Preferred Solution: BSOD related with Windows 7 software not hardware

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

Please help if you think the problem can be solved.


Some information about the BSOD is needed. Provide a camera snap of the BSOD screen at least which will give the onscreen codes.

Hello Related? Software Hardware Bsod: Or everyone Bsod: Hardware Or Software Related? New member with an old problem BSoD For about two months now I ve been having those Actually it s been happening ever since Bsod: Hardware Or Software Related? I installed a new sound card SoundBlaster X-Fi Extreme and a new graphic card GeForce GT Mo I ve cleaned up my registry as best I could updated my drivers and spent way too much time looking at Minidump files too no effect Recently though a pattern has appeared which Bsod: Hardware Or Software Related? is a little weird and which has me thinking that the problem may not be driver related Here s what s happening Last weekend I installed an old game for my wife I did the usual installing and rebooting and then she started playing About an hour and minutes later I get the old BSoD so I let the system reboot and she starts playing again After another hour and minutes later the PC gives another BSoD So out of curiosity we keep going and everytime after about an hour and minutes later the system gives me a BSoD and reboot Now considering this strange behavior and since the analysis of the Minidump files is inconclusive Trap Cause Unknow Unexpected Interrupt Unknown Floating Point Analysis Inconclusive Blahblahblah the origin of these BSoD may be something else So HardwareUnless one of the new card is not fonctionning properly my first hypothesis is that the power supply may not be up for the job of running two new cards on top of what it used to run The previous sound card was integrated and the old graphic card a GeForce GS may have been less power hungry than the new one So is it possible that I simply need a stronger power supply And if so what kind would I need SoftwareNothing new has been installed there but I did start using Clean Boots around the same time So maybe something is supposed to load on boot is not because of the clean boot and is causing this problem It may just be my imagination but looking at this weird pattern it s almost like the system is BSoD-ing because its running out of memory or something Anyway time to look around these boards and try to find an answer to all this But if anyone has a suggestion let me know Thanks--Dev

A:Bsod: Hardware Or Software Related?

What error messages do you get for the BSOD?

What key errors are reflected in Event Viewer?

If I suspect a hardware problem...I just remove the hardware I have doubts about...and try to run the system without it.

I also try the hardware on that "spare system" I allow myself (I have 2 desktops).

In your case, I would have tried the devices one at a time...both on the problem system and on another system running the same O/S.

If each worked independently of the other, I would then try to get them to play together.

Sometimes...it just doesn't happen.

A:Is this BSOD hardware or software related?

Related to Alpha Networks Filter driver. Yours from before win 7 was released. Update or remove.
I do notice McAffee which is a frequent cause of BSOD's. I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST!

Hi everyone, I have a self-built PC running Windows 7 Home Premium. Specs are: 2.5GB Quad Core Intel CPU, 4GB of RAM and an Asus GeForce 7200.

I downloaded a program (sysfan I think it's called, I'm posting from a different computer), which showed that everything was fine apart from the GPU temperature which, over the evening I ran the program stayed at around 60 degrees C, everything else was between 20 & 30 degrees.

I was thinking of upgrading to this:
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/174120

My only real concern is whether my PSU will be able to handle it, I have a 390 watt Seasonic PSU.

Thanks for any help.

A:Random BSOD's Not sure if it's Hardware or Software related

Seasonic is a good power supply brand but we're not going to recommend you run any pci-e card on anything less then a 550w.

However 60c isn't enough to cause blue screens. While it's too hot for an idle , it's not enough to be causing the problem.

Hi to all this is my first post , I will like to see if someone can tell if this is a Hardware or Software related?

I went to my sister house and she told me the computer do not boot up and when we try it again the screen displayed in small letters "no sistem imput"

can someone help me to find out the problem?
 

A:Hardware or Software related?

Most likely cause is a failed hard drive. If the computer is three years old, or more, or has a Quantum, Maxtor, or silver colored Western Digital drive, that is the problem most of the time.
Luckily you can now get large drives cheaply at www.newegg.com, www.zipzoomfly.com, www.directron.com, www.outpost.com, www.TigerDirect.com, and many others.
Do you have the install disc set that will be needed.
If you have valuable data that will need to be recovered, that can SOMETIMES be done, but that is a separate question.

Hello I'm going to be one of those people who made an account here because it's the first result for a tech support forum due to it's name Hopefully someone on here knows a bit about what's going on Problems, Several hardware or related. if not software sure as help would be much appreciated As I said in the title Several Problems, not sure if hardware or software related. of the thread Several Problems, not sure if hardware or software related. I'm have several problems and I'm unsure if they are hardware or software related My laptop is a Dell Inspiron Several Problems, not sure if hardware or software related. It's about years old I am running Windows The problem possibly began a few weeks ago when my AVG virus spyware protector detected two trojans that they could not remove from my registry As a default response I used a System Restore to a point before I got that notice I made sure AVG was up to date and ran it again it did not detect the trojans anymore I have run AVG scan several times now and it doesn't detect anything so I'm unsure if this incident is related or simply a coincidence The true start of my problems was several days ago when my laptop was no longer able to come out of sleep mode I would close the laptop leave it be come back to it and when opening the laptop nothing happens It remains a black screen and the only way to get the laptop to turn back on is to turn it off and reboot it via the power button This does not happen every time but definitely the majority of the time Just to make sure it wasn't the problem I updated several of my drivers audio video BIOS which did not resolve the problem The problem has now escalated as I also cannot restart my laptop naturally When I press the restart option from the Windows button on my desktop it begins the process of shutting down properly but hangs on a black screen like when I try to open my laptop I have to press the power button to actually turn the laptop off and then again to turn it back on Just recently a completely new problem has begun as well After a few hours of use my connection to the internet will fail The internet itself is working fine and all other devices can connect to it However the laptop itself loses the connection to the internet Using Window's options to detect a problem brings back no results I must turn the computer off and then back on to get the internet back At this point I feel all these problems must be related as they all began happening now at the same time after four years of proper working use I should note that my battery is also dying but I've been using the power cord to keep the laptop online I've been using it like this for a few months so I'm unsure if this is related or not I know there's not much to go on here but hopefully someone knows what might be the cause of all these issues

Hi guys I been having a strange problem with my graphics card lately Randomly yesterday I was playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare and suddenly the graphics went crazy on me see attached pictures I can t imagine what would randomly cause this to happen While Is this or problem graphics related? software hardware I originally thought it was a problem with just this game there are small noticable graphics glitches that occur on my computer now On startup for instance the computer screen has tiny white dots going up and down and there are some other minor glitches but nothing extremely noticable Basically I m wondering if this could possibly be a fixable software problem or if it s a hardware issue Last year I had my graphics card suddenly break but the computer was basically unusable after that which leads me to believe this may actually be a driver problem with my graphics card I installed new drivers for the card but it had no effect My card is a Radeon HD The only change in the computer Is this graphics problem hardware or software related? I can think of is that I installed a demo of a game Jedi Knight II which played perfectly fine and played Call of Duty afterwards and everything was working fine for at least a little while before this problem surfaced Any ideas would be greatly appreciated nbsp

A:bsod related to hardware??

Well got no idea what all that stuff means, but you need to find a way of isolating the problem, so start by removing/disconnecting unessential components, such as the Optical drive, secondary HDDs and any extra memory modules (you only need one).
Then if you have more than one memory module try them out one by one and see if it helps.

If you still have a problem, swap out the PSU for one you know works. If you still have problems then its time to really get your hands dirty and do the following:

1.remove the components from the case and lay them on a flat non metallic surface.
2. make sure you are still only using the essential components: Motherboard, processor, 1 stick of memory, HDD and PSU.
3. Switch on the machine by shorting out the power switch pins on the motherboard.
4. Swap out the remaining components 1 at a time until the problem stops. You will already have eliminated the PSU and memory at this point, so try the HDD and processor next, if its still a problem then its almost cirtainly your motherboard.

If you need any help swapping out parts and assembling/disassembling the PC see the animations on my site here: www.pcityourself.com/building

I am having frequent BSOD's always with different error codes. I am basically assuming my motherboard is faulty.

More details here: Blue Screen. BCCode: 1e - Microsoft Community

Basically I have ran memtest 5.01 for 18 hours (8 passes), ran seagate tools, dskchk, I swaped out video cards (the original card which I thought caused problems works perfectly in a friends system).

However, someone mentioned to physically test the ram and plug it out 1 by 1. I was wondering tho if there is a quicker method. Should I use 2 pairs at a time? Or just 1? Or keep 3 at a time and keep swapping 1 at a time.

Or go ahead and trust memtest that none of my 4 modules are bad and RMA my motherboard.

Hi Have been getting BSOD BSOD hardware ; SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION : related? for about a month now and BSOD : SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION ; hardware related? been trying to fix it myself but I really don't know what the problem is I believe it is hardware related either to the motherboard or processor but can't really confirm that either is faulty It started after I installed a SSD so I thought that was the problem for awhile and based my troubleshooting on it being faulty However I don't think it's the issue anymore because I've tried doing fresh installs without it on a HDD and reverted my BIOS to default settings and still have BSOD problems I did get the crashing to stop after I completely disassembled my system and put it back together reapplying themal paste to the processor This made the crashing stop for about a week My temps for the processor don't seem to be dangerously high though Less than C My video card gets a bit hot but says below C But I have tried using a different video card too so I think that it's not the problem edit Crashes usually happen under load gaming but happens while idle as well I will just make a list of the things I've tried I've probably done some other things too trying to Google and find out a solution Can't remember everything I've tried - Multiple fresh installs of Windows and Vista on a SSD and HDD - Tried Memtest for a total of passes and hours - Tried using a different video card with fresh install - Updated BIOS for motherboard and firmware for SSD If there is any information I've forgotten that I should post please let me know Any help that can be provided will be greatly appreciated Thank you

Asacpi.sys

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

Hello everyone Before I tell you my story basic info about my system OS - Windows New hardware (Memory related?) - BSOD x OEM Fresh install of OS CPU - Intel i GHz OC Ghz Video Card - Sapphire Radeon GB MotherBoard - Asus Sabertooth i Power Supply - Corsair VX BSOD - New hardware (Memory related?) Watts Memory - Corsair Dominator GB GB GB tested PC - BSOD - New hardware (Memory related?) I decided recently to buy a new motherboard and new RAM for my system My old PC had the same chipset and same RAM-modules Asus P P D and Corsair Dominator modules so I figured the upgrade would be a breeze Now I never had any problems with the installation of windows it went just fine I installed all the drivers and programs I needed and went to bed The day after when I booted my system up for a second time it went BSOD at the Windows login The BSOD told me something about quot MEMORY MANAGEMENT quot So I took a peek at my new modules and saw that they where different versions vs I'm still waiting for Corsair to answer me about the compability of different module versions I ran Memtest times with these configurations without any errors sticks GB - All channels sticks GB - A and B channels seperate Both old and new sticks stick GB - current config A and B channels seperate No matter how I put the sticks the problem remains But there is one more detail The BSOD only occur when I try to login to Windows No password logins automatically And I have a small but annoying workaround for this change something with the memory modules So if I change anything of this Memory voltage speed placement of modules etc I have no problem at all accessing Windows and when I'm logged in I never ever get any BSOD I've been playing games using Virtual Machines and other resource demanding tasks but no BSOD at all I've decided to sell all my RAM-modules and buy new ones but I would love if someone could take a look at my attachments and tell me why these BSODs come up All the requested files attached to this link Built-in forum attacher didn't work Documents zip Thanks Peter

A:BSOD - New hardware (Memory related?)

Hello,

I'm not one to diagnose BSOD errors, I'll leave that to the specialists over here, but you are very underpowered for an HD 6950. That card needs at least 650W to operate efficiently. I realize that you have no problems playing games currently, and the reason for that being that Corsair PSU's are top quality and can pull more wattage then what's labeled on them and still function without breaking down, for a while at least.

But fast forward time a little bit, and the PSU will decide it had enough. It's going to fail and possibly kill other hardware with it. I would strongly suggest you upgrade to at least 650W, preferably 750W to protect your system from such fate. I'd stick with Corsair as well.

Sounds like hard drive to me.

Download the hard drive diagnostic for Western Digital from here: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?lang=en

You need to burn it to a CD or DVD with ISO burning software. If you need the software, I recommend ImgBurn: www.imgburn.com

Burn the CD and boot from it. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Let us know how it goes. Good luck.

I thought it was a CS GO related problem as the game is relatively new and there were GPU problems in the past when the game was beta I have a NVIDIA GTX M on a Qosmio x Following forums I figured I may have to flash BIOS and update graphics card drivers However despite these updates I kept BSOD'ing every time while trying to launch the game Taking my research further I realized the computer would crash while starting ANY game Even opening the NVIDIA client to change d settings led to a BSOD After a lot of frustration and futile updates I thought perhaps it was an overheating issue and left the laptop off for the night with all USB ports unplugged At first today seemed good since I was able to go through d settings in the NVIDIA control panel with no crash But while returning to the original game that caused problems CS GO I got a bluescreen again I really need to know what is going on as I haven't the faintest clue I've attached a diagnostic error report of one of the crashes there have been many and I am willing to provide any extra information just as long as I get some responses Please help me on this and I will shower you with beneficence goodwill and many internet points Edit I found out there is one more graphics card driver to be downloaded and to update the system Please be patient for a few minutes I'll re-report I'm sorry for the blatant oversight Edit Actually it appears that NVIDIA continues to tell me to update the driver to even though I already have it installed I hope this helps in figuring out what the issue is I'm guessing a faulty driver Should I update Intel display drivers by chance Also Minecraft DeuxEx Human Revolution and Medieval Total War II are all confirmed BSOD's as well

A:Ntoskrnl.exe and memory related BSOD with new hardware

Hi TheDestron,

Welcome to the 8forums.

Unfortunately, I cannot really find a possible cause as a possible solution.
I do find lots of files dating from 2014 and earlier where some might need updating.
Please visit Windows Update and install every update available, it may take a couple of times to get them all.
Please remove Google Chrome while troubleshooting, Chrome lately causes for some people crashes.
Please update the device drivers as far as you can, via the site of the manufacturer of the driver. Do not update through device manager as you'll get always the message that the drivers are up to date.

I would like you to try driver verifier and run some hardware tests so we can get a lead to the cause.



Diagnostic Test

DRIVER VERIFIER

   Warning
Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
Please create a restore point.
Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.
Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.
Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.
If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

   Note
Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.



Diagnostics Tests

Read carefully before proceeding.

   Warning
If you're overclocking your system, revert back to stock clocks now.

   Note
Test the system once the overclock is removed before continuing with the steps outlined below.
Part One: CPU Stress Test
Part Two: MemTest86+ RAM Diagnostic
Part Three: Hard Drive Diagnostics
Part Four: GPU Stress Test


ONE

CPU TEST

Run Prime95 to stress test your CPU. Prime95 - Stress Test Your CPU - Windows 7 Help Forums
   Warning
Your CPU temperatures will rise quickly while under this stress test. Keep a keen eye on them and abort the test if overheating occurs.


TWO

RAM TEST

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 7 Help Forums

   Note

MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.


THREE

HDD TEST

Run SeaTools to check the integrity of your HDD. SeaTools - HDD test - Windows 7 Help Forums

   Note
Do not run SeaTools on an SSD as the results will be invalid.
Run chkdsk Chkdsk - HDD Test - Windows 7 Help Forums

Hi everyone

I've been getting lots of BSOD (same causes every time) when just doing normal windows task. It just occurs as time passes. Not playing a game or doing anything intenous. I recently moved my PC so something might be a bit loose? It must do with my display driver/card because the screens just go black and I cant see the BSOD. There is a loud buzzing/beeping noise through the headphones while this occurs. I must power reset the PC to get it back to normal

Hi.

PC is 3/4 years old with new PSU and HDD in use.
PC was fine after new hardware install.

Had my graphics card OCed for a while (1 year) and had no problems with gaming until about 1 month ago
to which i started getting freezes playing World of warcraft.

I have stopped OCing but this hasnt effected anything.
These freezees still occur in game only but BSOD's happen randomly no matter what.

These BSOD's have only just started.

I haven't ran any tests yet as i wanted to ask for your opinion first with my crash result.

Updated my ATI drivers but had no effect.

Thanks in advance.

Hello there,

I recently built a computer and it has been constantly crashing on me. When I check the mini dump it says that it was either software or thermal related. The temperatures seemed normal so I tried to find the software issue, but couldn't. The mini dump has the same error for every single crash as well.

The computers crashes have no real pattern or causation. They happen when I game or when I start up the computer. I have checked the memory on each stick and they both have passed with no errors.

I uploaded the .zip file (i hope) after running the collector and attached it to this post.

My computer specs are: i5 4460 cpu, Z97S SLi Krait edition MoBO, Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 graphics card, Two 8 GB Corsair Vengenace RAM sticks, 750W Corsair bronze series power supply, samsung SSD 850 EVO 250 GB.

I'd appreciate any help with the matter.

After replacing a power supply and reinstalling windows my computer has not recognized its own ethernet port, a pci slot wireless card, or any other network related hardware. This has been very frustrating because nothing seems to work. Other hardware plugged into the pci slots work fine such as the video card. I have tried adjusting options in the bios and even flashing the bios to a newer version but neither have worked. I had the newest drivers installed for the wireless card and ethernet port installed(realtek) but the hardware is not even recognized at all in the hardware manager. The only device with a yellow question mark was a device labeled as "SM Bus Controller". Can anyone please tell me what I am doing wrong and how to fix the issue?

A:Boot/hardware failure related to Windows 10?

You're correct IMO.  It seems highly coincidental, but the symptoms do seem hardware related.
 
I would first suggest running Startup Repair (for W7) as the system hasn't been updated yet.  https://www.winhelp.us/repair-your-computer-in-windows-vista-or-7.html
 
Is there any chance that the hard drive is overfull?  If it is, it may not be able to boot because of the lack of room for operations that Windows has to perform.
 
You can try these bootable hardware diagnostics (if you can boot from removeable media):  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html

As title suggest win freezes minutes after start up..

A little about my machine;

I have too big of a power supply so this has created a lot of dust inside the machine. And this problem Makes the machine to hot inside. (changed thermal heat compound 3 times last 3months)

In the past when the thermal heat compound has Started to be faulty the computer has just shout down This problem is different.

Last day the machine froze for the first time...I thought It most likely where a virus. So I decided to replace the hard drive And make a fresh install of Windows 7 after about 4 h of use it froze again. I'm thinking this is hardware related? Please help

Hi

I'm pretty sure this is an hardware problem and not a software problem.

When booting the PC the windows xp boot screen loads longer than any computer i have ever seen .

1. It can't be a virus as when i format it still happens

2. I've even tried different Hard Drives so i dont think its that (Recently Bought new 1)

3.I've also used different copies of windows XP (My disk & My brother's Disk)

Any ideas maybe ?

A:Windows takes ages to load (Hardware Related ?)

You may have narrowed it down to memory (though the drive and its configuration may be at fault, too):

MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)
Memtest86

If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

If you are running Vista and can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:

mdsched.exe

Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.

I m running Win k Pro sp patches I have an Epox kha mbd Athlon XP BSOD: do? and Software to what Hardware My computer BSODs about once a day though sometimes gt days without any direct cause almost always when I m not at my computer Most of the time it lists the NT kernal ntoskrnl or whatever though I ve also seen tcip sys Frankly given that the computer s usage pattern I think those drivers just represent a random sampling what s running behind my back i e mainly idling with some web browser auto updating of pages and perhaps local network stuff BSOD: Hardware Software and what to do?

A:BSOD: Hardware Software and what to do?

epox makes a lackluster product to begin with, and you said yours has capacitor problems. get a new board, as the odds are overwhelmingly in favor of the board being bad. the very nature of capacitors could explain why the computer runs for about a day before crashing.

A:BSod software or hardware?

ok tried to have a mess around myself using verifier and caused more problems. For some reason it started crashing on boot even after I reset verifier and it never gave me the cause just dumped.

So I decided to do a reinstall of windows. Did this and then realsised ive installed it on my other HD. So I'm dual booting with vista 64 on both drives by mistake.

Havent installed my gfx card on the new install am using the onboard 8200 to give see if i get any crashes. Will see how it handles some games tomorrow.

But what i need to know in the mean time is how do I go about removing vista from the old HD. I've had a google and can only find going back to XP and dual booting but I would have thought there has got to be another way. Would prefer to unisntall it rather than format it, but if thats all that can be done can someone point me in the right direction please.

Hi!

Had some issues with my laptop in december and eventually handed it in to the store which I bought it from. They sent it along to a workshop who changed the motherboard. I just got the computer back earlier this week, but I'm experiencing similar issues, though not as severe as it was in december.

Basically the system seems unstable and i get BSOD's randomly. I'm struggling to find a pattern as to when it happens, and the error-codes are different. Since I got it back from the workshop I've had 5 BSOD's, as you can see in the attached file. Back in december before I handed it in the first time I would get several BSOD's a day.

Is anyone able to identify the source of the problem? I suspect it's hardware related, but I'm no expert.

Thanks in advance!

I've opened a topic here about my BSOD and freezing problems, but hence this issue has clues pointing to possible errors in both Hardware (no internet on startup after freeze, I had very simmilar problem 4 months ago, with different OS installation) and Software (It all begun after downgrading from Chrome Dev channel to "Stable" one, happens more frequently when Stable Chrome and/or uTorrent is running, almost nonexistent when I use only the Chromium Nightly Build) part of my PC, I'm not sure wheter or not the thread needs to be moved into this part of the forum.

The no crashdump issue seems to be fairly common with Windows 7 SP1. There's a potential fix available here. Also make sure you are not using any "PC cleaning" or "optimizing" software, as they love to munch on crashdumps. Lastly, make sure to have Driver Verifier on for future crashes.

My PC has recently started erratic BSOD crashes after a year of bliss. I installed UBUNTU as second boot option and it seems to work normally. Would rather not just give up on Windows 7 - particularly as this is x64 version and UBUNTU is only x86 version; I also have some windows-only software that has run very well on this system.

So I used msconfig.exe to stop loading some software and services and in doing so returned to crash free desktop with most functionality. However reactivating my APPLE IPod related services caused the BSOD to return (with STOP: 0x000000D1 ... with ) indicating IPOD is somehow at fault here??!

I checked some available hotfixes but was not convinced my case was presented.

had been happy with iTunes/Ipod on this PC over last year so surprised to see change.

I wonder what happened.

These were virtually identical and all related to tcpip.sys so your Ipod may be somewhat at fault. I would suspect the driver first and would run driver verifier to find if it is in fact the problem.






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

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

A:Can't boot into Windows 7. Hardware or software?

Well, at least your data is safe !
 
You don't say what make(s) of hard drives you have but both Seagate and WD (and I imagine any other manufacturers) have software programs which can be downloaded from their web-sites for testing hard drives. It is probably worth your while to do this, it at least eliminates a hard drive problem.
 
Assuming your hard drives check out OK, then I think you are going to have to do a re-install of Windows since 'Repair' isn't working for you. You say you used a system repair disc. If this is in fact the install disc, I would use it to do a re-install. If it is purely a repair disc, then, so long as you have the original authentication code, you can use any 64 bit install disc to do the install.
 
As for your last question 'Why does Ubuntu have no problem ...',  I have no idea - except that I have used Linux Puppy myself in much the same circumstances !

According to my antivirus (Avast), I have 8 system registry issues; before I used Avast, I used the default antivirus program (Microsoft Security Essentials) that includes the firewall; however, now, I cannot activate the firewall. I've tried enabling it using the Run program, but the firewall nor Microsoft Security Essentials is listed in the list. I then used command prompt to do a scan over any registry issues on my laptop, and it had found several that it could not fix. If Avast is accurate, then I have 8 system registry issues.

Now I am wondering if a re-installation of Windows 7 would fix both software and hardware issues? Or would it simply only fix one? I'm considering sending my laptop in for several fixes: screen replacement, defective touchpad, and to fix these registry issues. However, since I'm doing these, I figured I might as well get a hardware diagnostic.

A:Would reinstallation of Windows 7 fix software and hardware issues?

What version of Avast are you using. I'm not familiar with the Registry reporting you mention.

If you mean that there are 8 entries in the registry that are related to viruses, they should probably be, at minimum, quarantined.

Don't do that yet though, I'd like to see what they are first.

If the Avast version you have includes a firewall, that will supersede and replace the Windows firewall.

Go to Control Panel > Action Center
expand the security drop down
What does it tell you about Network firewall (ON, OFF ... Winadows Firewall, Avast firewall?)

it firefox wont stay open,

try this, (not a full fix but it will stop the program from closing)
right click on the firefox shortcut icon

then go to ptoperties then click on the tab that says compatability

then run in compatability mode of windows 98.
this should stop it from closing
(not 100%sure if windows 2000 has this.)
i used windows 2000 for aout a week then decided it sucks and went to windows xp.

(windows 2000 always crashed when i would have 2 games running at the same time)

now with windows xp, i can do a msonfig tweak and registry edit
and i can now run battlefield 1942, and starwars jedi academy at the same time with no problem

So my cousin wanted his laptop formatted so i inserted the Windows 7 DVD and formatted the 2 partitions that he had created and then deleted them.. so i got 1 full hard drive of 150 GB... then i installed Windows 7 on it...

Then when i tried to boot up i got the error "windows failed to start. a recent hardware or software change might be the cause" and i got some options... i selected continue with windows 7 and then got another message saying "Setup is starting services" and stucks there... i also cant boot via safe mode.... it will load some files but then it will restart and nothing will happen...

I am pretty sure that if i re-install Windows 7 it will show these messages again and again..

How could i fix this problem that im having?

Thanks.

Where did you get Win7 installer? How is this being activated?

Try wiping the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command.

In BIOS setup set to optimal defaults. Check SATA controller setting - set to AHCI to try install.

Been getting fairly regular BSOD's that only seem to happen when using a web browser. Chrome BSOD fairly regularly. Firefox less so (Only once). I've also had a vssc.exe BSOD when the pc was idle. Windows fully up to date. All drivers up to date. No conflicts. I've run a sfc scan with no errors or problems reported.

The pc is brand new and I have the feeling that something has not been set-up correctly.

Any help appreciated.

A:BSOD browser related/vssc.exe related

I am not sure why you would use two antivirus ..... AVG and Avast at the same time..... The BSOD are all related to this -- file manger driver ...

My recommendation.... please uninstall both and start using MSE - Microsoft Security Essential... Its light on the system as well.

Have you ran a sfc/scannow? Can you boot into safe mode? A reinstall may be your only option. Have you been using any registry cleaners or those all in one type programs?

A:Solved: Lost software & hardware after windows 7 install

Can you be more specific about the "recovery disk"? When I hear "recovery" I think of a set of Recovery DVDs (or CDs) that will "recover" the system back to factory defaults, including all drivers and bloatware. But you seem to be saying that maybe it's a Windows 7 Installation DVD.

You should be able to get the drivers from Samsung's web site. Install the chipset ones first.

So the question is where do i go now to get the machine back to the way it was when i bought it?Click to expand...

Many manufacturers will sell you a set of Recovery DVDs for a fair price.

And one thing my copy ,past control stopped working thats not working good .

In short, laptop mouse is flashing continue and performance is very bad with unknown problem.
I am not getting whats going on please help me to find out issues.

A:Windows Seven Unable to Find Hardware or Software Issues

bhatskar, I think you may have more than 1 problem. But, first open a elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.

Also, click start button, type device manager, click on the Device manager entry that appears, and see if there are any yellow triangles or exclamation marks there and tell us what they are on or next to..

You are also running a X64 OS with 2 GB of ram. A 32 bit (X86) OS can address only about 3.5 GB of ram. Your 64 bit OS can use much more ram. Try finding out from your manual how much and what kind of ram you can use, and buy at least a 4 GB kit and use only that kit of ram. I believe you will see and improvement. I realize you would like to get your computer running right before spending money on it. So, try the other suggestions first and advise us of the results.

You should also run your hard drive manufacturer's hard drive diagnostic program to rule out any problems with the Hard Drive.

Hi guys,

I need some short and straight-forward answers for these question at this step.
Thank you all very much in advance for the answers. :

1- How is a bit stored on RAM or HDD? I mean, there should be some units like a box to be used for storing a bit whether that bit is 1 or 0. If so, what is the name of such boxes? Are they named flip-flop?

2- How is a virtual CPU used and what is the hyper-threading?

3-What is a cache? What is its levels for (L1, L2, L3)? Is a cache visible? Can CPUs work without a cache? And how do I be able to see the memory size of my computer?s CPU cache?

4- Do ROMs exist nowadays? If not, what instead of them?

5- Is there something named ?Flash Dish??! (I haven't heard this!)

6- What is a cluster in a HDD?

Here's my problem. I have a Dell Dimension 5150, I'm using an iKey usb keyboard loaned to me because my regular keyboard died. An hour ago I got a virus (Yay, team Stopzilla) and decided, okay, I'll just reformat my hard drive and run a clean slate. But...BUT...when I turn off the computer and try to go into the bios, the machine won't recognize the keyboard until Windows XP is running! I cannot get into my bios! Any suggestions? I need help FAST!
 

A:Xp-related Hardware Issue?

You will need to connect a PS2 keyboard, if available. Or a wired USB keyboard, is this "iKey" keyboard is wireless.

If wired, try different USB ports on your machine. Some may be recognized before entering Windows.

----------------------------------------------

Also, if you have a virus, I suggest not formatting your harddrive and instead posting to the Virus & Other Malware Removal section of this site.

There are trained Malware Removal Experts there who can clean your computer.

Before you post there though, you need to read this.

Computer worked great for like 2 years. Then had a problem that I fixed with microsoft windows recovery console.

Then about 3 weeks later the computer broke down again, this time, it seemed more complicated.

I got problems saying something was wrong with system32/drivers/ntfs.sys

When trying to boot from CD:

- "setupdd.sys could not be loaded. The error code is 4. Setup cannot continue. Pres any key to exit"

-An unexpected error (536805376) occured at line 176 in d:\xpclient\base\boot\setup\arcdisp.c.

No idea where to start. Could it be a problem with the physical hard disk or physical memory? Where do I go from here.

BTW I do not have any other RAM or HD that I can plug into this comp to test it out.

Thanks a lot in advance for whatever help you can provide.

Looking at your dump files I see that its your video drivers are causing the issue

Lets use driver verifier in Safe Mode to uninstall your current video drivers
Reboot
Download and install new Video drivers from ATI's website
Reboot

Also follow this link and post files for us to look at
http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ta-452654.html

Also check your windows updates and if any available download and install them

Is your system over clocked? CPU, RAM, Video Card?
if it is please revert back to factory settings

I have a small Acer laptop with windows 7 starter edition on it. (actually its my son's). It suddenly would not boot up saying "the error windows failed to start. a recent hardware or software change might be the cause" i have tried every option and nothing works. i have tried the erecovery management and it just sits and loads. i am not the most computer savy person and cannot really afford to take it in to get it fixed. What can i do to fix this?

thanks for any help

A:Windows 7 64 failed to start a recent hardware or software change

Hello and welcome jbarrio mate am just wondering if you has surge protection on when that power went out? If you did well what exactly can you boot into?

If you have access to another machine maybe make a bootable Ubuntu disk set the BIOS to boot from the optical drive and see if it will boot the Ubuntu if it doesn't do that seems like there maybe is a hardware problem of some sort.

Thank you | Ubuntu < download and burn to a CD and when / if it does boot choose just the run NOT install - there are two options. Once in there you can go about checking drives out and access the net via the Firefox etc.

Seems like if the disc is not working all the way, it may be an error on your cd/dvd disc. However, you could have an issue with the drive. To find out if the drive is an issue, go into the bios and make sure you can see your HDD. If you can, then the problem is likely with the disc/ cd rom. Try using an external cd/dvd rom to install / format your device.

I hope this helps.

Considering that I had this issue on both WinXP64/Kubuntu when I ran them, and Windows 7 now, I am fairly confident that it's not a software problem. My computer locks up, entirely, without any warning. I've caught it freezing half way through opening a window before, leaving the edges un-antialiased... It's a pretty sudden lockup. I'm wondering whether this is an HDD issue, or whether it's the fact I'm running an AMD X3 720 BE with the fourth core unlocked - either way, how would I go about stopping this? At the moment, it's annoying. When I start to work in a weeks time, it will be disastrous.
