, upon either tabbing out, or back into the game after having been tabbed out, I sometimes get BSOD. For example, I was playing Metro 2033, then I tabbed out and open Chrome to look up something, then when I tabbed back into the game, I was greeted with a BSOD. Using BluescreenViewer to see the minidump files, the issues seem to be caused by win32k.sys and ntoskrnl.exe. Just wanna figure out why this is happening and I'm worried if it's my hardware. To my knowledge all drivers are properly updated.

Hello all,

I recently made a new PC build, everything went fine and all drivers are up to date and the latest. However when playing ANY game in fullscreen i sometimes get a BSOD and if i Alt+Tab our of one it will 90% of the time BSOD. Latest 3b is the BCCode that i get, i have tried sweeping and reinstalling graphics drivers however this did not work. This problem doesn't happen with anything else and does not crash if i play in windowed or border-less, however i use a crossfire setup so i need to use fullscreen to use both GPUs.

Any and all help is appreciated.

I built this PC a week ago with some donated parts from a friend (GPU and PSU) and the rest new. Running relatively well, I believe all my drivers etc. are up to date.

I had a few BSODs while alt+tabbing playing WoW or Hearthstone. This has never happened prior to the last few days. I didn't catch the error codes but hopefully the log shows them.

The only changes I've made recently is updating the Intel? Ethernet Connection I217-V drivers.

EDIT: It had a weird crash where the screen went black and was still on so I manually shut it down. When I turned it back on it went into the windows repair thing and is now attempting repairs.

EDIT2: Now it won't even start without blue screening. I can only use Safe Mode. Safe Mode with networkong blue screens too. I got a USB and am ready to clean reinstall. Should I?

A:BSOD while alt+tabbing in games

Hi friendlybear,

All the crashes are 0xF4 caused by hard drive problems, there are Input/Output errors (ioerr) in the dumps which means that the data cannot be accessed.
In safe mode you can try a few things that are probably needed.
1. Remove ASUS software, known for causing bluescreens.
2. Remove IObit software, its software isn't what you might think and Advanced SystemCare 8 causes problems.
3. Test your hard drive

Alright, so I have done a little research before making a thread here as I really don't want to waste anyone's time, but I am at wits end here with my problems.

Background:

Around 30th December I bought myself a SSD and installed it into my PC and created a fresh install onto the computer and everything ran fine for about a month then I began to get constant BSOD's (0x3b and an occasional 0x50). After a bit I decided to do a fresh install (about 1-2 weeks ago) to see if it would help the problem but alas, the problem has ensued.

I had not changed anything hardware wise since installing the SSD apart from placing it on a SSD mount.

When using WhoCrashed/BlueScreen view, several drivers keep appearing (ntoskrnl.exe, nvlddmkm.sys, win32k.sys). After seeing the video related problems I potentially though it could be driver related and reverted back to the drivers I was using before this BSOD's with a fresh install (GeForce 332.21 Driver). Sadly after a short period, the BSOD's resumed.

I am quite confused about this issue and even though the WhoCrashed program relates it to a software bug, I am unsure as nothing in my system changed from running fine to BSOD's, and the problem persisted straight after a fresh install (same setup in which the system ran fine for the month before BSODs).

BSOD info:

Most common BSOD:
0x3B (0xC0000005, 0xFFFFF9600026C9ED, 0xFFFFF88007C0E100, 0x0)

The day before yesterday, I installed a few free programs specifically from this thread:
What is a free PC program everyone should have? : AskReddit

The ones I installed specifically are:
CCCP
Malwarebytes
CCleaner
Defraggler (also uninstalled Auslogic's defragger and registry cleaner)
Irfanview (replacing xnview)
and Virtual Clone Drive (replacing Daemon Tools Lite)

I ran CCleaner and then defragged my C: drive. Everything worked just fine that day. However, when I turned on my computer the day after, I kept blue-screening whenever I opened my browser and whenever I tried to open Notepad++ (there may be other causes of BSOD but I haven't yet found them).

So far, I've already run Memtest86 once (by that I let it run overnight) without any errors. I am currently running it again just to be sure, though. I've already run chkdsk once without any issues there so I don't think it's a hard drive error either. I have already run Malwarebytes which didn't fix the issue but did find a few infected files. I already updated my graphics card drivers so that wasn't an issue.

A few minidumps are in the attached zip file but do not include the most recent BSODs because apparently using the internet via either Chrome or Firefox also makes a BSOD (thus, I had to manually move these minidumps over to my work computer).

Lancewiu, Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

Scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.
Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller
Windows Defender Offline
If memtest and virus scan comes free from errors, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Dear Support,

I have been taking random BSOD last 2 months. In many occasions it starts while being in-game for a while, or while browsing in Modzilla at at the same time. I have been trying to solve this issue for some time now. I updated nearly everything, re-installed Windows 7 64 bit 2 times already, memory checks all fine. These problems started after Windows XP was replaced by Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit on this console. With Windows XP I had never any problems.

In the first 2 months of this year I had no BSOD at all. It all started halfway March. In the same month NVIDIA released GeForce Driver 335.23. I have still no clue if this Driver was and still is causing it. After a fresh Windows install the PC will run alright for some weeks maybe a month. At one moment I will get BSOD every 2-3 days. Soon it will change to once a day. Then it will be like 1-5 random each day. I have tried nearly everything.

BSOD 0x0000003b, Win32k.sys, ntorkrnl.exe are causing the crashes. Windows Support however offers a dozen of different HOTFIXES for this issue. I do not know which one to take, or if any would work.

I have added the File: ENIGMA-wo_04-06-2014_103437,77.zip as requested.

Cheers,

Hello, I have begun getting BSOD's often. BSODviewer says that it is "ntoskrnl.exe" and some times also "Win32k.sys" together with "ntoskrnl.exe". I have tried Driver Verifier but it does not make any .dmp files when crash occur. I did not check Windows drivers in Driver Verifier and Windows would not boot up with Driver Verifier enabled.

Hello friends.

For more than 6 months now, I've been having BSODs after I quit or alt+tab the game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The BSODs don't seem to have any sort of pattern aside from not happening at all unless I have already played the game in the current session. They can happen right when I close the game, some time after I've closed it (5 minutes to 5 hours - feels really random) and also while I'm outside the game, but the game is still running in the background.

I don't know what else to do. I have already bought a new laptop - but it happened in the previous one too. I have formatted the current laptop countless times. I have tried multiple drivers for every single piece of hardware I have. I have plenty of friends who have the same BSOD (with multiple games), and none of us could solve it, but I'm the one who has been facing the problem for the longest time now I believe.

The BSODs are usually "Page_Fault_in_Non_Paged_Area" or "System_Service_Exception". Files always seem to be "win32k.sys" and "cdd.dll". Since I've last reformatted this laptop, I didn't have that many occurrences, but putting all of the BSODs together, I've probably had more than a 100 of them.

About a month ago, I started to get a lot of blue screens, which I thought was due to a new update for my Nvidia video drivers. They started getting worse so I downloaded WhoCrashed in order to get a better description of what was happening and it came to my attention that most were involving the ntoskrnl.exe. I had done some google'ing and apparently that is something you cannot just re-download and install as it is a compendium of your computer's drivings and/or settings (or so I've read). I decided to look further into it and it was also said that it could be due to using an old keyboard, which my keyboard was indeed 10+ years old. Ultimately, after making sure all my drivers were up-to-date and yet still getting blue screens, I re-installed Windows 7. I did this a few days ago, Thursday perhaps, and I am still getting blue screens like they are going out of style. I've used MemTest to check my RAM and after about 6-7 passes, it came up with errors. I cleaned all the dust out, re-seated the RAM, and tested each stick separately but could not duplicate the MemTest errors again. Regardless, I kept getting blue screens.

I use Steam often, and if I try to play any games, it's a guaranteed blue screen in about 10 minutes of playing. Leaving my computer just at the desktop will also result in a blue screen eventually, but strangely, if I leave Windows Media Player open playing an .mp3, it seems to put off the blue screens indefinitely until I either try to watch anything on ...

I've used MemTest to check my RAM and after about 6-7 passes, it came up with errors. I cleaned all the dust out, re-seated the RAM, and tested each stick separately but could not duplicate the MemTest errors again.


One of your RAM stick is probably defective or your BIOS RAM settings such as timings/voltages are incorrectly configured.
Reset your BIOS to default values

Over the past week or two I have been getting random BSOD's when gaming. Usually its blue screening when I quit the game or sometime if I alt tab out or in. I've been trying to figure it out for myself but I'm at a complete lose and its doing my head in. Anyway I hope I've sent all the needed information, if I've missed anything just let me know and I'll try and give all the information I can so please bear with me.

Remove Avast and replace with MSE.

Microsoft Security Essentials is recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other internet security software. Malwarebytes is a great combo to MSE. They are free and lightweight.

Also uninstall your existing Antivirus software before you install MSE.

Good and Free system security combination.

Good evening-

I've been experiencing BSOD's at an increasingly frequent rate since early July. It only seems to happen when I am playing, alt-tabbing out of, or exiting online games (GW2, FFXIV), or streaming video. The most recent BSOD took place last night during an FFXIV session. The most common error messages are system service exception and system thread exception not handled, though there have been a couple of others.

Once the BSOD's started, I downloaded Nirsoft's blue screen viewer - almost all of the crashes are linked to ntoskrnl.exe, nvlddmkm.sys, and dxgmms1.sys. The real issue is that the problem is fairly intermittent - one crash per 2-3 days. When I had a ram stick die on my last year it was pretty simple to diagnose, but I've proven unable to track this one down using my normal methods. Research online hasn't pointed to any specifics so I thought I would ask some experts for help.

Things I've tried so far:
Uninstalled all drivers and programs installed since the blue screens became frequent in June.
Updated nvidia drivers.
Ran chkdsk and virus scan with no hits on either
Updated BIOS
Ran memtest for 4 passes (about 2 hours) with no errors
Discarded an old, unsupported USB headset (which I thought was the culprit until a few nights ago)

I am not a very accomplished debugger, so any help you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated.

System Specs:
AMD Athlon II X4 640
ASROCK 870 Extreme3 R 2.0
8GB Kingston RAM (Four 2GB sticks)
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 460

A:BSOD during/exiting/alt+tabbing games, streaming video

Update:

I realized that I had beta nvidia drivers installed and rolled back to 320.49 WHQL, which given that I had that driver installed during several BSOD's might not fix the issue, but I did do a clean install of the drivers during the rollback.

Hoping to play FFXIV later tonight, so I will update with another dump if I crash again.

Hello everyone, if you do not mind, i go straight to the point

As the title says i have a serious issue with BSoDs and freezing. First i'll go into detail about bluescreens

These ones happen whenever i play any games with my computer. They're mostly random, and i have not seen any kind of pattern or spesific times when they happen. Computer doesn't overheat (i've checked the temperatures when in game using RealTemp) and any kind of lag is not present. I got completely new GPU from warranty yet these problems still exist.

Now about freezing problem. This issue is new and came along with the new graphics card. Like the BSoDs, these also happen completely random times. Sometimes whole computer simply freezes, sometimes i am able to move mouse around after few seconds. Other things include sudden screen shut down and recovery, along with a notice "Windows Kernel driver 320.somehing has stopped working and recovered". I don't remember correctly. There is an occasion when my computer freezes for few seconds and then works almost properly. The cursor, you see, is all screwed up. I've added photos of the cursor (although they are pretty bad)

Strange thing is that BSoDs only happens in games, and freezing only happens in normal use

Any suggestions and help is welcome

Prime95, Stable 100% CPU, but not at 100% RAM

- > Random BSODs, even when barely ANY Ram is in use and the computer is Idle, not gaming related but occurs more when gaming or RAM dependant even though it's 16GB.

BIOS - > Nothing changed except XMP enabled and usb legacy boost + Fans

Voltage : Auto on everything (Can be related but not 100% Sure, i want some confirmation, but i've heard since i'm using ALL ram ports it can need more voltage)

About the blue screen errors, how should i post them here? The errors are basically Memory_Management and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, with the problem occuring at ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 (5 times), win32k.sys+cda3a AND b2598 (2 times total)

Bios is Updated to latest version, still same problem occured

Hello everyone,

Lately i have been running into several BSOD which started about a week ago and only seem to be getting worse. I got my first BSOD after installing the program Discord (voice chat program) it gave a faulty installation and a couple of hours later i got a BSOD. After restarting after the first BSOD i did not think much of it since it never happened before and reinstalled the discord program, it gave a faulty installation but the program itself worked. 2 days later everything was still going fine till i opened Discord. the second i opened the program i got a BSOD so after that looked for the discord program in the software removal screen but it was not there. So after that i removed the discord folder and i was hoping to be done with it. Today i got multiple BSOD while gaming/browsing so i started to look what caused it exactly.

I used the driver verifier and it automaticly crashed on startup. Since i could not read the dump files i used BlueScreenView. In the dump logs i could see Ntoskrnl.exe was always a part of the reason why it crashed.
There were other things that came up aswell in a few of them: dtsoftbus01.sys , aswsnx.sys and win32k.sys. After reading around on this forum i deleted the dtsoftbus01.sys since it was knows for causing BSOD. Yet that did not fix it.

Hi 7Forums,
I recently bought a new computer from a pc build website. I installed Win7 HP 64bit and started to instantly experience BSODs. After a bit of diagnostics, memtest told me that one of the RAM sticks was horrifically broken, that has since been sent off for replacement and the system has been 'more' stable with only 8gb. However I have still been experiencing BSODs specifically when the computer isn't doing very much of anything.

I have been trying to play BF4 which as you will probably know is littered with awful programming and has constant crashes, generally though (90% of the time) these are 'soft crashes' and I can ctrl alt delete and end the process. Most of the BSODs seem to not actually be related to the game crashing, though may have come about because I have been trying to update my drivers etc etc to stop the constant game crashes?!?
I have done another fresh install since removing one of the 8gb ram sticks, and did the usual driver installs, updates, and microsoft important updates. I then went through and re-installed all my usual programs - vlc/skype/CCcleaner/malwarebytes/adobe air/flash/postgresql/bbflashback video recorder/MSE.
Since my last fresh install on the 17th November I have had 12 BSODs many of which have come about when the computer is either basically idle, or i'm watching a youtube video or just browsing files in explorer rather than whilst playing bf4 or doing more intense stuff.

Hi lsaw2.

Your crash dumps are not showing finite cause, but they are stop 0x3B, usually caused either by RAM or by any driver failure..

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.
If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If memtest86+ is free from errors, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to ... Read more

Hi Sevenforum Members,
i hope you can help me with my PC problems.
My System:
Windows 7 64 Ultimate OEM Version (Installed myself)
- What is the age of system (hardware)?
Just recently bought a new mainboard,cpu,memory
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?)
Reinstalled with the new hardware.

I already took some of your recommended tests to find out what is wrong. But i have not been sucessful yet.
I identified the FNETTBOH_305.sys as a problem with driver verifier. It got rid of it and my PC is already running a lot more stable.

My PC is often crashing with a BSOD when playing games. It has not happend if just browsing the Web or anything else not related to 3D graphics so I suppose the first problem is solved.

I made a zip file as described. I hope I did everything correct.

If you have any idea what causes the BSODs please get in touch.

Sincerely Alexander

A:BSOD playing Red Faction/other Games, related to win32k.sys

Hey all,
I'm having an issue with my ASUS F5GL laptop. If I try to launch a game like Counter-Strike: Source, Garry's Mod or Just Cause 2, not long after actually leaving the menu and beginning to play (anywhere between 2-5min), the whole laptop just silently crashes. I checked ALL the logs, and there is nothing in there, except something recorded at boot, saying the computer was not cleanly shutdown. When it does crash, a second before it crashes, a weird thin horizontal line appears in a random location on the screen, going all the way across the screen. This was happening under Windows Vista, but I just bought and did a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium, and it's still happening. I have updated my drivers and it still happens. Laptop info is below (caution, large block of text)

Hi. I've recently been trying to play Metal Gear Solid 5 but every time I boot it up my PC either crashes as soon as the splash screens are done or after a few minutes. It's been crashing while playing other games as well but it's been much rarer. It's not a BSOD crash and it doesn't produce any crash dumps so I'm leaning towards it being a problem with either the PSU, the motherboard or one of the graphics cards. Any help with finding the cause of this would be appreciated.
 
The PSU model is fd-psu-newt2-800, the graphics cards are both Nvidia GTX760s and the motherboard is a ASUS Sabertooth Z77

I keep getting BSOD's with Strings like: KERNAL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, REFERENCE_BY_POINTER, BAD_POOL_HEADER, ETC..

I've ran memory test and checked HDD. I'm not seeing any issues there. Can someone please take a look? I would greatly appreciate it.

PS. DM log collector tool hangs on the MSINFO collection. It won't finish. I'll upload what it was successful at grabbing.

I keep getting BSODs when I play games for a short while. At first I thought it was a bad installation of Windows, so I did a clean format (full) of my SSD and a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Installation failed quite a few times before finally succeeding. Tried another copy of Windows 7, same install failures. I finally finished reinstalling Windows 7 on my PC. I suspected the RAM to be at fault so I ran MemTest86+ and found a ton of errors. Upon closer inspection of the BIOS settings, I found that my board was clocking my ram in [Auto] mode at 1333mhz instead of the factory 1600mhz (Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 @1600 CAS9 on Asus Sabertooth Z77). I updated my BIOS to the latest as of this posting and I still have to manually set the memory frequencies for it to run at 1600mhz.

Everything seemed fine for a few hours running prime95. I supposed my PC was fine now after that clean install of Windows 7, but a few minutes into playing Battlefield 3, I BSOD. I am no pro at reading dump files and I was hoping someone could help me isolate the sources of my BSODs. I've attached the minidump files for each BSOD below. Thanks!

A:BSOD when playing games. BlueScreenView says ntoskrnl.exe caused BSOD

My system specs are:
