Preferred Solution: BSOD While playing any graphic intensive game 0x00000018

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

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

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

Hi TenForums!

First of all, this is my first post here, although I've followed many threads before without an account. I hope I come to be of value to this community.

The main reason I'm writing though is another: I purchased a Clevo P650RG laptop, and I going crazy with BSOD's when gaming. Oddly, they seem to happen only in some games. So far, Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Skyrim Special Edition and The Crew. They don't last 30min without giving me BSOD's, always related to ntoskrnl.exe

Although, these game are somewhat secondary to me, as I'm more into sim-racing, and I'm able to play Assetto Corsa with my G27 wheel for more than an hour without any problem. So I'm assuming it happens only when I push harder for the hardware since Assetto is relatively light on it. Also, I've working hours straight on it without problems.

I've tried a lot of drivers already, mostly CPU and GPU, but I'm lost. I don't think the problem comes from faulty hardware, but if so I'd also like to know if there's a way to check that (already ran almost half of Memtestx86 without errors though).

I'm attaching a zip created as instructed in "BSOD Posting Instructions" in case someone has a clue of what's going on.

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
EdwardFFS

Hi, thanks for helping. I'm not great with computers but I've been searching for a solution to this problem and can't find one so decided to start my own thread.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64-based, Asus laptop with Intel Core i5 and Geforce 610M with 2GB graphics memory.

I've tried playing Dark Souls 2, Fifa 14 and NBA 2k14. All run fine for 10-30 minutes until the BSOD.

Seemed to start when I started using an Xbox for Windows controller. I have updated the graphics card driver, the controller driver, and all windows updates are installed, including optional ones.

I also tried running NBA 2k14 without a controller plugged in and the same BSOD happened after about 10 minutes.

And I disabled Avast antivirus, also to no avail.

I have used the SF Diagnostics tool to grab the information. It is in the zip file attached.

I have removed the 2 new sticks of 2x4gb ram and began trying to test the PC.

I ran memtest on each of the 2 remaining sticks of ram for 12(first one overnight) and 9 passes without finding errors.

I have ran the furmark test for over 20 minutes and my temps never ran higher than 83(which is about what the card is supposed to do)

However when I try to run Prime95 in any test with 8 threads is almost instantly crashes. I was able to run the small fft test with up to 6 cores without a problem, but as soon as I added a 7th worker is causes a crash within minutes. I have not played around much with the thread number for the other tests, I just know it causes a restart without BSOD every time I try to run the 8 worker torture test.

I have also tried running OCCT tests. With the OCCT: CPU test in small data set a reset happens after about 2-3 minutes. Large data set doesn't run for more than 5 seconds before restart. And the OCCT: Linpack test has about the same results.

A:Computer restarts when playing graphic intensive games

Without any dumps or logs, it's hard to tell but my first guess would be that you're running out of power. Your PS says it supplies 54A on the 12v rail. (I would venture to guess it's less.) PSs don't like to run at peek output for very long. Your video requires 30A, CPU about 15A, Motherboard about 7A. That's 52A right there. Then add all your fans, drives and additional hardware. But, as I said, this is a first guess.

Hi,
I currently run a Dell XPS 720
it has a 3.0ghz dual core processor
8gb ddr21033hmz ram
1 raptor, 2 x 1tb drive
gtx 295 zotac edition
700w psu

I recently did a fresh install and decided to over clock the graphics card a bit. did lots of research on the web found the highest for my card with extra cooling etc..
over clocked it fine using msi afterburner and everything still ran fine.
(i put it up to 700 core clock, 1500 shader and 1100mV from 1021 mV)

However a couple of hours later when i did a stress test there is a reasonably loud buzz. Not to sure where from but think it might be the PSU
this only occurs when under a lot of strain and afterburner shows the gpu use as above 60%
its not stupidly loud, but is noticeable.
I have since underclocked the card and the sound is still there when under gpu intensive applications.

Is this something to worry about? I dont really fancy a new psu as they are hard to find ones designed for the BTX form factor.
Or is it just a fan?

BTW latest drivers and everything

About a couple days ago it started to get intense artifacting then the display driver will crash receiving the typical message of "display driver crashed due to taking to long to respond"- but it mostly crashes playing mildly graphic intensive games, sometimes i get crashes just being on the desktop, but it's rare

I guys I have a X1 Extreme / i8850H / 64mb / 1TB / 4k Display / 1050ti This laptop runs cool for 30 Minutes, than randomly fans start going crazy and it hits 85-100 Degrees What is causing this, How can I keep it from getting so Hot and running on fans all the time? I usually use my laptop on my actual bed mattress, this doesn't work so well, so I have been using a solid object to put underneath it so it can blow out air out of the bottom, I am guessing on a Bed or on my lap the Fans are covered, preventing it from cooling the device? I have also heard there is a Hybrid and Discreet Graphics on the Bios setting, will turning it to one or the other help with the cooling and also help with Battery Life? I don't need to use the 1050ti all the time, I am guessing when I use Photoshop or Play games I would just switch it back and forth. Also is there a Windows App that can also switch between the Discreet and Hybrid Settings? Is there also a App in windows that can manage the fans better or control the thermal throttling, Lenovo Vantage didn't do much, as I have it on cooling mode and it still runs hot for 30 mins, than runs cold for 30 mins and random stuff. I am mostly browsing the web, but I am transferring Data to a backup HD sometimes, but the SSD shouldnt be getting hot in the laptop, the CPU is. Sorry for the long post Just want to know what you guys recommend as a solution?

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.

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. If you have uploaded DMPs before please only the new ones.
* 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.

Hello!

I have an issue that has plagued me since the "birth" of this custom-DIY PC.

Issue: Whenever I play any graphically-intensive game or push its settings to near/full maximum, be it BF4, GW2, CS: GO, Tomb Raider, or TF2, eventually after playing for a while (~30 minutes - 1 hour?) I would get a BSOD. The bizarre thing is, after I restarted the PC and re-launched whatever I was playing, the BSOD would never come again until I shut down my PC and turn it on another time. The whole process then repeats itself.

This occurred since when I was still using W7 x64. I used to overclock in the past and at first, I thought it was because of that but after resetting the settings back to default, I realize it wasn't. I used to closely monitor the temps and all back when I was frantically trying to resolve this issue but now I just monitor the LED reflecting off my MSI N780 Lightning. I noticed that if I stepped down the graphical settings of my games to a point where it's barely putting much load onto my GPU, there's a decent chance that it may not crash.

Opinion: Nowadays since I have no idea what else to do, I just try not to shut down as much as possible. More often on W7 x64, the BSOD errors might specifically indicate memory-related errors according to Google and have been considering to replace my RAM. Now on W8.1, not so much. But I still believe this might be a driver issue.

Whatever I've tried:
1) Re-installed GPU drivers
2) Chkdsk

Hi, I have an Asus P4P800 mobo with a pentium 4 processor running at 3ghz. I'm using 2GB of RAM with a Gigabyte 256mb GeForce 6800 GT video card.

I have run benchmark tests using PerformanceTest on graphics processing and had 700+ FPS on 2D graphics, 90+FPS on 3D Medium graphics, but was under 10FPS on 3D complex graphics. These tests were run at 800x600. The card itself I know is not faulty because I've tested it in another computer and it performed beautifully.

On any graphic intensive game, basically any HL2 game or mod, battlefield 2, C&C Generals, elder scrolls: oblivion, the games run at a very low FPS. However the graphic abilities of the card can be enabled, (HDR, pixel shading, etc) but even without these graphics enabled the game will still run very sluggish. This problem even occurs sometimes on very non-graphic intensive games, such as flash games.

I'm wondering if anyone knows what the issue is, i've checked all the settings in the bios at least 5 times and they're all correct and all other benchmark testing was great, the only bad result was the complex 3d graphics test. Normal CPU functions run very well, i can alt-tab in and out of programs very quickly and can ran many programs at once, but since this computer is designed for semi-gaming, this fault is very problematic.

For the last couple of weeks I have been having BSODs when running 3d graphics intensive apps. The crash occurs most when running dx10-11 apps and almost never when running OpenGL apps (like furmark).

I have tried multiple troubleshooting solutions generally used in this scenario.
reset mobo to stock voltages (CPU was moderately overclocked earlier).
went all the way from 100 level forceware graphics drivers to the 275 beta drivers.
ran memtest86+ (stable) and prime95 (stable) for a few hours.
ran furmark for about 30 mins (stable).
reinstalled windows.
reseated RAM, tried the other channel.
updated every driver i could

The problem started after Dragon Age 2 spazzed out on me a couple of weeks ago. running the game in dx9 mode fixed the issue.
Then i started playing Assassin's Creed Brotherhood which ran smoothly for a while, then started BSODing frequently (now i can play for maybe 3 minutes before a crash). I was still able to play Call of Duty Black Ops without crashes, but after some of the latest crashes (after running Unigine heaven bench), even that seems to cause a crash.

I think I have done enough to isolate the problem to either mobo or gfx card. It would be very nice if i could get an expert opinion on the matte... Read more

This usually only happens with Directx11 games, as Java, video and old school OpenGL based games don't seem to cause these issues. I also have no problem with 2D mode. Here is the initial information requested:

I have a Windows 7 OS installed on the system. It is 64 bit. Originally installed on the system was nothing, the system is custom built. It is not OEM, my friend installed a full retail version for me. The age of the system varies. The CPU and Motherboard are dated. However, the Memory, HDD (1TB), and graphics card are all new. The OS is fairly new as well, has only been installed for a few months. I have a Core 2 Quad Q6600 overclocked at 3.0GHz from the stock 2.4, stable. Ran a days work of Prime95. Also tried playing at stock, same issues. The video card is an Asus R9 270x. I usually keep it overclocked, but when it started having BSOD's at what I thought was a stable clock (Burn In was fine, no artifacts), I reduced it to stock, still no improvements. Everything is hooked up to a ASUS P5n-e SLI motherboard, again, quite dated. As for the PSU, I have a RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-630SS 630W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V.

I will of course have the reports attached to the post, but I also tried some research of my own before attempting to seek help.

I would check the memory timings you might pushing that 1333 memory stick to hard. The cpu can handle memory modules up to 1866. By the way you would get much better performance running dual channel. What about your video card is it overheating, OCed what? Download speccy and publish a link and also If you could upload the dump file that would be great. It's in the windows/minidump.

I am having issues with Windows 8.1 blue screens, while playing graphically intensive games like CS:GO or PAYDAY 2.I have recently un-installed Windows 7 because of some issues with DCOM server process launcher(probably malware)the thing wouldn't let me do repair installs or check the sound settings without restarting,and games also randomly crashing though I am not sure if it was driver related too.So now I am on 8.1 Enterprise and DCOM is working fine,everything isworking except for one thing:Games crash after 20-40 minutes of play time(CS:GO,PAYDAY 2...)sometimes I do manage to play an hour of and finish my session,games that are older(Garry's mod)Do NOT crash at all!.

Ok so thats the story,I have a program called Who Crashed and here are its crash reports:

Around the new year, I installed new RAM. Ever since, I have been getting BSOD at various times. I ran memtest86 and it came back clean. Unfortunately I left the old RAM a few thousand miles away so I can't test it with that. I also started playing a couple of more graphics intensive games (Star Trek Online and BFBC2) around that same time. At first, the BSOD would only occur during gameplay. Lately, the games have been running better but I get random blue screens while web browsing about once a week. The ones during games usually said atimpag.sys or dxgmms.sys. The ones during browsing usually say ntfs.sys or fltmgr.sys. ntoskrnl.exe seems to occur with both. I've attached a file with the dmps and some screen shots of cpuz. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

1. These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (`c0000005) (probably a driver).

Memtest ran for how many passes there?

We recommend to leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.
* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have Raid update its Driver.
2. Suggest you run Driver verifier.

Have been experiencing BSOD regularly and occasionally RSOD. It is happening at least once each time I play intensive steam games, most recently Project Cars.
I am not overclocking.
First i though it must be the temp of the CPU or GPU, but the CPU is sitting at 45 deg and GPU is maxing out at 62 deg as i have an aggressive fan mapping to ensure that it was keeping cool.
Have stressed tested memory with memtest86+, CPU with Prime 95 and GPU with FurMark
Windows is up to date.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

A:BSOD while playing hardware intensive steam games

Hi timo,

Welcome to the 8forums.

The level 0 cache of the CPU is causing the problems.
What tests from Prime95 have you performed?

Please make sure your drivers are updated.
Please uninstall ASUS software.
Please make sure your BIOS is set at default settings.

I've had this issue for perhaps 2 weeks or so now, and it only happens while playing an intensive game. What I mean by intensive is basically any game made in the past 2-3 years (perhaps it's ALL games, I only play games made in the 2-3 years). Flash games or indie games with no 3d graphics do not cause the BSOD. I can leave my PC on for days with no BSOD as long as I don't play the games. With games though, it can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours for the BSOD to occur but seemingly it is inevitable.

I'd tell you guys what errors I've had but they seem to vary quite a bit from the 0x00000124 to the 0x0000101.

Please check the attachment for the required info. including my PC descriptions.


Also, I'd like to preface all this by saying that I'm a complete neophyte, so if you could instruct me as if I was a child, I'd greatly appreciate that. Thanks.

While it says hardware it is often a driver or program hanging a CPU that causes it.

Uninstall Daemon Tools and see if the BSOD's stop, upload any additional .dmp files you get( C:\Windows\minidump is the folder they will be in).

There are several bios updates available for your board it would be a good Idea to flash it to the latest> P67 Motherboard Series Manufacturing - ASRock Inc.

Built my PC a little under a year ago, and it was working fine with all games until GTA V was released. Ever since I downloaded the driver that was released at the same time as GTA, I've been experiencing crashes whenever I play games (even games that used to run without issue on high settings such as CS:GO can now cause crashes on the lowest setting) where my screen goes black and the last bit of audio that played repeats rapidly and loudly for a few seconds before stopping, at which point all I can do is manually restart my system.

I can't upload the Rar file with my dump info in it as it's too big for the site by 0.04 Mb, if anyone can advise me on files that are safe to remove from it to lower it's size I can upload it

Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

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.

This has begun happening roughly 1-2 weeks ago, prior to this the system ran flawlessly (never had a BSOD)

The strangest thing is that the BSOD started happening right after a windows update, and an install of MSE (never had it before this)

I have tried many different tests and fixes to try and solve this issue myself, but to no avail.

-Ran Memtest with 2x2Gb 1600 + 2x4Gb 1066 \ no errors
-Removed 2x4Gb 1066 \ no errors
(current modules are 2?2 Corsair DDR3 1600 (installed) / 2?4 G.Skill DDR3 1066 (removed))
-Ran Chkdsk \ complete
-Installed new Heatsink (Speedfan was giving me false temp readings, the CPU temp was not the issue / Current temps are roughly min:36 max:69 per Prime95)
-Several clean installs of various recent video drivers
-Checked PSU connections to hardware
-Cleaned dust from hardware

All-in-all the BSOD issue takes longer after troubleshooting to occur, but still occurs very frequently. I am wondering if my Raidmax 680w PSU is to blame, but I cannot be sure because I have no replacement hardware to test this.

A:BSOD while playing GPU intensive programs, Common 0xC000000D error

I would like to add an additional note here, that now it would seem that when the computer freezes/hangs, the system is still functioning (sounds/keypresses (i know because i had a VoiP program running and it was still working and responding when the screen was black), the system DOES manage to recover the video driver for roughly 1-5 seconds before completely freezing (no sound, frozen screen and requires force restart)

The strange part of this is that when the system prompts me prior to loading windows for the typical Safe Mode, start normally etc. that entire screen is messed up, flashing, going black, and distorted and not properly displaying.

I've been having an issue the past couple months in which I will be playing a game for around 5-10 minutes and then the screen goes black. After this, one of the following occurs:The screen returns, with the game being played not responding (Happens with less intensive games like Minecraft), a message saying the AMD display driver has recovered is displayed in the bottom right corner
The screen remains black until I ctrl + alt + del and force close the application (Steam games such as CS:GO)
The screen flashes between the game, and a black screen, usually consisting of audio loops, and then eventually freezes into a BSOD with the following message: Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed

Hi, I'm having trouble as to what's causing these BSOD's on my computer and how I can fix it.

One of the main things that I've noticed happening that seems to be different is that almost every time that my computer crashes, my video card gets "Error Code 43: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems" and I have to uninstall and reinstall my video card drivers to fix it.

Other than that, I'm somewhat of a novice when it comes to BSOD's and I have a hard time seeing what the problem is. Help would be much appreciated.

This just started happening today. I had no issues of this sort yesterday when I updated my graphics card driver (system information is available through my profile, I made sure to fill that out).

As of about an hour ago, I've had two separate BSODs of the same type while playing a game called Trove (voxel based MMO on Steam) and watching shows on Netflix. I had no BSODs yesterday, or even for the past month, during which I am usually always playing Trove and watching Netflix.

Attached are the two dump files that were generated by the computer, zipped up by the log collector.

Let me know if I need to provide any other information and I'll try to provide it. I may not be available very quickly this week though, as I do work during the day.

Ok, I have read everything I can find and I feel like my head is spinning. I just received a game for my son (Zoo Tycoon 2) we have been playing the demo from the web site and had accidently purchased marine mania and dino digs first. Now I am trying to start it and I don't have the proper graphic card. I have Intel 82810E. The message I get from thier "help menu" says - Intel 82810E - due to limitations with direct X compliance of these graphics chips the game will not start. Driver updates do not resolve issue. Which is true after reading one of the top threads that says to read before posting, I tried all those things and nothing worked. I guess I have to buy or download a new graphic card? I don't know much about computers so my question is - can I find a site, like this one or majorgeeks where I can download a more updated graphic card or is this something that actually has to be purchased and installed in my computer "physically"?

A:BSOD playing too long, watching a video and playing a game or gmod

Hello and welcome foodwrap Mate you mentioned memory management was brought up.

Now two things you can do here is
a) reseat the sticks

b) run a memtest if the reseating doesn't have any effect

You will need to make a bootable disk for the memtest and set the BIOS to boot from the optical drive then insert the memtest disk and Save and > Enter.

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

The machine will boot into the memtest program - no OS is loaded and it will start "testing" the RAM
Now you need to let it run for at least 8 passes unless you start to get red errors straight away.
The test takes quite while and sometimes people run it overnight.

But do the reseat first and have a look to see if any crud is down in the slots. You can take this chance to have a quick once over of the machine for dust etc

See pics for what it will look like when you run the memtest if you have to.

What happens is the whole screen kind of just gets chopped up into squares (sometimes the patterns vary. Sometimes, it's not even a ****ing pattern, just a ****ed up screen) with different colors. It then crashes and attempts to restart but you can't even read the BSOD because the screen is so messed up. Then it will reboot itself but the screen is screwed and if you attempt to run 'windows normally', it will crash and reboot in an endless cycle. I have to start in safe mode, in which there are a bunch of nasty lines that start from left to right on the screen. I can still use the laptop but over time the screens disappear and the screen finally goes back to normal. After this, I can reboot into normal mode. Help!! I can also send pics showing what happens, I just have to play a game and have it crash for me again haha Thanks!
**EDIT** DM Log is up for viewing.. Somebody hellpppp!! I want to play Fallout T . T

A:BSOD when playing games. No specific game, just any game.

I like to mess around with a great little freeware 3d-modeling application called anim8or (www.anim8or.com), but I encounter a problem--3d modeling and especially rendering uses vast amounts of CPU power. I have a 1.6 Ghz pentium 4 in my pc, but still, even with all other programs running, anim8or will freeze up and slow down when I get to high-poly models and/or complicated light setups, and it is limiting the abilities of the program considerably. Now, I would just consider this a limitation of the computer and the program and accept it, but other users of anim8or with similar CPU say that they can do much higher-poly work and do complicated light setups without any considerable slowdown, and certainly no crashing. I tried reinstalling anim8or, that didn't help, and so I've determined I must have too many processes running in the background. Here's whats running:

alg
wcmdmgr
teatimer
symlcsvc
svchost (under user name SYSTEM)
explorer
nvsvc32
NPFMntor
navapsvc
ccEvtMgr
SPBBCSvc
SNDSrvc
ccSetMgr
svchost (under user name LOCAL SERVICE)
svchost (under user name NETWORK SERVICE)

winlogon
csrss
taskmgr
smss
ALUNOTIFY
ccApp
hpcmpmgr
hpwuSchd2
DDCMan
KBD
hpsysdrv
System
System Idle Process

Can I shut down any of these processes temporarily, to free up memory and cpu power? will it help any? I know what some of them are, but most of them I don't.

I'm building a system for someone running AutoCAD and I was wondering if the program is a very graphically demanding application. The machine is going to have 512 MB RAM and I am trying to decide whether or not to use the little 32 MB GeForce 2 I have sitting around or spend 50 bucks and get a cheap 256 MB card. Will the system really need this? I dont know how demanding AutoCAD rendering is. Thanks!

I recently moved my computer into my room and had no problems prior. I tried using my 720p tv as a second monitor, and have had problems with graphics since. Any time I use something like twitch or play a game, my framerate goes haywire and my computer runs slow. Even after disconnecting the second monitor, the problem persists. aside from adding the second monitor, nothing has changed. I'm starting to worry because I don't have a lot of money and cant afford a hardware upgrade or pay a tech guy to try and solve it.

My specs are:

mobo - Asus z97-k
GPU - Gigabyte gtx 970 g1 gaming
CPU - i7 4790k
PSU is rated at 600w
8 gb of ram
1 TB hdd that has no issues of datarate.

Thanks for looking.
 

A:Frame fluctuation on anything moderately graphic intensive

Have you pulled off the side panel and made sure all components are tight?

Wouldn't hurt to R&R the graphics card and all the power supply connectors either.

What's the brand and model of this "600 watt" PSU?

Whenever I am playing a graphic intensive game, such as GTA IV, with my laptop plugged in to its AC power, it lags. However, the instant I remove the power cord from the laptop, the FPS triples and the game runs smoothly. I have already checked my power options and I have Performance mode on. I also checked the advanced settings and everything looked fine in there. How can I diagnose the cause of this problem?
P.S. Kaspersky isn't causing the problem because this problem was occurring before I installed it.

Welcome,
How old is the laptop? If it's under warranty I'd be talking to the manufacturer about the power module. You didn't mention the name or model of the laptop, that too would be helpful.

A:All graphic intensive games lag on AC Power but not on battery

Welcome to TSG!

I remember a similar post about this very issue, can't seem to find it right now though.

From what I can remember;
-Some systems did this by design. (Something to do with how it used the voltage from the power brick versus from the battery. Was kind of like a design flaw in a way.) Can't remember the brand most effected by this design.
-There may be an issue switching GPU's. (If yours has two)
-Could be hidden battery saving features that kick in and disable background tasks, helping game performance.

I don't really know much about the voltage monitor programs but others here do. You might be able to take a reading while on AC and battery power, see if there is a change.

I've been getting these random BSOD for a while now and I can't see any rhyme or reason to them. Its happened when watching videos offline on my hard drive with the wireless off, streaming online stuff, programming, gaming, and even when on a fresh reboot with nothing loaded yet.

I'm getting tired of the constant lost of progress my work suffers. Any help is appreciated.

If so, please disable/remove them safely.

The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.


Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.

Hey guys i don't know what is wrong with my computer. I bought this ASUS notebook about a year ago, and its fantastic, but it appears to be over heating at high altitude? If i play Starcraft 2, Sniper Ghost Warrior 2, or use ANY form of streaming software, my computer shuts down instantly after a little bit. I don't know what it is, Microcenter couldnt tell me either. I have a cooling pad for it. At this altitude, ~7000ft, it does it with any graphic intense things. At denver elevation and lower, i can run furmark on MAX settings and it will never shut down, but if i try to run it up here at ~7000 ft, its done within 10 min. Can anyone help me? I can provide what ever information you need to help me fix this, i leave back for college where this isnt a issue on sunday, but i will be back home this summer and need this fixed.

A:Something with High Altitude? Any Graphic intensive Power ERROR 41

Altitude? Does that matter? I have no idea.

What about heating? Is it getting too hot? Monitor the temps and report back.
