BSOD Playing various games, closing games, no overheating.

Question: BSOD Playing various games, closing games, no overheating.

Hello, first time poster looking for help as I can't diagnose my issue after trying numerous things. Currently when I play a game the BSOD happens randomly, I can go a whole day without it, or it can happen frequently. It happens the most when I close or exit a game, then it'll kick to a blue screen.

I really appreciate what you guys do and I hope I followed all the instructions right on how to post my logs and stuff, here's the attachment and some basic system specs:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
I have reinstalled to this computer numerous times.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad q9550 @ 2.83 ghz

GPU: Radeon HD 5770

Mem: 4 Gigs of Memory

Motherboard: p5n32-e sli nforce 680i chipset

Preferred Solution: BSOD Playing various games, closing games, no overheating.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Before we can even begin to find the underlying cause you need to update the following drivers. Especially asacpi.sys. Yours is from 2005

ASACPI.sys 3/27/2005 10:30:36 PM
Lycosa.sys 1/18/2008 4:51:42 AM
nvm62x64.sys 10/17/2008 5:01:06 PM
netr28x.sys 2/25/2009 11:02:09 PM
How To Find Drivers:

- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

Certain games are causing my pc to just blue screen randomly now (skyrim, BFBC2). I've been monitoring my gpu and cpu temps with afterburner and aren't noticing anything out of the ordinary. Ive included and attached some event logs/dump files. Im thinking it might be my PSU. I do keep my pc running almost 24/7.

Here is my computer specs

Answer:BSOD after playing certain games. Not sure if overheating

A stray crash dump is not enough. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions . Attach the data with your reply post.

Also as you have doubt about overheating, 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 .

I have a HP Probook 4545s with AMD A4-4300m 4 GB of ram and AMD Radeon 7420g.The CPU temp suddenly increases from 35 ?C in idle to 85 ?C in a few seconds and drops back again to 35.This is really annoying cause the fan gets really loud for a few seconds.Also when I use Skype,or playing games after 15-20 minutes it shuts down(actually it hibernates).When i turn it on again it shows that the max cpu temp was over 120 ?C .Also lately I started getting BSOD KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR - 0x0000007A.The laptop is three months old and it was used for browsing.
Any suggestions?

Answer:Laptop overheating,BSOD while playing games

HP laptops are well known for over heating , I had to send mine back to HP because after just 6months from new because it wouldn't stay on for over 5 minutes it just over heated straight away so I think anyone who has a HP laptop needs a can of compressed air to keep the fan and fans vents clean, HP website/ signs of overheating and using compressed air to clean the fan and vents so my advice would be before you deal with the error message clean the fan and vents so hopefully your laptop will stay on and not over heat and then you'll beable to run CHKDSK without the laptop cutting out half way through ( which would be bad for the CHKDSK process and the laptop )

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!

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.

Thanks for your time

Hi everyone, My Lenovo Z500 laptop overheats while playing games. Just now, i was playing a CS:GO Competitive match on this laptop (The laptop was pluged in so it cannot be possible that it ran out of battery). Suddenly, without warning, the screen and power LED turned off. I immediately turned on the laptop and i heard the fan running at full blast (and thats why i assume that it was overheating). The computer showed me a screen before the Windows is starting screen that said it did not turn off properly. I was obviously banned from CS:GO for a few days... Specs:Intel i5 3230M (2 cores 4 threads)8GB RAMNvidia GT 740M Is it possible to set the fan to run faster? I'm a headphone user so the noise won't bother me. Thanks 

Answer:Overheating Z500 while playing games

Hi Sonny8888,
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
I?m sorry to hear that your Z500 Laptop is overheating while playing games. Hence, I would suggest you to check if there are any Dust/Foreign particles stuck in the Air out vents and also perform the ?Dust Removal? using the LEM (Lenovo Energy Management) installed in the computer and make sure you place the computer in a flat surface while using it to increase the Air Flow. Please let me know the findings after performing these steps.
Hope to hear back soon
Best Regards
Shiva Kumar

Hi Since a few weeks, my Elitebook becomes very hot while playing games. (Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, Cities: Skylines, The Crew...)After getting really too hot to put my hand anywhere near the exhaust port, my laptop's screen shuts down.When I reboot the system after a while, everything seems to work again. Could it be that the cooling system doesn't manage to keep up with the heat my graphics card generates while playing these games? I've allready cleaned the vents, but the problem persists.The graphics card I'm currently using is an AMD firepro M4000.I've tried looking for solutions and even possibilities to upgrade my graphics card, but it seems the latest models use an AMD firepro M5950, so I'm not sure wether the suggested graphics cards would be compatible with my system. Can anybody help me with this? I've allways been very happy with my laptop, and i'd rather not buy a new one if this problem could be solved by replacing a part or another less extreme operation. thx

Idk anything about your model of laptop, but i have the z580 that gets really warm too. 78 - 82*C when playing games like Starcraft 2. I have a desktop computer fan that runs of USB. + a 18$ cooling pad. But they both only keep the laptop 1 - 3 *c diffrence.  So.. Idk what to do there ither. unless I just take off the bottom of the **bleep** thing and set it on a window box fan...  loool or spend 100$ on a better cooling pad.. Idk. but even the more expesnsive ones have reviews saying only 1-5*c in diffrence.  And i cant find anyone that knows how to reccommend a good cooling pad. Everyone I tlak to just says it means its a **bleep**y laptop and to upgrade. But thats not useful...

Hello Sevenforums i got this problem playing high performance games..

When i enter the following games (below) my graphic hits 75 - 85 celcius (what worries me is the world of warcraft... It's only on HIGH and it goes to almost 90 celcius)

World of warcraft (high)
Battlefield 3 (Ultra)
Guild wars 2 (Ultra)

I was reading abit about this problem on google and saw a person telling another one that was having the same problem as me that a PSU could heat up your GPU if it is just under your GPU..

- My PSU is not far from my GPU and the fan on my PSU is almost just up against my GPU so i kinda wonder can a PSU really heat up my GPU that much?

My cousin got a very tiny case for his pc, he got a gtx 560ti and hits 65 - 70 celcius and goes 50fps in stormwind with 60+ players around him and 200 - 250fps outside stormwind. in stormwind i got 20 fps and in world i got 60 - 100 fps.

I got a Evga GTX 580 1534MB myself and should be alot better then the gtx 560TI.. He also runs 20 - 30 fps higher then me in Guild wars (60 - 90fps) i am running 30 - 50fps..

Any help would help me.. I've updated my specs and i will upload a picture of the inside of my pc when i get back my phone tomorrow!

Battlefield runs smooth but my pc is overheating.

Answer:GTX 580 overheating playing High Performance games

A 580 draws more power, and delivers far more performance than a 560 so it is not thta stragnge it will run warmer.

75-85C for a 580 is normal. Now, if you simply want it to run cooler theres a couple things you should do.

1. Clean out your case with some compressed air. Clean all the fans, filters and inside of everything well to get rid of as much dust as you can.

2. Improve airflow.
You'll want to make sure you have plenty of cool air cioming in, and towards the GPU from the front of the case. make sure there are no wires etc that can obstruct the airflow.

3. And lastly, you can use a program like eVGA Precision or Afterburner and create a custom fan profile. I have mine set to ramp up on the slope type settings. At 70C its running the fan at 60% which keeps it much cooler than the default speeds. Never really goes over 65-70 under heavy load.
Just depends on how cool you want it to run, how much airflow you have now, and how much noise you are willing to add to your PC. Faster fan speeds do improve temps, but increase noise a good deal too.

Also, on framerates.
You must consider the game settings used, as well as resolution. If hes running a lower resolution, it will be easier to get hifgher FPS with less for example.

Also, depending on your monitor, Vsync should be used.

heres why.
Lets say your monitor is 60hz. This means it can only display 60FPS, no matter what. If your GPU is drawing 10,000 FPS it doesnt matter. Only 60FPs gets displayed on the screen... Read more

I find when i am playing war thunder for only a few minutes the keyboard heats up to the point where I am literally burning my fingers!! this is not acceptable for a laptop that was advertised as a gaming rig. I would go so far to say that from a health and safety perspective this laptop is faulty and should be taken back and replaced. Could somebody on these boards please provide me with the latest information and any potential fixes for this issue before I take it back. Many Thanks Paul

My graphic card could run every game until a month ago without any problems. But a moth ago it started to overheat on games like AC III and the picture was very laggy and the fan was making very loud noises, I`m not really a expert on computers so I`m here for a opinion on what should I do. Here is to understand the problem some pictures of my temperatures:

The first one is while playing Fifa 13, and I even adjusted my visual settings for best performance.
The second one is on my normal settings when I wasn`t doing anything.

I realized that my graphics card (Geforce 6800GT)idles at 59C, but slowly builds up to 70C when I play a game. At this point, my mouse light starts to flicker, and freeze constantly etc etc. There are also chances of getting a nv4_mini.sys BSoD. My question is, is it normal for the 6800GT to go up 10C just by playing a game? It isnt even that graphic intensive (CS 1.6, Warcraft 3). Currently, I have one side of the PC case opened for more air flow. It lowered temperatures a bit (i use to have temperatures up to 80C) but it still doesn't seem to be enough. Are there any options besides buying fans?

Answer:Graphics Card Overheating while playing games

It is normal for temperatures to rise during a game but your temperatures are a bit high. You could remove the heatsink and fan, clean the old thermal compound off and reapply some Arctic Silver and reinstall the heatsink/fan to the graphics card. As long as your fan is capable of getting up to full song, your temps should go down. Anyway, it's cheap to try.

Hi, I've recently upgraded my computer, here's the current spec:

CPU : Intel Core2Duo E6850 3.0GHz

Motherboard : Intel Classic Series DG31PR

RAM : Kingston 2GB 667MHz

HDD : 160GB

Video Card : ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT

PSU : 450W

Everything's fine except when I play games like NeverwinterNights 2 and Half-Life 2: Lost Coast. The computer suddenly hangs and the screen blanks out after about 5-6 minutes everytime I play those games. The computer cannot reset, I have to manually turn off the power and turn on again to restart. What is the problem? My friend says it could be overheating. My idle computer temperature is around 66-69C. Is this normal? If not, what should I do?


Answer:Sudden crashes while playing games...overheating?

I think the temp is too high and while you play games it will raise. did you also upgrade the cpu fan? Idle temp for intels should be 40 to 45 C.
check heat transfer paste, fan, maybe the psu gets too hot and warms up the whole desktop?

When I don't play the temp is around 55. I try to play CoD Black Ops 2 and the CPU temp grows in an instant and I can't play the **bleep** game. The only moment I could really play the game was when I used it outside, its winter, so the laptop was really cool. A cooling pad wont help with more then 10 degrees but it really is not enough. I've seen many people have problems with this processor i3 2348. GPU is 635m nvidia. It's so frustrating for a laptop to seem to be so good but actually be quite weak fro its price. The specs mean nothing if you can't use them. Since I don't think I can fix it I would like to know what kind of different processor I could update to.

I have this PC for years, and last year my GPU started overheating (The same game I've played with 70°C was now 100°C), so I cleaned everything and Reapplied the Thermal Paste on the processor. So everything was back to normal.
But last month, it started all again, but now everything is clean. Just to make sure, I cleaned it again but when I play a game like Overwatch, when the GPU is at 70°C, the game runs on 60 frames per second. But after 10min playing, the GPU is already on 103°C and the FPS has a massive drop to 20~25. This all started last month.
Could someone help me? Please, I know it isn't supposed to be like this.

It's been a year and a half since I built my and after the initital construction I've had very few problems. The past couple of months however I've noticed the fans gets really noisy when playing games.
So I opened it up and gave it a good clean for the second time since purchase, this time giving it a more intense clean taking parts out to get at them properly. It took quite a lot of cotton buds to get rid of the dust. Unfortunately the clean did nothing for the noise.
I have the stock CPU cooling fan, 2 blue LED fans and a normal plastic one (which has recently started wobbling after the recent clean so I'm probably going to have to get a new one anyway) and two small side fans. I was just on wasteland 2 and it was making the loud noise since starting up so I ended up putting my headphones on to try and ignore it and I realised at this point I should probably get to the bottom of it.
After restarting and entering the BIOS the CPU temperature was hovering around 44C, with the CPU fan spinning at 1600rpm and the two Blue led fans around 1200rpm.

Obvious to anyone. You have three malware apps running live at the same time. You have Avast, Kaspersky, and AVG.

You need to remove them all and install Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST.

If you continue to crash even after removing them upload the DMP file as you have old drivers that need updating.

Hello. Recently I've had many computer crashes with various error messages. I've made sure that crash dumps are enabled but haven't received any for any of the crashes. The crashes have happened while playing games sometimes and other times after closing games. I've run memtest for many passes multiple times, I've also tried re-seating my RAM but those didn't seem to work. I can't find any drivers that are out of date either. I've checked the event viewer and there hasn't been anything that seemed useful in there. I'll attach some of those files and pictures of some of the bluescreens. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Multiple blue screens when playing / after closing games. No minidumps

I forgot to mention that it would be best if I could find a solution before the 30th.

My Satellite L50T-A-196 shuts down alone after overheating, especially when playing games (such as Civilization 5 or Football manager 2014). This doesn't happen during normal laptop usage.

I am not blocking the fans; in fact I always raise the laptop in a way to ensure they're not blocked.

What I?ve realized is that I have both NVIDIA and Intel graphics cards installed, and I can't seem to make the NVIDIA the default one. I?m not sure if this is related to the issue or not.

Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:New Satellite L50T-A196 is overheating eapecially when playing games


It is not easy to say anything about that. Before you start some game try to exit all useless processes, stop useless background activities and use high performance power plan.

As far as I know there is no some special trick to avoid such issues.

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 doesn't happen often but sometimes it freezes for a second while loading a certain game which works fine on another day and gives BSOD. Sometimes it happens after I've loaded the game and am in the moment of playing. My hardware is more than enough for the games I run and I even run them on low-mid even though I can manage high settings. The games I usually run are CS:GO, League of Legends and Modern Warfare 3 [rarely play; received 1 BSOD while loading it]

I've uploaded my dump files.

Hello all, recently my pc began locking up, not BSOD, but locking up. I decided it was time to clean it out, and did so. After cleaning out my pc and updating video drivers I began experiencing error 3B, and changed my GPU drivers again to a version one previous to the newest as I suspected the new drivers were the cause of my crashes. After doing this, I have been getting BSOD 50, which is confusing as that is a memory issue as far as I know.

I have the crash dumps available in the file.

I am skeptical that it is a memory issue, but I am sure you all will know more from the dump logs.

Hi guys, first post here.

I'm having a problem with my graphics card. It is an XFX triple X edition GTX275 and I am using it to power 2 x 24" monitors. I have had the card for around a year without any noticeable problems. However, during the past 2 weeks I have been getting BSOD on closing down of games or alt-tabbing during games. The card doesn't BSOD any other time or crash during game play but whenever I close down a game or alt tab out of a game (tried on CoD:MW2 and The Sims 3) It always blue screens. I have upgraded and installed new drivers with no affect. I have also ran Furmark stress test for 10 minutes and other than getting a bit hot (levelling at 102) it ran fine without BSOD. Anyone help me out on any idea what the problem is? The stop code is always 0x03b.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Answer:GTX 275 BSOD on games closing

0x3B are usually caused by faulty video drivers. When you updated your drivers did you first use something like Driver Sweeper to make sure all the old drivers were gone?

Hello, everyone,

I'll try to give as much information as I can in the first post to make this as, hopefully, easy as possible.

Like the title says, I get a BSoD occasionally when I try to start playing a game or when I try to close a game. From what I can recall, I have not had an actual BSoD while actively playing a game. Additionally, this only seems to happen with games I have on Steam, although I may not be remembering perfectly. Specifically speaking, when I double click on a shortcut for a Steam game, double click the name of a game in the Steam client, X out of a game or properly exit from a game through a menu, I get the BSoD.

Unfortunately, I do not have all of the log files from my previous crashes, only the most recent one, from today. From what I can remember, they haven't all been the same .dll error. I commonly see win32k, like today, but I have seen at least 4 other exception errors previously.

The BSoDs are very sporadic. Sometimes I can go several weeks without having one, sometimes I have 3 or more in a day. I've had them happen from several different games on Steam now, and even that isn't consistent. Today it happened with Torchlight 2; when I rebooted I tried loading the game again and did so without issue. When I reformatted my computer several months ago, I also had a few BSoD when installing games to my secondary hard drive, through Steam as well as other methods (other distribution clients, CDs, etc.). However, I have not had that issue when recen... Read more

Apologies for my poor english.

I've been having some BSOD and freezing issues starting somewhere around this month. There are some random older .dmp files here too but the ones that are the real problem are the ones created this month.

As i said in the title, these crashes usually happen after playing games. Most of the time it's a freeze, but sometimes it's a BSOD.

I have not made any hardware changes to my computer recently and it has been working fine before this.

Also, when the freezes happen my screen often looks corrupted with weird lines going horizontally across plus the current sounds going in a really fast loop.

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.

SP1 isn't installed, please do the following:

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&#63;
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 &#40;SP1&#41; for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

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

Last summer I was downstairs on my pc connected to an ethernet to the router. Internet was great no problems really.. I have a twin brother who is upstairs and he used wireless he lagged alot and he only had problems if I was on my computer and that went on for a while. I have a grandfather who sat infront of me while I was on my pc and I couldnt do it so I moved upstairs but I didnt have a wireless pci adapter for my pc I had a wifi adapter which you plug in the wall to wirelessy connect to the router downstairs and I just put my pc's ethernet into the wireless adapter. I used that for a little bit until I couldnt take the high ping I was getting in game servers forcing me to just move my pc in the corner of my room and I havent been on it since. I have been playing ps4 using a wireless connect to the router downstairs. I have connection problems off and on but not every day. I today just got back on my pc and I am expieriencing constant lag and disconnection from games and discord. My router is the NightHawk AC1700 ,my Adapter is a tplink adapter. What can I do to increase my internet speeds I just dont want so much lag and horrible ping when I play my pc games with my friends.. and a reminder my router is downstairs with the modem.

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

I have been having BSOD for a while now and need some help resolving them.

System specs:

Windows 7 64-bit
Service pack 1

Motherboard: M4A87TD evo
Processor: AMD Phenom II 955 3.2GHz
RAM: Sector 5 PGV386 1600ELK DDR3 2x4GB
Video Card: PNY Geforce 440 GT

I have tried updating drivers and and even re-formated windows and reinstalled everything, but still getting the blue screens.

It seems to me that the problem started when i installed the geforce nvidia 295.73 drivers, but im not sure this was the original problem. I have tried reinstalling nvidia 265.58 through the newest 296.10. they all seem to give BSOD. Thought it seems more frequent with the newer drivers. Today i have had 4 BSOD while playing Skyrim.

I am not sure why but a dump file is not always created only about 50% of the time. I am posting the ones that i have.

I am also posting the system health check and the Dump system file collection from jcgriff2.

Any help would be great.

Answer:BSOD while playing games

Just FYI - a recent poster (early Nov 2011) states that they were advised by Asus to manually set their memory settings/timings/voltages because of issues with the M4 series of motherboards.
You can get the settings/timings/voltages from the website of your RAM manufacturer.

Kaspersky drivers date from 2009 to 2011. I'd suggest updating to the latest version, or uninstalling and using a free antivirus.

Please update your AMD chipset drivers from the AMD website - as several of them date from 2009.
I believe that these are the correct drivers: AMD Chipset Drivers

I have no idea what the EVO Mouse stuff is for - but do you need it in addition to the Microsoft Mouse stuff? If not, please uninstall it.

nVidia video drivers date from early 2011. Please update them.

If all this doesn't fix it, then post back and we'll see about running Driver Verifier on 3rd party drivers.

Bugcheck 0xA0000001 is a 3rd party (non-Microsoft) private bugcheck only used by ATI.

Try updating video drivers, rolling back video drivers; other versions of ATI drivers.

Lastly, swap out the new card for the old & see if BSODs continue.

Question: BSOD playing games


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

Looking at the crash dump files I would suggest that the problem is associated with a hardware error on the SSD.

This is further backed up by numerous error logs associated with the disk.

I see you have tried CHKDSK - perhaps you can try some of the other options listed in this tutorial (option 3 or 4):

Hello guys and girls.

I recently had a new system built by my friend and it was running perfect for a day, then out of no where I started getting random BSoD during game-play.

Here is an image:

I have made a .zip file containing information about my PC system. If you don't mind having a look, I would be grateful!

Answer:BSoD while playing games.

Hello CJN and welcome to Seven Forums.

I think OCing an i5 to 4.6 is pushing things a bit. Until you can get a handle on the BSODs, I'd suggest restoring default values. The stop error 0x101 is also known as a CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT. Very difficult to troubleshoot. One of the best troubleshooting guides I've seen is here:

To be more specific your files state
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

So over the past maybe 2 days ive been having some issues with random (sort of) bsod crashes. I just recently replaced my vid card (around a month and a half ago) with a gtx 970. Ive only tried this with one game however it seems space engineers causes it and it takes a good 10 min to crash, the only weird thing in this whole deal is last night, i was doing some graphics work in and i had youtube running(if that will make any difference) and it crashed on me then too, same screen as space engineers. A buddy of mine said he has the same issue (his started a few days before mine did) and had mention something about nvidia drivers and windows ten not getting along with each other with direct X. I was wondering if there is a fix or workaround for this. I also copied the details of the crash from windows.

Hi, Thanks in advance for any help. Pc started crashng a day or so ago, today when it did it I was playing Minecraft and got a blue screen. It also happend when I was playing Skyrim. It has also happend when no games have been on.

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

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

Answer:BSOD mainly when playing games

Welcome aboard. There are multiple reason of the crashes.

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

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

► Also, AMD SATA Controller AHCI 1.2 Device Driver

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

► uninstall the following programs

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

Dump blames Kaspersky. Record the serial for your Kaspersky and keep in reference. Then uninstall Kaspersky.
Replace with MSE, please:

Daemon Tools/Alcohol 120% needs to be removed - as they are a known cause of BSOD with Win 7. Run this SPTD uninstaller when it is removed: DuplexSecure - Downloads
Select Uninstall; do not select reinstall

Use MagicDisc as an alternative: Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) Overview

If you are overclocking anything - please stop and return to default values.

Probably heat related because of time frames you mention and when they occur. You're overclocking too much, if you are at all.

Answer:BSOD when playing games.

Hi, welcome to the forums This problem can be caused by several things.  Firstly, try downloading the latest graphics drivers and see if that helps the situation at all.If not, I would suspect faulty memory, as the integrated graphics use system RAM rather than their own.  Download Memtest, burn it to a disk, boot from it and let it run, preferably overnight.  Any errors will mean you have a faulty stick of RAM, which would need replacing.Hope this makes sense, and helps

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.

I'm new here, so please bear with me. I am getting a myriad of BSODs, all while playing Borderlands and Left for Dead (maybe it happens with other games too, but I haven't noticed it yet). What is the process for getting help? I have several DMP files that I can post. Here they are in a zip file.

Thanks for any help you can give me!

Answer:BSOD while playing games -- please help!

Posting the DMP files is sufficient.

Most of these occur while the OS DirectX kernel is attempting to work with memory buffers supplied by the nvidia video driver. In general, that'll come down to one of:

1) Overclocking or undercooling - make sure your machine is not subjected to either.
2) Bugs in the nvidia driver.
3) Unobvious interference from another driver which is mangling the relevant data.
4) A hardware defect, most likely in the video card itself.

Is the machine overclocked?

Hey, this is my first post so bare with me :P.

I am getting some BSOD when playing games. Somtimes it will happen, sometimes it won't. If it is going to happen then it will usually happen within 10 minutes of starting the game. It also seems that a simple reboot (rebooting after the BSOD) is not sufficient. I have to cut the power via the power switch on the psu.

I have read some minidumps but with my limited knowledge I don't really know what I am looking at. All i can see from these that might be of some use is;

Answer:BSOD When playing games

Hi and welcome to 7F.

I only read the latest two files, but it's enough for me to recommend that you update your driver for your video card to the latest from NVIDIA's website.

I see there are two separate games that crashed, and although it could be due to numerous reasons, updating your video card driver is an excellent start.

It's good practice to update all drivers possible, so here are your motherboard ones.

And my first post advice would not be complete without suggesting a bios update as well.

Make these changes if necessary, and let us know how it goes.

You could also look into setting the precise voltage and timings on your motherboard recommended for your particular model of ram, from ram maker's site.

Answer:BSOD playing any games

Like your self help.
Well done!
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:

* 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:

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

Hey everybody,

I'm hoping you can help me out with this one:
Like three weeks ago I bought a new pc (all seperated components) and since the moment I start playing games, the games crash or get me a blue screen. This usually happens when I played the game a while, or when I give the pc actions to follow (like with Need for Speed, when I want to go to another race or load cars etc). This happens with all games I play. Sometimes I get a blue screen, last time it had the code: 0x1000008e KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED.

I was hoping you could help me out what to do.. I updated all the drivers, reinstalled windows, reinstalled the games, BIOS update, sound card update, use legal games etc etc. I attached the dump file from the last blue screen I had (all the others are deleted because I just recently reinstalled windows) Hopefully you can help me further..

Thanks a lot

What you describe usually points to a hardware problem. While waiting for a reply, I'd suggest starting with this free video card test:


FurMark download site: FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
NOTE: Set the alarm to go off at 90?C. Then watch the system from that point on. If the system doesn't display a temperature, watch it constantly and turn it off at the first sign of video problems. DO NOT leave it it unmonitored, it can DAMAGE your video card!!!
If the temperature gets above 100?C, quit the test - the video card is overheating.
- Click "Quit" to exit

Just FYI, here's the full list of my recommended hardware diagnostic/stress tests:

Answer:BSOD 7f when playing certain games

Hi and welcome to SF!

All of the 3 minidumps pointed to amd8k.sys, which is AMD CPU drivers, please download and install fresh copy driver of it to see if it fix the problem

Also, you have some drivers that in need for updating:

UsbFltr UsbFltr.sys Wed Apr 11 15:23:47 2007 (461C9B13)
nvm62x32 nvm62x32.sys Sat Oct 18 04:00:39 2008 (48F8FCF7)
DB3G DB3G.sys Mon Apr 25 12:43:56 2005 (426C839C)
ASACPI ASACPI.sys Fri Aug 13 09:52:52 2004 (411C2D04)
Please read this short article to know how to update ASACPI.sys

Also, I can see that you have that BSODs occur while playing games. Bugcheck code 7F can refer to third party firewall that cause it.
In looking through your drivers, I see that you have AVG anti virus installed. AVG is known to cause BSOD, on some systems. I suggest that you uninstall it while trouble shooting using the uninstall tool > Info > Tool (32bit) - Tool (64 bit). If you have AVG Identity Protection installed, uninstall it also >Info > Tool. I recommend that you install MSE and make sure Windows Firewall is turned on. (Just for testing purpose only)

BugCheck 7F, {d, 0, 0, 0}

Probably caused by : amdk8.sys ( amdk8!C1Halt+4 )
