Q: blue screen error messages at shutdown

I am having major problems with my computer shutting down. I get a blue screen with many different messages. The lastest is 'WDM Driver Error 224, [asapiwzk.sys+4000 a7 F87E3000] I have also had 'memory management' and many others. Anyone understand this?

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: blue screen error messages at shutdown

Hi,

Go to start, control panel, system, hardware, device manager, and look for any area that has a red or yellow driver error flag....update that driver. Especially look in the Audio area for 'WDM Driver Error 224 because that one can be a sound driver issue (as well as other area, I might add).

Hey guys! A couple of things i would like to rectify

Firstly, within the last week my computer has began to produce random blue screens! i do recall experiencing this problems before however this was about 5 months ago and had not happened again until last week. I recently noted one of the blue screen messages which had a section that read

Technical information:

***STOP: 0x0000000C5 (0x00000004, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x80550AE4)

I have also read in certain places that these sort of problems can be driver related however i haven't installed any major software lately.

Secondly, all windows updates that have been available to all elements of Microsoft Office Professional 2003 have been failing on my system for about 7 months. This include updates to the suite itself, Word, Outlook etc. All other updates to the operating system, IE7, WM11 have all been successful.

System Information is as follows:

HP Pavilion t760a
Pentium 4 3.20Ghz
512MB RAM
160GB HD
XP Home Edition SP2
Office Professional 2003

If any more info is required please just provide clear instructions on how to attain it and i will post ASAP!

Hi all,

Starting yesterday my computer would go through startup... while loading the desktop it would crash to blue screen with white text (unfortunately, I can't remember the exact error message). If restarted, it either goes to a blank black screen or back to blue, and I could only get the computer to operate in safe mode with networking. My antivirus software (avast free, malwarebytes)scanned and found no infections.

I have Windows 7, Samsung laptop.

Today, I was able to start the computer normally and am functioning with internet (still acting a little funny), but I am sure something is still not right. I also did a system restore last night, with the same problems (crashing, not starting up).

Any assistance would be highly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

Brit

PS: I (goofily) started a similar topic in the "Windows 7" forum section without knowing this section was down here... Sorry! I tried to delete the topic/post but couldn't. Thanks.

Hello,I will be helping you with your problems. Please be patient while I assist you.Some points for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of us Please do NOT run, install or uninstall any programs, unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability. Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post. Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process. Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Butt...

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.

Hi ottertale1004 and Welcome to BC!
 
Is the bluescreen a permanent issue on normal startup or intermittent? Can you try running Safemode to check on the difference. To start safemode is by tapping F8 on early bootup or splashcreen and while in the Advance Mode, choose safemode. Are there any prior issues before this has started to happen?

Hello. Yesterday, my brother was using the PC, downloading a large file with a program called Internet Download Manager, and at the same time he put in an already-burned VCD disk. He said a little window with a red X came up and sian something about Access Denied, he took it out tried again and thsame, then a Blue Screen appeared, which I didn't get a chance to see. It seems to be mostly all right, but it thinks several random old programs are newly installed, the Firefox history is all weird, it doesn't list things in order, and Firefox itself keeps giving me that screen with a picture of a crossing guard saying that sites like Google don't have valid secure connections or something and that "someone may be impersonating this site".

I don't know why that happened with the disk, all I can think of is that: 1. That Internet Download Manager was something he had just installed yesterday (though it seemed to be downloading all right for some minutes before this happened) and 2. We have slow dial-up and sometimes my PC in general just gets clunky while stuff is downloading.

A:BLUE SCREEN AFTER DISC ERROR MESSAGES

UPDATE: the Firefox history seems to be working normally (though it still thinks certain pages are dated from 2004) , and the random old programs are no longer listed as new.

I have a Dell Precision 380 running XP Pro. In the past couple of weeks from time to time I have been getting the Blue Screen of Death. The error is OX-50. This seems to happen more when my daughter is playing games. I looked around online and found what may be the solution, the video card and or the memory. My video card is ATI firegl V 3100, I updated the drivers and the BIOS. I have 2-512 mb of memory and four slots. Earlier this year I bought 2 extra 512 memory sticks. So I replaced my old memory with the new ones and everything works fine. When I put all 4 memory sticks so I can get 2 GB I get an error message X300 Pro 128mb Bios P/N 113-A33405-100. How do I get the computer to see all the memory? Can memory cause the Blue Screen of Death? Here?s one other thing it seems it?s taking longer to load all the desktop icons.

Where to start--I have a Toshiba laptop running Windows Vista. A few days ago, Symantec Antivirus popped up with a window saying a program was asking permission to run and it gave me the Allow and Don't Allow options. I didn't recognize the program so I clicked "Don't Allow", but as soon as the window shut down it would reopen again immediately. I kept clicking "Don't Allow" and after doing this multiple times it stopped for a bit. However, several minutes later it popped up again when I wasn't expecting it, and unfortunately I was already mid-click right over the "Allow" button and gave this strange program access. I don't recall what it said the program was, but ever since then the computer is suffering MAJOR problems. Symantec basically shut down after several scans of not detecting anything. System Restore on three occasions with different dates selected as far as several months back did not solve the problem. Now, the computer goes to the dreaded blue screen less than five minutes after being booted up.

I now have the computer rebooted in safe mode. I ran Malwarebytes earlier and it detected a "Trojan Dropper". I deleted it, but apparently that didn't help because I restarted the computer out of safe mode and got the blue screen again. The Malwarebytes log had this information about the deleted Trojan Dropper if it helps any: C:\Windows\Temp\tmp0000000147c6a1e44c2ed037.

This problem was caused by an unrecoverable hardware error that caused the operating system to stop functioning.
Troubleshooting
________________________________________

If you have received this error more than once, it could indicate a serious problem with your computer. We recommend that you do the following:
1. Back up your files to avoid data loss in case of a complete hardware failure.
2. Contact the original manufacturer of your computer to determine the specific component which is failing.

Additional technical information

Although we know the problem is caused by a hardware component, the error report does not contain enough information to tell us the specific component. It is likely that the problem is being caused by one of the following computer components:
• Random Access Memory (RAM)
• System board
• Central Processing Unit (CPU)

Hi guys, so I've recently completed my first new build, was very excited about, especially because hardware wise it is a big step up from the pc I've been working on for the past few years. Seeing as it is a new build it didn't have an original OS, I installed Windows 10. A few hours into properly using it for the first time I get the Kernel_security_check_failure blue screen error. After restarting I update all my drivers, everything works for roughly an hour, then I get the driver_irql_not_less_or_equal error. I wasn't entirely sure on how to try to fix that one and last but not least I got the system_service_exception error not too long after that. It's strange because I can boot up the PC just fine and always use it for at least half an hour before the blue screen restarts it. Thanks for the help beforehand.

Hello, I've been having constant blue screen problems for months now. Admittedly I did little to help remedy it because I barely had any use for my computer. Lately however I've found that it's actually starting to worry me.

My knowledge regarding computers is limited, however I'd much rather try to get help online before going as far as taking it to a PC Repair shop. Anyway, regarding the problem: I've looked up a few random things regarding the few errors I was able to make out before it crashed. Typically the most frequent message is "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" however I've also gotten one that says something like "IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". To be honest I don't quite remember the exact wording of the latter.

At one point I tried finding the various STOP 0X codes however it seems to change each time. I tried going to administrative controls and checking out the information from my crash reports. Each one seems to have these files under "Files to describe this problem":

Mini100110-01.dmp
sysdata.xml
Version.txt

The Mini.DMP number varies but it seems that each shut down report I checked had only these files listed as the problems. Granted I haven't checked all of them yet (their are a lot, it can happen up to five or six times before I even access my desktop on a bad day) but that seems to be the one thing all the crash reports share.

I'll do whatever is necessary to try and ... Read more

Every few days I get a blue screen if death error message and have to reboot my computer. The error messages are rarely the same. Today's message was Page_fault-in_nonpaged_area (igdkmd 32.sys), however, as I said, I receive many other messages. I have googled the various messages and the usual advice is to disconnect my various bits of hardware (printer, scanner, external hard drive, router and Inport {for recording from a turntable). I am supposed to see whether the BSOD appears after each piece of hardware is removed. This isn't practical as the errors aren't occurring consistently or every day so I wouldn't easily be able to tell which hardware is causing the problem.



Does anyone have any helpful advice?

My OS is XP2002 home, which run on a Dell Dimension 5100 C. When I boot up, I get a blue screen message, "the type of file system is NTFS. The volume is dirty. CHKDSK is verifying files." This takes hours, of course. The end result is another blue screen error message, "c000021a unknown hard error." So I switched to Safe Mode when I started booting up. Same result, after running CHKDSK. Now I'm doing it in Safe Mode with a network prompt, but I have a feeling the same will happen. I also tried System Restore, but that didn't work either.

Hey mate,

Im not really sure. May be a cluster error or something like that.
I believe you can get another HDD install XP in it, then plug your old hard drive and you will be able to copy the stuff in it. The best thing is to skip the scan I guess. I know that this isnt good, but it looks to me as if you dont have any other option.
Thats what I would do.
As for the place of installing and cost Im not really sure coz Im not in the US.

Hello, We are experiencing multiple BSODs on our new Lenovo m900z All-In-One PCs.  The bug check string is "RDR_FILE_SYSTEM" with bug check code of 0x00000027.  According to BlueScreenView, the files that caused it are mup.sys+967b, ntoskrnl.exe+9bcb4, and rdbss.sys+11ec2.  We have tried backing up to a restore point, updating our drivers, and running onboard diagnostics.   I also updated the audio driver and ran the driver verifier, which eventually gave this blue screen: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AgklKEiGo3kga7nmlmLNHISLFZo.  Using BlueScreenView, I found that it was citing the Intel USB 3.0 extensible host controller driver as the cause of the BSOD.  I uninstalled that driver and reinstalled directly from Lenovo's website.  However, we are still getting BSODs. I also ran a full diagnostics scan, but no hardware failures were found. Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thank you!Original minidump file:  https://www.mediafire.com/?8si7fu04ri15j76System Information:  http://www.mediafire.com/file/7vy2t85jbzuurgl/SystemInfo409.txtDriver View: http://www.mediafire.com/file/d7t3haw390j5k9e/RTA409DriverView.txt

Hoping someone has some ideas. I have a Toshiba Satellite 2410-s185 running XP
When I turn the computer on I get the win XP and then these two error message.........
1. winlogon.exe
c:\windows\system32\KBDUS.Dll
not a valid windows Image
(only option is to click okay)

2. isass.exe
c:\windows\system32\cryptdll.dll
Not a valid windows image

.......then I get a BLUE screen and nothing else. Trying f8 brought me to the same blue screen Anyone have any ideas or should I just reinstall XP, which of course we all hate doing and losing everything.. lanievig
 

A:Toshiba won't boot error messages, blue screen

Hard drive error, or an infestation that has damaged the first four to eight sectors of your hard drive.
Toshiba does not have software for testing the hard drive fitness if it is Toshiba drive, but other drive manufacturers to have drive fitness tests for their own drives.
Since the drive will still turn, you can rescue your data using a mobile drive adapter from Geeks.com or Cyberguys.com, then put the drive into a desktop machine as a slave, then drag and drop to the good drive, then burn to a CD for reinstall.
Then run windows in a Full install mode to see if the drive can be reformatted and Windows reinstalled.
If not, you will need to buy a new hard drive. www.zipzoomfly.com, www.directron.com, and www.tigerdirect.com have very nice prices on mobile 2.5 inch hard drives nowadays.

Hello,
My computer screen turned blue with error messages written all over the screen. The message was that the computer will be shut down. Uninstall any new hardware/software installed etc.
I noted down the following message that appeared at the beginning:

Its a windows 7 Vaio laptop and I installed a new software program a week ago. Everything was fine until now. The blue screen appeared twice and I have to shut down manually. I will be attaching a snap shot taken via cell phone.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Everytime I turn on my desktop I get the blue screen saying a problem has been detected. It then lists these codes. 0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0x80551ae2, 0xb50ef4c0, 0x00000000). Can anyone help me figure out how to get my pc in working order again. I have started in safe made before without any luck at fixing anything. I haven't tried it in months but I'm pretty sure I can't access the internet in it's current screwed up state. Is there a way I can fix it myself or will I have to take the unit in to be repaired. I have a lot of music and pictures that I really would like to be able to get back to using. Again I'm using my laptop now to access the internet so I don't know how I will be able to access it on the pc in question. I was told I should upgrade my memory but I put it off thinking I would just buy a new pc but that's not an option anytime in these hard times. Oh and hello all, this being my first post and all.

Your are trying to install with all 4 sticks of RAM ?
Install only with 2 ,i thinm it should run fine then.
Once Vista is installed , apply the Patch available (from microsoft for 4GB Systems) and then put the other two sticks in.
This should work unless there are some other issues.

If u run a new software it maybe that the driver is not compatible with your Windows XP version or u have a virus which is behind this.
Go to the safe mode (start your computer and press F8..Choose Safe Mode).
Log in as administrator (of course lollll) and then uninstall the program u installed or run a scan of your computer and delete malicious trojans or viruses.
If this does not work try to restore your system to a previous date by using the restore system function.
Good luck

I'm having a weird issue where I get a blue screen error on shutdown. It hasn't occurred while running windows applications. It started happening a few days ago. I believe that day I was setting up drivers for Lib-usb to run a ps3 controller as a joystick. It required me to install microsoft visual C++ 2008 Express edition and of course, the driver itself.

The last couple of days have been pretty busy, I've been doing a lot of work on PC. I believe I also updated my Nvidia drivers to incorporate photoshop CS4's new OpenGL support. That should be about all that I have installed, though.

Here's my system specs, and blue screen report.

Gateway FX 6802 with:
Windows 7 home premium (64 bit)
Intel i7 920 clocked at 2.67ghz(stock speed)
12Gb memory

A:Blue screen error on shutdown

That change is a good possibility for the fault -- as I have seen that particular issue before with that type of ps3 USB controller driver. A system restore would be the easiest fix to test. These can be undone if not helpful.

But some memory dumps might confirm this.

I can run a debugging utility on the dump files if you do this:

1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
2 > navigate to c:\windows\minidump and copy the last few minidump files to that folder. *this assumes 'c' is your boot drive, if it is not, subsitute accordingly
3 > close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.
4 > use the "manage attachments" in the "advanced" reply window to upload that zip file here as an attachment.
If you do not see any minidumps, be sure you are not using any cache cleaner such as CCleaner. Also run sysdm.cpl and select Advanced > Startup and Recovery. Make sure "small memory dump" is the one chosen under "write debugging information" and the location should be %systemroot%\minidump

My computer has begun to act up recently and I'm having trouble diagnosing the exact issue. To begin, I have a Dell Dimension 8400 that is running Windows XP. It is in regular use, but gets routine virus scans, disk cleanups, and defrags.


On to the problem - This past week or so I've started to get the "blue screen of death." I've tried to find out what triggers it, but honestly it can be so random. It's happened before while browsing the internet, while listening to my iTunes, and even when no one was on the computer and no visible programs were running. As for the error message that is actually displayed during the blue screen - I don't have it copied down, but I can direct you to the Microsoft Support page that describes it.
The error occurs at address 0x0000007F and the first argument ends with a D. And sometimes the error address is 0x0000007E, but it most commonly ends with an F.
Link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/137539


I'm also having a problem with bootup. It just started today. Basically, I tried booting up the computer and shortly after the Dell logo, I was greeted by a black screen with a flashing white cursor in the upper left corner of the screen. It was frozen in this state. This happened through about four manual restarts until it finally booted into Windows and during this boot I'm typing this message. I'm not sure if this problem will persist because today is the first day it has happened. I can keep you updated on this issue as the ... Read more

Hi,

I would like to discuss one issue I am facing from past few months:

My machine restarts itself and displays a blue screen which contains any of the message from below:
MEMORY_MANAGMENT
BAD_POOL_HEADER
COM+ system has stopped working

Also, while working it doesn't restart but shows from following messages:
grep.3xe has stopped working
Superfetch has stopped working

I started getting these messages/issues since last 8-10 months only. Previously system was working fine for almost 3 years.

I am worried that if this is some hardware issue, driver issue, windows issue or this is due to some malware/Virus.

It would be great if you can suggest on these.

Many thanks in advance.

Every now and then about 1 time a day while im acutally doing something it will shutdown to blue screen with an ntfs.sys error saying it shutdown to save any damage to my computer.


I have no idea why it does this it just seems random but it never does it while my computer is left on idle or just doing something without me there. What causes these errors?

A:Blue screen error - ntfs.sys shutdown

Hi Douglasfermie...

the errors could be caused by a few things but as ntfs.sys is involved, I think now would be a good time to backup any important data to another hard drive and/or DVD/CD as it could be a sign of a failing hard drive. You could try downloading the hard drive manafacturer's diagnostic tools to perform some indepth scans on the drive to see if it is able to detect any problems.

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.

Ive been having some problems, lately. It started when i installed some updates via microsoft update. I cant recall what i installed. but since that update everytime i try shutdown or put the computer on standby it goes to the blue screen of death and it dhows this message "power state driver failure" or something like that. Anyway ive been searching google for this problem and foun out that this problems cause is written in a minidump file created by windows itself. Ive attached a minidump file and i hope some one will be able to see what the problem is here. BTW, im using a laptop, and a laptop which cant be put on standby isnt a laptop at all, so i really hope you can help me. Ive uploaded the minidump on a rar file, so remember it requires winzip or winrar to extract it and see the minidump file.

About a week ago I noticed my computer became uncharacteristically slow, so I ran a full computer virus scan to check for infections and nothing turned up.

Yesterday I found the culprit of the slow down, it was a process called "system interrupts" it was using 25% of my processor all the time. I came back to my computer an hour or so later to a blue screen that said windows has shutdown to prevent damage.

I restarted my computer in safe mode without networking, and system interrupts is not using more than .1% processor power, so something that gets turned off in safe mode must be the culprit.

After a couple of internet searches it seems that the problem is likely some that one of my hardware drivers is corrupted and needs to be reinstalled.

What I would like to know is how I should check which hardware driver is the culprit?

Also, which drivers should would be a waste of my time to check? i.e. I would assume that the driver for my hard drive is not the culprit as it is still used in safe mode.

By the way this is a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OS

Thanks very much in advance for your help!

Here is our problem: when trying to start Windows XP Home Edition, the following error message appears on a dreaded blue screen:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK/F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer. Technical information: ***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF91CF528, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000)

1. I restarted the computer. The Windows screen did not appear. The blue screen/error message appeared.
2. I attempted to restart in Safe Mode. The Windows screen did not appear. The blue screen/error message appeared.
3. I attempted to disable automatic reboot on system failure. The Windows screen appeared briefly, then the blue screen/error message appeared.
4. I cannot check for viruses, as I cannot get past the blue screen/error message.

System: Dell Dimension 3000 new, WindowsXP with SP2. When I click to turn off computer, it often hangs (perhaps 20% of the time) and an error message appears that says the program is delayed in shutting down, and if I want to end task now, click on that, but I'll lose data. Otherwise click on cancel. this then cycles round and round repeatedly.
I learned that there is a program listed in the title. On one occasion something on the order of <SMax4PNP.> On another occasion <DDE Server.>
What are these programs, what do they do, should I leave them alone, do something else, or what?
Thank you. Geezer77

Hi!

This is my first post, new to this.
My Windows XP SP2 is in Swedish, so bear with me if my translation of error messages are inaccurate!

Lately I've been experiencing error messages very often when logging off/shutting down pc.
They are of the "Please wait, terminating process" kind. The ones where the little process bar fills up while the machine tries to safely exit malfunctioning applications, where you are asked to either click "terminate now" or something else, possibly "abort".

Most commonly, it is the "IEXPLORE" process or "msnmsgr.exe" that triggers this.
However, since I installed and ran a plethora of different anti-spyware/malware/adware programs (Spybot S&D, SUPERAntiSpyware, AdAware, SpywareBlaster & Avira AntiVir), I occasionally get these messages about the processes:
1. "GDI+ Window"
2. "MCI command handling window"

I don't know much about PCs, so I googled about these processes and they seem to be pretty fundamental for the running of the machines' displaying of graphics and multimedia, respectively. I am deeply worried about this.

Last few days, I also had a problem which another user on this forum posted a thread on - My Windows automatic update would start, then freeze at either 18% or 30% for hours.
Disabling autoupdate and trying manually at Windows Update did no good.

These were the updates:

1. Windows Internet Explorer 7.0 för Windows XP
2. (KB929... Read more

Okay, im probably getting a liitle annoying by now, but this is driving me crazy. Tonight i have gotten 4 blue screens and each time a different message comes. The first one was drivers_irql_not_less_or_equal with a stop: 0x000000D1. The second one was a Irql message with a stop: 0x0000000a. The third one was a 0x0000008e and the fourth was a 0x000000e3. Ive been told to look for a driver or file that shows up on the screen but im not seeing any. Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
