Preferred Solution: BSOD when playing games or playing music

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.)

Update your ATI/AMD display driver.
You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.


During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

So basically my computer has been crashing for about two weeks now. I have just switched from Ultimate 32-bit to 64-bit and they were both clean installs. I was thinking about buying a registry cleaner but i guess ill come to the pros first

Answer:BSOD while watching videos, playing games or music

Hello Vlandor.

Since you are having problems when running something I have to ask you how old the hardware is. I had a similar problem my self not too lobg ago and it ended turning out to be the harddrive that was faulting.

My recommendation would be to run some benchmarking programs to see if you might get some kind of clues that way. Maybe you can find a bench mark that crashes your computer almost instantly compared to the other programs. I would recommend starting of with Prime95 for CPU stress testing and 3DMark for stress testing of your GPU. Please come back and tell us the results when you are done with the two.

Also i have to ask if you did any changes to the computer before these problems started to accur. Also a registry cleaner will not help you if you have tried a clean install of windows.

Daemon Tools/Alcohol %

dtsoftbus01.sys Fri Jan 13 19:45:46 2012 (4F10358A)
Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although we have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions). Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

As an alternative, many people recommend the use of Total Mounter or Magic ISO

Security Software

Right now I cannot see any security software installed on your system, did you have any? removed it for some reason? Uninstallers (removal tools) for common antivirus software. Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes are recommended from a strict BSOD perspective. They do not cause blue screens on the system as other AV products do.

Windows will crash to BSOD after about 10-15 minutes of playing a game, listening to music, or watching video. This started happening about a month ago. Up until then everything was fine. I though I found some people with the same problem when I search on Google, but updating their BIOS fixed their problem, it didn't fix mine.

I have updated all of the drivers I could think of and flashed my BIOS to the newest version on the ECS website (I have an ECS KA3 MVP motherboard). This didn't fix the problem. I also made sure I downloaded the Vista driver from Nvidia for my graphics card. I have also run a Memtest and had not errors, and I ran a video card stability test and everything was fine (didn’t even crash). I checked all of the temperatures on the restart and they are all in normal operating range. Here is what the BSOD says everytime.

Answer:BSOD playing WoW/Playing music, error SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEP

Is there any particular reason that you are not using UEFI or Secure Boot?
In general this model comes with UEFI and Secure Boot enabled.

Have you set the time and time zone on your system? (the flag on your profile says Minnesota, but the time is set to Pacific Daylight time).

The system also comes with a 1 tB HDD, but now has an SSD installed - did you have someone install the SSD and move the operating system for you? (We do this at work quite often - normally we do it by cloning the hard drive to the SSD).

I'd suggest running a memory diagnostic, as one of the memory dumps has an error that is suggestive of memory problems (hardware): Memory Diagnostics You may also want to run the free hardware diagnostics from here: Hardware Diagnostics

Beyond that, I'd suggest visiting the Asus website and updating ALL of the drivers there.
To start with, go by the dates on the drivers in the memory dump that I've listed below.

If all of this doesn't stop the BSOD's, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

Hello sevenforums Community,
since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.
In the last two weeks i always got this message (STOP : 0x00007A (0xFFFF6FC50023598,0xFFFFFFFFC000000E,0x000000002A991880,0xFFFFF8A0046B30BE) ) without a sound and the pc didnt instantly reboot.
But the last days the Blackscreen stayed like 4 second so i couldnt see the error message on it, so i dont know if the error changed but there was this buzzing sound.

I really appreciate help (and sorry for my english skills ^^)

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Hello guys. So here is my issue i dont really know how to specific it further then this still hope it will help.

I have been getting BSOD for a while now and it's getting to the point i cant do a single thing on the computer. I did the config for dumps and so on and ended up with this RAR file with all the info i assume. I mostly get the bluescreen when i try to watch anime etc on googlechrome. It never works it's a matter of seconds before the BSOD comes. But when watching it on other browsers like opera it works just fine "mostly" even there it bluescreens from time to time. And then there is when it's most fatal, Playing onlinegames. Whenever I play online games like World of warcraft, League of Legends, Heroes of Neweart etc etc etc i risk getting bluescreens. It differs very much from game to game how often the bluescreens appear and it seems to not be preformance related since sometimes i play constantly for hours when maxing out games and pushing the computer to it's limits when it comes to frames. And still the bluescreen lies in dorment waiting for a more suitable interrupt for me. From the looks of it the bluescreen is related mostly to my operatingsystem more then commponents after i looked at the dumpfiles via "Bluescreenviewer".

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this and i hope you guys can help me with this. also this is my first post so I maybe did this typical "bad thread", Still i hope this will get me atleast closer to... Read more

Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

Hello all,

I've been having a few problems with my laptop since I bought it. The problem mainly occurs when I'm playing a game (usually xcom: enemy unknown or deus ex HR at the moment) but has occurred when I'm browsing the internet (albeit far less often). The BSODs appear to be random but I'm using a blue tooth mouse and have noticed the BSOD will usually happened if I'm using it. I've also noticed that my laptop screen with black out for a split second on games that are quite graphics intensive for my system.

Its been frustrating me a lot so I reinstalled and fully updated windows 7. The GPU drivers are all up to date also.

I've attached the SF file that is required and would greatly appreciate any help.

Hello, I have a question. My Lenovo Yoga 720 15.6" doesn't overheat, although I've noticed something rather odd. When I play Fifa 17 with the charger plugged in, the fans are very loud and the laptop gets pretty hot. When I play Fifa 17 on battery only (charger not plugged in) the fans are quite silent and the laptop doesn't get hot at all. Why is that? For all I know, I would expect the exact opposite...Thanks in advance!Kind regards,Tijs

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 720 15" : hot when playing games on charger, cool when playing games on battery???

The CPU runs at full speed when it is plugged in and runs more slowly on battery to save power.  Faster = more heat.

HI all. I am new to this so please excuse any errors. I have a P4 3gig, 1gig ram, 256 graphics (or is it 512? Can't remember), 180 gig hard drive pc that I had custom built for me just over a year ago. Since I had it, I have had loads of problems with it. Most have been sorted out by the shop that built it for me (I have had to take it back 6 times in the past year) but this problem persists. Whenever I play a game (be it Rome Total War, Football Manager 2006 or Doom 3!), listen to music on WMP or iTunes, stay on net for a prolonged period of time, look at pictures or movies, then it freezes. I hear a couple of 'beeps' then it freezes. If I press reset, the PC just makes a long beep noise so I need to switch the power off from the back. This happens regularly.

The last time I returned it they appeared to have fixed the problem. They said that it was a heat sink problem. Got it back from the shop and it appeared to be working perfectly, better than it has before. But low and behold, it problem has returned. My 1 year warranty has now ran out and I would like to attempt to fix it myself before going somewhere else and having to pay for it to be fixed. Does/has anyone here have/had the same problem and how did they fix it? Any help you give will be greatfully received.

I'd be having withdrawl symptoms. Does the driver want updating perhaps?, it's listed as a 'SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio' by Analog Devices Inc in device manager. My OS is 98SE. Thanks TR

Answer:Crackling on sound when playing music or games

If it wasn't Crackling a few weeks ago then somthing has changed in your system. Perhaps you have installed a program, or piece of hardware that is conflicting with the sound card. Or, your speakers are finally begining to die on you, or your sound card is dying on you. Could be anything. Work through this checklist for trial and error.1. Check all connections at the back. Make sure there are no loose connections.2. Try a different set of speakers on there to see how they work. If you can, hook up ya hi-fi speakers to it. Through the stereo unit of course.

i am running window 7 home premium 64 bit on my hp probook 4530s recently hp did all of the bios an other updatto my laptop and now whenever i watch a video, listen to music or try to play a game it stutters i've tried updating an downgrading my graphic card driver my sound card the video card is a intel HD graphics 3000

plz help..... before all those updates it was playing just fine... system restore is out of the question cuz it takes up memory on HD so i deleted it

Answer:stuttering while listening to music and playing games

Audio is on a shared IRQ (Interrupt) with a higher priority device. Thus the higher priority device can interrupt the sound if it needs to do something and thus you can get the stuttering. There can be other reasons but this is one to consider.

Uninstalling the sound, restarting the PC and then when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound and sometimes Windows will install it on a different IRQ and help with this problem.

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the sound and then LEFT click "uninstall". DO NOT check the box to also uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC.

I'll just be randomly playing music and all the sudden the volume will get a lot quieter, after awhile it will get normal again, sometimes it will go higher than normal too. This happens when I play a game or music. Usually it lasts about 20 seconds after changing but often it can go high to low to lower in a matter of seconds, this all happens randomly too it's not only happening when my music gets louder or quieter. I checked wires and the volume control center and no bars are moving. It happens on all media players and all games and movies and all sorts of things.

I have Windows XP Home SP1, 2.4 ghz Intel P4 processor, SB Audigy, 1 GB DDR ram, Sapphire Radeon 9700 Pro 128 mb. Any help will be MAJORLY appreciated, as this problem really makes doing anything involving sound on my PC sound like crap.

Hi,

Earlier this year, I came to this forum to get help for a BSOD problem. I found out that it was caused by my onboard soundcard which I have now replaced with a seperate soundcard from Icidu (PCI 7.1 Soundcard Optical S/PDIF In & Out - Soundcard - Audio).

I have tried several soundcards but I cannot fix this crackling sound issue. It mostly occurs whenever something is loading it seems, in soundcloud tracks for instance. Also, the windows startup sound sounds like yanking a cat in its tail. The driver IS up to date, there is no cpu throttling and the sound card itself is fine - there are no problems in linux.

Just for the record, here are my specs:

Answer:Crackling sound while playing music, games etc.

Check any cables connected to speakers/headphones, both ends. While playing some music gently twist the ends & move them slightly in & out. See it there is any difference.

Edit - forget that. Just saw it is OK in Linux. Although...............

It's been a while since I last had this problem. I had it last a few months back when I only had 1gb RAM. I switch to 2x1gb and the problem disappeared. Yesterday I ran a repair install of XP and now I'm having the problem again. When watching a video, listening to music or playing a game I get 1 second skips at random times. It doesn't matter the game or player as it happens in all of them. I ran a process monitor and when the skips occurred there wasn't anything going on. I can only assume there's a Windows process causing this since it didn't start until after a reinstall. Anybody have any ideas? I'm sure someone's had a similar problem. Thanks!

Hello, I've been having problems for quite some time now and upon google search after search there doesn't seem to be an answer. When the audio is on, for videos, games, music, etc. it sometimes "skips" like an old cd player. Its pretty obnoxious, and I'm wondering why exactly this is so. I'm assuming I have an old driver or something, because I upgraded my pc from win 7 to win 8 pro. Thanks for the help and let me know if anyone needs clarification!

Answer:Jittery sound when playing music/video games (Win 8 Pro)

Audio is always on a shared Interrupt (IRQ) with a higher priority device. Depending on the shared device, it can "interrupt" the audio and cause skipping.

If you have the HP supplied IDT audio driver for Win 7, it is also compatible for Win 8. However, check the Device Manager and see what devices are listed in the Sound section. You should ONLY have the correct IDT sound driver and possibly HDMI audio (if your system has this) and nothing else. If "HD Audio Codec" (the generic Windows installed sound driver) is also listed, or any other sound, except the IDT and possibly HDMI, uninstall those as they can cause conflicts and other audio problems. Restart the PC if you uninstalled anything.

If you only have the correct entries in the sound, RIGHT click on the entry for the IDG and then LEFT click "Uninstall" (do not uninstall the drivers). Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This will fix any potential corruptions between Windows and the sound and sometimes will put the sound on a different shared IRQ and fix or mimimize any interruptions.

I've installed the latest driver 4 my gfx card (integrated) , I've scanned with kaspersky, panda, avg, ad-aware and windows defender and I've cleaned up my registry and disk with Ccleaner.

I've got 223 MB RAM, which seems to get eaten up as fast as heck during start-up and afterwards, so I downloaded XP FreeRAM Pro or w/e. It got 4 stars on download.com and IMO it works well. Computer temps are within safe levels (40 -55c max) and it makes no distinct sounds when frozen. When it freezes, the screen stays still and sound turns off. Basic functions like turning on the CAPS lock light are working. I've got my PC tuned up for fast performance, no desktop BG, no window effects (it looks like windows 98) only 4 desktop icons (including the mystring thing). I only got ZoneAlarm firewall, AVG and FreeRam on my taskbar. Still slow, sometimes. I dunno what else to do.

I'm running on an AMD Duron, with VIA motherboard (with S3 Unichrome integrated gfx)
and VIA AC97 audio controller (which i haven't found an update for).

Any suggestions? Thx in advance.

Oh, and it freezes on low-end games. Pharaoh only needs 32 MB RAM and I can't run it w/o freezing it's maddening.

Whenever I've tried to play music, a dvd or video of any sort, or play a game my computer has been getting complete freeze ups. The problem only started around 3 - 4days ago.
I play music in Itunes, and this is where the problem started, however, I have also tried using winamp and vlc but I get the same problem. I can get anywhere between 30 seconds and 10 minutes of music before the problem occurs but when it does it locks up the whole computer, i can move my mouse around but nothing can be clicked, no keyboard commands are working (ctrl + alt + del, alt + f4 etc.). When the song freezes it will constantly loop the second of the song that it froze on but no other worrying sounds are made by any part of the computer.

If I'm watching a video I once again get between 30 seconds and 10 minutes before a problem occurs, the audio will carry on as normal, but the video will hang and thats when the whole computer freezes. Once again, no keyboard commands work, and the mouse can move but not interact.
When playing games everything is fine until i try to close the game or click (or alt + tab) away from it, then it will get caught half way between the command and freeze up the entire computer just like the other causes of freezing.

The only way I can un-freeze my computer is to turn it off at the power button or using the restart button.

Answer:lenovo z570 stoping while listening music aur playing games

hi larikrohail,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Your system might be experiencing Freezing lagging issue.
Sometimes it is caused by a background program that's using too much process.
You can isolate this by performing a clean boot.
 
I would suggest disabling the antivirus first and check if it going to improve. Some times a monthly or weekly Virus scan of the PC can cause slowness or freezing.
 
Best Regards,

Hi everyone

I had the problem that my computer shuts down while playing games or just browsing the internet. At first I got a black screen, but was still able to hear sound (e.g. music player) for ~2-3 seconds. This happened every 1-60 minutes after booting... (If I run in secure mode, everything was fine) So I decided to set up a clean installation of Windows. BUUUT the problem occurs again. Not every 15 minutes, but it occurs.

I'm not quite sure if this is right, but I've got the feeling that this began again after installing all automatic updates. Ofc I have the recent versions of graphic card drivers etc.

Just like described in the BSOD forum I attach a zip with further informations including dump files etc.


I would be sooo happy if you could help me solving this problem.

Cheers!

Answer:Random black screen (while playing games, listening music, ...)

So I just bought a new laptop, toshiba satellite p755-s5390, and have been noticing some static crackles/ lag. When I play music (pandora) sometimes it randomly has a static spike and lags my mouse for 5-10 second periods, then goes away. This also occurs when I'm playing an online game (airmech). When it happens while playing, it lags my screen and shoots my ping up to 500-1000 when its normally around 75-100. I also hear the static while its lagging. I have tried re-installing my sound drivers but that didn't fix anything. I know its not my outlet because I have gone to different homes/hotels and its still there. Could it possibly be my Ipod? Thanks for helping!

Please can someone help me figure out why there is no bass output on my setup.

I have a Creative X-Fi Titanium Champion series sound card with a 5.1 speaker setup. I installed the latest drive/software package off the creative website. I have configured all the setting and when I set the speaker settings to 5.1 and do a test where Windows will play a tone for all the speakers and the bass I can hear the bass but when playing music or games there is no bass output.

As shown on the pic below if I click on the bass icon I can hear the sound coming from the sub and that's it, I won't hear it on anything else.

Answer:No bass output when playing music/games on X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty cham

5.1 channels are used only in multichannel movies (you may have to also configure the playing application for multichannel) and in supporting games (as long as multichannel is enabled from sound settings in game). When listening to any other (usually stereo) source, you only get sound from the front speakers. To get sound from all speakers you must configure the playing application to do so (duplicate front channels on rear for stereo).

So I recently opened my CPU because it was lagging and I thought maybe a little clean up might do the trick. So I softly brushed the drivers inside the CPU to get some dust off. However, when I turned on my PC, it seems that whenever I watch videos or play games, a loud crackling sound comes out from my speakers. I don't know what is causing this.

I have tried disabling my drivers (sound and display) but to no avail. However, if I mute the volume on my sound driver, the sound disappears. Which lead me to the conclusion that it might be a conflict of sound and display.

Since the problem only occured when I opened my CPU and cleaned it, it might also be a wiring problem or something.

Can someone help me on this?

I just updated and rebuilt my PC and have reinstalled Win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a BSOD while using the PC. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet.
From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Recently I've been getting a LOT of bluescreens, but annoyingly so, the errors have not been consistent. The computer would crash and I would research into it, it would crash again and a different error would appear!

Using the guide on BSOD posting i've compressed the crash folder down

My computer has been doing this a lot recently and its started doing it more often, usually the 0x0000003b code pops up when either windows media player is on or when it is stood idle for a while. Using NirSoft's bluescreen viewer it stating that the ntoskrnl.exe is the problem in all minidumps, it also sometimes states nvator64.sys is the other file that causes the bluescreen. i have attached the minidumps to this and hopefully someone will tell me how to fix it, i have checked online and gathered it down to these 3 options... either my PSU is not powerful enough to support the payload, my HDD is corrupt or the RAM is stating to fail. Thank you for the people who can help! as a side note, i have tried formatting and reinstalling my windows 7 64bit ultimate, but the BSOD can appear on setup and did at one point so i had to renew the whole setup, recently it has started doing it a lot more. one happened not too long ago and also had the CDD.dll file as an error.

Hi folks, Here's hoping you can help me with my persistent problem.

So the story is, I mainly get BSOD when i have music running at the same time as producing a keyshot rendering. This is the case 80% of the time, sometimes the BSOD will happen at any random point during the day, regardelss what software is running. I have had days with 5-6 crashes, and then days with none whatsoever.

Playing music with a rendering consistently manages to trigger a crash however.

I have tried wiping the graphics drivers using the video driver removal tool, and then reinstalling official windows 7 drivers from the hp website. this seemed to fix the issue for a few days, however the crashes eventually returned.

Note - i had a dual core version of this laptop for about 2 weeks before i was upgraded to the quad core version. My previous machine also exhibited the same BSOD problems. These laptops were completely identical besides the Core count.

Any help is much appreciated.

Here is my basic system info.

HP Zbook G2 - windows 7 enterprise

Core i7 quad-core 4810mq
18gb ram
250gb ssd
100gb scratch disk
nvidia quadro k1100m
Intel HD 4600

thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide!!

Good evening, good morning and good afternoon, depending on where you are,
I'm gonna go straight to the problem. I'm getting 1-4 BSOD's per day. I get them either while simply browsing the internet (facebook, youtube, even this forum), listening to music and chatting on skype or playing (while playing I think I got the BSOD only twice, and both time it was while playing some Minecraft). Now, I don't think I've installed any new drivers and I definitely didn't install any new hardware, apart from when I installed the windows (I changed all PC parts except for HDD and reinstalled the windows). I got the .zip file that's required to help identify the problem and make this post valid for posting. So yeah, that's about it.

I've been having this issue for nearly a year now (probably around 9 months). It started after my little sister made me get a virus by her trying to download something onto my laptop. I've since taken it to a reputable computer shop as well as followed instructions from other computer wizs and I think it's no longer there. Issue is, my computer has kind of developed another problem after that. It freezes on it's own sometimes, when I pick it up or even when it's on a desk and immobile. It would also freeze when I play a game sometimes, loud buzzing sound as the game continues in loops I believe. I had BSOD problems earlier this year that was solved (Apparently. I haven't gotten any in about 4-5 months) when I had Windows 7 but this issue still persists.

When it would freeze and I manually turn off my computer and turn it back on, the laptop would sometimes say no wifi could be detected. At all. Not mine, not my neighbors, nothing. I've never really taken it out of the house so I don't know if it'd act the same elsewhere. I would then shut it down and take out the battery for 30 seconds before putting it back in. Sometimes the wifi would work then or I'd go connect it to my Internet Modem and the wifi would start working over there too.

So I'm not sure what's causing this problem. It's not overheating as I had it cleaned less than 4 months ago by a professional. I've had this laptop for two years and I really wanted it to last me at least 4 because I'll be going into an ani... Read more

Hi, this started about 3 weeks ago while playing Fallout 3 and started out of the blue. I tried updating the new drivers, a fresh OS install and using DDU to remove the drivers.

I just got a BSOD stating "atikmdag.sys..". I have uploaded the files in the correct format hopefully.

Thanks for your time.

Answer:BSOD playing games

Hello, psychobean and welcome to the forms. I will try to assist you. You only had 1 dump file, dated today. It said, as you know, it was your graphics driver.


Code:

VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (116)
Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
Arguments:
Arg1: fffffa800a9f74e0, Optional pointer to internal TDR recovery context (TDR_RECOVERY_CONTEXT).
Arg2: fffff88003ce5970, The pointer into responsible device driver module (e.g. owner tag).
Arg3: 0000000000000000, Optional error code (NTSTATUS) of the last failed operation.
Arg4: 000000000000000d, Optional internal context dependent data.
A Video TDR fault means basically the graphics driver crashed but did not recover in time, so the system assumes a video failure and shuts down to protect itself. This is your current driver

Crash While playing BF4 (1-2Hr.) and other games with High Graphics.
Rarely Crash when idle.
I try to change MSI Afterburner to Asus GPU Tweaking and EVGA Precision X and it's also crash..
Help me please.

Answer:[Help] BSOD 124 When playing BF4 and other games

Hi

STOP 0x124 is always hardware related. Among various reasons, Overclocking is the number one reason for this particular BSOD so the first thing you should do is disabling overclocking, voltage tweaking of CPU, RAM and let the system run on stock values (at least as a test).

Whether to overclock or not is your choice but you should understand a fact that overclocking a Core i7 CPU is not going to boost a single FPS in any PC games. Almost all PC games are GPU centric and even the most CPU demanding games only require half the power your CPU offers. OC will benefit in case of certain apps like CAD programs, video rendering etc as they are blindly tied to the clock speed of CPU. But PC games seems to benefit from the number of cores as they are ported from eight core PS3.

Disable OC and check whether it helps. You can re-enable it at any time once the root cause is found.

When i am playing dota 2 or bf3 its just giving bsods randomly every time diffrent place, diffrent game(maybe same game over and over again at dota 2). PC's tempratures are ok GPU(30-68), CPU(32-45). Memtest completed without errors(7 times). I just formatted pc 1 week ago.

Answer:BSOD's while Playing Games

If BSOD's continue after formatting the PC - it's most likely a hardware problem (although you could be installing problematic software - so that's a consideration). Start by running these free diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics

Out of 12 memory dumps there were 5 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers)
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

Quite a few dumps blaming ntfs.sys (a file system driver). This is suggestive of a hard drive issue - so I'd run the hard drive diagnostics first.

At least 2 possibilities for driver issues causing this:





WinRing0x64.sys Sat Jul 26 09:29:37 2008 (488B26C1)
many different programs that center around the using of the WinRing libraries (RealTemp, Corsair Link2 (known BSOD issues w/Win8), Razer GameBooster, etc)

PC is only about a week old. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I have uploaded the dump files etc.

edit: These are the two error codes I got from the crashes today 0x1000007e & 0x0000003b

Answer:BSOD mainly when playing games

Welcome aboard. There are multiple reason of the crashes.

► First of all, the October edition of nvidia display driver, which usually crashes there.

Code:
fffff880`03ecd258 fffff880`115d746f*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
nvlddmkm+0x5a646f
Install driver fusion. Then uninstall the display driver using it. Then get the September version of nvidia display driver, using the advanced search of NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search.

► Also, AMD SATA Controller AHCI 1.2 Device Driver

Code:
fffff880`03ece568 fffff880`00c38300*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for amd_sata.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for amd_sata.sys
amd_sata+0x3300
update it from AMD Support & Drivers

► uninstall the following programs

Code:
Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite *** A must to do
Start Menu\Programs\ASRock Utility
Start Menu\Programs\ASRock Utility\AsrAppCharger
► Free up the startup.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept the restart.
Let us know the results.

Hi,

Let me straightly get into the point here. I have been getting random BSODs only during gaming and that too with the error code 1000007e for most of the time. The BSODs are usually caused by dxgkrnl.sys or nvlddmkm.sys or dxgmm1.sys or ntoskrnl.sys.

Yesterday i was playing Battlefield 4 for 2 hours without any crashes. I didn't got BSODs. Then after beating the game, i have decided to play GTA 4 and installed it. (I haven't installed any patch though). Alongside i downloaded SIMS 4 from Origin and was playing it. Nothing happened. And today, when i launched GTA 4, i got BSOD within 5 minutes. I thought it was just GTA 4's problem and thus i have decided to test it with Sims 4 and i got the same BSOD within 30 minutes. I knew something was wrong here. I just don't get it. Yesterday my PC was fine and after installing GTA 4, BOOM! BLUE SCREEN! Out of nowhere.

I know it's definitely not a hardware problem. They don't die out suddenly. And weird that i got this BSOD only after installing these two games. I thought ORIGIN and SIMS 4 was the culprit here. So i uninstalled it and the problem still remains. I haven't uninstalled GTA 4 though.

Things i tried:
-Tried different versions of nvidia drivers by using clean installation in safe mode. I uses driver sweeper for this.
-Ran driver verifier and flushed out that '000.fcl' was causing BSOD on startup and thus i have uninstalled cyberlink Power DVD. But the problem still remains
-Check my HDD for bad sectors. No errors ... Read more

Hello,

I have recently started getting BSODs and just plain screen freezes, the PC has also just shut itself off once or twice. Before this problem started my PC was perfect and has been for years, I was "that guy" who never had a single problem with any game or anything, but that has all changed sadly.

I just formatted and the problem persists.

Thank you for any help.

Answer:BSOD while playing MW3, not tried other games though.

It would be best if we could get more than one file. The one that you gave us relates to a memory access problem. Run the bootable version of RAM - Test with Memtest86+ for at least five passes, preferably seven. If any do not pass, then that memory card or that slot may be bad. Once a memory card passes, that card and that slot are known to be good. Then move the good card from slot to slot to find any bad slots. Test the remaining cards in the known good slots to find any bad cards.

Greetings.

I am a total noob when it comes to computers, and am not sure if I do this right. But would be immensely grateful for some help.

I have been playing StarWars the old Republic, and BloodBowl: Legendary edition, quite abit. And have had no troubles.

Until yesterday. When first Bloodbowl ended in a BSOD and then SWTOR.

So I searched the net, and found this forum.

So will try to add the things asked for. Not sure if everything is right, but should be fairly accurate.

I have added my System Specs in the profile. I have added a System Health report in a zip and a Crash dump folder thing, in another.

And then there was this:

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? x64
- the original installed OS on the system? Yes.
- an OEM or full retail version? Hmm not sure. I think it is OEM, but I did install it myself.
- OEM = came pre-installed on system
- Full Retail = you purchased it from retailer

- What is the age of system (hardware)? The newest pieces are about half a year. The oldest is about 2 year.
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) New harddrive and new install a half a year ago.


There we have it. I have no idea what the problem is. I hope some geniusis here can help me out!

FurMark download site: FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net

- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
NOTE: Set the alarm to go off at 90?C. Then watch the system from that point on. If the system doesn't display a temperature, watch it constantly and turn it off at the first sign of video problems. DO NOT leave it it unmonitored, it can DAMAGE your video card!!!
If the temperature gets above 100?C, quit the test - the video card is overheating.

After reading the analysis, I guessed there was a problem with my video card driver but it's up to date. So maybe you guys could find the other thing!

Answer:BSOD playing any games

Like your self help.
Well done!
But....
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hey! Been having problems recently, getting BSOD whenever i play a game. It can come as quickly as 5 minutes into play time or several hours into a session, but it will happen eventually (played 6 different games, all with the same result). The basic set up is almost 3 years old now, September 2009 build date. New GPU per last October.

Setup info:
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R, X58, Socket-1366
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz
RAM: Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz 6GB CL9 (3x 2GB)
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Classified 1280MB (This is the newest addition to my rig, installed October 2011)
HDD: WD VelociRaptor? 300GB SATA
Power supply: Corsair Powersupply HX 850W
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit Service Pack 1

DirectX (10) and so on is up to date, drivers have been updated on my GPU recently.

I'm really lost as to what is causing this, this started happening in June right after i installed a patch for Diablo 3 as well as a standard Windows update. Have had 1 BSOD before but it was a quick fix, concerning power supply issues.

Required reports are attached.

Any help that can be given is appreciated! Thanks, in advance :)

Hello I have been getting blue screen of death for some time now. I don't know what the problem is and all my drivers are up to date (that I am able to find).

These BSOD mostly happen while playing GTA 4 and sometimes Skyrim but I am not sure with other games. This will mostly happen after about 1-2 hours of playing GTA 4.

I re installed windows 7 but I did save most of my files like music and stuff. I thought this would fix the problem but it didn't.

Here is what BlueScreenView says is causing the problem.

Hello people

I'm new to this forum and debuging my PC....I know a little more about PC than the average person, and have built my last 4 PC. But when it comes to this sort of thing i'm a NOOB, so please go easy.

I'm getting BSOD on a freshly installed version windows 7 64 bit, this is the third time now i've reinstalled the OS on to different HDD and partitions...But the end product is alway the same? Freezing and crashing when playing MW2, and BSOD when i transfer files from one HDD to another when the file or folder is over about 5GB?

I have updated the drivers, and windows, and i'm currently running with minimal programes on the system. i would normally have Photoshop, Video editing programes and lots of games on the system. As i thought one of them my be the problem i have just put MW2 on. but it stills dies on me.

the only time i have experience this before was when rendering videos with Avid, and Premier Elements 8 working on a RC verion of win 7 64 (7100). so i thought installing this would fix my problem.

I have tried reading the mini dump files but to be honest....I don't understand what it was telling me. The BSOD normally comes up with 'Merory Management' or so PF? list corupt?????

I really hope someone can help me as all i want to do is have a stable system and play some games.

Thank you

Answer:BSOD when playing Games

Welcome!

Don't worry, we tailor our posts to meet the level of the OP. If he is a real noob, we give simple, step-by-step instructions, but if he knows how to do stuff already, we leave out the details.

I see two possible causes. The first is Kaspersky. Please remove it with this tool: http://support.kaspersky.com/downloa...vremover10.zip

Replace it with the free Microsoft Security Essentials.

3rd party AV programs are notorious for causing BSODs and other crashes on Windows 7 and Vista.

The other is your outdated Conextant drivers:
Code:
CT20XUT.DLL Mon Mar 05 02:45:40 2007
ctaud2k.sys Mon Mar 05 02:45:20 2007

ctprxy2k.sys Mon Mar 05 02:45:23 2007
ctsfm2k.sys Mon Mar 05 02:44:52 2007
I advise updating them.

If those two things don't work, please enable driver verifier: Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers

Hi everyone! So for the past month i have been experiencing BSOD very often(2-3 times a day) and i have no clue why is that. Its happening either while i am playing games or if i have multiple tabs open on the browser.

I was getting a bit frustrated since i don't know what is causing it and started cleaning my computer from viruses and updating all of my drivers. Still no luck with that so i came here for some help. It also seems to be limiting my internet performance and that is quite worrying too.

Its not really just BSOD I guess BSOD is a end result of the crashes I keep getting its the all too well known problem with : display driver xxx stopped responding and has recovered. I've been fighting with this problem ever since I got my new graphic card ( detailed specs later ) from time to time when I play a 3d game (doesnt have to be with really intensive graphics) the screen goes black for a couple of seconds then recovers ( unfortunately in some games it does not recover ) multiple flickers like this usually result in a BSOD. The worst thing is that its completely unpredictable and some of the newest graphic intensive games for example might not get the crash at all while others get it multiple times in a row same with some older titles ... Now theres a lot to say so I apologize for the quite chaotic post build :P Lets start with what Ive tried in order to fix or find out whats wrong:

- I tried many different NVIDIA drivers very old ones like 175 and the newest one currently 295 I think ? also many in between those 2 with no real results what sometimes seemed like a fix was just the randomness factor,

- I tried various different settings changes to the NVIDIA control panel which I found on the internet as theres tons of people having similar problem but theres just as many fixes,

- I bought a new PSU a 600W Thermaltake TR2 Bronze which supplies more than enough power,

- I tried different cords with no real result,

Answer:BSOD while playing various games

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error

If you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps.

If you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider.

This is usually heat related, defective hardware, memory or even processor though it is"possible" that it is driver related (rare).






Quote:
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
Synopsis:

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:

1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.
2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled.
If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.
3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware.
It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.
4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instruct... Read more

While playing my Computer randomly crashes. It happended several times now and i don't know where the issue is. The Computer once had a several BSOD in succession, but works again. It also happend while watching a movie.

I also get a Blackscreen randomly without doing anything. The screen becomes black,sometimes red, and works again after a reset. Therefore i guess it is GPU related but i am not very sure, because it also happend just while watching a movie.

Answer:BSOD playing Games like CIV 6

Hi PRoxx,

Welcome to the 10forums

Please check MSI for BIOS updates.


Code:
Error code: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000428 (3221226536) - Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file.
A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged,
or that might be malicious software from an unknown source.

So, taking in account the latest crashes and this error, our first step is to look for possible problems in the hardware and/or Windows files.


Diagnostics Test

 System File Check

Please try following:
Open an admin command promptCopy/paste "sfc /scannow" (without quotes) and press enterWhen it is finished reboot your systemOpen again an admin command promptEnter sfc/scannow again
If sfc/scannow says "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them" after the second SFC, please upload the cbs.log file located at %systemroot%\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.

Make a photo of SFC and post it.

Answer:BSOD while playing some games.

Run an sfc/scannow command in an elevated command prompt. If errors are found, run it twice more with each scan followed by a reboot.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Enable Driver Verifier. Enabling this should hopefully crash your system and then point to the faulty driver that is causing problems. However before you do, it is advised that you create a system restore point and backup first.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

The following drivers need to be updated:


Code:
amdxata.sys Wed May 20 03:56:59 2009
These drivers can be found by searching them in Google and then finding the associated software or driver. Finally, find the latest version of this driver or software and download and install it.

You should also update any other drivers you can think of including graphics, audio, chipset etc.

I dont think temps are the problem, so what could it be? please help.

Solutions I have tried:

1.Defragged the HD with pirifrom defraggler
2.Cleaned the registry using c cleaner
3. Performed SFC /scannow command - no errors found
4. ran memtest for an hour - no errors found
5. Loaded setup defaults in the bios
6. Reseated the GPU and ram the way it should be
7. Applied a new thermal paste on the processor

Answer:Having BSOD while playing games.

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error

If you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps.

If you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider.

This is usually heat related, defective hardware, memory or even processor though it is"possible" that it is driver related (rare).

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
Synopsis:

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:

1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.
2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled.
If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.
3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware.
It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.
4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instruct... Read more

Hi guys, I've been having this problem for the last few months where, whenever I try to play a game, after about 10-30mins I have a BSOD. This has so far happened to Borderlands 2, Assassins Creed 3, Far Cry 3 and various others. It has also done it a few times when trying to watch videos online. I have had various incidents where Windows Explorer will stop working or where other small things stop working (e.g. desktop gadgets). I have so far tried various things (disk degragmenting, full system virus scan and registry cleaning, turning off Avast) but to no avail. I am at my wit's end, as I can now barely do anything on my computer without serious problems. Any help would be great!!!
p.s. this is my first time posting here, so I'm not sure if there's anything I've done wrong in this post.

Answer:BSOD while playing games

Hello fatfriarg.

You are highly overclocked.

Code:
CPUID: "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz"
MaxSpeed: 3400
CurrentSpeed: 3502
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings. Also set the BIOS to default, too.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.

Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

At least 30% extra is safe. Also let us know about the wattage of the PSU.

It seems that one BSOD is during scanning with Avast? Scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.

Windows Defender Offline
Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.

Help! I built my PC about 2.5 years ago, and I keep getting blue screens (kind of... screen chooses a color and makes a horrible noise from my speakers). The only way out is to hard-reset. So far, only games I've experienced it consistently in are battlefield 3 and Trine 2. No idea what the problem would be. I've poked around with the dump files and such and have no idea how to read them. Please let me know if you can help! Not sure what I need to post but here is the debug report from windbg. Specs are listed below:

Answer:BSOD when playing certain games

Hello TrueShott and welcome to Sevenforums.

* How long have you been running Windows 7 on this hardware?
* Does it only happen while you're gaming?
* What are your temperatures just before a crash?

BSOD Analyse

How long have you been running Windows 7 on this motherboard? I believe that your hardware barely can support running Windows 7. Your BIOS is from 2009 which could be problematic.

Here are some of my suggestions:
Search your hardware parts on the Windows 7 Compatibility Center, and ensure that Microsoft has approved the product to be 7 ready.End with the Upgrade Advisor afterwards.

Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows


Code:
BIOS-versie/datum American Megatrends Inc. P01-A3, 31/12/2009
Problem Devices


Code:
Microsoft PS/2-muis ACPI\PNP0F03\4&E605FC2&0 Dit apparaat is niet aanwezig, het werkt niet correct of heeft niet alle benodigde stuurprogramma's ge?nstalleerd.
Usually appears when a gaming mouse is installed. Make sure to get the driver from the manufacturer.

Checkup hi and welcome to Seven Forums

You have two significant problems.
1-ASACPI.SYS a major cause of BSOD's in the 2005 rev.

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

The 2005 (and easrlier) version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUS teK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE

Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).

2-Your video driver. Re-install newest using this method
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Hello, if this its in the wrong section I apologize, however I do not believe this to be a game specific issue. When playing a select few games (most notably Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2142 on multiplayer, Half Life 2 and a couple others) I will be anywhere from a few minutes to a couple hours into the game and I get a BSOD with no text. I restart and everything is fine, until I play another game. Counterstrike Source works just fine, as does Battlefield 2 and 2142 on single player, Combat Arms, World of Warcraft, and F.E.A.R. I cleaned out the inside of my case for dust and stuff with canned air, and I swapped my two 512MB RAM chips because it seemed like a RAM error to me (heavy resource games are the only ones doing it) and instead of 1024MB of ram my computer showed only 512MB of ram. Ok so my RAM was bad. i went to Fry,s and bought a two pack of 1GB sticks of DDR3200 RAM and a ThermalTake Northbridge chipset cooler (the fan on the stock cooler was almost gone I figured it might be another problem). Installed both and it still does it. Next I thought it might be old or bad drivers, so I found all the updated drivers (my ATI card, motherboard chipset and sound card), still doing it. I looked in the BIOS and all the temperatures and voltages were just fine (temperatures were 47C for CPU and 49C for chipset). I looked in the event viewer and here are the errors I get:Event Type: ErrorEvent Source: Service Control ManagerEvent Category: NoneEvent ID: 7023Date: 3/... Read more

Answer:BSOD when playing some games

...I am currently running a hacked version...Unfortunately Bleeping Computer cannot provide support for illegal copies of Windows and other software. From the forum rules:No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.In addition to the legal issues, hacked software doesn't follow normal programming rules. So it's not easy to fix a problem if it caused by consequences of the "hack".This topic is closed. Should you reinstall Windows using a legal copy with your legal product key we'll be glad to provide assistance.
