High CPU & Ram usage - occasional BSOD

Question: High CPU & Ram usage - occasional BSOD

I upgraded to Windows 10 near the beginning, no big issues.

Problem started about a week back. I came home to a BSOD. The computer also hangs and restarts more often now.

Ram usage is extremely high. I have 16GBs but usually only 50% is used, even with 40+ chrome tab and a running game. The ram doesn't seem to clear too - I'd close most running programs and ram usage will still be high. A restart would be required.

Now, even with nothing on, ram usage is almost maxed. As you can see in the attachment, it's windows services that are causing the cpu/ram spikes. Even task manager is using 10% cpu. since when did task manager use 10% cpu.

I've googled and some thought it was an nvidia drive issue. I've installed older drivers but it's still a problem.

Help?

Thanks

Preferred Solution: High CPU & Ram usage - occasional BSOD

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I have recently noticed a bit of a performance issue on my HP laptop running Windows 10 Home.

What happens is, if I am not doing anything on the laptop, but am not putting it to sleep (i.e. idling), it stays at a low CPU usage. However, after a while (usually about a minute?), the CPU usage rockets up, and also affects my CPU temperatures (goes up from ~35'C to ~50'C).

The processes that are the culprit, as defined by the detailed tab of Task manager, are either "svchost.exe" or "System" - the latter is described as "NT Kernel and System" and is linked to ntoskrnl.exe.

Any way of controlling this would be greatly appreciated.

Note: the laptop came preinstalled with Windows 10 and doesn't have many programs installed.

I need help in understanding one simple thing that I find difficult to realise of my CPU.
You can see my specs, I filled all of them in while registering. My BIOS is fully up-to-date, and, except the battery which does not charge, this laptop works fine.
I am not a wealthy-enough person to buy "spare parts" for my laptop to test it.
The problem I am encountering features my CPU, an Intel Core i7 3537U which is designed to run at 2GHz, as the benchmarks state.
Some time ago I noticed how the "System Information" windows in the Control Panel states the following on the "Processor" line "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3537U CPU @ 2.00GHz 2.50GHz" and I always asked myself why does it have 2 clock speeds.
Today, having some spare times, I wanted to go in depth, and downloaded CPU-Z and discovered that the clock speed fluctuates between 2893.10 MHz and 3092.63 MHz, which is much over than both 2 and 2.5GHz. Is this normal? I never practiced overclocking. BSODs are rare (1/month) and, when they happen, they are always of code 0x00000124 (hal.dll is the main problem, then ntoskrn.exe is also considered problematic, BlueScreenView highlights them both red). I know it is a hardware issue but I don't know what is it related to, maybe to this?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Hello everyone, I've been having a very weird problem recently, in which I BELIEVE is involving high physical memory usage. Sometimes I will be doing things such as playing a game, or watching a stream, and my computer will run fine for a little while. But at random times, my computer will majorly slow down and sometimes even crash. If it doesn't crash, sometimes it will get so slow to the point where I have to hold down the power button and manually shut it down. Every time my computer slows down I notice it is using a TON of physical memory. It's actually happening right now. My computer is going very slow and it's using 6.22 GB memory out of 8. There are no big programs running right now, so I don't understand why it's being slow. I hope someone is able to help. Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Update: I just tried to open chrome, and the computer froze completely. It would not unfreeze. After leaving it frozen for a minute or two, the screen went black. This is becoming very frustrating.

Howdy, as the title says I've been getting blue screens during peak loading and off peak loading of both CPU and GPU usage. Temperature levels are reading normal (~34C for CPU/MOBO and ~45C for GPU during peak). Fresh install of Windows was done not long ago due to the increasing events of BSOD after upgrading graphics card and RAM. Graphics card was replaced due to a faulty fan which was thought to be the initial culprit, however since it was increasing in frequency. It became to the point of once every 2 hours so Windows 7 fresh install was done.

Since installation it has been running smoothly until tonight, where it has BSOD twice within 5 hours with similar or same messages as previously recorded. First time posting here so please let me know if I have missed a step out.

Have read previous posts and followed steps as seen so will be unable to determine if working as intended or errors still occurring. However as a safety I am attempting to give all information I can in regard to the issue. If I missed something I do apologise.

Answer:BSOD During both high and low usage periods

Extra things I failed to note and I apologise for not doing so initially:
MSI Afterburner Software and AMD Catalyst Control software is not installed. The driver however is the AMD 14-4 build.
All hard drives are Seagate Barracudas and SATA of varying sizes (no SSD).
Peak usage gaming is 4 EVE accounts on Medium/High settings and anti-aliasing off while playing.
Most previous BSODs occurred whilst web browsing or data logging for stellar tracking.
There have been increased instances of a "checkerboard effect" on limited parts of the screen. It mostly occurs on software running on my second monitor (Samsung S27C570H).

First of all, I'm new here so hello everyone!

For the last approx. 2 months I've been experiencing quite annoying problems with my PC. I'm currently working on my diploma project in 3ds Max 2008, trying to finish it ASAP (it must be ready before August 09). Everything works quite fine until I want to render the scene.

There are just totally random moments during rendering process when I get blue screen of death, my system notifies me of the process of dumping physical memory and then everything restarts. And then it takes forever to go past that startup screen - detecting HDs and other hardware works abnormally slow. After that, system starts up normally. There are no logs of that event in Event Viewer (not sure if that's its name in EN, I'm using PL version of Vista).

During renders there's almost always 100% CPU usage (on each core -it shows 8 of them in the task manager).

Few months ago I did memtest but couldn't find any problem there. I must notice here, that I am no expert in hardware and my desktop is still on warranty (have warranty seals). It may be also important that guys who assembled my PC must had screwed something up, as I've been having BSOD almost seconds past every windows startup - until I fixed memory voltage in BIOS (voltage or multiplier - can't remember now what it was exactly).

I'll be really thankful for any help, as I can't finish my diploma when having such problems.

Recently I have started getting the BSOD message "Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error", and on top of this my CPU usage has been extremely high. My cpu usage was fine until a few days ago, and since then it has risen to 100%. I shutdown my firewall and anti-virus (I use Comodo Firewall and NOD32 AV which have been working great until now) to get it back down to normal (around 10%), but this leaves my computer unprotected. I recently got infected with some adware (which I should be able to get rid of with my virus scan), but the BSOD interupts my attempts to remove. I am thankful for any help I get.

Hi, this is my very first post at this forum

I`m struggling a little bit with Photoshop installed on my PC. When i start and closes CS6 before i start gaming my RAM free goes down very much, but when i don`t start CS before i start gaming, nothing happens.

I play MS Flight Simulator X and are struggling with BSOD ingame if CS6 have been runned one or more times after the startup.

Here are my RAM usage... With no Photoshop... Is this good or bad?

With Photoshop running it goes down to 2500 mb free, and my Flightsim needs max 2 gb. Could 500mb be to little for it to work with?

Answer:Is my RAM usage high? (Struggling with BSOD)

I think your RAM usage is good. According to your screen shot you've got 2717MB cached, 3824MB free, and 6262MB available. Windows 7 is a lot more efficient in allocating RAM compared to XP (and even Vista.)

> These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (probably a driver).
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have raid update its Driver.

Memtest.





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

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

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

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

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

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



RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Driver verifier






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

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (s... Read more

Hi all -

Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, OEM on a Dell desktop purchased new about 4 months ago. Intermittently, I'll get a BSOD, and I can't really see much consistency to it. Sometimes it will be when I'm going some power-intensive (playing Diablo 3, highest settings), but sometimes it will be when I'm on Facebook not doing much of anything. I've done every scan I know of and am comfortable doing - defrags, malwarebytes, etc, and it's still happening. It's a relatively new thing - only started about a month or so ago.

Files are attached - any help you can provide would be phenomenal.

Thanks!

Many of us on the forums actually do not recommend automated optimization tools for Windows 7. Windows 7 does a much better job of handling its own optimization than its predecessors did. We especially do not recommend registry cleaning as an "optimization" step because automated registry cleaning causes more harm to the registry than it actually repairs.

In the future, if you need help optimizing Windows 7, please post a thread in Performance & Maintenance - Windows 7 Forums or follow the tutorial enclosed in that forum to Optimize Windows 7.
Analysis:Crashes are pointing to memory problems or driver conflicts.If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

Hi Guys,

My problem is that when I use the memory to a certain point, BSOD kicks in, usually with the fltmgr.sys stuff, rarely with something different. I found it's related to the RAM by using memtest. When I start to use it, at the really beginning it freezes up throws the BSOD. (The BSOD comes as such: the screen gets fizzy, like the old TV screens, and the sound starts to repeat itself, and in ~2 seconds the BSOD comes.)

I updated all the drivers I could find, also updated BIOS.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64, it was already on this computer when I bought it brand new around 6 month ago. The problem might have been there then, but I just recognized the problem 3-4 months ago.

PS: the lot of failure today came from me testing it and trying to solve it.

Answer:BSOD at high memory usage, fltmgr.sys

Seven of 11 point directly to stflt.sys which is a component in several malware apps including Spyware Termination 20122. You should remove both it and your avast and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials

Avast can be a contributing cause of BSOD'S . Please remove and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST
http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclear5.exe

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows
You should also remove dtsofbus01.sys (daemon tools)

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

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

Hello,

My computer has been acting quite erratically as of late. I'm hoping some of you kind souls would take a few minutes to read my tale and offer any suggestions on what I could try next.

Background
It all started the other day when my computer just went black and restarted. Being an XP user I didn't think _too_ much of it... until it happened again a few minutes later. The next morning it kept happening and happening again. At one point it was in a loop -- the instant it got past the welcome screen, it would show my desktop for a second before it would restart again, got to the desktop and restarted again, ad infinitum. Then I disabled the option to restart XP upon failure (in safe mode of course) and started tracking the STOP/BSOD errors I was getting.

In the course of one day there were at least 3 different BSOD errors that I got, one had to do with stream.sys and a WDM error, then seemingly out of nowhere the error changed to an IRQL error, then a few others I can't recall. Each time I got a BSOD I would immediately google the error on my laptop. The solutions for each error provided on tech sites varied wildly and nobody ever seemed to have an actual working solution, in that lovely way that people ask questions and then don't come back to indicate how the problem was eventually fixed.

By the end of day the BSOD's had mostly stopped but a new problem had set in -- very high CPU usage even though there were no programs open. I&... Read more

Starting a few days ago on my DELL VOSTRO system the memory usage grows continuously (as reported by task manager) up to about 3 GB (it takes about 4,5 hours since reboot until the value is reached) and then I'm forced to restart. I'm only using the computer for web related stuff (browse, mail). When the memory is so high in the list of running processes (if I sort the list by mem usage) in the top I have firefox and thunderbird both with ~200 MB so there is no obvious problem here.
I tried running verifier.exe (Pool tracking all drivers) , but upon reboot (when I start tying the password) I get a BSOD. I've attached SF diagnostic tool output to this thread.

Hi,

We have a new computer which we have been using for a few weeks now primarily to record from many cameras simultaneously and save to disk. Consequently, there's a lot of disk I/O and RAM usage going on.

Everything worked fine until we got a BSOD today. The crash dump says something about ntkrnlmp and svchost being responsible. I'm worried that the high disk I/O (supposed to be at 110MB/sec) and seeking (because we're saving to up to 8 different files simultaneously so the disk has to seek a lot) is causing it. If that's the case I'll change the disk writing program so that it doesn't require that much seeking, but writes everything to an interleaved file.

I'm attaching the dump files as instructed http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ns-452654.html

It's a custom build desktop system by JNCS.com with retail win7 64-bit pro, no original OS, and the computer and OS is only a few weeks old.

It's a "Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.40GHz", "NVIDIA GeForce GT 430", "asus P8Z68 DELUXE", Power supply: unsure since I don't see anything other than a cable going directly from the computer to outlet.

Note that 'high-usage' mostly just means Skyrim right now, because I just got it and haven't done much else with the machine. It doesn't happen every time - it's happened twice. Once, I can ignore, twice not so much. The first time it happened I *did not* have the video card listed, it was on-board graphics (which could reasonably have been the issue). I unfortunately know more Linux than Windows at this point and have no idea how to work with the dump file, but feel free to tech-speak to me all you want.

Thanks a bunch in advance for your help. I've seen you work magic as I passed through in Googling.

I keep getting BSODs while playing video games like Star Wars: the force unleashed, COD: Black Ops, etc... Also, these games and other programs constantly crash or randomly restart my system. I am Somewhat computer savvy, but not nearly enough to know what to do to fix this (other than take it to a PC repair shop, or buy a Mac).

Many thanks for any help.

Answer:BSOD When Running high-video-card-usage programs

Hi skeetpants and Welcome to the Forum!

Your .dmp files indicate many different reasons for your Blue Screens. Start by sorting out your drivers.

McAfee is known to be a cause of BSOD's on some Win 7 systems. Your Mcafee drivers are also outdated (pre Win7). I suggest that you uninstall McAfee using the McAfee Removal Tool until your issue is resolved. Download Microsoft Security Essentials as its replacement. Make sure your Windows firewall is enabled!
Once your BSOD issues are resolved, feel free to try an updated version of McAfee.

Outdated drivers to update:

RTL8192su.sys Wed Nov 11 08:54:27 2009 Realtek Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter

atikmdag.sys Thu May 27 17:44:23 2010
atikmpag.sys Thu May 27 17:25:19 2010 Catalyst Drivers
Many people are having issues with the latest Catalyst, 10.12. See this thread for issues regarding v10.12.

It might be an idea to download and install one of the Previous Catalyst Versions. Download and install Driver Sweeper. Uninstall present Catalyst drivers. Re-boot to safe mode and run Driver Sweeper to clean up. Re-boot to normal mode and install the "new" Catalyst drivers.
Please attach new .dmp files to a new post as and if they happen.

Hello, I have been trying to overcome this issue of 100% disk and CPU usage for quite some time before but no solution has worked. It is especially bad when i start my laptop or when i turn it on after hibernation. I tried using this https://chaladi.me/2013/10/11/how-to-fix-windows-8-100-disk-usage-issue/and i have also resetted my laptop to factory version so now its empty, but it is still facing this issue.  How can I stop this problem? Much thanks!!

Hello people!


Firstly, please note that
There's something wrong with my laptop internal organs because when tilt it, it freezes. If I push back the laptop screen it freezes too (I suspect there's a short near the battery or where the screen attaches to the base. BUT THAT'S ANOTHER STORY because If I treat my laptop with care and love nothing happens, functions correctly. Nothing to worry, CPU Usage is rather normal.

High CPU usage cause
But I once run out of battery, and laptop went to hibernate mode. When I plugged it back and lifted the screen it crashed two times.

The first crash gave me a BSOD code error but didn't gave me a chance to take notes because it crashed/freezed again right away giving me a scary random screen that it looked like my laptop was totally screwed up. Then I switch it off and then tried to start Windows but I failed. I had turned it off again and fortunately I made it to Windows in normal mode, and everything looked normal except that my CPU usage went high as a kite and has been acting up like crazy since then. It tends to stay at 100% even with one or two processes (say Opera browser + Process Explorer) and it keeps bouncing (both user and kernel).

Err...Did I told you about my Botnet(?) thingy problem?

I'm running Win XP, and I was downloading some software over the last few days for popup blockers, and I downloaded Yahoo Blocker, Google Blocker, and then ran AdAware 6 [which I've since removed to get Ad Aware SE].

Anyway, I'm having very high CPU usage, and High Memory Usage in the Windows Task Manager. I keep closing dostask.exe because it keeps using nearly 90-100% of the CPU, and it keeps maxing out my memory which is 1/2 Gig.

When I start the machine, the system runs fine, but then it begins to climb. I close it, and it climbs again, and then repeat.

I also did a search for dostask.exe and found this file: DOSTASK.EXE-25D34F68.pf located in the F:\Windows\Prefetch folder. Any help is appreciated.

Important Note: F:\ is my main drive.

Can anyone tell me what I should do?
 

Answer:High CPU Usage & High Memory Usage From dostask.exe

You need to find out what is starting that dostask.exe and either remove it (if it's not something you use) or change the settings (if it's something you use). Read the stickied thread for more info.

Well in the past 3 months I've been having great difficulites with my computer.

First off I get the occasional lag when my CPU usage goes to 100. For example it could happen at any time such as when i go to click on an Icon it will lag for 5 or 6 seconds then open.

Yes I did reformat and it came back gradually.

In Online games about every other minute or so I get the lag in game and recieve 4-5 frames per second pretty much freezing me for a second or two.

I check in my task manager to see what is taking up all this CPU usage and it basically tells me it is whatever program i am running at the time. Say i am running a game it will say the game is taking up 100% of my CPU or if i am using AIM it was that is using 100%.

Comp specs:
Pent 4 2.4ghz
80gb hd
1024 ddr ram
ti4200 g4

Any help or advice is welcome

p.s. I suck at the internet

Answer:Occasional Lag and CPU usage a one hundred

hello fitzy, thats a cracking rig btw..so your computer slows down at full load is it only happening when you are on-line? are you on dial up or broadband? if you are on dialup any game will lag online except chess or suchlike,even with broadband you will get lag. if you know how to check your ping rate the lower the number the less lag you get i:e ping=100m/s ping=1500m/s
this is the time it takes your computer to go to the game server and back again it's measured in milliseconds.. if you are having cpu problems offline do a couple of system checks. check for virus,
overheating. is the cpu overclocked from bios? if it is set it back to default frequency..overall thats a good computer setup, it may be something simple slowing it down
hope this is some help

I have recently upgraded my hard drive and cloned my old Win 7 partition to that. All seems to be o.k. but occasionally my hard disk starts to work intensively for less than a minute freezing everything.
The hard drive that I have used for the migration of my OS was one that had a few large files on it. I have used easeus partition manager to shrink the partition with these files and made a new partition in front of it for the OS.
I have checked the had drive for errors and bad tracks, and it looks that there are no such problems.
A look at the event viewer shows the application experience and error reporting services starting and stopping all the time.
Any idea what could be causing it? Could it be the write caching of windows? If I check the Turn off Windows write-cache buffer flushing on the device would it get resolved? Does that have an impact on the performance of an internal (non SSD) SATA HDD? Could it be due to a partitioning issue?

Answer:Occasional high HDD activity for no apparent reason.

Any tasks running in the background while computer is idle? Virus scans, defrag, etc? What does Task Manager show while this activity is happening?

Answer:Ideapad Y710 with occasional cpu usage pegged at 100%

Hi, Did you try opening up task manager to see which process was taking up all the CPU cycles? That might help to pin-point the problem. You could also turn off the camera with fn + esc to see if the problem is camera related.

I got this machine to look at as it had unusually high CPU usage and the CPU fan tends to stay on high speed though the machine isn't running any applications or visible tasks- just idling. I note that it has Norton Internet Security on it with a full year subscription though I'm not a big fan of Norton or McAfee. I had some program called Internet Security 2009 in the language of German on it but used Add/Remove Programs to get rid of it- likely malware or rogue AV. I also see a CA eTrust Internet Security Suite installed in the systray though upon opening it says nothing is installed- this being after I click OK to a popup message "eTrust Security Center: calSS.exe - Unable to Locate Component - This application has failed to start because ISafeIf.dll was not found reinstalling the application may fix this problem". I don't have a copy of the application and AppRemover was unable to find it in its scan so I could remove it. Any suggestions on that one?

I have gone thru the registry and removed quite a lot of items that load at startup so the systray is pretty light now and some things have improved. I removed all of the Java and will put updated versions on after you give the "all clear". I just wanted to have some eyes on the logs to see if anything else needs to go and if someone has a suggestion of how to get this CA Security Suite off of here as I know too many of these programs is more harmful than good.

Answer:XP Pro w/Unusually high CPU usage (CPU fans stays on high) - Logs attached

You can allow RogueKiller to fix the items it found, but I am not finding any malware in your logs. I suggest you post in the software forum for further assistance.

Since you are not having any malware problems, it is time to do our final steps:
We recommend you keep Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for scanning/removal of malware. You can uninstall RogueKiller and HitManPro.
Go back to step 6 oof the READ ME and renable your Disk Emulation software with Defogger if you had disabled it.
Any other miscellaneous tools we may have had you install or download can be uninstalled and deleted.
If running Vista or Win 7, it is time to make sure you have reenabled UAC by double clicking on the C:\MGtools\enableUAC.reg file and allowing it to be added to the registry.
Go to add/remove programs and uninstall HijackThis.
Goto the C:\MGtools folder and find the MGclean.bat file. Double click on this file to run this cleanup program that will remove files and folders
related to MGtools and some other items from our cleaning procedures.
After doing the above, you should work thru the below link:

About a year ago, I noticed that my computer was running slow (both online and off) and that the explorer.exe process listed in the Windows Task Manager was usually running very high. Windows Explorer seemed to crash a lot as well. A few months ago, I attempted to install Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0 on my computer and before the install completed a warning window popped up saying something like 'there is already another instance of Kaspersky running' (which was not the case since this was the first time I had ever attempted to install Kaspersky software) and the install failed. When I rebooted my computer, I got the blue screen of death for a few seconds and then Windows booted with a message saying that Windows had recovered from a serious problem. Since recovering from whatever happened after the failed Kaspersky install, my computer is slower than ever and the Task Manager still shows a high CPU usage even though the System Idle Process is high and there isn't any processes listed that are using much CPU time at all.

I just scanned my system with the latest updated versions of AdAware, Spybot S&D, SuperAntiSpyware, and Avira AntiVir. All of them found nothing. I then cleaned my computer with CCleaner and ran HijackThis.

Hi

I think some kind of background processes stress the CPU.
You could check this in task manager-> processes tab
Click on CPU column to get the processes ordered and to show all the processes which stress the CPU.

Closing or disabling such processes can help to reduce the CPU performance.

Answer:Very high CPU usage, causing very high laptop CPU temps (90c idle)

Hello. First off, having utorrent effectively craps you out on this forum since it has a bad rep. Suggest you remove it and come back, start a new thread. That said, if you're familiar with Task Manager, check the CPU percentage on the processes tab (click CPU column to sort). This may help pinpoint which app(s) are whack.

There is a serious issue with svchost.exe on my windows 7 computer. My HP Touchsmart 300-1025 has windows 7 64bit installed and svchost is slowing down the computer and using very high cpu and memory usage. It is not a virus or malware. I know the computer is not infected because one the computer has webroot and two if it was a virus or malware I would not be able to use the computer at all. So it has to be an issue with windows 7 64bit itself. Here is a screenshot of what I'm talking about and proof.

Recently my computer has been plagued by High CPU and general malware. I believe i've removed most of the malware. But I can't seem to fix the issue with the dllhost.exe and multiple explorer.exe running.

First i ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, then I ran Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit. Found lots of issues. all resolved. Ran them recently again and no malware was found. Still have the explorer.exe issue though.

Then I used combofix, but it changed nothing.

In the meanwhile i've just been ending the explorer.exe processes that take high CPU. This allows me to temporarily use my computer before they start popping up again.

Hi all, hope you can help.

Every so often, when listening to online radio streams/playing games etc my computer just goes crazy. I get a lot of hard drive 'chatter' and lots of fan noise and everything slows to a crawl. My music will start jumping and skipping and there is a long delay between me clicking the mouse and the action happening. It happens when no other programs (for example, my AV/AS) are due to scan. When I look at my Task Manager the two biggest eaters of memory usage are fm.exe (game, it normally eats a load but makes no substantial difference to the comp speed) and ekrn.exe (something to do with my AV, not quite sure what it actually does though)

I am running Windows MCE SP3 and am using NOD32 anti-virus and Sunbelt CounterSpy anti-spyware. The definitions on both are updated daily and both scan daily. I have also defragged the comp and do so weekly. The other programs I use are CCleaner and Glary Utilities, both fairly regularly to clean up my comp when I was working as an internet researcher, but less often now.

I do not get any error messages/BSOD's or actual freezes. Everything just slows right down. Could I have picked up a form of malware/virus that my AV/AS isn't picking up? Could one of my previous spring cleans have been too aggressive? Or is it simply too much load for my comp (2 year old Dell)? It is 3MHz, 1G RAM, kinda your bog standard media comp from 2007.

Hi,
I have a i7 3770k at 3.9 ghz, so stock with turbo boost.
I tried oc'ing to 4.5 ghz, didnt fix the problem.
Basically, in some games i get high cpu usage and at the same time low gpu usage.
My system is i7 3770k, gtx1070, 16 gb ddr3 ram, corsair hx850i psu.
In witcher 3 novigrad, which is cpu heavy, i sometimes get gpu usage at like 70% which causes stutter, at the same time cpu usage is around 85%.
When i leave town i get 95-99% gpu usage again and my cpu usage drops.
Dying light same, if cpu usage is high my gpu usage drops.
Battlefield 1 is normally fine in 95-99% gpu usage, except st quentin, but others reported this too.
What can this be? My cpu shouldnt be bottlenecking. Like i said i trid overclocking, didn't help.

Ok, I am literally KILLING myself over this!

I installed Windows 7 64Bit over XP around a month ago and it was so good that I recommended it to my brother who was previously on XP too. We got him a copy of the 32bit version as he has only 2gb of memory, and he installed it on his machine. However, he constantly had high CPU and RAM usage (Even though no programs were obviously taking it all up in his task manager) and it was making his computer sluggish and slow. Everything was freezing and hanging and it was a nightmare.

I spent a day looking all over the net to find out the problem, but could not fix it at all, no matter what the hell I tried. So he reverted back to Windows XP. (A nice waste of money on Windows 7.) His Windows XP now runs smoothly and is all as it was.

Suddenly today, after my brother connected to my Windows 7 homegroup (or workgroup rather) through his Windows XP machine, my computer got the EXACT same problem as he had ages ago! I have been browsing Google all day downloading s**t, changing things in my computer, trying EVERY possible fix that people have suggested and that sound legit. Nothing works!

So now all of a sudden, my computer is sluggish, games are jumpy and jittery, video rendering times are slooooooow.

Here is a picture of my resource monitor:

Answer:Windows 7 random CPU usage and high physical memory usage!!!

I can tell you what is probably causing your problems. AVG.
When you are looking at memory, do not sort by Working set, sort by Hard faults.
Hard faults is what causes things to slow down. Plus you have plenty of memory not to worry about usage.

Hi,

I just bought my brand new laptop and have loaded Vista Ultimate 32bit onto it for about 5 days. I noticed something unusual about Vista's CPU usage while idle in the task manager as well as the Resource monitor.

I have attached two pictures to show my problem. Notice that my CPU usage is always at about 40-60% on both of my cores. However, the average CPU usage per process shows that it should actually occupy about 15% to at most 20% (by adding up all the highest average CPU for processes in the first picture). The second picture I attached shows the current CPU usage sorted by max usage, and again it does not add up to 41%!

Although at 40-60% usage, I do not notice any major performance impacts, as both cores are not loaded to the max. However, I do notice Vista chewing up more battery than needed when I have my laptop running off batteries. Because the max frequency for the processor would always need to be raised to around 60% even when idle (instead of say... 10-20%).

I have searched online for various problems relating to high CPU usage, and most of the responses are about tracing down which process is the culprit. Well, this is where I'm stumped because it all does not add up! According to the process view, everything is normal but my system resources are still get constantly chewed up by something invisible it seems.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated at this point!
 

Answer:Vista Ultimate 32: high CPU usage does not correspond with process usage

Posting two more image to show this problem from the task manager...

Notice that the system idle process is 84, and yet CPU usage is 42? I always thought that:
CPU usage + idle process = 100?

Perhaps things are done differently with dual core processors? This is my first dual core so I'm not sure. The second image shows how both my cores are being used roughly equally, at around 50%.

Greetings,
 
I formatted my computer, and after installing windows 7 again, my physical memory in task manager is very high, and cpu keeps jumping up and down.
 
I looked at the processes tab, but noticed absolutely nothing taking abnormal memory (private working set.) Then moved on to performance tab> resource monitor, and found svchost (I think it was netsvcs in parenthesis,) hogging all the memory. After ending the process, I still have had high memory usage, and surprisingly, do not see a process anywhere in task manager with high numbers next to it, so I have no idea what's happening.
 
I have noticed that my windows 7 folder keeps increasing in size, currently about 26 gigs, and a helper told me that it's normal because the updates in windows 7 have a different compression method than windows 8 and after, however when I had previously installed windows 7, fully updated... my folder size was normal, so I assume it can be done?
 
I originally posted in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs section, however I did not find malware on my computer, so unless it's very new malware, I am certain windows 7 is causing this problem.
 
For antivirus, I am currently using a free trial of Norton.
 
Advice?
 
P.S. This is probably better for the hardware section, but can constant high physical memory, and cpu usage ruin my hardware? I am avoiding using things that take up high cpu and memory right now, and it's currently about 1.2 g... Read more

Hi,
 
Just yesterday I realized that my computer was acting super slowly and I even received a blue screen of death out of nowhere. Upon checking my processes list,I found many suspicious processes that continued to multiply when I tried to end them. These included: PresentationHost.exe, msdtc.exe, dllhost.exe, prevhost.exe, cmd.exe, msiexec.exe, conhost.exe, and even a notepad.exe that seems to be invisible. A malware is most likely behind this, and is causing my computer to perform very slowly and be almost unusable, I have managed to run FRST, but Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not even opening for me. In addition, this multiplying issue seems to only occur when I am connected to the internet. I would highly appreciate some help!

I receive the same alert from AVG whether I am using IExplorer, Firefox or Chrome. Also, in the task manager the CPU usage is sometimes almost 50% and it's always the internet browser I have open. Computer seems a bit sluggish. I have also been having trouble viewing videos on surfline.com (but not anywhere else). I am more than happy to delete any programs you think would be adding to the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

I've been having this problem now for an year or so now. It started when I upgraded my connection from 8/1 ADSL to 100/10 cable (so the problem wasn't noticeable even if it was there before) and when I download at high speeds (in steam, for example) my CPU usage jumps to 80% and higher, and my pc starts to stutter (mouse, audio, everything).

What makes it harder for me to track down, is that it does not happen right after I start my PC. For a good 1 to 3 hours after starting my PC I can download fine at full speed (~12MB/s) without any problems. But after my PC has been on for few hours the problem starts. When ever I download above 5MB/s (sometimes even above 3MB/s) my CPU usage goes to around 75% to 99% and everything stutters, mouse, video, audio etc.

Using Task Manager, it shows that NT Kernel & System is what is using the CPU.
Process Explorer shows Hardware Interrupts and DPCs as the cause for high CPU usage.

I've tried updating my drivers (mouse, keyboard audio, video and network drivers are up to date), but I cannot seem to find USB or hard drive drivers in case it's those that are causing it. If it's even drivers causing it.

I'm using AVG Free and ZoneAlarm.
My HDD is 7200rpm so it should be able to handle 100mb cable connection. (not 100% sure about that)

I've also noticed that my windows has set pagefile at 8190MB, even though it says 12285MB is recommended. But that might not have anything to do with the problem.

Answer:Stuttering and high CPU usage while downloading at high speeds

Hey, some thoughts,

- Is your BIOS up-to-date?
- Are you sure AVG Free and ZoneAlarm work nicely together? They used to be fine couple years ago when they were AV/Firewall but recent versions tend to cross-over. Try uninstalling one? I can't say why would the problem start after sometime though.
- Are you using Ethernet or wireless?
- How is your power options set in control panel? Try High Performance if it is not set that way already.

I guess these drivers are good for you too Latest AMD Chipset Drivers Released

What do I do to take care of this.? Norton anti- virus keeps giving me a Performance alert, & I simply don't know what to do...Can you help me.?I'm stumped.!!!!
 

Answer:High Memory Usage, & High CPU usage

The thing to do is use Task Manager ( right click on task bar at bottom of the screen, and choose Task Manager ). Then click on the Processes tab, click on the CPU column header so it sorts the rows by cpu usage. So now you will see the processes that use a lot of cpu.

If you are using Vista, or Windows 7; pull down the View menu, choose 'select columns' and then checkmark 'command line'. Then each row will give the location of the program on the hard drive.

Hi folks

I posted this problem at Spyware Specific forum, but was advised to post here.

Recently when I use RealProducer Plus v.10 to convert mpeg2 clips to rmvb, it takes a long time to do so. When I checked, RealProducer utilises over 90% CPU usage - as much as 94-95%, causing total CPU usage to be 95-98%. I have scanned with Norton and Adaware - all ok. Then I used Spy Sweeper - it found and cleared Csmin. Howveer, the problem still remains when I use RealProducer.

CPU usage without using RealProducer



CPU usage using RealProducer


Will my CPU will be damaged if CPU usage is so high?

Please help to take a look at my .exe processes. Are they OK?
What is PQV2iSvc.exe?

Please advise. Thanks a lot!
 

Answer:RealProducer utilises over 90% CPU usage? Will high CPU usage damage CPU?

To answer your question about PQV2iSvc.exe is part of Power Quest drive image and Norton Ghost drive backup software.

Converting video formats can be a resource intensive process. Unless your system temps are getting really high there shouldn't be any damage to the CPU.

Hi,
I have a i7 3770k at 3.9 ghz, so stock with turbo boost.
I tried oc'ing to 4.5 ghz, didnt fix the problem.
Basically, in some games i get high cpu usage and at the same time low gpu usage.
My system is i7 3770k, gtx1070, 16 gb ddr3 ram, corsair hx850i psu.
In witcher 3 novigrad, which is cpu heavy, i sometimes get gpu usage at like 70% which causes stutter, at the same time cpu usage is around 85%.
When i leave town i get 95-99% gpu usage again and my cpu usage drops.
Dying light same, if cpu usage is high my gpu usage drops.
Battlefield 1 is normally fine in 95-99% gpu usage, except st quentin, but others reported this too.
What can this be? My cpu shouldnt be bottlenecking. Like i said i trid overclocking, didn't help.
nvcp is set to prefer maximum performance and i'm playing at 1440p 144hz.

I have been having a big problem the last week with my computer. Everything is running incredibly slow. I opened the windows task manager, and it has shown very high CPU usage, often fluctuating between 80% and 100%, though sometimes staying between about 5-20%. The page file usage has been conistently high, the lowest being in the mid-600 kbs, while most often staying around 720 or 730 kbs. These patterns seem to be unaltered by the amount of programs I have running (the problem occurs even when there are absolutely no programs running) or whether I'm on the internet or not. I am very ignorant when it comes to computers, but I suspected it was some sort of spyware problem. However, after scanning with Norton 360, Spybot's Search and Destroy, Lavasoft Ad-Aware, and Microsoft Defender, only a few low-level threats showed up, and fixing them led to no improvement in my computer's performance. The slow functioning seems to be directly related to the times when the CPU usage is high.

My OS is Microsoft XP. My processor is 1.73 GHz. I have 504 MB of RAM. I will attach my HijackThis log below. I hope I haven't forgotten any necessary information, but I would appreciate any help you can offer. I'm becoming very frustrated.

Hi,

I spent a few painful hours at my inlaws house last night with no luck. Symptoms are as follows:
Occasional 100% CPU usage from two processes: rng.exe and NotifyAlert.exe (Might be unrelated, I uninstalled some Dell Support stuff and haven't seen this any longer)
Browsers (IE and FF) are redirecting search results to spam sites.

I'm out of the loop as far as good malware removal strategies since I thankfully haven't had any problems with any of my own PCs. I ran SUPERAntiSpyware and MalwareBytes, also installed Microsoft Security Essentials. Previously they had AVG 9 which was up to date, but didn't catch this. I've also tried rolling back to a previous restore point with no luck.

Here's the logs, any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Hey All, I'm not the best with Computer Hardware I guess you could say, however I've been noticing that my H30 is using a lot of RAM even if my computer is just running Chrome, Steam and at times TeamSpeak. Right now, I'm running those programs and Skype. Task Manager says that my Memory usage is at 61%, here is a screenshot of the Memory Tab in Task Manager. http://i.imgur.com/Phj2cnH.png As I say, I'm not the best with Computer hardware and all but, should the Memory Usage really be that high, just running such a small amount of programs, it increases a lot higher when I start playing games such as Red Orchastra 2 and Grand Theft Auto V. Does anyone have any information regarding this, or suggestions. Thanks,Ben

Answer:H30 - High Memory Usage High Constantly

Hey there. That is completely normal, the Windows OS does take up some memory. However, if you feel that the computer is slow or is laggy, you can upgrade your RAM. They are typically easy to upgrade and not too expensive.

My computer gets extremely slow when left on for more than a day. This started happening a few months ago and I thought I could just deal with it but it's getting pretty bad. So after a day or two, whenever I experience heavy internet usage such as downloading anything or viewing sites with large images, my computer locks up with near 100% CPU usage and it becomes inoperable until the download stops. Streaming videos isn't as bad but there's still a noticable slow-down until it's finished streaming. Even downloading something small like Panda's activescan today caused my CPU usage to spike up to the mid 80's. I'm running a dual core so it shouldn't be a problem. Oddly it only seems to be affected by internet usage -- it hardly happens when I'm playing a game.

On an unrelated note (maybe?) I keep getting a pop-up from my taskbar saying a USB device is not recognized and is malfunctioning, but all of my USB connected hardware is working perfectly. It's been going on for a while, way before the main problem started happening. It's not a problem really, just very annoying when I see it pop up every 10 minutes. Could that be a hardware issue where the connection on the motherboard got loose?

The following problem happens once/twice a day while playing Battlefield 4 (I've been spending most of these last days playing it) and started like last saturday (July 26). I'm playing Battlefield 4 (BF4) for 1 hour or so and everything is going just fine, but sometimes the game (image) starts to get really slow, losing fluidity and starts skipping, like stuttering (sorry I do not know if this is the correct english term for this phenomenon). When this starts to happen I alt+tab to the desktop, although it does take quite sometime (it gets slower than usual), and once I reach the desktop I open the Task Manager to see what is happening, this basically what I see (check images links at the end to better understand what is said next):
- RAM usage at 90% or more;
- I order the processes in a decreasing fashion and BF4 is at top but only consuming 1490MB or less of RAM;
- The rest of the processes consume less than 100MB each;
- I click on the Performance tab and see this >7GB of 7,9GB being consumed;
- I terminate the BF4 process to see what happens and the RAM goes down but still quite high ranging from 87-70% in the Processes tab, and in the Performance tab it goes down at 6,9-5,6GB of 7,9GB being consumed.
 
I suspect something is consuming the RAM but I can't seem to find out what is it. I even used the Process Expl... Read more

So, it's exactly as the title says,
I downgraded back down to windows 8 after feeling some sluggishness with my windows 10 OS.
It started off fine, but once I started downloading and installing necessary windows update files, I noticed once again the sluggishness I felt before, except this time my System Disk which is also my SSD drive, was being used up to 100% while my CPU was completely fine

Can someone please help me out in this scenario.

Answer:High Physical memory usage with low CPU usage

Hello and To BC!

Look under the process tab in the task manager and find out what process is using the most resources. Does this same situation happen when google chrome is closed?

Hi, In November I purchased a new Lenovo Y50. It's the non-touch 1080p version with the GTX960m. Recently, I've had issues with the fans spinning up while the laptop is idle. I opened task manager, and there are random spikes of 100% disk usage on startup and sometimes when I leave the machine idle or I'm using Chrome. Recently, I've noticed strange spikes in CPU usage too, with occasional bouts of 20% usage for seemingly no reason.  I contacted support, and they weren't able to find any issues, but had me install Lenovo Solution Center and do a full run of the tests, which didn't find anything wrong. They also had me disable all non essential startup programs and see if the problem happened again, and it does. However, cpu and disk temperatures were normal, so I was told to just monitor the problem and see if anything changes.   My system's definitely not functioning properly. Startup is notably slow considering it has the 8gb ssd and I never had issues with the fans coming on when I first got it. I've heard that there are issues with the hybrid 8gb ssd/1 tb hdd, so I need some input on this. Why is this happening? Is it a hardware issue? Firmware? My case number is 8006295558. I would greatly appreciate some help from a rep or anyone who can give me a hand with the issue.

Every time I start my computer in the morning, my CPU usage and PF usage are very high, slowing down the system, for about 45 mins to 1 hour. I have included images of the Performance Tab and Processes tab of Task Manager. The image of the Performance Meter is not a totally accurate reflection of the issue, because usually the CPU usage bounces between 60% and 100%.I am using Windows XP Home EditionVersion 2002Service Pack 3Intel Pentium D CPU 2.80 GHz1.5 GB RAMI have already used CCLeaner and Uniblue. I have scanned with MS Defender and AVG Free version. That is the current AV software I am running. I am also using Norton Ghost to maintain a backup of my computer.

Hello,

This is my very first post on bleepingcomputer.com and it's for getting some information on possibly analyzing a hijackthis file.

Here's the situation:

My mother owns a Dell PC purchased last year with Windows Vista 32 bit, Avira Antivir is installed and I tell her to keep it up to date. She uses it just to send emails, chat with friends, send pictures around, use facebook and watch the occasional humorous video and she is certainly not a gamer.

Her last bill showed she used over 16gb for that month, 16GB! For email, pictures and facebook! I went through her PC, made sure she had her av updated, made sure her windows firewall rules were valid, made sure she didn't have anything suspicious installed... and still, I'm drawing a blank as to what could be causing her usage. I figure she's being possibly hacked into and blasting emails? I didn't notice any of that though..

Anyway, I read I'm not supposed to post the hijack this log until someone asks for it so I'll wait before doing so.

Thanks in advance.

Edit:
If this is the wrong forum, I apologize, I'll do better next time

First off I have 8GB of RAM, and I get notifications all the time that my RAM is high, and it wants to close programs.
The main program that worries me the most is Spotify is using 900MB of RAM when playing and 500MB when not playing. Why is this so high? The games I play are not even that high.
Also is there anyway to reduce how much RAM Chrome uses? All of the chrome added up has to be at least 2 GB of RAM.
I never had problems with RAM on my Laptop that ran Win7 with 8gb of RAM, and I ran the same programs. I switched to win8 because it was supposedly better at using RAM....

Not sure if I have memory leaks elsewhere too but I constantly get notifications that RAM is high, and the lowest it ever sits is at 60%
any help appreciated.

You can look at events, or run SysInternals Process Explorer, to find out what sub-process is eating up RAM.

Since Jan-Feb of this year I have encountered the following issue while trying to play games on my laptop.

Abnormally High CPU Usage
Extremely low FPS - After 5-20 Mins of play.
Extremely High latency to servers - from 300 - 900 after 5 - 20 mins of play.

The thing is all of these started 1 year after I been using this laptop, after a full year of everything running flawlessly all these issues kicked in after I performed a clean install in Jan., I even performed one in Feb. and one 3 weeks ago, since someone suggested this could fix my issue and I still face the same problem.

I would kindly take any suggestions since I am so desperate that I am considering trowing this device out the window.

Here are my specs:

OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
Version 6.1.7600 Build 7600
System Manufacturer Dell Inc.
System Model Studio 1558
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU M 520 @ 2.40GHz, 2400 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 4.00 GB
Name ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5400 Series
Adapter Description ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5400 Series
Adapter RAM 1.00 GB (1,073,741,824 bytes)

Hi.
I was using my laptop a few days ago. I left to go out and came back about an hour later. I notice my CPU usage was running @ 100% & the memory @ 80%.My laptop just stopped. I went into safe mode and that is where I am currently . I have deleted almost everything I don't use(didn't mind).I've even gone to msconfig to check off things i don't use.The initial response was good.CPU usage dropped, but as soon as I used the internet,rebooted or used an Icon everything that I discontinued in msconfig would be checked again.I did this several times.
I ran Iobit Advance system care w/ everything that it possess & ran Spyhunter all in safe mode.It did'nt come up with much.I am currently Googling for anything that match my criteria.There are a few but no good remedies. I don't have a backup disk to use to restore or else I would have tried.I am looking for any good advice. I hope that i dont have to replace the processor or the memory. I mostly use this laptop for games,emails,social media,and searches. Please help.Thanks

So I've been dealing with high CPU usage and physical memory usage for a while now and was wondering if anyone could help. I've been looking at windows task manager and I think I've found the culprit. I rebooted my computer just to make sure and I believe its one of the 12 svchost.exe processes running on my computer. When the computer rebooted it was fine but then after some minutes that process shot up to as much as 1,000,000k in physical memory usage right now its around 705,148k. I assume that there is my problem but I am not exactly sure so I was wondering if anyone here could help me out. Thanks.

As the title says. I have been getting occasional BSOD out of nowhere for the last month I would say. It approximately happens 2-3 times a week. I don't see any repeating pattern.
Actually the last one happened while I was typing in mozilla firefox to enter an adress. That's the only one I remember when it happened exactly.

Answer:Occasional BSOD out of nowhere

It appears that your win32k.sys system file got corrupted somehow.


Code:
BugCheck 3B, {c0000005, fffff96000144283, fffff8800727c060, 0}

TRIAGER: Could not open triage file : C:\Program Files\Windows Kits\8.0\Debuggers\x86\triage\modclass.ini, error 2
Probably caused by : win32k.sys ( win32k!HmgLockEx+a3 )
From what I see that can only be fixed by a system repair. Maybe someone more experienced could post more information about this.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (possibly directx).
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have raid update its Driver.

Memtest.





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

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

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

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

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

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

Have you checked windows update for optional updates for the machine.
They're just general kernel mode traps, it could be a bad driver, or it could be bad ram.

Answer:Occasional BSOD

Welcome!

I suggest testing your memory. Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using ImgBurn. Boot from the CD, and run at least 5 passes.

In addition, try running a system files check. Open an elevated command prompt and enter sfc /scannow.

Question: Occasional BSOD

So far it seems to happen close to when I click Play on a game in my Steam library. Should this be a GPU driver issue, I am uninstalling them anyways to install a new card tomorrow along with making sure my RAM is seated properly, etc. I built this computer about 2 or 3 weeks ago and have had about 4 BSOD as of today. I also ran sfc /scannow in cmd and the cbs log said that it could not repair WTVGOTHIC-RB.ttc which I wouldn't think is the problem to the random BSOD. Any help is appreciated

Answer:Occasional BSOD

Also, booting with verifier causes it to blue screen right at start. Which means it is most likely a driver causing the problem. I am just not sure which one.

Question: Occasional BSOD

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Since yesterday evening I've encountered two stop errors. Both incidents occurring quite far apart from each other. I have a feeling it might be related to Flash, as the first time it happened while listening to a song via a flashplayer, and the second being moments ago, right as I opened a page to watch a live streaming game development tournament. More concerned about the BSOD than missing the thrilling coding tournament.

Anyways, any help would be much appreciated.

EDIT: I am now entirely unsure of the cause, as I tried to reproduce what happened earlier and I was actually successful in viewing the stream.

Answer:Occasional BSOD

Complaining about NOT getting a BSOD? (just kidding!)

The dump files point to: WUSB54Gv4x64.sys Wed Dec 27 04:41:31 2006
This is a USB wireless adapter driver, which is also seriously outdated.
Also, there have been known issues with some of these (with RaLink chipsets) in the 64 bit flavor - but that has recently been fixed.

Please go to the website of your device manufacturer and download the 64 bit, Windows 7 version of the driver and install it. Test to see if that remedies your problems (if you don't get a BSOD in a day or two, it's probably fixed).

Question: occasional BSOD

Hi guys,
this is my third posting today on the same issue.
For some reason, I receive an email that somebody has answered my post and when i click on the link I get invalid thread "no thread specified", so I cannot see the answer.

I am experiencing occasional BS and need to know what drivers are causing this.
I include a zip file of SF diagnostics.

thanks

Answer:occasional BSOD

Might not be a driver, might be a dodgy controller on the SSD? Does Corsair use Sandforce? There are numerous complaints about those if you scout around a bit.

Question: Occasional BSOD

I did a clean upgrade from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional 64bit and twice now I've gotten a BSOD with the same reason. These were weeks apart. I ran WhoCrashed and it puts out this:

This was likely caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe
Bugcheck code: 0x9F (0x3, 0xFFFFFA80047B5060, 0xFFFFF80004007518, 0xFFFFFA8009D4FA10)
Error: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE
Dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\061010-39811-01.dmp
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft? Windows? Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporadescription: NT Kernel & System
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect, possibly the culprit is in another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.

From what I can tell ntoskrnl.exe could mean anything. Attached is a zip with the 2 dmp files. If someone can check those out and give me any guidance it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hey guys,

Just a bit of info behind this-
Over the course of the past year or so, my computer has had random BSODs. It is fairly new too - got it in December 2010. What is starting to concern me is that I got a BSOD today, but I had got one yesterday as well. I'd really appreciate it if anyone would help me with this as I would really like to possible resolve this issue before it gets worse.

Thanks Please find attached my Diagnostics tool results.

Hi,

It looks like you are running a system builder OEM version of Windows 7. Lets start by making sure there aren't any underlying activation issues:

1. Download and save this tool to your desktop:
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012

2. Run the tool, and then click 'Copy' - ignore any errors if they appear

3. Use CTRL+V to paste the unedited results of the validation tool here in your next reply

This PC crashes once every week or so, occasionally more or less often.

Attached is the BSOD files as per isntructions.

Answer:Occasional BSOD Win7 Pro

These were related to a driver power state timeout. I suspect one of the below drivers are causing it. They need to be updated or removed.


Code:

StkMini.sys 7/4/2006 3:41:15 AM
ser2pl.sys 7/31/2007 6:45:49 AM
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.

Hi.

I hope you guys can help me to resolve this random BSODs that are occouring randomly on my new PC (less then 1 month old). I got about three BSOD in about three weeks. But I got only one dmp file. First two times there was no dmp file. Then I changed the location of dmp files and on third BSOD I managed to get a dmp file.

I think the problem is gdrv.sys. I already uninstalled Gigabyte Energy Saver app and I thought I solved the problem. PC was up for one week. But this morning there was a BSOD again. I must mention that BSOD occours when PC idles for couple of hours.

My configuration:
- Windows 7 x64 Professional (OEM)
- installation is less then 1 month old
- HW is less then 1 month old
- custom build PC
- motherboard Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3
- Kingston value RAM 2x 2GB 1.5V
- Intel 2500k processor
- Gigabyte Nvidia GTX460SE
- Samsung F3 1GB

Thank you very much for all your help and sorry for my "not so good" english.

Not too much information in one dmp file and the driver causing it is un-named. This was a memory exception but the driver is inconclusive

I would run memtest

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

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

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

Any chance someone could take a look at the MEMORY.DMP file (zipped as MEMORY.ZIP) which can be downloaded here
(47MB) - I will leave it there until this is resolved, or until 31 Jan 2010.
I originally bought the system with Vista installed just over a year ago.
I 'downgraded' to XP and have had no problems with system.

I just re-built with Win7 / XP dual boot - XP no problems.
But Win 7 occasionally BSODs on Boot - but will immediately reboot clean.
I use the PC every day and have had a BSOD twice in 2 months.

I figure its possibly a driver timing out, and if I knew which I could search for an alternative.

Occasionally my computer will BSOD during shutdown. Before the BSOD, it will stay on the shutting down screen for a couple of minutes. This time I didn't even see the BSOD - after staying on the shutting down screen, the screen went blank and eventually I just did a hard shut down. When I logged in, I received a dialog stating that the computer had BSOD'd.

zip file is attached

-Windows 7 Professional SP1 x64
-Not the original OS, from MSDNAA
-Age of system varies: graphics card - 2 months, CPU/motherboard/RAM - 6 months, power supply - 1 year, hard drives/network adapter/cdrom drive - 5 years
-Age of OS installation - less than 2 months, I had the issue on a previous installation of the same OS as well

It looks like you have some corrupt memory.

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

Hey guys.

So, a little backstory - last month, I RMA'd my motherboard (MSI Z97S SLI Krait) and re-installed it. A couple of weeks later, I got random BSODs. There doesn't seem to be a definite pattern to them. Some are while I'm playing a game, some are while I'm just watching a video. Some days, I don't see one at all. The error I've seen mostly is IRQL_not_less_or_equal.

I'm thinking it's a driver issue, though I have no idea where to start looking. I tried using the Windows debugging tool, all I could find was "probably ntkrnlmp.exe".

Thanks in advance for any help.

Answer:Occasional BSOD / freeze

The 6/12 dump at 1:02AM indicates some problems with:


Code:

*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for usbfilter.sys
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for rtwlanu.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for rtwlanu.sys
Probably caused by : memory_corruption

usbfilter.sys dated Tue Aug 28 21:27:12 2012 belongs to AMD USB Filter Driver.
rtwlanu.sys dated Thu Oct 01 02:13:28 2015 belongs to Realtek WLAN Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter.

Is the current mother board a MSI Z97S SLI Krait also?

Is the AMD USB on the motherboard?
Is the Realtek a USB dongle?

Need to find updated drivers for both of these.

Hi y'all,
I'm having a somewhat tentative issue with my computer blue screening coming out of hibernation or standby. I'm currently running Windows 8.1.
 
After waking, my internet browser will suddenly stutter and freeze. I get an error about shockwave flash not responding, or failing, I can't remember exactly. Stopping the plugin returns things to normal. Having it try to continue just leads to another lock up and error message.
 
However, after stopping the plugin, the computer blue screens a few seconds later, usually when trying to get to another website, with an error with debutfilterx64.sys. This error occurs once every several months, I'd wager, and is very infrequent. The shockwave flash error sometimes doesn't even lead to a crash.
 
I'm told this is associated with debut media software, specifically the Debut Video Capture, though I did not voluntarily install this to my knowledge, and I am the sole user of this laptop. However, the driver is clearly on my computer.
 
I took this to microsoft, and their solution was to uninstall the program, which I was unable to do through the programs manager or revo uninstaller. The solution was to then rename the driver to .old instead of .sys. However, on restarting, my audio system was completely broken, unable to play any music or sound and saying there was an issue with real tek audio. It was unable to automatically fix the issue. Renaming the debut driver to .sys solved that, so they seem to be directly... Read more

Answer:Occasional BSOD with debutfilterx64.sys

Hi
 
As you said earlier, crash dump seems to blame debutfilterx64.sys as the reason behind the crashes.

BugCheck 3B, {c0000005, fffff80002603156, ffffd0003b9c2a10, 0}

Probably caused by : debutfilterx64.sys ( debutfilterx64+3156 )
Since we don't know which program actually installed it ( probably came as part of an OEM pre-installed software )  , i would suggest updating the driver to the latest version as a test. If i assumed correctly, installing the latest version of Debut Video Capturing software will update the existing driver automatically and properly. So download and install the latest version from the below link.

Hi everyone, Ive been getting some bsods, maybe one a day. They happen when i'm not overclocked and when im overclocked, I've played crysis for hours with no problem at 1920X1200, but other times when im just surfing and listening to music, bam: bsod. In fact, two others came with little/no stress on the system, and one came on shutdown.

from what I can tell, (dump files and sysinfo attached) its corrupted memory, but I pass memtest86+ 9+ hours... so it's not corrupted memory?

Realtemp reports 36C idle, 49C max load and prime95 passes after 9+ hours

Heres my build:
CM 690 case
CM realpower Pro 550W
[email protected] with xigmatek HDT-S1283
4gb gskill 800 5-5-5-15 (2x2) (had errors on memtest at 1.8v, passes at 1.9v, but still getting bsods)
gigabyte EP43-DS3L
sapphire HD 4870 with fanspeed set to 45%, catalyst 8.7
pioneer blu-ray
segate barracuda 750 gig
running vista home premium x64 sp1

So I would suspect the power supply, except the crashes happen when I'm basically doing nothing, not when I'm stressing it. It's about a week old build... so really anyone have some ideas what else I can test to find what might be wrong, or even which part i should RMA? Thanks in advance
