Multiple BSODs in the last couple of months

Q: Multiple BSODs in the last couple of months

Hi guys, I've been getting a lot of blue screens on my newish laptop, got it in September and I sometimes get a good few per day.
I've got Windows 7 64-bit and it came installed when I bought the laptop.
I've attached the relevant things, and I'd be very grateful if someone could take a look and see if they can tell what's up!

Thanks 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.)

The 5 most recent are caused by memory corruption (probably a driver-My bet is avg)

I notice your AVG which is often at least a contributing cause of BSOD'S . Please remove and replace your AVG with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

Download tools and utilities | AVG Worldwide

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

These crashes were caused by memory corruption (probably a driver). Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!
1-Memtest.





Quote:
*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.



RAM - Test with Memtest86+

2-Driver verifier






Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Good day,

I have been away on vacation for 2 months and after I've come back, my pc went to hell :D

These are the problems im facing :

The PC BSODs after putting pressure on it. Mainly - games.

Firstly ALL of them simply crash, browser ones - shockwave has crashed.
Minecraft - java crashed.
Guild Wars 2 - crash, etc etc.

Now if I put even more pressure than just try playing them, for example run a minecraft server AND play in it - I BSOD.

Now a day back it was alot worse - I would BSOD minutes after startup without doing a thing! So I took measure :

1. Updated all my drivers.
2. Ran a virus scan (clean)
3. Ran a Malware scan (1 malware file)
4. Used Registry Mechanic to its full power.

All of these seem to have helped to getting me able to use the pc just fine if I dont game.

Now what I suspect is a RAM failure. I ran a Memtest and it came out with 29 errors after one run.

I'm new to the forums and also am using Windows XP SP3 so I dont know what error info and how to give you :( If you specify and instruct -ill get you the logs.

Computer :
Inter(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU
E4600 @2.40GHz

Hi Salrion,

Welcome to the 8forums.

It appears I cannot read the latest dump file, this could be caused by hardware damage. I think the hard drive might be causing this.
The 2nd most recent dump file says there might be memory corruption.

The computer is sporadic sometimes it will bsod almost immediately launching almost any game wow,steam games,ect even sometimes just launching the web. Other times it will run for hours without bsod then suddenly crash. I've seen it get to the desktop and bsod 5-6 times in a row. Very random from what I can tell its not linked to a specific application.

Any help is greatly appreciated at this point i'm thinking its probly a hardware failure of some sort. Pinning it down would be helpful.

Some background on this - had 7 crashes in the past couple days. All 7a's. 3 within the past 12 hours. Two didn't have any file names after the error codes. 5 did. Two were dxgkrnl.sys, one was ks.sys, one was msfs.sys, and another was something with mgr.sys in it. My theory is it has to do with memory or my gfx card because its anytime I load up a game or open chrome (using IE just to be able to post this) that has many tabs saved that will open up when I open it. It seems whenever it's a large load of memory is being used. I'd like to NOT believe my HDD is dying but that is my last theory. :( I am fairly new to this.

BugCheck 7A, {fffff6fc4002ede8, ffffffffc000009c, 34cacbe0, fffff88005dbd000}

The 2nd argument is 0xc000009c which is - STATUS_DEVICE_DATA_ERROR. This essentially implies there's an error with your hard disk.

Run Chkdsk and then Seatools:

Chkdsk:
There are various ways to run Chkdsk~

Method 1:

Start > Search bar > Type cmd (right click run as admin to execute Elevated CMD)

Elevated CMD should now be opened, type the following:

x implies your drive letter, so if your hard drive in question is letter c, it would be:

Restart system and let chkdsk run.

Method 2:
Open the "Computer" window
Right-click on the drive in question

Howdy all! I was here in the past a while ago with getting semi-frequent BSODs on boot after the splash and login screen. The issue I found was a loose power connector.

Hi there this is my first post on these forums so apologies if I'm not too familiar with the layout. I'm not too computer savy so if anyone could try simplify any answers/solutions that would be great. Basically the problem is for the past few months around start up of windows 7 I was getting freezes, BSOD errors (in particular IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and Page_fault_in_non_paged_area being the main ones) and my pc would be in a continuous loop of booting then freezing or shutting down and I couldn't get the pc to work. I thought the problem could be corrupted windows files so I reinstalled windows onto my computer using the isntallation disk and installed drivers and all was working fine for around 4 days. Each day my windows would have importaint updates so I installed them when prompted. One day I all of a sudden started getting the same errors I got before, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGEED_AREA and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and no new software had been installed at this point. I have tested ram and my hard drive with no errors showing although when looking at properties of my computer I have 20GB of ram (16GB Available) not sure if this has anything to do with it (2 x 8 GB sticks 1 X 4 GB stick). Hopefully you guys can help me out and prevent me shelling out on a new rig. Thank you, Conor .

5 months of Multiple BSODs on a brand new computer - driver or hardware error? Mini dump analysis help please.

Hi, I?m looking for anyone who can analyse mini dumps and help me determine the source of my problems.

The system has been giving me hell from the start. The problem often manifests in different driver and memory errors - To my level of understanding the errors seem to be fairly unrelated. When it runs well it?s awesome and it really performs. When it starts messing up, that?s it, it might BSOD on every start up 5times in a row and then start working for no apparent reason.

I ruled out: faulty PSU and faulty RAM, and system always runs cool, (the hottest component being the fanless graphics card).

I have also run extensive tests on system hard drive:
Seatools returned no errors after firmware upgrade and 2 long tests. However DiskCheckup keeps changing its mind out predicted TEC date: it jumps from Jan 2010 too Aug 2011 either of which is unacceptable and well within manufacture warranty

Reinstalled windows countless times with different installation CDs

So that leaves MOBO, CPU, GPU or maybe some software of driver issue.

I feel that it must be hardware related but I can?t work out what it is, on top of that the faults are often intermittent making trial and error testing unreliable.

2-3 months ago I started getting the wonderful BSOD.
I have been pushing it off to the side ever since, sometimes I've gotten BSOD's up to maybe..
10 times a day or so.. maybe even more.
Sometimes I'll go a day or two without one though.
I stopped keeping track of the codes I got months ago because I get a few.
0x00000007 is what it started out with. I've also gotten 0x0000000E 0x000000007E, 0x0000000A.
Started getting 0x0000000D or 0x0000000D1 lately too.
Number of 0's may vary on all those.. not really sure on the exacts.

Usually it's a random crash, I'll just be doing anything then bam, blue screen.
Sometimes though it'll happen when I open specific programs.
Right now, when I open Tor Browser it's an instant BSOD with 0x0000000D1.

I need help, badly!

A:BSOD problems for a couple of months..

All of them point one way or another to your drive controller drivers (Nforce). You'll want to update your chipset drivers for your mobo (or downgrade if need be) seeing as it's dated May 2009 (at least the drive controller is). You will also want to update your BIOS as well (v. 1.0.2; dated 03/04/2008). Both the drivers and BIOS you should obtain only from the Dell website.

Make sure your sata drive(s) are also set to DMA mode and not PIO. This can be done by going into device manager and right clicking the drive/sata controller (not the drive itself) and go to Properties. Under one of the tabs (Advanced?) should be an option to change the mode for each drive available.

Yeah, what it says in the title. I bought this computer in March 2011 and a year later I started having BSoD's. They're not that usual, maybe one per week if that and it's mostly MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. I know I've had one PFN_LIST_CORRUPT too, but the process target seems to vary.

I am not an expert in dealing with minidumps, I never got the symbols correct so I used some web analyzer, but maybe you guys could take a look? Here are the tree latest ones:

062612-17440-01.dmp
062612-29343-01.dmp
070612-19578-01.dmp

I updated all the drivers I could find: chipset, USB, soundcard, Ethernet and graphics. The latest Nvidia driver seems unstable for me because of TDR's, which I'm thinking is a separate problem so I'm using 295.73.

My next step, I think, would be this Driver Verifier I've heard so much about or maybe Memtest86+ which I think I have lying around on a CD. I am running x64 and my specs should be visible.

Help a Swede out?

Edit: I missed the BSoD instructions. Here is my ZIP archive.

A:I've been having BSoD problems for a couple of months now...

have you installed service pack #1?

If yes, update your specs to reflect such and also tells us whether this a starter version, an ultimate version or just what.

If you have not install the service pack, then install the service pack.

Always install any and all updates offered by MS. This is Win 7 and not eXPired.

This has been going on for a couple of months, and I can't seem to recognize the cause. That is to say, I don't notice any one program which brings this about. It's now getting to the point that my computer is unreliable. So? I humbly come to the boards and ask for your help, as I don't want to do a fresh install any time soon. I attach both a system health report and bug report with this post. Please, if anyone knows how to read these, I would be extremely appreciative for any help!

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

My local PC shop says you should reinstall windows & format hard drive EVERY 2 MONTHS!! I say this is completely ridiculous as by the time you have put everything back in place - not to mention all the updates for your anti-virus - spyware and adware programmes, it's time to start again!! Surely you should try a repair first etc..

Hello,

I have been having issues with a custom built PC for some time now, and am hoping to find help here. I recently had to install a new motherboard, so the current OS age is much less than my hardware's age. I have installed all the up-to-date hardware drivers and only a couple of games. Here are the requested specs:

OS: Widows 7 64-bit OEM
System Age: between 1.5 - 2 years
OS age: 1 week

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500k Sandy Bridge
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 (fermi)
Motherboard: ASRock B75 Pro3
Power Supply: Corsair TX750 (750 Watt)

I have Driver Verifier running at the moment, and have attached the output from the file collection app. Thank you for any help you can offer!

* Additional Note: I have been trying to identify the bad driver on my own using WinDBG in the Windows SDK. Every dump file I look at just lists an Unknown_Image as the probable cause. However, the system seems to run stable indefinitely unless I try to run a game. It loads my web browser just fine, downloads games just fine, streams video and plays music. As soon as (or shortly after) I run a game, the system BSoDs.

A:BSoD issues have been plaguing me for a couple months

I assume you reinstalled last week because of this issue?
If so it's probably not a software issue, seeing memory corruption and code corruption mentioned in the dumps tells me to test the ram first.

D/L Memtest+ burn it to a CD using a free program like Imgburn if you need one then boot from the CD to test the ram, let it run for at least 6 passes or until you see an error.

My paypal account was hacked into a couple months ago. I woke up one morning before work, and discovered 4 emails form various venders, later discovered to be fraudulent, that purchases were made or ordered and to whom items sent or shipped to. This, of course is where my nightmare probably begain by unfortunately clicking on something in the email that began my infestation of various viruses, malware et al. Granted, thanks to the help of the Tech Specialist "Fireman", he helped me recently to resolve all my computer virus issues and now, thanks to him and Bleeping Computer, my computer has a clean bill of health.

Since the date that my computer was hacked, I was able to successfully resolve the issues with Paypal, my bank accounts and the unfortunate people involved who were also victimized as a result of this incident. Paypal has provided me with a Secret Decoder Key card to use which utilized several safety password features and precautions when logging onto their site when/ if I need to make an internet purchase. I have also opened a separate bank account just for the sole use of making internet purchases. When I get ready to make an internet payment, I simply transfer funds into that particular account and then utilize Paypal. I have been doing this on my other computer which was not violated because until just recently I had not felt safe doing this on the computer that was compromised.

A:I had my Paypal account hacked a couple months ago

First, definitely delete any passwords to accounts that are stored on your computer. For many reasons, including malware, it is not safe to keep passwords in an easily retrievable environment, especially from the local keyboard.

Instead write the down or use a password storage program like http://keepass.info/.

You may also want to consider Keyscramber, which will encrypt all keyboard strokes so that if you are ever infected with a keylogger this information is just garbage text when sent to the remote attacker.

I have been on these forums for help before, with the same blue screening computer. I still, and my manufacturing company, hasn't been able to find the problem and fix it for more than a few weeks/months. I have emails dating back to over a year ago, from Newegg, Cyberpower, tech support forums, trying to fix it. This computer has been nothing but hell.

Out of the box, new from newegg, the video card wasn't even in, and cords weren't hooked up. I hooked it up and such, and went to turn it on and the power supply didn't work. Got the computer exchanged for a new one right away (I wish I realized this is a very bad sign, and went with a different company other than Cyberpower) the exchange process took forever because newegg couldn't understand the issue, thought it was shipping problems, that made a video card fall out of it's slot.

My laptop has been running fine, and I have not needed to use it for a while. Today, I needed it to multitask something along with my desktop, and when I opened it, I noticed a couple of things

1. I got a couple of notices from my hidden icons area, saying that my computer couldn't update or something like that.
2. My computer theme was auto switched to classic for some reason

So I wanted the original windows 7 theme back, so I tried to change to aero, and it doesn't work.

Then the computer system restore popped up in my hidden icons on the bottom right, so I immediately clicked system restore, but things only got worst

Here are a couple of pictures to the problem

The system was searching for updates, and this was the result

I removed some unneeded programs and the interface was similar to the system restore interface, the back, next, and cancel buttons have no text on them, and it is just a blank layout

These are the ONLY 3 themes I can choose from after the problem occured, no other themes exist for some reason

Good and Free system security combination.
Download and install the security setup of your choice, update the software, and then run a full scan of your system for viruses and malware. If you only install MSE, I would also suggest installing and updating Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download, but do not start the free trial/full version of Malwarebytes. Run a full scan with Malwarebytes after updating it. Post back the results.

Hi all,

Never tried using a forum before so please excuse me if I do something wrong.
I'm desperate.
I built this PC with a little help from a computer savant. He helped me chose the pieces and I put it together. It's about 15 months old. Recently it fried the main SSD from which the OS booted (after 11 months of use). It was of course my fault for filling the SSD more than 80% (I have no computer certifications, I go by instinct most of the time and then learn the hard way) ... so it wouldn't surprise me if I have something to do with the computer failing so much now.
I've also had the feeling that my system has never really ran at full potential.
I think my BIOS settings need seen to as well. It's all on "default", when I think they can be tuned according to the components... but I don't know how to do that

Anyway, I'll do my best to answer and follow the guide you provide;

? OS - Windows 7
? x64
? What was original installed OS on system? Nothing, I built the tower from scratch
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? No, pirated version of Windows Ultimate 7
? Age of system (hardware) 15 months
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? Twice, because fried the SSD in January-ish this year

A:Random BSODs for a few months

Run a virus scan with your Anti Virus and then download and run Malwarebytes anti malware.

Malwarebytes | Free Anti-Malware & Internet Security Software



   Warning

Make sure you don't enable the free trial


Can you also run these tests.

Stress test your graphics card with Furmark

I recommend running it for around 30 minutes



   Warning

Furmark will increase the temperature of your GPU rapidly so keep and eye on your temperatures

Memtest86 will test your RAM



   Information

Run Memtest86 for at least 8 passes so we get enough information to confirm that your RAM isn't failing

Run a Disk Check to scan for errors



   Note

Afterwards go into an Elevated Command Prompt (Run as administrator) and type in sfc /scannow
If it finds errors reboot and run the scan two more times

Run SeaTools to see if your HDD or SSD is failing


Code:
BugCheck 24, {1904fb, fffff880072f1868, fffff880072f10c0, fffff80002e92cc4}

Sorry for all the text and thanks for reading in advance.

BSODs are random, it can be just browsing chrome or in the middle of a game. I've attached my most recent dumps. Strange things that my computer does that are worth noting is random extensions crash on chrome, and sometimes chrome just closes at a random time and won't open back up until I restart my computer. Some games(overwatch is the most consistent in crashing but it's still random) randomly crash so I thought it might have been my video card, but I run Unigine perfectly fine with alright temperatures in the max settings. Also when chrome crashes sometimes when I go to restart my computer that's when I'll get a bluescreen. Just before I started writing this my chrome closed so I had to restart and got the damn BSOD. Sometimes I will go to restart or shutdown and it just gets stuck on shutting down.

It's like sometimes I am certain that is has to be a driver, other times I am not sure at all, and then something else a little different will happen and then I'm certain it's hardware. I can't pin it down at all.

I'm on my 3rd set of ram, chkdsk and memtest both come back with zero problems. I want to list everything I've done but to be honest over the course of half a year, I can't even remember half of the things.

Alright guys,

Hope you all can help me sort this out since it's driving me crazy. Back in December of 2011, I overhauled my gaming rig with a new power supply (750W Silverstone Strider Gold), a new CPU (Core 2 Quad Extreme 9650), a new video card (EVGA GTX570 Superclocked), a new audio card (Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty), an additional 2 x 2gb of G.SKILL DDR2 800 Pi RAM for a total of 8gb, and a new Corsair case (not that this should matter). The additional ram was matched with an older 2 x 2gb set of G.SKILL Pi RAM. According to the manufacturer, the only thing that was changed between the two sets was the heat spreader. Additionally, I'm running Vista Ultimate x64.

My machine hummed along awesomely for about 5 months. Then back in May of this year, I started getting random crashes in World of Warcraft and Battlefield 3. At first, I would just crash to the desktop, but then this devolved into total BSOD system crashes. The stop messages include the following: CACHE_MANAGER, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, IRQL_GT_ZERO_AT_SYSTEM_SERVICE, POOL_CORRUPTION_IN_FILE_AREA, INTERRUPT_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED.

A:Random BSODs for the last 4 months

Welcome
First we do not have any current dump reports, the most current is several months old, I do not know what happened to the most current dmp reports.
That being said, if I do not read any of your narrative, my first thought would be that this is a hardware problem. There is an ocassional reference to memory. That is all that your reports indicate.
Now based upon that information and the fact that using 4 sticks you had 1000 errors, I would conclude that this is a memory problem. In fact one failed memtest indicates memory problem and the sticks shold be changed.
My inclination is that your specific problem is that the 4 sticks do not play nicely together, which is often the case when you mix and match and do not buy all the sticks at once. The only thing that I can suggest from your post and the test results is that you test the machine using different ram.
This does not seem to be a problem that will be solved by reinstalling, Vista or any other OS.

Hey everyone, i've been having the same BSOD ever since I got my new computer in November last year.

After repeatedly getting the 'A clock interval was not recieved on a secondary processor' BSOD a million times, I decided to send my processor back to ebuyer who said it was faulty and sent me a new one. I've also reinstalled windows completely as well as take out all parts to clean them.

Unfortunately this still hasnt solved my problem out like i'd hoped. The bluescreens are less frequent but still a nuisance when I'm trying to do my university work. It also crashes randomly sometimes without a bluescreen error.

I found a post here and read about running my minidump files through Microsoft's debugger but the setup just failed so I find myself begging for someone to take a look at my minidump files and potentially find me an answer to this frustrating problem.

The crashes typically occur when doing very small tasks like clicking a button in 3DS max, links on firefox. It seems to happen when it's loading something within an application its more likely to crash. People i've spoke to about it think it could be the motherboard but i've updated the bios.

Back in May I went through quite a few rounds of troubleshooting here for BSOD's that had been occurring. (Search for my previous threads to see that.) I ran memtest for 8 hours and had no errors, updated a bunch of drivers, etc. Since then I have had almost no issues... until a couple of days ago. Now it seems suddenly I am getting BSOD's very frequently - sometimes multiple times a day. There is no obvious pattern as to what triggers them. Sometimes I am using Eclipse (Java IDE). Sometimes I am reading email on Outlook. Etc. I have attached the zip file with all the dumps from the very latest BSOD. I can attach others if needed. Perhaps someone here will see an issue that I can fix. Thanks!

A:BSODs recurring after a few months with few or none

First off, the G750 series has had some issues with video card problems (both with overheating and with failing cards). Stay aware of this while you're troubleshooting.

This device needs to have drivers installed:





Not Available PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8C3A&SUBSYS_119D1043&REV_04\3&11583659&0&B0 The drivers for this device are not installed.



This is most likely the Intel(R) Management Engine Interface Driver. Please download and install the latest, Win8.1 compatible version available from the Asus website.

Out of 6 memory dumps there were 5 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- dirt/dust/hair/fur/crud inside the case. Blow out the case/vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum as they can cause damage to the system)
- missing Windows Updates
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems

By chance is your security software McAfee? This program has been known to contribute to BSOD.

Ever since I built this PC I've had BSODs every so often. I've not been able to trace them to any particular source, but lately they seem to be getting a lot more frequent and I am getting fed up, so I figured I would try asking here.

I've used the SF Diagnostic Tool to gather the requested information and attach it to this thread.

The most recent one seems to suggest a problem with the CPU. It's been suggested to me that my CPU might need a microcode update - I installed SiSoft Sandra Lite which is able to check the CPU microcode level and indeed it does suggest it isn't on the latest version, but as far as I can tell there is no procedure for manually updating microcode, you just have to wait and hope it comes down through Windows Update or something.

Can anyone help?

A:Intermittent BSODs over the past few months

Welcome to SF Dan .

The dump files are not showing a definitive cause but most of them are 0x1A, so the best course
of action in these type of situations is detailed in the quote below.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.

It was kind of a curve ball, and a little unsettling, because I thought I had solved the problem. I think I've narrowed it down to my graphics card, since a lot of the recent BSODs point to it, but I'm not sure if it's because the drivers are bad, or if the card itself is bad (it's an Nvidia, and I thought that those cards are able to withstand gaming for several years, so I'm a little disheartened if it's a bad card).

Specs:
OS: Windows 7
x64
The original installed OS was Windows 7, I think (this is a used laptop)
My OS is a full retail version
Hardware around 4 years old
The OS was re-installed 6-8 months ago.

CPU: Intel Core i7 Q720 @ 1.6 GHz
Video card: Nvidia GeForce GTS 360M
Motherboard: I'm not sure, but I assume it's the original Asus version?
Power supply: Asus N193 85V
System Manufacturer: Asus
Model Number: G60JX
I'm hoping that this is maybe a driver problem, and not something serious like a defective card or maybe faulty RAM.

Thank you for reading this!

A:After a few months of no BSODs, it suddenly came back

Hello NocturnalSleep,

Various differemt bugchecks but they're all pointing to your GPU drivers of DirectX one way or another. I'd recommend uninstalling and reinstalling your nVidia video drivers and reinstalling the latest version. If you're already on the latest version, I'd recommend uninstalling and installing a previous version to the latest to be sure it's not a simple driver issue.

Driver(s) in need of update:

ASMMAP64.sys - Sun Feb 04 14:52:56 2007 (LENOVO ATK Hotkey ATK0101 ACPI UTILITY). Update if available here.

I included a couple extra minidumps I had sitting in my minidump folder. The one on 5/3/2012 at 11:18 PM is the BSOD I got with Driver Verifier.

A little history, I've never had problems with my computer for over a year now. It's only been recently, as in 3 to 4 months ago, that I've started to get blue screens. At first it wasn't a big problem, then I started to get them more frequently after another month. I thought it was my RAM, so I purchased new RAM, Corsair Vengeance 8GB. I stopped blue screening for a while, then the intensity and frequency of the blue screens went through the roof, literally skyrocketed. I couldn't go a day without getting at LEAST 3 to 4 blue screens. I changed my RAM back to the pair I was using before, and I don't blue screen not nearly as much as I did.

Before I did that though, I formatted my harddrive and re-installed my OS. hoping that would solve any problems. It didn't, I'm still blue screening at least once a day. I've ran memtest on both my sets of ram. Corsair Vengeance failed miserably, while my Corsair XMS3 4GB passed. I'm not sure what to believe is causing my blue screens. I thought my motherboard might have became faulty, but ... Read more

Do you have any idea where that may have come from or what it may be related to? If so, un-install it.Then run Driver Verifier again to see what the result is.

I've been having BSODs since I built my system nine months ago, and I'm at a complete loss as to what's wrong. Just recently I RMA'd my motherboard as a last-ditch attempt at a fix because I couldn't find anything wrong. Every blue screen is an IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error. My device drivers are all up to date. My BIOS is up to date. I've run about 20 memtests and all come back clean. I've run diagnostics on my hard drives and all come back clean.

I got my motherboard back from the manufacturer in the beginning of December. My first blue screen after that was yesterday, after I used Registry Booster to clean my registry. I restored the files since I'd hoped that I'd removed something accidentally. I just received a second one about a half hour ago. I reset, and the system hung when Windows was trying to load. I reset again, got the message that Windows didn't start normally and the system hung at the 27 second countdown to choose how to load Windows. I did a hard shut down, booted, and it appeared to boot normally.

I did have a backup motherboard I used while my current one was being repaired, and during that time I had three Kernel error blue screens. After the third, the system did an automatic Disk Check on reboot and I didn't have one after that. Granted, I was only using that motherboard for about a month.

It may be worth mentioning that the line in/line out for my headphones hasn't worked properly since my c... Read more

I've been getting seemingly random BSODs on my Win8.1 box for months now. There are several different errors that show up, and most of them seem to point to the drivers. I have no idea which driver could be causing the issue though, as I've reinstalled the majority of them.

A few I can remember:
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
ATTEMPTED_EXECUTE_OF_NON_EXECUTE_MEMORY
TIMER_OR_DPC_INVALID

Bluescreenview points at ntoskrnl.exe for nearly every one of them, though some have others thrown in as well such as usbehci.sys, dgxkrnl.sys, and ndis.sys

I'm at a loss of what to do at this point. Some days I only get one BSOD, other days I get 5+. It's really starting to be an issue.

Then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.



Out of 11 memory dumps there were 5 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.

Hello all. I've been getting blue screen crashes for months (a check in my event viewer shows they started around January). Only recently did I decide enough was enough and to start looking into them.

Primarily, they manifest as STOP 0x109 errors, but there have also been a couple 0x1e errors and a few others show up once. I tried to enable driver verifier, as my research led me to believe that this was a driver error modifying the windows kernel. However, every time I tried to enable it and reboot, I would get a 0xc9 error. I found the erroneous driver that was causing this issue and deleted it, but upon digging back into the original repeated 0x109 errors I kept coming across the following in WinDbg:

"BugCheck 109, {a3a039d8a54ad540, 0, b266a988baa6cd90, 101}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt+76e80 )"

A quick google search yielded that this is the NT Kernel Multiprocessor, and that this showing up is something of a red herring - that is to say, it's an inconclusive cause for the issue. So, I'm hoping someone can help me out and point me in the right direction to determine what hardware is causing this issue (as I am now fairly certain it's a hardware issue, since it's not a specific driver being returned).

Thanks in advance, and please let me know if there is any information I neglected.

A:BSODs for months, finally trying to fix. Mostly BCCode 109+some others

OK, i have a feeling that we are definitely dealing with hardware here, first run memtest86+ as per this tutorial:

So 2 days ago I got an error IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL in relation to the driver ntoskrnl.exe. Now today, I got a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION error in relation to the same driver.

My system is a custom build, probably just over a year old. Here are the specs...

CPU: i3-2100 3.10GHz
GPU: MSI Cyclone GTX 460 SE
RAM: 8GB
Mobo: Asus P8H61-M PRO Intel H61 Socket 1155 8 Channel HD Audio mATX Motherboard

The only recent problem I can think off is that I had a tiny bad sector of a few hundred KBs on one of my external hard drives. I'm just wondering if that is finally kicking the bucket and messing with my system...

I have attatched the files requested in BSOD posting sticky so if you can have a look and get back to me that would be great! I am hoping that it is just a driver error or it can fixed by a format... Thanks for any help in advance!

Hi guys!
I'm new at this forum so bare with me, i really need your help.

Iv'e had a couple of hundred bsods during a timeframe of a year or so, but i still haven't found out a solution to solve them. Iv'e tried to locate what's making all the bsods and the conclusion is the following:

Atapi.sys
hal.dll
ntoskrnl.exe

Earlier i had windows 7 ultimate but i just recently changed to windows 8 pro. Iv'e also changed gpu and ssd drive just recently...

Iv'e attached the complete zip as requested and i'm hoping that you guys can stretch this out a bit for me.

If there's anything i can do to make things easier just tell me and i'll try the best i can.

Kind Regards // Sunshine

A:couple of different bsods

All BSOD's indicated atapi.sys was the cause. You might have a corrupted atapi.sys, please open elevated command prompt and run sfc /scannow to check if it is corrupted. If it does not find the error then your CD/DVD or Cable might be defective.
