Hi -

Most of the 11 BSODs list NVIDIA video as the probable cause.

1. Update your NVIDIA video drivers -

Code:

nvlddmkm.sys Tue Mar 16 22:00:40 2010 (4BA037C8)
nvBridge.kmd Tue Mar 16 21:31:37 2010 (4BA030F9)

NVIDIA --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

One of the BSODs had a bugcheck = 0x124 = WHEA = Windows Hardware Error Architecture - potential hardware failure

Info on 0x124 --> http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...-what-try.html

2. Remove Daemon Tools/ Alcohol 120. A driver common to both sptd.sys is known to cause BSODs.

3. Update your ESET installation to v4.2.64.12 --> http://www.eset.com/download

You need device driver updates. Alienware Support sends me to Dell Support -

http://support.dell.com/support/down...nConsent=False

4. Update all device drivers - chipset (NVIDIA & Ricoh), audio, network. DO NOT download the NVIDIA Video driver from Dell - go to NVIDIA Support per step #1 above.

Hi

I have seen many posts on various forums describing similar problems to mine, but no solution. Problem is as follows:

Running Windows Home Premium on HP DX7400 core 2 duo, 2gb memory, Nvidia 8400GS Video Card.

Everything runs perfectly, until I shut down.

I click shutdown and system starts to shut down, BSOD and minidump, then automatically reboots and says it has recovered from an unexpected shutdown.

If I ask it to find a solution it sends me off to some Broadcom Bluetooth driver problem and I have no Bluetooth installed. I did have but its uninstalled with Revo.

I have checked the disks, the memory, updated all Vista Updates and Nvidia drivers, Broadcom Ethernet driver.

Nothing seems to fix the problem. Its totally random. Sometimes it shuts down fine and sometimes not. I had XP on this PC initially and it was fine,

On many of the posts it seems to be only Vista Home Premium users who have this problem, I never see it with Ultimate or Basic Users. I also seems to affect many brands and configs, so it seesm to be a Home Premium problem.

Does anyone know of a fix?

A:BSOD on shutdown then recovers from unexpected shutdown

Please try and Reinstall your Blue tooth Driver that is Installed

I recently purchased an Acer 5740G notebook computer. Windows 7 Home Premium was pre-installed.After only a few weeks of use the machine began to spontaneously reboot. Sometimes this can occur three or more times at intervals of less than 30 minutes and sometimes it can run for more than a day without any observable problem.I have run a thorough chkdsk on the hard drive, run sfc /scannow and five passes of Memtest-86 v3.5. All of these showed no errors or violations. I have also regularly run "Advanced System Care Professional" and "CC Cleaner" (amongst others) to check and repair registry errors, application paths, etc. I can't see any correlation with any application or process. It can happen in the middle of anything I am doing, or when the computer is idle.Below is a copy of the "Hijack This" log and I wonder of it gives any indication of a system or software problem.

For about a week now something strange occasionally happens while I'm using my computer. It suddenly shuts down and reboots completely on it's own.
When it reboots its shows the "Windows was not shut down properly" screen with the "Start windows normally" choice highlighted. I do so and I'm back in business. But I never know when it's going to happen again. Today was the third time during the period I described.
Any idea what's causing these unexpected reboots?
 

A:Unexpected reboots

What version of Windows are you using ? That sounds like a recent version of Windows, like 8 or 10. But you posted in the DOS / other forum? DOS predates Windows 1.0.

Try going into Control Panel > Device Manager and see if there are any yellow icons. If so, see what the error messages says in it's Properties. And try to right click Update the driver.

Last week I installed my new components build up the pc and install a fresh new W7 Ultimate 64bit. After OS I installed gigabyte drivers. In the mean time windows update took place. so may be some drivers were already installed from windows update. Afterwards I installed AVASt home antivirus.

Later I experienced my first reboot, one hour after a BSOD and so on...
For the record there were no overclocking setting
After reading some related posts I did the following:

1. Manual setting for the memory timings 9-9-9-9-24 and voltage 1,65V as stated from corsair
2. BIOS update
3. Uninstall AVAST / install Microsoft Essentials
4. Download latest drivers from gigabyte and install them.

Still facing the same at least one reboot or BSOD daily. It is random and not after specific software/application excecution.

A:Unexpected Reboots[moved from xp]

Hi whizzkid3

I'll let the malware-experts in the Security forums give you their feedback on the log, they have more experience in HJT logs (they'll give their feedback in your thread over there). I don't see anything at first glance.

Once you get a clean-bill of health from our Security experts:

Try changing a setting: right-click "My Computer", select "Properties", then "Advanced", and in the "Startup & Recovery" section - click on "Settings", then in the "System Failure" section - remove the checkmark from the box "Automatically Restart". If a fatal STOP error is occurring, this will let you see it. Copy it down & post it here.

Also check in your Event logs for errors that coincide with the restarts. Go to the Event Viewer to view the logs - it's in the "Administrative Tools" in the Control Panel (in "Performance and Maintenance" if you have Control Panel set to the category view). To view the details of an Event - right-click it and select "Properties".

Best of luck
. . . Gary

... I noticed that you have had many malware scanners active recently -- have any infections been found recently? If not, what symptoms have led to your wish to reinstall?

About once a day my screen suddenly goes black and the computer commences a reboot. I can find no common factor in either what I'm doing at the time or how long the computer has been running; it seems to happen at completely random times. I don't think it is an overheating problem as it has done it, though rarely, soon after the initial boot up. It has never done it twice in a session, even when I've been working for several hours. To my knowledge I don't have any programs that do updates followed by reboots except those that remind me beforehand. I've had the problem for several weeks. Any suggestions please?

I m having trouble diagnosing a problem.
Im using a 3d program on XP. I was experiencing hangups and crashes and when rendering a frame sequence the computer would crash to desktop or sometimes reboot itself or sometimes just say completed when it wasnt done all the frames. IF any ones knows about 3d rendering then you will know that each frame is rendered seperately to make a sequence of completed frames with the color, texture and lighting baked into a single image frame.

I have a feeling it is hardware but it may also be software. or a combination of both.I think it may be hardware because even in WoRD i was having weird things happen like when i went to paste and copy an image to make labels it was pasting the copied image into the cell but it was appearing as a white box only. but if I saved and restarted the program it would then show the correct image file in full color. As soon as I tried to copy and paste the image again it would do a couple correctly but then it would paste these white blank boxes and I would have to restart the program to see them correctly.????weird i know

I have reinstalled the OS to win2000 and that seemed to fixed the hangups and freezes so far when working in the 3D program. But when rendering it rebooted once so far before it was done the sequence. I have turned off the system failure option to reboot when there is a system failure and so far when testing it doesn reboot itself but it will say my render is completed before it gets alll of t...

Friends,

First of all, thanks for being here to offer advice. This problem has been driving me crazy.

About two months ago, my relatively new W7 x64 machine started rebooting without warning. Lately the problem has escalated slightly in that it's also occasionally throwing BSODs, though not all that frequently. Please see the .zip file for all the sordid details. The reboots are the really annoying thing: they seem to have become more frequent recently and can happen three or four times a day now. Sometimes they'll even happen if the login screen isn't touched for ten or fifteen minutes after boot-up.

I started investigating this problem by looking at the minidumps and trying to isolate and remove the more obvious possibilities: a rather elderly Wacom tablet (now uninstalled, though it never caused any trouble before November), a new Lexmark printer (which was added to the system in November, also now uninstalled). The uninstallations have made no difference to the reboots, which continue to happen at unpredictable intervals.

The system is a custom build from Scan in the UK, delivered to me at the end of July '10. The processor is an Intel Core i3 530 2.93Ghz (overclocked to I think 6 Ghz.) on a Gigabyte H55M-UD2H motherboard with 4G of CMX memory, Artic Freezer Pro and Akasa Amberfans. There are two Samsung HDs (500G system drive and 1 T storage drive) and two Optiarc DVDs: everything's in an Antec 300 case with a Corsair 650W PSU. Display adapter is an ATI Radeon HD ... Read more

A:Unexpected Reboots, And Occasional Bsods

Thanks for the dump file, it'll help in narrowing down things. The crash occurred in win32k.sys - a core Windows system file. Although this is where the crash occurred, it's not necessarily the reason for the crash.The parameter c0000005 indicates that the crash occurred due to a memory operation. The actual operation was that it was told to access a memory location that did not exist.The process name that it's associated with is spoolsv.exe. This is the Microsoft Printer Spooler Service and is another critical part of the OS.So, in short, there's a problem with a driver accessing memory that doesn't exist and the print spooler is involved in this. So, I'd suggest uninstalling your printer to see if the BSOD events stop. If they do, then download a new copy of your printer driver from the manufacturer's website and install that.If they don't stop, then it's likely that either remnants of the driver remain (and are causing the BSOD) and need to be removed or that there's a corruption in the Microsoft Printer Spooler Service. If the latter, then we may have to resort to SFC.EXE /SCANNOW or a repair install to correct it.Another option is to enable Driver Verifier (without uninstalling anything), and see if it'll force a BSOD which names the driver (you'd have to perform an analysis of the BSOD event to locate it). To enable Driver Verifier, use this link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/244617Two important points when usi... Read more

My computer is randomly rebooting and I'm getting random error messages saying something has shut down unexpectedly. Sometimes when the computer reboots I get a message telling me "Windows has recovered from a serious error". The last time it did this when the machine rebooted it came up to Check Disk and ran a scan, which found nothing.

I've scanned with MSE, MBAM and SAS. I have a complete ghost of the system from the 30th of December 2010.

This machine was recently cleaned with help from y'all but it still seems to be a little flaky.

Hi,
I have no idea what is going wrong.
The model is an Acer Aspire One netbook (10.1 D270).

After a few minutes, it just reboots. This happened recently.

How can I diagnose the problem?

I can see nothing strange in eventvwr.

I would like to try some diagnosis before I try the shotgun trial-and-error approach (system restore, reinstall windows, change hardware).

memory diagnostic and disk checking (the tools that run with a restart) returned no errors.

Any suggestions?

I understand that I haven't provided much info, but I'm not sure what to provide.

There is no BSOD.

I don't believe a minidump is created either.

Temperature is within expected bounds (no higher than 45)

Also happens in safe mode.

Also, the RAM is not original, I'll try replacing the original chip.

If it turns out to be the RAM, what tool/s should I use to verify its integrity?
Also, there is no CD drive. So I need a USB boot utility if anything but the standard windows test (which I ran only with default settings).

A:Win 7 Starter, unexpected reboots, very quick after startup

Hello Silmeria .... though it is not a BSOD, still I'd suggest you to post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions. The files obtained this way will help us to have a closer look to the issue.

I can't believe that this kind of service exists for free... You must be a very generous group of people!!

I am using a Sony VAIO (VGN-NR498E), with Vista SP1, and Kaspersky Internet Security. KIS has not detected any malware today, although a few days ago, utorrent.exe was identified as "Trojan.generic," and I uninstalled and deleted the file. Additionally, my online banking password was changed last night (There is a small chance that I just forgot what it was, since I've been changing all of my passwords lately.. but I don't believe that is the case). I have only had this loptop for a couple weeks. I got it because my last one was infected with something and I couldn't even start Windows, within only 2 days of it beginning to act funny (I suspected a keylogger)..

Hello, Im new to theese forums, but I bumbed in here while driving down on the google highway, searching answers for my problem.

So, here is the story of my past week.
I decided to update my old computer a bit and ended up buying a SSD for OS, new mobo, new DDR and a new case.
I did a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit on the SSD and formatted the old partition that was for the Windows installation.
There we no errors during the install.
Now during gaming or running BOINC, my PC just reboots, no BSOD or anything, like complete powercut and restart.
This leaves no error message to the event messages, except for an error that Windows was shut down unexpected.
Ive tried a whole lot of tips and tricks.
One interesting thing was that the computer had restarted while running memtest86+ in Windows, I wasnt at my computer while it had happened, so I do not know if it said anything.
Ive completed Disk Check before Windows boot, Ive done sfc /scannow and it completed 100%.
Ive upgraded my BIOS to the ASUS Latest, NVidia drivers updated aswell, ive returned the stocksettings for BIOS, made sure that there is nothing there to OC it automatically.
Seems like something happens during load usually.
Atm my computer is running memtest86+ v4.2 USB Boot, gonna make sure if its the memory problem.
During the test, Id like to hear if anyone has any ideas on what to test next if the memtest doesnt bring up any problems.
Thanks beforehand,

This started 2 days ago and has happened 5 times since then.  There have been no warnings/errors/BSOD, just random shut down as if it was an unplugged desktop (laptop with full charged battery).  After crash, reboots to options of safe mode as system did not shut down properly.
 
The specifics: 
 
This is a Dell Inspiron 5737, only 7 months old
 
OS is Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium
 
Everything is updated
 
I have run all system diagnostic utilities available, including CHKDSK, with no errors reported and no issues anywhere
 
Dell tech support lied to me yesterday and told me they fixed it by unchecking the "Automatically Restart" box under "Startup and Recovery" and telling me it was an issue with a windows update that caused the crashes, yet the same thing happened again this morning, so apparently they didn't fix anything and just installed a couple of Dell optimization programs, each triggered AVG warnings and have since been removed.
 
If anyone can tell me what is going on here and how I can remedy this problem I would greatly appreciate it.
 
Thanks...

Hi

My problems began a while back and I thought I had beaten them but maybe I didn't clean everything as well as I thought.

I frequently run low on hard disk memory on the partition where my OP is located and I have been moving things around between disks to free up space. The PC is often slow and I have presumed that this is a memory problem, however I'm often in the middle of running a program (especially Ad-Aware and Spybot) when the machine reboots spontaneously. I had to run GMER 8-9 times before I got a log.

So herewith my files as instructed:

A:Low memory, slow, frequent unexpected reboots and suspicions that I have a trojan

Hello Snowflake101,

I'm not seeing anything in your logs. If you still require assistance, run this online scan to search for any remnants. It can take some time, so please be patient and allow it to run it's full course:

**Vista users - right click on the IE icon and run as administrator

Using Internet Explorer or Firefox, visit http://www.kaspersky.com/kos/eng/par...avwebscan.html

1. Click Accept, when prompted to download and install the program files and database of malware definitions.


2. To optimize scanning time and produce a more sensible report for review:Close any open programs
Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan

3. Click Run at the Security prompt. The program will then begin downloading and installing and will also update the database. Please be patient as this can take several minutes.Once the update is complete, click on My Computer under the green Scan bar to the left to start the scan.
Once the scan is complete, it will display if your system has been infected. It does not provide an option to clean/disinfect. We only require a report from it.
Do NOT be alarmed by what you see in the report. Many of the finds have likely been quarantined.
Click View scan report at the bottom.

When it happens the screen goes black and then the Lenovo boot logo dislays and the machines starts again. I have already run the full diagnostic scans and everything comes back as healthy.

Hello Bleeping Computer folks, I have a question.
 
When I check Event Viewer, I saw an "Unexpected shutdown" error, although the shutdown was performed properly (using Shut down from the Start button).
 
Can somebody explain this? I use Windows 7 Ultimate.
 
Thank you.

A:Unexpected shutdown?

Unexpected shutdown error messages appear automatically in Event Viewer...anytime that Windows reboots from an unexpected situation...whether the cause be heat, hardware, software, malware or whatever.  Anything that causes an unplanned reboot while working in Windows...will result in this message.  Loss of power to the system will also be among potential causes of this message being noted.
 
I suggest looking at all the other errors reflected in Event Viewer to try to find clues.  Another source would be any data reflecting BSOD situations.

I recently updated Mozilla Firefox (just this week). Ever since, my computer has shut down randomly several times each day, every day since. It is always when I have left it for a while and I come back and it's shut down, waiting for my password to restart. It isn't off, just in restart mode. It shuts off every night when I put it in sleep mode so when I come back in the morning I have to restart instead of just waking it, and it shuts down during the day when it is not in sleep mode. I tried to uninstall the most recent update but it wanted to uninstall Firefox instead. Not sure what to do.

I have a Dell Inspirion about 4 years old, running Windows Vista 32 bit. I use Firefox exclusively although IE is installed. I don't run any complicated programs at all and use Kaspersky for my anti-virus, which seems to work perfectly.

Welcome to TSG.

I would download the latest version of Firefox again, Then uninstall the one that seems to be the problem, and install the newly downloaded version. Something might have gone wrong with the previous update, it happens.

Also, first I would make a "System Restore point" before doing anything.

Hi,

I am using windows 7 ultimate, for the past few days i am getting an unexpected shutdown. I don't know what should be reason. I think there was a problem in BIOS setting was not updated. So i updated BIOS setting also. Please find my system information.

OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
Version 6.1.7600 Build 7600
OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation
System Name ADMIN-PC
System Manufacturer INTEL
System Model DG31PR
System Type X86-based PC
Processor Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5300 @ 2.60GHz, 2600 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)
BIOS Version/Date Intel Corp. PRG3110H.86A.0071.2010.0318.1704, 3/18/2010
SMBIOS Version 2.4

System Directory D:\Windows\system32
Boot Device \Device\HarddiskVolume1

See the highlighted line showing that BIOS setting also updated. What else i need to do to resolve this issue.

In my action center there was one message , please find below ;

Consider BIOS upgrade

Microsoft is unable to determine the exact cause of this error. However, this problem was most likely caused by an error in your computerís random access memory (RAM). RAM is the main internal storage area the computer uses to run programs and store data.
During the crash analysis, we noticed the basic input/output system (BIOS) version on this computer does not match the specifications for the central processing unit (CPU), also known as a processor, that is installed on your computer. This can occur when a newer processor is installed on... Read more

Hi all, I've started to encounter an unexpected shutdown with a brief bluescreen error on my desktop and can't figure out what's causing it. I was hoping someone could help me out with this.

Here are links to the .dmp and .xml files that help describe the problem. If any other information would be helpful, I'd gladly provide it. Thanks!

A:Help with Unexpected Shutdown

Hi there Fobwashed,

Is your computer a desktop or laptop computer? Does your computer shutdown at a certain time or just in random intervals? If your computer is a desktop computer, which I am thinking it is, how much power(watts) are you running? What is the brand/model if your power supply?

From time to time my system (Vista64) shuts down - when IDLE - for no reason.
WIndows restarts and says: Windows recovered for an unexpected shutdown... error report send.

How to debug? Note that the system is idle; only background processes are running.

What I've done sofar:
- Ran extended memory test: no problem
- Disabled power saving settings (as I suspected a problem going into hibernate/sleep). No effect.
- Disabled all "user based processes" as Picasa, Google indexing, CPU-temp watcher etc..
- Removed all USB sticks (no readyboost anymore)

No help. I leave the system idle and 10minutes to 2hours later; bang; shutdown
Note also that the system never chrashed when I'm actually working.

So, not a severe issue but I feel intellectually challenged to get the thing under control.
Any idea's on how to proceed further?
Alfred

A:Unexpected shutdown

Try looking in schedule task. A task may be running when the computer is idle for a time limit.

Try looking in your error logs by;

Left Click on Start Menu.
Right click on Computer and choose manage.
Click on the event viewer.
You now have loads of options to try and pin down what is happening.
Expand the error tab.
Look for things in the last 24 hours.

A:unexpected shutdown

Is Microsoft updates enabled and allowed to download and install updates automatically. Sometimes, it will download em, install em, then bring up a pop up asking you to restart and there's sometimes a time limit within which, if you don't select anything, it will restart itself automatically.

This could be one reason, but it's not very common to come across it.

Hi, I am getting an unexpected shut down last few weeks ago. So, i refer to the GeekBuddy by COMODO. Somehow, the technician found out that my Windows is corrupted. I am not very sure whether he had fixed the problem already or not?

But today, when i was resuming my hibernated computer.. My computer went into BSOD halfway resuming the system, causing the computer to restart by its own.. With the file attached is the .dmp file. Can someone help me on it.

Thanks.
