Computer crashing at log in screen

Question: Computer crashing at log in screen

I just switched my motherboard, CPU, and RAM, and now my computer crashes when I reach the log in screen. I think there's a problem with drivers. Is there any way I can fix this problem? I have the hard drive plugged into another computer, so if I need to change something on the hard drive I can do that.The processor is an Intel i5 2500, upgraded from an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor (can't remember the exact number, but it ran at 3 GHz).The motherboard is an ASUS P8P67 LE, upgraded from an ASUS P5Q.The RAM is G.Skill Ripjaws X, I think (two sticks of 2 GB DDR3), upgraded from Ballistix Tracer (2 x 2GB).

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.)

It's the second time in a row this has happened in two days.
The first time was a gray screen crash and now today it was black. There's no words or nothing when it crashes, just a blank gray/black screen.
I rebooted it like normal yesterday, but today when I rebooted it, my computer had to scan or verify something involving the CHKDSK and NTFS.

I have no clue what those things are and if could help me explain how to fix it, could you explain it in simple terms?
And my computer is a SONY Vaio Laptop if that helps.
 

Answer:Computer Screen Crashing

Check disk is used to determine if there are any problems with the hard drive and NTFS is the type of formatting of your hard drive. There could be a problem with your hard drive or RAM; try using memtest to see if your RAM is okay and try to backup some of your important files to be on the safe side. Also, I know there is a program that can tell you if your hard drive is okay or it's about to die, do a google for that. This could be a problem with your windows setup as well, so you'll have to do those tests to see what the problem is.

Hey guys so recently I built my first gaming computer. Things haven't been going great I've had a few crashes during games which I believe have to do with outdated graphic drivers but nothing really that bad. Then yesterday after reverting back to old graphic drivers for my radeon 5770 since the current drivers were causing problems. I started playing napoleon total everything was running well no lag or anything then it just crashed but unlike the few times before I got the blue screen and then my computer restarted and was okay for about a minute or two and as soon as tried to run internet explorer it crashed and gave me the blue screen. It did this 3 times in a row and so I just shut it down and haven't used it since. I'm starting to get really frustrated since this computer is only a month old and already have problems. Any ideas on whats wrong really need help?

Answer:computer crashing/freezing screen

Hi Steve3040,you could try running 'Scandisk' and 'Defrag',in ME I think they can be found in Start>Programs>system tools.If you run them, make sure any screen saver and virus checker you have is turned off first.Also make sure your virus checker is uptodate and run it after Scandisk and Defrag. It is always a good idea to keep the virus checker uptodate.Have you downloaded anything onto your PC before it started freezing? If so it could be this that is causing the problem. If possible uninstall it.You also have an option of using the 'restore point' if all else fails. This again can be found in start>programs>system tools> restore point. It enables you to go back to a time when the PC was working properly. This option has its 'problems' 1. it is not a fix as such. 2. you will loose any and all work etc that has been put on the PC since the restore date.You may find that no restore points have been set or they have been set some time ago if you have not been making them yourself....so be warned.Mike

I did have this problem on XP but not to such a great extent. Perhaps it's something to do with the bios settings.

I tried clicking an option 'Load Failsafe defaults' which resulted in the mouse and keyboard not working but Vista desktop would load up. I managed to get back into the Bios upon start up and clicked 'Load optimized defaults' which brought the mouse and keyboard to work again.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen then restart your computer. If this screen appears again then follow these steps.

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properlly installed. If this is a new installation ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need
if the problem continues disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as cacheing and shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to disable or remove components then restart your computer and press F8 and select advance options then safe mode.

Answer:blue screen/computer crashing

Hi guineapig4774 and welcome to TSF !

What's the brand and model of this computer ? If it's a custom build then click on the "posting system specs" link in my sig and try to provide us with those informations.

If the hard drive makes unusual sounds it may be dying, hook it to another computer and backup your stuff as soon as you can.

What's the hard drive's brand and model ? If you don't know open the computer case and look on the sticker that's on top of the hard drive. Download the related HDD diagnostic utility (use the DOS bootable floppy or CD), enter the BIOS at startup and change the boot order priority to floppy or CD and run the long/extended test on the hard drive. Report if there are any errors.

Once you know the hard drive is not failing grab an XP CD (you can borrow a friend's for this purpose), boot on the CD, press 'R' to access the recovery console and from the c:\windows\ prompt type chkdsk c: /R. Retry to boot normally and tell us how it goes.

If that didn't help open the computer case and check that the HDD cables are hooked properly.

Hi all,

I am experiencing the problem from past one month or so.The title of my thread somewhat describes my problem but not entirely. My problem has changed its form over the course of time.I'm elaborating here. The problem first started with my desktop freezing randomly with a buzzing sound from the speaker.This continued for few days.Then it changed to freezing randomly with the cursor fixed on the screen.Any moving thing just would freeze,i.e if there was a progress bar indicating some installation or video play then it just used to stop.Sometimes it used to restart on it own,sometimes I had to do it manually.I also would get the "display driver stopped working and has recovered" message.On reboot I would/do get Black screen after the Windows login.Now my problem is switching between the two modes i.e. random freezing with buzzing sound from the speaker and random freezing with mouse stuck on the screen,restarting with a black screen and showing display driver error message.While the later one seems to be more common.

Things I tried

1.Uninstalling Nvidia driver,cleaning driver left out files with Driver Sweeper and again performing clean Install latest driver.Didn't work.

2. I even took my gpu to the asus service centre as mine was of asus.I got it replaced and tested from them.Didn't work either.I can't assume they've replaced it with a copy having the exact same problem

Hi,

I'm running into an issue where my computer is crashing and I can't figure out whats causing it. It goes directly to black screen (monitor shows lost signal) and initiates a restart and nothing in particular seems to trigger it.

What I'm getting in the system event viewer is the following:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: System Error
Event Category: (102)
Event ID: 1003

Description:
Error code 10000050, parameter1 90909220, parameter2 00000000, parameter3 bf94bad1, parameter4 00000000.

I've attached the mini dump file as well, I've renamed it to .txt because it wouldn't let me attach a .dmp. The only thing I can think of that might have triggered it is I installed system mechanic and it repaired a bunch of registry stuff, and cleared some old files out, but once it started happening I restored back to before registry mechanic was installed.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello,I am not sure if my computer is infected.Yesterday, my computer started freezing (crashing), a few times the blue screen came up. It takes a random amount of time for it to freeze.

I ran the windows memory diagnostics tool after getting a crash straight to black screen, not even 5% of the way in the computer rebooted and instead of loading the BIOS it just beeped repeatedly. I managed to get it to boot again, I burned memtest to a disk and ran it from the disk, even after 7 passes it showed no errors. Now I am unsure what to do next to identify the problem, I suspect that it's the hard drive at the moment.

Answer:Computer Crashing straight to black screen

Replace the ram, and try again. If that fails to correct the issue, move on to the HDD.

You can test the HDD from any tool from the manufacturer.

So about 2-3 times a day during random computer usage (internet, ms word, etc.) my computer will suddenly begin pixelating and a second later show a blue screen filled with words. The blue screen is up for about 1 second then the computer blacks out and restarts.
It takes about 10mins for it to get back to normal (regular desktop screen) then it will either:
A: Let me use it like normal until it crashes again later on.
B: Immediately crash again anywhere from 2-5 times repetitively.
This has been happening for a couple of months but has gotten progressively worse in the amount of times it crashes. It?s a bit annoying to wake up and have all my homework, browsers or projects closed out every morning.
I have researched the problem but nothing seems to be helping, I?ve tried a few virus/malware removers but it either comes up clean or just erases something that doesn?t seem to be the one I?m looking for.

Hi,

I'm running Windows XP pro on a home built computer. It was randomly restarting for a while so I turned off restart on system error. Now I get a blue screen saying Stop 0x000000FE and the name is BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER. I don't know what this means. I have a usb hub attached to one port with a printer and an empty cable attached. And a webcam attached to another port. I have never been present when this blue screen occurs, it's always when the computer's idle. Once when restarting after this blue screen I got another blue screen: Stop 0x000000E1 "Worker thread returned at bad IRQ". Do I have a USB related IRQ conflict or something?

Another thing I've seen is I've got this Micro Advantage dual layer dvd burner installed. It frequently will just restart my computer. Sometimes it happens when I put in a dvd and it will just restart and it consistently happens when I am copying files from a cd in that drive, and then push the Up button (to go up one directory).

The event manager often reports these events a minute or two before the error:



Code:
The IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service service entered the stopped (or sometimes it says 'running') state.

The SNMP Service has started successfully.

The Remote Access Connection Manager service entered the running state.

It apparently happened just after I severed a remote desktop connection this last time. Can anyone put the peices together to solve this problem? Thanks.

Answer:Computer Crashing- Blue Screen! BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER

Run checkdisk first. Then Run a few anti spyware tools, ie, adaware, msantispy, spybot... then uninstall the hardware from above and reinstall. See what happens.

You might have to do a bit more than that, but it's a start. The drastic step is to remove all drivers for everything you don't need, including video card, and then uninstall the PCI bus to reset all installed values. This takes a little longer, but the end result is a cleaner hardware environment. There are some other things you can do in the registry, but for now, we'll keep it simple.

Answer:Frequent computer crashing (black screen)

It most likely is a cooling issue more then the actual Operating System. If you can keep your computer alive for enough time download and install "speedfan" which allows you to see all the tempuartures when your using it. If it is the computer overheating then you need to go inside your case and check if the fans are running, if you are not exsperienced with hardware i would advice to get someone who is to do it for you

Hello,

I got help here once before for virus issues, so I'm hoping that I might get some help here again.

My windows 10 computer was in the middle of an update, when it just suddenly got stuck in a boot loop. I left it for several hours thinking it may be part of the update process for some reason, but eventually I tried turning it off and on again, but the same issue kept happening.


I tried running the windows 10 media creation tool and creating a USB with the windows 10 install from another computer, and from there I attempted to roll back to an earlier preview build. It encountered an error while doing that, and now it seems that I'm really stuck. I can't even get to the repair part when booting from USB. Whenever I try to run anything from it it immediately cuts to a blue screen saying that my device needs to be repaired (error code 0xc000000f)

Also, I just now tried booting from the USB again, and I didn't even have time to click on an option after repair before a blue screen came up saying that my computer needed to be restarted, and to search for "FAT FILE SYSTEM" for more help.

Anyone have any idea how to fix this? Any help would be appreciated.

So about 2-3 times a day during random computer usage (internet, ms word, etc.) my computer will suddenly begin pixelating and a second later show a blue screen filled with words. The blue screen is up for about 1 second then the computer blacks out and restarts.
 
It takes about 10mins for it to get back to normal (regular desktop screen) then it will either:
 
A: Let me use it like normal until it crashes again later on.
B: Immediately crash again anywhere from 2-5 times repetitively.
 
This has been happening for a couple of months but has gotten progressively worse in the amount of times it crashes. It’s a bit annoying to wake up and have all my homework, browsers or projects closed out every morning.
 
I have researched the problem but nothing seems to be helping, I’ve tried a few virus/malware removers but it either comes up clean or just erases something that doesn’t seem to be the one I’m looking for.
 
Any type of help or suggestions is highly appreciated, thanks!

Answer:computer blue screen crashing problem

Hello,

0x8E error can be caused by RAM issues. Try testing your RAM by using memtest86+. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool Run for at least a minimum 7 full passes.

Answer:Help! Computer keeps crashing. Blue screen of death.

Howdy,

First I would see if there is any updates for your Video card on the Manufactures website..If there is not a update for it I would re install the Driver for it anyways.

It also could be heat issue so lets see what Temperatures you have and check them every so often to see if they are going up.

You can use a free program called Speccy found at link below.....right hand of webpage Download latest version.

Either tell us the temps or paste a Pic of them

Hey All, Have a weird one that I have never seen before. after about an hour or so of the computer running (just a Dell Dimension E521, 4gb ram, 1TB HDD) the screen goes black and at the top in white letters states:

"Boot from CD:
No boot device detected, insert system disk and press F1 to continue or press F2 to set up menu."

I ran a chkdsk /F to check the hard drive for errors and came up with nothing. I also did a re-installation of Windows 10, the problem still exists.

any thoughts on what this could be, or is it just the hard drive going out?

Hello All,

I have a friend with a Dell, about 2 years old that is crashing. I get the blue screen of death upon booting his machine so I booted into safe mode. He has Norton Util 2005 installed so I ran the virus scan (found nothing) and nothing else will run in safe mode. Attempted to install Adaware SE, and it gives me the error that an admin policy is in place. ON A HOME MACHINE!?!?! LOL, damn spyware. Anyways, I ran hijackthis and here is the log. Let me know how to proceed from here.

Answer:blue screen, computer constantly crashing

Let's check your RAM.Download memtest86+ here:http://www.memtest.org/download/4.20/memtest86+-4.20.iso.zipThat's a .zip file so you will have to extract the iso once you have it downloaded. Right click, extract files.Then make a boot disk from the iso. You will need to use a iso burning program to burn the CD. If you're not sure if you have an iso burning program, try imgburn. Download it for free here:http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=downloadIf you're not sure how to burn the file to a CD, there's a guide here:http://neosmart.net/wiki/display/G/Burning+ISO+Images+with+ImgBurnOnce you have your CD burned, you need to restart the computer and start it from the CD. If you're not sure how to make your computer start from the CD, have a look here:http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000217.htmIf memtest finds any errors, you should replace the memory module(s).

Answer:Computer keeps crashing at Windows Logo screen

One sure way to see if it is a windows based problem is to boot off a cd like knoppix or other program and see if it is stable there.

If it goes fine for a month or 2 ,I would suspect a hardware malfunction(crimped/broken cables or loose connections)


Have you checked the hardware manager for conflicts?

Get a hd and try that (after trying a boot cd
power supply looks adequate
memory looks great

Hello there. I have a 7 year old Dell Dimension 2400 computer. It has Windows XP(32 bit) with 4 gigs of ram.

Recently I have installed several new software programs. Mostly utility applications and stuff to play video files. Things of that nature.

My computer froze up yesterday when I had a few applications running. I let it sit there for a while and it never unlocked itself and would not respond to anything I typed on the keyboard. I turned the power off and then turned it back on.

When I turn the power on it starts up the boot process. It displays the manufacturer information, then it goes to the Windows page, then I get a green screen of death, then it goes to a black screen with white text telling me that my system has crashed and asking me if I want to start up in safe mode or regular mode, etc. I have tried safe and regular but neither one will boot up beyond the Windows XP screen.

Any ideas on how I can resolve this? Do I need to create a CD boot disk and try to use that to load Windows properly?

Thank you so much in advance.

TC

Answer:Computer won't boot up all the way....... keeps crashing at the Windows XP screen

it sounds like a virus or more. Usually my rule is if it dosen't start in safe mode it is usually better time spent trying to recover data to do a wipe and reload.

Hello everyone,
I've built my new computer a week ago and I'm having a problem and I need to know ASAP if any part is defective to do a RMA.
When I play games, (League of Legends, Cod4,..), my computer randomly crashes on a black screen and a looping bug sound. The monitor says ''Monitor going to sleep''. I've tried to run OCCT on my GPU for about 30 minutes @ 90 degrees C withouth problem. I've done one or two pass in Memtest+ to check my RAM too.
Any thoughts on this? Maybe it is my PSU? I've heard about the NVidia HD audio too.
Here is my rig:

Good Afternoon everyone,

I have been having dificulties with my computer for the past month. It has been crashing to the blue screen upon startup lately and now I can't even use my computer on safe mode without it crashing. At first, I thought it was my Norton virus remover causing the problem. Although, disabling it did stop my computer from shutting down so rapidly, it didn't solve the problem compleltely. I got the stop error codes when it crashed to the blue screen today:

Stop: 0x0000001A (0x00041287, 0x0006E379, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

It will be very much appreciated if someone can help me figure out my problem because its been very frustrating.

Thanks in advance, guys!

My computer keeps crashing. Sometimes I get a random striped screen. other times it will go solid white. sometimes it goes blue but its not a bsod, its a lighter blue. sometimes It will reboot itself. It usually happens when playing games but sometimes happens when browsing or when playing songs on wmp. Ive uninstalled drivers and downloaded new ones, reset my system to factory defaults multiple times. hasn't gone away. I have a minidump file I believe if that will be of any help. here are my system specs:

Alienware x51

-Intel Core i5-4440 CPU @ 3.10 ghz

When running certain games (League of Legends, Worms, etc.) or skyping, my computer has started shutting off and the screen becomes solid with vertical green lines. This happens primarily when I have my external monitor plugged in. After this happens and I restart my computer, my external monitor says "input not recognized". After waiting 5-10 minutes the problem seems to fix itself and I can start my computer normally.
The reason i'm running an external monitor in the first place is because the screen on my laptop hasn't been working since September XD.
Any help or information on this problem would be greatly appreciated!
Thank,
-Joe

Answer:Computer crashing and screen becoming full of green lines

Hello Joe and welcome to the forums

It sounds like a driver error to me so lets have a go at updating your drivers.

1. Open the start menu
2. In the search box, type Device Manager
3. When it opens, expand the Display Adapters category
4. Right click on any entry in that category and select Uninstall
5. Reboot your computer

When windows reboots, it will see that the driver is missing and install it.

Hello,
The past couple of days i've been experiencing unusual behaviour from my computer. For the past few days I've been having crashing problems. The crashes aren't all the same however; on a handful of occasions it's given the famous old 'blue screen of death' and on others my computer either just turns off, or the whole computer just crashes. I've noticed the crashes only occur when I turn the computer to 'full peformance' mode after a couple of minutes meaning I'm literally unable to leave power save mode for more than 3 minutes.

I use 'EPU-4 Engine' to switch my computer between 'power save' mode and 'full peformance' mode only using full peformance if I want to play games or install something.

I didn't think much of this at start, as i've never had these problems before 2 days ago. I figured it may have been a faulty driver, so I downloaded specific ones for hardware, but that didn't solve the problem. I then tried a system restore to restore back to a previous date presuming it may have been an update that went wrong, but nothing changed, I still got the crashes. My final solution if nobody is unable to help is to reinstall windows and hope it's just some sort of error, but I doubt that'll fix it.

I run Windows 7 64 bit Home Edition,
AMD Phenom II x4 964,
ATI 5850 Graphics card,
4 GB's of Ram

Hopefully somebody will be able to provide me with some advice... Read more

Answer:Computer crashing/blue screen during 'full peformance' mode.

Sounds like the operating system is struggling if you ask me. Have you tried doing this in safe mode? And what's EPU-4 Engine? Otherwise I think reinstalling windows is the solution.

Hello friends,

Today my computer started crashing. Whenever the crash occurred my computer sounded incredibly loud, ostensibly with fans blazing. Additionally, I noticed the crashing was occurring during gaming (but it hadn't ever before), so I put a temperature monitor on my second screen. I observed that it was crashing at only about 80-83 degrees, which had never led to a crash before. My card is a GTX 760 and should, from what I have read, be able to survive 83 degrees without my computer crashing. Later in the day, my computer started crashing randomly. Then, whenever I booted normally I would only get a black screen with a white cursor after logging in. Then I reinstalled graphics drivers and the computer worked fine for half an hour and started crashing again. An hour later and it will only boot to the black screen with a white cursor (although safe mode working is absolutely fine albeit running on my secondary screen for some reason). Some of the crashes have recorded as bsods by my computer and I have done what the sticky says with them. I believe the issue is my card going bad but I would love a more knowledgeable opinion from the wonderful people here. The log files are attached.

Thanks in advance!

I was told by the people at the Total War forums that my computer should be able to run Shogun 2 Total War on medium settings on my ATI Radeon 4670 card. While the game demo itself was running smoothly, but during the first tutorial battle the computer suddenly froze and then the screen was a sickly yellow. I was running the computer on High Performance on the Power Options section of the Control Panel. I think I have the latest patch for the graphics in there, though I don't know if I have some of the stuff from the glitchy ATI driver update from Steam which was giving me similar issues only with a gray screen instead of a yellow one. I got that Steam driver update on the 22nd I believe and the current update on the 27th of February. Any way to fix this issue?

I'm hoping you guys can help me out, I just know I am infected by some malware, virus, or both and really need some help.

It seems everyday my computer gets slower and slower and I have to reboot often throughout the day to get it to run somewhat smoothly again.

Sometimes when I'm not so lucky, the browser freezes and after a while THE ENTIRE COMPUTER freezes and I have no choice but to hold the button to restart it.

My computer has a problem with crashing while playing a video in full screen. When it crashes the screen turns black while the speakers give out a buzzing noise. Everything is unresposive the only solution is to turn it off with the power button. It happens in any full screen video online or offline and even visualizations from windows media player and iTunes, but only in full screen. I don't think it's overheating either because sometimes it takes 30 mins to crash and other times it will crash immediately when put in full screen. *I've tried setting it back to factory settings thus reinstalling windows. *All the directx features are working with no reported problem there.*

Hey I've got a problem with my computer and i cant figure out what it is exactly so i dont know where to start on fixing this.
Basicly when im playing a high powered game i.e World of Warcraft its crashing quite often turning the window into a black screen and then crashing my computer, as if its something to do with my graphics or spec not able to run it.
I cracked my computer screen a few months ago and lately got it fixed and since then this problem started to apear, i've never had a problem with this before then, I thought it may possibly be from getting a new screen i might need to reinstall my graphics drivers which i moved onto doing and it still didnt help my problem
I've got 3.00 GB of RAM
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T9400 @ 2.53GHz
My 2 graphics cards are ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3870

So its more then enough for world of warcraft or most other high spec games
It would be greatly Appriciated for your help.

Hello there, I've got a problem with my computer that's been bothering me for a long time now.
If possible, I'd like any of you to help me identify the problem, and find a solution.

I've never been able to fix this problem, on what should be a perfectly fine computer, bought new in march 2008. Full spec list in the end of the post. OS is Windows XP Pro.

The problem is that the computer is either crashing completely, or forcing games to shut down when I'm playing games. What I've come to think is that my power supply can't handle the hardware that's in the computer, when all the parts are being used maximally. Here's what I'm thinking: When a game that demands the whole computer to work at maximum capacity is running, the power supply will attempt to deliver the power all the hardware parts need to function properly at full speed. 'Say the computer actually need a 550w power supply to function properly, but the power supply i have only works at 500w, it will actually try to deliver 550w, ultimately causing it to "overheat", and force itself to reboot as a means of getting cooled down or simply slowing down to work at normal capacity - instead of keeping on working at more than 100% capacity over a longer period of time, which would end up destroying the power supply altogether. The crashes rarely occur when I do anything other than playing demanding games, basically any game that's got high hardwar... Read more

Answer:Computer Extremely Slow - Applications Crashing Computer

You've got multiple antivirus programs installed and running in that computer.

That in itself will bog down a computer because they're fighting each other.

I suggest that you get rid of everything that's associated with Lavasoft Ad-Aware and AVG.

Also get rid of Spybot - Search & Destroy and replace it with SUPERAntiSpyware 5.0.0.1150.

SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware(which you already have) work well together in combating malware, spyware, rogues, hijackers, etc..

Answer:Computer Lemon? Brand new computer keeps on crashing

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

The error that you`re getting is often a hardware incompatiblity issue, or a driver issue.

One of your minidumps crashes at SSI.SYS. I can`t find any info about this driver. Do you recognise it?

One of your minidumps crashes at SYMEvent.SYS. This is your Symantec Event Library. Sometimes turning off the live update for your Symantec/Norton security product can solve this known issue.

Alternatively, you might want to try a different security product.

One of your minidumps crashes at ntkrpamp.exe. This is a Windows system file. Try running Windows updates.

One of your minidumps crashes at ALCXWDM.SYS. This is your onboard sound driver. Try uninstalling, and reinstalling the driver. Check with your mobo manufacturers website for a updates drivers.

Question: Screen Crashing

Hey guys, I don't know if this is a hardware problem, but I'm just guessing. Occasionally my monitor turns off on its own and when it comes back up a bunch of stripes and static show up on screen. Then, I have to manually restart my computer by holding the power button and then turn it back on, so I was wondering how can I fix this situation.

Hi,

I have had a problem with my computer screen lately. Whenever I turn the computer on, and surf the web, about 4 minutes into surfing (or playing a game), the screen crashes, the computer locks up, and turns rainbow colors or it turns all white, with little black streaks all over. It just recently started to happen. Now it happens much more frequently. What's happening and what should I do?

Thanks!

Answer:Screen keeps crashing

No one? This is starting to get pretty serious, I have a lot of important data on this computer.

Windows 7 Ultimate Edition 64 bit

Hello, I've been crashing... monitor turns off with computer still on, but nothing works.
I have to force restart/shutdown with the buttons. I've cleared my drivers and used driver sweeper to help clean. After i restarted computer i applied updated drivers from the Nvidia website, and problem still occurs.

EDIT* I did the FurMark Stress Test for the GPU, not a over heating issue. And got a new 550 psu. I don't think it's a power issue cus this is the reason i got a new one...

Answer:Crashing Without A Blue Screen

Hi there,

My computer is a self-build and has been working fine for a couple of weeks now but just recently there has been a problem with starting up which sometimes happens, sometimes doesn't and I'm a bit stumped why. My guess is that it's a fault with the motherboard or the BIOS since it crashes on the POST screen. I've posted a "screenshot" of the problem below.

Spec:
Gigabyte GA-P35-S3L Motherboard
Intel Q8300 2.5Ghz Quad Core CPU
Corsair 4GB 800Mhz DDR2 RAM
Seagate 1TB Internal Hard Drive
HIS HD3870 512MB Graphics Card

Any suggestions?
 

Answer:Crashing on Startup Screen?

I see it posting but am unsure of the problem you've described by the screenshot as to what your saying? Are you saying when you boot the system does nothing or are you saying it posts through the bios and then freezes? that's a mighty big HDD your running
but am not seeing what OS your running. Can you describe exactly what the system is doing when it doesn't work? Does it work in an F8 bootup into SafeMode? Let us know...Jazz

Hi all,

I've had Windows 7 since the release date, but for some reason it has stopped working. I can start up my PC, but at the login screen it crashes (sometime bluescreen, sometimes not). I tried safe mode, debug mode, CD-boot, system repair, but it just crashes when I get past the part where Windows does some basic starting.

The problem started today, I went downstairs to get some breakfast, and when I came back my PC was restarting. Then I tried starting it again, but it crashed on the login screen (blue screen). At that point I was able to get into safe mode, but for some reason I'm not able to do that either anymore.

System specs in my profile, running W7.

Does anyone have a clue what could fix my problem?
Thanks,

Jesper

hi i just brought a second hand 1020 for 155 pounds. there were a lot iof infentismal silver scratches in the camera circle area but the main possibly negative symptom is that i had unknowingly run out of battery and the screen froze in thousands of dull not bright multi colours. i took the sim out put it back in then hooked it up to my computor and soon the normal boxes on the screen and functions were working and the thousands of dull pixilations had gone although i wasn;t in the room when it came back to normal
is this normal behaviour when the battery is low or should i send it back
matt

Answer:[L1020] Screen crashing?

Send it back. The phone should just shut down when the battery level becomes critically low.

Hey!

My computer has been all weird the last week or so.
It started with some random crashes or freezing sometimes. But now everytime i start the computer i get a blue screen/or it frezes after just a couple of minutes of using it. Also, sometime when i start the computer, it says that i dont have a keybord plugged in, which i have.

I'm using Windows 7 RC, That's build 7100 right?

Maybe it has something to do with the motherboard?

This is what the bluescreen says:

Hi all, recently I've had issues crashing to a white screen while playing L4D2. Basically my sound loops for a second, screen goes black, then switches to white, the computer then stays on, forcing me to manually shut it down. This only happens while running games (such as Left 4 Dead or Modern Warfare 2).

I suspect overheating, however my CPU temp is always 40C or so, an my GPU is 70C WHILE GAMING.

It really seems to be overheating... to discard overheating, try to play such games with open case - Remember to maintain an obstacle clearance of at least 15cm around the case.

Answer:XP blue screen crashing

Hi, the two most likely causes of this problem will be your RAM or the graphics card or driver.

With the power disconnected, remove the graphics card and clean the contacts with a soft pencil eraser and blow out the slot on the motherboard and the cards fan/heatsink with a can of compressed air (available from any computer store). Refit the card, boot up the PC and see if there is any improvement, if not continue with the next set of instructions.

•Download the latest graphics driver from the Nvidia site for your card and version of windows and save it to the desktop.
•Go into Device Manager and locate the graphics card under Display Adapters, right click on it and select Uninstall.
•Run through this routine and locate any/all graphics drivers and delete them. Do not reboot, just close all the boxes to get back to the desktop.
•Double click on the driver that you saved to your desktop to install it.
•Now reboot and check the PC's performance.

If the problem persists now follow the next set of instructions to test the RAM.

Preliminary checks
You should first check the model of RAM stick that you have on the manufacturers site for the recommended voltage setting and then make sure it is set correctly in the PC's Bios. An incorrect voltage setting may be the reason for your problems so test the PC's performance again if the voltage was incorrect.
Errors can also be caused by dirty contacts, mismatched sticks... Read more

Hello,

My brother's computer has quite an annoying wee issue playing games and watching full-screen films. The games affected seem to be the newest ones, with the except of COD MW 2. All older games appear to work.

The game he's trying to play now is The Sims 3. He gets as far to make his family and go to the neighbourhood, but then the game crashes to a plain black screen and it's locked there. There is no sound and the computer has to be rebooted. Apparently, other games don't last very long either (5-10 minutes) before doing the same.

It appears to happen when watching videos online as well, although only in full-screen. It doesn't crash to a black screen, but a colour similar to what was being displayed in the flim (ie, pink or tan).

The drivers have been updated and I can't seem to find any solutions online. Help?

Hello,

For a while now, my computer has been having this problem...

When I run a few programs or do hardware intensive things (like gaming, or running multiple apps.) Sometimes my computer will blue screen. However, the blue screen has no writing. It just appears for a couple of seconds then the PC restarts. The other problem is (Under the same circumstances) the screen just displays 'No input' and the audio stops, the computer stops responding. However when it does this it does not restart it just stays on crashed with no display.

Dows any body know how I could fix this?

Thanks a lot,

Floonds.
 

Answer:Blue Screen and Crashing

You are in the Vista forum and you need to give a complete description of the system.

Installed ram? CPU type/speed?

Upgrade or Clean install or OEM version (such as HP, Dell, etc).

Video card? Latest drivers for Vista?

The most likely possibilities are insufficient memory, overheating or display card issues.

The "no input" message suggests a graphics card or chip failure and it is the monitor that is receiving "no input"

I've been experiencing a problem that seems to be progressively worsening. In general, it only seems to manifest when playing games, and even then, only specific ones seem to trigger it. Sometimes it happens moments after a game starts, other times I can go hours. If I'm lucky, sometimes I can catch the following error bubble:

Granted that is a slightly old image as my nvidia drivers are current. Either way, if I'm not forced into a restart, games reboot all garbly and I have to do it anyway. I have taken to trying to monitor my temperatures, and in general my graphics card seems to idle around 50C. When games like Rift or Tera are active, temps hover between 60-65C in most cases, though I acknowledge Tera has some optimization issues in some areas that may creep it up to the 70s. In attempts to find the cause of this issue, the best I've found is maybe my graphics card, power supply, or even my motherboard is about to croak. None of which are appealing outcomes.

And now some stats:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
Original OS: Windows XP
System Age: About 4 years old
OS Age: About 2.5-3 years
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E8500 @3.16Ghz and @3.17Ghz
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX285
Motherboard: P5N-D
Power Supply: 750W (Unsure, but this is an Area 51 Alienware unit)

What I've tried : scanned for virus using Nortons 360, cleaned disc using disc cleanup, used disc defragmenter. Then bought regdefense by xionix and ran registry clean up many times. Used spybot several times...Still it crashs with the resultant blue screen. Im sorry but I dont remember the data from the blue screen. The screen jus says something windows had to shut down etc. If its helpful, I can record all the data.

Answer:crashing with blue screen

System manufacturer and model?Did you check the manufacturer's website...for a history of your initial problem?Running registry cleaner software...was not a good move, IMO.Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons: Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entrie... Read more

Hi All,
Now where do i start! SO basically i have a 4 year old Alienware that likes to black screen every so often, more than not i will get a single ear piercing beep or maybe i will get looping sound and the monitor will have a flashing power button.
I always have to do a hard reset after this and maybe 1 in 10 of these will give me a long beep followed by 3 short beeps which on the phonenix bios list says its a keyboard error?! (very confusing) then it wont boot at all and i have to hard reboot.
It mainly crashes while playing games(MechwarriorOnline) but sometimes i can be browsing the internet and it will just go black screen. Earlier i was running a mem test and it did it.
I ran the recommended CPU-Z and the GPU-Z monitors and kept them recording just as it crashed to which i have attached.
The biggest mystery i have come across, well 2 really is that in the bios my PSU is showing a steady 12.01v but i can clearly see in the CPUID screen shot i took it shows 9.200V.......any suggestions? could this be causing my PC to black screen? PLus i also heard that my Motherboard Nvidia 790i ultra, never liked Ram that was under 1.65V but in my bios my ram is running at 1.5v, once again could this cause issues?
I'm looking at upgrading my GPU to a 660GTX ti and maybe my power supply but that depends on what you all think is my issue here.
My PC spec is as follows
Alienware Area51
Intel Q9450
Nvidia 790i Ultra
4 meg DDR3
Nvidia 280GTX
X-FI Fatal1ty sound card
PSU 750watt (no idea w... Read more

Answer:Black Screen crashing

As a first step I would advise ensuring that all cables and connections are firmly in place, both inside tower, on and between motherboard and drives etc. and external to keyboard, monitor, mouse etc. Reseat everything including RAM and Cards.
By 'Black Screen' I presume you mean no display on monitor? as opposed to having a black screen with flashing cursor? I would have thought if the pc was crashing you would get a BSOD.

Hallo together,

I installed the XP Mode on my Windows 7 Professional machine. First, everything went fine; the programs I needed the xp mode for ran w/o any problems.
Since one start of ie (or better Win update) the machine (not only the xp mode) keeps on crashing in the same bluescreen.

The shown Stop Error is the same every time:
0x0000007f (0x00000008 0x807EB750 0x00000000 0x00000000)

I tested the RAM by using memtest - no errors.
The other hardware seems OK, too. An enable/disable function of virtualization is not available in the Bios.

My System:

AMD Athlon ii x2 240 2,8Ghz
4GB RAM DDR2 800
Mainboard Foxconn A7GM-S 2.0
Graphic NViDiA 9400 GT
2x WD IDE HDD
SATA DVD-ROM und DVD-RAM

I uninstalled/reinstalled VirtualPC and XP Mode several times, but it still crashes on starting the mode.


Any ideas anyone?

I am running XP SP2 on a Pentium 4 3.0ghz with 512mb of RAM. A couple of days ago my monitor began flickering (seemingly turning off and on again very quickly). The computer also seemed very slow. Eventually I was unable to boot to anything but a blank screen. It was like the monitor was not recieving any signal after the initial boot sequence. In safe mode I reinstalled my video driver and was then able to boot to windows normally. I thought the problem was solved but I am still experiencing problems. Whenever I use any type of media (ie iTunes, RealPlayer, or a 3d game) the computer slows way down and the screen begins blinking again. If I continue attempting to use one of these programs the screen eventually goes completely blank like before and I am forced to manually restart. I ran a full diagnostic on my memory, motherboard, and HD and everything checked out. I am wondering if this could be an ActiveX problem or if I should try reinstalling my video driver again. Help!

Answer:Screen flickering/crashing when using multimedia

Just a thought but try taking the graphics card out and popping it back in again. It sounds like the problem I had a few years ago.And this sorted it.
Hope it will work for you as well.

Answer:laptop keeps crashing with blue screen

Hi

Your crash dumps looks like the typical ones which can be initiated by downloading torrents. Please try the below steps.

1. Download and save the latest LAN driver.

Download and save Win8 and Win8.1 Auto Installation Program from the below link.

Realtek

2. Now uninstall "Realtek Ethernet" driver from "Control Panel--> Programs" and reboot the system. If not listed there, uninstall from "Device manager" with "Delete driver" option selected.

Like this :

3. Install the latest driver we downloaded earlier. Also check whether there is a driver update available for your wireless adapter in "Windows update". Right click on the "Ralink WiFi" adaper and select "Update driver". Let it to auto search and install any updates (make sure internet is connected through Ethernet port) .
If the blue screens continues, uninstall the torrent client as a test and report how the system works.

Hi everyone, this is my first post and i am new to the forum and i am not sure what i should do with this problem that i am having. My computer will all of a sudden crash and get the blue screen. I have had my PC for a year now and i have never had this happen before.

Problem Event Name : Bluescreen
BCCode:24

I have never had a problem like this before and i really have no idea what to do. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron 15R running Windows 8.1. Here is the config:

Also with a AMD 8500M/8700M graphic card.
I don't know what is wrong, the laptop works fine for about an hour and then it turns off and the screen turns into an old T.V. without cable, kind of like this:



Then I have to remove the batteries or hold the power button and if I start it again instantly then it it will still show the fuzzy screen like an old T.V. I have to keep the laptop powered down for about three to four hours for it to work again but after an hour it will again show the same error.

I tried to give it for repairs but even they don't know what exactly is wrong with it.

I even tried checking in the Event Viewer but the Event Viewer has stopped recording logs since the last few months.
Why is all this happening?

Answer:Crashing after an hour, screen goes haywire.

Hi Lolcocks ^_^,

Kindly follow the instructions over here -
Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Upload the ZIP file in your next post.

According to your description, it seems that the Internal Graphics Processing Unit might be dead. But, I will need those reports.

Till the time you are awaiting my response after you upload the log files, run Furmark according to the below instructions and see if you find any errors and report back the temperatures (thanks usasma)-





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

Hello...

Since Yesterday games crash my computer, the monitor only shows black screen [there is no response from keyboard, windows etc] and there is a strange noise perhaps from the power supply, I can't figure out where the noise is from...

This only happen when I'm playing games, no particular games, all games crash this way after 5 mints MAX. My only option is to reset the computer from the button on the case.

I'm not sure there is a blue screen involved in here I've unticked Automatically restart in Startup and Recovery and didn't see any black screen when the games crashed...

I've found a crash dump in C:\Windows\LiveKernelReports\WATCHDOG, I've run a little Analysis with WinDBG, I hope it's helpful:
