Preferred Solution: Found the cause of my blue screen but unsure on how to proceed

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: Found the cause of my blue screen but unsure on how to proceed

Download BlueScreenView:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html
unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe to run the program.
when scanning is done, go to EDIT - Select All
Go to FILE - SAVE Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all of the content, and paste it into your next reply

Hello ALL
I have ESET security on my sons laptop since last April. It has been scanning at start up and doing what it is supposed to. Recently he started having some breaking up of sound.
The MS jingle at start up and sometimes songs he plays. I thought it prudent to do some scans just to make sure no malware has snuck in.

Updated and did a quick scan with MBAM. Nothing found

Did an ESET smart scan and it listed threats as ?4 infiltrations?.
It stated it could not clean automatically and to pick a manual action.It does not list "clean" as an option

Only actions listed are:

Delete
Or
No action taken

I am reluctant to simply delete theses without getting some outside advise.

Input form BC friends would be appreciated

This is what is listed as found by ESET:

C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\20\4ef244d4-49cf35e6 multiple threats No action

C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\7\124509c7-563d8dc7 a variant of Java/TrojanDownloader.Agent.NDJ trojan No action

Please download and run Temp File Cleaner and then do the following:Please download and run Security Check from HERE, and save it to your Desktop. * Double-click SecurityCheck.exe * Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box. * A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

The easiest and quickest way to try and solve this problem would be to slot other ram in the machine and see what happens. It could be a list of other things but ram wont even take you 5 min.

I am helping an elderly family friend diagnose his computer problems.  He has fallen victim to a fake technical support scam by a company called "Adroit Rescue", and has paid their "fee" for what they claim is a year's worth of technical support.  I have his computer, and it is disconnected from the internet.
 
In looking through the machine, I see that the scam happened on August 7, 2016.  A text document was placed on the desktop, with the title "COMPUTER TECHNICIANS".  Inside, it lists the technician's supposed name and employee ID, the company name and phone number, and a customer ID number.
 
On the day the scam happened, he said received a popup on the screen which froze his computer, then received a phone call from Adroit.  He had no idea how they acquired his phone number.  He also cannot remember how the popup occurred - either by clicking an email link, Facebook link, Microsoft Edge browser ad, etc.  He said they spent an hour on the phone with him.  They did their fake security presentation on the computer screen, and "unlocked" his machine after taking his credit card information over the phone.
 
How do I go about determining exactly what they have done to his machine?
 
By searching the hard drive, I see the following happened on August 7th:
 
-  A folder for ADWCleaner was created.  Its logfile shows removal of the following:

A:Possible ransomware infection - unsure how to proceed

A little more info:  This is a Dell Windows 10 machine - my apologies for not mentioning that in the previous post.  I had previously helped him with the Dell update software a few days earlier, and I remember installing Malwarebytes to scan for any malware as a precaution while looking at his setup.
 
Other things I've discovered:
 
-  It appears that in the process of the scam, the scammer uninstalled Malwarebytes, and downloaded a program called "Support-LogMeInRescue" on August 7th at 2:20 PM.  There is a file named "rescue.info" in the root C: directory.  I opened it with Notepad, but it only showed machine / computer code - no legible text.  The date and time of the rescue.info file is August 7th at 2:21 PM.
 
-  The scammers created a manual restore point labeled "tech123" on August 7th at 2:50 PM (the day of the scam).  There is a previous Windows update restore point from earlier that day - 12:38 PM - labelled as "Critical Update".  They deleted all other restore points.
 
-  They then used ADWcleaner as mentioned previously.  The date is August 7th at 4:40 PM.
 
-  The C:\ Program Files\ Common Files\ directory has a last-modified date of August 7th at 4:21 PM, but I cannot see any files inside which also contain that date.
 
-  I also searched for the date 8/7/2016 in both File Explorer and Event Viewer, and found some interesting things:

Hello Everyone. Been awhile since I've been here. Been able to solve most of the problems I've encountered on my own since my first post in the hallowed halls of the techsupportguy forums.

Alas, I am in some dire need of help for a problem I've been having. I've checked other posts on here as well as other websites, but none of them seems to address my problem specifically, so forgive me if you have to repeat yourselves.

I've been having randoms BSoDs and hard hangs, most notably during gaming and while using browsers, but also less frequently whenever I'm just eating and chatting to a friend. I'll just be sitting there starting at my desktop and a Page Fault error will pop up and the system will lock. These problems have ranged from blue screens describing to page faults to what seems to be the monitor shutting off and going completely black. Can't even shut down the computer by going through alt-f4 or the start menu via macros, so it's not a monitor problem. NOTE: It also crashes in safe mode.

This doesn't happen at all on some days, but on others it seems as if it occurs 5-6 times in a row.

I started by doing a system restore and updating all of my drivers, but it hasn't helped. I thought that I might have some memory problems, so I went ahead and I ran windows memory diagnostic and it reported that there was a hardware problem with my memory. I have not run memtest86 yet, though.

We use Desktop Central to manage our windows updates. I've come across a new error that I have not seen all year. They are telling me it's a Microsoft error and they have no information on it. 
I have a couple of Windows 7 machines that have the following error on multiple updates.
An attempt was made to create more links on a file than the file system supports.

Of the machines having this issue, they're not all the same KB. Using one of the machines as example, it's having this issue with 3 updates.

2019-08 Security Only Quality Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4512486)


Seems like the standard Windows Updates fix's aren't working. Software distribution folder rename, fixit tools, etc. I'm not see this on any of our Windows 10 machines. 
Any idea how to go about resolving this? Reimaging is way at the bottom of the list due to these machines being at remote sites.

Hi everyone! First, here are my laptop and system specs: OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Basic, Service Pack 1, 64 bit Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2330M CPU @ 2.20GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 42 Stepping 7 Processor Count: 4 RAM: 4039 Mb Graphics Card: Mobile Intel(R) HD Graphics, 1795 Mb Hard Drives: C: Total - 431937 MB, Free - 358762 MB; D: Total - 29690 MB, Free - 26465 MB; Motherboard: LENOVO, Base Board Product Name Antivirus: Microsoft Security Essentials, Updated and Enabled

So after my (now uninstalled and expired McAfee) antivirus program detected some threats, I deleted them but got worried about my laptop being infected. After doing some research, I ran SFC, which showed I had some corrupt files that couldn’t be repaired (attached if it will help!)

I didn't know what to do with them, so I backed up my files to an external hard drive, uninstalled McAfee and installed Microsoft Security Essentials (ran it on Full Scan, too), ran both CCleaner and MalwareBytes, and finally, ran CHKDSK in Safe Mode for both the C: drive and the D: drive, hoping these might repair the problems. Now, all this went just fine, reporting no threats, etc., but when I ran SFC again it still shows the same corrupt files, and now I don't know what to do to protect my computer and resume using it more normally

I read that you can fix these corrupted files with a repair installation/inplace upgrade (running setup.exe from the Windows 7 DVD and selecting ‘upgrade’) or run... Read more

I have 6 computers at my office that have all been hit in various ways in the last two weeks, two i have found the vundo trojan and removed it. Did a scan with aswmbr and found nothing else on mine. the computer that i am working on right now i did a scan with malwarebytes and it came up empty, not one thing, which to me seems more than a little suspicious, this computer had lost files and shortcuts were corrupted when this problem started. anyway i did a scan with aswmbr and came up with the following two suspicious files.
Module: c:/windows/System32/drivers/dxgthk.sys
Module: c:/windoes/system32/ntdll.dll

Not being that knowledgeable I am trying to find out how to either make sure these are actually a problem and if so how to fix them. I have 3 other computers that I have had the same results with malwarebytes after they were hit with various signs of a virus or such. So I will be scanning all of those with aswmbr and if need be other programs so I will probably be asking for more help, lol. Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

It's a brand new laptop, and unfortunatly I was in the middle of transfering everything from one computer to another, so I have a lot of data on it that I would be really upset to loose. (Taught myself a good lesson here!) So before I restore back to defaults, is there anything I can try to save my data?

Went I try to restore back using my recovery disks, I'm given to option to restore saving user data, but an error message comes up saying no user data found.

Any help would be appreciated. I would really like to understand why this happened (all my malware/antivirus were up to date and everything scans daily) as my sister has the same laptop, so if it's a hardware fault then she may have this problem later.

Hi

Recently I upgraded my Toshiba Portege R500 laptop from Windows 7 to windows 8 pro. Everything worked fine for almost a month and since last few days I am not able to see login screen, its just blank. Since I am unable to login I cannot access the apps/programs neither I can shut the laptop from Windows 8 via Charm menu or Cntrl+Alt+Del.

I am stuck as I cannot reinstall the OS as when I use power down button on the laptop the machine goes to sleep and on power up I cannot access boot priority screen to change to optical drive.

I am struggling since last few days. I would appreciate suggestion help.

A:No Log in Screen; unable to proceed further

Are you plugged into another monitor through VGA or HDMI?
If so, unplug them and reboot.
When I'm plugged into an external monitor, the login screen tends to be displayed on them instead of the laptop screen, even though everything leading up to the login screen was displayed on the laptop screen.

Such an event has caused great frustration for me in the past. Now I know better! Unplug external screens when booting.

If not, check BIOS to see if it has a preferred primary display adapter. It's a bit of a long shot but check anyway.

Seems to be fine when I'm working offline. But as soon as I connect - it gives me a blue screen in 20 - 30 min. The antivirus monitor found an infection in win_v.dll

If anyone knows what's causing this - please let me know. Will try to post more details for this problem.

I have a one year old all in one pc.I got the harddrive not found 3F0 error.HP support sent technician to my house to replace the harddrive. This obviously came with all new windows. Clean pc.About one one week later I received the same message again.Rang HP support and they said they will resend the technician to replace the harddrive agian as it must have been a faulty harddrive.I just don't believe the harddrive is at fault. The harddrive is brand new and works if you plug the harddrive into another pc. The only thing I had time to install in the week was Norton antivirus software.What else can cause this error?

A user (offsite unfortunately) has called in this morning with a blue screen of death. As he describes it, the error reads that the gdi32.dll is not found. The screen reappears at reboot (right after the Windows XP logo screen) and he is unable to get to his desktop. Different boot options get the same result.

Any ideas on solutions, or even what the cause may be, would be greatly appreciated. I've searched all over and found only one mention of this specific problem, but there was no solution talked about.

Thanks,

about the old xp machine again...
i was browsing through the system folders on my machine and found the following folder
 
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp\HCBackup
 
it contained iCRCReserve.tmp   hcpackage.exe    hcversion.xml  AUStrg(empty folder)  AUCache(folder)
 
i looked up some of these names online and found
 
http://www.threatexpert.com/report.aspx?md5=2399c6f17aaa39ba58bb09aee33bd913
 
 
my system contains the files listed under "file system modifications"-->"files created"
the files 
marked 3, 4 ,5 ,6 ,7 on that list are all present and have same size. they match the file sizes shown there, i did not know how to check the MD5 or SHA-1.
 
does this mean i am infected or are those files quite benign? they may have something to do with trend micro housecall or they might be named to fool me into thinking that. hcpackage.exe says it was produced by a "company" Igor Pavlov.
what is going on here?
thanks
 

A:a few files i found, unsure if this indicates infection. no other signs

excuse me but it's been several days now, can i have some advice on this matter please.

I've already gone ahead and deleted it so I can't refer for the exact name, but reading the filename I wasn't satisfied with just that.

It was a set of two trojans both targeting what was apparently the Malwarebytes setup utility. I believe one read as mbam-setup.exe and the other was mbam-setup[1].exe so it looks legit yet it was flagged as a trojan. Is this the antivirus software being flagged by the virus or is it really the virus under the guise of the software? I'm sure a log will be necessary but I'll wait for someone to advise the appropriate log(s).

EDIT: Well those were the pathnames anyway. The trojan description or whatever that last column was, read something along the lines of PSW.Banker and PSW.Banker5 which I'm GUESSING means it's stealing passwords.

I've rebooted the computer and ran another scan and haven't found anything. I'll edit this topic as necessary until I get a response.

Also, all the windows profiles are sluggish when I have 6GBs worth of ram.

hey... i apologize in advance for my bluntness but i am all out of options and im pulling my hair out. I THINK i have a virus, even though BOTH my malware searches fail to find it. i have a 5 year old dell inspirion b120 running windows xp home edition. i have always had problems with this machine, with all the calls to dell to fix it, and the repeated failure to fix it. i THOUGHT i fixed it, but a few onths later, its showing signs of problems.

it all started when i got one of those adware security center viruses, which i ran malwarevytes and got rid of, or so i thought. The next day or two, it was back, the virus. and again, i removed it. i did this every day for a few weeks. THEN my firefox browser stoped working. Wont load no matter what i try. i system restored it, i rebooted it to last good configuration, uninstall and redownload, i tryed so many fixes, it doesnt work. So i instead started using IE. worhted fine for a few weeks, then IE stoped loading. i cannot run any Browser on it, but I CAN connect to MSN messanger, ventrilo and other things, but if it requires a webpage, i cannot run it.

so i tried a system restore, and i got this blue screen error message:

Have been getting an error message at windows load and after about a week I started getting the blue screen shut down. Hoping you can help!

I am running Windows 7, 64 bit, original OEM version
Age of laptop and system is about 2.5 years.

This error appeared after I did a System Restore for a benign reason (accidentally deleted a program I didn?t want to re-install due to all the tweaking it would require).
Error box after Windows loads:

I attempted another system restore but could only go back as far as the last restore point which was the date I did the restore, above, that caused the problem in the first place.

Then, a week later I began getting the Blue Screen of Death after system runs 15 min to an hour or so:

someone? anyone? running out of time.........===========Hello While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it.We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been...

Windows 7
 
Blue Screen Warning said Windows was Shut Down to prevent further possible damage to my computer. If the first time, it said to just re-boot. I did so and the computer was VERY slow on re-boot but finally I got into Safe mode.
The most recent download prior to Blue Screen shut down was OBIT Malware program. Though I doubt that caused this problem I removed the free program using Revo Uninstaller as I thought maybe OBIT was interferring with Bit Defender or some other security program on my computer (I use Malwarebytes).
 
The real culprit I suspect came when I downloaded some free privacy software and with it came White Smoke toolbar, and a host of annoying add-ons. I carefully deleted or disabled all of these add-ons, and then deleted White Smoke toolbar from Chrome and IE 7, and Firefox. I have not seen any of these programs/viruses/malware reload.
 
A white smoke - screen lockup (delay) did occur while these add-ons were on the computer and I know this is not a good sign.
 
Right now, everything is running well. I ran Malwarebytes and it did find some malware and I removed it; it has not reloaded so far. I ran MB again and it was clean. Ditto SuperAntiSpyWare and Bit Defender.
 
Maybe I am over reacting but thought better safe than sorry...if some worm is onboard I'd like to kill it before it multiplies...but I just do not know based on scans I've run!
 
Right now I am proceeding with caution. Once burned, twice shy. Oh, some of th... Read more

During the process.. First is the summary list.. then turn to a black blank screen for a very very very long period.. next it shows a row of loading bar which in grey colour also for a very long time... After all these only can see the Windows XP Home screen...

Can anyone tell me wat are the possible causes? Really irritating..

Hi, I managed to spill some wine over my personal laptop the other night.... and now cannot get past the black screen which appears when I try to start it up. It's that Windows Error Failure screen, which gives 3 options for starting in Safe Mode and the other option to start normally. The problem is that the poxy enter button is not working so I cannot choose any option.

Any ideas how I can get past this obstacle??

Many Thanks

Daniel

A:Unable to proceed from Black Screen after Liquid Spillage in Laptop

Have you tried connecting a second keyboard via USB?

Also, are you able to access the BIOS (see your system manual for steps to access your BIOS)? Can you boot from a CD/DVD to attempt repairs that way? Obviously, you will still need a return key to actually do the repairs, but it would be helpful to know which keys are damaged.

I recently bought a computer, in december last year
Dell Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU
5130 @2.00GHz
2.00 GHz, 3GB of RAM
Running on Windows XP professional and with an ASUS EAH4350 silent 1GB graphics card and yes all drivers are installed and up to date

The problem i have is that when i turn my computer on it says no devices found and that AHCI BIOS is not installed, and when i am on my computer (mostly when playing games) my screen (which is an Akura 19" LCD TV/DVD combi) goes to blue screen and says 'no signal' and any music that was playing becomes a loud repeated thumping like when a cd gets stuck. The only option i have is to turn the computer off via the on/off button by holding it in until it turns off. After this my computer wont restart for 2-3 tries and instead when i press the on button a small 4 lights up on the front and it makes a 3 second buzzing noise repeated with a second inbetween and does not load up, so i have to turn it off via the button.

Any ideas whats wrong? and what does AHCI BIOS not installed actually mean?
 

A:No devices found, AHCI BIOS not installed, blue screen issues and problems restarting

Do you have a single drive or multiple drives setup in a RAID configuration? The message you are seeing is fine (and normal) if you have no RAID. It usually will just pass it so quickly that you didn't notice it was there. How long have you let the pc set at that error message?

I am running Windows XP on an Nspire laptop purchased just a few months back. I installed Ad Aware, Spybot Search & Destroy, Spyblaster, Zone Alarm, and Windows Defender in addition to the Verizon Security Suite that was currently running in order to find and delete some adware viruses. Spybot was successful and everything was restored to normal for a couple of days until I restarted and got a blue screen error "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and stating that I should disable BIOS memory options. I assumed that I had too many virus scanning programs and firewalls installed so I was able to boot into safe mode as administrator and deleted all of the before mentioned programs except for Windows Defender and Verizon Security Suite which I planned to keep. At restart I received the same blue screen message so I went to the BIOS setup menu to check the memory options and my BIOS menu has extremely limited settings options (Phoenix Trusted Core) which frustrated me and I (stupidly) reset the default settings. Now I was unable to get past the black screen telling me that Windows failed to start normally. So I went to the XP recovery CD and tried recovery and now all I get is a blue screen saying hard drive not found.
This laptop was purchased "Vista ready" but with XP Pro installed by my request. Could the problem possibly be that XP setup is not recognizing the hard drive because I reset the settings to default and now the hard drive is recognizable by Vista but n... Read more

Hi guys, just popped by to say haello as I may be posting lots soon. I will try not to rave but moving to Apple or Linux is getting more and more attractive day by day. Microsoft and Windows of whichever variant sucks!Suffice to say that I cannot log on to my PC as the administrator I once was, I have to use my partners or daughters log on. As soon as I enter my log in details, PC answers. shows my wallpaper screen and shuts down. Though I can find my files, I cannot access them from either account and if I try to open them from my family members accounts, same shut down. I will expand on this as much as I can later.I gave up and tried to load from our Advent 3319 Recovery CD. Recovery screen loads and says "press R" to view recovery options but does not respond to command.Finally, for now?, does anyone know if it is possible to totally erase HDD and reinstall vendors XP as the OEM? Online stuff says I cannot for example use partitioning software because of the way this PC is configured - however, I am sure I have come across one website which suggests that F-Disk can be used in certain circumstances

I have moved your topic to our XP forum. That is assuming that you have XP running. If not, please post back and I will move it to the correct area. The reason I moved it here was because you asked about reformatting and not killing your malware.

I know this has been posted before on these forums, but, the fixes posted were unable to fix my system, so I figured I may as well post MY symptoms and see if I can get some advice.

Ok, so, I recently attempted to install SP3 and restarted my computer when prompted to, and when my pc restarted, all seemed to work ok. The "Professional" word on the boot screen was removed, showing that SP3 had been installed. But, when it loaded past the boot screen, the screen went black and restarted automatically. I disabled automatic restart and then received the blue screen error "STOP: c0000135 winsrv was not found"

First, I followed the instructions on the microsoft kb page which told me to boot into recovery console and try the cd c:\$ntservicepackuninstall$\spuninst method. This did not work, for when I enter that it says "Directory was not found." or something of that sort.

I also tried copying the .dll from the C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386 folder to System32 through recovery console using the command COPY C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386\WINSRV.DLL C:\Windows\System32\WINSRV.DLL. When asked to overwrite, I said yes. It copied succesfully, and I still receive the same error. I tried this again, but first deleted the DLL and then copied it fresh so an overwrite was not needed. Still no success.

Hi.
Laptop screen is badly cracked, needs replacement.
Original laptop is a Compaq Presario CQ61 with a 1 CCFl screen (n156b3-l02 rev.c2). This is with a 30 pin connection and the pink/white backlight cable.
I already have an LED Screen from a dead laptop (LP156WH4 (TL) (N2)). This is with a 40 pin connection and no other external cables.

As it stands right now I have the cable going from inside the laptop proper, splitting in 2, one fork going into the left side of the inverter and the other turning into a flat cable and going into the screen as a 30pin connection. There is also the pink/white backlight cable going into the right side of the inverter.

I'm wondering there is any way to use the LED screen using a 30pin to 40pin converter or possibly to purchase a 40 pin cable outright and ignoring the inverter competely or something along those lines. I simply haven't been able to figure out to what level the laptop is built around using that specific screen.

Thanks in advance.
