Event 6008 unexpected shutdown Win7 Ultimate 64bit

Question: Event 6008 unexpected shutdown Win7 Ultimate 64bit

This has been happening periodically for several weeks It doesn't happen every day so I have been just restarting and continuing on. It seems to happen when the desktop is not even being used. (i.e. middle of the night). Power settings are to never sleep. I've been running core temp because somewhere I saw that it might be related to a thermal event, but that doesn't seem to be the case here. I am not seeing much in the event log other than the event 6008, unexpected shutdown (with no other details). I am not getting bSOD minidumps either in the c:\windows\minidumps folder even though I do have this setup in system security. I've attached the dump files so hope that one of you can help me take a look to see if you can help me to figure it out. The last 6008 was earlier today around 2 AM PDT. Right now I am running chkdsk to see if that turns up anything. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Edit: see updated dump file in post #3

Preferred Solution: Event 6008 unexpected shutdown Win7 Ultimate 64bit

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

There are numerous files missing from your upload, please run the tool again and wait for the files to be gathered then upload

Answer:BSOD - Event ID 6008 Previous Shutdown was Unexpected - need total shutdown

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.

--> http://jcgriff2.com/dbug_logs/_99-db...riff2_.txt.zip


If BSODs persist after driver updates, run the Driver Verifier --> http://jcgriff2.com/driver_verifier.htm

Answer:Freezing because of an unexpected error event id 6008

There are many reasons why a PC " behaves" this way.

These annoying " gliches" may be caused by an overloaded hard drive, overworked CPU, Malware, running 2 AV 's, unnecessary data, Browser addons or you may have unnecessary programs running in the background etc....

* Have you experienced a BSOD?

FYI.

Hoping someone can help me. I am having problems running games. This problem is coming up quite often the last week. During certain games my pc just reboots. No blue screen, just a crash to black screen and a restart following that. I have re-installed my graphics drivers so that shouldn't be the problem right? I ran speccy and mini toolbox as was requested from a user with the same problem a while ago. Thanks for taking a look anyways.

I have been having repeated Unexpected Shutdowns i.e. event id 6008 in the last few months. About 14 in the last 30 days. I have been googling like crazy without being able to figure out a solution.

The problem increased after my system crashed during the middle of a Windows Update few weeks back. When I tried Windows Update again after a few weeks, my system was unusable - became very slow & I had to force restart everytime.

Tried System restore as a first option in Safe Mode, that didnt work.

I downloaded Windows Update System Readiness tool couple of days back, it applied a few fixes & the system is now usable. But it continues to crash at random, & I get the message "Unexpected Shut Down" etc

I looked up minidump files there is nothing for the past few months.

Note this 6008 event happens only when the system is idle, almost never when the system is being used.

Event Viewer info of the last unexpected Shutdown is given below

I was thinking at first that the shutdown may have been due to overheating as my build is ITX and pretty cramped.  Another forum mod suggested I post here to find out whether or not my system is infected, to rule that out, seeing as how I have been running without any AV software.  I was under the impression that if I browsed carefully, I would avoid problems.  I will be getting software after we determine if there is anything wrong; I wanted to keep the PC as close to the state it was in from the time it shut off so i have not installed any or scanned anything as of now.  Please see link to other post for full story.

I have a box that has been running Windows 2008 Enterprise Server stable for over a year. It's the full install, Hyper-V is installed and runs a couple VMs.

Yesterday the machine had an "unexpected shutdown". I looked through the event logs, and the last event (normal event) was logged approximately 30 minutes prior to the shutdown. No MEMORY.DMP or minidump file was created even though those options are enabled, leading me to believe it wasn't a crash.

Basically I have no idea why the machine shut down, and I have no idea where to look as to find out what happened. I am the only one with a login to that machine, the password is very strong and not written down anywhere. It's unlikely someone else was able to log in and shut it down. In addition a message came up during start-up asking to enter a reason for the unexpected shutdown.

The eventlog does have a 6008 error logged saying that: The previous system shutdown at 9:10:14 AM on 1/30/2009 was unexpected.

Any thoughts?

I plug in a flashdrive, scan it, copy a few files, pull it out (it had 3 files on it, never have viruses. Never.). Windows suddenly decides to shutdown. Waited :30 sec, rebooted, logged in and went to Event Viewer>System and filter for 6008 events. Zero, no listings. Can't find anything in the past 20 minutes that looks like a shutdown.

What gives? How can Event Viewer not show the shutdown? How can I find out what the burp was? I've had no issues lately (since a new card in July), Windows has been flawless. I hate it when Windows does something like this and I can't track it down.
Thanks in advance for any interest,

I just rebuilt with a new motherboard, new Intel 6600K, and new RAM. It's assembled on a table top rather than in the case. All other parts are from an earlier build but believed to be in good shape.

I went to sleep about 14 hours ago with my PC still running. I was doing a backup job that would take a few hours, so I just slept.

6 hours later I woke up and notice that the CPU fan is not spinning. Panic. I didn't know if the motherboard had failed, the fan had failed, or even if the PC was running. Nothing displayed on the monitor.

I shut down and rebooted successfully, getting the "Windows did not shut down properly error".

Looking at logs, I see that the backup job completed at 1236 pm and that the Windows shut down at 1237, one minute later. Coincidence? Maybe.

Windows Reliability History gives no info beyond mentioning the unexpected shutdown.

Event Viewer may have more info, but I'm not familiar enough with it to find anything useful.

Do you have any specific help on Event Viewer?

Also interested in any ideas you may have on the cause.

The local power company says there were no failures today in my area.

The PC appears to be working OK for the last 8 hours since I restarted.

The backup job did in fact complete successfully. All files were copied as expected.

I re-ran the backup job to see if the PC would shut down when it finished a second time. It did not.

The new hardware has less than 100 hours of time on it and I need ... Read more

Hi all,

Hope all is well. I just purchased a Toshiba Satellite P855-S520 laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), SP1 already installed and would like to upgrade it Windows 7 Ultimate.

I had already purchased a retail version for Win7 Ultimate before (the full version not the upgrade) and would like to use this for the upgrade.

I looked around the forums for some advice and found some very useful stuff but I would appreciate if someone could help with the following. My apologies if the answers were posted already. Must have missed them.

1. I read about the Windows Anytime Upgrade feature. Will AU work with the full Win7 Ultimate retail key or does it specifically work with an upgrade key?

2. If I use the AU and it is successful, will the new Win7 Ultimate key be converted to an OEM version as well? The full-version retail key I have gives me the right to install this to 3 computers. I do not want to lose this right since I may use it for different computers in the future.

3. Is it better to go for AU or a clean install of Win7?

Since I just purchased the laptop, I have no personal data or programs installed so I do not have to worry about losing data. However Toshiba has certain software installed with the laptop. My understanding of a clean install is that everything will be wiped clean and then necessary software e.g. drivers, etc... need to be installed again. On the other hand, once I upgrade to Ultimate perhaps some of this software will becom... Read more

I hope I'm posting to the correct topic, but I installed win 7 over vista on my HP laptop. The program runs just fine but everytime I just shut the cover from the desktop, without putting it to sleep or shutting down completely, I most times - but not always - get a message when I open it again that says "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown". Sometimes a screen will come up asking if I want to start windows normally or in Safe Mode etc. If I dont do anything it'll start normally, but I usually just tell it to start normally.

Should I not just be closing the computer like that? Should I put it to sleep or something instead? It seems like if it's left for a long length of time it will automatically shut down.

Thanks for any help.

Answer:Unexpected shutdown in win7

Hi Claudia
What are the power options you have? it seems it is set to turn off when you close the cover. It might be something that got messed because of the upgrade from Vista.

We are in the process of encrypting all our hard drives on our laptops. I've done about 20 with no problem but we have one user who we attempted to turn on and got the following message.
"Preparing your drive for BitLocker
An existing drive or unallocated free space on the hard drive will be used to enable BitLocker.

Details
Boot files will be moved to drive D:, which will become the system drive."

Currently C: is the boot drive. Why would it insist on changing that? There is 80 GB or so free on the C: drive.

Here is some related info from a Microsoft website:
“Two partitions are required to run BitLocker because pre-startup authentication and system integrity verification must occur on a separate partition from the encrypted operating system drive. This configuration helps protect the operating system and the information in the encrypted drive. In Windows Vista, the system drive must be 1.5 gigabytes (GB), but in Windows 7 this requirement has been reduced to 100 MB for a default installation. The system drive may also be used to store the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) and other files that may be specific to setup or upgrade programs. Computer manufacturers and enterprise customers can also store system tools or other recovery tools on this drive, which will increase the required size of the system drive. For example, using the system drive to store Windows RE along with the BitLocker startup file will increase the size of the system drive to... Read more

I have a custom built PC that in recent weeks started to shut down unexpectedly as if the power was shut off. This system is connected to a TV via HDMI and used for recording TV from cable and streaming internet video. The Event log shows event 41.

Hello,


First time ever I am posting a thread like this, never thought I would have to.

Anyway, the issue is described below.

Randomly my computer decides to shutdown and restart unexpectedly.

There is no blue screen, it just shut downs and restarts immediately.

I can't really relate the issue to a certain task or running program, it's all so random.

It can occur while browsing the web, watching a film or playing a game.

I have been fixing around with computers for quite some time now and this is my second build.
The components are listed below:

PSU: Corsair Professional Series HX850

CPU: Intel Core i7 2700K @ 3500 MHz

MB: Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD5-B3

RAM: Corsair Dominator 4x4GB 1600 MHz DDR3

GPU: EVGA GTX580 SuperClocked 1536 MB SLi

HDD: Corsair Force Series 3 60GB

HDD: Corsair Force Series 3 120GB

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit Retail

I finished this system about five months ago and it started to act like this since 3 weeks back.

The system is working solid otherwise.

Due to the limited amount of space on the system drive at 60GB I have disabled System Restore.

I have AVG Internet Security 2012 installed along with Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware.

I have tried to update system drivers in order to restore the system stability, which are:

Answer:Event Viewer - Event ID 6008 [Troubleshooting]

Event ID 6008 entries indicate that there was an unexpected shutdown.
Critical thermal event indicates that the problem is related to one of your hardware components not functioning properly that is triggering the computer to shut down.

Check if your CPU is overheating. Also check if the heat sink or fan is functioning properly. If the laptop is under warranty, get in touch with the manufacturer.

If it isn?t, get a good cleaning done for the fan and heat sink with compressed air only if you?re comfortable. Otherwise seek the help of a technician.

In addition, since power supply plays a major role in cooling the computer?s innards check if PSU (Power Supply Unit) is functioning properly.

Other thermal events (depending on your board) can be from the graphics card, bridge chipsets or hard drives.

You may opt to check for third party Thermal Event Monitor software so that you have a brief idea as in what?s triggering the critical thermal event.

Note: Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Third Party Software can be solved. Using Third Party Software is at your own risk.

So, I've nosed around on quite a few forums and web pages to try and figure out why my computer is randomly shutting off and/or rebooting itself. At first i thought it was the hard drive... it was having issues before so my husband and I replaced it and did a fresh install of Windows Vista Ultimate - all SP's are up to date. Well, that didn't fix the problem.

It seems no matter what I am doing, the computer will do what it wants. Sitting on facebook - boom.. screen goes black and computer stops. I have to hit the reset button on the case. Same thing happens if i'm streaming TV from the internet, playing medium-grade graphics video games or just letting it sit idle.

Is it possibly the graphics card? No. The hubby and I swapped it into his computer for a week-long test. He had no issues.

This problem just started about a month ago and I have had Vista since last year. I only re-installed the OS last weekend when i got the new HDD. It wasn't a virus, it wasn't adware...

I can't figure out what the problem is. The even log pulled up the Error 6008 and after a few hours of searching the web and seeing nothing but posts pertaining to ME or 2k3 OS's... I'm loosing patience.

So far i have burned multitude of ISO images to a USB drive, patched all of them with the USB 3.0 drivers, i also did a "UEFI specific bootable usb stick" given my bios is UEFI. No dice there. I then did a multitude of voodoo tricks i found online, includin ripping off my RAM sticks and checking then /w memtest, using all sorts of cmd prompt commands to mess with the drives, and switch the USB stick. Nothing worked.

Also if it's helpful i was initially stuck with the "no drivers found " part where windows did't recognize my usb, but i fixed that with the intel usb 3 patcher.

Also, my windows repair thingy says something about my bootloader, but fails to repair it.

UPDATE 1: Tried to boot with only 1 stick of RAM, didn't work.

After jumping trough multiple hoops, this error here is the last thing that stands in the way of my hapiness.
I hope someone finds a reason for this, thanks in advance!

Is it because the computer iosnt compatible with win7???? is it that i dont have the correct drivers/?? and if so then where do i get them???? please help!

Answer:trying to install win7 64bit ultimate of usb!

I usually let Windows grab them from the MS website during the install. That means being connected to the internet. As long as the drivers are available from MS, no problem.

What drivers is it asking for, specifically?

Do you have the driver disk that came with the PC? If so, put it in the drive and the installer should search for them there.

Question: Event ID 6008

Hey all,

I work for the United States Air Force as a Client Systems Technician stationed in Germany.

I was wondering if you would help me with a little dilemma.

There is a computer here, Dell Precision T7500, and it randomly blue screens about 6 times a day. There is no Stop Error code showing either.

I was thinking maybe it was the way it was plugged in. Here is how it is:

The computer is plugged into a UPS that is new just like the computer, the UPS is plugged into a power converter (Germany is 220V and the UPS is 110V), and that transformer is rated at 1000Watts, and that is plugged into the wall.

Do you think the computer is losing power randomly or the power supply is causing an issue? I'm sure it's not losing power completely obviously because of the blue screen.

Thanks a lot for all your help.

Answer:Event ID 6008

Also, do you think that overheating would be an issue? Would there be anything that would explain to me that the computer is overheating? Thanks again.

About a month ago I built a new pc. Everything was running at great temps(no overclock). I use HW Monitor to look at the temps. I ran Memtest86 for about 3-4hrs with no errors and ran Prime95 for about 6-7hrs and never went above 55C on stock cooling(no failures). In the span of two weeks, I have had three BSODs. All were regarding a file for my video card (atikmpag.sys). I ran driver sweep in safe mode and reinstalled the latest drivers for my card. I checked the reliability report and it keeps giving me errors regarding unexpected shutdown - Event ID 6008. I have no idea what is causing this.

We need both the event iD (6008) and the source (?????). ID 6008 just means an unexpected shutdown. Can be from heat, someone force quitting, or anything else.

Question: event id 6008

I believe that event id 6008 is meant to indicate that the previous shutdown was unexpected. However on my computer it happens at odd times with successful shut downs in between. See the attached. I looked at what was happenning at 9:10:19
on 23rd February and the computer was starting up (successfully) rather than shutting down.

Question: Event ID 6008

Every time I shutdown or restart on boot Event Viewer writes an administrative error in the log "Source: EventLog Event ID: 6008 The previous system shutdown at <time> on <date> was unexpected."

I do of course shut down properly, i.e... Start> Shutdown or Restart.

I've done a good deal of searching but, most of what I've found involves this error following a BSOD/Bug Check which I am not experiencing and after which of course this error would be expected.

I did find this Event ID 6008 is unexpectedly logged to the System event log after you shut down and restart your computer which seems to describe the problem and offers a hotfix but, does not apply to Windows 7. I can find no correlating hotfix for Windows 7.

The computer runs fine. I have no crashes or other problems and shut downs/restarts appear to happen in an orderly fashion. Had I not noticed it in the event log I wouldn't even be thinking about it.

System is a Dell Dimension 8400 3.2 Ghz. P4 w/ 4GB RAM (~3 useable) and ample disk space. Display adapter is an NVIDIA 8400 GS with the latest drivers. All other drivers are up-to-date and BIOS version is the latest available from Dell. Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit.

Basically I'm looking for someone who has a ready solution and short of that I'm inclined to ignore it as it does not appear to effect operation. You know how those red flags in Event Viewer tend to grate.

TIA for taking the time to read my post.

Question: Event ID 6008

Hi,
For the past 3 days each time I start my PC I am seeing an Event Viewer entry 6008 which relates to the PC having shut down unexpectedly (even though it has not). There is also an associated Event 41 which relates to re starting after an unexpected shutdown.

The PC is working properly, and each of the shutdowns have been done via the Power/shutdown option, in other words, the shutdowns were not unexpected.

The only thing I can recall changing was to install the latest nVidia driver about the time this started. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Rob.

I am having issues with my Asus USB-N13 on a Win7 64 bit system. This is a fresh install and the dongle worked before the reinstall. Upon plugging in the device the window pops up stating the driver was unable to be installed. I plugged the device into my PC and it worked without having to download any drivers also a Win7 64 bit Ultimate.

I have tried the below steps with all versions of the driver on the Asus site.
1.0.1.3
1.0.1.2
1.0.0.9
1.0.0.5

Removed unrecognized device via device manager
Reboot computer
Install latest drivers from Asus site. Install looks work as expected. Reboot PC
Device not installed.

I've also tried the "Update Driver Software"option accessed by right clicking the device from Device Manager and using Have Disk then trying each driver file from the above versions.

I have also tried the Browser>>Let Me Pick From a List>>Have Disk and pick the EXACT device (there are multiple that match). They all claim to not be compatible, I try to proceed and I get an error stating the device can't be started.

Should I just try to reinstall windows again?

Answer:Cannot boot my computer from win7 ultimate 64bit

Unplug the XP HD.

Change the BIOS boot order to boot the Win7 HD after DVD drive.

If Win7 won't boot on its own now, boot the Win7 DVD or Repair CD, press Shift F10 at first screen or click through to Recovery Tools list to open a Command Line, mark Win7 partition Active: Partition - Mark as Active
System Repair Disc - Create

Now boot back into DVD Repair console or Repair CD, accept any offered Repair. If Win7 doesn't start, boot back into Repair console, click through to Recovery Tools list to Run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots until Win7 starts. Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

Now power down to plug XP HD back in, boot XP as needed by using the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key which on Intel mobos is F8. This keeps the HD's independent to come and go as you please.

I've had some drama with a corrupted BOOT drive. To cut the story short I need to do a clean install on a brand new HD. I have created a Windows Easy Transfer file on an external drive.

I'm about to format the C: drive and do a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit version. All my applications are still installed on two other drives in the same machine. I had nothing installed on the C: drive. When I transfer my settings back to my C: drive from the MIG file will I still need to re-install all my apps or will it pick them in situ, as I haven't modified any of the other drives?

Answer:Transfer to same machine (Win7 64bit ultimate)

You must reinstall all programs to a newly installed OS because they write registry keys which integrate themselves into the OS until uninstalled, which is also why they should be installed on the same partition with the OS.

You can separate your data out to another partition so if you must reimage Win7 on C because it becomes irreparable, your data is intact, current and waiting on the other partitiion.

I do not recommend Easy Transfer because it can fail and you must try to pry your data out of it. Easier to just drag your User folders to external.

Hi There,

Creating a new thread to summarise my issues and also include a more descriptive title.

As the title says, I am having problems with my Windows 7 64 bit install with the system constantly freezing or generating BSOD.

To troubleshoot I have done the following:

1. Updated all drivers to use the most recent versions (checked with DriverMax)
2. Updated the motherboard BIOS
3. Ran memtest68+ for 16 hours with no issues reported
4. Ran the windows memory test with no issues reported
5. Using verifier - only stressing non-microsoft drivers - obtained freezes and BSOD
6. Using verifier - only stressing microsoft drivers - obtained freezes and BSOD

System is not overclocked and to the best of my ability I have configured the BIOS to match the system requirements yet it seems to crash / BSOD regardless of basic or optomized settings.

What I can replicate

1. When the system crashes / BSOD every time the reboot will get through the initial boot screen then display the message 'Loading operating system'. At this point, I get a single flashing cursor as the system locks. A hard reset then boots up successfully into the Windows boot menu where I 'Start Windows normally'.

2. I cannot seem to run sfc /scannnow if I have my onboard sound enabled? It stops prior to completion with the message 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.'. If I disable onboard sound within the BIOS sfc /scannnow completes without any issues.

I have never installed a new os from start. Do i need to download drivers for my mobo ready for a fresh windows7 install?

Or does it find them automatically on the windows disc? Or online later? I have drivers on disc for all other hardware, but not mobo.

Just confused before I start.

Answer:Installing drivers on new win7 64bit ultimate os

Some drivers are available later form Windows Update, and some are built in. The best practice is to have them downloaded ahead of time, especially your network ones, just in case. I usually throw them on a flash drive and keep them handy for when my OS install is done.

Question: Event Error 6008

I get an Event Error 6008 on my desktop that I personally built. When the weather was cooler the computer ran fine. Now that it is summer time (I live in CA and its about 100 outside and 80ish in the house) it shuts down when I'm running high resource stuff such as games and multi-tasking if I don't use a 6inch room fan to blow are directly into the case. I also got a pretty beefy head sink and fan for the CPU and that didn't solve the problem. Any advice?

Answer:Event Error 6008

it's my guess one component is generating more heat than the others.
First up would be graphics card.
If you can figure out which component is pushing the most heat you can direct your airflow a bit better, beyond that I don't really know.

That message should be automatically generated after any unexpected shutdown/power loss.
 
It's routine, there is no "solution" for the message and, in some cases, the unexpected (by Windows) shutdown should be investigated.

Hi there

I have just purchased 4 gigs of ram to add to my 2 gigs and would like to use it all by re-installing windows 7 ultimate 32bit and when re-installing select 64bit instead of 32bit.I have backed up my hard drive but i do not know how to re-install without the disk?

Please help!

Thanks

Answer:re-installing win7 ultimate from 32bit to 64bit without disk

To install a new OS you must have an install disk. A 32 bit and 64 bit OS are really very different internally. This would mean a clean install as there is no upgrade path from a 32 bit to 64 bit OS. Be aware that you would also need to reinstall all applications and that would require the install media for each one. Installing a 64 bit OS just to access more of your 4 GB RAM is usually more trouble than it is worth.

Hopefully someone here can help me crush this rather annoying bug.
Win7 Ultimate 64bit consistently BSOD during Audio playback (iTunes, WMP, player doesn't matter). I'm starting to think that the drivers for the "Realtek ALC889A" on board the Gigabyte GA-P55-UD4P are just crap.

memtest found nothing wrong with the 8gb installed.

Over all the system runs like a champ until I use anything that uses heavy audio. From Media player, to games, to video playback.

I'm running the latest R2.37 and verified that all other drivers are up to date as well as the motherboards bios (f4).

I'm attaching two minidumps. 112309-22152-01 occurred during WMP playback and 112309-24117-01 during itunes playback.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone,

I recently (> 1 week) built a new PC, and am having some issues.

I have had 8 BSOD's in the last couple of days. They all occurred during moderate usage of the computer. All have occurred during booting up or coming out of sleep mode. I downloaded the latest Mobo BIOS. Double checked most drivers. I have eliminated the PSU, was using a 550w while waiting for the one listed below and encountering the same issue. I eliminated the VGA, I double checked using the integrated VGA on the Mobo and similar problem occurred. I have reformatted after eliminating those possible hardware causes and do not have those dumps, but I will include the 2 new dumps since reformatting.

I did run the MDSched and got 1 error. I discovered that 1 of the 2 sticks of ram was bad. I have 1 stick running the system 2gig and still getting the BSOD's. I have RMA (RAM) replacement on the way.

I have the dumps and was very much hoping someone could help and tell me the name of the driver file that's malfunctioning, if it is one, and i can then either find a replacement driver or at worst a replacement part.

I am OC'ing the RAM as per instruction from Gskill tech support. That is the only thing OC'd. My CPU temp is running cool between 33c to 41c. I do not plan to do any heavy gaming and using just one VGA.

Where did you get the ISO/DVD you're doing the install from; how large a partition are you trying to install to?

If the Windows 7 install disk is one you burned yourself it may be a bad burn and needs to be done again, if so this would be the first thing to try.

Use the free ISO burner at the link below to burn another at a speed of now more than 4x and select to let the program to verify the disk before it finishes.

Windows 7 64 bit. Interacting with Explorer, often as simple as switching to Explorer window and changing focus on a filename. Explorer stops working, generates ID 1000 (see below) and then restarts itself.
Recently installed LibreOffice v 3.6.1.2 and 16-bit Java 6 update 30 (which works with LibreOffice).
I suppose you are going to tell me to uninstall the LO and Java. I'm really hoping for other troubleshooting or diagnostic options. The LO and java setup is for a project of some urgency.

I ran a Virus scan and came up with nothing.. I think it may have a been a Windows update.. but who knows... I know there is a command you can run to trace what Windows is stuck on during shutdown.. again it boots just fine..

Answer:Event ID:6008 Restarts the computer

That is an Event Viewer log message that appears after the system restarts and usually refers to a BSOD.

Please follow these instructions and we'll see if the output yields any clues -

Download these 2 files; save both to My Documents -

- Microsoft SysInternals AutoRuns - http://live.sysinternals.com/autoruns.exe

- System file collection app - http://sysnative.com/0x8/BSOD_XP_v1....iff2_PROD_.exe

Go to My Docs and run the 2nd app. It will run the 1st.

Output = newly created folder in My Docs - TSF_XP_Support

Zip up the entire folder and attach to next post.

Answer:Vista sp2 Event ID:6008 PC Crash Help

NOTE: I have severe eye problems. If I do not respond to your postings, please PM another staff member for assistance.

Perfmon relates only 13% free space on D: drive - this is OK if it's the Recovery drive and you don't use it for anything else.

No memory dumps present in the uploaded files

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) is known to cause BSOD's on Win7 systems - but we don't have a bunch of experience with it on Vista systems. I'd suggest uninstalling it TEMPORARILY, and using this free tool to ensure that the sptd.sys driver is removed from your system: DuplexSecure - FAQ

Other than the above, I'm at a loss to explain your crashes. If you'd like to find out more about it, please try the procedure listed here: Generating a memory dump for a crashing process - Windows 7 Forums

Another option is to:
- backup your data
- use the recovery partition to reinstall Windows on your system (it will wipe out everything!).

Hello there!

I've been having problems with blue screens for a good time with my Desktop and it seems to happen more when the computer is idle. For example: I've been using my notebook a lot and had left the Desktop without use for days, now when I try to use it gets rebooted when I first turn the PC on. Then if I do not use it for some minutes it reboots again.

Thanks for the help in advance!

Answer:Problems with Event ID 1001 and 6008

Most of the BSOD dumps are blaming Avast.

Code:

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for aswSnx.sys

Uninstall Avast using Avast Uninstall Utility. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Report us for any further BSOD after doing it.

Hi,

I have recently encounter computer hangs and sound jammed when im asleep playing music from the computer. After getting help from another forum, i updated on my realtek audio and network drivers and finally, it was the first time that my computer could continue to run after i woke up, continuing playing the music. I wanted to make sure that there would be no more problems so i let it run for another day, just playing music and went to sleep. This morning, again everything was fine so i decide to give it a final run and went out.

However, when i reached home, i found out my computer had hung for about 6 hours with the sound jammed. There are also yellow or pinkish purple squares near to the sides of the monitor during the hang. I restart and took a look at the event viewer and found the following error message:

Hi everyone,

I have encountered hangs and sound jammed while i was playing music and sleeping. It had happened over 4 nights so i decided to find a solution. I explored abit and found out from another forum that i need to update on my driver so i did, updated my realtek audio and network drivers. On the 2 following day, i finally did not encounter anymore hangs and sound jammed while sleeping. The music will just run as per normal. So i decided to let it have a final run and went out. However, when i reached him home, i found out my desktop hanged again, sound jammed, with yellowish and pinkish purple squares near to the sides of the monitor.

SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000007e)
This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem. Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003. This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG. This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG. This will let us see why this breakpoint is
happening.
Arguments:
Arg1: c0000005, The exception code that was not handled

Answer:Event ID 6008 Crashing windows 7

Most times a pc shutting down is due to an over heating issues. I am not saying that is your problem but to eliminate that hypothesis clean out all dust from inside your machine with a can of compressed air. You can get a can of air at your local Walmart. If you have a laptop clean out all air vents on the sides and bottom of your laptop. Keep the laptop elevated off of couch and bed like surfaces. Consider getting a cooling pad.

Hi guys, I have a problem where my PC is set to sleep after an hour although constantly I will return hom/wake up and go to use my computer to have it not wake from sleep. All that will happen is the mouse will illuminate for around 3 seconds and then it will go dead as well as the rest of my computer. Then when I go to switch the PC on by the power button the keyboard will flash only some of the buttons once very quickly then the PC will just not go on unless I remove the plug from the PSU and basically remove all power and start again. I have recently found that if I hold the power button (the setting which would normally shut my PC down when running) the PC will boot but hang at the ASROCK splash screen until I hit reset and then she's away. I have no issues during the use of my PC and this has become a small problem that has reoccured to the point where I am going mad.

Answer:Event 6008: Reoccuring issue with computer

Doing a hard shutdown can result in corrupt files, I would not do this if there is any other option.  Because you have been doing hard shutdowns you should run sfc /scannow.
 
Please run System File Checker
 
The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
 
Click on the Start orb and then type cmd in the Search programs and files box.
 
In the pane above the search box Programs will appear with cmd below it, right click on cmd and choose Run as administrator.
 
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, enter the password, or click Allow.
 
This will open the Elevated Command Prompt, it will look similar to the image below.
 

 
Type in sfc /scannow and then press Enter to start the scan.  Please notice the space between sfc and the /scannow.
 
If the scan finds no integrity  problems the scan will stop.  Type in exit, then press Enter to stop the scan.
 
When the scan is finished please post the log of this scan.
 
To find sfc /scannow log, type cmd in the Search programs and files box. 
 
cmd will appear above the search box under Apps., right click on it and choose Run as administrator, this will open the Elevated Command Prompt.  This will look simlar to the image above.
 
Copy and paste the following in the Elevated Command Prompt, then press Enter.

Hi all,

First time here. I've been reading through lots of issues and resolutions of failed boots.
I think I have a slightly unusual problem because some items aren't working.

I've disconnected all other drives and just have the primary Win7 (ultimate 64bit) drive and DVD drive connected.

The main bootable drive is a GPT drive (3TB and boots).
Issues started when I did a normal restart after seeing RAM usage was high.
Suddenly no booting into Windows - 0xc0000225 - the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

The Win7 repair disc I attempted to create from my work PC (also 64bit, but not ultimate edition) didn't work at all.
The Win7 install disc I inserted works - but the system repair options are unavailable because apparently it's a different version (SP1 through years of updates maybe?) I dunno.

Using SHIFT + F10 I get to the console, from where I've been following other posts' guidance on what to do.

If I go to DISKPART, I can find the 3 partitions on my GPT drive
Partition 1 System 100MB
Partition 2 Reserved 128MB
Partition 3 Primary 2794GB

However, after selecting partition 1 I am unable to mark it active because: "The selected disk is not a fixed MBR disk"

If I list Vol, I can see that Vol0 is the Win7 CD, Vol 1 is drive C formatted as NTFS as one would expect, but Volume 2 (Now selected due to selecting the partition 1) is listed as FAT32? This seems weird. (Also has hidden attribute)

Oh [H] of smart people, help me figure out my first world computer problems - puh-lease

Win 7 ultimate on a custom rig. Running what appears to be a long term stable overclock (via prime95, intel burn, etc.). Pair of SLI'd GTX 670s. It's kept clean, dust free, well maintained. Heats are all in line. Checked for loose cables and cockeyed expansion cards - all clean.

The issue: Over the past couple of months, I click shutdown, it goes into the "shutting down" screen, and it just sits there - forever. Non responsive, I have to hard cycle the power. Interestingly, when I start it back up - it doesn't complain about an incorrect shutdown, so it apparently is doing most of it's shutdown duties (except turning the computer off). This is intermittent - maybe 1 out of every 5 shutdowns. There are no errors or warnings in the event journal either.

I can't figure out for the life of me where to even begin troubleshooting this. I feel like anything could be the culprit from hardware, to overheating, to a crap driver that got installed a few months ago. Generally speaking, my PC is pretty clean compared to most - mostly an OS install, drivers, office, lots of games p) and that's about it.

Where should I begin? Anyone have something similar happen to them? I feel like I should just wipe the drive and do a clean install - but the PC has been otherwise fantasterrific, and it'd be a shame to go through that effort and not fix the problem.

I always shut the laptop down from the start menu. But now when I shut it down for the first time through the "alt+f4"-menu it won't restart. Or rather, it starts but it sounds like the HDD spins down after a second or so and it does not get past the first Lenovo startup screen. I can hit the ESC-key to see the detailed startup screen (with RAM-tests and such) but then nothing more happens. I can't go into BIOS or the boot menu. And it won't boot from a Win7 dvd. Any ideas?

Hi, my computer randomly crashes at various moments. The screens just freeze but the computer keeps running. I have to hard reset every time it crashes. It used to happen very often but after removing drivers and updating them it's way less frequent. It still happens atleast once a day.

When I look at the even viewer I get these error at the moment of the crash, im not really sure what to do with these.

I searched a lot and didn't really find anything useful to fix the problem... Thank you for your time.

Answer:Screens freeze without BSOD, event id 10110 and 6008

Hi TuCkNy.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.

Description:
Crash dump initialization failed!
So there is a chance that it BSODs but crash dumps are not recorded.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Another thing .....

Hi im trying to determine the cause of these reboots and bsods one of my users is having. I know their was one BSOD yesterday caused by "ntoskrnl.exe+14a6f0" which i thought would be a driver issue.

His computer is an ASUS M51AC which appears to not have had any driver updates released by manufacturer since Windows 8.1 and is running Windows 10.

Let me know if you see anything glaring that i could look into.

Answer:Trying to track down cause of seemingly random reboots Event ID 6008

It would be worth running a memory check which would need to be run overnight or longer to complete 8 passes:



Diagnostic Test

 RAM TEST

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums


   Note


MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

Make a photo of the result and post it.

Next you should get the user to update the BIOS there is one slightly newer version (1002) released for the M51AC.

Most of the drivers have been updated by W10 but there are still a few older ones - try to see of the Cisco VPN adapter driver can be updated - it is a particularly old one.

A friends laptop, during boot the screen showed 2 groups of about 10 vertical lines running from top to bottom on the left hand and right hand side of the screen whilst the ACER logo-wallpaper was visible. After booting I changed the VGA drivers to standard VGA and during reboot the problem disappeared. After loading the NVIDIA Drivers update from the Acer website, during the shut-down-restart process I had a BSOD.
Now during boot the screen is lit up but remains blank - with a CD in the CD Drive I can hear the laptop accessing it .
I removed the HDD and placed it in my desktop and this booted up normally. Could this be a Graphics card problem on the laptop or should I reaccess the HDD from desktop and delete the VGA driver files. If yes where and which (on the laptop HDD) could I find these files.
Failing all of the above is a there a "blind way" to access the boot from CD/USB option as I can't even access the BIOS so as to change the boot oprions and reinstall the OS.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
