BSOD randomly after playing games or playing movies )

Question: BSOD randomly after playing games or playing movies )

Hi Guys,

I have issues with my desktop. I randomly get the bsod (kernel data inpage error). I thought it started after I installes the new ATI drivers. So I tried older drivers but without any result. After that I thought it was an issues with Win 7 64bit. So I installed 32bit. But still I get the bsdod.

can you please help?

Win 7 32 bit
oem original
hardware about two years old.
I have a new installed os.The old one started giving trouble after 2 years.

Preferred Solution: BSOD randomly after playing games or playing movies )

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.)

Answer: BSOD randomly after playing games or playing movies )

SP1 isn't installed, please do the following:





Quote:
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

I have had limited success in installing updates/Service Packs when using a "clean boot". I suspect that I'm just bypassing the problem - and that it can come back to bite me in the butt later on.


You have an 802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card. Win7 doesn't like these devices. They will rapidly spit out BSOD's if using Vista-era drivers. Here's my rant about these devices:





Quote:
I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Win7 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.


AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems.





Quote:
Please uninstall all AMD/ATI video stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program
Then, download and install a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD (in the upper right corner of the page)
Use this procedure to install the DRIVER ONLY: ATI video cards - DRIVER ONLY installation procedure

If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Uninstall". Reboot for changes to take affect.


Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.

If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.

STOP 0x7A specifically refers to a problem with a missing Service Pack ( BSOD Index )
The c000009d parameter means DEVICE_NOT_CONNECTED
And the memory dump suggests that there might be a hardware problem with the hard drive.
Just to be sure, please run this free hard drive diagnostic: Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

Microsoft Security Essentials dynamic driver showed up in the memory dump. I'd suggest:
- downloading a fresh copy
- uninstalling the current copy
- installing the freshly downloaded copy and IMMEDIATELY updating it
- perform a full system scan.

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs

Hi Everyone,

A while ago my computer started tofreeze up when playing a movie.. I have been trying to locate the error but am unable to find out why this happens. Sometimes I can play a few movies and sometimes it freezes within seconds of playing a movie. Since two days the machines also starts to reboot with a BSOD when just browsing the net or working on a document. Generally it will freeze up with a 124 error.

Your help is highly appreciated as it drives me crazy that I am not able to find the problem. My personal thought is that is is my processor or the videocard that is causing the issue.

Thanks in advance.
Randy

Answer:BSOD coming up randomly. first only when playing movies, now random

A stop 0x124 is a hardware related issue, apparently. And the computer seems to be bit of old.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not. eXtreme Power Supply Calculator - The only power supply calculator trusted by PSU manufacturers and computer enthusiasts
Also let us know the wattage of the installed PSU.

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. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark. Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us. Also let us know if you have experienced any crash/BSOD and/or artifacts during the test.

Answer:BSOD only when playing games or watching movies

Please provide this info so we can see more info about the system's issues: http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ta-452654.html

If you've reinstalled Windows, then it's most likely a hardware issue. But running a hard drive diagnostic is needed to rule out the hard drive: HD Diagnostic (read the details at the link).

The memory dumps seem to suggest that a driver is to blame - but there's only 3 of them so it's difficult to see if there's a pattern that indicates a hardware problem.

Please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions. I'd like to see at least 2 memory dumps from running Driver Verifier:

Quote:




Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"

This has been happening for a very long time now. Everytime I am playing a game and watching a movie at the same time, my computer gets the BSOD. It will either just freeze both my monitors and then lead to BSOD, or it will start giving off weird colored lines and different colored pixels across both screens.

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
MOBO: EVGA nForce 780i SLI 775 A1 Version
VGA: XFX ATI Radeon 5850
CPU: Intel E8400 C2D
Memory: CORSAIR XMS2 DHX 4GB (2 x 2GB)
Monitor 1: SyncMaster 2253BW 22"
Monitor 2: LG 32LD550 32"

Since I have owned this PC, it has crashed countless times. From Windows XP Pro to Windows 7.

Answer:BSOD - Playing Games and Watching Movies

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.

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.

First time is BSOD that have warning message about Driver IRQL not less or equal, and sometimes it have Memory Service Exception 0x0000007E... my work to prevent this is :
1. Formating my windows 7 OS
2. Uninstall all driver to check if the driver is conflict
3. Run MEM-CHECK (The result is memcheck didn't find any fault)
4. Run CHKDSK 3 time
5. Cleaning my RAM and place it in another slot (hmm..to check if my RAM slot is faulty or not)

Hello, I had my custom PC built over a year ago, but I encounter constant BSOD errors that happen quite randomly. Some days I get no errors at all, while other times my system will crash seconds after starting a game. Two of the most common errors include the "irql_not_less_or_equal", and the "atidvag" error. I know that the atidvag error relates to my graphics card (XFX Radeon 6850) and I am also aware of the proper method for uninstalling its drivers but neither updating nor rolling back the drivers seem to do any good.

I have included my "collection" of dump files which is quite extensive... Any help would be appreciated and thanks.

Answer:BSOD While Playing PC Games, web browsing, watching movies

Checked two of the latest dumps (the others are months old) which does not give a true sense of a failing GPU or graphics issue or anything similar, but it appears to be something else. In order to take some decisions, I need to see your msinfo32.nfo file; but the uploaded one is corrupted. Better you do it for one more time .... upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.

When it finishes restarting, I see a windows error message which says that my computer has experienced a BSOD. I don't know if it is actually a BSOD, since I don't get a blue screen, it just restarts my computer after a black screen.

I know this is a Windows 8 forums so I feel reluctant to post that I'm on Windows 7 but I'm desperate for help.

Answer:BSOD Randomly but mostly while playing games.

We work on anything that we're able to here. But, I do suggest that you post over in SevenForums as you'll find more experts in that OS over there: Windows 7 Help Forums

For example, I am familiar with the Killer Network Manager (2013 versions) causing BSOD's on Win8 MSI systems - but I have no clue if this is also a problem with Win7.

You only have 205 Windows Updates. I am unfamiliar with the usual numbers for Win7 - so please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates.

Please install the drivers for these devices:

As the memory dumps blame the Killer Network drivers, I'm suspicious that this may also be a problem with the Killer Network Manager. Please do this:





NOTE: See this link first: BSOD while playing on msi gt70 dragon edition 2 (thanks to kaelaan) It appears that the Killer Service problem was solved with the latest release of the Qualcomm versions of the drivers (so try updating to a version dated from later in 2014).

Hi recently my computer has been crashing randomly while playing games. I mostly play league of legends but it crashes with any game that I try to play. I have tried re-installing windows 7 and removing and re-installing drivers. It can crash a few minutes in to the game or after a couple hours.

Answer:BSOD randomly 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).






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

I've been getting random BSOD crashes and frankly their quite annoying!

I have done a fresh install with hopes of it possibly being a driver error but I believe it may be an hardware issue as I just had another BSOD while playing a game. On a side note this is usually when I get the BSOD either playing a game or trying to livestream, which leaves me to believe it maybe is a RAM/GPU error.

Anyways I've attached the required rar/zip files from that program I ran from how to post BSOD thread

Hello,
I just bought this new laptop and I've been having the BSOD randomly when playing games. Most of the time I manage to play with no problem but sometimes it crashes in the first 2 mins of playing. Chances of this happening after waking from sleep is higher.
Not sure if this is related to the same issue but I'm gonna mention it anyways. When waking up from sleep 'sometimes' laptop becomes laggy also opened windows and the desktop can't be active meaning every time I click on them to activate, it inactivates itself immediately. I have to log off and log on back again.
What I did:
I updated Nvidia driver from Dell.com. File downloaded: 9530_Video_Driver_1M2M4_WN_9.18.13.3235_A03.EXE
Problem still persists so I updated to the latest version from NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce Game Ready Driver WHQL
Unfortunately problem still persists.
I uninstalled wireless drivers and restarted to let Windows reinstall them. This worked for someone here. It did work for me for 2 days but now I got the BSOD again.

Note:
Whenever I get the BSOD and laptop restarts and I start playing the game again, the wireless disconnects then reconnects after 1 min. This happens only once after I get the BSOD.

I don't know what else I could do at this point.
Any help?

This started around 3 days ago, I would be browsing the Internet and webpages would crash randomly, then later that night, I was playing Garrys Mod and it kept randomly crashing without an error message or the typical "HL2.exe has stopped working".
The next day, I was browsing the internet and all of the sudden, my computer got the BSOD. I rebooted it, clicked on Google Chrome, and the second it popped up, I got the BSOD again. I repeated the same process again, but it actually opened this time, but every once in awhile, it'll freeze, and then BSOD. (Last time was this morning during a Youtube video.)

I ran BlueScreenViewer and included a picture of what I saw below, along with the mini-dumps and such. I was planning on buying a new Mobo and CPU this month, but I'm kind of hesitant because I don't want the BSOD to continue on my new hardware. I'm not sure if it'll even help with this problem.

If anyone could help me, I'd be extremely grateful, I also ran MalwareBytes and it didn't find anything, so I don't think this is the cause of any nasty viruses or anything.

Hello guys.

First a bit of info:
My setup is from May 2014, nothing has been changed yet and no problems untill now.
The problem started on the 9th of June.
Problem started as anti-power surge shutdowns.
11th of June I disabled the Anti-power surge in BIOS.
Days to come afterwards contained multiple shutdowns due to BSOD.

I have tried running all forms of virus scans with multiple software.
I have tried running defrags and everything else to ease up on the system.

The temperatures on the motherboard and CPU is maxing at 60 degrees celsius, but the BSOD can occure while the CPU is at 35 degrees celsius and the Motherboard 28 degrees celsius.
All of the voltages is within range as well.

I have tried taking my system back to a date before some windows updates, which were installed before the occurances of BSOD and power surge, without any luck.

At this point I have the dump files and the system specs, which will be uploaded along with this post. Please do comment if you have anything on mind.

Answer:BSOD occuring randomly, playing games or doing nothing at all.

it seems to be your graphics card, try the card on another computer if you have one available and if the same thing happens, it is time for a new card

Hi there,

Ever since last friday I have been getting BSOD. My occured while playing lotro (Lord of the rings online, mmo) and while playing windowd I tried to play a youtube video. Which has never given me any problems before. Also msn and some other firefox tabs were open.
Then saturday and sunday more BSOD came in. During browsing, during doing nothing, on the windows inlog screen. I can't really put my finger on it. Putting load on the system doesn't trigger it, nor does firefox, lotro, seems a bit random.
Only software stuff that changed since friday is a java update, daily Avira anti virus definitions update and I installed guild wars 2.

I tried to look at the bluescreens logs myself, but I really have no clue what I'm looking at, so if you could check for me that would be awesome.

So this blue screen has been happening randomly when playing some games and using some applications ever since I built my pc 2 years ago. I've upgraded some parts and completely re installed windows 7 in the past but it hasn't been fixed. Now it has started to happen again after I started playing Guild Wars 2. I'm pretty sure nothing is overheating because I recently got a much better heatsink and added a few case fans. I've monitored the temps while playing games and they never go near high enough to cause a blue screen. The only parts I haven't upgraded recently are my cpu, ram, motherboard, and HDD but I've ran tests on each of those in the past without anything showing up. It could be a simple driver issue, but I've posted on forums in the past about this issue and people usually tell me its something hardware, they just don't know what. If you need more info just ask. Any help would be much appreciated, Thanks!

Hi, after several months of having this BSOD and a few weeks of using this computer with less issues after I actually spent time debugging, my problems start coming back to me aGAIn and again and again!!!!!!
Usually this occurs while i game (LoL, Skyrim, Tera) but can happen while i'm not gaming.

I bought a new cpu cooler, used fail safe default settings on my BIOS, cleaned the dust from my computer, updated my drivers, memtest each memory YET I STILL GET BSOD 0x124 daily, sometimes once every hour. On a weekly basis I get a "Stop 0x00000101 A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval." bsod also. Sometimes my computer locks up and freezes and couldn't do anything til i restart it.

Based on what you posted it sounds like your HDD is dying, that coincides with the facts that no dumps are being recorded and the bug check code.



   Warning
The Following Method Should NOT Be Performed On An SSD!
Testing the HDD:
Perform a Disk Check | Disk Check
Then Post the results following | THIS METHOD
Download SeaTools for DOS if you don't want to use a CD to test the HDD you can use YUMI – Multiboot USB Creator to create a bootable USB (instructions are found at the bottom of both pages).
If SeaTools for Windows is unable to recognize your HDD visit HDDdiag and follow the instructions.
If SeaTools For DOS does not recognize the drive;
Boot into the BIOS using the *Fx key.
Look for an entry called SATA Mode (or something similar), it should be set to IDE / AHCI.
It's probably set to AHCI which is why SeaTools doesn't recognize them in the DOS environment.
Set it to IDE then save and exit usually by pressing the F10 key.
Now boot into SeaTools and it should detect the drives.
Start the Long Test and let it run.
Upon completion don't try to boot into Windows as it will only result in a BSOD, go back into the BIOS
and change the SATA setting back to what it was in the first place.

*Popular BIOS access keys.

Post back with the results.

Hello,

A few days ago I installed Windows Updates and installed a game called "Ace Online". After a couple hours of playing, my computer suddenly blue screened. I thought it might be a one time deal, but it has occurred about 3 times per day since then while playing the game. I did a system restore to the day before I updated, re-installed the game with automatic updates off thinking it might be a flawed update, but then it crashed again a few hours later. This game seems to run smoothly on my laptop, but my desktop is definitely better for gaming. Upon the computers restart, it says that it has recovered from a serious error. I get this message

Answer:BSOD playing games randomly (every few hours)

Hello gregevan and welcome to Sevenforums.

BSOD Analyse

Your provided nfo tells that your BIOS date is a pre 2009. Your hardware might be incompatible with the actual Windows version. I'd suggest you to run the Windows 7 Compatibility checker.

Hello! My PC has been getting BSODs quite regularly for the last few weeks and I can't figure out what's causing it. Originally I was seeing WHEA logger errors in eventviewer just before the BSOD occured, so I upped the voltage on my CPU. The errors are gone but the BSODs remain. I should mention I haven't had an issue with my overclock for nearly 3 years now, the WHEA logger errors being a recent thing (seemed to start after a powercut...).

Hi, since last month my computer started to crash in different situations. Sometimes it crashes while playing games (Assassins Creed Unity, GTA V, and today, The Witcher 3), in this case occurs both bsod or game force closes, sometimes it crashes while i browse in Google Chrome (again, bsod and chrome Aw, snap!), and even in idle it crashes (i found out because i left on steam and when i came back it had reseted).

My PC:

Mobo Gigabyte 990-xa-ud3
FX 8150
ZOTAC GTX970
2X4GB AMD PERFOMANCE EDITION DDR3 1600 MHZ
KINGSTOM SSD
SEAGATE HDD
OCZ FATAL1TY 750 W

The last hardware change i did was the gtx 970 three months ago, but it was ok for more than a month. I can't remember any obvious reason for the problems start. I did a clean install of windows but the problem persisted. I checked all my drivers and updated my mobo bios.

Anyway, here are the dumps, i hope someone can help me!

Thanks in advance, and sorry for my english!

Hi community,
I have been getting BSODs randomly, I built this computer this June, I am not sure when the BSOD started as I was busy with university and initially I thought since its haswell it might take some time for stable drivers, may be that's why I avoided it.
Now I have time to diagnose this problem, the BSODs are random, sometimes playing game (BF3) and sometimes even when on skype. I checked the whocrashed program and it said it is caused by hal.dll (error code : 0x124).
Here's what I've done but to no avail:
- Initially I had TR2 Thermaltake (500W) PSU, then a month ago I changed to Seasonic G-Seires 650W but still suffered from BSOD.
- Prime95 fo 12 hours and no problems, all passed.
- Memtest, I think 12 passes (both modules were in at same time)
- All the drivers updated for both video card and motherboard.
- I am not overclocking anything and in bios performance is set to normal (factory).
- I thought it might be caused by drivers, so I enabled driver verifier and fixed all the drivers causing any BSODs.
- Initially when playing Bf3 my CPU temperature would go high, so I also changed my cooler to NH-U14S.
- Upon researching, I thought memory was under voltage, so in BIOS I enabled XMP for ram and after a day of enabling it, I still received the same BSOD.

My thoughts: I am thinking my motherboard is bad, since it is A series only from ASUS which is base for Z87 models.

My temperatures are good as well:
GPU 63 C (while playing bf3)

Sometimes crash my current browsing on internet browser (Google Chrome) too, and ask me for refresh/restore on "blue screen"(or purple?), but I dont know if it has something to do with it. OS has been reinstalled three days ago because of the viruses, but BSODs had appeared even before. I could not install any of the win7s x64 because of some error in the middle of the installation but win7s x86 installation works fine. Then I tried to pull out one of the RAMs and installation of win7 x64 completed successfully, but again I dont know if it has something to do with it. I hope it will help with diagnosing the BSOD problem. I really appreciate any help you can provide and sorry for my english.

How confident are you that the OS is currently clean?
Were files saved from the previous installation and transferred onto the new install, or was the HDD
completely wiped without backing up anything?

I wish there were more bug checks to look at as it will help in establishing a pattern, if nothing else.
Please manually check the minidump folder.

Code:
C:\Windows\minidump
If dump files are present in that folder copy them to the Desktop, zip and upload in your next post.

The single bug check uploaded is 0x19, the most common issue with those is drivers,
looking at the stack we see the activity coming from fltmgr and fileinfo which are Filter Drivers

I'm having problems ever since I've gotten this computer.. I'm just now trying to find a solution for it though lol (had the computer for about 2 years now). Everything was bought brand new and put together by the customer support in Fry's.
Anyways, I'm trying to figure out what's going on with this thing, cause it doesn't always crash repeatedly at the same spot. its just randomly. sometimes going days without doing it. I'll always hear the last sound that it was playing before it crashed (like it's stuck on that one spot), then it's the blue screen of death. the bsod is super huge when it comes up, and when i look at it, all it seems to have is all these 00000's things with an x inbetween them at some point. but no other numbers but 000's .
When I used to have a nvida graphics card, it did the same thing, only more so. the ati graphics card is an onboard graphics card (Gigabyte with a 3d turbo thingy) but since i'm not used to the on board graphic settings, i've never messed with it. and i know it states it can be overclocked but i never tried (mainly because I dont understand what it does, and in my experience it is never a good thing to mess with something that i dont understand lol).
when the system starts back up it will bring up the do i want to start in safe mode, etc screen, then will tell me windows has recovered from a serious crash or something of that nature and ask me if i want to submit it for analysis and check for a solution... which i do. and nothing ever c...

Answer:BSOD playing games and just randomly, error 0x00000124

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings. Also set the BIOS to default, too.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

I built this computer for a friend of mine (the one under my specs) and he's having trouble with BSOD's. I reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Still problems, so I thought the RAM was going bad. We ran memtest86+ and found an error so I replaced the RAM with the one currently in my profile. He ran memtest again and found 0 errors. He is still having BSOD's mostly IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL on ntoskrnl.sys, tcpip.sys, afd,sys, ks, sys, etc. We reinstalled manufacturer drivers from Asrock and installed the latest catalyst from ATI for the HD 5770. We've done some other troubleshooting: CHKDSK found nothing, hard drive SMART wasn't tripped, had no reallocated sectors. I've disabled everything in BIOS that could cause troubles, Cool n quiet, advanced core calibration, etc. I had him run the BSOD posting tool.

Answer:BSOD playing games and randomly at idle error 0x000000d1 mostly

MetalSlugXT, try updating the display driver to the latest WHQL.

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.

Also update the network driver from http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...&GetDown=false.

Also update your wireless USB card's driver. Search for it in http://www.mediatek.com/_en/07_downloads/01_windows.php . In my best guess, it is the cause of most of the crashes.

Hey Guys,

So I am experiencing BSOD at random times. This is frustrating because I am pretty sure I eliminated all the possible reasons for my computer to Blue Screen. I changed my motherboard, I scanned my hard drive, got all the drivers for my video cards, etc. I also checked my ram one by one.

Now here is what info I got on my crash dump files

On Sat 19/01/2013 6:32:11 PM GMT your computer crashed

Bug check description: This indicates that a severe memory management error occurred.
This might be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

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. 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.

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

Hey there, i've been having some issues with my newly upgraded PC. I installed a brand new hard drive with Windows 7 as well as a new GTS250 graphics card. Things have been working smoothly except for I can only play games for about 10 mins maybe before the computer freezes up and crashes. It does this also during full screen video play, but not as severely.

I have an AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+, and 2gb of DDR2 ram.

I've never had a problem with temperature before in my PC, but I think my new graphic card must be running really hot cause my cpu temp has been over 80 degrees Celsius when I checked it after I was playing a game . All my fans, including CPU fan are working just fine to my knowledge and I even installed a new case fan cause my old one took a dump.

I believe temperature is a the culprit but I also wonder if it could be a hardware issue. All of my drivers are up to date though. Thing is I even opened up my case to let the max amount of airflow through, while I was playing a game and it still froze up, so im not exactly sure what else I can do. If my graphic card is too hot for the case I have, then I'll need a new case with better cooling, im just wondering if thats my only option so I wanted to see if I could get some more opinions on what might be going on.

It only does it while playing games, including Modern Warfare 2, Unreal Tournament 3, and Dragon age Origins. And also full screen movies or TV shows.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Suddenly I can no longer watch movies. Games play, cds play, audio fine. But I put in a movie and it's like there's no disc here. We've watched movies on it for over a year, so I checked multiple movies that once worked. I've followed the troubleshooting, tried to update driver. The wizard could find no better driver than what is already being used. I DO NOT get an error message. I just don't get anything to show up either under My Computer or in Media Center or Media player. This stumps me. I read somewhere "Security Update for Windows Media Player 6.4 (KB925398)" was a problem but I even went to add/remove programs and couldn't find that particular update, so I couldn't uninstall that. I have a gateway with a tsstcorp dvd +_ rw mlti format double layer drive and Windows XP Media Center Edition.

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.

 Hi... 
 
I'm having a real issue with my WMP and VLC...
While watching movies, I am getting popping and crackling noises and at the same time, the video will stutter.  This just started happening around 2 weeks ago.  Today, when I tried to play a Hidden Object game, it was doing the same thing.  I have tried updating the drivers for audio, DirX and RealTek.  I have removed and reinstalled both Realtek HD Audio Manager and VLC.  I've also tried adjusting the settings on both the WMP and VLC.  Today I ended up doing a System Restore because I feared that maybe I had changed something I shouldn't have and whatever I was doing seemed to make my problem worse.
 
I'm at my wits end and extremely frustrated.  I'm hoping someone here in Bleeping Computer Land can help me with this.  
 
Thank you.

Answer:Multiple BSODS in the last month while playing games, watching movies

Two issues need addressing before we can investigate the underlying issue.

1-sptd.sys.

Please remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp, called sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure - Downloads DuplexSecure - FAQ

Answer:Frequent Audio/Video stuttering while watching movies, playing games

Hi,

I would suggest you to check the performance in “Safe mode with networking”.

Run the Windows Audio Playback Diagnose and Repair from the below MS FIX-IT: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/AudioPlayback/

You can even try running Microsoft Fix IT’s from the URL mentioned below according to the issue:
http://support.microsoft.com/fixit/

If this issue started occurring after doing some recent software changes on your computer, then I would suggest you to restore your system back to a date when it was working fine. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only.

Hope this helps.

Hi

May I ask you what OS are you using?
Is it Toshiba preinstalled Vista OS or did you install the Win XP?

From my experience the iaStor0 file belongs to the SATA driver and possibly it?s a HDD issue?

Did you change something in BIOS?
Maybe something like SATA mode from AHCI to compatible mode?

Appears to be a "memory corruption" problem. This could be a memory module fault, wrong drivers loaded, corrupt system store or a virus. (or a combination) I would start by running spf scannow followed by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (free version) in safe mode. If neither will run, run a memory test. Some corrupt system store errors showed up so you may end up having to do a Repair install of Windows.

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

Hey everyone.

I built this computer about a month ago and was quite excited to be running a new configuration and my first 64-bit OS. The excitement didn't last very long, however, as I began experiencing some very strange freezes while playing World of Warcraft. For the next few weeks, I tried everything I could possibly have done, from rolling back all my drivers, installing new versions, removing my second GPU, changing video and game settings. I also tried analyzing my memory dump files, but here's the catch: Windows never generated one. For a while, I thought WoW was the problem. But then, while playing another 3D-intensive game a week ago, it happened again and proved to me it wasn't.

The freezing happens at random. From the 30+ or so times it's happened, I can't nail down a single common point as it's just that, random. The two factors that I can see have increased my chances and frequency of freezing were being in Raids with 10 to 25 other players (which increases the strain on the machine) and whenever someone in my network accesses files in my boot drive while the games are running. The former is more common, and the latter has happened once, which caused me to crash 5 or 6 times in a short period of time, more than my nightly average.

As for what happens, the entire machine just freezes in place and becomes completely unresponsive. No errors, no blue screens, keyboard and mouse go dead. It just locks up and stays there for as long as I don't hold down the powe... Read more

Hey there. I've had this problem with my Alienware for about three years--and Ive had it for three years. The reason why I haven't been so gung-ho about fixing the issue is because its pretty sporadic. Anyway, my alienware seems to shut down with no warning when I start playing games (ie: WoW) or generally start using my NVidia card.

AT first I thought it was over heating, but all of my fans are working. I bought a new power supply, cleaned out my computer, and made sure there was no dust around the fans, but still this problem persists. Now, I think its either the power button or the graphic card. (I heard a rumor that the NVidia drivers had a bug that dealt with the temprature of the card.)

Like I said, my temperatures have all been in the average range. I've also done almost every test known to man for this computer, too. From memory to stress testing it, but it all comes out with flying colors. There are no viruses or malware, and I changed my RAM placement twice, just to make sure. Here are the specs:

ABIT motherboard (AA8XE
6800 NVidia Geforce Ultra
2 gigs of RAM
120 gig hard drive

I think thats all you need? So what do you think. Anyway help would be awesome.
 

Answer:My PC randomly shuts off while playing games

Common problem with Alienware computers, and difficult to track down.
What memory modules do you have. Are they the same brand? Are any of them Value Ram?
I would first first consider running a memory test from www.memtest.org. Run it four hours or 7 to 10 passes, which ever takes longer.
Consider changing your CPU Fan if everything else remains the same.
The shortcut fix would be to replace the video graphics card to see what happens. It is a decent hard for regular use, but gamers have trouble with it. I cannot think of any reason why it would be the power button.
What is the brand and rpms of the hard drive?

Check for spyware, trojans, virues an etc.. using spyware terminator (free)
If that find stuff and removes it..
And you still have the blue screen you can check your RAM for errors..
But you might suffer from what I call profile corrupt. Which is an easy fix.
Login into the safemode and delete your user name profile but you have to try to copy your document and settings for that user name other wise you'll loose all your favorites, desktop icons, history, cookies. Programs you install are still intact. Then when you login again Windows will re-create your profile with a working version.

Hey everyone,
i recently put together a rig of my own, with minimal experience, and am having issues running games i believe i should be able to run just fine. these include overwatch, Binding of isaac and Hearthstone.
my specs are as follows
- windows 10 home
- Asus A88XMA motherboard
- AMD A10-7860K quad core 3.6 ghz processor OC to 4.0Ghz
- Corsair H100 v2 CPU cooler

- 32gb (4x8) hyper x fury 1600 ram
- C750M corsair 750w power supply
- 64gb kingston ssd (not sure of model)
- 500 GB HDD (not sure of model)
the problem is when i play these games they will randomly lock up for up to 5 seconds and then resume playing. i was hoping someone would be able to identify if something here is bottlenecking or what the issue may be. i have a dual monitor set up and it mostly happens if i have a window open on the second monitor. i play overwatch on ultra usually with some of the heavier settings turned off like v-sync and shadow details. i appreciate any and all help and hope to hear back soon. thanks

Answer:BSODs randomly. Usually when playing games

Before we can investigate the underlying cause you need to update this driver. Yours is from 2005

Asacpi.sys

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

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 before).

hi, this is kind of a last resort as my friend has almost given up, pretty much during gaming sessions her pc randomly crashes ( screen freezes and then we have to reboot it via restart button ) very rarely it bluescreens sometimes aswell. ( only when she is gaming ) we just cant identify the problem, it got built about a year ago at a pc shop ( we bought the parts they fitted them ) all new parts apart from the SSD/HDD both got wiped, its very random as to when it happens, could be after 30 minutes/sometimes 3 hours, its not a temperature issue as everything stays very cool . under 40c , we just cant work out why this keeps happening, all drivers are up to date tried googleing the problem but nothing has seemed to work, hoping someone here might now the cause of the problem ! the GPU is a R9 380 , the motherboard is a MSI 970 gaming and the CPU is an AMD FX 8350 and it has been happening pretty much since it got built.

Greetings.

I've been experiencing random reboots when playing some games. I've updated the graphic drivers but the problem remains, the computer absolutely grinds to an halt and reboots after 3-5 seconds.

This won't happen in the OS, and it happens mostly when accessing/leaving menus or loading screens while playing. Some games I play perfectly without a single reboot, some are simply impossible to play due to how frequent they get (skyrim for instance, opening doors crashes the system 2/3 times). There's sort of a click sound right as it reboots, but I haven't been able to identify where it comes from.

Now all of this makes me think it's a graphic card problem, probably related with the PSU, since overheating's not an issue (first thing I checked).

I have another PSU but I'm not sure the voltage is right so I'm kinda scared to switch them since I don't want my computer to fry or anything (not really tech savvy tbh).

Here's my specs:


Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 64-Bits
Intel Core i5 650 @ 3.20Ghz
Asus Morherboard
8.00GB RAM
AMD Ati Radeon HD 5700
Samsung HD103SI ATA Device 1TB


Does someone have any hint of what could possibly be happening? Do you reckon there's any articles that could help me determine if my backup PSU will work, just so I can run a test with it?

Any help is appreciated, and many thanks in advance.

Answer:PC Randomly rebooting when playing games.

More info:

The current PSU is a Hantol ATX V2.3 800W and the other one is a Eurotech FPSPA 580W, probably not going to cut it.

AsusProbe says there's a problem with the CPU temp:

Imgur

The CPU fan cooler it not properly attached per se, the 4 locking mechanisms are broken, the cooler is placed on the sockets and working, the pc is stable with no vibrations but should it shake enough the fan could release itself from the motherboard (has yet to happen). Could this be the reason for the resets?

I was assuming it was not a temperature issue for some reasons, it doesn't happen on every game I play, and it's not related to how long I play it either.
It usually happens when accessing loading times or menus (a break from graphical processing). I've finished playing some games in single settings of sometimes 8+ hours and the computer didn't crash once. I've played some games for the same amount of time and it rebooted once or twice, and some other games like Skyrim I can play in the open world for hours where there's no loadings but once I get to a town and proceed to open and close doors the computer crashes constantly. Or sometimes it crashes simply because I hit the Quicksave button. This is what had me thinking it could be the graphic driver, hence updating it.

Hi there,

I've been struggling with an issue now for a few months, but I'm no closer to finding out the source.

My PC just restarts itself randomly when playing games (games such as PUBG, for example). There is no real pattern to the restarts, they just occur randomly. Sometimes I can play for 2-3 hours, with no issues. On other occasions, the PC can restart 3-4 times in under 10 minutes. I've done some basic checks, such as check temps (temps are fine), cleaned my PC, run anti-virus software, and the like, but the issue still occurs.

I'm thinking it could be PSU related perhaps? I've had my PSU now for going on three years, no issues experienced until now. There is no error message with the restarts, my PC just simply turns off and on again automatically.

Note that this seems to happen with high-intensity games.

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 60 Stepping 3
Processor Count: 8
RAM: 16332 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970, -1 Mb
Hard Drives: C: 117 GB (26 GB Free); E: 931 GB (197 GB Free);
Motherboard: MSI, Z97 GAMING 5 (MS-7917)
PSU: Corsair CX750M

Any ideas? Any help would be much appreciated.

Answer:BSOD playing movies, Hp Elitebook 8540p

Quote:
8 of 13 point to this
"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps

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 quit playing CS:GO because of this problem, but the problem also started to occur while playing another game (Saints Row IV in this case).

Strange, ive fixed it.
It seem's a week of crap finally paid off.
I (pointlessly now that this breakthrough occured) uninstalled, clean sweeped in safe mode, and re installed from Omega to latest Catalyst (this didnt fix the problem sadly) then I went into Bios and noticed my memory was forced to DDR400, which is fine...or so I thought, I decided to set it to Auto and set AC97 to FORCE audio for me, i'm not sure which one fixed the problem, but I did notice it scaled my memory down to DDR333, although I must confess I dont notice any difference in loading or anything, in fact everything seem's perfect, only without crashes to ruin my fun
Re did my 3D mark 2003 and got more Marks than I did originally with my Omega Drivers, so i'll just stop messing about incase it all goes wrong again lol, was tempted to re install Omega's but nah, i'll just forget that one, yeah.

3D Mark 2003 = 11805 Marks or something to that degree

Answer:Computer randomly shuts down when playing games

Hi

Are your drivers upto date, mainly the graphics card? also check Device Manager for any yellow ! marks.

Does this only happen when playing games or has the random shutdown happened when using other applications?

It could well be your PSU is a little underpower for all the hardware you have connected, as even USB devices can draw power

What are your system temps and you can use Speedfan to let us know these as random shutdowns can be where the temp of motherboard , CPU and GPU hit a high.

In Event Viewer at the exact time of a shutdown are there any error warnings, likely in System or Application logs, if so paste them into a notepad file and attach to your next post as per HOW TO: Attach Items To Your Post [/QUOTE]
