BSOD with Torrex on one laptop but not another. Both running win 10

Question: BSOD with Torrex on one laptop but not another. Both running win 10

As per the instructions here I am attaching the required zip file. I get BSOD every 5 mins running Torrex for win 10. I contacted Torrex support and they sent me a beta version but without success on an HP laptop. With a Lenovo Torrex runs without any problems. I had the HP reformatted twice to factory settings by a technician but no resolution. I updated all drivers still no resolution.

Preferred Solution: BSOD with Torrex on one laptop but not another. Both running win 10

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.)

Answer: BSOD with Torrex on one laptop but not another. Both running win 10

Please uninstall following programs and use a restore point to revert back the changes they have made.

If there is no restore point available from before any of these programs were installed then you may need to perform a clean installation of Windows 10. Most of these programs are from IObit who has a very poor reputation, the programs may cause various of problems including but not limited to BSODs, performance issues and unbootable systems.

Computer boots to blue screen after showing Windows splash screen and then immediately restarts. Windows Stop code 0X0000007E (0X80000003, 0X805C370C, 0XBACCB2B4, 0XBACCAFB0). Computer will not boot in safe mode or last known good configuration. I have decided that I will need to reload windows but have several very important files on hard drive that I need to get off first. As it stands, I have 2.5" drive loaded into external hard drive enclosure. Only problem is that 2.5" drive has drive letter of C: like every other computer I have in my house. Is there anyway to change this letter to view files via usb enclosure? Any way to change drive path of C: volume on any other computer?

Answer:BSOD Toshiba Laptop running XP SP3

That never makes a difference when I carry out that operation - the only C:\ drive that matters is the one that's already running the OS before you plug the external in and your laptop drive will be given the next letter available.

* I started with running 'memtest', which was the first tip I read, and let that run overnight going through eight cycles. It found no issues
* I've used the Laptops own utilities to analyse the hard disk, and it found no errors
* I downloaded Linux, ran it from CD, and recovered all my files to a portable hard disk
* I made a boot disk, getting the boot.ini file, and ntldr files from another machine. However, it seems my problem lies when Windows XP begins to start, so a boot disk doesn't help my problem

I have no Windows XP disk. Dell didn't supply this. I have no floppy drive, only CD-ROM.

Answer:BSOD - Unable to get my Laptop Running again

Hi thekiltman, and welcome to TSF !

First of all congrats for the research and tests you've already done, makes our job easier

Useful links :
technical support for Dell Inspiron 1300
Service manual for Dell Inspiron 1300

error 0x24 relates to some problem with the ntfs file system, could mean the file system is corrupt or the hard drive is failing.

You said you used the utilities to test for errors, make sure you ran the extended test on the hard drive : press F12 at startup, run the 32-bit Dell diagnostics and select extended test. Follow the instructions and report if there are any errors. If the 32 bit utilities don't work because you wiped the utility partition and you don't have the ressource disk then follow the instructions under step 2 in the extended diagnostic instructions to download the utilities.

If all is fine with the hard drive then grab a regular XP CD (borrow one from a friend), boot the laptop on it (change the boot order priority in the bios if needed), press 'R' at the first screen to access the recovery console and once at the c:\windows> prompt run chkdsk c: /R. Once the scan is over report the results (corrections to the file system, bad sectors, ...), restart the laptop without the CD and see if there's any improvement.

If you got hard drive related errors in the F12 diagnostics or if you've got bad sectors when running chkdsk and repairing them didn't fix the issue then you will probably need to replace the hard drive.

I've examined all of the dump files with BlueScreenView from NirSoft. The result is always the same. The offending file is ntoskrnl.exe and the error code is 0x0000009f and the bug check string is DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE.
The BSODs were daily, usually more than one/day. After I installed the BIOS and other HP updates the BSODs stopped for almost a month. Now they're back and there were 2 yesterday. None today so far.
The laptop is a HP 15-g023cl Notebook PC (ENERGY STAR) running Windows 8.1. I've updated the BIOS and all available firmware and driver updates. All Critical and Important Windows updates are installed. Of the Optional updates are 2 driver updates, AMD PSP
1.0 Device and HP Wireless Button Driver. I'm reluctant to install those 2 updates due to the bad history of installing hardware/driver updates from WU.
I checked the HP site again and the only driver update was for the Card Reader. I installed it though I doubt that has anything to do with the BSOD.
I'm pretty much stumped now what to do. Other than the BSODs the laptop runs fine. If there was a specific driver file identified by BlueScreenVew I'd have something to go on, but when it just identifies ntoskrnl.exe as the offender, I'm at a loss as to
what to do.

About 4 months ago I performed a number of upgrades to my 4 year old Lenovo SL400 laptop.

I upgraded to a Seagate Momentus hybrid drive, upgraded my CPU, installed new RAM, purchased a new 9-cell battery and performed a clean intstall of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (the computer came with Vista - Windows 7 was a retail upgrade).

I had several BSOD crashes which only happened when running on battery power. I was sure the battery was the culprit and RMA'd to the vendor for a replacement. I still have the issue with the replacement.

I notice a screen flicker a second or two before the crash. About half the time the computer recovers without crashing.

I've attached the dump files and system health report.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Your BSODs are cause by this driver.
I normally tell members to update the driver by going to the manufacturers website. But I will not tell you that. Your computer is new, I would contact the company. If you start updating drivers etc you could void your warranty. I gave the facts, now the choice is yours.

Hi all,

I have a Dell Dimension E310, service tag G84HF91. It is running Windows XP Professional in a Raid 1 configuration.

I managed to get a virus, so I booted into safe mode and ran ComboFix.

ComboFix prompted that it detected the presence of rootkits and needed to restart. After the machine restarted I received a BSoD while trying to go into Safe Mode. I attempted a normal boot and receive a BSoD as well. When booting into safe mode before the BSoD it pauses on loading Mup.sys.

My first thought was to attempt a repair install however I'm not sure how to go about doing that with the Raid setup. I just want to get the machine booting properly and I'll deal with the virus after which is why I chose this forum not the security one. If it's in the wrong place please move it for me.

I appreciate any and all input ahead of time. Thanks!

Hi,Thanks in advance for any help you can suggest.I have a HP Compaq laptop using Windows vista 'basic' OS.The battery pack always has to plugged into the mains otherwise the laptop will run out of battery and turn itself off (not the main problem i need solving).I had a few programmes running and wasn't aware that the power adaptor had slipped out and the laptop ran out of battery and shutdown automatically ( not through the proper procedure).Ever since this happened the laptop has been running poorly.For 1, whenever User Account Control pops up for a programme and I press continue, the screen freezes (in the shaded mode) and I have to exit through ctrl, alt, del.Secondly the laptop seems to be taking alot longer to boot up than before the forced shutdown.I have ran full virus scans, and it says everything is fine.No doubt this has happened to someone and you could help me!Thanks alotMatt

Answer:Compaq Laptop - Made forced shutdown with programmes running, running badly.

Let's start with the hd: To check the hard drive right-click on a command prompt icon and open as administrator. In the command prompt window type:chkdsk /r  (then press ENTER). You'll be told the disk is in use and asked if you want to run checkdisk on the next boot. Say yes, exit the command prompt window, and reboot.

My problem is the following: after a boot up, my laptop can find itself in two states, seemingly at random.
- runs fine: the laptop runs as it always did, no slowdown or anything.
- runs slowly: as the name implies, every program runs slowly, from Firefox to video games (offline, so it's not just an internet connection issue).
As far as I can tell, which state the computer will settle in is set at boot up or wake up from hibernation mode. I've never seen my laptop go from "runs fine" to "runs slowly" while I was using it, even after running all day long. Same way, if it's in the "runs slowly" state it's noticeable as soon as I launch any program just after boot up, and it doesn't get better or worse after using it all day .
Another symptom I noticed recently is that as soon as I launch a game while in the "runs fine" state, I can hear both the CPU fan (shortly) and GPU fan (continuously) kick up a few gears, which I take to mean both CPU and GPU are put to use. This has always been the laptop's behaviour, even before this problem appeared. However, when playing a game while in the "runs slowly" state, the CPU fan will remain quiet and the GPU fan will only go a bit faster from time to time before returning to quiet speed. It seems as if the whole computer gets lazy and don't want to put any effort.
I first took notice of this whole behaviour around the end of March/beginning of April of this year, though in retrospect the "runs slowly" state may have shown up on... Read more

Hi! I have a Compaq laptop, and lately it has been getting hot pretty quickly. I noticed the fan seems to be constantly on, and while I could be wrong, I don't think it has always been constantly running until fairly recently. I feel like I would have noticed. lol

Anyway, my laptop is about 2 1/2 years old, Windows Vista, and I use vista manager. I have AVG, AdAware and Spybot for security. I have Photoshop cs5 and Adobe lightroom, but the problem was there before I had these. I have completely reset my computer to factory settings, and the problem is still there.

I have a lot of running processes, but I've checked them on Vista manager and on pcpitstop, and only have removed the ones that I know for sure are not important.

Any ideas of what I can do? My computer lags as it heats up, and I don't want it to die! I use it for school and work, and my photography work.

If anyone wants to take a gander at my running processes, just let me know. I would be more than happy to take advice from those more knowledgable than I.

Buying a new laptop is NOT an option, by the way. I've treated this one very well, and I really see no reason why I couldn't fix it and extend it's life. Thank you in advance!

Win 8 seems to have made it more difficult not easier! I can't make heads or tails out of the instructions to create a network that will allow access to files back and forth between my Win 8 Desktop and my XP driven LapTop. Would you direct me to a simple step by step process describing how to do what I am trying to accomplish?

Answer:How to share files on Desktop running Win 8 from Laptop running XP

Short description for Windows 7 and 8 file and printer sharing:

Go into the Network and Sharing Center from the Control Panel or from the Network icon in the Notification Area. Your network must be designated 'Private' (or 'Home' or 'Work'). Click on Change advanced sharing settings. In the Private or Home or Work section you can configure File and printer sharing, Public folder sharing, and Password protected sharing.

You may want to change the Workgroup name. To check it or change it right click on "Computer" and select "Properties."

You must uninstall or properly configure any non-windows firewall (security suite).

A wizard way to enable file and printer sharing on XP:

Run the Network Setup wizard (found in Control Panel of XP). Tell it each of your computers connects to the internet via "residential gateway" and that you want to enable file and printer sharing. Create a disk at the end only if you have a PC with Windows ME or Windows older than ME.

Windows XP firewall (if SP2 or SP3) will be properly configured by the wizard (but make sure it is not set to “No Exceptions&#8221. You must uninstall or properly configure any 3rd party firewalls on each machine. Unique computer names and same workgroup, of course.

Is there a setting on my laptop stopping it joining the workgroup. Because it is not in the workgroup, i guess that is why my home pc cannot detect it.

When i search for computers nothing is detected, yet when i search for "laptop" it finds it in my workgroup. Yet no symbol is showing.

I want the connection purely for file transfer.

Static IP address are ok, for hom pc and for laptop.

Answer:Networking home pc running XP pro with laptop running Win 2000

This has to be the most asked question,

First get identical accounts on the XP and 2k, such as user with a password of user.
Turn off simple file sharing on the XP machine, its Explorer \Tools \Folder Options \View drag the bar to the bottom and untick simple file sharing.

Ensure both machines are in the same workgroup, this is found in XP by right clicking my computer on the desktop and choosing properties then choose computer name then click change, by default XP Pro and 2K use "Workgroup" but XP Home uses MSHOME for some strange reason, to change the work group in 2K right click my computer choose properties, choose network Identification, properties.

Then share the folders you want access to by opening explorer and right click the folder and choose sharing, follow the tabs

reboot the PC's and that should do you.

I always check by doing this

start run "\\machinename\c$
this attempts to connect to the admin string of the PC, this share is always present and means you dont have to worry about sharing individual folders.

If this works congratulate yourself for being clever and have a large Rum and coke and a Cigar.

If not post back and someone cleverer than me will help..

I've got an odd problem here. On my Compaq Presario CQ60-615DX, it runs fine as long as it's plugged in. Once I unplug it and run it on the battery, once it gets down to about 87-88% or so, the screen just goes black, but doesn't shutdown and I'm unable to do anything except remove the battery and restart. My first thought was a battery problem, but the fact that it keeps running even though the screen is black makes me wonder if that's the case or not. Anyone else experience this or any ideas to help?

Answer:when running on battery, screen goes black,but laptop is still running

You laptop is due to the power plan settings, refer to point 1.
Normally, the laptop can return to display mode upon moving the cursor &or keyboard being press.

1. Go to Control Panel, select Hardware & Sound; select Power Options.
Select the Power plan with button marked, and Change Plan settings to view on the options.

2. If you are using main power, best is to remove &or unplugged the battery.
If the battery is always plugged in, while using main power, this cause the battery to failed in the long run.
Unless you need to charge battery, then plug in the main power.
If battery is almost 100% then remove it if you use main power.
I had one laptop (from my bro) who always battery was plugged in and also use main power.
The battery was now useless, cannot hold charge.

No DMP files included in upload please try this method
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:

I purchased a set of classic dvds from amazon and found that they would not run on my laptop. A message came up that it was the wrong zone and gave the opportunity to change the zone. Highlighted was FREE. The two other were western europe with another area and the third was I believe the USA.The DVD runs ok on a TV with DVD combined. Can anyone tell me should I change the area on my laptop from FREE to Western Europe without producing other problems?

Hi everyone,

After restarting the computer following a malwarebytes scan, I could not get into window, nor safe mode and system restore by pressing F8 at start up. What I only had after running a little while is BSOD. Btw, I ran diagnostic test a few times. All passed.

After this happened and I did some searching online, I decided to run a windows xp repair by using the original OEM window xp installation CD (sp2) when the system inside the computer is sp3 after I updated it long ago.

I followed the processes suggested by the following webpage.

It was all fine until Part 4 in that webpage. A BSOD popped out after the windows symbol in Part 3.
And I noticed some new sentences at the bottom of the BSOD which are like ?physical memory dump?.

Hopefully, solutions for all of this would be recommended by someone. I don?t even really dare to switch the computer back on now!

Sorry if I have posted in the wrong section of the forum. If I have done it, please move this post to the right section. Thank you in advance.

Answer:BSOD after restarting following a malwarebytes scan and BSOD after running windows xp repair

System manufacturer and model?

Generally...OEM disks do not allow for a "repair install", only a reversion to factory defaults which the system had when purchased.

All documentation (which I've seen) referring to a repair install of XP...assume that the user has a copy of MS Genuine Windows, not disks provided by an OEM.

Answer:BSOD Running SWTOR Launcher, followed BSOD Posting instructions

We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:

There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website)
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
- Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard!
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.-
Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.
It's my opinion that SSD's aren't reliable enough (with current hardware... Read more

Hello guys, I have a bit of a long story to tell you which i'm finding is very weird.
I bought a new PC around 8 months ago. Before 1 month or less, I started getting this issue where my PC (while playing games) would suddenly turn black and be unresponsive, ALTHOUGH I can still hear everything in the background (such as people talking on mics and videos..etc).
So I decided to rollback the graphics driver hoping it would be the issue, it stayed for a couple of days perfectly then started getting the issue again.
I downloaded a program called OCCT and ran a test which gave me an error 6 seconds in saying "CPU #3 (sometimes changes number) over maximum value". Searching online again says it means I need a better cooler ((which is still weird)).
So I decided to clean the laptop using air cans (the fans) and opening it from behind to brush off dust. I barely found any dust / or dust coming out of fans. I turned the laptop on after and still got black screen.
For the last test, I hooked an HDMI to my TV using the laptop and didn't encounter a black screen (for around 2-3 hours), so I decided to unhook the HDMI cable and as soon as I do that, my laptop get's a black screen!! (keep in mind I was duplicating the laptop screen to TV so both TV and laptop had picture).
I find this problem very weird and have booked it for a repair (unfortunately lost the warranty too). So I decided to post this to see if anyone might have a clue on what the actual problem could be. I'm clueless. ... Read more

Hello Seven Forums community, this is my first post here!

So I made this PC, and haven't gotten any problems or BSOD (just one with a faulty GPU, fixed that already)
Yesterday, I turned on the PC and noticed it went from my desktop to black then a BSOD appeared, and I got freaked out, heh.

I went into Safe Mode with Networks and searched for some help (had no BSOD on Safe Mode) and read it MIGHT have something to do with overclocking. (I have my processor to 4.2GHz), so I defaulted the frequency and voltage but still got the BSOD.

Later that day it booted up no problem (don't know why). Even played some games and no BSOD at all! But today I booted up and same story, getting the BSOD.

I'm uploading the files since I've ran out of ideas.
Could be caused by hal.ddl or ntoskrnl.exe? I'm not really sure about it.

Download The free AVG antivirus programme, and the free Zonealarm firewall from HERE and HERE

Disconnect from the internet, and uninstall your Symantec/Norton security product from add remove programmes in your control panel. Please note. You may have to uninstall it in several pieces from add remove programmes.

Once it`s completely uninstalled reboot your computer. Install the zonealarm programme, followed by the AVG programme, and reboot your computer.

Reconnect to the internet, and download the latest updates for AVG.

See how your system runs, and please let us know.

Basically my problem is that whenever I try and switch to SLI mode my computer either crashes, BSOD's, or just goes into this weird semi-sleep mode that it won't come out of. Each of the cards work fine by themselves, regardless of which PCI slot is used, so it doesn't seem to be hardware related (unless its a problem with the SLI bridge). Also, the blue screens I've gotten have said something about a registry error. The only thing I can think of is that when i used driver sweeper i accidentally ticked Nvidia - Chipset, which I've never done before. Anyways, here is my info/attached files:
Windows Vista ultimate, x86
Was the original OS installed on this system and is OEM
Computer is about 5 years old and haven't reinstalled OS since then
CPU: QX6700 @ 2.66Ghz
GPU: 2x8800GTX in SLI
MOBO: Not sure, its a dell computer. Has the nForce 680i SLI chipset on it though...
PSU: Again, not sure, will try and find out. 1000W though
Model is the XPS 720

Sorry for the semi-vague system info. Will update if I find out specifics

Answer:BSOD when running in SLI

Hello BiggaWhat,

Without taking a look at the dumps, the mention of using Driver Sweeper is what likely caused the issue. If uninstalling your video card drivers and reinstalling the latest version doesn't fix it, or if you're on the latest version and you've tried rolling back to a previous, I would recommend performing a system restore to before you use Driver Sweeper.

After that, uninstall the drivers regularly rather than using Driver Sweeper.

Hi all,

I've been getting some nasty BSOD lately. I've gotten them randomly for months every week or so, but now I can't go a few hours without it crashing.

Reinstalled OS yetserday hoping to fix these BSOD
Reinstalled all my drivers fresh off the ASUS website for my laptop
Updated the OS with all current patches

Hi, as mentioned in the title im getting seemingly random black-screen reboots with very occasional BSOD's when running the above games( haven't tried others, could just be GPU heavy titles). The dreaded "Power Supply Surges detected during the previous power on. ASUS Anti-Surge was triggered to protect system from unstable power supply unit! " seems to suggest the problem lies with a faulty power supply, as my previous machine using the same component was prone to these type of restarts, however i would like to tap into this well of knowledge to reassure myself before spending money.

Sometimes drivers remain and do not get completely uninstalled.

Download Driver Sweeper to the desired location.
Extract the files from the zip.
Uninstall the driver Program & Features - Control Panel.

I've been trying to fix this for the past few days with no results. I keep getting BSOD errors(0x00000050) after running for a while. I can run a browser game for 4 hours and have no problems but then if I let it sit idle, or just run a virus scan or something without much interaction it will crash.

For instants I ran a scan the other night and it crashed, I also ran a scan today and made sure to click around every few minutes but it still crashed. I know its not that scanner either because this has happened way before I installed it.

I believe 0x00000050 is the code for hardware failure? I've run the Vista Memory Check and it came back clean. I also used the Dell Diagnostics and it all came back good.

Hey all, thanks for any help
Dell Inspiron 8500 Laptop XP Home SP2 512Mb Ram
My computer has lately started crashing all the time, especially in Windows explorer. Also when I was trying to install new drivers downloaded from Dell.
It crashed during two attempts to run DDS, so there is no log pasted here (no log generated) generating a kernel mode exception not handled stop message.
AVG scan and Hijack this also cause the computer to crash, usually with the page fault in non-paged area stop message.
The funny thing is that in safe mode these programs don't cause crashes.........(didn't try DDS in safe mode yet)
I was going through the services list and noticed services for the following all located in and running from the temp file: OGI.exe, NQUGTI.exe, ETMFW.exe, CZD.exe, & ROUHREN.exe.......The temp file is now clean, but I wonder what these would be?

Something I found out tonight (just now!) through Dell Technical Support (here from my PC, as my notebook crashed & burned) was a cool way to run some great diagnostic tests was to do the following:

Even with seemingly unworkable problems like: DVD stuck in drive (non "tray" system, one like a car CD player, BCD\Boot\ error with 0xc000000f code,) you can:

Hit power (on) + Fn key and hold until you hear an unusual (non "Beep" beep. It's an irregular system driver noise.

Let all tests cycle and, at the end, answer "no" to the final test.

Resetting BIOS to factory defaults after the fact will allow you to, in most cases, assuming you're current on revisions (in my case, A11 with a Studio 1558 with Windows 7 x64 Home Premium + Vista x64 Ultimate,) disable all unnecessary hardware/options when it comes to this situation (WLAN, etc.)

SATA to IDE is important to set.

Configuring USB as a bootable device (will differ on almost every BIOS brand, Phoenix, AMI, Award, etc.,) is pertinent; download (if you've got the same error as me,) SourceForge's UNetbootin.

I've tried lots of utilities just to see what's out there.

That particular one is the simplest and fastest way to make a BOOTABLE ISO image out of a Windows DVD (with at least a 4+ GB flash drive!)

...good FYI to throw in there.

I hope this benefits someone out there in the BSOD land.

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x64
- the original installed OS on the system? Windows 7 Ultimate x64
- an OEM or full retail version? Retail

- What is the age of system (hardware)? ~1 year
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) ~1 year, I installed it when I got the laptop.

Also, one of my USB ports is not working, it has been like that for a while. The sound jack is also broken i fell on the headphone cord. The sound still works, just have to move it a bit. I'm about to send it in to get the hardware repaired and was hoping I could get an answer here on the BSOD before hand. The laptop is a Sager W860CU. Thanks!

I'm currently scanning with Avast.

I took a picture of the BSOD with my phone. Hopefully you can see all the characters.

Hi everyone,
I recently got a laptop a few months ago, and now I receive BSOD all of a sudden. I haven't really had enough time to try to fix it because of my schooling. But with a couple of my classes ending, I have some time on my hands.
Here's what I've done:
1. Scanned the computer with latest version of microsoft security essentials
2. Updated Windows7 with latest patches and updates.
3. I have updated my realtek drivers, and GPU drivers.
4. I have used elevated command prompt to use ChkDsk \R
5. I have also used elevated command prompt Scannow
6. I made it so that windows creates kernel dump files whenever it crashes, and to restart. But I'm not getting anything recent, the last dump file was created a few months ago. Though I've gotten a whole lot of BSOD's and crashes since then.
I looked in the Event viewer and I have had multiple critical errors all indicating Kernel-Power.
Here's what it says in XML:

- <Event xmlns="">

hello everyone

I'm new to forums and i hope i can find someone to help me with this issue
Today i bought a new cam and i used the CD the came with it and installed the drivers and everything looked fine . i plugged the camera usb cable and went to launch the camera application and as soon as i clicked on it twice i found my self looking at the dreaded BSOD with this message :

IRQL Not Less or Equal


0x0000000A (0x00000000,0x0000001C,0x804E1BF8

then i went online and downloaded the most recent driver package for the camera but the problem stayed ..

I'm not sure what might be the reason but as i was installing the drivers for the first time i noticed that after the main installation i was asked to find the drivers with that windows thing i don't know the name so i chose INSTALL DRIVERS AUTOMATICALLY !!! i had no other choice since the camera drivers that could be downloaded come as an EXE file and i have no idea if i can extract the driver archive of an EXE file

the camera is made in china and got a stupid generic name as USB2.0 PC CAMERA but the drivers on cd are for Sn9c 201/202 ? i was thinking that this drivers could be of another cam but it cant be since windows recognise it as Sn9c 201 whenever i plug the usb cable a and to let you know a week ago or so i had some virus problem so i made a repair install for windows . and oh yeah i used Sfc /scannow today and everything looked good.

can you guys help me ?

Hello eightforums!

I am having an issue with a Dell Venu 11 Pro tablet and I have battled with this for a few days now. I am trying to get sysprep to work, and I finally got it to successfully run yesterday after much battling with it. Many Appex application uninstalls and registry edits later, I got it to successfully run.

Though, after it runs, next restart the tablet will BSOD with a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE error. After installing the Windows Debugger, I got far enough to figure out that it is telling me that it is some driver issue with usbccgp.sys, but after reading some other threads here, I understand that this is not the true driver that is the issue, but what driver is reporting to the OS. However, I lack the knowledge of how to actually figure out what actual underlining driver is throwing the issue.

Any help you could provide me would be greatly appreciated, TYIA!

I have attached the dmp file below.

EDIT: I went and pulled 4 more dump files off the tablet, they are older tho

EDIT 2: dmp file with the power cord disconnected (still same bug code DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE)

Answer:BSOD after running Sysprep

Hi addyftw,

Welcome to the 8forums.

The usbccgp.sys driver is a driver from windows, this driver is for the connections (usb ports), this could mean 1 of the ports is giving problems.
This could also mean that there is another 3rd party driver causing the issue, usually when a windows driver is blamed a 3rd party driver is actually causing the problem.

Hi mrmorj and welcome to the forum. I looked at your six most recent dumps. All are Driver Verifier enabled dumps. Three of those dumps directly blame AVG and two blame:

emBDA64.sys Wed Apr 22 03:26:57 2009 - USB 28xx OEM Filter (TV Card) ATI chipset. Driver.

1. for the time being, turn off Driver Verifier. Here are the instructions: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable. We may want to turn it back on again later.

2. Uninstall AVG using this removal tool: Tool (64 bit). Uninstall AVG Identity protection using this removal tool: Tool. Install Microsoft Security Essentials in it place while you are troubleshooting.

3. Uninstall what ever virtual CD program you are running such as Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120%, possibly Saitek(?), etc. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads. Select uninstall; do NOT select reinstall.

Here is a free alternative CD virtualization program that does not use the sptd.sys driver.

I just bought a brand new HP laptop on Thursday, by the time I got it home it was already kinda late so I didn't play with it much - but I did notice at one point the laptop had restarted itself while I was out of the room. I didn't think much of it until friday when it crashed 6 times between 2 -9:30pm. I finally gave up and I'm returning it to Best Buy today for an exchange, but just so I can avoid this with my next one any debugging or cause of the issue advice would be appreciated.

programs installed after purchase: world of warcraft, core temp ..... nothing else was installed that didn't come with it. The crashes occurred kinda variously, sometimes while playing wow other times while doing nothing or running norton antivirus. Also noted that the cpu temp was around 77c each time it crashed.

I ran windows debug on all of them myself and these are what it said the probable causes were:

11/5/09 7:30pm Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe
11/6/09 2:15pm Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe
11/6/09 2:21pm Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe
11/6/09 3:21pm Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe
11/6/09 8:15pm Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe
11/6/09 9:19pm Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe
11/6/09 9:33pm Probably caused by : amdppm.sys

unfortunately I have no clue what any of that means so any advice would be appreciated.

dump files attached.

Answer:BSOD and running hard

Update your chipset drivers and bios for your motherboard.

This is causing your bsod - "amdppm.sys" - it's the processor driver.

Get that updated and issue should resolve. The current version is probably heating the laptop too much.

Ok. I figured that I must have gotten malware from web surfing the other night. I shut the laptop down, went to bed. When I got up the next morning, I booted the laptop up and everything loaded fine. I noticed a pop up bar on Chrome saying something about Nortons wasn't able to load. I looked down in my system tray and the Nortons logo was gone, it was just an empty space. I knew something had happened, so I closed out Chrome, opened FF (which I have all scripts blocked using NoScript), got onto MalwareBytes and downloaded the program. I opened the program and clicked to update it. The program would not let me download the lastest updates for it, so I ran it cold and it found nothing. I kind of knew that it wouldn't find anything, so I went to the Dr. Web site and got the Live scanner for USB.
Booted to the USB and let Dr. Web run for over 4 hours. It found a few things, but one infected file. In the list of files it had a ton that it could not read, but it didn't have anything (color coated) to separate the infected file from the non infected. I just clicked "cure" and everything seemed to be fine. Since some of the files were registry files, I ran the RegistryCure program from the live USB and it seemed fine.
I shutdown the system and rebooted to Windows to see if I could get Nortons up again. When the system was booting it looked fine. It ran the Vista startup, but right before for it pops up the Vista logo and Windows theme (right before the logon screen) I ... Read more

I have a PC that was custom built by a contact who makes his own.
It worked fine for about 1 month or so and then started getting BSOD constantly.

I was previously running VISTA but have since reformatted the C: and installed Windows 7. This has had no luck in fixing the machine. The contact took the machine back and said that they were able to run it on and off for 10 days with no BSOD. I don't understand that because I am getting them all the time. Other PCs I run at home have no problem.

As at last night I re-installed Windows 7 for what seems like the millionth time. Before doing the re-install I removed my Wireless G card and cut everything down to the bare minimum. I installed the lastest drivers for my motherboard and graphics card. With nothing running last night it BSOD. I have subsequently re-inserted the Wireless G card and am still getting BSOD.

The BSOD mention the ntkrnlpa.exe file which is an underlying Windows so I am not sure what to do about fixing it.

I have also ran the memtest+68 for about 24 hours and got no errors recorded.

I have attached my dump information, if you could please point me in the right direction of where to look. At the moment I am tempted to write off the whole machine.

Answer:Windows 7 and BSOD with nothing running

The difference between a shop and you is that the shop doesn't run the system the same way that you do. So it's something that you're doing that causing it.

The info that you provided shows issues with your RaLink wireless adapter. Please be sure that you are using the correct drivers for it.

The dump files show that Driver Verifier is running.
Did you start it? If so, what settings did you use?
The Verifier dump files aren't providing the information that we need from them.

This is most likely caused by a user mode service issues improper commands to kernel mode processes - but without the proper Driver Verifier settings we can't figure it out.

for the last 4 days or so i have been getting random blue screens. it was before i had updated anything except for windows updates. originally i had windows XP but due not not being able to make it past the boot screen at all, not even in safe mode i wiped the drive and went with a fresh install of vista 32 bit. in vista Ive at least consistently been able to make it to the desktop on every boot and not crash until i start running any form of games. i have vista updated with every driver and service pack that is available and ran many ram tests over the 4 sticks that i have. 10 passes on each stick as well as running memtest 86+ overnight. all returning with no errors. i have tried replacing the video card thinking it was the RAM on the card that fried, but alas no luck there either. nothing in this system is overclocked or has ever been overclocked. currently have AVG installed as well. im currently at the end of my rope attempting to get this system running for the last 4-5 days.

Answer:BSOD upon running games

17 memory dumps over 3 days (03 to 05 Jun 2010)
7 different STOP errors with 7 different causes blamed.
You've also reinstalled Windows - so this is (IMO) a hardware issue.

I'd suspect your video card, but you've already changed that out.

So, let's start with the standard diagnostics, but with some caveats to make sure we get the results that we need.

First, please run a hard drive diagnostic. NTFS.sys is present in a couple of the memory dumps - and it's a driver that affects the file system on your hard drive. Also, a failing hard drive can cause all sorts of strange symptoms on a system. So, please follow the instructions here: (read the details at the link)

Next, please run the Furmark video stress test. I'm not expecting anything from it - but would like to rule out the possibility of a problem with the video card slot on the motherboard causing issues. Here's the instructions and link:


Try this free video stress test:
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).
- Click "Quit" to exit

Next, please try Prime 95 - using the Small FFT's test (si... Read more

All but one of the dumps blames your windows network driver.

One of the crashes was a 0x124 WHEA hardware error. It only happened once so we will put it on the to-do list. We need to correct this other bug first.

Ok. So instead of making a new thread that has to do with the same thing, I'll just post it here. I am too having trouble with bsod while playing tera. I reinstalled windows 7 yesterday ( windows 7 x86 sp1 ) and problems started to show up. First my graphic driver went nuts. It crashed during the game. I found some old ones and it went ok. Then bsod appeared. I ran driver verifier ( someone posted a guide ). maybe this whole mess is about sp1, because i had no problem at all when i DIDN'T have sp1 installed. Maybe that's the problem. So anyway, here's a .zip file with 4 dumps.

Hello everyone,

I bought a computer on November 8th 2015, one month after upgrading to windows 10 i started having random BSOD, most of the times while watching things online (youtube or movie websites) or while playing any games (either offline or online games) . I first sent the computer to asus support and it came back a month after, they said everything was fine. As soon as I'm back to using it, it starts crashing again.
I've done all of the things that I can do, according to what I've read on several forums.
1.- I updated all my drivers (from the manufacturer websites)
2.-I clean installed windows 10.
3.- I ran chkdsk
4.-I ran memtest86
5.-I ran scannnow
6.-I defragged
7.-I downloaded all windows updates.
8.-I went back to windows 8.1
9.-I went back to windows 10 again.
10.- I ran antivirus
11.- I ran malewarebytes
12.- Tried registry cleaning.
13.-BIOS is on date.

Now updating my drivers seems to make it worst, if they are not updated it, i only get bsod while doing what i mentioned above, if i update the drivers, then the computer crashes non stop, whatever I'm doing, even by just cliking on the desktop.
Downloading windows 10 updates makes it worst as well, crashes non stop.
Going back to windows 8.1 was the worst idea by far, I had to download windows from another computer because windows 8 wouldnt even let me open the browser.
I've avoided downloading anything else, than the necessary, right now i only have one browser, OPERA, because chrome and firefox crash ... Read more

Question: BSOD running Kodi


My HTPC has sufferd from BSOD for some time now, specifically when running Kodi v15.0.
I was (without doing any form of deeper analysis) suspected my memory modules to be the culprits since I have experienced that to be the case earlier (another computer). Switched out the old modules with a single 8gb stick, no xmp. This did not solve the issue.
As far as hardware temperatures go, the CPU and the GPU have stable and relatively low readings.

Hello -I had a rootkit virus affecting my ATAPI.SYS today. Downloaded and ran COMBOFIX once, but as I was not able to connect to the internet, I couldn't install Windows Recovery. I let ComboFix do its thing, reboot, and create a log file. So far so good.Ran ComboFix again, as I was now connected to the internet. It installed Windows Recovery no problem. ComboFix then began going through its check phases. At one point my screen froze entirely. I let it sit there for about 30 minutes, but nothing happened. I restarted the machine, and got a BSOD.

I was following the XP System Cleaning Steps, and running MGTools, when my laptop crashed. I am using my desktop right now.

The laptop will not log on. I have tried recovery console, boot in safe mode, last known good configuration and it will not get past this error. I have attached a photo of the fail screen.

Answer:BSOD running MG Tools

Your image is upside down.

Something that happened prior to running MGtools caused this. Or just a untimely crash of Windows in the middle of MGtools running. MGtools is basically an information collector and any minor changes being made to your system are insignificant and would not cause this. The crash of Windows may have just occurred at a point that corrupted your registry.

What problems were you having that prompted you to run the cleaning procedure to begin with? Also, do you remember whether any of the scans prior to MGtools found and removed anything?

You will have to try running the below procedure to try and restore an uncorrupted copy of the registry hives.;en-us;307545&sd=tech

Hi BSODesktop,

Welcome to the 10forums.

The crash is a 0x12B(FAULTY_HARDWARE_CORRUPTED_PAGE) which is usually caused by memory.
Please test your memory using MemTest86+

This is the only dump in the zip file, there are however more crashes.
If you are using a program like Ccleaner please stop using it while troubleshooting.
This because programs like Ccleaner remove dump files that are needed to troubleshoot.
Or configure Ccleaner to not remove dump files:

Hey all, having a weird issue. I was playing some pc games and suddenly BSOD, something about a Kernel security check failure. I had to then use the repair tool to even boot back up and now everything is running super slow, sorry don't have much more info than that. As I'm typing this I'm trying some of the basic stuff that takes some time (defrag, virus scan etc) but just wanted to get the ball rolling.
One other thing is that afaik that type of BSOD is to do with driver comparability or something like that. i haven't updated any drivers in the past week or two though.

i just bought this dell inspiron N5110 two months ago. Three weeks after i bought it, i always get a blue screen usually every two to three days. I took it back to the dell store where i bought it to complain, all they did was a factory reset. Even after the reset, i still get the blue screen regularly.

Although, the system came with a 6Gig RAM(4Gig and 2Gig) i removed one of them at a time to test if either one of them is bad, and what i get in both cases is still a blue screen. i also ran a system test using the dell support centre software that came with the system and all system components tested passed the test 100%.

I also used the windows memory diagnostic tool and no errors were found. I finally tried whoCrashed.exe. it

These were blamed on netio.sys and that usually means your malware app. In your case Symantec is a known cause of BSOD.

I'm creating this topic to request the evaluation of crash dump.

It usually happens after 15 or 30 minutes playing without problem and not in all games

Note: My computer is new, about 1 month.

I am Brazilian and I used google translator to translate some of the files generated by sf diagnostics. Were partially translated (I kept the original files created in my native language Portuguese Brazil too.) Sorry if this becomes difficult that can help me.

Thank you for your help.

Answer:BSOD when running games

Only 6 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 70 to 90 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Don't worry about the specific number, it's just important that you have checked and installed any updates that were available (and didn't experience any errors).

These drivers aren't installed, please install them:

Porta serial PCI PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8C3D&SUBSYS_1C3A1458&REV_04\3&11583659&0&B3 Os drivers para este dispositivo n?o est?o instalados.
Controlador de comunica??o PCI simples PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8C3A&SUBSYS_1C3A1458&REV_04\3&11583659&0&B0 Os drivers para este dispositivo n?o est?o instalados.
N?o dispon?vel USB\VID_093A&PID_2620&MI_00\6&163532E1&0&0000 Os drivers para este dispositivo n?o est?o instalados.

The first 2 appear to be a part of the chipset drivers for your system. Please install the latest, Win8.1 compatible version.
The last item is a USB device, most likely a video camera. Either install the latest, Win8.1 compatible drivers, or uninstall it and physically remove the device from your system.

These devices are disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?:
