I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: BSOD randomly at idle Playing World Of Tanks

Welcome

Is there any particular reason for using windows xp?

The dump relates to your graphics card and its drivers. The issue of turning off and wont turn back on again is a hardware issue, probably a overheated/dying graphic card.

Does your motherboard have a onboard VGA slot? Connect there and see if this issue persists. What's the age of all the hardware?

Try installing latest video card drivers if possible:

This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem. Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003. This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG. This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG. This will let us see why this breakpoint is
happening.

So far I have had a total of 5 BSODs since I formatted. I was getting them before too, just to clarify. The BCCodes are 0x00000001, 0x0000007f, 0x000000fc, 0x00000001 and 0x00000050. They were caused by two things, ntoskrnl.exe and nvlddmkm.sys. I have only gotten them when World of Tanks is open, I don't have to be playing it, as long as it is open the game either crashes randomly or I get blue screen'd. I have changed Nvidia drivers about 5 times now, ranging from brand new ones to ones from the beginning of the year. I have reset BIOS to default settings which was something suggested, that did nothing. I have also cleaned my computer which also didn't help. There may have been a few other things I tried that I cannot remember.

Hi everyone

I upgraded my video card last year before Christmas with a GeForce GTX 650, in february i also changed my old hdd and added a 1TB WD Blue.

Problems started like two weeks before Easter in which i received BSOD's almost every day and i didn't knew what was the problem. On 2nd day of Easter my old 500 watt Raidmax PSU "died" while i was playing World of Warcraft, so then i thought the PSU was the problem that made BSOD's appear because it was like 4 years old and the new video card was in need of more power. This month on 4th of july i bought a Corsair CX 600 watt PSU, the computer worked normally until two days ago on 29th, in the morning i pushed the power button but only the fans and the power led were on, nothing on monitor, after on/off the pc a few times and on/off the PSU once it finally started. Today same scenario with power up, then i decied to play some World of Tanks, after first fight...like 5-10mins of playing i got BSOD and restard, tryed again and same think happened, also the computer blocked i think twice and i had to reset it and once i saw in bios at cpu temperature all kind of strange numbers.

This is what i saw in Who Crashed:

Hello, mirei.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums !

I did small review of your MiniDump files and problem is making your NVidia Graphic Card driver.

There is a lot of new versions which can fix that BSOD problem.

What you can do :
1. Update your currently Graphic Card drivers.
2. Check your game compatibility with your Graphic Card compatibility.

I will start with only this.
Try this and If you have problem again, we will do some tests.

Trinty.

A:BSOD When Playing Game (World Of Tanks)

You are running an ASUS Product ID (PID) on a MSI board.
This makes your installation counterfeit.
Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.

After every match of world of tanks, I get the aforementioned BSOD. This just started today, I was playing just fine yesterday. It only happens at the end, when I am sent back to the garage. I have not tried any other games.

Hi Soldi, Welcome to Sevenforums!

First off lets get rid of the following:
Daemon Tools
AVG PC Tuneup
DriverUpdate
NCH Software Suite

Uninstall them with Revo Uninstaller (While uninstalling a program, select the "Advanced" option and Select all and delete any file found)
Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

If you are overclocking stop now until we can achieve a stable system.

Your BIOS needs to be updated
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P8Z77-V LE PLUS

At least one BSOD has had some sort of hangup with your graphics driver. You have the latest driver so lets try to uninstall it and reinstall just to see if that helps.

Code:
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for atikmdag.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for atikmdag.sys
atikmdag+0x8248b
Also, check with Razer Synapse, it was the process running when the BSOD occurred.

I would remove this from your PC as I don't believe its necessary. Use Revo as suggested above.

Download the latest driver
MSI USA - Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more

Uninstall the current graphics driver

Clean leftover driver files
Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling

Reboot Windows, Upon reboot windows will load the default graphics driver.

Navigate to where you saved the graphics driver you just downloaded and run it.

All of the dumps are 0x116 VIDEO_TDR_ERROR (Timeout Detection Recovery) which can be down to the driver, heat, power to the card, the PCI slot it's in or a bad card among other things. Your driver isn't the most recent from what I can see so we'll try that first.

Download the latest driver from here and save it to your desktop. Download DDU and follow Display Driver Uninstaller: How to use to remove all traces of your current driver. Reboot and install the downloaded driver.

Long story short built I this computer for crypto-currency mining but couldn't get it stable, now I am trying to play some games on it but it still BSODs. I don't know much about bsod or troubleshooting but from what i remember it always showed up as the same error on the bsod (0ax000001 not sure how many zeros there were after the "x").

Hey guys, I've recently been encountering BSOD while playing graphically intensive games such as World of Tanks in 4k resolution. I thought it might be a temperature issue, so I manually turned up my GPU fan speed to 90% while playing, and my core temp. remained ~50?C. That didnt seem to fix the issue.

My last crash gave me the ol' Stop: 0x00000124

Here is my zip file containing the results of a DM Log Collector.

Edit: My system specs are:
CPU: i7-4790K @ 4.00GHz
MB: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97
GPU: EVGA NVIDIA GForce GTX 780Ti
RAM: 16Gb G.Skill Trident X @ 2400Mhz
OS: Win7
PSU: EVGA 1000P2

A:BSOD playing games in 4k resolution such as World of Tanks 0x00000124

It seems to be overclocked.

Code:
CPUID: "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz"
MaxSpeed: 4000
CurrentSpeed: 4080
And overclocking is one of the most frequent reasons of a stop 0x124 (though not the only reason).

As you are experiencing BSODs, As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings. Then see if it still causing the same BSOD or not. If the BSOD continues to occur, let us know. We will take further attempts to troubleshoot the issue.

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.

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.

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.

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver.

Hi all!

Glad to have found this site, it seems far superior to any other tech site I have seen yet!

I just upgraded my PSU and GPU and am now recieving BSOD screens.

Im rather certain, since I have never seen a BSOD yet, it has to do with something with the ATI drivers but since im only moderately computer savvy, I'll see if I can get better help here.

I noticed shortly after installing the card WoW would freeze and lock up the entire PC. They did say they had issues with Dx11 and newer cards so I figured playing on dx9 option would fix it. Seems to have done the trick so far.

Then last night my PC, when I wasn't around it, had crashed. Again, today, while playing it crashed again.

Im sorry I forgot to copy the exact details it gave but it was c2 and something along the lines of 000000007 and 000000109B

Anyway, here are my zipped files and I look forward to your help!

So I just played world of tanks.
I load in and the game starts, i move around for about for a minute as usual, suddenly sound to my USB Headphones is cut and my monitor says "No connection found, entering sleep mode". THen i tought what the hell and restarted my monitor (didn't notice the absense of sound yet) Still the same. I waited for a little bit, then looked at the lights on my PC, none of them were showing a sign of life. (Power & HDD Activity lights) altrought my fans were still spinning. Then I restarted my PC by holding the power button down and booted into windows right away, no error logs or anything that i can see. No BSOD. Just like a death.

Yeah, that sounds like PSU failing... I would swap in a better quality PSU, ASAP.
I guess I'd a little bit higher on the watts too, 550/600w one.

Visit jonnyguru.com for some good info and reviews of PSUs so you have a reasonable idea what to buy.

If it was motherboard it wouldn't have rebooted .

My last major failure: My last motherboard broke in the middle of playing a stressful MMO, on release day of Rift, and I was playing a different MMO during Rift update, LOL! [my bad luck]

Initially thought it was PSU, but it was the motherboard, was 7 hrs later when I was finally back up running, I had bought all the parts at a local Fry's, but was 2 round trips to get the right diagnosis/parts complete.

Also, make sure to remove old drivers using driver sweeper. Follow all instructions, then install the most recent drivers, nonbeta. I usually download(dont install) the drivers first so they are already there to just install after everything is cleaned by sweeper.

Hi,

I would really appreciate some expert advice. I have done what I can to repair the problem and am now admitting defeat. I've been having random blue screen stops since the day I added itunes match to my itunes account, though I have no idea if there is any relation. For some reason, the Windows system restore only had one prior restore point, and that did not seem to fix the problem. I use the computer mostly for media storage and photo and video work, but occassionally play Civilization on it.

I built this computer nearly 5 years ago and have, over the years, had a few periods where I got BSODs. It turns out that when I originally built it, the heatsink was not seated properly. About a year ago, I added the H50 to my system and things were stable until recently.

To problem solve my current issue, I have run memtest 86 for three passes (about 6 hours) without error. (I also played with RAM timing settings and system voltage settings based on forum posts at the g.skill forum.) I ran prime95 overnight without error. I then figured the problem must be with my graphics card, so yesterday I went out and bought a new graphics card, but that did not fix the problem either.

WhoCrashed suggests the problem is a driver, not hardware, but doesn't say which driver. I've tried turning verifier on, but the system gets unusably slow and (perversely) fails to crash with verifier on. Perhaps I should just wait longer.

Thanks for any and all help and suggestions.

I've been having an issue with blue screens my computer. It has occurred during action- and sound-heavy moments in World of Tanks and Skyrim; there's a freeze, a single tone issues from the speakers, and then the screen displays lines of color before finally bringing up the blue screen.

I had an issue with this previously, contacted my manufacturer, and sent in the computer for a full check diagnostic. They ultimately determined it was an issue with the hard drive and sent me back the computer with that replaced. However, now the blue screens have happened again.

I guess I probably should've posted here from the start.

Welcome to SevenForums.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+





Quote:
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.

Good morning all.

I recently reinstalled World of Tanks on a new laptop i bought, and have noticed one particularly annoying fault in this game.

When the countdown to match start is underway, i can see all the tanks no problem. However, once the match begins and the tanks begin moving, they dissapear! I can still see the shadows underneath the tanks, and when i mouse over where they should be, their outline appears. But for the rest its like invisible tanks.

Does anybody know what may be causing this graphics fault?

The specs for my system are:

windows 7 64bit premium
8gb ram @ 1333mhtz 2x4gb sticks
core i7 @ 2.00ghtz turboboost to 2.90ghtz
Nvidea GT555m with 3gb vRAM
500gb harddrive @ 7200rpm

When i run the game, i run it at 1600x900, and all settings to max. Framerate is good, so i don't think i'm hitting a performance cap.

As far as i know i have directx 11 installed.

I would love to know how to fix this and i greatly appreciate any and all help!

Its my favourite game, please help!

Hi, try disabling triple buffering under graphics settings.
That works for many people

Good luck with the game

I've recently decided that the problem might not just be my ram, so before i upgrade I decided to seek some help. I've had multiple BSOD's while gaming, as well as sitting idle since august 27th (increasing in frequency). Also experiencing crashes during gaming as well as firefox crashes, 2-5 times an hour in fact. Windows 7 professional x64, intel i5 quad core, 4gigs of g.skill ram, 10k rpm velociraptor HD, nVidia geforce 8800gt, the original installed OS on the system, full retail version, Everything is about 2 years old, the video card is around 5 years old I believe, OS was installed a little under 2 years ago.

A:BSoD's playing games, and randomly on Idle, Multiple errors

I did some more digging while waiting on a response. I borrowed a new gpu from a buddy because someone recommended elsewhere that the issue was the gpu ram. The crashes and BSoD's have slowed dramatically in frequency but they are still present. Any help would be appreciated.

I built this computer for a friend of mine (the one under my specs) and he's having trouble with BSOD's. I reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Still problems, so I thought the RAM was going bad. We ran memtest86+ and found an error so I replaced the RAM with the one currently in my profile. He ran memtest again and found 0 errors. He is still having BSOD's mostly IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL on ntoskrnl.sys, tcpip.sys, afd,sys, ks, sys, etc. We reinstalled manufacturer drivers from Asrock and installed the latest catalyst from ATI for the HD 5770. We've done some other troubleshooting: CHKDSK found nothing, hard drive SMART wasn't tripped, had no reallocated sectors. I've disabled everything in BIOS that could cause troubles, Cool n quiet, advanced core calibration, etc. I had him run the BSOD posting tool.

A:BSOD playing games and randomly at idle error 0x000000d1 mostly

MetalSlugXT, try updating the display driver to the latest WHQL.

You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.


During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

Also update the network driver from http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...&GetDown=false.

Also update your wireless USB card's driver. Search for it in http://www.mediatek.com/_en/07_downloads/01_windows.php . In my best guess, it is the cause of most of the crashes.

Let us know the results.

My neighbor got me started on World of Tanks a few months ago and I'm up to 1400 battles so far. It's very addicting and is just the right combination of FPS (no blood or gore), role playing and simulation. The game pace is perfect for me and I'm really enjoying it.

You don't have to have the latest hardware to run the game, but I thought the GTX-650 was fine until I got my new GTX-660 and the difference is simply amazing!

I started playing "World of Tanks" a few months ago and I'm hooked! It's just the right combination of simulation, RPG and FPS for me. No blood and gore, just fun! My son likes it, too, although the gameplay is slower than he's used to. I'm a beta tester for "World of Warplanes", but the controls are a little too difficult for me to master, not that I've mastered World of Tanks... I saw the trailer for "World of Warships" and I'm really looking forward to that one as I spent 9 years in the US Navy. Anyone else here play these games?

I have recently experienced problems with lag spikes during playing this MMO game. The game has indicator showing FPS and ping, which are most of the time acceptable, FPS being about 80, and ping about 40, which enables smooth playing. But every minute or so, my ping goes to 999 for a sec or two and then is back on normal, but during those 2 secs i am completely helpless ingame. FPS never has such issues.
I tried cleaning all background processes like Skype, Dropbox, but couldn't find any problem, i used CCleaner program. I have to add that i had played this game before on same computer and haven't had these lag spikes. Could it be some spyware is occupying bandwith?

P.S. maybe it is relevant to add, i have second comp in house and although he has a little lower performance, that one never displays such lag spike.

So my dad has been playing WOT for a few years now and recently I helped him build a new computer so we could hand-me-down his older one. I built him a computer with: AMD Athlon II 270 3.4ghz CPU, Biostar A780L3G AM3 MB, 2x4GB Kingston Hyper-X 1600 Ram, Antec VP-450 PSU, Sapphire Radeon HD4850. He has been playing just fine on this setup since November 2013 until the last 2 months. WOT shuts down the computer with no BSOD or minidump/log yet consistently while performing the same action (clicking the battle button or spectating while destroyed) never anything else. This can happen the very first time the computer is turned on or after 10 hours of gameplay later, and even some days it doesn't even happen at all. I have ran Furmark and Prime 95 at the same time to see if the PSU is failing and even after a few hours of maximum power consumption it's still stable. This computer is completely stock no OC or OV at all. CPU reaches 62c with P95 large ffts, and GFX reaches 106c with furmark on 1280/1024 (desktop res 1280/1028/ game res 1024/768) 0 fxAA. WOT doesn't use nearly as much power as running both P95 & Furmark separate or together..What can I do?
 

A:Computer shuts down while in World Of Tanks

My first thought would be the pw supply. Antec pw supplies are NOT recommended for any type of gaming [exception the antec hcg or high current gamer] Those are fine for gaming.

What are the voltages under load?

Do you have the problem on any other game?

I believe the max temp for that card is approx 100C so you may be getting close to the max temp. Have you pulled the card and given it a good cleaning with a can of air? Checked that ALL fans in your system are in fact working?

Hi,
I've been getting many BSOD's recently, theyre occuring randomly, when PC is idle or lots of them when playing battlefield 3 (those have been reduced significantly by increasing GPU fan speed to manual 70%).
I've tried:
Cleaning up registry
Cleaning up HDD
Reinstalling GPU drivers with driver sweeper
Swapping out RAM and cleaning it up
Run Furmark stress test - 15 minutes max perf. whole test, no errors
Used win memory check tool - no errors
My Rig:
CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 630 2.8 GHz
GPU: Radeon HD 5850 1 GB
RAM: 4 GB RAM DDR3 (4 modules)
MB: M4A78-EM
PSU: Arctic Cooling Fusion 550
OS: Win 7 Ultimate x64

My PC is cca 2 years old, its currently running on defaults clocks (everything)

Most of my BSOD's are SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION but I've had many others such as:
BSOD REFERENCE_BY_POINTER
BSOD BAD_POOL_HEADER
BSOD BAD_POOL_CALLER
BSOD irql_not_less_or_equal
BSOD page_fault_in_nonpaged_area
BSOD driver irql_not_less_or_equal

Windows 10 ? Black screen when games are started (World of Tanks, War Thunder, World of Ships, Steam Games)


(Info: my sons Computer ? only have internet/Skype Contact with him ? don?t know Computer details)

Up until two days ago my son played all the above games on his computer without any problem.

But one day ago he started to get black screen - and probably freezing ? when trying to start a game. Can only get out of this by using Power button and shutting down.


Firefox/Word.doc/Skype/and such like, work fine (that is - until a game is started)


Got him to check for virus, cleaned up computer, updated Graphic Card driver, did Windows 10 updates!

Despite doing all this, the screen still goes black and freezes when he tries to start a game (never gets game started before this happens, so unable to change any game settings)

As I said all these games worked until two days ago!

As far as I am able to tell ? nothing has been changed since last successfully playing. Just shutting computer down and then starting it again next day (and when the problem started).


So I am at a loss

Does anybody know what the problem is?

thanks

PS I know there is an old thread on this subject but it does not help me at all
