Is KB3046795 replaced by KB4338815 or KB4338824?

Q: Is KB3046795 replaced by KB4338815 or KB4338824?

KB3046795 is a hotfix for solving W8.1 and WS12R2 reliability problems on skylake or kabylake processors, including only processor drivers (as shown in the file information
section of KB3046795).

Recently, I noticed that the July cumulative update and the security-only update in order to enhance the security of AMD processors have refreshed the processor driver version. The MU Catalog does not mention whether
KB4338815 and
KB4338824 have replaced KB3046795.

I want to know if the processor driver in the July update includes the patching feature in the previous KB3046795.

My monitor goes black and I am forced to reboot. After rebooting I get a blue screen prompt telling me that i've recovered from a BSOD. I've been monitoring them since October.

In October, I RMA'd my graphics card. Oct 27. You can see that after I got a new GPU, my BSOD's halted... so obviously its the GPU right? if you look at my BSOD dumps the last one is OCT 27, new gpu, and i don't get one until Feb 7.

So on Feb 7 I call up eVGA again and say, ok so my GPU is bad again and I wonder if its something im doing to kill them.

So I am going to get a second RMA and the tech tells me that they received my first card and they ran it for over a hour in a diagnostic app and didn't have a single problem... aka my card was fine...

so i explain my BSOD issues and the tech tells me that it may be a voltage issue and that it may be my power supply... soooooooooo

I goto Tiger Direct down the street and buy a "whatever i can get" thats over 1000 watts supply because I have a 850 watt PSU and obviously its not enough power so i go big... and guess what... My last BSOD dump before the PSU is 3/18 March 18. So new PSU and I don't get a single BSOD until 6/14/2014.

So I have attached "All" of my dumps and all my info with the issues.

My problem is... if its "not" my GPU, why did getting a new one give me no BSOD for 3 months.

my problem is... if its "not" my PSU why did getting a new one march 18 let my PC run ti... Read more

A:BSOD 0x116 (stop error) Replaced GPU, replaced RAM, replaced PSU

Hi Zuriel.

I read your OP. I would suggest you to have an open mind; and dont decide that it is not it. Because during troubleshooting you have to get everything tested.

The BSOD is a stop 0x116. That is an error from the part of the display environment. That means ....
The GPU itself
The display driver
The system temps and dust allocation inside the computer
The hardware parts like GPU fans
Overclocking failure
And etc. I would suggest you to go through a thorough troubleshooting, whatever may be the idea you may have about those.

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.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU, 850 watts you said) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

I have an old U530, but with a recent SS upgrade it was running like new, until the orange battery light on the side started quickly flashing.  The moment the power plug is removed, the machine loses all power and is turned off.I have replaced the battery.I have replaced the motherboard.I have tested with other chargers to ensure that was not the source of the problem. The issue remains.  What else could cause this? Software/firmware?  Other smaller PCBs? Any help would be greatly appretiated.

I have a HTII 713 luggable PC that will not power on. When this problem first started, you would hit the power switch and the power would "stutter" but not come on or make it to post. I upgraded the power supply. It originally had a 460W PSU and I upgraded to an Antec 650W PSU hoping that would cure my ills. Still displaying the same symptoms. I got an exact replacement Intel motherboard (Intel DP965LT) and swapped it out.

Now I get power lights, but no fans, or hard drives spinning up. When I hit the power, the case fans and PSU fan will move just a tick but not spin and this only happens the first time I hit the power switch. I have to wait about a minute or so and try again to get this to even do this much. I've triple checked the power connections and mobo connections.

Any ideas?

I replaced the cpu fan and in the process I removed the cpu from the main board. After reinstalling everything, I can not get the computer to boot up. Is there something I have to do because I remover the cpu or did I screw up someware?

This is going to be a little long but any help would be great. I am trying to fix a AMD Duron 650 machine that died a little while back. My brother was on vacation and when he came home is computer was turned off and would not restart. When I opened the case, the heatsink was filled with dust. I used a can of compressed air to remove all of the dust from the case and heatsink. The computer still would not turn on (not a surprise to me). I figured "well, the processor probably couldn't cool thus it overheated (no burn marks on processor)". After purchasing a used Duron 800 chip and plugging it back in (with new thermal grease) I still got nothing. Back to the store and picked up a motherboard. Plugged it all back in and still nothing fan would spin and stop. So, next what's left of course... PSU. I bought a brand new AMD 350w PSU came home and installed it. Reset CMOS, and pushed power, what do I get ... nothing!!!! I think if I can remember right the processor fan would spin but nothing else. No video, no beeps. Now I am thinking that the video card is bad so I take on out of my other computer and get the same result. I did try the old one in the other computer and it worked. So now I assume that the new motherboard was bad. The guy at the store gave me crap about returning it because I told him he sold me a faulty motherboard. So he pulls out all of his testing equipment and he gets the same result I do. So he gives me a different motherboard. I get home ... Read more

I have the replacement drive installed, and I turn it on and at the dos screen that lists CPU type, Co-processor and all that, it says Pri Master Disk: None (I'm assuming that means it's not seeing the HD) When I then continue past that trying to boot from the Startup Floppy, the CD will spin really fast and I get the message. "Setup cannot install Win98 on your computer. Your computer does not have a hard disk. Your HD is not functioning properly or HD req special device driver." So I quit the install and the system goes to dos prompt: D:\win98> and I type in fdisk and it says no fixed disk present. Does that give you a clue to what I might have done wrong? Thank you so much for your help. Spike

I had the thread CPU usage @ 10 0%. Although it is marked solved I never did figure out so I tried something else. I bought a faster CPU. Motherboard in computer is AMD AM37 Salsa with a 2000+ CPU and 1048 RAM . After lon, long searching I found that this board would support up to a 3200+ CPU. I ordered a 3000+ CPU and removed original then installed new. Powered up tower, PSU fan started, CPU fan started, but thats all. Floppy did not make normal startup self check and screen power button light changed from yellow to green showing it was getting signal, but all that light up on screen was a small 1/4 inch white blinking rectangle upper right corner. Thinking I might have screwed up new CPU I took it back out and reinstalled original 2000+ CPU and now it won't work either. Same exact problem. The place I bought the 3000+ new CPU checked it and said I did not screw it up. It's OK. Now my question. Is there something I needed to do to the settings, BIOS, or what ever of the motherboard to make the computer recconnize or hard drive reconnize the change in CPU? Acts like motherbord is no working to load up anything.

Awhile back my computer started issuing one long beep instead of booting. Nothing would come on screen, it just beeped.

So I was told that long beeps mean memory errors. I switched out the ram but it did no good. I switched out the video card,motherboard and powersupply for good measure, but the damn thing is still beepiong at me.Considering that the Hard Drive and DVD/DVDRW/Floppy Disk should not affect the boot process at all, I have to assume that it's my processor.

However, I wanted to make sure that there wasn't something I was forgetting before I plop down money for a new processor.Could it be anything else?

I just changed the HD in an old PC, a Pentium 2, 333MMX that originally had 6gig HD. I upgraded the ram to 256 recently to speed the thing up, and loaded windows XP. It was working great and running XP no probs at all. It doesn't go online and the kids only use it for games, word, powerpoint etc.

I then decided to upgrade the hard drive for a bigger one. I picked up two used hard-drives from a car boot sale - the guy told us they were both 15 gig. One is a Maxtor 93073U6 (which online research has lead me to believe may actually be 30 gig) and the other is a 10 gig Seagate.

Firstly I tried to install the Maxtor. On initial bootup it listed the Maxtor (so it must have known it was there), and when going into Setup the Maxtor was listed there too. However there was no sign of the actual hard-drive once the computer went through the initial bootup. I tried putting the windows disc in but nothing happened. Could it be there is a problem adding such a large HD to an old machine, or maybe I forgot to do something in the BIOS? Or could it be a jumper setting? We set the jumpers according to the Master setting on this diagram http://www.sunstarco.com/images/dmjumpers.jpg

Secondly I decided to give up on the Maxtor and try installing the Seagate HD instead. Everything seemed to be fine, it loaded immediately and already had windows 98 on it. I decided to upgrade to XP and the beginning of the installation seemed to go fine - near the end of the installation the screen went bl... Read more

I am about to receive and install an HDD replaced under warranty. I have not a Windows 7 image backup but I think I have somewhat out-of-date datafile backups. (How can I tell the backups are generated by Windows 7). The simple question is do I (try to) restore the data before or after reinstalling the programs.
A supplementary problem. I have full backups using Acronis True Image 11 which I now find is incompatible with Windows 7 mainly because of driver issues. Acronis normally allows the extraction of chosen folders and files. Ideally I would like to extract the emails and email addresses, as well as various other data files.
Any advice most welcome

A:Using restore on replaced HHD

Do you have an Acronis Image backup? It should work using the boot disk to reimage the new HD.

If you have any WD or Seagate HD's attached, you can use their free compatible Acronis premium programs from their Support Downloads webpage. The Manual is here as well.

To restore a Win7 file backup, open the Backup center in your newly installed Win7 with the backup files copied over in place.

Hello. Never even had a chance to get PC online and register and found out my asus mobo was faulty. I did installed OEM W7, however. What consequences, if any, do I know face as a result of swapping out mobo's? (activation wise?) I do plan on wiping the HDD drive and reinstalling windows, unless somebody with experience here recommends "not" to do this. The last thing I want to do, is get this thing up and running, fully loaded with all drivers, programs and the such and then have operating issues because I didn't reformat drive, due to the mobo exchange. Also not sure how MS knows that I changed this device, due to the fact that I was never even online. There is nothing dishonest going on here. Plz advise.

A:OEM W7 and replaced mobo

Technically the OEM license is tied to the machine it is first installed/activated on, and would need to be replaced if the system were changed (and at least according to Microsoft's servers, replacing the motherboard constitutes a new system). However, since you are the owner of the system and this is not royalty OEM (in which case they would have dealt with this via token activation already), you will simply have to call Microsoft to re-activate if it does not do so online, and you will be able to use that license again on the same machine (well, minus the motherboard difference, of course ).

My sister bought a new computer from a company, it was a toshiba C660 something or other. It runs windows 7 home premium 64bit. When it first arrived it constantly BSODed, I tried all I could to diagnose the problem but in the end it seemed that getting a new one sent out would be the safest option. There was only a 3 day return window.

There was a massive hassle even getting them to take it back and wanted a refund, but we were told we would get an upgraded model as replacement. So after about two weeks we finally received the product and it is the exact same laptop. Upgraded does not equal fixed. I took pictures of the serial code etc. However, on turning it on I got the recovery screen i.e., start windows in safe mode, safe mode with network etc. I realised they have probably done nothing to it, and it is definitely the same one.

I checked the event view logs to see if it had been turned on and the last time it had been was the day before it was sent away. I phoned up today and asked for them to collect it and for us to be refunded but was told it says it is fixed on their systems and this means we can't return it a second time. I then went on to explain it has never been turned on. She said it had. I said I have proof it hasn't been. She then said but we replaced the memory so that is why it says it has not been switched on. I explained that the hard drive is where the log files are store and so changing memory has no effect.

Just a few weeks before its first anniversary, my P50's FHD LCD started showing a yellow color near the bottom of the screen:   This is a known issue with some LCD screens, that occurs when some of the layers separate inside the panel. There's no software solution, of course, and the panel needs to be replaced. I opened a ticket with my IT department and within three days the screen was replaced under warranty. This is the new screen: The phone photos are pretty bad but you get the picture. I couldn't get the manufacturer's names (old and new). Without any adjustments, though, the new screen looks brighter and with better color reproduction, when compared to the same external monitor, than the old one. Which lets me to believe that the old screen was trash. Sad. D.A.V.

First, I must say that I have never taken one of that model apart.  I am just looking at the service manual.  It looks to me that the charging port is soldered to the motherboard, as you were told.  Sometimes, if you look at the port, you can figure out that it is similar to one on another model and if you can find a damaged motherboard with a good port, you can do an "organ transplant".  Very few shops do that kind of repair.  The shop would need to have a good rework station, the port and spend the time to disassemble and reassemble.  The repair might not be cheaper than the motherboard, but I cannot be sure without examining it.  Sorry.

Toshiba laptop recently returned for service for * occurances of blue screen and also memory dump error messages; toshiba returned laptop w/new sys brd-documented all test cleared, and I used the laptop for for 2 days and on the 3rd day unit did not power up from a/c or battery at all. I have 6 days left on warranty and I have returned the unit for service again. The only lite icons were the wirless and dvd lights, The unit was plugged into a very good surge protector (no problems with power issues for other components connected to same protector. I suspect a greater problem and want to request a replaced laptop of equal value. Your opinon?

A:once replaced sys brd on toshiba

Sounds like Toshiba did not check the laptop thourough enough. Probably something else is defective. I would try to get a replacement if they will do it.

Hello, I hope someone can help me with this ,

I seem to have a problem with on or two drivers.

Can I de-install and replace them ( or it, if it is only one driver ) or will this stop my PC from functioning ?

I know that I can do this by going into the Device Manager, but I know also that there are some drivers that cannot be just reinstalled like that.

Thanks for any help with this issue

A:Drivers need to be replaced

Hello Thelma it depends on what drivers you intend to replace and I for one am not a fan of the Windows feature far better off using the manufacturer's site for them. In general (I find) the drivers when downloaded and installed will auto remove the old one and replace it with the new.
You can of course uninstall the driver in the Control Panel and that it is what I do but I always save drivers to Downloads (I keep that on my desktop) first and it is then simple matter of installing from there if you go wrong they are available for a second try.
As a matter of course I tend to keep most of the drivers for a machine in Downloads ready for use

To get Downloads on the desktop if you are so inclined - Start > type Downloads > right click send to desktop.

I've had my HP Stream Laptop for about a year. About 3 days ago was working on it and instead of shutting it down, I just shut the lid. It was like that for 3 days until now when I turned on my laptop and a strange screen appeared saying something is wrong with my battery and it may need replaced. I know batteries eventually die but I don't use my laptop often, and have only had it for a year. I can only use it when it is plugged in, and it says, "plugged in but not charging". If I un plug it, it immediately shuts off. So I'm just wondering how and why it's like this and how I can fix it?

I'm hoping someone can help.

My parents have a pretty basic emachines PC. The other day it was switched off for the first time in months! Now it won't power up at all, not even a standby light.

I did a little 'research'. From what I read, I gathered the issue could have been a failed PSU. (I am quite certain that it's not the power cables or socket or anything like that). I bought a new PSU and installed it but still no joy.

Is it likely that the motherboard has been wrecked?

If so, am I right in thinking that it's just aswell to get rid and buy a new PC?

Many thanks for any advice.

Sweet x

Hello everyone, I am in urgent need of your help. While making a copy paste from a users profile, a friend of mina accidentally replaced the .pst of my Outlook. Now, I've lost all e-mails from the day the old .pst was recorded, ultil today. Is there any tool that can recover the replaced .pst? I already looked for something to solve this situation on the Internet but I only find recovery tools for deleted messages or corrupted .pst, which is not the situation here. Can you help?

A:Replaced PST. How to recover?

Not to my knowledge either, as you have also found.

As the .pst file hold all emails and attachments, contacts etc it is a high priority for backing up. I do mine daily just in case...

The monitor to my 2002 computer went out awhile ago. It has power but the screen is black - no text, nothing. I hooked up another monitor to the computer and it works fine so I can assume there's nothing wrong with video card, etc., and I used tried power/connection from the working monitor on the old monitor but it still didn't come up. My guess is that all I can do is buy a new monitor or continue to share the working monitor but I thought I'd check here to see if anyone knew what else I might try.

Here's my latest batch of minidumps. Any ideas?

A:Replaced CPU/PSU still get BSODs


Well, to start with, you have a 0x1A error which is described as
"Internal memory management structures are corrupted. To further investigate the cause, a kernel memory dump file is needed."

Another is a 0x24 error.

Wait, let me stop here for a moment. You have all different assorted varieties of errors.

So what we are going to do is the following. Open an elevated command prompt and run this command for each partition you have, changing C each time for the partition:

chkdsk /r C:

Then completely uninstall any antivirus and firewall applications.

Then, open another elevated command prompt and run this in it:

sfc /scannow

These drivers are old and should be Googled and updated to newest possible:

fet6x64 fet6x64.sys Thu Jun 19 07:40:18 2008
speedfan speedfan.sys Sun Sep 24 09:26:48 2006
I'd also check that the Vdimm (Ram voltage) and timings and set correctly for the modules you're using. You can visit the manufacturer's page of the RAM and find the specific model. Then adjust your bios accordingly.

Then run Memtest overnight to see if any errors are shown.


After you've done these things, please post any new bsod dumps and we can look at them to see what else we can do.

Before the PSU failed completely the PC was running slow, it would take ages to boot up but would eventually get there. Once it loaded some programs run fine but some were very slow. For example it would take a while to launch firefox but once it was running the web and relative speed seemed fine.

The PSU eventually failed completey so I have replaced it and now it boots up as it should but is still slow.

I have two HDD's both partitioned. The C drive and the F drive are on the old disk and the Y and the Z are on the newer one.

I took the c/f drive out and run it in as an external hard drive on my laptop and it was fine, i could browse through large jpegs no problems and it was much quicker than when installed in the desk top. The C drive is mainly program files and the f drive is documents etc.

I have run spyware docotor , ad aware, reg mechanic etc and it all seems fine I have inclueded the HJT log below but from my little knowledge it seems ok, I would appreciate your thoughts though.

chk dsk is fine too.

I don't know what to do now, I have disabled the start up progs that aren't necessary etc etc and seem to have tried all the common fixes and have now hit the wall. It just isn't as fast as it used to be and we did do a complete reinstall of windows xp several months ago.

The one thing that might be a problem but I'm not sure is that when I put the new HDD in the information about the pin configuration for master slave etc was a bit amb... Read more

Hey guys today i decided to replace my heatsink. I took the old one off put the new one on, and the i hook my pc up then go to turn it on then nothing happens...

-PC "turn on" like fans start,light are on
-Hard Drive light on case is always on

Now all i see on my monitor is a black screen (like nothings connected)

After this i took my heatsink out to see if it was something with the processer and and went i took the heatsink off, the processer came with it because the thermal paste was sticky. I bent a few pins on my processer but bent them back using the old tweezers and credit card trick.

Thanks alot for any help,


A:Replaced Heatsink now....

If this was the heatsink on the processor did you remove the processor from the computer? If you did remove the processor from the computer it was probably not installed back into the computer properly and might not work right. If replacing the heatsink was there any white paste that sometimes use in between the heatsink and the top of the processor.

Did you remove the processor to clean the white paste off? If you did the processor is probably no good.

Processors are extremely sensitive to ESD = Electro Static Discharge and will burn out jsut with the pins being touched with out you being grounded and what ever was used to clean the paste did not help.

Sometimes there is a little square piece of material on the bottom of the new heatsink or that comes with it. This replaces the white stuff that was used before and the little white square has to be put on the bottom of the heatsink before assembly on top of the processor. Sometimes when the heatsink assembly is placed on top of the processor and clamped down the processor gets cracked and then is no good.

I can practically guarantee that some how the processor is gone south. I hope I am wrong but do not think I am. My best suggestion in this case is to take the computer to a qualified tech and have it checked out this is the best suggestion I can give.

My computer recently stopped wanting to turn on recently so i bought a new power supply but that wasnt the problem. So i did the whole putting the motherboard on top of cardboard and troubleshooting. What happened was i turned the pc on then the 6 pin slots on the graphics card basicly threw sparks and smoke came out so basicly convinced my motherboard was taken out, i tried it without the graphics card. What happens is the cpu fan powers on and stays on running pretty loud. So after i reseated the graphics card but didnt connect the 6 pins and the cpu fan and the gpu fan just runs loudly also without stopping. Now obviously since my graphics card cant even boot up the screen since its broken i want to know if theres a way to find out if anything else is broken or if thats a sign of the motherboard still working fine. What i also saw was when connecting the 6 pin slots on the graphic card the computer wont start the fans on.
