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 %

Code:
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.

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!

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.

My problems were are a fake "hard drive failed message", internet explorer opening and playings musical ads, all my browsers redirecting to the wrong sites, and when i try and play world of warcraft i get memory errors that cause it to crash instantly.

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'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.

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.
 

Answer:PC Freezes when playing games, music or most other things!!!

Maybe a heat problem. What's the temperature of the processor?

Well now I have this thing with a lot of games. As soon as a track gets over and the Music app plays another song the game crashes. How many of you are experiencing the same. My phone is a Nokia Lumia 525 and I am using a 32gb SanDisk Ultra Class 10 SD card with it and games are stored on it.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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,
Solid Cruver

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, ...)

Try a clean startup - Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

It may very well be the GPU drivers (even though they are recent).

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. Also before anyone says it, YES MY DRIVERS ARE ALL UP TO DATE! there are literally no updates available for my hardware which is why i think its either my HDD or RAM.

My Specs:
AMD Athlon II X2 245 2.91 Dualcore
Gigabyte M52LT-D3
4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 RAM (not sure on the manufacturer)
NVIDIA Geforce GT 440

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.

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!!

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

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.

Question: BSOD playing games

Been getting multiple BSOD's while playing games incl. BF4 and Sims 4 (don't ask, lol). Computer usually restarts right after so I've never been able to take a picture of the screen but from what just happened maybe 20 minutes ago, I managed to catch a glimpse of it saying atikmdag.sys causing the BSOD.

Another issue that has been frequently occurring is the screen blacking out while web browsing in Chrome. Once the screen recovers, I get a notifaction saying something like "AMD display driver has stopped responding but has recovered". Event Viewer reveals that this is caused by "display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered". Disabling hardware acceleration fixes this however.

This is on a brand new build that is just over a month old. I'm still not 100% sure if it's due to a faulty card since underclocking and overclocking doesn't seem to have any positive effect.

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!!!

Question: BSOD playing games

Hello

Since recently I've been having a couple of BSOD during games, 2 times once I was playing PlanetSide 2 (different days), once during Dishonored, and once during a browser game. It crashes at random intervals, PlanetSide 2 once crashed after 1 hour and 20 minutes, once after 20 minutes. Dishonored crashed after 3 hours or something like that...

I've recently bought a new video card (GTX 770). But when I installed it and its drivers, everything worked like a charm, it never gave a BSOD, I installed it around 3 weeks back and the BSOD have been starting to show up since last week.

It's very wierd and I can't seem to find the issue here. I'm using nVidia GeForce Experience to auto-update the videocard drivers. I've added the .zip file from the SF_Diagnostic_Tool.exe.

Thanks in advance

Counterfeit installations such as yours contains heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows installation, and are still experiencing BSOD's, we will be happy to help you solve them.

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.

Hello .

What you're experiencing is called a TDR (Timeout Detection & Recovery) and its not a real crash
in the sense that something wrong occurred in the Kernel.

Symptoms included a screen flash with the TDR message appearing one or more times or the screen blinking out to black. If the system cannot recover it will crash (Stop Error 116 typical). The issue is that the video card is not responding as expected.
.

.
.
There are numerous reports of hardware solutions to TDR's. The most common are:
Poor Cooling
Problems with the power supply
Overclocking Issues
Bad System memory or incorrect memory timings
Defective PC Components

Hi so my PC has been crashing during games sometimes a few minutes to a few hours in. Half the time it straight crashes with no BSOD and with an absolute horrid crackling sound. The other half of the time it crashes with a BSOD.
 
The latest 2 of my BSODs said the following:
driver_irql_not_less_or_equal (hdaudbus.sys)

system_thread_exception_not_handled (RTKVHD64.sys)
 

In Event Viewer a bugcheck seemed to occur as well for the first time ever:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.  The bugcheck was: 0x0000007e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff800ac295f91, 0xffffd0005c1d9478, 0xffffd0005c1d8c90). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 120515-5125-01
 
Here are my system specs:
http://puu.sh/lK396/43007b2563.png
 
During the next week I will be swapping out my hardware (specifically the graphics card) with other devices to know if one particular device is the culprit.
 
Hopefully that's enough information. Thanks in advance.

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)

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.

It only seems to happen when I'm playing games. I get various different reasons, (bad_pool_caller, dxmmm1.sys or something, cant remember the others offhand)
I have a feeling its all related to my graphics card. I've updated the drivers, used driver sweeper to clear out any old ones, updated some outdated drivers manually.
But it just keeps happening. I've attached everything I need... I think, I haven't done anything like this before, so please tell me if there is any other information you need.

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

It may simply be a case that Empires2 is causing memory corruption. That having been said, if you run these to tests it can test your ram and find the misbehaving driver.
* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have a raid update its Driver.

Memtest.





*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

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.

Question: BSOD playing games

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.

Edit: Forgot to add that I kept getting the display driver has crashed and recovered error while playing Fallout 3 and Anno 2070 aswell. - Windows 7 64bit

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

I recently changed my XFX 6850 to a MSI Twin Frozr II 560 TI Factory OC and have been getting random BSODs. I've tried updating my drivers, reinstalling them, and reseating the card. I've also been getting blue, green, purple fuzz all over my screen which causes my computer to freeze for a few seconds. When this happens, a pop up appears sayings that Nvidia Windows Kernel Drivers have stopped responding and successfully restarted.

Here are the minidump files:

Hey, guys. It's my first post here on this forum, so forgive me if I miss some things out.

I bought my current PC in October 2011. For the most part it's a great system, but ever since I bought it I've been getting sporadic blue screens when playing certain games, particularly on demanding games like Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Metro 2033, and a few others. Some games run fine with no issues, but the three I've listed are the biggest culprits. I can play for indefinite periods when the screen will suddenly go black for several seconds and the system automatically reboots.

I replaced my old 500W PSU earlier today after hoping that a new, more powerful unit would fix the issue. Alas, it didn't.

My current system specs are:

Windows 7 Premium 64-bit
AMD Phenom II X4 955
AMD Radeon HD 6750
4 GB RAM
ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 board
Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2UK 750W

I've included the two required zip files and the latest minidump file from a blue screen I had earlier today whilst playing Battlefield 3.

Any help on identifying the problem would be much appreciated.

Answer:BSOD when playing certain games

You have a hardware error (0x124). Read the following thread and see if any of it's fixes work.
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Among the fixes in the above thread are a few stress tests. Before you do any of the other fixes mentioned in the thread, you should run these stress tests:

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

Test your hardware using Prime95. Watch your machine's temps and stop the test if it starts to overheat. Let it run for up to 2 hours or until errors have been found.

Hello cwhite, Welcome to SF

Both of your dump files indicate an 0x124 error which is a hardware error heres some more info for you
BSOD Index
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

To be more specific your files state
BUSL0_SRC_ERR_M_NOTIMEOUT_ERR
this indicates the processor sent out a read request to L0 cache, and there was a delay in return

if your system is overclocked in anyway stop straight away if not check your cpu cooling as this may be caused by overheating, check your system/cpu temps and if they seem ok then try some stress testing of the cpu but be careful to monitor cpu temps at all times while stressing

Hope this helps post back with your results or any questions

Alright So I've posted on here before trying to get help for a BSOD problem, but had no luck. I'm here again to see if somebody knows a solution at this point. Here is what I know so far, my game crashes after 10-15 mins. of gameplay depending on the game. The BSOD would change from Memory_Management to System_Service_Exception and maybe even Pool Corruption. I believe the problem started after I updated to the newest video drivers and my games run fine without my graphics card installed(Ofcourse at a significantly lower setting). Memtest found no errors with the RAM. Also when I know my game is about to crash into a BSOD, if i tab out real wuick I could see it say that nvidia kernel driver stopped and recovered following up with a bsod almost instantly. Been looking on the web for answers for weeks and haven't found any. I've tried changing my drivers to an older version with no success. I'm stuck and I need some answers.

My specs are...
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64
CPU: AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1075T Processor
Memory:8GB Kit (4GBx2), Ballistix 240-pin DIMM, DDR3 PC3-10600 memory module
HDD: HITACHI HDS721050CLA362 (500GB)
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
Motherboard: ASUS M4A78LT-MLE
Security: MSE

Answer:BSOD while playing games.

The likely culprits are your graphics card or your PSU. What PSU are you using?

Obviously, there are other possible reasons for the crashes, but the two mentioned should be checked first.

As to the crashes, the latest was a MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, and the previous was a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION. The MEMORY_MANAGEMENT crash yielded little useful information. SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION typically means a graphics card problem, but yours was indicating a network issue. The network relation could be a false positive, or it could be related to your Atheros driver that needs to be updated. I see a couple drivers that should be updated:
Code:
ASACPI fffff880`04112000 fffff880`0411a000 Sun Mar 27 20:30:36 2005 (42476c4c) 00003c77 ASACPI.sys
